Good find, was the same price at John Lewis but it's sold out now. The going rate for this is around £70/80 at the moment.

These things spin so fast and generate heat oxidising whatever you throw in them.
Google Hurom Slow Juicer..

Check for space at back of kitchen cupboard before purchase.

I've had one of these bad boys for a few years and use it regularly. Ignore all the talk of heat and oxidization ... it quickly produces seriously amazing juice in a minutes.
You'll never throw away any fruit again and find yourself buying up all the reduced price fruit in the supermarkets ... you haven't lived until you've tasted pure strawberry juice!
As a bonus, if you have a compost bin, the waste solids makes superb compost.

Ive always bought the frozen fruit in the supermarkert and blended with a hand blender then add juice for a perfect smoothie.

There's a difference between smoothies and juicing. Juicing is more for vegetables (e.g. carrots, kale, spinach, beetroots) where you absorb the nutrients more directly than eating the vegetables and absorbing the nutrients from the solids.

Many people have seen Fat Sick and Nearly Dead and turned to juice fasting as an alternate method of diet.

Oxidising doesn't happen instantly and can be prevented by filling a container to its limit (reducing the amount of air in the container.

Also oxidation can be prevented if you decide to drink the juice immediately.

We have one of these in a plastic body. Does the job but they're not great.

They mash up all the pith and crap you don't really want to juice so you need to remove anything you don't want to drink. There's also quite a lot of moisture in the waste pulp.

While they cost a lot more, people swear by masticating juicers.

Average price, often £50.

I have this juicer. Very good, very noisy, pretty big. Use a plastic bag in the pulp container to save on cleaning. Agree frozen fruit is the way to go with berries etc.

I own one of these, they're the best out there in my opinion. A lady in Thailand used two of these to mass juice all fruit and veg for hundreds of customers a day. Great product, great price.

I bought one of these and the juice from it tasted so nasty.

Maybe that was more to do with what you put in?

The oranges we put in were fine, we tasted them prior to putting them in to test if they were sweet or not. So no issues there, it just didn't work for us the way we wanted it to. A lot of juice also gets wasted and goes to that thing in the back.

Did you put the oranges in without peeling them?

My exact thoughts.. I tried it once to harvest the goodness in the peel.... Never again... really disgusting!

This is just an average price for this model... New version out tomorrow

It's an awesome juicer for a fantastic price. Have some heat!

Thanks op, ordered

I got a similar model a few years ago. Not sure if the design has changed since then but it was a pain to clean.

Bought one Friday night, its a great juicer we've been using it non stop. Only prob takes quite a bit of fruit n veg to make a litre of juice

Do you get froth with this model?
I've tried many and not found one without.

Furthermore, oxidation will be minimal if A. the fruits are cold themselves from being stored in the fridge and B. simple because its only heated for a second or two. Which is not really enough to destroy any micro nutrients.

Oh, and the new model is twice the price?

I got one of these 2 weeks ago and I love it.
Easy to use and the taste of the fruit juices is simply amazing.
I've been juicing like crazy ever since. It also comes with the Jason Vale Juicing book of recipes.
Been juicing loads of green lead based vegetables too to make fantastic and highly nutritious drinks.
Perfect for post training/workouts recovery.
Highly recommend this unit.

I have this and use it everyday, good bit of kit but it's usual price in currys is 69.99 not 110!

A bit of a pain in the **** to clean (put a carrier bag in the back bin where all the mess goes) but good results. I got it off Flubit for £62.01 recently, so it's cheap but not amazingly so.

I have one of these and bought it when it was about £50. I think that is about what it is worth in terms of build quality and the price you would want to pay for a centrifugal juicer.
I would say this, and these types of juicers, produce a lot of wasted pulp (depending on what you put in obviously), I always have to re-juice a few times whatever ends up inside the walls of the chute and the collection bin.

It can be a pain to clean afterwards, despite claims of it being easy to clean.

Also, as it's made with brushed aluminium if you get it dirty on the outside it's even more of a hassle to clean, because you can only effectvely wipe the direction of the brushing (which is horizontal).

With regards to Oxidisation, that happens immediately, the rate at which oxidisation occurs in your particular environment can be different, although not by much. So yes, your juice will be affected by oxidisation immediately.
More importantly however, there are also studies that show that heating the juice, fruit or pulp over a certain temperature can start destroying the nutrients (I think it was 43 degrees C), and if you are juicing a lot of fruit or veg the spinning blade platter will get hot quite quickly.
OliWarner is correct and Masticating Juicers, while a little more expensive, are actually the best way to go as they squeeze your fruit and veg under a lot of pressure through various stages of 'meshes' using a lot of pressure and also don't expose it to air until it comes out.

Just pre-ordered it.

These centrifugal are good starter juicers, but they take a lot of fruit and veg to get a decent amount of juice. The pulp is still fairly wet, but they are quick to use and reasonable simple to clean. They are are not great for green leaves as the yield is poor.

If you want to do some serious juicing (as detox for days etc) then a masticating juicer is best. They provide a greater amount of juice for a significant less amount of fruit and veg and the pulp is almost dry. You also get significantly less froth with a masticating juicer.

I have both - bought this one first to see if I would use regularly and then invested in the more expensive masticating one.

In terms of oxidisation - this starts right way irrespective of what kind of juicer you use.

Good deal
Isn't buying tropicana and innocent juices and a like cheaper than buying the fruit yourself along with the machine and messing about?

Aluminum? Good luck with that one. No wonder some people who owned this say that it made the juice taste nasty.
