Ice Gadgets That will Blow your Mind

what’s up everybody welcome back to
Malibu to ever safety is number one
priority and today I’m going to put to
the test ten ice making gadgets some of
them make those big ice balls and
they’re supposed to be clear ice so
let’s put them to the test
I have a whole bunch of different kinds
see which ones do the best first one I
got your kills boom
so this gadget comes out like that and
it’s supposed to make two clear ice
balls really big ones and non clear ice
will stay in there but the point of this
gadget is to make clear ice so we’re
going to fill it up with water and stick
it in the freezer this is pretty much
what I’m gonna do to all of them see how
they work and we’ll see which one will
make the clearest ice simply add water
right into here boom gonna go in here
next one
makes cubes hopefully also makes clear
ice cubes very similar system except
it’s going to look like that the top one
I’m pretty sure is supposed to stay
clear the bottom one’s supposed to be
not clear tubes let’s find out if it
actually work just fill it up with water
and my goal is to get ice as clear as
they advertise all the way to the top
now we stick it into the refrigerator
okay this one looks like a bunch of
balls you open it like that
and if set will be easy to separate them
the only question is will they work
let’s find out definitely not the
easiest way to put them back together
but this gadget is annoying it’s how to
close it and how to fill it up all the
way and it’s kind of leaking all the
time so weird okay it’s full now this
one’s a little bit easier
I’m just gonna do two for the next
gadget for the next ice gadget this is
IC Jeannie I think they call them this
is as seen on tv item
okay let’s fill it up with water all the
way to the top and this one is it full I
think it’s full now I’m going to cover
it up looks like it’s not leaking all
right it’s leaking a little bit on the
bottom
I don’t it’s going to work it’s just
gonna freeze up on the bottom I already
can tell okay let’s do this one more
time okay it’s to the top this time I
stuck it in a little bit harder so does
not look like leaking actually it is
leaking and it’s not supposed oh oh wow
there’s a second one what’s that to face
it just to see what’s gonna happen for
the next two gadgets I got here spill
proof ice cube makers and boom pretty
sure it’s full now I can close it shake
it off let’s see if we spill any in your
water you know what it spills a bit of
water from the top over here not from
the sides but from the top a bit of fail
so let’s fill up this gadget now we’re
going to close it now let’s see if it
spills couple the labs but Wow didn’t
spill any water you see there is water
inside of those tubes it spill and maybe
a couple drops but that’s what it’s from
the size that I got it wet it’s not
spills Wow and it’s also easy to open it
and look at that
all that cubes are full of water that is
awesome and I have here i sticked a this
is supposed to be easy to stick ice into
the water bottle okay let’s see how well
this ice cube makers did this whole
thing can come off
that way it’s easier to pop out
especially when it’s all fours and it’ll
be even how does they go and open this
up oh this is the squares I forgot look
how clear they are this is beautiful let
me put one in the glass and then as soon
as you put a little bit of liquid in Wow
check this out let me take it out look
how clear that is Wow I don’t have a
gadget that makes clear ice in cubes
like that
so definitely going to use it all the
time that is awesome
so this is perfect for square glasses
like that if I fill it up with water
you’re just gonna disappear
it’s barely floating there now but if it
submerged you see you barely concede Wow
let’s leave the second one as good as
soon as you put liquid on it look at
that it’s so clear and also this kind of
ice melts a lot slower beautiful gadget
now let’s see what this one does
same thing I’ll have to pull it out all
the way it’s been enough for 24 hours
Wow look at that you would have a glass
like this and then as soon as you pour
liquid in look at that we just disappear
now oops
we filled it you can’t even see that ice
it just floating on top if you have
different color liquid you see the ball
better there is an amusing water just to
show you how beautiful this ice balls
are what an amazing clear icemaker
everybody should have this gadget you
will impress some friends that’s for
sure let’s see if this guide you give
any better first of all it’s kind of
hard to open it we reserved the frozen
in okay and I honestly do not want to
burn this gadget so we go

