Further Details

The Breville Juice Fountain Plus and the Hurom Slow Juicer are two popular names in the juicing industry. Breville has a proven track record of creating quality products, while the makers of the Hurom Slow Juicer have promised to change the way people juice. Which product is right for you?

Centrifugal vs. Masticating

[easyazon_image align=”left” height=”110″ identifier=”B00B1ESZ5G” locale=”US” src=”http://www.kitchenblossom.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/08/41LZa2EGtNL.SL1101.jpg” tag=”kitchreview-20″ width=”71″]

The Breville Juice Fountain Plus is a centrifugal juicer. This means that the machine juices fruits and vegetables by tearing it with blades, then spinning the juice to the edges of the machine.  Centrifugal juicers work very quickly. A liter of juice can be produced in less than five minutes. Because these juicers use a spinning motion to separate juice and pulp, the juice becomes slightly more oxidized than it would in a slower masticating juicer.

Oxidation is the biggest culprit that degrades the nutritional value of juice.  The fast rpms of centrifugal juicers create more oxidation than slower masticating juicers.  There is some debate that centrifugal juicers heat up and kill living enzymes.  However, independent studies show that the slight perhaps 10.0F increase in temperature will not have an effect on enzymes.  However oxidation is a major concern with all fresh juice.  To overcome this, it is important to drink juice as quickly as possible after it is juiced.

The Hurom Slow Juicer is a masticating juicer. Masticating juicers use an auger to separate the pulp and juice. Most masticating juicers use a twin gear system.  Because this juicer uses a masticating approach, the juice has much less oxidation.  Both juicers work well for people strapped for time, but the Hurom “Slow” Juicer, is slower and also has a smaller feed chute so fruits and vegetables requires more chopping and prep work.  However, If you are concerned about juice oxidizing quickly and/or want to juice leafy greens, soft fruits such as berries, or juice leafy greens such as kale; the Hurom Slow Juicer would be the better choice.

Prep Work

The Breville Juice Fountain Plus has a wide feed tube. This tube is wide enough that most fruits and vegetables can be added to the juicer without being chopped. The Hurom Slow Juicer has a much smaller feed tube, so it requires extra time preparation time.  If chopping vegetables and fruit before you juice them is a hassle, choose the Breville Juice Fountain Plus.

Juicing Continuously

In theory the Juice Fountain Plus should juice continuously.  Food goes in one end, juice comes out the spout and pulp is collected in an external pulp container.  However, the pulp is not ejected into the pulp container with 100% efficiency.  While the pulp does build up quickly, it is easy enough to clean out.

Parts & Components

The blades of the Breville Juice Fountain Plus are made from stainless steel. The auger of the Hurom Slow Juicer is made from acrylic.  Stainless steel is a stronger material than acrylic.  The Breville Juice Fountain Plus is likely to be more durable than the Hurom Slow Juicer.  However, Breville offers a one year warranty, while Hurom offers two-year warranty and a 10-year motor warranty.

In the end, it is important to choose the juicer that will fit your lifestyle. The more convenient it is for you to juice, the more likely you are to do it.
