Here are the questions you should ask yourself before buying a juicer
For whom is a centrifuge intended?
A juicer is especially suitable for those who want to eat healthy food every morning and thus strengthen their immune system.
Fresh juices also contain many more trace elements, vitamins, enzymes and minerals than juices sold in supermarkets. You can also be 100% sure that your juice contains no preservatives or other harmful substances.
Another positive point is that you always know exactly what is in your juice.
What are modern juicers suitable for?
In addition to centrifugation, modern centrifuges can perform a number of other tasks. For example, hummus or almond milk can be produced with a centrifuge.
However, one of the main tasks of any centrifuge is the centrifugation of fruit and vegetables as well as herbs and spices. You may not have known it yet, but centrifuges have a number of other applications.
With a citrus juicer you can turn fresh juices into delicious cocktails or make your own fresh almond milk. Tomato hummus or salsa can also be easily extracted from a centrifuge. There are also machines that can make fruit sorbets from frozen fruit. As you can see, there are no limits to your ideas with a juicer.
P.S. A centrifuge not only presses fruit and vegetables. For example, you can use a centrifuge to prepare different drinks and mix several fruits together to make new juices and drinks.
How much does a centrifuge cost?
Centrifuges are available in different price and quality classes. The cheapest presses are manual presses and various entry-level models. The most expensive are professional models, which have many functions and applications.
First of all, it depends on the type of juicer you choose. Then, questions about the manufacturer, functions and applications play an important role before buying the juicers.
You can buy entry-level models from as little as approx. 30 euros. Professional models on the other hand easily exceed 150 Euro.
Steam centrifuges offer the cheapest models. For only 25 Euro you can get an inexpensive entry-level model. Depending on the manufacturer and model, a steam juicer can exceed the 100 Euro mark.
Below 10 euros you will only get a manual juicer, while electric juicers are available from 10 euros. Good models of juicers with one or even two screws cost at least 300 euros and more. Therefore, you need to adjust your budget according to your needs and find the model that suits you best.
Type: Juice centrifuge
Price: between 30 and 300 euros
Type: Steam Juicer
Price: between 25 and 150 euros
Price: between 5 and 200 euros
Price: from 150 Euro
Where is the best place to buy a centrifuge?
It is relatively easy to buy a centrifuge. You can even buy a centrifuge in supermarkets like Lidl or Aldi and they are often sold. Of course you can buy your next centrifuge in an electricity store. You can also find many offers on the Internet and you can have the selected juicer delivered to your home.
According to our research, these stores sell the most centrifuges:
What can I turn into juice?
In principle, it is possible to extract the juice from any vegetable or fruit. Herbs and herbs are also suitable for juice production. The only requirement is that there is enough liquid in fruit, vegetables, grass and herbs.
It is the fruit and vegetables that are the most juicy:
- oranges >/li>
- cucumbers >/li>
The type of juicer you use also plays a role. With a juicer it is not possible to press grass such as spelt or wheatgrass. A centrifuge is much better suited for this.
Sports and nutrition specialist Andrea Szodruch says: “Daily fresh juice is a good way to supply the body with many vitamins and minerals. Use seasonal fruits that have the shortest possible transport distances and are rich in nutrients!
How many watts should the juicer have?
First and foremost, you should clarify what kind of fruit or vegetables you prefer and how often you want to use the juicer .
If you are not a frequent user and only want a little red fruit juice from time to time, a low-priced 300-watt entry-level model will suffice. However, if you drink juice often and want to process the various fruits and vegetables into juice, you should buy an expensive professional model equipped with a power of 1000 watts or more.
Which juicer is the right one for you?
There are essentially three types of citrus juicers:
The centrifugation process is different for each of these three types. This has individual advantages and disadvantages.
It is important to weigh up your priorities to determine which centrifuge is the right one. In the next section, we will help you determine what type of juicer you are and which one is best for you.
