The benefits of using MistyStix

So why do you need MistyStix ?

Thanks to its design, it prevents dry ice from coming into direct contact with users, eliminating the danger of ingestion or cold burns.

This means that they can be used in different types of events and configurations without worrying about size compatibility.

Economy and Sustainability

Being reusable and dishwasher safe, MistyStix are environmentally friendly and cost-effective.
Instead of discarding multiple single-use devices, users can rely on MistyStix time and time again, getting lasting value from their investment.

So just how do they do their magic ?


For them to work, just add dry ice.

Dry Ice comes in pellets and consist of CO2 gas that’s been deep frozen into solid pellets. When these pellets then come into contact with any water-based liquid, they heat up  and give off a thick white cloud of vapour. This is the “volcano” effect that is much sought after.

When you then drop a dry ice pellet into your favourite cocktail drink, the resultant effect is really quite dramatic – as you can see in our video.

Now, dry ice has a temperature of -79.5 °C, and that would give you frostbite if the pellet were to come into contact with your tongue, your lips or your skin in general. By putting a dry ice pellet inside a capsule, however, there is no risk of frostbite. MistyStix are designed to safely encapsulate dry ice pellets, ensuring consumers get all the fun of a smoky drink – without any risk of self-injury.

Here is a MistyStix.

The bulb at the bottom snaps open to take a dry ice pellet, then clips shut to keep it – and the consumer – safe.

The clip attached to the stem is used to clip the MistyStix to the rim of the glass, and slides up and down the stem according to the height of the glass.

The bulb at the top is there to make handling easier.

Squeezing the bulb causes it to split open, allowing the barperson to insert the dry ice pellet.

Here you can clearly see that the two halves of the bulb are held together by a hinge, with no risk of one half becoming detached from the other.

At the extreme end of the bulb is a clip. This securely holds the two halves together once the dry ice is put inside the bulb.

Here’s what dry ice looks like.

The MistyStix are designed to hold standard-sized pellets, which is to say pellets that have a maximum length of 46 mm and a maximum diameter of 16 mm.

Placing pellet fragments in the bulb can intensify the fogging effect of the MistyStix.

For both personal and general health and safety reasons, the pellets should be handled using ice tongs.

If these are not available, wear surgical gloves and keep contact with a pellet to an absolute minimum to prevent micro-burns.

Having placed the dry ice pellet(s) in the MistyStix bulb, snap it shut and use immediately.

Insert the MistyStix into the drink, clipping it to the rim of the glass, then stand back and enjoy the spectacle!
