Hurom's H-AI Slow Juicer is quiet, user-friendly, takes up little counter space, and yields the most juice and the least waste of any juicer we've tested.
Before receiving the Hurom Slow Juicer for review, I'd owned a juicer or two in my day. But while I love fresh juice, I looked at them as a nuisance: loud, clunky, counter space hogs that are a pain to clean.
Then a magical device appeared before me, and I've been off to the races ever since. The past few months have seen me juicing just about everything one can juice — and a few things, evidently, that one cannot. Another masticating juicer like our previous top pick, the Omega NC800HDR (no longer available), Hurom's juicer is a less versatile but more powerful machine for the devout juice fiend.
Assembly was quick, which is good because juicers are things that require disassembly and reassembly with every use. I also made note of how little counter space the Hurom H-AI Slow Juicer took up. Because it is vertically built, its footprint is only as large as a tea kettle, which is something even the most limited countertops can bear.
In use, the Hurom H-AI Slow Juicer delights even further. A self-feeding hopper means all you have to do is load the thing up with your selection of fruits, vegetables, and whatever else you'd like to run through it, twist the lid into place, turn it on, and walk away — just make sure that the basin is there to catch your juice first. This saves me a ton of time in my morning routine which would otherwise be spent feeding fruits and veggies into the machine one by one. Plus, if you have any members of the household you don't want to disturb, this is the quietest juicer I've ever heard.
Slow juicers like this one really excel at leafy greens, which can leave behind some tough-to-clean pulp. Pro tip: clear out the pulp and soak your juicer in hot, soapy water the moment your done; cleanup will be exponentially easier if you don't give those juice-scraps a chance to solidify.
There's no denying that the Hurom Slow Juicer is an investment, but this thing pays off in dividends, and using it daily justifies the expense. — Owen Burke
