About Juicers

Anyone shopping for juicers knows that there is conflicting advice about which category of juicer to get. We recommend purchasing two juicers: (1) a slow speed masticating juicer such as the Omega Nutrition Center for about $280, and (2) a single serving blender/juicer like the Magic Bullet NutriBullet or the Nutri Ninja Auto-iQ Blender for about $100 to $150.

Juicer System Benefits and Drawbacks

Each juicer system has benefits and drawbacks:

Masticating juicers have the following features and benefits:

  • Work well at producing juice with very little pulp.
  • Are best at extracting the nutrients from fruits and vegetables while separating out the fiber material.
  • They require more fruits and vegetables to produce a glass of juice.
  • These are known as cold pressed juicers.
  • Many use an auger method to press food through a metal filter.
  • Because of this, mushy foods like ripe banana or soft apples keep moving back into the auger entry.

Blender juicers have the following features and benefits:

  • Create a pulpy drink by using a high speed blending process.
  • Require fewer fruits and veggies per serving.
  • The resulting drinks have helpful fiber, but aren’t as nutrient dense as the juice produced by masticating juicers.
  • The are typically faster at producing a serving of juice than a masticating juicer.
  • They are a little easier to clean up.
  • They work well with soft ripe foods.
  • They work well with ice, frozen wheat grass, frozen bananas, and other foods.
