I love this juicer, it is my baby. You know you have a good juicer when the pulp comes out dry. The clean up is a bit tedious, but that goes with juicing.
I’m extremely happy with my hurom juicer. To me, it’s the best of both worlds between the fast juicing breville and the slow juicing green star. The hurom is a fast juicer, super easy cleanup, fun and easy to use, and i love it. I get plenty of juice in one session, which is great. It quickly and efficiently juices greens like kale and romaine while flawlessly juicing cucumbers, apples, and other “watery” fruits. The pulp varied from dry (hearty leafy greens, like kale) to semi-moist (romaine, apples, etc). The juice typically had little foam, but it would depend on what i juiced to determine that. I like to strain my juice quickly with a nut milk bag after making it anyway, so if there is a little pulp or foam on it, it gets held back when straining. I have three juicers: green star, breville and the hurom.
I was so impressed with their commercial, and it makes sense to me to get a slow juicer, for the quality is so much better, but boy it is a pain to use, well, to clean really. It does simple things very easily (like apples, berries, parsley, greens believe it or not) but throw anything with some stingy texture (like celery, or mango, or pineapple) and it clogs up on you. I love the quality of the juice, but when i am taking it apart, decongesting it and putting it back together to continue my juicing, i am thinking if i would have been better off buying the breville. I cannot say you get more juice from the hurom than from the breville, because i have only used this one. Great juice quality, but you pay for it in time and patience.
I can’t believe the things i can do with it that i couldn’t do in the past with other machines – nut milk, fibrous veggies, you name it, i’ve been juicing it with the hurom. I’ve made smoothie-like juices, my own version of v-8 (without all the sodium), even a blueberry “jelly. ” i love the fact that the mortar and pestle press my fruits and veggies instead of shredding them. I read a lot before buying and this machine was said to deliver more vitamins and more actual juice from a single piece of fruit than other machines. Having seen how it works, i’m certain it does. It also doesn’t take up a lot of space on my counter, which was a total necessity for me – small space and all. And it cleans up easily, which is nice when you are totally lazy, like i am.

I bought the hurom slow juicer after much investigation into it and other juicers capable of juicing wheatgrass, along with fruits and veggies. It has turned out to be a fantastic juicer. I have had it for about 2 weeks now, and i use it every day, sometimes twice a day. I also have a juice man ii centrifugal juicer and while the jmii is faster at accepting material, it doesn’t do as good a job as the hsj. The jmii doesn’t do greens well, if at all. The hsj does a fantastic job at juicing loose material such as sprouts, leafy greens, wheatgrass, etc. Also getting more juice out of the material than the centrifugal type. You will have to spend more time cutting your material (fruits, veggies, etc. ) and i have found that stringing things like celery help to go a long way to keeping the process simple and issue free. Personally, i enjoy the time i spend cutting my veggies and fruits, kinda zen like.
I think if i had a perfect juicer, it would be my maid or butler making me the juice and they’d have to clean it up. That being said, i’ve read all of the reviews here and have learned a lot about this juicer. I’ve juiced carrots and beets and cilantro and beet greens and kale without much of a problem. I knew enough about the juicer after the reviews to cut the fibrous stuff into smaller pieces. I figured out that pouring about three sixteen ounce glasses of water through the juicer with it running when i finished juicing made cleanup easier. The first time i did carrots it took a while to clean the screen but pouring the water through made that much easier.
For the last four years i’ve used a centrifugal juicer and always wanted a masticating juicer, but never bought one because i knew some of them had problems juicing fruits, and also that they’re very slow. So, when i saw the advertisement for this “slow” juicer that was fast and which could juice both leafy greens and fruits equally well, i was very excited. I raptly watched the video demonstrations of its capabilities and ordered it promptly. Some of its purported advantages of extremely dry pulp, more juice, little to no foam, etc. Have fallen far short of the promises made. I notice no increased amount of juice, the foam is absolutely no less than it was with a centrifugal juicer, and unlike my trusty centrifigual juicer the hurom does a lousy job of juicing greens. Just try to juice a leaf of kale and you’ll find it gets all wound up around the screw that is supposed to be chewing it up. I have to stop, put it in reverse, which makes the top come off, then unplug it, stick my hands down around the screw and try to get some of the stuck kale out. And, if you are going to juice a green like kale, do it last or anything you try to juice afterwards will also get stuck around the screw with the kale and not get juiced.
