A favourite with raw food enthusiasts, the Green Star GS 3000 is the most popular twin-gear juicer on the market. The Green Star GS 3000 uses twin gears to crush produce, and expel the highest quality juice richer in taste, and deeper in colour than all other juicers. The only juicer you will ever need, the GreenStar juices hard roots (carrots, ginger) to fibrous stalks (celery, rhubarb) to even the toughest leafy greens especially kale & wheatgrass. No other juicer is better at unleashing every drop of nutrition from fresh produce, whilst retaining the enzymes and vitamins to boost your health.
The GS 3000 is the upgrade of the GS1000. It is the same model but upgraded to include a Coarse Screen, Strainer, Drip Tray,rice cake guide, and the pasta attachment.
The Green Star uses twin gears to crush the produce and expel the juice. These twin gears are made of Stainless Steel with plastic ends and are patented as they contain magnets and bioceramic materials in them. These magnets and bioceramic materials are said to extract higher levels of minerals out of the produce and also give fresher juice that's enzymes and vitamins have a longer shelf life.
The twin gears operate at a very low speed (110 RPM) when compared to many other juicers which helps to considerably slow down the oxidation of nutrients. There is also virtually no or very little heat transfer thus helping in retaining enzyme content. Indeed the technology of the Green Star twin gears enables carrot juice to be stored for up to 2 days in the fridge without significant loss of nutritional value.

Excellent juicer, however does not really like softer fruits. I'm pretty sure this thing would get some liquid out of a news paper. That being said its not the quickest or easiest to clean but if you know what your doing it takes less than 5 minutes. Once again the juice yield is fantastic.
