Hurom Slow Juicer


I can spend hours watching the shopping channels here convincing myself that I absolutely can’t live without a set of 50 glass containers with plastic lids or some form of foldaway exercise equipment. But then I have to accept that we don’t have room for much more in this flat. Recently a popular item on sale has been the Hurom slow juicer, a Korean brand. Although I like the idea of drinking a healthy juice every morning, in reality I’ve always thought it would be more trouble than it’s worth. I tried to blend some tomatoes once and ended up with a pulpy, sour, pale pink mess. And I can’t be bothered with all the cleaning up afterwards either. Or so I thought.

My sister-in-law has been RAVING about this juicer. In fact she was so impressed that she bought one for us too! And I never thought I would see the day but I am now juicing on a regular basis. I’m even spending my free time searching the internet for new and exciting recipes. The colour of the juice is so rich. And the juice itself is naturally sweet. I’ve been scouring the supermarkets for green leaves and other veggies and fruit. And I found kale, so I made kale and apple juice. Look at the colour of this…

Kale on its own would be too bitter though. It definitely needs the apple. This juicer works differently to other ones I’ve seen. You don’t need to push the veggies down into it. Just drop the pieces into the top and the machine does the rest. It’s not very noisy either. And it’s easy to clean. So far I’ve also tried carrots, tomatoes, oranges, and cabbage. Can’t wait to try more combinations. See more information on how the Hurom juicer works here.

This morning’s juice was one and a half carrots, 3 small ripe tomatoes, and half a Korean pear. It was quite sweet – perhaps a bit too sweet for me. Next time I’ll try some orange or lemon to give it a bit more of a kick. Still good though and it was a fabulous colour to cheer us up on what looks to be another rainy day.

    Where were you able to find yours? Did you have to go through a Hurom distributor?

    The Hurum juicer is easy to find in Korea. It’s often sold on home shopping channels on TV and it’s also on sale in high street electronics stores such as Himart as well as department stores.

    Hi, May i know which shopping centre in Seoul will i be able to find it?

      Hi. You can find it in the kitchen appliances section of any department store such as Shinsegae or Lotte Department Store – these department stores all around Seoul in any shopping area including Myeong Dong and Gangnam. There is also a Himart store on every high street – this may be the cheapest place to buy it, but it’s worth comparing prices in the department stores too. Happy juicing!
