L'EQUIP "Mini" XL Pulp Ejector Juicer Model #215
Posted by Dr. Ben Kim on Jun 10, 2008
One of the best things that you can do to support your health is to regularly drink freshly pressed vegetable juices. Freshly pressed vegetable juices are rich in naturally occurring vitamins, minerals, enzymes, complex carbohydrates, and water. Most importantly, the nutrients in freshly pressed vegetable juices are easily absorbed into your bloodstream.
In my experience, the greatest obstacle to drinking freshly pressed vegetable juices on a daily basis is the time that it takes to juice. And the most time-intensive part of juicing is cleaning the juicer after each use.
For years, my wife and I have used a champion juicer to make freshly pressed vegetable and vegetable/fruit combo juices. Our champion juicer continues to serve us well, and I recommend it without reservation.
If the champion juicer is too heavy or not within your budget, an excellent alternative is the L'Equip XL Juicer. Like the Jack Lalane and Breville juicers, the L'Equip XL Juicer has an extra wide feed chute, wide enough to juice whole apples - this feature saves a great deal of prep time, as most vegetables and fruits don't need to be chopped into smaller pieces to get them through this machine.
Here are the key features of the L'Equip XL Juicer that makes it my number one choice of wide feed chute juicers:
Three-inch large mouth feed chute
Eliminates clogging problems by pushing the pulp upward and dropping it through the rear of the juicer
The bowl, blade, and basket are fully constructed of high quality stainless steel
Comes with a six year guarantee
Has a compact design that includes a powerful motor
Is easy to clean and dishwasher safe (top shelf)
Compared to other centrifugal juicers, the L'Equip XL Juicer does a great job of extracting nutrients out of fresh vegetables and fruits
This high quality machine is made in Korea
If you look around at the different centrifugal juicers that L'Equip manufacturers, be sure to look for the XL Juicer, model 215, as this is the L'Equip model that has the widest feed chute.
Here are the key specifications for the L'Equip "Mini" XL Pulp Ejector Juicer Model #215:
- Voltage 120 volts 60 Hz
- Wattage 900 watts
- 14.5" high, 7.5" wide, 12" deep
- 3-foot power cord with grounded plug
- Underwriters Laboratories (UL) approved

- Super easy to clean
- Six year guarantee
- Stainless steel bowl, blade, and basket

The very first juicer I ever purchased was the Juiceman - I got it at a Sam's Club in Anchorage when I worked in Barrow, Alaska. The only major problem that I had with the Juiceman was that I would usually have to stop halfway through my juicing to unclog the juicing basket, as the pulp would slow things down and the machine would start to overheat. Because of this experience, the first thing I noticed about the L'Equip XL Juicer is that it continuously pushes the pulp upward and backward so that clogging is never an issue - it's quite the clever feature.
My wife actually prefers the L'Equip XL Juicer over the champion juicer because it takes up very little room on our kitchen counter.
Ultimately, I'd say that the L'Equip XL Juicer is an excellent choice for most families, although I don't have the same long track record with it as I do with the champion.
