Hurom Slow Juicers are ever sooo s-l-o-w – and that’s a good thing for two reasons. First of all, the resulting juice is much healthier for you because at 80RPMs, the cellular structure of your fruit and vegetables does not get disrupted as would happen with traditional high-speed juicers which typically use anywhere from 1,000 to 24,000 RPMs. The slow RPM of these masticating juicers eliminates separation and more importantly oxidation, for a healthier and fresh tasting juice. All that while remaining “blessedly quiet”!
But if you think for a minute that you will have to wait longer to get your glass of juice, you’re in for a surprise. A Hurom Slow Juicer not only juices faster than most traditional juicers, but its yield can be as much as 35% higher – and with a much drier pulp!
Hurom Slow Juicer Advantages
High-speed juicers often expel food before extracting the juice. Not Hurom masticating juicers, simply because these slow juicers use a dual stage juicing process. First, they extract juice by crushing the ingredients, and then the pulp gets pressed before it is ejected.
The masticating and pressing actions break up more phytonutrients, resulting in a richer colored juice while retaining more minerals, enzymes and vitamins (42.7% more Vitamin C + 60.7% more Vitamin A) than traditional high-speed juicers.
Hurom Slow Juicers Are Versatile
Another main advantage of the Hurom slow juicer is its versatility, in other words the range of foods it can process. Not only can it juice all kinds of fruit, vegetables or leafy greens, but even wheatgrass, nuts and soy beans are no match for it.
Producing different kinds of juices seamlessly is not a problem, as the Hurom is also self cleaning: just pour water into the bowl while operating the machine, and you can keep juicing for up to 30 minutes without stopping.
A Few Tips for Smooth Operation
One customer complained of a problem with greens getting wrapped around the screw but resolved the issue by tearing up some of the larger greens before feeding them into the HU-100 slow juicer. Another solution is to alternate between stringy and more watery veggies like cucumber. Comments from enthusiastic proponents of the Hurom range from it being a ‘fast juicer’, ‘super easy to clean’, ‘fun and easy to use’ to simple surrender ‘I love it’.
The Hurom Slow Juicer is also a vertical juicer, which means it leaves a small footprint on your kitchen countertop. Measuring 9-3/4”L x 6-3/4” W, it does not take up much space, though you may want to check whether its 15-3/4” height will fit under your cabinets.
With a 10-year warranty and two international awards to its name, this slow juicer certainly packs a punch and comes highly recommended if you’re in the market for healthy juicing. If a masticating juicer is not for you after all, a faster centrifugal juicer might give you all you’re looking for.
