Best Vertical Single Auger Slow Juicer Comparison

Alright, this is John Kohler at
today we have another exciting episode for you and this is one of the ones you guys have
been waiting for a long time. Basically I’m going to talk about all the
different name brand, high end, top end, vertical single auger juicers on the market at this
time. You know, these are just the pick of the litter,
the best of the best, the ones that you will want to consider if you’re buying a vertical
single auger juicer. You know, some of the companies also make
different models. These are the newest ones—these are the
only ones that I recommend. Sometimes, as in the case of the Omega, their
old models are just fine but the new model has a few new features that I like a lot more. that’s why I’m going to talk about all the
latest and greatest models. Now, if it’s not one of these brands that
you’re seeing on a table, if it’s another brand of vertical single auger juicer you
are considering, I would highly discourage you guys against it. All the vertical auger juicers you see on
the table today are manufactured in Korea. This is where the vertical single auger juicer
originated. There are many knockoffs now being made in
China. So the Koreans invented the technology, perfected
that technology of the vertical single auger juicer, and then it came out and then China
saw the machines, basically, and knocked it off. So these machines have been through many years
and years of revisions and upgrades to dial it in to make them perform the best with minimal
clogging when used properly. Many of the Chinese models, number one, don’t
produce the same yield—you could 30, 40 percent less yield, actually. It will clog up, you will not have the same
amount of warranty on it, may have parts that contain BPA—many of these juicers are actually
BPA free. So I recommend sticking with one of the top
brands, and yes, they will cost more but you know what? You guys get what you pay for and the thing
I want to mention first off is that my favorite juicers which are on this side of the table
have a 10 plus year warranty. So that means you’re going to have to buy
a juicer once and then you’ll have it for the next 10, or in the case of the Omega Vert
400, next 15 years. You’re not going to have to worry about buying
another juicer. Think about it—if you bought a car and it
lasted for 15 years guaranteed, right, you’d never have to buy another car except maybe
change the brakes and put gas in, of course. How would that be? Well, juicers are like that. Not many appliances you can say are literally
a onetime purchase you’re going to have for a long period of time. So any case, with that, let’s get into the
comparisons. So in the comparison today we’re going to
go ahead and talk about some of the pros and cons of each one. I’m not going to get into to specific juice
offs or comparing yields other than me speaking about my experiences with all the different
juicers. I do have specific videos where I compare
different juices against each other so that you guys can see the exact yields that they
make when juicing the exact same amount of items. So what we’re going to do now is we’re
going to go ahead and go over each of the machines. Over on this side, we’ve got the Hurom 1
in 2 juicer—this is actually a stainless steel here. It actually looks kind of nice. But that’s probably where it ends, you know. For me, Hurom is probably my least favorite
of all the machines on the table today. And there are a few main reasons. Number one reason is the short warranty. This machine has a two year warranty on the
entire machine which is ridiculous. All the other machines have a 10 or 15 year
warranty- that’s 5 times the warranty length, or more, actually. I think that’s where it really falls short. You’re going to spend a ton of money on a
juicer and if it breaks in 3 years you’re going to have to buy parts. Let me tell you, some of the parts for this
machine, they get quite expensive. I don’t want you guys to go down that dead
end road, I want you guys to order a machine that’s going to be—have a long warranty
so that you will have the parts, you will get the service at no charge, so you won’t
have to pay any extra for that. The company won’t nickel and dime you to the
end. Okay, so another thing I don’t particularly
care for about this juicer is it’s a 2 in 1 juicer. But john, it’s a two in one juicer man! It juices and it makes smoothies—that must
be good, right? That’s not a good idea. Because think about it—things that have
dual purpose functions in most cases are not as good as something that has a singular function. And such is the case with the Hurom juicer
here. What they’ve done so that you can’t have
the smoothie function on the bottom here, most of the juicers actually have a flap on
the bottom that’s a silicon flap that self regulates the pressure and it keeps back pressure
