The Best Juicers Reviewed Pick For The Best Vegetable Juicer For 2016 – Masticating Juicer
The Omega J8006 is a well known and respected juicer and an excellent pick for vegetables. This appliance embodies the phrase “slow juicer” – it operates at 80 RPM using dual stage juicing action to yield the most juice while avoiding foam, heat buildup or oxidation. This means your juice will retain all of the nutrients and food enzyme you will need to reap the benefits of raw vegetables.
This cold press juicer can juice fruit, vegetables, and can grind coffee, make baby food, extrude pasta, make peanut butter, and much more. It is surprisingly efficient – the pulp ejected is extremely dry. It has can reverse its direction in order to prevent clogging, and comes with a reliable fifteen year warranty. The J8006 can extract juice from anything, and grind anything, from spices to nuts.
Cleaning this slow juicer is fast and easy if you clean the equipment right after you have used it. The dual stage juicing happens as follows: an auger squeezes vegetables against a mesh screen. During the first crush, juice is pushed through the first screen at the bottom. After, the pulp is pushed through a tighter space and it is squeezed against a second screen. This makes the J8006 more efficient than most single stage juicers.
The J8006 was built for durability. The strong Ultem strainer and auger will easily weather every day, regular use. That, coupled with the fifteen year warranty makes this masticating juicer a reliable pick. There are a few downsides: the feed chute is very small (one and a half inch diameter), so there will be a significant amount of prep work involved when you are using this juicer.
It is a sizable juicer that will also take up a lot of kitchen space, so make sure you are entirely happy with this before you buy it. Finally, you will have to exert yourself a little to extract fresh juice, and it will take some time to do so. If these things don’t bother you, the Omega J8006 is the perfect pick for juicing vegetables. It meets the criteria listed for juicing vegetables and more.

The Best Juicers Reviewed Pick For The Best Vegetable Juicer For 2016 – Centrifugal Juicer
The Goumia comes equipped with a large feeding chute that can fit most fruits and vegetables – even a whole apple, significantly cutting down on prep time. It is powered by an 850 W motor that is strong enough to extract almost all juice from your produce, leaving dry pulp – a redeeming quality for a vegetable juicer.
This juicer is easy to use, assembling and disassembling quickly and easily. There are two speeds – one for hard produce, one for soft – just switch the button and you are good to go. It is easy to clean as well – simply disable the locking handle, take the parts off, and watch them. (The juicer also comes with a brush to clean areas that are hard to reach). Although it is dishwasher safe, cleaning the juicer without using the dishwasher should only take about a minute.
The juice container is large – one liter, and it attaches directly over the mouth of the juicer. No need to worry about juice overflowing or making a mess while you are juicing. The pulp container is also large – eight and a half cups, twice the size of most juicers on the market. The pulp container is removable, making cleanup a breeze.
Although the motor is powerful and it is a centrifugal juicer, the Goumia is quiet. Attached to the base are suction cups to keep the juicer in place while it is being used. Every piece of the juicer is BPA free so you can juice safely.
The juicer is handsome – the body is comprised of stainless steel, lending to a sleek, contemporary look. A problem with the Goumia is that juice tends to spray out of the pulp container. Otherwise, it is an ideal juicer for vegetables. It can juice many types of vegetables, and extracts a maximum yield of juice, even for a centrifugal juicer.

Final Thoughts on the Best Vegetable Juicer for 2016
These two juicers are great for vegetables, but they are very different. The Omega is extremely versatile, and as a masticating juicer, will do a better job juicing leafy greens like spinach and kale. It can also juice wheatgrass too. The Goumia is better suited for peppers, carrots, beets and other vegetables of this type. If you are looking for a multi purpose machine that can do a great job on softer vegetables, look to the Omega. If you are looking for something more affordable for vegetables like carrots, beets or peppers, it would be a good idea to consider the Goumia. Either one is an excellent choice in general.
