Oscar Vital Max Juicer - top

Vital Max is a recent innovation from the original inventor of the single gear juice extraction process. The Vital Max is the perfect bridge between a single and twin gear juicer.

Vital Max has a newly patented two-step auger crushing system which provides the maximum pulp free juice. The Vital Max has a pulp adjustment control similar to the Green Power juicers and Samson juicers - now you can control the pressure inside the machine while you are juicing. The Vital Max comes with separate fruit and vegetable screens.

What makes Vital Max so good
– the single gear juicer with the twin gear features

  • Vital Max utilises a two step ‘propeller’ auger, rotating at a slow 75 rpm which ensures a living juice without any loss of enzymes or nutrients.
  • The Vital Max has a fully adjustable juicing pressure mechanism at the front of the machine which allows you to adjust pressure inside the machine while you are juicing.
  • The development of separate fruit and vegetable juicing screens means you can juice any type of produce with the Vital Max, from the most fibrous vegetable to the softest fruits. (Produces a wet pulp.)
  • Also called Omega 8005 in the USA
  • Made in Korea

More Juicing Tips - for Cold Press Juicers - top

JUICERS AUSTRALIA Never put the pulp back into the juicer, it will damage the juicing screen and makes void the warranty!

JUICERS AUSTRALIA The emphasis of cold press juicers is to produce a high quality juice. This is accomplished by 1) cutting hard produce into smaller strips / pieces 2) and juicing slowly. Although patience is essential, the rewards are really fantastic.

JUICERS AUSTRALIA Cold press juicers are excellent for juicing vegetables or a combination of vegetable and some fruit.

JUICERS AUSTRALIA Cold press juicers are really good at juicing wheat grass, but you must feed wheatgrass through the juicer very slowly, or congestion WILL occur.

JUICERS AUSTRALIA Cold press juicers often struggle with soft fruit such as watermelon and especially pineapple . (The LifeSpring Slow Juicer copes with sloppy fruit the best; followed by the LexSun Standard Juicer, LexSun Elite Juicer and the GreenPower Kempo Juicer. The Angel Juicer really struggles with sloppy fruit and fruit in general, although the optional Soft Fibre Screen does help.)

JUICERS AUSTRALIA When juicing a lot of soft fruit such as pineapple or watermelon, simply feed the pieces through slower and be patient. Adding some carrot, beetroot or celery also helps prevent clogging.

JUICERS AUSTRALIA When juicing apples, Granny Smith apples (or similar) are best, as they are a hard fruit and contain more juice. Some varieties of red apples are not suitable for cold press juicers (or high speed juicers) as they have a dry consistency, which results in a mushy pulp, little juice and clogged juicing screen.

JUICERS AUSTRALIA Fibrous produce such as kale & celery can be very difficult to juice. Tip: 1) Use young leaves, 2) Feed very slowly through your juicer, 3) omit the fibrous stalks and 4) add carrot intermittently to clear any blockages / congestion that may occur.

JUICERS AUSTRALIA Cleanliness: It is essential that your juicer be properly cleaned and maintained for normal use. The small holes in the Juicing Screen must be thoroughly cleaned and unblocked; otherwise unnecessary harm can be caused to the gearbox and motor, and juicing will be slower and more difficult. Juice backing up the chute? In 99.9% of the cases where the juice backs up the chute and the juicer is not operating as good as it once was, it is because the tiny holes on the juicing screen have become progressively clogged after repeated use, and normal washing is not always sufficient to remove the pulp. Solution: Soak the part/s in a dessertspoon of Ezy Kleen powder and warm / hot water overnight; rinse in water the following morning and the juicer will usually operate just like new. Ezy Kleen can be purchased here.


Difficult to Juice Items and Making Ice-Cream Warning
 

Warning!JUICERS AUSTRALIA Juicing sugarcane - cold press juicers should NEVER be used to juice sugarcane under normal circumstances. Sugarcane is extremely fibrous and tough and WILL destroy your cold press juicer if you feed sugarcane as lumps, pieces or even strips. EXCEPTION: The only acceptable method of juicing sugarcane with a cold press juicer is to cut the outer husk etc off the sugarcane, then blend the sugarcane in a blender such as the LexSun Professional Blender, until it has become a smoother consistency, then slowly pour through your cold press juicer so that it can separate the juice from the pulp. If your juicer struggles or groans whilst juicing sugarcane, either feed the blended sugarcane more slowly, or stop juicing sugarcane altogether.

