Very good product
All ok, very good juicer. The only bad thing is that there is not a filter to make a ice cream. Why???
The Hurom Juicer model HU700 Premium also known as the HH-DBG06 in Silver, is part of the latest generation of Hurom model’s released in Europe for summer 2013. This summer Hurom have introduced two HU 600 models and one HU 700 model. All of these juicers feature the same updated front end juicing parts but with slight variations to the body design and materials used in the finish. The Hurom 700 includes both a fine juicing screen for juicing all hard fruits, vegetables and leafy greens and also a coarse juicing screen for juicing softer fruits and vegetables.
Hurom Juicers are a firm favourite with the team here in Juicers.ie. From the original Hurom HU 100 up to the recently available HU 400/500 we have seen subtle improvements in functionality, performance and strength of parts. With the new HU 600 & HU 700 ranges Hurom have introduced a whole host of new features and improvements most notability –
**Please note the HU 700 model sold in Ireland/UK does not feature the smoothie level as per this video
Renowned for their ease of use, speed of juicing and quality build the new Hurom 700 is ideal for those looking for a time saving, easy to use masticating juicer. No compromise has been made with this new generation of Hurom juicers, the HU 700 will quite simply be the pride of your kitchen and last juicer you will ever buy!
Traditional slow speed horizontal masticating juicers have a much smaller surface area on the juicing strainer which somewhat restricts the juice extraction process. Hurom changed that by inventing the vertical juicer and moving the juicing mechanism to the top of the juice extractor and using a strainer with a larger surface area which results in the juice passing through much quicker after it has been juiced. While still operating at 70-80 RPM’s like traditional horizontal masticating juicer Hurom juicers can produce a litre of juice in about half the time it takes in traditional horizontal machines.
In the past customers who have been frustrated by the slow speed of horizontal masticating juicers have opted for centrifugal juicers however high speed juicers oxidise the juice quickly resulting in poorer nutritional value, very little enzymes and no storage value, however with the new Hurom juicer HU-700, you get the benefit of much faster processing times with juice that can be stored for 48 hours with minimal loss of nutrients.
Another benefit to having the juicing mechanism at the top of the juicer means the produce you feed in pretty much self-feeds as the squeezing screw draws the produce in, eliminating the need to use the food pusher with anything but leafy greens. The squeezing screw and juice strainer are made from GE-Ultem material which is food safe, BPA Free and eight times stronger than the normal material used on juicers – we rarely if ever see any breakage in Hurom juicer parts!
The unique silicone wiper-blade system rotates in between the juice bowl and juicing strainer effectively cleaning the inside of excess pulp and prevent the juicer from blocking up during use, this part has been improved in the new HU 600 and HU 700 to prevent less pulp entering the juice and less cleaning
The addition of a silicone non drip juice valve and cap on the juice outlet offers several advantages over previous models without this feature. As well as eliminating drips onto the work surface, this allows the juice bowl to be filled with water at the end of a juicing session so that the silicone wiper blades can do more of the cleaning and you do less! The new larger 500ml juice bowl also has a measurement scale that allows juice to be accurately gauged and then you simply open the valve to dispense the juice.
Dr Max Gerson (of the world famous Gerson Institute - http://www.gerson.org) recommend that pulp and juice should be mixed before pressing thereby effectively capturing more nutrients from the pulp. Using the new non drip juice valve or cap the pulp and juice are in contact with each other for longer allowing the juice has a greater opportunity to flush 'sticky' nutrients from the cell membranes and fibres (pulp) of the fruit and vegetables being cold-pressed. With the Hurom HU 600 and HU 700 models the juice valve means you can have up to a half litre of juice that is potentially rinsing extra nutrients from the pulp as it is being ground up by the BPA free GE Ultem auger, or juicing screw. This mixing feature as the wiper blades stir the juice means with mixed ingredients your juice cocktail is already perfectly blended when you dispense it through the non-drip juice valve, with less foam or froth. This method has normally only been associated with high-priced twin gear juicers like the Greenstar or Angel juicers and the Norwalk press.
Tests from the Michelson Laboratories Inc. and the Korean Food Research Institute confirm that this juicer extracts: 42.7% more Vitamin C, 60.7% more Vitamin A when compared to traditional juicers. This research was certified by the FDA and the USDA.
For most of us cleaning our juicer is the least favourite part of the process, fortunately the Hurom HU 700 and HU 600 are a doddle to clean! Simply pour water through the machine whilst it is running as normal and close the juice cap. The water will flush out the remaining pulp and juice. There are two cleaning brushes provided with the Hurom juicer HU-700 model and one of the brushes has a handy detachable smaller brush to get at hard to reach areas.
The Hurom HU 700 is excellent at juicing harder vegetables and fruits and performs much better on softer produce like berries, pineapple and oranges compared to horizontal juicers. If you plan on juicing mainly leafy greens such as wheatgrass, spinach, kale and chard then a horizontal juicer such as the Samson or Omega would be a better choice, however if you are looking for am good all rounder then its hard to beat the Hurom HU 700 or HU 600.
Whilst the vertical juicers are capable of juicing fruits, soft fruits, vegetables, leafy greens and wheatgrass - we consider them to be more of an all-round juice extractor. They perform much better with softer produce like berries, pineapple and oranges which the horizontal machines generally struggle with but if you mainly want to juice wheatgrass and leafy greens - then the horizontal masticating juicers do give better results. So if you are looking for a juicer to do a bit of everything very well, then you can't go wrong with a Hurom slow juicer.
Having the ability to make your own Soy, Almond, Rice or Oat milk can help you save money and also cater to different family members dietary needs. Creating your own style can be done very quickly with the Hurom 700 and this can be stored or made and used freshly each day.
