About Life Juicer
The Life Juicer is an “As Seen on TV” juicer that claims to crush its contents before pressing, which can help give you the most juice from the least amount of food, in addition to less pulp waste. In fact, the Life Juicer is claimed to provide up to 35% more juice and 65% more vitamins than traditional juicers.
But can you really expect these same results from the Life Juicer in the real world? Let’s squeeze the facts and see what’s left over.
Details About the Life Juicer
Instead of chopping, shredding, and straining—essentially destroying—your food like traditional juicers, the Life Juicer is a “slow” (e.g. masticating, similar to how wine is processed) juicer that operates at 80 RPMs, and uses 150 watts of power to extract the most flavor from a variety of fruits and vegetables, including leafy greens, nuts, and soybeans. The Life Juicer’s silent but quiet motor is claimed to accomplish this in three steps:
- Add your fruits and vegetables to the hopper.
- Allow the spiral auger to pull the food in, which will then crush and press it.
- Enjoy your beverage, which can contain 10X the amount of nutrients as regular juicers.
During juicing, the Life Juicer’s rotary brush automatically separates pulp from juice, while also cleaning at the same time. In addition, its cold-press technology reduces heat, which eliminates oxidation and helps to retain more of your food’s essential vitamins and nutrients.
The Life Juicer is constructed of stainless steel, and all parts are claimed to be dishwasher safe.
Life Juicer Pricing & Refund Policy
The Life Juicer is only available directly through the manufacturer for three payments of $39, plus $14.99 shipping and handling (total of $131.99). With your order you’ll receive the Life Juicer, juice carafe, pulp container, and 100-recipe guide. You can also order the healthy dessert maker attachment for an additional $9.99 S&H.
The Life Juicer ordering page states that the product comes with a 60-day money back guarantee, less shipping and handling fees. However, the Returns page on the same website claims to only offer a 30-day return policy. In order to clarify the refund policy or to initiate the refund process, you’ll need to contact customer service at 973-287-5153.
What Do Other Consumers Have to Say About the Life Juicer?
The Life Juicer is manufactured by Viatek Products based out of Orlando, FL, who holds an F rating with the Better Business Bureau. Even though the company only has two closed complaints over the past three years, it appears that haven’t responded to either.
Despite the fact that the Life Juicer URL was registered in June 2013 and its trademark was awarded in November that same year, other than bloggers who received free Life Juicers in exchange for write-ups, online customer reviews were essentially nonexistent at the time of our research.
What’s the Bottom Line About the Life Juicer?
With similar products such as the Provita Juicer priced as high as $400 or $500, the Life Juicer can certainly seem like a tempting option. But is it really worth your hard-earned money? The short answer is “maybe,” and here’s why:
First and foremost, even though the Life Juicer appears to have been on the market for several months, we were unable to locate any legitimate online customer reviews during our research. While this could be the result of the product having been recently being marketed, the bottom line is that we’re currently unable to gauge overall customer satisfaction. Which leads us to the next important consideration…
Finally, even though Life Juicer is claimed to provide up to 35% more juice and 65% more vitamins than traditional juicers, the website doesn’t provide any additional information about this. In other words, how did they come up with these numbers? What other juicers currently on the market did they compare to? Basically, these figures just end up as marketing hype, or “empty” numbers, because we’re not given a reference point for them.
Bottom line: With no online customer reviews, we’re unable to say for certain whether or not the Life Juicer performs as advertised, or if it’s worth your hard-earned money. However, with the reputation of most “As Seen on TV” products, it’s very likely that it doesn’t perform quite as well as the infomercial makes it appear.
