They also run at a lower RPM than the standard vertical single augers. The quality of the juice produced with these machines can be compared to the quality of the hydraulic press above. It also makes wonderful ice cream-like desserts from raw frozen bananas and other fruits. When apple or carrot juice turns brown, it has oxidized and the nutrition has lessened.

Whether you're a strong athlete or suffering from arthritis, these Latch Arms will make it very easy to use this juicer on a daily basis.
Centrifugal Juicers The centrifugal juicer design is one of the oldest juicer designs. This juicer uses a grater or shredder disc and a strainer basket with straight sides to hold the pulp in the machine. The shredder disk is at the bottom of the basket, which revolves at a high speed rpm. The produce is put into the top of the machine, and it pressed through a chute, hits the spinning shredder disc, while the produce is being shred, juice is released.
Generally this style juicer can make quarts before the juicer must be stopped, and the pulp must be removed before further juicing can take place. This is not a continuous juicing appliance. The two centrifugal juicers we sell are the Omega and Omega These machines use stainless steel baskets and ball bearing induction type motors. The Omega offer a 10 year warranty, and the Omega offers a 15 year warranty. This style juicer tends to inject air into the juice so it reduces the nutritional content and oxidizes the juice.
The centrifugal ejection style juice is the next juicer we will be explaining. This juicer operates much the same way as the centrifugal juicer above operates, except for the sides of the basket is slanted. This allows for the basket to be "self-cleaning", so there is no need to stop the juicer and empty it out.
The pulp is ejected out of the machine, usually into a collection bin or basket, that can be lined with a plastic bag to collect the pulp, and then easily discarded. This style juicer is the noisiest of all the juicers. Centrifugal Ejection Wide Feed Chite Juicers Much like the centrifugal ejection juicers, above, except it has the addition of a large feed chute which is 3" in diameter, which allows the user to juice without cutting the produce.
There are benefits and drawbacks to the large feed chute. The units we offer with the large feed chute are: To read more about the advantages and drawbacks of the wide feed units, click here. They are good for juicing most fruits and vegetables. This style juicer creates a less nutritious juice than the slow juicers. The Champion Juicer first grates, then masticates or chews the pulp to further break down the cell-wall structure, and then mechanically presses or squeezes the pulp to extract the juice.
The Champion uses a powerful 1, RPM motor and requires moderate strength to operate. It is definitely not a machine for a physically limited person. It can juice almost every type of vegetable efficiently, including leafy vegetables.
By blocking off the juice spout with the blank or solid plate , the Champion can be used as a homogenizer to make such foods as raw applesauce, tomato sauce and baby food. It can make peanut butter or other nut butters.
It also makes wonderful ice cream-like desserts from raw frozen bananas and other fruits. By assembling the Champion without the blank or juicing screen, it can be used as a grater or to make shave ice. The Champion's motor is manufactured by General Electric and its juicing parts are constructed of stainless steel and nylon; it has been manufactured since the 's.
It is best for juicing most fruits and vegetables. Plastaket also manufacturers a more powerful version of the Champion juicer, its the Champion Commercial model. The difference is that it has a bit more powerful motor. The look of the machine is the same, as well as all the external parts. Due to the way the Champion juicer works, it tends to oxidize the food more than the slow juicers, below. The press juice, its a two step process: The Norwalk and Pure Juicer are electric two step juicers that combines grating and pressing operations into one unit, with this machine, the vegetable or fruit is first grated by a revolving cutter into a linen cloth lined tray, which was then placed into a motor-driven hydraulic press.
A good substitution for the Norwalk juicer, would be to use the Champion Juicer as a grater, and then the Welles press , which are operated manually that squeeze the juice out of the produce. This type of juicer juices fruits especially soft ones better than other types of juicers. Single Auger Horizontal Juicers Cold Press Slow Juicer This juicer produces juice by using a single auger that basically crushes the produce into the walls or screen of the juicer, and in the process extracts the juice.
