Centrifugal and Masticating Juice Extractors – What are They?

Of the multitude electric juice extractors available at the store there  are ,when it comes down to it, 2 different basic types – centrifugal juice extractors and  masticating juice extractors. In light of that lets take a look at the differing characteristics between these juicers.

Centrifugal Juice Extractors
Centrifugal juice extractors became the first style of electric juicer machines that we could buy in the store. A Jack LaLanne power juicer is  an excellent representation of a†centrifugal juicer. Centrifugal juice extractors  are “tall juicers” that you load your fruits and vegetables into from  the top. The fruits and vegetables then drops into contact with the  centrifugal style blade. This, just to clarify, is a revolving disc with  loads small spiny knifes (in most cases between eighty to a hundred-and-fifty) that grind down and wring fruits and veggies – it looks like a round cheese grater!

The second that fruits and vegetables are cut into granular fragments by the blade,  the centrifugal force (which means moving away from the center) ‘expels’ them outwards against the filter which surrounds the blade.  This force helps to extract extra juice from the little pieces of produce in addition to what the blade has already juiced.

To generate this potent centrifugal force, centrifugal juice extractors need strong motors to spin the blade rapidly. There are several pluses and minuses to this. The main plus is that these juicers make juice rapidly. Some centrifugal juicers can even produce a glass of juice in literally seconds. The disadvantage of this power is that it creates heat that kills a certain amount of the nutrition (but only some).

Masticating Juice Extractors
Masticating juice extractors, generally speaking, are more  horizontal in style compared to the vertical style centrifugal juice extractors. They extract juice by virtue of a very slow method. Rather than using a  blade, masticating juice extractors have a “single gear” mechanism that spins within a tube. This gear is akin to a screw. Fruits and veggies, that  are first chopped into small enough sizes, are sent through this tube, and as  they go by the slow turning gear they get the juice crushed out of them.

The advantage of masticating juice extractors is that the deliberate rate of motion  at which they create fresh juice creates almost no heat and preserves all the nutrition. The cons are that juicing fruits and veggies takes  surprisingly longer in contrast to a centrifugal juice extractor. Preparation takes longer too because fruits and veggies needs chopping up into smaller parts than  with centrifugal juice extractors which are roomy enough to handle some produce whole.
