Ice cube


Can someone explain why this ice cube did not freeze evenly. The tray laid down flat like it always was. Weird !!!

Good article Ron.

We get ice spikes too, with tap water. I didn't know there was a name for them.

I was going to state my idea, but seeing that someone actually knows what it is, I better keep my reasoning to myself.

... Unless I was right...

edit: I wasn't right.

Ice cube


We got them on average 3 to a tray when we rented in Portland, OR. We lovingly called them 'ghost fingers' even though we looked up the science.

One thing I miss with an ice maker
