It's what a keen health self-manager does every day. So something you do
every day needs to work as well as you can afford. We looked at every juicer
for its abilities in juicing output, ease of use, ease of cleaning and length
of durable service you can expect. We also looked at the basic claims made
for juicers; that slow turning auger systems preserve juice and its vital enzymes.
The slower the juicer, the cooler the process - and the less vital enzyme loss through heat.
If you are serious about juicing, you are serious about health. If
you are serious about health you eat organic. With the cost of organic
fruit and vegetables getting higher every day, it's natural to ask that
the juicer you buy extracts more of your favorite juices. Let's be
clear here. Favorite juices for 95% of juicer owners are carrot, and
apple, with wheat grass a close third. All juicers are less efficient
on certain juicing tasks, but if they do best on our favorites then
that's the obvious choice - not just for speed of operation but for the
many hundreds of dollars you can save with a more efficient juicer.
The Angel tested highest in all three areas: carrots, apples and wheat grass.
The Angel's secret is its solid stainless steel augers - almost double the size of all the other models.
The Angel has less parts than its nearest competitor, the Kempo, and unlike the
Kempo, you can move from vegetable to fruit with no change of juicing screens. This
is quite an important point considering most of us love a mixed juice such as apple,
carrot and ginger. The Kempo requires partial disassembly and washing every time you change
from fruit to vegetable. Hard vegetables and fruit can be fed more easily into the less expensive
Matstone and Oscar, but produce much less juice than the Angel juicer.
The Angel's grinding augers are also by far the easiest to install before use.
Because it is a triturating juicer rather than a macerating juicer, the Angel doesn't
grab or bite off chunks of carrot or apple. It requires a little more feed effort than
the Matstone or the Oscar, and is very similar to the Kempo.
The Angel has only 3 main components needing proper cleaning: 2
augers and the juicing screen.
The plunger and the screen cover need a rinse, as does the
attachment point on the juicer.
The Kempo's cleaning is far more complex and it has nooks and
crannies where juice pulp catches. As already mentioned, it also needs a
double cleanup if you are making a combo cocktail. A special
'toothpick' tool is even supplied and must be kept handy, whereas the
Angel can use any normal kitchen brush and bottlebrush. (One is supplied) The Oscar and Matstone have simpler cleansing requirements than the Kempo.
Given that the Angel costs more than all the other units, we need
to know how long it's going to keep supplying us with
health-supporting, enzyme-packed juices. The Angel is the only stainless
steel juicer on the market.
It has a big motor that runs far more slowly than the Kempo (which
means greater enzyme-saving ability).
It also has every required safety feature as required for its
international CE certification.
We will happily offer a 5 year motor warranty on this robust system
over and above our normal WCH 2 year parts and labor warranty.
In terms of the value for money, the ongoing cost of fruit & vegetable is critical.
We tested to ascertain how many grams of carrot juice was created from 300g of carrots.
We then took the waste pulp from the Kempo and passed it through the Angel...
Based on our tests, and calculating the cost of one 250ml. carrot juice per day for a family of four, the Angel would save you over $7000 over 5 years, (compared with output from the same amount of carrots in a Kempo juicer in our tests).
- It gives you more juice - Much more! Take a
look at either of our live tests and their results here. There’s simply
no doubt; even though it costs more, it saves you real money every
day, and avoids you wasting precious juice that you'd otherwise throw
- Save time, save water, save juice - You don't
need to change over nozzles etc during a mixed juice creation. Cheaper
units can't match Angel's all-round ability to juice any combo of fruit
and vegetable you create.
- Stainless Steel means a lifetime of juicing -
It's not plastic, it's stainless. It's solid, built like we used to
build cars. Stainless steel's germicidal ability works every time you
make a juice. Plastic, nylon, lexan, or other polycarbonate materials
can contaminate your food!
- Solid stainless steel gears - The heart of the
system, the two powerful gears, are solid medical grade 304 stainless
steel. No plastic, no lexan, just stainless.
- Slow Food Movement - At 86 RPM, the Angel is
mechanically far slower than cheaper twin-gear juicers. Slower means
cooler, and cooler means more immunity-building live enzymes in your
juices. Yet, it's still as fast in operation as other twin gear juicers
because of its unique extraction-screen design.
- Three Horses - Angel’s twin gears apply the
equivalent of 3HP of extraction energy. It means more juice, more vital
energy in the juice – and because it’s so well-built, you'll still get
years of juices from your investment.
- Two Stage Extraction System - Stage One applies
constant pressure on the fruit or vegetable. Stage two grinds and
masticates, creating the driest pulp of any juicer available!
- Triple Screen system - One-piece integrated screen gives more juice every time.
- Keeping It Simple - One screen for all means
simple operation, fast wash up and fully interchangeable fruit and
vegetable choice in the same juicing session. Pulp adjustment? Who
- Keeping it safe - Surface pesticides, fungicides and miticides end up in the ultra-dry pulp; not in your juice.
- You find it, Angel will juice it - Extremely
wide range of items you can juice, from mangoes to wheat grass to pine
needles! Enjoy your own soy milk, tofu, meat pate, baby food, frozen
fruit sorbet, and even peanut butter.
- Safety in Design - The Angel comes packed with exclusive safety features including:
- Automatic thermal protection device and anti-jamming automatic reverse give you as user, peace of mind.
The automatic motor thermostat prevents the motor from overheating.
- Extra Rocker Switch
- Internal Gear Protection
- Reinforcement of Switch Panel
- Double Protection of motor and Main Housing Unit, and Screen Housing
- Blockages from overload or jamming can easily be cleared with the Reverse Action switch
- Inbuilt extra quiet cooling fan prevents motor overheating
The Super Angel Juicer's twin gears are designed to operate at a
slow RPM in order to keep almost 100% of the enzymes and nutrients
alive during the juicing process. The Super Angel Juicer is the only
juicer on the market that limits twin gear speeds to 82 RPM.
Accordingly, to maintain the juicer's effectiveness you should not
overload the feeding chute. Doing so may cause the gears to jam and
limit maximum enzyme and nutrient extraction.
- Completely depress food into the feeding chute with the wooden
pusher and then feed additional food. Don't worry about depressing the
wooden pusher till it touches the twin, it will not harm the gears or
plunger. (The plunger is made from the same high quality wood as
those found in fine chopping blocks. Any accidental particles of
cellulose scrapped off from contact with the twin gears are natural and
non-toxic and will harmlessly pass through with the pulp.)
- If jamming occurs, press and hold the‘Reverse’ Button for 2 to 3
seconds (or press and hold down as required until it clears) and then
press the Start button to continue juicing. Depending on the
severity of the jam, you may need to repeat this a few times.
- Carrots: Cutting carrots aren't necessary as long as the
diameters fit into the feeding chute. However for best results, we
suggest you cut the carrots lengthwise into 5 to 6 inches parts and
always insert the thinner part first as it would be grabbed more
effectively by the twin gears.
- Please insert a piece after one piece crushed down completely.
- Do not put a number of small chopped pieces of carrots at a time into the feeding chute, otherwise it will get stuck.
- Do not apply excessive force while pushing food down into the
feeding chute. Only moderate pressure is required to avoid jamming or
- Dandelion, Parsley, Endive or other leafy greens: By feeding
small, handful amounts at a time, the leafy greens will be self-fed
into the juicer by the twin gears. Please insert the stem (stalk) part
of the leafy greens first for self-feeding.
- Wheat grass: Feed small, handful amounts of wheat grass into the
feeding chute. The wooden pusher may not be necessary as the wheat
grass will be self-fed into the machine as long as appropriate amounts
are fed at a time.
- Do not overload.
