If you want to take juicing seriously, then an auger juicer is the way to go, as they are extremely versatile. They can juice vegetables, fruits, and even wheatgrass to make limitless juicer recipes. They also have other functions, including the capability to make nut butters, grind coffee beans, homogenize foods, and some can even make homemade pasta!
An auger juicer works with a rotating auger that will literally crush and press the juice out of your produce, which extracts an incredible amount of juice. It rotates at a very low RPM, which generates little heat. Because there is less heat, there is less oxidation, which means that less nutrients and enzymes are killed off in the juicing process. Another benefit of a low RPM is how little noise it makes. Compared to other juicers, such as a centrifugal juicer, an auger juicer creates much heartier and more nutritious juicer recipes.
An auger juicer is the best juicer for “green” foods, such as wheatgrass and leafy greens, whose juice is hard to extract. Wheatgrass is a popular juicing food known for its high chlorophyll content. Leafy greens include lettuce, broccoli and spinach. Foods that cannot be juiced are soft produce, such as bananas and avocados, which will cause it to clog and leave an annoying mess to clean, since they contain relatively little juice. However, these types of produce are generally not used in juicer recipes.
If you choose to purchase an auger juicer, then expect to spend some money. Then can range anywhere from $200 and up. However, it is easy to justify the price with the many uses and the many juicer recipes you can create, though the biggest advantage it has over a centrifugal juicer is the health benefits. It can press a lot of juice out of fruits and vegetables, while preserving more of the enzymes and nutrients. The auger juicer that I use is the Omega 8005. It is an excellent machine and I have never been unhappy with it since the day I got it.
If you want something primarily for juicing vegetables, wheatgrass, or just about anything in the kitchen, and if you don’t mind spending more for a juicer that will really get the most out of your juicer recipes, you should definitely invest in an auger juicer.
