What’s better, Centrifugal or Masticating juicers?
A centrifugal juicer whips the juice of the vegetables by spinning a blade and basket.
The blade at the bottom of the basket cuts the veggies while the spinning action forces the juice out the sides of the basket mesh.
A masticating juicer uses more of a chewing action as it grinds the juice out of the veggies.
Some say one produces more juice than the other, but each juicer model will be different than a model from another company.
One good way to tell is how dry the pulp is after juicing. If the left over pulp is still wet, there’s more juice that could have come out.

It’s a centrifugal juicer which means that the spinning baldes and basket whip out the juice with centrifical force.
