Making sure you’ll find the UK’s best juicer 2016 suitable for your needs.
If you want to get your “five-a-day” quickly or just love the taste of fresh, healthy and self made juice, you’ll need to get a juicer which prepares it in the quickest and easiest way possible.
It won’t be easy to find though. You’ll notice they come in many different styles, types, functions and prices leaving you a little confused as to what actually is the best juicer for you.
Our best juicer review 2016 let’s you know all you need to look out for when buying a juicer machine, summed up on one page.
Summed up in a few short points, here’s what the best juicer machine should have no matter how much it costs.
We’ll explain these functions along with a couple of handy and quality extras down below.
A juicer is not a blender or a smoothie maker. It might do a similar job but in the end if you want clear, tasty juice without any pulp you’ll need either a centrifugal juicer or a masticating juicer.
Here’s what you need to know about them.
The most affordable and widely available juicer machines are centrifugal juicers. They are certainly the most popular.
Centrifugal juicers work by shredding ingredients using toothed blades on the bottom of a rapidly spinning sieve basket. A spinning force then separates the juice from the pulp which flies into the pulp bin whilst your juice goes straight into your jug or container.
The best juicers have at least two speed settings for hard and soft fruit and veggies or will sometimes even include “soft fruit” discs too. With these you may juice berries which common juicers usually struggle with.
Also called cold press or slow juicers and tend to be more expensive in general as they’re usually available from specialist kitchen online shops.
These juicer machines will crush fruit and veggies by using slowly rotating gears (augers) and press out the juice through a perforated screen.
You’ll choose either between one gear pressing against its housing; a single auger or two meshed gears turning against each other; a twin auger.
The best juicers of this kind will even be able grind coffee, make pasta or may be used as mincers.
Here you’ll see where the strenghts of both juicer types lies and were to look out.
Centrifugal juicers will be less suitable for juicing greens, wheatgrass and soft fruits such as berries.
Masticating juicers tend to have lots of parts which makes cleaning more of a struggle. Also they are often very expensive.
“The best centrifugal juicers come with special discs to process soft fruits like berries or bananas. You’ll pay a little more but it is often a suitable alternative to masticating juicers.”
Many other juicer reviews often recommend a “Nutribullet” as a top juicer but remember, it’s a blender. There is actually a big difference between the two in the way they actually work and our review entirely focuses on finding the UK’s best JUICER, not BLENDER.
A blender will simply crush an entire fruit straight into a cup with the pulp meaning it doesn’t separate the juice from the rest. This is nice for smoothies but not if you really want clear fruit juice.
To achieve this, the best juicer should have a couple of the following features. The more, the better.
|Jug||Not all juicers come with a jug to collect the juice in. The most useful include a jug with a foam separator. This is a plastic barrier which allows you to pour juice but holds back any foam.|
|Drip-Stop Spout||Stops any remaining juice inside the machine from dripping out onto your worktop after you’ve finished juicing. Look out for drip-stop spouts which work by flipping upwards, as these tend to be the most effective. Also check if you can fit a glass under the spout.|
|XL Feed Chute||Extra-large feeding tube that can fit whole fruit. This saves time, as you don’t need to mess about pre-chopping fruit and veg.|
|Non-Slip Feet||Helps to keep your juicer steady as it whizzes fruit and vegetables.|
|Pusher||This fits into the feed chute and lets you safely push small fruit and vegetables into the juicer without the risk of losing your fingers.||Safety Lock Lid||Most juicers have a safety lock lid. This means the juicer won’t work unless the lid is clicked into place securely.||Speed Setting||You can select a slow speed for softer fruits and a higher speed for harder fruits and vegetables such as carrots. Masticating juicers usually have a reverse gear, which can help to clear any blockages.|
|Soft-Fruit Disc||The best centrifugal juicers have this extra attachment so you can add softer fruits, like berries, to your juices.|
Many consumers are very pleased with a cheap juicing machine until they have to clean it for the first time. Especially if the juicer has awkwardly shaped parts which are too vulnerable for the dishwasher, one starts to think twice about using the juicer again after spending 40 min cleaning it by hand.
The best juicers will have simple, separate parts that are dishwasher safe and if not at least have custom made cleaning utensils to make cleaning the juicer machine somewhat bearable and quick.
This way you won’t be dumping the machine after your first wash-up.
We all want to get away with a good bargain especially when buying a machine that ranges up to 400£. Our juicer review considers that good quality juicer machines can be had for a reasonable price.
Expect to pay more if you really want to go full pro with a masticating juicer. If you seek a more standard juicer for occasional juicing you can buy a good one for around 40-60£. Juicer Sales will often be very profitable as some offers have discounts of up to 80%!
To be sure you’re buying the country’s best we’ll list a couple of brands that are popular and known to produce good quality juicers and other home appliances so you can be sure that your machine won’t break within 4 weeks.
