Product Description

The Healthy Juicer is primarily a wheatgrass juicer, but it can also accept leafy greens, as well as fibrous vegetables. For Wheatgrass advocates, this unit is an excellent traveling machine. It can attach to any smooth surface with the unique suction system or to the lip of a table with a clamp.. The Healthy Juicer takes just minutes to disassemble and clean. Simply rinse the parts with warm soapy water. Do not be misled by the low price of the Healthyjuicer. All parts of the juicer are made of tough Polycarbonate (Lexan) which is practically indestructible. The parts of the juicer that receive the most force (the tip of auger and the inside of the end cap) are made of stainless steel.

Features:
  • Compact, light weight Wheatgrass Juicer - great for travel
  • Patented suction base is rated at over 100lbs of force. It securely attaches to any smooth surface
  • Includes operating instructions on using your healthyjuicer (DVD is no longer included)
  • All parts of the juicer are made of extra tough Polycarbonate (Lexan) - non-toxic FDA approved
  • Manufactures Limited 1 Year Warranty

Customer Reviews:

  • Very Difficult and Unpleasant To Use!
    I bought it because the price was right, but this juicer is definitely wrong. I lack the upper-body strength of a weight-lifter (which is required to turn the crank) and the patience it takes to produce any juice at all. It makes a terrible mess and is annoying to assemble and disassemble. I WANT A REFUND (AND SOME BAND-AIDS, PLEASE)!...more info
  • with higher yield, I can grow less grass
    I've had the L'equip 509 Visor Juicer for around 6 months, and it did all right until I started juicing wheat grass. Now the machine's auger is bent and the end keeps popping off. I was going to buy a Sampson Kyoto, but I thought I'd try this little manual juicer. I figured I could always use it as a back up.

    This little gem is giving more juice yield than the Visor, doesn't seem to take any longer to juice, much easier to clean (the Visor cleans very easy), no foam, turns even slower than the electric models, and it is so quiet. I seem to have developed a nice little rhythm that is so peaceful, and I get to drink cool juice with no foam. Now, with higher yield, I can grow less grass, and save electricity. I know that it is not much, but...

    I'm going to buy another one of these Healthy Juicer - Wheatgrass and Vegetable Juicer, and now they've knocked another 10 bucks of it, so it is indeed a deal.

  • Fantastic!
    I am totally enamored by this juicer.For such a cheap price the product and function is amazing.There is something ineffable about this juicer which forces me to grow my own wheat grass and extract the juice.The juicer extracts every single drop of juice from the wheat grass.Anyone who wants to buy a wheat grass juicer I would suggest buying this instead of a fancy and an expensive one.Even though it is manual but all the work is worth it....more info
  • Awesome little juicer, most juice yield ive had
    I have had three different electric juicers, and never thought that a $45 little manual juicer would work better and be easier to clean up than my $250+ juicers. It gave me MUCH more juicer (for the amount of grass I used to use in my electrics, I get TWICE the yield using this little guy). Awesome Awesome Awesome!!! Thanks so much!...more info
  • Highly portable, I like it
    Four stars because the cup design a bit difficult and proprietary. If the cup is broken ur kinda up the creek, I don't see how anything found in the kitchen would make an instant replacement. The juicer was a little tough getting used to; I found I must reverse the crank often to encourage the juice into the cup, and I have this constant nagging feeling that I must be gentle with the juicer or it might break.

    Otherwise, I can use it ANYWHERE, even on a tree branch!(with a kind helper holding the cup). It works with most any softer, properly sized veggy or fruit....more info
  • Very Dissatisfied with This Product
    First, I am being extremely generous with three stars, however I have to take personal responsibility for how I couldn't even put the juicer together at all to begin with - so this is my fault.

    Now, the juicer is shipped with all of the loose parts right in the box. There is not any protective wrapping at all. I took out the parts and tried for half an hour to put this thing together and it just was not happening. So I got so fed up, that I just put the entire unused parts right back in the original box.

