If your friends in social media (or in real life) are anything like mine, you must have heard the buzz in town. Juicing is the new cool. You may also have come across the term ‘masticating,’ and may be wondering what it is about.
A masticating juicer like the one we will review below extracts all juice from fruits and vegetables using a powerful yet low-paced motor that ensures no heat-up, therefore retaining the nutritional value of your ingredients. The resulting juice also stays fresh for at least 72 hours, thanks to the lack of oxidation.
This review will tell you all there is to know about the Flexzion Cold Press Juicer.
Flexzion Cold Press Juicer Overview
This juicer can handle any fruit or vegetable (hard or soft). It will even juice your wheatgrass effectively (which is tricky with most juicers). Its motor power is just right to extract the juice that you need out of fruits and vegetables, but slow enough to ensure minimal or no oxidation at all hence effectively producing high-quality juice.
It comes with a manual for operation and a recipe book with 10 nutritional juices to revamp your health.
Features and Benefits
This kitchen gadget measures 15 x 13 x 13 inches and weighs 16.9 pounds to keep it stable when you juice. It has a wide 3-inch chute that eliminates the chopping process (you can fit whole oranges and apples). The 150-watt motor, which rotates at 65 RPMs, is slow enough to prevent heating and oxidation when juicing, but powerful enough to crush the fruits and vegetables to give out dry pulp that is collected in the large pulp tank.
The capacity of the pulp reservoir allows you to keep juicing without having to stop and empty it. It also comes with a one-liter pitcher to collect the juice and twos trainers to keep the juice free of fibrous pulp. The parts make for an easy rinse.
This Juicer is Suitable for
This juicer is ideal for anyone who loves juicing. Green juice lovers will especially find it useful for the fact that its low speed allows it to yield the most out of kales and spinach. It also does an excellent job with wheatgrass.
If you like giving a glass of fresh chilled juice all day through, you will like the fact that the juice stays fresh 72 hours after making. Add that to the fact that assembly and disassembly are a complicated process.
The Flexzion Cold Press Juicer is not dishwasher friendly. The parts are detachable, but there is no talk of them being safe for the dishwasher. They are an easy rinse though as long as you clean them immediately after juicing.
Grasses (wheatgrass and barley grass) are some of the tightest to juice given their nature. It is not so much the process as is the yield. This juicer is on the money because it effectively reduces your grasses into juice with minimal waste. Is it worth the cost? Yes, its high-yielding prowess makes it a worthy investment. You can get it on Amazon.
