3 Important Reasons why the original Green Star Juicer is still rated as one of the best juicers ever:
Some new competitors are attempting to imply that their dual-gear juicing mechanism is as good as the original Heavy Duty (HD) Twin Gear juicing system featured in the Green Star Juice Extractor. However, these dual-gear imitations do not have 5 important features found exclusively in the Green Star.
1. Pocket Recesses
The teeth of the Twin Gears featured in the Green Star Juice Extractor were designed with special pocket recesses to aid in processing hard vegetables like carrots. The pocket recesses create a sharper edge at the initial grinding phase of the juicing process and reduces the amount of strain exerted by the Green Stars motor when processing harder produce.
Imitation juicers have dual gears with flat teeth. As a result, they are less efficient at handling harder vegetables and require you to use more effort to push the vegetables through the juicer. This excess strain may also be transferred to the motor, possibly diminishing its useful life.
In contrast, the specially designed pocket recesses appearing on every tooth of the Twin Gears featured in the Green Star Juice Extractor simplifies the juicing process and ensures that the Green Star will last for many years.
2. Cutting Points
The Green Stars Twin Gears have special cutting points on each of the gears that allow it to handle a wider variety of produce without jamming or clogging. Imitation juicers do not have these special cutting points on their dual gears, and may become tangled or clogged when processing certain types of vegetables. In fact, these problems have prompted some imitating brands to create an auto-reverse function to interrupt the juicing process if tangling should occur. However, dont be fooled into thinking that this feature is an improvement over the Green Star. The cutting points and pocket recesses of the Twin Gears ensure that the Green Star will not become tangled or jammed while juicing making an auto-reverse function unnecessary, and undesirable. In fact, the auto-reverse function of imitation dual-gear juicers may inconveniently interrupt the juicing process when processing harder or stringy vegetables even when it is unnecessary.
3. Pressure Adjustment Mechanism
The Green Star allows you to easily adjust the amount of pressure that is required for pulp ejection in order to effectively handle a wider variety of produce without jamming or clogging. Different types of produce require a different amount of pressure within the juicing chamber in order to most be most efficiently processed. For example, harder vegetables like carrots require more pressure in order to squeeze the most amount of juice from the pulp, whereas wheatgrass and other leafy greens require that less pressure be exerted in the juicing process. The Green Star allows you to adjust the amount of pressure without having to stop juicing allowing you to use a wide variety of produce in one session for your maximum convenience. Other imitation dual-gear juicers do not have a pressure adjustment mechanism and are not as versatile as the Green Star. As a result, you may find that these imitation dual-gear juicers will often back up or clog when juicing certain varieties of produce.
The GREEN STAR makes:
All fruit and vegetable juices including barley grass
Nut cream and milk concentrates
Baby foods, and
Frozen fruit desserts.
This unit is two extractors in one: the machine juices both hard roots like carrots and fibrous/leafy vegetables like spinach, herbs, such as celery and parsley, and grain grasses, for instance barley and wheat grass.
Patented twin gear technology to extract more juice and nutrients from the produce juiced.
Separate and automatic pulp ejection.
Exclusive low speed, quiet and heavy-duty. Twin-Gear press system crunches and presses. This machine reduces heat, friction and oxidation, saving the most fragile nutrients.
This juice can be stored in a sealed glass container in the refrigerator for up to 48 hours.
Grinds nuts, seeds and grains.
Balanced Sure Grip handle for easy carrying.
Easy to assemble, disassemble and clean.
Convenient On / Off / Reverse three-way switch.
This machine saves time and effort.
Juicing with twin gears is a pulp crushing and squeezing process. This powerful machine functions at very slow speed, 110 RPM, limiting aeration and juice oxidation; no heat generation; all in all juice with a much higher nutritional content.
