A. It takes roughly 24 hours to make 2 inches of clear ice and 48 hours to make over 3 inches. There are variables such as, freezer temperature and position in freezer.
8. Why does one ice cube sometime have clouds?
A. Since the direction of the freeze is pushing the water down, it has to expand. Sometimes it will choose a random cavity to release the impurities. This is natural and will not affect the other cubes.

A. Two silicone trays of 24 cavities each (total of 48 cavities) to be used in a specified cooler..
