Wonderful, but beware the fill line!,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Fusionbrands Silicone Ice Orb Vertical Ice Cube Tray (Kitchen)
This is an excellent product. I was a little wary after reading the negative reviews but I really needed a compact Ice Cube solution so I decided to risk it. Worked perfectly! Here's the deal. The WRITTEN directions (ignore the graphical ones)on the box mention the "fill line." It should be called the "fill dash" as it actually is a dash between JUST TWO of the bottom row of "orbs." Find this dash! It has a small arrow pointing down to it and it says fill line. This "line" guarantees that you don't overfill. If you overfill, then I could definitely see how it could freeze the seal at the top. It would probably be the equivalent of encasing a traditional ice tray in ice after stacking.
Once the cubes are frozen, carefully work the top almost like you open a jar, working the silicon top ring away from the jar (just be sure to be gentle- the orb is silicon, the inner jar is frozen plastic). It's definitely a different type of product that wasn't completely intuitive, but the written directions will get you some great results. Love this thing!
