We use ice cubes from these amazing trays every day. They are so simple to push out into your glass and so easy to refill. The lid comes on and off with ease. And don't think just tiny living spaces. We are a large home with a medium sized fridge/freezer and we have a stack of 3 trays in the front corner of our freezer. When we finish the top ice cube tray we refill and place it at the bottom of the stack, so that way we get "stock rotation" and the ice is always fresh. I love the quality of the silicone too. I highly recommend them, to every home, whatever the size!
