Homgeek Masticating Slow Cold Press Juicer
Homgeek Masticating Juicer is a slow cold press juicer with a 200 watt DC motor and a low 80rpm speed for extracting fruit and veggie juices with higher nutritional value. There is a single button with On, O-Off, and R-Reverse options. You’ll get up to fifty percent more juice as it offers much better juice yield with the squeezing auger and the reverse button.
Thanks to the 80rpm slow speed there will be less frictional heat generated and much less oxidation and healthier and tastier juices with more of nutrients and freshness kept in the glass. There will be no foaming and hardly any clogging and you can press the R button for up to five seconds if something is stuck and this will push the ingredients upwards. You will have more of the healthy vitamins, minerals, and enzymes as compared to the high-speed centrifugal juicers.
Homgeek Juicer comes with a cylinder stainless steel strainer and is easy to assemble, disassemble and clean. You just need to add water into the unit and press the On button for up to 20 seconds and any residues left in the auger and chamber will be pushed out. You have the main base, squeezing chamber, micro-mesh filter, auger, top cover and fruit pusher. With the low rpm speed and twisting force, it separates the fruit pulp and juice very well.
There will be very little pulp remaining in your juice if you want totally pulp-free but it is probably good to have a bit of fiber in your juice. Please do remove the hard core of the fruit before juicing. And it is best to cut the items into smaller pieces if you want to see better performance and to avoid clogging especially with produce like kale and other leafy vegetables.
There is a convenient juice cap you can use to mix different juices in the chamber or to store it to be able to release liquid without making a mess or wasting anything. You can juice all types of fruits and veggies like lemons, mandarines, oranges, apples, pears, pineapples, kiwi fruits, blackberries, strawberries, mangos and leafy veggies, but not things like sugarcane or cereals. Despite being a slow masticating juicer it delivers the juice pretty quickly.
Despite being a slow masticating juicer it delivers the juice pretty quickly.

It is a compact unit with a small footprint, weighs 8.76 pounds, measures 8.27 x 8.27 x 17.72 inches, has a liter capacity, a 1.57 x 1.18-inch feeding tube and a 3.94 feet long cable. In the box, you’ll get the main base, the chamber, the auger, micro-mesh filter, the top cover, a juice jug, a pulp jug, a fruit pusher, a cleaning brush and an English user manual. You should read this manual for the easier assembly, operation, and cleaning.
Like with any juicer, it may be a little challenging to remove the fiber residues from the screen, so you may want to do your leafy veggies first, then easier fruits to end up with less to clean. The cleaning brush also helps make things easier and use some soapy warm water. It is packaged properly and shipped swiftly via Amazon.com. At the low price point, it appears to be a very good value for money juicer, with an average score of 4.8/5 stars out of 15 customer ratings on the day of the review.
