Jarden's Cordless Frozen Concoction Maker
The Juice & Blend produces blended drinks made with 100 percent fresh juice. Its design includes a 3-inch, extra-wide feed chute that processes whole fruits and vegetables without the need to precut them. Its motor (1,200 watts in juicer mode, 750 watts in blender mode) works at five variable speeds, and it comes with a juicing guide printed on the pulp container. The Juice & Blend features Hemisphere Blade & Bowl technology, which hugs the base of the jug to eliminate food traps. The juicing jug has a 40-ounce capacity and includes a froth separator. brevilleusa.com
Jarden Consumer Solutions
The Margaritaville-branded lineup has been a solid performer for Jarden for the past three years, and now includes the Cordless Frozen Concoction Maker. This product includes an 18-volt rechargeable battery, in place of a power cord, to produce up to 60 restaurant-quality frozen drinks on a single charge (the equivalent of 20 36-ounce pitchers, Jarden says). The product is designed for durability, incorporating an extra-wide base for stability. It also has a premium metallic finish and oversized controls with soft rubber touch points. jardencs.com
Health-conscious consumers now have a new option for extracting juice from fresh fruit and vegetables. The Waring Pro Juicerator is engineered to effortlessly extract more juice from even hard-root vegetables such as carrots and beets, with only the touch of a switch. Among its features are an 850-watt, two-speed motor; an extra-large, 3-inch feed chute; a see-through polycarbonate lid and pulp collector; and a 50-ounce juice cup. No peeling, chopping or cooking of the vegetables is required, and most of the Pro Juicerator's parts are dishwasher-safe. waringproducts.com
"Be healthy and
more energetic," says De'Longhi in its description of its Centrifugal Juice Extractor. The product is capable of producing a quart of juice in one minute, and can work with whole apples, pears and even larger fruit without the need to cut them into pieces because of the large feed tube that's part of its design. The centrifuge-juicing technology uses blades and a sieve to separate the juice from the pulp, thus speeding up the juice extraction. The built-in pulp collector uses an outer screen for those who don't like a lot of pulp in their juice drinks. delonghiusa.com
