Jack Lalanne Pro Review
With a sleek exterior, high-class finishing and a perfect size that fits right underneath the kitchen cabinets, Jack Lalanne PJP Power Juicer Pro is the affordable juicing solution for an average household. With 3,600 RPM of driving speed operating the stainless steel blades, a mesh filter, and a large feed chute, juicing whole veggies and fruits is second nature. Simply add what you need to be juiced into the centrifugal juicer and let it rip. Once done, the pulp extractor port automatically removes pulp into a separate part of the juicer that is easy to detach and empty.
This juicer isn’t just easy on the eyes, it is also easy to clean and maintain thanks to all its components being dishwasher safe. The Jack Lalanne PJP Power Juicer Pro is a high-performance centrifugal juicer available at fraction of the cost of a masticating juicer. Just don’t expect miracles from this beauty.
About the Jack Lalanne PJP Power Juicer Pro
Jack Lalanne as a juicer brand is best known for its affordable yet dependable solutions. The PJP Power Juicer is considered its top model and supposedly has the best fabrication of them all. We felt the juicer was a tad bit heavy considering its size but overall managed to juice everything it encountered.
The only ingredients that seem to pose a problem are soft and gummy fruits or veggies such as sweet potato. While this is a centrifugal juicer, it doesn’t allow users to hurry up the juicing process. Do things too quickly and you will get a wet pulp residue but do things as instructed in the manual and you can expect maximum output. The juicer is relatively easy to take care of and as long as you maintain it regularly, clean it after every use, it ought to last a lifetime. Folks have continued using their Jack Lalanne PJP Power Juicer Pro for well over 3 years, albeit with a few replacement components.
Ease of Use
We were inclined to give it a perfect 5-star rating for ease of use but because you simply cannot start juicing with a brand new juicer until you have read its manual, it is a tad bit hard getting used to the PJP Power Juicer Pro. Certain things need to be taken care of such as not pushing down too hard or too fast, cutting up ingredients into small and large chunks and cleaning the mesh filter, feed chute regularly between long periods of use.
Clean up seems to be a simple case of dismantling the entire unit, part by part, using the dishwasher and then assembling it all back together. You really don’t have to manually wipe or wash anything since all of it is dishwasher safe.
The juice produced by the Jack Lalanne PJP Power Juicer Pro has a thick consistency with reduced foam and froth. While not at par with masticating produce, it definitely cuts it close. Taste is quite natural, probably because of its lower speeds of operation.
As long as you go slow with the PJP Power Juicer Pro, you ought to produce a lot of juice. The pulp is as dry as it gets unless you try juicing dry fruits with pulpy or leafy veggies. Best to mix juices after doing them individually with this juicer to maintain the high yield.
Could have been more powerful, but we aren’t complaining. The 3,500 RPM motor is ample to operate the stainless steel blades at decent speeds to chop, grind and smash pulp to residue leaving behind clean and healthy juice.
Considering its size, method of operation and overall construction, we have to say that the Jack Lalanne PJP Power Juicer Pro is a quiet beast. With hard ingredients, it tends to vibrate and make a noise but with conventional juicing ingredients, it is quiet enough to watch the television or have a normal conversation.
Not all juicers are designed to be a behemoth. The Jack Lalanne PJP Power Juicer Pro is a standing example of this. While it is tall, it is also narrow with a vertical construction and a wider backend that packs in the pulp storage area. Ability to juice just about anything, low noise, decent power, easy maintenance and an overall positive impression among consumers makes this juicer a reliable and effective buy.
Pros: Easy to use, high juice yield, stainless steel construction and reliable design that is easy on the eyes too!
Cons: Some major parts are made from plastic, metal would have been better.