on the pulp to only let the pulp out when it gets it dry. So that means all the other juicers on this
table will get a higher yield when juicing because Hurom, when it simply has a lever
control for open or close—if you have it on open, then you’re set up for juice mode,
and when it’s in juice mode, there is no back pressure on the pulp, so you’re going
to get ejected pulp that’s coming out wet. Now when you’re getting pulp coming out of
your juicer that’s ejected wet, that means you’re throwing money down the drain because
there is still juice left over in that pulp that you’re not getting, right? On the same token when you do put it on the
smoothie and you put it on to close, then basically it mushes everything up and runs
it through a sieve. Now, in my opinion, a blender is the proper
machine to do and to make a smoothie. It works much more effectively. This, while I say it’s a smoothie, I would
say it’s a pseudo-smoothie. So I’m not a big fan of the Hurom due to these
few reasons. One of the cool things about the Hurom is
it has a little cover here, a little dust cover, that actually none of the other machines
come with, I kind of do like that. The thing you’re going to learn watching this
video today is that every machine has its pros and cons and you’re going to have to
figure out which machine will best meet your needs because I surely know which one best
meets mine. Alright, the next one on the table I like
a lot—is the Omega Vert. These two guys, the Hurom and the Vert, believe
it or not, are made in the same factory. The only difference is who is improting them. So Hurom is importing, the Hurom and Omega,
U.S based companies importing the Omega. They share similar udders and something similar
parts and the performance, actually, the Omega Vert will blow away the Hurom just due to
the design. Omega is smart, they set this up as a juicer
only, they’re not trying to sell it as a smoothie maker. Omega sells blenders if you want to get a
blender. The other thing I like about the Omega Vert
400 is that it has a 15 year warranty. The 15 year warranty blows away all the warranties
on the table. I mean this guy has a two year warranty on
all the parts. 15 years right here. I mean what, that’s seven and a half times
longer warranty—that’s insane. A 15 year warranty is insane. If you’re really one of those penny pincher
people and want to not have to buy a juicer for the next 15 years, you’re going to want
to get the Vert 400. So the Vert 400 I like a lot and it works
quite well actually. They’ve taken the Vert 350 design, kind
of improved it, in a few small ways including making the outlet port a little bit larger,
including also having the little juice flap here so you can do some mixing inside the
juicer. Also so that you don’t have drips on your
countertop when you’re done cleaning up. In addition, the Vert 400 has a really easy
lift off system so that assembly and disassembly is easier. Another thing I like about the Vert 400 is
that it’s fairly bullet proof. Because Omega has been selling the Omega 330,
350, and now 400 models, you know, this is just a tried and true model. So I mean, that’s pretty much where it stands
with the Omega Vert 400. Next, let’s get in to the Slowstar. But before I do, I want to talk about just
this vertical auger style machine in general. So the vertical auger style machines that
you guys are seeing here are my favorite juicers at this time. Does that mean it’s going to be your favorite
juicer? Not necessarily. You know, these juicers are pretty much all
purpose juicers. They’re going to juice pretty much everything
fairly well. They’re going to do probably one of the best
jobs at juicing fruits. They’re going to do a decent job at juicing
hard vegetables and they’re going to do a decent job at juicing leafy greens. Now if you said, john, I only juice hard vegetables,
should I get one of these? I’d say probably not, you might want to
get a centrifugal ejection style machine, the kind that you might actually already have
now. They produce a higher yield on the hard vegetables
actually than these guys. The problem is the centrifugal ejection machines
also produce a lower nutrition content in the juice and nutrition is actually quite
important to me. If you say, hey john, I want to juice only
fruits, should I get one of these guys? Well I would say if you want to juice only
fruits I would probably actually encourage you guys to get a blender. A blender is a much better appliance to process
your fruits in my opinion. You’re going to keep the fiber in there. Eating the fruits whole, using your nature’s
juicers or blenders, your teeth, to break up the fibers in the fruit because fruit is
so soft, it’s so delicious, and I think we should be eating them straight up or blending
them to get all the fiber. In addition, the fiber is going to slow down
