Is there bacteria on ice cubes from the freezer?
Bacteria require warmth to multiply and thrive, however, when kept in cold environments such as a freezer, bacteria may become dormant, and become active after re-exposed to warmth. In fact, some bacteria that can survive in temperatures as low as 4 degrees celsius, without even being affected. To answer the question, yes, some bacteria can live in the freezer, however, most are not active at that temperature. ...

How long does a top freezer refrigerator take to make ice cubes?
There is no fully accurate answer because there are many variables that can alter the time it takes for water to freeze in an ice cube tray. (such as temperature of the freezer, size of the ice cubes, how much stuff s in the freezer, starting temperature of the water, altitude, etc.) What all this means is that depending on the situation, it can range anywhere from 40 minutes, to 5 hours for you to make fully solid ice cubes. ...
