The Vivo Juicer might not be a make you've heard of but that's no reason not to consider their powerful juicer which is half the price of more well known brands and yet does exactly the same job. It's a good performer with good reviews so worth a closer look.

How Does it Perform?

Well, with a 990w motor behind it you would think that the fruit pulp would be absolutely bone dry by the time it's been forced through the strainer however, it was still a little wet. We're not talking sopping wet but if you wanted to get every last drop out of it, you'd be wise to put the pulp through again.

Quite disappointing really for such a powerful motor but then we've had the same issues with some of the more well known brands and the Vivo Powerful Professional is almost half the price so you'd probably feel less cheated with this one.

What About Design?

The design is something they've actually worked on with the Vivo Juicer and it shows, especially with the jug. Regular juicers will know that sometimes the juice can have a problem with froth but the way they've designed the jug, it catches the froth inside the pouring lid which also benefits from a tilting chute which traps any remaining drips and the splash shield works well. The suckers on the feet also prevent the juicer from jumping off the worktop the moment you switch it on.

Little designs like this help to prevent mess and just makes life that little bit easier.

Cleaning is pretty easy too. Everything dismantles quite easily and with a quick rinse it comes out clean. You could put the detachable parts in the dishwasher without a problem but we found that rinsing it under the hot tap was just as efficient.

They've also included a cleaning brush to reach the trickier parts.

The feeding tube diameter is 75mm which is suitable for most types of apples, beetroot, carrots, etc. You'd only need to cut the larger apples.

The size of the Vivo Powerful Professional compares well to others in the same range. It's not too large or cumbersome but equally you have to remember that this is a juicer designed for regular use, so it's not going to fit neatly away in a cupboard. Looks-wise, it's not the most attractive of juicers but it's functional so we're happy with that.

Could it be Improved?

Well as we say, the pulp isn't as dry as it could be with such a powerful motor behind it so that could certainly do with some improvement, the Vivo Juicer seems to perform better with harder fruit than soft fruit like bananas for some reason, although we did find that the pulp is great for usage as a cake filling or in pies or smoothies so nothing is wasted.

A large motor does mean that it's not as quiet as some other juicers on the market. Normally you could sacrifice some short-term noise if you knew that you would get every last drip from your fruit but in this case the noise doesn't justify the end result. All that noise and still fairly wet pulp afterwards.

Overall Result?

You get what you pay for and with the Vivo Juicer you get a good, sturdy juicer that will give you many days of juicing for much less than its more expensive counterparts. Yes it could be better but then you'd probably have to pay more and to be honest, we think it gives a good enough performance to be worth every penny.
