Before jumping into the conclusion whether slow juicers are really better, one must first understand the two broad categories available in the market. One is the traditional centrifugal juicer and the other one is the cold press slow juicer or the masticating juicer as it is more commonly known as.
Our company manufactures both these types of juicers. But before offering them to you, we would like to present a clear picture by weighing the pros and cons of each one of them so that you can make your preferred choice. We are here to give you the best from both the worlds. Now, it is up to you which one do you think would suit your needs the best.
The centrifugal juicer employs the centrifugal force in extracting the juice from the fruits and vegetables with the help of a metal blade that rotates against a filter. Due to its fast spinning technology, it results in a lot of heat generation which is believed to reduce the nutritional value of the fruits and vegetables. But it is very often opted by people who lead busy lives and do not want to spend too much time in the kitchen.
Our collection of centrifugal juicers is among the best that can be offered in this technology. It comes fitted with an anti-drip stopper, resulting in no spillages. The large feed tube can also take care of whole fruits and vegetables like apples, bananas, carrots and beetroots and also gives a clear juice.
Cold Press Slow Juicer
On the other hand, from the very name itself you can understand that as opposed to the centrifugal juicers, the slow cold press juicers, extract the juices from your fruits and vegetables rather slowly. This means that the slow juicer can produce juice from even the most fibrous fruits and vegetables without compromising on the enzymes and the minerals found in juices. And, of course, anything that is loaded with nature’s goodness is sure to tickle your taste buds and offer you enormous satisfaction. Slow juicers are also believed to have a greater durability. This is because as the blades move slowly, the juicer is able to sustain over a longer period of time.
Our machine comes fitted with the 1.3L pulp container which collects the dry, nutrient-rich pulp, that can be added to brownies, cakes, soups etc. to make them tastier and wholesome. The 1L juice jug also means it can accommodate a good amount of fruits and vegetables. Hence, you can enjoy tall glasses of fruit juices early in the morning.
Conclusion- are slow juicers really better?
So this is how the cookie crumbles. If you want to enjoy the health benefits of both fruit and vegetable juices, but are hard pressed for time, then centrifugal juicers are your go to option. But if you want to eat, healthier, and also have time at your disposal, then cold press slow juicers are the right choice for you. Even if you are running short of time, yet do not want to compromise even a wee bit, when it comes to health and nutrition, then also slow juicers should be your favoured item.
Choices are usually driven by needs, hence you should always lay your hands on the one that serves your purpose and gives you the best return on investment. Although both the types of juicers have their own advantages and disadvantages, I would place cold press slow juicers slightly above the centrifugal ones, because of their greater health benefits and durability.
