Juicer

Recommended Posts

Thinking about buying one of these so I can make my own drinks at home. Any experience of buying and using one here? Good brand / model, decent prices, location, ease of cleaning etc, etc...

Quite like the look of the type you see the shops using (masticating???), but know very little of these machines apart from what I've read on the net.

Cheers

Thailand Juicer sells a very good quality slow juicer. Me and a lot of my friends have bought one. Good machine, warranty and parts offered. Can buy on Lazada and have it shipped to your door too....or buy on face book.

Looks good, but for some occasional fresh juice I'd not burn 7k for this machine.

The shops I go to use Philips or Tefal Blendforce.

Tefal

Phillips

http://www.lazada.co.th/philips-hr2108-15-1783000.html

Around 1000-1500bht

I have one, a friend bought the other, both work well.

Hardly worth it as my local market sell smoothies for 15bht a cup.

3 or 4 in season fruits ....... yesterday was banana, honey melon, apple.

Do they deliver? Your local market, not Lazada....

Juicers only give you the juice which is full of sugar….you miss out on the pulp which balances out with fibre and other nutrients.

Consider a nice blender like magic bullet where you can make your own smoothies etc.

Masticating juicers are pretty pricey too.

The Reboot juicer came with a smoothy strainer, if I want more pulp. Or a juice strainer, and an ice-cream strainer.

We use it many times a week. Almond milk is one of our favorites to make now.

Magic Bullet's ate great,They're cheap, they use whole fruit which is healthier for you and they're easy to clean. Alot of the juicers are a hassle to clean.

Some time ago an "expert" juicer told us about the Mamaru MR6302 for 4,000 Baht as being the best value in Thailand. This is a slow juicer (important) and we bought from Power Buy - they had to order it from another branch.

We use our juicer every day for the usual 'green juice' and would recommend it as a low cost model.

Yes, you get a couple of sets of blades, One of them is a bean grinder, you make salsa with them too

The Reboot master 6000 mentioned by Vibe, is a slow juicer using a squeezing screw that rotates at only 60 RPM which avoids oxidizing the juice. The cheaper, fast spinning centrifugal juicers from Philips and Marumaru etc. uses a blade with small knifes that tear/cuts into the produce at about 10.000 RPM. The small juice droplets are thrown off the juicing knife and smashed into the juice container below creating a lot of oxidation. This quickly destroys many enzymes and some of the vitamins and micro nutrients in the juice.

Slow juicers are also a lot more quiet, the yield is higher and it can juice much longer before it needs to be cleaned.

The centrifugal juicers sounds like an airplane and tend to clog up with pulp stuck on the small cutting blades. The cutting blades also tend to get dull after a while and then the juice yield gets even worse.

The slow juicers pulp is dry and they produce about 20-30% more juice yield than a centrifugal juicer with most types of produce.

I also use a Reboot master 6000 with large feeding tube and screw. It cost a bit more than a Philips, but in the long term it saves money because of the higher yield and the quality of the juice is so much better because of the "cold press" way of squeezing the juice out of the produce instead of cutting/tearing at app. 10.000 RPM.

I also use my slow juicer for wheat grass and greens/leafs which is almost impossible to juice in a centrifugal juicer....it comes with an extra blank strainer which I use for making peanut butter and banana ice cream and a smoothie strainer ......I bought mine from http://www.lazada.co.th/reboot-master-6000-juicer-black-1389371.html been working very well for about a year now using it almost daily.....sorry you centrifugal guys but I am just a slow juicer fan ! biggrin.png

Sounds like new age (advertising) BS to me!

As for yield, I drink everything I throw in, yield is 100%, so you can't get any more.

PS

You don't clean it every time? ...... that's disgusting.

Juice is juice, doesn't matter how slow-or fast- you squeeze it.
