Hurom Juicer Comparisons: H-AA vs. HZ vs. ALPHA and More
What Is Hurom Juicer and What Makes It Special?
Hurom makes slow juicers that are among the slowest in the market. That might sound like a bad thing, but in Slow Juicing, you want the slowest speed possible. Slower means more nutrient and less heat transfer.
Hurom is a Korean brand and their juicers are still made in Korea, which gives them an edge over some other brands.
In this post, we’ll look at the most popular Hurom Juicer models and compare them to each other.
Features of Hurom H-AA:
- Slow Squeeze Technology: rotates at the speed of 43 revolutions per minute, ensuring your juice retains all its nutrients.
- High yield of juice due to the slowness of the juicing process. The juicer squeezes the most out of your ingredients and brings out bone-dry pulp.
- Control lever allows you to control the amount of pulp in the juice. The strainer goes from fine to coarse.
- Use it to juice fruit, vegetables, leafy greens, nuts and soybeans to make nut milks or tofu.
- You can also create frozen treats using frozen ingredients.
- Streamlined design with slimmer back gives it a modern and sleek look.
- Available in many colors.
- Made in Korea.
What Is The Difference Between Hurom H-AA vs. HZ?
Hurom HZ is a more premium model than the H-AA model. But is there much of a difference between them?
- The Hurom HZ has the same features as the H-AA, except for one:
- It has an LED indicator that shows you what mode the juicer is operation on.
- Other than that, the difference is in the material and the attachments that comes with.
- The HZ model has a premium stainless steel finish.
- It comes with a citrus press attachment
What Is The Difference Between Hurom H-AA vs. ALPHA?
- Hurom Alpha has an upgraded drum that is slower.
- While the juicing speed is the same as other Hurom juicers, which is 43 RPM. The spinning brush has a rotating speed of 17 RPM. A slower spinning brush means that the juice is gently mixed within the bowl, which in turn prevents overflow and foam build-up.
Features of Hurom Elite Slow Juicer:
- 2nd Generation of Hurom Juicers.
- Twin-winged auger squeezes ingredients more thoroughly.
- 40 RPM speed.
- Juice cap on the spout for drip-free pouring.
- Juices fruits (hard or soft), vegetables, leafy greens, wheatgrass, nuts and more.
What Is The Difference Between Hurom Elite vs. H-AA?
- To be honest, we can’t seem to find much difference between the two models. In fact, according to Hurom’s website, Elite which is an older model, is slower than the H-AA model. But only by 3 rotations per minute, so we can’t say that’s a huge difference.
- The Elite is an older model, and the H-AA is one of their newer 2016 models. So you’ll probably notice more upgrades in the design and colors than the actual hardware.
- The H-AA models seem to be more compact and has a slimmer and more modern design. In fact, it is lighter than the Elite model with 10.6 pounds weight. While the Elite weighs 13.8 pounds.
- Both models are made in Korea.
Hurom Compared to Other Brands:
Now we’ve compared Hurom models to each other. Are you wondering how it compares to other brands?
One of the most asked about brands is Kuvings, which is another popular name in the world of vertical slower juicers.
For this comparison, we’ll compare the Kuvings B6000S to the Hurom Elite, as both are at almost the same price and range.
Hurom Elite vs. Kuvings B6000S Slower Juicers, What’s The Difference?
Features of the Kuvings B6000S:
- Juice processing at 60 RPM.
- Wide chute for easy juicing. Most ingredients can fit as a whole without the need for cutting.
- 240W motor power with quiet operation.
- Smart Cap for drip-free pouring. Self-rinse option helps clean the juicer.
- Perfect for juicing fruit, vegetables, leafy greens and making sorbet with frozen fruit.
How Does It Compare To Hurom Elite?
- If Kuvings is famous for one thing, it’s the wide chute on its juicers. The chute is wide enough to fit whole fruit or veggies without the need for chopping or prepping. This saves you a lot of time when juicing.
- On the other hand, Kuvings has higher RPM, 60 vs 43 RPM on the Hurom. This means that the Hurom processes the juice in a slower manner and therefore squeezes out more juice.
- Kuvings juicer is also made in Korea.
So the biggest difference here is the wide chute on the Kuvings, which makes it a great choice for anyone who wants to reduce their juicing time by eliminating preparation.
Hurom vs. Omega, What’s The Difference?
Omega’s slow juicers are another popular choice for a slow juicer, although they fall under another category of horizontal juicers. You can read our comprehensive guide on Omega juicers here.
Features of the Omega J8006:
- Horizontal masticating juicer with 80 RPM speed.
- Dual-stage juicing system.
- Multi-use: can be used for making nut butters, baby food, soy milk, pasta, grind coffee and mince herbs or garlic.
Can be used to juice any type of fruit, vegetables, leafy greens including wheatgrass.
- Made in Korea.
How Does It Compare to Hurom?
- First difference here is, Omega is a horizontal juicer, which works slightly differently than a vertical juicer.
- A horizontal juicer like Omega take up a lot of space and not as comfortable to use as vertical juicers. The height under the spout barely fits a glass, which means you’ll have to keep juicing small amount and transfer it to a jug or a bottle. Unlike with a vertical juicer which has a higher spout and allows you to juice directly into a jug.
- Omega does offer some vertical juicer models, but its horizontal models remain the most popular.
- Another thing is speed, Omega has a 80 RPM speed, which is considered slow in comparison to centrifugal juicers, but in comparison to Hurom’s 43 RPM, it is not the slowest juicer in its category. And you definitely want the slowest slow juicer for the most benefits.
