The best Slow Juicers at Cheapido
Would you like to have a tasty 'living' juice? With a slow juicer you can! But what is a slow juicer? Let us explain. Because the juice is pressed at a low speed and is separated from the pulp, you preserve maximum flavour, vitamins, minerals and enzymes. Not just fruit, but also spinach, mint, lettuce and other leafy vegetables can be pressed with a slow juicer. Save money on a slow juicer from Cheapido!
What is a slow juicer?
You might have heard the name before, as it is quite a popular machine. A slow juicer slowly presses juice from fruits, vegetables and other ingredients. Other than regular juicers or extractors use centrifugal force to sling out juice, a slow juicer grinds down the ingredients and slowly presses out the juices. The result: more and better juice from a slow juicer.
How exactly does a slow juicer work?
A slow juicer uses pressing and grinding motions on your ingredients, which better preserves nutrients and enzymes. The result is a 'living' juice full of goodness. This high yield not only produces higher quality juice, but also a larger amount of it.
What can a slow juicer process?
Slow juicers can press both soft and hard fruits and vegetables and completely separates the pulp from the juice. You can easily make a healthy carrot or cucumber juice. It is also much more efficient than a centrifugal juicer: because of its economical approach, it uses fewer ingredients for the same amount of juice. This leads to less money spent on ingredients and less waste. It also uses less energy.
What are the differences between slow and regular juicers?
The main difference lies in the method of extracting juice: A centrifugal juicer uses a sharp grater that rotates at a very high speed. This allows oxygen to mix with the juice, which causes it to oxidate very fast. This process can be recognised by discolouration and the separation of solid and liquid parts of the juice.
The fast rotating speed also produces a lot of heat. Vitamins, antioxidants and especially enzymes are very sensitive to temperature and are lost quicker in a regular juicer. Thanks to its slow operating speed, a slow juicer does not have these problems.
With a slow juicer, you need fewer fruits and vegetables to produce a glass of juice, which at the same time has a higher amount of vitamins and enzymes.
What else can you make with a slow juicer?
You can process much more than just fruits and vegetables with a slow juicer. Herbs and nuts can be pressed, you can make baby food and with some horizontal slow juicers even pasta! Pasta dough can be added to the machine, but you can also make a vegetable pasta from courgette. Large chunks of vegetables are then turned into long strands just like spaghetti!
