How To Choose The Best Juicer Buy

Updated on November 20, 2013

Best Juicer Buy - What Is The Best Juice Machine For You?

Are you in need of the best juicer buy for juicing fruits and vegetables? The juice machine for you will depend on a couple small decisions that you will have to make. I will go through a couple things that you need to think about before you buy.

The best juicer buy for you personally is going to rely on what you are juicing. You would not be happy if you spent the money for a juice extractor to learn that it will not juice the fruits or vegetables you plan to juice. I will cover the two main juice machines, centrifugal and masticating.


Centrifugal Juicers

The first and least expensive is the centrifugal juicer. The centrifugal juicers gets their name from the word "centrifuge". The internal system of this juicer spins at a high RPM of as much as 10,000 to 15,000 to remove pulp from the fruit or vegetables.

Inside of the centrifugal juice machine is a round disc with razor-sharp blades. This disc spins at very high speeds that grinds as well as grates the vegetables and fruit into tiny pieces to extract the pulp from the juice. Basically it spins the juice out of the pulp rather then grinding or squeezing the juice out.

The most inexpensive of juicers are the centrifugal juicers. The main downside to them is they produce a wet pulp since they can only spin so much juice out. Some of these juicers will let you put the pulp through more than once to get additional juice out of the pulp.

If you are only interested in occasional juicing then a cheaper centrifugal juicer will work for you. The more expensive models will work for daily juicing of most fruits, vegetables, and roots. A centrifugal juicer is not the juicer for you if you are looking at juicing wheatgrass or leafy greens.

Masticating Juicers


Masticating Juice Extractors

The 2nd main type of juice machine is a masticating juicer. The masicating juicer is a more expensive type of juice extractor. This type of juice extractor uses an auger that turns similiar to a drill at 80 to 100 RPMs. The auger forces the juice from the vegetables and fruit by crushing them then pushing them firmly into a filter forcing the juice out.

By forcing the juice out slowly it does not get heated up as with the centrifugal juicer. Due to the cooler temperatures of the juice, it retains all of its essential nutrients and enzymes.

You will get much dryer pulp from the masicating juicer because of the way it forces and crushes the juice out. You could possibly get 20% more juice therefore there is less waste and normally no need to put your pulp through more than once. You can juice anything including wheatgrass and leafy greens with this kind of juice machine. It is not just for juicing either. It can grind, extrude pasta, mince, and make baby food. It is great for serious daily juicers that desire the maximum effect from their juicing.

What Is The Best Juicer Buy For You?

If you are an occasional juicer that does not juice leafy greens and wheatgrass then an inexpensive centrifugal juicer is the best juicer buy for you. a daily juicer that juices greens occasionally can get away with a more expensive centrifugal juicer model.

A more serious daily juicer that wishes to get the most out of juicing with greens and wheatgrass should check out a masticating juicer. You can pick up a masticating juicer for a little over $200.
