It doesn't get more basic than an ice cube tray. The most ice cube trays have advanced in their lifetime is going from plastic casing to a more durable silicone casing. So, imagine our surprise when we stumbled upon these quite igneous ice cube trays from iSi.
iSi calls them ORKA ice cube trays
and like most newer ice cube trays, these guys are made out of silicone. So what the hell is the big deal? The ORKA ice cube trays have a unique flexible pad at the bottom that releases the ice cube from its oval-shaped prison without much stress. Thanks to this unique system, you can individually pop the ice cubes individually - no more wrestling with the ice cube tray to pop one ice cube off.
The ORKA ice cube trays
also have a lid to prevent water from spilling everywhere and best of all, these guys can be easily stacked on top of one another thanks to the grooves on top of the lids.
Each tray retails for $9.99,
and like most things now-a-days, come in different colors.
