BRIX Meter (a.k.a. Refractometer)


Here's an amazingly simple way to know the quality of fruits and vegetables! Just add a few drops of juice and look through the eye piece! BRIX is a measure of total sugars, minerals and other dissolved nutrients in a liquid. The more ripe and nutrient dense, the higher the reading!

Many producers pick too early or grow in depleted soils. Fruit and veggies may look good, but not measure up when compared to desired BRIX levels. Time to get your BRIX!

We've tried many BRIX meters and found models that we think offer the best value for the money. Some cost as much as $120. Ours are much less! We bought them in quantity and priced them low because we think every kitchen should have one! A BRIX meter is one of the most important cooking appliances you will ever buy because it ensures your food dollars will go farther.

Each BRIX meter comes with a nice solid case to protect it, a pipette to help apply drops of juice, and a chart listing grades of POOR, AVERAGE, GOOD and GREAT for lots of fruits and veggies.

NaturalCheck offers a garlic press, as well, to help extract juice from celery, potatoes and other produce that is hard to squeeze by hand. Buy both and save on shipping.
