It is difficult to imagine anyone saying no to a glassful of healthy fruit or vegetable juice prepared at home.

A vegetable juicer has become such an important part of the kitchen since it fully enables anyone to enjoy glass after glass of fresh fruit or vegetable juice at any time of the day.

Vegetable Juicers are already considered to be effective tools in helping people slim down since it produces freshly squeezed drinks that are rich in vitamins and nutrients which is an essential part of a dieter’s regimen.

People who have a vegetable juicer at home are able to enjoy a glass of freshly squeezed juice any time they want. And a glassful of freshly squeezed fruit or vegetable juice can provide more energy and more real nutrition than a cup of coffee.

Depending on the need or level of use, there are several other kinds of juicers that are available on the market today as well. The commercial juicer, as the name implies, is often for commercial use or for those who run juice bars or restaurants. The motors are designed and fit in such a way as to extract gallons of fruit and vegetable juice every single day. Often times these juicers have large mouths in order to accommodate large pieces of fruits and vegetables. There is the citrus juicer that is used to primarily extract vitamins and minerals from all kinds of citrus fruits. There is also the masticating juicer that is made to specifically accommodate harder fruits and vegetables.

When buying a vegetable juicer, it is important to take into consideration just how easily you can clean it after using it.

Vegetable Juicers often have pulp in the blades and the crevices so it is important that you opt for a model or brand that enables easy cleaning and maintenance. It is important that the vegetable juicer you will buy will allow you to easily remove the blades so you can clean it with a brush to make sure that no pulp remains that may damage the blades over time.

The storage capability is another factor to take into consideration when shopping for a vegetable or fruit juicer so it is important that you look for one that you can easily store or keep inside one of your kitchen cabinets in order to avoid having a cluttered kitchen counter.

It is also important that you read the user’s manual that come with the juicer and that you understand perfectly how the juicer works before actually using it; this is to make sure that you are using the machine properly and that you will not do anything that may hurt yourself or damage your new vegetable juicer.

Create your own juice at home using a vegetable juicer and this will surely be FUN for you and your family.

    Vegetable juice is very rampant today especially that it is proven to be effectual in cleansing the body. Yet, our juicer must be checked first before proper using. Thanks for this post. Really helpful.

    There is nothing quite like fresh fruit drinks to make you feel great. Whenever I go south of the border I always find those street vendor drinks amazing. Hard to duplicate up north though.

    Doesn’t it just make you want to laugh when you see those silly TV commercials that want you to believe vegetable juice is the worst thing ever? Freshly made juice is awesome! My favorite? Carrot, beet, and lemon. MMMMmmmm….

    We have often thought about buying a juicer and trying to live a healthier lifestyle. There are so many options when it comes to choosing one we were having a hard time deciding. I am glad that I came across your article. It provided me with some of the information I was missing and now I feel a little more confident in purchasing one. Thanks!
