Others are having issues with white stuff in their water.... I only use filtered water (PUR which is a 2 stage filter) for my coffee and ice. I haven't seen a problem, nor have I noticed a bad taste or an odor. The only thing I have noticed is that it's a bit difficult to remove the cubes from the tray. I twist the tray, then push from the bottom, and roll back the sides of the tray around the cube. I just ordered two more trays. I also have the Tovolo large spheres. These trays are a lot less hassle than the spheres, and the cubes fit into many more containers, glasses, etc. These are much easier to use overall.
These trays are BPA free, FYI.
**** Update **** I find that I'm only using these cubes... for everything. I also use them at night in double walled plastic tumblers, and my drink is still reasonably cool hours later. I'm tossing all my other ice cube trays. ****
**** Update **** I noticed that one of my trays developed an odor after a while (months of use). I filled it the tray with a vinegar and water (well diluted) solution, let it soak for 5 minutes, rinsed, let it dry, and the odor was gone. The packaging says to wash with vinegar and water periodically, and I can see why. Still my favorite ice cube trays. Also, I sometimes half fill a few of the spaces to allow for a smaller cube when I want it. Works great.
Durable, and easy to release ice cubes.
White residue after some use:
It is minerals from the water. I think they tend to precipitate between ice and the tray surface. Simple wash of ice resolves this issue.
Silicone absorb ALL ODOR from the freezer and release it into ice cubes. Washing ice does not work on odor.
After a year of use, Ice smells too bad so I stopped using it.
I tried a lot of methods to eliminate the odor, but no success so far.
Good product, but after some use (in my case less than a year) odor will be an issue.
I believe all silicone trays have same issue.
If you have any type of hand problems or don't have strong! hands make sure you buy these trays and not the ones i listed above. The ice is much easier to remove with these trays vs the trays above. Night and day difference. Both trays work great and have lasted more than 5 years with zero problems. These trays areso much easier to remove the ice from.
As soon as I wrote the edit, the other tray listed above ripped.
I typically fill the tray immediately after I've used the last cube and put it back in the freezer. Periodically, the cubes will become stuck in the tray and difficult to remove. That's when I know that the tray is due for a good clean with soap and a bottle brush. Afterward, good as new.
Oh, thought of another drawback: the cubes are too large to fit into some drink bottles that have a narrow neck. Still worth it.
Tip: don't fill the trays to the very edge; leave about a 1/8-inch margin at the top. Overfilling can make the cubes harder to remove.
