Fagor Slow Juicing Platino Review

Posted on Mar 7 2014 - 8:00am by Susan Bewley

Disclosure: I received these products for free to review. The opinions in my review are honest and my own.


Over the past few years, I have been spending quite a bit of time trying to make sure the food in our house is not only healthy, but delicious. While some people diet, I have been trying to change our overall eating habits as I lose weight, trading convenient foods for things that taste great and are filled with nutritious ingredients. One of the things I was determined to get rid of this year were sugar filled fruit juices. Not only that, but I have been hearing all over the place the health benefits of juicing and how it’s a great way to add more fruits and vegetables to your diet. My only problem was that I didn’t have a juicer. As I was researching into different juicers and trying to look for the perfect one, I discovered the Fagor Slow Juicing Platino. Curious to know more, I reached out to the company, who was delighted to have me review their latest juicer!

Fagor Slow Juicing Platino: What is It

Looking for a high quality juicer that is perfect at extracting juice from your favorite fruits & vegetables while keeping as many nutrients as possible? If so, we think you will love the Fagor Slow Juicing Platino. This slow juicer is BPA free and has a beautiful black and gunmetal design that is not only compact, but light! This slow juicer does not oxidize or separate, allowing you to preserve more organic nutrients from your food and keep it in as much of its natural state as possible. As well, with its 2 step juicing process, it extracts juice twice from the fruit without squeezing or shredding your food, giving you a dry, dehydrated pulp and delicious juice. With this easy to clean and compact juicer, you will find that juicing is not only healthy, but fun!

Fagor Slow Juicing Platino: Overall

When my juicer arrived, I will freely admit, I was like a little kid. After all the wonderful books and things online I had read about juicing I couldn’t wait to get started. The next day, I bought just about every vegetable and fruit that I could find at a reasonable price, including spinach, strawberries, oranges, blood oranges, and bananas. I just couldn’t wait to get started juicing. When I took the Fagor Slow Juicing Platino out of the box, the first thing I noticed is that it was mostly together and very simple to set up. I had the whole unit cleaned and together in less than five minutes, which I thought was a pretty impressive feat. Not only that, but it took up very little room on my counter, one of my husband’s biggest concerns with adding another kitchen appliance to our kitchen.

While it being easy to set up and put together is obviously important, it still didn’t say how well the machine juiced. Once I had my fruit cut up and ready to go, I was amazed at just how easy it was to get the machine not only going, but juicing. Within minutes, I had juice from the oranges I squeezed and very dry pulp that was neatly coming out of the chute. Like most juicers, there was still some pulp in the juice, but this wasn’t a big deal to us – we tend to prefer beverages with pulp. Once I had enough for about 3 glasses of juice, I turned off the unit and unplugged it for cleaning. Just like juicing, cleaning was a snap. The entire unit was apart and both of us cleaning it together in no time! So far, I adore my slow juicer and don’t know how I got along for so long without one. I right now can’t even imagine buying store bought orange juice after making my own. Based on our own experience with the Fagor Slow Juicing Platino, I am happy to give this juicer an A+ rating and recommend it to everyone who is considering buying a juicer!

    I love that the juicer is easy to set up and BPA free. My current one takes up quite a bit of time assembling and cleaning afterward. Would definitely check this out. Thanks!

    I have wanted to try one for a while. The price is a bit high.

  8. Marcia Lee March 8, 2014 at 3:23 pm - Reply

    I have tried juicers, but not recently. I have memories of tedious clean up and hardly any juice. I would love to juice, if it was easy to do, clean up was easy and I didn’t have to buy out the produce department to get only a few glasses of juice. Your review didn’t mention how much fruit was needed for a glass, but the Fagor Slow Juicing Platino sounds like it would fit most of my requirements & hopefully all of them.

      To make 3 – 12 oz cups of orange juice, I used 4 large naval oranges 🙂

    it’s the set up/clean up that keeps me from juicing!

    Could you please comment on how well (or not) this machine juices celery stalks, chard, cilantro, ginger root, and other such “stingy” veggies? Thanks so much.

    • Susan Bewley March 9, 2014 at 1:52 pm - Reply

      So far, no problems. I haven’t had any string in my juice yet.

  11. Kelly March 9, 2014 at 9:08 am - Reply

    That cracks me up that you acted “like a kid” when you got the juicer. That is exactly how I would act. Go buy out the organic produce section at the store 🙂 I have been wanting a juicer a long time. Such great health benefits. We do smoothies every morning but only use a blender so we have to buy store bought juice and cannot add some of the more beneficial veggies such as carrots, beets, etc. And for the record…TOTALLY uncool to have that gorgeous glass of orange juice at the end of the post. Now I am craving freshly juiced orange juice!

