Takes very little effort to remove cubes. Cube size is very uniform, 1.3" squares. Silicone material is also oven-safe and heat resistant.
Unpleasant odors and residues possible upon arrival. Cubes can be hard to remove intact. Each compartment needs to filled individually, not the common "overflow" technique.
Sealable lid holds water and other liquids in place. Resists absorption of other freezer odors. Child friendly.
Cubes can be challenging to remove, tray is not flexible. Cube size smaller than expected. Locking tabs on lid can snap off easily.
Users can refill partially empty trays, not "all or nothing". Tray size is compact, allows for more stacking. Individual cubes shaped for easy removal, no twisting required.
Plastic tray can transfer unpleasant taste. Silicone lid does not form leak-resistant seal, trays are not angle-proof. Lid relies on surface tension to work properly.
Stacking design keeps trays separated. Cube extraction requires little force. Overflow channels for easier filling.
Ice cube size is exceptionally small. Hard plastic, not very flexible. Durability is an issue.
Overall quality and design comparable to higher end models yet lower cost. Rounded cubes easier to extract. Clarity of ice is noticeable.
Stacked trays can freeze together. Some plastic residue can leech into water. Larger tray size, so may not fit in smaller freezers.
