Vremi VRM010636N Countertop Ice Maker Review
Vremi countertop ice maker makes a batch of 9 bullet/cylinder shaped ice cubes (each weighing ~8 grams) every 7-10 minutes. The quality is ice cubes is good and they are really chewable! Vremi ice machine is capable of making up to 26 lbs of ice in 24 hours. It doesn’t offer different ice cubes size options like some other ice makers.
Vremi ice maker has stainless steel housing which makes it look great and feel well made. It’s ETL and FDA certified. Vremi ice maker dimensions are 9.5 x 12 x 13.5 inches.
Interface is as simple as it gets – there is only 1 button and it’s obviously for turning the device on or off. Vremi ice maker is moderately loud, it’s not the loudest unit but neither is it quietest.
Vremi ice maker has removable ice basket which can store 1.8 lbs of ice cubes and 0.58 gallon water reservoir. Water from melted ice cubes goes right back into water reservoir. Machine is well insulated so ice cubes left in ice basket melt slower than in other similarly priced units.
Before you use it you have to leave it sitting upright for 24 hours before you can plug it and use. You also have to wash the ice basket and scoop in water. When you are about to use it for the first time don’t forget to check if the drain-plug has been closed and as per instructions throw away first 2-4 batches of ice cubes.
Overall Vremi countertop ice maker is certainly among the best in its price class. However if you love pebble ice and are willing to spend a lot more then perhaps FirstBuild Opal Nugget Ice Maker is the one you need!
