Bad smell & taste
on June 13, 2013
This review is the same as the one for the blue Tovolo ice trays - they have exactly the same problem: silicone absorbs smells you didn't know existed in your freezer and never ever lets them go.
We were super-excited about these and liked them for several months. It was so easy to get ice cubes out! Then we started noticing that if we used the ice for water, the water tasted so gross we were embarrassed to serve it to guests. The taste wasn't as bad for alcoholic drinks, but if you drank too slowly and let the ice melt, your last sip would undo all the goodness of the previous ones. The ice trays had the same icky smell when they were empty, even after washing and drying them. We did a lot of research on how to get the smell out of silicone (vinegar, baking soda, etc) but nothing worked. Finally we moved them into our soap-making kit, where I'm still worried they'll scent the soap. There was just no way to continue to use them for ice.
