Unless you’ve been living in a hole for the past few years, you know all about the wonders of fresh juice – miraculous recovery stories, juice diets, raw diets, eating clean, alternative therapy, natural remedies and cocktail fads. Okay, maybe that last one isn’t quite for the health conscious but you get the idea.

And while I’m not exactly convinced drinking your five a day will help cure cancer, there’s no denying that freshly squeezed juice is delicious. To buy it from your your local supermarket or nearest juice bar however is not cheap. Not to mention it’s probably full of sugar, milk, water, ice and other contaminants to help bulk it out (all for a better profit margin)…

If only there were a solution! Oh wait there is – the Philips HR1855 Viva Collection Juicer (or the HR1863 if you prefer the brushed aluminium look).

That’s right. You can now make your very own juice right from the comfort of your own home.

Available in black (the HR1855/01) or brushed aluminum (the HR1863/01), the 75ml XL Feeding Tube means that you can juice apple whole, core and all.

Double, Double, Toil and Trouble

Just imagine this; you’ve just received your weekly fruit and veg box from your local green grocer and it’s full of lots of lovely ripe, seasonal produce… but what do you do with it. Whack it in a juicer, that’s what. The possibilities are endless.

And with so many juicing recipes in books and online, you’ll never be short of ideas. In fact the HR1855 helps get you started with a rather tasty orange, carrot and ginger juice recipe.

Although personally I like to go freestyle and wing it like some kind of mad scientist. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn’t but that’s part of the fun of juicing and it’s a great way to sneak some extra green leafy goodness into your diet. It’s also great for making some rather tasty cocktails too…. but shhh… don’t tell anyone.

The pulp container is clear, so not only can you watch the magic, you can see when it’s full.

Easy Peasy Lemon Squeezy

But of course juicers aren’t exactly new. Available in black (the HR1855/01) or brushed aluminum (the HR1863/01) this juicer is the latest in a long line of Philips juicing machines and is part of the Viva Collection. So what makes this juicer so special? Well apart from topping numerous best seller lists, the Philips HR1855 can juice whole fruit like apples thanks to it’s 75mm XL Feeding Tube (citrus fruits will need to be peeled first and stones from plums etc will need to be removed for obvious reasons), has a 700 Watt motor (to extract more juice), provides up to 2 Litres worth of juice and is super easy to use.

The Philips HR1855 is made up of seven easily to assemble components. Apart from the motor / base, they’re all dishwasher safe too.

But aren’t juicers messy?

Well yes, but that’s why you invest in a juicer with “maximum juice, minimum fuss”. Not only does the HR1855 allow you to make 2 Litres worth of juice, it ensures you get the max amount of liquid out of your fruit, therefore making the pulp so much easier to dispose of – Basically the drier the pulp the more good stuff you get in your glass and the easier it is to scoop out and plop in the bin. And lets face it, no one wants to be cleaning up sloppy fruit bits.

Thanks to the 700W motor and sieve, the pulp is super east to scoop out of the pulp container and means you get the max amount of juice in your cup.

Philips also credit their ‘QuickClean’ technology for simple clean up after juicing. Not only are all the removable parts dishwasher safe, but thanks to the electro-polishing process used on the sieve (that’s where the juice and the pulp part ways) the surface is smooth and easy to wipe any stray fibres and pulp left behind with a sponge.

And I’d have to agree – the parts are very easy to clean, even for someone who doesn’t own a dishwasher like me.

Juiced To The Max

There are however a few fruits that Philips recommends you should not juice such as bananas, papaya, mango, avocados figs and other starchy fruits which just don’t juice so well. They do kind of work (I tried juicing some bananas before I read the instructions), you just don’t get much juice and they are harder to clean up – it’s essentially a waste of the fruit and could possibly break your juicer (so I wouldn’t risk it).

If you do want bananas etc in your juice though, you can always add it in later with the help of your friend the blender. I also had a few issues with adding mint, but I found a few handy tips online like adding the sprigs in between two sticks of celery which kind of works. I’m still searching for the perfect solution.

The HR1855 also doesn’t come with a berry funnel like the the HR1864 and HR1856 – sorry berry lovers. But then I guess it all goes in the same whole at the end of the day.

The only other thing that could be a little troublesome is the jug. While it does the job, it’s only 750ml. I’m no maths genius, but that’s a lot less than 2 Litres which means if you plan on juicing to the max, you’ll need another 2 Litre jug on standby to put it all that fruity goodness in. It’s also advised you get yourself a drip tray for the inevitable after dribble – but if you already own a juicer you’ll likely be wise to this.

Overall, this is a good little juicer. It’s reasonably priced, it’s 700 Watt motor extracts maximum juice, easy to assemble and it’s almost faff free – if you treat it right. Great for those who like an occasional treat or those who want a daily dose of raw nutrients. So until they invent a juicer that can clean itself (imagine the price tag on that), the HR1855 is a sure bet.

Available in black (the HR1855/01) or brushed aluminum (the HR1863/01) this juicer is part of the Philips Viva Collection.
