It is always better to do some research before making a buying decision. There are so many brands each having many models with different features. Most importantly, some juicers out there are really costly.
Let me use this article to guide you about what you need to look for in a juicer to really get value for the money you put in.
So lets get started.
Yield Produced: Make sure that your juicer has a yield of at least 40%. This is big factor.
These days organic fruits are very expensive, you should choose a juicer with high yeild. Slow juicers give high yield than Fast juicers.
Ease of cleaning This may not seem like a big one, but trust me, it is! If your juicer is not easy to use and clean-up after use, over time, you will find yourself using it less and less. It is always better to choose a easy to clean juicer, Its better if all the parts are dishwasher safe. So make sure that juicer is to clean, assemble and disassemble.
Spare Parts: You should buy juicer from a branded company and make sure that they ship replacement parts.
Juicers have gears etc. that move at a very high speed. Many times these gears get broken.
You should clearly read company replacement policies in manual. Warranty: Juicers warranty varies from manufacturer to manufacturer. You should choose a juicer whith large warranty period.
Type & Related Health Benefits: A juicer whose blades move too fast causes the oxidation of the juice. This is bad. However, if you consume the juice directly after producing it, it should not be a problem.
There is only a problem if you let the juice sit for a few hours before consuming it. Hence it is better if you opt for a slow juicer aka masticating juicer. But make sure that the blades of the juicer do not heat up too much too. High temperatures destroy the natural enzymes in raw food making juicing pointless.
