The Ice Cube Trays of Life

Sears Kenmore Refrigerator
Ice Cube Trays 1977
These still being used ice cube trays have made it from move to move with me over the last 37 years. There are no dents, cracks, or defects. By virtue of their perseverance, they should have names. Better yet, with my favorite 1975 wood platform suede and leather heels, have them buried with me.

How old are your ice cube trays?

  1. My refrigerator makes its own ice. It just pops out when you press your glass against the little handle... but I do miss those ice cube trays! Those were the days... Did you make koolaid popsicles too?

  2. Hello Katherine,
    Your post about artwork prints brings up a good point. Thank you for posting that

    Yes, koolaid pops were a summer treat. I forgot about those. A little mint leaf in an ice cube can be a refreshing test to ice tea.

    Have a wonderful holiday week-end

  3. I am mentally compiling a list of things that are: "not as good as they used to be", in terms of cheap construction and lesser quality.
    I have some of these as well and they must be 30 years old.
    I did however, toss out the 'platforms'…. :D

  4. Oh, I miss the old ice cube trays - I have an ice maker, also. Read the comments up above - LOVED the popsicle makers from Tupperware, as a kid. Would probably still be using them if I had them.

    1. Hello Tanya,
      It isn't uncommon to find Tupperware popsicle makers at yard sales and thrift shops.