the absorption of the sugars into your bloodstream and when you’re juicing it, taking up the
fiber, it may give you more of a sugar rush, so I’m not into that. That being said, you know, fruits can be juiced
if you do choose and want to juice fruits, you should select the proper fruits. If you select soft and mushy fruits, they’re
not going to juice well in any juicer. You need to select hard and firm fruits. If you pick up an apple in the store and you
press your finger in it, it leaves a little dent mark and it’s bruising it, that’s
not a good apple to juice, you want to get a nice firm apple that’s really crisp that
you can’t stick your finger in. these fruits, whether it’s apples or anything
else, are going to juice the best. If you do want to juice mostly fruits, then
the vertical singer augers are my top picks for a single stage juicer for juicing fruits
because they actually do it quite well. Now if you’re one of those people, John, I
know leafy greens are one of the best things to juice in the whole world and I want to
juice a lot of leafy greens, and the majority of what I’m juicing is leafy greens, then
I would probably say, you probably don’t want one of these vertical auger juicers. While they do juice leafy greens quite well
and many of my juicers have a lot of leafy greens within them, I do not do straight leafy
greens all too often. And when I do, I use a different juicer and
that’s what I’d recommend to you if you want to do mostly or all leafy greens, and/or
you want to juice a lot of wheat grass. While these juicers will also juice wheat
grass, it can make a lot of squeaking noise and not optimal, the wheat grass may clog
up this juicer and not let it eject the pulp because of the design of these machines. So then I would recommend a horizontal single
auger style machine. My favorite horizontal single auger machines
at this time are the Omega NC800 and the Tribest solo star 3. So if you’re one of those people that’s
just like, John, I’m just going to juice everything, I don’t really think I’m going to focus
on anything, well then keep watching this video because you’re going to want to learn
about these next two machines. These next two machines are the best of the
best of the vertical single auger machines at this time. Each one has their own set of pros and cons. So up until now, both these machines will
make either smoothies or juice. This one will only do juice—both these machines
will also make nut milks, as will these guys, they’ll also make nut milks, but these machines
are a little bit different. They have special attachments to allow you
to do more than just juice. So the Slowstar comes with a separate attachment
and this whole setup goes on top of the machine. Tribest calls this the mincing attachment,
I would tend to clal it the homogenizing attachment. So instead of just a simple design change
where they put a little lever, this is a whole different attachment that actually goes on
top of the juicer, you take off the juicing apparatus, you put the auger in here and now
you have an instant grinder. You can grind your coffee beans into ground
coffee, you can actually put frozen bananas through here to make a frozen banana sorbet,
which is a great treat on a hot summer’s day or an excellent way to get ice cream with
all the added fat and sugars and GMO corn syrup out of your diet and get more fruits
into your diet so that you can get healthier. Another thing you can do with this is to make
nut butter, so roasted peanuts will go through this unit and make a nice crunchy style peanut
butter. I always encourage you guys to make and process
your own foods at home for the highest quality. In this day and age, it’s quite unfortunate
many food manufacturers will add in preservatives, and BHE, BHT, and all these ingredients, so
you never really know what you’re buying and what’s in your food. But if you make yourself, you’re going to
be able to eat the highest quality food. So yeah, so this attachment also works for
mincing so I have made things like salsa, just putting in chopped up tomatoes through
here, and onions and cilantro, and it’s going to chop it up into that perfect salsa
consistency every single time. Another way I have used this is to make my
own sauerkraut, so I simply put the cabbage through here, mushes it all up, gets a lot
of juice out, I’ll then stick this in and ferment it into my own sauerkraut, so this
attachment comes in very, very handy and actually I like it a lot. No other juicer has this specific attachment
to do all the functions that the Slowstar can’t so the Slowstar by far is the most versatile
machine on the whole table. Another thing I like about the Slowstar is
that it includes a few different components. So while many of the machines on the table
include an accessory strainer except the Kuvings whole slow juicer which I think every manufacturer
should be including, the Slowstar actually takes it to the next level and they include
