I received an ice cube tray from NoPlastic.ca to facilitate with this review.
A few months ago, I got sick and tired of our old plastic ice cube trays. No only did they keep breaking apart every time that we tried to get the ice out of them, but we have always found that these trays would leave a funny flavor to our ice. I have been hearing so much bad things about plastic recently, and started to wonder if these harmful chemicals were leaching into the ice that I have been serving to my family?
Do any of you remember the metal ice cube trays that came with refrigerators? I do. I have been searching for them for years. With the advent of having to get new ice cube trays, my mind turned once again to find one of these good old fashioned ones. My online search led me to NoPlastic.ca.
At No Plastic, I found an array of all sorts of different items made from stainless steel, wood, bamboo, and ceramic. When I clicked on the link to go to their kitchen items, there is was, a stainless steel ice cube tray, just I as remember how they were when I was so very young. I truly was in awe over it. I really believed that I would never find one because all I ever saw were plastic. What a happy joy it was for me when No Plastic agreed to let me review one for you.

Now that I have been using it for a few weeks, I am completely a fan of this Stainless Steel Ice Cube Tray! This stainless steel ice cube tray comes in two parts - just like the ones from yesterdays - complete with the lever to loosen the ice. Don't let that frazzle you, because they are so very easy to use. Just keep the lever down, fill the tray about 3/4 with water.
Because it is made of stainless steel, the metal freezes the ice so quickly. Here is the ice cube tray all frosty with ice completely frozen ready to be taken out of the freezer.
Since this is a bit different from those plastic trays, you cannot twist it to get the ice out. Take the tray over to the sink, turn it upside down a bit, and give it a splash of warm water from the tap. This will loosen the ice from the bottom tray.
Now just pull up on the handle to release the ice from the separator. As when I was young, I like to be sure to pop out all of the ice into the tray before I place the ice in a bowl.
The ice are all loosened and ready to be stored in my BPA free bowl back in the freezer.
The ice from this stainless steel tray has absolutely no funny flavors at all! I know that these ice cubes are just as pure as the pure water from their source - our deep 600 ft. well!
We all love the flavor of our drinks now, from just plain water to sodas. Never a funky flavor. These ice cube trays, since they are made entirely out of 304 (18/8) stainless steel, is built to last. The price for one of these trays is $28.99 for both the US and Canada. Because of their construction, they do not stack on top of one another. NoPlastic.ca does sell a convenient stacker for only $9.99.
