Our Top Selection of Blenders and Juicers
There’s a definite juice craze taking over the world right now, and with good reason too. Juices and homemade smoothies can be an excellent supplement to your daily diet, reason being that they allow you to take in an amount of nutrients from veggies and fruits that you normally probably wouldn’t manage in a day. There is however a slight difference between blenders and juicers and the resulting drink they make. Blenders, as the name suggests, blend fruits, veggies and other healthy bits to create a smoothie, while retaining the fibre. Juicers on the other hand, extract the natural liquid content within the food, discarding the fibre. Whichever side you’re on, we have you covered – here are our favourite blenders and juicers.

The Angel Juicer is the first masticating and cold press juicer on the market and has been dubbed the Rolls Royce of cold press machines. It was first released in 1982 and has since developed it’s 3-stage double auger system to perfection. It is suitable to extract juice from almost any ingredient by means of cold pressing and it has by far the highest yield of any machine on the market. More than 92% of the juice is extracted from fruit, vegetables, leafy greens and grasses whilst retaining all the goodness inside juice. It is used by juice lovers around the world and because of its durability it is even used by retailers to optimise their juice extraction and provide the healthiest juice possible. Another advantage this machine has is the ultimate ease of cleaning the machine: just one clip holds the 3 juicing parts together and it can be washed in your dishwasher. Just 5 minutes to clean and assemble the machine after use.
We love that the Angel Juicer operates at a slow RPM as this keeps almost 100% of the enzymes and nutrients alive during the juicing process.