To find out, we will introduce you to the different types of juicers and give you an overview. In addition , you will receive a list of advantages and disadvantages so that you can see where the different types of citrus juicers differ.
How does a centrifuge work and what are its advantages and disadvantages?
A friction disk and a sieve together ensure that the centrifugation process in the centrifugal separator functions perfectly.
The fruit and vegetables are first quickly chopped by the friction disc, then the pulp is filtered through the sieve. If there are seeds in the flesh, they are pressed through the sieve. During the centrifugation process, heat is often generated because the friction disc rotates very quickly. The heat often causes valuable vitamins to be lost, and this is one of the disadvantages of the centrifugal sucker.
The relatively large filling opening is clearly one of the advantages of the centrifugal extractor. Some fruits and vegetables do not need to be ground at all, but can simply be completely crushed in the centrifugal separator. With most centrifuges, you first have to cut the fruit and vegetables into small pieces. In addition, the juicer is quite fast and it is also a great advantage.
advantages of the juicer:
+ Fast fruit juice
+ The reduction becomes superfluous.
+ Large filling openings
+ Very easy to clean
+ Suitable for hard fruits and vegetables
disadvantages of the juicer:
– Less vitamins due to heat development
– Quieter centrifugation process than with other centrifuges
– Not suitable for the extraction of herbal and grass juices.
– Less robust
– Nut juice for deficient milk or nut milk not possible
Many users find it a disadvantage that a centrifuge presses much harder than a conventional centrifuge. In addition, some users complain that they are not so robust and that something becomes defective after a short time. However, centrifuges are suitable for fast pressing, which can lead to background noise. Furthermore, professional models are much more robust and do not break after a short time, as some users complain.
How is juice produced with a steam centrifuge and what are the advantages and disadvantages of it?
A steam citrus juicer consists of three important components: a water pot, a collection container and a fruit basket.
The necessary steam is produced by the water that is filled into the lower upper parts. The collection container is located in the middle and is equipped with a funnel. The steam rises through the funnel. The drain hose is located at the collection container and is made of rubber or silicone. The fruit basket is placed on top of the collection container and looks like a sieve.
The crushed fruit is placed in the fruit basket. Steam is generated by the heated water. The steam heats the fruit and releases the valuable juice. Since the fruit is heated so much, the resulting juice has a longer shelf life. It is therefore recommended to fill the juice into well-sterilized bottles and to close them tightly to keep the juice for a long time.
Advantages steam juicers
+ The fruit does not need to be seeded.
+ The juice has a longer shelf life
+ The juice can be extracted in large quantities.
+ Low acquisition costs
+ Easy to clean
Disadvantages steam juicers
– It takes a lot of time.
– The development of heat kills vitamins.
– The juicers need a lot of storage space.
– Only juicers steam fruit juice
In addition, large quantities of fruit can be processed simultaneously. This method is very time consuming, as it takes at least 30 to 60 minutes to get enough juice. The valuable vitamins are lost due to the heat development and so the whole thing loses its importance. Furthermore, only the juice can be extracted with a steam centrifuge.
How do juice presses work and what are their advantages and disadvantages?
There are three different types of juicers :
- Twin screw centrifuges >/li>
The difference between a juicer and a juicer is that a juicer is only suitable for centrifuging citrus fruits and a juicer is suitable for centrifuging almost all vegetables from the East.
Before being converted into juice, juice for juicers must be broken into pieces. The fruit press then presses the individual pieces of fruit or vegetables and the juice flows into the juice bowl. The dry pomace residues fly away in the pomace collection container.
In a juicer, mechanical pressure is applied to the fruit or vegetable. In this way the fruit or vegetable does not lose its valuable vitamins and you get a much better quality product than, for example, a steam centrifuge. In addition, a centrifuge does not generate heat because the mechanical pressure is generated at low speed and therefore no heat is transferred to the fruit.
“It is extremely important to make sure that you do not apply too much pressure to the juicers. When using a mechanical press” the press must be pressed very slowly.
