Twin Health living juice extractor - Happy Juicer review
first thing I noted when unpacking the Twin Health living juice extractor was
that it was noticeably bigger than the centrifugal and champion juicers. Lifting
the twin health (although you won't want to be doing that to often as it weighs
in at 24 pounds) you get a feel for it's heavy, solid build quality. The body
has rubber feet which stop it slipping around on the worktop and the body is
covered by an easy to clean plastic shell whilst other parts such as the twin
gears, the screw and the screen netting are made of stainless steel.
The following accessories come included with the juicer, - a wooden pusher
for pushing the produce down the feeding chute onto the twin gears, a large
bottle brush that does an excellent job of cleaning the nooks and crannies of
the juicer parts and 3 different juicing screen nettings for juicing different
types of produce. There is also a blank screen that can be used to produce homogenised
products. Two perspex collection containers with pouring spouts are provided
which fit snugly into the juicer body, one is for juice collection, the second
for pulp collection.
the twin health juicer was not as intuitive as some other juicers and a thorough
read of the manual is recommended before you try and use the machine. The twin
gears must be aligned correctly with each other and red dots on the end of the
gears enable you to do this. You then need to choose the appropriate screen,
there is a screen for soft fruit (large holes), fruit and vegetables (medium
holes) and vegetable screen (small - 0.25mm holes). Use the vegetable screen
for wheatgrass. From a convenience point of view the multiple screens are not
good as it means you have to disassemble the juicer, change the screen and reassemble
the juicer if you are making a juice recipe with ingredients that cover more
than one of the screen types, e.g. oranges and carrots. However the different
screens make the juicing process more efficient by targeting the type of produce
being juiced. After a few uses the Twin Health assembly process becomes second
nature and takes under a minute.
Using the Twin Health juicer
Twin Health living juice extractor has to be one of the quietest juicers around,
those with sensitive ears may find this makes the juice making process more
pleasurable than when using a noisier juicer such as the Champion. One of the
reasons for the low motor noise is the fact that the Twin Health has a very
low RPM in fact it is around 70-80 RPM. This means that less air is introduced
into the juice by the juicing process which in turn means that the juice can
be kept longer before it oxidises and valuable nutrients are lost.
The feeding chute of the twin health is very narrow compared to some other
juicers such as the Magimix Le Duo and is slightly narrower than the Champion.
This means that you will need to cut your ingredients up into small pieces,
this can lengthen juice preparation time. Produce should be fed into the juicing
chamber slowly, when first using the machine I was feeding the produce to fast
and this resulted in the juicer producing frothy juice and the clogging up of
the screens and gears which then needed disassembling and cleaning before juicing
could resume. Feeding the produce into the machine at a slower pace helped to
cure this problem.
The Twin Health is a wheatgrass capable juicer and coped well with the super
food, once the twin gears had a hold on the wheatgrass they pulled the rest
of the grass through with no need for additional pushing. I found that a better
juice yield was achieved by alternating wheatgrass with carrots. The wheatgrass
juice produced was again of very good quality although a small amount of froth
The Twin Health also features an 'Intelligent' sensor that can detect when
the machine is overloaded and either reverses the gear direction or stops the
gears. This is said to prevent the need to disassemble the juicer due to the
gears and gear housing chamber becoming clogged up and also prevents improper
materials entering the juicer. The intelligent sensors also help to extend motor
life by preventing overload and excessive strain. A voice function also comes
with the juicer that gives you an overview of the twin health functions but
this is little more than a gimmick in our eyes and does not contribute to how
the machine operates.
The Twin Health juicers juice quality was noticeably very good
The juice yield from the twin health was very respectable when testing carrots
and excellent when testing with apples. The twin health juicers juice quality
was noticeably very good, the juice tasted full and rich although sometimes
especially with soft fruits the juice contained a considerable amount of pulp
which may have 'bulked up' the apparent juice yield.
Disassembling the Twin Health proved to be fairly straightforward, just reversing
the assembly process. There are quite a few parts to clean after disassembling
the juicer but they are all fairly easy to clean with the supplied brush. The
juicer body also needs a wipe down afterwards as juice tends to creep out the
back of the gear housing unit.
Who is the Twin Health most suitable for?
We would recommend the twin health to those who are looking for the maximum
nutrient content out of their juicing routines. The fact that the Twin Health
gears operate at such a low RPM means that very little air is introduced into
the juice, this helps reduce the rate at which nutrients are lost from the juice.
The lower heat also means that fewer enzymes are destroyed.
We would also recommend the Twin Health to someone who was looking to juice
mainly vegetables, wheatgrass, and other leafy greens.
We would not recommend the Twin Health to people who were looking to juice
mostly fruits, those who were on a tight budget or those who were looking for
a juicer that fitted into a busy schedule!
