Masticating VS Centrifugal Juicers

Are you thinking to buy a good quality juicer from the market? But you might get confused to decide which type of juicer you should buy.

For this reason, I am presenting you an article with the information and difference of masticating vs centrifugal juicer to help you out of this problem.

Additionally, these are the most popular types of juicers in the market. Hope, it will help you to select the juicer that you require.

Centrifugal Juice Extractors

Centrifugal juice extractors are the most common type of juicer in the market. Firstly, it has a sharp metal blade which spins very fast against the mesh filter to extract the juice out of the fruits. Secondly, the juicer uses centrifugal force in this mechanism.

Also, honestly speaking, there is a little bit problem with this type of juicer is that it produces heat because of the fast spinning of the metal blade.

As a result, it reduces the amount of nutrient element in the juice. On the other hand, masticating juicers keeps the nutrition of the juice high. I will discuss this fact in the next paragraph.

I tested the Breville 800JEXL Juice Fountain Elite 1000-Watt Juice Extractor for centrifugal juice extractor.

Masticating Juicers

The mechanism of juicing of masticating juicers is quite different from the previous one. Firstly, it extracts the fruit or vegetable juice by crushing it. Secondly, it presses it continuously until the highest possible juice extracts from it.

As a result, the nutrition of the juice remains intact.