The hurom is an amazing juicer. I am happy with my purchase and there quick delivery process. I am new to juicing and now all i think is what to juice next.
I use this juicer twice a day. I juice wheatgrass, kate, chard, lemons, limes, fennel – everything. The three posts holding the top of the unit on broke off when the chute was blocked with long fibers from fennel. It bound up and also broke the basket. Warning: cut your greens small. They replaced it immediately and the customer service was excellent. But last night i broke the little white gear inside the top that directs the juice to one side the tailings out the other.
I’ve had the hurom slow juicer for a bit over a year, and i absolutely love it. Whether i’m doing greens or soft fruit, i end up with beautiful, tasty juice. Some people complain about the pulp content with this juicer, and i find that if you put produce in slower or run the juice through the juicer a second time, pulp content is significantly lower. Since i have zero counter space in my kitchen, an old-school masticating juicer simply wasn’t an option for me; this one takes up less than a square foot of counter space. If you’re in the market for a high-quality juicer, this is the one to buy.
I don’t regret buying this juicer at all. I’ve owned it for several months and i use it nearly daily, sometimes twice a day, for vegetable and fruit drinks. I’ve made peanut butter with it too and intend to try it with other approved recipes that are outlined in the book. The parts are sturdy and the machine is quiet. This model is refreshingly efficient and wastes very little of the vegetables and fruit i put in. When the inevitable day comes when the machine stops working, i’ll certainly buy another onethe slight and rather personal annoyance concern is that when putting in items like lettuce and kale, the machine squeaks — but this is due to the texture of the thinly-cut lettuce and not anything wrong with the machine. Mixing lettuce with wet or crunchy things like cut apple pieces or carrots gets rid of that squeak immediately.
I’ve had this juicer for over 6 months now (and have been using it about every other day) and i absolutely love it. I actually bought mine used, although it looked like the previous owner probably only used it a few times. The juicer is still going strong, and i’m as happy with it as when it first arrived. I will update this review if i ever have any problems. First, here are a few general comments on juicers based on the research i did when deciding which one to buy:centrifugal juicers (ones that have a blade that spin around at high speed, for instance the jack lalanne or breville fountain) are the cheapest, and they work quite well on hard fruits/vegetables such as apples, carrots, and celery (in fact, i’ve heard they have a better yield than masticating juicers for these types of fruits/vegetables). I previously had the jack lalanne, and it was great for the occasional delicious fresh juice. However, i noticed that i had trouble getting a decent yield for softer fruits such as berries, and also leafy greens such as kale and spinach. Once i got more serious about juicing almost every day, and with more varied ingredients including leafy greens, it seemed i was wasting the money i spent on good quality produce with a poor yield. Masticating juicers such as the hurom operate by crunching/squeezing out the juice at a slow rate per minute.
This is the first juicer i’ve ever owned. I wanted to purchase the omega 8003, but it wasn’t available and the merchant suggested this juicer as it was just coming out and said that it was the newest and best juicer design. I have not been disappointed. I have been juicing most every day since august 2009, so that’s a good 6 months so far. It juices leafy greens and hard vegetables alike with no problems. I do find that with lettuce and spinach i either have to use the tamper to push it down or chase it with a carrot and then the auger grabs the carrot and everything goes through. The item title says it’s a “slow” juicer, but i find that it’s very fast and steady with little foam or noise. I would say that excluding veggie preparation i have 32 oz of juice in less than 3 minutes. I also like that there is a “kill-switch” in that the upper white part that you push the food through has to be locked into place before the machine will turn on. The only problems i have with it is that it gets plugged up when i juice pineapple and i have to cut celery very small because that tends to plug it up too.
A friend of mine bought the hurom hu-100 from amazon and said it was fantastic. She was a bit dramatic in her descriptive love for it and i attributed it to her “juice fast” high. I bought it several weeks ago and i too adore it. Its very easy to use (one of my main concerns) so easy to clean (down to 3 min. ) i haven’t done a juice fast per se but i lost 4. 5 lbs by simply having a healthy juice for breakfast. The extra few minutes it takes to cut my fruit and veggies down is really not a big deal knowing that this will help with the overall life span of my new juicer. I highly recommend this product.
