Philips HR1871 Review

Hi guys!

I got a new juicer (Philips HR1871) for my birthday in September and I’m so happy with it! I’ve been wanting one for ages.

The pros:

  • Looks good and is quite compact.
  • All parts are dishwasher safe, making it very quick in the morning before work.
  • Comes with a little “book” of recipes!
  • Comes with a jug and two spouts (one spout for the jug shown in the photo above, the other pointing downwards if you want to press your juice directly into a glass).
  • Has two levels, one for harder fruits and veggies and the other for oranges etc
  • You can put the entire fruit in with the pips such as apples and pears (note anything with a “stone” in you have to take out first)
  • It works!

The cons:

  • You can’t juice soft fruits and vegs like avocado, banana, papaya etc as it blocks the sieve – however as I have a hand blender I don’t find this so bad as you can blend it in your juice afterwards.
  • It’s quite pricey at around 160 euros, and there is actually a model that’s basically the same with a tiny bit less power which is a bit cheaper (HR1869).

As you can see the pros outweigh the cons in my opinion, and I would totally recommend buying one 🙂

Here are also a few tips:

  • If you don’t like that particular fruit/veg in a solid form… then you won’t like it as a liquid either! (I almost threw up drinking a celery juice as I absolutely hate celery haha)
  • If you’re not drinking it straight away, add a lemon to it so it keeps it’s colour! Otherwise it will go brown.
  • If you keep your juice in the fridge for more than a day or two it loses it’s vitamins.

Thanks for reading!

What to Expect

Helloooo,

As you can see I’ve added a new category to my blog!

The reviews part of my blog is going to literally be a review about anything: whether it’s a food product, a clothinIMG_20150906_204509g brand, a game (yes I’m also a nerd and love games!) or anything else that inspires me. None of my reviews are sponsored, they are literally just my opinion, if that ever changes (for example if a product I love wants to sponsor me) then I will note it in that post. I’m looking forward to expressing my opinion about products to you guys!

That’s all for now 🙂

Enjoy,
