I’ve had other juicers in the past that worked fine but this one is, by far, the best one. It may produce a little ‘pulpier’ juice but you get so much more juice from this one than we ever did on the fast juicers. I’ve never used the smoothie maker so i’m not so sure on how great that is but for juicing fruits, veggies and greens the hurom is awesome.
For the most part it does what it is supposed to do. However, after less than a year of using it it has begun to clog and leak. As expensive as this unit is it should perform well for longer than a year with moderate use (juicing every two days).
The only thing to really remember and/or consider is the time it requires to prepare the veggies, clean the machine, and the huge amount of produce required to make a decent amount of juice — but that’s not the fault of the juicer. Overall, a very good product, with good directions and tools included. Here are the specifications for the Hurom Premium Slow Juicer Model HU-700 Pearl:
- Make sure this fits
by entering your model number.
- Hurom’s patented Slow Squeezing Technology (SST) gently squeezes ingredients, preserving natural taste & nutrients lost by high-speed juicers that grind and crush. Slow juicing technology also retains heat-sensitive nutrients such as Vitamins A and C, and live enzymes.
- The new Pulp Control Lever and Juice Cap allow users to determine the level of pulp they want in their juices or allow users to make smoothies and blended beverages quickly and easily.
- Masticating juicers from Hurom can easily process fruits, vegetables, leafy greens, wheatgrass, nuts, and soy to make a variety of juices, milks, sauces, marinades, even baby food.
- Hurom’s durable motor has a 10-year warranty, uses only 150 watts of energy and is practically silent. The cold-press juicer features a heavy-duty Ultem strainer and auger, which is eight times stronger than traditional plastics and handles both coarse and fine foods easily.
- By choosing between juicing and smoothies, as well as pulp level in their juices, users have the ability to decide how much solid fiber they consume in their juices.
The previous poster got it right. The pulp ejector clogs and pulp comes out into the juice, no matter what setting you put the pulp ejector on. The juice is either really pulpy or extremely pulpy. The plastic rubberized piece that turns and scrapes the bowl strikes me as something that will break in short order and the pulp level switch also strikes me as breakable. Although this thing is aesthetically pleasing and takes up relatively little shelf space it seems cheaper and compromised from a design point of view as compared to a standard masticating juicer like an omega or samson. I have a samson and it has a large footprint but does not have any of the problems listed above. It is a beast and feels like it will never break. Although this juicer is decent there are design flaws and weaknesses that i suspect will shelf this juicer much quicker than the solid alternatives.
I am not sure if the seller is authorized to sell hurom, but this product cam to me with the wrong ‘bowl’ i returned it and they did not have it in stock to replace it. As a result, i purchased this from another location. I cannot begin to say how much i love it. Easy to use, easy to clean, and the juice tastes great. Because it is so easy and so much fun i edned up using it more than i thought i would.
Reviews from purchasers :
- My Hurom vs. Breville review
- Nothing beats this Juicer!
- great Juicer!
We juice usually twice a day and even though this being a slow juicer you have to do a little more prep work the results are worth it. Much more juice out of greens which is what we normally use, and clean up is pretty easy.
Very nice high quality product juice at one side trash out the other works just like its supposed to.
Bought it for my daughter as a ‘good luck on your new life’ present. She hasn’t had time to use all the features yet, but loves the juicer part of it.
Love the quiet motor and quick action. Everything tastes so much better. It is easy to run and clean up.
I love this juicer, it has made smoothies and delicious juices daily. It’s not loud and it performs awesomely. People co,plain about juicing greens, the trick is to cut and roll and juice with an apple following it or a carrot. Anyhow, it has not failed in delivering.
I am using this hurom juicer every morning. Cleaning takes a little time, but it makes a wonderful juice. Unfortunately the plastic container has a little cracks when delivered.
I like the premium juicer much better than the hurom basic slow juicer. Unfortunately, it was missing the juice cap so i am not able to make smoothies.
I need to preface this review with the fact that it is just my personal taste. This is my second juicer, my first was a breville juice fountain at half the cost. I gave the breville to my parents tto try this hurom slow juicer after seeing side by side comparison videos from the manufacturer. Let me just point out that i was satisfied with the breville but the video made me think it was inferior. Top reasons why i bought the hurom and gave up the breville, based on claims i thought to be made by the manufacturer/style of juicer:1. Nutritionally superior juice & somehow it would last longer2. Greater volume of juice with same amount of food3. The ability to make milks and smoothies and control the amount of pulp.
At first, when i bought this juicer, it was an impulse buy and i was pretty excited. However, i didn’t do my research very well and shortly thereafter i found reviews online comparing this model to lesser priced slow juicers and it didn’t stack up. However, i ‘bit the bullet’ and didn’t return this juicer so that i could make my own decision. I ‘upgraded’ to this slow juicer from a centrifugal juicer that i really liked – we used it so much that we thought it was time to move up to a masticating juicer. I gave away the centrifugal juicer, but i wish i would have kept it to work in concert with this juicer. The hurom premium hh does many things well, but i still find myself running the pulp through twice to get every last drop out – which i feel is what it should do in the first run. When i started juicing, i was running food through too quickly and the pulp would get jammed and the ‘juice’ would be very fibrous. This isn’t the worst thing, because i know that the fiber is good, but it was very different from the old juicer. After trying new methods (slowing down, not juicing fibrous foods), i started getting better and better juices and i’m slowly starting to come around to this model. You must go much slower than most juicers and chop your food up very small (celery goes best at less than 1′ long).
This is my third juicer, i previously owned two centrifugal juicers (a cheap one and a breville juice fountain). I’ve used the breville in particular many times of the course of the two years i owned it. One of the most frustrating things about that type of juicer is that cleaning the separation basket can be rather difficult. In addition, i found that the juices would often separate rather quickly after i made them. I also juice a lot of greens, and the pulp from the greens seemed to be rather wet – i could place them in cloth and squeeze a fair amount of juice out of them. I own a model very similar to this one, although i bought it in korea and the model number is a little different. I’ve done some checking, and this one is extremely similar (if not identical, aside from the voltage). I’ve been using it for a few weeks since i bought it, and i’ve found it to be an absolute pleasure to use. Here’s why:1) the pulp is significantly drier than from my old juicer, and therefore i get a lot more juice out of the same amount of vegetables/fruit.
Juices everything, easy to clean, not noisy, i’m really happy, use it everyday.
I was using this juicer to make green juice. I usually juice kale, cabbage, cucumber, apple green apple and such. It makes weird noises at first when i put cabbages and kale leaves but the noise does not bother me since i understand the mechanism of this machine. It makes nice juice but you don’t get 100% juice without pulp. There is some issue with pulp i think. I don’t mind little bit of pulp in my juice but when i don’t want, i just use extra strainer for it. Before someone ask me that i can juice wheat grass, and it does work for wheat grass i just tried. If you mind pulp but you want to get this juicer, william sonoma has this juicer with extra strainer.
1st juicer in many years – a 60th birthday present to myself. Great juicer and unlike so many my friends have – easy to clean,.
My first time juicing so i didn’t realize how expensive it is to produce a small quantity of juice. The machine however is great.
Fast shipping and my juice comes out tasting fresh everytime. I definitely recommend this juicer for prolong fast or if you are juicing daily.
I had been looking around for the perfect juicer. Love that i can make smoothies and control how much pulp is extracted.
