Hurom Slow Juicer - Upright Masticating Juicer - Latest Model (White, Black and Silver)
- Product Review (submitted on September 17, 2011):
I have been juicing for years, always in search for the ultimate juicer. Anyone who juices a lot looks for one that is easy to clean. I thought the Hurom offered some innovation, self-cleaning and good for hard and soft stuff. It is easy to put together but self cleaning it is not. A key component is a stopper that is very easy to lose and is not covered in the warranty. I am going on my third and shipping takes 3 weeks. It has a problem with hard foods like carrots and beets backing up the feeder tube. Soft fruits were poor as well and I was not impressed when it comes to wheatgrass. While the slow speed motor has lots of power, the basket … Within 2 months the plastic starts to form hairline fractures. This diminishes the effectiveness of the unit. With 4 months things start to get worse and in 6 months it becomes dangerous and it might explode on you as it did me. The quality of the juice is sometimes good however it clogs up easily. I was hoping not to have two juicers one for greens and one for carrots and alike, like my Breville (good juicer almost industrial grade) and the Hurom to do all my juicing. Not a deal from my point of view. Replacement parts are frustrating because you will need one part within a week if you are not careful clean it. I have documented the complaints above, sending photos and keeping track of emails. While the Operations Manager is a very nice guy and has sent me several replacement baskets and stoppers. his corporate bosses are not. DO NOT BUY THIS UNIT ... you will need another within the year not worth $350 I paid for it.