a high quality strainer with their machine. It’s 100 percent stainless steel here, high
quality with a nice tight weave. Nice tight things, including a nice tight
weave on my strainer, to get out all the pulp if you desire that pulp-free juice. Because one of the things that many people
don’t realize is that all the machines on this table, vertical, single auger machines
in general produce more pulp in the juice than virtually all other style machines. This is a particularly a problem if you’re
coming from a centrifugally ejection machine like a Jack LaLanne or a Breville or something
like that, that produces very little pulp in the juice and you’re like, I don’t
like the juice of the new one, man! It makes too much pulp. Well, you know, you can choose to drink the
pulp, nothing wrong with it, some people like pulpy juice, and if you don’t, I like that
the Slowstar includes the highest quality strainer. Of course, the Omega and the Hurom also include
a strainer as well. Another thing I like about the Slowstar is
that they have a really cool design clean brush. This is the most advanced cleaning brush because
not only do they have the standard toothbrush end to clean out the screen, the screen is
the hardest part to clean on any vertical slow juicer. It also has this little cleaning brush on
the top that lets you get into some of the nooks and crannies that the other machines
do not have but in addition it also has little rate screw driver tip in. this can be very convenient for getting some
of the pulp out of the pulp ejection port, so I do like that a lot. Now, in addition, the Slowstar also comes
with an instruction book with a few recipes in it which I definitely think is a good way
to go. So based on that I do like the Slowstar line
but it’s really tough to compare the Slowstar to the Kuvings whole slow juicer because once
again each one has their pros and cons. I’d say the Slowstar, little bit more versatile
because it does have that hwole attachment to do the grinding, the sorbets, the nut butters,
the salsas, and coffee grinds. It also comes with a strainer and all this
kind of stuff and it grinds better so you’re going to get a higher yield. That being said, the Kuvings is definitely
another one you’re going to want to consider. The main thing with the Kuvings is that unlike
all the other machines on the table, it has a wide 3 inch feed shoot. All the other machines on the table have a
smaller feed shoot, including the Hurom and the Omega Vert here. Now the Kuvings has a 10 year warranty as
well so I like that a lot. On the Kuvings, it has a few features that
I like a lot. I mean number one, it has that 3 inch wide
feed shoot so this means you’re going to do minimal preparation on producing many produce
items such as carrots and apples and oranges and you know, cucumbers, things like that. But if you’re juicing leafy greens, just because
it has a large feed shoot doesn’t meant you can just stuff leafy greens or celery
in there. Leafy greens and celery need to be precut
on any of these slow juicers to work properly otherwise you will get clogging on the ejection
port. The reason for this is on these machines,
the pulp has to come down and make a right angle turn and come out and those long fibers
like in the celery or even on the stalks of leafy greens will get stuck in this port,
then you’ll get clogging, the yield that you’re making will go down and the pulp in
the juice will dramatically rise. So I do have specific videos on how to properly
use the Omega Vert for best results, if you just do a Google search for Omega Vert best
practices. I also have a similar video for the Slowstar
juicer. Slowstar juicer best practices or how to use,
you’ll see my video on that. I do not yet have one on the Kuvings whole
slow juicer but intend to do that soon but basically you’re going to have to do the same
thing. You’re going to have to precut your leafy
greens and celery into 1/8 inch pieces, that’s eighth inch pieces, that’s this wide, for
best results. Now if you don’t want to cut an eighth inch
pieces you can cut them larger but it might not work as well. I’ve juiced many times where I cut into
one inch pieces but depending on the quantity of juice you want to make—if I’m just making
a cup, yeah you could probably cut into large pieces, but if you want crank through and
juice like 64 ounces in one sitting, if you’re not cutting it into small pieces it’s going
to back up and not work well for you at all so I really encourage you guys to watch those
videos. So aside from that, cutting many things is
going to be easier on the Kuvings. One of the things I don’t like about the
Kuvings is that all these machines have a funnel. This helps you guide and put things into the
machine. The Kuvings, because it has a 3 inch wide
feed shoot, figure you don’t need a funnel. I actually personally do not like this because
