I Thought All Juicers Were Large, Loud, and Impossible to Clean—Until I Tried This One
My go-to blender now lives on the back shelf.

Up until several months ago, I had intentionally avoided juicers. While my aging NutriBullet was extremely loud, it functioned just fine for fruit- and veggie-based drinks. I didn’t really see a reason to acquire yet another appliance that I assumed would (a) be a pain to clean and (b) take up more of my already sparse countertop space. However, after a winter of sickness, a friend not-so-subtly shared an immunity-boosting recipe made with just a few ingredients—but there was a hitch: It called for the tool I didn’t want to acquire. That is, until I got a chance to test the Hurom H310 Easy Clean Slow Juicer.
For starters, it isn’t a noisy, bulky eyesore like my beloved bullet-shaped device and other juicers I’ve witnessed in action. So far I’ve used it for the past two months and no matter how hard I’ve tried to convince myself otherwise, I actually prefer it. Read on for my review of the Hurom H310—how the assembly process went, how well it functions with all types of produce, my experience with cleaning it—and why I recommend it.
The Hurom H310 Easy Clean Slow Juicer
The Petite Design
At just 8 pounds and 4 inches round, the Hurom H310 is lightweight enough to lift and move around with ease. Its slim profile keeps it from competing for space with other countertop appliances, my go-to cookware, and my fancy dish rack. The look is clean and simple, and I really like the modern color options of white, matte black, lavender, and oat, the smooth light brown I opted for. The translucent black chamber and self-feeding hopper stack neatly, and the lone operating button is the same color as the juicer body, which adds to its streamlined silhouette. And, like all other Hurom products, the H310 is BPA-free.
The Easy Assembly
The H310 comes in a sturdy, recyclable cardboard box with a handle, which I can easily see repurposing for storing memorabilia, Christmas lights, cords, and other miscellaneous items. Three smaller labeled boxes with illustrations contain the body, the chamber set, the cup, cleaning brush, and power cord, so identifying the components is supereasy. There’s also a manual and recipe book. Assembling the product is a pretty intuitive process, even for someone (me) who loathes putting things together, and the company’s FAQ section walks you through each step if you get confused. This also comes in handy when it’s time to clean the juicer, but more on that later.
The H310 took about 15 minutes to set up: I removed all the components from the box, stacked the chamber set on top of the body, twisted it until it locked into place, attached the power cord, and it was ready for use.
The Near-Silent Juicing
If you’re a late-night kitchen loiterer like myself who regularly winds down with a treat, the Hurom will allow you to do so without waking up the whole house. My first concoction included strawberries, watermelon, ginger, and a bunch of supercrunchy baby carrots, and I was honestly shocked at how quietly it ran. This particular recipe produced approximately 5 ounces of liquid in under 20 seconds. Even when I dropped a whole apple in the chamber, the results were the same (although it took closer to 45 seconds to completely break down). It slowly but thoroughly transforms celery, pineapple, cucumbers, and other dense fruits and vegetables like broccoli, squash, and zucchini into liquid and pulp without producing any loud crackling.
When the juicing is complete, I simply dispose of the pulp, which empties out of the chamber into a cup, then release the stopper to collect the juice and enjoy a pulp-free drink. After an average of two to three juicing sessions per week over the past couple of months, I haven’t had any challenges with the process, and the H310 continues to operate efficiently and quietly.
The Cleaning Process
It’s necessary to completely disassemble the H310 to clean it, but the entire process takes just 10 minutes. While the juicer comes with a cleaning brush, I haven’t needed to use it. A quick yet thorough rinse gets the job done, and I have yet to notice any staining on the light-colored body.
The Final Word
A juicer that’s small, quiet, nice-looking, and easy to use? Talk about a unicorn. I enjoy using Hurom’s H310 and showing it off. Even when my countertops get a bit messy, the slender build doesn’t get in the way—and if I need to move it or clean near it, I can slide it or pick it up without a struggle. Consider me a convert.
