Why Buy A Juicer?
Former juicer shoppers say that buying a juicer is both serious and overwhelming task. As main reasons, they point out: too many brands, too many models, too many colours and designs, and of course, different prices that make the selection quite difficult.
If you are one more interested juicer-buyer with no previous knowledge nor experience that will ensure you the right buying decision, be stress-free because we are here to give you the basic instructions that will lead you to the juicer that will meet all your juicing needs and preferences.
Before starting your quest, you need to know the answer of the following question: ‘What you will need the juicer for?’
Do you need a juicer to replace your daily requirements for fruits and veggies? Do you have a larger family with small kids and you want to provide them the most out of healthy and energized growing up? Or maybe you prefer drinking fresh juice instead of eating the whole produce? Identifying the answers to these questions will give you a clearer picture of what you are getting into and why.
Over the years, juicing has significantly increased its popularity and the sales of juicers have been also increasing at the same pace. Today, there are two most prevalent types of juicers that firmly hold the international market: the centrifugal juicer and the masticating juicer. Each has its own special features and purposes, so once you have determined your juicing needs, you will have to think of the model that will ideally match them. To complete this task successfully, you should think of the following:
Frequency Of Use – If you are new to juicing and you do not know how frequently you are going to use the juicer, or you will use it only for you and your partner, consider buying a smaller and cheaper all-purpose juicer that will satisfy the daily juicing needs of both of you. On the flip-side, if you aim juicing for multiple people, or you are a heavy juicer, then you need a fast and powerful centrifugal juicing machine indeed.
What Do You Plan To Juice – Having a rough sense about what types of produce you will be juicing is very important to determine the right model of juicer. Hence, if you will be using the juicer for leafy greens (kale, spinach, etc.), go for a masticating juicer. And if you prefer juicing harder fruits and veggies (carrots, apples, etc.), centrifugal fruit juicers will give you the most out of juicing results. If you are planning to juice a bit of everything, again, turn to fruit juicers, especially if you are pressed for time.
Storage – Normally, another thing to consider is storage, as your future juicer will have to fit your kitchen countertop. Particularly if you ‘suffer’ from limited countertop space, it is of the utmost importance to measure dimensions and consider them when selecting a model.
