Which is the best juicer for me?
With so many options out there, why not see the differences for yourself?
The higher end centrifugal juicers are owned by most people because of their speed and efficiency. You can juice fast, clean it up fast and the good ones extract A LOT of juice from the produce. These high speed juicers work with centrifugal force to extract the juice. The fruits and vegetables are pushed down a feed tube (mostly whole, so no chopping is required) on to a serrated cutting blade on the bottom of a rapidly spinning mesh, at around 12000 RPM. This spinning cutter, slices the veg and fruit and the pulp is flung into the pulp extractor. Perfect for people that are time poor but want to make juice every day.
- The heat generated from ‘fast’ juicing reduces the lifespan of your juice, meaning a juice stays fresh (if stored in an airtight, dark flask) for 5-7 hours max.
- Not as effective at juice extracting as slow/masticating juicers.
- They can be noisy as the the motor needs to run at a high speed.
- Doesn’t juice wheatgrass
- Less efficient at juicing leafy greens
Slow or cold press juicing retains more nutrients and enzymes, as the fruits and vegetables aren’t shredded with blades, which exposes the ingredients to heat and therefore speeds up oxidation. Slow press juicing is more efficient at extracting juice and gives a higher yield of juice from your produce, so using a masticating juicer can save you money on produce. Because very little heat is introduced into the process, you can store your juices for up to 48hours, without losing the nutritional value. Meaning you can prepare juices in advance, which is great for busy lifestyles. Slow press juicers are perfect for juicing dark, leafy greens such as kale and spinach, and takes wheatgrass like a dream.
