You’ll really get your creative juices flowing if you win this amazing Green Star Elite juicer!
Truth be told, I was never one of those folks who felt the need to jump into juicing at home…probably because I didn’t have access to a juicer. Now that I’ve seen what a good-quality juicer can do, I can see why folks like to make their own. Here is what I thought about using the Green Star Elite Juicer (and many thanks to Green Star Elite for letting me try the juicer)…
The foodie in me loved the fact that I could tailor my homemade juice exactly to my taste or nutritional desires. Whatever you like in a juice can be yours if you have a good-quality juicer. When I got ahold of the Green Star Elite juicer I immediately purchased an array of fresh produce to try. My spinach, Fuji apple and carrot concoction was very tasty, certainly (though I should have chilled it before consuming it, in my opinion). My homemade juice practically screamed “nutrient-packed and bursting with freshness!” which was a nice change from some store-bought juices.
This is a heavy-duty machine. It feels like quality—not flimsy or breakable, and it can handle pretty much whatever you are looking to juice. I also liked how easy it was to put the Green Star Elite machine together and take it apart for cleaning. I’m not one for gadgets of 1,000 parts (don’t ever ask me to put together a dresser from Ikea). I will admit that when I opened the box I was a bit intimidated by all the pieces and parts. However, after about 3 minutes of looking at the pieces and glancing briefly at the instruction booklet, my 12-year-old daughter put it together with no problem at all (yes, I’m the rule-following, booklet-reading type for whom life seems much more complicated than it probably is). Also, all parts were easily rinsed and/or washed, and it cleaned up in a matter of minutes the very first time we used it!
Here is some more basic info on this juicer:
- The Green Star Elite by Tribest Corporation is the only juicer on the market that is based on the way that our bodies chew foods. That is, the Jumbo Twin-Gear Juicing Technology uses a 3-stage process (crushing, mixing, and pressing) to produce higher juice yields.
- The juicer also works at 110 revolutions per minute (similar to our chewing speed of 100-120 times per minute) to prevent air bubbles that degrade (oxidize) the nutritional value of the juice. It also uses exclusive magnetic and bioceramic technology to help delay oxidation and stabilize the liquid, which can increase the length of time that the nutrients last in homemade juice.
- The Green Star Elite easily juices most fruits, herbs and vegetables; grinds nuts, seeds and soaked grains; and works as a food mill for the preparation of baby foods, sorbets and nut butters. This best-selling juicer is available for purchase online. More information can be found at www.tribest.com
