Hi, this is Mike, welcome to my Juicer Reviews site! I love juicing, and I love what a good juicer can do for my health. If you are interested to know more about juicing and how to pick the best juicer to buy for making healthy juice at home, you have come to the right place!
It pays to think about what you would like your juicer to do before you buy one, so here I’ve put in information that might be useful for you to choose the right juicer for yourself. I took the info from my own experience while shopping for the perfect juicer to buy.
How to Choose the Right Juicer
I think there is no single perfect juicer on the market for everyone, since everyone has different needs for a juicer. Some people like to drink only citrus fruit juice, some like to juice vegetables, and some like it all-in-one! That’s why you should think twice before buying the great juicer that someone else is raving about.
And there’s a big difference in the price too. How much are you willing to pay for a decent juicer that fits your needs? We got our Breville juicer for a little less than $300, and it certainly gave us more than its worth!
Anyway, first you have to choose the type of juicer you want:
1. Citrus juicer – A cheap and basic juicer that juices citrus fruits only. ($20 – $100)
2. Centrifugal juicer – The most common juicer around that juices most kinds of fruits and non-leafy vegetables. Very affordable at $50 – $200.
3. Masticating juicer – Single gear masticating juicer; juices most kinds of fruits and vegetables. Can also make mushy foods. ($100 – $350)
4. Triturating juicer – Twin gear triturating juicer; juices all kinds of fruits and vegetables, keeping more of the enzymes in the juice undamaged. Some of them can juice wheatgrass too. ($250 – $950)
5. Wheatgrass juicer – Usually juices wheat grass only, but some newer models can juice fruits as well. ($200 – $800)
I did get a bit confused with all the types earlier, and I spent a long time finding out the difference among them. Well, I’ve compiled the information here for you: Types of Juicers. Or you can click the links above to see the best type of juicer for you, where you can also find my recommended reviews for each type.
