I like the
Green Star juicer family. I rank them the highest in nutrition,
method of extraction, quality of manufacture, and customer service. You can pay more, but you won't find
a better juicer.

Juice Extractors and Food Processors are award-winning
machines of unsurpassed quality. They use an Exclusive Heavy
Duty Twin Gear technology and a low 110 rpm. If you want the
best, the Green Star is a notch above the competition. There
is no need to look elsewhere. The Green Star GS-1000
is a high-end juicer. It also performs some food processing
tasks. It can process almonds and dates into pie crusts,
make pates from nuts and vegetables, sauces, baby foods,
frozen fruit desserts and more.

Star Juice Extractors have special pocket recesses
to aid in processing hard vegetables like carrots by
creating a sharper edge at the initial grinding phase of the
juicing process, thereby reducing the strain exerted by the
motor when processing harder produce. In addition, Green Star's Twin Gears have cutting points allowing it
to handle a wider variety of produce without jamming or
clogging. Without these cutting points, as is the case with
most other juicers, the gears would become tangled or
clogged when processing certain types of vegetables.
different types of produce require different amounts of
pressure within the juicing chamber to be efficiently
processed, Green Star's special pressure
adjustment mechanism, lets you adjust the amount of
pressure without having to stop juicing, allowing use of a
wide variety of produce in one session for maximum
convenience. Other dual-gear juicers do not have this
pressure adjustment feature and tend to back-up or clog when
juicing certain varieties of produce.
BioCeramic Technology Means Longer Lasting Juice
Green Star's magnetic and bioceramic technology presents yet another distinctive advantage over other dual-gear juicing systems, enabling users to extract juice of higher nutritional content. Magnets create a focused magnetic field, rearranging water clusters and latching on to more valuable vitamins, minerals and other nutrients during the juice extracting process. Bioceramic materials inside the Twin Gears utilize kinetic energy of the turning gears to emit far-infrared - the wavelength at which water and all organic material naturally oscillates. This stabilizes the juice by delaying oxidation, keeping the extracted juice fresher longer. Independent lab tests on the juice yield from the Green Star have concluded that the juice coming from the Green Star's Twin Gear juicing system was of superior nutritional content and had important characteristics lengthening the stability of the juice and its enzyme activity. Other dual-gear juice extractors do not have this technology, and in some cases, even heat the juice, increasing oxidation and diminishing enzyme activity.
Reasons Why Green Star Juicers Are the Best
The Green Star is the original twin gear juicing machine and although its popularity has bred some imitations, the original is still the best. Here's why.
1. Plastic Safety Buffer
The Green Star's Twin Gears
are made mostly of stainless steel and have plastic elements
that play a very important safety role. The plastic serves
as a crucial element of the high-quality design of the Green
Star by creating a buffer between the gears to ensure that
the two metal gears do not come in contact with each other.
When the HD Twin Gears rotate against each other, the
stainless steel portions are separated by 4/1000 of an inch
apart at all times due to the plastic safety buffer, which
is slightly larger in diameter than the rest of the Twin
Gears. Green Star was developed with this feature in order
to prevent any stainless-steel shavings from inadvertently
entering into the juice or the pulp.
The plastic portions of the Twin Gears were also designed to protect the motor. During the juicing process, a great deal of pressure is created inside the juicing chamber. This pressure is released as pulp is ejected from the unit. If the gears were made entirely of stainless steel, excess strain could be placed on the motor during the juicing process. Although the HD Twin Gears were designed to be extremely durable, the plastic may sometimes crack as a protective measure in situations in which an extreme amount of pressure is created during the juicing process. Although this results in gears that need to be replaced, the cracking relieves the pressure that would have otherwise been exerted on the turning motor. As a result, gears made entirely of stainless steel would not allow this emergency pressure release to occur, diminishing the usable lifespan of the motor, or even possibly causing it to burn out leading to even costlier repairs and diminished performance.
Our commitment to safety and
quality has led us to continue with the original design of
the HD Twin Gears. The plastic portion not only prevents
any stainless steel from being introduced into your juice or
pulp, but also ensures that your Green Star Juice Extractor
will operate for many years.
2. Pocket Recesses
The teeth of the Twin Gears
featured in the Green Star Juice Extractor were designed
with special pocket recesses to aid in processing hard
vegetables like carrots. The pocket recesses create a
sharper edge at the initial grinding phase of the juicing
process and reduces the amount of strain exerted by the
Green Star's motor when processing harder produce.
Imitation juicers have dual
gears with flat teeth. As a result, they are less efficient
at handling harder vegetables and require you to use more
effort to push the vegetables through the juicer. This
excess strain may also be transferred to the motor, possibly
diminishing its useful life.
In contrast, the specially
designed pocket recesses on each tooth of the Twin Gears
featured in the Green Star Juice Extractor simplifies the
juicing process and ensures that the Green Star will last
for many years.
3. Cutting Points
The Green Star's Twin Gears have special cutting points on each of the gears that allow it to handle a wider variety of produce without jamming or clogging. Imitation juicers do not have these special cutting points on their dual gears, and may become tangled or clogged when processing certain types of vegetables. In fact, these problems have prompted some imitating brands to create an auto-reverse function to interrupt the juicing process if tangling should occur. However, don't be fooled into thinking that this feature is an improvement over the Green Star. The cutting points and pocket recesses of the Twin Gears ensure that the Green Star will not become tangled or jammed while juicing making an auto-reverse function unnecessary, and undesirable. In fact, the auto-reverse function of imitation dual-gear juicers may inconveniently interrupt the juicing process when processing harder or stringy vegetables even when it is unnecessary.
4. Pressure Adjustment
The Green Star allows you to easily adjust the amount of pressure that is required for pulp ejection in order to effectively handle a wider variety of produce without jamming or clogging. Different types of produce require a different amount of pressure within the juicing chamber in order to most be most efficiently processed. For example, harder vegetables like carrots require more pressure in order to squeeze the most amount of juice from the pulp, whereas wheatgrass and other leafy greens require that less pressure be exerted in the juicing process. The Green Star allows you to adjust the amount of pressure without having to stop juicing allowing you to use a wide variety of produce in one session for your maximum convenience. Other imitation dual-gear juicers do not have a pressure adjustment mechanism and are not as versatile as the Green Star. As a result, you may find that these imitation dual-gear juicers will often back up or clog when juicing certain varieties of produce.
5. Exclusive Magnetic &
The Green Star exclusively features magnetic and bioceramic technology in its Twin Gear juicing system that allows it to extract juice of higher nutritional content. The magnets create a focused magnetic field that rearranges clusters of water so that it can latch on to more the valuable vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients and extract it into your juice. The bioceramic material inside the Twin Gears utilize the kinetic energy of the turning gears to emit far-infrared the wavelength at which water and all organic material naturally oscillates. This has a stabilizing effect on your juice by delaying oxidation and allows your extracted juice to remain fresher longer. Independent laboratories have done extensive testing on the juice yielded from the Green Star and compared it with other leading juicing technologies and have found that the juice coming from the Green Star's Twin Gear juicing system was of superior nutritional content and had important characteristics lengthening the stability of the juice and its enzyme activity. Other dual-gear juice extractors do not have this technology, and may even heat your juice, leading to increased oxidation and diminished enzyme activity.
The technology of the
original Twin Gear juicing system featured exclusively in
Green Star machines are often imitated because of its
reputation of yielding juice of unsurpassed nutritional
quality and its ease of use. However, these imitations have
always fallen short of the exceptionally high standards set
by the Green Star. Nothing beats the original.
