The juicer has compact twin gears that are only 4 1/2″ long and comprise of two parts – the stainless steel and acetyl resin. The twin gears also equipped with a bio-ceramic magnetic system installed inside of gears (producing a magnetic field of 4,200 gausses) that allows you to maximize the nutritional value of juice and store it for longer (up to 72 hours).
The two closely aligned gears are do not touch each other, so they will not produce any craps from metal friction. They also have recessed cutting teeth between them which eliminates the need to produce pre-cut and prevent clogging of stringy ingredients.
