I prefer a masticating juicer as you generally get more juice. The juice is of a higher quality as it doesn’t get heated. This type is easier to clean too.
Centrifugal juicers are great as well – so don’t be put off completely if that’s what you have/can afford to buy, they are fast and easy to use.
If you are thinking about juicing a lot and long term – masticating would be my choice. Do your research. I recommend ‘John Kohler’ from Discount Juicers.com – he has lots of videos on YouTube to compare different juicers which means you know what you’re in for! Simply type in John Kohler and the juicer you’re interested in.
Omega 8006: MORE INFO/BUY HERE
My top choice… Capable of juicing fruits and vegetables and also an excellent wheatgrass juicer, the Omega 8006 Juicer and Nutrition Centre is now fitted with with a juicing screen and auger made from GE Ultem which is 8 times stronger than previous parts. Not just a juice extractor, it is also able to process nut butters, sorbets, ice cream and baby food. It is easy to clean and has a great yield. Totally worth the money. Read more via the link above.

Incredible Juicer, awesome quality, extracts all the nutrition no problem – the yield is off the charts and the pulp comes out like dust. BUT this is so expensive I couldn’t afford one myself. This is however a juicer for life!

Not enough money to buy a new juicer?
- Borrow a juicer from a friend!
- OR – if you have a blender and don’t want to buy a jucier yet – buy a muslin cloth bag/nut mylk bag and strain out your blended fruits and veggies instead! This is time consuming and can be messy but it’s a lot cheaper than buying a new juicer if you don’t have one!
