Masticating juicers literally chew, grind or knead the materials they process into pulp – that’s exactly how masticating juicers work. To extract the maximum amount of juice, these juicers work at a very low speed, the pulp is expelled through a separate outlet while juice can be collected by placing a container under the juicers spout.
These juicers offer higher nutritional value as compared to centrifugal juicers, are more expensive and thus, are ideal for commercial use or athletes, gym goers, raw food fanatics and disease-stricken people who want to release the maximum vitality into their juices. Moreover, you can juice a wider range of items, process foods and make a variety of other recipes e.g. sorbets, ice-cream, nut butter etc.
Masticating juicer reviews generally agree that these types of machine are less messy, less noisy and also easier to clean. A less known, or less talked about benefit of masticating juicing machines is their longer life span, since they work at a low speed and experience much less wear and tear. You’ll see that masticating juicers come with much longer warranties (i.e. up to 15 years) while centrifugals are usually backed by 1 to 5-year warranty.
On the flip side, they are usually more expensive and much slower than the centrifugals. The traditional i.e. horizontal masticating juicers have a hefty footprint and need considerable counter space but some manufacturers have designed vertical masticating juicers that occupy as much space as a compact centrifugal juicer.
