I’ve been waiting for a proper juice extractor from the brand, and the Nutribullet Slow Juicer is all that I hoped for. It’s a well-designed product that I can finally recommend to my readers.

If you’ve read my review of the first Nutribullet Juicer, I didn’t really give it a passing mark. But this one is different. All I have is praises. When I first saw it, I almost have mistaken it for a Hurom juicer.

Hurom H200 is the product to beat. Maybe the Nutribullet Slow Juicer might have a winning chance, considering how affordable it is.

One fantastic feature the Nutribullet Slow Juicer has is its 3-inch feeding chute. It’s like having the best of both worlds—having the convenience of a centrifugal juice extractor’s wide chute and the efficiency of a cold press juicing machine.

In the meantime, let’s go over its pros and cons.

PROS

  • Minimalist design
  • Affordable
  • 3-inch feeding chute, less prep time required
  • Has a quiet motor
  • Excels in juice extraction efficiency and nutrient retention
  • Made with BPA-free materials
  • Dishwasher safe parts
  • 72 hours juice life

CONS

  • Slow juice extraction time
  • Short warranty coverage

Features

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.

Cold press 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 wide feeder and higher revolutions per minute (RPM).

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.

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.

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.

Juice Quality

At 65 RPM, the Nutribullet Cold Press Juicer extracts juice at a more efficient rate than high-speed juicing machines. It produces more volume, and at the same time, a cold-pressed juice retains more nutrients.

So, 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.

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.

Since it doesn’t have a secondary pulp filter with bigger holes, it’s not intended to process soft mushy fruits like avocado, banana or peaches. These items are basically non-juicable, which are better blended rather than juiced.

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

Making pulp-free citrus juice with lemon, orange, mandarin, tangerine, lime, or grapefruit is a walk in the park for this 3-inch chute slow juicer. It would be ideal to remove the seeds and rinds for better flavor and to prevent damaging your machine.

Leafy greens like cabbage, spinach, pine tree needles, collard greens, lettuce, spring onion, basil, wheatgrass, beet greens, brussels sprout, dandelion greens, kale, moringa, peppermint, and parsley are also no match to this Nutribullet juicer.
