Four Ways to Juice

FOUR WAYS TO JUICE

A guide to choosing the right juicer for you, and making the most of it once it’s on your counter.

SHOP ALL JUICERS

SLOW JUICERS

Slow Juicers

A slow juicer, otherwise known as an upright masticating juicer, uses a single auger to crush and squeeze food to extract liquids. Despite their name, slow juicers only take a bit longer to produce juice than their high-speed counterparts. This slight difference in juicing time increases both the extracted juice’s quality and its nutrients.

SHOP ALL SLOW JUICERS

KEY FEATURES

Low heat: Foods juiced in a slow juicer are heated less in the juicing process, which helps retain nutrients.

Less oxidation: Less air is incorporated during the juicing process, which means less foam in your juice and a longer shelf life for the juice.

Extra fiber: Slow juicers produce. Thicker juice that retains more fiber from the original food than juice yielded at a high speed.

Wheatgrass-friendly: All leafy greens can be slow juiced, including wheatgrass.

Approved for nuts: If almond milk is yourthing, slow juicing is the only method that can be used.

Quieter process: No blades and no high-speed spinning means less noise.

Smaller size: Most slow juicers take up very little counter space, though the smaller size also requires a bit of prep in cutting down ingredients to fit into the feed tube.

Blade free: No blades are involved in the juicing process, so you don’t’ have to handle anything sharp during cleanup

HIGH-SPEED JUICERS

High-Speed Juicers

A high-speed, or centrifugal, juicer shreds food and then separates the liquid from the pulp through high-speed spinning. High-speed juicers make incredibly fast work of large quantities of food and feature wide feed tubes that allow many types of ingredients to be juiced with little or no prep.

KEY FEATURES

Speed: The faster process makes a high-speed juicer a great fit if you make juice for four or more people at a time.

Less prep: Many foods don’t require any prep prior to juicing. For example, whole apples can be juiced.

Less pulp: Juice from la high-speed juicer is great for people who prefer minimal pulp in their juice, though the fiber content is lower.

Leafy greens: Though high-speed juicers can handle leafy greens like spinach and kale, they cannot juice wheatgrass.

Sound: After the food is placed in the food tube, the sound should be comparable to a blender on its highest setting. 

Shelf life: Because high-speed juicing exposes food to more air, it’s a good fit for people who tend to drink their juice right away, as the juice has a shorter shelf life.

BLUICERS

Bluicers

“Bluicing” is the latest innovation in making fresh juice at home, thanks to the new Bluicer developed by Breville. The interchangeable design allows you to blend, juice or both (also known as “bluice”) by juicing ingredients directly into the blender jug to create tasty blended drinks with the same motor.

KEY FEATURES

Low heat: The Cold Spin Technology spins fresh ingredients at a low temperature for the highest possible juice yield while preserving the most nutrients.

Max versatility: Make traditional smoothies or juices, or try frappes, slushies and frozen cocktails made with freshly juiced ingredients, all in one machine.

Little prep: The extra-wide 3 1/2" feed chute accepts whole fruits and vegetables without pre-cutting.

Countertop savings: Since the machine can double as a juicer or a blender, it can play the role of two appliances, with the countertop space of just one.

WHOLE-FOOD JUICERS

Whole-Food Juicers

Whole-food juicing utilizes a blender rather than a traditional juicer to create fruit and vegetable-based drinks. The blender creates juice by continuously circulating the contents through the path of a spinning blade at the base of the jar. The blade purees the food into smaller pieces until the desired consistency is reached.

SHOP WHOLE-FOOD JUICERS

 

KEY FEATURES

Speed: The fastest method, whole-food juicing takes a fraction of the time of traditional juice making.

The most fiber: Liquid and pulp are not separated, so juice is high in pulp and contains the ingredients’ full fiber content. 

Cursory prep: Anything that goes into the blender ends up in your juice, so some prep is required, such as removing seeds and stems. 

More yield: A larger yield of juice is generated from the same amount of ingredients.

Extra liquid: Some recipes will require additional liquids in the blender to ensure smooth processing in whole-food juicing.

Leafy greens: Greens such as spinach and kale are suitable ingredients for whole-food juicing, but wheatgrass can only be processed in a slow juicer.

Shelf life: Because ingredients are aerated during blending, whole-food juice is best if consumed right away.

Cleanup: Whole food juicing offers the advantage of an easy cleanup since there is only a single container to wash.
