Kuvings NJE-3580U Masticating Slow Juicer Review

Kuvings-NJE-3580UThe Kuvings NJE-3580U Masticating Slow juicer is one of the best juicers on the market without the huge price tag to go with it. The Kuvings Multi-Purpose Slow Juicer really aids health-conscious people who crave that high potency blast of vitamins, mineral and enzymes found in various home made juices. These higher levels of benefits are preserved by the low speed masticating ability of this fabulous juicer; minimal heat build-up means less oxidation and thereby much better juice quality. The powerful heavy-duty motor and wonderful auto-feeding/extraction design makes juicing just about anything simple and quick. The multi-purpose function of the Kuvings NJE-3580U comes with one juicing nozzle for juicing fibrous fruits/vegetables and leafy greens and six different nozzles for food processing capabilities, like crushing ice, grinding coffee beans etc., or pasta making. This wonderful machine comes with all these features in a simple to assemble and disassemble machine with easy clean-up. It even comes with a dust cover to protect the juicer while not in use; let’s get juicing.

If great juice is what you want then this Kuvings juicer will not disappoint. This juicer yields nutritionally higher quality juice than other less expensive models due to its efficient low-speed masticating technology. The juicing auger, which is not sharp, presses and extracts the juice instead of shredding the produce like high speed juicers do, keeping the cellular structure intact. The continuous juicing system of this machine is simply wonderful, it separates pulp from the juice nicely allowing for continuous juicing; and the fruits and vegetables feel like they are pulled into the feeding tube, so there is no need for forcing or pushing the produce. The Kuvings appliance will slowly masticate fruits and vegetables, breaking down the cellular structure and releasing the nutrients and minerals; giving you much higher nutrition in every glass. This fabulous technology also means it minimizes the oxidation process thereby preserving the most of the nutrients and healthy enzymes thus producing a fresh all natural juice; the juice quality is simply top-notch. This machine also does a great job at juicing wheatgrass too. I have ran across a few folks who like to run an orange through after juicing wheatgrass as it really helps to get all the wheatgrass juice through the machine. It also adds a nice sweet taste to the wheatgrass juice. The Kuvings NJE-3580U Masticating Slow Juicer will also do a fabulous job at making baby foods and pasta. This juicer definitely falls into the best juicer category.

Ease of Use

If a juicer happens to make great juice it’s an added bonus if it’s easy to use, right? Well, this Kuvings juicer has to be one of the absolute easiest to use. The set-up and disassembly takes only a few minutes and clean-up is a breeze. It has a direction control power switch which really aids in preventing any clogging of the machine. The simple “forward” switch pulls produce down to extract and the reverse switch will push produce up in the event something becomes stuck; so simple, yet so very useful. With the improved auto-feeding system juice extraction can be done on virtually all fruits and vegetables quickly and conveniently. The efficient pulp ejection system automatically separates the pulp from the juice making for a quick glass of nutrition. Please note the manufacture recommends continuous juicing for up to a maximum of 30 minutes at a time.

Clean Up

Clean-up always seems to be a concern for a lot of people who are looking into purchasing a juicer, so I make every effort in addressing this. First of all, don’t let clean-up be the deciding factor, as the best juicer to suit your needs could be overlooked simply because of some additional effort required to clean. Personally, clean-up of any appliance is irrelevant to my decision in purchasing a particular appliance; getting better quality and performance now, that is what counts for me. With that said however, the Kuvings NJE-3580U Masticating Slow Juicer does has fewer parts to clean anyway making it as simple as a quarter turn on the lock that holds the cylinder and auger/masticator to the motor, then lift all the parts out as a whole and take to the sink. Once at the sink another half turn on the front cap and the auger and screen come out for easy cleaning. Now, just a simple rinse and gentle scrub with the included brush (brush not always necessary) and it’s ready to juice more or to be put away for future use. Remember though, with any appliance, clean-up is always simpler when taken care of soon after use. This machine will be a great addition to any kitchen. It’s state-of-the-art user friendly design includes; convenient carrying handle (for even weight distribution), built-in cord organizer and dust cover to make this your favourite appliance. Happy juicing!

Quality

This is a 17 lb. masticating type juicer with a fabulously efficient 170 watt motor that operates quietly at 80 rpm. It extracts high quality juice with minimal oxidation which is exactly what you want from a juicer because that means the important nutrients and enzymes are preserved for your health benefit. The yield from this juicer is high with very dry pulp and it can handle all types of fruits and vegetables, including leafy greens and wheat grass. Its durable heavy-duty single gear juicing auger produces less foam than traditional double gear juicers. In addition, the pulp ejection system facilitates continuous juicing for up to 30 minutes while automatically separating the pulp from the juice. This Kuvings juicer seems to be of high quality and everything I have read about it seems positive, including from those who have had experience with Kuvings customer service. I know plastic parts are not a huge deal, but I do wonder about the durability of those parts and how they will stand up over years of use.

The quality of this juicer continues with the inclusion of six additional nozzles for food processing versatility (seven nozzles total). Included with the Kuvings NJE-3580U Masticating Slow Juicer are a rice cake nozzle, large round pasta nozzle, small round pasta nozzle, mincing nozzle, large flat pasta nozzle and a small flat pasta nozzle; making it a juicer that can not only juice magnificently, but also grind, crush, mince and extrude pasta. This machine really does impress and the fact the Kuvings company has been making juicers since the 70’s is a really good indication that they will be around for many years to come. This juicers heavy, yet compact, design is very nice thus taking a minimal amount of counter space when all attachments are removed. It’s got a great sliding “half-dome” feature that slides over the area where the attachments are housed which really helps keep the unit clean when not in use. All in all this is a great quality machine that is sure to give years of dependable use.
