Vegetable Juicers

Juicing your vegetables makes it easy to meet your daily dietary requirements. It is also an easier way of ensuring nourishment for toddlers and children. Many vegetables which may not appeal to their taste buds when eaten whole, can be easily given in the form of juice. Juicing your vegetables eliminates the need to cook them first, thus packing more nutrition in each serving.

A good vegetable juicer needs to be powerful, to be able to juice hard foods like carrots. It should be able to juice leafy greens reasonably well. Above all, it should be easy to clean and de-clog. This is because certain vegetables like celery are quite fibrous and their pulp can be hard to remove.

Although most juicers have the ability to juice both fruit and vegetables, there are a few that excel at juicing vegetables in particular. Given below are 3 of my favorite vegetable juice extractors.

It can effectively handle most vegetables, thanks to the slow-moving (80 rpm) augur. It features a unique upright design that is space-saving and also gives the juicer much-needed steadiness. The VRT350 has a 2-stage process which first extracts the pulp, then squeezes it for better extraction. The wide spout allows for fast pouring and significantly reduces the standing time of the juice.

The juicer to buy for tricky items such as celery, ginger, rhubarb and even wheatgrass. Its triturating (twin-gear) design makes it more efficient than single-gear masticating juicers. The Green Star is a multifunctional unit and can be used to make nut butter and baby food as well. In addition, it comes with a wonderful breadstick maker set, making it an all-in-one appliance.
 

Waring JEX328 Health Juice Extractor (Review coming soon!)

The brushed stainless-steel housing makes the Waring easy to wipe clean. The motor produces 400 Watts of power which is good for any hard vegetable. Since it’s a centrifugal juicer, it doesn’t do a very good job of juicing greens like spinach and wheatgrass. For everything else, it is quite effective. At its price, the Waring JEX328 is the vegetable juicer to buy if you’re looking for a relatively low-end unit but don’t want to compromise on power and efficiency.
