Philips recently announced the launch of their brand spankers new QuickClean Juicer, and guess what? TT got one to roadtest(!), so if juicing is something you've been thinking about starting (go you!), listen up.
The biggest hassle when it comes to juicing is the washing up (many will agree!), but this little beauty can be cleaned within a minute. Truly! Let me explain: The "inverted electro-polished sieve" (it's really smooth) means that fibers from your fruit and veggies don't get stuck in the "mesh", making it mega simple to clean. (I've used juicers where the fibres do get stuck in the mesh and they're a nightmare to clean). TT's other fave features include:
:: The extra-large (80cm) feeding tube (no need to pre-cut fruit/veg before juicing!). :: Super easy to assembly and just as easy to take apart. :: The pulp is all collected in one place, which means you don’t need to scrape off pulp from other parts such as the lid (oh, and if you have chickens like us? Give them the pulp, they love it!). :: All removable parts of the juicer are also dishwasher safe. That said, I find it a cinch to wash up under the tap, provided you do it immediately after making/drinking your juice. :: The jug it comes with is awesome. It's not only huge, but it holds back the froth and any ice I throw in the jug prior to juicing. Ice cold, fresh squeezed fruit and veggie juice? I mean, really. What else is there?
Juice Master extraordinaire and Philips juicer spokesperson,
Jason Vale (above) - remember him from Hungry for Change? - has been promoting the health benefits of fruit and veg juices for over a decade and believes that having the right tools is crucial for successful juicing. “The thing that people usually complain about more than anything else when it comes to juicing is the cleaning. Philips has listened – it now takes less than a minute to clean your machine,” said Jason Vale. “I’m passionate about juicing – I juice two or three times every day and I need a machine that will take the job on.” Jason Vale will be in Australia in April to launch his new book, The Funky Fresh Juice Book (below), and will be conducting live demonstrations as well as sharing his personal story about how he improved his health and gained a new life through juicing.
