Ice Genie

399 Votes

Rate this product

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.

Total Cost Breakdown

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

How to Use (Step by Step)

  1. Fill With Water

    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.

  2. Place in Freezer (with Lid)

    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.

  3. Wait a Few Hours

    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.

  4. Move Cubes to Outer Chamber

    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.

How It Works

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.

Features

  • Bright Blue

    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.

  • Reusable

    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.

  • Compact

    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.

  • Fights Odors

    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.

  • Dishwasher Safe

    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.

Positive Points

  • Can Get Two at Once

    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.

  • Will Double as Drink Holder

    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.

  • Tongs Included

    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.

Negative Points

  • Must Break Ice Yourself

    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.

Warnings

  • Don't Put Hot Things Inside

    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.

How it's Different from Competitors

The Ice Genie is different from other ice making products on the market in that it is very easy to use. There is no need to fill up ice cube trays with water and balancee the water to remain. Traditional ice cube trays only hold 12 cubes so, in order to get a large number of ice cubes, multiple trays need to be purchased, which takes up space in the freezer. With this product, you can fill up the container with no potential for spilling. There is also no need to balance the ice cube trays on top of each other in order to fit them in the freezer. With the Ice Genie, the cylinder fits on any shelf very easy. Another difference is that this product has multi-uses. It can be used outside of the freezer as a drink chiller to keep drinks like wine cold when serving.

Save Money

The user can save money by purchasing this product instead of purchasing ice cubes at the store. Making ice is fast and simple to do at home. The Ice Genie makes 120 cubes of ice which is the amount of 10 traditional ice cube trays. No more bulky ice cube trays taking up the freezer when a lot of ice cubes are needed. This product can also save the user money because of its dual uses. It is both an ice maker and a tool which can chill drinks and wine at the same time. There is no need to fumble with ice packs in order to chill drinks outside any longer with the Ice Genie. Currently, the company has a promotional value to save the consumer money. If the consumer purchases two products they are eligible for a savings of nearly the price of one.

Save Time

The Ice Genie is a time saver when it comes to presenting cold drinks. There is no need to waste time and put ice cubes into a bowl in order to keep drinks cold. The drinks can be inserted directly into the Ice Genie straight out of the freezer. This also can save time for cleaning up because there isn't a bowl of leaking water to clean up afterward the drinks are gone.

Critical Advice

This product is made and shipped from China. Some users have found that the shipping times vary and could possibly take approximately a month to receive the product. The user should be aware that shipping times to and from different countries may take longer than expected. If there are any issues with this, the user can contact the company and their information is located on their main website.

Piece of Junk!

I saw the commercial for the Ice Genie, and as I do use lots of ice thought I would benefit from it! Ha! The ice it makes won't fill an average drinking glass, are extremely difficult to remove, the Ice balls are minuscule! Save your money.

JUNK or KNOCK-OFF!

I love small ice so my husband ordered this for my birthday. I was excited when I opened it. 1-No tongs. Thought, Eh, no problem. First go round ice froze perfectly BUT tasted like the plastic smelled even though I had washed it. 2-Went to refill and the center kept floating up and all the water went under the holding cup. 3- they do not freeze in perfect little circles. You get “junk” ice pieces from the little connecting tubes, the whole bottom creates one big piece and very sharp thin shards are created from the flat square sections between the bubbles. My husband is looking to return it. I have seen reviews from people who bought directly from the Original Ice Genie and wondering if he ordered from a knock off web site. Possibly NOT the “Original Ice Genie?”.

Not Worth the Money or Time

Bought two, did not receive the tongs. One of them has a hole in the bottom so water drips out so it is basically useless item. I could probably seal it with something but probably not worth the time as on the other one, the inner liner which is almost impossible to get out when frozen, floats when you put the water in it; the lid does not do much of anything to keep it down unless maybe if you taped it down. Waste of time and money.

Don’t Waste Your $$

I regret buying this, it’s so small, the ice cubes are like a grape size, to fill it up takes years and the silicone tray won’t stay inside. Junk Junk Junk.

Not Even Close to What is Pictured

First, item is so small the only way a bottle fits in it is if it is a child's bottle. The liner doesn't easily come out. Period. I still haven't been able to get 3 of the 4 I purchased out. The ice cubes are like pea sized. I have taken pics of them. The only way I could get it to look like the advertised pics is to have my 3 year old hold it. Dont waste your money or excitement.

Don't Buy Ice Genie

This product is not at all what is advertised. I ordered 4 of them and they were delivered yesterday. I filled one of them with water, but when the water froze, I could not get the inner liner out to remove the ice cubes. Even dry, and room temperature, the liner is still firmly set into the silicone. Do not waste your time and money on this stupid device.
