Healthy Juicer Manual Wheatgrass Juicer Lexen Products

healthy-juicer

If you wish to incorporate wheatgrass into your juice, but are not prepared to expend the $250 plus on a cold press juicer, this little machine may be for you. The Healthy Juicer by Lexen is manual, so it requires a little extra effort. It has a hand crank that must be turned while sending the vegetables through. At around $49, this juicer is much cheaper than most electric juicers, and can expand the horizons for juicing.

Appearance and Build

The Healthy Juicer requires a little assembly. The body of the juicer is polycarbonate, and the augur and end cap that receive the most amount of wear are made of stainless steel. The juicer has a little metal bar that protrudes from the side and attaches to the counter to hold the juicer still while in use. There is a plunger for pushing the vegetables through. Inside the juicer, the augur works the same way that an augur in a cold-press juicer works, tearing and pressing the food until the juice is extracted. There is also a strainer that can be used on the juice spout or not depending on preference. Some experts say that this juicer is superior to even most high-priced electric juicers in terms of the amount of juice that is extracted.

Features

This juicer is much easier to clean than most electric juicers. There are fewer parts, and a simple run through soapy water and rinse will get the augur, plunger, juice catcher, pulp catcher, and chute clean. The pulp comes out of a separate spout as the food is being juiced, so it is not necessary to remove excess pulp from parts. Although the juicer is specifically designed for juicing wheatgrass and leafy greens, it can be used for vegetables as well.
