People often get confused between juicer and blender. To give the clear idea about a juicer and a blender we are here. This writing will surely help you to sort out which one is juicer and which one is a blender. Read it out! What is a Blender? I think this does not need many presentations. We all know what a blender is: an appliance with a mouth through which fruits and vegetables are introduced. These go to a metal basket equipped with blades and a filter that, when spinning at high speed, grind fruits and vegetables. This high velocity causes the pulp to strike the walls of the filter and the juice is released through its wall, separating the pulp. What is a Juice Extractor? Go ahead that you can also find the names "slow juicer" and "cold press juicer" to refer to the same. A juice extractor is a small appliance that makes juices through a pressing process that separates the juice from the pulp into fruits and vegetables. Its shape is similar to that of the blender, but its operation is very different. Basically, extract the juice "chewing" the fruits and vegetables thanks to a screw in a spiral. The pulp is crushed by pressure against a filter to extract all the juice. Advantages of Juice Extractor vs. Blender The juice retains all its properties. Vitamins, minerals, and enzymes are not affected because the extraction speed is much slower (which does not raise the temperature, as in the case of the blender). Oxidation of the juice is also much less as it has much less contact with the air in the extraction process. Disadvantages of Juice Extractor vs. Blender Higher price. You need more time to get the juice since it works at many fewer revolutions than the blender. Nozzle to introduce the food closer, so you have to spend more time peeling and chopping the ingredients. From what I've read, it's a bit more entertaining to clean depending on the model. CONCLUSIONS The chosen one is the juice extractor since the fact that the blender operates at high revolutions generates heat (increases the temperature of the juice) and causes it to come in contact with more air, which oxidizes it. The result is a loss of nutrients, antioxidants and juice enzymes that do not happen if we use a cold press juicer.
