Juicing has become very popular and recognized as a means of supporting vibrant health. Regular juicing provides many of the necessary vitamins, minerals, enzymes and other nutrients, as well as oxygen, in an easy to assimilate, concentrated and delicious form.
Many advocates claim miraculous healing properties of certain juices or combinations of juices.
Regardless of claims, it is safe to say that juices are a wonderful and natural way to provide the body with nutrient rich healthy supportive fluids.
There are numerous Juicers to choose from, but none compare overall with the K & K Shredder and Juice Press. The K & K Shredder and Juice Press are simple to operate and a breeze to clean. Because of the shredding & pressing system it utilizes to create juice; it out performs all centrifugal Juicers, masticating Juicers and pulp ejection models. Not only does it create a less oxidized, richer; darker and more nutrient packed juice, but it also gives you up to twice the amount of juice from the same amount of produce. Because you get more juice out of the
same amount, the money you save on produce will cover the expense of the K & K in a very short period of time. You can expect many years of quality performance and durability from the K & K Shredder & Juice Press.
Even the popular $2000 model does not compare to the K & K in overall performance, reliability and price.
The juice press is sturdily constructed for a lifetime of service. It's equipped with a hydraulic unit so easy to use that even a small child can operate it 4000 pounds of pressure extracts pulp•free juice quickly and easily. The large jucing areas capacity is 20 - 24 pints per hour. The press is 15 inches high and weighs approximately 25 lbs. It is constructed entirely of non-corrosive alloy & stainless steel.
About the only thing that can wear out with the press is the hydraulic unit which can easily be replaced for well under $25. However, this is highly unlikely to occur for many years because of quality of parts.
Ease of use:
The unit requires no electricity and is completely hand operated. The juice pan is stainless steel and its depth prevents juice from squirting out the front, sides and back as is common in competitor's models. The juice pan cleans up easily with cold water.
Both the shredded & press are guaranteed for a lifetime against material and construction defects and one full year against mechanical or electrical defect.
Here's how easy it is to use the K & K Shredder and Juice Press.
1. Wash all fruits and vegetables you are going to use to remove any dirt, residue toxins, or bacteria. Use fresh, clean water with some lemon juice or an alternative safe & non-toxic fruit and vegetable wash. Organically grown produce is preferred and highly recommended. Trim any blemishes from the produce.
2. If necessary, cut up produce to enable it to pass through the opening at the top of the shredder's housing. The shredder will handle most all produce quite easily and efficiently. Place the juicing pan, with open cloth over it, directly under the bottom opening of the shredder or shred the produce into a suitable bowl; and later, spoon onto the cloth sheet. Push produce through with the plunger as much as you like.
3. Place the juicing pan with folded cloth containing shredded produce into its place in the press. Tighten the hydraulic valve and pump the handle until juice flows freely. You can pump the handle as hard as you like and let the juice flow out as much as possible. Next, release the pressure on the hydraulic valve to lower the juicing pan. Repeat this process until all the shredded produce is juiced.
4. To clean the shredder; simply run a cup or two of cold water through the running shredder. Turn off the shredder, disconnect the power cord, then remove the housing and rinse in soapy water. Rinse out the juicing pan and cloth and allow to dry before reassembling.
It's that easy to get the highest quality juice available!
A Letter From Hal Stewart.
I would like to introduce you to the K&K way of making rich, delicious, fresh tasting juice that keeps up to 14 days with refrigeration; requires a smaller investment in the long run in equipment, time and produce; and has probably 10 times the mineral, vitamin and enzyme content. By comparison, other juices taste like 'colored water.'
Based on my 50+ years of research, I find that the K&K to be so superior that there is almost no competition. Because there is so little oxidation, the juice keeps up to 14 days or longer in the refrigerator with no apparent loss of value. At that point it tastes fresh, rich and delicious as when made; much more so than other juices which must be drunk fresh or they become thick and ropey. Of course, juice should be drunk fresh for maximum value. Unofrtunate1y, that is not always practical.
The K&K juice costs much less to produce as it requires only 3% of carrots per quart compared to 41/2 to 5% for other machines. One lady has been using her K&K for 36 years with some repairs. The K&K is built to last.
The K&K extracts up to 10 times the minerals, vitamins and enzymes, as shown on the enclosed chart, which accounts for it's superior, de1icicus taste. Other juices taste like 'colored water' by comparison.
Before Dr. Norman Walker, the 'Juice Doctor' passed away June 8, 1986 (born 1/28/1867 - 119 years young) he told me he preferred the K&K over any other juicer.
Dr. Max Gerson, MD, founder of the famous Gerson Cancer Institute, which is still helping great numbers of people who have been disappointed with medical programs; describes the K&K on pages 405 - 6 of his fine book, 'A Cancer Therapy - 50 Cases,' They are still recommending the K&K at the 'Institute.'
I was born 1/27/14. I am enjoying good health with no aches or no need for doctor or hospitals. I have been using, selling and researching juicers since 1941. I started with the Health Master, then the Vitasphere, the Sweden, the Marvel (later became the Champion), the Acme through it's various stages and the others.
The K&K is the best juicer on the market. You might have friends who will go in with you on the purchase and use. Or, you could start with a Champion from me and a K&K Press. As shown on the enclosed chart, the Champion does not do nearly the job of breaking down the material (shredding it instead of reducing it to a paste as the K&K does, but at least it doesn't have the oxidation of the centrifuga1s.

