With a cold press juicer you can prepare delicious natural drinks, rich in vitamins, minerals and other healthy nutrients.
Cold press juicers are small kitchen appliances that offer tastier, nutritionally-rich juice. Also called slow-press or masticating juicers, they produce less heat than other models preserving more nutrients found in fruits and vegetables.
Traditional juicers usually use fast spinning blades to produce juice, while a cold press juicer uses a slow-motion to press and squeeze fruits and vegetables, and extract the most juice out of the produce. This is the greatest advantage of a cold press juicer. Cold pressing your fruits and vegetables rather than high speed grinding them, helps keep the nutrients and enzymes intact and ultimately, the result is a healthier juice.
The working principle of this juicer is basically ‘masticating’ or simply put, chewing and grinding of different kinds of produce into pulp. The pulp is slowly pushed forward by the auger gear, while the juicer cuts and chews the produce into the paste. The paste is then pushed through a fine-screen strainer which separates the juice from the pulp. The complete process happens at low speed which enables for the healthiest nutrients and enzymes of the fruits and vegetables preserved.
Low operating speed also helps avoid the heating of the produce ensuring intact cellular structure of fruits and vegetables. That eliminates juice oxidation what means that the best nutritional value of produce is maintained. If planning to use the juicer frequently (on a daily basis), for a better performance, buy a commercial cold press juicer. Advantages of a commercial cold press juicer include:
- Efficiency: With a commercial cold press juicer you can efficiently prepare juices using different types of vegetables and fruits, as well as green leafy veggies, sprouts, wheat-grass, herbs and more.
- Versatility: Commercial cold press juicer is an effective yet versatile small kitchen appliance. Most models allow you to prepare not only juices, but also ice creams, sorbets, baby food, pasta sauces, etc.
- Easy to clean: Commercial cold press juicer design is very simple, which make the cleaning process super easy. All you need to do is pour water through the juicer, turn the motor on and allow it to self-clean. Then pull it apart to clean all the parts thoroughly.
There are many different manufacturers offering commercial cold press juicers. You can search different brands online or look for a retailer that sells these appliances. By comparing the features and cost you should be able to choose the juicer that best suits your needs.
