When you are shopping for a juicer, there are several factors to take into consideration.
* A home juicing machine with a motor rating of 450 watts or greater is recommended. The heat from a more powerful juicer motor will destroy the nutrients in the juice by oxidation.
* A less powerful juicer will strain the motor and your vegetable juicer will eventually break down.
* Buy a home juicer, as opposed to a commercial juicer, with a well known brand name. You want a reputable company behind your juicing machine and finding replacement parts for lesser known brands of juicers can be difficult, even impossible. You do not want to be juiceless for a prolonged period awaiting delivery of replacement parts.
