People often ask us, "Why aren't juicer feeding tubes wider?" The answer is safety regulations. By law, juicers can only have narrow feeding tubes, to keep small children from reaching in the juicer. So one of the challenges of juicing is cutting produce into pieces small enough to fit into the feeding tube. The Sana 868 solves this with a patented trap door system which prevents any curious hands from reaching into the juicer, while still being wide enough to fit large pieces of whole fruit and vegetables. Now you can fit big chunks of carrots, large handfuls of leafy greens, even whole apples. Integrated into the trap door is a circular feeding hole for direct feeding of celery stalks, smaller carrots. and other narrow produce.
Of course, a wide feeding tube isn't useful if the juicer gets jammed by those large pieces of produce. That's why we put our highest-watt motor in the Sana 868. With 240 watts, it has the muscle to power through big pieces of carrots, large chunks of pumpkin, even nuts for nut butter. The extra large auger and reinforced juicing chamber matches the motor for toughness and durability, ensuring consistent and smooth juicing every time.
The new juicing chamber is designed for maximum yield and easy cleaning. The powerful motor runs at a gentle 50 rpm, allowing for the most juice to be cold-pressed out of every type of produce. The wide pulp outlet is open on the top for easy cleaning, and a special cleaning brush snaps onto the juicing screen to quickly remove any bits of pulp.
Most vertical juicers include just one or two screens. The Sana 868 includes four screens, making it more than just a juicer:
Fine juicing screen: This is what is used to get the highest juice yield on most fruits and vegetables. Hundreds of micro perforations in a stainless steel screen ensure the optimum amount of pressure for the best juice quality.
Coarse juicing screen: Some softer fruit like pineapple, berries, and soft apples can get clogged in a fine juicing screen. The coarse screen has larger holes for less pressure and smoother juicing of softer fruit.
Smoothie screen: This turns the juicer into a low speed smoothie blender. The screen juices the produce, and then mixes the pulp back into the juice. Blenders operate at up to 20,000 rpm, injecting air and creating foam, separation, and loss of nutrients. The 868 runs at just 50 rpm, creating the most nutritious smoothie you've ever tasted.
Sorbet screen: The Sana 868 becomes a frozen dessert machine with this screen. By using slightly thawed frozen fruit, a wide variety of frozen treats can be made. Make a smooth peach sorbet with frozen peaches. Process berries for a delightful frozen ice. Or make a rich "ice cream" like dessert by mixing frozen bananas with berries, mangos, tropical fruit, and more.
At Sana, we believe a premium juicer should come with premium containers for the juice and pulp. And the Sana 868 continues this tradition:
Juice pitcher: Made from heavy duty tempered borosilicate glass, the Sana 868 juice pitcher has an extra large 1500ml capacity. It's perfect for making large quantites of juice for later consumption, and a healthier alternative to the typical small plastic juice container.
Pulp container: Our high-capacity pulp container is made from 100% stainless steel. Unlike plastic containers which discolor and grow brittle over time, our stainless steel pulp container will always look new. And because it is made from food-grade stainless steel, it is ideal for those who like to use pulp for things like muffins, breads, and crackers.
We extensively tested Sana's new wide-mouth vertical juicer, and were pleased with the results. Wide feeding tubes are great in theory, but we often find this leads to jammed juicers, and the rest of the machine isn't powerful or sturdy enough to handle certain large pieces of produce like beets or carrots. The Sana's 240 watt motor handles these quite well overall. We did manage to jam the machine once with a very fat carrot, but reversing the motor cleared it up fast.
While some manufacturers offer some optional screens, its unheard of to see a juicer include four screens. The two juicing screens - fine and coarse - worked well as expected, as did the sorbet screen. We were most impressed with the smoothie screen. We tested it with a green smoothie - apples, banana, spinach, and lime - and the result was very smooth, without the foam or oxidation we'd get in a blender. Kudos to them for including this as standard.
Of course, no vertical will clean up as easily as a horizontal juicer, except for Sana's screenless 848 vertical. But the 868's clever full-screen cleaning brush which snaps onto the screen helped a lot with cleaning. And we didn't notice excessive pulp buildup under the auger as often happens with many vertical juicers. They even included a handy wrench to remove the hopper from the juicing drum, in case it gets jammed by overfeeding. We never needed to try it, but its nice to see it there.
As always, the juice and pulp containers are a standout. We like to see manufacturers pay attention to this often ocerlooked aspect of juicing, and always look forward to seeing what Sana comes up with next. They included their large stainless steel pulp container, which looks like the one from their flagship 727. And the glass pitcher is the biggest we've seen at 1500ml. Thankfully its plenty thick, and made from borosilicate glass for shatter resistance.
We'd love to see a vacuum container, as the one included with the Sana 848 really makes juicing easier. While we love juicing, we'll always take juicing a lot twice as week (and storing it under a vacuum) versus juicing every day.
Overall, this is a great juicer for a wide range of produce. The smoothie screen is probably our favorite thing about it - it's not a gimmick, and if you like smoothies it can be a game changer.
