Picking the right juicer can be a daunting task. It requires a good research and at least a basic understanding of how to evaluate a product. I've really tried my best to make this process as easy as possible for you. So without further ado below is my Kuvings juicers review. I’ll discuss four different types of juicers. Read on to find out which is the best for you.
I’ll be honest and say I didn’t know what “masticating” or "Cold Press" meant when I first got into juicing couple of years ago. If you don’t know either, “masticate” literally means “chew.” You’re masticating when you chew, and this is what this Kuvings juicer does too. It grinds up the ingredients you put in without any spinning actions (that would be “centrifugal” juicers). At this low speed, it’s effective and efficient in extracting juice.
In addition to slow operation (80 rpm) and a 170 watt motor, it also features:
The ingredient will be automatically pulled down. This means you don’t have to struggle with pushing apples down and dealing with flying juices. The extraction system will also cut the ingredients further.
It’s more than just a juicer! Other than the juicing nozzle, you’ll also find:
The juice cup and bowl are made of Eastman Tritan. It’s safe plastic that is often used in sustainable water bottles.But I still have to mention that some other juicers are made of stainless steel instead of strong plastic.There’s also a five year warranty, which gave me some reassurance in case anything happens to it.The different types of nozzles and features can be a bit confusing too. They’re great to use, but might not be best if this is your first juicing experience.Kuvings Masticating Slow Juicer review: I think this juicer is worth every cent. And if you’re a pro-juicer who wants something more, this is for you!
Now let’s look at another masticating juicer from Kuvings.What’s the difference? Well, it’s mainly in the name. It’s upright.
This juicer takes up less horizontal space, so it’ll still fit if you have a compact kitchen. And while it also has a low speed of 80 rpm, it has a higher wattage of 240 W. It’s quieter (hence “silent”) and also doesn’t overheat as much.
Other special features:
Like I mentioned before, the juicing bowl and cup are made of Eastman Tritan.
The juicing screw and strainer are also made of GE Ultem. It’s water, chemical and heat resistant. So no worries about whether or not it can withstand your juicing!
There’s a magnetic safety sensor. It will stop the juicer if assembled incorrectly. There’s also a hopper and long feeding chute that stops things from entering the juicer when it’s in use. So it’s a helpful precaution if you have playful children and/or pets.
There are also 2 switches. The forward switch pulls the ingredients down (similar to the masticating slow juicer). The reverse switch pushes them up in case of clogging.
The masticating slow juicer could handle things like wheatgrass and carrots, but this one jams quite a bit.
There’s a pulp ejection system. Pulp is automatically separated so you can juice without disruptions. Rotation wipers clean the bowl and strainer during the process too. My only complaint is that the pulp ejection chute is a bit small. It can jam at times.
Plus, there’s a 10 year warranty for this, which is great!
It’s also harder to assemble. The magnetic safety sensor will tell you if it’s not put together correctly. But the sensor itself is confusing to assemble in the first place.
This juicer comes with a sorbet maker, cleaning tool set, smart cap and recipe book. The best thing about this (other than all the extra stuff that comes with it) is the feed tube. It’s 3 inches. That makes it the widest in the market!
This means you can fit a whole medium sized apple into the chute. This will save you at least 5 minutes of precious time.
What else is different:
Compared with the others, this one is easier to assemble. There’s a hybrid-system lock mechanism. You won’t have to twist anything when you attach the fruit bowl. It’ll lock automatically by itself.
This juicer’s selling point is its wide feeding chute. However you still need to cut up fibrous veggies beforehand. (You can see how this is done in the video below) It might produce pulpier juice too.
Kuvings whole slow juicer review: This is the one for you if you’re looking for an advanced and efficient juicer. You can juice entire meals under 15 minutes and the processing allows the juice to last a couple of days. Great for busy people!
The last Kuvings slow juicer comes with a sorbet and smoothie strainer. This one adds on to the previous Kuvings whole slow juicer mentioned above.
It has the same great features:
In addition to the sorbet maker, smart cap and cleaning tools though, you also get a smoothie maker with this.
My only complaint is that it’s on the pricier side. But I’m sure you’ll think it’s worth it.
Now that you’ve read my quick Kuvings juicer reviews, I hope you have a better idea of which ones are best for you. All are durable, safe and produce the quality juices you want. The only differences, in my opinion, are the extra features (different nozzles, sorbet makers, recipes etc.) and the price range.
Now go check out these juicers and happy juicing!
