Zoku Quick Pop Maker

Is it worth nearly $50 to have faster homemade ice pops?

Published July 1, 2011.

What You Need To Know

When we poured a homemade fruit blend into the Zoku Quick Pop Maker ($49.95) three 2-ounce slots, in just seven minutes the mixture was rock solid—our cue to insert the special key in each pop handle to release the treat. We could repeat the process for two more rounds of pops (nine pops in total) before the unit needed to be refrozen; pops took six to 10 extra minutes to freeze after the first round. While we love the quick gratification this nifty gadget provides, it doesn't entirely eliminate the need for planning ahead: The console, which contains a propriety liquid that gets colder than ice, must be placed in the freezer 24 hours before use.
