Top of the Range Juicing Appliances

There are a wide range of juicers on the market today. If you want the best then perhaps you will buy a Green Star GS-1000 juicer. They are not cheap but have a host of different features that make it an attractive machine to own. This model is the cheapest Green Star juicer but that does not mean it is low cost. Typically even this model will cost you over $400. So what is it about these products that makes them so expensive? It is possible to find centrifugal juicers for under $100 so what is going on?

For a start, if you purchase a Green Star GS-1000 you are not getting a centrifugal juicing appliance. This machine is a twin gear juicer. What this means is that the produce that you feed into the machine is crushed between two gears that rotate in an opposite direction. This helps to extract maximum juice from whatever ingredients you use.

Twin gear juicers are thought to produce the most nutritious juice from any type of juicer, better than centrifugal and masticating machines. The reason for this is that a twin gear juicer works at much slower speeds than the other types of machines. For example, if you buy a Green Star GS-1000 you get an appliance that works at 110 RPM. This is in contrast to typical centrifugal juicers like the Breville BJE200XL that operates at 13,000 RPM. Faster is not always better. Higher speeds produce more heat which leads to oxidation of they liquid that is extracted. Therefore the amount of nutrients available will be less.

In a sense, a Green Star machine takes better care of the juice that it extracts meaning that it will oxidize more slowly and contain more readily available vitamins, minerals and nutrients. If you want the best type of juicer on the market today, consider a Green Star GS-1000.
