Which juicer is right for me?
There are several types of juicers on the market. You have a variety to chose from. I literally have about 7 juicers, all types, all brands. I started off with a Centrifugal Juicer, mainly because it was more of them on the market, they are not as expensive as the other juicers, and I was not sure of my dedication to the juicing process.
CENTRIFUGAL JUICERS: Use toothed blades on the bottom of a spinning strainer basket, which separates juice from the pulp by centrifugal force Best for: All fruit, root vegetables. Less efficient for leaves and herbs Ease of use: Easy. Some have attachments, such as a citrus juicer, which may be useful Speed: Usually have at least two speeds Cleaning: Can be fussy, with up to nine parts Good to know: The system creates heat, which warms the juice and can reduce the nutritional quality compared with other juicing methods.
MASTICATING/COLD-PRESS JUICERS: Crush the produce using a screw-type system followed by pressing Best for: All produce—the best machines for extracting juice from leaves and herbs Ease of use: Reasonable Speed: Can be time-consuming to set up and slower to juice than centrifugal types Cleaning: Ideally cleaned straight after use Good to know: Most research shows they retain more vitamins, plant compounds, and enzymes than centrifugal machines because little heat is produced.
MANUAL JUICERS : You can buy inexpensive manual citrus juicers—a simple cone with a base to collect the juice. You can also purchase manual wheatgrass/leafy greens juicers, ideal if you have a centrifugal juicer,
