The Hurom HU-100 Slow Juicer: This juicer boasts a revolutionary new design that will turn other juicers on the market up side down! The Hurom Slow juicer takes the single auger design made popular first by Samson, Solo Star and Omega Juicers, and takes the concept one step further.
The Hurom Slow Juicer will juice fruits, vegetables, soy and even wheatgrass, slowly and efficiently. More efficiently than other single auger style juicers.
Maximize the nutritional and taste benefits of juiced fruits, vegetables, and grasses with the dual-stage extraction power of the Hurom HU-100 Slow Juicer. Based on the powerful auger juicer style, this super-efficient unit uses a Low Speed Technology System to crush then press foods for increased yield with minimum waste.
The extracted juice is smooth and consistent, loaded with antioxidants and vitamins, and free of foam, froth, or separation.
Quiet and compact, the juicer can easily be left on a kitchen counter so it’s ready to go at any time. It also self-cleans with water between produce items for convenient versatility.
The juicer comes one screen for both fine and course items, pulp extraction plugs, a self-cleaning screen holder, two 50-ounce juicing cups, a tamper, a brush, and an instruction manual. It measures approximately 9-3/4 inches long by 6-3/4 inches wide by 15-3/4 inches high; ten-year warranty.
And the Hurom HU-100 comes with a cook book, too.
Hurom HU-100 Slow Juicer Features:
- Dual Stage Juicing – juice is extracted through the first crushing stage and before the pulp is ejected, it is then squeezed during the second pressing stage; resulting in more juice, and extremely dry pulp.
- Higher yields – in-house testing found the Hurom Slow Juicer yielded 50% more juice than a centrifuge juicer in 50% of the time.
- Economical – Get the greatest amount of juice from the least amount of fruits.
- Peels and skins can be also used in various pastries, jams, soups, etc.
- Better Juice, Healthier Juice – Enjoy more antioxidants, better flavor and superior freshness of your juice.
- No frothing or foaming, and none of the separation that occurs with other juicers.
- Self Cleaning – Simply pour water through to self clean the juicer when changing to another fruit, vegetable or leafy green.
- Save time!
- Small Footprint – all of the performance of a masticating single auger juicer, but with less space requirements than most centrifuge-style juicers.
- Vegetable Juice – The Hurom juicer excels at making juice out of your favorite leafy greens and wheatgrass.
- Silence – The Hurom juicer minimizes the noise by squeezing slowly rather than grinding at high speed like centrifugal juicers.
- The 8x harder auger is manufactured out of GE Ultem material. Includes fine and coarse dual stage screens, pulp extraction plugs, self-cleaning screen holder, two 50 oz. juicing cups, tamper, brush, and instruction manual.
Reviews on the Hurom HU-100 are pretty good. Here are some of them:
5.0 out of 5 stars: Fun and Easy Juicer, Review by Damico
Very impressed with this juicer straight out the box! Assembly, operation and even cleanup was a snap. Really worth the price. I was very surprised when I juiced some beets and the inside parts didn’t get as stained as I thought it would. Only a little on the inside strainer part.
The Hurom Slow Juicer really pulls out every ounce of juice possible from everything I’ve juiced. Leftover pulp comes out stone dry.
I think the only real drawback to this juicer is the one-year warranty only on the strainer parts and ten-years on the base motor. You’re gonna want to juice everything after you see how easy it is. And from the way I’ve been juicing everyday, I’m sure one year warranty isn’t enough.
4.0 out of 5 stars: Almost perfect juicer. Review by E. Tam
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. It’s absolutely amazing. 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. One thing to note though, is that you need to let it do its own work. If you DO try pushing it in, it locks up the auger. On softer produce like leafy greens and fruits, it has no problem with jamming stuff in. It may not be as fast as a centrifugal juicer, but it’s at least twice as fast, and a QUARTER of the work that goes into jamming them into the Omega nutrition center.
So far I have juiced the following without any problems:
- Carrots – SHOULD BE PEELED. Skins are extremely bitter!
- Kale – surprisingly mild flavor even in its raw state
- Apple – must be a firm fleshed apple like Fujis, Galas or Granny Smiths
- Orange – I will NEVER drink “fresh squeezed” carton juices ever again.
- Grapes (didn’t expect this one to come out as dry as it did–wow!)
As for citrus, be sure to peel the rind off first otherwise you’ll be left with very bitter juice which contains natural though indigestible oils. Note that certain pulpy fruits like grapes and berries will have somewhat wet pulp, but it can be put through the juicer again and the auger will squeeze even more juice out of it! The great thing about this juicer is if you want to make a different juice without mixing the flavors, you can run 2-3 cups of water through the machine and you’ll be ready to juice your next batch of fruits and/or vegetables. So if Sally wants carrot but Brian wants apple and neither wants to taint their juice with the other’s juice, you don’t have to disassemble the whole thing to avoid doing so.
Green juicers should already know this, but if you’re new, this is how you get through several batches without having to wash it over and over: alternate produce! This actually goes for fruit as well, but it’s imperative that you alternate with greens. Start with some leafy greens, then follow this with 1/2 of a cucumber–which actually doubles as a plunger so you can just use that cucumber half to push those leaves in. If you want to do straight kale, you may have to open the juicer, remove the auger and pull some of the fibers out of the base–which won’t be a problem if you mix your greens. Keep in mind I’ve never had to do this as I’ve never had any lock-ups while juicing–most likely because I’ve always alternated produce.
Speaking of cleaning–virtually painless. Just separate the removable parts from the base whole and put it in the sink. Run hot water through the top and rinse it off (with soapy water if you desire), then remove the top and rinse the bottom of the feed chute plate. Next rinse your auger, and if you juiced something fibrous, run the chisel part of the included cleaning brush through the indented ring where it may have collected. This takes maybe 5 seconds. Next, rinse and scrub the screen. This is a little more difficult/time consuming. I don’t actually like using the included brush for this. I use a non-stick safe scouring pad to wipe it gently twice and usually all the pulp stuck in the holes are gone. The clear plastic base is easy to clean; pull the attached silicone plug out and clear out the pulp chute with a spray of water and rinse the rest out and you’re done. Cleaning takes 3-5 minutes depending on what you juiced. Quick tip for removing carrot stains: use a towel with a couple drops of vegetable oil on it and the stains wipe right off.
The main things that attracted me to this juicer that it’s able to process almonds for a very easy almond milk. Just soak 1 cup of almonds overnight and the next morning put it through the juicer with 3 cups of water and you’ve got a very healthy and tasty almond milk which goes phenomenally well with cereal. I’ve tried blanching the almonds and removing the skin first but it does not make a big difference. Using raw almonds does result in a cleaner fresher tasting almond milk. It does do soymilk as well, but I would recommend doing blending it instead as processing the soymilk (which is neccessary) over the stove is better done with the pulverized soybeans in the pot as it wrings more flavor than juicing them would. Either way, filtering with a strainer or nut milk bag is necessary. I usually follow this immediately with some juicing so I don’t have to wash it twice.
Edit: Three months and still going strong! Still no jam ups whatsoever. I still haven’t run into any wet pulp (bone dry pulps here, with oranges I always run the pulp through 1-2 times). This thing has handled an entire 6 cup pitchers worth of juice of oranges/pineapple, and all it spits out is a handful or so of totally dry pulp. I really can’t squeeze a single drop out of it! Completely amazing.
