By request, today I'm testing out the new and improved Ice Genie to see if it works better than the original.
The new Ice Genie costs about $20:

  • Isn't this a huge waste of space in your freezer?

  • For those wondering why products like this exist. Trays take up valuable horizontal space, and many of them are too stiff for disabled and elderly to pop out the ice. Just because something may be pointless for you to have, does not mean it’s entire existence is pointless. If you’re a man, does that mean maternity wear shouldn’t exist just because it’s not something designed for you? Obviously these products shown here are not perfect for that, but that is why they are getting invented in the first place and get re-engineered. Because there are people who need them.

  • The ask genie is like a regular genie. You ask a genie for something, and all you get is some weird interpretation of your request that is technically what you asked for, but not you wanted.

  • Best ice cube trays have a silicone bottom. You push the little button from the bottom. Voila! Easy, awesome ice!

  • I like mine but I also use cold bottled water for each batch because many reasons... If you already have it and have issues with blocked/refrozen cubes when doing more than one batch...try using cold/refrigerated water!!!

  • Oy’ vey ..😏 Don’t ya love the “up to” we always deal with .. idc what the product is 🤦🏼‍♀️ ..never makes it up to the “to” part 😄 ✋🏼 This is super embarrassing & cheesy for these companies, Idky anyone who would actually purchase one 😬 Good deal you showed everyone how worthless & a pain all the way around 🤣🤣 Ifff.. someone would purchase, my 1st thought wb run a quick splash of hot water on the outside .. ice should break up easier .. Old school & dollar store is the way 🤷🏼‍♀️🤙🏼

  • My local Dollar store now sells ice cube trays with the soft bottoms, so even if you can't bend the tray you still have a better option for less.

  • Best ice cube ever is at Dollarama. It's rigid plastic combined with silicone base and the ice cubes are large, almost 2inches

  • to be far,,,you wouldn't have had the huge fused ball if you put the ice right back into freezer. only reason they did that is because they had started melting before you put em into freezer. : )

  • Just tell the companies to make the original tray out of a stronger but still flexible plastic

  • The normal dollar store ice trays work like it's suppose to work and you can stack them, but you have that one person whose in charge of making ice and they always over fill the trays until the water kisses the edge so when you get ice, it all turns into one MEGA piece of ice. Better break your ice over the sink. ;-) Plus I'm not a fan of the dishware because some of the products are made of cheap materials which seep chemicals into your food. I have the New and Improved Ice Genie and I have NO problems using it what-so-ever, but to each is their own. I just make sure I don't over fill the channel to the top of the chambers and that there isn't any water going to into the cup. Otherwise the ice INDEED stick together. When you wash the blue cup (and the silicone cup), make sure you let it completely dry before placing back in or your ice will stick together again.(( I fill the silicone cup with water about 2/3 of the first Orb and place the blue cup in, then BAM! all perfectly filled channels. )) When you do have to pull out the blue cup obviously squeeze the bottle to crack the ice to help release the inner cup. Pull the edges above the chamber back to release any ice that over flowed to the top and clear it out. (little tiny ice counts for me ^_^) Then set the ice genie on a flat surface and with two hands, pull the blue cup out with your middle fingers or whatever to hold the ice genie down at the same time. I've tried taking it out with one hand like James did and I got already ice everywhere. lol But try experimenting different ways that work for you if my method doesn't work for you. have fun! :-)

  • Our freezer has ice cube trays build into the drawer handles. Not only do they make about 10 full sized cubes each, but they also take up "zero" space in the freezer; unlike these monstrosities.

  • Thw reasom they got stuck together is because you gave them time to melt before putting them back in the fridge. That's not the product's fault

  • My original ice genie came w/ an inner cylinder. I use it all of the time because I don't use ice a lot. It only takes an hour to make the ice. To break the initial seal, I just lean on the whole thing against the counter. It's just enough ice for my 1 glass of beverage. Sometimes I'll make more than 1 batch and the ice stores nicely in the center cylinder. I don't seem to have the problems you show. The shape is great in my freezer because it's more compact than oblong ice trays that you can't put stuff on top of.

  • The central cup needs a handle on top that you can twist to allow the cup to free itself from the outer tray. If it was a simple twist and pull method then maybe it could work? It's still so inefficient for the amount of ice you get.

  • Silicone Ice cube trays are the best thing you can get. The plastic ones break over time and if you overfill the ice can be hard to crack out. Silicone literally just pops out and it's not that much more expensive.

    Craig FromTheLandCraig FromTheLandپیش 2 ماه
  • Just want to point out that the ice chunk you showed at the end, that's because you let the cubes melt a little bit before putting them into the central container. Not really fair to criticize it on that point, but otherwise I think your conclusions are right.

    Judah GubbayJudah Gubbayپیش 2 ماه
  • Maybe about 40 years ago I was up watching the late late show when a commercial came on advertising a small brick of soft wax called “The Chinese Ear Wax Diet.” The theory was to pull off a small chunk of the wax, jam it in your ear as a reminder not to eat. The end of the ad show a woman at a diner party walking around with a plate of snacks. She walked up to a guy sitting on the couch, he waved her and the snack off, then repeatedly pointed to his ear, showing that the blob of wax in his ear works!. I am not sure if you put the blob of wax in both ears you would loose twice the weight, I am not sure, but it was the funniest and stupidest thing I have ever seen. To this day I consider it the dumbest product I have ever seen marketed. Along with many other products I have seen this overly engineered ice maker is getting close to the Chinese ear wax diet. How a corporation can spend all the time, money, testing, marketing on something that is so unneeded is beyond me!

  • I got a couple of the original ones and that was a waste of $40. I’m glad you do these videos because I have started saving so much money. Thank you so much! I will stick to buying my ice or getting regular ice trays. I just wish they still made the metal ones we used to have when I was a kid those worked great!

  • So the best way for them to improve the ice genie would be to have multiple fill cylinders, say 3 rings then you would get 30 on the outside, maybe 20 on the center ring, and maybe 10 in the inner ring, but again ice trays can be stacked and hold much more ice. Honestly when I clicked on this I thought it made spheres of ice, I think if they adapted it to make clear ice spheres in that amount itd be bought a lot more

    Brownmuta StreamsBrownmuta Streamsپیش 2 ماه
  • I just cant see how in anyway the ice genies better than an ice tray, so ice tray gives I16 cubes, and they can be stacked let's say 10 high so 260 ice cubes. But ice genie cylinder only let's you make what 32 ice cubes, and can stack what maybe 2 high in your freezer. Lol yeah ice tray all the way

  • The cubes fused together because you let them sit out for a while. This caused them to melt...and refreeze. If you pop them out of the tray and directly into the cup and back into the freezer that should not happen

  • The only time this would come in handy/be useful is if you need ice but you only have a very small compact mini fridge. ( like one in a Dorm or on a Desk) But if you have a larger mini fridge or a classic full size -- a 50c Ice Tray wins no matter how you slice it. Edit: Heck you can get them as cheap as 15c if you buy them 3rd hand.
