Wash all parts with soap and warm water or in a dishwasher.
Align the two halves of your Shape Tray and assemble.
VERY IMPORTANT: For the Large Cube and Sphere Trays, be sure to firmly push down and lock all of the internal Snap Posts (click here for photo) into place before freezing to prevent seams from appearing on the ice shapes and ensuring an easy harvest (six around the center sphere on the Sphere Tray, four around the center cube on the Cube Tray). This is easiest to do when both the snap posts and holes they lock into are wet.
Add water to the container up to the correct level for the Shape Tray you are using and insert the Tray. Use the upper fill line for the Standard Cube and Collins Trays, the lower fill line for the Sphere Tray, and in between for the Large Cube Tray.
Make sure to fill the overflow areas above each shape to account for evaporation. Place upright in freezer with temperature between -10 and +10 degrees fahrenheit.
TIP: If you are seeing bubbles or cloudiness in your ice, try to use hot tap water or increase the temperature of your freezer so that it is closer to +10 degrees fahrenheit.
After ~30 hours (depending on the Shape Tray you are using and your unique freezing conditions), remove the Phantom from your freezer and follow the directions for the specific Shape Tray below to remove the ice. If the bottom of your ice shapes is not fully formed, you may need to increase your freezing time.
NOTE: Use caution when carrying the Phantom Ice Maker when filled with water or ice, it can be very heavy.

Pair ice with your favorite drinks or return to the freezer in our Storage Tubes or a large ziplock bag and save for another time.
TIP: Let your ice "temper" outside of the freezer at room temperature for 2-3 minutes before pouring liquid over it to prevent cracking.
