Ice Genie is a manual ice maker that'll save you space in your freezer by replacing up to 10 traditional ice cube trays. It'll hold up to 120 cubes at once—enough for a group of friends or family members. When you're not using it to store ice in your freezer, you can also use it to keep bottled drinks cold, and you may even want to fill it with ice cream. It's dishwasher safe, but it's fine to just rinse it off after each use, if it's not filthy.
The cost of Ice Genie is $14.99 plus $4.99 shipping. The special TV offer allows you to receive a second Ice Genie at the discounted price of only $4.99 for a total price of $24.97. Price is from As Seen on TV Commercial page: geticegenie.com
To get started with your Ice Genie, you'll need to fill the entire thing with water. While doing so, you can fill it up to the top, but avoid filling it so full that water might dribble over the sides.
Next, put the spill-proof lid on your cube holder and place it in the freezer. It's best if you sit it somewhere flat so it won't fall over, although its lid will save it from spilling if it does. It's not absolutely necessary that you use the lid each time, but doing so will definitely help you avoid a mess.
Once you've placed your Ice Genie in the freezer, leave it there for at least a few hours to allow the ice within to freeze. In some freezers, this might take a day.
After your ice cubes are frozen, you can take your entire cube holder out of the freezer and separate the inner chamber from the outer chamber. Following that, you'll have to dump the ice that's in the inner chamber into the outer chamber, and gently squish the flexible silicone of the outer chamber to break your ice up into small pieces. Once it's broken up into pieces you find small enough, it'll be ready to use.
Each Ice Genie consists of a solid inner chamber and an outer chamber that's made of flexible blue silicone. The airtight inner chamber is the one that'll hold onto your ice cubes, while the outer chamber freezes them to your satisfaction. You'll also use the textured inside of your outer chamber to help you squish and break up your cubes after they're done freezing.
This ice cube holder comes in an attractive shade of bright blue, so you'll be able to see yours clearly and grab it when needed, even if you've got a crowded freezer.
The Ice Genie isn't a device that you'll need to throw away and replace after a few uses. Instead, you'll be able to refill it with water and put it back in the freezer to make new ice as many times as you'd like. The only thing that would make it less effective would be a hole in its outer chamber, but if you're careful with the device, it probably won't end up with one.
While this cube holder is large enough to hold up to 120 ice cubes, it's small enough to fit in a cooler if you want to take it on an outdoor excursion. It'll certainly come in handy when you're at the park or beach on a hot day and want to make your juice, water or soda extra-chilly.
If you leave a standard ice cube tray or container on a counter, a table or the ground for a half hour or more, the ice cubes within may start to smell. Fortunately, that won't happen when you use the Ice Genie, as you'll be able to plop on its spill-proof lid, which will allow it to fight unpleasant odors.
It's safe to just rinse this ice cube holder if it's not too dirty, but if you think it needs a more thorough cleaning, you can safely put both chambers in the dishwasher.
You'll be able to obtain two Ice Genies at once, so if you have two freezers, you'll be able to put one in each, or save your second one for the cottage or work.
After you've recently taken your Ice Genie out of your freezer and emptied out the ice, you can use it as a drink holder. To do so, simply slide a bottle of your chosen beverage into the inner chamber, while it's resting in the outer chamber. Once your bottle's in there, the ice cube holder will keep it cold for up to a few hours.
With each set of two ice cube holders, you'll receive a set of anti-slip tongs, which you can use to pick up single pieces of ice in order to avoid touching them with your fingers.
Once you've removed your Ice Genie from your freezer, you'll have to break up the ice within it into small pieces yourself, which will require you to hold onto the cold outer chamber. While this may not be as difficult as twisting and turning ice cube trays in order to pop out individual cubes, it'll take a few minutes of time and may be hard on your hands.
Your Ice Genie might look like a convenient container to carry hot or warm foods in when it's not being used, but you must refrain from putting anything in there that's not lukewarm or cold. Hot or warm substances may damage the inner and / or even the outer chamber, and thereby interfere with the device's ability to freeze or chill things.
