If you are new to the world of juicing, then you are probably wondering about which juicer you should invest your hard earned money in. There are many juicers to choose from with many different features. Most importantly, some juicers out there are really costly.

Let me use this article to guide you about what you need to look for in a juicer to really get value for the money you put in.

Here are some factors to consider…

Ease Of Use & Cleaning: This may not seem like a big one, but trust me, it is! If your juicer is not easy to use and clean-up after use, over time, you will find yourself using it less and less. No matter how feature rich it is, its still should not be too much of a hassle or it will just end up being a very expensive paper weight. So, when buying the juicer make sure that its easy to assemble and disassemble and easy to clean.

Yield Produced: Make sure that your juicer has a yield of at least 40%. This is big factor. If you don't check up on this, you will end up wasting a lot of glasses of juice. The juice will remain in the pulp that is produced and it will be a waste.

Type & Related Health Benefits: A juicer whose blades move too fast causes the oxidation of the juice. This is bad. However, if you consume the juice directly after producing it, it should not be a problem. There is only a problem if you let the juice sit for a few hours before consuming it. So, try to choose one that has slow moving blades. But make sure that the blades of the juicer do not heat up too much too. High temperatures destroy the natural enzymes in raw food making juicing pointless.

Replacement Parts: Make sure that the company from which you are buying the juicer has a clear policy on replacing parts that may ware out. Juicers have gears etc. that move at a very high speed. There is a huge possibility of wear and damage of the parts. If the company is not very clear on their replacement policy this may be a bad sign.

Reliability: Before you purchase the juicer, be sure to check the reviews. A good juicer should last for a few years. But there are in-expensive juicers out there, that are not sturdy enough and thus don't end up lasting very long. They work well 8 months to a year at max. So, be sure to verify what the word on the street is about that juicer.
