Good Popsicle mold?

Anyone have a specific one they really like? The new one I bought it was very hard to get the pop out. In fact I pulled out the stick and left the pop in!

  1. Haven't made popsicles in ages, but liked the Tupperware mold. Found that running a little hot water over molds helped a lot in getting them out easily. Then onto a plate (or something) on a sheet of wax paper and back into freezer for a while. Then into those cheap-o, fold-over sandwich bags so they can go into a larger container or plastic bag without freezing to each other.

    1. stainless steel is the only way to go.

      1. i always used plastic ones and just run the plastic part under cold water for a few seconds

        1. Another vote for Tupperware. Getting into a little hot water sure seems to loosen matters up.

          1. I make the every week, these are the ones that I use and it's very easier to get out, just run under hot water for a bit and it slides right out. My only advice is to try not to drop them when they are frozen because the plastic gets quite brittle and will break, otherwise, I really like them, good adult portions too.
