We’re truly spoilt for choice when shopping for kitchen helpers. These days, there’s a gadget for almost everything you do in the kitchen. From something as mundane as slicing an egg to more complicated procedures like kneading bread, technology is making food preparation quick and convenient.
One particular kitchen appliance that’s quickly becoming a must-have in most homes, is the juicer. The popularity of juicing means that more homeowners prefer to make their own, using blenders, juicers, juice extractors and slow juicers. It’s quick, convenient and helps you to save money in the long run. Here are a few different types of juicers you can consider.
If you want your juice but can’t be bothered to cut the fruits…
The Bosch MES3500 is a powerful juice extractor that works on whole fruits without the need for pre-cutting. There’s an extra-large filling tube that’s big enough to fit in whole apples! This really cuts down on the amount of time needed to prep for your juices. The motor runs on two speeds, and is powerful enough to pummel through the core of an apple. This juicer even has a removable pulp container with a 2-litre capacity.
If you like both pulpless juices and chunky smoothies…
The gentle squeezing technology of the VitaExtract slow juicer comes with a MixControl feature that allows you to adjust the amount of pulp. Some prefer a smooth fruit juice while others enjoy thicker, pulpy fruit juice. This high-performance appliance lets you control the thickness of your drink. Another highlight of the VitaExtract is the addition of three types of filter. Swap between the filters for healthy juices, thick smoothies or chunky sorbets.
If you don’t have a lot of countertop space for a juicer…
This compact slow juicer from Philips takes up minimal space on the kitchen counter, and that’s a bonus for any space-starved homemaker. Aside from its compact design, the Viva Collection slow juicer is a powerful machine that extracts the natural flavours of fruits and vegetables with minimal foam residue. Feel like having a refreshing juice drink, pop the fruits in and press a single button for easy operation.
If you want more juice from your fruits…
Touting itself as a machine that provides “maximum juice with minimal fuss”, the Avance Collection juicer is a powerful yet simple-to-use appliance targeted at the busy homeowner. Thanks to an innovative juice extraction system with an “upside down sieve”, the juicer purportedly extracts up to 10 percent more juice! Other attractive features include the QuickClean technology that should make chores a little easier: simply wipe down the smooth surfaces.
If you want to do more than extract fruit juice…
When you’re thinking about juicing, the kitchen blender might not be the first thing that comes to mind. But this powerful appliance will pulverise your fruits into an ultra-fine blend (or thicker smoothie, if that’s what your prefer) ready for consumption. The Le Blender can withstand high and low temperatures, meaning you can crush ice or blend veloute soups.
If you want more health benefits from your juices…
A juice extractor, smoothie-maker and citrus press, all combined into one machine. The Magimix Le Duo Plus XL is a powerful appliance that claims to be even more beneficial than a traditional slow juicer. Thanks to its make up and motor, the Le Duo PLus XL is capable of producing 66 percent more Vitamin C and 86 percent more juice than a traditional juicer, and 81 percent more antioxidants than a slow juicer. The addition of a citrus press (for fruits like oranges and grapefruits) makes this a versatile appliance.