  • let it defrost I’m glad to take a more
    than like 15 minutes next said here I
    got here ice bomb makers except it’s all
    for the name together and doesn’t look
    like a ball that’s for sure
    they go hahaha that’s an interesting
    ball definitely not a clear ice this is
    more like ice ovals and look at this
    huge difference clear ice versus this
    all the bubbles inside of them and even
    if I’m going to put it inside of the
    glass and pour water in them you see
    they’re really ugly compared to those
    clear ice cube maker so not as good
    definitely this one was actually a
    really poor mission but it generally
    close all the way then I’m gonna pull
    this things out oh nice they’re clear
    ice beautiful that one actually turned
    out pretty good does have a lot more
    perfections though let’s see if we have
    at least one that is turn out to be
    perfect this one not even full but it’s
    still kind of fun so that when maybe you
    can sit it down and that we can sit but
    again the other one is way way better
    the person perfections go away quickly
    so clear ice cube for sure but not all
    the way Bowl if you look at it actually
    correct as soon as I put water in its
    off has a lot of imperfections
    this one is perfect but it’s not full so
    I’d rather stick with the other gadget
    next gadget this is a sinner TV ice
    genie
    you know what this is complete fail all
    the water actually ended up leaking down
    Berlin making any ice on the side and I
    probably won’t even be able take it out
    yep no rock now but good luck taking
    this thing out this is a good idea but
    the little bit of a fail for the next
    gadget this is I stay that makes this
    ice cube sticks regular ice cubes it’s
    not clear or anything but they are
    perfect for the water bottle check this
    out this giant ice cubes can spit into
    any water bottle this is a skinny
    regular without a bottle you know the
    worst part about this ice cube tray it’s
    easy to purse out here there’s a
    silicone in the back so that whenever
    you push it here it pops up the ice
    super super easy how cool is that and
    for the last two gadgets business was
    non-spill ice Therese and I see some ice
    over here on top instead the whole thing
    is posing together okay no big deal
    indeed come on okay that’s a lot of ice
    it definitely expended a lot more look
    at that and you got that here
    whoa pretty awesome ice cubes then it up
    some of them a little high quality
    halfway clear ice I can’t believe it but
    I’ll tell you what this is was
    surprisingly good because it doesn’t
    stick it just holds it and it was
    non-spill now that it’s frozen look how
    easy it is to take the ice cubes out as
    well just pull it out and even though it
    wasn’t full the way the water actually
    expanded you look super easy to pull
    apart just squish on one side and
    they’re going to pop out so easily I
    love it
    what a great idea because they’re so
    cool you just push it if it doesn’t push
    push on the other side and they will
    come out some stone got push then the
    other ones very very nice quality ice
    cubes for sure
    and this is tule non-spill I stay you
    can get few of them stuck them up you
    got a lot of ice look how much I sneeze
    for ma one I stay not bad out say almost
    forgot let’s start to pull this one out
    it’s been at least 30 minutes whoa they
    go so the bottom ice cubes are going to
    be regular ice cubes and this one right
    here supposed to be a little ear a
    little bit over the pain to take it out
    just make sure you’re going to let them
    defrost for a while
    oh wow look up perfect that is
    that’s perfect square door it makes this
    it makes this amazing square ice cube
    but it has a lot of impurities inside
    that the first one even though it wasn’t
    all the way square it wasn’t as sharp
    square but I’d say the other one a
    little bit better because it has much
    much more purity inside of it
    it doesn’t have any water bubbles this
    one have quite a bit but anyways let me
    know in comments below what do you think
    about this video don’t forget to thumbs
    up subscribe and I’ll see you next time

Ice Trays Buyers’ Guide

How to make ice cubes?

Start by choosing the ice tray that best fits your needs. Then, wash the chosen tray very thoroughly. Your ice cube tray may be new, but it never hurts to wash it before using it. Once you have washed and dried the tray, fill it with water. Pouring the same amount of water into all the compartments will ensure all your ice cubes will freeze in the same amount of time. Tap water can be used, but keep in mind that the minerals in this water can land you with cloudy and weird-tasting ice cubes, so try to use filtered or bottled water. If you want your ice cubes to be crystal clear, then boil the water before freezing it. Place the tray on any flat surface in the freezer, remember that the back of the freezer is always the coldest. Leave the ice inside until it is solid, and then it can be removed from the tray.

How long does it take for ice cubes to freeze?

Generally, it takes around three to four hours for the ice to freeze in a standard freezer. Water will start to freeze once it reaches 32 degrees Fahrenheit (0 degree Celsius), but the amount of time that it will take the water to reach that temperature depends on a few factors. One of those is the surface area of the ice because it freezes from the outside inwards. So an ice tray with air space between each cube will freeze faster than one with dividers. The air temperature of the freezer you are using also matters. Home freezers are usually set at 0 degrees Fahrenheit, which is the optimal temperature. But if you leave your freezer door open or leave room-temperature food inside at the same time the ice is freezing, you will be raising the air temperature in the freezer, slowing down the ice-making process.
