LOL that's hilarious!

I tried the recipe.  It worked perfectly, except they melt in a drink. Three stars.

Make sure your freezer is plugged in.

LOL! These are better than Monster Cable reviews!

Ha awesome.

I'd like if someone wrote a recipe for refilling the goddamn Brita jug too because apparently it's beyond people.

I'm going to guess this recipe was originally left on the freezer door as a note to someone's husband.

I think we're missing the author's own snark.

You know why your ice cubes are boring? Cuz you make 'em out of water, you bimbo! Throw some fruit juice in there, and put THAT in your milk!

Too bad there's not any suggestions for substitute ingredients for those of us with H2O intolerance.

I'll bet it's nothing compared to my Dihydrogen Monoxide issues.

Intolerance?! Dihydrogen Monoxide is toxic in too great a quantity! It can kill anyone, not just those who are allergic to it!

Haven't read all of the comments so this may have been covered already, but you get better cubes if you boil the water first to de-gas it. Don't use it straight out of the tap. Also, after the outer 1/16 inch or so has frozen, take the tray out of the freezer and break up the ice. This reduces the pressure buildup you would otherwise get when the liquid center freezes and expands (assuming that you're just using standard kitchen equipment instead of putting the tray on a coldplate for bottom-up freezing).

I'm assuming we all know you need to use a tray with a tightly-fitting plastic cover if you plan to store the cubes for any significant length of time, right?

I'd like to try this recipe, but I'm a little nervous.

They don't mention how long before you need to flip the cubes over and freeze them on the other side. Otherwise, I think you'd get all frozen on one side and the other side would still be wet. Still it seems that, for some people, they just know how to cook, and don't need to know this stuff.

Maybe if they put a range, like for large cubes freeze them for 2 hours on one side and then flip them over and freeze them for another hour or so.

Also, after the cubes are done, where do you store them? The refrigerator? Can they be safely be stored in a pantry, (maybe I could can them and they'd keep through the summer).

All in all, a helpful site, but I don't think I'm ready for this kind of cooking skill-set just yet.

P.S. In case you're wondering, try eating your Pop Tarts sushi-style, (raw). It really isn't bad, and I think if you keep an open mind you'll get used to it.

Pure gold there.

equally as helpful

This is the second greenlight today to include this braindead phrasing. Is somebody trolling the grammar nazis, or do we just have a more illiterate crop of submitters than usual?

Well, there's your problem. It's cooling not heating. Try making them in the freezer. Not on the stove. Sheesh.

Yeah, coffee on keyboard, owe me a new one.  That and co-workers wondering what the hell my problem is.

Gee, seems like a pretty simple recipe.

So I wonder why my refrigerator's ice-maker cost me 220$ to fix?

I have this very smart machine in my freezer that is programmed to make cubed ice. I'm looking to see if I can add programming for it to make Coq au Vin. It can't be much more difficult.
 
2012-09-14 01:42:17 PM
I would be proud to serve that to friends or take to the office potluck. Do they travel well?

I rather enjoyed the review asking for a crock pot recipe. That shiat was funny.

They can be served at room temperature. But it's better if you can deheat them before serving.

That's totally getting posted every time one of my whack-job Facebook friends posts end-of-the world articles about fluoride and GMO food.

Is there homeopathic version? Those look too strong for my taste.
 
2012-09-14 03:11:38 PM
The comments on this are a perfect parody of typical recipe comments -- especially the ones by people who change everything important about a recipe, and then complain it didn't work well.

"I made a few adjustments...... used a pot instead of trays. boiled instead of freezing. Added salt, potatoes, carrots and beef to the water. It turned out more like soup instead of ice cubes. Next time I will make a few more adjustments to try and get this recipe to work for me."

May I present you a very helpful video recipe here. Google says it's from April 2008, YOU are welcome.

Don't forget to let them "rest" for about 5 minutes before adding the vodka. It's an important step, often forgotten that improved the natural flavor of the cube
 
2012-09-14 04:45:00 PM
Are these gluten-free? It didn't say...

Much safer that getting ice in the wild.
I went ice fishing once and my wife almost drown trying to cook what I caught.

It also allows them to re-absorb the juices, so they stay moist and flavorful when sliced.

I like to add a sprig of parsley. Maybe a dash of hot sauce if I'm feeling picante.

Mine made a popping noise then cracked. :(

I'm going to try it again tomorrow after the stores are open and I can get the good water.

If it makes you feel better, *everyone* is sensitive to it, to varying degrees. Water contains a toxic solvent, dihydrogen monoxide, which can kill anyone in sufficient quanity or if it's ingested incorrectly.
