Top 5 Hand Press Juicers in India
by| Last Updated
Hand presses or in this case, fruit presses are one of the oldest types of juicers that were used widely in America and Europe. They haven’t evolved much in terms of mechanism and since what works just works, not much has changed since then.
All products mentioned here works by a hand press mechanism which you can actuate and press the cut fruits on to the reamer, through which the juice flows down to the collection cup placed below.
They are built of iron or aluminium and are coated by antirust paint to ensure that there is no corrosion or rust. A wide variety of juices can be made using this juicer. Some of them are as follows: watermerlon, pineapple, orange, pomegranate, kiwi, lemon and mosambi to name a few.
The only additional labour that comes in while operating such juicer is cutting up of the fruits to the necessary shape and size of the ram of your juicer. The proper size cut is needed in order to obtain maximum juice extraction.
Hence, it is advisable to use mostly citrus type fruits of juicing, as it is the easiest to fit in. Due to this, they are also called citrus press.
