Green Power Juicer…
Should you choose this juicer?
The Green Power 1304 Juicer is a juicer in the truest sense – there are no blades, cutting surfaces or knives in this machine and for good reason: when you cut, chop, or slice fruit or vegetables, you’re not really juicing them and in fact could be damaging them. This machine instead uses a low power induction motor to press food ingredients, naturally releasing the maximum amount of juice and nutrients possible. But while this juicer is considered one of the best on the market, it’s not for everyone and there are some things you should consider in order to make an informed buying decision.
-What makes the Green Power 1304 Juicer Unique?
The Green Power 1304 Juicer uses new technology to preserve your juice. Most experienced juicers know that in order to maintain nutrients and freshness, juice must be consumed right away. But the Green Power Juicer uses ceramic and magnetic technologies that work to iodize the juice as its being pressed. This allows the juice to resist fermentation much longer than most juices – about 72 hours when refrigerated. This means that you no longer need to juice every day with the Green Power unit. Instead you can juice several times a week, storing the juice in your fridge and saving yourself a considerable amount of time and cleaning effort.
The motor is the heart and soul of the Green Power 1304 Juicer, and to prove its high quality construction it comes with a full 10 year warranty. This ¼ horsepower, 160 RPM motor is surprisingly quiet and causes little vibration, making the unit much more stable than higher-RPM motors that power most juicers. Additionally, the Greenpower juicer has an important safety feature: the motor automatically reverses when it comes into contact with something that is too hard to juice. This reversal ejects the item and prevents damage to the motor. But with the extra large feed chute opening, most items that you put in this juicer won’t cause a problem.
Green Power juicer reviews show that some consumers have a number of complaints with this unit, including:
*Power juicer has many parts that must be removed and cleaned, significantly extending total juicing time
*Juice can back-up in the feed shoot and spill out over the top as you are juicing, resulting in a messy cleanup and loss of expensive juice
*Juicer heats up after a short period of juicing and must be shut down to cool (Owner’s manual does recommend that the machine be shut down to cool for 5 minutes out of every 25 in operation)
However, despite these complaints most consumers are happy with their Green Power 1304 Juicer. It produces exceptionally nutrient-rich fresh juice with very dry pulp, allowing you to maximize your food dollars. And in the rare instance where you might have a problem with this juicer, Green Power is well-known to provide excellent customer service. With an incredible 90 day unconditional guarantee and ten year warranty on the motor, you have nothing to lose and everything to gain by purchasing a Green Power juicer.
