Hurom H26 Alpha - Vertical Slow Juicer
Hurom once again leads the way with its third generation juicers, featuring a first ever ice cream maker and the smallest footprint yet.
3rd Generation Drum Assembly | Ice Cream Maker | Compact Design
The Hurom H26 Alpha was released March 2016 and represents the very latest in cold press juicing technology. The Alpha classification refers to Hurom's third generation drum assembly, which has been further refined to provide consumers with the best possible juicing experience.
Hurom have a bewildering array of model numbers to choose from and the differences between them don't consistently indicate major product improvements. Sometimes a different model number indicates nothing more than a different shape or colour, while all other features might be identical and interchangeable. From the original design to the newest, we have seen subtle improvements in functionality, performance and strength of parts.
The H26 Alpha incorporates the third generation drum assembly and combines it with a smoothie maker function and a first ever for cold press juicers — an ice cream maker.
The pulp control lever and juice cap makes it possible customise your juices and smoothies for just the right amount of fibre for your taste.
Operating at the new industry standard of just 45RPM ensures an even gentler process of squeezing the juice from your fruit and vegetables. What results is the purest of juices that preserves even more nutrients, vitamins, antioxidants and enzymes, and the best possible taste.
A Drying Stand for quick drying and storage of parts is included.
The Hurom will deliver the finest, silkiest, froth-free green juices, nut milks and any other kind of juice you can wish for, plus any number of smoothies. From soft fruits to wheatgrass, and everything in between, the Hurom is the Ultimate Cold Press Juicer for the most demanding of juicing fans. If you want the best, then the breakthrough Hurom H26 Alpha is the juicer for you.
New Sleek Design: The H26 is Hurom's sleekest model to date and boasts the smallest footprint in the Hurom range.
New Auger & Drum Design: A new modified auger shape allows for longer use and improved operation and the new drum design improves the overall juicing experience while maximising yield.
17RPM Spinning Brushes: By slowing down the speed of the spinning brushes, you can gently mix juice within the bowl and prevent over-flowing and foam build-up.
New Ice Cream Maker: A newly developed ice cream maker is included in the box, enabling you to make your favourite ice creams, sorbets and smoothies. Plus, to get you started, a 45 page Ice Cream Recipe Book is included.
Transparent Hopper: A handy addition allowing you to watch your ingredients from start to finish.
New Colour Range: Three modern colour design options, including Wine Red, Black and Titanium Silver, all in a new matte finish, are a complement to any kitchen environment.
Squeezed instead of ground to preserve natural flavour and nutrition
Hurom's innovative technology is the result of over 40 years of research into juicing. Traditional juicers use sharp blades rotating at high-speed to grind the fruit and vegetables. This heats up the food, causing oxidation and destroying the very nutrients and enzymes people are hoping to extract.
The Hurom Slow Juicer uses patented world-first technology (SST™) that slowly squeezes fruit maintaining a low temperature and helping preserve the natural taste and nutrition.
For a healthy lifestyle
In the modern world, so much of the food we eat is heavily processed, destroying the nutrients we need and the flavour we enjoy.
The Hurom Slow Juicer helps people get back to a healthier, more natural way of accessing vital nutrients and enjoying the rich natural flavour of fruit and vegetables.
Juice squeezed from a Hurom Slow Juicer is richer in natural vitamins, minerals, and enzymes than the output from regular juicers. These nutrients play a vital role in sustaining our bodies, helping us feel better and look healthier. There’s no mistaking the radiant shine of someone who gains all their nutrients from fresh natural foods.
Restoring balance to diets
It's hard for most people to totally avoid harmful foods. The Hurom Slow juicer helps right the wrongs of everyday living with delicious nutrient rich juice.

Renowned for their ease of use, speed of juicing and quality build the Hurom is ideal for those looking for a time saving, easy to use masticating juicer. With the addition of the smoothie function and ice cream maker, the Hurom will quite simply be the pride of your kitchen and last juicer you will ever buy!
