Kuvings Chef CS600

The Kuvings Commercial Whole Slow Juicer CHEF CS600 is an exciting product from the Korean kitchen equipment manufacturer. It’s currently the only commercial grade vertical masticating juice extractor in the market. If I were to have a juice bar, my store countertop would have a couple or more of this fantastic machine.

And this is just the beginning for the CHEF Series. There are two more upcoming models in this pro line up: the Kuvings Master Chef CS700, and the Kuvings Whole Slow Juicer Pro CS520SM.

This machine comes with an industrial grade motor which enables it to operate continuously for 24 hours. It can extract juice from fruits and vegetables more than your store’s business hours. That is one h*** of a business proposition. If that’s the case, I bet you’ll have to keep your juice bar open 24/7.

The Kuvings Chef CS600 juicer can handle all types of produce. You won’t need to cut your fruits and veggies into small pieces; it can crunch larger portions with its large chute profile and drum design. Some foods without large pits won’t even need a precutting.

However, it would be advisable to use the smaller chute for fibrous produce and leafy greens. Doing this will maximize the juice yield and preserve the integrity of the juicer.

As an additional convenience, it also comes with an extra top set which will allow a quick transition between recipes. Your team can rinse the upper assembly for the next recipe.

Features & Product Details

Is it Easy to Use?

CHEF CS600 Juicer was optimized for business application. It may sound complex, but it’s not that difficult to use. It works the same way as a typical household juicer. Kuvings just replaced the motor with an industrial one and made it more durable to withstand prolonged usage. That’s all there is to it.

Is it Easy to Clean?

For the record, this machine is not dishwasher safe, but it’s pretty much easy to clean. The extra top set has an advantage. Your staff can rinse the used part and have it ready for the next recipe. The pulp build-up needs to be cleared out to ensure maximum juice yield.

When closing your shop, you need to clean it thoroughly. Have your team prepare warm water with generous amounts of dishwashing soap or baking soda; it’s all up to you. Soak the detachable parts for 30 minutes, then gently scrub it to remove excess pulp.

Juice Quality

Slow juicers are the gold standard of juice quality. In addition to that, Kuvings CHEF CS600 also excels in juice extraction efficiency. These characteristics, along with its stunning design make it stand out from all other commercial juice extractors. Your customers will surely enjoy the best tasting and nutrition-filled juice out of this machine.

What Kinds of Produce Can it Juice?

This juice press can handle all types of produce—soft and hard produce, leafy greens, citrus fruits, beans, and nuts alike.

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

Leafy greens include brussels sprout, pine tree needles, kale, collard greens, cabbage, spinach, parsley, spring onion, moringa, basil, dandelion greens, wheatgrass, peppermint, lettuce and beet greens.

Use the small feeding chute for fibrous produce and leafy greens. Cut the carrots, celery, leafy greens, and other tough fruits and veggies lengthwise to maximize juice extraction efficiency.

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

You can also puree soft produce such as grapes, blackberry, mango, melon, kiwifruit, papaya, tomato, peach, avocado, strawberry, pomegranate and cranberries using this machine. Just don’t forget to remove the pits and seeds when the situation calls for it.

You can further expand your healthy drink menu by offering non-dairy milk alternatives. You can usually make nut milk out of a slow juicer, provided the nuts and beans have been soaked over night.

Verdict

The Kuvings Commercial Whole Slow Juicer CHEF CS600 isn’t cheap. It’s not intended for household use to begin with. But in comparison, it’s as expensive as the Angel Juicer.

I’m not going through all those nice features in this wrap-up. I want to end this on a note that the Kuvings Chef CS600 is the best investment for nutrition-oriented restaurants and juice bars.
