Best Juicer on a Budget Buying Guide
To buy a juicer on a budget, here are some of the things to look out for.
The speed of a juicer depends on whether it is a centrifugal or masticating juicer. A centrifugal juicer runs at extremely high speeds and gives you juice in seconds. A masticating juicer is also called a slow or cold-press juicer. It runs at low speeds and takes longer to extract the juice. Depending on your needs, choose the speed you prefer.
If you do not want to cause an uproar in the morning while everyone is asleep, go for a masticating juicer. Most of these juicers run at under 60 decibels and silent enough for you to make a glass of juice without waking everyone up.
Ensure the juicer you buy has fewer detachable parts. These parts should be dish washable, and a brush should be included for washing the filter and blades.
If you have a small kitchen, the juicer’s footprint should be compact, making it easy to store it away when not in use.
Ensure the power cord will reach the outlet. However, this is only important if the juicer will sit permanently on your counter. If you store it away after use, you can use it anywhere there is a power outlet.
Ensure the juicer’s housing unit and parts like the jug are made from durable material. Check that it is not made of cheap and fragile plastic that will break within no time.
Ease of Use
You will presumably use the juicer a lot, and the one you buy should be easy to use and assemble. A juicer with too many detachable parts is one to steer clear of. How many functions does it have? Is it something you can learn in a day, or a beginner can learn to use with ease?
Buying a juicer on a budget does not mean you purchase substandard appliances. There are numerous affordable, yet value for money juicers in the market. Some cheaper models will give you the same functions as a high-end juicer.
If the juicer promises the world and under delivers, you will feel cheated. Go through user comments on the manufacturer’s website and check for complaints, if any, and then choose accordingly.
