The centrifugal juicer has three main benefits over a masticating juicer namely, they are much cheaper, they tend to be easier to clean (a real factor for consideration when you juice regularly) and they have much bigger feeder tubes (enabling whole fruit juicing).
The disadvantages are they yield less juice (around 30%, particularly when juicing soft produce) resulting in higher produce bills over time, they retain less nutrients (up to 60% less) due to the heat produced by the high speed spinning and they cannot juice wheatgrass or sprouts/shoots.
How it works: The produce is fed into the feeder and enters the main chamber where a grater grates the produce into a pulp which is then 'spun out' at high speed against a fine mesh basket. This basket holds the pulp while the juice passes through the mesh and is gathered in a collection cup via a spout. Meanwhile, the pulp is ejected into an attached container.
I recommend that you use free range and organic produce for every recipe, diet, juice and detox found within this site. There is no substitute for good quality food!
