About this item
- Make sure this fits by entering your model number.
- It's never been easier to make "bar quality" clear ice at home! Ice-ology removes impurities and bubbles during the freezing process, resulting in crystal clear ice for your beverages
- The innovative iceology system contains two silicone molds that separate in the freezing process to separate the clear ice from impurities below
- This tray makes eight oversized clear ice cubes. Oversized ice is slower melting and keeps drinks colder longer, while causing less dilution
- Food grade. BPA Free silicone molds open completely for easy pop-up ice release
- Simple to use! Just fill tray and silicone base molds with water. Lower cube molds into the water and freeze for 12 hours. Lift molds to remove ice and enjoy!

Dexas ice•ology Silicone Clear Ice Maker for Craft Cocktail Ice
It's never been easier to make bar quality clear ice at home, thanks to ice-ology!
To use, fill the lower tray with tap water, and lower the upper silicone mold into place. During the freezing process (12 hours/overnight), bubbles and impurities filter to the bottom of the tray, leaving crystal clear ice in the ice molds!
How it Works
Each ice-ology tray features a lower and upper silicone mold. To use, fill the lower tray with tap water, and lower the upper silicone mold into place.
Just like in nature, frigid air (in the freezer) meets the surface of warmer water and eventually, an ice crystal forms. Then another and another, freezing from the top down, pushing air bubbles and impurities away.
Ice-ology ice cube system works the same way removing the air and allowing dissolved solids to settle, eliminating any cloudiness in the pure, crystal clear ice.

TLDR: Make sure all components are at least room temperature before filling and freezing
Theory: I see a lot of reviews on these and other clear ice mold pages complaining about cloudy ice. Sure, clean, filtered water helps, and even warm or hot water can't hurt, but none of that matters if the tray, foam insulator, and silicone molds are not ALL at least room temperature, if not warm. If you clear the ice, fill it right back up, and plop it back in the freezer immediately, you're likely to get some cloudiness on the next batch because the cold temperature of the components disrupts the top-down freezing process that pushes contaminants and gases to the bottom. After A LOT of trial and error, this is the only consistent common denominator I've found, even when using warm or hot water. Now, I routinely set the molds, tray, and foam insulator on the counter in front of a window that gets direct sunlight for a few minutes before filling it up, and I get perfect results every time.
It would be a good idea if the manufacturers included this information in their literature, and would probably spare them some unnecessary returns and bad reviews
Before the residue, the tray produced reasonably clear ice cubes and I was pleased with the results.
The value is here, but the longevity, for me, has been poor.
The cubes release well and I put them in a bag so can clear things away as there are a lot of pieces laying around if you don't.
After about four attempts, I think I figure out a process to get it right but it is still messy and waists water and energy. After I empty the trays, I'm left with the ice in the bottom of the inner tray that needs to be removed. The fastest way I found to remove it is to set it in the sink (I have a smaller sink in my bar) and fill the sink and the tray with hot water until the remain ice melts enough to separate. Once empty, I take a 1 cup spouted measuring cup and fill the inner tray sections up to the third line from the top, then slip the silicone forms back into the tray. I had to do this in the order because, when I put the forms back in the tray and filled them with water, I partially got bubbles in the ice or less than square cubes. By having the water in the tray first, I solved the problem but it does make a mess as it is really hard to pour into the inner tray sections to the exact right height. After I clean up the counter and the tray top from the water that was pushed out, I take the measuring cup and a teaspoon and slowly fill each form to the top of the form so I will get the "square". If I overfill, I use the spoon to take out some of the water in the form to get it back down to the right level. I put the tray back in the foam hold and place it i the freezer drawer in a place I have cleared out, permanently for that size piece.
Because of the effort and room consumed in the freezer, I'm not aren't considering the larger version.
Again, the results are nice, square, clear cubes as promised. Just wish it more convenient. It would have rated it higher if that was the case.
