Adding just a little bit of ice can have a big impact on how a drink tastes. However, the trouble with traditional ice cube trays is they can take up prime space in your freezer and even get debris from other frozen packages into your cubes. Obviously, not ideal. But your ice cube woes are over if you get the highly clever Icebreaker Pop Ice Cube Maker.

Unlike traditional trays, this on-sale ice maker resembles a water bottle or flask. The design not only prevents particles from getting into the cubes as they form, but means you don't have to keep it flat while freezing; you can save space by stacking multiple trays on top of each other or placing them near or on top of other frozen foods. Plus, with a water-tight construction, you can count on less spills in the process.

One shopper who called it the "coolest ice tray around" said, "Icebreaker Pop has changed everything! No more leaky ice trays spilling in the freezer, (or on the way to the freezer), and no ice picking up weird smells and tastes from the freezer."

The ice maker's compact design expands and collapses and features ice cube molds built in on both sides, as well as a wide mouth that dispenses cubes. The unique item is easy to use — just fill it with water and put it in the freezer for about eight hours. When frozen, push down on the bottle to loosen the ice before using the two side straps to "pop" open. Then shake the device and enjoy full-fledged ice cubes.

Because of its small, portable frame, the Icebreaker Pop can travel with you to the park or the backyard. In fact, people use this ice maker at work, in RVs, or while camping. One confirmed it can "sit on [the] counter for a few hours," making it perfect for "on-the-go drinks."

Another likes to use this "nice little gadget" especially when guests are over because they can serve themselves without ever having to touch the cubes with their hands.

While the Icebreaker Pop started out as a Kickstarter product, it has certainly gained popularity since. The Amazon bestseller has earned more than 2,100 five-star ratings from people who call it a "game changer."

One last fan who dubbed it the "best ice tray of 2022" said it's handy to use in their packed freezer. "This tray allows me to fit it anywhere in my freezer because it has a spill-proof lid! Genius! Pure genius!"
