Igenix IG8810 Whole Fruit Juicer, A very good machine.

Pretty fantastic as extended as you definitely want a juicer. This does what it promises but consider cautiously in advance of buying any juicer. You need very a large amount of space to store a juicer, for a start out, and then you will want a shocking sum of fruit/veg to extract a worthwhile amount of juice. They’re commonly no very good with comfortable fruit and just can’t make smoothies. Cleansing them is a soreness, so you require to do a whole lot of juicing in a session to make it well worth the work. Individuals are criticisms of all juicers, though, not this individual 1, so it would be wrong to mark it down. We have only experimented with just one juicer in the earlier, a dualit. That was some time in the past but this 1 from igenix looks to assess quite favourably. It is fairly easy to assemble/disassemble, provides a first rate volume of juice (we attempted primarily root vegetables these kinds of as carrot and beetroot, also apple, with some leafy greens lobbed in). It is noisy but they all are and you really do not have to run it for very long.

Rapid, higher capacity juicer, but be ready to use heaps of fruit. This is a very large equipment and is wonderful if you want to juice a ton of fruits and veggies in one go. It does take up a lot of kitchen function top true estate and comes with a jug to gather the juice which regretably will not healthy in my fridge in any configuration without acquiring to take out cabinets. The instruction manual is really transient. There are the normal safety warnings and routine maintenance directions. There is quite little facts about how significantly fruit you will have to have to get a yield for a glass of juice (250ml approx), which would be beneficial to know as i very seriously underestimated the volume of fruit needed. There is a single recipe in the manual for of all points – horseradish soup – seemingly 1 root will produce about 50ml and evidently the juicer can method close to 3kg of horseradish in two minutes (excluding time to eliminate the pulp) and this is the closest the handbook comes to telling you how a lot fruit you can system. The manual does appear with ideas such clean the fruit 1st, and take out the peel from thick skinned fruit like oranges and pineapples and raw beetroot – i experimented with juicing some clementines but considered that the skins would be regarded thin so failed to trouble peeling them – big oversight – quite a few fruits later on when the juice arrived out of the machine – it tasted definitely bitter. So i peeled the rest of the fruit and it created substantially more palatable juice (about 8 clementines produced a tiny glass of juice). As for juicing usual oranges, i don’t believe there is a lot edge with making use of this device for citrus fruit above the squeeze method unless of course you really like peeling lots of oranges.

Great juicer but you’ll need a big kitchen. I am new to juicing so i have no strategy how this compares to other juicers, but i have to say it can be simple to use and produces a surprising quantity of juice from even modest pieces of fruit. The leftover fruit pulp seriously is lowered to future to nothing but fairly than just throwing it absent, we have employed it in muffins and residence designed ice product. The controls could not be simpler and i was juicing within seconds of switching it on for the initial time. Cleansing the juicer is fairly straightforward and the primary components are all dishwasher secure. The draw back is the sheer dimensions of it and the house it can take up. We are blessed in that we have quite a big kitchen area so we have space for it, but taking into consideration our final household we would have genuinely struggled to have discovered a major plenty of worktop for it. The jug is also quite significant and while it would acquire up a lot of room in the fridge if we did not transfer the juice into bottles. Then once again, you would have to juice a good deal of fruit to fill the jug so it can make perception to transfer it.

I have had quite a few juicers above the years of various costs and from a variety of major model names and the 1 thing i have observed is that they are all quite much the exact. This a single is no diverse and the only real variation among them to glance out for is the wattage with the larger remaining the greater. You fall the fruit in the major and it falls down on to a spinning grater and the juice then arrives out the spout into the ready jug. As other people have talked about, they can be a pain to clean up but i have found that putting the dirty bits straight in the sink and making use of a washing up brush rather than a cloth tends to make it easier and it need to definitely only just take a handful of minutes if finished adequately. Also, the measurement doe at times shock folks as they actually are big old beasts so if area is a premium you may possibly want to glance at one thing else. It truly is not much lesser than your ordinary microwave. In comparison to other juicers this is up there amongst the far better kinds, for occasion i previously has a philips hr1875 and this one is just as superior but a portion of the price tag. To get two or three first rate glasses of apples juice you will require a superior sized bag of a dozen apples(i discover golden mouth watering get the job done ideal) and the juice that will come out will be form of frothy and not as distinct as when you buy it from the retailers. Also, you will locate some fruits just don’t appear to be to ‘work’, i tried using watermelon for illustration and it tasted quite odd, so you will need to have some experimenting with ratios if you want to make mixtures.

I am impressed with the performance of this juicer. With a glut of apples this year i have seriously place it by means of its paces creating apple juice. The motor is impressive adequate to offer with crunchy apples in quite huge chunks. The pulp is ejected (fairly fiercely i thought)into the pulp container. I locate that quite a lot of the pulp sticks to the go over which is a nuisance, but i have employed a very similar device at twice the selling price and it experienced the exact problem. So all in all a very great piece of kit.

Igenix IG8810 Whole Fruit Juicer, 1000 W – Stainless Steel : How can one manage without one. I have never used something like this before, though i did once have a liquidiser. Is this the same thing but only more modern?. Well it occurred to be that this is just the thing for making smoothies. They had not been inverted in the old days. So i have been experimenting with soft fruits and though the results are not worth publishing, i will keep at it and it is great fun trying all the different fruit and veg. Best of all, the apparatus is made from stainless steel so it is easy to keep clean. What a great thing, even for one such as myself who has progressed little from victorian times. I just don’t know how i managed without it.