Slow Squeezing Technology (SST)
Traditional slow speed horizontal masticating juicers have a much smaller surface area on the juicing strainer, which somewhat restricts the juice extraction process. Hurom changed that by inventing the vertical juicer and moving the juicing mechanism to the top of the juice extractor and using a strainer with a larger surface area, which results in the juice passing through much quicker after it has been juiced. While still operating at 40-80 RPM like traditional horizontal units, Hurom juicers can produce a litre of juice in about half the time it takes in traditional horizontal machines.
In the past customers who have been frustrated by the slow speed of horizontal masticating juicers have opted for centrifugal juicers, however high speed juicers oxidise the juice quickly, resulting in poorer nutritional value, very little enzymes and no storage value, however with the Hurom, you get the benefit of much faster processing times with juice that can be stored for 48 hours with minimal loss of nutrients.
Another benefit to having the juicing mechanism at the top of the juicer means the produce you feed in pretty much self-feeds as the squeezing screw draws the produce in, eliminating the need to use the food pusher with anything but leafy greens.
The unique silicone wiper-blade system rotates in between the juice bowl and juicing strainer, effectively cleaning the inside of excess pulp to prevent the juicer from blocking up during use. This part has been improved once more in the new Hurom Alpha models to ensure even less pulp enters the juice and less cleaning.
The silicone non-drip juice valve and cap on the juice outlet eliminates drips onto the work surface, which allows the juice bowl to be filled with water at the end of a juicing session so that the silicone wiper blades can do more of the cleaning and you less!
Finally, while the pulp lever may not offer the versatility of a dedicated blender, you get the best of both worlds with slow speed blending and maximum flavour, as well as the ability to control the flow of pulp into your juices.
Scientific Support for Hurom Technology
There are claims being made that with the addition of the juice cap on the new Hurom models, when fixed in the closed position, allows the juice to be combined together before being released. It is being likened to the theory long proclaimed by Max Gerson that when different nutrients in juice are mixed with one another under pressure, they produce a more nutritious juice as nutrients from the pulp are passed through. As yet there is no documentary evidence to support this with this particular juice extractor.
Dr Max Gerson (of the world famous Gerson Institute) recommend that pulp and juice should be mixed before pressing, thereby effectively capturing more nutrients from the pulp. Using the new juice cap, the pulp and juice are in contact with each other for longer, allowing the juice a greater opportunity to flush ‘sticky’ nutrients from the cell membranes and fibres (pulp) of the fruit and vegetables being cold-pressed. With the new Hurom models, the juice valve means you can have up to a half litre of juice that is potentially rinsing extra nutrients from the pulp as it is being ground up by the auger, or juicing screw. This mixing feature as the wiper blades stir the juice means, with mixed ingredients, your juice cocktail is already perfectly blended when you dispense it, with less foam or froth.
Tests from the Michelson Laboratories Inc. and the Korean Food Research Institute confirm that this juicer extracts: 42.7% more Vitamin C, 60.7% more Vitamin A when compared to traditional juicers. This research was certified by the FDA and the USDA.
Simple to Clean
Simply close the juice cap and pour water through the machine whilst it is running as normal. The water will flush out most of the remaining pulp and juice, which is handy if you need to rinse it when doing different juices. A thorough clean with the included brush can then be done, removing any fibres that might be caught in the mesh. There are two cleaning brushes provided with the Hurom and one of the brushes has a handy detachable smaller brush to get at hard to reach areas.
While vertical juicers are capable of juicing fruits, soft fruits, vegetables, leafy greens and wheatgrass, we consider them to be more of an all-round juice extractor. They perform better with softer produce like berries, pineapple and oranges, which horizontal machines generally struggle with, but if you mainly want to juice wheatgrass and leafy greens then the horizontal juicers do give better results. If you are looking for a juicer to do a bit of everything very well, then you can't go wrong with a Hurom slow juicer.
Hurom's 3rd generation models do produce superior results over the 1st generation models and in some instances can double the amount of juice produced, whilst reducing the amount of pulp passing into the juice.
Having the ability to make your own Soy, Almond, Rice or Oat milk can help you save money and also cater to different family members' dietary needs. Creating your own style can be done very quickly with the Hurom and this can be stored or made and used freshly each day.
