A well-engineered commercial quality juice machine would also suit to a large family where lots of juice has to be prepared on a daily basis.
What to Look for When Buying a Commercial Juicer?
Here are the main features and benefits of commercial juice extractors you need to consider before purchasing one.
A commercial juicer usually needs to be capable of making large quantities of juice on a continuous basis. There are some cafes, shops restaurants that don’t sell large volume of juice for them a lower-capacity machine will do just as well.
The type of juice you serve in your juice bar, cafe or health club determines whether you need a heavy duty citrus juicer or a juice extractor that processes both vegetables and fruits (Nutrifaster 450). Some of the citrus juicers can handle whole, unpeeled oranges, lemons and grapefruits, though in this case using organic produce is highly recommended. If you offer only citrus juices in your menu then a dedicated citrus juicer is your best choice. If there’s lower demand for citrus juice in your shop then a manual juicer is suffice. Such is the OrangeX Commercial Juicer which is a stainless steel hand-operated citrus press.
How easy it is to clean the juicing machine? If cleaning is complicated your staff might have to spend extra time with it, which they won’t appreciate.
A commercial juicer is sturdier and has a more powerful motor and body construction than a household unit which is reflected in the higher price of these applainces. This is understandable and you’ll get a return on your investment soon.
Where are you going to place the juice extractor? Do you have space in your bar for a floor standing model or a countertop unit would be more suitable?
How fast can the juicer make a certain amount of juice? How often do you need to empty the pulp collector?
The juice quality is also important – most people don’t like their juice too pulpy, so it’s best to get a juicer that produces clean, rather pulp-free juice.
Warranty period – the longer the better (5-15 years is the minimum).
Availability of spare parts, repair service – if your juicing machine breaks down, can it be repaired onsite or does it have to be taken to a repair shop?
The look and design – Some models look cool and there are both worktop units and larger, freestanding floor models.
- Noise level – a too loud juice extractor would bother customers and the staff alike.
- Price – how much a commercial juicer costs depends on the capacity of the unit. The price ranges from $500 to a couple of thousand dollars. If you’re on budget look for sales on commercial juicing machines or buy a high-quality but lower-priced household model.
