Tovolo Perfect Cube Trays

Tovolo Ice Cubes in Glass
My freezer space is S-M-A-L-L and I have NO ice maker! And I love Toddy Brewed iced coffee in the morning while reading my email. So ice is very important. Recently I tested the Tovolo Perfect Cube Trays and was pleasantly surprised by the small amount of freezer real estate that they use and how many cubes they create! It's a little tricky to get the cubes out, but the size is perfect and they last longer than my old smaller sized ice cubes.

Tovolo Perfect Cubed Meyer Lemon Juice
Fresh Squeezed Meyer Lemon Juice in Perfect Squared Ice Cubes:
a little over 2 tablespoons each

The Perfect Cube
Each Tovolo Perfect Cube tray creates 15 perfectly square, 1-ounce ice cubes that make refreshing addition for any cold beverage. The also are perfect for freezing herbs, Meyer lemon juice, lime juice, etc.

Filling the Perfect Cubes
I like to use filtered alkaline water from my H2Go. But pouring from the filter pitcher is too messy. The solution I used is a pliable silicone measuring cup that allows me to get right up to each opening in the tray. I place the tray onto a cutting board that fits my freezer's bottom self so I can carry all four trays stacked together to the freezer after filling. Each tray measures 7 by 4-1/2 by 1-1/2 inches.

NOTE: This morning I filled all four trays with alkaline water, stacked them on top of each other and hand carried them to the freezer without the cutting board base and I had no spills. The silicone cubes "magically" contained the water and with four stacked it gave more stability!

Removal of the Perfect Cubes
Pressing from the bottom with my thumb releases each ice cube. You won't be able to twist the cubes out like traditional ice cube trays. Pressure from the bottom of each cube is required. I put on my favorite kitchen gloves to keep my fingers from freezing!

How to Clean the Tovolo Perfect Cube Trays
I noticed that the silicone seems to collect a cloudy residue on the insides, so I simply use a dish detergent and brush to whisk it off and refill. Tovolo recommends a diluted solution of vinegar and water, but I have not used it as the soap and water works perfectly.

Recommendation

If you're in a huge hurry, the Tovolo Ice Cube Trays may not be for you. But I LOVE them! I love the size, the shape and the real estate space they use while sitting in my freezer.

BUY Tovolo Perfect Cube Ice Tray, Set of 2, Dark Blue.
