Juicers for Fruit and Vegetables

Types of Juicers

There are 3 main types of juicers:

  • mechanical juicers
  • steam juicers
  • mechnical presses

Mechanical juicers are the machines, like the Waring juicer that grind the fruit or vegetable to a puree then separate the juice by means of a screen spinning at high speed. They are efficient at extraction, but often are prone to clogging.

Steam juicers cook the fruit or vegetable with steam and extract the juice by using heat to break down the cell structure. Steam juicers are often used for making grape juice.

Mechanical presses are usually so expensive as to be priced out of the consumer budget.  Typically, they are used at apple cider mills and wineries.

Mechnical Fruit and Vegetable Juicers

Mechanical juicers can act as a food processor/blender and a sieve; all in one:  Perfect for making jellies and juices.  Here are some of the top rated juicers, from low to modestly high prices (you can always go higher in price... but the reviews don't show them to be substantially better)


Steam Juicers

Steam Juicers are a safe, natural, old-fashioned way to extract juice from fruit (such as apples, peaches, blueberries, acai, pomegranates, etc.) in prepapration for drinking fresh, freezing, making jelly or home canning and bottling.   Below are a variety of steeam juicers with linksl to reviews and purchasing information. See this page for steam juicers. And strainers are here.

See these pages for directions and recipes for making and canning the juice!
