Easy Cubes is an apparatus that's been created to help users make lots of frozen ice cubes without ending up with a watery mess. This apparatus, which looks like two ice cube trays facing each other, has a hinge on one side that'll allow it to open up. It also contains a mesh divider between the two attached trays, which will hold 14 cubes each. It's specified that this device is dishwasher safe and that each one has been made with non-toxic material.
The cost of Easy Cubes is $19.99 plus $6.99 shipping. The special TV offer allows you to receive a second Easy Cubes at the discounted price of only $9.99 for a total price of $36.97.
To use your Easy Cubes device, you'll first need to fill the dual-sided tray with water from your tap, a water bottle, or a pitcher. You won't even need to open the tray all the way up to fill it. Instead, in one corner, you'll notice a black tab, which must be pulled up to reveal a small, mouthlike opening. This is the opening through which the tray should be filled. When you notice that water is spilling over the edges of this opening, it's time to stop the filling.
Once you're done filling up your tray with water, push the black tab down towards the closest edge of the tray to close the opening you used to fill it. At this point, if you give your tray a little shake, no water should start flying out.
Next, it'll be time to store your dual-sided tray in your freezer. Unlike ordinary, open ice cube trays, you won't have to be super-careful in regard to how you place this device on a particular shelf. You'll be able to store it either horizontally or vertically, which may enable you to save some space, as the tray has been designed not to spill.
After at least several hours have passed, and you're ready to use some frozen ice cubes, grab a medium to large-sized container and hold your Easy Cubes device over that container. Grab onto each side with one hand, respectively, and give both sides a wiggle. Following that, ice cubes should fall into your container below, and you can pull out the ones you need and use them. The rest can be stored away in the container for later use.
Since each Easy Cubes tray is double-sided, it'll hold a total of 28 ice cubes, instead of the 12 or 14 cubes that one standard tray will typically hold. Between the two sides of the device, there's also a mesh-like plastic divider, which will help water be funneled into each of the 28 spaces in an efficient manner.
Each white plastic tray is free of the potentially harmful chemical compound known as BPA, which is still found in some plastic kitchenware products today. It's also free of any other materials that could be toxic, so you'll know that you won't be exposing yourself or others to toxicity by serving drinks with ice from this type of tray.
If you use open ice cube trays without lids of any sort, the ice cubes can end up picking up unpleasant odors from the rest of your freezer, due to the fact that they're exposed. This won't be the case when you use an Easy Cubes tray to store your ice, though, as its closed design makes it highly resistant to outside odors. Therefore, you won't plop an ice cube from this type of tray into a drink and then discover that the drink has a light taste of mold.
You'll be able to safely wash this entire tray in your dishwasher if you'd like to. If you don't have a dishwasher or would prefer to hand-wash it, you can rinse it with water after each use and with soap and water on an occasional basis.
In the kitchen, you may find few things to be more annoying than cleaning up a liquid spill from your freezer, your countertop, or your floor. Fortunately, when you use an Easy Cubes tray instead of standard ice cube trays, it's unlikely that water will ever make its way to these places for you to clean up. You'll be able to carry this tray comfortably to your freezer, while it's in a closed state, instead of tip-toeing along as you try not to spill droplets from a traditional tray.
Easy Cubes dual-sided ice cube trays are ideal for large families to use since they'll store more cubes at once than the average tray. The same goes if you have multiple roommates or tend to have friends over for iced drinks on a regular basis. If you need to use more than one of these dual-sided trays, you can certainly do so, and because they can be stored vertically, your freezer may accommodate more than a dozen simultaneously.
Easy Cubes trays have been designed for use with water, but there's no reason why you can't fill one of them with juice if you want to make flavored ice cubes. However, it is more important that you give your tray an effective cleaning afterward if you make your cubes with juice, as opposed to making them with plain water. If you'd like to stick to water but make flavored cubes anyway, using flavored water is also a viable option.
When you'd like to use some of the cubes from one of these trays, you'll have to twist the tray and then let all of its cubes fall out at once. If you aren't going to be using all the cubes, you'll either have to store them in an open container or use a utensil to place each cube back in the tray individually. It would be beneficial if a way to remove one or two cubes without getting all the rest of them, too, could be made available.
If you don't have a portable ice maker, and you don't like filling up standard ice cube trays, you might end up making many trips to the store each month to obtain ice. Once you have one or more Easy Cubes trays, though, you may have no problem neatly filling them at home on your own, and then you won't have to make as many shopping trips.
At some point, you may feel the need to melt the ice in your tray and turn it into water. Nonetheless, under no circumstances should you ever heat this type of tray, as its plastic may melt and mix with the frozen water inside. You should also keep your Easy Cubes tray(s) away from any heat sources in your home, as much as possible.
