I was wondering that, too. All I can think of is the trays that make ice cubes, but maybe it's the bin that holds ice cubes?

They don't seem to come with new refrigerators. They are a bin that holds ice cubes. I use one for holding my misc threads.

ice cube bins are usually used with refrigerators that make ice cubes but they can be bought separately when you purchase ice in the bag and put in the bin. Makes it easier to take from a bin than pull out of the bag. You can purchase them anywhere like Walmart.

When I was a kid, we didn't have refrigerators that made their own ice cubes. You had to fill the trays, wait until they froze, then twist the trays to make the cubes pop out. We'd put the cubes in the bin, refill the trays with water, freeze them.... shampoo, rinse, repeat.

I'm surprised people have forgotten this, I'm not THAT old!

We had ice trays that we used to freeze cubes. And I had an automatic ice maker that dumped cubes into a bin. When we emptied the ice trays they went into a plastic bag or a plastic dish pan.

Thank you,Peckish, for posing the link.

We still do it the "old" way - the make your own ice cubes refrigerators cost a lost less than the automatic ice cube maker models.

We had once - ages ago - it seemed to be more bother than it was worth.

I have water and ice in the door. And I love it!!!! Spent waaaay too many years filling ice trays to go back now. I have a Kenmore side by side fridge/freezer that we bought in I think 1996.
