Last week I wrote a post about juicing. Since then, I’ve been making juice every few days in the vitamix and straining it. I was content with continuing to do this mainly because I’m cheap.
Over the weekend Nathan was mulling through sales online, and asked me if I was still interested in a juicer. I said I definitely was, but that I couldn’t justify the expense. Then he proceeded to show me a knock off brand juicer (Rosewill RHAJ – 12001) he had found on mega sale ($30 dollars). I figured we may as well give it a shot!
The juicer came yesterday. But I did not get home from work until well after 9pm, and as hard as it was to wait, I waited until tonight to try it out.
And, as far as initial impressions go, I am seriously impressed.
Tonight I juiced: one large carrot (man carrots make a LOT of juice!), an apple, two oranges and about 8 stalks of kale. I sort of kept putting stuff down in it…because it was super fun to see how much juice came out! I yielded a little under two cups tonight.
The pulp in the pulp container was damp, but when I squeezed it, it didn’t yield any liquid. For kicks, I put a huge handful of it back into the juicer, and it yielded maybe a drop of juice.
Clean up was also a breeze…I just rinsed all the parts, and laid them out to dry. Easy-peasy.
So, needless to say, on the first try, and for $30 dollars, I really like it. I drank a few sips of the juice tonight, but put the rest into a container for tomorrow’s snack.
I’ll be sharing more juice creations as well as more info about the juicer soon! Want to learn more about juicing in general? Read this post!
