There are a lot of different types of juicers that are available out there, but not a lot of people know how they all work. Some people are very curious about the mechanics behind these juicers and are looking to educate themselves about it. If you happen to be one of these curious cats, then this article can be a good and useful one for you.
The main difference that comes between different types of juicers is how they function. All the other differences usually root from this one very difference, which effects other things like the quality of juice produced, the amount of heat and noise produced while juicing, the price and the amount of care required, in terms of the clean-up process.
The way most centrifugal juicers work is that they have a strainer on the inside. This strainer is what spins at a high rpm, hence creating the centrifugal force. This centrifugal force is what forces out the juice from the fruits that you put inside the machine. Those of you who have taken physics before, would have a very clear picture by now.
A masticating juicer basically works on a single gear. The principle is that in a slow, although efficient manner, the auger is what presses out all the juice from whatever you put inside the machine. It is not just restricted to fruits but can even work in the same fashion on vegetables.
This one is a little fancier. It has two gears, unlike the other juicers. It gives you the highest yield of juice because how it works is that it uses two augers to very finely crush whatever you put inside it.
I think the best juicer to buy would depend on what your needs are.
