ACROSS THE EVENT HORIZON

As you fall feet first across an event horizon—the point where nothing can escape the black hole’s gravitational pull—you don’t feel anything change. But eventually, gravity is so much stronger at your feet than your head that you’re stretched apart, like Play-Doh, until you snap.

Its single vertical auger turns at a slow 47 rpm, making it one of the slowest juicers available — key for getting maximum nutrients and enzymes from produce — and it still yielded more juice than nearly every other model we tested, meaning theres less going to waste. It comes with a 10-year warranty on parts and the motor, so you can crank it up every day without worry about wear and tear.
