Design and Materials

The Z‑star is a good look­ing man­u­al juicer and does not look out of place in the most mod­ern of kitchens.

The Z‑Star man­u­al juicer fea­tures an exclu­sive sin­gle-auger design that can extract superb qual­i­ty juice with­out the need for elec­tri­cal pow­er. The exclu­sive­ness of the design comes from the fact that this machine has iden­ti­cal to the motor-pow­ered Tribest Solostar III Juicer major con­struc­tion­al parts that include — auger hous­ing, auger, dual-stage juic­ing screen, screen lock­ing cap, and even extra attach­ments. This makes this juicer able to process a wide range of ingre­di­ents and even per­form addi­tion­al food pro­cess­ing tasks.

 Base Unit: The main body of the juicer is made of alu­minum which is nice­ly paint­ed to give a rust-free juic­ing envi­ron­ment. The crank han­dle is also very strong, made of met­al, and eas­i­ly remov­able. There­fore, when you are not using the juicer, you can elim­i­nate the amount of room that the juicer con­sumes. The base unit comes with the met­al made G‑clamp that is designed to fix the juicer to the work­top surface.

Hous­ing: The juicer cham­ber with the feed­ing chute is made of see-through and durable East­man Tri­tan copoly­ester BPA-free mate­r­i­al, so you can view the effect of the auger as it crush­es and press­es out the juice of the pro­duce. The feed­ing chute has a cir­cu­lar 1.8”/45 mm in diam­e­ter opening.

Auger: The auger has a spe­cial design for swal­low­ing the ingre­di­ents easy for chew­ing. It is made of extra strong and chem­i­cal resis­tant GE Ultem resin to guar­an­tee a long ser­vice life.

Screen: The juice screen is made of stain­less steel and you are also pro­vid­ed with a tooth­brush type screen for clean­ing the screen. The screen has a large meshed area divid­ed into the coarse and fine holes arear that allow extract­ing max­i­mum juice yield from most of the ingredients.

Lock­ing cap: The juic­ing screens are locked to the hous­ing with the lock­ing cap, the lock­ing cap also fea­tures the adjustable end cap that reg­u­lates the pres­sure applied to the ingre­di­ents for max­i­miz­ing juice yield, basi­cal­ly for juic­ing wheat­grass or leafy greens the user should fix it to the max­i­mum posi­tion and for soft­er ingre­di­ents to relax it more.

Extra attach­ments: The juicer also includes in the set a range of extra attach­ments such as a homog­e­niz­ing screen and 4 noz­zles set for extrud­ing pas­ta — fet­tuc­ci­ni noz­zle, juic­ing noz­zle, spaghet­ti noz­zle, and homog­e­niz­ing nozzle.

Addi­tion­al­ly, it comes with Plas­tic Plunger to push down ingre­di­ents, Clean­ing Brush, and Fun­nel Lid.

Containers

Comes with cus­tom-made juice col­lec­tion con­tain­ers that fit nice­ly under the body. It does not include the pulp col­lec­tion container.

Using and Cleaning

Assem­bling and dis­as­sem­bling: Set­ting up the Z‑star for use is a dod­dle and it could be accom­plished even with­out read­ing the instruc­tions in the man­u­al. To start using it you just fix­ing it on a smooth lev­el sur­face, with the G‑clamp, the juicer base have rub­ber grips to avoid any dam­age to your work surface.

Next, the han­dle should be attached to the base and the Auger be placed in the auger hous­ing and lock in place the auger hous­ing to the base with retain­ing ring, next screw the lock­ing cap with the noz­zle to the auger housing.

It nor­mal­ly takes 30 sec­onds to dis­as­sem­ble the juicer.

Clean­ing: Clean­ing the juicer parts is com­par­a­tive­ly easy and as with all juicer machines, if you wash imme­di­ate­ly after juic­ing, it becomes a lot eas­i­er when you have let the juice pulp dry onto the juic­ing screen, the screen with sticky pulp you can soak in the warm water for 1–2 hours. Nev­er use hot or boil­ing water (above 40 degrees C) for clean­ing the unit and parts as this results in defor­ma­tion or oth­er dam­ages. Remem­ber that the juicer is not dish­wash­er safe. There is a brush pro­vid­ed to eas­i­ly clean the screen cylinder.

Functionality

wheatgrass juice

The Z‑Star man­u­al juicer is designed for high­ly gen­tle and effec­tive ingre­di­ents pro­cess­ing and extracts a decent amount of superb qual­i­ty juice from a vari­ety of ingre­di­ents with­out the need for elec­tri­cal pow­er. Since it oper­ates at a very slow speed the final prod­uct comes out with low oxi­da­tion and thus has a long shelf–life. The juice does not seem to con­tain a large amount of froth as pro­duced by most elec­tric pow­ered twin juicers.

Although man­u­al crank juicers are usu­al­ly the ulti­mate wheat­grass and leafy greens device, the Z‑Star Z‑710 also han­dles well oth­er ingre­di­ents, no won­der, it has the con­struc­tion­al part sim­i­lar to the elec­tric Tribest juicers. So it can process:

  • It will deliv­er about 5 ounces of juice out of 0.5 lbs. of wheat­grass, more­over, feed­ing wheat­grass through this man­u­al juicer takes no longer than feed­ing it through an elec­tric juicer, and also not much effort is need­ed for turn­ing the crank handle.
  • Leafy greens such as kale, Swiss chard, col­lard green, dan­de­lion are also the ingre­di­ents which this juicer excel in juicing;
  • Beets, car­rots, turnips, turmer­ic, gin­ger are no prob­lem fine as long as feed it slow­ly and pre-cut thick ones, the stringy gin­ger may cause some prob­lem and need pre-cut;
  • Apples, pears, and even soft­er toma­toes and cucum­ber his juicer han­dles just well;
  • Since the juicer set includes addi­tion­al attach­ment such as a homog­e­niz­ing screen it also makes nut but­ter, ice cream, baby food, able to homog­e­nize and grind fresh gar­lic, onion, gin­ger, or peppers;
  • With the noz­zle set for extrud­ing pas­ta it makes dif­fer­ent sort of pas­ta includ­ing noo­dle, spaghet­ti and makes shapes and makes rice cakes and breadsticks;

Make sure you cut the mate­ri­als into small­er length­wise pieces. If the oper­a­tion is very noisy, check out if the unit is lev­eled on a flat surface.

Summary

Over­all, the Z‑Star a bril­liant man­u­al juicer that is designed for juic­ing leafy greens and wheat­grass and the abil­i­ty to juice some amounts of fruits or veg­gies if nec­es­sary. The juicer per­forms exceed­ing­ly well on most of the ingre­di­ents includ­ing the fruits and veg­gies while it requires some mus­cle for juic­ing firm pro­duce. Since it includes a few attach­ments it also can make nut but­ter, frozen desserts, and oth­er homog­e­niz­ing tasks.

In actu­al use, the Z‑star juicer is well built and feels quite sol­id, no won­der it has all the Tribest Solostar III elec­tric sin­gle auger mas­ti­cat­ing juicer where the motor base unit is replaced by the hand-cranked base. The Z‑Star is good for those who want to juice main­ly leafy greens and wheat­grass, but at the same time would wish to dilute the taste with apple juice or vegetable.
