Better than having no big cubes,
This review is from: Tovolo King Cube Ice Trays (Kitchen)
We're cocktail nerds and have worked with the 4 cube size of this Tovolo king cube trays. As already noted, it's a bit of a fight getting the cubes out, but they are nice big cubes.
Our upgrade from this was to the big Beaba "cubes" which are actually cylinder sections with rounded bottoms. That makes them pop out a lot easier and the tray is lidded. Beaba thinks their tray is for freezing baby food, but we mixies know better.
We do recommend the smaller cubed Tovolo tray which freezes up fast and the cubes pop right out. In general, a brand we've liked; it'd be great to see them come up with a lidded tray with rounded "cubes" for easier removal.

Is the Beaba product you mention the "Beaba Brezza food storage system"? I need a gift ASAP for a cocktail nerd. On Amazon, it looks like they have three versions of the Brezza; Octo, Quatrol, and Duo. Which product do suggest for the best ice cubes? Thanks!

Nothing to do with the Brezza; you just want their freezer tray: http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=pd_lpo_k2_dp_sr_sq_top?ie=UTF8&keywords=beaba%20freezer%20tray&index=blended&pf_rd_p=486539851&pf_rd_s=lpo-top-stripe-1&pf_rd_t=201&pf_rd_i=B0027UYT4O&pf_rd_m=ATVPDKIKX0DER&pf_rd_r=0WM2CMGXD28S99BCFCKB
Should be about a 2oz cube, if I recall correctly.

There are silicone muffin pans on amazon, they make even bigger cubes than these. Happy drinking!

I just broke my fourth plastic tray in six months. All were new from Bed-Bath. Your review changed my life.

Thank you for the reference to Beaba "cubes" - seems to be just what I've been looking for, for many years. Williams Sonoma carries it too; I'm hoping to pick one up this weekend.

Note that even the Beaba "cubes" can be stubborn to get out. I recommend starting your cocktail making process with setting them out on the counter even before you begin to gather spirits, mixing glass, etc. Just a few minutes of warming up will help with popping them out.

Took your advice about a week ago and am now reaping the rewards, my flatmates love them as well. Just a superb tip, its really nice to have the lid for instance. And they pop out so easily.
In the summer i see them being made to use frozen boozy/fruity cubes to put in our summer punch! I really cant thank you enough!
