With a sticker price that's higher than many premium cold-press models, the $439 (£256, $649 AU) Hurom H-AA Slow Juicer will certainly make a negative impact on your budget. Unfortunately while the large and expensive machine plays the part of a luxury juicer, its performance misses the mark, which makes it an unwise purchase compared with competing juicers such as the $300 Omega J8006.
The first thing you'll notice about the Hurom H-AA is that it comes with numerous accessories such as strainers, even gadgets for preparing ice cream and pressing homemade tofu.
However, all that extra equipment results in a kitchen gadget that's overly complex to assemble and break down. The Hurom H-AA's many moving parts are not dishwasher-safe either and must be washed by hand which makes keeping the whole apparatus clean a big headache. The design of this appliance is extremely similar to another product, the $200 VonShef Premium Slow Masticating Juicer, which I also found a chore to use and wash.
