Guide to buying a juicer
A glass of fresh fruit and vegetable juice is considered one of the most delicious ways to absorb your daily vitamins and minerals. Freshly squeezed juices are loaded with flavor and health, something not often found in any other natural product. Juicing is becoming one of the fastest and easiest ways to enrich your body.
Basic types of juicer
Anyone who is serious about juicing should buy the best value for money juicer possible. There are several types on the market and they all have their good points. The type of juicer you invest in will depend on your budget and lifestyle. The three main types of juicers are the centrifugal juicer, the slow or chewing juicer, and the shredding juicer.
Buyers can choose between juicers and centrifugal juicers, steam extractors, and the basic citrus juicer. A citrus juicer may be the cheapest of these and is used only on citrus, but it is still a worthwhile purchase. For an up-to-date price list, you’d better do some research. Some countries, of course, will charge more for an item that is imported, so you should also go to your trusted home appliance supplier and find out as much detail as you can about the stock they have. These suppliers will also be able to advise you on the prices of the different models. Generally, the most expensive is the Triurating Juicer, Chewing Juicer, and Centrifugal Juicer in that order.
A centrifugal juicer juices quickly, doesn’t take up much space, and is ideal for hard vegetables like celery. However, it is quite noisy and the juice must be drunk in a hurry as it oxidizes quickly. A slow or chew juicer gives a great yield and can even squeeze the juice out of wheatgrass. The juice can be stored for up to approximately seventy hours. These juicers are generally more expensive than centrifugal juicers and produce a pulpy juice that requires a strainer. There are several other juicers, including a dual gear juicer, the augur vertical juicer, and the triger juicer. These have different pros and cons, and again you will find that your local appliance dealer will show you the different models. The centrifugal juicer is considered the best value for general use.
Juice quality and ease of use
There are optimal levels of pulp needed in juices for healthier consumption. The most effective are juicers that expel the pulp externally. This also applies to another important feature to consider when buying a juicer, is that it must be easy to clean. So when selecting a juicer, the larger the feed chute, the easier it will be to clean as well. Make sure it’s dishwasher safe, if necessary.
Something that is often overlooked is the warranty. Most of these juicers have only a one year warranty. It would be an advantage to find a longer warranty if possible, and this is a crucial factor to consider when comparing various models.
