This GP27 model is actually an upgrade to their previous model. A key difference is that the auger on this machine contains a stainless steel tip compared to the nylon tip of its predecessor. This improves both performance and longevity. Also, the auger itself has been slightly redesigned to produce even greater juice yields.
While many of us are now aware of the health benefits of drinking wheatgrass (and fresh-made juice in general), we may not all like the process of juicing, and especially cleaning up afterward. The cool thing is that this Healthy Juicer by Lexen is efficient, rugged, and actually quite easy to clean up.
This Healthy Juicer is endorsed by and sold by the Hippocrates Health Institute, a leading center for alternative health and healing.
Manual juicers do tend to be a little easier to clean away than their electric counterparts (but not always). However, Lexen has made the extra effort to make this process as painless as possible. It literally takes a couple of minutes to dissemble AND clean. Just rinse off with soapy warm water. There are zero metal cutting blades that contain hundreds of little holes that you have to clean the wheatgrass juicer fibers out of with a brush. Excess pulp is ejected neatly from the front end cap into a bowl, making for easy disposal. You will need to supply your own bowl though!
The sucker base is a neat feature and makes it easy to attach to any smooth table or kitchen counter. The sucker base holds up to 100lbs of force.
All the material used to make the Lexen Healthy Juicer are non-toxic to FDA standards.
