The Nesco American Harvest JB-50 2-in-1 Juicer/Blender Review

The Nesco American Harvest JB-50 2-in-1 Juicer/Blender is a 14000 RPM juicer with a number of features that make juicing easy and fun. Unlike other juicers, the model is inexpensive but comes with all the features one needs for making nutritious juices. Its small frame also makes it very easy to store even in small kitchen spaces.

American Harvest JB-50Features The Nesco American Harvest JB-50 2-in-1 Juicer/Blender is a 14000 RPM juicer that comes with a 50-ounce glass blender, suction cup feet for stability, and a safety lock. Users can choose between two speed control settings, while the pulse feature allows for more efficient food preparation. The Nesco juicer is dishwasher safe, including the stainless steel sieve and pulp collector, so clean up is a breeze. With its small size, users enjoy the use of a model with a compact footprint and lesser energy use compared to larger models. The small size also makes the entire unit easy to store.

Most users complain about the poor construction and the flimsy feel of some parts of the blender, especially the juicer base and other components. The blades also do not detach, so cleaning can be hard to do. Another source of complaints is that the juicer cannot seem to tolerate periods of prolonged use. One has to give it 30 seconds of cool down in between 3-minute periods of operation to avoid overheating the juicer. This makes it a deal breaker for those who are looking for heavy duty juicers especially if they are serving many people every day.

The Nesco American Harvest JB-50 2-in-1 Juicer/Blender comes with basic features and none of the frilly bells and whistles other units come with. Another advantage is the weight of the unit. Unlike other models, the Nesco juicer is lightweight so taking it out of the kitchen cupboard and returning it back in is easy. The buttons are simple and easy to use, and switching from the juicer to the blender functions are easy to do as well. When it comes to versatility, the juicer also performs well. The juicer works well either with watery fruits and the same way with harder fruits and vegetables such as carrots and pineapples.

The Nesco juicer/blender is a multi-function juicer and blender that is easy to operate. It sports the basic functions you would want in a juicer for light, daily use. For anyone who wants two functions in one machine, the Nesco American Harvest JB-50 2-in-1 Juicer/Blender may be the juicer for you.

The NESCO/American Harvest JB-50 2-in-1 Juicer/Blender has a unique base that accommodates both the blender and the juicer component. The blender connection features a 50 ounce heavy glass jar and works like any other blender that you use in the kitchen. It has a powerful 2 speeds with pulse feature option that can be used in the preparation of food. It has suction cup feet for stability and a safety lock system. Use it to mix and blend ingredients for use in soups, sauces and other types of food preparation. The juicer function in the JB-50 Juicer/Blender combination extracts pulp and juice from your favorite fruit or vegetable and turns them into a delicious and healthy drink. The JB-50 comes with a 1-1/4 by 2 inches juicer tube and provides you with a way to prepare preservative free drinks that provide your body with certain vitamins and minerals, as well as anti-oxidants to purify and clean your body.

    We got the NESCO/American Harvest JB-50 2-in-1 Juicer/Blender.
    I want to know how I am suppose to get the food build up/mold cleaned out between the seal of the blender and the blender pitcher since its not made to be taken apart to clean (blade/seal area in blender)??????? Can’t use this as it is right now, absolutely unsanitary and totally unhealthy!!! Only been used once and the pulsing of water in the blender, as instructed in the owners manual, before washing the entire blender section/ (minus motor section of course)did not clean it completely! I call customer service and was instructed that it does come apart (unscrew counter clock wise) but it takes 2 people to unscrew it the first time since it’s so tightly screwed on during manufacturing. Well several have tried and so far its not budging! I even took a hammer to the rims trying to loosen it up, nope,didn’t work either! I am so frustrated to say the least!!!!!
    I would not suggest this product to anyone!!! Money wasted!!!

      Thank you so much for sharing your experience! I was not thrilled with this juicer either. There are much better options out there such as the Hamilton Beach Big Mouth. It is reasonably priced and a good juicer for the money!