JUICERS AUSTRALIA Juicing coconut - should NEVER be used to juice coconut under normal circumstances. However, coconut can be juiced if you follow the instructions for juicing sugarcane above

JUICERS AUSTRALIA Juicing pomegranate - although cold press juicers can juice pomegranate, the seeds must be removed first or damage to the juicer can ensue.

JUICERS AUSTRALIA Making ice-cream - most cold press juicers are capable of making ice-cream and sorbet etc. A common mistake is to take frozen bananas and strawberries straight from the freezer and put them down the chute, which in most cases results in breakage of the juicer. Putting frozen food down the chute is like putting rocks in your juicer, DO NOT DO IT! To prevent damaging your cold press juicer, let your frozen fruit unfreeze a little so that it loses its 'rock like' features.

"Cold Press Juicers" Versus "High Speed Centrifugal Juicers"© - top

High Speed Centrifugal Juicers ~ 1,000 rpm to 30,000 rpm:

I love readingMost juicers available through retail outlets (e.g. Panasonic, Breville, Black & Decker, Waring Health, Acme, Omega 4000, Jack LaLanne etc) are 'high speed centrifugal juicers', with speeds ranging between 1,000 rpm through to 30,000 rpm. Their main purpose is to produce juice as fast as possible, by cutting / shredding your produce at extremely high speeds. The result is generally an oxygenated juice that is heated at a molecular level, subsequently shortening the life of the juice to varying degrees. Most high speed juicers require regular pulp removal and cleaning, which can be annoying.

High speed centrifugal juicers are not true juice extractors, as the resultant juice also contains finely cut / shredded produce 'blended' into it, often giving the illusion of a higher juice extraction rate. Thus many 'high speed centrifugal juicers' are in reality a cross between a 'juice extractor / blender.' Although they cannot extract a 'living juice', they certainly can produce a "fast food" juice. High speed centrifugal juicers tend to suit busy people or 'beginners' who are happy with a basic quality blended juice.


Cold press juicersCold Press Masticating Juicers ~ Up to 200 rpm:

We chew our food at about 30 to 60 chews per minute via a cold press masticating process, thus insuring maximum nutrient availability. If our mouths were to imitate high speed centrifugal juicers, we would be chewing at an incredible 1,000 to 30,000 bites per minute... That is rather unnatural.

Some discerning customers insist on using only 'Cold Press Juicers' with speeds ranging from 70 to 200 rpm. Cold press juicers are purpose built machines that extract a high quality 'living juice' for maximum well-being.


Dr Sandra Cabot juicers
Dr Sandra Cabot

Cold press juicers are genuine juice extractors that literally extract juice from your produce via a slow speed pressing action, e.g. 'cold press' masticating process.

Because the nutrients are preserved, the juice tastes stronger (much better) and has a much longer shelf-life (especially when refrigerated). These cold press juicers are especially appealing to health enthusiasts, sports people, convalescing patients and the elderly, as recommended by Dr Sandra Cabot.

Survival Food - Grass Juice - top

Many people have been stranded in remote locations and died of starvation, despite being surrounded by various edible foods such as many seaweeds etc.

One frequently overlooked wild food that grows in abundance in so many places - is good old grass!

A major reason given for not using grass as a survival food, is because humans do not have a rumen to digest the grass properly.  But there is another method of extracting the many beneficial nutrients from grass, and that is via a cold press juice extractor. In fact one of the greatest survival tools you could ever own, is a cold press manual juicer, which is perfect for those uncertain times when there is no electricity available.

During times of strikes, pestilence, famine and even war, in most places there is an abundance of grass beneath our feet.  This information may just save your life one day, because although all food supplies may disappear, grass juice can keep you going for quite some time, at least until help arrives, or you are rescued etc.

One upside of living on grass juice for extended periods of time is that you will definitely look like an overachiever of the Jenny Craig program (weight loss program)!  You will also remain hydrated, which is essential to survival.

Juice oxidation comparison

Observations:

  1. The ambient room temperature was just 7 degrees Celsius, thus oxidation took much longer than usual;
  2. The first difference that we noticed was that the high speed Champion Juicer required about twice as many Granny Smith apples than the LexSun Standard Juicer, to make just one glass of juice, i.e. the LexSun Juicer extracts 100% more juice than the Champion Juicer;
  3. Secondly, the high speed juicer shredded the apples at a high speed, which caused a lot of finely shredded pulp to be mixed in with the juice, slightly similar to a blender;
  4. The Champion Juicer cutter operates at approximately 1,725 rpm, which is slower than most high speed juicers (usually range from 1,000 to 30,000 rpm);
  5. The LexSun Juicer auger (single gear) operates at just 80 rpm, which is an incredibly low speed;
  6. The oxidation process started very quickly with the juice from the High Speed Juicer and soon spread throughout the top 1/3rd of the juice. Within 60 minutes the oxidation was spreading much further;
  7. The juice from the Cold Press Juice Extractor eventually developed a very thin layer of oxidation on the top where the juice was exposed to the atmosphere; otherwise there was no oxidation throughout the rest of the juice;
  8. After 60 minutes the juice from the high speed juicer tasted much weaker than at the beginning and did not look very appetising;
  9. After 60 minutes the juice from the cold press juicer tasted the same as the beginning and still looked great!

