Tesco Easy Seal Ice Cube Bags
Advantages: Perfect Ice
Disadvantages: see review
Although the weather hasn't been great this summer in Scotland, I remain hopeful and still enjoy a refreshing drink. As everyone knows, no refreshing drink is complete without being poured over ice however without a fancy ice dispensing fridge/freezer ice can be a hassle.
Tesco easy seal ice cube bags are just the solution that is needed.
There are 10 bags in the box each with 24 separate spaces, so you do the maths. That's a lot of ice. To fill the bag all you need to do is hold the bag under the tap, holding the small funnel shaped opening so that the water easily flows in, filling every compartment.
Once filled the bag is simply turned upside down and this seals the opening. No need to fiddle around with knots.
I find these bags so much easier than a conventional ice cube tray. I can never find a big enough flat space in my freezer to put a tray in so that the water doesn't run all over the place. With the bags you can squeeze and bend them into smaller spaces. The bags also avoid that awkward slow walk from the sink to the freezer as you try desperately not to spill loads of water everywhere.
Once the water is frozen, to get the ice cubes out you are supposed to pull the sides of the bag in both the horizontal and vertical directions. This is supposed to break all the joins in the middle of the bag allowing the ice to all collect at the bottom, like a conventional bag. However, in my experience this is near enough impossible, no matter how hard you try. The plastic is far too thin on the outside of the bag meaning the ice just bursts through when you try to do this. This is not much of a problem as you can just pop a few out as you need them and put the remains back in the freezer.
These bags give perfect ice every time and do their job well. The price for this product is usually around £1 in my local Tesco. This is great for 240 well made ice cubes that can easily fit around the rest of the things in the freezer.
I always try to keep a bag of these in my freezer so I always have ice. I've had parties before where I've had to use a lot of these little gems to get plenty of ice for everyone, but when it is as simple at filling a bag with water and shoving it in the freezer, it really isn't a problem!
I'd give this product 4 stars overall, simply because the bag breaks too easily when trying to collect all the cubes in the bottom of it. Other than that, a perfect product.
Summary: Very n-Ice
