Featuring the new auger for lower speeds and better efficiency, the HQ features all the most important innovations.
All New Auger Design and Drum Assembly | Lower RPM
The Hurom HQ is a 2015 release and hybrid of the Elite Series. It includes most of the features of the second generation Elite Series, including the new Ultem Auger, new Ultem Strainer and new Single Gear and Motor Technology, however the HQ does not include the Pulp Lever or Wiper Blades. Its performance remains on par with its big brothers and you will be amazed at the results.
Hurom have a bewildering array of model numbers to choose from and the differences between them don’t consistently indicate major product improvements. Sometimes a different model number indicates nothing more than a different shape or colour, while all other features might be identical and interchangeable. From the original design to the newest, we have seen subtle improvements in functionality, performance and strength of parts.
The HQ incorporates the new second generation auger and drum assembly.
The second generation slow juice (SST™) Slow Squeezing Technology preserves even more of the natural fresh taste and rich nutrition, achieved by using a new auger design and a new motor that rotates at 50% the speed of the original motor system.
The entire drum assembly has been redesigned and thanks to a newly designed Ultem auger, Ultem strainer and new single gear and motor technology, the HQ produces more juice on a budget. All juicing parts are BPA free.
The new drum design makes it easier to clean and less residue will stay behind after juicing.
In addition, rather than operating at the traditional slow juicer speed of 80RPM, the HQ rotates at just 45RPM, ensuring an even gentler process of squeezing the juice from your fruit and vegetables. What results is the purest of juices that preserves even more nutrients, vitamins, antioxidants and enzymes, and the best possible taste.
Hurom’s second generation models have been completely overhauled and see several improvements over previous versions. A completely new AC induction motor unique to these models operates at 43 RPM to reduce oxidation and when it comes to actual juicing, this is where we see the majority of modifications.
Squeezing Screw (Auger): A complete redesign of the worm-screw that crushes the produce has taken place. The new design reduces the amount of produce that gets trapped inside the auger, ensuring maximum produce is pushed through the strainer, which in turn reduces build-up inside the juicer. The wing-tips added on top of the auger are what now drive the wiper blade system, eliminating the need for the ratchet system that was underneath the auger to power the blades on previous models. This in turn adds more strength to the GE Ultem auger.
Juicing Strainer: The fine juicing strainer is made of BPA free GE Ultem material. All older models used the same strainer, and at the bottom of this strainer is an exit hole where the pulp escapes. This has now been removed, as the pulp is ejected directly through the juice bowl.
Juice Bowl: Now has a much larger pulp ejection chute.
Squeezed instead of ground to preserve natural flavour and nutrition
Hurom’s innovative technology is the result of over 40 years of research into juicing. Traditional juicers use sharp blades rotating at high-speed to grind the fruit and vegetables. This heats up the food, causing oxidation and destroying the very nutrients and enzymes people are hoping to extract.
The Hurom Slow Juicer uses patented world-first technology (SST™) that slowly squeezes fruit maintaining a low temperature and helping preserve the natural taste and nutrition.
For a healthy lifestyle
In the modern world, so much of the food we eat is heavily processed, destroying the nutrients we need and the flavour we enjoy.
The Hurom Slow Juicer helps people get back to a healthier, more natural way of accessing vital nutrients and enjoying the rich natural flavour of fruit and vegetables.
Juice squeezed from a Hurom Slow Juicer is richer in natural vitamins, minerals, and enzymes than the output from regular juicers. These nutrients play a vital role in sustaining our bodies, helping us feel better and look healthier. There’s no mistaking the radiant shine of someone who gains all their nutrients from fresh natural foods.
Restoring balance to diets
It’s hard for most people to totally avoid harmful foods. The Hurom Slow juicer helps right the wrongs of everyday living with delicious nutrient rich juice.

Renowned for their ease of use, speed of juicing and quality build, the Hurom is ideal for those looking for a time saving, easy to use masticating juicer.
