    Other for me I guess. The method I use is closer to pocket by pocket but not really. I just move the tray back and forth under the water a bunch of times until it overflows.

    Well here's an obvious answer, poor water into the tray and then put it in the freezer.

    You got infracted for that? I thought it was rather funny - and obviously meant as sarcasm than really insulting somebody.

    Meh, I got an infraction a couple weeks ago from the same mod for making a joke alluding to an earlier post in the same thread. Maybe I offended him somehow without realizing it.

    Of course it doesn't. If you want a built in ice machine they're very expensive. Cheap fridges tend to just be basic and not have all that fancy stuff.

    As for me I just fill up the entire thing. I don't know if you call it pocket to pocket. I just fill it in the middle and it overflows onto the rest. When it's completely over flowing I just tip it a bit to level it out.

    ^ The barriers between individual cells are usually lower than the main one bordering the tray. You can do it the "gravity" way without tilting it.

    lmao what a tupic, i use gravity though i have been very interested in one of those "American" fridges as we call them here. Those fridges where you can put a cup/glass under whatever it's called and it spits out a few cubes.

    Would tell you how it works, but it's a national secret.

    Gravity. Pocket by pocket is wayyyyyy too frickin slow. lol


    That said, god do I miss having an automatic ice maker. I mean, my fridge has one, but my house doesn't have the plumbing required for it. It sucks.

    I use Ice cube bags.

    I put my tray under the tap and horizontally position it so that the stream of water hits the centre of the tray. I turn on the tap until the tray is overflowing. I turn off the tap and place the tray in the freezer. My ice cube tray is currently snapped in half because it's cheap garbage, so I must do this for both pieces. There's no thought required at all; I'm surprised this is even a topic.

    Gravity, way easier. My sister does it pocket for pocket though. Or we use those bags Siggma posted about.

    Our freezer is damn old, but as it still works, it doesn´t need to be replaced.
