Spatula In & Spin OutApr 09, 2011
These trays are so easy to use: filling, storing, removing cubes and cleaning - EASY!
Filling: I like to whip up a large quantity of food at once and freeze it for the future. So far I've done a variety of purees and I simply spread it with a rubber spatula until it fills all of the cells - it takes about 30 seconds between pouring and spreading.
Storing: Put on the lid and stack them - done! I'm notorious for having a full freezer, and these freeze just fine even if it's not perfectly level.
Removing: Push on one side and it pivots (due to the rounded bottom)! Even if the tray was frozen while tilted, it'll still spin out just fine. Sometimes I leave the lid on and run hot water over the bottom, but I really only do that if I want to quickly remove every cube so I can reuse the tray.
Cleaning: Dishwasher safe. Another benefit of the rounded shape is that there aren't any angles to scrub out, it's super quick and easy to hand wash.
I love that they're in 1 ounce portions, it works fantastic to pop a cube or two of frozen fruit into a steaming hot bowl of oatmeal to bring the oats down to a ready-to-eat temperature. I also like to put a cube of fruit puree into the Munchkin Fresh Food Feeder 2 Pack ,Colors May Vary for a tasty cold teether.

Care required to avoid plastic shardsAug 25, 2011
I ordered two of these thinking they would be better than ice cube trays for freezing baby food. The instructions say that you just simply press on one side of a cube and it will just pop out. Not so. You either need to use a knife to loosen it or press REALLY hard. I opted for the second of these options, and pressed REALLY hard. Not only did the food shoot straight into the air and across the counter, but the plastic on the bottom of the tray shattered and there were little shards of plastic left lying on my counter (luckily not in my baby's food). This happened twice in a row. This is a very, very dangerous item for storing baby food. I will go back to using plain old ice cube trays covered in plastic wrap.
Update several months later: I don't find ice cube trays any easier to manage, so I went back to these. The instructions say that if the food doesn't just pop out, which for me it never does, then run hot water over the back. While this helps, it isn't normally enough, and usually results in water on the food. I have found that leaving the food out to thaw for 10-15 minutes, while probably not advisable due to the risk of bacteria growth and food spoiling, is the best method in getting the cubes to slide out easily. I should also say that the company contacted me after posting my original review and apologized, very politely made some suggestions on product use, and offered to replace my busted trays. While I still caution people in using these, I do continue to use the product (carefully) and the manufacturer has earned my respect based on their handling of my experience.

Expensive but high-quality -- frozen cubes fit Green Sprouts Glass Cubes and Munchkin Freezer CupsJul 15, 2011
The videos showing how the frozen food can be removed from these trays were helpful. The cubes aren't always easy to remove, but I'm not usually in such a huge hurry to get them out in 2 seconds flat.
Although I agree with most of the previous reviewers about the price and high-quality, I don't want to merely repeat what other reviewers have said, so I'll limit my review to mentioning one tip about its use, one tip about baby food recipes and two products that interface well with this one:
1. Brushing the insides of the tray with coconut oil before filling with puree seems to make the frozen cubes slide out easier. This way, the trays are really easy to clean too, with hardly any residue left behind.
2. For other recipes, wholesomebabyfood.com has been a good resource.
3. Compatible products: Green Sprouts glass cubes; Munchkins freezer cups
The two products listed above are just the right size for holding the "cubes" of purees frozen in the Mumi & Bubi trays. No chiseling or thawing is necessary to get the cubes to fit.

FantasticMay 18, 2012
After pouring over food tray reviews for hours, I decided to order these trays. They are so practical compared to the the other options available out there.
First of all, you get so many cubes with these trays. Most of the other trays hold half the amount these do and if you're like me, I don't want to be making baby food every month, so I need aot of cubes with my large batches.
Secondly, they stack well and the lids fit nice and snug. They're BPA free, dishwasher safe (no warping) and I find the cubes to be the perfect size.
There are reviews on here about how the trays crack and the cubes are hard to remove. I did experience this with my first use, but it was because I was using it wrong. I emailed the owner of the company and she assisted me almost immediately and sent me a new tray. I left the cubes to freeze over night so they were very solid making them hard to remove and I cracked my tray. Leave them on the counter for a few minutes and your thumb literally pops the cube right out with no effort & then I put them in freezer bags. Genius. I could not be happier, I just ordered two more and would reccomend this product to anyone who wants to make their own baby food. These trays could not make it easier!
Thanks Christina from Mumi&Bubi!

ABSOLUTELY THE BESTDec 17, 2011
I absolutely love these trays. Each cube is a 1 oz portion which works great since my daughter doesn't always eat the same amount for each meal. I just grab the number of cubes I need and I am good to go!
I know there were some reviews about it still being hard to empty the tray. It is really designed for easy removal and like anything frozen, the food is going to want to stick. My little trick is, I take the trays out of the freezer and let it sit for about 5 minutes on the counter. I then take a spoon and press on the edge of each cube and they slide right out. Once I have them out, I place the cubes in a doubled up freezer bag and throw the bag in the freezer.
They are top-rack dishwasher safe. I have one of those two drawer dishwasher where there is not heating element, so I can put them in either drawer. I have been making baby food for over 2 months now and always washing them in the dishwasher, and the plastic looks great. It has not discolored or warped like a lot of plastic does in the dishwasher or after a lot of use.
By the way, the trays are clear. The pictures you see here are colored because of the food inside of them.
