However, after receiving them and trying them, the super flexibility is actually a detriment in this case. Yes, the ice doesn't stick to the trays, but it's so flexible that it makes removing the ice difficult. You have to bend it around each individual cube in order to pry it out. Perhaps if the ice was left out for awhile and partially melted, it would slip out of its own volition.
I went to Bed & Bath and found a harder plastic version of this and it works much better. You can twist the hard plastic a little and bang it on a counter top and all the ice pops out. A few break, but it doesn't matter. It's much more convenient.
My intended use is to freeze breast milk in them and then place them in a ziplock bag for long term storage. This will eliminate the need for expensive bags and the square design will allow them to take up less space in my freezer and I can place them in a bottle pretty easily. I see the problem with trying to place several in the same bottle... still should be better and less expensive than the alternative.
I will likely purchase at least one more set so I can have a good production line going since the cubes are approximately 3/4"x3/4"x4" and each is probably about 1 oz. It took approximately 1 hour for the cubes to freeze in my freezer.
Pro: once I manage to make some ice sticks they come out very easily and fit into narrow mouth bottles.
Otherwise, product is good, just a smidge flimsier than I'd prefer but not too bad.
I just stick em in the freezer empty, and use a measuring cup to fill with water.
They're going back. They have two glaring issues:
1) They are not thick enough. They could be made slightly thicker (to the point where water won't cause them to buckle and spill water everywhere unless you half fill it) or have some sort of tray to go underneath. This comes with neither.
2) After washing multiple times, a bad taste persisted. I washed other ice cube trays (traditional) and they made ice without taste fine. To confirm I wasn't nuts, I had three friends try the ice and all three noticed the bad taste.
I'd tolerate the first, but the second is unacceptable to me. As such, I'm returning them. I will probably end up ordering the official ice tray directly from Hydro Flask instead.
Overall, a good product for the price, please consider that these trays produce squared ice, so you will need a bottle with a big mouth for them to fit properly. I use them with a Sigg aluminum bottle and it fits fine.
