What is the best juicer? In the previous post, we went into the different kinds of juicer that are available. Within the three main types we talked about, though, the great number of brands and styles can make deciding difficult and confusing. Here is a comparison.
The best juicer
When you’re buying a juicer, it’s important to keep in mind the technical specifications as well as the type of operation (centrifugal vs masticating). We made a comparison with some of the most popular juicers:
- BREVILLE 800 JEXL Juice Fontain Elite
- OMEGA 4000 Juicer
- OMEGA VRT350
- BREVILLE BJS 600XL
- OMEGA J8006
- GREEN STAR GSE-5500
- NORWALK 280
Check them all out and choose the best juicer for you!
- Consider the ease of cleaning the various parts of the juicer. You don’t want to feel like you’re field-stripping a tractor every morning: you need a juicer you can use comfortably, that’s quick and convenient to clean and that’s put together in a way that makes sense to you. Centrifugal models and simple masticating juicers are usually easy to clean, while more complex models should come apart easily for cleaning. The best juicer is designed with this in mind! A slower rotation usually ensures less heat damage, better processing and more complete juice yield. If you want the very best results, a twin-gear masticating juicer with a hydraulic press is the best choice.
- Finally, remember that centrifugal juicers scored lower than masticating juicers for preserving the enzymes in food, for preventing heat damage to the phytonutrients in your ingredients and for efficiency; masticating juicers extract more juice too! Quality juice, not juicing speed, should be your number one priority, and if you want to get the best out of your diet or juicing treatment you should consider using a masticating juicer. The OMEGA VRT350, the BREVILLE BJS 600XL, the OMEGA J8006 and the GREEN STAR GSE-5500 are great masticating juicers but the first two are much easier to clean.
