This attractive electric juicer, the nifty Jack Jack Lalanne-designed juicer is encased in a durable stainless-steel covering. It’s easy to use and has a whopper of a motor – at 3,600 rpm.
As an extra incentive to those who are thinking of investing in this powerful juicing machine, the motor comes with a limited lifetime warranty. Less expensive than other juicers of this quality, the cost makes it a great buy. Here are some other features that might interest you.
Size and Design
This electric juicer measures 18 x 12 x 17 inches and weighs in at 15 pounds, which makes it a formidable machine for serious juice enthusiasts. As with other quality and more expensive juicer, it comes with a large feed tube, making it easy to insert whole fruits and vegetables.
The size of this juicer makes it a bit more difficult to fit on a kitchen counter than some of the sleeker, compact designs, but its attractiveness makes it a conversation piece if you can find a spot for it.
The thoughtfulness of its design is difficult to argue with. The extraction method is patented and the pulp collector is large enough that you don’t have to stop the machine to get rid of the pulp before continuing.
The Jack LaLanne juicer doesn’t come with a pitcher to store the juice in, but is meant to have a glass or other container inserted beneath the non-drop spout.
Even with a high-performance, 3,600 rpm motor, this juicer is super quiet as it goes about efficiently extracting juice. Those juicer aficionados who have graduated to a top of the line juicer such as this one have praised its quietness over the extremely noisy processing of the less expensive brands.
A stainless steel blade makes the juicing process quick and efficient and the 3,600 rpm motor makes sure the blade receives all the power it needs. There’s less prep time because you’ve got the wide feed tube that lets you insert whole fruits and veggies at the same time.
You will have to push on the fruits and veggies to pass them through the feeding chute – unlike the Breville 800JEXL Juicer that does all the work for you.
Use caution when feeding items into the feed tube if they contain an exorbitant amount of pulp. Chopping into smaller pieces and feeding them slowly into the machine should eliminate the chance of the filter becoming full too soon.
Most juicers are now designed for easy cleanup, and this power juicer is no different. Parts are dishwasher safe and the non-drip pour spout ensures that there’s little or no mess on the countertop.
The stainless steel design of the Jack LaLanne Power Juicer eliminates hard to remove stains (such as carrot stains) such as on plastic juicer models.
Volume and Taste
You can be enjoying a glass of juice in a fairly small amount of time – but it’s not as fast to produce large quantities of juice as other, more expensive juicers such as the Breville 800JEXL.
The unique extraction method of the Lalanne Power Juicer does deliver the juice naturally, with enzymes and nutrients intact – certainly healthier than the juices you purchase in the supermarket that come with preservatives and loads of sugar.
It also has a mesh filter made of stainless steel that ensures you get pure and unadulterated juice extracted from the unit. You’ll enjoy the natural taste of the fruit and vegetable juices without pulp because it is thrust into the hefty pulp catcher.
This electric juicer delivers quality along with a mid-range price. It’s not the deluxe and high-end juicer that you could invest in, but it does provide a high-standard and superior appliance that lets you enjoy the true taste of fruits and veggies while preserving their nutrients.
If you’ve been using a less expensive juicer for awhile and want to graduate to one that is quieter, more efficient, easier to clean and that provides a clear, tasty glass of fresh juice without pulp – this may be the model you’re looking for.
Compare prices before you purchase and also compare juicers. There are pros and cons to the Jack Lalanne electric juicer, so you should weight which features are most important to you.
Size and Design: This juicer is about the size of any good juice extractor, but its weight (15 pounds) makes it easier to use if placed permanently on a kitchen counter rather than having to lift it out of a cabinet each time you want a glass of juice. The electric juicer’s design is sleek and streamlined and has many features you’ll love.
Noise: You’ll enjoy the relative quiet of this machine compared to other, less expensive and lower quality ones. One of the compliments that users of this juicer claim over and over is that the noise is almost non-existent.
Speed: The 3,600 rpm motor makes this electric juicer fast and efficient and you’ll have less preparation time from dicing and chopping fruits and veggies because of the large feed chute that accommodates whole items.
Clean Up: Stainless steel makes this power juicer much easier and faster to clean than its plastic counterparts. Easy to remove and dishwasher safe parts help simplify the clean up process so you can have more time to enjoy your fresh juice.
Volume and Taste: One of the only true complaints about this machine involves the volume of juice it produces. While you can derive a glass of juice quickly, it takes more time than other high-end juicers to make a pitcher. But, you’ll receive a clear, pulp-free and delicious glass of fruit and/or vegetable juice from this unit.
Cost: Mid-price range, but quality construction. The Jack Lalanne PJP Power Juicer Pro Stainless Steel Electric Juicer compares favorably to its more expensive counterparts.
