Centrifugal or Masticating? What is Best?

Posted by Raymond McDowell on

If you have been into juicing for a while - or - if you are the kind of person that investigates in detail before making a purchase, you probably have heard this question asked and debated before. Maybe you have read many of the blogs about the differences already. Well, whether or not you have already had the experience, I am going to give you another one.

Look, it is simple enough. Centrifugal Juicers cost less than Masticating Juicers - (usually). So, if budgetary concerns are yours, get the Centrifugal model you like and get juicing. If budget is not a prime consideration, then look at the other factors before you decide.

BUT - in any case, do not delay getting into juicing regardless of what type you are going to choose! The amazing benefit from juicing is the easy and tasteful way you get nutritious and vitamin filled produce into your body! Delaying the start is not what you should do. Get eating (drinking) healthy and give your body a boost that will make you feel better and more energetic than you thought possible. Juicing is GREAT!

Here is a picture of a typical Centrifugal Juicer:

This Hamilton Beach Juicer is available at "Juicers For Your Home" located at: www.mlrsupply.com and retails for $79.99 - but "Juicers For Your Home" includes shipping and handling and sells it for $74.99 

So, you can see this type of juicer - and a good quality one - is reasonable in price.

Look over my list of Pro's and Con's for the typical centrifugal juicer below;

PROS

Reasonable Cost       Easy to Operate       Fast - produces juice quickly

Multiple Speed Selection for hard or soft Produce       Large Pulp Bin - handy

CONS

Loud - high decibel level       Juice Quality not as high as Masticating

Doesn't handle soft produce or Leafy Greens well

 

Here is a picture of a typical Masticating Juicer:

Masticating Juicer - Typical

This KOIOS Juicer is available at "Juicers For Your Home" located on the web at: www.mlrsupply.com and retails for $199.98 - but "Juicers For Your Home" includes Shipping and Handling fees and sells it for $119.99

So, you can see this type of juicer is more expensive than the Centrifugal.

Look over my list of PROS and CONS for this type of juicer:

PROS

Produces more juice per piece of produce       Quiet - much lower decibels

Improves the quality of the juice       Handles soft produce and leafy greens best

Cleans easier

CONS

Slower Operation of Juicing       More Expensive to Buy Initially

Smaller Feeder Tube - more prep time for Produce 

But, after all the comparisons are made and done, remember that whichever type of juicer you decide on, please get into juicing as soon as you can!

The benefits from giving your body fresh vitamins and nutrients should not be delayed. Once you get into this juicing and make it a habit for your family, you will not want to miss feeling the way you do. Believe me - IT IS A BLAST!!
