Pure fruit and vegetable juices are a healthy and rehydrating way of achieving the recommended five portions a day. They can also command a premium price.
Apuro's new Friul juice extractors can prepare any fruit or vegetable for juice drinks or for use in cocktails or cold soups.
Designed for continuous production, each of the two models features a circular feed chamber fitted centrally over the blade to prevent uneven pressure on the motor bearings, a cast anodised aluminium housing with a stain finish, a double shredder disc, a food pusher, and a safety closing system with integral cut-out.
The smaller 400W Iota juices rapidly at 15,000rpm and can process up to 150kg of fruit or vegetables per hour, with a typical yield of 65-75%.
The larger, but very quiet, 750W Alpha works at up to 6,000rpm with controlled acceleration and deceleration. It can handle more than 220kg per hour and produce a yield of 65-75%.
The two machines, which are both fitted with 13amp plugs, cost £1,295 and £2,095 excluding VAT and come with two-year parts and labour warranties.
