What Do Other Consumers Have to Say About The Healthy Press Juicer?
The Healthy Press is a very new product (URL registered August 2014), so there are currently very few online customer reviews. However, among those that are available, the Healthy Press Juicer appears to have a middle-of-the-road reputation, with some of the most common compliments citing its quiet motor and that it produces a lot of juice compared to other models.
On the other hand, some of the most common complaints reference that it is difficult to clean and that it does not juice leafy greens very well (becomes clogged easily).
With this said, the Healthy Press Juicer is manufactured by Big Boss (a division of E. Mishan & Sons, Inc), who also manufactures several other “As Seen on TV” products, like the Insta Mop and Aqua Stream. The company holds a B+ rating with the Better Business Bureau with 100 closed complaints, most of which appear to reference defective products and difficulty obtaining replacements under warranty.
Is the Big Boss Healthy Press Juicer Worth Your Money?
If you’re thinking about purchasing a juicer, does the Healthy Press represent a solid option? Perhaps, but keep the following in mind: The fact that the Healthy Press is a new product, there is competition that is priced even higher, and you'll be signing away your privacy and opening your doors for solicitation. Here's what we mean by that exactly:
Whenever a new product is released, it can be tempting to run out an purchase it, especially one that claims to provide all the benefits as the Healthy Press Juicer. However, especially in the “As Seen on TV” industry, these types of products often have a reputation among customers for not performing as well as advertised, and for being poor quality.
While we’re not saying this is necessarily the case with the Healthy Press Juicer, the manufacturer does have quite a few BBB complaints referencing defective products, as well as difficulty processing a warranty claim thereafter.
Although the Healthy Press Juicer website doesn’t provide any information about how it stacks up against the competition, it’s important to note that other masticating juicers on the market tend to be priced in the $250+ range. And in the world of kitchen appliances, it’s often the case that you get what you pay for.
Finally, by placing your Healthy Press Juicer order through the manufacturer’s website, you’ll be agreeing to an arbitration agreement, which severely limits your legal rights should you incur damages from using the juicer.
If you’re thinking about purchasing a Big Boss Healthy Press Juicer, you might want to do so through a local big box retailer. This way, you can easily return the product if you’re dissatisfied, without having to worry about return shipping charges.
