Quiet and Efficient

This super quiet, energy efficient unit (120 watts with a quiet cooling function), produces up to 26 lbs of ice every day. Each bullet-shaped ice piece weighs 8-grams. It makes ice every 9-minutes, and it only makes one size ice cube. Though this ice maker only makes one size, the size is perfect for any drink or the opening of a water bottle.

Product Summery

There are several specs that make the Vremi Ice Maker a great portable ice maker. It has a great stainless-steel design, and it’s build to last. This portable ice maker produces 26 lbs of ice and hold 1.5 pounds of ice at one time.

This ice maker produces bullet-shaped ice cubes which is semi-chewable, but is not as chewable as nugget ice that is produced by the Opal Nugget Ice Maker.

The water reservoir is positioned under the ice bucket so that melting ice will go back into the water reservoir to make more ice. The water reservoir hold 2.2 liters of water at one time which is a standard size for a portable unit. 120 Watts

Bullet-Shaped Ice

The ice is air-filled which means it has a white/cloudy color to it. If you are looking for an ice maker that produces clear ice, I suggest that you read about my clear ice review post. As mentioned above, it produces bullet-shaped ice which has a harder consistency then nugget ice, but softer than regular ice.

The ice from this unit should not be confused with nugget ice. If you are looking for sonic or nugget ice, then we suggest that you purchase the Opal Nugget Portable Ice Maker. This ice is chewable, but it’s not as good as sonic ice for chewing.

Easy To Operate

There are great features that are built into this ice maker that makes operation a breeze. When the 1.5 lbs ice bucket is full or the water reservoir is empty, the unit will automatically shut down and indicate to you with an LED light.

The unit also has a 2.2-liter water reservoir that is easy to fill. You don’t need any water lines or drains with this unit. This makes this unit portable so you can use it where ever you like. All you need is water for the reservoir and a power outlet, and you are ready to go.

Easy to Clean

There is a removable ice tray that makes cleaning this unit easy. Just remove the tray and wash down the walls with a cleaning solution. It’s straightforward to clean this unit, and we suggest that you wash and rinse your unit twice a month.

Don’t Waste Water

The water reservoir is insulated, but the ice will melt over time. As the ice melts, the water returns into the water reservoir to make more ice. If you are not using the ice right away, I suggest that you put it into a freezer bag and put it into the freezer for future use. If you are looking for a unit that keeps your ice frozen then take a peek at my post here for more information. This ice maker does not have a filter to purify your water, so we recommend that you use filtered water in the water reservoir.

The Vremi Ice Maker is an excellent unit for your home. Its modern stainless steel design is sure to fit into any kitchen decor. It will make a perfect fit for any home bar, on your kitchen countertop or your table.

This ice maker has a 4.5-star rating on Amazon, and great customer reviews.

The price for this portable ice maker is reasonable. It’s not the most expensive portable ice maker on the market, but it’s not the cheapest one either.

One of the reasons this unit would be a little more money for it’s size is because of the stainless-steel design. You could get a portable ice maker that’s a little cheaper but you’d be lacking the premium materials used on the Vremi Portable Ice Maker.

Final Verdict

This is a good portable ice maker at an affordable price. It’s a great design and built to make a lot of ice and last you a long time.

  1. I’m needing a power circuit board for my 1.5 year old VREMI ice maker. Support at VREMI says that no internal parts are available. BUYER BEWARE: If your unit needs any part after warranty, You cdan just throw it away as no parts are available. L P

    • This is common for cheaper ice makers. The parts to replace are worth more than the actual ice maker. At that point, it’s better to purchase a new ice maker.

  2. Thanks for the tip. I’m trying to take mine apart to figure out what’s up with it malfunctioning now. Maybe I’ll just save the time and chunk it. It worked great for a solid year.
