This makes the centrifugal juicers the fastest of juicers. This preserves a lot more of the living enzymes and antioxidants, producing a juice that is more health promoting. I am new to juicing and want to make a purchase. The main review that caught mu attention was a 3 star review. March 28th, at 4: Manual Press Juicers - Squeezes the juice out of the produce with pressure. Can you give your opinion for these models:
The Jack LaLanne Power Juicer is a centrifugal style juicer machine as are all the breville juicer machines. Centrifugal juicer machines still create very nutritious drinks, it is just that masticating juicers and triturating juicers create even more nutritious drinks, especially when it comes to antioxidants.
My very first juicer was a Jack LaLanne Juicer, but if I knew then what I know now, then I would hold out for a masticating machine, but all the same I was still enjoying healthy juice with the Jack LaLanne! What about the Ninja Kitchen System ? I saw it on an infomercial and it seemed to be quite loud but it does total jucing. Blenders also make awesome and healthy drinks, but I am only reviewing juicer machines on this page.
I was not aware of the differences in juicers, nor had I even heard of a triturating juicer before. I have an old school Jack LaLanne Junior and need an upgrade, so your webite has proven quite helpful.
I am new to juicing and want to make a purchase. The Green Power Juicer is a high-quality juicing machine. Check out this link to learn more about Juicing vs Blending.
Hello Darren and Veronica, Thank you for taking your time to help other people get educated about juicing. Your website is great. I am very new to this concept and I would like to permanently incorporate juicing into my lifestyle for weigh loss and over-all health.
But I have also read of the virtues of wheatgrass and that I should have a machine that handles it, and apparently the Breville does not. How important is wheatgrass in a healthy diet, and how important is it for a machine that can juice wheatgrass? Also, is there any thoughts that you may have regarding the intense speed of this machine rpm and the warning that high speed creates heat and therefore kills some of the benefits of the juice? Thank you for any thoughts you may have to guide me and many others through this confusing maze.
I am glad you brought up these points because they are a source of confusion for those new to juicing or buying their first juice extractor. The high speed of the Breville Juice Fountain and all centrifugal based juice extractors does create heat that will kill some nutrition. However, juice is so nutritious that even with some nutrients destroyed there is still a plethora of nutrients left over. So the juice created by these machines is still very beneficial, no doubt about it.
However, as you stated the Breville and all centrifugal juicers cannot juice wheatgrass, the mechanism used and the speed that they juice at cannot extract the juice from something as thin as wheatgrass.
They can extract some juice from some thicker leaves like that of kale, spinach, etc, but are not so effective at this. These centrifugal machines are best used for solid items like apples, carrots etc. If you want to juice all sorts of fruits and vegetables, including leafy greens, wheatgrass and even herbs then a masticating or triturating juice extractor is the way to go.
So they do produce more nutritious juice. They are a level up from centrifugal machines. Wheatgrass is not by any means essential to a diet, you can get a wonderful range of antioxidants and other nutrients by juicing a variety of fruits and veggies. Thank you for your quick and informative reply. I am amazed at how many choices there are when it comes to juicers.
I can explain in detail the anatomy of the human ear, and the differences between a defense and a , but I am awash in confusion when it comes to the complexities of the juicer market. You provide a tremendous service for all of us trying to live a healthier lifestyle through juicing.
Thank you again for taking your time to provide this service. I watched a youtube. That fact and your comments have me rethinking my choice for a juicer. Can the masticating and triturating machines deal easily with beets and carrots and ginger and things like that? I would prefer to make an investment in something that would be quiet, easy to clean, and as inclusive of the many varieties of fruits and vegetables as possible.
Any suggestions would be helpful. Yep, the Breville is noisy, a little bit like kick starting a motorcycle, but it is super fast. It is a great way to wake the kids up. It is a great machine, and uses magnets and ionizing technology to bring more alkalinity to the juice, which reduces oxidation and increases the shelf-life of the juice. While this and other triturating machines juice beets, carrots, and ginger effectively, producing higher juice yields and nutritional value than both masticating and centrifugal juicer machines, it is harder work to use the triturating machines.
You need to use a bit of muscle to push the tougher vegetables into the twin gears, a little less force is needed for masticating juicers, and less still for centrifugal machines. The Green power Kempo comes with a fruit attachment, for juicing softer fruits, which it does fine. You can also make nut butters, baby food, healthy sorbets and pasta with it too. So it does juice the greatest range of fruits and vegetables, including the thin stuff like wheatgrass and even herbs.
The noise level is considerably less than that of the centrifugal machines. I also find the triturating machines easier to clean than the centrifugal machines since there are no serrated edges.
The metal filter baskets in centrifugal machines also need a bit of a scrub. Triturating machines wash down easier. I just want to thank you again for all your help with my education about juicers. I decided to buy the Omega VRT, and used it for the first time tonight. It worked very well. My only hope now is to get used to the taste of the juice. Yes, I am a grown man, and yes, I did use the word yuck. But I will continue to try different combinations until I find some that I like.
I suppose juicing a jelly donut kind of defeats the purpose right? Anyway, thanks again for your help. You guys rock like a beet! I really like those top-loading masticating juicers. Glad you like it. Wow, what a well done page—loved the you tube feeds also. I feel ready to make the plunge now. I have a Juiceman, and love the juice. I love the quiet of the slow speed, love how much more juice you get etc.
My Juiceman is a very good little machine, it was a fair price and seems pretty solid. I saw on one you tube that I can make muffins and crackers…Not sure I want to open up that old addiction. Could you guys start a pulp page??? Hi, I was just reading through the recommendations on juicers, and honestly this is the best juicing website I have come across. My boyfriend and I are looking into getting our first juicer, slowly making the transition into eating organics,ect.
He seems pretty set on getting a Jack Lalanne juicer saw the infomercial will this work well as a starting out juicer? After reading the reviews I really wanted a masticating one, but it is a little out of the price range. Hello, I am also considering the Jay Kornich juicer. Has anyone had any experience with this product? Hello,not used to juicing but decided since it helps me consume more fruits than I can chew.
Where can I buy the best juice extractor that can juice cane sugar as well. Are these Juicers mentioned available here in Nigeria since i have not seen them around?
The ones I saw were different. I have no idea about the what where and why of juicer machines in Nigeria, that is far outside my reach!! Is a masticator the way to go? Hello, new to the juicing world and have wanted to buy a juicer for a while now.
The only question I have to ask Darren is this, how do you feel about the new Nutribullet? I just need an honest opinion about that product. At the moment im leaning towards the breville but the guy on tv keeps telling me to buy his product haha. Appreciate your timely reply. I have never used the nutribullet but it looks pretty neat and very powerful. However, technically it is a blender and not a juice extractor, and I am not as familiar with blenders.
Hello Darren, It has been so great to find out you blog about juice maker. I am new to juice maker world. I want to buy one to make juice for my family instead of buying commercial juice with preservative. Does one and two gears make MUCH different in juice quality?
