Very nice ice trays.. Have one.. You can slide them out by pressing the ice cubes from one side and they slide out..

I have one. They work well, but after several years of tweaking the corners of the tray to loosen the ice cubes, the lid has started to crack. It's not cracked badly and is still perfectly functional, but I guess it's just wear and tear.

Yes if you overfill the tray and/or don't keep it level.

The one OP posted is designed not to spill, but it's also not a silicone tray it's a rigid plastic tray. It's identical to what you would get any dollar store or Walmart or whatever, plus a lid.

The reviews on Amazon seem mixed as to whether or not the lid is effective. I assume a lid wouldn't work at all on a silicone tray since they are more flexible.

I found this at homesense on clearance for $9 and was initially hesitant to spend close to $10 on an ice cube tray. But it is is great. No issues with water spilling when you're trying to manoever the tray into the freezer. I really like the silicon cover.

I find the lid effective for loosening the cubes so that they don't go flying. Also, when I dump the whole tray into my blender to make a smoothie, I hold the lid against the tray to control the cubes so that they all make it into the jug. I suppose something like a plate or a cutting board would also serve the same purpose.

If you read the article...

"Our previous pick was OXO’s Good Grips No Spill Ice Cube Tray. We liked the innovative silicone lid which allows you to fill the tray from the tap, pour off the excess, and stick the lid on using the surface tension of the water. This design means you can stack the tray anywhere in the freezer, even at an angle, without spilling the contents. However, after long term testing we found that the silicone lid imparted the flavor of freezer burn to the cubes. Also, the moat around the outside of the tray created useless and messy shards of ice that would fall out and turn into puddles of meltwater."

Thanks for the info. I am currently using the one with plastic on the outside and silicone bottom for each cube. I find it much easier to remove the ice cube. The only downside is it doesn't have the lid

Why not take the frozen cubes out of the tray and put in in a zip-lock baggie?

Sorry, but I think this isn't a deal, it's a gimmick. I'll stick to my Dollar Tree trays, thank you.

What are the odds i was actually looking at ice cube trays last night

Oxo usually has amazing products but this doesn’t seem that good, lots of reviews say its hard to get the ice out.

I bought something similar to this three years ago:

https://www.amazon.ca/VicTsing-Easy-Rel ... 714&sr=8-6

Super easy to get the ice cubes out but it finally cracked after like 3 years of use which i think is pretty good.

I’m debating whether to buy it again or buy something like this

https://www.amazon.ca/Fxexblin-Silicone ... 714&sr=8-8

Pros are you get more ice cubes and it seems like it’s more durable.

Cons are it takes up more space i guess

I think I’m just going to buy my original ice cube tray set again, they worked great and if i have to spend $20 every 3 years then so be it, i dont want to waste time letting my ice cube tray thaw out before getting ice. if you have a larger freezer go with the honeycomb trays if you dont mind smaller individual cubes.

I don't understand what the suggested benefit is here.
