  Vitality Plus Juice Extractor Test

The Vitality Plus Juice Extractor Test

We have just completed
our testing

of eight of the most popular
juice extractors.

Each juice extractor was tested with
2½ lbs of carrots and 2 lbs of spinach.


Model Carrots (oz.) Spinach (oz.) Cleanup Time Type Comments
Breville 800 Elite
16.5 13 5.5 min. Spinning Basket, High Speed The loudest one tested and one of the fastest. Large feeding chute. Good output of carrot juice w/dry pulp, very poor with Spinach (very wet pulp).
Juiceman JM418SS
16 15 7 min. Spinning Basket, High Speed The most efficient of all the high speed machines tested but the longest to clean. Good output of carrot juice w/dry pulp, poor with Spinach (very wet pulp).
Omega 4000
14 14 6.75 min. Spinning Basket, High Speed Fair output of carrot juice w/wet pulp, very poor with Spinach (very wet pulp).
L’ Equip 221
12 13 5.5 min. Spinning Basket, High Speed One of the least efficient machines tested. Poor output of carrot juice w/wet pulp, very poor with Spinach (very wet pulp).
Jack LaLanne Power Juicer
12 12 7 min. Spinning Basket, High Speed The least efficient of all the high speed machines tested. One of the hardest to clean. Large feeding chute. Poor output of carrot juice w/wet pulp, very poor with Spinach (very wet pulp).
Champion 2000+
15 14 4 min. Spinning Cone, High Speed Machine did tend to vibrate somewhat. Good output of carrot juice w/moist pulp, very poor with Spinach (very wet pulp). This juicer produced a lot of foam doing Spinach (see bottom photo to left). This did cleanup in a short amount of time 4 min.
Green Star 2000
16 21 5.75 min. Twin Gear, Low Speed Overall we felt this was the most efficient unit tested. This and Solostar were the quietest ones. Good output of carrot juice w/dry pulp, very good with Spinach (moist pulp). We did use olive oil on the gears to hold foaming down when juicing just spinach.
Solostar II
15.4 20 3.5 min. Single Gear, Low Speed Overall we felt this was the second most efficient unit tested. This and Green Star were the quietest ones. Good output of carrot juice w/dry pulp, very good with Spinach (moist pulp). This was the easiest juicer to clean (using a SS brush).

As you can tell from the tests above the carrot juice yield was from 12 - 16.5 ounces and the spinach juice yield was from 12 – 21 ounces. When you’re buying organic produce (recommended) you want to get as much out of it as possible due to costs. We always highly recommend green leafy produce in the juice diet since it is very nutritious. Carrot is sweet and when mixed with green drinks it makes for a tasty and highly nutritional drink.
We found that the advantages with high speed juicers are they would juice a bit faster than the twin gear units and you could put larger pieces of fruit or vegetables in them. If you must buy a high speed machine the Juiceman MJ418SS is the one to go with for the money. We don’t really recommend any high speed machine because they do a very poor job with green leafy and they don’t do wheat grass. Our top two choices for juicers are the Green Star 2000 & Solostar II. We have found the juice coming out of the crushing type juicers to be of higher quality and it tasted better too.
Note: INote: If you are planning to buy a Sampson Ultra, Kempo or Hippocrates Juicer see (Click Here) this page first.first.
Note: If you are planning to buy a Marathon Twin Health Juicer see (Click Here) this page first.

After the juicing test we put the carrot juice in 8 oz. canning jars (filled to the top). We wanted to see which juice held it nice bright, uniform orange color (after being shaken up).

(Click on the photo above to see a full size version.)
We tested juice from the Green Star 2000, Breville 800 Elite, Omega 4000 and Champion 2000+. After a few days the juice from all the high speed machines all were noticeably deteriorating, they had streaks and larger pieces floating around. The juice in the Green Star 2000 looked as good as it did when we filled the jar. I am now totally convinced all the oxidation and friction from high speed machines turns the juice bad faster than the slow turning machines like Green Star and Solostar. Many people want to keep juice for several days at a time and it appears like juice from crushing, slow speed machines will hold up longer.
