Slow and steady: the Hurom Slow Juicer

We’ve tried different juicers from some well-known brands over the years; we’re always somewhat disappointed with the small amount and poor quality of juice that the cheaper juicers are capable of extracting.

A ‘slow’ juicer is designed to minimise the heat and oxygen created during the juicing process, meaning maximum living nutrients are retained and you are getting a juice with more antioxidants, nutrients and vitamins, better flavour and freshness, and much less of the separation that occurs in the juice from conventional, high-speed juicing.

Because this design originates from commercial applications, it’s also capable of getting a lot more yield out of fruits and vegetables than the cheaper juicers most people are familiar with.

Up until now, we’ve been unable to justify investing in a commercial-grade juicer for our own use – the high-duty ones can range into the thousands of dollars!  The good news however, is that the Hurom Slow Juicer has been built from the ground up to use the same commercial-style juicing mechanism, but for domestic applications (think 5-10 litres a week instead of 50 to 100) – resulting in a product that is barely more expensive than most of the traditional, inferior big-brand juicers.

The Hurom is also fantastically easy to clean  – unlike most traditional juicers which require the kind of time-consuming clean-up – a huge disincentive to make fresh juices on a daily basis.

We’re pleased to announce availability of the Hurom starting in October.  See our product page for the Hurom Slow Juicer for more detailed information and pricing.

  1. Hi,
    I am a young doctor who values time and quality. I brought a Hurom 300 slow juicer last week from ECHOLife and I am very happy with my product and the service from ECHO life. I rang the Echolife 1300 number to find out more information about the juicer, and had a very friendly, knowledgeable and helpful lady called Jude. I ordered the juicer late on a Monday and it had arrived by the Friday, with a personalised letter about the product and with contact details if I had any problems.

    The juicer is just as I hoped, it is very easy to set up, very quiet and the vertical design makes juicing easy as the juicer takes up the pieces of fruit/vege without need for pushing it in. The juicer makes the pulp quite dry, and the quality of the juice is great – it lasts for hours in the fridge without separtion of particles or change in colour. So far I have tried a range of fruits and vegetables including carrot, beetroot and cucumber with no troubles. The juicer is also very easy to clean and comes with a large ‘toothbrush’ to clean the filter with.

    Overall I am very impressed with the product and the echolife company, so much so, that I am actually bothering to review an online product .

    Karen.

  2. I’ve just bought a ‘Juicepresso’ which is the model after this one I think (it’s black but basically the same), and it is brilliant! The juice looks and tastes so much better with these juicers than with centrifugal juicers. It is well worth the money especially if you are ill and need all the digestive help and enzymes you can get!

  3. I’m really keen on getting one of the cold press juicers after trying my sister’s when we visited for christmas. Like Jodi above I’ve been looking at the Juicepresso after finding this video about it:

    It looks pretty good, but does anyone have any experience with the Juicepresso vs the Hurom? I read somewhere that they are even made by the same factory. Is that true?

  4. Sorry for the late reply Leanne, your comment was unlovingly and automatically classified as Spam! Many of the slow juicers we sell are manufactured in South Korea – but to my knowledge the Hurom and Juicepresso are brands held by two different companies (Hurom and Coway) which don’t share the same facilities. It is possible though that both juicers are made with some components that are sourced from the same manufacturer.

    Both Hurom and Juicepresso are reliable juicers and it may come down to personal preference (including colour!). You can read customer reviews for the Hurom 400 here, and for the Juicepresso here. And please don’t hesitate to give us a call if we can be of any help!
