Like most parents I am always conscious of what my children are eating and ensuring they get enough of the good stuff in them. Fortunately my two both love fruit and eat it like they do sweets, so they have at least three portions a day. However I am not quite so good and am lucky to eat one portion a day. When I was recently sent the new Tefal Infiny Juicer to try, I decided to try and make a change to this if I could and attempt to improve my diet. I have read in many places that people who suffer from ME can improve their health with the diet, which includes more fruit and vegetables.
I have never owned a juicer before so it was all new territory to me, however I have read through quite a few reviews of this and other juicers, as well as reading up on recipes to try. They all seemed really positive for the Infiny so I was eager to give it a try. I also read that compared to a standard juicer the Infiny Press gives you 30% more juice, 35% more of vitamin C for fighting those common colds and 75% more antioxidants, which is definitely a huge plus for me.
The Infiny is really simple to put together - everything slots on top of the base one by one and all you do it put your desired ingredients into the tubes at the top and press go. Miss H has a major aversion to noisy appliances at the moment and freaks out if the hand dryer is turned on in public toilets. When she saw the juicer she covered her ears and ran into the front room. However, the great thing about this juicer is that it is so quiet. Once it had been running for a few seconds she came back in and happily stood next to me watching the fruit work its way through the machine.
I also love that all the parts of the juicer are dishwasher safe, so once I have rinsed it all off I throw it in the dishwasher and walk away. It makes the process a lot simpler.
The only problem I have run into is apples - I chopped the apple into eight pieces, however left everything else in place and let it go. The juicer wasn't happy about the skin though, and got backed up so I had to stop and clear it out before I could carry on. This just means I have to peel apples before I add them, which is a bit of a pain but certainly wouldn't put me off.
Since we received it just over a week ago I have used it every day. The children love the novelty of having 'special' juice with their breakfast, and it is an easy way for me to get some of those fantastic vitamins and minerals in me without forcing food down that I really don't enjoy.
I have also added the juice to yoghurt if the flavour was a bit too intense for them and they have loved it.
Here's a little video that I made which shows my demo of the juicer.
The juicer retails for £179, so it isn't on the low end of the scale but I really think it is worth it. It is easy to use, low maintenance, robust and great quality and it also looks stunning. And as if that isn't enough I have one to giveaway! If you would like to win an Infiny Juicer of your very own then follow the options below!
