Who has the time to actually eat their fruit and vegetables anymore? Well, hopefully you do, but for many of us, juicing has become a quick way to pack in a lot of nutrients quickly. You can take fresh, raw produce, whip yourself up a juice, and effectively drink your salad on your way to work. Anybody who has bought fresh juice in the last decade can tell you how expensive it can be, so it makes sense to start juicing at home. But what do you need to consider when buying a juicer? Here are a few things to think about

Fast isn’t always necessarily the best answer. Many people believe that going slow is the best way to juice, which is why masticating juicers are so popular at high-end juice bars. These powerful devices slowly crush the fruit and veggies which extracts a ton of juice but does heat it up. Many believe this creates less oxidation, better preserves the nutrients, and creates a fresher taste.

While the slow route is great if you’ve got the time, sometimes you just want to be able to throw in a bunch of stuff and run out the door in a hurry. High-speed juicers use a combination of cutting discs and mesh filters that may spin at speeds higher than 10,000 rpm. A good one will pulverize anything in its path and leave you with a perfect cup of juice, quickly.

Juicing isn’t exactly a neat and tidy activity. There’s the juice itself, but there’s also all the leftover pulp, and anything that either of those things touches needs to be washed before it dries and gets sticky. Look for juicers that disassemble and are easy to rinse and wash, so you can get back at it again without too much hassle.
