What experts liked
Users can refill partially empty trays, not "all or nothing". Tray size is compact, allows for more stacking. Individual cubes shaped for easy removal, no twisting required.

The no-spill design allows you to put the tray in the freezer sideways.
- A Guide Product
The lid seals in the water in a way that you can tilt the tray to let excess water pour out. That means no spillage, and you can tilt in to fit into any space.
- Kitchenistic
The OXO tray features a silicone lid that seals in the water and lets you easily squeeze out any excess (no mega-cube results this way). Once it’s all sealed up, you can wedge it into your freezer any way you want without fear of leaks.

This ensures a leak-proof environment, perfect when you're in a hurry. We tried several angles before finally approving the "seal" feature on this tablet.
- B4 Best Reviews
This product is famous for its silicone lid technology. This technology seals the water to the ice trays and there is no worry of tilting and tipping of the ice tray when carried from sink to the freezer.

What experts didn't like
Plastic tray can transfer unpleasant taste. Silicone lid does not form leak-resistant seal, trays are not angle-proof. Lid relies on surface tension to work properly.
- BestReviews
The price is a bit on the higher side

An Overview On Ice Cube Trays

Nobody wants a lukewarm glass of iced tea or lemonade on a hot summer day. Ice cubes do an excellent job of keeping these drinks nice and cool. Of course, depending on the type of ice cube tray you buy, you can also use this handy kitchen tool to make everything from popsicles for the kids to herb-infused cubes for the adults to add to their alcoholic beverages.

No matter what type of ice cube tray you decide on, you need to make sure it is free of toxins and that it doesn’t contain any BPA. You don’t want chemicals leeching into the ice you’re going to drink later on. It’s also ideal to check the product label for that FDA approved logo.

Determine whether you need smaller ice cubes that fit most cups, like the Kitch Easy Release Ice Cube Trays, 16-Cube, or larger ice cubes that melt much slower. You can even go with the Ticent Silicone Sphere & Square Ice Cube Trays, 6-Cube, which makes large cubes in both circular and box shapes.

Check whether the ice cube trays can be stacked or not. This is important if you need to make the most of your freezer space. Traditional models are built to be stacked on top of each other, but there’s also the option of going with a tray that has a lid. The Vremi Large Silicone Ice Cube Tray, 8-Cube has a unique lid that also doubles as a tray, which is nice if you need to serve cocktails to your house guests.

Finally, make sure the ice cube tray is built to easily release the ice cubes. You don’t want to have to fight with the tray to get the ice cubes out. The OXO No-Spill Ice Cube Tray with Silicone Lid, 14-Cube releases its ice cubes when the user holds on to the sides and gives the tray a twist, but other models allow you to flip the tray over and simply push on the bottom to pop the cubes out.

DYWM Fun Fact

Did you know Jin Songhao from China holds the World Record for the longest bath in a tub full of ice cubes? He lasted an astounding 115 minutes! Here are a few more fun facts you may not know about ice cubes:

  • Back in 1933, an ice cube tray cost just 50 cents.
  • Before the invention of the ice cube tray, people had to chip away at large blocks of ice to get a little ice to add to their beverages.
  • Rubber ice cube trays were invented after Lloyd Groff Copeman noticed that the icy slush he was walking through just slid off his rubber boots instead of sticking to them.

The Ice Cube Tray Buying Guide

  • It’s important to note that stacked trays can freeze together.
  • Don’t overfill the ice cube trays or the ice will be hard to remove after it sets.
  • Always check the product label for cleaning instructions. Most ice cube trays can be cleaned in a dishwasher; however, some will require hand washing.
  • Ice cube trays are handy for much more than just freezing water. You can use them to make dishwasher detergent packets, sushi bites, peanut butter cups and even seed bombs. You can also reuse old ice cube trays as paint palettes or to store craft supplies.
  • Ice cube trays vary in price based on construction materials and the size of the ice cubes. You’ll find the Kitch Easy Release Ice Cube Trays, 16-Cube uses a traditional design and is the most affordable. You’ll pay a little more for the OXO No-Spill Ice Cube Tray with Silicone Lid, 14-Cube, as it also comes with a lid. The Vremi Large Silicone Ice Cube Tray, 8-Cube and the Ticent Silicone Sphere & Square Ice Cube Trays, 6-Cube are more expensive because they make large cubes.
