Review Hamilton Beach 67601A Big Mouth Juice Extractor


 

Centrifugal juicers are popular as they are fast and powerful and the Hamilton Beach 67601A Big Mouth Juice Extractor is no exception.  Read our review and see if this model is the best centrifugal juicer to buy for you and your families juicing needs.


Equipped with a powerful 800-watt motor this juicer is a powerhouse, ripping through fruit an vegetables easily, minimising your juicing time.  As the name suggests it has a large mouth or feed chute and can take some whole fruit such as apples, which means less preparation time for you.

√ TIP – When using this machine or any other juicer we recommend using as little pressure as possible when using the pusher. This allows the machine to operate efficiently and avoids clogging and wasting time – just relax and enjoy your juicing!

Like other centrifugal juicers the Hamilton Beach 67601A it operates at high speed and does produce some foam and oxidation of the juice, but for an inexpensive juicer the performance in this respect is really not too bad.  Build quality is good but not in the same league as the more expensive centrifugal models like the Breville Juice Fountain Plus, however that is reflected in the price difference.

Extra-wide 3” feed chute fits whole fruits & vegetables, reducing prep time.

As well as the generous 3″ feed chute the machine also has a huge pulp container which means that you don’t have to stop often too often to empty the pulp out.  This helps to cut down the juicing time which is an important factor if you are a leading a hectic lifestyle.

On the downside the juice container capacity is only 20 oz, so you may need to stop and decant into another jar if doing a long juicing run.  Best results with this machine and other centrifugal juicers are obtained by alternating the produce.  Juicing a carrot then an orange and another hard ingredient followed by a softer fruit helps to minimise build up in the mesh screen.  Finishing off with a hard vegetable also helps clear the mesh of pulp from softer produce and makes cleaning easier.  Centrifugal machines are not the best choice if you wish to juice leafy greens but rolling leaves into a compact bunch helps to get the best out of the extraction process.  In addition to its speed and durability, the Big Mouth Juice Extractor comes with healthy recipes and suggestions.

Hard core juicing fanatics who want the best out of their juicing will prefer a masticating juicer.

Juice Quality and Yield

The juice quality from theHamilton Beach 67601A is good but not exceptional.  As with other centrifugal juicer types there is a fair amount of foaming and some pulp remains in the juice, however it is minimal.  There will be little degradation of the juice if you drink it soon after juicing.  It handles hard fruits and vegetables well and can j uice leafy greens, however it is not the best machine for that purpose and can produce more waste than a masticating type juicer.   Hamilton Beach recommended that oranges, pineapples, melons and mangoes be peeled before placing in the unit to minimize impact on juice flavor.  Also, all fruits with pits and large seeds, such as nectarines, peaches, apricots, plums and cherries need to b pitted before juicing.

The pulp that is ejected from the juicer is not as dry as a masticating juicer but for the price we feel it performs well.  This is in keeping with other centrifugal machines as they operate a very high speed,  much faster then masticating machines that remove more juice giving a higher yield.

Noise

This is a loud machine, about the same noise level as a blender.  Not the machine to buy if the rest of the family like to sleep longer than you!

Cleaning

The machine is easy to disassemble and assemble.  The blades and mesh are easily cleaned under warm water using the supplied brush.  The manufacturer advises that the removable plastic parts are dishwasher safe, but our recommendation is to clean immediately by hand after juicing as any fine particles then have no time to adhere to the mesh.

√ TIP -To minimise cleaning time, line the pulp container with a produce bag to collect the pulp. Pulp can then be used for other dishes, or as compost for gardens or discard in your normal waste or bio waste bin.

Our Verdict


The Hamilton Beach 67601A is an inexpensive centrifugal model that is very popular.   As noted in our review it handles most fruit and vegetables well, however if you are intending to mainly produce juice from leafy greens then it is not the best choice and a masticating juicers would be a better choice.

    I love this machine! Being so cheap I thought it would not be the best performance wise, but it’s great, and the juice is delicious 🙂
