Ice Trays

After observing the video, we found that most people had problems from the beginning of the ice making process.

The chart shows some possible outcomes that happened once it begun. The water would either be too full or too little, so one would have to constantly be measuring if the tray was at the right proportion of water. We also found that when attempting to remove ice from the tray; in most cases the ice would fall onto the counter, and because of its slippery surface it would either all on the ground or slide through the counter.

This is a video of people’s experience and what seemed to irritate them most while following a typical ice making process.

Our Solution.

After research was complete we came to our new ice cube tray design. It consists of a plastic tray (similar to what the majority of people were using) with a flexible silicone lid that is liquid tight. This ensures no spilling when getting from the sink to the freezer, also allows for variable positioning within freezers (ie when freezer is full, tray can sit slanted, or upright without spilling). On the inside of the lid small, hollow, silicone spheres are intact to assist with removal of frozen cube; allowing the cube removal to be completely free from having to twist the tray, or to put any amount of physical effort into trying to get an ice out. All one has to do is simply pick it off.
