Quest for the Best Juicer for Spinach and Kale


Juicers for Spinach and Kale

Are you looking for a juicer, electric or manual, that can extract juice from less juicy vegetables such as spinach, kale and parsley? Here, we review three juicers that are ideal for spinach, kale, parsley and other similar vegetables, and that have received rave reviews from Amazon customers, both in the US and UK. One of the juicers reviewed below is manual, while the other two use masticating or slow cold press technology. Although they generally carry a higher price tag than centrifugal juicers, masticating juicers are preferred by many health-conscious people as they do not cause unnecessary heat during the juicing process and do not therefore destroy the delicate nutrients and enzymes that are naturally present in fresh foods. In addition, masticating juicers, which crush and squeeze fruit and vegetables, are much more efficient at getting the juice out leafy greens – such as kale, spinach, and parsley – than centrifugal juicers which produce juice by grinding the food. In many cases, you can get about twice the amount of juice out of green leafy vegetables, such as spinach and kale, by switching to a high-quality masticating juicer (in case of hard vegetables, such as carrots, the difference in yield is usually less dramatic).

The High End Juice Extractor:

Kuvings Big Mouth Juicer

If you love fruit juices and green juices but are always short on time, you may want to consider getting Kuvings' masticating juicer. Thanks to its extra wide mouth, you can feed it with heaps of kale or spinach at once, and even whole fruits such as small apples. This means less preparation (i.e. pre-cutting and chopping up the ingredients), and more time for you to spend outside of the kitchen. Kuvings' whole food juice extractor is available in silver, white and red.

For Occasional Juicing:

Manual Wheatgrass Juicers

If you juice kale, spinach, parsley and other leafy greens only occasionally, you may want to get a manual wheatgrass juicer. They are significantly cheaper than masticating juicers, and they take up very little space. Miracle Exclusives' heavy-duty wheatgrass juicer is made from sturdy stainless steel and can be used to extract juice from not only wheatgrass but also spinach, kale, etc. Be aware, though, that manual wheatgrass juicers are not as efficient as masticating juicers, and it may be necessary to feed the pulp through the machine several times in order to get all the juice out of it.
