I can explain in detail the anatomy of the human ear, and the differences between a defense and a , but I am awash in confusion when it comes to the complexities of the juicer market. Hi Kim, TO be honest with you, I think the Breville company makes the best centrifugal juicer, and I would definitely by the Breville compact juice fountain rather than the Jack Lalanne Juicer. We offer several style of juicers to meet your needs. Jump to Top Ninja Models. Antioxidants including vitamin C , and enzymes are the most effected by the processing methods. It can also handle fruits and veggies easily that comes with skin and stems, which ensures that it contains all the necessary nutrition in your recipe.
The operation of this machine is based on several industry leading designs. These brushless motors have very few moving parts that rub together which make them very dependable. The Omega Model can be used with optional non-bleached cellulose fiber filters. These filters will give you a true pulp free juice and let you clean up in seconds. If the filters are not used the clean up is still easy, but takes a little more time. There will also be some pulp in the juice if the filters are not used, but the same amount as most other juicers.
The stainless parts are comprised of a heavy gauge Surgical Stainless Steel. All of the Stainless parts are either polished or sandblasted to make the unit look nice and at the same time make it easy to clean. Each one of the baskets is hand balanced, just like the wheels on your car, to achieve virtually no vibration while juicing a wide variety of fruits and vegetables. The Basket is very open so it is easy to clean. The large Stainless Steel Bowl is polished on the outside to a mirror like finish.
The inside has a sandblasted finish and is very open so it is easy to clean. The Stainless Steel Blade efficiently chews up fruits and vegetables without wearing down. When you hold the blade you'll appreciate its weight knowing how durable it will be. The blade has a plastic ring on the outer edge of its underside that has little feet.
These feet help the blade float. Hi, i currently own a breville centrifugal juicer, that i want to replace with a vitamix blender due to the benefit of getting the pulp. So after reading this interesting article i am confused. If you want the benefit of the pulp and its rich fiber content then you definitely want to go with a vitamix-blender. It had great reviews, comparable to the much pricier Breville.
I love the juicer, it puts out a great amount of juice. Yay for a good price to have really good health benefits! Wondering if you knew how significant the nutrient loss through oxidation is if I juice in the morning and consume it 5 hours later.
Which one is better or do you have another reference. Thank you for you help. I would like to buy a centrifugal juice extractor. Can you give your opinion for these models: If you have another model to suggest,please do. Hi,pls i want to start a natural juice making kitchen in my country with fruits like oranges,apple,water lemons,etc.
What kind of juice extractor should i go based on the durability,speed, less noise and more nutitious juice for my customers. Can the single auger and twin gear machines be used instead of a vitamix, so long as they have the homogenizing function? I have been thinking about getting a vitamix for some time, to make smoothies, nut milks and to blend things more thoroughly than my food processor. Seems like a single auger juicer may be easier to clean than a vitamix.
I think I understand what you mean! Do not buy the Jack Lalane. I have one and the piece that blade screws onto is made of plastic and it broke. We tried to glue it together so I would not have to buy a new one and it worked one more time and now its broke again and it can not be fixed. Of course there is a 10 year warranty but that is on the motor not the plastic piece that is attached to the motor well, I can buy the part I need because they sell it but the part must be the entire motor.
After researching this I found that many many people have had this issue with their Jack Lalane Juicer. So I have decided not to buy the part and instead find me a better product. Do your research this is a great investment but like any investment it must be researched for a better outcome.. Hey i was thinking about buying the Jack Lallane Powerjuicer.
Would it be a complete waste being that the nutrient, antioxidant and enzymes are very low? Should I hold out for a more effective juicer? The Jack LaLanne Power Juicer is a centrifugal style juicer machine as are all the breville juicer machines.
Centrifugal juicer machines still create very nutritious drinks, it is just that masticating juicers and triturating juicers create even more nutritious drinks, especially when it comes to antioxidants. My very first juicer was a Jack LaLanne Juicer, but if I knew then what I know now, then I would hold out for a masticating machine, but all the same I was still enjoying healthy juice with the Jack LaLanne!
What about the Ninja Kitchen System ? I saw it on an infomercial and it seemed to be quite loud but it does total jucing. Blenders also make awesome and healthy drinks, but I am only reviewing juicer machines on this page. I was not aware of the differences in juicers, nor had I even heard of a triturating juicer before. I have an old school Jack LaLanne Junior and need an upgrade, so your webite has proven quite helpful. I am new to juicing and want to make a purchase. The Green Power Juicer is a high-quality juicing machine.
