A review of the Philips Pre Clean Juicer!
Sometime ago, Philips wrote to me saying would I be interested in using and reviewing the Philips Pre Clean Juicer. The child at home loves juices and considering what a picky eater he it’s a relief that he likes and drinks anything at all. But considering my terrible experience with juicing devices earlier specially the cleaning of them, I was hesitant but then I thought how will I know if I don’t try.
Approx a month ago I got the device at home, a very sleek-looking device which doesn’t need too much space on my counter which these days with increasing number of gadgets is an issue worth considering. More often than not for me, when I am thinking of whether to buy something, the decision is taken based on the fact whether the counter space it takes is justified by what it delivers or not. When it comes to counter space, Philips Pre Clean Juicer was a winner. Test cleared.
The second point is usually judge my gadget is the ease of use, how easy it is to operate and clean post that. I know we all go gadget happy at times only to realise later that damn they are such a pain in the wrong place to use. The Philips Pre Clean Juicer passes that test too, very very simple and intuitive. My 7.5 yr old son has been making juices in it on his own pretty much and cleaning it too. You feed the fruits/vegetables using the long feeding tube you see in the picture.The juice gets collected in the jar and all the fibre and waste is collected at one place, all you have to do is scoop it, dump it and clean just as you would clean a normal utensil. Even the juicing blade is surprisingly fuss free to clean, nothing much gets stuck on it.
The next point to judge a gadget would naturally be the efficiency, is it doing the task it is supposed to do well. When it comes to juicing, I would want the juicer to extract as much juice as possible from the fruit hence leaving the waste very dry, also I would like it to be able to run continuously when I need a larger quantity of juice. I tested the juicer on both the counts. The waste that comes out it very dry, may be could have been 10% more drier but frankly this is the best I have seen till date in juicer so probably till the time another technology waves comes up this is our best bet. I also tested the juicer for making 3 litres of juice at one point, I did have to empty the waste twice in between but otherwise it worked perfectly well. The machine didn’t heat up and it took all of 6 minutes for me to make 3 lts of juice. I think there the Philips Pre Clean Juicer passed the test of efficiency as well.
I have taken a month of using the Philips Pre Clean Juicer before I have sat down to write this post because I really really wanted to be sure of the product. I do know that I get hyper excited about a gadget and my excitement dies down within a week but this time around the juicer is going strong. Every evening when the child is back from school, he goes and selects the fruits he wants for the juice, most guessing which color the juice will turn out to be if he plays with various fruits and vegetables and the very fact that we are still juicing on an average of 4-5 days a week speaks volumes about the product. Thank you, Philips Pre Clean Juicer for finally making juicing easy.
Here are a few of our favorite recipes we tried juicing in the past month, for most recipes the method is just chop and put it in the juicer. I prefer using the fruits and vegetables with the peel when juicing but if you are worried feel free to peel stuff.
Green Goblin (as the child calls it)
4 green kiwis.
few leaves of mint.
One medium sized watermelon.
3-4 leaves of basil.
Juice of 2 lemons.
Pinch of Black Salt.
Few leaves of mint.
Pinch of black salt.
Pinch of black pepper.
Yummy Yellow (again child provided name)
2 oranges (peeled)
2 mausambis (peeled)
Pinch of black salt.
