Juicing may seem simple on the surface, but there’s actually a lot that goes into it that most people don’t realize. Finding the best juicer for you is paramount.
Cost, ease of use, ease of cleaning, the type of watt, appearance, and other factors can all play a role in choosing a juicer. Below are some of the best juicers on the market with our personal reviews, and our top recommendations.
Choosing a juicer depends on what kind of juicing you intend to do. There are citrus juicers, masticating juicers, centrifugal juicers, central auger juicers, and dual auger juicers.
The fact that there are so many types of juicers may seem confusing at first and that’s why I’m going to go over the different juicers and what they do on this page.
Citrus Juicers primarily juice citrus-only fruits such as oranges, limes, lemons, grapefruits etc. They are also called reamers. The Juice is extracted by pressing or grinding a halved citrus along the juicer’s conical center and discarding the rind.
Some citrus juicers are stationary and require the user to manually press or grind the cut citrus half themselves, while others are automatic and electrical.
A masticating juicer uses a single auger to compact and crush produce into smaller sections before squeezing out its juice along a static screen while the pulp is expelled through a separate outlet.
With centrifugal juicers, a flat cutting blade is used to cut up the fruits and vegetables. Centrifugal juicers are the most popular and probably the kind of juicer that comes to mind when the average person thinks of juicers.
Centrifugal juicers spin the blade at a high speed to separate the juice from the pulp, leaving you with all the nutrients of the fruits and vegetables.
