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 juicers. There are many different types of juicing machines out there and of course every manufacturer claims to be selling the best juicers on the market, so reaching a decision on what to buy is no small task.
Part of our effort involves building up a database of reviews of juicers, 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 is a juicer without a good juicer 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 recipes for juicers.
Let me again stress that statement is based on our experiences and the trials we have done to compare juicers available in the market. There’s a lot of good juicers out there and we will do our very best to help you find the one suited to your personal juicing needs!
Prior to purchasing a juicer, you should try and establish what factors are of the most importance to you and your juicing.
Consult the list below for some inspiration:
- Juicing speed
- Level of noise produced by unit
- Ease of cleaning juicer
- Type of warranty / length
- What kind of produce you will use for juicing
Juicing fruits? Juicing vegetables?
The reason why the perfect juicer is hard to find is in large part due to the hugely different properties that exist in fruits and vegetables. A juicing method perfectly suited for one type may be rendered useless when it comes to juicing 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 juice that’s simple not pleasant to consume.
When juicing vegetables, you are dealing with fibrous cell walls that are much tougher and call for more powerful juicing equipment then when working with fruit. There are more details to divulge but we try and address those in the reviews of the juicers, 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
Let’s make 2013 the ‘year of the juice’ !!