say you want to put in grapes or cherry tomatoes, right, if you miss the hole, they’re going
to fall on your counter. I like the funnels on the machines… it funnels
the produce into the machine. Of course, another thing I like on the Kuvings
is a little stopper here. The stopper will prevent the drips on your
counter and also I’ll allow you to mix things inside the juicer. Now, let’s talk about a few more features
of the Kuvings whole slow juicer that the other machines do not have—number one, they
have a blank plate. I’ve been telling Omega for the longest
time to make a blank plate so that people can do nut butters and frozen banana sorbets
in the Omega Vert. they have never come out with one to date but I’m glad that Kuvings
did. Now, be aware, while this is a blank plate,
it will not do all the things that the Slowstar juicer will do with this one because they
don’t exactly operate the same. This one as you guys can see has a really
wide ejection port and when you’re using the blank plate in the Kuvings whole slow juicer,
you’re restricted by this little star pattern inside the juice spout. This is so that you can’t stick your fingers
in there. This prevents wide things that are ground
up with the blnak plate to be ejected out. So Kuvings only sells this blank plate for
use by making nut butters or frozen banana sorbets, nothing else, do they approve of
putting in the juicer with this blank plate? It will void your warranty. So I do think that is a hindrance, actually,
on the part of the Kuvings whole slow juicer. I wish they didn’t have this hindrance that
I would like a lot more. the Slowstar is just a little bit more versatile
with its mincing plate that you can pretty much mince anything in but I’m glad at least
Kuvings has made an attempt and has included this with their machine. Now, there are special use instructions included
with the Kuvings whole slow juicer when using this. You do need to freeze say your bananas and
you want to precut them before freezing and then when you freeze them take them out and
before putting them in your machine, Kuvings recommend you thaw them out for a little while
so they’re softer before putting them through the machine with the blank plate. So I do like that they have a blank plate,
I’m just a little bit saddened that it’s not as versatile as the Slowstar. The next thing I like about the Kuvings and
where all the other companies should take a lesson about is the cleaning. Cleaning is the hardest aspect of any of these
machines which turns many people off to juicing. I get the emails all the time—John, I would
use a juicer only if it was easier to clean. You know, unfortunately no one has invented
a self cleaning juicer at this time although all the vertical juicers are fairly self cleaning—one
of the tips I would recommend to use, once you’re done juicing in any of the vertical
slow juicers that I have on the table today, you’re going to take a pitcher of water, 32
ounces of water, and pour it through the machine, and catch the water as it comes out. This will help flush solids and things through
the machine, thereby making cleaning easier as the first step. I show this specifically in how to use the
Slowstar juicer video. So that’s number one. Number two, Kuvings provides not only one
brush—like many companies provide one cleaning brush. Kuvings provides three brushes, there is no
other company on earth providing three cleaning brushes to save you cleaning time so that
you can get on with your life and do other things that are more important than cleaning
your juicer. So I’m going to go ahead and show you guys
the three different cleaning brushes they include with the Kuvings whole slow juicer. So here are the cleaning brushes with the
Kuvings whole slow juicer. Number one, you get a standard toothbrush
cleaning brush. I like this a lot. The main thing with the toothbrush, cleaning
brush is that it has a nice, hard stiff bristle. The ones on the Slowstar, not quite as stiff
as I’d like. This is a nice stiff bristle that’s really
going to be good for getting in that screen and cleaning that screen, although I don’t
like that they don’t really have a good little end like the rate end on the Slowstar,
much better designed tool here. Let me go ahead and show you guys the hardest
part to clean on any juicer here—it’s actually the juicing screens, so we’re going
to go ahead and take this out. This is a patent pending designed auger which
allows you to put the whole fruits in. oh and while we’re talking about that, on
the Kuvings, actually, the Kuvings has the most powerful motor of all the machines on
this table. I mean literally the motor being more powerful
is required because you know, the juicer is expecting to have a lot of things in that
are 3 inch wide in diameter, so it needs to have a lot more torque to snap off that produce
