Kuvings EVO 820GM – Detailed Review

Today we have an opportunity to make Kuvings EVO820 Review. Here is what we’ve found out.

Are low-speed juicer manufacturers still able to revolutionize the market and introduce something groundbreaking? Or maybe more awaits us an evolution in which juicers will be more and more refined, more efficient, better? How did the latest Kuvings EVO820 juicer come out? I have seen for several years that we are moving towards the latter option. And nothing bad about it. It reminds me of the car market, where well-known brands such as Audi and BMW focus on better performance, introducing improvements and changes in appearance with the new models. Evolution, not revolution. Today I would like to share my opinion on the latest Kuvings EVO820 review here.

KUVINGS EVO820 – THE LATEST FLAGSHIP MODEL FROM KUVINGS

Kuvings Evolution (also EVO820) is the latest squeezer from the Korean manufacturer, the successor of the wide-opening juicers – Kuvings C9500 and B6000. This is the latest, and also the flagship model of Kuvings for home use (I emphasize for home use because the Kuvings offer also includes the CS600 CHEF model dedicated to gastronomy). The manufacturer defines EVO820 as the most powerful juicer for home use. Is that right? Does the EVO juicer really improve, accelerate, and facilitate juicing?

Until now, I used the C9500 model. Previously I used the B6000 model for a long time. I know the strengths and weaknesses of vertical juicers perfectly and it is easy for me to compare subsequent models in terms of introduced changes.

In this post, I will look at the latest Kuvings juicer, compare it with the C9500 and try to answer the question is it worth choosing EVO820?

THE ALL-NEW KUVINGS EVO820 DESIGN

Let me start with the fact that the manufacturer of¬†Kuvings¬†squeezers¬†introduced another model in parallel with EVO820 – D9900. Model Evolution and D9900 differ primarily in appearance. The D9900 model refers to its predecessor from 2016 – the Kuvings C9500 juicer. They differ in thickness and design of the “chimney” (product inlet) and housing colors. The EVO820 is a completely new machine. From the outside, it doesn’t look much like previous models.

Evolution has a more oval/round shape, it is slightly larger, but therefore more stable when juicing. EVO820 is also made in new colors. The EVO820 body is made entirely of dark plastic. The front of the juicer is decorated with a material resembling a “skin” in white, graphite, red, or champagne. The matt edition of the Evolution line adds charm and gives a more exclusive look.¬†Not surprisingly,¬†the EVO820 is referred to as the “gold” or “premium” series.

What you see outside pleases not only the eye. It also has a very practical dimension.

My Kuvings C9500, which I have used so far, is white and unfortunately, with large amounts of squeezed turmeric, it happened to me that some juice got on the squeezer body … leaving yellow marks very difficult to clean. Anyone who has dealt with fresh turmeric knows how strong the dyes are and how difficult it is to get rid of them. In EVO820 this problem has been eliminated in two ways.

Firstly, by using the dark color of the entire machine housing, and secondly by changing the design of the bottom bowl, which prevents “leakage” of juice on the juicer body. Thanks to these two changes, the risk of persistent spots has dropped to zero in the latest EVO model. When designing the EVO820, the manufacturer included practical handles that were missing in the C9500 and B6000 in the latest model. One handle is on the back of the device, the other on the front. A small thing, but it makes life easier especially if the juicer does not have its permanent place on the kitchen counter and must be moved or moved frequently.

What caught my attention was the larger number of ventilation holes in the EVO820 housing, which is supposed to work even faster (more on this later). This will definitely positively affect the operation of the device.

DOUBLE HOLE FOR FRUIT AND VEGETABLES IN XXL SIZE

Yes, it is even wider than in the previous model! Its diameter is up to 82 mm, so it can easily fit a whole medium-sized apple or orange without the need for cutting or pushing. Kuvings juicer manufacturer was the first in the world to introduce such a solution and remained loyal to it.

kuvings-evo820-double-hole

A large hole in Kuvings encourages us to use large and wide-diameter ingredients. While apple or orange is not a challenge for a juicer, throwing in a large and fibrous beetroot or very thick and hard carrots can be problematic (such ingredients must be cut in half, as mentioned by the manufacturer in the user manual). In the latest model, the manufacturer solved it in an optimal way. The opening at Evolution is double and equipped with a movable flap. You can easily throw large apples, lemons, oranges, etc. into a large hole with a movable flap. The juicer pulls them very efficiently and quickly.

