Making ice

The fridge in my '84 Scamp has a tiny freezer inside. When I bought it, there was a metal ice tray in there. Water froze very quickly in there, but we could not figure any way to get the ice out of the tray! We tried everything.

Today, I was walking around in Sur Le Table, and I came across a set of two silicone ice cube trays. They looked about the right size for the little freezer. They were marked at $12.95, but rang up for $3.99!

I tried them out, and they fit, but the freezer door just barely touched the tray when closing it, so I trimmed about 1/4 inch off the ends of the tray with a pair of scissors. Now they fit perfectly!

Can't wait to pour a nice gin and tonic on my next outing!

Looking at the picture, for a moment, I thought that the this is the whole fridge and the freezer is the part above the metal tray so I thought that "tiny" is an understatement! Thanks for the laugh (at myself) once I realized that there is more to your fridge than that!
BTW. If you keep the gin/whiskey/whatever in the freezer, you save on ice cubes and the drink is as cold and undiluted by melted ice as it should be!

Haha! Yeah, that's all freezer. I've noticed that the modern version of that Dometic 1.9 cu/ft fridge has nom freezer any more. I was ready to replace it with a new one, but then I fell in love with the idea of having ice. I also bring my whiskey stones along for the trip, though... When I was my drink "neat" but cool. Check out the whiskey stones on thinkgeek.com... Then look at user photos. The one with the bottle of Balvenie is the pic I submitted.

Cool shot! I mean in the photographic sense, even that that shot of whiskey must've been cool as well - I'm partial to Canadian Whiskey and occasional JD but no scotch for me. Still, cool shot and I mean it!

I have the same little ice trays - and use the ice for my Gin/tonics!

The only complaint I have about them is that they don't stack (until the ice has formed). But that is a small annoyance in trade for an iced drink on a hot day.

Good point, Anne. I guess it's nice that my freezer has that little top shelf, so I can make ice in both trays!

Lately, I have been buying one or two miniature liquor bottles every time I go to the store. I have about ten of them in the Scamp now... this brings a whole new meaning to the term "mini bar!"
