My refrigerator does not have an ice maker or even the little compartment in the freezer section for stowing ice trays and since my freezer is always stuffed full, it is hard to find a place to make ice cubes. A few years ago while leafing through a catalog of gewgaws and kitchen gadgets, I found just the ticket! It was a sort of bottle with half-circle bulges along one side. You poured in water to fill the bulges, laid the bottle in the freezer and before you knew it you had these cute little half-circle ice cubes. Perfect! Of course, it didn't work and after several tries, I threw it out. But I saved the little brochure that came with the product and the other day while going through some old papers I ran across it. Here it is, verbatim:
"The latest style of Instant ice-maker

if that ice melt to water the water either leaking out of ice-maker so that the food conserved in the refrigerator can apply as watering can the melt water cooling and thirsty refreshing. There's non-exist color-elements problems that actually proceed with environmental protections."
I never figured out what the non-exist color-elements problems were. And I don't know about that corn in the drinks, but I bet if the thing had worked it would have been most suitable for cooking picnicking & recreation applying and that the melt water would have been thirsty refreshing, too!
