Norwalk and PURE juicer comparison

NORWALK JUICER AND PURE JUICER COMPARISON

If you are in the market for a two-stage and cold-press juicer there are really only two options.

We get asked a lot how our PURE Juicer compares to the traditional Norwalk Juicer. While to the novice they may look the same, there are actually many significant differences between them. We like to focus on just a few key features that make a big difference. The PURE’s:

  • Cutter and offset feed tube are better – no pre-chopping required.
  • Cold press operates makes more juice at it’s higher pressure
  • Is easier to clean and wipe down and is now $500 less than the Norwalk

We guarantee you get more juicer for your buck.
You also get more juice per squeeze, your milage may vary.

Norwalk and PURE juicer comparison

While both Mercedes and Chevrolet have four tires and a steering wheel they are not the same. PURE has taken two stage juicing to an all new level. 

The most obvious difference is the PURE Juicer’s modern gorgeous design with smooth rounded edges it is. countertop eye-candy in any kitchen. Design is built in, not an afterthought, you’ll be glad you picked the pretty one.

TOP DETAIL

Symmetrical or Asymmetrical?

Norwalk Juicer

The Norwalk is asymmetrical, with a slower motor, to accommodate the motor length creating a clunky design.

A core principle of good design is “form follows function”. Good design goes beyond appearance; so the difference truly is in the details.

The Norwalk Juicer Feed has too much offset. This requires pre-chopping. Also, the feed tube transition into the cutting chamber is not a smooth transition also making it hard to feed produce. Finally, the feed tube is a massive 4lbs.

PURE Juicer

The PURE Juicer Feed has the perfect offset. No pre-chopping required. Also, the feed tube transition is smooth transition making it easy to feed produce. Finally, the feed tube is only 3lbs!

Best of all, the PURE Juicer’s patented twist and lock feed tube makes it very easy to take it apart for cleaning and it effortless clicks back together to make another juice. No wing nuts or screws – just an easy push of a button. Also no pre-chopping, just feed your produce straight into the PURE 8 tooth cutter.

Press Chamber Detail

The larger PURE press chamber with the central side post allows for easier and more comfortable access and as well as a taller a deeper press chamber to work in. there are no corner posts to block access then placing pulp packs.

It also means you can press three pulp packs instead of just two and press up to 50% more juice in one squeeze.

PURE Cutter Detail

Easy to recognize, a significant difference is that the PURE cutter comes with eight teeth instead of five to better cut your produce, especially greens. This will enhance your juicing experience by providing a smoother, and more efficient cut.

stainless steel cutters for juicer

PURE Cutters are now available in two styles:

  1. Left, #304 stainless steel straight tooth (same material as Norwalk)
  2. Right, #440C surgical grade stainless steel cutter with serrated teeth, heat treated and hardened to Rc55. Same as what is commonly used in surgeons scalpels and chefs knives. The benefit this PURE Cutter is that it rarely or never needs sharpening and if it does, send it in for free sharpening.

Juice Tray Detail

As you can see right away, there is a big difference in size. Not only is the PURE Juicer tray deeper, 7″ vs 6″, but the press chamber that the pulp packs are pressed in is 1/2″ taller as well.

Press Handle Detail

Notice how the PURE handle is built-in as part of the design, rather. than added as an afterthought?

Also notice the thickness of the base plate, the PURE is double the thickness and 8x the stiffness. The PURE Chassis is strong and does not flex.

Another example for thought-through design are the grids.

Each PURE grid is made individually (not cut from a big sheet). This process enables us to number every grid for easy identification and makes for a smooth sided shape with no sharp edges. It increases the ‘open area’ of the grid from 61% to 75% deducing clogging and allowing pulp to flow through the greg without overheating.

What this means to you is an easy to identify, user-friendly grid that requires less push force to triturate your produce.

TWO-STAGE JUICER COMPARISON

 

Gerson Therapy

GERSON THERAPY JUICE RECIPES

Juicing is one of the four components of the Gerson Therapy.

The hourly fresh and organic juices are flooding the body with live, active nutrients, eliminating toxins and restoring the cellular function.

On the full therapy, the Gerson Patient drinks 13 x 8oz fresh juices daily:
1 orange, 4 green, 5 carrot/apple, and 3 carrot juices

oranges and orange juice

ORANGE JUICE

Ingredients for 8 oz / 236 ml Orange Juice:

  • 2 organic oranges

Unlike the other juices for the Gerson Therapy, the orange juice should not be prepared in your two-step juice machine so the skin of the fruit to does not release any aromatic oils, which can interfere with the Gerson Therapy.
Instead of using your PURE Juicer for the morning juice, use a simple manual reamer-style citrus juicer.

In cases of diabetes, arthritis and inflammatory/allergic conditions, Gerson Practitioners often substitute the orange juice for another carrot/apple juice.
(Patients work out their individual protocol with their Gerson Therapy Practitioners.)

 

green juice and ingredients

GREEN JUICE

Ingredients for 8 oz / 236 ml Green Juice:

  • 6-7 big leaves (with stalk) of romaine
  • Red leaf lettuce
  • 2-3 leaves of escarole
  • 2-3 leave of endive
  • 3-4 leaves of red cabbage
  • 2-3 young inner beet tops (inner leaves)
  • 2 leaves of Swiss chard
  • A quarter of a green bell pepper
  • 3-4 leaves of watercress
  • 1 medium green apple, Granny Smith or as sour and hard as possible

Try to include as many of the ingredients as possible and do not substitute.
Add enough of the approved ingredients to end up with an 8 ounce green juice.

