The value of the Kuvings Whole Slow Juicer
Why should I choose a Kuvings Whole Slow Juicer and not other, especially cheaper alternatives? We're often asked this question, so we're answering it in this blog post!
With so many juicers available in different price ranges, it can be difficult to find the best juicer brand, type and model. If you're new to slow juicers, especially Kuvings slow juicers, this article will give you an insight into the concept of slow juicing and why Kuvings is different from other options.
A slow juicer, also known as a masticating juicer, uses a heavy auger to chop ingredients and press them through a sieve. It usually operates at a low speed (40-60 rpm). The term “masticate” is derived from “masticate,” which means “to chew,” as the slow juicing process reflects the way we chew our food. Operating a slow juicer has various effects on the following aspects:
1. Gets more nutrients
Many people juice for the nutrients. Therefore, there is concern that exposure to heat during juicing can lead to the loss of important nutrients and enzymes. High-speed juicers, which operate at speeds of 20,000 to 30,000 revolutions per minute, generate heat due to rapid rotation, which leads to friction. The heat can cause the nutrients and enzymes to become damaged. The advantage of a slow juicer, on the other hand, lies in the slow and gentle chopping and squeezing of the ingredients, which does not generate any heat, so that the valuable nutrients and enzymes are preserved.
Oxidation is a chemical reaction triggered by contact with oxygen and can have a negative effect on juices. The juices can change their color and taste, shorten their shelf life and reduce their nutritional value. While oxidation is inevitable when juicing due to the supply of air, this process is minimized in slow juicers due to the slow rotation of the screw. Slow extraction means less oxygen enters the juicing process, resulting in less oxidation.
Slow juicers are known for their high yield and dry pulp (pomace), which is due to the double crushing and pressing process. This maximizes the juice yield from your ingredients. The lower oxidation in slow juicers also results in less foam and sediment , resulting in cold-pressed juice that has a smooth and rich flavor .
Despite their name, slow juicers work efficiently and can produce juice in a short amount of time. Additionally, these juicers offer a longer operating time, typically 30-45 minutes before needing to take a short break.
Slow juicers are known to operate more quietly compared to centrifugal juicers because their induction motors operate more quietly.
The price range of slow juicers ranges from inexpensive models starting at 50 euros to premium models that cost up to 700 euros, with the average price being in the mid-hundreds. Before you assume that purchasing pre-made cold-pressed juices from a store or juice bar is more economical than investing in your own products and a slow juicer, take a moment to do a comparison.
What sets Kuvings apart?
Kuvings juicers are known as premium slow juicers and differ not only from traditional slow juicers but also from other high-end models. Here are some of the top reasons why Kuvings stands out from the competition:1. Leader in the juicing industry
Kuvings was founded in 1978 and today has 45 years of experience manufacturing and selling juicers, blenders and much more. We produce our own devices in South Korea, which allows us to closely control the development and manufacturing processes. In addition, we rely on continuous research and development to continually improve the quality of all our products.
2. Larger filling opening
In 2012 we introduced our B6000 model, introducing the world's first whole slow juicer. Our innovation revolves around the term "whole" and refers to our slow juicers' spacious 3- to 3.5-inch-wide feed chute, which allows juicing of whole fruits and vegetables. The ability to juice whole ingredients is made possible by the robust motors and sophisticated augers of Kuvings juicers. These powerful components are able to efficiently chop and squeeze whole ingredients, providing a convenient and time-saving juicing experience
3. Opening with an automatic cutting function
The latest addition to our product range is the REVO830. This state-of-the-art model not only has a wide-mouth chute, but also a second filling chute, the so-called auto-cut chute. This innovative feature is specifically designed to automatically cut long, fibrous ingredients like carrots and celery, minimizing prep time.
Kuvings juicers can extract juice from a wide range of ingredients including fruits, vegetables, leafy greens, herbs, nuts and much more. Additionally, our juicers are equipped with smoothie and sorbet attachments, allowing you to go beyond traditional juicing. We also offer a separate citrus press attachment that makes peeling citrus fruits unnecessary.
5. High quality materials
Our commitment to the highest quality is reflected in the selection of durable and robust materials such as ULTEM, Tritan and ABS plastic as well as stainless steel. Our plastics are carefully manufactured and are BPA-free to ensure the safety of our customers and protect them from potentially harmful chemicals. In addition, all of these materials are designed to be effortless to clean, which not only increases their durability but also increases comfort.
6. Long warranty
Our premium home juicers come with a generous warranty of up to 10 years. Our aim is to reassure our customers that we will repair or replace any product defects free of charge, provided they meet the terms of our warranty. We offer personal customer support from real employees and do not use automated bots or artificial intelligence to ensure that our customers are supported by competent people who have extensive knowledge of our products.
7. Highest yield and driest pulp
While it is true that slow juicers use slow masticating technology, Kuvings leads the industry in achieving the highest yield and driest pulp. Our constant improvements to juicing components ensure that our juicers extract the maximum juice from all ingredients. To see for yourself the impressive yield and dry pulp of a Kuvings juicer, we recommend you watch this informative video that demonstrates the outstanding performance of our REVO830 model.
