Your Guide To Buying a Juicer

In today's fast-paced society, people don't have a lot of time to devote to eating. Drinking juices of fruits and vegetables is a time-saving method of getting the nutrients your body needs. For example, it takes at least three carrots to produce a glass of carrot juice. To get all the vitamins and minerals in those carrots, you can either 1) chew them, which might take as much as five minutes--or 2) you can just drink a glass of juice, which you can finish in a few seconds. You'll probably want to buy a juicer that is the best at extracting the nutrients out of those fruits and vegetables, but at the same time is easy to use and that is easy to clean.

Here is a guide to some of the best juicers on the market. It'll help you:

  • Choose the right type of juicer

  • See useful tips about that particular type of juicer,

  • Read reviews of different juicers, and what customers are saying,

  • Select the right brand of juicer, and

  • Compare prices and find the best deals.

Types of Juicers

We can classify juicers by the method that they use for extracting juice. Here is a brief summary of the working method of each type:

  • Masticating Juicers: A masticating juicer literally "chews" the fruit into little pieces and squeezes them by means of an auger (a sort of rotating drill bit, but for food). By this means, it extracts juice well, even from foods that have low water content, such as nuts or greens (like wheat grass). But they work more slowly than the other alternatives and are more expensive. The Aicok Cold Press is a good example, with a slow-rotating auger that spins at 80 RPM, to get out a maximum amount of juice, without overheating.

  • Triturating Juicers: This works on the same principle as a masticating juicer, but here there are two augers, which ensure chopping the food up to extract up to the last drop of juice. They’re also called “twin gear juices”. They do a better job but are consequently more expensive than the masticating juicers. The Tribest Greenstar is a good example of a triturating juicer. It also is capable of making nut milk and nut butter!

  • Centrifugal Juicers: Here you put the fruit into a feeding tube, and a high-speed rotating blade shreds the fruit. The blade has a mesh attached that filters out the juice. There are two methods of treating the remaining pulp: one type of machine expels it into a type of collecting bin, whereas another type retains the pulp inside. This will require you to clean the machine more frequently. The Hamilton Beach Big Mouth Pro Juicer is a centrifugal juicer with a large collecting bin to gather the pulp.

  • Electric Reamers (Citrus Juicers): Everyone is familiar with the old-fashioned method of getting the juice out of citrus fruits such as oranges, lemons, and grapefruits: You cut the fruit in half, and squeeze it by pressing the fruit and rotating it over a ridged reamer that extracts the juice. The juice then passes through a strainer that removes the pits and pulp. There are electric versions of this device, which can extract greater quantities of juice with less exertion (you'll still have to cut the citrus fruits in half though).  The Avamix CJ180 Electric Citrus Bar Juicer is a good electric reamer.

What reviewers say?

  • Pulp: We all know that juicing an orange by hand will leave a lot of pulp—both in the juice and in the fruit's rind. The best juicers remove all the juice and separate out all the pulp. But that usually means increased cost. But the pulp can be employed in some other recipes, or used as compost.

  • Easy to clean: Some juicers leave the pulp inside the machine, whereas others have a special collection bin for the leftover pulp. The ones with the collection bin will require less frequent cleaning. Being dishwasher-safe is a big plus here, since there might be a lot of parts to the juicer, and they could get damaged or lost if washed by hand.

  • Easy to use: All juicers have safety features so that you don't hurt yourself from the rotating parts. But being easy to assemble the device and take it apart for cleaning is a big consideration.

  • Cost: The masticating and triturating juicers are the most expensive since they're the best at extracting every last bit of juice. On the other hand, some triturating juicers have a 12-year warranty--much longer than any centrifugal juicer! But the centrifugal juicers are an attractive lower-costing and faster alternative.

Important Features

  • Quality of the juice: There is a noticeable improvement in taste when using a masticating juicer as opposed to a centrifugal juicer. Since less of the fruit goes to waste, the masticating juicer is better at retaining the taste of the original food.

  • Dishwasher–safe cleaning: A juicer whose parts are dishwasher-safe is a big plus. For example, with the centrifugal juicer, the mesh strainer is rather delicate—hand-washing can damage the delicate mesh, and it will no longer strain out the juice well.

  • Efficiency in extracting juice: It goes without saying that the more juice that the machine extracts, the better. The centrifugal juicer will extract the juice well when the rotating blades are new, but that might decrease with extended use. The masticating juicer will do a better job in this area but will be more expensive. Studies have shown that you'll get 20% more juice out of the masticating juicer as compared to the centrifugal juicer.

  • Removing pulp: You'll want to look for a juicer that expels the pulp into a removable bin for disposal. Otherwise, you'll find yourself having to take apart the juicer quite frequently to remove all the pulp.

  • Multiple speeds: It's a big plus if the juicer has two speeds: a high speed for fruits and vegetables with high water content, and a low speed drier foods, like leafy vegetables. Alternatively, the Elehot Juicer Machine has a low speed of 8000 RPM for soft fruits and vegetables, such as oranges and tomatoes, and a high speed of 12000 RPM for hard foods, like carrots, celery, and beets.

  • The noise factor: Some reamers and centrifugal juicers have a lot of friction between the rotating parts. This leads to noisy operation. The masticating juicers work slowly, with less friction, and are therefore quieter.

  • Feeding Tube Size: The masticating juicers don’t allow for inserting a lot of food at once. The centrifugal juicers are generally faster in this regard, with a 3” wide chute to insert the food. You don't have to cut up the food so much before putting it through a centrifugal juicer.

  • Workspace: There are horizontal and upright juicers available. If you're limited in working space in your kitchen, you might prefer an upright juicer, since it takes up less space on the table. Check the dimensions of the juicer before you buy it.