Slow Squeezing Technology (SST)
Traditional slow speed horizontal masticating juicers have a much smaller surface area on the juicing strainer, which somewhat restricts the juice extraction process. Hurom changed that by inventing the vertical juicer and moving the juicing mechanism to the top of the juice extractor and using a strainer with a larger surface area, which results in the juice passing through much quicker after it has been juiced. While still operating at 40-80 RPM like traditional horizontal units, Hurom juicers can produce a litre of juice in about half the time it takes in traditional horizontal machines.
In the past customers who have been frustrated by the slow speed of horizontal masticating juicers have opted for centrifugal juicers, however high speed juicers oxidise the juice quickly, resulting in poorer nutritional value, very little enzymes and no storage value, however with the Hurom, you get the benefit of much faster processing times with juice that can be stored for 48 hours with minimal loss of nutrients.
Another benefit to having the juicing mechanism at the top of the juicer means the produce you feed in pretty much self-feeds as the squeezing screw draws the produce in, eliminating the need to use the food pusher with anything but leafy greens.
The unique silicone wiper-blade system rotates in between the juice bowl and juicing strainer, effectively cleaning the inside of excess pulp to prevent the juicer from blocking up during use.
The addition of a silicone non-drip juice valve and cap on the juice outlet offers several advantages over previous models without this feature. As well as eliminating drips onto the work surface, this allows the juice bowl to be filled with water at the end of a juicing session so that the silicone wiper blades can do more of the cleaning and you less! The new larger 500ml juice bowl also has a measurement scale that allows juice to be accurately gauged and then you simply open the valve to dispense the juice.
Scientific Support for Hurom Technology
There are claims being made that with the addition of the juice cap on the new Hurom models, when fixed in the closed position, allows the juice to be combined together before being released. It is being likened to the theory long proclaimed by Max Gerson that when different nutrients in juice are mixed with one another under pressure, they produce a more nutritious juice as nutrients from the pulp are passed through. As yet there is no documentary evidence to support this with this particular juice extractor.
Dr Max Gerson (of the world famous Gerson Institute) recommend that pulp and juice should be mixed before pressing, thereby effectively capturing more nutrients from the pulp. Using the new juice cap, the pulp and juice are in contact with each other for longer, allowing the juice a greater opportunity to flush ‘sticky’ nutrients from the cell membranes and fibres (pulp) of the fruit and vegetables being cold-pressed. With the new Hurom models, the juice valve means you can have up to a half litre of juice that is potentially rinsing extra nutrients from the pulp as it is being ground up by the auger, or juicing screw. This mixing feature as the wiper blades stir the juice means, with mixed ingredients, your juice cocktail is already perfectly blended when you dispense it, with less foam or froth.
Tests from the Michelson Laboratories Inc. and the Korean Food Research Institute confirm that this juicer extracts: 42.7% more Vitamin C, 60.7% more Vitamin A when compared to traditional juicers. This research was certified by the FDA and the USDA.
Simple to Clean
Simply close the juice cap and pour water through the machine whilst it is running as normal. The water will flush out most of the remaining pulp and juice, which is handy if you need to rinse it when doing different juices. A thorough clean with the included brush can then be done, removing any fibres that might be caught in the mesh.
While vertical juicers are capable of juicing fruits, soft fruits, vegetables, leafy greens and wheatgrass, we consider them to be more of an all-round juice extractor. They perform better with softer produce like berries, pineapple and oranges, which horizontal machines generally struggle with, but if you mainly want to juice wheatgrass and leafy greens then the horizontal juicers do give better results. If you are looking for a juicer to do a bit of everything very well, then you can’t go wrong with a Hurom slow juicer.
Hurom’s 2nd generation models do produce superior results over the 1st generation models and in some instances can double the amount of juice produced.
Having the ability to make your own Soy, Almond, Rice or Oat milk can help you save money and also cater to different family members’ dietary needs. Creating your own style can be done very quickly with the Hurom and this can be stored or made and used freshly each day.