The second hole is used to squeeze very hard, fibrous and long products such as carrots, beets, and celery.

So if you want to add a thicker/oval ingredient like an apple or orange, you open the flap and that’s it. If you insert narrow and longer ingredients, you can do it without opening the flap through the narrow hole in the flap. This double hole also has a double function – it prevents the ingredients from entering the juicer too quickly, which results in an optimal juicing result. It also provides additional security for the youngest users.

DOUBLE REINFORCED CONSTRUCTION

In addition to appearance, this is another change that catches the eye. The new Kuvings Evolution juicer has been doubly strengthened. The bottom juice bowl and top cover have become thicker and more massive. The number of catches connecting the bowl with the lid increased to 4  (in earlier models there were 3 catches). In my opinion, these two changes are most noticeable during juicing and additionally affect the time of juicing. By picking up the lid or bowl you feel the difference right away. These elements are thicker and more massive compared to the C9500 model (and even more the difference is felt by comparing the same elements of supermarket squeezers).

kuvings-evo820-construction

Just feel the very good quality of the materials used in Kuvings Evolution. Thanks to the larger number of catches connecting the bottom bowl with the lid, the EVO820 juicer works very stably even when throwing a thick piece of hard carrot. The previous model C9500 also easily managed such components, but certainly not as smooth as the latest model of the Kuvings juicer. After throwing in a hard thick carrot, the lower bowl in C9500 moved as if it were slightly wavy. The bowl does not move in the new juicer.

IMPROVED PULP DISPOSAL

Another important change in the EVO820 is the modification of the hole from which the pulp comes out while juicing.¬†The hole for ejecting pulp is larger, its upper part has a “notch” and is more open from above.¬†This change will please especially people who often squeeze fibrous products such as green leaves or celery.

kuvings-evo820-pulp

In the earlier model, it happened to me that dry and dense pulp of green ingredients accumulated in this hole, slightly sticking to it. I squeezed spinach, kale, and celery in EVO820 and I must admit that the pulp came out smoothly. This is an important change that is not only noticeable when squeezing, but also when washing equipment. Thanks to the cut, it is much easier to clean the pulp drain hole.

It is worth noting that a larger hole also appeared in the juicer itself, which further contributes to a more efficient and faster operation of the device.

VERY CLEAR JUICE

In my opinion, the previous Kuvings C9500 model was great for juice clarity (compared to B6000 where the particles in the juice were quite noticeable). I have to admit that EVO820 has risen to the challenge and squeezes very clear juice (similar to the one I squeeze in my Angel 8500S twin-screw juicer). A very big plus.

PERFORMANCE, JUICING, AND WORK – A SMALL COMPARISON TEST EVO820 AND C9500

Kuvings C9500 vs EVO820

Is Evolution different in performance? Does the latest EVO820 model squeeze more juice than its predecessor C9500? I have both models so I decided to check it on the same ingredients.

For this experiment, in both cases, I used exactly 1.5 kg of ingredients (carrot, grapefruit, and beet). For the test to be reliable, weighed every ingredient (i.e. every carrot or beetroot) and divided it evenly in half, so that there was no doubt that any of the ingredients were more or less juicy. Who won the duel?

PERFORMANCE AND CLARITY OF THE JUICE

The amount of juice was slightly higher in EVO, but that’s a small difference.¬†I poured the juices prepared in both juicers through a thick sieve to assess the amount of pulp in the juice.¬†In both cases, it looked very similar. Clear juice with almost no pulp.¬†Evolution does all the work faster.¬†However, this is too small an attempt to assess it and I will certainly carry out a few more tests taking into account the more demanding product, i.e. greens.

update on 21.08.08. After a few months of using EVO820, I can say that EVO generally performs better with some components than C9500. While in the case of juice from ingredients such as carrots, apples or beetroot juice looks similar, in the case of greens you can already feel the difference. EVO has a visible advantage here. It is much better at dealing with fibrous leaves like kale or parsley than older models. The pulp is extracted from EVO much more efficiently than in the case of the C9500, which makes the juicer squeeze the green juice easily.

