Oh my... I was so excited about getting my Hurom Slow Juicer to make my tofu process faster... Total fail. :(
It wears its name very well... It is very slow. I don't mind the speed of the juicer itself, but it clogs really easily. We had to undo the juicer many times to clean it and unclog the pulp. Then, at some point, the juicer started to smell from overheating.
The most disappointing thing of all is that it left a gigantic amount of pulp in the soy milk, which does not produce good tofu as a lot of okara will remain in it.
They advertise all over the place that you can make tofu with it... So I am quite disappointed.
We will have to return it to the store tomorrow. It is a huge investment for an even bigger let down.
After refiltering the milk manually, we (my boyfriend and I) noticed that the soy milk seemed to be of a higher quality than what we get usually. Also, it curdled much better (bigger curds). But in the end, we got the same amount of tofu in the same amount of time. We also dissolved our nigari in water before pouring it in. This might have caused the better curds...
There are some advantages to this method (but so few), but the juicer is still too much of a let down.
With the frustration and the unclogging, we did not save any time over the traditional method.
So, it is back to the drawing board. We will watch more tutorial videos and try to find a more streamline and shorter method to achieve a good, organic and healthy homemade tofu.
