Best Cheap Vertical Masticating Juicer On The Market
Running into a busy day without preparation is not a good thing for both mental and physic appearance. The common way to start in the morning is a cup of fresh juice which provide the liquids and the nutrients that our body needs after a long night with the freshness. You can get those juice by buying a bottle on the local market but not the freshness or just do it yourself with the help of a juicer. There is plenty of articles writting about juicer but today, we are going to a new aspect of juicer – Brands.
Talking about Brands means you must know what do they have, in this case, is juicers. Let’s get all the small “gear” before go into the “giant brands machine”.
The first juicer type appear and dominating is Centrifugal juicer, but the time pass and Masticating juicer slowly taking over those position with many upgrades and more suits for the customer. There is two main type of Masticating juicer: the Vertical and Horizontal juicer.
The Vertical Auger Juicer has the small footprint. It’s the perfect choice for a small area kitchen.
The vertical design gives this type of self-feed ability. For some fruits and vegetables (carrot, apple or cucumber,…), you just put it into the chute then watch the auger along with screen suck it down and squeeze it.
You will never need to worry about the pulp clog up while juicing and a drip-free cap is great for mixing a variety type of juices plus prevents oxidation. It works great with fruits and hard veggies but not so good with leafy greens, so you need pre-cut the leafy greens before you start.
It has a wide chute that helps you easy to feed and less pre-cut than the other juicers.
The Horizontal Juicer or Horizontal Single Auger Juicer works similarly to the Vertical auger juicer except for the placement of the auger which is horizontal.
The chute size of this type usually small, so you need to pre-cut the fruits and vegetables before you juicing.
When you feed produce into the chute, the auger work along with the screen to slice down and compact produce then squeeze it. It can handle almost everything such as leafy greens, hard fruits, and veggies. You can make butters, frozen desserts or grill coffee beans with this type. And it’s very quiet.
With horizontal design, you will feed the produce to the side of the auger that makes you need using the pusher a lot to push produce into the groove of the drill.
THE DIFFERENT BETWEEN TWO TYPE:
The RPM – revolution per minute
The Vertical Juicer is around 80 rpm and The Horizontal Juicer is around 47 rpm. But thanks to its design, The Horizontal Juicer has processing time shorter than The Vertical Juicer mean you need less time to make a cup of juice when using a Horizontal Juicer.
Size of the feed chute
The Vertical Juicer feed chute tends to have a bigger size The Horizontal Juicer (it’s around 3 inches vs 1.5 inch). Its size effect on how much time you need to make a preparation before juicing, you will waste more time to pre-cut the produce for a smaller one.
The Horizontal Juicer is work great with leafy greens and hard fruits or vegetables. They can make more than a juice like a nut butter, extrude pasta, grind coffee and spices by changing the different nozzles. While The Vertical Juicer is preferred fruits and hard vegetables but not so great for leafy greens. They also have the versatility in processing produce thanks to a mincing attachment which helps you make salsas or frozen sorbets…
The using and cleaning ability
Both of that type are easy to assemble, operate, disassemble and clean. But the screen of The Horizontal Juicer may a bit of clunky to clean cause they have a small metallic part inside the plastics screen.
The Horizontal Juicers tend to be cheaper compared to The Vertical Juicers.
