The Patent Pending nICE Mug mold has been tested and refined over the course of many years, and many cold Minnesota winter nights.
“Nature freezes in a unique way” says Glenn Auerbach, founder of nICE Mug. The nICE Mug mold replicates exactly how water freezes in a jug of water:
- Thicker at the bottom.
- Curved on the inside.
- Thinner towards the top.
This sounds simple, but replicating nature’s perfection is never easy. We had to figure out how to create a mold that contours the natural shape of the freeze, which makes for a stronger, longer-lasting nICE Mug.
“I’m not a mechanical engineer, but I know grain silos and air tanks are cylindrical for a reason. Pressure spread out evenly makes the container stronger. I learned this from nature – how water freezes in a container when it is left outside on a winter night,” says Glenn.
“It’s really cool to experience how a nICE mug melts, as I sip my ice cold beer. Everything sort of melts down evenly.”
