Upright design of slow juicers have revolutionised juicer industry. Vertical slow juicer gives you benefits of masticating juicer(high yield & nutrient rich juice) and convenience(no need to cut and push stuff ) of a centrifugal machine.
Vertical masticating juicer is a style of juicer that we recommend if you want to juice little bit of everything. They will juice fruits, vegetables and greens. Although keep in mind, if you want to juice lot of greens these are not the machines we recommend. If you want to juice mostly greens, we recommend a horizontal masticating juicer like Omega 8006 or Greenstar Elite.
Also vertical masticating juicers make pulpier juice compared to any other type of juicers. But they are convenient, efficient, self feeding, and they make high quality juice.
