REVIEW – In today’s world, eating and drinking healthy are popular efforts that have become a sought after lifestyle. In response to this demand, thousands of appliances have flooded the market, all offering to take your healthy ingredients and turn them into even healthier dishes or juices. I love fruit, but I can never seem to get into the rhythm of eating all of the fruit I purchase. However, since I do drink a lot of liquids, the idea of turning the fruit and vegetables into tasty and healthy juices is very appealing to me. There are tons of Juicers that promise to do the job of producing the most juice, in an easy way, and with minimal cleanup. Let’s see how the Homever Slow Masticating Juicer handles the task.
What is it?
The Homever Slow Masticating Juicer is a slow masticating juicer for fruits and vegetables, with a quiet motor and reverse function. It has also been designed to be easy to clean and it is BPA-Free

On the front side of the base, there is the receptacle that the juicing extractor mechanism connects to.
On the opposite side of the base is the power switch. It includes the on, off and the reverse functions. Below the power switch at the bottom is the built-in power cord.
The juicing extractor mechanism that includes the filter, propelling rod and extractor connects to the base.
The Juicer is very easy to assemble, and I was able to put the few parts together in seconds. Then, I set it up on my crowded testing counter in the kitchen and I was ready to go., The only challenge I faced was where and how to place the container baffle, but I think I figured it out correctly.
For this test, I decided to use an apple, three clementines, a peach and a bunch of red seedless grapes. The ingredients are shown below.
I started putting the fruit in the feeding tube and very lightly pressed down on the propelling rod.
When I was done with feeding the fruit through the extractor, I had one container with all of the pulp and about 2 glasses of great tasting juice. Maybe I did not place the Container Baffle correctly because I did have some foam in the glass, but I have no problem with the foam. Not sure why some folks do, but for me, it was just great.
The picture below shows the resulting pulp. Everything processed easily so I did not have to use the reverse function. However, I did test it and it works by reversing the direction of the spiraling system.
As shown below, taking the juicer apart is simple and that makes it easy to clean. I did not even have to use the Cleaning Brush. I just ran the filter and other parts under hot tap water and everything cleaned up great.
What I like
- Simple and effective operation
- It works with very little effort
- Produces really nice pure juice
- It is easy to clean
- The build quality is good and it is lightweight
What I’d change
- A more detailed User Guide that is also easier to read. (Larger print and diagrams)
I have tried several juicers prior to this one. The ones I previously tried were ok, but they always seemed to produce less juice than I expected, required quite a bit of effort to “push” the ingredients through the blades, and were not that easy to clean up afterward. While some of them seemed a bit more robust, this juicer not only really gets the juice out of the ingredients, but it also does so producing pure juice with no reside, and the clean up is quick and easy. So far, I give it 2 thumbs up!!
