Best Juicer Guide

What Juicer Is
Best For Me?

We have put together this simple juicer guide to give you the facts you need to choose the right juicer and the best juicer for you.

The first thing to Know — The “perfect” juicer is yet to be invented!

A juicer that juices everything, is quick and efficient and cleans itself, is yet to be invented. In the meantime you need to pick one that suits your lifestyle, juicing pattern and the kind of things you want to juice regularly.

There are a few different types of juicers available on the market today. Often juicers are referred to as one of the following ‘Centrifugal – Fast juicers’ or ‘Masticating -Slow or cold press juicers’.

Below we’ve tried to explain the differences between each type of juicer and their advantages and disadvantages, to help you choose the right juicer for you.

Cold Press Juicer

JASON SAYS
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.

Centrifugal Juicer

JASON SAYS
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.
