Masticating juicers need a ton of preparation before juicing. With a centrifugal juicer however, you can feed whole fruits, large chunks of vegetables and be done with juicing in a short time. When juicing oranges, I prefer the Best Citrus Juicer.
The juicer parts are dishwasher safe and take all the hard work out of cleaning the juicer. Only the mesh needs to clean by hand and that is easily done with the cleaning brush provided.
This makes a centrifugal juicer suitable for almost everyone. As juicing took off in a big way in response to living healthy trends, manufacturers have come up with more and improved juicers using latest technology to help you extract maximum juice with minimal loss of nutrition and wastage of produce.
These machines replace the mechanical devices like citrus press and even our hands which was the traditional method of getting at juice. When people fell sick, or children needed extra nutrition juice was the go-to choose. Does a smoothie taste bland, or need to be sweeter? There are any number of sweetening agents like honey, maple syrup, sugar. But if you want to do it naturally then try grapes, dates or banana, watermelon is another sweetening agent, but it can also dilute the smoothie.
When you want a smoothie to be creamy, including an avocado is ideal for adding creaminess to smoothies. Its mild flavor disguises its nutritional wallop. After removing its skin and pit, you can add a whole avocado to your smoothie, or save some for the next day. If you develop a passion for juicing, then you could trade up and buy higher end twin-gear machine. But in the meantime, it's best to pick between a slow masticating juicer and a fast centrifugal juicer to meet your juicing needs.
Horizontal masticating juicers are a great alternative to triturating juicers as they are less complex to operate and provide great yields and don't compromise on nutrition. The juice quality is high, and juice can be stored in the fridge for 72 hours without loss of taste or nutrition. The locking-arm of a fast juicer has to be engaged to operate the juicer. This safety mechanism ensures that you don't switch it by mistake when not ready.
A wider feed tube cuts prep time to almost nil. Large quantities of produce can be juiced at the same time due to the bigger pulp bin and juice collector of this model.
Another convenient thing about the centrifugal juicer is that most parts are dishwasher safe like the Best Citrus Juicer