and get it juiced. So here is the juicing screen. This is the hardest part to clean on any machine
and with the stiff bristles, you can actually scrub this out on the outside and also on
the inside. Now Kuvings had made the screen cleaning significantly
easier because the screen takes the most time of any of the parts to clean on the vertical
single auger machines by making a special cleaning tool—here it is. Nice design tool. I think all the companies should have a tool
such as this. Literally all you do is you take your screen,
you take the tool, pop it in there and check it out—you just turn this and these brushes
are in the right position when you turn it to clean the screen. Now you could make this better by having one
that makes a U that could clean both sides at the same time but at this time it just
cleans the outside and then you’re going to need this other cleaning brush to you know,
just clean the inside and that’s going to happen really quickly and easily with the
Kuvings whole slow juicer. Another brush that’s not included on the
other juicers are brushed like this. This is basically like a pipe brush. Now, the pipe brush is quite important because
it allows you to get into the juicing spout and clean in the juicing spout—I mean this
is something that you can’t really do with the standard brush on some of the other machines. You can’t really get in there too effectively—this
really allows you to get in there to clean your machine so you have a brand new looking
machine each and every time os I do like that they include literally all these 3 brushes—taking
it to the next level. I like that when companies do that. I want to encourage the other companies to
come out with different cleaning brushes to improve the user experience—I mean that’s
what I’m all about. I personally like the machines that are the
top of the echelon—these two machines sit on my counter. These are the two machines I use, why? Because the Slowstar has the highest yield
because the Kuvings, a lot more convenient, easy to use, and easy to clean. I’m going to go ahead and reassemble this
guy real quick. So the last thing I like about the Kuvings
whole slow juicer is that it comes with the standard instruction manual which is very
important. I always encourage you guys to read your instruction
manual before use. I also would encourage you highly to watch
my videos because sometimes I say things in my videos that’s actually not said in the
instruction manual, like particularly, how specifically the juice for the highest and
best result and minimal jamming because to my knowledge none of the manufacturers go
into detail on how I share and what I’ve learned over these years using the vertical
single auger juices. So besides just the standard instruction manual
that Kuvings has which every other company has, they actually also have a nice little
whole slow juicer recipe book. Now, the Hurom also does come with the recipe
book, not quite as nice with the Kuvings. This is what every juicer company should come
out with. People buy juicers, and if I buy a juicer,
I know what to do with the juicer, but the problem is most of you guys that are going
to get the juicer for the first time have no idea what to do with the juicer. You don’t know the recipes you could make,
you don’t know how to combine different fruits and vegetables to make juices like
I would know and actually share in my videos, and you guys need some guidance. So I think it’s a recipe book like this,
I mean this is the Kuvings whole slow juicer recipe book, nice full color. I think the next thing they could do is if
they made it actually stand up on your kitchen counter so that you could acctually leaf through
it and see the recipes as it’s sitting there instead of having it lie flat. So in addition in this recipe book, they go
over specific directions for use but also they have different recipes. This is a wealth of knowledge, it’s so cool. We’ve got basic juices, vegetable juices
in section one, and we have a section for nutritious juices and baby foods, and going
into the next section, we have a section for cool fruit juice cocktails, look at those
pictures, I mean, I like that it’s a nice color book and it gives you specifically the
recipes, you know, how to make the recipe, how to do it, what you’ll need, how to prepare
everything, then finally the last section in here is smoothies and frozen desserts. So I think this is really cool that they’re
providing this to give you some starter recipes. I mean this book is nearly 100 pages and this
is one of the things that actually aside from the Hurom you do not get a nice recipe book
to get you started on the right path to the road to hell. I do hope that Kuvings and other companies
will come out with books like this and even exdpand it more and make it like 200 pages
with other healthy plant based recipes so that people can eat more plants instead of
