Green Star GS-1000 Juicer – Reviewed

Most people are well aware that the best juicer is not going to come cheap. This is why you should read a Green Star GS-1000 review before you rush into purchasing this expensive juicing appliance. If you're planning on fasting in near future, then a professional grade juicer like this will be useful and help you stick to your fasting diet. It can do a whole host of juicing and food processing so it really is a solution to many kitchen needs. The question is whether or not the $400 price tag is worth it for you. This is really just a personal decision that no one can answer for you. Take your time, assess your options and then make your purchasing decision. This is the best advice I can offer.

There are pros and cons to buying a Green Star GS-1000. First I shall discuss what it does well and then move on to a discussion of the aspects that mean that this machine is not for everyone. To be honest, the juice yield from this machine is amazing. The pulp that is ejected is very dry and it can extract maximum juice from fruits and vegetables that you feed into it. Another positive is the fact that it is a twin gear juicer. This type of machine has two gears that rotate in opposite directions with the smallest of gaps between them. The produce that you feed into the juicer goes between the gears where it is mashed and crushed to extract the juice. The gears turn slowly. However this is not a bad thing. The advantage is that there is only a tiny effect upon the temperature of the liquid. This in turn means there is little oxidation so the nutrients within the juice remain in the best condition to feed our bodies.

On the negative side, if you buy a Green Star GS-1000, it takes a bit longer than if you were using a Breville 800JEXL, which is a centrifugal juicer. Also the assembly of twin gear machines takes a bit more time.
