Masticating versus Centrifugal Juicers

<b>What are</b> Masticating Juicers?

What are Masticating Juicers?

Masticating or 'Slow' Juicers crush or 'chew' the fruit or veggies at a slow and steady rate, pressing the juice and nutrients out. The juice trickles into one compartment, while a rotating grinder pushes the 'cud' out the other end into another compartment.

What are Centrifugal Juicers

Centrifugal Juicers or Juice Extractors, process the fruits and veggies like a high speed grater. The circular motion forces the juice, which is lighter, though a mesh chamber to the outside walls of the juicer while the pith, which is heavier, is expelled into a different chamber.

Masticating Juicers are generally:

  • Slower
  • Quieter
  • Require more prep
  • More costly
  • Better at preserving nutrients for longer
  • Better at processing leafy greens and hard fruit or vegetables

Centrifugal Juicers are generally:

  • Faster
  • Louder
  • Require less prep
  • More affordable
  • Oxidises juice sooner
  • Good at processing both soft and hard fruit or vegetables

Perhaps you need a blender?

While juicers extract just the juice, blenders process the whole fruit or vegetable — ideal for making fibre-rich smoothies.
