Masticating Juicer

The Single Gear Masticating Juicer is a newer approach in juicer market. It operates by using a single gear or auger that literally chews up the fruit into pulp. Unlike the centrifugal juicer, a masticating juicer operates at a much lower speed at about 80 ~ 120 RPM, producing minimal heat and least air oxidation which does not disrupt the cellular structure of the fruits and vegetables.

This eliminates oxidation to the juices, therefore, preserving most the precious enzymes and nutrients. Some models can even be used for vegetable juicing , thus making it a good kitchen companion. However, this type of juicer usually comes at a higher price. You can read my guide on how to choose the best vegetable juicer here.
