Hurom Easy Clean Slow Juicer

School is starting up tomorrow, summer is coming to an end, and cooler temperatures are on the way.  I always try to increase my fruit and veggie intake in the Fall, both to keep me energized as I go back to work, and to add extra vitamins to my diet, with hopes of warding off the germs during the upcoming cold and flu season.  One way that I increase my fruit and veggie intake is through juicing.

I have always enjoyed juicing, however, my biggest complaint with it in the past has been how much food seemed to go to waste with a large pulp output, and how much liquid was always still left in the pulp.  Every time I juiced I would comment on how wet the pulp was, and it seemed that so much of our organic fruits and veggies were getting tossed out.  When I had the opportunity to choose a new juicer, the Hurom Easy Clean Slow Juicer caught my eye right away.

This juicer rotates at just 43 revolutions per minute, so it mimics the motion of hand squeezing the fruits and veggies.  There are different strainers that fit easily into the juicer, so the amount of pulp and the consistency can be controlled depending on the ingredients used, and your preference.

Whenever I get a new appliance I like to use it a few times within a couple days, to really get the hang of it, and to feel comfortable and familiar with the parts.  I was instantly impressed with how quiet this juicer is; it makes a really pleasant squeezing sound, and it was neat to watch the juice filling up the chamber.

Our first juice was a bright mixture of orange bell pepper, carrot, grapefruit, and apples from our friends' tree.

We discarded the seeds and chopped everything into chunks before placing them into the juicer.   I was pleased to see that there was much less pulp with this juicer than our old one and that it was bone dry, meaning more of the fiber and nutrients ended up in our glasses.

The clean up is a breeze.  The pieces fit together and come apart really easily, and just need a quick rinse with hot water.  There are no sharp parts and no fine metal filter to clean, which was a nice surprise, as my old metal filter always needed a vigorous scrubbing.

We will definitely get more use out of this juicer than our last, because of the ease of clean up and lack of waste.  If the juicer needs a deeper clean there is a little brush that comes with it, although I don't think this would be needed every time.  It came really clean with a simple hot rinse.

Fresh, cold-pressed juice - the perfect beverage while enjoying a beautiful day on the deck:

As an added bonus, I had never heard of a juicer that could make ice-cream until trying it out with this Hurom juicer.  There is an ice-cream strainer that just slides right into the chamber, and then the ice-cream is extracted from the pulp outlet.

I used six frozen cherries and half a frozen banana for a single serving of all-natural, organic, healthy ice-cream:

Other juice combinations we tried included a cleansing juice with cucumber, apple, and celery:

And lycopene-rich, red juice with strawberries, bell pepper, and apple:

For those who aren't sure what to juice, the Hurom Easy Clean Slow Juicer comes with some recipe ideas.

The Hurom Easy Clean Slow Juicer can also be used to make nut milk, which I am interested in, as the store-bought stuff often contains ingredients I'd rather not consume.

Very cool! Nice that this was an upgrade from what you had before and works much better. I very very rarely drink juice. I usually only have it when we are up at my parents lake home as they always have several different store-bought juices. When I was in the Dominican Republic 10+ years ago we went to a little cafe with lots of different juices. I had never had carrot in a juice but I loved it. I think the combo I had was carrot and orange? It tasted so good and so fresh!
