Paleta Molds is one of the largest independent wholesalers of commercial stainless steel popsicle molds in the US. We import food-grade, stainless steel popsicle molds preferred by paleteria professionals who make the finest gourmet popsicles.
If you’re looking to start a popsicle business, it’s best to use inexpensive, plastic popsicle molds in the early days to get your business up and running fast. We’ve found that Norpro Popsicle Molds are the perfect ice pop molds for beginners. They’re really cheap – $12 to $20 depending where you buy them – and you’ll be able to pump out ten / 3 ounce (90ml) popsicles per mold every couple hours depending on the size of your freezer and temperature settings.
Armed with about 10 Norpro popsicle molds, you can start a gourmet popsicle business and be up and running in one day for less than $200. How’s that for a low barrier to entry. There are a couple disadvantages to using plastic popsicle molds, however. Your popsicles will be kind of icy because it takes longer for them to freeze in the plastic and get ready to work because the labor of filling, freezing and cleaning plastic molds is pretty tedious.
The Solution is to Buy Commercial Stainless Steel Popsicle Molds
Don’t fret! We have the solution for you right here. Once you’ve gotten the feel for making handcrafted popsicles and have all your recipes ironed out, it’s time to buy stainless steel popsicle molds for your gourmet popsicle shop.

Let’s say it again to let it sink in. Double the amount of popsicles you make, doing half the work to make them. It’s a no-brainer, right? You better believe it is. Step up and buy some stainless steel popsicle molds once you are serious about your popsicle shop.
What to Look for When Buying Stainless Steel Popsicle Molds
So you’re seriously considering to purchase commercial stainless steel popsicle molds for your gourmet pop shop. Well, you’ve come the right place if you are. We have the best stainless steel popsicle molds on the market, used by all the professional paleteros and are standing by waiting to help you!
First, you need to figure out what kind of commercial popsicle molds you’re looking for. Take note of all the specifications of the molds you’ll need beforehand. Things like the size of the individual popsicle mold cavity, how many popsicle molds per unit, what the mold is made from, mold thickness, and if you want stick aligners are all very important details to work out before ordering.
We suggest that when you start out looking to buy stainless steel popsicle molds for a business, you must be sure to:
- Purchase popsicle molds that are manufactured in high quality food grade stainless steel. Cheaply made industrial popsicle molds constructed with inferior raw materials may rust. Be aware of who manufactures your popsicle molds!
- Buy commercial stainless steel popsicle molds that are easy to clean after use. We suggest you buy commercial paleta molds that are manufactured by robot plasma welding and screen polished with smooth finishes – these are the easiest to clean popsicle molds and don’t leave any residues in the bottom of the molds.
- Decide early on what size popsicle mold cavity you’ll need. This will be the size of your popsicle. Do you want to sell small ice pops or huge ice pops, or something in between? Paleta molds come in all sizes, just remember food cost and popsicles melt fast! You can take it from there.
- Choose what kind of popsicle shape you want. We prefer the old time Paletas Mexicanas molds that are basically large rectangular blocks of deliciousness.
- Order stainless steel popsicle molds that are the right dimensions to fit in your freezer. There are stainless popsicle molds that have as few as six molds to units with upwards of sixty pop molds. Just remember once filled with liquid, these large pop molds can get very heavy and you’ll most likely be lifting them out of the bottom of a deep freezer – so be aware of the weight!
This list should give you plenty of ideas to decide what kind of commercial popsicle molds you are looking for. Just below is our inventory of commercial stainless steel popsicle molds. We’re sure we have what you are looking for in stock!
