The Covered Ice Cube Tray Walter Drake

When you don't have an icemaker built into your freezer, you have to make your own. It's not a particularly difficult process, but the odds of filling up a tray in your sink, getting it across the kitchen, and then placing in the freezer without splashing aren't so great. Generally, we just put up with it, but there is an alternative: The Covered Ice Cube Tray. The idea is simple, but makes filling up ice cube trays less of a hassle. This ice cube tray simply has a lid that snaps on over the tray, with a hinged opening that lets you fill it with water. You don't have to worry about splashes walking across the kitchen.

The Covered Ice Cube Tray is made from dishwasher-safe plastic. It makes a surprising amount of difference in your ice cubes, such as keeping lingering odors out of your ice. The Covered Ice Cube Tray guarantees that you get clean, fresh-tasting ice for about $6.99.