  12. Darrah K March 9, 2014 at 9:48 am - Reply

    I’ve been reseraching what juicer my family should invest in and the Fagoe Slow Juicing Platino looks perfect! I love that assembly and clean up are fast and easy. I also love that it doesn’t seem to make a huge mess all over the counters. The fact that the price is so reasonable doesn’t hurt either!

  13. Margaret Smith March 9, 2014 at 10:56 am - Reply

    Love your review on this Fagor Slow Juicer. There’s nothing like fresh juice and it’s a sure way that I can maybe get my kids to intact some veggies. I like the idea of adding veggies to some fruit to get the benefits of both.

  14. David Smith March 9, 2014 at 11:53 am - Reply

    I would really like to have one of these. We would put it to use probably every day. I had a juice extractor many years ago, but it was the old type that spun at about 10,000 RPM and shredded the fruit or vegetable as it went in. It was noisy and messy and a real pain to clean. This juicer looks like it would be easy to take care of. Thanks for the review.

  15. Oh Wholly Life March 9, 2014 at 12:25 pm - Reply

    I own the Fagor Tabletop Halogen Oven, which I’ve had for a few years and I’m VERY impressed with with the Fagor name. I’m not surprised that you are in love with the Juicer. I definitely want to add a juicer to my kitchen. I began receiving organic produce delivered weekly about a month ago and I could make very good use of it with a Juicer.

    • crisairy January 7, 2015 at 2:15 pm - Reply

      Hey Kelly, couldn’t help but noticed you said something about getting Organic produced delivered to you. How does that work? I wouldn’t mind that since I have a hectic schedule and it makes it hard driving to the nearest store with organic produce which happens to be like 30 mins away and not always they have organic available :/

  16. Brutus Duffy March 9, 2014 at 12:27 pm - Reply

    I ak trying to stay away sugared fruit drinks as well and have also been longing for a good juicer. This Fagor juicer looks great, and seem pretty easy to use and clean. I also like that it separates the leftovers into a separate container that i could easily carry to my compost bin.

  17. Patrice March 9, 2014 at 1:07 pm - Reply

    I really like the fact that this is BPA free. I think the idea of a two step juicing process makes sense. I think much of the juice in other juicers, stays in the pulp.

  18. Chris March 9, 2014 at 1:17 pm - Reply

    I like that it doesnt shred the fruit because I hate pieces of fruit in my juice. I like no pulp. Plus it seems like this one extracts everything so you are not wasting food. My kids would have fun with this and its healthy!

    I was just looking for a juicer and here’s a contest that might save me some money! That is, if it has the features I’m ultimately looking for?!

  22. Cheryl Rahkonen March 9, 2014 at 2:35 pm - Reply

    This is a beautiful juicer and I would love to have it. I love that it comes with two containers one for pulp and one for juice. I prefer that the juicer leaves a little pulp and then I don’t have to add it back in. I had an older juicer that was so hard to clean that I just didn’t use it. From your review, I learned that this juicer was easy to clean which is a big plus for me.

  23. lisa March 9, 2014 at 2:54 pm - Reply

    This would be a perfect way for me to get my vegetables. I don’t like to eat them. I’ve found when they are mixed with fruit, they taste pretty good.

    I have been a vegetarian for 40 years and I am always on the lookout for tools to enhance and improve my diet as well as that of my family (not vegetarians). This juicer and and the overall juicing method looks amazing. I have a juice but find I do get some strings when doing celery etc. This is right up my alley and it does look pricey it seems well worth it. Thank you for the wonderful review. Hopefully I will win and will also write a review on my blog thanks!

    I am so excited to try this I have wanted to juice for the longest time and this would be the best late wedding present ever.

    This sounds like a great juicer! I like that it’s fairly compact and easy to clean. I currently use a machine that just grinds up everything…I think I would prefer this one as it takes out most of the pulp.

  27. Jerri Davis March 9, 2014 at 3:24 pm - Reply

    I like that the Platino uses a 2-step process in which juice is extracted twice before it enters your glass. Thank you, Jerri Davis

    We have wanted a juicer for some time, but have been unable to afford one. This one looks awesome! Thanks for the giveaway!

  29. This seems like a really easy to use juicer. I have a juicer my mom gave me that looks like it’s from the early 90’s. It’s not my favorite kitchen appliance! I would love to have a nice one like this. Looks easy to clean too!

    This review was very informative. I currently make green smoothies with my blender, but the possibilities are endless with this juicer.

