Hamilton Beach Juicers
Cheap Juicing Appliances
You may wonder how Hamilton Beach Juicers compare to other pricier juicer machines in terms of durability and juice quality. Juice extractors by Hamilton Beach are sold in almost every department store, and models include centrifugal units with wide feed tube as well as manual commercial citrus presses.
Juicer experts say that Hamilton beach juicers are less durable, and the juice quality is not as good as juice made with some of the more expensive machines (L’equip, Breville, Omega).
Many users are however satisfied with their Hamilton Beach model, and gave good ratings on online retail sites.
Let’s try and find out who’s right.
Common Features, Main Models for Home Use
The two Hamilton Beach HealthSmart Juicer models are one of the lowest priced electric juicers available in stores. These applainces make juicing available for everyone.
Hamilton Beach HealthSmart Juicer, Model Series 67800
Hamilton Beach HealthSmart Juicer with Two Speed Settings, Model 67900
The other model in the HealthSmart line is the Model 67900 which is also operated by a 350-Watt motor but 2 speed levels can be set. The blade and strainer are made of stainless steel, while the rest of the appliance is white plastic, except the lid and pulp container which are see-through plastic.
This unit has the same pros and cons as its sister discussed above:
All in all the Hamilton Beach HealthSmart machines are pretty good starter juicers that many people can afford.
Price of the Hamilton Beach 67900 2-speed juice extractor: cc. $40 – $46.
Warranty: 1 year
Hamilton Beach Big Mouth Juicers, Models 67600 & 67650 (Pro)
The Wide Feed Tube juice extractors by Hamilton Beach are powered by 800-Watt motor. The chute on the lid is larger than that of the HealthSmart models’, so it cuts down preparation time by being able to accommodate smaller apples and carrot sticks in whole.
The design and construction resembles very much to the HealthSmart models:
Two locking arms with safety switch hold down the lid. The juicer will start only if the latches are attached securely.
Includes a plastic plunger and a cleaning brush for cleaning the strainer basket. Putting together the parts takes about a couple of minutes, and after plugging the unit in, you can start juicing by pressing the On/Off switch on the side of the machine. When you finished juicing, unplug the unit and take it apart (takes again only a couple of minutes) for a immediate cleaning.
Don’t postpone cleaning up because it will only mean more work: the pulp remains will stick to the inside of the bowl and the strainer holes. Soak the parts in warm soapy water for about 10 minutes, use the brush for washing the strainer, then rinse everything, and let them dry before reassembling the juicer.
Price of the Hamilton Beach 67600 Juicer: cc. $65 – $90.
Warranty: 1 year
What’s the Difference Between Models 67600 and 67650 Pro?
The only feature the Model 67650 Pro differs in is that it has metal latch arms and comes with a plastic juice cup (besides the cleaning brush). It has the same 800-Watt (1.1 horsepower) motor than Model 67600.
