So this is where so many people get confused. There are so many different types of juicers. These are the best kinds of juicers you can buy out there.
Cold pressed juicers slowly extract the juice using a mortar and pestle like crushing system. This way all the enzymes, vitamins and minerals are retained. These are the best and most nutritious juicers you can buy. It takes a little longer to juice the fruit and veggies, and you have to do a little more prep but it’s totally worth it.
Go with a Omega Nutrition Center it is the one I use and love. Cold pressed will generally cost a little more, but you pay for quality, better nutrition and the enzymes.
Non Cold Pressed
So these are your standard juicers. They work by kind of grate/shredding the juice out from the food. Not as many minerals, vitamins or enzymes are retained, however it is a lot faster, cheaper and you don’t have to do as much preparation. You can sometimes fit whole apples in them.
Breville is the best brand for this type. Definitely go for one of those. They have a whole range and any of them will do the trick. It’s up to you how much you want to spend on a juicer.
You can spend between $50 – $1000 for a normal juicer. You’ll get a decent one for around the $200 mark. I’ve found the $50 ones to be useless and a pain in the butt to clean.
Here is my workhorse of a juicer a Breville bje200xl 700 watt Compact Juice Fountain that I bring with me when I travel to the cottage, you can see how little room it takes up on my counter top.
Cleaning your Juicer
I have noticed that if it takes more than 5 minutes to clean up after you finish juicing, then many people will not even juice to begin with. Go for a juicer that cleans easy too. This was important when I bought my Vitality 4 Life juicer. Make sure you wash it with natural dishwashing liquid as soon as you’ve finished to make sure it is clean for the next time.