    Good juicer but you’ll need a big kitchen. I’m new to juicing so i have no idea how this compares to other juicers, but i have to say it’s easy to use and creates a surprising amount of juice from even modest pieces of fruit. The leftover fruit pulp really is reduced to next to nothing but rather than just throwing it away, we have used it in muffins and home made ice cream. The controls couldn’t be simpler and i was juicing within seconds of switching it on for the first time. Cleaning the juicer is pretty simple and the main parts are all dishwasher safe. The downside is the sheer size of it and the space it takes up. We are lucky in that we have quite a large kitchen so we have room for it, but considering our last house we would have really struggled to have found a big enough worktop for it. The jug is also pretty big and while it would take up a lot of space in the fridge if we didn’t transfer the juice into bottles. Then again, you’d have to juice a lot of fruit to fill the jug so it makes sense to transfer it.

      Brilliant product that really gets every last drop of juice out of your fruit and veg. Unlike many juicers it’s neat and easy to clean. It is reasonably bulky though, so if just bear in mind if you have a small kitchen.

    This is my second juicer replacing one that i have had for a number of years. I will admit that the previous juicer only came out when we had a glut of fruit (or indeed vegetables) or it was on offer at the shop. These machines do use quite a bit of fruit to make a couple of glasses of fruit. The juice is very good though and this year was great with the apples etc. From the family’s gardens. This machine arrived well packaged, and the first thing that was noticeable was that this was a stronger machine than my previous one with a larger foot print on the work surface. The small manual that came with it was limited in information, but easy to understand on how to use the machine. The machine was quick to set up and easily able to juice some fairly hard apples. The machine was easy to clean afterwards.

    Fast, high capacity juicer, but be prepared to use lots of fruit. This is a very large machine and is great if you want to juice a lot of fruits and veggies in one go. It does take up a lot of kitchen work top real estate and comes with a jug to collect the juice which unfortunately will not fit in my fridge in any configuration without having to remove shelves. The instruction manual is quite brief. There are the usual safety warnings and maintenance instructions. There is very little information about how much fruit you will need to get a yield for a glass of juice (250ml approx), which would be useful to know as i seriously underestimated the amount of fruit needed. There is one recipe in the manual for of all things – horseradish soup – apparently one root will yield about 50ml and apparently the juicer can process approximately 3kg of horseradish in 2 minutes (excluding time to remove the pulp) and this is the closest the manual comes to telling you how much fruit you can process. The manual does come with tips such wash the fruit first, and remove the peel from thick skinned fruit like oranges and pineapples and uncooked beetroot – i tried juicing some clementines but thought that the skins would be considered thin so didn’t bother peeling them – big mistake – several fruits later when the juice came out of the machine – it tasted really bitter. So i peeled the rest of the fruit and it made much more palatable juice (about 8 clementines made a small glass of juice). As for juicing normal oranges, i don’t think there is much advantage with using this machine for citrus fruit over the squeeze method unless you really like peeling lots of oranges.

      Buying fruit juice from the supermarket is cheap and easy, but nothing in the stores quite matches the flavour of freshly squeezed fruit.  to have this at home, you are going to need a juicer and something like the ‘igenix’ has the power needed, but do you have the space?.  the ‘igenix’ has an industrial feel to it, not only in how effective it is, but also in look and size.  the stainless steel finish gives it an ambience that would not be unfitting to find it behind a cafe food desk, but what looks nice in a restaurant, does not always mean it looks great in the home. As a tool, the ‘igenix’ is great.  it can handle large pieces of fruit and juices them to the full, however you will still be surprised how many oranges you would need juice to get the same amount you would buy in a shop.  as a juicer great, but the sheer size will make it a cumbersome for many modern kitchens.  if you do have the space and want a juicer, then the ‘igenix’ is a great option.

    The first thing i can say about this product is that it is heavy. Well made, good looking and sturdy this is a juicer that has quality. It also takes up a fair amount of space so you need to be into juicing for it to justify its place in the kitchen. Its large capacity jug allows you to make a large batch at one time. However, notwithstanding, it makes juicing a bit of a doddle. I like the way you just plonk most things in without chopping and the machine does the rest. I just wish it could clean itself. It isn’t too much of a problem as you can put some of it in the dishwasher.

    Good quality and looks great, if you need a juicer. I’ve just read the first review of this item and my thoughts are very similar. I got this as a review unit and really enjoy freshly squeezed orange juice – but blimey fresh fruit can be expensive – i made a mistake in going to waitrose – so will be off to the local market for oranges next timei had hoped that i wouldn’t have to peal the oranges but you do with this juicer – no idea if this is the norm – so thats an extra hassle but once done it works quickly and simply – add the fruit push it down and out comes the juice. Cleaning up was ok but again – like the previous reviewer – i think this will be a once a week treat – the jug can be left in the fridge door or we will fill bottles. Cleaning up is ok – the detachable parts all went in the dishwasher and came out clean – the only other issue is the size – not sure where to put it – you need a big kitchen to leave this out all the time. So a similar conclusion – this is a quality juicer that looks good and works well. But taking account the cost of fruit and the availability of fresh juice in supermarkets i’m not sure if its worth it (for us). Ultimately i think this will be used mostly when we want to impress an overnight guest with fresh orange juice at breakfast.
