Main Body and Motor Unit

Green Pow­er KPE Juice Extrac­tor comes with a plas­tic body and 150W, 11Volt; 60 Hz; 1.4 AMP motor that rotates the auger with a slow 160 RPM speed. The well-made motor is also equipped with an auto­mat­ic ther­mo­stat that pre­vents it from overheating.

The juicer is very qui­et dur­ing the oper­a­tion pro­duc­ing only 60 DB that is com­pa­ra­ble with nor­mal con­ver­sa­tion in the office or restaurant.

Yield

From 2 lbs/0.9 kg of car­rots, Green Pow­er KPE Juicer extracts approx. 480–530 ml of juice depend­ing on the fresh­ness and thick­ness of the carrot.

Gears/Auger

The juicer has com­pact twin gears that are only 4 1/2″ long and com­prise of two parts — stain­less steel and acetyl resin. The twin gears are 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.

Juicing Screen

The juicer comes with tree juic­ing screens:

  • Stan­dard screen for pro­cess­ing firm pro­duce and leafy greens;
  • Fruit screen for pulpy fruit;
  • Blank screen for nut but­ter and frozen treats.

The stan­dard and fruit screens made of plas­tic part with stain­less steel mesh­es, the blank screen is all plastic.

Chute and Produce Feeding

It comes with a 1.6”/40.6mm chute open­ing, so will eas­i­ly eat the whole car­rots while beets will need pre-cutting.

Containers

The juicer comes with a juic­ing cup and pulp con­tain­ers, they both are unique.

The juic­ing cup is made of the BPA-free plas­tic 35oz. (with mea­sur­ing up to 21 oz.)/1L con­tain­er and has inbuilt bio-ceram­ic mag­nets that allow the extract­ed juice to store for longer.

The pulp con­tain­er is made of stain­less steel.

Pressure Adjustment Juicing Knob

The juicer comes with two juic­ing knobs – veg­eta­bles and fruits. The veg­etable goes with a stan­dard screen and is designed for juice extrac­tion from firm fruits and veg­eta­bles, leafy greens, and wheatgrass.

The fruit knobs are designed for soft fruits pro­cess­ing and go with large mesh fruit juic­ing screen. The two screens allow us to extract max­i­mum juice from a large vari­ety of ingredients.
