I’ve known Oster as a reputable Blender manufacturer. I’m surprised that they did a great job in their juicing machine line up. The Oster JusSimple 2-Speed Extra-Wide Feed Chute Juice Extractor is one of those centrifugal electric juicers that can compete with Breville, minus the expensive price tag.
In comparison to Breville JE98XL, this product does exactly the same thing, plus it’s easier to clean and 10% cheaper. It can help you make fresh, healthy juices out of dense produce and citrus fruits.
Its filter basket design is unique, which raises its usability rating a notch higher. Most of the centrifugal juicers that I’ve reviewed comes with a traditional mesh design, like a common kitchen sieve. Its interlocking strands of metal is an easy place for pulp to get stuck, requiring more attention during the cleanup process.
Oster JusSimple’s Rinse n’ Ready Filter Basket removed that hassle by opting for a solid plastic strainer. It doesn’t have crevices, like a traditional one. You don’t even need to brush it after every use. All you need is a soft sponge and a quick rinse to get rid of the pulp and juice residue.
- Fast juice extraction time
- The larger chute speeds up your juicing process even more by cutting up your prep time significantly.
- Easy to clean filter basket
- Dishwasher safe parts
- BPA free components
- Large capacity pulp bin
- Comes with 32 oz juice pitcher with froth separator
- Non-drip spout with nozzle
- 24-hour juice shelf life
- Since this juice extractor only have two-speed settings, it’s only limited to juicing dense produce and citrus fruits
- Smaller feeding chute in comparison to other popular centrifugal juicers
- High-speed juicers are not efficient in extracting juice from leafy greens
- Short warranty coverage
Features & Product Details
Is it Easy to Use?
This Oster Juicer works like any other centrifugal juice extractor. It’s quite easy to assemble, operate, and this particular model is surprisingly easier to clean. It will just take 7 steps for you to get started juicing. Once all the parts are locked in place you are good to go.
Is it Easy to Clean?
Yes, it is. Apart from being dishwasher safe, its blade-filter assembly was designed for easy maintenance. Instead of being fully stainless steel, its filter component is made of BPA free plastic. They named it Rinse n’ Ready Filter Basket.
What makes it easier to clean is it’s not made of interlocking strands of steel, where fibers are usually stuck. You won’t even need a cleaning brush to clean this part. You just need a soft sponge and a quick rinse to get rid of the pulp and residue.
To make your cleaning routine even more straightforward, wash your juicer right away after you’re done juicing. It’s also advisable to place a biodegradable bag on your pulp bin.
Juice extracted by high-speed juicing machines (like the Oster JusSimple 2-Speed Juice Extractor) retains its nutrient content for a shorter duration, all because of oxidation. The rapid spinning motion happening inside the juicing chamber incorporates a significant amount of oxygen into the juice. Thus, speeding up the oxidation process, or simply spoiling the juice faster.
If you want to take advantage of a juice’s maximum nutritional value from this type of juicing machine, drink it right away or at least within a 5-minute window. After 24 hours, it will lose all its nutrient content.
What Kinds of Produce Can it Juice?
The Oster JusSimple 2-Speed Juice Extractor will work best on dense produces and citrus fruits.
Fruits and vegetables such as fennel, watermelon, cauliflower, pepper, bitter gourd, cilantro, pear, carrots, ginger, pineapple, asparagus, pumpkin, sweet potato, turmeric, cucumber, yakon, celery, garlic, apple, beets, and broccoli can go well with this machine.
It can also take on your favorite citruses such as lime, lemons, oranges, mandarin, grapefruit, and tangerine.
Dual-speed centrifugal juicers are not ideal for juicing soft fruits and leafy greens. It won’t yield as much as slow juicers.
However, if you really want to make green juices with the Oster JusSimple, you can put the leafy greens in between fruits and vegetables with high water content such as apples, cucumber, carrots, etc.
