    The smart person knows when filling ice trays, to pour a little bit of water off the top when done. This keeps the ice from being too hard to eject, and also keeps layers of ice from forming between stacks of trays.

    The clueless person thinks GEE GOLLY, THE MORE WATER I PUT THE MORE ICE I HAVE THE LESS I HAVE TO FILL UP THE TRAYS!


    Please, before you reply how you've had an ice maker since 1973, stop yourself :tongueout:

    AH HA!!!

    But the smartest person knows that by filling the ice cube tray as high as possible, the cubes will be connected together by tiny ice bridges. And then, when the ice cube tray is emptied into the bin at a precise, strategic height, they pretty much all seperate into their individual, slightly larger, cubes.

    Thusly, larger cubes for keeping beverages colder, longer.:supergrin::supergrin:

    And the mind of an even smarter person knows not to fill an ice tray completely in the first place, so you don't have to pour some off the top at all. :thumbsup:

    Wouldn't smart people not overfill the trays to begin with?


    I've never had a problem with ejecting ice that's been filled over the top and connected so I must be smarter and stronger than you.

    The smart person is a time conserving person. It is faster to turn the water on high and quickly over fill the trays, then do a quick side dump.

    Isn't it a waste of time creating a thread about not filling ice trays too full?:dunno:

    The smartest person just puts his drinks in the fridge, and has a cold drink without needing to water it down with ice.

    The smartest people earn enough money so that their help ensure the ice bucket on the wet bar is always full.

    That's my definition of smart.

    Ah, so it's a compromise for you: you're willing to waste a bit of water instead of a few seconds that it takes to fill it to the correct level.

    Man, the stupid crap we argue about. :rofl:

    Yes, I don't care that millions of people in Africa don't have enough clean water to drink or bathe their yak in. I'm an American, this is how we fill our ice trays.

    You have to click on the photo ad. I don't know why the link does that.

    You know you are on a gun forum when removing ice from a tray is called "Ejecting"

    Actually, if you hold the tray at the correct angle under the faucet and let each reservoir fill and overflow into the next then when you set the tray horizontally in the freezer it will be filled to the ideal level to prevent freezing together AND you will not have wasted any water.
