Buying a Slow Juicer in Thailand
As you probably know by now I’m very much into juicing and feel great for it. I have more energy during the day and no longer need to drink coffee. Over the new year I bought myself a Philips centrifugal juicer. These kinds of juicers are around 4-7,000 Baht. They are great and do a wonderful job, but they are not perfect.
When I bought my juicer I knew about the more expensive masticating juicers. These are sometimes called a slow juicer. These are priced from 12,000 Baht upwards. I know these were better but at the time I couldn’t justify the price as I thought juicing might just be a passing fad. It hasn’t been so far.
Although I love my juicer, there are a few problems. The juice separates quite quickly and you can’t store for long. On the other hand the slow juicers make juice you can keep 2-3 days, doesn’t separate and the colours are richer. The pulp is also drier which means you get more juice.
This juicer is a Hurom-500 and costs 13,900 Baht at Central Chidlom. Older models are 12,900 Baht. If you have a 1-Card you can get a 10% discount. Very tempting to buy one.
