Hurom Slow Juicer Review

Hurom Ultem Slow Juicer, black  

The Hurom Ultem Slow Juicer, black.

The Hurom Slow Juicer may run at a lower RPM but "slow" is a bit of a misnomer! This Single Auger Masticating Juicer juices everything with deceptive ease: kale, beets, carrots, limes, lemons, oranges, wheat grass, apples, tomatoes, cucumber, pears, pineapple, parsley, mint, etc. The juice comes out smoother and fuller tasting than other juicers I have owned.

And it does more than juice. I often take presoaked almonds and run them through the Hurom with added water to create the BEST fresh RAW almond milk I've ever had. I prefer fresh over boxed or refrigerated. The almond pulp is saved for cookies, dessert crusts and dehydrated cracker making.

Why I LOVE the Hurom Slow Juicer

Dual Stage Juicing

Juice is extracted through the first crushing stage and before the pulp is ejected, it is then squeezed during the second pressing stage; resulting in more juice, and extremely dry pulp.

      Hurom Juice Yield

Higher Yields

The Hurom Slow Juicer yields 50% more juice than a centrifuge juicer in 50% of the time.


Get the greatest amount of juice from the least amount of fruits. Extracted peels and skins may be used in various pastries, jams, soups, crackers, etc. Less waste than other juicers means more money in my pocket!

Better Taste

Great flavors and superior freshness with each juice recipe. Little or no frothing or foaming, and beautiful smooth juice each time used.

Self Cleans

Simply pour fresh water through to self clean the juicer when changing to another fruit, vegetable or leafy green. When completely done juicing, a quick rinse and wipe of all the pieces makes it a breeze to create fresh juices whenever I want them instead of making a huge batch and refrigerating it. Also each of family member gets a gourmet juice suited to their taste-buds.

Small Footprint

My kitchen counter space is limited, so I appreciate the smaller footprint on my countertop. And the aesthetics of the Hurom Slow Juicer gives it a featured position right next to my Cuisinart Food Processor and Vitamix. This easy access means I juice almost everyday!


The Hurom is lighter in weight than my previous twin-gear juicer and less expensive in the wallet.

Quiet Operation

The low noise is a real winner for my kitchen. The Hurom never sounds like a jet plane taking off!

Squeezes vs Cuts

Less oxidation occurs in my juices because it squeezes instead of cutting and ripping the juicing items apart.

Instructions for a FAST Clean-Up AFTER Using the Hurom Slow Juicer

Hurom Slow Juicer Tips

Sizes of Veggies

Cut thicker items into thinner sizes for optimal extraction.

Juicing Order

Juice high-fiber stringy items LAST! Celery, ginger, dinosaur kale, and pineapple have a tendency to accumulate in the ejection port where the silicone flap is located. If the port is blocked all the excess pulp will stay in the basket and produce a pulp filled thick juice… not what you want! Also if the ejection port was not closed with the silicone flap, same thing occurs.

Juice the Pulp

The extraction fiber may be sent through the feed chute again to extract even more juice. This is a benefit when juicing citrus items and yields even more juice!

No Frozen Items

Never put frozen fruit or ice into the feeding tube.

Simple Gravity - No Force

Drop food into feeding tube. Give the Hurom time to pull the items into the auger! I've rarely used the pusher. Simple gravity will pull the produce into the juicer and no effort is required on your part.

Steady and Slow

Insert food at a slow steady pace, allowing all the pulp to extract. For maximum efficiency, DO NOT over crowd or rush the machine!


When juicing leafy greens or wheat-grass, let the auger pull the kale, chard, and blades of grass into the machine. Don't wade up the wheat grass or kale leaves, just let them flow down the chute.

Nut Milks

Juice pre-soaked nuts and simply add a bit of water for the creation of amazing raw nut milks.

The Hurom STOPS

Should you put too big an item or too much at a time into the feeding chute, the Hurom will turn itself off as a safety feature. Simply press the reverse side of the handle button and then back on again. This usually opens the chute up again and then starts pulling the items down into the auger. Repeat the process if you've really put too much or too big an item into the chute. I learned early "how-big-is-too-big" for the Hurom.

The Hurom Won't Start

The Hurom must have all parts seated properly before you can turn it on. This safety feature insures that parts won't get broken. So if your machine won't start, recheck all the parts and make sure they are seated properly. I know, I've had it happen to me!