The big advantage of a juicer is the low purchase price. You can buy a manual juicer for only 10 euros and store it anywhere in the kitchen because it takes up very little space. However, a juicer is only suitable for the centrifugation of citrus fruits. Depending on the model, you also have to use a lot of force to extract the juice from the fruit.
+ Low acquisition costs
+ space saving
+ The operation is very easy.
+ Long service life
+ Easy to clean
– For centrifugation of citrus fruits only
– A lot of effort
With a juicer with one or two snails you have the great advantage that no valuable vitamins are lost. After all, no heat is generated and the fruit or vegetables are gently pressed. You can also juice herbs or herbs without any problems.
Unfortunately there are higher purchase costs. Furthermore, you lose much more time with centrifugation than with any other centrifuge. Here you have to peel and chop the fruit or vegetable, which takes time in the morning. If you put too much fruit or vegetables into the centrifuge, you can get stuck, because you will have to repair it to get the machine running again. Therefore you should fill the fruit press carefully and slowly with fruit or vegetables.
Advantages Juicer with auger
+ No heat development takes place.
+ Centrifugation is gentle and quiet.
+ Herbs and herbs can be extracted from the juice.
+ The consistency of the juice is good
+ No foam formation
Disadvantage juicer with auger
– It takes a lot of time.
– High acquisition costs
– Possible accumulation
– Chop and peel fruit and vegetables
– Stone Fruits
In the following we will show you which factors you should use to compare and evaluate a centrifuge. Therefore it will be easier for you to decide whether a centrifuge is suitable for you or not.
It is a question of:
- size of the centrifuge
- number of speed levels
- capacity of the collection container
- size of the filling opening
In the following sections you will find information on the individual purchasing criteria and their classification.
size of the centrifuge
A centrifuge is not always a small household appliance, but it needs storage space in your kitchen. Depending on which appliance you choose, you will need more or less space in the kitchen. Therefore , it is important to consider the frequency of use of the juicer and whether you want fruit juice , vegetable juice or both .
Centrifuges are available in different models and sizes. The right size often depends on the space available in the kitchen.
Among centrifuges, citrus fruit centrifuges are the most compact. It does not matter whether they are manual or electric. However, the big disadvantage of a juicer is the limitation in terms of juice, which means that you can’t have citrus juice and nothing else. Most citrus juicers have the following dimensions: 20 x 20 centimeters.
If you want more than just citrus juice, you should create a little more space in your kitchen. You can also store a centrifuge in your kitchen cupboard. A centrifuge takes up twice as much space as a citrus centrifuge.
A steam juicer can reach a diameter of about 26 centimeters and its height can even exceed the 50 centimeter mark. However, a steam juicer can be easily disassembled into spare parts (containers) and stored in a space-saving manner.
It is better to measure the exact space in the kitchen and look for a centrifuge. After all, it would be illogical to first buy a large centrifuge and then find that there is not enough room for it in the kitchen.
number of speed levels
This in turn depends on the selected press, as each press has different functions and speed settings.
Most centrifuges have two speeds. Speed settings are important if you want to press different fruits and vegetables and achieve a fine juice consistency.
Steam juicers, for example, do not have speed control, as fruit and vegetables are pressed in steam.
A juicer has almost only one speed setting because you have to apply pressure to the juicers to squeeze the citrus fruits.
In addition, juice presses, whether with one or two screws, have only one speed stage. However, the juicer can be rotated forward or backward, which is very practical if there is a fruit jam in the juicer.
The housing is usually made of plastic or stainless steel. A centrifuge with stainless steel housing is usually more expensive than a centrifuge with plastic housing.
Before buying, it is advisable to consider a few points. For example, how long do you want to use the juicers (permanently or only temporarily, as an emergency solution)? How robust should your future centrifuge be? Or is appearance more important to you and the new centrifuge should give your kitchen a certain extra portion?
After you have answered all the questions yourself, you can start looking for the right juicer.
