What to Look for When You Buy A Juicer
If you want to buy a juicer to improve your diet and your nutrition then you have made a very smart decision for your health. Juicing your way to better nutrition and health can also make you feel better and it can improve your appearance.
If the time has come to add some natural fresh juices to your daily health regimen then buying a juicer can help you to achieve that end. Juicing reviews over the Internet are a good place to look for tips as to what type of juicer to purchase. They will also give you ideas about what other customers’ experiences with juicers have been. The same can be said for juicing books.
What you need to know before you make such a purchase is that every juicing machine is not the exact same. There are some companies that are a little underhanded and make claims that are either misleading to consumers or are simply not true about the juicers they sell.
However there are other companies that are very honest and have integrity in their selling. They sell juicers that can more than do the job that they were created to do. When you buy a juicer you are making an investment in your health and by so doing improving the quality of your health and your life. You deserve to do this for yourself!
Before you purchase a juicer (also sometimes called a juicing machine or a juicing processor) you need to know what you are looking for. Ask questions and do thorough research so that when the time comes you will make the wisest decision possible.
If you have never enjoyed cleaning your blender then you will not enjoy cleaning a juicer much more! The difficulty involved in cleaning a juicer is one of the disadvantages of owning this kitchen appliance. It may make nutritious drinks but it can be frustrating to get clean afterwards!
If cleaning the juicer is too much work then in the long-term juicing is not a practice that you will continue with. That is why one of the requirements for your juicer should be that it can be disassembled easily and can be cleaned without a lot of effort. Some juicers can even be placed in the dishwasher.
The yield for the juicer is how much it is capable of producing. If you find a juicer that you like but its yield of juice is not that much then look for another juicing machine that will provide a higher yield for you. You do not want to waste your money on a juicer that cannot deliver what you need the most.
To find out about the yield before you buy the juicing processor take a look at the product specifications. This should tell you how much juice you are likely to get in comparison to the amount of pulp that will be left over.
Different Types of Juicers
There are a variety of juicers that you can choose from. The options include:
- Centrifugal juicers
- Masticating juicers
- Hydraulic press juicers
The centrifugal juicers are such that the juice that is made must be drunk right away as oxidation can set in if the juice is allowed to sit. This can degrade the nutritional value of the natural beverage.
The masticating juicers are low speed juicers that produce juices of the highest quality.
Hydraulic press juicers produce the highest nutrient juices of the three because the amount of oxidation is very little.
Know all you need to about the warranty of a juicer before you buy it. Some warranties are only for a couple of years while others extend to a 10 year period. As well some juicer warranties are for the entire processor while others only cover the motor. The longer the warranty the better it is for you the customer.
