Green-Star Juicer - Twin Gear MultiPurpose (Models GS1000, GS2000 and GS3000)
- Product Review (submitted on November 8, 2011):
The Green Star has a "close-case-crush-press" system, which crushes your food between two counter-rotating steel gears. You're left with juice that zings, and hasn't been oxidized.
It does all right with flaccid, stringy, leafy foods like parsley and cilantro. But if there's any firmness to them--anything from cucumbers to celery to lemons--the juicer needs those chopped up. So before using the juicer I do a lot of prep.
The clean-up is manageable. There are about seven parts that disassemble easily. You don't need to reach into the crevices in the main unit. All the parts clean easily except one small screen, which needs some serious scrubbing. The brush supplied with the juicer helps.
I'm sure there are faster models out there. But I'm health-conscious too, and the twin gear system seems to leave a small "oxygen footprint."