It should be noted that a centrifuge with a stainless steel housing is much more durable than a plastic centrifuge.
“You have to pay for good quality, and that goes for the centrifuge as well. If you are looking for a high quality juicer, you should read the reviews on the Internet carefully”.
Juice tank capacity
The question about the capacity of the juice container should only be asked if you know exactly how much juice you want to extract per day. The number of people in your household plays an important role.
For example, if you make juice for several people every morning and want to produce a constant amount, it is a good idea to look for a centrifuge with a large juice container.
But here too, the type of juicer is important.
The capacity of the juice tanks of the centrifuges is between 0.7 and 2.5 liters. Therefore there are some differences in a centrifuge.
Steam centrifuges have the highest capacity of all centrifuges. Depending on the model and manufacturer, the capacity of the juice tank is between 3 and 7 liters.
A juicer probably has the smallest capacity of the juice container. There are even juicers that have no juice container at all, but the juice is pressed directly into the glass. Normally, however, the capacity is about 0.75 liters.
If you decide to use a centrifuge, you can assume that the juice container has a capacity of 0.5 to 1.5 liters. Of course, the models differ in design from manufacturer to manufacturer.
capacity of the collection container
The capacity of the container is so important because it indirectly determines how much juice you will extract. After all, you do not want to constantly empty the container to squeeze more juice.
First and foremost, you do not need to ask yourself this question with a juicer because there is no collection container for the pulp.
The centrifuges are equipped with collecting bins with a capacity of about 1 to 3 liters. We recommend that you check the capacity of the collection container before you buy. After all, it depends on the amount of fruit or vegetables you want juice. For example, if you only want to press a few organs in the morning, a centrifuge with a capacity of one liter will be sufficient.
size of the filling opening
The size of the filling opening is interesting because it saves you valuable time. If the feed opening is large enough, you do not need to cut the fruit or vegetables into small pieces, which saves you time.
With this criterion it is important that you think more often about what you want. Are these oranges, apples or tomatoes? Depending on the size of the feed opening, you can put either a whole orange or a few equally sized pieces in the centrifuge.
Most centrifuges have a large feed opening, which saves people a lot of work. Usually the size of the filling opening of the centrifugal aspirator is between 7 and 8.5 centimeters. Therefore you can pour the apples into the centrifuge without peeling or cutting them.
Juice squeezers have a much smaller filling opening of 4 to 5 centimeters in diameter. Please note that large fruit or vegetables must first be cut into small pieces.
If you want to clean individual parts of the juicers in the dishwasher , then you should consider this aspect before buying. There are individual centrifuges that are dishwasher safe, so you can easily have the individual parts cleaned in your dishwasher.
It is also recommended to remove the juicer and clean it immediately after use. After a short time the grape marc dries out and then it is very difficult to extract it from the different components of the juicers. It is therefore advisable to put the parts of the juicers in the dishwasher immediately after use and switch them on immediately.
“It is recommended to clean the juicers after each use. If you want to clean the parts of the juicers in your dishwasher, you must make sure that the various components are dishwasher-safe.
If you do not want to store the juicers in the kitchen cabinet immediately after use, you must pay attention to the design. After all, the centrifuge is a kitchen appliance that completes your kitchen.
At this stage the color is worth considering. Finally, you can install it so that your new centrifuge fits perfectly into your kitchen. Centrifuges probably offer you the widest choice of colors. The centrifuges are available in different colors as well as in classic stainless steel look and in black, white and red.
The centrifuges are also available in several colors. For manual juicers you can also choose from a wide range of colors. Electric juicers are mainly sold in stainless steel look, in white or black.
With a steam juicer you can be sure that you will only buy them in stainless steel look. Steam juicers are only made of stainless steel and the reason for this is their nature.
