For those of you to whom this subject is new, I will quickly explain the difference between an ordinary juicer and slow-juicer also known as a cold-press juicer.
There is a difference in a price. Slow-juicers cost more but are worth every penny.
Centrifugal juicers work by shredding fruits or vegetables rapidly into small pieces, and the spinning force separates juice from the pulp.
Slow-juicers crush fruits and vegetables slowly with rotating gears and press the juice out. Thanks to that it keeps the phytonutrients, vitamins, fibre minerals and digestive enzymes gently alive in the juice. One glass of juice from a slow-juicer is equivalent to the daily recommended 7 portions of fruits and vegetables.
What you need to take into consideration aside from the price when you are buying a slow-juicer:
1. The best juicers will squeeze loads of juice and leave a little rest overs from your fruits and vegetables.
2. It needs to be easy to use, assemble and clean.
3. Not too noisy.
4. Should have a safety lock system, so the juicer will not work until it is assembled correctly.
