Ceado ES-700 juicer video review + FAQ

Ever since we introduced the Ceado line of commercial juicers, we have been getting inquiries left and right about their performance. We decided to test the largest of the two centrifugal Ceado juicers, the ES-700, and the results are in! The Ceado line of juicers is extremely powerful and a great investment for any juice bar or restaurant. By popular demand, here are the most asked questions about the Ceado ES-700 and the Ceado ES-500. If any question was missed, please contact us and we will get back to you right away!

What are the major differences between the Ceado ES-700 and the ES-500

The ES-700 is larger than the ES-500 and its meant for large to medium business operations that consume over 20 lbs of produce a day. The ES-500 is meant for personal use and for small business operations that consume up to 20 lbs of produce a day. The Ceado ES-700 comes with 2 chutes whereas the Ceado ES-500 only comes with 1 chute.

Can I use the ES700 and ES-500 in my restaurant or juice bar?

The ES-700 and the ES-500 are both NSF certified so they meet the qualifications to be used in a commercial establishment.

Is it difficult to assemble the juicers?

The ES-700 and the ES-500 are extremely easy to assemble and disassemble. Assembly is done in minutes and no extra tools are required. Watch our video below to see it done 🙂

How hard is it to clean the juicers?

Both the ES-700 and ES-500 are dishwasher safe! The only item that is not is the pulp basket. If you wish to clean the juicers by hand this can be done as well. A soft brush is best used on the basket and a soft sponge on the rest of the components. We recommend that you line the pulp basket with a biodegradable plastic bag prior to juicing for faster cleaning. However, if you decide to go without a biodegradable plastic bag, you can clean the pulp basket by rinsing it out with cool water. Do not use hot water since it will warp the basket.

Are the juicers very loud?

Not at all! These juicers are extremely quiet for being both centrifugal and commercial grade.  It will not sound like a rocket ship is going off at your restaurant or juice bar so you will not need to wear ear plugs when juicing 🙂

How stable are the juicers?

Both juicers are extremely stable. There’s no shaking involved.

I don’t have a commercial establishment. Can I still get a Ceado juicer?

Yes! The Ceado ES-500 is commercial grade, but it’s compact enough to fit on any countertop, making it perfect for personal use. The ES-500 is ideal for juicing aficionados or for very large families who consume more juice that the average household.

What is the warranty?

Both juicers come with a 1 year on parts and 1 year on labor warranty

Where can I see the Ceado in action?

Please see our video review of the ES-700 below and don’t hesitate to let us know if you have any feedback

Happy Juicing!!!

Why You Need Cashew Cheese (and easy, unsoaked cashew cheese recipe)

Contrary to popular belief, being Plant Based or Vegan doesn’t mean that you miss out on all the cheesy recipes that non-vegans eat. There are tons of dairy free options at grocery stores. Most are loaded with unhealthy preservatives and ingredients that I cannot even pronounce. Nut cheese, when made with plant-based ingredients, is not only delicious, but healthier than its casein counterpart. It’s also extremely easy to whip up so there’s no need to buy it at the store.

Why Cashew Cheese is Healthy

Aside from being super delicious, plant-based cashew cheese is rich with Vitamin B, Calcium, Protein and Fiber. It has more vitamins and minerals than dairy. Unlike animal cheese, it does not have saturated fats which increase cholesterol and your risk of heart disease and stroke.

How cashew cheese helps with weight loss

Since cashews are high in protein and healthy fat, cashew cheese will help you stay full longer and reduce cravings. You can use the cheese to make all kinds of recipes for pizza, pasta sauce, dressings and dips. It will instantly make any bland recipe delicious and nutritious, which makes it easy to continue eating healthy.

To Soak or Not to Soak

If you have time, it’s best to soak the cashews. This will make them soft and the creamy consistency be easily achievable. When cashes are soaked, the enzymes are neutralized so our bodies digest them better. All you have to do is get raw, unsalted cashews, put them in a container and fill the container up with water. Wait at least 2 hours or simply do it the night before and TADA! It really is that simple! If you are in a pinch, you can simply use raw unsalted cashews.  I’ve done this before and used my Kuvings Power Blender to grind them up. The consistency was creamy and buttery in minutes. *Note that high speed blenders are the best tools to use to achieve creaminess.

Kuvings EVO820 Juicer Review and Buyers Guide

Is the Kuvings EVO820 Worth the Money? Review and Buyers Guide

The Kuvings EVO820 is the newest juicer from Kuvings and an improved version of the popular Kuvings C7000. The EVO820 keeps all of the popular features that juicers fans love and has many improvements over the C7000. The EVO820 has a larger feed chute, sturdier juicing bowl, and a more streamlined design than the C7000. It is also extremely versatile and can handle everything from healthy juices to delicious sorbets. Let’s go through the upgrades on the EVO820

Kuvings EVO820 Overview

The Kuvings EVO820 is a masticating juicer that spins at an easy 60 rpm. The low speeds ensure that your juice will come out with all of it’s nutrients and enzymes intact. High-speed juicers generate a lot of heat that breaks down nutrients in your juice. Additionally, high speed juicers introduce a lot of oxygen into your juice that causes them to go bad very quickly. Some juices start to turn brown within 10-15 minutes of leaving a centrifugal juicer. Juices produced in your EVO820 cold press juicer will last for 2-3 days so you can prepare your juices in advance. This is extremely helpful if you work long hours or spend every day on the go.
