The Hurom Juicer HU100 was the first juice extractor produced by this manufacturer and today still remains our best selling 1st Generation model. Voted Best Juicer by Channel 5ís The Gadget Show and has been continually improved since its first release. The vegetable strainer and auger are made from super-tough GE Ultem, BPA Free material. This model includes some useful extras including coarse screen for soft fruits, a container sieve for reducing the amount of fibre in the juice and a tofu making kit, you also get a free juicing recipe book when purchasing from the Juiceland website. We hold stock of Hurom juicer spare parts. Choose your colour below.
Hurom reinvented the single auger juicer by turning the slow speed juicing mechanism 90 degrees so it is now vertical and giving it a juicing screen with a much larger surface area. By doing this, the juicer still slowly crushes the produce at a low 80 RPM but once it passes through this stage - gravity pushes the juice through much quicker than with a conventional masticating juicer.† This results in a slow speed juicer capable of producing juice just as quick as with a centrifugal juicer without the loss of nutrients caused by high speed juicing. For some people, one problem associated with a vertical juicer is that the juice contains more fibre than with other juice extractors. We have now included a sieve which sits on top of the juice collector which can be quickly put in place, handy for those customers not wanting the thick juice. For an even finer juice we recommend adding a Squeeze bag below.
As this slow juicer has a small footprint like that of a high speed juicer, it takes up less space on the worktop than other masticating juicers - itís as quiet as any other slow speed juicer and has a low RPM speed ensuring your juice is cold pressed for maximum nutritional value and storage life.
When the juice extractor is running, 2 silicone brushes perpetually pass over the filter screen cleaning any excess pulp that builds up - this ensures that the minimum of blocking problems occur during the juicing process. Also, water can be fed through the machine to clean it in between different juice recipes. A silicone seal is fitted to the pulp outlet to squeeze more juice from the fibre resulting in a dryer pulp and higher yield of juice. Unlike other masticating juicers - it is even great at juicing fruits . The crushing auger cuts the produce and draws it in to be ground on the larger surface area of the filter screen.
This juice extractor can juice fruit and vegetables as quick as you can feed the produce in, leafy greens and wheatgrass take a little more patience as anything long and stringy needs to be chopped up smaller and fed in slowly. Whilst it does not feature a whole fruit feed chamber like high speed juicers, it does have a large kidney-bean shaped chute which allows for larger pieces to be fed in cutting down on preparation time. The feed chute on this model is the largest across the Hurom range, all models since this one have had the feed chute reduced in size.
The Hurom HU-100 slow juicer has an excellent build quality which has been constructed for regular home juicing by using super-tough GE Ultem material on the juicing parts making it 8 times stronger than other juicers.
It can also produce soya milk and nut milks and the included tofu making kit allows you to make your own tofu from soymilk which can be produced by this juicer - watch video.
Hurom Slow Juicer - Uses:
We consider vertical juicers to be more of an all-round juice extractor, they are capable of juicing fruits, soft fruits, vegetables, and small amounts of leafy greens and wheatgrass. They perform much better than the traditional horizontal slow speed machines with softer produce like berries, pineapple and oranges but if you are mainly juicing wheatgrass and leafy greens - then horizontal masticating juicers do give much better results. So if you are looking for a juicer to do a bit of everything, then you canít go wrong with any Hurom slow juicer.
Cleaning and Warranty:
Clean-up is easy with this juicer, if you want to keep using your juicer but need to give it a rinse in-between juicing different ingredients, simply pour water through the machine whilst it is running. The water will flush out most of the remaining pulp and juice. There is a cleaning brush provided with the Hurom HU-100 juicer. This model comes with a five year warranty on the parts and a 10 year warranty on the motor, serviced in the UK by Juiceland who are an official distributor and service centre.
