Knowing The Different Types of Juicers

Juicing is the best way to get the instant nutrition, enzymes, and good taste to start your day right. Juicers are similar in design: You feed fruit, greens, and greens through a feed tube, and the juicer separates juice from the pulp. How they separate the juice is what makes each type different. This is an important distinction to consider before you make a purchase.

Which type of juicer is best for you? Learn more about each juicer type, their pros and cons, and who should consider each juicer in below.

  • Masticating Juicers
  • Centrifugal Juicers
  • Citrus Juicers

Masticating Juicers

Masticating juicers, also known as slow juicers or cold press juicers, are considered the top juicers available. They slowly squeeze fruits and vegetables to separate the juice from the pulp. Their low speed minimizes heat build-up and oxidation - giving you the freshest, most nutritious, longer-lasting juice.

Pros: Retains more nutrients and enzymes, allows longer juice storage, provides the freshest pure juice without foam or pulp, usually allows for green leafy vegetables and other items.

Cons: More expensive and takes longer to juice because it works at a slower rate.

Best For: People who want to get the most out of their juicing experience and frequently demand premium juice.

Centrifugal Juicers

Centrifugal juicers are also known as fast juicers - they squeeze juice faster than masticating juicers. Centrifugal juicers also place items in direct contact with the high-speed blades. The blades spin quickly over the mesh strainer to quickly extract juice from fruits and vegetables.

Unfortunately, centrifugal juicers destroy nutrients due to the speed and heat generated during juicing.

Pros: Inexpensive, fast juicing, more common from manufacturers.

Cons: Low quality juice, high speed blades create more froth, noisy, not recommended for leafy greens.

Best For: People who are not sure if juicing is right for them but would like to try.

Citrus Juicers

Citrus juicers are the most standard form of juicer. They work on fruits like oranges, lemons, limes, and grapefruit. Usually, you cut the fruit in half and press each side down on the cone. The juice is released into a bowl.

Pros: Ideal for citrus fruits, affordable, compact and easy to clean and use.

Cons: Very limited in what you can produce with them.

Best For: People who occasionally want a fresh cup of juice or fresh juice for mixed drinks.
