So, you heard about the amazing health benefits that you can get from juicing up your vegetables and your fruits, but you are not sure which one should you get. The juicing market has tons of products on offer and almost all of them are the same in the sense that they do get the job done. However, all of them have a different style and method of doing the same job, and therefore they will produce significantly different results. To understand what is the difference between the Centrifugal juicers and the cold press juicers we will first have to explain them individually.

Centrifugal-JuicersCentrifugal Juicers

These are the juicers you will most commonly see in restaurants and in most homes, as they are fast when it comes to their performance and produce a juice with the least amount of pulp. Since some people don’t enjoy pulp in their juice this is also a highly sought out machine when it comes to the juicing world. For this reason, you will usually see the centrifugal juicers more present than the cold press ones in the restaurants and cafes.

To delve inside the juicer for more detail we will notice that it also has a different build inside of it compared to the cold press. The centrifugal juicer works by extracting juice by grinding and pulverizing the vegetables and fruits to small bits that can easily pass through its sharp blade and the filter. Due to this filter that is located between the blade and the outer pipe, where the juice is extracted from the machine, the pulp remains inside the juicer instead of going to the glass.

In short, the pros and cons of the centrifugal juicers are:


– Fast preparation of juices

– Cheaper

– Can fit and consume large chunks

– Does not mix pulp with the juice (for some this is a positive)


– Not good for juicing leafy vegetables

– Produces less juice

– Higher foaming

– Does not mix pulp with the juice (for some this is a negative)

Cold-Press-JuicersCold Press Juicers

Cold press juicers are much slower than the one mentioned above, and it can’t crush hard and big chunks like the former mentioned one can. However, due to these reasons, the cold press juicers can extract more juice as they literally squash the juice and pulp out of the product that is placed inside and it works wonders with extracting leafy vegetable juice. There are also many benefits to this type of juicing and some negatives, depending on what you are looking for. So, let’s list them:


– Can juice leaf type products

– Higher volume of juice production

– Minimal foaming

– Fairly quiet

– Higher pulp presence in the juice (for some this is a positive)


– Slow time of juice production

– Can’t take large chunks

– Much higher pulp presence in the juice (for some this is a negative)

As you can clearly see, even though they are both juicers they operate in a different way. Depending on which one your lifestyle needs we hope that this article has explained how they work and helped you make a conscious purchase.