    This looks like it has everything I have been looking for in a juicer–small on the counter, easy to use and cleanup. I’ve been reading some great sounding recipes for juices as well as ways to use the leftover pulp.

  34. nancyfancypink March 9, 2014 at 8:48 pm - Reply

    I had a juicer for years and loved to make a variety of juices. However, clean-up was a PAIN! I am glad to see that with this juicer, the pulp comes out separately and doesn’t get all stuck in the machine like my last one. Looks good!

    I enjoyed your review of this juicer. You addressed a lot of the details and have convinced me that this is the juicer that I need. Thank you. Do you do anything with the pulp besides compost it? I wondered about adding veggie pulp to recipes and soup.

    This sounds like the perfect juicer. I tend to juice green vegetables more than fruits so I’d love to know if you’ve since tried juicing those. Simple clean up is something I appreciate since I like to juice in the morning which is when I’m usually pressed for time. Eager to give this juicer a try 🙂

      I actually did this last night – a green shake with spinach, mint,and a variety of different fruits. It did a fantastic job juicing the spinach. It was smooth, tasty, and super easy to clean!

    Living in AZ, we do have citrus trees. The job that I will be taking over in May (on site motel manager) has a blood orange tree out front and a grapefruit tree in the back. The current manager doesn’t do anything with the fruit or takes care of these mature trees. I would love to have a juicer for these fruits (if the trees can survive without being adequately watered for a couple more months)
    Such a waste!

  46. Sandra Beeman March 10, 2014 at 7:57 am - Reply

    We always have juice, usually orange on hand at our home. I certainly would benefit from more fruits and especially vegetables as both are not really favorites of mine. I like that this juicer is easy to use and to clean and is compact. Before I would purchase any juicer, I would love to try some of the actual juice which is probably wonderfully tasting.

    I love the fact that the juicer is BPA free & is easy to clean up. Another useful tip is that once you juice your veggies, you can always heat it up for a delicious & healthy soup.

    Have you juiced wheatgrass or other grasses like oat grass or barley grass? I burned out the motors on a couple of cheap juicers before I got a Champion, but it did not juice leafy greens or grasses well at all.

This product looks fantastic, I love that it’s so easy to clean. That’s one of my biggest concerns about new appliances – if it takes longer to clean than it does to use it, it’s probably not going to make it into my kitchen. Thanks for the great review!

This will be so great as I would be able to make healthier all natural items for my family that I know my kids will love. Almond milk and almond cookies made from the almond pulp are their favorite!

    There are so many possibilities with this juicer! Since I’m diabetic, I can make my own fruit juice and it wouldn’t have all the added sugar that the stores sell. I also need to eat more vegetables. I would be able to make a combo juice with this!!!

    I have always wanted a juicer to try out but have never owned or even tried one yet. I would like to take fruit and veggies and experiment to see which combination I would like the best. Everyone says juicing is so good for your body so I really do need help with that and could really use one of these!

    I would LOVE to win the Fagor Slow Juicer because I’m hearing more and more about the benefits of juicing. I bought my son a juicer for Christmas; it’s what he wanted and he feels so much healthier juicing. My other son would also love one. I would like one because I would like to feel healthier, as well.

    Thank you for reviewing how easy it is to clean, as that’s always my first question regarding kitchen applies (yes, even before “how well do they work?” ’cause if I can’t clean it, it doesn’t matter). I like pulp, so I will definitely keep this model in mind.

    Where are your glasses from in the last photo? I really, really like them, too!

    I like the Fagor Slow Juicer. The vegetables and fruits taste way better than the conventional juicers.

    I love smoothies, and I’d love to be able to make juice also, but that’s not a job my blender can handle. I really like the compact size of this juicer also, and anything that’s easy to clean is a winner in my book. Thanks for the great review!

    I would love to own one! My family needs to start eating more fresh greens and fruits and who doesn’t love juice! This sounds Luke an easy way to get some good things into my families bodies!

  100. Vikki Cousin March 16, 2014 at 3:14 am - Reply

    The fact that the Platino Juicer doesn’t run fast is a plus! This means it won’t cook the juice which destroys vitamins. This juicer being compact is perfect because I have a tiny kitchen.

    I have been looking for a juicer for quite some time and I think this one’s for me. I want one that is easy to clean and one that efficiently juices my fruits and vegetables. My daughter and I both have chronic illnesses and the smoothies we could make with this will help us to maintain a healthy diet filled with fresh fruits and veggies.

    I love the idea of a slow juicer. Easy to clean and does a great job making it into juice which, hopefully,will inspire my young child to drink healthier beverages and me to set the better example by drinking them too.