How to Care for the Hurom Slow Juicer

Hand-wash with warm water and mild detergent; dry thoroughly.

Do not use metal scrubbers, harsh chemicals or scouring powders, as they can damage the plastic parts.

Use the included cleaning brush to clean the filter and hard to reach spots.

Not for commercial use, do not use continuously for more than 30 minutes.

Avoid juicing large or hard materials such as inedible seeds or frozen foods.


The warranty covers 10 years on the motor and 1 year on parts.


The Hurom Juicer comes boxed with two 50-ounce juicing cups, a tamper, a cleaning brush, an instructional manual, and a How-To DVD.

How to Clean the Hurom

To clean the Hurom Slow Juicer, simply grasp the Hurom handle with one hand and the other with the extraction tube, give it a light jerk to the right and lift off the base and place into the sink. If any juice or residue is on the exterior of the Hurom, wipe it down now! Sometimes juice leaks onto the silicone ring on the top of the base. This happens because the "silicone flap" for the extraction shoot was not closed. If this happens, don't panic. Just clean up the mess and pop the silicone ring off using the flat end of the cleaning brush and wipe down the recessed area and clean the silicone ring. Dry the silicone ring completely before pressing it back into place.

With my kitchen gloves on, I wash the feed chute and juicing cups with hot soapy water and a sponge and rinse. Next I run water through and over the bowl, auger and screen to rinse away any debris. The brush tool allows me to poke into the extraction tubes to facilitate removal of stringy veggie or fruit debris. I also use the brush to release particles from the interior and exterior screen area. I open the silicone flap and allow water to run into the bowl and through the tubes to clear out any particles that may remain. I use a synthetic cleaning towel and rub it over the screened area inside and out to ensure ALL DEBRIS is removed from the screen areas. I dry all the pieces and then reassemble the Hurom.

The Silicone Flap

I have to say that I've forgotten to close that silicone flap several times and it affects how the Hurom performs. Especially when juicing ginger root, wheat grass or citrus. So don't panic! Practice makes perfect along with trial and error!

HINT: Close the silicone flap after rinsing and BEFORE reassembling for the next juicing session!

HINT: Carrots leave an orange film on everything it comes in contact with and must be rubbed off! So after washing the pieces with soap and water, give them a rubdown to make sure all the orange residue is totally removed.

Total Time For Cleaning: 3 minutes.

Raw Juice Recipes

The juice recipes are endless and depend on your own taste-buds and diet needs. Green is BEST, but I like to do it as a separate juice so that it always has a bright green color instead of muddy brown or blue. The flavor is okay, but the color of orange from carrots mixed with green from kale creates a brown liquid that can be "off-putting" to beginner juice sippers!

Carrot Surprise for Two

8 organic carrots, unpeeled

1 organic apple, unpeeled
1/2 organic red beet, unpeeled
1 inch ginger root, unpeeled
2 lemons, peeled
pinch sea salt
BUY the Hurom Slow Juicer

Tomato Surprise for Two

1 jalapeño pepper, deveined
8 organic carrots, unpeeled
4 Roma tomatoes
1 English cucumber
2 limes, peeled
pinch sea salt

A Basic Small Green Juice for Two

10 organic kale leaves
4 organic lemons or 6 organic limes, peeled
1 organic apple or pear, sliced to fit chute
1 cup filtered water

RAW Almond Milk

Boxed almond milks cannot compete with a fresh glass of Raw Almond Milk made with the Hurom Juicer. I use my fresh raw almond milk on Sprouted Buckwheat Cereal.

Citrus Juices

The Hurom juices lemons, limes, and oranges with ease and little to no waste. There is no way I can extract the same amount of juice from a hand press citrus juicer. Try putting the extractions back into the chute to yield even more juice!

Hurom Slow Juicer


The Hurom Slow Juicer provides fast juice extraction, ease in reusing nut and vegetable extractions for other recipes, fast clean-ups, small footprint, and creates little noise. The Hurom Slow Juicer is a worthy investment. (And I've given all my other juicers away. The Hurom Slow Juicer is my number one juicer now.)

BUY the Hurom Slow Juicer Model HU-100S New Silver with Cookbook

UPDATE: It's been one year and the Hurom Slow Juicer is still working perfectly. I make juice everyday and the clean-up is so easy that I'm never tempted NOT to make fresh juice for our morning breakfast! I also use it to juice lemons and limes for fresh salad dressings and adding to water for more alkalinity.
