Slow juicer vs regular juice maker. Andrew James Slow Juicer review

I always liked all kind of juices, but I was usually buying them in bottles or cartons from the supermarkets. Later I realised they are full of sugar and not healthy at all. The slow juicer wasn’t something that I could afford to buy, so I decided to have cheap, centrifugal juice maker.

Believe me, there were few really annoying disadvantages of it:

  • all the remains were still wet and I could make another glass of juice by using them only!
  • That kind of juicer creates some heat and it’s not neutral for nutrients,
  • it didn’t work well with leafy vegetables (for example spinach or kale),
  • it was very loud,
  • cleaning was a nightmare.

    Since I bought my Andrew James Slow juicer about 2 years ago, I try to make a different kind of juices at least few times a week.

My favourites are made from:
  • spinach or kale, apple, orange and ginger,
  • carrots, beetroot, apple, orange and a piece of lemon.

    Slow juicing is the best way to get all nutrients from vegetables and fruits, and you can be sure your body can absorb them easily. Unfortunately, there are some disadvantages of my juicer as well:
  • some bits of fruits and vegetables need to be pushed down,
  • it is quite loud, especially when I put some hard vegetables into it,
  • there was a problem with the silver ON-OFF button, but it was solved by the company.


Anyway, preparation and juice making takes about 15 minutes, so it’s not very long (slow juicing is just the name of technique, it’s not about time it needs:) ).

Since I started to drink those healthy juices I haven’t really got an appetite for sweets, I’ve also noticed that baby- hairs are healthy and shiny and my skin looks better.

Other advantages:

  • the pulp that comes out  is super dry, I wouldn’t be able to get any more juice of it;
  • juices taste fantastic, the flavour is always really deep;
  • I’m getting everything I could from my ingredients,
  • quality is really good for that price,
  • juicer looks nice on the kitchen counter,
  • it is super easy to use and clean.
    Andrew James Slow Juicer is not perfect, but it could be a good start to change diet for more healthy.Here you can read original description: CLICK

    This is really timely. I was just telling my husband the other night that I wanted to start juicing! Thanks for the info.

  2. Jessica says:

    I’m going to try the spinach, apple, orange and ginger combination! I really need to look into a new juicer that uses more of the fruit instead of waisting. Thanks for this review!

  3. Nellwyn says:

    I’ve recently started enjoying fresh green juices but I’ve been buying them from my local healthy-food-store. I’ll have to consider this juicer if I ever decide to invest in one of my own, I like that it’s easy to clean!

  4. Sarah-Louise Bailey says:

    I always go for quality where I can get a lot of advantages compare to the cheap ones. Andrew James Slow juicer is a good example of it and I wanna start the year with a healthy diet with the help of this juicer.

    I’ve just recently gotten into juicing and green smoothies, and at the moment we’re smoothing things up with a cheap £13 smoothie/cocktail maker I grabbed from a sale. If we really get into it I will invest into proper hardware though 😀

    I’ve been wanting to try juicing for some time now, so it was great to stumble over this post this morning. Between your post and others that I’ve seen recently, I’m pretty convinced now that slow juicing is the way to go – whenever I finally bite the bullet and buy a juicer.

  7. Krysten says:

    I had my husband explain slow vs regular juicing the other day. I find it fascinating that when you slow juice you’re getting more nutrients. Do you know why that is?
    I want to start juicing really bad.

  8. Erin says:

    The absolute worse thing about my juicer was the clean up. It was such a pain that I wouldn’t use it near as much as I wanted to for this reason alone! The The Andrew James slow juicer sounds like it would be perfect! There’s nothing better than a fresh glass of juice.

  9. Ashlea says:

    I was just telling my husband we should buy a juicer. I can’t drink juice as it makes me sick for some reason but maybe homemade juice won’t. My husband drinks juice by the gallon it seems. My baby drinks about half a glass a day to take his iron and vitamins easier but I really prefer not to give him any.

  10. Lisa Backsnbumps says:

    I haven’t heard of a slow juicer before but this makes far more sense to get the most out of the fruit and veg. Like you I don’t buy the smoothies and juices from the supermarket there is just way too much sugar. It’s a shame people consider them to be ‘healthy’.

  11. Grant R says:

    The slow-juicing clearly sounds much better, but the biggest sell for me is that it’s easier to clean. Our current juicer is such a nightmare that it puts me off making juice at all.

    • Kat says:

      Well you must put some effort into it, but it’s easier in my opinion:) Most of the fresh product is already out (juice and pulp):)

  12. Lisa Rios says:

    I am in look for a perfect juicer that could bring the best out of it without wasting much and the Andrew James Slow juicer sounds like a perfect answer for the same. It definitely looks nice and when cleaning is easy I am sure it is something I would go for!

  13. Carol Cassara says:

    I’ve never tried juicing before although it sounds so appealing. I think it’s nice that you’ve given us a view of how these juicers work. I’d love to look into this kind of lifestyle.
