VEVOR 110V Commercial Ice Maker Machine Review



If you are a business owner or just throwing a party a regular countertop ice maker that makes 1lb of ice cubes an hour just won’t cut it. In such circumstances you need a proper ice maker that can produce a lot of ice and keep up with demand. This is where VEVOR 110V commercial ice maker machine comes. It can make up to 120 lbs of ice cubes in a day which equals to (up to) 5 pounds of ice per hour which is plenty enough even in high demand situations.


Performance

VEVOR 110V ice maker machine makes 45 ice cubes per batch. The time it takes to make a batch depends on ice thickness you have chosen – generally from 6 to 18 minutes.

There is one flaw though – if you choose thicker ice cubes they will come out as a single sheet which you will have to break apart manually.

      • Single press turns on or off the blue light inside the unit.
      • Hold for 5 seconds: starts cleaning process.
    • “Thick” button: Increases the thickness of ice cubes with each press
    • “Thin” button: Decreases ice cube thickness with each press
  • Indicator lights:
    • Making
    • Harvest
    • Full
