The juice is loose

Hurom Slow Juicer

A juicer may not be on your list of must-have kitchen gadgets, but that just means you’ve never had a gimlet made with freshly squeezed lime juice. Knighted by none other than Bon Appétit as this year’s Best New Kitchen Appliance, the Hurom Slow Juicer ($360) does far more than make mixers for your old-school cocktails, though. With an extraction-based design, the Slow Juicer first crushes your fruit du jour and then presses it. This produces less air and more juice — 35% more to be exact, and up to 60% more vitamins than if you were to use an inferior, grind-based juicer. Because of this, Hurom claims you can extract non-fruit items like wheatgrass, nuts and soybeans to create morning shakes, soups and even tofu. Kudos to you if you were in the maybe-I-should-get-a-juicer-to-make-tofu-at-home demographic; we’ll stick to our gimlets.
