The Super Angel 5500 Cold Press Juicer Review
The Super Angel 5500 cold press juicer is a twin gear or triturating juicer that uses a two stage process to extract the juice from fresh fruits and vegetables. The first stage of this process uses stainless steel gears to slowly grind the fruits and/or vegetables into juice. The second stage then takes the juice and filters it through a screen which separates the juice from the pulp and allows for the pulp to be ejected through a tube.
This two stage process allows the Super Angel 5500 masticating juicer to create some of the highest quality juice and produces a very dry pulp. As with most other cold press juicers, the Super Angel 5500 operates at an extremely slow speed, in this case 86 RPM. Compare this to centrifugal juicers which operate anywhere from 1000 to 15,000 RPM. This slow speed makes for a juicer that is not only significantly quieter but one that creates less oxidation meaning the juice will retain more of the nutrients and enzymes and will be able to be stored longer.
The Super Angel 5500 is made entirely from stainless steel meaning this is one of if not the most durable cold press juicers made today. This also means the produce you are juicing will not be coming in contact with plastic parts. The gears are made from SUS-304 stainless steel which means lots of grinding force.
Although this slow press juicer operates at extremely low speed does not mean it is not powerful. This juicers powerful motor produces 3 HP of grinding power allowing for the gears to generate the maximum amount of juice from your produce. The Super Angel 5500 actually has one of the highest yields of any juicer on the market right now.
Key Features of the Super Angel 5500 Cold Press Juicer

- Slow operating speed, 86 RPM

The Super Angel 5500 masticating juicer is a multi-purpose juicer meaning that is can do more than just juice. In the case of the 5500 it can make things such as nut butters, soy bean juice, frozen fruit sorbets and tofu.
Although the Super Angel cold press juicer is truly one of the world’s best juicers it is not without its faults. This cold press juicer does an amazing job juicing leafy greens such as kale and wheat-grass but has a little trouble with softer fruits such as tomatoes, berries and melons. However this is often the case with cold press, masticating juicers. Centrifugal juicers typically do a better job juicing soft fruits but are horrible with leafy greens, however the juice quality will never be as good as what you get with a cold press juicer.
The Super Angel 5500 has a pretty small feeding chute (1.7 inch), this is a bit of a pain as you will have to cut up most of your produce before juicing. Many centrifugal juicers, and a few cold press juicers such as the Omega Vert350, have a larger feeding chute which allows for you to skip cutting up much of your produce, this definitely saves you time.
One of the biggest consideration when it comes to any Super Angel juicer is the price. You will not find a juicer from this manufacturer for under $1200 and some of their models will cost you upwards of $2000. This can be a major issue for many folks and understandably so. The good news however is that the Super Angel 5500 has been reported to produce 20-50% more juice that its leading competitors. This means that over time you will see significant savings on the amount of produce you have to purchase. Additionally, if you are serious about juicing leafy greens such as kale and wheat-grass and want to get the most nutrition from the produce you juice then the cost may be worth it.
