I just bought myself a centrifugal juicer by Breville. Super easy to use, easy to clean and juries fast. As a gadget queen, I also own an Omega masticating juicer and a Cuisinart citrus juicer. The Cuisinart is, as the name implies, fabulous only for making various citrus juicers.
What is the different between a masticating and centrifugal juicer? A masticating juicer grinds (or “chews”) the produce with a series of hard hears and extrudes the juice, yielding very dry pulp and getting the best results for juicing greens. The cons are that it takes prep work to cut the veggies small, operates slowly and is expensive. The pros is that the unit can also be used to make pasta and sorbet, so it’s not a unitasker.
A centrifugal juicer works with a spinning blade that cuts the produce and spins it really fast against a mesh sieve, which strains out the juice. It’s pulp is wetter and yields less juice, especially with regard to greens. It is very easy to use, clean and inexpensive though it is a total unitasker.
In a pinch, you could process all of these fruits and veggies in a high powered blender or food processor with a little water and strain out the juice with a fine mesh sieve.
This juice is full of antioxidants, minerals, vitamins, ani-inflammatory agents and FLAVOR. Fresh juice is the most ridiculously delicious juice I have ever had. You will love it and it will be your go to post-workout reward. Enjoy!
