Some Tips for Selecting a Reliable Centrifugal Juicer

Breville-JE900Juicing is a great way to quickly get your recommended daily allowance of fruits and vegetables. The most common units available today, the ones you’ll typically see in a department store or on a late-night infomercial, are centrifugal juicers.

The way a centrifugal juicer works is to use a rapidly rotating blade to chop fruits and vegetables to a pulp and the centrifugal force will separate the juices from the fibers. A centrifugal juicer will do a great job of extracting juice from most fruits and vegetables but they will struggle with some leafy greens like kale, wheatgrass etc.

An alternative option would be a masticating juicer that uses a slowly rotating auger to grind and squeeze fruits and vegetables to extract the juices. A masticating juicer will do a better job with leafy green vegetables but they are slower and if you are pressed for time a centrifugal juicer may be a better option.

I’ve looked into a number of different models and two of the best centrifugal juicers that I have found are the Champion Juicer G5-NG853S and the Breville JE900 Juice Fountain Professional Juice Extractor. Both of these models have received extremely high user ratings on various shopping websites and both of them have very powerful motors to extract juice quickly.

The Champion Juicer is capable of continuous operation without jamming or without pausing to clean the unit until you’re finished juicing. The Breville JE900 is not only fast and powerful but is also a very quiet machine. Both models have large diameter feeding tubes to accommodate larger fruits and vegetables.

The best way to find a good quality juicer is to have a look at reviews from people that have purchased and used a particular model that you might be considering. Seeing what actual customers have to say about the various models gives you a very good idea about whether it will be something that works for you. Fortunately for us the Internet makes getting this type of feedback fast and easy and it really helps you to make an informed decision.
