As a raw vegan, juicing has become a regular part of my life. It hasn’t always been easy but I’ve learned how to be successful at it through trial and error. I think the biggest complaint I’ve heard about juicing is using and cleaning the juicers. It can be a daunting job and I honestly don’t enjoy it either. I’ve had several different juicers each with their own pros and cons, some are quieter, some create more juice, some are lighter and some last longer. I’ve resigned myself to the idea that there is no juicer that fits all my needs, that is until I used the Juice Bullet.
The Juice Bullet has scores of attributes that deserve trumpeting! The first thing I read is that it’s BPA free so I don’t have to worry about poisonous toxins being leached into my juice. When I took the juicer out of the box I was surprised how lightweight it was. I’ve used other juicers that are too heavy and bulky to deal with so having a juicer that I can move easily is a really nice feature.
This juicer comes with the basic parts, the base, cover, filter, pulp container, feed tube pusher, bowl, guide, drip cap and a brush. This is the first time I’ve seen a brush included for cleaning the filter. I’ve always had to go out and buy a brush just for this purpose. It’s also really nice to have a drip cap to put on the end of the spout when you’ve finished juicing or if you’re in between making different juices. My counters and floors are a lot cleaner.
The unit was so easy to put together and to use. All the pieces fit together nicely and snuggly. It has five little rubber suction feet that keep the juicer balanced and secure from dancing all over the countertop. I’ve had juicers vibrate and move several inches when I tried to juice a hard vegetable because they lacked this feature.
The biggest thing I noticed is its very large feeding tube. Normally I have to cut up my fruits and veggies in order to get them through smaller tubes. I’ve saved so much time not having to chop and dice my produce. Another outstanding feature is the two speeds offered on the Juice Bullet. I’ve never seen more than one speed on the juicers I’ve used. The two speeds are powerful and very powerful. It literally juiced whole fruits and vegetables in seconds, this is because of its 700-watt motor. I’ve used juicers that promise a whisper-quiet motor which was far from reality. This juicer is not very loud; its sound is quite tolerable. It’s only on for a few minutes to create a large container of juice.
The pulp left was very dry so I know that it squeezed all the juicy nutrients it could out of my food. The finished product was sweet and delicious nectar. I also want to mention that the guide not only provides instructions and safety information, it also includes oodles of recipes you can try out. I love the Pineapple Mango Madness recipe.
Clean up is a breeze. I always put one of those clear produce bags you get at the grocery store in the pulp container so it makes cleaning up a lot easier. You simply remove it and put the pulp in your composter or discard it. All the pieces come apart and rinse easily.
With the product, you really can create healthy vibrant juices in seconds. It’s one of the best and easiest juicers I’ve used to date. My friend has a juicer she paid over $500 for and it does not work any better than the Juice Bullet. I’m also impressed with the price. You don’t have to spend hundreds of dollars to get a quality juicer. This one’s perfect!
