Push in the Indentations of the Pop-Up Ice Tray for Easy Access

Having trouble removing ice cubes from an ice cube tray is certainly a First World problem, yet one that contemporary creatives are more than able to rectify. The Pop-Up Ice Tray was conceived by Kool Limited's in-house designer, Yip Shing, for the joint purposes of making perfect little drink chillers and facilitating easy access to them.

The BPA-free and dishwasher-safe material that would be used here is flexible, but it does not require you to twist it to loosen its contents like the majority of its common plastic counterparts. The indentations can be simply pressed inwards from the bottom to gently force the frozen water out.

You might have already guessed that the Pop-Up Ice Tray is even cleverer than this. You can make ice cubes of three different sizes conveniently by depressing individual recesses initially to your desired depth.
