I'm freezing my own ice blocks with plastic molds that have lids. My ice keeps getting a crack right down the middle of the block and the top of the ice freezes lopsided. My freezer is set to 8 degrees. I don't know if I should be freezing my ice without a lid on the mold, or what I'm doing wrong. I'm also not opening the freezer while the ice is freezing. Does anyone have any advice for me? I attached photos of what my ice keeps turning out like.
Sounds like you are doing everything correctly. The only thing that i am noticing is the mold itself. when i was freezing my own ice, my buckets were very flexible and allowed the ice to expand a little outwards and not just upwards. Your mold seems very thick and the Ice may only have the option to go up causing it to crack. I could be wrong, but worth a shot.
These are the buckets i had bought https://www.amazon.com/Food-Grade-Gallon-Bucket-Pack/dp/B014I5H97Y They dont appear to be available as a 30 pack anymore. I am sure you can find them in lower quantities
