The KT100 Juicer is a new design of single auger machine offering a class leading feed tube and production rate. It features a neat self cleaning device that wipes the inside of the barrel and the outside of the juicing screen.  This is a super precise high performance juicer for the committed juice fan or even for light commercial work.

If you have always looked at juicing with a bit of envy, but can see the benefits of juicing fruit and veg every day, then this masticating juicer then look no further as this is the juicer for you.

The current Mk2 version offers improved pulp ejection and efficiency.  The KT100 difference:

1) Flexibility and Speed: This juicer will juice all soft and hard fruits, vegetables and leafy greens. The KT100 has a class leading feed tube size and production rate. We can honestly say that this machine is as quick to use as a centrifugal juicer while giving great efficiency and cold pressed juice. If someone likes juicing but is frustrated by their centrifugal juicer and is put off by the small feed tube on other cold press machines then this is their best choice. It is also the ONLY juicer of its type to work WITH gravity if the fruit and veg fall in, they will get juiced! No pushing needed!

2) Durability: these machines have huge life spans, with no blade or cutter there is nothing to go blunt and with the reduction gearboxes giving them their low speed operation the high quality motor will last and last.

3) The cold pressed advantage: This type of juicer is more expensive than centrifugal juicers (whizzy basket juicers) but they deliver many advantages. The juice they make is cold pressed, has better nutritional properties and can be stored. They also juice all fruits, vegetables and leafy greens such as wheatgrass. You can even peel oranges and feed them through the KT100 negating the need for a citrus juicer. Centrifugal juicers make an oxygenated juice, due to the juice flying around in the machine in droplet form. This is no good for nutrient retention.

4) Cleaning: The KT100 strips down and cleans up in less than a minute, the mess is very contained in the barrel/juicing screen/auger area

Stylish, quiet and fast, the KT100 Juicer is a brilliant machine. Its hard to believe that something so small is so powerful.

Oscar Vitalmax Juicer Chrome, White or Black

The Oscar Vital Max is the best quality single-augur multi-purpose juicer/food processor on the market today  The powerful 200w motor is quiet and the gearbox causes little vibration and both come with a 20 year warranty.
This is very well made and robust juicer and is built to last. It will make light work of juicing fruit & Veg   The juicer is a masticating model which will produce more juice than a Centifugal Juice and will also produce juice that will retain more vitamins and minerals. This is because the centrifugal models grate the fruit/veg and spin the pulp to extract the juice however a masticating juicer crushes the fruit.
The down side to this model is that the shute is very narrow so everything has to be cut up really small to fit down it. It is pricey but if you drink a lot of juice, which you will when you have tasted the superb quality it producess, then it will quickly pay for itself.
So what makes the VitalMax so special? Unlike Oscar living juicers and other Cold Press Juicers, conventional juicers destroy many of the enzymes, vitamins and nutrients in any foods processed. The VitalMax Juicer uses a crushing and squeezing action, similar to cold pressing, that doesn't destroy the enzymes through heating. Because it also squeezes just about every last drop of moisture out of fresh produce, the VitalMax is economical and reduces wastage.
The Oscar Vitalmax Juicer comes in three models Chrome, Black & White. If you are serious about juicing then this machine is perfect!
