Manual Juicer

Fresh fruit and vegetable juices are recommended by doctors and other health professionals as a great tasting way to get much needed nutrients into our bodies. If you live alone and don’t cook very much you might want to consider buying a manual juicer that is small and convenient that will allow you to make a glass of juice when needed without all the mess and cleanup.

In our modern hi tech world it can be hard to believe that some people still use a manual juice extractor but the fact is they are convenient, cheap and still the most efficient way to make a glass or two of orange or lemon juice quickly.

Many people still use a manual juicer because they don’t use any electricity, are small and easy to clean, inexpensive and can even give you a way to release a little stress while grinding away making juice.

The Disadvantage Of A Manual Juicer

The main disadvantage to using a manual juicer is that it is manual. You have to put in the effort to get the juice extracted and you need to be careful to keep the seeds out of the juice. It can also be messier to use than an electric model when all is said and done. But if you like doing things the old fashioned way and like the hands-on approach when you cook you will overlook these shortcomings.

Since a manual juicer has no moving parts they are fairly cheap and any brand will do a good job for you but you might want to consider what the juicer is made of as there are many models made out of plastic, metal and ceramic. Also look for extras like built-in sieves to strain out the pulp and seeds from the juice as many very cheap manual juicer models may not have them.
