Anyone who knows a little about jucing knows that slow juicers are a lot better than centrifugal juicers. Although some may say with 150W is probably not the best, this is still a steal at this price.

I think I'd probably spend the extra £20 and get something like the Philips Whole Fruit Juicer which has great reviews. Also, has a 700w motor!

The Philips juicer you link to is very good but the juicer in this post is a masticating juicer whereas the Philips is a centrifugal juicer.
This explains the difference .....

Centrifugal juicers work at high speeds, tend to be noisy and while a centrifugal juicer may be able to juice the rind of a pineapple more efficiently, in most situations, the low speed action of a masticating juicer allows you to juice more vegetables with greater efficiency. A masticating juicer tends to be a lot more quiet, less messy and easier to clean.

A masticating juicer is especially good at juicing the very important green leafy vegetables such as wheatgrass, spinach, parsley, cilantro, kale, Swiss Chard, etc. While a centrifugal juicer can juice green leafy vegetables, the centrifugal juicer is nowhere near as efficient as a masticating juicer in this regard.

Some say the high speed action of a centrifugal juicer produces too much heat which then can damage or possibly kill the enzymes in the juice. While I can neither confirm nor deny this statement, one thing is for sure, a masticating juicer definitely does not create the friction that a centrifugal juicer will create.

One significant benefit of a masticating juicer is that it requires less vegetables, in many situations, to create more juice. As a result, you spend less on vegetables than you would with a centrifugal juicer.

It's also worth noting that a masticating juicer is much more versatile, in many regards, compared to a centrifugal juicer. Since a masticating juicer squeeze the items you put into it, you can also use a masticating juicer to make baby food, fresh pasta, grind meat and to make nut butter.

I've got a centrifugal juicer. It takes me about a minute to clean. Noise isn't really an issue, since it juices things so quickly. If I put the pulp through a second time it comes out pretty much dry. I don't know how much more juice you can really expect t get out of a fruit *shrug* Couldn't comment on juicing greens though, as I have no desire to juice them.

I'm not hairy or a biker, can I still use it....

Buy the juicer then follow this....

Excellent, inspirational movie, only free to watch till tomorrow.

in my opinion the slow juicer is better, started out with the philips (still got it) but the slow juicer wins.

Putting the pulp through a second time increases exposure to the air which deteriorates the juice (oxidation).
If health benefits are the goal, masticating juicers are recommended by the Gerson Institute.
Many people do desire to juice greens as they are beneficial to health.

is this like a vitamix juicer?

Thanks, was looking for one of these

got this for about £68 (~£64 after TCB) using the 10% off code. Hot the juicers good as I haven't seen many reviews on this model

£69.99 -less 10% with code now . Just got mine today - pleased with it.

hi to the people that own this juicer can you make nut butters with it or is it just a juice and nut milk juicer? emailed Robert dyas and been couple of days and still no reply. also how well does it use juice greens like spinach?
thanks

well I ordered it and it is just for juice it's ok but will definitely upgrade to a kuvings whole fruit eventually. the waste shoot blocks quite easily so you have to put something hard down after soft to push the pulp on through

I have to sieve the pulp out of my juice before I can drink which I had to do in my centrifugal anyway.

overall it makes great juice well that's after you've chopped everything up into 2 inch pieces which to be fair didn't take very long at all the juice has no foam comes out a very vibrant colour and doesn't separate.

takes a few attempts to put it back together easily well took me 5 attempts but did it this morning in 20 secs there's just a small learning curve from a centrifugal but definitely worth it overall.

just a little update for anyone thinking of buying one I take it back about the waste shoot blocking that was user error I had pushed the little plug underneath in too far.
love it now I'd intended to just use this one at work as it's so much smaller then my other one but haven't used my centrifugal since so I carry this one to work everyday
