Ronco Smart Juicer


The Ronco smart juicer is a perfect juicer for those looking to upgrade from their centrifugal juicers. The Ronco has been shown to produce about 35 percent more juice than centrifugal juicers in the same price range, which means you get more for your money! The Ronco is a masticating juicer, but is priced even lower than many centrifugal models at around $150.

Features and Advantages

The Ronco smart juicer grinds and crushes the produce that you put into it using a screw-like augur instead of a high speed spinning blade. The slower motion and the absence of a mechanism that tears into the produce will allow more nutrients to stay in the juice. In higher speed models, the speed generates heat which may destroy a fair amount of nutrients. The Ronco has shown to produce juice that has 43 percent more vitamin C and 61 percent more vitamin A than juice made using the same ingredients with a centrifugal juicer. The juicer is also an attractive style and can be left right on the counter. The clear housing allows you to watch the augur do its work, which can be entertaining. The juice is also produced in about the same amount of time that a centrifugal juicer takes.


The Ronco is a masticating juicer, so for those that are used to a centrifugal style juicer certain aspects may take some getting used to. The chute for the produce is smaller, so the produce will have to be cut slightly smaller than for many juicer models. The cleanup may also take a little longer, as the parts are not quite as easy to clean as other juicer models. The juicer may be somewhat difficult to disassemble the first few times, but using no-stick cooking spray can help when removing parts. Altogether, this juicer is a great value.
