Samson was the innovator behind single gear juicing technologies. The Samson 6-in-1 Juice Extractor is a single auger, masticating juicer that slowly grinds and juices produce at 80 RPM. Individuals who juice high quantities of wheatgrass and leafy greens will find this design juices them exceptionally well. The slowly rotating auger is important because it minimizes foam and oxidation, allowing the juice to retain its nutrients, vitamins, and enzymes. This multipurpose juicer is capable of juicing items with little effort. If you like having variety in your diet, instead of the same ole’ boring foods, then get ready to be creative with this juicer. Create a variety of homemade foods like baby food, pasta, and salsa.
It comes with an adjustable pressure control to maximize the juice yield, the higher the number the more pressure that is built up. Setting #1 should be used for softer fruits, setting #2 for most items and setting #3 is good for wheatgrass, pine tree needles and leafy greens.
This juicer weighs approximately 15 pounds, comes with a handle, and is extremely sturdy. The juicing screen is stainless steel. It operates quietly and uses 160 watts of power with its one-third horsepower, single-phase induction motor. It is constructed of high-quality plastic, coming in black, ivory, or maroon finish. It is covered by a limited 10-year warranty for the motor and five-year warranty for the operational parts. If you purchased the juicer at a retailer and you have any technical malfunctions during this period, do not contact the retailer; instead contact Samson to address the issue.

Features & Product Details
Is it Easy to Use?
This juicing machine is easy to assemble, operate, and disassemble. Once you have put it together a few times, it becomes routine and takes less than a minute to quickly snap all of the parts together. The feed chute is only 1.5 inches in diameter. Therefore, you will need to prepare all of your produce by cutting them into appropriately sized pieces. Preparation takes about five to ten minutes, but if completed at one time, it significantly cuts down on juicing time.
After you begin juicing, do not put too much down the chute, otherwise the auger will become overloaded, and will stop rotating. If this happens, turn the juicer off, and reverse it several times until it becomes unclogged with your produce. Also, rotate your hard produce with softer produce as you push them. You will need to place some pressure on the food with the pusher to help it feed into the auger properly.
Is it Easy to Clean?
The juice press must be cleaned appropriately to prevent build-up in the screen. The parts of this juicer are top rack dishwasher safe, saving you time in the morning. Wash them on the low temperature setting. Skip the high heat drying cycle as this may warp the plastic parts. Otherwise, it is highly recommended that you wash the parts by hand, and drying them by hand or allowing them to air-dry. If you prefer to hand wash your parts, but do not have time in the morning, then at least rinse the parts off and remove the pulp from the screen. If you find the pulp has dried on the screen, allow it to soak in warm or hot, soapy water for several minutes to loosen the hardened particles prior to scrubbing with the cleaning brush.
This slow juicer effectively extracts the maximum yield of juice, preserving a high amount of nutrients and enzymes from your vegetables and fruits. The pulp comes out nice and dry, meaning it is very effective at extracting high levels of juice from the produce. The process utilized by the Samson 6-in-1 multipurpose juicer crushes and breaks up the pulp, then presses it against the juicing screen to extract as much juice from the pulp as possible. As a result of the slow juicing process, less oxidation is introduced into the juice.
You can store your juice for up to 72 hours in the refrigerator without worrying that it will degrade rapidly. However, it is better to drink it right after juicing to absorb the full amount of nutrients the juice has to offer. Additionally, use a tightly sealed, glass container to store the juice. A masticating juicer will always extract healthier and tastier juice than a centrifugal juicer.
What Kinds of Produce Can it Juice?
This machine can process all kinds of produce such as soft fruits, hard veggies, citrus fruits, green leafy vegetables, soy beans and almond nuts.
Hard produce include cilantro, asparagus, watermelon, carrots, ginger, sweet potato, broccoli, pumpkin, pepper, garlic, yakon, pear, pineapple, cauliflower, turmeric, cucumber, coconut, fennel, bitter gourd, celery, apple and beets.
Soft fruits such as grapes, avocado, papaya, kiwifruit, pomegranate, tomato, cranberries, blackberry, melon, strawberry, peach, and mango can be turned into a puree using the low pressure setting.
Leafy greens include lettuce, beet greens, cabbage, brussels sprout, spring onion, wheatgrass, peppermint, collard greens, kale, spinach, pine tree needles, romaine lettuce, dandelion greens, basil, moringa and parsley.
Citrus fruits like orange, lemon, mandarin, tangerine, lime and grapefruit.

Process basic seasonings such as onion, garlic, ginger and pepper for making sauces or simply if you need a hand on chopping or mincing.
Making Ice Cream
Choose fresh fruits, cut them into pieces and store them in the refrigerator. Then make a sorbet or fruit shake by adding yogurt, some milk and sugar to your heart’s content.
Grinding Coffee Beans
You can grind coffee beans (5 to 6 pieces at a time) using the mincing cone and the mincing nozzle. Some coffee beans (especially gourmet coffees) have higher oil content, this have to be dried overnight for easier processing.
Making Noodles, Pasta, & Bread Sticks
All the nozzles and mincing cone can be used to make pasta of varying shapes and sizes, you can choose between a flat or a round noodle. Nozzles with larger opening can be used to form bread sticks. The bad news is you still have to prepare your dough.
Making Rice Cake
You can make glutinous rice cake, cakes made of artemisia paste, and stir-fried rice cake by grinding cooked rice at home. Add grounded beans and rice powder to add variety to it and I’m quite sure kids will enjoy these glutinuous treat. You can also try this on your cheat day 🙂

However, by using the this juice extractor, you create healthy homemade juices that are full of vitamins and enzymes that go straight into your body.
