My FAVORITE auger-style, slow-churning, low-oxidizing, super-fast-clean-up juicer!
When it comes to juicing specifically, as compared to smoothies, this is my go-to juicer mainly due to the slow masticating style. The new 8006 unit featured here has an improved auger that is somewhere around 8 to 10 times harder/stronger than their previous model. In my opinion, it is the top of the line in this style juicer, comparable to any of the over-$1000 priced masticating juicers. And again, in my opinion, this unit is applicable to use with the Gerson Therapy, if that was an avenue I was pursuing due to illness. The juicers they recommend are much higher priced, and I feel this one is absolutely comparable…if not outright just as good. (And for most people dealing with things like cancer, spending over $1000 for a juicer would be an added stress most of us don’t need…just my 2 cents).
That said, a video below demonstrating one of my favorite juices, that of collard greens, celery, carrots and a couple slices of apple. This kind of green juice is nutrition-dense, and we are able to take advantage of the nutrition thanks to the slow output, low-oxidation process involved in the extraction of this juice. Because of that, we can also store the juice longer than the high-spinning juicers (within reason…I personally would not store the juice for longer than a day, though I’ve heard minimal degrading happens if one goes up to two days).
The clean-up time is the fastest with these of all juicers…BUT…I want to make this clear…although the clean-up time is awesome (mainly because the “mesh/screen” section is so small) the overall TIME to juice is going to be roughly the same as the faster juicers. Why? Because it’s producing the juicer at a much slower rate, which again, in my opinion, is more desirable. I just do not want to drink the juice from those super-fast screen juicers. It’s better than nothing (and much better than bottled juices)…but it’s worth the twice-the-cost investment, especially considering the mammoth warranty we get with these kinds of juicers.
Besides, I want all the fresh nutrition I can get from my investment into the fruits and veges I’m juicing. If a substantial percentage is all being ruined via high-speed spinning parts oxidizing the nutritional components, I’m not making the most of my produce purchases, nor giving my body the best advantages in that regard.
