Vertical and horizontal screw juicers
Currently, there are more and more fans of a healthy lifestyle. A lot of people prefer freshly squeezed juice or smoothies for breakfast, considering it to be a storehouse of useful vitamins and microelements. Experts believe that the most useful drink is obtained using cold-pressed devices, which include screw juicers.
Features of work
The principle of operation of screw juicers is similar to the principle of operation of the meat grinder. Through the neck products go inside. There, with the help of a rotating shaft - auger, the products are crushed and juice is squeezed out of them. Under pressure of the screw several times the crushed products pass through the filter. Then the resulting drink enters the co-receiver, and the remains are discharged through a special opening.
Manual - essentially like a meat grinder. Sometimes the meat grinder and juicer can be combined in one device by adding special attachments. Ideal when there is no connection to the mains.
Electric The devices are equipped with a motor with which the chopper for food rotates. The cake in this case is displayed in one hole, and the juice - in another. Choosing this device will save you time and energy.
Horizontal looks like an ordinary meat grinder. Slightly different from her body and pitch of the rotating shaft. Products are first crushed, then pushed forward. Passing through the filter, the juice flows into one hole, the cake is displayed in another. The disadvantage of these types of juicers is the need to constantly push fruits and vegetables with a pusher. From delicate products with the help of such a device, it is more likely to get a gruel than a juice.

Advantages and disadvantages
The main advantages of screw juicers are:
- Auger juicers can be used to make juice from products with small stones. Not all devices cope with this task.
- When using high-speed juicers, bubbles are formed with air, which leads to oxidation of the beverage. In screw devices, this is excluded, as is the heating of the product.
- High practicality of the device. The output of the drink is up to 95% in this production.
- Less consumption of electricity, as this is a low-revving machine.
- Silent operation of the device. Especially true if you need to produce a large amount of juice at a time. If squeezed will be too noisy, it will lead to quick fatigue.
- High wear resistance of the device is provided by the slow operation of the screw shaft, which does not overload the engine.
- With the help of additional nozzles you can make not only juice, but also sauce, cocktail, mashed potatoes.
- Simple instrument cleaning. Most models are cleaned by filling the juicer with tap water and turning on the device.
Everything has its pros and cons. The main disadvantage of devices of this type is the high price. The second disadvantage is that many models have a narrow neck. This circumstance requires pre-grinding of fruits and vegetables.
Aluminum is considered not the best material for juicers, because it is poisonous.
Perhaps the best material for a juicer is cast iron and steel. They are environmentally friendly materials and are highly wear resistant.
Currently, for the production of juicers often use high-strength plastic, which is also a good option.
