juicer/blender to use whole juices.


Recommended Posts

Hello! I am thinking about making tomato juice this year and I would like to use the entire tomato. I have Early Girls and if my polish linguist survives the EB I will add some for thickening since hubby likes thick juice. I wanted to avoid peeling and seeding and thought maybe there is a blender that will pulverize these adequately for a thick juice? My MIL has a Vitamix she swears by, but she lives in another state so I cannot try hers out. I thought I would get opinions if anyone uses a blender/juicer in this fashion and how does your machine hold up?

Vitamix is the gold standard as far as blenders go.  Some of the lines within the Vitamix family seem to be a bit better but they all do the job.

 

Marvelous machines for smoothies.  Wish I had one.  Damm pricey though

Many Vitamix clones available.  I have a BioloMix (Clone name too) T5200 and it works fine. Lazada can get one

I did pretty serious home juicing for a while.  Tomatoes are in the mid-range of difficulty for juicing machines because of the skins, seeds and hard texture unless at the peak of ripeness.

Power is important with juicers.  Blenders and discount store juicers tend to be in the under 500 watt range and tend to bog down, creating more pulp than juice.  They also have a tendency to overheat so one has to run them for 45 seconds, then let the machine cool for a few minutes...very annoying.

 

Ultimately, I ended-up with this very satisfactory Panasonic juicer.  It was sufficiently powerful, had an adequately sized  feed tube and a large capacity.  Downsides were fairly complicated clean-up and it's large size.

I gave-up juicing because I saw limited benefits for the work involved.  Buying and preparing the fruit and veggies takes a lot of time and the process is messy.  Unless you have a compost bin or pigs, the left over pulp becomes a smelly annoyance.
