View Full Version : Which blender/juicer is most functional and easy?
05-09-2012, 01:04 PM
I've been looking at blenders and so far Blendtec wins because of the large square bottom
that doesn't need a tamper. But I am pretty ignorant where juicing is concerned and
want to begin. So what is the concensus? Vita-Mix, Healthmaster, Blendtec?

Vita-Mix, Healthmaster, Blendtec?
All the above are blenders, not juicers. You can always blend, then strain if you choose.

There is a huge difference between a blender and a juicer.
If you are new at this I suggets you look at centrifugal juicers. They are the most popular juicers today and generally these juicers are also more affordable.
Centrifugal juicers are good at juicing most fruit and vegetable and can do it easily and speedily.
If you plan to juice mainly citrus fruits like lemons and oranges then a citrus juicer will probably be the best choice for you.

Look on Amazon for the reviews. I love my Vitamix. People that have blendtec love it. I am sure with either choice you will be happy.

Juicing or blending fruits and veggies for health is an awesome choice! They also taste great! :) If you are looking into juicing more so than the blending which as someone mentioned above is a different thing altogether. You should consider what your purposes are for juicing and what types of produce items you are looking at juicing. As another person mentioned above a centrifugal juicer is the cheapest way to go and also the quickest way to juice. However if you are looking to juice wheatgrass or would like to get the most out of the leafy greens you juice. You may want to consider looking into a "Masticating" juicer. Masticating juicers in general will put out more juice than a centrifugal when it comes to all items you put through them. They are especially more efficient for leafy greens. There are also a lot of people as well as some studies that have been done which say and show that masticating juicers will deliver more of the nutrients and enzymes from your produce into your juice. This gives you more of what you want to go into your body! I am not saying centrifugal juicers are bad. I am just saying it depends on what it is you are wanting to get out of juicing.
You can google centrifugal juicers vs masticating juicers if you are interested in this. Happy juicing or blending! Whichever way you go. :)
