With such an array of cold press juicers available in the market, it can be hard to know which type or brand is best for you. Your needs can depend upon dietary, health, usability and/or functionality requirements.
The first thing to do when looking for a juicer is to ask yourself a few simple questions:
- Do you see yourself as a beginner (new to juicing), a health enthusiast (knowledgeable about the benefits of different types of fruits/vegetables) or a patient (looking to overcome an illness naturally)?
- Are you wanting to juice mostly fruit or mostly vegetables?
- What features are important to you - ease of cleaning, ease of use, juicing speed?
- Are you looking to juice specialised superfoods such as wheatgrass, aloe vera or pomegranate?
- Do you like the idea of a juicer which can also perform food processing tasks?
Having clear buying objectives will allow you to select a machine that suits you best!
It may surprise you to learn that there are 5 different types of cold press juicers, and each are suited to different types of customers and their needs. Firstly, it is important to determine where you are on the "road to health" and more specifically, what you are looking for in a juicer...

Beetroot Juice - good for the heart and your health
Thanks to Heart Week we are becoming more aware of our hearts and what we can do to protect them. I am not sure if beetroot juice will protect your heart from being broken, however, this delicious, luscious red vegetable can play an important role in keeping your heart healthy.
A natural way to lower blood pressure
Studies have shown that "that a daily glass of beetroot juice can lower blood pressure in people with hypertension - even those whose high blood pressure was not controlled by drug treatment." Dr. Shannon Amoils, British Heart Foundation, senior research advisor
Beetroot contains high levels of dietary nitrate (NO3), which the body converts into biologically active nitrite (NO2) and nitric oxide (NO). These nitrates relax and dilate blood vessels, thereby having a blood pressure lowering effect on the human body.
Boost your activity with beetroot juice
Keeping active is one of the Heart Foundation's key elements in keeping a healthy heart. Even walking up to 30 minutes a day can be helpful. If you can't get outside as much as you would like a walking treadmill can help you keep your steps up... add a glass of beetroot juice and studies show you can exercise longer.
For example, studies
In a nutshell YES. People are becoming more and more discerning about what they eat and how they can get the best nutrient filled drink or meal for their healthy body buck. The high powered blender and cold press juicer offer different ways for the body to ingest healthy nutrients, enzymes and just plain deliciousness. Put simply the blender will retain the fibre and the juicer will give you a quicker nutrient blast that can be absorbed more easily. Both a juicer and a blender are important for different reasons but together they are unstoppable.
What does my cold press juicer do?
A cold pressed juicer is a masticating cold pressed juice extractor which also doubles as a living food kitchen appliance. The horizontal style auger design crushes almost any type of vegetables and fruits including leafy greens (kale, wheatgrass, herbs, aloe). The crushing and squeezing action mimics our own chewing action by correctly breaking open the cell wall, releasing the nutrients and organic water content while expelling the insoluble fibre.
Without all this indigestible fibre, your body doesn't have to work as hard to break down the vegetables and fruits. Cold pressed vegetable juices deliver nutrients into our bloodstream quickly and in a bio-available form. Juices are included in almost all types of healing and detoxification programs. The cold press juicer is named so because no friction heat is applied to the ingredients meaning all of the important enzymes are retained and remain valid for up to 48 hours. Lets look at the blender and see
BioChef is excited to announce the newest product to their Cold Press Juicer range - the BioChef Axis Compact Juicer. Perfect for beginners, this juicer allows the user to juicer a wide variety of fruits and vegetables while being compact and lightweight in design. But what about the original BioChef Axis Cold Press Juicer? How does the new BioChef Axis Compact juicer compare to the already popular BioChef Axis? Read on to find out more.
There are five main differences between the BioChef Axis Compact and the BioChef Axis Cold Press Juicer. These include the motor type, size and weight of the product, food processing abilities, warranty, and the price.
Both the BioChef Axis Compact and the BioChef Axis Cold Press Juicer have 150w motors and run at 80RPM, however the difference between these two machines is motor type. The BioChef Axis Juicer has a D.C. motor, meaning it is not as ‘heavy duty’ as the BioChef Axis’ A.C. motor.
A D.C. motor has been used in the BioChef Axis Compact juicer to keep the size, weight and price of the juicer down; making it the perfect cold press juicer for those just starting out in ‘cold press juicing world’, for travelers, staff rooms, university dorm rooms, and smaller sized kitchens.
Food Processing Abilities:
One of the unique benefits of the BioChef Axis Cold Press Juicer is that it can juice a wide variety of fruits and vegetables and then quickly turn itself into a food processing machine by the simple switch of the juicing screen to a blank screen. This allows the food to be crushed by the auger and puree the ingredients to make natu

