We started our Juicers 101 by looking at the most basic juicers – hand powered Citrus juicers. To read that post go here. Next up is to breeze through Electric Citrus and then we will go into vegetable juicing
Electric Citrus Juicers
What you get with an electric juicer is speed, you also get more juice from your fruit. With an electric motor powering the reamer you expect better extraction and drier pulp.
So let's look at some of the best selling electric juicers and see what we get…
The body is made from stainless steel and the inner parts that do the juicing are made of black plastic and can be removed and are dishwasher safe. The Juiceman juices citrus fruit from little limes and lemons to grapefruit.
Check it out at Amazon for the best price.
For a more powerful Citrus Juicer, 85 Watts, the Tribest CS-1000 Citristar Citrus Juicer might be your cup of tea, if you see what I mean. it is easy to clean and gets a score of 4.5/5 from 248 reviews so far!
And the neat white appearance will fit into most kitchens pretty well
Coming in at a little under $200 the Breville Ikon and other models have to show clear advantages if they are going to justify their higher price.
Let's look at the Breville Ikon now.
This has a very powerful motor – 900 Watts which has 5 speeds to choose from – up to an amazing 12,500 rpm (revs per minute).
This is clearly going to make short work of even big juicing jobs. An 8 ounce glass of juice is claimed to take 5 seconds.
This might be the best electric citrus juicer.It is described as having industrial strength and being "whisper quiet".
The strength is provided by the die cast design. The exterior is brushed stainless steel and is backed by a 1 year warranty.
