Anyway. You will not have this problem with the ice cube trays. The cubes DO NOT STICK INISDE. They slide out immediately, it's magical. It shouldn't be magical, it's 2016, you would think ice cube tray innovation ended in the early 70's. Not so.
They stack! You can put each tray on top of each other without the bottom of one dipping into the top of the other! It seems so obvious that this should be the case! No more sliding pieces of cardboard between your ice cube trays, these just work. They. Just. Work. Buy them right now.
After using a few store bought models made of silicone or some type of flimsy rubber and having trouble with the ice cubes coming out easily. I remembered using these types of plastic trays when I was a kid back in my parent's home many years ago. I looked around a bit to see if something similar existed and sure enough, Amazon had them. I ordered them without hesitation, hoping that they worked as smoothly and easily as I had remembered.
I filled them up with filtered water and stacked them in the freezer. You can stack these trays very easily as they are designed for that which is nice. When it came time to get the cubes out of the tray, it was a simple twist with barely any force and then dump into the plastic bin that I also ordered. This was as easy as I remembered it, and far easier than many of the newer ice cube trays that I bought at the local retail store where I sometimes had to pry the cubes out. I was dumbfounded that the easiest ice cube method was the old school version. I'm not sure how they've managed to regress so much in ice cube technology over the years to be honest. Something that simple shouldn't be hard I would figure.
Bottom line, if you don't have an ice cube maker in your fridge, get these trays and save yourself frustration and mess over the other ones. These worked 40 years ago and they still work flawlessly today. They're old school, but sometimes that's just better.
In use, I noticed how the hydrophobic material of which they are made makes the cubes release with a no-strain flick of the wrist on each end of the tray. As long as they are not filled with water above the level of the overflow channels, the interlock of the stacking feet of one tray on the dividing ridges of the tray below it maintains an air space that ensures that the cubes in the lower tray will not freeze to the underside of the upper tray. Even if a lower tray is overfilled to the point where its cubes will freeze in contact with the underside of the tray above it in the stack, the slickness of the material used in making these trays ensures that the trays will separate easily when the time comes to dump the frozen cubes out into a serving bin.
In sum, I am totally satisfied with this purchase.
