Masticating Juicer vs Centrifugal Juicer Comparison Reveals 15 PROS and CONS of Juicers

Reviews of TOP 5 Best Masticating Juicers from Single-gear and Twin-gear Categories Published by

Los Angeles, CA, USA / ACCESSWIRE / June 6th, 2014 / Centrifugal juicers and masticating juicers have very different internal mechanisms of juicing. Generally, the juice extracted with a masticating juicer (aka cold press juicers) is superior to the juice from a centrifugal juicer in many aspects. However, cold press juicers also have a few limitations making it difficult for consumers to decide which juice extractor suits them best.

15 PROS and CONS of a Masticating Juicer, the newly published comparison of masticating vs centrifugal juicers, discusses the benefits and drawbacks of each type of juicer. Considering that "juicing is trending" in this modern era, this is a timely review that helps consumers weed out low-quality juice extractors.

The review emphasizes that the rotational speed is the most critical difference between the two types of juicers. The grating disks of centrifugal juicers spin fast, at speeds of up to 15,000 revolutions per minute (RPM). In contrast, the gear or auger of the best masticating juicers spin slow, at around 80 – 100 RPM. The former, spins fast extracting the juice by grating and shredding the fruits/vegetables. Fast spinning also means relatively high heat generation and frothing, both of which have a negative impact on the nutritious value of the juice. Heat can destroy heat-sensitive nutrients while the oxygen introduced during foaming can oxidize and destroy nutrients like anti-oxidants and enzymes. In contrast, the mastication-type extractors compress and squeeze the produce, extracting out their juices leaving out a dry, juice-less pulp. Heat generation and frothing are minimal or literally non-existent.

The TOP 5 Masticating Juice Extractors have also been reviewed by Juicers and Recipes recently. All 5 juicers listed on have low rotational speeds with little to no heat generation during juicing and little to no foaming. Anyone interested in juicing for highest health benefits would want to choose a juicer from this list of juicers.

Masticating type juicers are divided in to 2 sub-categories based on whether they have one or two augers (gears). Those with a single auger are sufficient for the majority of homes. The very popular Omega Juicers such as the Omega J8006 Juicer Reviewed here are usually single gear extractors. Twin-gear extractors are also known as triturating juicers. They are generally more expensive than single auger juicers. However, they also produce a higher quality juice. Tribest Green Star and Super Angel juicers are examples for twin-auger triturating juicers.

Manufacturers claim that these produce a more complete level of mastication compared to the single gear juicers.
In addition to reviewing and comparing the best masticating juice extractors, they also review the best centrifugal juicers. Breville BJE200XL Compact Juice Fountain, Hamilton Beach Big Mouth Juicer and Breville BJE820XL Dual Disc Juice Fountain are examples for popular centrifugation juicers. However, they recommend that anyone serious about the health benefits of juicing should opt for a masticating juicer over a centrifugal juicer.
