About Centrifugal Juice Extractors
The Hamilton Beach Big Mouth Pro is a centrifugal type of juice extractor, which happens to be the most common juicers that you see in stores and on TV. Centrifugal juicers have a shredder disc with sharp blades spinning at high speed. The blades grind and grate the fruits and vegetables into tiny pieces.
The spinning motion pushes the juice through a fine-mesh sieve that separates the juice from the pulp. The extracted juice flows through a spout in the front of the machine.
Centrifugal juice extractors are usually cheaper than other types of juicers. They extract juice very quickly especially if it has a wide chute where you can add whole fruits and vegetables. Centrifugal juicers are usually hard to clean and not ideal for juicing leafy vegetables.
Easy to Use Juice Extractor
The Hamilton Beach 67650 Big Mouth Pro Juice Extractor is powerful, fast, and easy to use. True to its name, it has an extra wide 3-inch chute where you can feed whole foods such as apples, oranges, pears, carrots, and tomatoes. The Big Mouth Pro can also juice celery, melons, cucumbers and a lot more. The powerful motor extracts juice quickly from all types of fruits and vegetables.
The Big Mouth Pro comes with a plastic cylindrical food pusher that is used to push food down the chute while juicing. A 20-ounce juice cup is provided to catch the juice pouring out of the spout. The separated pulp accumulates in the pulp bin. A scrub brush is also included for easy cleaning of the strainer.
Some fruits and vegetables should be peeled prior to juicing, such as melons and oranges. Fruits with large seeds should be pitted first. The collected pulp can be used to thicken soups or turned into garden compost.
The Hamilton Beach 67650 juice extractor is easy to assemble and disassemble. The removable plastic parts are dishwasher safe, and the included scrub brush is a handy tool for cleaning the stainless steel strainer basket.
Although the Big Mouth Pro has a plastic housing, the juicer looks very modern and stylish. The plastic housing is black with chrome trim, and does a good job of hiding stains.

Hamilton Beach Big Mouth Pro Review
The Big Mouth Pro juices very fast and is easy to clean. It is also inexpensive. However, it is not cheap to operate because you often waste a lot of juice in the pulp. There are certain fruits that are not ideal for juicing in the Big Mouth Pro.
Fruits and vegetables such as apples, carrots, celery, and watermelon work well with the juicer, but oranges and pineapples come out bitter unless you peel them first.
Bananas come out too much like puree when juiced in the Big Mouth.
Problems encountered when juicing certain fruits and vegetables are not necessarily the fault of this particular model. There are certain types of fruits and vegetables that do not work well with centrifugal juicers. Leafy green vegetables, for example, should be juiced using a masticating juicer that grinds the produce and squeezes out the juice.
When using the Hamilton Beach Big Mouth Pro juice extractor, use only those fruits and vegetables that you know are easily juiced by a centrifugal juicer.
What Customers Say
There are several hundred reviews for the Hamilton Beach 67650 Big Mouth Pro juice extractor and many of them are very positive. Customers find the price very affordable and they couldn’t be happier with the juicer’s overall performance. Many reviewers say the motor is very powerful and can easily juice harder fruits and vegetables such as apples and carrots.
A number of reviewers found that the pulp after extraction tended to be wet, meaning the juice is not completely extracted. The machine is also loud, which is only to be expected in a centrifugal juicer.
A few customers also had some durability issues. As noted by some reviewers, the Big Mouth Pro is not a heavy duty machine, although it is reasonably durable.
Overall, the Hamilton Beach Big Mouth Pro juice extractor has its pros and cons. As a centrifugal juicer it is loud and does not work well with leafy green vegetables, although it is excellent for certain fruits and vegetables such as apples, cucumbers, and carrots. It is an affordable choice for people who want to get started with juices and juice diets but do not want to spend a lot of money.
