Best Masticating Juicers iMore 2020

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.

Which one should you choose?

Our top choice is the Aicok Slow Masticating Juicer. 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 80 RPM 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. A two-year warranty as well as 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. The 80 RPM dual-stage juicing system gives a high, nutricious 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.
