The 5 Things You Must Consider Before Purchasing a Juicer



Each juicer available in the market these days has its own pros and cons. However, simply knowing about their features will not be enough in making the best choice when it comes to purchasing a juicer. You need to consider the juicer from your own point of view.

The Time You Spend On Juicing

Most people do not even realise that they spend a considerable amount of time on juicing. Apart from the ingredient preparation, you need time to juice and then clean the appliances immediately. Therefore, purchase a juicer according to the time you can spend on juicing. Manual juicers or centrifugal juicers can operate quickly. In most cases, you need around 15 minutes. Masticating juicers are not only fast, they can be cleaned just as easily. The other kind of juicers takes up a lot of time in producing your beverages.

The Items That Will Be Juiced

The better juicers are capable of extracting the juices from not only fruits but also vegetables. Triturating juicers are quite powerful thanks to their twin gear system. They are capable of crushing even the toughest vegetable into a pulp. These juicers can take care of the more difficult parts such as seeds, rinds and cores. If you prefer green leafy vegetables as juice materials, a masticating or a manual juicer will be enough.

The Storage Time for Your Juice

Not all juicers are capable of preserving the nutrients of the fruits and vegetables during the juicing process. This means, you may have to drink up the juice as soon as you make it with some types of juicers. Other juicers will allow you to store the juice for a longer period of time.


Most centrifugal juicers produce quite a bit of heat during juicing. The heat can oxidise the juice which compromises the freshness and the nutritional value of the juice. If you are planning on storing the juice for a period of time before consumption then you should choose a triturating or a masticating type of juicer. The triturating juicer produces the best quality juices allowing you to store them for nearly 3 days before drinking.

The Quality of the Juice

In order to produce a high quality juice, you need to spend extra time and money. Some juicers can make juice faster. They can be cleaned just as easily. However, the juice produced is not of a high quality. In some cases, they might not even extract the juices completely. If you are concerned about the quality, opt for masticating or triturating juicers. However, they take a lot of time to produce juice and they are quite costly as well.

The Details of the Juicer

A juicer has many additional properties which can affect your use and purchase. Most juicers are quite noisy, especially when they have motors. Durability is another factor to consider. The materials used should be of a high quality. Take a look at the warranties as well.


Choosing a juicer may not be an easy task. However, it will help you get one that is perfect for your needs.
