A good juicer is an important kitchen appliance that we can make fresh and delicious juices out of fresh fruits and vegetables. How does a juicer work? There are different types of juicer and it also has different functions. There is many types of juicer on the market and you will have to choose one that suits your needs.
 

Masticating-Vs-Centrifugal Juicer

Masticating Juicers

These are revolutionary new patented design juicer with high yield as they extract a lot more juice from the same amount of produce (the pulp you get is drier). The advantage is that it saves space as it is designed to stand upright. The juice is first extracted through a crushing stage before the pulp is ejected, it is then squeezed during a second pressing stage; resulting in more juice, and extremely dry pulp.

Upright Masticating juicers are very capable at juicing virtually any fruit and vegetable, and will also extract juice from leaves and grasses, like wheat grass, spinach, lettuce, parsley, and other leafy greens and herbs.
 

Another benefit of a masticating juicer is that it operate at slower speeds (RPM) than centrifugal juicers, resulting in lesser foam and heat, which means more nutrition in your juicing cup. The lower speed also increases the shelf life of the juicer and you can store your juice if you do not drink it immediately.  Masticating juicers are also more versatile than centrifugal juicers because, in addition to extracting juices, the these juicers also homogenize foods to make baby foods, nut butters, banana ice creams as well as fruit sorbets. Some of these juicers can even extrude pasta and rice cakes!
 

Centrifugal Juicers

Centrifugal juicers are very common and they are popular choice.  The main reason being it is cheaper and more affordable for most people. Centrifugal juicer uses sharp knife blades to quickly cut up the fruit and using the force of the blades it turn and extract the juice from the pulp.

Centrifugal juicers are great at juicing most any fruit or vegetable and get the job done very easily and quickly. However, centrifugal juicers does not effectively give high yields of juice from e.g. grassed and leafy foods like wheat grass, spinach, lettuce, parsley and other greens and herbs. Centrifugal juicers will extract some juice from these greens, but far less than single or twin gear juicers.

Some centrifugal juicers are available with large feeding chutes that allow whole foods to be juiced without the need to cut and prepare food into smaller pieces. Most, centrifugal juicers, however have oval shaped feeding chutes that are big enough for at least a quarter of an apple.

Centrifugal type juicers first grate the fruit or vegetable into a pulp, and then use centrifugal force to push the pulp against a strainer screen by spinning it at a very high speed.

The advantages of centrifugal juicers are the speed at which a juicing job can be done, especially when juicing with a wide mouth juicer. There are several disadvantages as well. As mentioned, centrifugal type of juicers are not effective grass and leaf juicers. Additionally, the pulp generated by a centrifugal juicer you will observed is relatively wet, meaning that some juice goes to waste.
 

One more disadvantage is that the shelf life of the juice from a centrifugal juicer. Because of the high speed that is required to extract juice, the juice gets aerated, a great deal of oxygen is dissolved into the juice. The oxygen bubbles in the juice that causes the juice to oxidize (spoil) quickly. So, when you use a centrifugal juicer to juice, you should consumed the juice right away and can't be effectively stored for many hours without loss of nutritional value. If you wish to store juice after making them, you need to consider a low speed juicer like a single or twin gear juicer.
 

So with all these information, you can easily make up your mind to choose between the two types of juicers. If you can afford you should go for the masticating juicers. However, if you are tight on budget then getting a centrifugal juicer is probably the best choice.
