The Tribest GSE-5000 Green Star Jumbo Twin Gear Juicer
Greenstar machines are reputably one of the world's best juice extractors and most efficient food processors. Using Exclusive Jumbo Twin Gear technology with a low 110 rpm, ease of use and simple clean up, our Greenstar Juice Extractors and Food Processors are award-winning machines of unsurpassed quality. Independent laboratory tests confirm that the Greenstar's Twin Gear Press extracts a substantially higher quantity of minerals than 'leading' juicers. Concentrations of essential minerals, like calcium, iron, and zinc are 50%-200% higher in juice from the Greenstar than from other name brands juicers. Now, your commitment to drinking raw juice can really begin to pay off!
What's in the Box
Equipped with four different screens to accompany your juice and food adventure, the Greenstar Elite is the most versatile machine. It includes the fine screen to extract juice with minimal pulp; the coarse screen to extract juice with more pulp mixed in; the homogenizing blank for basic food processing; the breadstick (mochi) maker set to make delicious raw breadsticks and rice cakes. Optionally, you can purchase the pasta maker set to instantly convert your Greenstar into a pasta press and soft fruit outlet adjusting knob for efficiently juicing soft fruits such as orange and tomato. All Greenstar models also conveniently include a glass juice pitcher, wooden plunger, plastic plunger, and cleaning brush.
What’s the Difference between Mastication & Complete Mastication?
There are many juicers that claim to be masticating juicers, and to a certain extent, what they claim is true. Most of these “masticating” juicers — single-auger, horizontal, or vertical — employ an auger or a dual gear system that works to crush produce and press the juice out. These so called “masticating” juicers are missing crucial steps in their juicing process and fall short of being a complete mastication system. Comparing these features to the human mastication system, such incomplete masticating juicers only utilize the molar (crushing) function and lack the incisor (slicing) and canine function (cutting function. Juicing with these kinds of juicers would be comparable to chewing only with your molars, or even just your gums. For this reason, Tribest offers the Greenstar Elite as a Complete Mastication juicer providing all 3 steps of the mastication process.
Pocket Recesses and Cutting Points on Twin Gears
The Greenstar Elite provides revolutionary stainless steel twin gears with special points to replicate the human mastication system. Firstly, the teeth of the twin gears were designed with special pocket recesses to aid in processing hard vegetables like carrots. This also creates a sharper edge at the initial grinding process and reduces the amount of strain exerted by the motor when processing harder produce. Secondly, cutting points have been placed on the gears allowing it to extract juice more efficiently and to handle sinewy vegetables like celery without getting tangles or clogged.
Pressure Adjustment Mechanism
The Greenstar allows you to easily adjust the amount of pressure that is required for pulp ejection in order to effectively handle a wider variety of produce without jamming or clogging. Different types of produce require a different amount of pressure within the juicing chamber in order to be most efficiently processed. The Greenstar allows you to adjust the amount of pressure without having to stop juicing- allowing you to use a wide variety of produce in one session for your maximum convenience.
Nylon Safety Buffer
Unlike ordinary dual gear juicers, Greenstar’s Elite twin gears feature a nylon safety buffer which serves as a crucial element of the high-quality design of the Green Star. Creating a buffer between the gears to ensure that the two metal gears do not come in contact with each other. The stainless steel gears are separated by a margin of 4/1000 of an inch at all times during operation in order to prevent any stainless steel shavings from inadvertently entering into the juice or the pulp.
Greenstar’s Complete Mastication System
Unlike other incomplete masticating juicers, the Greenstar juicers are equipped with all the functions of a complete mastication system. The powerful design of the Twin Gears makes it easy for the Greenstar to exercise a mastication that imitates the human teeth. The pocket recesses were created for slicing (incisors), the cutting points for cutting string cellulose (canines), and the gear teeth base for crushing (molars). These three processes portion produce into smaller pieces for easy juicing and cut stringy vegetables down for trouble-free processing and ejection (preventing produce from tangling around the gears and jamming up the pulp ejection system). Not only does the Greenstar Elite utilize the complete 3 stages of the mastication, but also adds a new mixing stage. In the mixing stage, the broken down produce to interact and activate, thereby increasing the nutritional value of the juice to its maximum.
Exclusive Magnetic and Bioceramic Technology
The Greenstar Elite features exclusive magnetic and bioceramic technology that allows it to extract juice of higher nutritional content. The magnets create a focused magnetic field that rearranges clusters of water so that it can latch on to more of the valuable vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients and extract it into your juice. The bioceramic material inside the twin gears utilize the kinetic energy of the turning gears to emit far-infrared- the wavelength at which water and all organic material naturally oscillates. This has a stabilizing effect on your juice by delaying oxidation and allows your extracted juice to remain fresher longer. With the Greenstar Elite’s Jumbo Twin Gears, the juice can stand up to 72 hours in the refrigerator with a minimum loss of nutritional value.
With the Greenstar Elite’s list of features and innovative design the Greenstar Elite offer unprecedented versatility not only in what you can juice but that you can create in your kitchen! The Greenstar has the capability to create wonderful recipes such as nut butters, sorbets, as well sauces and pate. The twin gears act as a food processor breaking down the produce to create a delicious dessert or snack for you and your family.

Top Customer Reviews
Finally, we purchased the Green Star GSE-5000. We've been using it weekly for over a year and are extremely happy with it. Takes about 30min for us to juice what turns into about 12 cups of green juice. That includes washing the produce and cleaning the machine afterward.
The GSE-5000 produces a great volume of juice per amount of produce, and the juice is clean and smooth like water.
