PURUS Clear Ice System | Frequently Asked Questions
1. Does the PURUS System Replace The ICEBIRG Press?
No. The PURUS Clear Ice System creates perfectly shaped and exceptionally clear “Precursors” or “Ice Slugs” that are optimized to be Pressed into crystal clear Ice Spheres utilizing any of the ICEBIRG Ice Ball Presses.
2. How many Casts can I freeze at one time?
This depends on how many base systems you have. You can only freeze one cast at a time per base system with the PURUS1, or four at a time with the PURUS PRO.
3. Do I need to use boiled, filtered / distilled water?
No. But the quality of your final Ice will be better if you do. However, for personal use I often utilize hot tap water with pretty stellar results.
4. Do the polymers utilized in the construction of the PURUS system negatively impact the flavor of the final Ice?
Absolutely not. Our credo at ICEBIRG is NO FLAVOR POLLUTION EVER. The PURUS System was specifically designed to make sure that only the highest grades of Stainless Steel come in contact with your Ice/Water. Be confident in the fact that we would NEVER utilize materials that could compromise the flavor / purity of your craft ice.
5. Is there a Copper version of this system available?
Currently due to cost and availability, we have no plans to offer the PURUS system in Copper. Though if you would be interested in seeing this product made available, be sure to let us know, as we always take our customer’s requests into account.
6. Why does the PURUS System look so “weird”?
When we were developing this product we spoke to many of our clients about price and time frame. In the end, the overwhelming consensus was “we don’t care how it looks, we want it now, and we want it as inexpensive as possible!”. So with this in mind, we designed the PURUS System to be produced in the most efficient way possible, that still kept stellar performance. We will admit the “style” of the system is a bit “different”. Each customer will have to decide how the feel about the look for themselves, we however feel it actually looks really damn cool! Please let us know your thoughts!
7. Was I supposed to receive “lids” with my PURUS1 / PURUS PRO?
NO. We discontinued the need for lids awhile back due to design improvements.
