Augers and Blades

First and foremost, the blade is the most critical part of the centrifugal juicer. On the other hand, masticating juicers use augers to squeeze nutrients from fruits and vegetables.


Next, 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.


Now, power, as measured in watts', needs to be high for centrifugal juicers. In fact, the high power rating means the blade can turn fast. Moreover, juicers rated at high power are less likely to jam.

Meanwhile, masticating juicers don't need as much power as the centrifugal juicers.  In fact, typical power ratings of these juicers is 150 to 200 watts.


Because centrifugal juicers operate at high speeds, they are loud. On the other hand, masticating juicers rotating at much slower speeds are quieter. 


Most of all, masticating juicers typically rotate at 80 revolutions per minute. On the other hand, centrifugal juicers rotate at much faster speeds. 


By the way, centrifugal juicers are good for fruits like apples, oranges, pears, as well as beets. However, they aren't suited for leafy vegetables. On the other hand, masticating juicers work well with leafy and other kinds of vegetables as well as fruits. However, fruits like apples may need to be cut before inserting them in masticating juicers.


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.
