In terms of juice yield and juice quality, nothing comes close to Green Star twin gear juicers. I believe Green Star Pro Commercial Twin Gear Juicer is in the same league or maybe even better. The motor stays similar but a lot of improvements were made to make assembly much easier and to improve its juice extraction efficiency. It’s not just your standard household juicer, it can also be used in commercial application. This is the only twin gear juicer that can be used in a juice bar without worrying about voiding the warranty.
Here are some remarkable improvements.
All Stainless Steel Gears
In the previous models the gears have a plastic end, now it’s 100% all stainless steel. In addition it has more cutting points and recesses have been incorporated to aid in processing harder produce. This reduces the overall strain on the motor, making it more efficient. Let’s also not forget that the bioceramic and magnetic technology is still at the heart of the gears. All these small details help in keeping your juice nutritious and full bodied.
Cooling Fan in the Motor
To prevent heat build up, the motor has now a built in cooling fan. This will allow you to juice continuously in 30 minutes.
You now have a place to put your favorite tamper on when not in use. No need to place it on the table or countertop, it’s really an added convenience. By the way I like the wood tamper more than the plastic one.
Green Star Pro has a commercial electric certification and was built with sanitation specifications in mind. If you plan to use it on your juice bar you’ll surely squeeze all the juices from fruits and vegetables up to the last drop. It produces the driest pulp among all the juicers I’ve reviewed. Higher yield from your produce means more revenue for your business.
However, please keep in mind that there’s a tradeoff for that efficiency. Juicing from this machine is slow. You also need to remember that you can only use it continuously for 30 minutes. You’ll have to give it some time to cool off, then it will be ready again for another batch of juicing. If you’re looking for a more reliable commercial juicer, check out this guide.
And here’s what remains the same.
Aside from juicing you can use this machine for your homogenizing or food processing needs. You can also make baby foods, breadsticks, nut butters, pâtés, frozen fruit, nut butters and sorbets out of this machine. There an optional pasta maker but you still have to prepare your dough. It’s not really the best machine for that job, but it can help you extrude breadstikcs, pasta and noodles.

Features & Product Details
Is it Easy to Use?
Twin gear juicers are quite intimidating and honestly they are difficult to use at first. There are just too many parts to deal with. However, once you get used to it, assembly and disassembly can be done in under a minute. The quick release latch mechanism makes it even easier. In the previous models, there are a bunch of knobs that you’ll have to tighten to secure the parts in place.
Is it Easy to Clean?
Though this juice extractor has a lot of parts, they are small and manageable, not to mention that these parts are dishwasher safe. Just give it a quick rinse and put it on your dishwasher. In addition you’ll get complimentary cleaning tools, a cleaning brush with a lot of tips and a scraper set. The cleaning brush can be used to reach the difficult corners of the complex parts, while the scraper set can be used to remove pulp that were stuck in your juicing screens.
I don’t mean to exaggerate but you’ll get the best tasting and the most nutritious juice out of Green Star Pro. It has all the technology that you won’t find in other juicers. It has a built in cooling fan to keep the motor cool, all plastic parts are BPA free, and the best part of it can be found in its gears.
The gears were designed to be ultra efficient in extracting juice from your produce. To be more specific fruits and vegetables undergo in a three stage juice extraction process as it passes along the stainless steel augers. With a very small clearance, it cuts, presses, and squeezes all the juice out of the produce in a very slow 110 RPM, resulting in a very dry pulp
