Hamilton Beach is a major commercial and home appliance manufacturer, selling blenders, toasters, slow cookers and other things for the kitchen. They are a competitive brand – selling at a rate of Black and Decker, Cuisinart, Sunbeam and other top sellers. Today we are taking a look at one of this brand’s juice extractors, in our Hamilton Beach Juice Extractor Big Mouth review.
Let’s take a look at the specs first – the this is a larger sized juicer weighing in at 7.8 pounds at a size of 11.5 x 7.8 x 14.4 inches. A juicer this big can equip the large twenty ounce juice container. Not to be outdone, the pulp bin is extra large as well. It is powered by an 800 watt motor that can break through most produce.
The juicer won’t keep you waiting long due to it’s 1.1 Hp motor, and you won’t have to do much prep work either. The feed chute is wide enough to fit most of what you could put into a juicer, and according to the manufacturer, it can extract the juice from a whole apple in three seconds. We didn’t time it, but the machine does extract juice quickly.
The benefits that this juicer brings to the table are mostly due to its large size though. The larger than usual pulp bin allows you to juice for longer, and you can save mass amounts of pulp to use in your recipes. The large juice container is big enough to double as a serving pitcher as well, which is a feature some juicers will like.
The parts are removable, and dishwasher safe, making for an easy clean and upkeep. A really great feature of the juicer that is not so well understood is the very fine screens – fine enough that you can juice strawberries and blueberries and not have to deal with seeds. The blades are fine as well, sifting seeds from berries and tomatoes easily from the juice.
The juicer can juice leafy greens, kale, spinach, swiss chard and the like, but it won’t necessarily do a good job. Other vegetables are a better fit for this machine, like carrots, or beets. Also, this large machine can run loudly. The upshot of this is that you won’t have to run this juicer for long.
- Removable parts, dishwasher safe – easy clean up
- 800 watt motor
- Large capacity for juicing – twenty ounce juice container and extra large pulp container
- Does excellent job straining seeds from berries and tomatoes
- You can juice longer and use pulp more efficiently
- Shorter waiting time
- Large size takes up serious real estate
Final thoughts on Hamilton Beach 67608A Juicer
This is a decent juicer. It does the job but maybe for a size commitment this large a better option for the home might be a juicer that will produce a higher quality of juice, or at least offer alternative uses other than just juicing. We would suggest this as a good buy, but it’s not on our short list of best juicers.
