You’re reading about what has to be acknowledged as our best value horizontal single auger juicer. Although it’s not the cheapest, this mid-priced model is on a par for performance with the more expensive models, because it uses exactly the same juicing parts and originates from the same Korean factory as those high end versions. It’s actually from the Hurom factory and this juicer is also seen branded as the more expensive Oscar Neo DA 1200.
The outer design may be slightly less ‘premium’ looking with the Vidia SJ-002 Slow Juicer compared to others in or range, and the guarantee period may not be as long but this can be a bit of a red herring because these low speed induction motor juicers are extremely reliable and warranties don’t cover for long term ‘wear and tear’ in any case. All in all it’s a very attractive package for anyone who wants to priorities juicing of vegetables, leafy greens & wheatgrass.
As well as being a great value masticating juicer for all ingredients, The Vidia SJ-002 comes with the usual array of multifunction parts allowing you to swap out the juicing screen for a blank homogenising screen that lets you make purees, sorbets, nut butters and noodles from your favourite pasta dough. If you have time and you’re in any doubt that you are looking at a premium model at a less than premium price point, check out the long video above which gives a really comprehensive look at this superb slow juicer.