Summary:

Cold press juice extractors are a specialty item and usually take longer at juicing compared to high speed juicers; however, the emphasis of cold press juicers is on 'quality', not speed. While the juice from a cold press juicer can be consumed immediately with all nutrients intact, it can also be stored in a refrigerator for days and still remain fresh and packed full of nutrients.

On the other hand, when juicing with a high speed juicer such as a Champion Juicer, it is imperative that you drink the juice immediately after juicing, while the juice is still 'alive.'

Despite the oxidation caused by high speed juicers (which is even worse with higher rpm machines), please keep in mind that it is definitely better to drink a mediocre juice, than none at all!



Cold Press Juicers Are more Nutritious - October 2007 - top

Independent tests have concluded that:

  • Non-centrifugal cold press juicers produce juice that lasts longer and contains more nutrients,
  • Non-centrifugal cold press juicers extract more nutrients - in some cases double or even three times more than centrifugal juicers! (e.g. double the calcium etc,)
  • Juice from non-centrifugal juicers still looked and smelt palatable after 48 hours,
  • Juice from non-centrifugal cold-press-style machines is more nutritious and stays fresh and tasty for up to 48 hours,
  • Non-centrifugal cold press juicers are easier to clean, do not have large bulky parts and are a great CHOICE for juicing.

Single Gear Juicers Versus Twin Gear Juicers - top

Single gear - aka augerSingle gear juicers have an auger (i.e. single gear) in the juicing chamber, which extracts a high quality 'living juice' in three simple stages:

  1. The auger takes a 'bite' of the fruit or vegetable with each revolution;
  2. it then crushes (cold press) the produce at a very low speed, thereby preserving the maximum amount of nutrients;
  3. and extracts an ultra high quality 'living juice.'

In summary, single gear juicers (i.e. the LexSun Elite Juicer or LifeSpring Slow Juicer):

  1. Are economical and parts are inexpensive to replace;
  2. are excellent for both beginners and experienced 'cold press juicing' advocates;
  3. extract almost the same quality juice as their 'twin gear' counterparts;
  4. have a slightly lower extraction rate than 'twin gear' juicers;
  5. parts generally will not last as long as the higher precision 'twin gear' juicers (i.e. the Angel Juicer / Greenpower Kempo Juicer).


Twin gear technologyTwin gear juicers have two gears (i.e. twin gear) in the juicing chamber, which extracts a high quality 'living juice' in three simple stages:

  1. The twin gears continually 'cut' the fruit or vegetables as the gears revolve;
  2. then crushes (cold press) the produce at a very low speed, thereby preserving the maximum amount of nutrients;
  3. and extracts an ultra high quality 'living juice.'

In summary, twin gear juicers (i.e. the Angel Juicer / Greenpower Kempo Juicer):

  1. Are higher precision machines utilising high quality stainless steel gears, hence are more expensive 'top shelf' units;
  2. are excellent for experienced 'cold press juicer' professionals;
  3. have a higher extraction rate than 'single gear' juicers;
  4. will last longer than the economy 'single gear' juicers.

Benefits of Juicing - top

It is recommended that you drink at least 250 ml's of fresh living juice each day:

Although eating fruits and vegetables in their natural state does provide a substantial amount of vitamins and minerals, much of their goodness is locked in the fibre which is expelled from your body. However, you can obtain additional benefits from them when they are juiced, especially with a quality: low r.p.m. - cold press type - non-centrifugal juicer.

When you juice fruits, vegetables and etc., their goodness is released from the fibre and you are able to drink their highly concentrated nutrients, which are then able to enter your bloodstream very quickly and efficiently.

For Maximum Benefit:

It is recommended that you swirl the juice around in your mouth a little, thereby mixing your living juice with your salvia, which aids in a more complete digestion. This is especially applicable to carrots, as in their normal state carrots require considerable chewing. Drinking fresh juice before a meal often reduces hunger at meal time.
