What Can The Kuvings Silent 850 Do?

Unlike multipurpose masticating juicers the Kuving NS-850 Silent Juicer machine like other uprights is only suited for juice making. This unit is not designed for homogenizing and will not serve as a baby food or pasta maker. However, using the Silent Juicer as a fruit, vegetable and wheatgrass juicer you are certain to get your moneys worth with every use and enjoy the best nature has to offer.

This model is extremely efficient at juicing hard and soft fruits including citrus, typically one of the more difficult fruits to juice. Make your favorite vegetable juice easily from whatever you desire including hard-root items like carrots and beets while preserving the nutritional value and full bodied flavor. If wheatgrass and leafy greens are more your fancy the Silent Juicer has you covered there as well with its ability to efficiently extract from produce such as wheatgrass, kale, cabbage, spinach, and pine needles just to name a few.

Juicing Efficiency

Like other single gear masticating juicers, the Kuvings slow juicer machine chews fruits and vegetables through a slow juicing process efficiently squeezing out every ounce juice. The low-speed of only 78 rpms protects the full bodied flavors and nutritional content from being destroyed by excess heat, friction and oxidation that is common with centrifugal juicers. To make things easier while juicing the pulp and juice are guided automatically into separate containers enabling you to juice without interruption.

Juice Quality

Juice quality from the Silent Juicer NS-850 is considered to be low in pulp, high in yield with a bold rich flavor that is noticeable on the palate when compared to competing uprights. With the combination of the low 78-80 rpm and the unique press extraction method this juicer is very gentle with fruits and vegetables of all kinds and that is immediately noticeable in the quality juice it delivers. A slow juicing method has an advantage over rapid rotation because it is able to preserve the nutrients and enzymes and the press and crush extraction process does not destroy the nutritional value of the fruits and vegetables.

Pros & Cons at a Glance
