If you’re looking for a funky, eye-catching juicer which produces nutritious juice and has a fantastic build-quality, take a look at the SKG Juicer. SKG have given their masticating juicer a modern twist with its stylish, unique design yet haven’t sacrificed functionality to get there. The SKG Juicer creates top-quality, nutrient-rich juice in high quantities with an impressive 240-watt motor and 43 RPM auger. They have also used industry-leading materials to create a long-lasting and reliable juicer, all for the affordable price of between $250 and $280. This one’s a no-brainer!
Measuring up at 8.7 inches wide, 11.4 inches deep and 20.4 inches tall, the SKG Juicer is fairly bulky. You might struggle to fit such a tall juicer underneath some kitchen cabinets however, this is not a juicer you’ll want to hide away. This great-value juicer is very eye-catching and really stands out from the crowd with its fresh, modern, and funky exterior. SKG have used a mix of silver, black, and translucent grey plastic to create a tactile, contemporary design.
The SKG juicer is available in metallic red or grey finishes, which not only look great but are also handy as they help you to easily match this great-value juicer to your kitchen interior. The SKG Juicer also has a solid, easy-to-use, integrated handle which helps this to also be a very portable juicer. The sturdy yet stylish appearance of this top-quality juicer really reflects its impressive build quality.
The SKG Juicer is a slow masticating juicer. Masticating juicers have a strong, rotating auger in a confined space which crushes ingredients before forcing them through a juicing screen which separates the flesh from the juice. The juice is then transported out of the juicer and into a container. This great-value juicer is also vertically positioned which means that it is self-feeding and allows gravity to contribute towards the efficiency of its juicing process. SKG have really thought this through!
This top-quality juicer has a 240-watt motor meaning it is powerful enough to handle tough ingredients. However, SKG have cleverly made sure that the auger itself only turns at 43 RPM. This is an even lower speed than its competitors and it has a hugely beneficial impact on the quality of juice that this device is able to create. By having a slowly revolving auger, the heat transfer between the motor and the ingredients is minimized. This not only protects the nutrients but also halts the oxidization process, therefore lengthening the shelf life of the juice. Unlike some of its competitors which are able to create juicer that has a 72-hour shelf life, the SKG Juicer is only capable of producing juice with a 48-hour shelf life however, this is still plenty of time to allow you to finish off a full container of juice.
This versatile juicer can also make sorbets and purees too, so it’s a great way to kick-start a healthier lifestyle in a positive, fun way. The SKG Juicer control switch also has a reverse option, which is brilliant for making sure that every last bit of the ingredients has been thoroughly juiced. As a result of this, the SKG juicer has an impressive yield which is great if you have a family to feed or if you like to entertain guests.
Ease of Use
One of the most impressive features of the SKG Juicer is its build quality. Despite having used plastic rather than the more durable stainless-steel, all parts have been constructed from Tritan food-grade anti-oxidization material. This further helps to protect the nutrients in your food. The plastic is also BPA-free so you don’t have to worry about any harmful toxins in your juice, and the parts are shatter-resistant so they can easily withstand the heavy vibrations of the motor. This makes for quite a heavy device, but it is well worth it for the longevity of this top-quality juicer.
The SKG Juicer comes with a 10-year warranty which further reflects the quality of this machine. Another very impressive feature of the SKG Juicer is its extra-large chute diameter. This is something to look out for in all juicers as it cuts down your preparation time massively. With this great-value juicer, you don’t need to chop up your ingredients beforehand, as the chute will easily fit whole carrots, whole apples, whole oranges, the list goes on!
In terms of noise, as is normal for a masticating juicer, it is quite a quiet machine. However, users have reported that the noise the SKG Juicer makes is quite different from other juicers. At first, it makes you wonder if something is wrong with it, but you get used to it pretty quickly. This great-value juicer also comes with not 1, but 2 juice containers which is really handy and is more than can be said for a lot of its competitors.
When it comes to maintaining your device, it doesn’t get much easier than the SKG Juicer. Firstly, this top-quality juicer has a spout cap which allows you to fill the main compartment with water in order to clean it. Secondly, it comes with an attachable basket which contains wiping blades, so the machine is effectively able to clean itself. Unfortunately, the parts cannot be put in a dishwasher however, SKG have provided a specialized cleaning brush to help you tackle those tricky bits.
