Budget is always a concern these days, and if it isn’t yet, then it should be. This is because times are hard anywhere you look. A person must be vigilant when purchasing anything. Considering value for money should be at the top of the list. With this in mind, let’s take a look at whether it is a smart decision to buy a hand juicer.
What does a juicer do and how will it serve you? A juicer, simply put, extracts the juice from a food item. This is beneficial to the person because it is in raw food that we are able to get unadulterated vitamins and minerals needed for our body to stay immune to illnesses. A juicer then would be the best and easiest way to help keep yourself healthy. But is it possible to own a juicer if you have a tight budget?
The answer is ‘yes’. There is the very simple juicer known as the hand juicer. The hand juicer is a manual juice that extracts juice from fruit and vegetable. There are many kinds of hand juicers. There is the basic citrus hand juicer and then there is the more modern press-style hand juicer. If you are satisfied with drinking citrus fruit extract only, then a citrus hand juicer will do and this can cost as low as $3. But if you want to juice more kinds of fruit and even vegetables, then it is wiser to get the general purpose hand juicer. These are usually made of stainless steel, very easy to assemble and clean, and small and portable. These are also more expensive, but the good news is that they last virtually a lifetime – you can get a press-style hand juicer from $70-$200. The cost will depend on how complex a hand juicer you want. Remember that there is no one juicer that juices everything, so it is also important to know what you want to juice before making a purchase. And even if the cost of a general hand juicer or wheatgrass juicer is significantly more than a citrus hand juicer, the benefits from juicing more will be worth the one-time expense.
