It’s amazing how affordable slow masticating juicers are these days. The Joccu juicer is well under $200, but the low price was actually making your girl feel a little skeptical, but I decided that for the price, it was worth the chance. Here’s my real Amazon Juicer Review.

Amazon Juicer Best Price
By some miracle of Amazon, I was also presented with a coupon to purchase the Jocuu at 43% off at that time. I wound up paying under $100 for the machine because of the steep discount. I figured it was now or never to go ahead and purchase this juicer from amazon.
Buying an Amazon juicer was super easy. I searched for juicer amazon and was overwhelmed by the many options and colors. The Jocuu juicer actually has a 4.5 star rating which is excellent for Amazon.
With Amazon Prime, my Jocuu arrived quickly with Amazon 2 day shipping. There is an Amazon return center near me, so I was confident that I could return the thing if it was a piece of trash. Amazon also offered free returns on this purchase. My fingers were crossed because what I really wanted was for the Jocuu to produce pulp free juice with dryer pulp and minimal noise.
I used the Jocuu about 10 times before writing this review. I juiced Kale, grapes, ginger, turmeric, apples, lemons, oranges, cucumber, and celery. The Jocuu got the juice out of each one with ease. The pulp that came out was rather dry except for the very juicy grapes.
Although the juice contained very little pulp, I still used a sifter to separate more of the foam. I don’t like foam but that is unavoidable when it comes to juicing. Sifting the juice works well.
They don’t call it a SLOW juicer for nothing! It takes about 20 minutes to make a glass of juice, and that’s IF you have all of your ingredients prepped. You’ll need to have patience to cut your fruit and vegetables into pieces small enough to fit down the shoot.
NOTE: A slow juicer machine operates at low speed silent motor less than 60 decibels allowing you to enjoy making juice without the brain busting noise.
Overall, I’m so happy with the Jocuu, the price of the amazon juicer, and the quality of juice.
Pros and Cons of Buying a Slow Juicer vs High Speed Juicer
These key differences between a slow juicer and a high speed juicer will help you make the best decision. Here are the real pros and cons listed below for you to consider.
The parts are BPA free!
Slow juicers pulverize small leafy greens like spinach for maximum juice output.
They are way less noisy than a juicer with a high speed motor.
You can juice smaller fruit like strawberries, lemons, and grapes
Smaller parts can be easy to clean and take up less space.
Cold press juice retains more of it’s nutritional value and live enzymes because the grinding reduces oxidation.
CONS of Buying a Slow Juicer vs High Speed Juicer
It definitely takes a lot longer to make one glass of juice
A smaller feed shoot means that larger fruits and vegetables need to be cut into smaller pieces.
It can be difficult for the slow juicer to crush very hard vegetables like carrots, and even harder to crush rinds from watermelons, pineapples, and cantaloup. Much of the nutritional value lies in the rinds of these particular fruits.
A blocked slow juicer requires the reverse function.
Jocuu Juicer Parts and assembly
The Juicer comes with all of the parts you see here in addition to a user manual or instructions, a cleaning brush, and a recipe book. Sorry if my cleaning brush looks gross, but I already used the juicer many times for this review and unfortunately turmeric stains EVERYTHING!
I’ve owned MANY different kinds of juicers, so I consider myself an expert when it comes juicing. I’ve owned the $300 Breville slow juicer as well as the latest Breville high speed juicer that promises to retain more of the live enzymes without compromising the speed. I always wanted the Omega slow juicer, but I’m not prepared to spend $1,000 on it.
The first time I assembled the Jocuu juicer parts, I was a bit confused by the poor English used in the instruction manual. I was a bit discouraged, but I decided to wing it and just put the parts together using common sense. Everything fit together quite easily and snapped into place.

Jocuu Juicer Cleaning
I love how easy the Jocuu is to clean! The smaller parts mean faster clean up. Use the bright green brush that looks like a tooth brush to scrub the food particles out of the filter. Be sure to scrub the inside and the outside to get everything clean.
Don’t forget to bottle up your fresh juice and take it anywhere! It’s great for a picnic and photoshoot, in the car, or after the gym.
