All about Juicing

I get a ton of questions about juicing.. down to which one i use/ why and what to put in it without it tasting rancid!

Ive been using the Cookworks KP60PD for the last 3 years.

I brought it from Argos for around £30- £40 which is  a bargain price for a juicer!
I was just starting out on juicing so didn't want to spend a small fortune for it to be put in the back of the cupboard!

After using it for the last 3 years on and off, and as of latterly I've been using it daily, i haven't had a single problem with it!

It takes whole fruit which mean you can core an apple then add it straight through the juicer without chopping which makes it a bit quicker.

The only thing i would say that I'm not overly sure about is how efficient it is at extracting all the the juice from your produce, it does the job but you never truly know how much your getting out from each piece of fruit/ veg.

Heres more about the juicer:


  • 600 watts.
  • 2 variable speed settings for soft and hard fruits.
  • Takes whole or large pieces of fruit - no pre-cutting needed.
  • 0.8 litre juice capacity.
  • Removable 2 litre pulp container.
  • Removable stainless steel filter.
  • Removable stainless steel blades.
  • Safety locking handle and safety switch.
  • Easy to clean with dishwasher safe parts.
  • Manufacturer's 2 year guarantee.
I would recommend it for someone starting out with juicing it definitely worth the money.





So onto basic juicing recipes!

When it comes to juicing you can pretty much throw in what you have sat in your fruit bowl/ fridge!
 I love the combination of Apples, carrots , spinach, celery , kale and a slice of lemon & ginger just gives it the kick it needs especially in the morning!

Green Juice recipe:
cucumber
kale
spinach
green apple
lemon/ ginger

Sweet juice recipe:
apple
pear
carrot
spinach
orange
lemon/giner

Earthy juice recipe:
Beet root
celery
carrot
cucumber
apple
kale
spinach
lemon/ginger

I dont necessarily go by a specific amount of each fruit/ veg just because it usually depends what i have in and how much i need to fill up my average glass!

Don't forget when using anything with a peel i.e. oranges to peel them before hand!
Apples/ pears etc can go in whole.
