Vita-Mix Versus Juicer: A Review
Comparing Vita-Mix to a Traditional Vegetable Juicer Like
( Recalling Health's Editor Shares Her Story)
Like most health-conscious folk, I’ve
been juicing my fruits and vegetables off and on for as long as I can remember. The whole concept of juicing
has always appealed to me. I mean, logically, using whole and organic foods in their raw form to gain the
best quality of nutrients and phytonutrients (plant enzymes) for good nutrition and general health seemed
like a no brainer.
After all, animals and other beasts of the field
cure themselves of their ailments naturally in the wild, without having to deal with all the detrimental side
effects of “man-made” drugs, so why couldn’t I--as a person with a brain bigger than most animals--do the
In the late 90s, before I left the country to go
serve my faith in the Holy Land for
four years as a volunteer, I owned a small Junior JuiceMan machine. It was a traditional veggie juicer just big
enough for one person, and because I didn’t juice everyday, the investment in the machine still paid off as it was
durable and I felt the cleanup time was not too excessive, though I’ll admit that there were some times in the
mornings when I wanted desperately to drink fresh juices--especially after my eye sight began to decline from so
much computer use--but had decided not to because I just didn’t have the extra time to clean up the machine after
So when I returned to the states, one of the first
things I bought was another junior JuiceMan. I had not needed a juicer in Haifa (Israel) because there
was a vendor in the Mercaz (Market Center) who sold fresh fruit and vegetable juices by the cup or by the liter and
half liter, and I would just go there once or twice a week to stock up.
My Vita-Mix Encounter
Recently, I spent some time with my brother and his wife. My brother happened to own a
Vita-Mix and was touting how easy it was to use, and how it was better than a juicer because
you got to eat the whole veggie or fruit-- pulp, fiber and all. I of course countered that the juicer could
juice everything, and asked him if the Vita-Mix could do carrots and other harder veggies, and would it even
juice greens? He said yes.
Later he demonstrated. I found that he didn’t have
to cut the veggies up as small as I did, and sometimes not at all, and the machine handled everything he put in
there with no problem.
But the part that really impressed me was the
“Just put a drop of detergent in there, add water
and turn the machine on for 30 seconds. And qual-la!” he motioned.
I was stunned, and at the same time very excited,
but I told him I still thought the juicer was better.
The next day, as he made us a couple of smoothies
in record time, I had to break down and give him his propers (translated: tell him he was right and I was
Better than the Traditional Juicer
Yes the Vita-Mix is better
than the juicer. It even makes hot soup in four minutes out of your raw veggies, and has the ability to grind
grains and do other really neat things. So I was sold.
If you haven’t tried the Vita-Mix yet, you
really should. Once you do, you will find yourself juicing more because it will be soooooo easy, and the clean up
will be so effortless.
Never again will you have to say no to
fresh whole fruit or veggie juices to start your day because you
don’t have time for the traditional juicer cleanup.
