Having to chop your produce into tiny pieces, to fit into an equally tiny chute often put even even the most die hard juice connoisseur off of traditional Masticating Juicers. This is now a thing of the past – with machines like the Retro Cold Press on the juicing block, you can now fit whole apples, pears and even cucumbers into their whole fruit chute with built in slicing blades. So, the only thing you’ll be cutting into, is your prep time. Oh, and cleaning time – we’re talking minutes to take apart, rinse and put back together.
Is Cold Press juice better?
Quality of juice is one of the most important factor for the keen juicers among us and cold pressed is simply the finest freshly extracted juice you can get. These machines crush and then press the produce so there is less heat friction, which means slower oxidation, that in turn equals a better-quality juice. Using the aforementioned Retro Cold Press, for example, juices at just 65 rpm, whilst the average fast juicer can go at a breakneck 10,000-15,000 rpm! Because of this, cold press juices can be stored for up to five times longer with minimal loss of nutrition – making them perfect if you’re doing a juice diet and want to make your juices a day or two in advance to store in the fridge.
Don’t get us wrong, we love fast juicers/centrifugal juicers too. They still produce nutritious and delicious juices and are fantastic for those who just want to juice and go. But cold press really is the next level, and with a new age of technology making these juicers more functional than ever before, we’re now able to get the best of both nutrition and convenience.
What about my leafy greens!
Masticating juicers were born for extracting every last drop of juice from dark, leafy greens such as kale, spinach and more obscure ingredients like wheatgrass and barley grass, allowing you to take full advantage of the wealth of nutrition available.
Another huge win for cold press juicers is their versatility. Some upright Masticating juicers, don’t just stop at yielding the finest freshly extracted juices, oh no, they’ve now upped the ante even further with the added capability of producing nut milks and refreshing fruit sorbets.
Are Cold Press Juicers expensive?
Masticating juicers are generally more pricey than centrifugal juicers however It’s also worth giving a nod to the fact that the price of cold press juicers has also come down massively over the years, closing the gap between centrifugal juicers and cold press juicers – making quality nutrition more accessible for all.
So, if you want to raise your nutritional juicing standard, cold press is definitely the way to go.
