Healthy lifestyle with juicer
You’ll agree with the fact that juicing is a crucial element of living a healthy lifestyle. Think of this: the fresh juice of a vegetable or fruit combo is abundant with minerals, antioxidants, enzymes and vitamins which are often destroyed when cooked or processed. You can enjoy these benefits if you have a juicer. The question is, how do you buy the best juicer your your needs? Here is the basic buying guide.
Ease of use
You’ll want a juicer that’s ‘a breeze’ to disassemble and clean. If your juicer has many parts then that becomes a headache. You can imagine how much it takes to put every thing together. There is a catch though; while it may be a good idea to go for a juicer with fewer components, you may have to do with limited functionality. In general, the more components a juicer has, the more functions it can handle. For instance, a masticating juicer can also churn butter or make pasta.
If you thought noise level wasn’t a big deal when it comes to buying a juicer then you’re wrong. Surely, you wouldn’t want to jolt everybody whenever you’re making your favorite smoothie, would you? I’d recommend the Super Angel SS Twin Gear Juicer. You’ll love how it purrs.
Another factor that you should consider is the size of your juicer. Go for one that fits neatly into your kitchen space. This is what worked for me – I bought a juicer which generated enough volume of juice (6 glasses a day) and whose medium size didn’t take much of my small kitchen.
Other than the size, noise level and ease of use, price, power and warranty come in handy. As such, it’s also a good idea to check out juicer reviews online. They’ll guide you into making a smart decision. Adios amigo, a glass of juice awaits me.
