Hamilton Beach Juicer: Big Mouth Juice Extractor, black

Hamilton Beach juicers are one of the most affordable juice extractors in the market. What I like about this particular model is it doesn’t scream cheap.

You can get the Hamilton Beach Big Mouth Juice Extractor in either of these two colors—black (67601) or white (67602A).

The difference between this model and the Big Mouth Pro are the following:

  • Complimentary 20-ounce plastic juice cup
  • The locking arm mechanism is made of plastic
  • Available colors
  • Switch used

You’ll have to use your own glass to catch your juice. Since the spout has high clearance, I bet any standard glass would do just fine.

Similar with high-end fast juicers, this machine features a 3-inch wide feeding chute with extra large pulp bin for an uninterrupted juicing experience. If you’re just starting out and want to try out a few recipes, this can be a great starting ground. It has a powerful 800-watt motor that can process hard produce and citrus fruits.

Pros

  • Hamilton Beach Big Mouth is affordable
  • 3-inch wide feeding chute
  • External pulp collection for continuous juicing
  • Centrifugal juicers are fast, it can juice a whole apple in just 3 seconds
  • 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

Hamilton Beach Juicer Features

Is Hamilton Beach Big Mouth easy to use?

You’ll find the Hamilton Beach juicer very user-friendly, it has fewer parts to assemble and disassemble. You can easily get the hang of high-speed juicers as compared to cold press juicers.

It has an extra wide feeding chute where you can put a whole apple or carrot, adding an extra level of convenience. You don’t need to chop your produce but you may still have to consider removing seeds, peel, and pits. These inedible parts may alter the taste of your juice.

Having an external pulp ejection system with an extra large pulp container means that you can juice for 30 minutes without worrying about the pulp.

Is the Hamilton Beach Juice Extractor easy to clean?

You can put all the removable parts of this electric juicer in the top rack of your dishwasher. However, it will take just a few minutes if you prefer washing it by hand.

You’ll find the pulp bin and the cutting disk/mesh strainer assembly a little bit challenging. As a rule of the thumb, you’ll have to wash your juice maker right away to prevent the build-up of sediments.

Here are a few tips to make your cleanup even easier.

  • Put a plastic bag in the pulp bin, once you’re done juicing just take the plastic bag to discard your pulp
  • As long as you’re done juicing rinse off the strainer basket under running water then use your complimentary cleaning brush to remove any pulp residue.

Juice Quality

Centrifugal juicers are fast but juice quality is a huge trade-off but as long as you drink your juice right away you’ll still enjoy its maximum nutritional value.

Otherwise, if you want to store it and consume it in a later time, you only have 24 hours before it spoils. This is because high-speed juicers promote oxidation (breakdown of nutrients, enzymes, minerals, vitamins) at a higher level compared to slow juicing machines.

What kinds of produce can the Hamilton Beach Big Mouth Juicer process?

Hamilton Beach Big Mouth 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.

Fennel, bitter gourd, garlic, asparagus, celery, pear, cauliflower, turmeric, carrots, cilantro, beets, apple, pumpkin, pepper, pineapple, yakon, sweet potato, broccoli, cucumber, ginger, and watermelon are some of the hard fruits and vegetables it can process.

You can also process citrus fruits include tangerine, orange, lemon, grapefruit, mandarin, and lime with this Hamilton Beach juicer.

However, one-speed centrifugal juice makers are not ideal for soft fruits, herbs, wheatgrass, pine tree needles, and it won’t help you make soy and almond milk.

Is Hamilton Beach Juicer worth it?

Hamilton Beach Big Mouth Juice Extractor is a great budget electric juicer. It’s perfect if you’re just getting started. You’ll find it very easy to use and clean, packed with a powerful 800-watt motor.

However, it falls short on juice quality and you’re pretty much limited to juicing dense produce and citrus fruits. Still, considering the price versus the functionality, your money will be well spent on this juice extractor.
