Breville Automatic Citrus Press Juicers
While some people are into juicing almost anything, others prefer the taste of fresh squeezed orange, lemon, or grapefruit juice. While most juicers can handle almost any kind of plant matter, some even do nuts, Breville automatic citrus press juicers focus on the unique physical qualities of citrus fruits.Types of Juicer
In the general juicer world, there are two basic types of juicer: centrifugal and slow press. A centrifugal juicer uses a high-speed blade working against a metal mesh. It sounds like a blender, but it's an easy way to get most fruits and vegetables turned into juice. Despite the name, a slow press juicer isn't actually that much slower than a centrifugal model. These juicers use a two-step process, first crushing and then pressing. They produce less heat, but cost more. Neither is optimal for citrus fruitsCitrus Press Juicers
The key to a citrus press juicer is the cone. Designed specifically for the flesh of citrus fruits, it sits in the top of the unit. All you do is cut the fruit in half and place it flesh side down on the cone. You then press the lever, which squeezes the fruit against the cone, extracting fresh citrus juice from the pulp. It's that simple.Breville Juicers
The Breville Citrus Press Pro is a stainless steel automatic citrus press juicer. With its power-assisted arm, you don't need to exert a lot of force to get maximum juice extraction with minimum effort. Once the arm is down, the Quadra-Fin cone spins up to extract all the juice from the fruit. That's a huge advantage if you're making litres of orange juice for the whole family.Metal vs. Plastic
While Breville uses a metal cone and assembly, there are plastic automatic citrus press juicers. While generally less expensive than metal, plastic is also harder to clean. Not all the components can go in the dishwasher, as some are less resistant to heat. Plastic is also more absorbent than metal, so it reacts with the acid.
