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.
