Jack Lalanne PJP Power Juicer Pro

4 / 5 stars      

The Jack Lalanne Power Juicer Pro has been a favorite for the last three years or so, but has recently been upgraded to a stainless steel model, with a few other new features. All Jack Lanlanne juicers are centrifugal juicers.

If you’ve read more than a few of my juicer reviews (or read my juicer buying guide), you know that centrifugal models are generally not considered to be the best type of juicer you can buy, but they are not without merit, and the Power Juicer Pro does have some selling points.

As stated on the home page of my juicers reviews section, centrifugal juices turn at much faster RPMs than there sister models, the masticating juicer. While this does have some impact on the quality of the juice extracted – due to the heat generated – there is the advantage of the amount of time you can save while juicing. You do get quicker results. This model moves at 3600 RPMs compared to the 80 RPMs that the Omega VRT330HD model runs at. Now that doesn’t mean it’s 45 times faster, but it does produce juice quicker.

Jack Lalanne Power Juicer Pro Pros & Cons

Pros:  Quiet — Looks Good! — Reasonable Price

Cons: There are many complaints of motor issues

 

For all that the Power Juicer Pro is fast it should sound like a jet engine, but is surprisingly quiet.

The new stainless steel model also has a stainless steel mesh filter and a new non drip spout assembly.

While there seem to be many complaints about the model, in my opinion most of them would be addressed by actually reading and following the manual. The manufacture’s website also provides answers to many perceived issues. One thing I should point out is that while the marketing material for this juicer states that all but the base is dishwasher safe, the manual clearly states that the recommended method of washing is in warm water, but that you can also use the dishwasher providing it isn’t a commercial or European model. So, I guess you use the dishwasher at your own risk!

Being that this is a centrifugal juicer, please be aware that it will not handle green leafy vegetable very well, so if that’s an issue check out the masticating juice extractors in our listing of juicer reviews.

  • Extra-Large Round Chute accommodates most fruits and vegetables
