I also wrote about this juicer over here.
So far I’m like the Z-Star Manual Wheatgrass Juicer very much.
It’s manual so I don’t use any electricity at all, a big plus for all you green, sustainable living folks.
But, it’s very easy to use and the hand crank works very smoothly.
I was able to easily juice wheatgrass, oranges, celery, cucumbers and watermelon. Though, it was a bit tougher to juice the harder types of fruits and veggies, like carrots and watermelon rinds. But, it can be done.

My Reasons For Buying A Manual Juicer
- Well, the rationale was that I wouldn’t have to use electricity, using my own physical energy to churn out some wheatgrass juice and other types of juices. Thus, saving a bit on my electrical bill by doing the work myself, knowing that daily use of an electric juicer can add up.
- Another reason for going manual was to save money, obviously. Because buying an electric version would cost maybe 2-3 times more.
- And last but not least, a manual juicer can be taken anywhere, even to places where there is no available electricity! I could even take this on camping trips.

Out of the box, the Z-Star Manual Wheatgrass Juicer was very easy to install. There is a booklet on how to assemble and take apart the juicer, but the parts logically fit together nicely, it was easy to assemble this juicer without reading the manual.
Also, cleaning this juicer is so much easier than my two centrifugal electric juicers, which are also very noisy (must consider the noise pollution when it comes to juicers too! With the centrifugal juicers, somehow cleaning was really a chore, it almost made it not worth juicing. This manual juicers is quite easy to clean and it comes with a large cleaning brush.
All in all, I give this product 4.5 stars.
