If you are looking for a cost-effective, yet efficient juicer that is suitable for daily use, you should definitely check out the Epica 1989 juicer. This juicer is a leading contender among the top citrus juicers, judging by parameters such as pricing, efficiency, ease of use, simplicity and user friendliness.
It runs really quietly and actually lives up to its name as a whisper-quiet juicer.
Features for the Epica 1989
The housing of the juicer is designed sleek brushed stainless steel, as is the strainer. The reamers are made from plastic materials. The two reamers of the juicer are of different sizes in order for the juicer to be able to accommodate fruits of different sizes. As a result, this juicer is capable of juicing just about any suitably-sized citrus fruit, ranging from limes to the bigger grapefruits.
These reamers begin to rotate once the fruits are placed upon their surfaces as the contact of the fruit with the reamers activates the auto stop/start one-touch operation feature of the juicer depending on the degree of application of pressure. The only action that is required of the user is to simply swab the reamers for juicing to begin.
Once activated, the juice begins to flow through the stainless steel strainer which sieves out the pulp and seeds and then the extracted juice flows out through a side spout into a suitable glass. The strainer does not always need to be cleaned immediately after each use as you can juice more than a dozen oranges before it might require cleaning.
For users who are concerned about the BPA content of the plastic parts of this juicer, it should be noted that the reamer is made of high-grade plastic with low BPA content and it is actually the only plastic component in this device.
Furthermore, considering the fact that there is minimal temperature change observed when the device is in operation any such fears of BPA contamination are misplaced. The Epica 1989 juicer has a one-touch operational mode which precludes the need to press any buttons whatsoever.
Although there are a few noticeable shortcomings with this juicer, they do not in any way diminish the quality of this product. One rather obvious demerit is the fact that it doesn’t come with a pitcher to collect the extracted juice.
However, It has an efficient pulp strainer which limits the quantity of pulp that gets into the extracted juice. In fact, it is easy to extract pulp-free juice with this machine since there are no options on the juicer to control the pulp levels. As a result, minimal quantities of pulp gets into the juice. However, users who would like to have a bit more pulp in their drink can always add pulp to it from the strainer after extraction is completed.
This appliance is so intuitive and easy to use that any one of any age group can operate it without any difficulties whatsoever. During operation, the unit stays put in one spot without moving about on the counter surface.
Unlike many citrus juicers, the direction of rotation of the reamer is uni-directional as it rotates only in one direction.
This juicer scores another point with the fact that it is easily dissembled for after-use clean-up and storage. The removable parts can be easily detached and rinsed under running water as desired.
