recommended! Review by Yoshihiro

This juicer is awesome! Compared to others that I've used, it is really quiet —and the operation is silky smooth. Its a few more bucks than the typical, but I see it as an investment in my family's health. It is well-engineered. This is one of the best purchases I have made. Highly recommend it!!!!

grateful for the recipes Review by Ben
Rating
Comes with a great recipe book! I decided to spend this kind of money for my health, but it has been entirely worth the money. The structure appears to be very solid. Some pulp is in juice but I am ok with that. So far so good!

My review, a few days in Review by Jessica
Rating
Pros:
-----
1. Very compact: It takes less counter/table space than a small plate. Most of the electrics (except the L'Equip mini and the Waring JEX 328) are major space hogs.

2. Very efficient: Masticating juicers extract more juice than the centrifugal models. Perhaps more importantly, they do a better job of crushing tough plant cell walls and releasing enzymes - think minced garlic versus chopped garlic. (Whether or how much added health benefits this results in, depends on what you juice. It's hard to get good info on this, but plant enzymes typically help in breakdown and better absorption of nutrients.)

3. Cheap. If you aren't sure whether you'll stick to it, this one's worth a try.

4. Easy to clean

Cons:
-----
1. The hopper's a bit small, which means you'll be reloading frequently. This seems to be the trouble with masticating juicers in general (including the electrics), but the Z-star manual juicer has a somewhat bigger hopper.

As I haven't used this long enough, I can't say how durable it is, though it seems very tough and well-made. (The auger tip and the surface it crushes against are both stainless steel, and all the rest is polycarbonate.)

Juicing effort:
Turning the handle: Effortless for leafy veggies, and very little effort for carrots and firm veggies, provided you cut them into smaller pieces first. Don't expect to be able to throw a whole carrot or radish in. The reviewer that claims that you need to be a weightlifter to turn this thing was funny, but wildly off the mark.

When juicing cabbage, drizzle a little bit of olive oil over the chopped cabbage - this completely eliminates the groaning (which happens due to friction between the rubbery leaves and the juicer body).

Cleaning: better than the electrics in this department because of fewer parts and simpler design. Cleanup is a major part of juicing effort, so I count this as a pro.

Cutting: For firm veggies, you'll have to cut them into smaller parts (no perfect julienne required; just a quick, sloppy chop would do.) Even so, this adds a little bit to the effort, so if you primarily want to juice firm veggies, you should look at an electric.

Setup: Very easy (simpler design).

Better than the Breville Review by Isaac
Rating
This is amazing! Huge improvement over my Breville (which was expensive, too.) I did a research for hours before purchasing it. The more I read about juicing, the more I realized that I should get this type of juicer if I wanted to enjoy better juice. Very quiet and smooth. This juicer has BPA free components. If you are serious about making your own fruit and vegetable juices, this is the way to go.

prefer lower speed Review by Jackson
Rating
I have been juicing a lot since receiving this juicer 3 weeks ago. I juiced apple, carrots, ginger, watermelon and even wheatgrass and beets. It's great! This is my second juicer. I originally had a Breville, which is a good juicer too. Honestly, this new low-speed masticating type juicer works a lot better than the centrifugal type. Highly recommend it.

Good quality masticator Review by J.R.
Rating
Actually I needed an masticating juicer for wheatgrass. After I did a lot of research, I realized this vertical masticating juicer is good for both fruits and leafy greens. Actually a horizontal type is better than a vertical type if you juice only wheatgrass. However, a vertical is better if you want to juice fruits as well as wheatgrass so I decided to buy this juicer. I am so happy with this purchase. Great for grape juice too! Love it.

Juice everything! Review by Eric
Rating
I saw a demonstration at an electronics store near my work. They were making juice with carrots (but I don't like carrots so I didn't taste the juice). I saw their demonstration again on my next visit. They were using grapes and I tried the small taste testers, and WOW was it delicious. Of course, I assumed they were using good quality grapes. However, I was impressed with the juice and juicer. So, I started to research into the Kuvings Silent Juicer. I found it operates by low-speed, which can preserve nutrition value more and can prevent juicer from being loud. There are a few similar types of juicers in the market, so I was a little indecisive, but I decided to get this juicer. It was a bit expensive for me, but now I cant be happier. It is really fun to make juice with Grapes, Oranges, Apples, Pears, etc. These days, I am adding Carrots, Cucumber, Kale, Celery which I don't like in my regular recipes. Even though I don't like carrots and leafy-greens, I found I have no problem with it in mixed juice. That's the reason why we make juice, right? I love this juicer so much! It makes me drink juice! I feel even healthier when I add leafy-greens more to my juice.

One of the better juicers ... Review by Paquita
Rating
I received my Kuvings Silent Juicer (KSJ) a few weeks ago and have been using it everyday since then. I am a seasoned juicer, and before I made juice 2-3 times a day with my Omega 8004, which is also a slow speed masticating juicer and I have tried a friend's Omega VRT330 which is an over-marketed juicer from the factory that also makes the Hurom Juicer. Its great that similar technology to the commercial juice presses are finally available for home (commercial juice press operate as slow as 1 RPM, these work at about 80RPM - both A LOT slower than tradition home centrifugal juicers at over 10K RPM resulting in a better juice that doesn't quickly settle separated from being spun at high-speed).

The horizontal type, like my 8004, is better for greens, a little easier to clean as it has less parts/surface area, and can make pasta, purees, nut butter, etc but its significantly slower than my KSJ due to the smaller feed chute, auger, etc. If you want to make lots of juice, juice mixtures, or like to juice fruit the KSJ is certainly worth the extra money over a horizontal type and a no-brainer over the older, more expensive Hurom/Omega design. I was using my horizontal machine 2-3 times/day for mixed juices - with the Silent Juicer I can make the same amount in one juicing but a strainer is required, unlike the horizontal machine which doesn't have enough pulp to make a difference to warrant a strainer. Some people think both horizontal and vertical machines need to be strained and my 8004 actually came with a strainer for the juice catch cup - you'll have to make the call but I favor strained juice with vertical auger juicers - its worth the extra step for the results!
