Keep up the good work. It is such a great idea to make the change from store-bought juice to fresh juice. Its large feeding chute and juice processing for long time is best feature of this machine. You can also make nut butters, baby food, healthy sorbets and pasta with it too. Efficiency of this machine is very good it does not heat up and makes less foam and clogging during juice processing. Main reason that customer gave this machine good rating then tribest is less price with good features. I have no idea about the what where and why of juicer machines in Nigeria, that is far outside my reach!!
Best Juicer: Juicing Carrots, Apples, or Leafy Greens and Kale?
You are what you eat!!! Since the other types juice leafy greens better, does that mean there are some recipes I should avoid with my juicer? The Jack LaLanne was the very first juicer that we got, we have other juicers that we use too, but we still use the Jack LaLanne also. Wheatgrass and herbs are way to thin to be juiced at all in the Jack LaLanne, and will effectively produce no juice.
I am thinking of purchasing the Kuvings Multi-Purpose Masticating Juicer because it seems to be more in my price range. Do you think this will be effective since its still a masticating juicer but not one of the top 3 you have recommended? I have not tried the Kuvings Masticating Juicer yet, but it looks like a cute machine. I read the reviews on amazon. The main review that caught mu attention was a 3 star review.
I have the juicer but was watching some videos on juicing but they used a high powered blender and said that was better due to the fact you use everything and where the juicer leaves behind all the pulp. So I bought a commercial blender the Omega one and tried it today with carrots and spinach and apple and it did not do very good in blending anything together … I dont know if I did something wrong but anyway had to take everything out of blender then I put it thru my juicer and got the results I wanted… disappointed about the blender though, maybe that will be better just for fruits.
Would the additiol coast to upgrade to an Omega really be beneficial if I am truly looking for the best juicer for the nutritional value? Appreciate your candid reply thanks, Marty. When you say Omega , do you mean Omega ? I am not sure what the Omega is, it looks like there is an Omega series, but they are blenders.
If you are talking about the Omega masticating juicer, then it definitely provides more nutrition than the Breville JE98XL, or any of the Breville juicers because they are all centrifugal machines. All the same, centrifugal machines still produce nutritious healthy juice, it is just that the masticating machines produce even more nutritious juice, especially when it comes to antioxidants and enzymes.
So if the most nutrition is what you are aiming for then an Omega juicer machine will trump the Breville. However, the triturating juicer machines, such as the Green Power Juicer, produce a little more nutrition than the masticating machines,and produces the most nutritious juices. Ultimately, all types of juicing machines produce health-promoting nutritious juice, but if you want to get into finer detail and maximum nutrition then masticating and triturating machines are the way to go!
My only question is… my kids and I are used to a sweeter juice, so to get them to drink the OJ that I made last night I had to add some honey but was wondering if anyone had any suggestions for making it a healthy sweet! I think there might have been some tart oranges in the bag that I bought!! Again, love this particular site. I know, I know….
Do they get lost with the process from manufacturing and displays on grocers shelves? This process can also add chemicals into the mix. Antioxidants including vitamin C , and enzymes are the most effected by the processing methods.
I am expecting my Super Angel to show up in the mail tomorrow — my first juicer but I went ahead and bit the bullet. My questions to you is — would you agree? You seem to promote the Green Power — any reason why? Kurt — I really like both of them, and you will see that I promote them both on this page, it is just the price range is not realistic for everyone.
Hello, I just purchased the juice extractor by ge it is a two speed watt juicer. I am new to this, will this machine do what is needed? Thanks for your time. Hi Leah, it is not a juice extractor that I have used first hand, but I see a few people on youtube have been using it successfully, so it looks like it does the job!
Any advice on the other Breville juicers? Hi Kim, TO be honest with you, I think the Breville company makes the best centrifugal juicer, and I would definitely by the Breville compact juice fountain rather than the Jack Lalanne Juicer. While my Jack Lalanne juicer has done well, there has been enough people complaining that their motor burns out, not a complaint I have seen with the Breville machines.
In fact I may have to adjust this page to reflect this information. Hi, i currently own a breville centrifugal juicer, that i want to replace with a vitamix blender due to the benefit of getting the pulp. So after reading this interesting article i am confused. If you want the benefit of the pulp and its rich fiber content then you definitely want to go with a vitamix-blender. It had great reviews, comparable to the much pricier Breville. I love the juicer, it puts out a great amount of juice.
Yay for a good price to have really good health benefits! Wondering if you knew how significant the nutrient loss through oxidation is if I juice in the morning and consume it 5 hours later. Which one is better or do you have another reference. Thank you for you help. I would like to buy a centrifugal juice extractor.
Can you give your opinion for these models: If you have another model to suggest,please do. Hi,pls i want to start a natural juice making kitchen in my country with fruits like oranges,apple,water lemons,etc.
