I’ve been waiting for a proper juice extractor from the brand, and the Nutribullet Slow Juicer doesn’t disappoint. It’s a well-designed product that I have no problem recommending to my readers.
Hurom H200 is the product to beat. The Nutribullet Slow Juicer might have a winning chance, considering its affordability. Below we’ll look at how this Nutribullet Slow Juicer stacks up.
In addition to the wide feeding chute and dishwasher-safe removable parts, I love that this juicer has low RPMs for less oxidation. It is one reason the juice I made with the Nutribullet Slow Juicer easily lasted 3 days in the fridge. This is because of the slow mastication juicing process.
It has a low-speed but high-torque steel-tipped auger that powers through produce like nobody’s business. It has low horsepower, but that also means it is quieter than many other slow juicers.
Here are a few of the stand-out features of the Nutribullet Slow Juicer.
This slow juicer features a 3-inch wide chute. That’s large enough to juice an entire apple without slicing it.
This chute width is a relatively newer feature of the vertical masticating juicers, which is one reason for their popularity.
Wide chutes equal less time prepping and chopping your produce, which makes the process easier. And the easier the process, the more likely you are to use your juicer. There is nothing worse than an expensive juicer that stays in your cabinet!
But while the chute is large enough to toss in a whole apple, I don’t recommend it. I got less pulp and better quality juice by cutting them into quarters. Also, don’t try to juice anything with a hard seed or core even if it fits in the chute!
You don’t need a lot of counter space to use this juicer. It has a very small footprint – just 7 inches by 6.25 inches. However, it stands 17 inches tall when fully assembled, so you won’t be able to just leave it on your counter under the cabinet.
It does have an almost 40-inch long cord, so you can plug it into an available outlet and stretch it to wherever you need it for easy and convenient operation. It has convenient cord storage at the back to accommodate the long cord.
No Drip Spout
On less expensive juicers, you have to quickly replace one cup with another. Not so with this juicer!
Another great reason I like this spout design is that it allows juices from multiple types of produce to mix better before pouring.
The no-drip spout is a must-have for higher-end vertical juicers. And the Nutribullet checks off this box!
The drip-free spout works best with the included juice cup, but you can use any cup or pitcher with the juicer if you so choose.
The drip-free spout will still leak if you don’t move quickly enough. It is also important to get it completely sealed before you remove the juice cup to empty into your pitcher and replace or you will get a mess on your counter.

What Kinds of Produce Can Nutribullet Slow Juicer Process?
The Nutribullet Slow Juice Extractor can take on most types of fruits and veggies. It can juice dense produce, citruses, and leafy greens. On top of that, it’s also capable of making nut-based milk alternatives. Recipes vary, but I’ve found that freshly made almond milk from this slow juicer lasts about 4-5 days.
The Nutribullet is not intended to process soft mushy fruits like avocados, bananas, or peaches. These items are non-juicable anyway. They are better blended rather than juiced.
Here is a detailed list of the produce you can process with the Nutribullet Slow Juicer.
|Dense Produce||Citrus Fruits||Leafy Greens|
pine tree needles
When it comes to juicing citrus fruits, I highly recommend that you remove seeds and most of the rinds. It will reduce pulp, give you better flavor, and prevent damaging your machine. You might still want to include a bit of the rind in your juice. According to Healthline, 1 tablespoon of orange peel contains three times as much Vitamin C as the inner fruit.
It is also important to note that you can’t juice frozen produce unless you fully thaw it first.
Is Nutribullet Slow Juicer easy to use?
Nutribullet Cold Press Juicer only has six parts to put together. That is surprisingly fewer than other vertical slow juicers in the market. Then, all that’s left is setting the pulp and juice collector in place, turning the motor on, and getting the juices flowing.
Juicing a variety of produce can be somewhat tricky. The auger stops when you open the chute for safety reasons. If you don’t want to mix juices, you’ll need to make sure that the previous produce is fully juiced before cleaning and moving on. If you want to mix juices, then just toss in the next item and keep juicing!
Pulp Not As Dry As With Horizontal Masticating Juicers
The pulp from this juicer isn’t as dry as you’ll get from a horizontal slow-masticating juicer, but you will be able to see that you are getting most of the nutrients and juice from the produce. If you juice too quickly some of that pulp or foaming could be seen at the top of your finished juice.
