Review // Slow Juicer vs. Fast Juicer

Slow Juice Review by Rosalie's Recipes // #slowjuicer #review #huromhf

I think I just met my new green love. The Hurom HF Slow Juicer. It’s my first ever slow juicer and I can tell you, it’s a big difference compared to my normal juicer. The juice I used to make with my ‘normal’ fast juicer – the Bosch MES3000 – produced much more vegetable pulp, which was always wet. This means, as some of you might know, that a lot of the good ingredients are wasted. Before I go on about my new juicer, I must say that I have enjoyed every juice that I made with this fast juicer: don’t get me wrong.

I am glad for the time we had together ;), he made me some lovely green monsters. But it was time to move on…

The Slow Juicer
Happy as a baby, I tried my new slow juicer with some nice fruit and veggies. What struck me first was the design. This slow juicer is definitely one of the prettiest out there. The machine is also really quiet. With my fast juicer I used to wake up my neighbours, with this one nobody will hear a thing. Watch and listen to my Instagram video to see and hear the difference.

The first juice I made with my slow juicer was a lovely mix of apples, melon, zucchini, grapefruit, lime and avocado. It tasted great.

I also found the slow juicer much easier to clean!

Comparing
But what I really wanted to know is the exact difference between a juice made with a slow juicer and juice made with a fast juicer. So I put it to the test…

I’ve made the exact same juice twice, once with my old fast juicer and one with my new slow juicer. The ingredients:

  • 1 apple
  • 1 pear
  • 1 carrot
  • 1/4 cucumber
  • 1 small piece of broccoli
  • 1 piece of kurkuma
  • 1 piece of ginger

Right after juicing with both juicers, the juices look like this (the left juice is from the fast Bosch juicer, the right one the Hurom HF Slow Juicer):

The juice made with the slow juicer is brighter, a bit ‘thicker’ and much tastier. The flavors where much intenser compared to the juice made with the fast juicer. After 36 hours, the juice made with the fast juicer was still drinkable but you couldn’t define what was in it. The flavors where flat. The juice made with the slow juicer was much intenser, I could really taste the carrot, ginger and especially the kurkuma much better.

Why should you buy a slow juicer:

  • A slow juicer produces more juice, less pulp and the pulp is dryer
  • Juice made with a slow juicer has a much intenser taste
  • Juice made with a slow juicer stays good for about 72 hours
  • A slow juicer is quiet, it even makes a kind of ‘cozy’ sound
  • A slow juicer is much easier to clean

Why shouldn’t you buy a slow juicer:

  • You are on a budget
  • You’re always in a hurry (which is a bad thing!)
  • You’re too lazy to cut the fruit and veggies into pieces:

Conclusion
The Slow Juicer is the better option by far. The Hurom HF is a good option: it’s silent, pretty, and it workes perfectly. But if you’re on a tight budget, please don’t hestitate and buy a normal fast juicer to start juicing. It’s way better than nothing! If you’re really into juicing and you’re ready for the next step or if you have a little more money to invest in your health, go for the slow juicer. You won’t ever regret it!

    I enjoyed reading your blog post Rosalie.
    There is also a third option (if you don’t want to buy the cheaper slow juicer, but if you think this juicer is just a little step too far). A few months ago, I bought the Oscar Vital Max 900 Juicer and I love it. The pulp stays dry, the machine doesn’t make too much noise (and the noise isn’t very annoying anyway—it’s a sort of sweet, humming sound), the juice stays good for at least 48 hours and the flavours are—as is apparently the case with the Hurom HF SLow Juicer—tasty, not flat at all. And it’s very easy to clean too, so this would be a great alternative, I guess 🙂

    1. Thanks Annemarie!! I’m gonna look into it. I haven’t heard of it yet 🙂
