While the number one juice extractor selling on Amazon is the Breville (model number BJE200XL) Compact Juice Fountain 700-Watt Juice Extractor, with a list price of $74.96, my sister recently purchased Jack LaLanne’s Power Juicer Express for around $99.

My sister, who has virtually every cool kitchen appliance under the sun — with the exception of a SousVide Supreme — raved about her new juicer, and insisted I buy one.

I played it safe and purchased a Hamilton Beach Big Mouth Juice Extractor for only $39.

Difference Between Juicer and Blender

Before I compare and contrast the two juicers, I want to discuss the difference between a blender and juicer. A juicer or juice extractor separates the pulp and fibers from fruits and vegetables into a chamber resulting in clear juice free from pulp, which pours out of the machine’s spout.

The leftover pulp can, however, be used in casseroles, soups, and cookies, or for garden composting.

A blender, on the other hand, does not separate anything from fruits and vegetables. The skin, along with seeds, pulp, and fiber are all blended together.

It’s important to note that besides the vitamins and minerals, the health advantages in eating many fruits and vegetables, such as oranges, apples, broccoli, peas, and pears, is for the very pulp and fiber that a juicer extracts from these highly nutritious foods.

A high-fiber diet (see 20 high-fiber foods) helps to reduce the risk of obesity, heart disease and diabetes. Moreover, fiber lowers blood sugar, cholesterol, and helps to prevent colon cancer.

That said, according to one of my favorite nutritional experts, Dr. Mercola, there are three main reasons why you should consider using a juicer:
