How to Buy the Best Rated Juicer
As part of our best rated juicer article we became more an advocate of the overall benefits of buying a best rated juicer to personal health and well being. Not to mention some of the drinks taste great.
As you are looking for a best rated juicer there are a number of factors and features that you need to take into consideration.
Let’s start with the fact that there are a couple of different types of juicers.
The most common is the centrifugal juicer. These both the most common and the cheapest as a rule. In a centrifugal juicer fruit and vegetables are usually fed in from the top. These types of best rated juicers are usually fast, will juice most fruits and vegetables, normally easy to clean and most of the parts can go into the dishwasher.
The biggest drawbacks of a centrifugal juicer are they tend to me noisy and do not do well with leafy vegetables like wheat grass. Another potential negative is that they produce heat that many believe will kill beneficial bacteria in the fruits and vegetables.
Another type of best rated juicer is the masticating juicer. A masticating juicer chews fruits and vegetables with one or two augers. Masticating juicers extract more juice, are normally very quiet, produce a smother juice and work well with wheat grass and other leafy vegetables.
The biggest negatives to a masticating juicer is that they are slower than an centrifugal juicer (sometimes MUCH slower) and you have to cut the fruit and vegetables into smaller pieces.
What are some key features to look for in a best rated Centrifugal Juicer.
Having a pulp ejector is a huge plus. Having an external pulp ejector which catches (removes) the pulp which means that you do not have to do it by hand. It also means that you can produce more juice per run since you do not have to clean the juicer.
Having multiple speeds gives you more options when making juice. Going slower for softer fruit and vegetables like melons, bananas or grapes works great. Go with a higher speed for harder fruits and vegetables like apples or carrots. Speed adjustment gives you the ability to make a smoother juice depending on what you are juicing.
Look for a larger feeder tube size, this helps reduce the preparation time needed before you can start enjoying your juice.
A juice collector that is the right size will help you juice faster. The size you need depends how many you want to serve in your home. Obviously the bigger your household the larger the collector you will need.
You can look for similar features in a masticating juicer. We like both centrifugal and masticating juicers depending mainly on how much you want to spend and what you plan on using your juicer for. If you want to juice nuts and leafy vegetables like wheat grass then you will have to go with a masticating juicer. Otherwise, a centrifugal juicer will work just fine.
