Hurom H-AE Slow Juicer Product Overview

The Hurom H-AE Slow Juicer exterior was designed by the Italian firm, Giugiaro Design, the business unit of world-class Italdesign; well known as makers of production and concept cars for Ferrari, Maserati, Lamborghini, and more.

Appearance

Hurom H-AE Slow Juicer Review - Side ViewThe Hurom H-AE Slow Juicer limited edition model combines gorgeous looks with the best of juicer engineering. It has a streamlined look to it, with a simple, prominent power button that evokes thoughts of the luxury class automotive experience.

The control area is visually divided from the juice extracting section of the machine by a contrasting diagonal color scheme.

Slow Squeeze Juicing

Single auger slow-juicing squeezes fruit and vegetables at a very slow speed of only 43 rpm to mimic the motion and speed of juicing by hand. The Hurom H-AE Slow Juicer preserves the most nutrients, vitamins, and enzymes of any type of juicer while squeezing the maximum amount of juice possible out of the produce.

Slow squeezing does not mean that juicing is slower than other methods of producing juice. The Hurom H-AE Slow Juicer makes juice as quickly as many centrifugal high-speed type juicers.

Juice keeps its fresh taste,  natural color, flavor, and nutrient value longer than that made by other types of juicers due to less oxidation and heat. Slow juicing produces the healthiest juice of all juicing methods. However, juice should be consumed as soon as possible to get the most nutrients. Refrigerate leftover juice in an airtight container for no more than 48 hours.

Pulp Control

Are you concerned with the amount of pulp in your juice? The Hurom H-AE Slow Juicer comes with a control lever and a fine and coarse strainer so that you can vary the amount of pulp in your juice. Make your juice clear and pulp-free or with little to lots of pulp, according to your taste.

Hurom H-AE Slow Juicer Review - Fruits and Vegetables

What Fruits And Veggies Does It Juice?

The Hurom H-AE Slow Juicer can handle hard and soft fruits and vegetables as well as leafy greens, cruciferous vegetables (such as  Arugula, Bok Choy, Broccoli, Brussel Sprouts, Kale, Radish, Turnip, etc.), nuts, and soybeans.

Cut vegetables and hard fruits so that the pieces will fall through the feeder chute without needing to be pushed down. Chop carrots and other root vegetables into 1/2″ discs or cubes.

Remove skins from citrus fruits. If the Hurom H-AE Slow Juicer becomes clogged, feed a different textured fruit or vegetable through.

Roll leafy greens into cigar shapes and fold in half, making sure that they are not too large to fit in the feeder chute. Wet leaves and very dry leaves will not pass through the juicer. Wash them and pat dry with a kitchen towel before putting them into the juicer.

  1. Great product! We are living in an era where people are focusing more on their health. We are more health conscious and juicing our fruits/vegetables is the order of the day…well at least for me. I like the appearance and the fact that its easy to clean. Very good Esteadman

    1. Shaneek,

      Thanks for visiting and commenting on my Hurom H-AE Slow Juicer Review. I hope that you found what you were looking for and that I was able to help you decide on what is the best blender for you.

  2. One major design flaw. The pusher will hit the squeezing screw (auger) if it is fully inserted. This causes the entire chamber to turn, making the machine turn itself off. The machine was properly assembled, with the auger seated as far down as possible. This happened 3 times while I was using the pusher. Otherwise, a great juicer

    1. Hi Larry,

      Thanks for the comment. Was going to ask if you have notified Hurom of this defect, but I see your comment on their website. Will keep watching to see their reply and copy it here for everyone’s benefit.

      Update: Larry G. updated his comment on the Hurom website as follows:

      “Larry G. Mar 27, 2018
      Moved up another star
      As an update to my review 2 days ago, I will mention that the pusher which came with the H-AE juicer was the wrong one, NOT a design flaw as I had initially believed. I contacted Hurom and received a very quick response. I was informed that the pusher was incorrect for my model, and was told that the correct one would be sent to me. In all fairness, this juicer was actually a sample. My daughter is a fitness editor for a major women’s magazine and was offered to have the juicer demonstrated about a year ago. Following the demo, she was given one of them, and I was informed it was the first and only one here in the country at the time. So…………it wasn’t a retail packaged unit, and the inclusion of an incorrect pusher is therefore more well understood. I have therefore increased my rating to 4 stars, although it may end up deserving a 5 star review once I have had more chance to use it. As I mentioned in the original review, I am quite impressed with the dryness of the pulp. It’s noticeably different than my original Hurom………..which is still making excellent juice.”