What kind of juice extractor should i go based on the durability,speed, less noise and more nutitious juice for my customers. Can the single auger and twin gear machines be used instead of a vitamix, so long as they have the homogenizing function? I have been thinking about getting a vitamix for some time, to make smoothies, nut milks and to blend things more thoroughly than my food processor.
Seems like a single auger juicer may be easier to clean than a vitamix. I think I understand what you mean! Do not buy the Jack Lalane. I have one and the piece that blade screws onto is made of plastic and it broke. We tried to glue it together so I would not have to buy a new one and it worked one more time and now its broke again and it can not be fixed. Of course there is a 10 year warranty but that is on the motor not the plastic piece that is attached to the motor well, I can buy the part I need because they sell it but the part must be the entire motor.
After researching this I found that many many people have had this issue with their Jack Lalane Juicer. So I have decided not to buy the part and instead find me a better product. Do your research this is a great investment but like any investment it must be researched for a better outcome..
Hey i was thinking about buying the Jack Lallane Powerjuicer. Would it be a complete waste being that the nutrient, antioxidant and enzymes are very low? Should I hold out for a more effective juicer? The Jack LaLanne Power Juicer is a centrifugal style juicer machine as are all the breville juicer machines. Centrifugal juicer machines still create very nutritious drinks, it is just that masticating juicers and triturating juicers create even more nutritious drinks, especially when it comes to antioxidants.
My very first juicer was a Jack LaLanne Juicer, but if I knew then what I know now, then I would hold out for a masticating machine, but all the same I was still enjoying healthy juice with the Jack LaLanne!
What about the Ninja Kitchen System ? I saw it on an infomercial and it seemed to be quite loud but it does total jucing. Blenders also make awesome and healthy drinks, but I am only reviewing juicer machines on this page.
I was not aware of the differences in juicers, nor had I even heard of a triturating juicer before. I have an old school Jack LaLanne Junior and need an upgrade, so your webite has proven quite helpful. I am new to juicing and want to make a purchase. The Green Power Juicer is a high-quality juicing machine. Check out this link to learn more about Juicing vs Blending. Hello Darren and Veronica, Thank you for taking your time to help other people get educated about juicing.
Your website is great. I am very new to this concept and I would like to permanently incorporate juicing into my lifestyle for weigh loss and over-all health. But I have also read of the virtues of wheatgrass and that I should have a machine that handles it, and apparently the Breville does not.
How important is wheatgrass in a healthy diet, and how important is it for a machine that can juice wheatgrass? Also, is there any thoughts that you may have regarding the intense speed of this machine rpm and the warning that high speed creates heat and therefore kills some of the benefits of the juice?
Thank you for any thoughts you may have to guide me and many others through this confusing maze. I am glad you brought up these points because they are a source of confusion for those new to juicing or buying their first juice extractor.
The high speed of the Breville Juice Fountain and all centrifugal based juice extractors does create heat that will kill some nutrition. However, juice is so nutritious that even with some nutrients destroyed there is still a plethora of nutrients left over.
So the juice created by these machines is still very beneficial, no doubt about it. However, as you stated the Breville and all centrifugal juicers cannot juice wheatgrass, the mechanism used and the speed that they juice at cannot extract the juice from something as thin as wheatgrass.
They can extract some juice from some thicker leaves like that of kale, spinach, etc, but are not so effective at this. These centrifugal machines are best used for solid items like apples, carrots etc. If you want to juice all sorts of fruits and vegetables, including leafy greens, wheatgrass and even herbs then a masticating or triturating juice extractor is the way to go.
If you are looking for good juicer with less price then you will not think about colors. This juicer is much heavier than other slow juicer because its weight is 23 pound. So this heavy weight will not affect you. Kuvings NJEU is also popular among juicer lovers. There are many good reason to select it for our top best slow juicer of list. Best thing is this machine is cheaper than our top 3 best juicers with less weight and good performance. Difference is huge but it works well for juices.
Kuvings NJEU is good in many ways, one of the main reason is that this is the cheapest juicer in our top list with list. Our top juicer omega is also behind on giving such number of accessories. Only our top best juicer omega j gives such low rpm. Low rpm means this juicer extract each and last drop from fruits and vegetables slowly.
Low rpm also makes this machine less heat up during juicing process and gives juice full of nutrition. This machine comes with less warranty time period which is 5 years lowest among all juicers. Besides less warranty this juicer is durable more than 15 years. Kuvings NJEU is the lightest juicer among our top list which makes this juicer easy to take during traveling.
Its weight is 17 pound which is less than our top 1 st best masticating juicer omega j This juicer can be easily placed at 2 if it does not have some drawback which pushes its ranking down to 4 position.
Its plastic body is not as strong as others like omega j or tribset. But you can purchase these nozzles again on amazon. Another thing which we observed during our research on top rated masticating juicer is that this machine wastes some of the pulp during juice processing. Omega is best company in producing juicers that is the reason which makes another omega juicer Omega NC in our top 5 position.
