I have always admired Jack Lalanne and his passion for promoting health consciousness. So, it stands to reason that reviewing one of his juicers would be a fulfilling experience for me. I am a juicing enthusiast and have used many different types and brands of juicers. There are endless options available so finding a good value can be challenging.
I found the Jack Lalanne PJP Power Juicer Pro Stainless Steel electric juicer to be a good value for the price. The stainless steel design is attractive and durable. According to the manufacturer, it provides up to 30% more juice compared to its competitors. I found this to be true. I seemed to be able to extract more juice out of the same amount of produce I used with other juicers. It seems that the patented extraction technology in this juicer is responsible for the more efficient result. This technology also helps to protect the living enzymes and vital nutrients present in the fruits and vegetables that are being juiced.
I use apples and some larger produce in my juices, so the extra large feeding tube that this juice extractor is equipped with enabled me to juice whole cucumbers, pears, apples and other larger items without having to cut them up beforehand.
Most juicers work basically in the same manner. You place the washed produce (I prefer organic whenever possible to avoid the chemicals present in conventional produce) into the feeding tube and gently press it down the chute with the included food pusher. Then, place a small pitcher or glass under the spout to catch the delicious, fresh juice that is extracted.
The motor used in the Jack Lalanne PJP is a powerful 3,600 RPM. It includes a stainless steel blade and mesh filter that make it possible to prepare nutrient dense juices that are free of preservatives, chemicals and sugars. One of the reasons I prefer to make my juices at home is to spare my family of these undesirable additives that are so prevalent in store-bought brands.
As with most higher-end juicers, this unit includes a pulp container located at the back of the unit making disposal of pulp easy and mess-free. If you are green minded, this pulp is wonderful for use as a compost or in soups and other recipes.
The Jack Lalanne PJP Power Juicer Pro Stainless Steel electric juicer provides whisper-quiet operation. Clean up is quick and easy with removable dishwasher-safe parts. This juicer offers a limited lifetime warranty on its motor, which is something to consider when you are purchasing a product at this price point (under $120).
Overall this juice extractor is a good value. It works well and it extracts a good amount of juice with limited pulp making it a good solid purchase.
