Norwalk Vs. Angel Juicer

by Bill
(Canada)

Hi All,

After reading the reviews and exchanges (yes and drama) ;-) I decided to look at the two of them and see what would work best for my needs (cancer of the bladder)...

Not knowing pretty much anything about juicing or juicers themselves... this is all very new to me.

Here are the thoughts and concerns (not in any particular order) of a total newbie:

Lifetime of the juicer,
how long will it last before it breaks down or malfunctions and if I'll be able to get replacement parts or will I be hooped and out $1000 - $2500 and be left with nothing but a VERY high priced paper-weight...

Cost
is spending this kind of money for a product realistic I mean if it works great but how many people are there out in the world who "need" healthy juices but can't afford it... kind of reminds me of the US medical system where you will die if you can't afford to pay....

I find this very upsetting that some people (like myself) will have to sacrifice something else in their life to be able to afford to "get healthy" by juicing. I think that anxiety is ramped up even more when I read the insults and drama... IE: do I buy the most expensive model or do I buy the "little" less expensive model and what will I have to sacrifice to get either?

Cost benefit ratio,
Very hard to decide and cut through the clutter and hype!

Fact vs. marketing hype
I'd love to see a few documented "head to head" comparisons of comparable (cost, production, longevity, warranty, replacement of parts, etc.)that are fact based instead of "opinions" or "comparisons against Unnamed juicer brands" which don't really mean a dam thing... Just more hype and coming off as a "slick" sales letter.

Quality & Quantity of juice produced
this also falls within the "Fact Vs. Hype" world...I hope all of you reading this actually realize that this shouldn't be and "my juicer is better than your juicer spitting mach. People like myself are actually sick and trying to find out more information, quality content and some direction to follow in trying to get healthy and stay alive! Don't be so selfish!

Ease of use
Self-explanatory

I thank you all for your time and in advance for your "Positive" feedback and the Admins for having this site.

The Super Angel is not as good a juicer as a Norwalk NEW
by: Anonymous

I side by side tested an SA 5500 vs a Norwalk using 80 oz of carrots. Results:
Norwalk 52oz juice
Super Angel 40oz
I then pressed the SA juice and extracted an additional 10 oz of juice.
Other:
I found I had to do extra prep cutting the carrots down into really small chunks
They were also slower to feed in
And I did not like the pulp in the juice
Based on the above while the SA is a great machine it is no Norwalk

Norwalk Vs SuperAngel 5500 NEW
by: Dale

Well as a person who has owned both of the newest machines. Yes I bought both, fisrt the Super Angel 5500 I figure why spend $3000 when I can spend $1100 incl taxs and shipping, but I ended up having to buy the Norwalk 275.
Why you ask! Well, My wife is currently on the Gerson therapy and quite simply the SuperAngel 5500 couldnt handle the long run time required to make the quantity of juice we make at a time. I can tell you both are very good juicers the Super Angel will actually extract more juice from there pulp then the norwalk but there is alot of pulp in its juice as well, so does it really extract more umm I would call it a tie after the pulp is removed from the Super Angel Juice.
That being said the Norwalk 275's juice is amazing it stores well for 2-3 days in sealed 8oz jars 3 days is pushing it imo we try to do 2 days worth plus a few cups extra everytime we juice so around 18-20 cups every two days this does not include the green juice which is done twice daily and must be takin fresh.
If your a cancer patient that is serious about following the Gerson therapy or a simmilar therapy the Norwalk 275 should be your choice the real reason is it can handle the extreme juice times you will need to put in.
If your a casual juicer 1-6 glasses per day the Super Angel 5500 Greenstar Elite 5000 will do fine for twin gears.
or to save even more money and have almost the same quality juice and its self feeding the Omega Vrt 350 HD in my mind would also be a good choice.

Juicer Reviews Compared... NEW

This is not the Norwalk vs Angel review but it is the Norwalk vs. other juicers and the best appears to be the Champion combined with the People's Press OR the Norwalk. Pressed juice gives the most juice with the most nutrients and preserves vital enzymes. Gerson therapy for cancer recommends either of the above. The only formal study I've found on juicers is by Hallelujah Acres:
http://www.hacres.com/pdf/documents/other-juice-extractor-comparison-2007.pdf.

I personally have experienced BAD customer service from Norwalk when calling to have questions answered re: their machine for a possible purchase. If they are not going to be nice now what happens if I have an issue after purchase? They are also not affiliated with the Better Business Bureau. Despite these things, the Norwalk is stainless steel like the Super Angel but the Norwalk is made in the U.S. and the Super Angel is made in Korea. There may also be issues with the Angel business owner as I BELIEVE he has gone out of business before (with the original Angel machines) and have read on Discount Juicers' website that the customers were left with no one to honor the warranties. The Super Angel juicer also had a comment on Amazon about metal shavings in the juice and the owner of the Angel commented back that that was a competitor who made the statement, so who knows? The owner also said that IF metal shavings were found (can you see them or will you never know?) he would replace the machine. Doesn't that defeat the purpose of juicing in the first place and what about the long term health consequences? Also, the owner of the Super Angel is Korean and does not have full command of the English language (he responds to customer issues) and on Amazon there are comments regarding customer service issues (not good due to language barrier). No comments on Amazon on whether or not warranty issues are addressed. Based on what I've read the Super Angel may be close to the Norwalk in a lot of respects but it isn't the same as pressed juice. I would recommend finding a juice bar near you to try it for yourself first. Look online or call Norwalk to find a place near you. You'll know by the taste and how you feel afterwards.

Norwalk Vs. Angel Juicer
by: Anonymous

I would like to see SCIENTIFICALLY TESTED RESULTS (not hype) on juice nutition of the same items juiced on both the Norwalk and Angel Juicer.

Put this to bed once and for all...to find out the bottom line.

Is the Norwalk really the most nutritious juice?
