How to choose the right juicer:

Just like everything else in life, you get what you pay for! if you’re not happy with the juicer you own it’s going to make the difference between juicing daily and letting it collects dust your counter-top.  For the people that keep asking if you can use a blender instead of a juicer, if you want to drink juicy mush, be my guest! You can check out Juiceful Reviews to find a juicer that’s right for you but here is a list of what you should look for in a juicer;

  • Choose a machine with adequate horsepower, something between 0.3 to 1 hp.
  • Make sure the juicer that your purchasing is efficient at extracting juice.
  • Look for a juicer  that has a large feed tube,  a wide-mouth for getting in more produce to juice more quickly.
  •  Look for a juicer that has a few parts to clean, most if not all are dishwasher safe but less parts means more time doing what you’d like. Cleanup  should be fast and efficient, Just like your juicer.

Two types of juicers, ( Centrifugal and Masticating ).

Centrifugal  juicers generally have an upright design. You push your produce through a little tube or a large tube that shreds it into pulp by using a rapidly spinning mesh blade. These juicers are quick and easy to use, they are not really too expensive and pretty much get the job done.

Masticating juicer’s are a type of juicer that produces juice with either a single auger or twin gear. Pieces of fruits and vegetables are fed into the top of the tube and are crushed and squeezed. Juice drains out of the underside, while the pulp is pushed out at the end of the tube. Because of the slower crushing and squeezing action, masticating juicers can process wheat-grass and will juice leafy greens a little better than a centrifugal juicer. The juice these devices produce will last much longer than juice made in a centrifugal juicer, and there is indication that more nutrients are preserved. The drawbacks are that they take longer to make juice because they are slower, and produce has to be cut in smaller pieces because they do not come with wide mouths.

Which one should you buy? Get the one that you plan on using daily not yearly!
