Ice cube tray

My fridge doesn't make ice cubes anymore.

Rather than buying a new fridge or fixing it, I'm looking to buy a ice cube tray.(I think there's some rule that when it costs X% of the price of new item to fix something, you should buy it instead).

So, what's a good ice cube tray to buy? Any features I should insist on?

In the immortal words of Vanilla Ice, ice is back with a brand new invention- there's all these new types of ice cube trays that have things like silicone, covers, unique shapes, etc..

Are they really a upgrade over those old traditional 99 cents ice cube trays? I'm seeing ice cube trays ranging in price from five dollars for Oxo's to fifteen dollars for silicone ice cube trays to sixty dollar gucci ice cube trays.

I don't mind paying more if there's an improvement in performance, but the but the feedback on Amazon for the Oxo ice cube tray were really brutal- they're mostly negative and the only positive reviews were about using them for baby food.
