I don't know about anyone else but I am forever having a heck of a time trying to remove my ice cubes from my plastic ice cube tray. They always end up splintering and leaving shards of ice cube everywhere. This alone drives me nuts, even though the dog loves getting the broken ice cubes. The other problem I always have is that when trying to wiggle the plastic ice cube tray back and forth to break the ice cubes out it can be quite a work out, the hard plastic isn't very flexible. These factors could be the very reason as to why if you ever come to my house and receive a drink there probably won't be any ice cubes in it.
The above statement about not having ice in your drink was true up until recently when I was sent a set of two silicone ice cube trays from the company Kuuk. These trays are nice, they are made from 100% FDA approved food grade silicone, and are top rack dishwasher safe. They make popping ice cubes out a breeze, although the ice cubes themselves are smaller than when you use the hard plastic trays. These ice cubes remind me of those fabulously perfectly squared ice cubes you find in liquor drinks. Each tray can make 15 ice cubes unlike the traditional hard plastic which only make 12.
I like how simple these are to use, no more fighting with the trays to get your ice out and no more ice cube breaking apart before you even get them to the ice cube storage bin. Overall, I have to say I am a fan of these silicone ice cube trays from Kuuk, it seems as of recently I have developed a fondness for silicone kitchen products in general, they just have so many wonderful qualities.
