While blenders are relatively commonplace, juicers are relatively new kitchen appliances. Both provide healthy drinks and as a result are sometimes confused, but they are not the same. To understand the differences, read on…
Do you like to blend? My Blendtec blender is in constant use, whether it’s whipping cream, mixing pancakes, or making sauces and dressings. I use it every day and am constantly grateful for the fact that I have two blender cups, other wise I would be lost! My favorite use of the blender is as a smoothie maker; I can throw in any fruit we have, add some fruit juice or yogurt, and know the result will be something that’s good for me as well as tasting delicious.
But blenders aren’t the last word when it comes to healthy drinks from fruit and vegetables. That position belongs to a completely different kitchen appliance, the juicer. Despite the fact that they are very different, many people seem to get these helpful kitchen gadgets confused, so when should you use one and when the other?
The big difference is in the mechanism. A blender depends on spinning blades to reduce the fruit to pulp and release some juice in the process. The basic laws of physics apply, what goes in, comes out, just in a different form. Nothing is separated, the fruit is just turned into pulp.
If you put fruit into your blender with it’s skin on and seeds still inside, the result will still contain that skin and seeds, just chopped up very small. Many people mention that this is one thing they don’t like about smoothies, that the fiber of the fruit is retained in the drink, something which is especially obvious with berries. These are very often used as the basis for smoothies, yet many children don’t like the texture of the result.
There are many types of juicers like the Omega Juicers and many different mechanisms, but all work to separate the juice from the fiber leaving no pith, peel seeds or skin. The result is a smooth juice and contains no lumps.
Nutritionists believe that as the juice is separated from the fiber, the nutrients in the juice are easier to absorb and more readily available to the body, so while smoothies may set you on a healthy path, use a juicer, and you’ve arrived.
Sadly for the household budget, the ideal kitchen would contain both of these devices. The juicer to provide pure juice with no contaminants, preservatives, colorings or extra sweeteners, the blender to create a delicious mixture of fruit juices or juice and other items, such as ice cream, yogurt or milk.
While a juicer can’t get juice out of a banana (they have none) it can extract juice from some apparently unlikely sources including carrots, spinach, cucumber, apples and celery as well as wheat grass, but what happens to the pulp that’s left over? There’s no need for that to go to waste.
Plan a glass of carrot (or carrot and zucchini) juice for breakfast, and as well as the juice you’ll have pulp which can added to bread mix to make muffins, or vegetable soup later in the day. Almost every type of fruit pulp makes a really tasty addition to cookies or muffins.
Juicers and blenders each have a job to do. To maximize your options for healthy living, try to find a place for both items in your kitchen.

Dictionaries define masticating as the process of breaking down food with the use of a person or an animal’s teeth; and thus the principle on which the masticating juicer is created.
Inside the juicer are two hard and sharp surfaces which break down fruits and vegetables that are placed inside it in order to extract the juice from the fruit or the vegetable.
So for people who are looking for a juicer that can fully and efficiently extract all the juices from the fruit or vegetable, thus giving you the highest possible nutritional value in every glass, masticating juicers are the best option. So how exactly does this specific juicer work?
A masticating juicer works by grinding and “chewing” the fibers from fruits and vegetables that are placed in between its two hard edges or surfaces; the juicer works at slower speeds which help a lot in getting the most nutrition out of the fruit or the vegetable.
Also, a lot of people who use such a juicer also say that the juice that they are able to extract tastes so much better. This is because the juices are squeezed out of the fruit or the vegetable instead of being spun out as what happens with conventional juicers.
Many nutritionists actually do recommend that people use masticating juicers in order to get the most out of every glass of fruit or vegetable juice that they will drink
