What the heck is going on here? I put the water in and it's all flat but when it's frozen I end up with ice spikes almost like "tin whiskers" (»en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Whisker_%2···lurgy%29). It doesn't do this with our hard tap water but does it every time with the reverse-osmosis water at 1 ppm TDS. Any ideas as to what is causing this, does it with two separate freezers and the seals on the freezers are good. The ice maker is off. Maybe an issue with "distilled" water and it having an increased surface tension? Maybe molecular adhesion/attraction to the existing humidity in the freezer?
This post is really more about the curiosity of it and if anyone else has seen this phenomena, it does it consistently, it's not a nuisance or anything just thought it was really neat.
reply to IceIceBaby I think this is VERY cool. Built-in olive holders ... what could be better? More bleu-cheese? I'd never heard/seen of this - that wiki article is awesome. -- That's "MISTER"Kafir to you.
