High-end kitchen appliance manufacturer Dualit has added a new juice extractor to its range of stylish kitchen gadgets.
Available from May 2010, the £99.95 juicer has an extra-wide feed tube which can juice some fruits, such as apples, whole. The smart-looking juicer also has two speeds, a 1.6 litre juice jug and a 2.2 litre pulp container.
We’ve got our hands on one of the new juicers ahead of its release – Which? members can read our initial impressions of the Dualit Juice Extractor in our juicer reviews along with impartial ratings for 20 of the latest juicers, including eight Best Buy juicers.
Dualit juice extractor
Dualit’s juicer comes with a double-filter mechanism which it says produces the ‘tastiest juice possible’. It also has a froth-filter in the lid of the juice container, which is designed to separate froth from juice when it’s poured. See whether Dualit’s claims stood up when we tried out the new juice extractor in our juicer review.
Safety features include a locking arm, to keep everything in place while juicing, and an automatic power cut-out to stop the motor if it overloads or jams. Some parts are dishwasher safe and Dualit helpfully supplies a cleaning brush for the filter.
Which? juicer expert Lisa Galliers says: ‘This Dualit juicer will look great in any kitchen. It’s good to be able to juice whole fruits but some may still need a bit of preparation before juicing.
‘We like the sound of the froth-filter lid, as no one likes a glass of juice that’s half full of froth. The main problem with juicers is the number of bits to clean, so parts which are dishwasher-safe are handy, too.’
