Maybe you are juicing to lose weight, maybe it’s to improve your health. Finding a good quality juicer can take a bit of research. Quite often, people searching for a juicer end up buying a blender. While blenders are great kitchen tools, they are very different from a juicer. Blenders are more appropriate for making smoothies, crushing ice, mixing sauces and drinks or other kitchen tasks. A juicer is designed for one purpose-to turn fresh fruits and veggies into delicious juice. It’s that purpose that leads us to recommending the Mueller Austria Juicer Ultra.
One of the first things that you should look at when checking out juicers is the motor. This may sound basic, but the size and power of the motor will make a huge difference in the overall functioning of the juicer. Think about what you are asking a juicer to do. You are going to put chunks of dense fresh fruits and vegetables into it’s mixing bowl and expect it to turn those chunks into juice. You won’t be able to do that with a small, under powered motor. The Mueller Austria has a very strong 1100 watt motor, one that is strong enough to take on the toughest fruits and veggies that you can find.
Even though this unit comes with a large motor, the overall design is very sleek and will not take up a lot of counter space. The front panel is very simple to understand, the 2 speeds are easy to turn on and both speeds give you plenty of options when it comes to making juice.
When you are making juice, you don’t want to spend a huge amount of time dicing and chopping veggies and fruits. While you can’t just toss in any size of ingredients, the large 3″ food chute does allow you to use larger than usual chunks of fruits and veggies. Because of the powerful motor, you will be able to quickly make delicious juices in no time.
A Juicer With Easy Clean Up
Juicing can leave a mess, you always end up with pulp and peel. The Mueller Austria is much easier to clean than other models in it’s price range. The heavy duty blades are covered by an industrial mesh and both clean up quickly and easily. The rest of the unit cleans easily as well, you won’t need to buy special tools to clean out those hard to reach spots. Some juicers are notorious for being difficult to clean, but that isn’t the case with this unit.
Generally, you will be able to find this juicer for under $75, making it an excellent value for the price. The unit is very well built and is quite easy to use. The most important feature, of course, is can it make good juice? Yes, it can, and at a great price.
