Get Juicing With Philips’ Latest Juicer Technology
The Philips Avance MicroMasticating Juicer uses micro-masticating technology to maximize its yield (getting up to 90% of your fruit and vegetable into the glass). It also has a pre-clean function to leave the inside fiber-free once you’re done. All its parts can be rinsed clean quickly. The design is geared towards minimal maintenance and ease of use. Read on to see how this juicer works and whether it’s worth your money.
- All parts of the machine that come into contact with food slot together as a single unit, which then clips into the base. Inside the juicing unit, a rotating screw shreds the fruit and vegetables, ejecting the pulp into the container below. Here the juice flows in the opposite direction, first passing through either a pure juice or a fiber juice filter. The use of the fiber filter results in juice that is quite thin, with only a little pulp.
- This method enables you to juice directly into a glass or the lidded jug that’s included. The one-meter cord winds around the machine once you’re finished. Plus, there’s space inside the pulp container to store the tray, pusher, and juice jug. All the parts of the HR1947 are dishwasher-safe.
- The HR1947 comes with a diagram to show how the juicing unit assembles together, and a pictorial booklet containing numerous recipe ideas. Some effort is required to push bigger fruits and vegetables through the relatively narrow feed tube, but otherwise the HR1947 is a good juicing package for any household. Drinks are quite frothy (foam on the top is not separated). There’s a drip-stop function on the spout, which is handy.
If your previous experiences with complicated, hard-to-clean machines have left you resorting to pre-packed juice, the Avance is a model that’s easy to assemble, use, and clean – and, above all, takes up minimal space in a kitchen. The machine isn’t very noisy either, unlike loud centrifugal juicers.
