Four days ago, "Charles and the team" wrote to me asking for a review. I replied with a dissatisfied review, and awaited a reply. After all, I could be doing something wrong with this simple device. They did not reply until now, with another robo-request for a review. So here it is:
Hi Charles and team,
I plan to write a review on Amazon, but I will wait to hear from you because my experience has not been as positive as I had hoped. Maybe you will have some tips to make it better.
I really like the little ice cubes. It's much neater and quicker than smashing a bigger one to bits.
I have two pairs of ice cube trays for little cubes, a pair of rigid white plastic trays and a pair of your flexible blue trays.
The attached photo shows the results of emptying each of the four trays after 10 seconds each. You can see that the rigid white trays are both virtually empty, and your blue ones are not.
The white trays are a little harder to flex, but once I do, the ice pops out pretty easily; a couple of sharp raps against my hand finishes the job. In 15 seconds, a bowl of ice cubes is back in the freezer, ready for action.
The blue trays are easier to flex, but that does not make the ice come out. I have to press from the back while twisting the tray over the bowl, taking much longer. I usually have to pry many of them out with my fingertips while flexing the tray. It's 30-45 seconds or more before the bowl goes back to the freezer. In that time, the ice is melting, so when it goes into the freezer, the cubes freeze together into a mass that must be broken apart.
Maybe I'm doing something wrong? If you have any tips, I am eager to hear them. I will hold off writing an unhappy review on Amazon for a few days, hoping for useful new information.

Not as good as the rigid white plastic trays, unresponsive company2017年4月28日 - 已在美国亚马逊上发表
Worth it? Yes and No!2017年11月13日 - 已在美国亚马逊上发表
I bought this ice cube tray because I am a dedicated “ice eater.” It’s cubes fit easily in the mouth, where they can melt or be crushed. I read the reviews about the difficulty of getting cubes out of the tray. It’s true. They are hard to get out. The online word was “wait.” I gave my 2 trays several minutes of basking in the light on my clean counter. Then, with the hopefulness of a kid on Christmas morning, I picked up one tray and quickly turned it over, holding it close to the counter, waiting for the cubes to fall ... nothing happened except for a few drops of water on my hands. I twisted the trays to the right, to the left, back and forth ... nothing. The ice held fast to the tray. I lowered the tray to the counter-top, bent it back on itself at the third row and EUREKA!, a few cubes of ice were on my wet counter top. After several minutes I had most of the cubes on the counter. I quickly transferred them to my glass, putting a few of the irresistible ice bites in my mouth, I noticed the second tray.... My fingertips were numb, I repeated my efforts. In the end, most cubes were in my glass. They do their job, cooling very fast. They also made a mess of my counter-top. Containing the cubes in a large plastic bag would reduce the melting mess. I think I will get an ice crusher.

Annoying to add water2019年8月21日 - 已在美国亚马逊上发表
A smart ice tray has a system where the water spreads evenly and remains in the ice tray. This ice tray, adding the water is insanely frustrating. If you notice on the demonstration video, she pours it in a circle in the middle of the tray, and then they zoom out. I was trying to poor water in, and it kept overflowing over the sides and wetting the table and floor. Then I am moving the tray around in weird motions trying to get this water to flow into all the cells. I will reserve my final judgement on if I return this thing until I try to remove the ice, and try it out, but I think if I keep this thing I will go insane. I don't want to spend an inordinate amount of time on something as mundane as ice, and obviously the creator of the product did not want to spend any time on designing either.
Cool, but Weird Taste2019年1月31日 - 已在美国亚马逊上发表

These are cool and easy to use, at least the cubes are. The spheres are more trouble than they are worth, in my opinion. But the biggest downside is the weird taste they give the ice cubes. It isn't very noticeable in alcohol, but in water it makes it almost undrinkable. Tried washing them and it did not help.
