On 28 July 2014, I purchased my first slow juicer, a Bayers Dual Stage Slow Juicer by Zenergy Marketing. It was purchased online from Groupon (www.groupon.my) for RM399. There were many options and different brands available - ranging from RM300+ to as high as RM2000. This was my first attempt to juicing, so I thought I will not spend so much money first. However, if the frequency increases and a better appliance is called for, then I shall invest again in the future.
It arrived on 4 August 2014 with Skynet (www.skynet.com.my) local carrier courier service. The package was properly packed with layers of bubble wrap.
I was rather excited hence I purchased apples, oranges and carrots to test our my new kitchen appliance.
DUAL-STAGE JUICING, Stage 1: Juice is extracted through the first crushing stage then squeezed during the second stage pressing stage; resulting in higher yields of juice and an extremely dry pulp. The secret is in the double-angled auger carefully crafted with precision engineering.

The un-boxing. Comes with an easy to follow Instruction Manual.
- Feeder Hopper
- Transparent pitchers for collecting the pulp & juice
- Cleaning brush
- Metal gauze
- Double-angled auger
Ingredients to be juiced, apples and carrots.
At the base of the juicer are suction cups which holds unto the glass table so that it does not shake or vibrates too much during the juicing process.
There is a small tray on the top of the juicer (feeder hopper) with allows you to temporary place your cut pieces before inserting them into the feeder.
Juice is separated to the circular nozzle on the left side of the juicer while the pulp are directed to the right side rectangle nozzle.
The appliance comes with two pitchers / containers for collecting the pulp and juice but I thought it would be easier for measuring the volume of juice produced with a measuring cup.
I'm looking forward to experimenting with my recipes and improving my health with delicious juices.
