Why go through all the hassle of chopping up fruits and vegetables to get your daily dietary needs? Consider a juicer instead. Juicing is a great way to get all your daily vitamins and minerals in one glass. They’re easy to use and the juice is delicious.
Here are a few tips and hints for choosing a juicer.
There are 3 main types of juicers:
Centrifugal Juicers are the most common and least expensive. They’re a great choice for the beginning juicer. A centrifugal juicer pulps what is put into it and spins the juice down into a glass at high speed. These work great on the harder pieces of produce like carrots but are much less effective with greens like spinach. Since this is the least expensive type of juicer be sure to buy one that has a good warranty.
Single Gear Juicers act a bit like a meat grinder. They chew what’s put in them into a mash. One of the benefits of a single gear juicer is that they extract more juice from the plant. Since this is a screw type masher it operates at lower speeds and the machine will last much longer.
Twin Gear Juicers operate similarly to single gear juicers but instead use two rotating screws to finely mash the pulp. This results in the most efficient of machines. Twin Gear Juicers operate at very low speeds, and extract the most juice from the pulp. Of course they are also the most expensive of the juicer types.
Hopefully these tips and hints for choosing a juicer have helped take some of the guesswork out of just what type to buy.
Once you juice that first glass of your favorite fruit or vegetable you’ll wonder why you waited so long to get a one!
