Still a good investment
My machine has been working juicing 2 ltr mostly vegetable with some fruit thrown in every third day for 9 months Great juice and by product is great for fritters with caned fish or mixing in stir fry .
1 little break down with plastic drive gear which was sent in very quick time from Byron Bay.
Then I had a motor failure so a call to Byron Bay and advised to post return . Received back in 10 working days under warranty .
Service is 5 star staff very helpfull
Quick juicing,good quality juice ,(cold pressed) less noise then a high speed machine reasonably easy cleaning. 4 star my tick
Very Unhappy BioChef Atlas Slow Juicer customer!
I bought my BioChef Atlas Slow Juicer just a few weeks ago and I am totally unsatisfied about my purchase! I usually juice pineapple, cucumber, apples, spinach, celery, ginger and it continually blocks up and it does not get through the auger successfully - there are big pieces not getting crushed and just sitting. I am very unhappy and dissatisfied with this machine. I decided to buy this machine off Amazon from Vitality4Life. I think after spending £200-00 I should be getting a decent machine and not having a problem every time I juice. I bou...ght this for health reasons and I am losing interest in juicing which is sadly due to the quality of this product! I am a VERY unhappy customer!! I have tried all the tips in your booklet and nothing seems to work!
Very unhappy with my purchase - Should say "unsuitable for leafy green veges"
I am very disappointed in this Juicer which my mum and I went halves in for me for Christmas. I have used the juicer three times and each time, regardless of what I do, the pulp shoot gets completely blocked. I bought a juicer because my naturopath advocates juicing, particularly leafy green vegetables as a great way to get a shot of nutrients first thing in the morning. My ideal juice has kale, spinach, celery, cucumber, carrot, apple and ginger. I have read the "handy hints section" and done everything including;
- feeding the juicer painfu...
Find out how BioChef Atlas Slow compares to other Juicers
Know better, choose better.
I already have centrifugal juicer and 2 days ago I bought Biochef Atlas slow juicer from David Jones just because I read it produces better quality juice and some reviews said that it even produces more juice than centrifugal ones - what a lie! I tested both juicers with same amount (1,5kg) of apples, mandarines and beetroots (each same amount as well) and I got 100ml more of pure juice from centrifugal one with same amount of pulp, only there were also debris of fruits in juice from Atlas juicer which should not be in juice (only pulp like it ...was advertised) and yes, I did cut all fruits on small pieces and fed them through juicer slowly and bottom yellow plug closed. So centrifugal juicer is faster, gets you more juice and it is debris free. Cleaning takes pretty much same amount of time. Other thing I've noticed about this juicer is that bellow small white plastic gear wheel juice stays trapped in the little hole where little screw is and only way to clean this is to unscrew little screw with screwdriver and than wash it out, so it does actually have more parts that can get damaged during time comparing it to other centrifugal juicer. I will be returning it or maybe replacing it for Oscar Neo.
Produces awesome juice, keeping it cold and enzymes preserved!
So Disappointed With The Biochef Atlas Juicer
I was so looking forward to the juicing experience so went for a more expensive model. Followed the book recepes and cut everything up small, made sure the little yellow stopper was firmly in place and all was put together properly. after the 5th go at juicing I have given up. All we get is a glass full of bits. I don't want a meal every time I want a glass of juice. Also there should be a lid designed to scoop the froth off the top when pouring the juice out. And I am so sorry to say it's a nightmare to clean out the bottom chamber, I don't th...ink this can be done in 1 minute, took me 15 mins and there is still bits stuck in it. Also the only way to hook out the stuck bits in the juice flute was to poke something up there and pull it out. This juicer is going back to the shop....
Questions & Answers
Hi l have the Atlas model the other day l was putting cabbage through the machine and the juicer stopped is there an overload in the motor from burning out and why is it doing that l cut it up into pieces.
Good Morning Romeo, sometimes it will stop when there is too much produce jamming up in the drum? Are you able to put it in reverse? This normally works combined with unblocking and emptying the drum, then you can normally proceed as normal. If you are still having issues please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org and someone can call you to go through some trouble shooting tips. Warmest Regards Bec Vitality4life
Which one is recommended between atlas & synergy? in terms of juice yield, are both the same?
Are the removable parts of the machine dish-washer-safe?
Hi captainKebab, Thank you for your question. The parts of this juicer are not dishwasher safe due to some parts having seals on them.
