Quick Review of the Hurom HZ Juicer
The Hurom HZ Slow Juicer is boasts advanced juicing technology that’s to be expected of all juicers in the Hurom line. It has a stainless steel design and operates at 43 RPM, ensuring optimal juice extraction. The machine features an LED indicator for operational status, is constructed with BPA-free and durable Ultem plastic, and offers a 10-year warranty. Despite its many accessories and high-end features, it’s not dishwasher safe, requires extra prep due to a narrow chute, and like all Hurom juicers, is on the pricier side.

What I Like About the Hurom HZ Slow Juicer
It’s a Versatile Juicer
Like many vertical masticating juicers by Hurom, the Hurom HZ can make sorbets and nut milks.
In full disclosure, I don’t usually make nut milks when I test juicers, but decided to do so with this one. After soaking the almonds overnight, I rinsed them before adding back a bit of water and feeding them through the HZ. Let me tell you, fresh almond milk is very refreshing! And the Hurom HZ was able to render it without any problem.
One thing the HZ has that many Hurom juicers don’t, is a citrus attachment. The dome-shaped attachment hooks onto the HZ and turns it into a manual citrus juicer.
It also has an ice scream strainer attachment, which I did not test.
I Can Control the Pulp
The Hurom HZ features both course and fine strainers. This allows you to control the amount of pulp in your juice. So if you like a orange juice that’s rich in pulp, you can have it with the Hurom HZ.
Great Juice Quality
While not exclusive to the HZ, or to Hurom for that matter, the rendered juice is of exceptional quality. The reason is because it’s a slow masticating juicer that rotates at only 43 RPMs. That’s incredibly low; lower, in fact, that the new Hurom H400 model.
It is Well Built
All Hurom Juicers, and the HZ is no exception, are well-built juicing machines. You can tell by the materials, the fit, and finish. There are no loosely connected parts that rattle during operation. And the exterior is stainless steel. It doesn’t get much better than that.
It Has a 10-Year Warranty
The Hurom HZ, like all Hurom juicers, has a 10-year warranty on the motor and a 2-year warranty on all the parts. Here’s a tip: if you want to get an idea of the quality of something, look at how long the manufacturer backs the item with a warranty. A 10-year warranty is exceptionally long and only matched by a few other juicer manufacturers.
Things I Don’t Like About the Hurom HZ
It Has a Narrow Chute
Narrow chutes mean you have a lot of prep work to do prior to juicing. As someone who tests a lot of juicers, I’ve grown annoyed by those with narrow chutes. Because of the amount of prep work I have to do, it really disincentivizes me from juicing.
If you buy the HZ, know that you’ll be getting a very high-quality juicer. But you’ll be getting a very high-quality juicer with a small chute.
It’s Not Dishwasher Safe
The Hurom HZ is not dishwasher safe. Now this isn’t a big deal for me because I always hand-wash my appliances. But I know this can be a big pain for many of my readers, so that’s why I’ve included it here.
The HZ isn’t nearly as easy to clean as the Hurom H400. So it’ll require a bit of elbow-grease to clean the screens after juicing. But you can pour warm water down the chute after juicing to clean up most of the debris, which will make cleaning a bit easier.
The Hurom HZ is very expensive. In fact, it’s one of the more expensive juicers that still have a narrow chute. Many vertical masticating juicers at this price are going to have large chute or the chute will be replaced by a hopper and a self-feeding system. But that isn’t the case with the Hurom HZ.
