    Excellent Home Juice Extractor

    I chose the Philips Avance Collection Masticating Juice Extractor as my two sons go through an incredible amount of store bought juice. While other reviews I'd read online appear to suggest that this juice extractor doesn't get as much juice as the reviewer expected, I'ven't found this to be much of an issue. It really depends on the type of fruit you place into the extractor. The juicer comes with a really helpful recipe book and its a lot of fun trying out the recipes in the book but I've also had a lot of fun just making up our own recipes. Simple apple juice was amazing, it tasted like the apple cider we get at apple orchards in the holidays near where we live and yet we can make it at home. Assembling the juicer is easy, just follow the simple steps outlined in the manual and cleaning it's also exceptionally easy. All the removable parts can be placed into the dish washer or washed by hand. Once you have put the juicer together a few times there is no need to keep the instructions nearby, it's easy to put together again. Would definitely recommend this to any family, especially with kids that go through the store bought juice as quickly as ours.

    This juicer is not only super easy to use, but it is also super easy to clean and reassemble. Two things stood out to me on this unit. It's very quiet while extracting juice, and it has a pretty small footprint for what it does. It's nice that it is black, and it really does do a fantastic job of juicing just about anything you can think of.

    The Phillips Masticating Juicer was easy to clean, easy to set up and easy to use. We made the "Farmers Market Juice" with a handful of strawberries, 1 apple, 1 cucumber, and 2 carrots... it tastes great! It made 20oz of juice. Can't wait to try it on our lemons once they are ripe for homemade lemonade. Perfect for those wanting to add veggies or fruit to their diet. Much better than store bought juices with added ingredients.

    This juicer is a wonderful product. At first, all the parts seem a bit much to clean every time, but it really doesn't take long at all. The unit isn't messy at all. The juice produced is nicely strained and there's hardly any pulp which I really like since I'm not a fan of pulp. There's a juice cup and storage lid so you can make quite a bit of juice at a time. I look forward to exploring and creating different combinations of healthy fruit and veggie juices.

    The Philips Avance Collection Masticating Juice Extractor is just amazing, simple as that. I received it at 3pm and by 330pm, I had my first glass of juice. Assembly is quick and painless, I do recommend giving the parts a quick was before use though. I grabbed some green apples right away and cut them into slices and cubes to test which way was better. Well, it doesn't matter, this thing just eats fruit up like nothing, peels and all. I then tried oranges, pears, kale, and zucchini, all went through without any issues. The juice is pulp free and my kids are in love, I have not seen my kids drink that much juice in a long time. The pulp that is left over is almost dry, the Phillips juicer does a great job getting as much juice out as possible saving you money. Pros: Quiet Fast Assembly Easy to clean Little waste Compact design Looks good Great quality juice No more pre bottled stuff for my kids Fast juicing Cons: None! I highly recommend this juicer, I am hooked on this, never thought I would be.

    Wish I got a juicer long ago. This is a great little device to make fresh juice. So far I've done only Apple in the juicer, but wow the difference between the juice from this and even the fancy organic stuff I get is night and day. The Juice from this is like sticking a straw into the apple and drinking straight from apple. Overall this is a fairly easy device to use and juice with a few caveats that I don't think impede the use of this wonderful device. I like it for one because of it's small footprint. I don't have a lot of space and this was able to fit without any fuss. So a win, but because of the size the fruit/nuts need to be cut into fairly smallish pieces to fit the tube to be juiced. Not a bad thing, just a bit fussy. The other fussy part is there is no indicator light I saw to show that the catch for the pulp is properly seated. Took me playing with it a few times to make sure it was seated correctly for the juicer to turn on. A little LED would have been a nice touch. But no big deal. Just fiddly and totally worth it for fresh 100% juice. A glorious thing. In theory fresh almond milk too. But I'ven't tried that yet. Otherwise I like it. Comes apart easy and so simple to clean and store I'm impressed and enjoying this. If you want juice this is totally device for you.

    Overall it could have been a better juice extractor. However, there are certain things makes it hard to give it full rating. So many small pieces in the augur mechanism that makes very difficult to clean the unit after each use. You have to really cut fruits and veggies into smaller than medium pieces. All those extra efforts of cutting and then hard to clean parts makes me think twice before I use it again. I like carrot juice a lot and "Avance" made me disappointed - it doesn't even extract 50% of juice from carrot. All other veggies and fruits I have tried so far get at least 80% of juice out of it. Overall, I am not fully impressed with Philips - Avance Collection Masticating Juice Extractor.

