Souper Cubes Review 

 

Have you heard of Souper Cubes? No…well, I hadn’t either until about 4 months ago. Let me just start by saying this review is completely my own and is in no way sponsored by Souper Cubes. I would only review a product that I actually own, use, and LOVE.

What Are Souper Cubes?

Souper Cubes are an amazing invention by a couple Michelle and Jake and they truly believe in their product. They are a family-owned business and you can read more about them here

Souper Cubes trays are very well-designed silicone freezing trays. They are made of thick silicone and the embedded steel rim makes them very sturdy. The lids are made from BBA-free plastic and fit very snugly. 

All of their products feature:

  • 100% FDA food-grade silicone
  • Fill Lines: for easy measurements
  • BPA free
  • Dishwasher safe
  • Trays (not lids) are oven safe up to 415°

Why I love Souper Cubes

I really love these nifty cubes because I HATE wasting food! Cooking with my Instant Pot I’m usually left with more leftovers than we want to eat in a week. Having Souper Cubes to freeze individual 1 or two-cup portions makes freezing, storing, and using leftovers a breeze.

Other than reducing food waste I also love using 1 cup Souper Cube trays for freezing sneaky smoothies, bone broth, yogurt, buttermilk, & mini bread loaves. The larger 2 cup trays are perfect for lasagna, spaghetti, rice, & desserts. They also make 1/2 cup trays perfect for pesto, hummus, & apple sauce. The two tablespoon tray is the perfect size for protein balls, tomato paste, baby food, and herb purees. And if that’s not convincing enough they also make a super cute cookie tray it’s the perfect size for freezing cookie dough, brownie bites, and fit’s perfectly portioned #40 sized cookie scoops.

How to use Souper Cubes

The options really are endless with what you can freeze in Souper Cubes and they are extremely easy to use. When you’re ready to freeze leftovers simply ladle or spoon the desired amount into the cube, wipe the rim of the tray and place the lid on. Transfer filled trays to the freezer where they easily stack on top of one another. When the cubes are completely frozen, usually the next day, remove the trays from the freezer and gently press the bottom of the cube until the contents lift out. I prefer to do this over a bowl or cutting board. Place frozen cubes in labeled freezer bags and place them back in the freezer. 8 one cub cubes fit perfectly in a gallon Ziploc bag.

 

Recipes I love to freeze in Souper Cubes

I have this 1 Cup set and this 2 Cup set I use them to freeze:

Are Souper Cubes Worth It?

After having and using this product weekly for the past 4 months I can say YES! Absolutely investing in Souper Cubes are totally worth every penny. Although it may seem a bit like an investment to purchase your first few sets of Souper Cubes just think of how much food you would potentially be wasting if you don’t freeze it. Having perfectly portioned-sized cubes makes using the cubes a no-brainer.

Pros:

  • Perfect portioned sizes
  • Trays easily stack for freezing
  • Easy to clean
  • Cubes store and stack easily saving freezer space
  • Reduces food waste
  • Meal plan easily from your freezer stash
  • Prepare food once and enjoy it multiple times
  • Easy grab and go lunches
  • Family can all choose a different meal

Cons:

  • Once you purchase your first set you will want them ALL
  • They don’t go on sale very often
  • They are an investment to start (but so totally worth it)

As you can see my pro list definitely outweighs my con list and I absolutely love this product and I will be purchasing more. Like I mentioned before it’s a family-owned business with a great product and genuine customer service.

How long does food stay good in the freezer?

That can vary due to how you store your cubes. If you’re using freezer bags expect some ice crystals to form on the cube after a few weeks so try and use them within 3-4 weeks.

If you’re using a food saver vacuum-sealed bag you could get up to 6 months if stored properly, however, if you only need one serving this storage method may not be the most efficient.

You can store the cubes in the Souper Cube trays, but then they are not available to be used for anything else. Having a resealable vacuum bag system like this that can be opened and re-sealed is ideally the best way to store your cubes for longevity and freshness.

How to clean Souper Cubes trays & lids

I was a little worried that the silicone trays might hold an odor like my silicone seal on the Instant Pot does or stain when using them with dark red sauces and I am happy to say that I have not had any issues with either. I have hand-washed my trays with soap and hot water so far, but they can also be cleaned in the dishwasher if needed. 

How to reheat Frozen Cubes

Most cubes do not need to defrost before reheating, they can simply go from the freezer to the stove, microwave, or oven. It really depends on what you’re reheating.

Freezing one-cup portions of soups and chilis are easily reheated in the microwave for about 4-5 minutes. I find it best to use a silicone cover like this when using the microwave method.

For larger 2 cups quantities or multiple cubes reheating in a pot with a lid on the stovetop works well.

To reheat lasagna or enchiladas you may want to use the oven to cook or reheat. Remember Souper Cube trays (not the lids) are oven safe up to 415° so you can prep, freeze and bake all the trays if you wanted.
