Kuvings Whole Fruit Juicer (Available in Red, White and Silver)

Kuvings vertical whole fruit juicer (B6000 series) may not be the cheapest upright juicer available in the UK and US, but it is one of the most beloved new masticating juicers on the market, as evidenced by the rave user reviews on Amazon. Available in white (B6000W), burgundy red (B6000PR), and silver (B6000S), this high-yield juicer uses slow, cold press technology, which helps protect the delicate enzymes and nutrients abundant in fresh fruit and vegetables. Kuvings' B6000 juice extractor is also famous for its extra wide mouth and feeder tube, which effortlessly chew up large pieces of fruit and vegetables, in many cases even whole fruit. It is also extremely efficient at extracting juice from leafy green vegetables such as spinach, lettuce and kale, and grasses and herbs like wheatgrass, barley grass, and parsley. In the rest of this article, we take a look at some pros and cons of getting Kuvings' whole fruit juicer.

The Pros

Designed to maximize the amount of juice and minimize the amount waste

With remarkable precision, Kuvings' whole fruit, low-speed juicer squeezes the juice out of all sorts of fruit and vegetables, even leafy greens like kale, parsley, green and red lettuce, and spinach. Rated excellent for efficiency, this high-yield juice extractor has been designed to produce very dry (and very little) pulp waste, maximizing the amount of juice and minimizing the amount of food that ends up in the compost pile. In the long term, this can save you and your family a lot of money, especially if you like to juice organic fruit and vegetables which typically have a high price-per-pound.

The extra big mouth and feeding tube reduce prep time

Not only can Kuvings' B6000 save you money in the long term, it can also save you a whole lot of time thanks to its extra big mouth and feeder tube. Marketed as the world's first wide mouth slow juicer, Kuvings' whole fruit juicer easily chews up large pieces of fruit and vegetables, in many cases even whole fruit. This means less preparation (i.e. pre-cutting and chopping up the ingredients), and more time for you to spend outside of the kitchen.

Healthier juice thanks to cold press technology and extra wide feeding chute

By crushing and squeezing whole fruit and large chunks of fresh produce, Kuvings' whole food juicer prevents unwanted oxidation that occurs when you have to cut and chop produce to fit small mouth juicers. In addition, this innovative juice extractor uses cold press masticating technology, which produces practically no heat, protecting the nutrients and health-boosting enzymes in the juice. By contrast, many of the competing juicers are based on centrifugal technology which uses fast-spinning metal blades that generate heat which can destroy some of the invaluable enzymes and nutrients naturally present in fruits and vegetables.

Quick and easy to clean

One of the pros of Kuvings' whole fruit juicer that keeps popping up in the reviews on Amazon is the time it takes to clean the machine after use (about 3 to 8 minutes, depending on what you send through the juicer). To minimize the cleaning time, alternate soft fruit with hard foods (such as carrots, celery and beets) when feeding the juicer – this will help prevent the waste from accumulating inside and keep the need to scrub the components to a minimum.

A surprisingly versatile kitchen tool

With its powerful motor and low-speed masticating technology, Kuvings' B6000 masticating juicer does a great job at juicing anything from cucumbers, apples, pears, radishes, turnips, beets, red and white cabbage, watermelon, lemons, oranges, ginger, garlic, and strawberries to leafy greens such as kale, spinach, celery, Swiss chard, turnip greens, parsley, and wheatgrass. Also special dessert and smoothie strainers are available which can be used to turn this juicer into a multi-purpose kitchen machine that can also create mouthwatering sorbets and refreshing smoothies.

Less mess thanks to the Smart Cap

Kuvings' whole fruit juice extractor comes with a whole range of nice extra features, including a detachable Smart Cap which prevents juice from dripping on the counter, leaving no mess in the kitchen. Thanks to the smart cap, you can also quickly pre-clean the machine before a more thorough clean-up.

The Cons

It won't gobble up everything whole

Despite the wide mouth and powerful motor of Kuvings' whole fruit juicer, you will still have to cut some foods before feeding them into the machine. Big apples, for example, may have to be cut in half or quartered to make them fit in the feeding tube. You may also want to cut very hard foods such as raw carrots before throwing them into the machine in order to prevent excess strain on the motor.

Vertical juicers are tall

Upright or vertical masticating juicers, such as Kuvings' B6000, take up less space on the kitchen counter than the horizontal models. Vertical juicers are generally also more efficient and easier to use as gravity helps pull the produce into the chute. But upright juicers also have one major disadvantage: they are relatively tall and may therefore not fit under some kitchen cabinets. So, before buying Kuvings' whole fruit juicer, be sure to do some measuring to avoid disappointments!

Not for continuous juicing (exceeding 30 minutes)

Most people make only a couple of glasses of fresh juice at a time, which Kuvings' masticating juicer can handle without a problem. But, if you need a heavy-duty commercial juicer than can produce gallons of fresh juice without a break, Kuvings' B6000 may not be the best juicer for your purposes. If you keep operating it continuously for around 30 minutes, the juicer will automatically shut down to prevent overheating. If this happens, you will have to let the juicer rest for another 30 minutes to let it cool down before starting a new session.
