When it comes to juicers, the centrifugal juicer will cost you less to purchase but give you the same great benefits you are looking for in other juicers. Many people are seeking out juicers because they provide many ways to get more natural foods into your diet. One of the reasons these juicers are so much more inexpensive is because it costs less to build it. Even the motor works at a much higher speed than other juicers. The process for how it works is pretty straightforward; the juice is extracted from the fruit by spinning the fruit at a high rate of speed. Of course, the fruit has to be in smaller pieces for this to work, so on with the explaining.
The Entire Process in a Nutshell
With a centrifugal juicer, you are able to push food into it, and the pressure pushes it against blades that spin at a high rate of speed. This cuts the food into little pieces that are easier to handle for the juicer. Then the centrifuge process begins as the food is thrown up against the screen at the wall of the juicer. The spinning is so fast that the juice is extracted from the fruit.
The juice is then able to run down into the spout of your juicer and out into your glass. You can keep adding fruit or vegetables to the juicer through a feed chute until your glass is full. Most of these juicers will not operate unless the top is closed on them, allowing only small enough pieces to go in that will fit down the chute. Many of these machines will take fruit up to the size of a whole apple, cutting the fruit and skin into small pieces, leaving behind the skin and seeds.
Disadvantages of Centrifugal Juicers
There are two small disadvantages to a centrifugal juicer. The first one has to do with the amount of heat produced from the high spinning action. Heat destroys some of the nutrients that the fruit holds, so, therefore, you are not getting all the direct nutrients from the fruit or vegetable that you were hoping for. Although this is likely negligible, it is something that you should consider.
The other disadvantage is that the centrifuge does not juice as much of the juice out as other styles of juicers. Since there is not as much direct pressure to the fruit, more of the juice goes to waste. This means that you have to use up more fruit or vegetables per glass of juice. In turn, this costs you more money over the long haul, instead of just buying a more expensive unit up front.
