Squeeze Taste, Nutrition, And Profit with Commercial Juicers
Commercial juicers are manual or automatic beverage equipment to squeeze fresh juice from fruit and vegetables. Freshly-squeezed juice promises countless benefits, such as boosting energy, improving digestion, and helping consume recommended daily intake of fruit and vegetables. Juicers create these beneficial results by separating the juice and pulp, thus producing pure, nutritionally-rich juice. That's why restaurants, bars, hotels, recreation centers, and other foodservice, hospitality, and catering facilities invest in commercial juicer machines.
Types Of Commercial Juicers
All commercial juicers serve the same purpose: to extract the maximum amount of fresh and healthy juice from the product as quickly as possible. However, the way they achieve this purpose differs in three main ways.
Citrus Juicers:These are the traditional commercial juicers with a juicing cone where you press one-half of citrus fruit. Handheld, manual, and electric models are available. In electric models, a powerful motor spins the juicing cone to extract the juice, which then flows into a container. These commercial orange juicers are ideal for low to medium-volume production. The user had to halve the fruit in the past, but newer models remove this need. With an automatic feeding system, citrus juicers can process tens of oranges, limes, or lemons per minute.
Centrifugal Juicers:These are the classical professional juicers you often see in restaurants, cafes, department stores, bars, or spas. They feature fast-spinning sharp blades to shred fruit or vegetables. The stainless speed strainer basket rotates at high rpm rates to process large quantities of fruit and vegetables. The rotation provides the centrifugal force needed to extract juice from the pulp. Centrifugal commercial juicers are the most common type on the market. They are perfect for medium to high-production demands.
- Sweet juice that can stay fresh longer
- No bitter taste of the fruit skin
- Usually inexpensive compared to others
- Less noisy
- Fast and efficient
Cold Press Juicers:Commercial cold press juicers are also known as masticating juicers. They work by chewing fruit and vegetables into tiny pieces with an auger. The crushed pieces are then pressed through a fine strainer for maximum juice extraction, and all this happens gently at lower speeds, ensuring minimum foamy juice. Heavy-duty models can also be used as industrial juicers in food production plants.

How To Choose The Best Commercial Juicer
Every business type may need a specific commercial juicer type. Your choice will depend on what kind of products you squeeze, how much fresh juice you serve, or where you do the juice-extracting operation. For instance, a commercial cold press juicer is your pick if you run a noise-sensitive facility. Similarly, a cold press is better if you often squeeze greens like spinach or kale.
However, operators prioritizing speed for back-to-back fresh juice servings can use a centrifugal juicer. If your juicing process is in front of the customers, centrifugal commercial juicers might not be wise because they are very noisy. Finally, establishments that often serve orange juice, lemonade, or limeade can benefit from citrus juicers. For example, a bar that only presses citrus fruit to use in cocktails can choose a citrus juicer.
