We have an ice problem in this household. As in - there's never enough. We have one ice cube tray and I like to keep my drinks super cold - as in enough to give me brain freeze. But, that means that the rest of my family are sorely lacking
in the ice cube department. I promise I refill the tray every single time, but when they get ice, they are greeted with water sloshing around in the cubes.
Pratico Kitchen has the answer to my problem. They have a Large Ice Cube Mold that creates 2.25-inch cubes. Tony was super excited when it arrived. No longer would he be lacking in ice! And thus started his stockpile of big ice cubes.
The container itself is flexible silicone. We found that it is best not to fill it all the way to the top, because you might twist it and then have little droplets of water on the kitchen floor. At first, when it came to extraction, I had to adjust to the flexible silicone. I'm so used to rigid plastic ice cube trays - giving those a hard twist and hoping the ice cubes would not break.
But, with this flexible silicone, all you have to do is push on the bottom and the cube slides right out the top - no cracks, no pieces left behind. It's a nice neat cube.
Drop that baby into your iced tea or whiskey and let the chilling commence. You don't have to worry about diluted drinks any longer because the cube does not melt fast enough. Excellent for parties, which is what Tony is stockpiling for. We're going to have a little Labor Day gathering. So, I have towers of ice cubes sitting on my freezer shelves. It's kind of cute, actually. :)
This is well worth the price on Amazon. Check it out.