Wash all the produce. Cut the apples and leave the core and the seeds out.
Grind your produce into the wet pulp while feeding your produce in the feed tube. Always rotate your produce, since mixing apples with any vegetable boosts all nutrients above what they measure individually.

You can roll up smaller produce into the bigger leaves. Insert the pusher into the feed tube and turn the juicer on. Push the produce through.

When using a press bag, the wet ground up produce falls directly into the bag. Fold the bag and transfer it over to the tray. Place the bag in the middle of the tray.

When using a press cloth, the wet ground up falls directly on the open cloth placed on a tray or baking pan. Fold the cloth according to the directions and transfer it over to the tray. Place the cloth in the middle of the tray.

AN APPLE A DAY KEEPS THE DOCTOR AWAY

While a lot of people juice preventative for overall health benefits, others juice to heal from serious illnesses. Especially in the later case it’s essential to get access to as many nutrients as possible in order to move the toxic and depleted body into a non-toxic and rebuilding state. In order to achieve that, it’s essential to use the most efficient equipment possible.

Long before modern two-stage juicers entered the market Dr. Max Gerson (creator of the Gerson Therapy) found that:

“It is recommended that the ground pulp is mixed together first before being put into the press cloth and being pressed”. This is because Dr. Gerson found that “the malic acid (contained in the apple) mixed with the ground carrots increases the amount of minerals from the carrots.”
“A Cancer Therapy – Results of Fifty Cases” by Dr. Max Gerson

Kathryn Alexander states, “The addition of apples to the juices is critical. Green sour apples are the best for their high levels of malic acid and pectin. When the pulp of both the apple and the vegetable are mixed together before pressing, the malic acid solubilizes and extracts a greater nutrient value from the vegetables than could be gained from the vegetables alone. Additionally, the pectin in apples is an immune-stimulant.”

“Nutritional Healing – After the Work of Dr. Max Gerson” by Kathryn Alexander

Our takeaway from the work of Dr. Gerson and Kathryn Alexander are the following two points:

  1. Mixing apple with carrots boosts the mineral profile. Today we know mixing apple with any vegetable boosts all nutrients above what they measure individually.
  2. Too much heat and frictional heat destroys enzymes

So let’s get to the argument of mixing pulp:

Dr. Gerson stated that a two-stage juicing process is necessary in order to get the best results from the treatment. This two-step process involved firstly grinding the fruit and vegetables, mixing the pulp together and then secondly pressing the pulp to extract the juice from it.

In our words again: It is recommended that the ground pulp of apple and vegetables is mixed together first before being put into the press cloth and being pressed in order to allow the release of additional minerals from the vegetables.

Gerson Therapy approved juice

GERSON THERAPY JUICER

MEET THE APPROVED GERSON THERAPY JUICER – THE PURE JUICER

Many people ask, what is the best Gerson Therapy Juicer? We know through healing success stories that the best and most efficacious juicer is a true two-stage and cold-press juicer.

Dr. Max Gerson wrote in his ground-breaking book A Cancer Therapy – Results of Fifty Cases that “two machines are required, a separate grinder and a separate press, for the correct preparation of the juice. These are findings of experiences over many years in which patients who used a one-unit machine had no success.”

Gerson Therapy Juicer Meets Rigorous Standards

The Gerson Institute continues to apply its founder’s rigorous standards to any juicer approved for their therapy as the result of patient treatments and recovery are dependent on the performance of the juicer.

We’ve always been convinced based on our testing data that the PURE Juicer is your best Gerson Therapy Juicer. Now, after an intensive test and review procedure, the Gerson Institute officially approved the PURE Juicer for its therapy.

We couldn’t be prouder that our PURE Juicer has received Gerson Therapy approval. We see this as an award for all the hard work we have put in inventing, designing and building the juicer. It’s another step to enable as many people as possible in their treatment process and living a healthier life.

PURE Juicers are used worldwide as the primary juicer in the kitchens of the premier Gerson healing centers, including: Health Institute de Tijuana, CHIPSA and Northern Baja Gerson Center to name a few.

The Importance of Two-Stage Juicing

Dr. Gerson had a few reasons for insisting on “two machines”. Besides the increased yields and nutrient density of two-stage juicing, it’s the effectiveness and the quality of the juice produced. Centrifugal or masticating juicers cannot mix pulp, however, a two-stage juicer allows the pulp to be mixed in a bowl after grinding. The reason this is so important is the release of the produce’s enzymes. When the malic acid of the ground-up apple is mixed with other vegetables the mineral and nutrient content of all the produce is raised, not just the apple!

Eating an apple a day is good for your health. But juicing your apple is even better!

Dr. Max Gerson found this to be true and Kathryn Alexander states, “The addition of apples to the juices is critical. Green sour apples are the best for their high levels of malic acid and pectin. When the pulp of both the apple and the vegetable are mixed together before pressing, the malic acid solubilizes and extracts a greater nutrient value from the vegetables than could be gained from the vegetables alone. Additionally, the pectin in apples is an immune-stimulant.”
