Champion Commercial Juicer - Multiple Colors!
- Product Review (submitted on September 20, 2011):
It probably takes twice as long to juice an orange in a Champion as it would in a Breville—but it's not minutes here, it's seconds. And because it juices by mastication, the final product probably has a higher nutrient content (via cell wall destruction) than a centrifuge-based juicer.
All components slip together easily and logically; an attachable funnel comes with the machine for feeding berries and nuts.
It's a heavy machine, due to the GE-manufactured 1/3 hp motor. But that's also the final reason why I chose it. As an energy tech analyst, I know that GE motors last forever in small appliances, and the Champion is manufactured in California.
Sometimes I juice large quantities of greens and other fruit and veggies on the weekends, and freeze them for breakfast throughout the week. I do have to clean out the armature for every, oh, four cups of juice I make. But that takes less than a minute and I'm up and running again. I honestly don't find cleaning to be an issue. If I'm juicing large quantities of greens (collards, kale, parsley) the fine fibrous material eventually clogs the armature and causes the motor to warm up. But by the time I've cleaned and reassembled (seriously, less than a minute) it's cool again.
