Tribest GSE-5000 Review
Performance: Heavy-Duty Twin-Gear Complete Mastication System
Tribest GSE-5000 is a full masticating system that is driven by a powerful gear system, which replicates human teeth action to maximum juice extraction.
To support the achievement of full 3-step mastication, the juicer comes equipped with Tribest’s revolutionary stainless-steel Twin Gears at the helm to deliver performance similar to that of the human teeth.
Here’s how the twin gears replicate teeth action. First, the twin gears design features special pocket recesses that help in slicing hard vegetables such as carrots, just as the incisors do. Second, the cutting points on the gears take over, helping achieve efficient juice extraction similar to how the canines cut string cellulose.
Third, the heart teeth base crushes ingredients as the molars do. Overall, the 3 processes yield smaller pieces for easier juicing and processing. Finally, a mixing stage has been added by the juicer to act on the broken-down produce by interacting with and activating it to increase the juice’s nutritional value.
Speaking of nutritional value, the juicer has also optimized this process using Tribest’s exclusive magnetic and bioceramic technology, which utilizes a focused magnetic field to rearrange water clusters such that it latches onto more vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients.
Oh, and because of the bioceramic technology, you can store your freshly-produced juice long. According to the manufacturer, expect your juice to last for up to 72 hours in the refrigerator with maximum freshness and minimal loss of nutritional value. The technology achieves this by applying a stabilizing effect on the juice, thus delaying oxidation.
To ensure that the twin gears last for long through wear prevention, the GSE-5000 uses a nylon safety buffer. This buffer works by ensuring the 2 gears do not come into contact with each other. The buffer creates a constant separation margin of 4/1000 of an inch during operation.
Finally, you can easily adjust the amount of pulp ejection pressure exerted on the juicer to support the versatility and handling of a wide fruit and vegetable variety without clogging or jamming the unit. With this system, you won’t have to stop juicing and you can maximize the kind of ingredients you use.
Design: Compact and Sleek
The GSE-5000 assumes a modern look, which makes the appliance look really great on your kitchen counter and when it is placed other appliances.
It resides in the premium class of juicers and does a great job of bringing out the elegance. You cannot confuse it for cheaper, less-stylish models. So, if your kitchen’s design and finish are contemporary, then this is the juicer you should go for.
This juicer’s design is also markedly streamlined, which contributes to its overall compactness. It won’t be taking up a lot of counter or storage space.
Another feature that deserves recognition is the newly-redesigned outlet adjusting knob, which now comes with easy-grip ridges that enhance the ease of grasping and manual pressure control in the machine. The enhancement supports quick and versatile juicing of fruits and vegetables.
The appliance also eliminates chances of injury from interaction with the moving parts by its adoption of a safety switch, which is attached to the safety hood. The switch will disable juicer operation when the hood is removed thus preventing injury from accidental contact.
Now, the juicer weighs 17.4 pounds, which is on the higher side considering lightweight models weigh 10 pounds and lower. It can feel weighty, but only if you’re constantly shifting it around the kitchen. You can avoid dealing with its weight by finding a suitable spot for it on the counter and operating it from that spot whenever it's needed.
Loudness: Quieter than Most
You’d think that with GSE-5000’s heavy-duty twin gears, the juicer would be overly loud, but that’s far from the case. It manages to lower noise levels so much that it runs quieter than most light-duty models.
Remember that the entire unit is powered by a 200-watt motor. Because of the low power rating, the entire system manages to run while producing less noise than higher-wattage models.
Obviously, loudness does increase during the actual juice extraction, but it doesn’t get uncomfortably loud.
As a tip to reduce any induced loudness, ensure the juicer’s base is resting on a firm surface that is not wobbly. Also ensure you’re not exerting too much pressure on the cup, which can cause it to vibrate and increase noise output.
Ease of Cleaning: Hassle-free and Fast
Cleaning your Tribest GSE-5000 is a straightforward and time-saving process thanks in part to the juicer’s design and the fact that it comes with an array of handy cleaning tools included.
The juicer’s new sleek design was achieved by combining many parts together, which helps simplify cleaning because there are few components to worry about.
Then there are the juicer’s cleaning tools. Included is a regular GS cleaning brush, and a tool with brush and scrapper heads plus a handle.
You can find some handy cleaning tips for the juicer in this YouTube video by Tribest. The scraper is effective in removing pulp residue from the juicing screen. You can then use the XL cleaning brush to remove any remaining residue from the screen.
And here’s a final handy cleaning tip. You can use the included safety hood as a basket to rest the juicing parts after you have cleaned them. They can dry on the hood without requiring any extra counter space.
Price: Premium, but Reflective of Value
This juicer’s price is nowhere near the budget territory. But it is more than justified by the immense value in terms of performance, efficiency, and versatility that the juicer offers.
For a little less than $500, you get a complete 3-step mastication system that extracts juice as efficiently as the human teeth do. But it's not just the juice extraction alone that is optimized. The magnetic and bioceramic technology comes ion to ensure maximum nutrient extraction and longer life for your fresh juice.
Tribest does offer some competing models, including the professional-grade Greenstar Pro GS-P501-B, which does come with some enhancements, including homogenizing accessories, but costs much more than the GSE-5000. For the price, this one offers a lot of value.
The ultimate juicer for juice-loving individuals and families who prioritize nutrition alongside freshness and yield.
GSE-5000’s heavy-duty twin gear system maximizes yield while the magnetic and bioceramic technology ensures high nutritional content and longer juice life thus supporting your healthy lifestyle for years to come.
