"The chances of you finding a more easily used and effective juicer than the Hurom CJ at a price of just $149 are very slim."
As far as quality juicers go, we’ve come to expect quite a high standard of product from a company such as Hurom, and the Hurom CJ Citrus juicer is no different. We’ve been seeing fantastic products matched by an equally outstanding price tag, with many previous Hurom juicers setting you back at least $400. However, the CJ Citrus Juicer comes at the modest price of just $149 yet manages to make some minor improvements over certain other Hurom products, while still retaining the functionality that we’ve come to expect from their previous juicers. With impressive features such as a 120V motor and a juicing cone that enables you to juice with only one hand, the attractive looking Hurom CJ Citrus juicer will give you better value for money than the majority of juicers currently out there on the market.
First off, it must be said that the Hurom CJ Citrus juicer is a particularly stylish piece of kit that would be a good fit in any modern kitchen. Unlike many other Hurom products, this juicer comes in three different colours; the standard silver, as well as softer pink and blue options, all of which give it a sleek and attractive look. Weighing just 5.29 pounds and measuring 9.4 x 7.5 x 18.4 inches, the CJ is rather lightweight and will not take up too much room in your kitchen. As a much smaller and less powerful juicer, it may not be as durable as a number of other similar juicers, including some of Hurom’s own, although you are still extremely likely to get all of your money’s worth out of the Hurom CJ.
The juicing cone and chamber are made of a plastic called Styrene acrylonitrile resin (SAN) known for having very good thermal resistance, while the main body and filter are comprised of stainless steel. This gives the CJ low levels of oxidation that allows for even better nutritional value from the juices. With three separate parts that mount atop the motor and a juice filter that enables you to choose between pulp and pulp-free juice, the design of the Hurom CJ Citrus juicer is as practical and effective as any other Hurom juicer we’ve seen.
In the past, many other Hurom products have been able to juice foods such as pineapples, celery and kale, which is why many of their previous products have been both heavier and more expensive. While the Hurom CJ juicer is both more portable and cheaper than some of Hurom’s other juicers, it does sacrifice certain juicing capabilities. This juicer works simply with citrus fruits, which may be a turn off for anybody looking for a more all-powerful juicing device. However, the one-size-fits-all juicing cone on the Hurom CJ allows you to easily work with any citrus fruit you can imagine, producing an exceptional amount of juice with just one squeeze. The stainless steel and SAN materials making up the juicer allow for a more naturally tasting juice that retains maximum nutritional value, so you know the juicer is working effectively.
The Hurom CJ features a 120V motor that allows the juicing cone to spin at a rate of 120RPM. Therefore, you would expect the juicers to cause quite a racket while in use, like many other similar products. However, you’ll find that the CJ is remarkably quiet for the job that it is carrying out, so shouldn’t have to worry about causing any disruption whilst using the device. It could be said that the fairly modest design of the CJ limits the amount of functions that it can carry out. While this may be true, there can be no complaints made about how effective the juicer is at carrying out its main function. You are unlikely to find another juicer this easy to use, that also gives you fantastic-quality juice. It may not be the product for someone that is looking to juice a whole variety of different fruits and vegetables, but for everyday citrus juicing needs, you are unlikely to find a more suitable alternative to the CJ.
Ease of Use
As such a lightweight and simply formed device, it's no surprise that the Hurom CJ citrus juicer is super easy to use. While many other Hurom juicers have been criticised in this area, the CJ excels and makes the process of juicing feel as easy as its ever been. The unique juicing cone allows you to create juice with just one hand, requiring minimal effort and making your life much easier. The design of the CJ, with three parts that mount on top of the motor along with a removable juice filter, gives you the opportunity to select between pulped or pulp-less juice based on your personal preferences.
Previously, Hurom juicers have been criticised for not being particularly easy to clean, however, this is not the case for the Hurom CJ. The parts of the juicer can be disassembled very quickly and easily, and only require a quick clean to be ready for full use again. The CJ also features its very own drip-stop outlet which allows you to stop juice falling when you do not want it to and start it again when you do by flipping the outlet to close or open it. This also prevents any juice from dripping onto your surface, ensuring that you do not have to do any extra cleaning. As a UL-certified product, you can also be assured that the Hurom CJ is fully safe for use.
All in all, the chances of you finding a better citrus juicer than the Hurom CJ, at a price of just $149, are very slim. While this may not be the product to satisfy somebody that likes to have maximum variety in what drinks they can produce using their juicer, somebody that is intrigued by the idea of investing in a juicer for their home should look absolutely no further. For the price you pay for an appliance such as this, you will not be able to find a product that creates the quality-tasting, nutritional juice that the Hurom CJ does.
