Meet the Maker
Onyx Containers came about shortly after the founders had a daughter, and like most new parents, they became more aware of the health compromises present in eating and storing food. They wanted an alternative to plastic that was more durable than glass, and landed on stainless steel as the best option. They believe in safe and environmentally responsible products that don't break the bank, and they use all of their own products themselves -- a testament to the quality of each piece.View Full Profile

Works well, no smell!
A couple of years back, silicone ice cube trays were new and cool, and that’s what we did. But over time our ice was tasting off. We tried filtering the water first, then washing (and scrubbing) the trays. Couldn’t get rid of the smell, no matter what we did. The New York Times’ Wirecutter writers found the same problem and recommended good old-fashioned metal trays. So we looked around. These seemed to be best, so that’s what we did. Yes, they cost more than some others. But they are sturdy, the steel is great quality, and everything works. And as to the cost, we won’t have to replace these in 3 years; I can’t see these ever wearing out or picking up a bad smell that I can’t wash off.

Super useful, hearty ice cubes! Love.
Used at my family home, then purchased again for my own place because of how great this product is. I love the size and shape of the ice cubes—restaurant-worthy! PRO-TIP: let the tray thaw for 2 minutes on the counter, or run under hot water before pulling the handle.

DO NOT BUY!! Does not work at all.
I wanted to love this so much but it DOES NOT WORK. Here's the review from Gizmodo that I wish I would have seen before buying. Bottomline: save your money. DO NOT BUY THIS! "A large lever is meant to literally pry your cubes out. And it does. Sort of. Unfortunately, owing precisely to the fact that it's made out of steel, the ice sticks inextricably to the thing itself, meaning that a tremendous amount of effort is required to get those cubes the hell out of there, and when they do, they fly out en masse. Straining desperately, like a submarine captain struggling to flip some crucial control, isn't conducive to outdoor booze fun. Especially when you get a face full of ice."