all the different processed food and animal products because that is truly the power of
the juicers here, any of them. They will allow you to eat more fresh fruits
and vegetables and I am a fruit and vegetable advocate by all means. So hopefully after watching this episode,
you’ve learned more about the top of the top vertical slow juicers currently on the
market and as you guys learned, each juicer has a pros and cons. I’m going to quickly go over some fo the points
that I want you guys to remember. Number one, I would steer clear of the Hurom
slow juicer—with its two in one knob it’s going to reduce the juice yield and not really
make smoothies as well as a blender anyways and it has a high price tag and short warranty—stay
clear of that. The Omega Vert has a 15 year warranty—it’s
by far the longest warranty of any of the juicers that I’m sharing with you guys today
and it’s backed by Omega, the longest juicing company that’s being represented. They’ve been in the business in the USA
for many, many, many, many years now and I’m highly confident they are not going anywere. Also this is a good solid performer, with
the easy lift off which means easier cleaning, less clogging, and it’s got a little juice
spout here. So yes, definitely a really good machine. Next, we’ve got the Tribest Slowstar juicer. The Tribest Slowstar juicer has a 10 year
warranty backed up by Tribest who has been in business for the last 25 years. This one has the highest yield of all the
juicers I’ve tested to date without doing particular side-by-side tests on these two
guys yet but just from my observations, in addition, it has that nice stainless steel
strainer. Also includes that two in one attachment,
to have full two in one functionality, more so than any of the machines on the table. Finally we’ve got the Kuvings whole slow
juicer, the newest entry into the market. Has a full 10 year warranty. Kuvings is a solid company, I’ve visited
their factory in Korea, they actually make the motors in their factory that go into the
machine. It has the wide feed shoot which is beyond
huge for ease of use and convenience. You may pay a little bit of the price because
the yield might not be as good as a Slowstar but I haven’t compared them side by side
yet, but the convenience factors really nice. The thing to remember is once again, on all
these vertical slow juicers, you will need to precut your greens and your celery before
putting in any of the machines. That being said, the Kuvings whole slow juicer
will also make the nut butter and sorbets but not do the other functions that the Slowstar
will. The final thing on the Kuvings whole slow
juicer is that they have that recipe book and instruction manual, so that recipe book
blows me away—100 plus pages to get you started on a healthy lifestyle today. The final thing about the Kuvings whole slow
juicer is that besides making it easier to juice with the wide feed shoot, they make
it easier to clean with the three cleaning brushes. So I do appreciate this a lot, and I like
the Kuvings whole slow juicer a lot at this time. Once again, to sum it all up, at this time,
you know, these two machines on this side of the table are my favorites, each for their
own particular reason. So be sure to check my other videos for direct
comparisons between different juicers, side by side, to see which ones yield more. also I’ll probably go into more detail about
some of the unique and smaller differences between them. This is kind of like the general overview
video for the vertical slow juicers. Hopefully after watching this video you’ve
learned my favorite juicers at this time. I want to encourage the manufacturers—if
you are a manufacturer watching this, to raise the bar. These two are my favorite machines at this
time but if you guys make a more convenient, easy to clean juicer that works better with
less clogging that makes a high yield, that’s better for the public and for me because I
am the public, I juice everyday, I want to use that juicer that’s easy, I don’t want
to use a juicer that’s hard to clean, that’s hard to take apart, that has a short warranty. Raise the bar on the warranty, raise the bar
on how well the machines work, raise the bar on how well it juices the greens, raise the
bar on all the different aspects of the juicer, I’ll be glad to say that’s my favorite
juicer next time. But until that happens, Slowstar, Kuvings
whole slow juicer are my favorite pick out there at this time in the marketplace. Hopefully after watching this video you’ll
learn which features might be more or less important to you and select the juicer that’s
going to be right for you so you can get it and start including more fresh fruits and
vegetables in your diet so that you can lose weight, have more energy, and lead the lifestyle
you want. Once again, my name is John Kohler with Be sure to visit

