Are you the type of person that enjoys fresh fruit in the morning? Typically you're either someone who likes fruit in the morning or coffee. If you would rather have coffee, then see our best coffee machine reviews here, otherwise in this section we're reviewing the best juicers on the market to decide which is the one you should buy.
The idea of a juicer is that rather that trying to cut up fruit, a juicer solves this problem by extracting the liquid out of fruit meaning that you now have the perfect fruit juice drink in the mornings.
Most importantly, as an added benefit you can now mix fruit together meaning that you can now create amazing cocktails such as banana and watermelon or orange and strawberry. In this section, we’re looking at juicers and comparing the market to find the best juicers o the market.
We have saved you the hard work and more importantly the misery of buying a juicer that does not perform how you would expect it to. If you buy any o the four models below, you will be buying a quality juicer that will not let you down.
If you don't want to read the whole review and simply want the best juicer on the market then check out the Sage by Heston Blumenthal Nutri Juicer. This model comes with two different power plants, the 1300 Watt and the slightly more powerful Sage 1500Watt. Personally i would recommend the 1300Watt model as it offers better value for money. Overall we love the Sage range of juicers due to their central feed technology that allows for up to 70% of the nutrients to be extracted, whilst the design allows for variable speeds and makes for an easy to clean juicer. If you're looking for the best juicer then buy the Sage by Heston Blumenthal Nutri Juicer 1300 Watt Model.
Firstly we need to separate Juicers from Blender’s as in this section we’re reviewing Juicers and Blender’s are a completely different animal. The key difference is that a Blender basically liquidises the entire fruit meaning that you have both the juice and the fruit bits inside. A juicer extract only the juice from the fruit whilst extracting the dry pulp out the side of the unit.
Secondly there are two different types of juicers, A centrifugal Juicer and A Masticating Juicer. The best type of juicers are typically the masticating juicers as these work my grinding the fruit a slow speeds to extract the juice from the fruit whilst the centrifugal juicer use spinners that speed really fast to extract the juice. Typically the masticating juicer is the better types as centrifugal juicers typically introduce heat to the fruit which limits it’s life span.
What To Look For When Buying A Juicer
If you’re in the market for a new juicer, other than the above, you’re going to need to take into account a few key points to ensure that you buy the best juicer for your home and ensure that it’s the right model for your needs. Below we have outlined some of the key points that we looked at when you’re buying a juicer for home;
- Juicer Power - Whilst we don’t want to destroy the fruit, we do need enough power to extract it’s juice meaning that if you want to extract juice from vegetables such as carrots then you’re going to need to buy at unit that comes with at least 1000Watts.
- Juicer Preparation - On of the key reasons that juicer end up being used twice and then put back into your cupboard is because they are too difficult to set-up meaning that users simply cannot be bothered to use their Juicer
- Juicer Clean Up - The other key reason that juicers end up being used once is that they are too difficult to clean. Check out the Braun 1650, it comes with an amazing performance, but it’s so dam difficult to clean that users simply cannot be bothered to use it. Look for juicer that are machine-washable.
- Design - Specifically the size of the feed chute is very important. To small and you will not get a whole orange down it meaning that you will need to cut it up beforehand therefore making a mess.
- Extra Features - These could include Built-in cord storage and a nonslip base
- Warranty - Make sure that the unit you buy has at least a one year warranty as we have seen even the top models break down in the past. More importantly, make sure that you can claim it as well. We have heard from readers that they buy a cheap import with a five year warranty only to find out they cannot send their juicer anywhere to be replaced.
- Price - this is very important, however take into account the website phrase of “Buy Cheap, Buy Twice”. If you insist on buying a cheap import then be prepared for either it to not work correctly or worse still break down quickly.
