The Twin Gear Juicer
The Juicer for those Serious About Juicing
Perhaps the crown jewel of home juice extractors, the twin gear juicer shares many of the same features of the ordinary masticating juicer, but there are some significant differences as well. Twin Gear juicers function with two (twin) interlocking gears aligned very closely together. They work by pressing and crushing rather than my tearing and shredding, and consequently, of all home juicer types other than the vastly more expensive hydraulic press juicers, cause the least amount of damage to the nutrient content of juices produced.
Twin Gear Juicrs may also be correctly termed Triturate Juicers. "Triturate" is defined as "To rub, crush, grind, or pound into fine particles or a powder; pulverize." A triturate juicer does not rub, crush, or grind fruits and vegetables into a fine powder, but they do crush and grind produce to produce juice. These low-speed, precision engineered machines do not produce significant heat, do not promote oxidation and do not disrupt the cellular structure of the fruits and vegetables. The low speed also eliminates oxidation to the juices, therefore, preserving the precious enzymes and nutrients that are such a beneficial part of our diet.
