I haven't tried any other baby food storage trays, so I have nothing to compare these to. I question whether they'll hold up well over the long term and I hope that they will. I do like their form factor and it is great to have something I know won't leach chemicals or something in my baby's food.Read more ›
I've used this AND regular ice cube trays. When you have crying in the background the last thing you really want is to be trying to get frozen baby food from an ice cube tray (the food wouldn't budge out of the regular ice cube tray at all; I nearly threw it out the window in frustration). Luckily for me these silicone cube trays are extremely flexible and the food comes right out.
The fact that you can stack them when full, compared to the ice cube trays, is also helpful when you have very little space in your freezer. No mess under the tray = no mess in your freezer either.
I had originally purchased one; but since I'm making quite a bit of food, I've since placed an order for three more.
Volume wise it holds about the same volume of a stage 1 food jar.
NOTE: the lid WILL NOT make a perfect seal, but it protects the food from any spills you might have and helps you stack them. While some people might be turned off by that, I'm okay with that since I'm making mostly purees that will be used within two weeks. I don't think the product would be as great if the seal would be perfect as the lid would very likely be difficult to get out.
Edit: I just measured, each of the 9 cubes will hold 2 liquid ounces of food.
1) The cubes of food don't pop out. I have to run warm water and wedge a butter knife in the cracks to get a cube out. The water then starts to defrost the other cubes, which I then return to the freezer.
2) The lid is not air tight--doesn't even secure tightly.
3) If your baby (or in my case, babies), go through more than 9 servings of food in 2-3 days, it makes more sense to buy the little twist and seal individual containers that are not much larger and keep in the fridge. (I found a 4 pack at Walmart for $2 and some change). Those give you more storage options if you have a tighly packed freezer/fridge like me--instead of having to make room for a large, square silicone mold.
But, it is cute. And the packaging is nice (comes with a little booklet of 5 or 6 baby recipies)
It's pretty easy to clean and the ice is also more easily retrieved out of than a different cube tray we had and got frustrated with. If you get a stubborn one, just grab a butter knife and loosen up the four side, then push from the bottom.
