Review Of The Hurom H-AA Slow Juicer
When we heard that the H-AA was a juicer that is easy to clean and make ice cream, we took notice. In addition to ice cream, this device can make tofu, and milk from nuts and soybeans. Before we get the the review, here are some specs:
- 43 RPM (Slow Squeeze Tech)
- Pulp control lever – you can control the amount of pulp going into your juice
- Juice leafy greens, vegetables, and fruits
- Make tofu and soybean or nut milk
I’m not going to say I eat my fruits and vegetables every day. But I will say a good juicer makes it more likely! Since I figure others are in the same boat, it’s my goal here is to help people find the juicer that fits their needs.
Today we’re looking at the Hurom H-AA slow juicer. Let’s look at the specs, and then the flaws.
The Hurom H-AA Technical Aspects
The Hurom H-AA Slow Juicer is a fairly effective little device all told. The device is a cold press juicer rather than a centrifugal juicer. What this means is that the juicer works by pressing the plant material down as hard as it can to eventually reduce it to either pulp or fluid with no in-between. Most of these juicers tend to leave more juice than pulp, though lower end juices of the cold press variety tend to make even the pulp parts drinkable enough to be enjoyable.
The Hurom H-AA Slow Juicer in particular works especially well on extracting liquid from citrus fruits such as grapefruits and oranges. It also works very effectively on hard fruits and vegetables, such as apples, cucumbers, tomatoes, and grapes. This device also works quietly compared to the centrifugal juicers it’s competing with. Those juicers typically work by using a high-speed centrifuge to spin and slice fruit and vegetables around at high speed. As you might imagine, this tends to require a fairly noisy motor. The Hurom H-AA Slow Juicer overcomes this problem with a much quieter pressing motion against the produce being juiced.
The Flaws Of The Hurom H-AA
The Horum Slow Juicer does have its shortcomings, however. Its main drawback is that it has a fairly complicated design that can be hard to figure out and get to work at first. Additionally, there’s a relatively high number of hand wash only accessories, making this juicer harder to clean out than others of its kind. This specific model of cold press slow juicer also has a hard time squeezing juice from leafy greens, which are becoming increasingly popular on the health food scene.
Finally, this particular model of juicer is among the most costly of its type, and while the company’s customers don’t seem to mind, the fact is that this juice is a bit on the pricey side.
Is This Juicer Worth The Cost?
So here, we come to the all important question. A good juicer is never too expensive, but there are plenty of expensive juicers if you know what I mean!
In this case, you’re getting a fairly solid juicer. It is more expensive than others of a similar style, but Horum is a dependable brand. The hand-wash only pieces are obnoxious, but the trade-off is that you know you’re getting quality juicing action.
Still, at that price point, it’s understandable if someone gets a cheaper juicer. Not everyone can afford to pay for that level of dependability. If you can afford it, however, then you should go for it
