Review: Vremi Silicone Baking Mats Set and Vremi Handheld Spiralizer 3 Blade Vegetable Slicer Set



This week, I have been trialling two home and kitchen products made by Vremi.

Vremi Silicone Baking Mats Set

First impressions, looks and construction

The silicone baking mats came in a simple cylinder container. This contained two half sheets and one quarter sheet rolled up inside, which opened into three flat mats for use. As with all Vremi products that I have ordered, the packing is tongue-in-cheek and makes for a more interesting unpacking.


Testing and Functionality

I noticed that the mats can be used for baking as well as for cooking savoury food in the oven, so I decided to use them for cooking some sausages. Lining a baking tray with one of the half sheet mats, I placed the sausages in the oven, turning them over intermittently during the cooking process. Each time, the mats were perfect in ensuring that the sausages didn’t stick. In addition, the juices from the sausages collected on the mat leaving the baking tray totally untouched (one less thing to wash is always a bonus!). Using the mats do not affect the smell or taste of the food.

When it came to washing the mat, the juices and the fat that had cooked on to it washed off with ease. A little dash of washing liquid and a light sponge wipe and it was like new again. I was very impressed with the ease of cleaning it, given the slightly burnt on fat. Although, I didn’t bake anything, I am confident that they would keep the ingredients from sticking to the mat. Also, as no juices are released from baking, it would be even more mess free.

After use, it was easy to roll the mat up for storage. Given the design, I also think that I will use the mats as heat resistant mats when putting hot plates on the dining table.

Overall

Performed exactly as I expected and functionally excellent.

Overall Score: 10/10

As of writing, these currently retail for £12.99 and can be found for sale on Amazon.

Vremi Handheld Spiralizer 3 Blade Vegetable Slicer Set

First impressions, looks and construction

The spiralizer and peeler come in a small box, accompanied by a small cleaning brush. The spiralizer was smaller and lighter than I expected, but feels solidly made.


Testing and Functionality

Firstly, using the peeler was fine. It was light in the hand and peeled the carrot as expected. As someone who is relatively adept in the kitchen, I have many kitchen utensils and I am quite particularly about how effective they are. Whilst the peeler worked fine, I felt that it didn’t glide as well as other peelers I have and wasn’t as sharp so needed more pressure to be applied for effective peeling.

Next up was the spiralizer. My first attempts were with a carrot which did not work very well. Whilst the spiralizer was able to cut through the carrot, it did not keep the pieces together, the results being little segments of carrot and some being mushed whilst being cut. I put this down to the texture of the carrot, so tried with a courgette.

The results with a courgette were totally different and did produce the spaghetti strings you would expect from using a spiralizer. It was a lot easier to cut through the courgette and it didn’t mush in the device, nor cut off part way through the process as easily.

Washing the device was easy – just a matter of unclipping the parts and rinsing through.

Overall

In summary, I would say that the peeler is perfectly usable but not as sharp or easy to use as more expensive products. In terms of the spiralizer, I think it fell a little below what I was expecting and ultimately it depends on the item you are intending to spiralize and harder vegetables may be prone to breaking off into pieces. A mixed result.

Overall Score: 5/10

As of writing, these currently retail for £7.99 and can be found for sale on Amazon.
