Just Chillin'

This unusual polar bear might just warm your heart as it goes about its chilly business. It spends its days making ice in the arctic region of your home freezer, and it has some fierce, evolutionary advantages over other ice cube trays. The unique, conical "legs" mean the end of stubborn ice sticking to their cube-shaped molds. The container is enclosed, which means no more accidental spills as you put the tray into the freezer, and the ice won't absorb odors from its neighboring foods. When time comes to chill your drink, you can knock the ice loose and pour it into glasses without ever having to touch it. Plus, with it's big nose and little ears, this little guy will put a smile on your face every time you open the freezer. Made in England.

      Takes up a lot of room in the freezer but makes small cubes. Even if you lower the water level the cubes do not always come out. No longer going to use this product.

        Comments about POLAR BEAR ICE TRAY:

        I'm still trying to figure out the magic water amount to use. It does have a fill hole that prevents you from over filling it. But I found that the mouth of the opening is just a shy too small to allow the ice to not get tangled up in the bottle neck. Maybe a little wider opening would allow the ice to fall out effortlessly, but I am experimenting with less water, so my cubes are smaller. Until then, I'll shake it James Bond style.

        Fun, but not ideal

          Comments about POLAR BEAR ICE TRAY:

          I think the design is very cute, and I love how easy to break out the ice, and no more dropping at least one on the floor trying to get them out of trays!

          The cons, though, are: (1) they take up a lot of space for the amount of ice you get; (2) You have to really obey the fill line, even go under it, or else the cubes are too big to fit through the opening to come out. No way to get them out if you overfill even by a little. ...btw, I didn't think I was overfilling, yet some were getting stuck. The cubes are small. But, they freeze quickly that way. ...I think they could widen the opening a bit.

          Finally, at first I thought they wouldn't stack on each other because it slid off when I tried and I was quite disappointed. However, I tried again and they do stack, you just have to get it set on right. No problems now.

          Despite the cons, I gave them 4 stars because I do find them easy once you get the knack and they are quite cute!

                  Cute but over priced. Functions so-so. If you make really small cubes, they pop out nicely but over fill it and - ugh - nothing comes out because the neck is blocked.

                      I drink a lot of ice tea and bought this to make tea ice cubes. Too much liquid and the cubes don't come out the nose; too little and the cubes don't come free of the feet. The instructions are clear that only the correct amount of liquid will work but they need to put that in ounces. It's a shame but this cute bear totally fails its purpose.

                            It's so much fun to bang this bear to get the ice cubes. The plastic is very high quality and I use it more than the regular ice cube trays. The only downside is the limited number of cubes you can make at a time, but that's not a factor for me.