The Norwalk Juicer is the ultimate hydraulic press juicer.
Dr Norman W. Walker
Dr Norman W. Walker (1886-1985) was the man who had greatly inspired me, through his books, to start juicing diligently and eventually built this website. (This page is a tribute to this great man.)
Dr Walker was the guru of life, health and nutrition, in his time when very few understood the importance of, or relation between health and nutrition. He did a lifetime research into man’s ability to live a longer and healthier life. He himself lived to a ripe old age of almost a hundred years old, by advocating the drinking of fresh vegetables and fruit juices.
He was also the leading expert in eating raw fresh foods for nutritional health. Understanding the phenomenal recuperative value of fresh fruits and vegetable juices, Dr Walker had developed the Norwalk Triturator Hydraulic Press to extract fresh juices that preserve the enzymes and nutrients
|This book has inspired me so much that I’ve given out more than 100 copies to my faithful customers over the years|
The Ultimate Norwalk Juicer: The Built
The Norwalk Juicer has evolved over time and is now a much smaller kitchen-top unit compared to a gigantic one when it was first invented. It is a fully stainless steel equipment and even come in eight colors to match your kitchen color.
Well, the machine weighs at about 58 pounds (~26kg)! It is built to last a lifetime. There are very few movable parts so it doesn’t break. The only possible problem with this machine would probably be its motor bearings or any hydraulic mechanism issues.
The stainless steel body is easy to clean/maintain and is hygienic. Although the Norwalk comes with a 12-year limited warranty, obsolete spare parts in future, might be a consideration as this machine may probably last you till your next generation.
How It Works
This juice extractor works differently from the conventional juicers that we are so used to. There is a two-part process that takes a little getting used to. A little bit cumbersome but it does the job brilliantly.
Part 1 Process: When the produce are being fed into the housing shaft, a spiraling cutter grinder (fancy name: vortex triturator) grinds them into very small pulpy pieces that are collected in a linen cloth filter bag (provided).
Part 2 Process: The filter bag is removed, folded neatly and placed onto the hydraulic press tray. A lever is turned to activate the hydraulic press. A tremendous pressure is then applied to gently and completely press out the juice with all its sugars, vitamins, minerals, enzymes, phytonutrients, everything. The juice is collected in a bowl placed just under the pout from the tray. No foam, no froth, no oxidation. Just totally pure juice, fresh and sweet as it should be.
Juice yield extracted from this juicer is said to be 50% more than its nearest rivals (other triturating/masticating juicers), and up to 100% more than the lower range juicers (centrifugal/manual).

It reduces the produce to very dry, pale and almost wafer-like pulp that shows how every drop of juice is pressed out. This is amazing because even with a masticating (gear juicer), the pulp still comes out a little moist and with color. But with the Norwalk juicer, even the plant pigmentation is pressed out, leaving the pulp pale in color! I’m even thinking that this juicer might make a very good industrial juicer for the very high juice yield. Definitely more cost-effective in the long run.
The only drawback I can see from this method of juicing, though, is that pressing leafy vegetables with low juice content might be tricky. It is not impossible but would not be as efficient as a gear juicer. The way to get around this is to press leafy vegetables with other “harder” produce like carrots or cucumbers. Certainly not practical if you want to extract pure wheatgrass juice.
The method of juice extraction by hydraulic pressing allows almost no mixing of air with the juices. This minimizes oxidation of the juices, preventing it from spoiling quickly. And because all the enzymes and nutrients that make a produce whole have been extracted into the juice, they all work together to preserve the stability of the juices.
Juices extracted using the Norwalk Juicer may be kept for up to 3 days, filled to the brim in airtight opaque containers, and stored in the refrigerator. The quality of the juices, because they are whole and complete, is really outstanding and unequalled.
Being able to store the juices for a longer time, you can make your juices every other day. This is a trade off for the “long process” of the two-part juicing and washing-up.
What Else Can It Do?
Like what most gear juicers can do, the cutting-grinding function in the Norwalk juicer is useful for:
- Chopping up vegetables for salad
- Grinding nuts for making peanut butter
- Food milling to make baby food
- Making sorbet and ice cream from frozen fruits
- Grinding herbs
- Grinding coffee beans
- Making flour from any grains
This boxy machine is not a very complicated thing to assemble. Although there are a few parts to tear apart/assemble, eight to be exact, that need to be taken down for washing after juicing. Whether you extract a glass of juice or five gallons, the amount of washing would be the same.
There are eight parts to clean altogether: the filter bags, grid, grid holder, pusher, feed tray, housing shaft, cutter and the juice tray. They are all lightweight, easily taken apart and can be rinsed under running water. The only difficult part might be the washing of the filter cloth bags to ensure hygiene, and then can kept away in a ziplock bag and stored in the freezer until the next use.

The Proud Machine
This is definitely a very impressive machine but it’s not for the “faint-hearted”. The price of the machine from the Norwalk company is at a whopping US$2,495 per unit! Definitely a yes for you, if you are willing to pay the price for quality, and for a workhorse that will last you a lifetime. If you’re serious about juicing, usually juice in huge quantities for a big family (or practicing Gerson Therapy), then this machine can be very cost effective.
If you still want the Norwalk Juicer but think that the price is too high to pay, there is a cheaper alternative to the Norwalk Juicer. Although not as efficient as the Norwalk, it is able to produce high yield and high quality juice. The only challenge is that this other hydraulic press juicer doesn’t have the cutter grinder and does only the super press. You may want to explore the feasibility of the Welles Juice Press (a.k.a. Welles Peoples Press) by Samson.
The high juice quality using a hydraulic press ensures speedier healing and the ability to juice huge amount of juices that can be stored away, helps save a lot of time and money. The Super Angel Juicer might also be a good alternative as the Gerson Therapy encourages use of stainless steel juicers, though not mandatory.
If you’re new to juicing, no matter how enthusiastic you’re feeling, try a gear juicer first to see how you really like juicing every day. Gear juicers are definitely way easier to operate and easy to wash up. If even by that juicing is a chore, then the Norwalk Juicer is definitely not for you.
