Our Analysis

The Green Sprouts Silicone Freezer Tray is a popular option for those families who are making and freeze-storing their own baby food and want to do so in the healthiest and safest manner possible. Free of BPA, PVC, phthalates, and nitrosamine, this freezer tray allows for 15 one-ounce cubes of puree, which can be removed after freezing in order to reuse for freezing another puree. As it does not come with a lid, popping out the cubes after freezing is necessary to prevent freezer burn. The silicone material is heat resistant up to 425 degrees (F) and is dishwasher and microwave safe.

While the majority of reviewers report how simple it is to pop out the frozen puree cubes, some others report that the flexible material makes it hard to push the cubes out and is prone to ripping. It seems, however, that if you avoid overflowing the puree when filling up the trays, removal becomes much easier.
