The only Two-Part Juicer
The Norwalk Juicer is actually a combination of two machines sharing the same body and powered by the same motor. A Vortex Cutter for complete cutting and grinding and a Hydraulic Press which extracts the nutrients from the pulp provided by the Cutter.
The Norwalk Juicer utilizes the Vortex Cutter, a helical cutter-grinder mechanism (the triturator) which greatly improves the ability to cut the fibers of raw foods down to the cellular level. This enables the maximum extraction of nutrients.
The Hydraulic Press extracts the nutrients from the pulp provided by the Vortex Cutter. The tremendous pressure exerted by the Norwalk Hydraulic Press gently and completely extracts the natural fruit sugars, vitamins, trace minerals, enzymes, and other vital elements. This imparts to the juice an extremely fine quality and flavor to the juice which is unequaled by any other method of juice extraction.
Stainless Steel Parts
Solid metal construction. Five of the seven removable parts are stainless steel, and with the exception of the press plate, all removable parts are dishwasher safe.