  • Omega VRT falling further and further behind the times… even though everyone else seemed to copy their design and even use the same parts

  • Thank you so much for making this video. I was waiting for a comparison of these for machines to purchase my juicer. You give such great and insightful information. Keep making great videos and do great work.

  • Thanks for this video. I have been anxiously debating wether to get the slowstar or kuvings whole juicer. I think although the kuvings has the wide feed chute, the slowstarbis more band for the buck…..thanks again john, you are great for doing what you do.

  • I'm liking that kuvings. Can't wait for a juice off between the slowstar and the kuvings. I am so close on buying one of these

  • John, in this and in the Kuvings unboxing video, you say the Kuvings comes with three brushes. When I received my Kuvings last week (preorder from your store), I opened it and there are only TWO brushes included…the pipe cleaning brush is not included in the box, and it is not mentioned in the instruction book (the other two are). Did I get an older model somehow, or are you mistaken about the pipe cleaner brush? Kuvings really should include it; there are parts of the juicer that are impossible to clean without a brush like that.

  • i've had the kuvings for about 2 weeks. it's my first slow juicer (i had a centrifugal ejection juicer before). a great upgrade! so far so good! i've been juicing every day.

  • Guys go  Kuvings Whole Slow Juicer B6000s. It is fantastic. I upgraded from Omega 80006. I initially wanted Omega VRT 400 but they were out of stock. Thanks John for all these fantastic videos. YOU ROCK.

  • Chinese shit sucks, doesn't matter what it is.. whether it is a hammer or a g.d. juicer.  So pissed.. they care NOT about anything.. rights to patents, intellectual rights.. nothing.  Hollywood comes after us for "copyright infringement" yet CHINA goes untouched for all the knock off shit they put out.. errrr….

    Good video John!

  • @P-Sharp, I recommend waiting for john to do a juice off before you decide. I personally like the Kuvings whole slow juicer the best. I juice a lot of mangos, dragon fruits, star fruits, etc and it just makes it that much better to not have to cut it so much. I myself do not have a problem with not having a tray but I understand many people do like that on a juicer. It juices many other things greatly as well I've tried all of johns recipes that he's put on YouTube and each one is delicious out of the kuvings.

  • Thank you so much for this video, John! I am going to wait for your video comparing kuvings and slowstar for yield before I buy one! Can't wait! Thank you again!

  • Have been contemplating buying a juicer for months now.  Was looking at the Kuvings Whole but saw John's video on the SlowStar.  Then saw his video on the Kuving Whole…now I am at a stand off.  Which one do I get?  John please do a video comparing these two juicers.  We are ready to buy!  

  •  I can't wait to see you next video every  day i am wishing to see the Kuvings vs Slow star!!!
    and the one after i wish it will be the winner vs Hurom second generation 😀
    Thanks for helping use every day, wish you all the best!!

  • @P-sharp, I cut off the peel before I put it in, depending on the size of the mango I usually have to cut it up but not to much with the Kuvings. Most of the recipes that come in the kuvings book are actually quite delicious so a recipe book included is a plus especially the mango tango fruit juice that is in the recipe book. It is best to wait for johns juice off to decide on a juicer. He will explain in better detail what machine is better for people who are doing certain things.

  • Oh…I don't like the "On/Off switch" on the Kuvings…what is up with that?  You have to hold onto it into some unknown position and/or for some unclear amount of time to get it to stay on.  Am I doing something wrong!?!?! 🙂  I wish it just turned on.

  • Thanks John for all you do. It must take a lot of your time doing all these videos and they're so informative – I've learned tonnes:-) I hope you reap the rewards for your efforts in all ways

  • wouldn't it be easier to move the juicers rather than trying to squeeze between them?  other than that, very awesome!  thank you very much, John.  going to get a Kuvings!

  • Your videos are very helpful, thank you.  I'd love to see a juice off between the Slowstar and the Kuvings whole slow juicer.  Several types of juice etc… Thanks so much for your work!