This juicer is pretty good for a cold press and it is refurbished.
I would consider myself somewhat of an “intermediate juicer”. I previously owned a nice breville centrifugal juicer and was disappointed by the extremely wet pulp and minimal juice, the noise, and the complicated parts to clean. The first time i used my new hurom juicer, i was so amazed at how much juice i got and how dry the pulp was. Keep in mind that if you like to do juice fasts like myself that the juice comes out with some pulp still remaining so i would recommend also purchasing some nut milk bags (or something similar) to strain the juice before you drink it. But the juice is fantastic, delicious, and the colors are much more vibrant than anything i made with the centrifugal. Take the advise of all the reviewers and take time to chop up all your fruits and veggies before juicing. It puts a lot less strain on the motor, increases the amount of juice you get, and increases the lifetime of the juicer. I have not had any problem with it. Juicing spinach, apples, cucumbers, carrots, zucchini, etc. Overall, it is a fantastic product and worth the money.
Having lost over 120 pounds eating whole, nutritious foods and exercising six days a week, cross-training with boot camp, hiking, yoga and pilates, kayaking, snowshoeing, zumba, weight lifting, etc. I’m already pretty darn healthy with boundless energy. I eat primarily a paleo diet, with lots of wild fish, grass-fed beef, organic chicken and tons of vegetables, especially greens like kale, broccoli, etc. Snacks include berries, seaweed, greek yogurt, full-fat cheese and nuts. Some very limited whole grains like brown rice and quinoa and legumes like chick peas and black beans. I am a member of the national weight control registry, which tracks people who have lost a lot of weight and kept it off. This juicer has been my best purchase for my health in years. I had tried a juicer once before and found it a pain in the neck. But — as a breast cancer survivor — i recently watched ‘fat, sick and nearly dead’ and read about the gerson method/cancer therapy, which obviously does not work for everyone but seems to work for some. Having researched the issues with speed blending and centrifugal juicers (heat generated creates nutrient loss), i read countless reviews and determined that this hurom processing method is the best, with the possible exception of the norwalk juicer which is huge, difficult to clean, and costs over $2,400.
Easy to understand and put together. Clean up is not bad but does take a little time.
It juices virtually everything perfectly. Peel the rind off a lemon and it juices better than a citrus juicer. It does greens very well, almost all pulps come out dry without so much as a drop to wring out from it, and it looks gorgeous in a glass. Here’s how it works: you feed your produce into the feed chute and it’s processed by a black acrylic auger against a metal sieve. Basically this means the auger is chewing the produce and pressing the resulting pulp and juice against a metal screen with tiny holes. The pulp is pressed through a pulp chute while the juice is filtered through the holes and into the juice chute. Honestly, i really wanted one of the omega nutrition center juicers, but just watching the videos of making carrot juice on those things was painful. You have to jam it into the feed chute to get the carrots to go in. The amazing thing about this juicer is that the auger pulls carrots in with no effort whatsoever from the user.
I did my research because i’m starting a new journey. I haven’t used my juicer as much as i am slowly and cautiously making food changes in my day to day life. However i love this juicer and i feel better each time i use it and i am looking forward to experimenting with new recipes which calls for the special talents of this machine.
The juicer is fast as described. The only thing i have a problem with is that my apple juice comes out like apple sauce. Maybe i’m doing something wrong?.The juice seems to be pretty thick to me. ***update***ok, i contacted the hurom company directly about my ‘apple sauce’ results. They suggested i use hard apples like fuji, granny and honeycrisp etc. I went out and got some fuji and then tried them in my hurom juicer. I am so glad because i really like fresh apple, carrot and celery.
My daughter (age 24) got one of these and told me about it. I decided to buy one myself, so that when she came home for thanksgiving we could make juice together with it. Wow, what a great thingi love how i can make juice from any organic fruits or vegetables. You can make juice, or you can use the pulp and make things like carrot bread, meatloaf, soy milk, so cooland fun to use, no kidding. I’ve been making all sorts of things this week, and to think how healthy it all is. I made a juice using stringbeans, ginger and apple (i think apple), a citrus blast using all kinds of oranges, meatloaf, two different dips, a couple different green smoothies, whatever you have hanging around can be ‘cold pressed’ to extract the goodness from it, and down the hatch.
