If you want to buy a juicer, you’ve come to the right place! ;) Here is some tips to help you choose the best Cold Press Juicer for you & your family.
Type of Juicer
First of all, you need to understand that there are two main types of juicers – cold-press (masticating) juicers and centrifugal juicers. The cold-press juicers preserve most of the nutritional quality of fruits and vegetables as they don’t produce heat. HEAT breaks down enzymes and vitamins. The cold press juicers also run at a low speed and prevent oxidation in the process.On the other hand, centrifugal juicers have powerful motors that rotate at high speeds and produce heat which damages enzymes and vitamins.
Can you use the juicer with ease and can anyone else use it without problems? The best juicer will feature a user manual and clearly labelled on and off buttons. Other juicers (the modern ones) have a reverse function for unclogging the appliance if need be. You also need to determine if the juicer will juice hard fruits and vegetables efficiently.
You need to buy a juicer that performs the functions of other kitchen gadgets such as a blender. You should be able to use your juicer to make smoothies, execute simple dishes or sauces. For that reason, you need to consider going for a modern juicer/ latest generation juicer.
The Pulp Collection System
Does the juicer come with a large pulp collection system that saves you the trouble of emptying the pulp bin frequently? Your answer should be yes since you need to collect juice continuously.
Will the juice be free of pulp, foam and froth? High-quality cold press juicers produce juices without pulp, froth, and foam. The juice produced is also richly nutritious.
Size of the Juicer
Will the juicer fit on your kitchen counter? The vertical cold pressed juicers will take less space than horizontal juicers.
he best slow juicers have wide feeding chutes which you don’t have to chop the fruits and vegetables into small pieces increasing oxidation. The wide chute also saves you preparation time.
SpeedFor daily juicing needs, you need a juicer that extracts juice quickly. Though slow-pressed juicers are slower than centrifugal juicers, there is a caveat to the speed with centrifugal juicers producing low-quality juices. A good masticating juicer runs at low speeds of 80RPM or 48 tour/min and produces one cup of juice in about 5 minutes.
You should get a juicer that operates efficiently at low speeds and quietly. You don’t want to wake your neighbours or the kids. Cold press juicers are quieter than centrifugal juicers.
Maintenance and Cleaning
A juicer that is easy to clean and maintain has few parts for you to assemble and disassemble making cleaning a breeze. Look through user reviews to determine the juicer’s ease of cleaning. There are juicers with dishwasher-safe parts and others have self-cleaning features.
It is important to check the country of origin and of what material the juicer is made up of. Stainless steel juicers are more durable than plastic ones. You may also want to consider the BPA-free Tritan for the environment and health.
