Canoly Masticating Juicer – Is It Worth the Hype?

I’ve gone through a few juicing phases over the years, and recently – after viral videos sparked interest in masticating juicers – many viewers have requested a review of one of these appliances. Enter the Canoly Masticating Juicer, Amazon’s current #1 Best Seller in the masticating juicers category. Priced at $90 (though the product page claims a list price of $150-$270), this model promises more juice, minimal foam, and a large feed chute. But does it live up to its claims? Let’s dive in.

Canoly Masticating Juicer Review

Where to Buy

Here is the Amazon listing where I picked up my unit. I bought it for $90, although the product page has shown the “list price” anywhere from $150-$270. Based on my research, I don’t see that it has ever sold for $270, and has rarely been sold for more than $130.

Unboxing and First Impressions

Upon unboxing, the Canoly Juicer presents a straightforward setup: two receptacles, a food pusher, and the main base unit with a 300W motor. It touts a large chute capable of fitting fruit up to 3.5 inches, though larger and fibrous vegetables require pre-cutting.

Most of my prior juicing experience has been with a centrifugal juicer, so I was eager to see how this masticating model stacks up. Masticating juicers are known for their efficiency and higher quality juice, but they often come with a higher price tag and slower juicing process.

Testing the Canoly Juicer

My initial tests involved citrus fruits – clementines, to be precise. I juiced them peeled and unpeeled to compare the taste. The peeled clementines produced a delightful, mostly pulp-free juice, while the unpeeled ones left a bitter taste and a sludgy texture. Lesson learned: peeling is the way to go.

Moving on to oranges, I opted only for peeled ones after the clementine experiment. The juicer handled them well, producing a vibrant, pulp-minimal juice that was satisfyingly fresh. However, the small size of the collection cups and their awkward placement posed a slight inconvenience.

Apples were next, and here’s where things got messy. Attempting to juice four small apples at once led to a comical overflow of juice and pulp. A more measured approach (two at a time) was more successful, yielding a delicious glass of apple juice with minimal foam.

The real test came with traditionally challenging items: celery and carrots. Both required pre-cutting, but the juicer managed them admirably, producing beautifully bright and flavorful juices. The celery juice, in particular, impressed with its intense flavor and attractive color.

There were only two occasions where food became stuck. In once case, with the apples, I managed to push them through using the included food pusher. In the case of the carrots, I had to run the motor in reverse for a few seconds in order to dislodge the food.

Cleaning is straightforward, with no major sticking points other than the pulp chute which typically required me to use the included brush to pick out small food chunks.

Disassembling the unit has one tiny quirk. The motor apparently needs to be run in reverse before it is taken apart. Otherwise, the augur/container seem impossible to remove. It isn’t clear why this step is necessary, although the instructions did state that it was a required step.

You can place unpeeled citrus fruit in the unit, but the result are too bitter for me.
The size and placement of the collection cups are the one con among many pros of this appliance.
Pulp was relatively dry upon the completion of my juicing session.

Final Thoughts

The Canoly Masticating Juicer performs well across a variety of fruits and vegetables, living up to its promises of more juice and less foam. The large feed chute is a significant advantage, though the small, awkwardly positioned collection cups detract slightly from the overall experience.

Cleaning wasn’t overly burdensome, comparable to other juicers and mainly requiring a good rinse. While I encountered a few minor hiccups (like the apple overflow incident), they were easily managed with a bit of adjustment.

Would I Recommend the Canoly Juicer?

I believe this is a solid purchase for those considering buying it. For those looking to dive into the world of juicing or seeking an upgrade from a centrifugal model, the Canoly offers a great balance of performance, ease of use, and affordability. Just remember to peel your citrus fruits and manage your apple expectations.
