SEATTLE, March 4, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- At the spry young age of 87 years, famed health guru Jay Kordich has been singing the praises of juicing for quite some time. But, never before in his 62 years in the business has Jay actually put his name on the side of a juicer.
That all changes today as the Father of Juicing launches the Jay Kordich PowerGrind Pro, a machine so unique Kordich promises it will revolutionize the juicing industry. Indeed, the Jay Kordich PowerGrind Pro boasts six international patents and features new hybrid technology that delivers more juice and nutrients than other juicers.
It is available exclusively through jaykordich.com.
"For the first time in 62 years, I can honestly say this is the BEST juicer I have ever helped design," said Kordich. "Its futuristic, hybrid technology is the key. My PowerGrind Pro uses both extracting and grinding, giving you the best of both types of juicers. This equals the easiest juicer to use, the easiest juicer to clean, and the best tasting juice you will ever experience."
Conventional juice extractors operate at a high speed that creates heat, damaging the precious nutrients in fruits and vegetables. But, the Jay Kordich PowerGrind Pro's use of slow grinding coupled with extraction creates less heat to better preserve nutrients. The juicer's new technology means users not only get more nutrients per cup of juice, but also a bigger volume of juice from the same amount of produce.
The Jay Kordich PowerGrind Pro has a sleek, compact design that fits on a counter-top, yet is a well-built, heavy duty machine with a surgical quality stainless steel blade, a patented double feed chute, and an extra large detachable pulp basket. It features a powerful yet surprisingly quiet induction motor that can juice anything, even leafy greens, without bogging down. The motor comes with a lifetime guarantee, and there is a 5-year factory warranty for all other parts.
The Jay Kordich PowerGrind Pro retails for $289, and has an optional blender attachment ($49.95) that Linda Kordich, Jay's wife and longtime partner in juicing, says is perfect "for fruits that cannot be juiced, and for super green smoothies. The PowerGrind Pro also makes deliciously rich and nutritious nut milks! "
Jay adds that his new juicer is both easy to use and to clean, with dishwasher safe parts.
Author of the #1 New York Times best seller, "The Power of Juicing", many remember Kordich as the wildly energetic, over-the-top spokesman whose successful TV campaign in the early 90s brought the health benefits of drinking freshly extracted juices to the masses. Kordich has spent over 50 years teaching and inspiring others and now, at an age when others are headed into nursing homes or no longer living, a still lively Kordich is getting back out there to share his secrets for staying active and vital.
"I came out of retirement to bring this juicer to the world," said Kordich. "Plants are the sustenance of life to keep you healthy. If you want to have lots of stamina and endurance like me, if you want to be free of disease and sickness, the key is to juice and eat fresh, living foods."
