Old School Metal Ice Cube Trays? Yes.

October 2, 2008


I understand if you are not with me on this one, but just in case. I love these old school aluminum ice cube trays. The ones with the lever that you pull. We keep a few of those yucky plastic ones in our downstairs fridge. These would be much, much better. Wouldn't it make you feel like a Mad-Men-era bartender, cranking that lever over and sliding those ice cubes into a crystal highball glass?

  3. Ooh! Love these! I've never seen them before but they scream class...I have a bunch of photos of my grandparents hosting killer cocktail parties in the 60's and these would fit right in. I don't even drink but they make me want to order up a 'double old-fashioned'!
