Juicing has grown into among the latest trends of the wellness marketplace nowadays, and there is a fantastic probability that you’re taking a look at purchasing your juicer.
Deciding which you need to juice is a significant first step. However, now you are probably left wondering what the ideal kind of juicer is. There are numerous types the industry, and all of them have distinct features. So, which is perfect for you? Let’s check them out!
01) Centrifugal Force Juicer
Centrifugal juicers are hugely popular juicers that work by having a flat cutting blade and strainer on the bottom. Its mechanism forces the cut fruit into the strainer to separate the pulp from the juice. This Sagnart Centrifugal Juice Extractor is one of the best centrifugal force juicers on the market.
While it is effective in removing the pulp and keeping just the juices, the Sagnart is a bit noisy because it requires the hardware to work hard and produce a fast spinning action to efficiently cut and juice the fruit. However, it makes up for everything in the amount of pure delicious juice it extracts from basically any fruit or veggie of your choosing. Its high-powered blade will slice through anything and squeeze out all the nutrients into your favorite healthy glass of juice. Its two power settings are more than enough for the hardest of fruits and veggies out there, while its handy lid lock lever provides extra safety as it stops the juicer from running if improperly locked.
02) Masticating Juicer
Masticating juicers are also known as slow juicers because the mechanism found on this machine has low speed and works by crushing the fruit through a sharp screen. This Jocuu Slow Masticating Juicer is our absolute favorite of the year. It comes with two-speed modes – one for soft ingredients, like blueberries or kale, and the other for hard food items, like carrots and apples. It is highly efficient at separating juice and pulp, as well as reducing oxidation so that you can store your favorite juice in the fridge longer.
Because of its slow mechanism, it does not heat up and it stops the nutrients from being eliminated from the juice. This is a great option for a healthy juice, and the pro is that is not as loud as a centrifugal force juicer. However, it is slower, so you will need a bit more time making your juice with this machine. The best solution is to cut up your fruits and veggies beforehand so that the juicer can do its magic while you’re getting ready for work or the gym.
03) Horizontal Masticating Juicers
A horizontal masticating juicer uses a special deceleration motor that has a slow speed that allows juice to be produced without oxidizing the fruit or heating it. The horizontal masticating juicer that came out on top after trials at Fika NYC is the TKTK Wide Feed Chute Masticating Juicer Extractor. This juicer comes with an innovative newly-designed European motor which decreases the noise to only 55dbs, which makes it one of the quietest juicers out there.
The great thing about this is the machine will push the pulp out and separate it from the juice, which makes cleaning easier as the pulp will not stick to the strainer, and the juice can flow more easily. It is best used with leafy vegetables as it allows you to produce more juice and also it prevents clogging from the pulp and fibers of leafy vegetables.
04) Twin Gear Juicer
Twin gear juicer is another type of masticating juicer that yields better quality juices. An early note that twin gear juicers are one of the most expensive juicers in the market so it is an investment. If your diet consists mainly of fruit and vegetable juices then you should invest in a good quality juicer such as the Tribest GSE-5050 Greenstar Elite, which will give you great value for money. This juicer has it all: speed, power, juice quality and flavor preservation, and low noise.
Just like masticating juicers, this twin gear juicer works slowly to prevent oxidizing and heating the nutrients found in your fruits and vegetables. Since it has two gears, it works relatively faster than most masticating juicers, and slightly slower than centrifugal juicers. However, the all-in-one deal makes it worth the price.
o5) Juice Press
A Juice press is a manual juicer that is great if you do not like to maintain an appliance for your juicing needs. It is easy and simple to use and you can have more control over the way your fruits and vegetables are juiced. The perfect representative of this type of juicer is the Zulay Professional Citrus Juicer.
It works by having your fruits or vegetables wrapped in a juice cloth and pressed manually. The cloth helps the pulp stay together and filters out any fibers from getting into the juice. Since there is no electricity involved you can juice more and not worry about racking up your electricity bills. You can also decide whether you press your fruits and veggies for a long time ensuring that you get the most out of your produce. And since the juice press works with a hydraulic mechanism you do not need to put in much effort on pressing, as each shift on the lever will tightly press your produce even more with less effort.
