King Cube Ice Cube Tray
Is there such thing as the Cadillac of ice-trays? I’m here to tell you yes, and it can be found at The Brooklyn Kitchen. The King Cube Ice Cube Tray, made out of food-grade silicone, is specially designed to create ice cubes that take longer to melt. Your drink gets cold, but isn’t all watery. The ice cubes easily pop out of the tray — unlike with most ice cube trays. That cold drink just got a little more refreshing.
