Ice cube guidance. Yup. Really.

RedTop | Apr 19, 2013 08:57 AM

I'm solidly old school. Our refrigerator does not have an ice cube maker. We fill eight ice cube trays with water and wait for the freezing. The eight trays are all plastic, with three different "weights" and "designs".

I'd like guidance on how to remove the cubes from the trays without shattering the cubes. Seems a simple task, but far more often than not; when I twist on the trays to loosen the cubes, I get shards of ice and few whole cubes.

Could our freezer temp be set to low?
