Introduction to Various Types of Juicers
With more people following weight loss programs and opting for healthier lifestyles especially with the aging population, the demand for juicers is on the rise. The juicer market in Canada is flooded with different models suited for individual needs from a simple juice extractor used at homes to heavy duty machines used for pureeing large quantities of fruits and vegetable soups.
How to Choose the Best Juicer Machine?
While choosing a suitable juicer machine, you should keep in mind the features you need for your daily use. Also, consider its maintenance – will it be easy to clean or will an elaborate cleaning procedure deter you from using it regularly? If this is the case then you can opt for a juicer with parts that are dishwasher safe.
If you have limited storage space in your kitchen, you can go for lighter and more compact models. You might also want to pay close attention to its safety features. And finally, make sure the machine you choose has a good warranty.
These are quite popular as you can easily just push the entire fruit or vegetable through the feeding nozzle and the juicer does a quick job extracting the juice and throws out the remaining pulp out the side. The only disadvantage is that it doesn't pull out all the juice out of the fruits and vegetables so there tends to be a small amount of wastage. Consequently, you cannot use them to extract juices from leafy greens or puree fruits like bananas and avocados.
This type of juicer slowly masticates or, in simpler terms, chews the fruits and vegetables to bring out their juices. As a result, the juices they produce are of excellent quality. They are great for extracting juices from leafy greens.
They are designed with an auger with blades that act as the teeth to masticate and then squeeze the juice. Its functions are more versatile than the centrifugal juicers. These juicers homogenize blending fruit sorbets, sauces, nut butters, baby food and ice creams. It is heavier than most juicers and does not look as good as some of the conventional juicers.
Masticating juicers are available in different models for both home and commercial use, usually single geared.
This is an ideal juicer for weight watchers. There are two types of wheatgrass juicers – manual and electric. The electric ones work like masticating juicers, where the juicer crushes the wheatgrass to extract its juice. They are also multi-functional like the masticating juicers. They are a much cheaper option, but like all manual juicers, the juice output depends on your efforts.
