Looking for a juicer to buy .Well you have arrived at correct place. I often get asked “Which is the best Juicer?” Well the answer is there is no single best juicer. You need to first decide your requirements then accordingly do further research.
We can divide juicers into following basic categories.
- Citrus Juicers
- Centrifugal Juicers
- Masticating juicers
- Twin gear Masticating Juicers
Citrus Juicers as the name suggest juices only citrus fruits. If you are the one who juices mostly citrus fruits such as oranges, grapefruit, lemon etc than you should opt for a citrus juicer. Citrus juicers are cheapest among all categories. Citrus juicers can be further divided into two categories.
- Manual Citrus Juicer
- Electric Citrus juicer
I don’t recommend manual citrus juicer because you can get a basic model of electric citrus juice in just 20 bucks. Breville recently launched a new innovative citrus juicer known as ‘Active arm Citrus Press’. It’s an awesome citrus juicer which cost around $200. I know its little expensive buts innovative thoughtful makes it worth expense. With citrus press there is no need to manually press citrus fruits because Breville active arm will do this work for you.
Centrifugal juicers can juice everything except leafy greens. They operate at very-very high speed. They rotate at speed of around 10000 to 12000 revolutions per minutes. Because of very high speed they can make a glass of juice in just 10 seconds. Centrifugal juicers have wide feeding tube. You can directly feed fruits without cutting. They are also very easy to clean. Centrifugal juicers are recommended for those who want convenience and have very busy life schedule. Breville 800JEXL Juice Fountain Elite 1000 Watt Juice Extractor is the best centrifugal juicer in the market.
Masticating juicers operates at very low speed. They rotate at low speed of about 80-100 rpm. Due to low speed they take little more time than centrifugal juicer to make a glass of juice. But they produce nutrient rich juice with very high yield. They can also juice leafy greens like spinach, wheatgrass, barley etc. Masticating juicers are recommended for those who want nutrient rich juice and higher yield from their produce. Omega J8006 Nutrition Center Commercial Masticating Juicer is the best maticating Juicer in the market.
Twin Gear Juicers
Masticating juicers can also have twin gears. These kind of masticating juicers are known as triturating juicer or twin gear masticating juicer. They operate on same principle of masticating juicers but produce much higher yield than single gear masticating juicers. They can juice everything that is juicable. But they are expensive. Their price varies from $500 to $1000.
