Centrifugal Juicer Buyers Guide
First, cleaning the juicers needs to be easy. So, look for juicers that make it easy to disassemble and assemble parts needing cleaning. Moreover, these parts need to be dishwasher safe.
Second, with a small chute, you may need to spend time cutting up fruits and vegetable into pieces small enough to go through the chute. However, with a large chute, you save time by not having to cut fruits and vegetable too small. Also, with a larger chute, you will need to check that the juicer comes with a tamper to push the large chunks.
Third, these juicers run at high speeds, so they do make more sound than, say, masticating juicers. So, instead of just getting any high speed juicer, get one which creates the least noise. Also, you may want to consider getting one without a pulp ejection system, because the ejection system create more noise.
Fourth, centrifugal juicers need power to spin blades fast. In fact, typical power ratings of these juicers is more than 700 watts.
Fifth, if you are constrained by your counter, you may want to consider getting a smaller juicer. However, you want to get a juicer with enough capacity to meet your juicing needs.
Next, centrifugal juicers typically rotate at fast speeds. In fact, the blades can rotate anywhere from 6,000 to 18,000 revolutions per minute. Consequently, you can get apple juice within 30 seconds. And, this may be important if you are rushed in the morning.
However, instead of just getting a fast juicer, get one with several speed options. So, if there is time, juice at a slower speed to extract the enzymes and nutrients.
By the way, centrifugal juicers work well with soft or hard fruits and vegetables.
Finally, a good warranty is an indicator of quality. In fact, the longer the warranty period, the more likely the juicer is going to last a longer time without breaking down. Meanwhile, juicers come with a typical warranty period ranging from 1 to 3 years.
