Your juicer comparison guide to centrifugal force juicers
Centrifugal juicers – also known as fast juicers – are the most popular types of juicers, particularly because they are quick to use and often budget friendly.
A centrifugal juicer uses three basic steps to make your juice:
- A blade spins at between 6,000 and 14,000 RPM.
- The fruit and veg are passed through the feed tube and shredded by the spinning blade.
- The spinning basket’s centrifugal force throws the juice to the sides and through a screen into a jug or glass.
As with most things in life, there are pros and cons to using a centrifugal juicer. These include the following:
- Centrifugal juicers work quickly – especially if you choose one with a feed tube wide enough to put in whole fruits and veg.
- They stand upright and take up less space in your kitchen.
- They’re budget friendly, making them great for beginners.
- The high RPM in a centrifugal juicer causes heat, which can degrade the nutritional value of your juice.
- They’re often quite noisy.
- The juice produced contains large amounts of pulp.
- It’s recommended you avoid using leafy greens, wheatgrass, nuts, and seeds in these types of juicers, reducing the number of recipes you can create.
