Many of the popular juicers on the market struggle with extracting juice from wheatgrass. A Centrifugal juicer uses a sharp blade rotating at high RPMs to extract juice but when it comes to wheatgrass this results mostly in chopping the wheatgrass into smaller pieces and does not yield very much juice if any at all. A better option would be to use a masticating juicer that crushes and squeezes fruits and vegetables to extract juice rather than chopping up your produce with a sharp, fast spinning blade.
Wheatgrass Juicers are made exclusively for extracting the juice from wheatgrass and other leafy greens, as well as some soft fruits like grapes. Wheatgrass juicers are not made for extracting juice from vegetables and most fruits.
You will find many types of wheatgrass juicers in the market today. There are manual juicers, electric juicers, multi-purpose electric juicing machines and masticating juicers.
The Omega 8005 is a masticating-style juicer with many uses. You will also find single auger wheatgrass juicers as well as the more expensive twin gear juicers. The Omega 8006 is a versatile single auger wheatgrass juicer while the Green Star Elite is an excellent twin gear juicer.
One of the best models we found is made specifically for wheatgrass and that is the Samson 6 in 1 Electric Wheatgrass Juicer. This particular unit is able to effectively extract juice from wheatgrass, leafy greens and other vegetables that centrifugal juicers tend to have trouble with. It uses a low-speed auger to extract the juice rather than a high-speed blade. A rapidly rotating blade introduces heat and oxygen into the juice and this can break down the enzymes in the juice thus degrading its nutritional value. The Samson 6 in 1 Electric Wheatgrass Juicer had some very good user reviews online. Most people agreed that this particular unit did a great job of getting every drop of juice out of the fruits and vegetables they put into it and that it was able to extract more juice than several other models on the market.
When choosing a wheatgrass juicer, you must also pay attention to the amount of juice you can extract with the juicer. It is also important to determine how easy it is to assemble and disassemble the machine, as well as the cleaning requirements of the juicer. Make sure the parts are dishwasher safe. Manual juicers have less cleaning requirements while twin gear juicers have more parts to clean.
