Holy shit! There goes my potty mouth again. I guess I’m starting to get more comfortable around you guys. I ordered a Norwalk Juicer. Do I even need to say anymore???? Ok, I will! I ordered it on Sunday night. :)
Greg and I have been talking about the awesomeness of the Norwalk Juicer (a.k.a. the ultimate in juicing, hands down, the highest quality, bestest – yes, I just wrote “bestest” juice, because it warrants that. Ever. On the planet.) I’m sure you can sense a bit of my excitement. Where was I? Oh yeah, Greg and I have been discussing the Norwalk for about three years. I’ve had it on my vision board since then. Recently, we decided to take the plunge and buy the sucker!
Why is it the best? Well, the short of it is this:
- Cold-pressed juice for the ultimate juicing experience
- Massively high nutrient content in your juice compared to other juicers (check out these laboratory stats)
- Highest yield (The pulp comes out dull colored and dry like a wafer, so you’re getting every drip from your organic produce. Apparently, animals won’t even eat the pulp because all of the nutrition is gone.)
Don’t be discouraged by the price. No sticker shock. Truth is… it pays for itself. Yup. If you juice a lot, and we do, it can pay for itself in about a year. If you juice modestly, maybe three years. Juice just a bit? Ok, longer, but it has a 12 year warranty, so eventually it pays for itself! Here’s how they put it on their California site (great videos there of Norwalk Juicers in the news)
The Norwalk Juicer Produces 50-100% more juice than other juicers: Based on organic produce costing an average of $1.50 per pound people who drink 12 glasses of juice per day will save $3000 per year in organic produce using the Norwalk over another juicer! Anyone who drinks 4 glasses of juice per day will save $1000 per year in produce, for the rest of their lives!
According to their other website where I placed my order:
Complete extraction. The tremendous pressure exerted by the Norwalk Hydraulic Press gently and completely extracts the natural fruit sugars, vitamins, trace minerals, enzymes, and other vital elements. This imparts to the juice an extremely fine quality and flavor which is unequaled by any other method of juice extraction.
Frozen Juices. Norwalk juices may be deep frozen and held for periods of up to 6 months with very little loss in food values. Green juices may be made up in quantities in season and frozen in ice cube trays and stored in plastic bags in your deep freeze.
Storage of juices. The Hydraulic Press method of juice extraction provides a minimum mixing of air with the juices which results in very slow oxidation or decomposition. This is why Norwalk juices may be kept refrigerated in closed containers for several days with little, if any, apparent loss of flavor, color or, vital elements. With the Norwalk it is possible to keep the refrigerator stocked at all times with a variety of delicious and satisfying juices with only occasional use of the juicer required.
Simple and efficient. So simple, that a 25-pound sack of carrots may be juiced in 20 minutes, providing 7 to 8 quarts of juice. Many Norwalk owners juice only 1 or 2 times a week to keep their refrigerator stocked with a variety of fresh juices.
Let me just say this… I loaned my Hurom, my current juicer of choice, to my BFF and I’ve been using my Green Star (the pic over to the right is from this morning… that was for my breakfast juice). What a pain in the ass that thing is. Good heavens! Now, the Hurom is a very good juicer, but it has its share of cons. It produces a lot of foam and doesn’t strain enough so I always have to strain after juicing. Now that I know the potential of the Norwalk, the Hurom is going to start paling in comparison.
So, I’m beyond friggin’ stoked. My cells are doing a happy dance. I’m just trying to come up with a name for it now. Hmmm.
Of course… I will blog many deets once I try my new baby out. Count on it. There are many things to learn to make the Norwalk experience simple and fun. I’ve been studying diligently… scouring the forums, blog posts, reviews, etc. I’m only a Norwalk Padawan right now, but I will soon be a Norwalk Jedi.
