Hamilton Beach is an extremely popular manufacturer of kitchen appliances. Selling thirty three million appliances to Americans every year, Hamilton Beach designers are known for their innovative features and the appliances are known to be sturdy and efficient. Today we will discuss their take on juicing with our Hamilton Beach 67601A Big Mouth Juice Extractor review.
With the 67601A the designers of Hamilton Beach wanted to present juicers with all of the features they wanted with none of the hassles they didn’t, and they delivered. This juicer is convenient – the three inch feed chute allows you to place whole fruits and vegetables into it and juices them in seconds. All of the parts can be disassembled, and they are all dishwasher safe. To keep things extra clean, we recommend you place a plastic bag into the pulp catcher to make cleaning even easier.
This juicer can appropriately be used every day and it has the capacity to be used a lot – the pulp bin is extra large so you can juice longer, and if you are a fan of using pulp in your recipes it is not a problem. The motor is 800 watts and beginners and experts alike will appreciate the fact that the machine can easily tear through leafy greens, seaweed and kelp, turning them in to juice.
The stainless steel cutter and strainer makes the juicer efficient – Hamilton Beach claims that you can obtain up to twenty four percent more apple juice from an apple then the leading competitor. The high power motor ensures that you can obtain juice from even the toughest or produce. Because the pulp bin is so large, you can juice continuously without having to stop in the middle to empty out the pulp bin. One problem with the efficiency of the juicer though is its lack of a pitcher that separates the foam from the juice, so depending on what you juice, you may be dealing with a foamy glass of juice.
The juicer comes with some nice built in features – the juice spout is built to funnel into a variety of containers, there is a stainless steel cutter and strainer, and then there is that extra large pulp bin. However, there are some drawbacks with the 67601A Big Mouth Juice Extractor because of its power – it is notoriously loud, and will shake back and forth when you use it.