    I like that it’s BPA free. I also think it’s a cool function that it re-squeezes it a second time.

    This is intriguing. My son loves juice, and my daughter is just old enough to start drinking juice. I would love to give them fresh, healthy juices instead of fake ones.

    This juicer looks a lot nicer than the juicer we had. I think it was an Oster? We wore it out I guess, the blades wouldn’t turn and food would get caught in areas and make a mess or shut the machine off. The way this one is designed I can’t foresee the troubles we had happening, which would be nice. I wonder if the cleanup for this one is better than our old one.

    I would like to try this juicer. That it’s easy to clean and doesn’t take up much room are definitely pluses. I would like to make some homemade v8 juice.

    I’ve been searching for a really good juicer for awhile now and think this might be the one. I love that it separates the skin, pulp, etc from the juice in a separate containers. So, I can add them back in if I wanted to or use it in recipes to not miss most of the nutritional aspect of juicing. It’s BPA free so better for you and the environment. Sounds fabulous!

    I am glad to learn this is easy to set up, and easy to clean. My mom had a juicer, and it was a pain to clean and take apart. That fact turned me off from getting a juicer, but after reading your review, I am hopoing to be able to get one of these soon.

    I believe this is a phenomenal product for anyone wanting to be fit and healthy.A product that can avoid sugary products and make a nutritious drink from fruits and vegetables.This will provide the body with as much healthy vitamins needed for a healthy nutritious body.

    This is exactly what I have been looking for. I have recently started living a more healthy lifestyle to lose weight and to be healthy again. I am also looking to stop drinking the juice that has so much sugar in it. With this juicer I see that I would be able to still have juice like before without the added sugar! I know water is good but sometimes its nice to have a glass of juice. Also an easy way get some vegetables in my daily diet.

  113. Elisha Cook March 21, 2014 at 2:34 am - Reply

    Do you find juicing to be expensive? Or have you find ways to reduce the costs. Another concern it’s good waste and taste. How do you balance taste with all of the essential greens while eliminating all the assists in fruits and some vegetables?

    • Susan Bewley March 21, 2014 at 11:14 am - Reply

      I usually pick what I’m juicing based on what is for sale. It is more expensive than what you would find in stores, but it is also not filled with extra sugar, preservatives, and other fillers to extend its shelf life. As for balancing taste, it is learning what flavors mix well. For example, pineapples and mangoes cover up the bitter taste of spinach 🙂

    I find it interesting that it can extract all that and that well without squeezing or shredding everything. My mom gave me a juicer to try out that was, I would have to say, at least 15 years old and it was a horrible experience!! I was quite a mess and really didnt get any juice out of anything that I put in there. I would love to win this so that I can finally experience juicing like it is suppose to!!

    We have a juicer right now (Probably the cheapest you can buy) and it shoots so much juicy pulp out! I feel like there is so much juice it is wasting 🙁 I love it review and it is really making me contemplate putting ours to rest.

    I’m actually in the market for a juicer and have been reading reviews on Amazon, trying to decide which one to get… I want to incorporate ‘ginger root’, which is ‘hard’ on juicers.. Was great reading about this one, as I’m not familiar with this brand.

    I have tried many juicers, and my biggest complaint is the size. Juicers are HUGE! I love that this one is slim and still effective. I also love that you can put a whole orange in! My current juicer (which needs to be replaced) has a spinning juicing attachment for oranges and lemons which is just another thing to clean.

    My only question is the sound. In my experience juicers are LOUD. How is this one?

    • Susan Bewley March 22, 2014 at 1:29 am - Reply

      The juicer itself is very quiet. It has a bit of a hum to it when it’s working. The closest I have ever seen to it being noisy was with a pineapple that wasn’t ripe enough, and that was still very quiet. I asked my husband’s opinion just to be sure and he said it’s not a nuisance noise, more just like the sound of any machine being on.

    i really like the fact that it squeezes the juices twice and you’re still able to get the nutrients from them!! past juicers have seemed to just take everything with the ‘remains’ and you’re left with some sort of void. easy cleaning is always a plus! because who wants to spend time cleaning lol

    We love fresh juices – I especially ADORE Carrot Juice (and Carrot with Spinach or Kale) I would love to experiment with all kind of fruit and veggy combination.

    I also finally got my Honey/Hubby addicted to (or at least in the habit of drinking a can of LOW SODIUM V-8 Juice – and how much healthier it would be for him to drink BPA-free REALLY fresh juice. I also think the creative act of making juice yourself makes it all the more enjoyable (and habit forming!)

    The ease of use and cleaning is a big plus too!. Would love to win this genuinely wonderful and thoughtful prize. Thanks!
