What makes a juicer best?
The quality of the juice? The price?
There are a fleet of juicers hoping to claim “the best juicer” title. The fact is, all juice is not created equal. The quest to find the best juicer boils down to getting what you pay for. A juicer review will list the best juicer, according to consumer opinion, as the most expensive.
The taste and quality of the juice is directly related to the juicer you are juicing with. Speaking as an avid juice lover, I have earned my juice wings with a cheap juicer and, after deciding I wanted better juice and ability to do more than just juice- I bought a better, more expensive juicer.
There are a few points to consider when making a juicer choice. The most common complaint with all juicers- from juicer best to juicer worst- is the clean-up process. This is across the board regardless of price. Everybody wants healthy juice but nobody wants to clean the juicer. The inventor of the self-cleaning juicer will be rich and famous!
For my needs, the tipping point to determining the best juicer in any juicer review is the quality of the juice.
Centrifugal juicers are the least expensive (and lower quality, in my opinion), and excellent for “beginners”, those who won’t juice very often but just want an occasional glass of juice. The more you juice, the more you will tend to value having a good juicer- which may mean a more expensive one.
For example, there is a big difference between juicing with, say, a Juiceman brand juicer and a Green Star Juicer. We want the best juicer simply because we want the best juice.
The masticating juicers and twin-gear juicers are more expensive but make a better tasting juice and are more versatile.
The bottom line is this- the best juicer is relative to your own needs. Are you interested in making fruit juices or vegetable juices, or both?
As long as your juice needs are being met, you are juicing with the best! Is my juicer best? Absolutely! Because it serves my purpose, and I get exactly what I want.
Here’s hoping you find not just the best juicer, but the best juicer for you.
