Philips HR 1855 Juicer Review + Apple – Melon Juice Infused with Elderflowers

 For this Philips HR 1855 Juicer review, I created a delicious apple-melon juice infused with elderflowers. Here’s my opinion on this juicer!

Suc de pepene galben si mere cu socI won this lovely juicer in a Philips competition and I must say…I was really lucky! I wanted a juicer for a very long time but I never really had he courage to buy one myself as I’ve always heard stories about bad juicers.

Since the day I received it, I am continuously making delicious juices and testing different combinations. I’ve tried beetroot with celeriac (YUM!), apples and carrots and this awesome refreshing juice with melon and apples.

I’m a huge fan of melon so this apples and melon juice is one of my favorite juices so far. It is even better if you add elderflowers juice for some extra ‘fizziness’…oh.. heavenly!

Philips HR 1855 Juicer Review

The design is great. Red is not really my color, but color is not important when it comes to juicers, right?! What I liked most about it is that it is really easy to use. I never follow instructions as they bore me to I figured out on my own how to assemble it. 😀


  • Really easy to clean; not in a minute as it says on the package, you have to be Speedy Gonzales to clean it under a minute, but in 3-4 minutes is cleaned and re-assembled.
  • It’s really good for juicing root vegetables; I must admit I was a bit skeptical at first but it turned out really well! The pulp was dry.
  • You can juice whole apples! even 2-3 at once
  • Juices are ready really fast, under a minute actually!


  • Some juices may get a bit “foamy”. Just remove the foam and the juice is good to drink.
  • Because it’s a centrifugal juicer, the juices oxidate a lot faster. This means you’ll have to drink it immediately or at least in the following 1-2 hours.

storcatoarele sunt depasite si de mana a 2 daca aveai o presa de fructe mai ziceam .storcatoarele folosesc frecarea si sunt la turatii mari.presele au turatii mici si sunt virful de lance al momentului actual.vorbesc in cunostinta de cauza
