Cold press is a juice extraction method that uses a hydraulic press to extract juice from fruit and vegetables, as opposed to other methods such as centrifugal or single auger.
Cold press juicer extracts juice of fruits & vegetables by first pressing and crushing them at a low speed of less than 100 rpm (revolutions per minute).
Unlike conventional juicers which use high speed to generate centrifugal force for juice extraction, cold pressed juicer extracts juice at low speed by pressing and crushing fruits and vegetables.
Conventional juicers generate a lot of heat which results in the loss of fibers and oxidation of nutrients. The slow speed technique in cold pressed juicers does not produce as much heat as conventional juicers thus ensuring greater retention of fibers and nutrients.
Use fresh fruits and vegetables; they contain more juice. Particularly suitable for processing in the juicer are pineapples, oranges, beetroots, apples, cucumbers, carrots, melons, pomegranate, tangerine and grapes. It can also process nuts for the yummiest almond or cashew nut milk shakes, which is not possible with conventional juicers.
You do not have to remove thin peels or skins. Only remove thick peels, e.g. pineapples, water-melons, tangerine and sugar beet.
Fruits that contain starch, such as bananas, papayas, figs and mangoes are not suitable for processing in the KENT Cold Pressed Juicer. Use a food processor, blender or bar blender to process them.
