Two summers ago, after procrastinating for many years, I was ready to dive right into the world of juicing. My first choice was going to be a centrifugal juicer, as I owned one many many years ago. Though I kept hearing about these Masticating Juicers, and I was going to ignore them, until I watched this video called Fat, Sick, and Nearly Dead, a documentary about juicing (we will cover this topic in another post).
After watching many different comparison videos, I finally pulled the trigger on the one I currently own, going on two years. Take a walk with me, as I list out the Top 5 Masticating Juicers.
3. Nama J2 Cold Press Juicer
The Juicer allows less preparation time, which you can load and walk away from, as you batch juice your fruits and vegetables. Simply load your recipe, start it, and walk away so you can work on something else. The J2 will keep you from standing by the juicer as you hand feed the ingredients.
The masticating juicers auger slow pressing speed minimizes oxidation and heat which keeps the nutrients intact, preserving the natural flavors of your juice!
These juicers will yield up to 60% more juice from the same amount of ingredients than traditional high-speed juicers. This Juicer can only be purchased from their website, as it is not on Amazon.ca and it currently can only be found on their website for $550.00 dollars USD I do believe.
2. Hurom H – AA Masticating Juicer
This is the top-of-the-line model from Hurom, it is pleasing to look at with all of the clean lines and the stylish finish. It’s the performance that makes it the top-of-the-line model. The speed of this unit is 43 revaluations per minute, this slow speed ensures that the juice retains all of the amazing nutrients and squeezes out every last drop from your fruits and vegetables.
The Hurom H – AA is very quiet during the juicing operation. This is a godsend when I want a fresh glass of juice and Michelle is still sleeping. We live in a pretty small apartment, and this juicer has a pretty small footprint so we are able to keep it on the counter. Hurom has many different models, but this one, is the top of the line, and when it comes to owning a juicer, if you are really serious, you want to get the best that you can afford…and then some!
The Hurom H-AA is currently retailing on Amazon.ca for $584.00, which in my opinion is a decent price. Really I don’t think you can go wrong with any of the juicers I have written about here today.
1. Kuving Masticating Juicer
I actually have the Kuving Masticating Juicer (Elite C7000) and I have to say this is an amazing machine. We juice every day as I am a Juice hound, all that I consume doing the day is Juice. This machine is bombproof, as we easily feed it 10 – 15 pounds of carrots a week, that as well as Pomegranates, Kayle, Spinach, Apples, Oranges, Melons, Beets, you name it we put it through there.
We have not had a single problem with this Juicer, though it is pretty stained up since pretty much every type of fruit or vegetable will eventually stain the plastic. The C7000 is very easy to operate, all you need to do is line up the red dots, once that is done you can easily secure everything in place and away you go.
This juicer is certainly not the cheapest on the market, we paid about $599.00 Canadian for it, but it’s been money well spent. The deciding factors that made me choose this juicer are as follows. First and foremost, customer service. I emailed both Hurom and Nama, to ask a few questions with regards to their products. This was during the height of the Pandemic, so this may have been contributing factor. Crickets, I never and still have never heard back with regards to the questions I had.
One of them was if I buy it online will it actually get delivered because of the situation that was going on in the world. I had just purchased the third airline ticket trying to get Michelle back home, from airlines that were happy to take my money full well knowing that they were not flying. Kuving however answered my questions quickly with the information I was looking for. The next deciding factor was, I watched a comparison video between Hurom and Kuving, and the Kuving C7000, extract more juice from the same amount of fruit and vegetables.
I purchased my Kuving from Amazon, and they had it to me in about 10 days. What more could I ask for really. This particular model is selling for $699.00 at Amazon.ca and I would highly recommend purchasing this juicer. I have included some links to the Juicer’s I have written about here. If you decided to purchase one through these links, it would be a huge help to create some funding for this website and soon-to-be Youtube channel.
