The Kuvings NS-950 Silent Upright Masticating Juicer is a welcome change from the common counter-top masticating juicer design. This juicer looks like a blender in the standard upright style and if appearance is important, this juicer’s lustrous chrome exterior will not disappoint; it’s the finishing touch to any kitchen counter. This juicer is loaded with features to help start your day off right with a healthy and delicious, all natural juice. The low-speed masticating technology quickly, efficiently and quietly provides you with a higher yield of juice that’s smoother, more consistent and richer in antioxidants and vitamins than centrifugal type juicers. This Kuvings juicer presses and extracts juice from its source rather than shredding, heating and ultimately destroying the important qualities produced from juicing fruits and vegetables like centrifugal style juicers do. The powerful and efficient motor of the Kuvings Silent Upright Masticating juicer works with fresh fruits, vegetables and leafy greens to make everything from juice, soups, smoothies and sauces. It is simple to assemble and disassemble and the included patented cleaning brush makes clean-up effortless. This compact juicer will look great in any kitchen.
The juice made from using the Kuvings Silent Upright Masticating Juicer is of superior quality because of the lack of oxidization produced while juicing. Although I wouldn’t classify this juicer as silent, it’s definitely quiet and powerful, producing fabulous tasting juices with little foam and dry pulp. This Kuvings juicer does not produce any heat thus maintaining the “raw” state of the produce; preserving the enzymes, vitamins and minerals critical to optimum health benefits. We all know the importance of eating the daily requirement of fruits and vegetables, but also know all too well, how difficult it is to fill those daily recommended servings; juicing makes this really easy. A masticating juicer like the Kuvings is ideal because it discards the pulp while leaving nothing behind but pure, healthy highly concentrated nutritional juice; making it extremely easy to fill those daily required servings. The Kuvings NS950 takes nutrition to a whole other, simplified, level for people.
Ease of Use
This Kuvings juicer not only makes fantastic juices, but is a pleasure to use. Many have said there is little need to push the produce through the chute, and I agree. Simply cut the fruits and vegetables to a reasonable size and the machine will do the rest — remember a masticating juicer is profoundly different than a centrifugal juicer whose blades spin at a high rate of speed, thereby pulverizing the fruits and vegetables along with the fabulous vitamins, minerals and enzymes too. It may be obvious to some, but not to all, but it’s very important to remove the pits from fruits such as peaches, plums, or cherries for example, as well as removing any hard skins before juice extraction should occur. The juice that comes from a masticating appliance can be stored up to 72 hours in the refrigerator unlike a centrifugal machine that because of its high speed will introduce too much oxygen and limit the time the nutrients will last.
The clean-up process of this juicer is much like other juicers and comes with a ‘toothbrush’ style cleaning device, but this model also comes with a “Kuvings Patented Cleaning Tool” that really contributes to easy clean-up. Simply rotate the cleaning tool and strainer in opposite directions while holding under running water and clean-up will be effortless. It takes just a few short minutes to take this juicing appliance apart and clean its components with this handy utility. I should mention there are actually fewer pieces in this machine to clean. There are many different models available which can take a considerable amount of time to clean, but the Kuvings Silent Upright Juicer is a snap. Don’t get me wrong, clean-up is still somewhat of a task, but after a few times it easily becomes a routine that takes about 10 minutes. A real bonus with this juicer is the high quality screen; it’s simpler to clean because it doesn’t get easily clogged. Cleaning the juicer immediately after use is the best advice I can suggest as the less time the machine has to sit, the easier it will be to clean and that seems to be the popular consensus of most juicing people. Some folks don’t allow for even one taste until the juicer is spotless.
The quality of the Kuvings Silent Upright Juicer is evident from the moment it’s removed from its box. It is a solid, heavy duty and sturdy appliance made from very good materials, the best of qualities one needs in a juicer. In fact, some might find this juicer too heavy (15.4 lbs.), but it has a handle to aid with repositioning. It feels solid like an industrial strength product, and I love that. Some of the parts are made of a high quality plastic material which is BPA free, a welcomed trait seeing’s the part comes in close contact with the produce being juiced. There have been very positive impressions when dealing with Kuvings customer service as well. They are responsive and provide fast delivery for warranty parts etc., so it’s wonderful to know that if you do experience an issue with your appliance the company (and a real person) will be there to support you. There are many special features you will find impressive, but the most notable would have to be the appliances quiet operation (240 watt motor) and efficient low-speed (80 rpm) masticating technology. It is highly effective at pressing and extracting juices from all fruits and vegetables, while preserving the nutrients and minerals and minimizing oxidation, thereby maintaining the nutritional content of the all-natural healthy juice without overheating. There is even a two-step safety-start-system sensor that prevents the juicer from running if it’s put together incorrectly. This just might be the ultimate in reasonably priced, highly efficient quality juicers. I recommend the Kuvings NS-950 Silent Upright Masticating Juicer to all health conscious individuals looking to improve their daily nutritional intake.

Pros VS Cons
- This Kuvings juicer comes with a written 10 year
- Positive customer service feedback
- There have been a few complaints regarding the feeding chute being on the small side
The Kuvings Silent Upright Juicer is a beautiful addition to any home and will help in making it extremely easy to produce nutrient-full drinks. This juicer uses the best in masticating technology that truly makes for excellent juice and simple nutrient extraction; it’s also very attractive on the counter. The motor is definitely quieter than most other juicers, but don’t expect silent. A masticating juicer imitates the chewing process of our mouth not the pulverization of a centrifugal type. Slower juicing preserves all the healthy ingredients while also reducing the foam that can form when using the faster centrifugal models. In conclusion, this is a great juicer that produces dry pulp, is easy to use and clean and looks fantastic in any kitchen.
