Juicer Buying Guide

With so many different types of juicers available on the market, from very basic to sophisticated, it’s not easy to work out which juicer best suits your needs and budget.

It’s important to have a good understanding of what types of fruits and vegetables you want to juice. Most basic juicers can only handle fruits, whereas the more expensive models are also able to handle leafy greens.

Here’s a quick overview of the different types of juicers you can choose from.

1. Manual Citrus Juicers

Juicers reviews and recommendationsManual juicers are typically much more affordable (and far less complicated) than motorized or electric juicers.

They are specifically designed for juicing citrus fruits such as oranges, mandarins, lemons and grapefruits, but not leafy greens.

Manual juicers come in different shapes and sizes, from basic handheld squeezers to more advanced commercial grade citrus press juicers.

2. Masticating Juicers

A masticating juicer uses a single gear (otherwise known as an auger) to crush your produce into pulp before extracting the juice.

This process of masticating breaks down the cell walls of fruits and vegetables, resulting in more nutritious juice and less pulp.

A centrifugal juicer uses a cutting blade to chop up the fruits and vegetables before spinning at very high speed. The centrifugal force separates the juice from the pulp.

3. Triturating Juicers

Also known as twin gear or double auger juicers, triturating juicers are typically the more expensive models on the juicer market. But they are also known to create the best quality juice with the best yield.

A triturating juicer is very similar to a masticating juicer. The main difference is that a triturating juicer uses twin gears instead of a single gear, resulting in excellent juice.

But they are also the most expensive type of juicer.