WORKING SPEED AND VOLUME OF THE DEVICE

The juices in both juicers were prepared in parallel to assess the working culture of both devices and the juicing time. It turned out that the EVO820 managed to squeeze the juice faster and worked much quieter.

Looking at the work of both juicers, it can be said that EVO squeezes juice more easily, the device worked very stably, without effort.¬†In C9500 you could notice how the bottom bowl “works” when squeezing a thicker piece of carrot or beetroot.

What surprised me very much when washing both juicers was the fact that there was no pulp in the EVO snail. This confirms the effectiveness of the improvements introduced by the manufacturer, thanks to which the latest juicer gets rid of pulp outside with greater ease.

I could sum up my little experiment briefly.

The user manual is here: Kuvings EVO820GM User Manual Download

Compared to the C9500, the new EVO820 juicer is slightly faster, quieter, and most importantly, it is much easier to handle hard and fibrous ingredients.

CLEANING THE KUVINGS EVO820 JUICER

Washing all Evolution juicer components takes a similar amount of time as with the C9500. At least this is the case in my case, but I have great skills and developed ways for quick cleaning. Just a few minutes.

For less experienced people, EVO should be slightly easier to clean due to the better-designed hole for the pulp, which in earlier models took a little more time. Certainly, the new brush makes cleaning easier, which allows easier access to the center of the juice drain.

In the Evolution model, the manufacturer added the option of unscrewing the bottom part in the bowl, which allows for more thorough cleaning and drying, which was not in previous models.¬†I haven’t used this option yet, I don’t think I need it yet.

ADDITIONAL ACCESSORIES

The Kuvings EVO820 juicer comes complete with 3 brushes (only 2 were included with earlier models). The new brush resembles a bottle brush. It is useful for cleaning the drain in the bottom bowl from which juice flows. This definitely facilitates thorough cleaning.

A new tool is also a key that has been attached to facilitate opening the top cover. Personally, I do not use it, because the lid can be unscrewed very easily, but for people starting the adventure with a wide-inlet juicer, it can be at the beginning easier.

POWERFUL 240W MOTOR 

The Evolution juicer engine, just like in previous models and in Kuvings D9900 is one of the most powerful on the market. Kuvings alone manufactures engines and parts for its equipment in Korea, which few manufacturers can boast of.

Most squeezers offered on the market are “assembled” from parts made in China, often in various factories.¬†Perhaps that is why¬†Kuvings offers up to 10 years warranty for the entire device.

MINUSES?

There are really few. Kuvings listen to its customers and makes necessary improvements with each new model. At the beginning of the EVO adventure, the downside seemed to be a changed inlet for ingredients with a double hole. I was used to throwing all ingredients into the same hole. In EVO, inserting ingredients into two different holes requires a switch, but this is not a problem. I also noticed that when closing the top cover you need to use a little more force than on the C9500 to close it.

Perhaps this is due to the manufacturer’s use of more massive parts. Of course, this is only my subjective feeling resulting from getting used to the previous model ūüôā If you haven’t used Kuvings before, you probably won’t feel this change. Assembling this juicer takes only 20 seconds, which you can see in the film. This is the fifth generation of Kuvings juicers and it’s hard to find major minuses.

IS IT WORTH BUYING THE LATEST KUVINGS EVOLUTION JUICER?

After squeezing out several dozen liters of juice in EVO820 I can summarize this post briefly. EVO820 is much stronger, faster, more efficient, and quieter than its predecessors, but also than most low-speed juicers on the market. The all-new Kuvings Evolution look is also a big plus. Are these changes revolutionary? This is certainly not a revolution but an evolution, as the model name suggests. Kuvings EVO820 is certainly a highly refined version of the very successful C9500.

WHO IS KUVINGS EVO820 FOR?

If you want to squeeze healthy juices regularly at home for yourself or the whole family and you care about the highest quality juice, the EVO model is a very good investment. In my opinion, it is the fastest and most powerful low-speed juicer with a very large inlet on the market, in which you can easily squeeze juice from hard and fibrous ingredients. It is with these low-speed juicers that have the most problem and Kuvings certainly stands out here.

What is worth emphasizing and what distinguishes Kuvingsa EVO from most juicers is the speed in preparing the juice from the most demanding ingredients and efficient washing. And this is a guarantee that you will be happy and often use your juicer.
