Twin gear juicers, like the Tribest GreenStar GP-E1503 Green Power Gold, are excellent at extracting large volumes of juice without damaging pertinent nutrients, enzymes, and vitamins. Utilizing heavy-duty twin-rotating gears at 110 RPM, this heavy duty triturating juicer extracts juice using a revolutionary magnet and bio-ceramic innovation. This ensures a greater concentration of vitamins and anti-oxidants flows into your juice. The slow speeds significantly reduce heat friction and oxidation. The adjustable end cap allows you to control the total pressure placed on the pulp. Thus, maximizing the amount of extracted juice.
Not only does the Tribest GreenStar Gold come with fine and coarse mesh juicing screens, but it also includes a blank homogenizing screen, a mochi/breadstick piece, and pasta maker attachments. These attachments make this electric juicer an efficient food processor capable of creating Japanese rice cakes, breadsticks, baby food, pasta, and nut butter. The possibilities are practically endless. You also have the option of purchasing the soft fruit adjustment knob, which provides for effective juicing of softer fruits. At 26 pounds, it weighs more than the other Green Star models. Although it comes with a handle, you might want to place it in a permanent spot because of its heavy weight.

Tribest GreenStar Gold Features & Product Details
Is it Easy to Use?
It requires a short learning curve to get used to it, but it is simple to assemble. Be certain to line up the twin gears by placing the one dot between the two dots forming a triangle. If you place them into the machine improperly and try to operate the juice maker you run the chance of ruining the gears. As with other slow juicers, the best way to optimize the juicing process is by prepping your produce before you begin.
Wide items, such as apples, need to be sliced into smaller chunks in order to fit down the feed chute, which is only 1.5 inches by 1.5 inches. Cutting up celery is not necessary because the twin gears cut up the celery with extreme ease. It also easily juices wheatgrass and leafy greens. Other dense items need to be pushed down into the rotating gears with force. It is best to use the wooden plunger over the plastic plunger. This way, you do not need to worry if the wood chips off into the feed chute. It will pass harmlessly through the machine, and out the pulp ejector spout.
Is it Easy to Clean?
Tribest Green Power Gold has more components, but cleaning it is really easy. It will only take a few minutes. You cannot put these parts into the dishwasher at all. To prevent mineral build-up, clean everything as soon as you finish juicing. Disassemble the machine and put everything into warm, soapy water. Wash the parts, rinse, and allow everything to dry before you put it back together. The drip tray prevents juice from splashing onto the counter. This makes cleanup even simpler since you can rinse the tray off in a couple of seconds. Place the cord back in the storage compartment. Make sure to use the stiff brush to scrub the particles and pulp off of the mesh screen. Wipe the base clean.
Triturating juicers are notorious for producing the best tasting juice that is also rich in flavor. This juicing machine is capable of extracting high levels of minerals and vitamins without compromising on nutrients. As a result of the slowly rotating gears, the nutrients are not damaged through the extraction process. Because of this, the juice can be produced in large quantities and stored in the refrigerator. Fill the container all the way to the brim. Make sure to use a tight lid to seal in the nutrients and flavor. You can most likely store it for up to 72 hours without experiencing any degradation in the juice. Use the sieve to easily separate excess pulp or foam from the juice.
This juicer is also homogenizer and pasta maker, the good news is this model comes equipped with pasta making attachments. No need to purchase additional accessories. The complimentary homogenizing blank transforms your Green Star juicer into a basic food processor for making sauces, nut butter, baby food, and frozen fruit desserts. You can make soy and almond milk using the same blank screen as well. With the pasta attachments, you can either make a flat or a round noodle with it but you’ll have to make the dough first. It also includes a breadstick making attachments if you feel like snacking on high carb bread sticks but don’t do that if you’re on a diet.

It is no secret that the Tribest Green Star Gold, GP-E1503 Twin Gear Juicer is among the best triturating machines on the market. As the name suggests, it was created to effectively extract high levels of juice from dark leafy greens without clogging or struggling. Not only does it juice produce effortlessly, but the enzymes and vitamins left in the juice are 50 to 200 percent higher than other juicers. One negative thing about this juicer is that it takes some upper body strength to force the produce into the rotating gears. If this seems like it would pose any issue or if you have arthritis, then it might be best to look for a vertical masticating juicer because they are self-feeding.
While the warranty is only five years, it comes from a reputable company that has been the received many awards for their juicers throughout the years. Additionally, Tribest Corporation has been operating in the industry for more than 20 years now. If you are in the market for a multifunctional world-renowned juicer that can handle every day juicing, then this juice extractor is definitely worth checking out.
