Accurate Montel Williams Health Master Review
If you have been up late at night, you probably have seen the informercials about his newest product, but I would like to provide you with an Accurate Montel Williams Health Master Review. This product has been heavily promoted as “more than a blender” and that it literally pulverizes fruits and vegetables – as well as concrete. Along with the purchase, you are told that you will receive bonus recipe books and an eating plan. Its claim to fame is that it replaces dozens of kitchen appliances that it “assumes” everyone has in their household.
For me the most eye catching quality was that it created juices that were healthy and delicious. I already own a well known, brand name juicer and it is very difficult to clean, so when I saw the infomercials I thought that this product would be a much easier appliance to clean than my juicer.
You don't need a health degree to know that drinking freshly juiced raw vegetables is definitely a plus if you or your family have a goal to achieve healthy diets. This is especially important if you are losing weight by eating healthy. There are too many people today that eat out of a box, or a can and never get the true basic nutrients that come with fresh produce. I liked the idea of having a handy, easy to clean appliance that would allow me to improve my physical wellbeing.
My first review point is that this product is definitely easy to clean. It is basically a blender and there are no parts on it that cannot be washed easily. Everything is easily accessible to clean. You just remove the top and you can put the pieces in your dishwasher or you can wash it by hand in the sink. You don't need a degree as a health master to realize that if a product is easy to clean, it will be used more often and the results will be seen much quicker than a product used infrequently.
The bonus recipe books you get are only a few pages long, but the recipes are very simple to make. However, there was only one book on juicing (about a dozen recipes) and the rest were on how to make party drinks, like frozen margaritas, salad dressings, frozen ice cream, and slushy drinks. These types of food products seemed a little counterproductive to eating healthy foods.
My second review point is the one that brings up my upset with the Montel Williams Health Master being a product that produces healthy “juices”. I used one of the recipes in the juicing book and took an apple, a grapefruit and a slice of ginger root and blended them per the instruction book. It took over a minute to finally get the grapefruit blended enough so that it was somewhat liquid. However, the final result was nothing I would consider “juice”. It was a thick, pulpy drink. I had to use a spoon rather than drinking it, and it had the consistency of a slushy drink, except it didn’t melt in your mouth. It was also full of air bubbles and very difficult to swallow. I tried adding water, but the consistency just became worse.
Granted, grapefruit is a somewhat stringy fruit, but the other recipes in the books rely heavily on all kinds of fruits and vegetables that would also have this same consistency. I don't see how they can promote this product for its ability to produce “juices” because the final result is too thick to even drink without watering down the ingredients.
My fourth review point concerns the payment handling by the company. I ordered mine on January 9th and received it within a couple weeks. The infomercial offers a 60 day money back guarantee, but I decided to mail it back in less than 30 days. My first charge (which included postage) posted on my credit card the day after I made the phone purchase. When I called to find out how to return the product, I was told I would receive a credit for the first purchase payment on my charge card within 72 business hours of receipt.
I sent the product back via UPS with a confirmation delivery signature required. They received the product on Feb. 3rd, however, not only did I not get the credit on my charge card, but on Feb. 11th they posted another charge on my credit card. I tried to call to find out why this had occurred and all I got was basically a busy signal on their business line. I tried calling the "new sales” department and they told me I had to keep checking on their confirmation/refund website. Finally, on Feb. 16th the credit appeared. It also finally appeared on my credit card account. What is frustrating now is that I have a credit on my charge card, when I should have a zero balance.
My final point in this accurate review of Montel Williams Health Master is that this product promotes itself as “more than a blender” so I expected more than a blender. What I got was a very large, very heavy blender. Yes, it is powerful. Yes, it can grind up concrete. Yes, it is easy to clean, has a large capacity, and can produce heated soups, ice cream, and various other products. But it is still a blender, so if you are looking for the great juicer that they are promoting on television, then you will probably be disappointed. All of the above comments are strictly my opinion and you are free to make your own judgments and assessments of this product, if you choose to purchase it.
Thank you for reading my review of the Health Master.
