This review article will list Top 5 Best Cold Press Juicer In India. These are also called Slow Juicers or Masticating Juicers. The list has been carefully curated considering all aspects of a cold press juicer including price, feature & performance.
Overall, the Hurom HE RBC09 has topped my list of Best Slow Juicers in India. The product extracts juice from vegetables, nuts and/or fruits very efficiently. The product does have some minor drawbacks. The same are discussed in the detailed review below.
What is a cold press Juicer?
Cold press juicer extract juice from vegetables and fruits by crushing and pressing them at a slow speed. This process generates a negligible amount of heat and thus keeping all the nutrients of the food product intact.
A regular juicer, on the other hand, processes the food using a high-speed blade. This high-speed motion of the blade generates heat while extracting juice. Heat causes the food to get oxidized fast. Fast blade also destroys some helpful enzymes in the fruits and vegetables. Thus the nutritional value of juice extracted this way is extremely low.
Buying Guide: Factors to select the Best Cold Press Juicer
You should keep an eye on the factors mentioned below while selecting the right slow juicer for your home.
- Build Quality – Pressing hard vegetable and fruits is a tough job. Ensure you buy a good quality product which can handle the vegetable you like in your juice
- RPM – The product is built on the idea that slowly squeezing out juice from your fruits and vegetable does not oxidize the food as there is no heat generated in the process. This means you should look for a product with a lower speed (RPM). The slower a product extracts juice, the better it is. Any product with speeds below 70/60 RPM is considered good
- Easy of operation/cleaning – If the product is difficult to clean or use, you will eventually stop using it. So do keep in mind the ease of using the product. To help you select the product better, I have included videos for each of them.
- Intake Chute – The bigger the chute, the better it is. You will not have to slice your food in really small pieces if the intake chute is big enough. Although keep in mind the quality of your product as well. If you buy a budget juicer, make smaller pieces to help your product perform better and last longer
- Warranty – I know, a lot of people never avail the warranty even if the product breaks down. It is too much of a hassle. However, the amount of warranty a company provides on a product shows the amount of confidence they have on it. If they give you give a 1-year warranty, this means they don’t expect most products of that model to fail before one year. So always keep an eye on this. (True for any product)
