Great design & performance for green juice
Purchased to update a nine year old single auger horizontal model that was outdated. I was looking for: a reliable purchase, high quality materials, ease of use and clean up. I had the budget for a Greenstar but felt overwhelmed by the number of parts and cleaning. The Sana appeared a good choice, given all factors. The design is elegant and modern and the juicer feels ‘expensive.’ It is easy to use with the wider feed chute, which means less chopping time! The motor is sufficiently to ‘suck produce’ in with very little use of the tamper which adds to the ease. The yield on carrots and leafy greens is very high; wheatgrass needs to be chopped into 1-3” pieces or it wraps around the augur. Softer produce such as cucumbers are processed less efficiently, but it is possible to pass the pulp through a second time to compensate. I am able to produce 1.5L of juice during the 30 mins specified maximum run time. The finished juice benefits from a strain through a fine sieve to remove pulp before drinking. Clean up is a joy! The strainer is the only component requiring much more than a dip in soapy water and the brush supplied does a good job. I am extremely satisfied with this juicer and appreciative of the advice I received when I called Juicers to discuss my purchase.
