Correct Art, ice can be super cooled. The 32 degree standard was the melting point of ice or "warm ice".
I'm going to check out the machine mentioned and see if the pricier models have metal ice making trays or plastic. I guess if you wanted super cooled ice you could run a batch and bag it for the freezer.

I'm in the market for one of the counter top ice makers, is the warm ice term indicating thin ice shapes that melt in drinks quickly ? Do any of them make solid ice cubes or other solid shapes ?
The photos of the ice in #1 post looks pretty solid, BUT cloudy.
More ice photos PLEASE and the brand of ice maker would help us buy the best machine.
I think we have officially gone off the deep end!!!!!

I can't stop my eyes from bobbling upon reading both posts time and again...

Make ice in an independent ice maker and then bag it to put it in the freezer???

Am I missing something here; you guys must be F'n with me! LOL

Or, are you simply playing with my afflicted mind?

Do you put the newly bagged ice right next to the filled ice trays in the freezer...?...?

Art, some of us have deep top opening chest type freezers, no shelves for ice trays to sit on. I have a built in icemaker, U-Line I think, we are not big cocktail drinkers so rarely bother using it, if I did I`d put what was left over in the freezer to save firing up the genset powered icemaker next time.
Then again, people we know with a large GB say their 2 icemakers struggle with the demand.

We currently bring bags if ice in our super insulated cooler and sometimes throw an extra bag in the freezer. Making ice in trays in our freezer takes forever, although do keep one or two trays in there for the ocassional drink. We don't really use ice for drinks, but do use a lot to keep cans cold in the cooler (too many to fit in the fridge with all the food). We do eat and drink well when on the boat.

Dang Art, ice trays ?? are they the ones with the handles you pull up to free the ice or the more modern type. Now you done it, those guys in Texas will be wanting to know all about ice trays.

I prefer Rubbermaid flex-plastic ones!

As they last completely unharmed many years in freezer-use with expanding ice as well as often flexing to break ice out... while the tray is made of very thin white plastic... makes me wonder material composition. I'm going to set one in the sun this summer to see how it holds up to solar rays??? I imagine not too good. Plan to report findings next winter!