    Having never owned or operated a juicer, I wasn't entirely sure I would be able to make good use of it or be confident in cleaning it after use. I am pleasantly surprised and happy to announce that this little device juiced carrots just as easily as cucumbers and cherries, and was SO easy to clean for the next juice. The instructions included are simple to read and understand.

    A Good Mastigating Juicer

    Posted

    • Tech Insider NetworkTech Insider Network
    • My Best Buy® Elite Plus Member

    1. packaging and assembly firstly the packaging, it is slim and does not make it feel like it is a full sized juicer. that's a good thing the instructions are very straightforward, I just looked at the pictures to assemble it and did not even have to read the instructions. it comes with 2 bins, on for collecting the juice and the other for pulp. 2. Making the Juice. I do have a jack lalanne juicer which I use regularly before getting this, my son loves fresh juices (Oranges). So I have to say that I am comparing a centrifugal juicer vs a masticating juicer. Now, for those who do not know what a centrifugal juicer is that these types of juicer operate at very high speed, they crush the produce and push them against a porous wall where the juice the flow through the pores and the remains of the fruit is collected in a containter. Masticating juicer push the fruit through a crusher and then the juice is separated from the fruit and flows into a container. they operate at low speed and they also have a small opening vs a larger opening on the centrifugal juicer. Now using the Philips Avance Juicer, I tried first with apples and I have to say that I got a lot more juice as compare to the jack lallanee juicer so I have to believe that mastication is not just a gimmick Next I tried some carrots, I did have to put in a little more pressure as compare to the jack lallane juicer but again the quantity of the juice was pretty good. 3. Pros and Cons Pros - - more nutrients are retained and more juice extracted - tastes better much better as compared to the regular centrifugal juice - you can store the juice longer - cleaning is easier, much better than the centrifugal juicer cons - - the feeding tube is small as compared to centrifugal juicer

    So far really good. We use a couple times per day with no issues. Clean up appears difficult at first, but the unit comes apart easily and is easy to rinse and wash. Very compact, so takes very less space in the drying rack. Extracts excellent fresh juice from basic fruits. No issues on carrots, potatoes, or other hard type of vegetables. It blows through fruit, although I don't think we've tried banana or mango yet. Very easy for first time setup and use. Super light weight and easy to move from one place to another. Forward button helps in extracting the final juice left over in the machine. The pulp gets accumulated very neatly in the collector. The juice collector's lid is very helpful for pouring the juice into cups or glasses. Overall, an excellent product for the juice lovers. I don't find anything negative in the product so far. Would definitely recommend this to my friends who are willing to pay a little extra for fresh juice.

    THIS IS A FUN TO USE JUICER

    Posted

    The Good Things About This Philips Avance Masticating Juicer The bottom of this Philips juicer has 6 rubber pads to help it sit secure. All of the components of this appliance are made of quality materials, mainly heavy plastics which will last quite a while. The spinning center shaft that crushes the fruits and vegetables is made really well, and the smallest section which does most of the crushing, is made of a heavy duty stainless steel. On the top of this juicer is two buttons, one is the power button which turns the juicer on and off, and the other button reverses the direction of the motor, of which the reverse setting is a way of pre-rinsing the unit and allowing the final amount of juices to flow through. This appliance has a really nice heavy duty latch which holds the masticating shaft assembly into place. The type of plastic which the pulp and juice containers are made out of, is the SANS type of plastic, of which SANS plastic shows better dishwasher wear resistance compared to polycarbonate, which is due to the fact that SANS plastic is more resistant to chemicals in the dishwashing detergent. I tested this juicer the first time on a 5 pound bag of carrots, and it has plenty of power to easily crush the hard fibers of carrots into juice, of which it is best to be patient when juicing harder vegetables, and avoid pressing too hard downward on the appliance. A gentle and slow downward press is best to accomplish juicing carrots which avoids damaging the appliance by applying too much force. This Philips juicer is designed to be thinner than most juicers made by other manufacturers, and this is really nice for kitchens that are limited in countertop space. This Philips juicer has quite a bit of weight to it, which means it has a heavy duty motor on the inside. The process of cleaning the juicer is fairly simply, as the top section can be disassembled and all of the pieces can easily be rinsed clean with water. The anti drip spout is a nice feature, as it does prevent dribbling on the countertop when the juice holding container is not in place. Most juicers do not have an anti drip spout. Other Details About This Philips Avance Masticating Juicer One of the only thing about this appliance which could have been designed better, is that there is a gap that is below the spinning shaft and above the pulp container, this empty space causes the upper section to flex when pressing downward on fruits or vegetables that are being juiced. I added a rectangular shaped plastic spacer to fill this gap, this prevents this flexing of the top section downward. See one of my attached images which shows the plastic spacer that I added. It is always kind of nice when expensive appliance also have a nicer than average power cord to match, which I prefer a nice round power cord. The power cord on this appliance is just average, it is a run of the mill power cord that can be found on most appliances. With that being said, the power cord is sufficient, and the thinness of the power cord does allow it to wind up easier on the lower part of the base. Overall Impression Of This Philips Avance Masticating Juicer This is a well designed and functional masticating juicer, I would suggest this product to a person who has enough time and dedication to regularly juice fruits and vegetables. The juicing process is easy and kind of fun, but is a bit time consuming.

