Juicers by Type

There are four main types of juicers based on juicing process. Browse juicers by type and find one that best suits your lifestyle, budget and level of dedication to juicing.

Masticating Juicers (also known as Gear or Auger-Style Juice Machines)


Masticating style units extract juice from vegetables and fruits through a slow, grinding process (hence the name): usually an auger (or two in twin gear juicers) rotates in a housing, grinding and chewing the produce into small pieces while forwarding the pulp towards a screen.

These type of juicers are considered to be much more efficient in obtaining vitamins and other nutrients from the produce.


With a good-quality masticating juicer you can juice a wide range of veggies including green leaves, wheatgrass and herbs. Based on the number of augers, there are single-gear and twin gear juicers.
