What to Look for When Buying a Juicer

Investing in juicer is helping you in long term vitality, energy and health care. Juicer come in many price ranges but if your usage is more it is better to invest in little expensive models.

It is always better to check all the factors before making a final decision. It is important to set up your own criteria and select one best model.

Below are Some Important Factors that You Should Consider

1. Feeder Tube Size:

Choose a juicer with wide feeding tube that can accommodate a whole fruits and vegetables, If the tube is small it will take lot of time for you to dice them and fit the tube of juices. This helps in reducing the preparation time.

2. Multiple Speeds:

It is better to choose a model that comes with multiple speed settings. Slow speeds are suitable for juicing soft fruits. And higher speeds are beneficial for hard food produce like carrots, beetroot, coconut and others. Because more motor power is required to break down the fibers of hard produce.

3. Pulp Ejection:

Juicing of fruits and vegetables definitely gives you some leftover pulp and some amount of skin. Few juicers collect the pulp externally in a separate collector specifically sized for it, or collect in an internal basket. External pulp ejection system helps you to juice large quantities continuously instead of stopping your machine, opening it and emptying the basket.

4. Yield Amount:

Masticating juicers extract more yield because of its slow processing method. If you want to know whether maximum pulp is extracted or not, you can check the pulp. Drier the pulp is; better the outcome is – because maximum juice is extracted. If the pulp is wet and drippy, then it indicates the inefficiency of the juicer.

5. Juice container:

In order to avoid splashes while juicing, most of the juicers come with juice container – which is specifically designed to match the spout. If the juicer doesn’t come with a juice container, then the juicing process can be messy.

6. Cord length and storage:

More flexibility and portability can be achieved if the cord is up to four feet or more. Models with longer cords have a way to conceal cord when not in use. Juice extractors are available in a variety of shapes, colours and sizes. Compact juicers are easy to store and don’t have much parts to clean, and are apt for the people who have limited kitchen space.

7. Noise:

It is better to avoid models that make loud noise. Blender juicers and centrifugal juicers are the noisiest ones as they run on higher rpm (ranging from 5000 to 15000). If you want to know whether the model you choose is noisy or not, then check the rpm. If the rpm is higher, then noise will be high as well. And vice versa.

8. Easy to use:

 The usage of the juicer should be simple and easy. Juicers that have lesser parts and wider tube will make the preparation and cleaning easy. Compared to horizontal type juicers, compact juicers like centrifugal and vertical masticating are easy to use.

9. Easy to clean:

Buying a juicer that takes lot of time to clean will discourage you to use it each time, the juicer that takes lesser time to clean keeps you motivated to use the device regularly.

Twin gear juicers and horizontal cold press juicers are time consuming as they have several parts depending on each model. Centrifugal juicer comes with few parts to clean, cleaning the cutting disk and mesh screen is a task.

Vertical masticating juicers can be cleaned easily as they don’t have lot of parts and mostly are dishwasher safe.

Considering if the juicer is dishwasher safe or no will save lot of energy and time.

10. Beginner or Veteran?

Compared to a regular user, beginner will give priority to different things like reasonably priced, speedy function or easy to assemble. Advanced user will go for the details and long-standing effect of their purchase.

11. Brand:

Some juicer brands provide good customer service. But you have to be careful with other brands. Before purchasing the product, make sure to check out their customer reviews for service and their response to any queries or repairs. And also make sure they fulfill their warranty claims.

12. Price:

Price of the best juicer maker depends on the machine type, brand and extra features machine have. Compared to masticating models the centrifugal juicer types are cheaper ones. Before buying the product compare the prices of different models and brands.

Always try to invest in premium quality juicer than less quality juicers. Because less quality juicers may not give you same quality in the long run. So, it is better to invest initially in a high quality juicer as they will last long.

13. Warranty:

Make sure to check out and verify what all are included and what all are not included as some manufacturers are vague to the warranty they give. Centrifugal juicers offer 1 year warranty and both masticating and twin gear juicers offers 15 years warranty.