Check out this link to learn more about Juicing vs Blending. Hello Darren and Veronica, Thank you for taking your time to help other people get educated about juicing. Your website is great. I am very new to this concept and I would like to permanently incorporate juicing into my lifestyle for weigh loss and over-all health. But I have also read of the virtues of wheatgrass and that I should have a machine that handles it, and apparently the Breville does not.
How important is wheatgrass in a healthy diet, and how important is it for a machine that can juice wheatgrass? Also, is there any thoughts that you may have regarding the intense speed of this machine rpm and the warning that high speed creates heat and therefore kills some of the benefits of the juice?
Thank you for any thoughts you may have to guide me and many others through this confusing maze. I am glad you brought up these points because they are a source of confusion for those new to juicing or buying their first juice extractor. The high speed of the Breville Juice Fountain and all centrifugal based juice extractors does create heat that will kill some nutrition.
However, juice is so nutritious that even with some nutrients destroyed there is still a plethora of nutrients left over. So the juice created by these machines is still very beneficial, no doubt about it.
However, as you stated the Breville and all centrifugal juicers cannot juice wheatgrass, the mechanism used and the speed that they juice at cannot extract the juice from something as thin as wheatgrass. They can extract some juice from some thicker leaves like that of kale, spinach, etc, but are not so effective at this. These centrifugal machines are best used for solid items like apples, carrots etc.
If you want to juice all sorts of fruits and vegetables, including leafy greens, wheatgrass and even herbs then a masticating or triturating juice extractor is the way to go. So they do produce more nutritious juice. They are a level up from centrifugal machines. Wheatgrass is not by any means essential to a diet, you can get a wonderful range of antioxidants and other nutrients by juicing a variety of fruits and veggies.
Thank you for your quick and informative reply. I am amazed at how many choices there are when it comes to juicers. I can explain in detail the anatomy of the human ear, and the differences between a defense and a , but I am awash in confusion when it comes to the complexities of the juicer market. You provide a tremendous service for all of us trying to live a healthier lifestyle through juicing. Thank you again for taking your time to provide this service.
I watched a youtube. That fact and your comments have me rethinking my choice for a juicer. Can the masticating and triturating machines deal easily with beets and carrots and ginger and things like that?
I would prefer to make an investment in something that would be quiet, easy to clean, and as inclusive of the many varieties of fruits and vegetables as possible. Any suggestions would be helpful. Yep, the Breville is noisy, a little bit like kick starting a motorcycle, but it is super fast.
It is a great way to wake the kids up. It is a great machine, and uses magnets and ionizing technology to bring more alkalinity to the juice, which reduces oxidation and increases the shelf-life of the juice.
While this and other triturating machines juice beets, carrots, and ginger effectively, producing higher juice yields and nutritional value than both masticating and centrifugal juicer machines, it is harder work to use the triturating machines. You need to use a bit of muscle to push the tougher vegetables into the twin gears, a little less force is needed for masticating juicers, and less still for centrifugal machines.
The Green power Kempo comes with a fruit attachment, for juicing softer fruits, which it does fine. You can also make nut butters, baby food, healthy sorbets and pasta with it too. So it does juice the greatest range of fruits and vegetables, including the thin stuff like wheatgrass and even herbs. The noise level is considerably less than that of the centrifugal machines. I also find the triturating machines easier to clean than the centrifugal machines since there are no serrated edges.
The metal filter baskets in centrifugal machines also need a bit of a scrub. Triturating machines wash down easier. I just want to thank you again for all your help with my education about juicers. I decided to buy the Omega VRT, and used it for the first time tonight. It worked very well. My only hope now is to get used to the taste of the juice. Yes, I am a grown man, and yes, I did use the word yuck.
But I will continue to try different combinations until I find some that I like. I suppose juicing a jelly donut kind of defeats the purpose right?
Anyway, thanks again for your help. You guys rock like a beet! I really like those top-loading masticating juicers. Glad you like it. Wow, what a well done page—loved the you tube feeds also. I feel ready to make the plunge now. I have a Juiceman, and love the juice. Always make sure juicer cover is clamped securely in place before motor is turned on. With proper care, your Omega Juicer will provide you with years of dependable service, helping to ensure your continued good health and vitality.
Once the juicer is turned off, it is normal for the juicer to continue to spin for a minute or two due to the precision balancing of the Omega Ju i c e r. This red button is located on the bottom of the juicer. Simply push the button to reset the machine and the machine should now function normally.
