On the fourth day of Christmas my true love said to me… ‘could I have a slow juicer, yoga mat and matte black kettlebell, please?

Hurom Slow Juicers

Hurom-slow-juicerJuicing: everyone’s at it, right? Well, yes, pretty much. We bet if we looked in most of our readers’ kitchens we’d find a blender or juicer of some description. And so you should, for the body can absorb and digest fruit and veg far quicker when juiced rather than eaten in its full form. And if you’re really serious about it, you could do a lot worse than add a Hurom Slow Juicer to your armoury. The Hurom team have raised the stakes with their range of slow juicers, which come in red, silver, white or silver (so compatible with most kitchen designs).

As you’d expect, the name probably gives it away, this slow juicer uses a slower Cold Press or squeezer technique, similar to squeezing with your hands, which creates the most nutritionally potent juice you can make at home. In fact, by causing little damage to the nutrients, you can get up to five times more living enzymes and nutrients. Using the slow juicer makes juice far superior (up to 50% more juice than conventional juicers), healthier and fresher, with more antioxidants, vitamins, minerals and minimal frothing.

There are other benefits, too. For example, they’re safer (no blades), easier to clean (rinse under a tap – this one’s a biggie!) and economical (they use ten times less electricity). They guarantee little to no separation in your juice and make it easy to create your own nut milks and ice creams. What’s the catch, we hear you cry?  Well, prices start at £299, which is more than your average juicer, but then that’s the point, this is not your average juicer…