Our trick to cleaning this machine is to run a whole lime and a whole lemon through it at the end of the juicing session. This gives the juice a nice lemonade-type taste, AND keeps the internals from getting all stained green or orange, or brown. We clean the machine immediately, and never allow it to sit dirty. The trick to cleaning the juicing screen is to run cold water over it, and scrub it out with the supplied brush, from the inside. This breaks off all the little pulp fibers that are stuck in the holes of the screen. Then scrub the outside. The pulp just comes right off quickly via this method in about a minute.
Would I love to own a Super Angel? You bet, but I'm not willing to spend $1,200 just to get 3% more volume.
Here's the ingredients for a typical green juice session:
2 bundles (how it comes bundle in a grocery store) of Kale, usually the dark blue green "dino" kale, and the "russian red."
1 bundle of chard, usually "Rainbow"
1 bundle of cilantro
1 bundle of parcely, but only once a week
2-3 celery stalks
1 orange/red/yellow bell pepper
1 green apple
1 whole lime
1 whole lemon
The Green Star juicers are the brand you want when you are SERIOUS about the QUALITY of your juice. Period.
"Fast" juicers basically obliterate the cellular structure of the fruits and vegetables. While this will give you juice quickly, it also destroys micronutrients through the brute force of the extraction, as well as the additional oxidation of the juice by the air introduced through the high speed blades.
"Masticating" juicers, particularly the currently popular "Vert" models, ARE better, but are still more gimmick than function. The reviews for these praise the better extraction, but MANY problems appear to occur due to the cheap construction of the devices, particularly the screen, which seems subject to breakage. These models have a LOT of plastic parts that are INTEGRAL to the machine, rather than just covers...
Now, the Green Star Elite GSE 5000 does have plastic, but the mechanical plastics are STURDY, DURABLE, and RIGID. The only thinner plastic part would be the unit housing cover. This, with reasonable care, should not crack, break, or otherwise fall apart easily. Since it IS an expensive piece of equipment, DO treat the parts with care, regardless how well constructed they are...
If you find this juicer "difficult" to clean or assemble, you simply should not be using any appliance more complicated than a spoon. Seriously. "DIFFICULT" IT IS NOT!!!
There are only SEVEN (7) parts to take off or put on. VERY EASY. Almost Idiot Proof.
The ONLY difficult parts to assembling it are:
1) making sure the augers are correctly aligned, with the "one dot" gear tooth between the "two dot" gear teeth of the other auger, and
2) Slightly rotating the twin augers when pushing them into the juicer body. They have to turn ever so slightly to align, but again, it is NOT difficult. Just gently "wiggle" them as you continue to gently push, and they will go in.
Do yourself and your juicer a favor, and cut your carrots into chunks no longer than about an inch. They will NEVER jam if you do. This goes for almost any vegetable. While the Green Star IS powerful, you purchased it to JUICE, NOT to cut the vegetables up and juice.
Also, if you take the extra time to cut the veggies before juicing, you will find that you will have to use FAR less pressure to push them into the juicer. (FWIW, I ALWAYS use the plastic, NOT the wooden pusher - It is DESIGNED not to reach all the way down to the gears, so you will NOT grind any plastic off - ignore that warning in the videos!!!)
Get a small bowl, and when the bowl is full, you have enough for a glass of juice.
If you are new to juicing:
1) Add ice cubes to your juice. The colder the better when you start, TRUST.
2) Add a bit of water to dilute it if the taste is too strong - It can take a bit of getting used to.
3) Keep a can of frozen Juice Concentrate in the freezer, and add a small spoon to juices that are too "green" to help make them a bit more palatable.
Carrots are your juicer's best friend. Put a piece or two after every soft veggie to help push the pulp through.
NEVER WAIT TO WIPE YOUR JUICER!!!
Every complaint about the Green Star screens is due to people NOT cleaning them promptly (within 30-60 minutes).
If you rinse and wipe your juicer FAITHFULLY and QUICKLY, you will never have a screen problem.
The Green Star 5000 comes with two brushes, and I have also found that a new toothbrush can do the job of them both pretty well.
The screen, which is the hardest part of the juicer to clean, collects fiber on the end where the pulp comes out. This is one reason cutting your produce into small chunks is strongly suggested.
Start by brushing the inside of the screen to loosen fibers. Then brush the outside of the screen to remove the loosened plant fiber. It shouldn't take more than a minute or two, tops.
For ANYONE who complains about the amount of time to use or clean this juicer, stop and consider the time and energy you would use to prepare and clean up after a regular meal. This juicer extracts MORE juice than any other model except the weird, cumbersome, and expensive Norwalk. And that puppy makes prepping your fruits and veggies into a religious ceremony...
And clean up for the Green Star is no more difficult than washing your blender or food processor. Easier in some ways, no sharp blades to look out for.
This juicer is an investment, and will change your life in regards to how you look at juicing. Grasses, leaves, even weeds are now part of our diet (Lamb's Quarters are so common, yet SO nutritious - my husband shakes his head, but knows to leave them alone when he sees them, so I can juice them!).
The additional cost will make up for itself in the LESS WASTE of juice from your produce, and the WIDER VARIETY of plants that you can put into this machine.
With a modicum of care, and a smattering of common sense, you should have NO problems, and YEARS of enjoyment with your Green Star. I know I am having a blast!!!
GS-5000. I did have a Norwalk back in the 70's and tried to use it, but just too messy and not easy to use. I finally gave it away. When I purchased my new Green Star, I actually went back and took another look at the Norwalk, but after watching the videos, I decided it hasn't changed much and if I purchased it I probably would not use it. So Gren Star was
my choice. The results of their nutrient testing of the juice was also a helpful deciding factor. Great juicer, nutrient dense juice and easy to use and clean. What more is there????
