Blenders vs Juicers – which would you choose?

Health in a glass

The super fresh juice of a fruit or veggie combo is rich in minerals, vitamins, enzymes and antioxidants, which are destroyed when we cook or process them.

It is not easy to consume your daily quota of nutrients by just eating them! You need to prepare your raw fruit and (mostly) veg in a way that appeals to you first. However, it is up to you to choose which way you do that.

When it comes to blenders vs juicers, which would you prefer? Both methods have their advantages and disadvantages. Find out here which works best for you.

See my article on the pros and cons of blending and juicing.

I have done a lot of research to find the best blenders and juicers on the market and I think you will enjoy whichever one you choose below.

Cuisinart 3.5 Peak Hurricane Pro Blender, Gunmetal

Top rated seller at Amazon
99.7% positive feedback

Application

Super smooth: It does a fantastic job at crushing fruit and vegetables. It reduces fully frozen fruit into the silkiest of smoothies in test after test, making it a firm favorite. There were no repeated sounds of fruit getting caught in an awkward spot like with some other blenders.
Piping hot soup: The soup stays piping hot and does not cool down as with other blenders.
Easy to use: A dedicated soup button on the controls meant there was no guesswork on how to achieve those results either.

Design

Powerful & compact: The Cuisinart Hurricane packs a lot of power into its relatively compact size, and clears plenty of counter space for other culinary activities. It also fits nicely under standard height kitchen cabinets, a definite plus over competing blenders.
Quiet & stable: The Cuisinart Hurricane is relatively quiet and doesn’t move around, even on wet counters.

Prep & Cleanup

Omega J8006 Nutrition Center Juicer – Black and Chrome

Application

High quality juicing: supreme in taste, visual appearance & nutrition.
Versatile & multifunctional: This is more than just a juicer. You can make baby food from cooked foods, homemade pasta from scratch, butters from nuts and powdered spices. It’s the complete juicer cum food processing machine.

Highly Efficient & Economical: The two-stage, crushing and pressing mechanism translates to greater juicing efficiency. This means that more juice can be extracted by this blender from the same volume of produce compared to a centrifugal juicer. In the long run, you will save more money on produce.
An auto-pulp ejection function is makes life easy as it allows uninterrupted juicing.

Longer shelf life: Less foam means the juice keeps longer – 72 hours – so you can make up quantities to last for 3 days.

Design

Excellent quality masticating juicer: The Omega J8006 Nutrition Center Juicer is a hardworking, versatile and highly-efficient juicer that can extract nearly all of the juice content of both soft and hard fruits as well as tough leafy greens.

Durable and tough: Engineered to last long, this juicer is guaranteed to give you years of happy and healthy juicing.
Noise free!

Prep & Cleanup

More complex to use: Because it is not only a juicer, but has the added functionality of a processor, it is a little more complicated to use.

A little less easy to clean: The amount of food processing functions are impressive, but it also means there are several parts that may prove more challenging to assemble, disassemble and clean. Beginners, and impatient cooks may find this juicer too much of a hassle to operate, clean and assemble.

If all you want is a juicer only, you should look at the more simple to use centrifugal juicers (see the Breville model below).

However, if you are looking for the quality, versatility, multi functionality and efficiency of a juicer cum food processor, this is a good investment for you!

Warranty & Support

  • Solid warranty: with a 15 year warranty, you’ll have an abundance of juice for many years to come!
  • Excellent service track record
  • Items are shipped quickly
  • Money Back Guarantee
  • 30-Day return
