If we ever have a craving for a glass of juice, many of us will head to the store to purchase a jug of pre-squeezed juice to satisfy ourselves. However, the experience might leave much to be desired if we prefer freshly squeezed juice. You will likely find yourself hard-pressed to encounter a person who prefers pre-packaged and mass-manufactured juice to juice made by hand.
That is because the dynamic flavors in a fresh cup of juice are incomparable, so it makes sense that you want to have a glass whenever you please. As such, you will require a quality juicer. You should know the different types of manual juicers and their uses so that you can choose the best one for you.
Why Choose Manual
You might be wondering why you should choose a manual juicer over an electric one. Modern society does us a great disservice when it seeks to break down everything until it is as simple as possible. When we over-simplify the creation process, we keep ourselves from working with our hands.
Creating something with our own two hands provides us with such deep levels of satisfaction. Moreover, reveling in those creations is the cherry on top that we find missing in our modern lives. Even though a freshly squeezed cup of juice will be satisfyingly delicious no matter where it comes from, it certainly tastes better when you make it yourself.
There’s something authentic about manual juicers. In comparison to their elders, electric juicers haven’t been around for much too long. In fact, if you were to take a stroll along a busy street decked out with food vendors galore, you probably wouldn’t find an electric juicer anywhere. Many vendors use and even prefer a manual juicer because they are the common go-to that generations before them utilized as well.
Moreover, electric juicers often come from large corporations that mass-manufacture their products. Conversely, artisans hand-make manual juicers and put great care into each and every one of their products. When you choose to purchase a manual juicer, you are supporting a small artisan and their families who are seeking the advancement of their dreams and goals.
It is likely you have never seen a steam juicer before as they look quite different from your typical manual juicer. Many categorize this juicer as manual because it does not utilize any electricity to power.
This juicer utilizes three large multi-level stove-top pots to extract the liquid from fruit. The extraction occurs through steam that rises from the boiling pot on the bottom. The middle pot is where the juice will collect, and the top pot is a perforated pan where the fruit sits, breaking down. The middle pot also has a spout where the juice can flow out of the steam juicer and into a temperature-controlled pot.
Steam Juicer Uses
Steam juicers work great for people who want to preserve their fruits and vegetables in a time-efficient manner. Moreover, it allows you to extract juice from larger quantities of produce rather than one at a time. However, the juice that you extract with a steam juicer is very clear and free of pulp and fibers, which greatly reduces its nutritional value.
