Want to increase your intake of health-boosting fresh juices? We’ve got just the appliance for you
If you’re wondering whether you should choose a centrifugal or a slow (aka masticating) juicer, consider what you want to juice and how long you want it to last.
Centrifugal juicers are fast, easy to use and clean. However, oxidation resulting from their great speed can cause a loss in nutrients in the juice and reduce fridge life. A slow juicer requires more prep time (their small chute means you have to pre-cut everything before feeding) but are usually multifunctional, serving as a food processor and a grinder.
Plus, as there is no heat to destroy the enzymes, they make the best juicers for leafy greens. If you only want cold-pressed citrus fruit juices, choose a citrus juicer for fast results.
