Short Lived – Provita Review by Dan
Dan in his Provita review says that the juicer was a good deal from the Today Show’s Deals and Steals segment for the month. For the initial phase of use Provita worked very well when it came to chopping up the veggies and fruits. It additionally juiced the food items very well. But the major issue started just after a month where Provita simply stopped working and all it does is generate a humming sound. Even after reassembling the whole system it did not work and had some burned out smell that may be of the motor. The issue was of the motor that went out so early even after using it only for 4 times a week.
Cracked Container, Non-helpful Customer Service
Shelly who tried the Provita Juicer says in her review that it stopped working right after the first month. Though it did work very well and juiced the fruits and veggies deliciously it is useless if it stops working so soon. There was a crack that formed on the strainer portion of the machine and the juice started to form clumps while pulping. In the second month the clumps apparently started to increase and were large enough to obstruct the juicing process. She further informs in her Provita review the customer service itself did not have any idea regarding the issue and asked for a call back after 2 days as they would try to figure out what really the problem is. There has been no solution yet or any response from the customer service helpline.
Stopped Working…no help from the Company – Provita Review by Stephanie
Stephanie McMiller who used the juicer reveals in her Provita review that it is completely a waste of money. It worked only for 2 times in total before breaking apart. The customer service based in India were hardly helpful and instead asked the customer to return Provita for repair at their own expense. It does not look that the company really stands true to its own claims and it was far more disheartening to see such a product get a place in the Today show.
Did not work
Samuel in his Provita review says that the unit that was received did not function at all. Even after assembling it as per the instructions there was not even a sound from it. The customer service was not helpful and even comforted with a false claim that someone would call back for further instructions. No response has been made yet making it a bad investment.
Provita is Loud
According to one customer who used Provita has complained that it was very loud while juicing and takes a lot of time too. In comparison to the Nutri Bullet it is very difficult to use.
Just more Pulp
One customer who reviewed Provita complains that the juicer worked amazingly well only for a month. The juice gradually was more pulpy to the point that it completely stopped juicing. The strainer also started developing a crack. The customer service claimed that there was no such issue faced before and would get back but never returned a call.
Hyslop in his review reveals that it is very difficult to work with it as it is completely inefficient in making a glass of juice without cleaning it for many times. It is more of a scam as there has been no response from the so called reputed show for the complain placed.
According to one customer who used Provita has complained in his Provita review that it was worthless to purchase it. The manual apparently is just 6 pages long with 12 pictures in total where it was revealed that the ingredients need to be finely chopped to fit it inside the tiny hopper of Provita. Even after cleaning the whole system for many times it did not start extracting the juice. The manual was pointless here as it did not have any answer to the problem been faced. There was no online help available regarding the issue of malfunctioning where it stopped pulping and kept spitting food items out while overflowing the strainer. The solution was actually a rubber stopper at the bottom of the bowl that is screwed on and needs to be unplugged in order to begin the process which was difficult to figure out. Surprisingly this important process was not even written down in the manual. Though if one does not press the R (reverse) button it does not work and is a task when it comes to cleaning up. The surprising part about Provita was that it was even featured on the Today Show.
What is Provita Juicer and How does it work?
Juices are a very important part of nutrition in a fast -paced life and you’d know that purchasing canned juices is not really a healthy option. The best way to get fresh juice is to make it yourself using a juicer. Conventional centrifugal juicers are good but relatively kill the major parts of nutrition in a fruit or leafy vegetable and hence cold press or slow juicers are a better option. One such option is Provita Juicer as it claims to provide the best of both viz. goodness of a slow juicer and the price of centrifugal juicer.
Features of Provita Juicer
Provita Juicer has a hand press system which has no hazard of fast spinning blades, which is common in conventional juicers. Instead, Provita Juicer adopts the chewing or mastication process of the human system to bring the best nutrient rich juice out from every fruit and vegetable. Also the Provita Juicer system promises to juice out fruits, vegetables, leafy greens and nuts or soy beans to make almond or soy milk right at home. This claim of Provita Juicer is mainly featured due to its single screw crush design that compresses and squeezer out any juice in no time.
Benefits of Provita Juicer
Provita Juicer is said to be beneficial firstly because of the cold press technology that it is designed upon. According to the makers of Provita Juicer the juicing technology creates up to 40% more juice than any other conventional juicer system and churns out less wasted pulp. The low friction makes 60% more nutrients to stay in the juice than get wasted. Plus Provita Juicer doesn’t sport any blade which reduces the oxidation and foaming of juices. This makes the juice last longer maybe up to 72 hours. Plus it is supposed to be simple to wash and is dishwasher safe.

As the emphasis on healthy living grows, people are making sure they add fresh juices into their daily diet. That’s the reason juicers have become indispensable in kitchens today. But the problem with regular juicers is that they work with a force and at high speed, which separates juice from the pulp. It leads to loss of essential nutrients from fresh fruits and vegetables, which is something you want to try and avoid. That’s where Provita Slow Juicer come into the picture and offer the health conscious a major advantage.
Provita Slow Juicer, as the name suggests, work at slow speeds and gently squeeze the juice out of fruits and vegetables. That’s because during the juicing process there is hardly any friction or heat involved. And thus you can have a fresh glass of juice without losing out on healthy nutrients.
Another major advantage of using Provita Juicer is that there is no separation or oxidation. As a result you will be able to save the juice in the refrigerator for about 48 hours. This makes practical sense for many who are hard pressed for time. You will also be pleased to notice that the pulp that is left behind after juicing is a lot drier, which means you are getting a much higher yield of juice.
Since the processing speed is a lot slower, these juicers are less noisy. And they end up consuming less energy as well. These juicers are quite versatile and effective when it comes to juicing fruits and leafy greens alike. You can use them to juice anything from kale to wheatgrass and spinach. They can also be used to make nut butter, soy milk, soups, pasta, baby food and ice creams.
