Tribest Solostar-II Juice Extractor SS-9002
SoloStar-II is the new and improved model of the SoloStar line of single-auger juicers. SoloStar-II features improved auger design and advanced filtering technology that has raised the bar for home juicers. It's the only juicer that features 2nd Generation Dual-Stage Juice Extraction - resulting in unsurpassed efficiency and versatility from a single-auger juicer. That means you get more delicious juice from a wider variety of fruits, vegetables, and grasses than ever possible from a single-auger juicer. Plus its gentle low-rpm juicing process delivers even more of the essential nutrition from every last drop of juice.
SoloStar-II has shown dramatic improvements in performance over the original SoloStar. The original SoloStar was the first juicer to employ dual-stage juice extraction, which resulted in higher yields for single-auger juicers. Dual-stage juice extraction uses a two-step process to extract more juice from produce. In the initial crushing phase, juice is extracted before it can be reabsorbed into the pulp. In the second stage, the pulp is squeezed again to obtain the remaining juice. Although the original SoloStar showed dramatic improvements in performance over ordinary single-auger juicers, its performance with certain types of produce was limited.
The performance of Tribest's dual-stage juice extraction process has not gone unnoticed. The SoloStar's reputation as the finest single-auger juicer available has led to competing models that have imitated Tribest's designs. In fact, new models introduced by Tribest's competitors feature the same dual-stage juice extraction process found in the original SoloStar.
However, in response to Tribest's customers' desires (and in an effort to offer the latest juicing technology available) Tribest's researchers and engineers have developed the 2nd Generation Dual-Stage Juice Extraction process that makes the SoloStar-II the most versatile and most efficient single-auger juicer available. SoloStar-II is the only juicer to feature this new technology and its juice yield and versatility set it apart in a class of its own.
Tribest continues to win recognition around the world. At the 2009 Canadian Health Food Association's Expo, Green Star was awarded the Gold in the Healthy Home and Equipment Category of the Alive Awards of Excellence. In 2007, Tribest swept the appliances category by receiving all three awards - Gold for Green Star, Silver for Personal Blender, and Bronze for Soyabella. Tribest also swept the equipment category in 2005.
The Alive Awards of Excellence were created fourteen years ago to promote and recognize excellence in product innovation, and to add credibility to natural health products. Manufacturers and suppliers were invited to enter products into 18 corresponding categories, accompanied by third-party analysis and organic certification. Retail members of the CHFA cast their votes for the best products in each category based on quality, consumer popularity, and consumer appeal.
