Hamilton Beach HealthSmart Juice Extractor
Hamilton Beach HealthSmart Juice Extractor

Hamilton Beach Health Smart Juicer is one of the cheapest, most affordable juicers in the market. What makes it rock bottom cheap is it’s fully constructed with plastic except for the motor and the stainless steel cutter/strainer.

It doesn’t include a pulp container which means that you’ll have to have your very own juice collector, but any standard glass will do.

This juicer is packed with a 400-watt motor can help you juice any hard produce and citrus fruits but it’s not an ideal machine for making green juices.

The Health Smart Series comes in three colors, black (67601), white & grey (67804), full white (67800).

It’s also worth noting that the feeding chute diameter is 2 inches, which is smaller than it’s Hamilton Beach’s Big Mouth series. Though it’s not 3 inches wide it can still accommodate larger pieces of fruits.

It will still save you some time than chopping your fruits and veggies into small pieces as with masticating juicers.

Pros

  • Inexpensive
  • Compact
  • External pulp collection for continuous juicing
  • Fast juice processing
  • Dishwasher safe parts

Cons

  • Noisy
  • Not BPA free
  • You’re limited to juicing hard produce and citrus fruits
  • 24-hour shelf life
  • Not heavy duty
  • 2-inch feeding chute, smaller compared to popular fast juicers

Hamilton Beach Health Smart Features & Product Details

Is it easy to use?

With fewer parts to assemble and disassemble, this juicing machine was designed to be user-friendly. The chute opening is 2 inch in diameter saving you a significant amount of time when preparing your produce.

Instead of chopping your fruits and veggies into small pieces as with masticating and triturating juicers, you just need to cut your apple into four pieces and other produce into generous sizes.

Having an external pulp ejection system it will give you the ability to juice continuously.

Is Hamilton Beach Health Smart Juicer easy to clean?

The good news is all plastic parts of this electric juicer are dishwasher safe except for the motor base. If you prefer washing by hand and air drying it will just take a few minutes.

The most difficult part to clean for most high-speed juicers is the cutting disk or cutter/strainer. It’s the part that is prone to pulp build up especially if you don’t wash it right away.

For an added convenience put a plastic bag in the pulp bin, when you’re done juicing discarding the fibers will be as easy as taking the plastic out.

Juice Quality

One thing that I’m not impressed with centrifugal juicers is the quality of the juice. It can only offer 24-hour shelf life because of the amount of oxidation happening in a high RPM machine.

In addition, the plastic parts of Hamilton Beach Health Smart Juicer are not BPA free. Bisphenol A is commonly found in plastic which has been linked to causing several diseases including cancer.

This defeats the purpose of juicing. If you’re not concerned about that, this is not going to be an issue. For reference here’s a list of BPA free juicers.

What kinds of produce can the Hamilton Beach Health Smart Juice Extractor process?

This Health Smart juicer will work best on any hard produce and citrus fruits only. You can try processing leafy greens but you won’t get as much yield as you would get with cold press juicers.

Hard produce includes cucumber, carrots, pepper, pumpkin, sweet potato, pear, garlic, asparagus, yakon, pineapple, apple, broccoli, celery, fennel, ginger, watermelon, cauliflower, cilantro, beets, turmeric, and bitter gourd.

Citrus fruits include tangerine, orange, lemon, mandarin, lime, and grapefruit.

One speed juicers are also not ideal for soft fruits, herbs, wheatgrass, pine tree needles, and it won’t help you make soy and almond milk.
