I recently had the opportunity to try Juicero, and I loved it!
What is Juicero, you ask? Think of it as a luxury, super high-tech juicer.
I don’t think this review would be completely fair without mentioning that I do not own a “regular” juicer. Don’t get me wrong, I’ve definitely been very interested in buying a juicer. No one can deny the incredible nutrition that a daily fruit and vegetable juice can provide, but I’ve been put off buying a juicer for a few reasons:
- They’re expensive.
- You have to buy A TON of fruits and veggies to make a decent amount of juice. Plus, if you’re buying organic produce, the cost can really add up.
- After you make the juice, you’re left with a giant amount of fruit and vegetable pulp, and I hate seeing food go to waste.
- Cleaning. Need I say more? Does ANYONE enjoy cleaning their juicer?
Many of my friends and family have purchased juicers with the intention of using them daily, only to stop using the machine after a month or so because it’s just too much of a pain.
Is this you? If so, I don’t blame you! Sometimes I do everything possible to avoid pulling out my food processor because I hate cleaning it. Yup, #lazypants right here. I won’t deny it.
So, when I was given the opportunity to try Juicero, I was very intrigued because it seemed to solve all of the at-home juicing issues that put me off in the first place.
Here’s how Juicero is different:
- No grocery shopping. The juice packs are delivered right to your door.
- No peeling or chopping produce
- NONE of the dreaded cleanup
Juicero creates cold-pressed juice by “pressing” juice packs filled with organic fruits and vegetables.
The packs are purchased through Juicero on a subscription basis. At the time of this post there are about 10 different flavors, including two seasonal offerings. Each pack ranges in price from $6-$8, and contains one juice.
I tried five different flavor varieties and I loved ALL of them. Now that is saying a lot because I am pretty picky when it comes to cold-pressed juice. I find that a lot are either too sweet or WAY too bitter. These were “just right” (ahem, thanks Goldilocks).
Using Juicero could not be easier. You hang the juice pack from the top of the machine, close the door, press the button and out comes the juice.
When you’re done, all you do is open the door, remove the used juice pack and chuck it in the trash. There is NO cleanup involved. Can I get a HALLELUJAH!?
So, if you’re wondering if Juicero is right for you, I’ve broken it down below:
- You don’t have to grocery shop for produce
- No peeling or chopping
- No pulp mess leftover = NO cleanup!
- The juice combinations are delicious, so if you don’t like creating your own recipes, this machine is your dream
- The back of each juice pack lists complete nutrition information, so you know exactly how many vitamins you’re getting with each juice
- The machine is expensive. Even though Juicero recently dropped the price of the machine from $699 to $399, it’s still on the high end when it comes to the price of juicers
- You can only use Juicero-branded packs and must order them exclusively through Juicero.com. Each pack (or juice) ranges in price from $6-$8.
- You can’t make your own juice recipes
- Each pack produces a smaller amount of juice than I expected (5-6oz. as opposed to the standard 12oz.+ juices I’m used to purchasing)
- The machine is large and takes up a lot of counter space…but in reality, so does a regular juicer
If you want to try Juicero for yourself, they’re offering 10% off the price of the machine through February! To redeem this offer, use the code RP10 at checkout.
