A guide to choosing the right juicer for you, and making the most of it once it's on your counter.

HOW IT WORKS

A high-speed, or centrifugal, juicer shreds food and then separates the liquid from the pulp through high-speed spinning. High-speed juicers make incredibly fast work of large quantities of food and feature wide feed tubes that allow many types of ingredients to be juiced with little or no prep.

Speed: The faster process makes a high-speed juicer a great fit if you make juice for four or more people at a time.

Less prep: Many foods don't require any prep prior to juicing. For example, whole apples can be juiced.

Less pulp: Juice from a high-speed juicer is great for people who prefer minimal pulp in their juice, though the fiber content is lower.

Leafy greens: Though high-speed juicers can handle leafy greens like spinach and kale, they cannot juice wheatgrass.

Sound: After the food is placed in the food tube, the sound should be comparable to a blender on its highest setting.

Shelf life: Because high-speed juicing exposes food to more air, it's a good fit for people who tend to drink their juice right away, as the juice has a shorter shelf life.

HOW IT WORKS

“Bluicing” is the latest innovation in making fresh juice at home, thanks to the new Bluicer developed by Breville. The interchangeable design allows you to blend, juice or both (also known as “bluice”) by juicing ingredients directly into the blender jug to create tasty blended drinks with the same motor.

Low heat: The Cold Spin Technology spins fresh ingredients at a low temperature for the highest possible juice yield while preserving the most nutrients.

Max versatility: Make traditional smoothies or juices, or try frappes, slushies and frozen cocktails made with freshly juiced ingredients, all in one machine.

Little prep: The extra-wide 3 1/2" feed chute accepts whole fruits and vegetables without pre-cutting.

Countertop savings: Since the machine can double as a juicer or a blender, it can play the role of two appliances, with the countertop space of just one.

HOW IT WORKS

Whole-food juicing utilizes a blender rather than a traditional juicer to create fruit and vegetable-based drinks. The blender creates juice by continuously circulating the contents through the path of a spinning blade at the base of the jar. The blade purees the food into smaller pieces until the desired consistency is reached.

Speed: The fastest method, whole-food juicing takes a fraction of the time of traditional juice making.

The most fiber: Liquid and pulp are not separated, so juice is high in pulp and contains the ingredients' full fiber content.

Cursory prep: Anything that goes into the blender ends up in your juice, so some prep is required, such as removing seeds and stems.

More yield: A larger yield of juice is generated from the same amount of ingredients.

Extra liquid: Some recipes will require additional liquids in the blender to ensure smooth processing in whole-food juicing.

Leafy greens: Greens such as spinach and kale are suitable ingredients for whole-food juicing, but wheatgrass can only be processed in a slow juicer.

Shelf life: Because ingredients are aerated during blending, whole-food juice is best if consumed right away.

Cleanup: Whole food juicing offers the advantage of any easy cleanup since there is only a single container to wash.

HOW IT WORKS

Count on the latest generation of citrus presses to squeeze every delicious drop of juice from your favourite citrus fruits. Many of these essential kitchen tools also feature dishwasher-safe parts for quick, easy cleaning.

Style: Choose from a great collection of designs and colours.

Versatility: Juicers accommodate everything from petite lemons and limes to the largest grapefruits.

Efficiency: Classic citrus reamers are designed for complete extraction.

Maximum yield: State-of-the-art machines help you extract the most juice, with minimal effort.

Custom juicing: Strainers efficiently separate out seeds and pulp.

Easy cleanup: Most removable parts are dishwasher-safe.

Our Test Kitchen's Top Juicing Tips

PREP AHEAD

Juice is best when freshly made, but you can save time by prepping ahead: thoroughly wash all ingredients, remove stems, pits and tough skins, and cut everything just small enough that it will fit through the mouth of the juicer.

SPEED UP — OR DOWN

If your juicer has more than one speed, don't forget to use them both. Hard produce like apples adn beets are processed on high and soft ones like spinach and cabbage are processed on low.

SWEETEN YOUR GREENS

Dark leafy greens like kale and chard are super-healthy, but not everyone loves their flavour. The big secret? An apple or pear will almost completely disguise the taste of the greens. Adding sweeter fruits to your green juice will make it feel like an indulgent smoothie.

SPICE IT UP

Boost the flavour and healthiness of juices with a pinch of a spice. For example, studies show turmeric has anti-inflammatory properties, ground black pepper is thought to aid in nutrient absorption - and cinnamon can have a regulatory effect on blood sugar.

WASTE NOT

The pulp can be incorporated into a variety of dishes such as vegetable soups, veggie patties, muffins or even meatballs! Alternatively, use the leftover pulp from juicing fruits and veggies for compost, which will enhance the harvest from your home garden.
