NICE AND SLOW
The cold-pressed juice craze can now be enjoyed at home with the next generation of juicers. Instead of pulverizing produce through a fast moving blade, slow (a.k.a. masticating) juicers crush, squeeze and strain. This process yields up to 10 percent more juice, and because there is no heat build-up, it won’t destroy any of the nutrients or enzymes. Yes, these juicers are slower than the traditional centrifugal juicer, but they’re also a lot quieter. Aicok (from $149.99, amazon.ca) makes a few popular models, and Breville just introduced The Big Squeeze Slow Juicer ($599.99, thebay.com).
