The Juicer

From the moment health experts begun discussing the unique nutrients and important elements fruits and vegetables contain, people are browsing through kitchen utensil shelves in their effort to locate the best juicer that can help them stay healthy. However, as different equipment are used to perform a variety of functions, choosing a juicer is not only a matter of price, brand, or shape, but rather an issue of covering the specific consumer needs.

Fulfilling or even surpassing one’s expectations is not an easy task for any kind of company. Electronic juice manufacturers, had originally been focusing on improving the performance of their equipment, but as years have passed and consumer needs have increased or even altered, juice production had to incorporate style and functionality apart from covering the required safety and quality concerns. Thus, producers quickly abandoned the idea of introducing the ‘best juicer,’ since that was not anymore a technology-based decision. After performing the required consumer research, they focused on improving their most successful juice designs and continued to look for new ways to cover emerging needs with their newer juice versions.

There are several styles of juicers available on the market today and some are better suited for juicing certain kinds of fruits and vegetables than others. Yet, since there is no ‘perfect’ juicer available that will perform every juicing operation with equal quality, a prospective juicer buyer has to evaluate carefully his or her needs and then carefully purchase the appliance that will cover most, if not all, of them. So, before buying a juicer, one should consider the particular factors that will make this type of choice easier.

First, there is the ease of cleaning. Because the juicer extracts the fluids out of a vegetable and/or fruit, it is important that its components can be easily cleaned either by hand or a washing machine. Then, there is the issue of noise level. Some types of juicers produce much more noise than others, making users feel uncomfortable or even annoyed. Selecting the model that one feels comfortable using is also a matter of noise, especially because operating a machine that will irritate a person’s nerves can lead to it being stored somewhere and juice preparation to stop. Third, as many users and experts assert, different speeds result in different juice qualities. Depending on the speed of an electronic juicer, more or less air enters the juice while it is being extracted from the fruits or vegetables. The oxygen can then accelerate the speed with which the fruit’s or vegetable’s nutrients are oxidized, affecting its taste and nutritional level. Another issue is the length of a juicer’s warranty. Different manufacturers, offer different warranty durations and since these types of products can be easily mishandled, it is always wise to have at least a year of free service before replacing a broken juicer. Finally, one has to consider the types of produce intended to be juiced. The juicer selected has to be compatible with their use and substance.
