Did you know that ice cubes were originally invented to lower the ambient room temperature?
American physician and humanitarian John Gorrie built a refrigerator in 1844 with the purpose of cooling air. His refrigerator produced ice which he hung from the ceiling in a basin. Gorrie can be considered the creator of ice cubes, but his aim was not to cool drinks: he used the ice to lower the ambient room temperature.
But who said that ice cubes should be cube-shaped?
Silicone ice cube trays can create any shape we want – from snowflakes to brains and guns. So, why not spice up your next party with one of these creative custom shaped ice cubes?
