Benefits of a Cold Press Juicer

Why Choose a Cold Press Juicer

Most juicing experts agree that a cold press juicer is the best juicer to use to get more of the nutrients out of the fresh produce that you are juicing. This especially applies to leafy green vegetables which most other types of juicers have trouble with.

Of course a major reason for juicing in the first place is the health benefits that it provides. Why wouldn’t you want a juicer that is going to give you the most bang for the buck. If you have juiced before then you know how expensive and time consuming it can be. If you are new to juicing then be prepared.

Don’t let me scare you away from juicing with that statement but the truth is juicing can be expensive, if you don’t have your own well stocked garden then the cost of fresh produce can really add up.

It can also be time consuming. No matter what type of juicer you own you will have to spend some time cleaning and cutting up your produce as well as cleaning your juicer when you are done.

Cold Press Juicer vs Centrifugal Juicers - Best Juicer

Save Money with a Cold Press Juicer

A cold pressed juicer is going to save you money in the long run. Although masticating juicers are typically more expensive than a centrifugal juicer, the fact is that a cold press juicer is going to produce the same amount of juice while using less produce. If you are an avid juicer who juices on a regular basis then you are going to recoup the difference in the price of machines with in a few months by using less produce.

Save Time with a Cold Press Juicer

Time is often more important then money when it comes to choosing a juicer and if you know anything about a slow juicer (it’s called a slow juicer for a reason) then you might be wondering how it can save you time. If you don’t know anything about juicers, especially cold pressed juicers, then you should know that they do take longer to juice the same amount of produce when compared to a centrifugal juicer.

So how can a slow juicer save you time. Well the juice from a cold press juicer can be stored for much longer than the juice from a centrifugal juicer which means that you will have to juice less often which is going to save you a good deal of time. In fact typically the juice from a masticating juicer can be stored up to 72 hours while the juice from a centrifugal juicer is only good for 24-48 hours depending on the model of juicer being used.

Centrifugal Juicers-vs-Cold Press Juicers

Healthier Juice with a Cold Press Juicer

In many people’s eyes the most important benefit of a cold pressed juicer is the fact that they undoubtedly make a much healthier juice than what a centrifugal juicer makes. A centrifugal juicer uses high speed blades to separate the juice from the flesh of the produce where as a slow juicer uses a masticating process too crush the fruit and vegetables before pressing the juice.

This masticating process doesn’t create heat, the high speed blades of a centrifugal juicer creates heat which in turn creates oxidation. Additionally the spinning of the blades sucks in oxygen which creates foam, both of these factors is why the juice is of lower quality and has a shorter shelf life.

Cold Pressed Juicers are Multi-functional & Quiet

Many models of cold pressed juicers are multi-functional and can be used to make things such as baby food, sorbet, pasta, rice cakes and butters. Of course the down sides (yes they have downsides) to this is the more functions a juicer has the more complicated it is going to be which means it can be a little more time consuming when it comes to assembling, disassembling and clean up.

A masticating juicer is also extremely quiet, this may not think this is such a huge deal but if you have ever been around a centrifugal juicer running at full speed then you might rethink that. With the time it takes to juice it is nice to be able to have a conversation with your family or friends or maybe even listen to some music or watch that documentary you have been wanting to see. With a cold pressed juicer you can actually do all of those.

Go Green with a Masticating Juicer

One of the really great benefits of a masticating juicer is that they work well with leafy greens such as spinach and kale, they also work well with softer fruits. Most centrifugal juicers really struggle with leafy greens and make a complete mess with softer fruits ( I learned that the hard way some years ago).

Slow Juicer Means Slow Juicing

As previously mentioned, a slow juicer does take more time to get the same volume of juice. This can be a hassle for sure but as I stated before, because of the longer shelf life you can reduce the number of times a week you need to juice.

Clean up usually is going to take a little longer as well although the difference is pretty minimal. However, as I mentioned the more things your juicer can do the more time needed for cleaning.

    Depending on how frequently you intend to use the machine while juice fasting, price might make a considerable difference. Juicers can range in price from $50 to hundreds of dollars.
