    This autistic psycho does
    Urrm balance the tray, so that the water distributes its self Evelyn across all the pockets.

    Mystery ends.

    Unfortunately you just started the mystery of why you put the name "Evelyn" in your sentence. I mean, you even capitalized it!

    So did mine! At first I would think it was a typo on the word 'evenly' but then the E is capitalized. No possible way for a double typo, man!

    My guess is autocorrect

    Pocket by pocket.
    And because our tray is quite flat with wide spread pockets, I mostly use a spoon to fill up each of it separately.

    Magic doesn't exist. That's blasphemy, right there, mister.


    OT: Pocket by pocket, I've been doing that way since god knows when. =p

    I hold the tray at a very slight incline (just enough to make water move downwards) let the water fill the top 2 pockets, gravity does the rest.

    If you fill it pocket by pocket you risk not getting Evelyn ice cubes. It is absolutely crucial to get Evelyn ice cubes.

    Gravity. It takes way less time, and gets the same amount of water in each pocket assuming you hold the tray at a 45 degree angle and have an even water flow on both sides of the tray.

    I would just lay it flat under the flowing water and let it fill up.

    Now I have a freezer that makes them for me.

    I feel that automatic ice-cube making freezers are the reason we will lose the traditional art & skill required to make ice cubes. You really should get rid of that automated monster and help pass on the art to future generations.

    I scale only the most treacherous of mountains, intrude into only their most inhospitable caves, and collect from them only the most bone-chilling of ice. I then hand-sculpt these frigid monsters into cubes with a toothpick and a scalpel, and place them in my ice cube tray. I then drop my ice cube tray 1800m into a giant vat of liquid nitrogen, after which I store it in the coldest freezer available in the South Pole.

    I use my ice machine. I hit the button and ice appears.

    pocket by pocket, it makes them all around the same size.

    This is one of those things I just observed everyone else do and never thought about.
