A Cold-Pressed Juice A Day Keeps the Doctor Away
Cold-Pressed Juicing is all over social media. Is it just a craze or is it legit? I say, cold-press juicing is 100% legit if you do it yourself OR if you have enough money to spend at a cold-pressed juice bar.
We own a Breville Cold Press Juicer and it has quickly become one of our most used kitchen appliances within the last few months.
If you’re looking into “juicing,” it is important to know the difference between cold-press juicers and centrifugal juicers. All juicers are not created equal!
Cold press juicers smash fruits and veggies using a slow mastication method without the use of heat, which preserves the vitamins and nutrients in the fresh produce.

Cold-Pressed Juicers vs Centrifugal Juicers
Centrifugal juicers add heat during the extraction process, which makes the juicing process faster, but minimizes the nutritional value of your fresh juice. Breville’s Cold Spin Technology has been shown to transfer less than 1.8°C while extracting juice. And the 850 watt motor processes even the toughest fruits and vegetables in just seconds.
Recommended Cold-Press Juicers
Our Breville Cold-Press Juicer is an amazing and affordable juicer. I love that it allows me to juice both soft and hard fruits and veggies because it is a quality (nearly commercial grade) juicer! The Breville cold-press juicer has a wide feeding tube allowing me to put whole fruits and veggies into the chamber to be juiced with or without the rind. This has really sped up my prep time so juicing has become so much easier on mornings when I am rushing to get out the door.
Another option is the Bella Juicer. This was our first juicer that we bought 3 years ago. It is significantly cheaper, but the reviews online are mixed. We did not encounter any issues with ours, but people online have stated theirs would get jammed easily. I like that it has two speeds for softer and harder produce and I find it easy to clean, just as long as you clean it within a few minutes of use so that the pulp does not dry out. If the pulp dries out it is a pain to clean.
I appreciate the quick clean-up time too! Dishwasher safe juicer parts is such a lifesaver! Plus, it has dishwasher-safe parts, so you’ll save even more time not having to clean up.