Omega has many others models of juicers who is good but omega j is better than many models. Many good models which omega has made are , etc. Slow rpm allow juicer to extract last drop of juice from carrots, apple, cucumber, wheat grass, leafy grass etc. Omega NC ensure that pulp is dry so that all enzymes and nutrition remain in the food.
A good feature which j does not give is its larger feeding chute. If you want to make juice from orange without cutting and you want to cut extract juice from cucumber with less pieces then this omega model give you best result. If you are looking to grind, chop or extract juice without cutting the fruits then you need this juicer which has larger chute than any other juicer in our top list. This machine is costly then its j variant. This machine is less popular among people because omega gives a better version omega j which is best value for money.
Its customer reviews are which is less than its better omega model j Consumers who bought this model is happy to have it and they say it is durable. Efficiency of this machine is very good it does not heat up and makes less foam and clogging during juice processing. Omega NC is good machine than centrifugal juicers and many other top juicer when we talk about foam and clogging.
Another difference between j and Omega NC is colour option. Omega NC comes with only 2 colours while j is still dominant on color option. While we were doing research on top juicer we found that many people wants to buy best juicer but they have very tight budget. So people with tight budget can decide which best possible option available in their budget is. Quality is our top priority. We divided budget into two broad categories. It has almost all main feature that our top 5 models. Argus Le is lightest juicer with 7.
This light weight juicer makes this machine easier to travel. All other 2 models gives 1 year warranty. It shows that argus le is committed about its after sales services. Argus le slow masticating juicer does not produce more noise because its rpm is 65 which makes him slow juicer with less noise.
All our top 5 masticating juicer are 80 or above 80 rpm but this machine has lowest rpm then top 5 juicers. Another benefit of low rpm is that this juicer extract last drop of juice from fruits and vegetables. Another nice feature that helps us a lot to make it on 1 st position in under is that this machine comes with large 3 inch chute.
This large mouth makes this machine to extract juice from a tomato, orange without cutting into piece which no other juicer gives. If you are worried that your children will injured while cutting orange into pieces then this juicer is for you.
Lowest rpm makes machine to run without heating up. This juicer can run for 15 minutes without heating up. Argus Le comes with large number of accessories including brush, filters, pulp cups, bowl, pusher etc. People give this juicer pretty well reviews. You can make butter from nuts after little effort. This machine comes with 3 color option while all other come with 2 or single colour. In our top 5 juicer only omega gives 8 colors while all other juicer come with 2 colors.
Vermi is better in giving color option. A nice feature we found that it has reverse function. This juicer often clogged for which reverse function makes it more easily to get rid of clogging in seconds.
This machine is easier to clean then other. Due to vertical shape and sloppy surface it can be easily cleaned. This machine is the cheapest but come with good quality. People who bought this juicer never regret because in such cheap price this is good value for money.
Its weight is 11 pound. This juicer is still lighter than our top 5 best masticating juicers. We did not compromise on quality. Chefmos is good value for money and more durable juicer. Trend of people to buy Chefmos is increasing day by day. This juicer comes with 80 rpm which makes this machine slow masticating juicer. A good thing about Chefmos is that this machine is quietest machine with 60 db sound. If you are looking for a juicer to extract juice in the morning so that other wont disturb then this juicer is for you.
The fact that replacement parts are needed because of these part eroding over time means to me that the plastics are quite possibly getting into the juice and extracted pulp. However, as the juicer is primarily to provide juice for my kids, the thought of them ingesting small amounts of plastics over time is unnerving.
All juicing machines recommended by us including Omega use fda approved plastics safe for use with food contact. Juice remains in contact with auger for very small time. The benefits of juicing fresh fruits and vegetables is far away from minimal risk with very small contact time. The only difference between vrthd and vrthd is color. What is the difference between the Omega and the besides price difference? Omega is upgraded model. The main difference is the 15 year warranty and 8x times stronger Ultem Auger.
We feel it is definitely worth it. If money is a major issue then go for Omega instead. Omega is exactly same as Omega except color. Omega is white, is chrome plated. Omega price is same as Omega plus you get 5 year longer warranty and a 8x stronger auger.
Omega and are identical save for color white or chrome color they are both a grade up from the which is same as except color and price. Which one is a better juicer for juicing greens like kale or wheatgrass? If you want to juice mostly leafy greens then Omega would be better.
Omega vrthd is recommended for juicing a little of everything, hard veggies, fruits and leafy greens. Thank you for your quick reply as I am trying to replace mine today! I juice mostly leafy greens and add some fruits for taste. I mostly use apple, pineapple, pear, papaya, and some hard veggies like carrots. Would do the job fine? I am trying to find the happy medium. Omega is perfect for your needs. It looks like a masticating juicer is the better option. Can ALL fruits and veggies be juiced?
Sorry if this is a silly question! All fruits, veggies, greens including Watermelon, Grapefruit, Broccoli can be juiced by a masticating juicer. Cannot tolerate fiber but would like a juicer to extract juice only. Which juicer would you suggest?
