Champion G5-PG-710 Commercial Juicer
This commercial juicer is a veteran to the juicing market and it has been around for over 20 years. It has customers with older units that still rave about their juicer. It features a powerful, heavy-duty 1/3 horsepower GE motor and a large 1.75” diameter feeding tube that allows large vegetables without cutting them.
The floating cutter on this Champion commercial juicer is designed to separate the juice from the pulp in one continuous operation that requires very little cleaning. The blades are cast into the cutter for superior strength, they are made of tempered stainless-steel and they never rust.
The Champion commercial juicer G5-PG-710 is a very versatile juicing machine that can juice perfectly all kinds of fruits and vegetables. It can make nut butters, frozen fruit sorbets, ice creams, sherbets, purees, muesli, salsa and many more. It is great for those that juice once or a few times a day.
The plastic parts on this Champion commercial juicer are nylon rather than just molded plastic which means they are much more flexible and shatter-proof. The cutting cone is just a durable piece of nylon on a large metal cutting shaft and the blades are not sharp like the ones on a centrifugal juicer.
On this great juicer the purpose of the “blades” is not just to cut, but they also force the food items around the cone in the outside housing and then over a curved screen at the bottom of the unit where the pressure and the brushing motion efficiently squeeze the juice out.
The cone on this excellent commercial juicer has an indentation that spits the pulp out the front. It is not the same as a single-auger juicer where the auger forces the food items against a screen at the front. I can’t say which one is better, or if one is better than the other, they are just different and excellent juicers.
This unit is not self-feeding, like the Omega VRT350, it actually comes with a pusher. You do not have to push hard to get it to feed as the cone turn while you apply pressure on the food, it grinds off bits of the food and sends them over to the juicing screen.
The Champion was built with quality and durability in mind and it is not just a bunch of plastic parts you have to be careful with. As most of them are nylon, they will not break if you drop them, they do not crack or deform, they just work. This is a high quality heavy-duty juicer for fruits and vegetables.
