Juicers are becoming a must have item in the modern household, with many people choosing to make their own juice out of fresh produce for increased health benefits. People are prowling the internet looking for juicer reviews and of course recipes for juicing. There are many different types of machines out there and of course every manufacturer claims to be selling the best one on the market, so reaching a decision on what to buy is no small task.
We are a couple setting out on a path of improving our diet through these very practices and learning all the relevant things, such as how to distinguish between centrifugal and masticating juicers! There’s a lot of stuff to take in and we thought it could be of benefit to us and other like minded people to dedicate a website to this fascinating topic. We won’t tell you outright which particular brand or model of machine is the best – rather provide you with the resources you need to decide for yourself and make an informed purchase.
Juicer reviews and juice recipes
Part of our effort involves building up a database of reviews, for which we rely on the assistance of friends and acquintances. We are also hoping that visitors and users of the site will chip in, stay tuned for some additional features relating to that idea.
Lets not forget the recipes, what use would an expensive juice extractor be without a good recipe! So expect to see an archive being built up steadily and we of course encourage all our fellow juicing enthusiasts to please send in their favorite concoctions. We’re all in this together and we can learn so much from each other.
Best juicers on the market, does a simple answer to this question exist? Frankly (in our opinion) the answer is no. To elaborate, think first of what you want to extract the sap from. Do you want to juice fruits? Or do you want to process vegetables? (most of us want a bit of both). Are they soft, are they hard – I could go on.
So much depends on what the machines are designed to take on. Of course, many of them try and strike a balance and handle most juicing tasks you could think to throw at the machine, but as far as we can tell there is no perfect juicer out there. At least not yet but maybe they’re working on it!
Let me again stress that statement is based on our experiences and the trials we have done to compare the devices available in the market. There’s a lot of good makers and models out there and we will do our very best to help you find the one suited to your personal juicing needs! Don’t rush into this investment, it is important to take time to contemplate the options – rather than regret the choice you made.
Prior to purchasing a juicer, you should try and establish what factors are of the most importance to you and your personal needs.
Consult the list below for some inspiration:
- Processing speed
- Level of noise produced by the unit
- Ease of cleaning (very important to some)
- Type of warranty / and length
- What kind of produce you will use for juicing
Juicing fruits? Juicing vegetables?
The reason why the perfect tool is hard to find is in this very niche is in large part due to the hugely different properties that exist in fruits and vegetables. A method perfectly suited for extracting the nectar of one type may be rendered useless when it comes to processing the next. The soft cell walls of most fruits call for a gentle method of juice extraction.
Some fruits can then be juiced as a whole with peel but you will find that citrus fruits such as grapefruit and oranges have a very bitter peel and juicing a whole orange would yield something that’s quite simply not pleasant to consume.
When extracting from vegetables, you are dealing with fibrous cell walls that are much tougher and call for more powerful equipment then when working with fruit. There are more details to divulge but we try and address those in the reviews of the devices we write about, rather then attempt to answer everything in one place – it would make for a VERY long page and a difficult read!
Have fun browsing the site and good luck with the juicing 🙂
Note: We are now in our third year of operating the site and have had great fun and made some amazing friends along the way. There’s no doubt that a worldwide awakening is happening and its great to be part of it. Here’s hoping many more are yet to join us and change their life to the better with the help of what mother nature herself provides to us.
Let’s make 2019 the ‘year of the juice’ !!
