Beko or Philips Juicer??

Hi i am looking for advice on what juicer to buy. I have read good reports about the Philips model 1861 juicer. I might need to buy this in UK and bring over to Turkey. I also looked at the Beko juicer model number BKK-2144. If this is any good might be a better bet with their 2 year gaurantee. has anyone experience of the Beko model and comments on quality?

Re: Beko or Philips Juicer??

I have a juicer, sorry cannot remember make as it is stored away somewhere in the kitchen. Never used now. Its so messy, makes nice fruit juice but a pain the butt to clean. I would rather just go and buy some from shop.

Re: Beko or Philips Juicer??

Sorry can't comment specifically on a juicer but I have a Beko washing machine, dishwasher and fridge freezer and I can't complain at all. Not sure if you realise that Beko is a Turkish brand, sister company of the very popular Arcelik.

You must remember you pay a fortune for a Brand Name. Odds are it will be made in China with a Philips label on it and should be priced at 1/5th of the price asked.

Re: Beko or Philips Juicer??

There are many cheaper - esp Turkish brands, which are fine. I was only giving that price because the model was mentioned. I got mine second hand for 50TL. Most important is to make sure there is a strong motor, whatever the make.

Please do not think that I was being facetious, I was pointing out that the cheaper brands were the same as branded products. PS I would have no problem with buying Beko.

Re: Beko or Philips Juicer??

I have a juicer that is in daily use. Its not one of the makes in question so cant comment on your actual question but I just wanted to tell you, that up until last Thursday when my dads diabetic nurse came, I used to juice any fruit I could get hold of. It was not unheard of for me to eat / drink 5 pears or a family bag of apples at a time. I was tested for blood sugar and scored 9, apparently the fruit has too much sugar and I have been told not to juice fruit now only veggies.
My tip if you are buying a new juicer is to get one that is easy to clean and invest in a couple of bottle brushes for the spout.

A non diabetic with a blood sugar reading of 9 will bring their blood sugar level back to normal within a couple of hours. When you have a meal your blood sugar may rise to a higher level. Your problem would be if you gave your diabetic dad fruit juice, because he probably will not be able to 'process' the sugar.

Be careful all veggies have their own natural 'sugars'.
Here are some of the highest natural 'sugar' veggies.
Potatoes, sweet potatoes, yams, corn, parsnips, beets, carrots, that famous vedge tomato( which is a fruit but considered as a vedge), and MR sugar lumps, fresh Peas!
I have been diabetic for 24 years and eat everything in moderation.
I love fresh pea pods and that wonderful fruit, which is very good for diabetics in moderation, Cherries!

Good tip about the brushes.

nanamo keep an eye on your Dad.

Ron