What is Living Juice?
The concept of living juice was first introduced by Dr. Norman Walker (1886-1985) who invented the original cold press juicer in 1934 known as the Norwalk. Dr Walker discovered that enzymes and nutrients in fruit and vegetables perish at temperatures which exceed 50 degrees Celsius.
Tests performed claim that non-centrifugal juicers produce juice that lasts longer and contains more nutrients. These tests showed that the juice from cold press juicers contains more nutrients; and in fact the Hippocrates juicer by Greenpower contains well over double the beta-carotene and alpha-carotene than the juice from every other juicer in their test… and it lasted longer.
Juice from non-centrifugal juicers tends not to separate, smells fresh and looks palatable even after 48 hours in the fridge, indicating less oxidation.
As a society, we are recognizing that essential nutrition is provided simply by changing our diet to a more simple, plant-based one which easily outweighs the convenience of over processed and fast foods. We are hungry for nutrients, not hungry for food and there is no turning back.
It comes from the ground up. People have the consumer power to ask for change about where their food comes from and how they want it prepared. With this shift, we have seen appliances evolve from mere providers of convenience, to work with nature to release the best nutrients in the food, to save waste through efficiency and save time.
So.. how do cold press juicers work?
Cold press juicers operate at a lower speed which in turn, reduces friction heat, thereby creating what has been termed a a cold pressed or living juice. With

So, what makes the BioChef Atlas Juicer different?
Easier to use and to clean!
Perfect for both beginners and those who have been juicing for decades, the BioChef Atlas is designed to be the most easy to use and simple cold press juicer available on the market.
Unlike other vertical cold press juicers on the market, the BioChef has a flat base in the juicing drum/bowl. Our customers were finding with their Hurom Juicers (which have a deep groove/indent inside the bowl) that pulp and vegetable matter would build up and stick, making it very hard to clean and keep looking new. You can further Compare Hurom and BioChef Juicers here.

Buying a 'slow' or 'living juicer' can be a challenging decision because there are so many to choose from. Before making a purchase it is important to understand whether you will benefit most from a horizontal or vertical living juice extractor.
The BioChef Juicers range has been developed to offer customers the choice between either horizontal or vertical juicers because we understand that every lifestyle is different. Whether you are time poor, or a juicing enthusiast we have the best juicer for you to choose from.
Horizontal slow juicers such as the BioChef Axis Living Juicer / Processor are exceptional for juicing leafy greens and wheatgrass and being utilised as a complete living food processing appliance. Vertical juicers like the BioChef Atlas Living Juicer are outstanding for juicing soft fruits and vegetables, are great nut milk makers and have a very small kitchen bench footprint.
While the BioChef Juicers are similarly priced there are also a few things to consider - extra features, juicing ability and functions. Take a closer look at the table below to compare the two (2) juicer models to help you make an informed decision before purchasing a cold press juicer.

A new type of juicer has arrived which is commonly called a vertical cold pressing or 'slow' juicer.
They sit in the same category as other juicers that produce a juice which is still full of essential enzymes, nutrients and vitamins (The Hippocrates Twin Gear, Oscar Neo 1000, Oscar Vital Max and the Vertical Juicer models (700, 500 and 400)).
These slow juicers differ from the Hippocrates and Oscar models in that they:
- are primarily fruit and vegetable juicers
- have a larger feeding chute
- make remarkable alternative milk drinks (such as nut or soy milks)
- are the fastest producers of juice even though they still operate at the RPM's which prevents enzyme and nutrient loss.
Here are some tips to get the best out of the Hurom models of juicers.
1) Juice less fibrous produce first. Begin with carrots, beetroot, watermelon, apples and then add the more stringy produce such as celery or leafy greens. Tear or cut up the more fibrous vegetables into smaller pieces.
2) Make it easy on the machine. Even though this series of vertical slow juicers have a wider feeding chute than most other cold pressed juicers, a few simple steps will ensure an easier process. Cut carrots on an angle to further help the self feeding process, and cut larger produce such as apples into smaller pieces. Remember, you can find a whole apple juicer, but much of the goodness is degraded due to the harsh grating and high speed spinning friction.
3) Feed leafy greens in without crunching them up. This allows the
The BioChef Juicer is perfect for beginners and those just getting started with Cold Press Juicing. Not only is the initial cost of the BioChef significantly less, the costs saved on produce, efficiency and, of course health benefits, means the BioChef Juicer will pay for itself very quickly.