    Then I had to get an RMA number directly from the company - which they did send promptly via e-mail for the return - which HAS TO BE WITHIN 5 DAYS. I paid UPS to ship all original parts (it also has to be in the original box) back to the company.

    Then I receive an e-mail that says: "Barbara,

    Your return was received. However the juice cup is broken due to packaging. Everything else looks ok, and nice job cleaning it!

    Unfortunately, we will have to charge a $5.00 replacement part fee which we incur to get a replacement part for the juicer.

    We have credited your card $39.95.

    Was there another product we could help you find?"

    So I wrote back explaining that it was never used to begin with, (everything I said above about the original packaging, open parts with no protective packaging, etc.)

    I'm a really big believer in that you really do get what you pay for - especially in kitchen items.

    The actual juice cup is so small, you would have to chop all of the vegetables into very small pieces so they can fit without a problem, and then hand churn it all (if you're one of the fortunate ones that can put it together.)

    There's no way you can just throw in a stalk of celery or a whole carrot with this product.

    I would suggest a product made by Braun instead. I've been using specific items by Braun for 20 years now, still working perfectly. It might cost more to buy a better product, however, I think it's well worth it.

    I also suggest buying one in person, preferably already assembled, so there's not this headache.

  • Wheat grass juicer
    We had a bulky heavy steel juicer that did not do nearly as good a job of extracting as this lightweight model. This model secures tightly and easily to any non-porous surface. Highly recommended.......more info
  • Absolutely the WORST customer service
    I can not rate the juicer itself because here we are going on our second week and still no juicer has arrived. They have absolutely the WORST customer service in the world. They direclty lied to me telling me my shipment was on its way and would arrive within five business days. On the fifth day still no juicer. I then checked the ups.com web site and discovered that it has just been sent on the fifth day and should arrive within yet another week. I hope the juicer is better than the customer service. I will never buy a product from this company again. ...more info
  • Healthy Juicer, Wheatgrass Juicer
    Nice and compact, works very well, not only with Wheatgrass but other veggies if you chop them up into smaller pieces. Cleans up easily. ...more info
  • WORKS GREAT AND ITS CHEAP
    This product has worked just the way it should, resulting in the grass shot I need for my health. It was nice to find something so inexpensive....more info
  • Compact, efficient; hopper's a bit small (updated review)
    Pros:
    -----
    1. Very compact: It takes less counter/table space than a small plate. Most of the electrics (except the L'Equip mini and the Waring JEX 328) are major space hogs.

    2. Very efficient: Masticating juicers extract more juice than the centrifugal models. Perhaps more importantly, they do a better job of crushing tough plant cell walls and releasing enzymes - think minced garlic versus chopped garlic. (Whether or how much added health benefits this results in, depends on what you juice. It's hard to get good info on this, but plant enzymes typically help in breakdown and better absorption of nutrients.)

    3. Cheap (Check out their Ebay listing - it's $10 cheaper over there.) If you don't want to drop upwards of $250 on an electric masticating juicer, or aren't sure whether you'll stick to it, this one's worth a try.

    4. Easy to clean

    Cons:
    -----
    1. The hopper's a bit small, which means you'll be reloading frequently. This seems to be the trouble with masticating juicers in general (including the electrics), but the Z-star manual juicer (also available on amazon, though at twice the cost) has a somewhat bigger hopper.
    UPDATE: see effort section below.

    2. As I haven't used this long enough, I can't say how durable it is, though it seems very tough and well-made. (The auger tip and the surface it crushes against are both stainless steel, and all the rest is polycarbonate.)

    Juicing effort:
    ---------------
    Turning the handle: Effortless for leafy veggies, very little effort for carrots and firm veggies, provided you cut them into smaller pieces first. Don't expect to be able to throw a whole carrot or radish in. The reviewer that claims that you need to be a weightlifter to turn this thing was funny, but wildly off the mark.
    UPDATE: Curiously enough, on trying red cabbage, the juicer groans, esp. with largish pieces. I noticed that the juicing effort is quite sensitive to the size of the pieces - with smallish pieces, not only is less turning effort required, but the produce doesn't need pushing either. This lets you feed and crank the handle at the same time, making the process faster.
    All in all, though, this idiosyncracy counts as a negative point, and I'm lowering my rating to 4 stars.
    UPDATE 2: When juicing cabbage, drizzle a little bit of olive oil over the chopped cabbage - this completely eliminates the groaning (which happens due to friction between the rubbery leaves and the juicer body).

