What is the difference between a centrifugal juicer and slow juicer?
The slow juicer differs from the juicer by the way of juice extraction. The centrifugal juicer grinds fruit and vegetables and separates the juice from the pulp by means of centrifuging power, while the slow juicer slowly squeezes the juice from fruit and vegetables. Neither juicer generates heat during juice extraction. Both juicers get the most out of your fresh fruits and vegetables and therefore have similar levels of vitamins and nutrients.
Compared to a centrifugal juicer, a slow juicer squeezes more concentrated juice with more fiber and the juice yield is higher with a slow juicer. On the other hand, a juice from a juicer is ready faster, because you do not have to cut the fruit and vegetables, thanks to the large filling funnel.
If you prefer a firm juice, full of fiber, the slow juicer is the most suitable for you. With both models you can enjoy healthy and delicious juice every day, full of vitamins!
Can I juice citrus fruits (as oranges, lemons, limes) with my Slow Juicer?
Yes, you can juice citrus fruits with your juicer
We advise you to peel them before juicing because on the one hand the peel may be chemically treated, and on the other hand the white pith of the fruits tastes bitter and may affect the taste of the juice
What fruits and vegetables can I juice with Philips Slow Juicer?

Additional ingredients which you can put in the juicer: bananas, mangos, avocados or even almonds for special recipes like banana milk or almond milk (see recipe book) and also wheatgrass and leaves for healthy green juices.
How do I prepare the fruits or vegetables before juicing?
Wash the vegetables or fruits, remove peels which you would not normally eat and cut them into pieces that fit into the feeding tube if necessary
Remove stones from cherries, plums, peaches, etc
You do not have to remove cores from fruits like melon, apples and grapes
