Not all juicers are created equal.
Masticating Juicers (SLOW JUICERS) are miles apart when compared to centrifugal Juicers (FAST JUICERS). Understanding the main differences is CRUCIAL and it will help you decide which is best for you and your family.
Since we will not be making the decision for you (of course), you’ll have to choose for yourself based on these points:
Mode of Operation
Centrifugal Juicers grate the fruit or vegetable at very high speeds to make pulp and use centrifugal force to juice it.
Masticating juicers on the other hand are known as “slow juicers” because they operate using a system of augers or gears slowly revolving to squeeze the juice out from vegetables and fruits.
Because of high operating RPM, centrifugal juicers are noisier compared to masticating juicers. The noise centrifugal juicers produce is a good indicator of how much friction is being applied to extract the juice.
Masticating Juicers tend to score high in terms of yield when juicing green and leafy vegetables such as spinach, wheatgrass, parsley, lettuce, and other herbs. This higher yield is due to the way it extracts juice.
Centrifugal juicers beat masticating juicers when speed is considered. The high RPM in which centrifugal juicers operate is just too much for masticating juicers to take.
So if you don’t have lots of time to juice, go ahead and buy a centrifugal juicer. But if you want more yield WITH fresher quality, then I suggest you start looking for a Masticating Juicer now.
If you were to ask me, Slow Juicers do have the upper hand when it comes to quality of juice. They do cost a bit more than centrifugal juicers but I certainly think it’s way worth the investment.
