Excerpt: This juicer creates a lot of foam and it clogs easily when you're juicing leafy things. So I found the BEST way to make it work is to juice the softest things first and then work your way to the tougher/leafy-er things. So from cucumbers - apples - celery - wheat grass - parsley - and finish with kale, broccoli stalks, beets. The manual tells you to alternate between stringy things and harder produce but that doesn't necessarily work..
Summary: I used to juice in the past with a tradition style juicer. It was loud and messy. The slow juicer is quiet, easy to clean, and does a better job. It has stopped when try to juice thick carrots, but is easy to reverse and get back to juicing.
Summary: I had a Breville juice fountain that worked great for me for 6 months. Since I was juicing 3-6 times a day, I was ready for a slow juicer to get all of the nutrients and to have less greens strewn around the sides of the Breville and more in my cup. I researched this big purchase for months. Watched every video, read every review. And I made a mistake nonetheless. This juicer clogs when attempting to juice: celery (biggest problem), ginger, and all leafy greens.
Excerpt: Love this juicer & it has helped me broaden my diet with endless amounts of fresh juice! Only things I would change is make the mouth a little bigger and cleanup faster. You have to take it completely apart to clean, so making & cleaning up takes about 20-25 mintues. However, I think you have to do this with all juicers and it's just part of the deal.
Excerpt: My 1st Hurom made excellent juice but was defective & leaked juice all over. I exchanged it, & my 2nd juicer didn't leak, but made such thick juice it was like a smoothie. I follow their directions perfectly-cut the pieces up small & feed them through the machine so slowly that it takes me 45 minutes to make 1-2 cups of juice from veg/fruit prep to cleaning the 1/2 dozen juicer parts.
Excerpt: We have been using our new juicer for a few weeks and having a blast coming up with new combinations - the entire family is enjoying. It is a bit heavy and large but worth the counter space. Once you clean it a few times, it goes back together easier. I would highly recommend if you drink a lot of juice or shakes and makes wonderful mixers for adult beverages. Well worth the price tag to have juice free of preservatives and added sugar.
