There are cheap juicers and then there are affordable ones with innovative high-end features. Joerid Juicer 2019 Upgrade certainly falls under the latter.
From the juice jug container to the compact design, and right down to the multi-setting, this juicer can be quite a steal with its low price point.
However, this model is not all bells and whistles. It is affordable indeed but is it cheaply-made?
Read the rest of this review as we expose to you what this juicer is capable of. We hope that by the end of this article, you’ll be able to easily decide if you should get this juicing machine or look for a better one.
Joerid Juicer 2019 Upgrade Centrifugal Review
Joerid Juicer 2019 Upgrade is a compact centrifugal juicer. It may have the same sleek design as other low-priced juicers like Mueller Austria 1100W, but it is noticeably smaller. If you have a small kitchen space or prefer to have a juicer that doesn’t take too much of your counter, this model is a great option.
There are 2 unique features that we especially love about this model. The adjustable spout and the juice jug container. They are so well-designed that it should have been a standard for every other centrifugal juicer out there.
If you’ve been into juicing lately, you’ll understand how annoying it could be to have froth on your juice. Oxidation is another common issue that occurs regardless of the type of juicer you have. Joerid Juicer solved this with their innovated 2019 Upgrade.
In the next sections, we will be expanding on how each of this juicer’s features can benefit you. This is certainly one of the most affordable juicing machines on the market today. While it has its own share of caveats, it still has become too popular that sometimes stocks end up being scarce.
Power & Speed
It has 2-speed settings that can help you get the most out of your ingredients. The high-setting indicated as “I” on the knob, is great for hard ingredients like pineapple, carrots, and beets. It spins the blades at approximately 13,000 RPM.
On the other hand, the low-setting indicated by “II” on the knob, is for soft fruits and veggies like oranges and leafy greens. The blades spin at a lower rate of 10,000 RPM.
Don’t expect the same level of juice yield you’d normally experience with slow juicers, especially for leafy greens. That’s because, by nature, every centrifugal juicer extract juices by spinning and cutting at high speed, and not by grinding or masticating. Unless you’re very sensitive on juice yield, this will not be an issue at all since this juicer is still able to separate the juice from the slag.
Joerid Juicer 2019 Upgrade is surprisingly more quiet than other centrifugal. As a matter of fact, a food blender usually registers at 88db while this juicer is only at 85db.
It’s still not as quiet as masticating juicers, but it’s definitely much better than other centrifugal. Just make sure not to do your juicing late at night when everyone’s asleep. On the contrary, it’s actually a welcoming sound before breakfast, knowing that it’s almost time to load up on nutrients.
This helps to cut down on prep time significantly. If you’re new to juicing, you need to be aware that this is an important part of the process. You need to get your ingredients ready and cut them into small pieces before even turning on your juicer.
Joerid Juicer 2019 Upgrade almost completely eliminates this part of the routine. The large chute size allows you to just drop most of the ingredients without even cutting them. And if your apple is too big, cutting it in half is usually enough.
The feed shaft is not too high, compared to other brands, which largely contribute to this model’s small footprint. This means you won’t be able to add ingredients stacked on top of the other. But honestly, though, a long feed shaft is not really necessary. A centrifugal juicer operates very fast that you wouldn’t have time to stack your ingredients.
Juice Jug Capacity
Here is another feature that Joerid Juicer 2019 Upgrade got it right. The juice jug has its own built-in lid that effectively holds back the foam when you pour the juice to your glass. No froth but just clean and healthy juice.
The maximum capacity of the jug is 450 ml, which can be quite small if you’re planning to create several glasses in one go. However, it should be more than enough for up 2 single servings.
The spout where you place the juice jug is also adjustable. When in the “up” position, it prevents the juice from pouring. It’s a great feature if you’re concerned about the juice oxidizing while you’re still making it. Pushing it into “down” position opens up the spout and allows the juice to flow to the jug.
Once it’s assembled, you’ll need to lift the locking bar into its full upright position to lock the juice cover. As a safety feature, this juicer will not start unless the locking mechanism is engaged.
Unless you have large ingredients to use, you wouldn’t even have to allocate time cutting them. Plug the juicer and make sure that the container is in place. Then push the spout down if you want the juice to be pouring over as soon as the juicer extracts it.
Depending on if you’re using hard or soft ingredients, you’ll need to turn the knob to a high or soft setting, respectively. Drop the fruits (or veggies) one by one and use the plunger to push them further down.
This juicer will only continuously operate for a maximum of 6 minutes. It’s another safety precaution to prevent the motor from overheating. This auto shut-off feature is great especially if you left the juicer idling for a long time.
The machine has a tendency to shake or wobble, especially with hard ingredients. This is perhaps the most obvious side effect of a juicer this cheap. Regardless, it’s still durable…..and Joerid affixed suction cups at the bottom to keep the juicer in place.
Cleaning up Joerid Juicer 2019 Upgrade is just as easy as operating it. Disassembling it usually just requires you to pull out the parts. You can clean every part with running water, except for the motor base.
We recommend cleaning the juicer immediately after every use so that it’s a lot easier to clean with just running water. You can do this while allowing your juice to steep.
It comes with a small brush that you can use to clean the stainless steel bowl with blades.
If you do the cleaning at a later time, tiny food bits will stick like glue to the parts. This will require you to soak them in hot water and do some brushing.
This juicer has a smaller footprint than those with a similar design. It’s like a compact version of the high-end Breville JE98XL. The stainless steel design will help accentuate every kitchen.
With a small chute shaft, you can store this juicer easily under a kitchen cabinet. You can easily move it around since it only weighs around 6.85 pounds.
Warranty & Customer Support
Joerid offers a free lifetime customer support but the product itself does not include any warranty upon purchase. Fortunately, purchasing a 4-year warranty only costs around 8 bucks. It’s 4 years of peace of mind at a very minimal cost.
The lifetime customer support is a big plus since as we all know, not every company offers this if you’re already beyond your warranty period. They can be contacted through email or phone which are listed on the manual provided.
Their support team responds quickly for any type of concerns regarding their juicer. You can even call them and ask for assistance on how to operate the machine efficiently.
Pros & Cons
At the time of this writing, 75% of verified buyers from Amazon gave Joerid Juicer 2019 Upgrade a perfect rating. They were especially satisfied with how easy it is to create healthy juices with this machine. Their great experience in combination with the affordable price was what usually caused them to give this model a 5-star rating.
Most buyers who gave negative reviews are unsatisfied with the juice yield, especially with leafy greens. This is something you need to be aware of if you’re planning to juice greens most of the time. Otherwise, this model is still a great choice especially for those who are juicing for the first time.
Joerid Juicer 2019 Upgrade makes it possible for first-time buyers to enter the world of juicing without investing too much money. Even if you do have the budget, some of the innovative designs that this juicer has is not something you’d find even on high-end brands. In fact, if you’re not into hardcore green juicing, you’ll love how easy it is to create your own healthy drinks in less than 10 minutes, complete with the cleanup too.
