Everything You Need to Know About Juicers

Juicers or juice extractors have long been revered for providing a tasty and affordable way to get your daily servings of fruits and vegetables. You can find new, gently used, and Certified Refurbished juicers for sale on eBay.

Types of Juicers

Juicers are typically categorized by how they juice foods. Some of the most common types of juice extractors are:

  • Centrifugal juicers: Use a flat cutting blade attached to the bottom of a fast-spinning strainer
  • Citrus presses: Shred the flesh of the food matter
  • Grinder juicers: Use a special blade designed to grind food matter down into small pieces or even a powder
  • Masticating juicers: Use an auger that crushes food as it passes through a chute, then separates juice and pulp by squeezing the matter slowly
  • Slow juicers: Crush the food matter—also known as cold-press juicers
  • Squeezer juicers: Separate the pulp and peel before crushing the food matter
  • Steam juicers: Use steam to extract the juice from the food matter

Juice extractors come with an array of different features, each of which may or may not be useful to you. Some of the most common and useful juice extractor features include:

What Else to Look for in a Juicer

One key factor to consider in the juice extractor that you decide to buy is whether you prefer a manual or an electric appliance. You may also want to select your juicer machine based on the material from which it's made. Juicers may be made of steel, stainless steel, silicone, polypropylene, plastic, ABS plastic, metal, glass, or aluminum. Picking a juice extractor based on material is largely a matter of complementing the existing style and design of your kitchen appliances and fixtures. Another matter of style and preference is the color you choose. Luckily, there are many options.
