So you’re interested in buying a Stainless Steel Juicer?
A fine choice!
Very Hygienic, no plastic involved, sleek looking and usually powerful juicers too! Everything you could want whether or not you’re an experienced juice nut or trying it out for the first time.
In this article I’ve got a couple of the different things you need to know about buying a metal juicer then a review of my favorites.
So let’s get stuck in!
Centrifugal Vs Masticating
These are the two main types of juicer (though you also get citrus presses which I’ll mention) so it’s important to know which one you need.
Centrifugal juicers work similar to a blender, they have a high-speed spinning blade at the bottom which shreds up what you put in it allowing the juice to pour out one way and the pulp gets thrown out another way separating the two and leaving you with delicious juice.
Centrifugal juicers are much faster than their masticating counterparts but as a result tend to be more noisy. They can handle pretty much all fruit and veg but if you have a lot of leafy greens you might need to put them through twice.
Masticating juicers work by using a bigger rotating gear that squeezes the juice out by force, they’re often called slow juicers because the gear spins at such a slow speed compared to the a centrifugal juicer.
Masticating juicers are great because they have a really high yield of juice from the fruit you put in, and the slow speed means the juice doesn’t heat up so no enzymes or nutrients get lost.
A citrus press is something you would use specifically to make orange juice, or any other citrus fruit juice, I’ve got my favorite stainless steel model below so if that’s what you’re after, don’t worry, I’ve got you covered.
What Parts Should Be Stainless Steel
The two most important parts that you want to be stainless steel are either the blades if it’s a centrifugal juicer or the rotating auger on a masticating juicer which is the spinning gear that juices the fruit and veg.
Bonus points if the machine is totally stainless steel but those tend to be harder to find, unless of course you’re reading this article in which case I’ve already found you some below!
But my rule is if it touches the food you want it to be stainless steel, unless it’s a clear plastic in which case there often isn’t a way around it, you just need to make sure it’s BPA free.
What Other Metals Are OK?
Titanium is another strong metal that can hold out well, so if your augur of cutting blades are made of it you’ll be fine.
If it’s the outside body and not the parts that have a great amount of contact with the food then a die-cast metal is perfectly fine.
4 Best Stainless Steel Juicers
Juice Fountain Elite
- Titanium Cutting Disk
- All Metal Body
- 3” feeding Chute
Stainless steel not good enough for you? How about titanium? The Juice Fountain Elite has a titanium cutting disk for even stronger cutting power, the body itself is die-cast metal rather than stainless steel but I still like the all-metal design, and the outside body doesn’t come into contact with the juice so it’s no big loss.
The whole thing is easy to use, the chute is nice and big and it can handle chunky fruits and vegetables which is excellent, plus all the parts can be put in the dishwasher on the top shelf so clean up is that little bit less hassle.
It’s also got two speeds which gives you that little bit more control, you can juice softer fruits on the lower setting (normally a good idea to do that first) then hit any harder vegetables you’re juicing with the higher speed.
Overall a very good choice of stainless steel juicer and I think my favorite on the list.
Meat Grinder And Juicer
- Aluminium Auger
- Also Grinds Meat
- Pulp Control
It’s surprisingly hard to find an all stainless steel juicer that’s under $1000, so I found this which is just as good, it’s got a stainless steel body and the auger in it is aluminium which is still plenty strong enough to make short work of anything you could want to juice.
I believe this is actually a meat grinder that also juices but to me it’s a juicer that can also grind meat, I don’t personally but if that’s your thing you can do it!
I just liked the powerful motor and that it’s metal in all the right places. You can also adjust the settings to control how wet the pulp is when it comes out, useful if you’re making orange juice and like to have a bit of pulp in otherwise set it to as dry as possible and go to town.
Overall, a great metal masticating juicer that won’t break the bank.
Pro Stainless Steel Juicer
Brand: Super Angel
- All Stainless Steel
- Twin Gear For Maximum Yield
- Includes Glass Pyrex Cup
So I mentioned the great juicers that are over $1000? Well, this is one of them… And boy does it do a good job!
Although it doesn’t come cheap you get a very powerful twin gear juicer that can turn anything into delicious juice (though I’d stick with fruits and vegetables). It’s got a cooling feature in the motor so that it doesn’t overheat, reverse functions so it doesn’t jam and it is one of the only fully stainless steel juicers, absolutely no plastic involved whatsoever.
Not for everyone but this is the real deal when it comes to stainless steel juicers so if you’re serious about juicing then this is the one for you.
Stainless Steel Citrus Press
Type: Citrus Press
- All Stainless Steel
- Push Arm Activated
- Dishwasher Safe Parts
This powerful citrus press makes short work of any orange, lemon, lime or any other citrus fruit you might want to put in there. A really great yield and you look inside the fruit after and know it’s done a good job.
Just to be clear if you’re wanting to juice vegetables or other fruits then you’ll need one of the other juicers on this list. This is purely for citrus fruit.
It works by sitting the fruit on the augur then when you press down the arm to clamp it in place it turns on and the auger starts to spin, so make sure your glass is already in place!
This is fully stainless steel except for the handle you press down on which is plastic, but again this comes into no contact with the juice itself and is just there to make it more comfortable to use.
Easily the best stainless steel citrus press available.