Also, you have to ask yourself which shape you prefer? Centrifuges are available in many different shapes. Centrifuges and juicers are only produced in two different shapes, long and round. However, you have to decide which shape you prefer. A well chosen centrifuge has the advantage that you don’t have to hide it all the time because it doesn’t convince you visually.
Juicer test – facts about the juicer
What should I pay attention to?
Here are some points to consider when extracting fruit juices.
When centrifuging, it is primarily important not to centrifuge vegetables and fruit that contain too much sugar. These include carrots, oranges and apples.
It is advisable to use less sweetened vegetables and fruit, such as cucumbers. In this way, you can avoid the so-called “high sugar content”, which lasts only a short time and provides you with only temporary energy. This disappears after a short time and becomes lethargy.
It is also important that you do not drink too much of the juice that you have prepared yourself. It is advisable to start with a small amount, which you can then increase over time.
To make your juice especially tasty, you should take a closer look at some types of vegetables and fruits. Not all vegetables and fruits go together and not all of them develop a delicious taste.
It is also important that you drink the fresh juice immediately. Fresh juices are easily perishable and can be stored in the refrigerator for up to two days.
“The body does not transform juice into liquid, but regards it as complete food. For this reason you should not drink more than one glass of juice per day.
How do I best clean the juicers?
It is recommended to clean the juicers immediately after centrifugation. Grape pomace residue dries very quickly and is very difficult to remove.
If you want to drink the juice immediately after centrifugation, just put the dirty parts of the juicer in water to soak it. This prevents the grape marc from drying out. The fine sieves of a centrifuge are easier to clean with a fine brush or even a toothbrush.
Only in the case of very heavy soiling and if the grape marc residues are already viscously dried, you can use part of the cleaning agent for cleaning. It is advisable to dab only the friction surface, otherwise your rags will suffer, as the friction surfaces are very sharp. It is also very important to clean the juicers thoroughly. Do not leave any residues in the niches. Otherwise, mold can grow quickly.
Does a juicer have a positive effect on health ?
The question can be answered immediately with yes.
Fresh, homemade juices contain many vitamins, trace elements, minerals and enzymes, which are extremely important for a healthy body. In addition, it is much easier to get enough vitamins and nutrients from the fruit to cover the daily requirements. Especially in the cold season it is very important that the body receives enough vitamins to support the immune system in its work against pathogens.
Apples contain many ingredients that kill free radicals and thus inhibit inflammation. Furthermore, the immune system is strengthened.
Oranges contain a lot of vitamin C. This helps with colds and contributes to beautiful, clean skin. Therefore, you should take a lot of vitamin C in winter.
Cucumbers contain vitamins B, C and E. In addition, cucumbers have a detoxifying effect on the body and also strengthen the immune system.
Carrots contain beta-carotene, which your body needs to support a good vision. Carrots also contain calcium, zinc, iron and folic acid. These ingredients are also very important for the body.
Centrifugation filters the fibers and allows the body to absorb nutrients faster and more efficiently.
What should I do with the marc?
You do not have to throw away your snacks. They are easy to process because they contain many nutrients and fiber. The marc also contains vitamins.
If you have a dehydrator, you can let the marc dry and snack on it. You can also use vegetable marc to make delicious pasta sauces. Fry part of the vegetable marc with garlic and onions and mix with tomato juice. The sauce you have created yourself is ready.
In addition, grape marc residues are particularly good to work into raw vegetable salads. Fruit marc residues are also very good in muesli or fruit muffins. If you want, you can make a mask from grape marc.
You can also use grape marc as feed and feed it to animals in the zoo, for example. If you have a hamster or a rabbit at home, you can give him a delicious treat with your marc remains.
Here are the best recipes for your centrifuge
With these recipes you can start immediately and prepare delicious juices with your centrifuge:
- strawberry, pineapple and coconut juice: (100 g fresh or frozen strawberries, 300 g fresh pineapple, canned coconut water)
- Hummus: (Put the chickpea box in the bag. the juicer and let it run. Now add some garlic, salt, lemon and tahini to season).
