Deciding between the Angel Juicer and Norwalk?

  • 4

Hi friends,

My girlfriend is keen to get a juicer for home use. She wants to use it for fruit, but also for vegetables that she finds hard to chew e.g. cabbage and some greens.

She is looking for something that will last for a long term and is easy to use, maintain and has good service.

She is located in the USA.

I have done research on this board, and it seems that the 'better' models are either the Angel Juicer or the Norwalk.

I understand that there are also options from Omega and Champion, but in my limited knowledge of juicers, it seems that the Angel or Norwalk models have something more to offer...apart from being more expensive of course.

Which juicer do you recommend for us?

Thank you!

    1. Norwalk is definitely the 'Cadillac' of the juicers. And the only one the Gerson Institute recommends for the Gerson therepy. But unless you are a hard core juicer, you may want to check out some of the others. It is believed that the Norwalk produces the most nutritious juice because it does not introduce oxygene or heat to the juice. That is why it is used for the Gerson Therepy. It is major expense (as much as a good range and oven) heavy and takes up a good amount of space. I would suggest going on You Tube and checking out all the comparisons and reviews of juicers. I would say that if I felt I needed the most nutritious juice for my health, money was not an issue and drank a lot of fresh juice, I wouldnot hesitate to get a Norwalk.

        If I'm not mistaken, Gerson recommends using a Champion juicer combined with an hydraulic hand-press as a sort of "poor man's Norwalk." I not only own both a Norwalk and a Champion but know someone who also has both, and a hand-press, and who says that the Champion/press combo is a good substitute. It involves a lot more kitchen real estate, though, and more work.

      2. You should have done a "Norwalk juicer" search here before posting. I started a thread when I first got mine: http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/6082... .