    I started a juicing detox program, and this product is an integral part First off, the directions are kinda weak. You will fumble around for a few minutes since they are not complete, but it is fairly easy to figure out The vegetable chute is fairly small, so you will have to pre-cut the veggies down smaller than usual to get them to fit The unit is not very loud, operates smoothly (little vibration), and the end product is near perfect. I had the same drink made fresh before by a specialty grocery store, and I actually thought that my home batch was better at a fraction of the cost Clean-up us very simple, and the units plastic parts only stained a little from the turmeric. Overall this was a very sound investment in my families health

    A Modern Juice Extractor

    I have been using various Juicers/Blenders over the years. I was particularly excited to get this one as this is a Masticating Juice Extractor/ For those of you unfamiliar, this utilizes something similar to an auger to slice the products into little pieces and crush them as they pass further along the auger. Based on the yields I got, I would say it is fine. Not to bad but not crazy awesome as well. Overall I was satisfied with it. Pros: -The juicer is easy to put together, although the first time it took a bit of studying the picture instructions. -The juicer is easy to clean, literally takes less than 5 minutes to take apart and rinse. -Easy to use, the auger takes down most ingredients with ease, meaning you can juice just about anything. @@@@@@@@ I still have not tried nuts). -Sleek and modern, takes up very little space and looks great in the kitchen. Cons: -Small feeder tube, although this looks to be standard on these types of juices.

    I have had this juicer for a few weeks now. I have made juice from quite a variety of fruits, and am excited every time I use it. It really is pretty slim and slides anywhere on the counter or in a cabinet. It looks cool and the moving pieces are really heavy duty. The only reason for 4 over 5 stars is the price.

    Cleanup is Simple, Juice Needs Straining

    The slim design makes for easy storage on the counter or in the cabinet. I thought the drill would rotate faster but it still extracted all of the juice AND most of the pulp. The "sieve-free design" probably makes for an easier cleanup, (just rinse it off) but that just gives you an extra step (and an extra dirty dish) to sieve the juice separately if you don't want the pulp. I wouldn't recommend this for first-time juicers, but it's good for those who make juicing a lifestyle. It's all about preference.

    Eating fruit and veggies is healthy and the best way to eat a lot of them is to juice them! Obviously you want to extract as much juice as possible so you are not throwing anything expensive away. This juicer is extremely efficient, it uses a screw kind of like a meat grinder, but screw runs in reverse and pulls pieces toward the center of a unit squeezing them completely dry. All juice runs to the front spout and scraps are collected into the scrap bin underneath the screw assembly. Putting juicer together is very easy, first time it took me couple minutes looking at the picture, but now I can get it done in 30 seconds. Cleanup is easy as well, just take it apart and rinse it with cold water, everything is dishwasher safe as well. The most time consuming part of the whole juice extraction process is preparation of the fruit/veggies. This juicer has a fairly small feed opening - 1 and 3/8" by 1 and 5/8", you really need to chop whatever you want to juice into small pieces. As with any other juicer - you would also need to remove all pits, cores, and skin which is not edible (kiwi or orange skin for example needs to be removed, but apple skin is fine). But once you have gone thru the chopping process - everything else goes very easy. Try not to push pieces down the machine real hard or you may end up splashing the juice all over the countertop. In Short: Pros: easy to put together and cleanup, extracts juice till the last drop (very efficient, scraps are dry), compact machine size. Cons: requires lots of fruit/veggie preparation due to the small feed hole.

    I've never had a juicer before. But I figured why not. I unboxed it and got it put together pretty quickly. Read through the manual and picked out some recipes to try. I headed out to the store to grab some fruits and veggies. It was super easy to juice everything, and it did an amazing job of grinding every last drop of juice out of my ingredients. The absolute only con in my opinion is having to cut things up so small to have to fit in the chute. An opening maybe twice the size it is would be really helpful. Cleaning is hands down as easy as they claim. You take the grinding shaft out and simply rinse it off. It's a breeze! The device takes up little shelf space and does a great job. I recommend it to those who are really into juicing.
