When you start out working with a juicing machine you want to make sure to have a high quality unit without any problems with it. There are both objectively better or worse machine on the market, but there are of course also purely subjective choices concerning what you prioritize, what you will use it for, et cetera.
A vital question for many who are considering buying a juicing machine is of course the price tag, but there are many other concerns, such as quality of the machine and of the end product, pure appearance, and the healthiness of the extracted juice.
Pricing for High Quality Juicers
When it comes to pricing, you want to make sure to stay clear of the cheapest models – while it might seem like a good idea at the time, the truth is that a cheap machine is likely to cost you more in the long run, as it won’t last as long and will risk breaking down and result in you needing to get a new one at extra cost.
It might also surprise you how much of a difference there is between a small price jump from a $35 to a $50 model – this is actually where there’s quite a difference from model to model, and the pricing is a good way of getting a hint of the quality. You want to avoid models under the $30 mark at least, and you should probably even get up to at least $50 or $70 before you can call it a really good juicing machine that will last for some time.
The Breville BJE200XL is a good example of a really high quality device for around $100, while the Hamilton Beach 67608 is an example of a good cheaper model at around the $50 mark.
The State of the Art Juicers
As in any market there are of course the real state of the art models that cost more but also deliver more – the device can go up in price to hundreds of dollars, and there is a vast difference in quality. For a juicing fanatic, you haven’t really lived until you consumed a glass of delicious juice from an Omega J8006 juicer or a VRT350.
Apart from simply being of better quality, these more expensive models also have other pros such as keeping more of the nutrients and antioxidants in the juice. They also often allow you to do other things such as make baby food, extrude pasta, and grind coffee. So while they might be a more expensive purchase themselves, they can save you a lot of money if you’re thinking of getting other kitchen machines in the future. A multi functional tool can also save you tons of cabin / counter space, so yeah, it pays to think these things all the way through.
So in the end, there is actually a wide selection on the market. Which one you get is of course a both complicated and personal question, and there is no one answer – but we do of course hope the above information helps guiding you to the decision that is right for you.
