Wheatgrass is one of the most nutritious foods on the planet, and while there might not be many culinary applications for the grass itself, many find that juice from the wheatgrass provides all of the health benefits without the fibrous texture of the grass. In order to get wheatgrass juice, however, you either have to purchase it from the store or juice it yourself.

In many cases, even the wheatgrass juice sold in health food stores has been processed to some degree, to keep it fresh in transportation from farm to store. This means that some of the nutrients have been removed from the juice and other chemicals have been added to act as preservatives.

The best way to get natural, pure wheatgrass juice is to juice it yourself with an electric wheatgrass juicer. Unlike manual wheatgrass juicers, which require you to power the juicer with a crank (but therefore do not require any electricity to run), and electric juicer does all the work. All you have to do is put in the wheatgrass and the juicer extracts as much juice as possible.

Why can’t you use a regular juicer? Because, unlike a peach or apple, wheatgrass does not contain very much juice. It’s much more difficult to juice than a piece of fruit and requires a special kind of juicer specifically designed to extract juice from the wheatgrass stalks.

Whether you opt for a manual or electric model will depend on how often you are planning on juicing and which model best fits your needs. Not every wheatgrass juicer will be right for everyone, but if you are interested in wheatgrass juicing, we have everything you need to know before picking out your juicer.

The Good: benefits of electric wheatgrass juicing

An electric wheatgrass juicer sucks in the grass, applies its own pressure and squeezes the liquid out of the wheatgrass. Electric models run from fairly inexpensive to very inexpensive. How much money you should spend will depend on how much juicing you are going to be doing and what kind of result you want to obtain. Electric wheatgrass juicers have a number of advantages of manual models, including the fact that the machine does all of the juicing, and often in a more efficient way than is possible with a hand crank juicer.

The blades on these juicers are designed to cut the wheat grass into a pulp, from which, the juice is much easier to extract, rather than just pressing the blades themselves. This method produces a great deal of juice, which means you make the most of the wheatgrass that you process through your juicer. You want a juicer that gets the pulp and leftover material as dry as possible, so no juice is being wasted.

Electric juicers are just going to be more efficient. Because they are powered by an electric motor and not your elbow grease, they can press much more wheatgrass than a manual model can. If you are trying to make a lot of wheatgrass juice in a short amount of time, you are going to have much better luck with one of these models than with a manual wheatgrass juicer. Especially in commercial applications, an electric model is going to serve you better.

Most of these juicers are relatively small, made of durable materials, and are designed to be easy to clean. For the individual that plans on juicing every day, you want a juicer that is easy to take apart, clean, and put back together—otherwise, you simply won’t use it.

For those that want large quantities (or even just a single serving) of wheatgrass juice as quickly as possible, an electric juicer is a must. When it comes to the wheatgrass juicer, electric versions also offer the widest range of features and operation methods. While some use heat in their process and will produce a warm juice, many can cold press the wheatgrass just as well as a manual juicer, and some can even extract more juice than a manual juicer, giving you the ability to exert more pressure on the wheatgrass than you might with a the manual version.

These electric juicers can even do double duty—many have settings that allow you to juice other things, from spinach to soft fruit. If you prefer a juicer that exclusively does wheatgrass, there are models that do that as well.

The Bad: buying electric wheatgrass juicers can be costly.

Electric wheatgrass juicers do have some drawbacks. They are not as environmentally friendly as manual models, as they do require electricity to work. Because of the electricity involved, they are also not as easy to clean—a manual model can be (but maybe should not always be) submerged in water, while only parts of any electric juicer can be removed for thorough cleaning.

Electric juicers also tend to be more expensive than manual juicers, especially over the long run, because you do have to pay for the electricity to operate them. For those that do not want to manually juice their wheatgrass (and to stop paying for wheatgrass juice from a store), an electric juicer is often the best solution.

Why Juice Wheatgrass?

Wheatgrass contains an amazing array of nutrients that would be difficult to get through just about any source. Just a few ounces of wheatgrass juice contains more nutrients that several pounds of fruits and vegetables. If you are trying to eat a more nutrient-rich diet but find it difficult to get the recommended servings of fruits and vegetables, drinking wheatgrass juice every day can definitely improve your diet.

Top Three Electric Wheatgrass Juicers to buy

After some research and testing out some juicers myself I've made a top 3. To be clear I don't have the budget to buy every juicer in the world. So I needed to borrow some and have 2 myself. So there are a whole lot more out. But I think I tried some of the top products available today.

Breville Juice Fountain Elite

This Breville juicer is one of the most powerful and stylish models money can buy. Unlike many other juicers that look plastic and tacky sitting on your counter, the Breville juicer is sleek and refined, with easy to remove and clean parts. It boasts an expert filtering screen that catches pulp and ensures that the juice is smooth, but still full of nutrients. The only complaint about this model is that it can be a little noisy, but that’s probably worth the quality juice that it produces. Next to my Brauwn Blender this is the favorite machine in my kitchen for healthy juicing.

Breville comparison

Samson Advanced Wheatgrass Juicer 9005

This Samson juicer is designed both for those that want to juice wheatgrass on a daily basis and for those that might want to try out some other juices (or add a little bit of extra flavor to the wheatgrass). This model is a bit of a beast, but it has more than enough power to create smooth, delicious juice, with low foam and very little heat.

Green Power KPE1304 Twin Gear Juicer

This Green Power juicer model is a favorite of avid wheatgrass aficionados. It’s a wheatgrass juicing triple threat: the best yield on wheatgrass, extremely durable, and easy to clean. It’s definitely on the more expensive end, but with all of the features, it’s definitely worth the few extra bucks for many. But for myself the Breville Juice Foutain Elite fits all my needs and is a lot less costly.