    Cleaning: better than the electrics in this department because of fewer parts and simpler design. Cleanup is a major part of juicing effort, so I count this as a pro.

    Cutting: For firm veggies, you'll have to cut them into smaller parts (no perfect julienne required; just a quick, sloppy chop would do.) Even so, this adds a little bit to the effort, so if you primarily want to juice firm veggies, you should look at an electric.

    Setup: Very easy (again, from the simpler design)....more info
  • Big Juice from Little Juicer
    My kids and I love this juicer. It's very high quality, and super easy to clean. It's also kid friendly. They love turning the handle and watching the juice come out. The base holds strong, so much that we don't need the clamp. We juiced our garden lettuce and greens with ease....more info
  • Highly portable, I like it
    Four stars because the cup design a bit difficult and proprietary. If the cup is broken ur kinda up the creek, I don't see how anything found in the kitchen would make an instant replacement.

  • Juicer was not suitable for juicing large quantities
    Juicer was packaged well, and shipped on schedule. For the type of use that I need, I need to have more advanced model....more info
  • Healthy juicer
    I prefer the manual powered juicer because I do a lot of camping. This one is tough and easy to clean and I did not need to rob a bank to afford it. Thanks it does a great job. ...more info
  • $50 down the drain. Stay away from this "juicer"
    I put the grass in carefully. The auger chews up the grass & NO JUICE comes out. Instead, just some green foam buildup in the auger chamber.

    A few green drops come out of the hole where the pulp is supposed to exit. When the pulp does come out it is somewhat soggy. I ran alot of grass through this and got less than a thimble full of juice out of the end where the juice is supposed to come out.

    I basically had to chew the pulp afterwards to get the juice out, I also had to run water through to get the green foam to drain out & drink it diluted. This thing really sucks.
    I got alot more juice from just putting grass through the blender....more info
  • yeah this thing pretty much sucks. juice doesn't seem to come ot of the front but the back, maybe i'm not using it right...
    juice doesn't seem to come ot of the front but the back, maybe i'm not using it right...doesn't matter now cause it's in the trash can. ...more info
  • Good investment for the money
    This machine puts out the juice. I was pessimistic at first based on the all mostly plastic parts, but this machine is solid! My only complaint is using it for wheatgrass. It takes
    quite a bit of those box types of wheatgrass you buy at the store. I think the juicer would be perfect for the leafy type greens and wheatgrass if the tube that processes it were of a smaller scale. It was excellent at crushing tomatoes and celery. Definitely would recommend this product to anyone wanting to make their own juice. Customer service is by far the best I have encountered on-line....more info
  • pretty good little juicer
    On my trial run into wheatgrass juice, I thought I could use our behemoth Champion juicer - NOT good for wheatgrass. So this little juicer was not a huge investment into something I might not use in the future. As it turns out, it's quite good for an introduction, and I imagine it could work quite well for a very long time. Sturdy construction, easy to clean. If you're going to be juicing for a large number of people, an electric one might make more sense, but a much bigger investment for good quality. This does a great job at a great price....more info
  • Juice Me Up!!
    For the money, the healthy Juicer works great!! This is the perfect item to get if you are just getting into the idea of juicing. There is no sense in spending hundreds of dollars only to have the juicer sit on your shelf or get sold at a garage sale for pennies on the dollar. The Healthy Juicer is easy to use and clean, and can crank out a decent amount of juice with a little bit of work. I like it best for wheatgrass. It extracts the liquid well without waste. If you are interested in just working with wheat grass, then this is an item you definitely want to purchase!!...more info
  • Great Juicer
    Great customer service. When I had an inquiry about the delivery method and date they were extremely prompt and courteous in their reply. The juicer itself works very well. I had it set up within a few minutes and was quickly turning out wheatgrass, kale, cucumber and ginger shots. I've only used it a couple of times but it's very good-- produces quite a bit of juice from just a little wheat grass or just a few kale leaves. Highly recommend both the product and the company...more info
  • No problems with the little juicer that could
    I have been using this juicer now for about a month and a half with no problems. Now, I haven't been juicing vegetables, just wheatgrass and spinach. I use my omega for other veggies. That said, the healthy juicer is easy to use, easy to setup and clean and and leaves dry waste coming out, so it's juicing to the max. The DVD is nice in learning how to use it properly and the extra parts are a nice added value feature. For the price and the value, why not try it! I suppose an electric one would be nice, but for a few moments of cranking, I'd rather keep it simple. Buy this one!...more info
  • Buy this now
    This wheat juicer is awesome, why not get one today...price is fair and it even arrived on a Saturday for no extra charge. ...more info
  • This juicer is totally sweet and awesome.
    So, from what I gather, you've pretty much got two kinds of juicers: centrifugal, and macerating; with centrifugal juicers being generally of the high-rpm electric grating/spinning variety, and macerating juicers being generally of the low-rpm auger (think drill-bit)/press variety.

