A "masticating juicer" is a device that utilizes gears to grind foods into juice rather than slicing blades. They tend to be pricier than other kinds of juicers, but they produce less food waste by using more of the food you place into it. While not as fast as some other kinds of juicers, they also do a more thorough job of breaking down the foods and not just juice either. Here are some you can check out.
The seven-segment spiral system slowly and thoroughly masticates your fruit and veggies for maximum nutrition and juice yield as well as minimum oxidation, food waste, and foam.
This flexible machine comes with a food processor attachment, homogenizer attachment (for ice cream and nut butters), and a pasta nozzle. It can also be used for grinding coffee and spices.
This juicer is flexibly designed with a large mouth and a small mouth. It has a reverse function to prevent clogging and comes with a brush for effective cleaning.
While masticating juicers tend to be pricey, you can get this well-priced juicer that does everything you expect and more. You can even make ice cream, butter, and more.
The seven spiral system ensures the freshest, highest quality juices possible. It's easy to clean with the included brushes and shovel.
Which one should you choose?
Our top choice is the AMZCHEF Slow Masticating Juicer (opens in new tab). In addition to separating the pulp from the juice, it has a seven-segment spiral to open up each cell and maximize juice. The slow grinding minimizes heat, friction, foaming, and clogging while it maximizes nutrients, enzymes, vitamins, and minerals. It's easy to clean with parts that can be popped into the dishwasher. Lifelong tech consults are included.
Now, if you want the deluxe masticating juicer experience, I'd recommend the Omega J8006HDS Nutrition Center Masticating Dual-Stage Juicer (opens in new tab). The 80 RPM dual-stage juicing system gives a high, nutritious juice yield and a dry pulp. Plus, you're not limited to juice with this appliance. Grind coffee and spices, mince garlic and herbs, make soy milk, pasta, nut butter, baby food, ice cream, and more.