In short, even though this is a powerful juicer, you need to take your time to get the most out of your ingredients.
Nutribullet Slow Juicer vs Centrifugal Juicers
The Nutribullet Slow Juicer is part of a family of juicers called Masticating Juicers. They are generally more popular than centrifugal juicers although each has its plusses and minuses.
Slow juicers are generally slow. It will take about a few minutes to make a glass of juice, starting from dicing your produce to the juice extraction process itself.
Centrifugal juice extractors, on the other hand, can do the same thing in a few seconds. There’s no need to chop most of your fruits and veggies due to the (generally) wide feeder and higher revolutions per minute (RPM).
Here are some other differences between the Nutribullet Slow Juicer and centrifugal juice extractors:
- Slow juicers have motors with less than 100 RPMs (the Nutribullet has a 65 RPM motor), while centrifugal juice extractors run at thousands of RPMs.
- Centrifugal juicers add oxidation to the juice, reducing its shelf life to about 24 hours, compared to the Nutribullet Slow Juicer which produces juice that lasts up to 3 days in the fridge. (Mine lasted a bit longer, but every dedicated juice drinker knows you finish it before it goes bad regardless.)
- The Nutribullet Slow Juicer runs at just 150 watts, while centrifugal juice extractors use more electricity at about 700 watts.
- Slow juicers usually require the dicing of produce, while centrifugal juicers can be used with little to no knife work.
But guess what? The Nutribullet Slow Juicer has a 3-inch feeding chute. It will save you a ton of time prepping your produce. You don’t need to dice your fruits and veggies into 1 to 2-inch sections like a standard vertical slow juicer.
To sum this section up, this juicing machine is easier to use than the competition.
At 65 RPM, the Nutribullet Cold Press Juicer yields more juice than high-speed juicing machines. It produces more volume, and at the same time, cold-pressed juice retains more nutrients.
In terms of juice quality, this particular juicer is on the better end of the spectrum. Juice extracted by slow juicers lasts for at least three days. That’s quite significant considering that drinks made by centrifugal-type juicers have a shorter shelf life of just 24 hours.
The main culprit behind this wide shelf-life margin is oxidation. It’s the same thing that happens when you peel an apple and leave it exposed to air, light, and heat. With slow RPM juicers, oxidation is pretty minimal.
The one thing I’d like to say about the juice quality of the Nutribullet slow juicer in particular is that you will see some foam or pulp on the surface of your finished juice if you juice too quickly or don’t cut down your produce somewhat.
That said, the wide chute does make it so that you don’t have to cut it down to 1-inch chunks like other juicers.
Is it easy to clean?
Except for the motor base and auger, most of the Nutribullet Slow Juicer’s parts are top-rack dishwasher safe. The motor base only requires a quick wipe using a damp cloth.
For best results, it would be ideal to rinse all the components with warm and soapy water. There’s an included brush with your purchase. You can use it to brush off the fibers from the juicing screen. Be careful, though, as it’s sharp.
I guess cleaning up the whole juicer would only take you three to five minutes. I’m not sure about you, but for me, it’s not that big of a deal.
It is important to clean the juicer immediately after juicing. You’ll have a much harder time getting the juicer clean if you let it sit long enough for the pulp to dry on. Make sure all pulp is rinsed free before putting it in the dishwasher, and avoid letting the dry heat cycle run to ensure that this pulp doesn’t get stuck on even worse.

The Nutribullet Cold Press Juicer is a new product. I will update this section once its video becomes available
The Nutribullet Slow Juicer is a vertical cold press juicer. With a 150-watt motor running at 65 RPM, it extracts juice at a more efficient rate. It’s a fantastic machine for green juices, beet juices, celery juices, etc. The most outstanding feature of the Nutribullet Slow Juicer is its 3-inch feeding chute.
Is Nutribullet Slow Juicer worth it?
The Nutribullet Slow Juicer earned my seal of approval. I would recommend it to anyone, whether you’re just getting started or have been juicing for years. It’s a highly affordable juicer that doesn’t disappoint on functionality. However, if you can afford it, I recommend the Hurom juicer much more.