    The important thing here (again, from what I gather), is that, due to the friction/heat inherent in how they operate, centrifugal juicers tend to destroy the beneficial enzymes normally found in fresh produce; whereas macerating juicers, due to their low rotational speed/temperatures, do not. Additionally, macerating juicers are not only more efficient than their centrifugal counterparts (thus, using less produce/producing more juice), but also extract juice from the nutrient-rich peel of your produce, yielding a 'healthier' juice overall.


    With that, it's obvious that macerating juicers are totally sweet and awesome, while centrifugal juicers are pretty lame. Or at least, macerating juicers are totally sweet and awesome, if you're ready to drop ~$250+ on one.

    This, of course, is where the 'Healthy Juicer' comes in. At less than 1/4 of the cost of most electrical macerating juicers, it certainly seems like a steal... but is it all just too good to be true?

    As for that: I'm happy to say, while not 'a steal', per se, the 'Healthy Juicer' is certainly a good deal. There is some prep-work involved insofar as chopping your produce into the smaller pieces that this juicer can handle, but I've run thorough apples, carrots, beets, cucumbers, grapes, celery, lemons, oranges, and leafy greens; and the unit has worked wonderfully: the pulp comes out dry, the juice is delicious, and clean-up is quick and easy.

    That said, my only complaints about the 'Healthy Juicer' are that it could stand to be a bit larger (allowing for larger bits of produce), and made of less plastic/more metal. All-and-all, this juicer deserves a solid 4-stars for being a great deal, and for working 100% as-advertized.

    The end....more info
  • Awesome Juicer, but could be improved
    I love this juicer.

    I can't say enough about it.

    Pros:

    Easy to use
    Quick to assemble and disassemble
    Easy to clean
    Efficient
    Well made


    Cons:

    Too much plastic, the receiving vessel should be made of glass, in mine it seems that the combination of vegetable juices has actually corroded it, I don't want plastic in my juice. There should be more metal inside the unit. basically the unit should be made of heavy glass and metal, not plastic. Unfortunately due to the special shape of the receiving vessel there's little chance of substituting your own container for the provided one.

    Some veggies are hard to juice without helper vegetables. For example celery tends to sit at the end of the auger and spin in place instead of being forced in to the juicer, so you must use something hard like a carrot to force it through. This is a problem because most hard veggies are packed with sugar, something I don't want to make up much of my juice. That is just one example, you will get used to it after a while but it's still a bit of a pain.

    Overall this is one of the best juicers out there. Way more efficient than a centrifugal, wayyy cheaper than a comparably efficient powered auger type. With a few changes to design it would be the best manual juicer I've ever seen, actually it already is!...more info
