Joe has been working tirelessly over the past 2 years to develop a new juicer. Sign up for the latest news!
Also known as Slow Juicer or Cold Pressed Juicer
Also known as Fast Juicer
This type of juicer can squeeze 10% to 20% more juice out of produce, so despite their initial higher cost, they can save you money in the long term since you can buy less produce for the same amount of juice. They are also quieter than centrifugal juicers. You should expect to spend $300 to $750 for this type of juicer.
Masticating juicers either one or two augers (often called twin-gear) that grind food to break down fibers and release the juice. Many masticating juicers (especially twin-gear versions) can handle wheatgrass, which centrifugal juicers cannot juice very well or at all.
Many masticating juicers also do other tricks, like making nut milks, sorbet, baby food, and nut butters.
Hurom and Omega are examples of brands that sell masticating juicers in North America.
Centrifugal juicers can offer great value. This type of juicer extractor typically does a good job with common juicing ingredients like carrots, apples, celery, citrus, beets and cucumber. Expect to spend between $75 and $300.
There are lots of brands available, but Joe Cross used a Breville juicer throughout Fat, Sick & Nearly Dead. For good value we suggest the Breville Juice Fountain Compact (about $100) or Juice Fountain Plus (about $150)
