    Ice Trays

    I'm looking for new ice trays. I like big cubed ice, but the silicone trays make your drink taste horrible. Other than the Makers Mark Ice Ball Maker, does anybody know of any quality ice trays that make big ice?

    All I can find are el-cheapo plastic ones you can buy at any grocery store?

    Ice is easy to carve if at right temp. So freeze a big ziploc bag or gallon container, then carve your own.

    Get some Tupperware Popsicle makers and only fill them part way. You can have big chunks of ice however big you want them

    That's a good idea, but I really think I can taste the plastic. Especially in a glass of water.

    I'm leaning towards the Onyx Stainless Steel ice trays: http://www.healthegoods.com/stainles...ray-onyx.html#

    Mini-muffin pans would probably work, too.

    That's a great Idea.

    My automatic ice maker hasn't been keeping up and I broke out the ice trays a few days before this thread apeared.

    I ended up buying some vintage Frigidaire Quickube Ice Trays in perfect condition off of eBay. I'll let you guys know how it goes.
