Kuvings NJE-3580U Masticating Slow Juicer - Cold Press Juicer

Types of Juicers

There are two main types of juicers used these days, cold press juicers and centrifugal juicers. There asre some key differences between the two which we will go over in more depth below.

Cold Press Juicers: A cold press juicer, also known as a masticating juicer or slow juicer, is a type of juicer that uses a slow masticating process to separate the juice from the flesh of the different fruits and vegetables that you juice. These types of juicers are typically more expensive than centrifugal juicers but they are well worth it. The juice from a cold press juicer can be stored longer, retains more of the vitamins and nutrients from the fruits and veggies you juice and produces more juice from the same amount of fruits and vegetables.

Additionally, many cold press juicer models are able to double as a food processor and process foods such as nut butters, baby foods, pasta and rice cakes.

The downsides are that it will usually take longer to make your fresh juice due to the slow masticating process and the clean up of the more advanced models.

Centrifugal Juicers: Centrifugal juicers on the other hand do a quick job of juicing and clean up is typically much easier than with a slow masticating juicer.

I am a long time juicer and nutritional consultant. I believe in the health benefits of juicing and want to bring you all the latest information on juicing and juicers.
