For Cafes & Juice Bars
A wide range of commercial citrus juicers are available on the market designed for making larger quantities of fresh orange and other citrus juices in cafes and juice shops.
To buy a commercial citrus jucier that best suits your needs you need to consider several factors, then you can compare the many brands and models available on the market.
Factors to Consider When Buying a Commercial Citrus Juicer
Juice Volume, Quality of Built – A commercial-grade citrus juice extractor should be sturdy and powerful enough to be able to make large volume of juice on a daliy basis.
Operating the juicer has to be simple, but the assembly and disassembly of a professional, high-volume citrus juice maker is slightly
Think through how much juice the juicer needs to make every day.
Type of the Juicer – there are cool-looking, hand-operated juice presses like the Orange X, as well as electric citrus juciers.
Placement – How much space you have for the appliance? Do you want a countertop unit or a bulkier, freestanding machine?
Price – citrus juciers designed for commercial use are more expensive than household units. This is due to the sturdier built and the higher quality of materials used to ensure dependable operation for extended use.
Warranty – always check the warranty period before buying – if all other features are equal a longer guarrantee period can be the the most important decision factor.
