The ever-popular OrangeX has been given a new lease of life and re-released onto the market as a result of the take-over of the brand by Focus in the US. The OrangeX is now also being marketed as the Jupiter Juicer.
If you’re looking for a manual citrus press, it’s hard to see beyond the OrangeX Jupiter; none of its competitors being sold at a similar price point can even come close to its performance. OrangeX used to use the catchphrase “Pressed juice is the best juice” and it’s hard to disagree with this! The innovative design means there’s practically no peel oil in the juice and the citrus press yields a very generous amount of juice. The renowned OrangeX lever which delivers a huge amount of power to the press couple with a solid cast iron design means that the force exerted is more than commercial juicers which come with a price tag more than double the cost.
Only the stainless steel comes into contact with the juice at any time and the platform feels extremely stable thanks to the suction feet. The pressing handle is surprisingly easy to push down when using oranges, squeezing mercilessly into the fruit. The OrangeX Jupiter is one of the very few models on the market that can process pomegranates, a fruit which helps to protect the heart and provides a high level of antioxidants.
