Cubed ice is what you should use mostly. Its ability to be used in many ways makes it an important kind of ice for making.
Cubed ice makes things cold fast because it has a lot of surface for its size. Little cubes touch the water more, so they make the temperature change quickly and get your ice bath ready very soon. When you really want to feel cold quickly, ice cubes are your good friend.
To make your ice cubes work best, you need to pay close attention. It’s good to use trays that are made for little cubes so they all come out the same size.
