About PowerXL Self-Cleaning Juicer
As per the company claims, PowerXL juicer is your one-stop solution for a whole vegetable and fruit juicer designed to give you a swift juicing experience, unlike any other ordinary juicer. It eliminates the need for peeling, cutting, or chopping – and just like that, it can make your life a whole lot easier. Not just that, this wonder product boasts a non-drip spout that you can rotate in any direction to make sure you don’t spill the juice on your counters. The brand also claims that the juicer has an unmatched ability to extract 30% more juice than most of its competitors. And then comes the most useful trait – this almighty juicer claims to clear all the pulp and the waste just by pressing a simple self-cleaning button while allowing the water into the juicer’s chute.
What else could we possibly want? We think that’s it. That’s all we need in a juicer we spend $120 for. Now, the real question is whether or not this juicer stands tall to its claims or not. Let’s find out.
Key Features – PowerXL Juicer
1. High-Speed Juicer
The juicer boasts a 1200-watt motor that rotates at up to 23000 RPMs. It can work fast in extracting a good quantity of juice in less time.
2. Large Chute Capacity
The chute is really-really large. As we said, you won’t need to cut most of the fruits. Also, it can accommodate more fruits and work fast extracting juice from them.
3. 3 Speed Modes
You can adjust the speed of the motor according to the softness or firmness of the fruit you’re putting into the chute. This feature comes in handy.
4. Removable No-Drip Spout
It comes with a spout that rotates in all directions to avoid drips. It extends the juicer’s functionality and helps to keep counters clean. You can also remove the spout as needed after extracting juice.
5. Self-Cleaning Function
The self-cleaning function might not be at par with what they advertise on TV. Yet, it does most of the work.
Trying PowerXL Juicer
When we tried this self-cleaning juicer by PowerXL, we were pretty much satisfied with what it had to offer. We were surprised to see that it could almost accommodate most of the whole fruits and vegetables and thus, almost eliminates the need for chopping. However, you might need to peel off some of the fruits and vegetables if you don’t like the taste of their peels in the juice. Some larger fruits like pineapple and watermelon would have to be cut into halves or further smaller pieces to run through the chute. And honestly, I don’t think anybody would mind doing that. The juice would come out real fine, and the quantity was also good (could be better). However, we don’t like that the device heats a little while making the juice, and it isn’t a cold-press juicer. But it doesn’t heat that much, so we think no nutrients will be lost in the process. However, high-speed juicers tend to break down some of the nutrients by oxidizing them.
Was The Juice Quality Good?
We won’t say Yes or No, but it wasn’t better than any other juicer in the market. The juice come out a little foamy and heated, which we didn’t like much. We’d still prefer juice from the cold-pressed juicers because they taste a little good and fresher. Also, the juice from a centrifugal juicer only lasts 24 hours.
Based on our experience, here are some pros and cons of the PowerXL Juicer that we came across:
1. Saves a Whole Lot of Time
The most time-consuming thing about making juice at home is to chop off the fruits-vegetables and clean the juicer after that. Since the product in discussion eliminates the need for both, you save a lot of time with the PowerXL juicer. And honestly, this is the best-selling point for this juicer.
2. No Nutrients Are Lost
Though the juicer is not a cold-press juicer since it heats the fruits and veggies a little while making the juice, it’s just moderate heating, and no nutrients are lost. You can rely on this product to get highly nutritious juice at home.
3. BPA Free
PowerXL juicer comes with free containers from BPA (Bisphenol) free, which is considered a very harmful chemical in most juicer containers.
4. Promotes Nutrients Consumption
Honestly, we don’t consume as many vegetables and fruits as we should be in our day-to-day life. Since PowerXL juicer provides and easy way to make juice at home, it naturally promotes vegetable and fruit consumption and puts us healthy.
5. No Pulp Buildup
The self-cleaning feature of the device comes in handy. It cleans itself quite deeply. Once cleaned using this feature, you will not find any build-dup or pulp residue in the device.
6. Comes With a Handy Recipe Book
We loved how the device came with a recipe book with so many healthy and nutritious recipes. If you are not sure what to stock in your fridge for a healthy juice, this recipe book might come in handy.
1. Not so self-cleaning
You might have seen how the product is marketed on TV. Well, its self-cleaning feature might be useful to an extent, but as I dug deeper into the product, you still have to wash it to clean it completely. The good news is that it is dishwasher safe, and you can save yourself a little bit of time.
2. Short Warranty Coverage
This high-speed juicer only gives you a 90-days moneyback guarantee, which we think is too low compared to other best-selling brands in the market. They should offer at least one year warranty in our opinion. Considering the price and warranty, the juicer might not be made of premium and long-lasting materials. To compare with other juicers in the same price range before buying.
3. Little Less Efficient at Extracting Juice
High-speed juicers are usually less efficient at extracting juice, especially from the leafy greens. It’s another issue we think buyers must take into consideration.
4. Frothy & Foamy Texture
The texture of the juice is too frothy and foamy, which doesn’t exactly feel like consuming liquid. This might be a good thing for those who like such texture.
5. Filters Out The Pulp Completely
If you’re using this juicer, your pulp will go to waste. You won’t be able to have any of the pulp nutrients or taste.
6. Takes Up A Lot of Space
The juicer is a little bulky and takes a lot of shelf space. We usually don’t like having such gadgets on our shelves all the time.
How much does PowerXL Juicer cost?