It runs at 80 RPM, so there is little oxidation. The single auger style juicer has been on the market as a dedicated wheatgrass juicer for many, many years now. Just recently, a new design of the machine allows the single auger style machine to juice wheatgrass as well as other vegetables and fruits.
There are several brands of single auger juicers. This new single auger machine juices wheatgrass about as well as a dedicated wheatgrass juicer and does an excellent job juicing leafy greens.
It will juice fruits and other vegetables about as well as the twin gear juicers below. We found that this type of machine was not as effective at juicing carrots, as the twin gear units. Fruits and non leafy vegetables need to be cut into small "cubes" for best results when using this juicer.
We find that the single auger juicers, do not produce a high yield when juicing carrots, so if you want to juice alot of carrots, this is not the juicer for you. For best results when using this machine, the hard and soft produce needs to be "alternated" when feeding into the juicer.
Dual Stage Single Horizontal Auger Juicers Cold Press Slow Juicer This juicer works like the single auger style juicer above, but upon the initial crushing of the produce, juice is directed through the stage one juicing screen into the juice cup.
The crushed produce continues its way through the machine to the 2nd stage, where there is a finer holed screen to further obtain more juice. With the single stage auger juicers above , the juice is only produced in this second stage. In our tests, this style juicer produced more juice and worked better than the single auger juicers.
There are two brands that sell the dual stage single auger juicers. Omega offers the and model 10 yr warranty. The Omega models are identical except for the color. The is white, and the is a chrome color. The Omega and are the upgraded versions of the and They include a 15 year warranty, as well as an 8x harder auger.
The latest version the dual stage single auger is the Omega NC that is easy to clean and gets a higher yield than previous Omega models. We found that this type of machine was more effective juicing than the single auger style juicer.
This juicer runs at 80rpm. This has several benefits: First, the juicer takes up less counter space. Second, the juicer is better at juicing a wide variety of produce, such as leafy greens, hard vegetables and fruits. Third, total juicing time takes less time because the juicer can feed itself instead of you having to push produce into the juicer. The Omega VRT 10 year warranty , Omega VRT 10 year warranty Omega VRT 15 year warranty were the first generation of this style machine that has a pulp ejection hole in the bottom of the screen that can have a tendency to clog.
The second generation of this machine eliminated the pulp ejection hole in the bottom of the screen which minimizes clogging and the need to pre-cut produce into smaller pieces so it does not clog this hole. They also run at a lower RPM than the standard vertical single augers. The Slowstar 10 year warranty is the most versatile, most powerful and the lowest cost.
There will also be some pulp in the juice if the filters are not used, but the same amount as most other juicers. The stainless parts are comprised of a heavy gauge Surgical Stainless Steel.
All of the Stainless parts are either polished or sandblasted to make the unit look nice and at the same time make it easy to clean. Each one of the baskets is hand balanced, just like the wheels on your car, to achieve virtually no vibration while juicing a wide variety of fruits and vegetables. The Basket is very open so it is easy to clean. The large Stainless Steel Bowl is polished on the outside to a mirror like finish. The inside has a sandblasted finish and is very open so it is easy to clean.
The Stainless Steel Blade efficiently chews up fruits and vegetables without wearing down. When you hold the blade you'll appreciate its weight knowing how durable it will be. The blade has a plastic ring on the outer edge of its underside that has little feet. These feet help the blade float. The floating of the blade will let the motor keep up its Rpm's while you push down on your fruit or vegetable. This is but one more reason why this juicer has very little vibration.
The little white knob that holds the blade in place is called the Spring Clutch Nut. This Spring Clutch Nut allows the blade to float. It only has to be put on finger tight. No tools are needed to change or clean this system.
Your new juicer will stand on a dozen evenly spaced feet. These feet are variable in height, which will help the unit keep from walking across your counter top. Yet soft enough to give the juicer traction while not marking up your counter surface. The cantilever style Latch Arms were a first in the industry.
This allows for easy assembly and disassembly. Whether you're a strong athlete or suffering from arthritis, these Latch Arms will make it very easy to use this juicer on a daily basis.
The chute of this juicer is large enough to accommodate large pieces of fruits and vegetable.
