Juicer Buying Guide

Juices made from fruits and vegetables have the most amazing health benefits. They regulate the blood pressure, ease muscle aches and joint pain, give you the energy you need after a busy day at work and even do wonders for your sexual potency. Juicers are incredibly useful devices that make it easy for you to make your own juice from fresh fruits and vegetables. In this Juicer Buying Guide, we discuss the type of juicers, juicer features to look out for and the most popular juicer brands available in the market. Let’s get started!

Types of Juicers

You should choose a type of juicer depending on the type of juice that you prefer to drink and how much time you can afford to spend on preparing the juice. There are two types of juicers.

Auger-style juicers

Auger-style juicers are also called masticating juicers or cold press juicers. They work by crushing and mashing the fruits and vegetables in a slow and deliberate manner. They are quite expensive; a typical auger-style juicer costs $400.  They leave behind more pulp and produce fiber-rich juices.

 Juice extractors

Juice extractors prepare juice in very little time by using a fast whirling disk to cut the fruits and vegetables into small little pieces and then to spin them to separate the juice from the pulp. While the machine doesn’t take long to operate, you will have to put some time into cleaning and preparing the fruits and veggies that you put into the juice extractor.

Juicer Features

Let’s look at some of the features that you will want your juicer to have.

Clear juice container

Your juicer should have a clear, see through container, with visible markings in ounces and milliliters.

Cord storage

The juicer should have some way of hiding the cords when you’re not using it.

Dishwasher safe

It should be easy to clean the removable parts of the juicer using a dishwasher.

Dust cover

The juicer should come with a dust cover to protect the opening of the chute as you insert the fruit and vegetables for the juicing.

Large chute

The juicer should have a large chute capable of accommodating large pieces of the produce with ease.

 Long cord

Longer cords provide greater flexibility, which is why we recommend buying juicers that come with a long cord.

Pulp regulator

Pulp regulator allows you to change the pulpiness of the juice from time to time.
