With a patented slow-rotating masticating technology, Kuvings juicers efficiently cold-press ingredients and make juices, smoothies and nut milk with minimal pulp and maximal flavour and nutrients.
Frequently Asked Questions
Is a slow juicer better than a fast juicer?
One thing that centrifugal juicers don’t do quite as well as slow juicers is to achieve a more efficient breakdown of plant fibres. In slow juicers or masticating juicers, plant fibres and cells are ground together. This helps to release more of the 'sticky' nutrients. In a centrifugal juicer, on the other hand, the plant cell walls are broken open very quickly and the liquid content is released by the force of a fast-spinning filter basket. This process allows very little time or opportunity for the cells to be broken down completely, so the juice is visibly a bit less rich and colourful. Centrifugals also incorporate air so the juice will oxidise and discolour more quickly. This is not a problem if you are drinking your juice as soon as you make it. Slow juicers, however, will deliver juice with a longer shelf life; juices you make will stay fresh in the fridge for up to two days.
Why do I need a different machine for juicing oranges?
You can juice oranges in the B8200 and the EVO but you have to peel them first. The best juicing orange varieties are also the most hassle to peel, so if you want a daily glass of OJ it is usually more convenient to use a dedicated citrus juicer.
Can I make smoothies or sorbets in a Kuvings juicer?
It is possible to produce smoothies and sorbets with both the Kuvings B8200 and the EVO using optional accessory screens which are sold separately. You can see how easy they are to use in this video.
