Wheat grass is quickly becoming one of the most popular health food supplements around and with good reason. This super food has a whole host of health benefits and can help treat and prevent many health conditions. The best way to get wheat grass into your body is in liquid form by juicing fresh wheat grass, because of this wheat grass juicers have become very popular devices so we decided to take a look at some of the best and most popular ones on the market.
One of the most popular sellers is this manual stainless steel juicer from Handy Pantry. Obviously this requires some manual labour but if you are on a health kick then surely this is an added benefit. You get to burn some calories while making your juice. This juicer is surprisingly effective even though it can be tough to grind your wheat grass if you put too much in at once.
It’s really easy to clean which is great as these things get stuck up with pulp and can get sticky if you don’t clean them properly. Some juicers can be notoriously difficult to clean but there are no such problems here.
This juicer attaches to your worktop with a simple clamp so you will need a worktop or table you can clamp it onto which might put some people off if they don’t have a suitable surface handy.
It’s really well made with quality materials and should last a lifetime. If you decide to go for a manual juicer then this is a fine choice.
If you are looking for a more automatic solution then this juicer from Aicok could be the one for you. Of course it can juice much more than wheat grass but it does an exceptional job on wheat grass which is of course what we are looking for here. One of the key things about juicing wheat grass is to do it slowly. Juicing too fast will cause the juice to heat up which can kill off some of the health benefiting enzymes in the juice. This is one of the main reasons many people go for a manual device when looking for something specially for wheat grass.
This device juices fast enough that you don’t have to wait around long but it’s slow enough not to be detrimental to your wheat grass. It is pretty quiet in operation as well but obviously not as quiet as a manual juicer.
Because of the slow process and squeezing motion this juicer can get a really large amount of juice from whatever it is juicing. Up to 98% of the available juice is captured here.
This juicer continues to be one of the most popular sellers on Amazon. It is of course more expensive than some of the juicers on our list but you get what you pay for here. If you are going to be using your juicer regularly then you might as well pay a bit more and get one that is going to last and produce the results you want.
This juicer excels in juicing greens and is especially good at wheat grass juice extraction. As it is a masticating juicer it does this with a slow squeezing process that won’t degrade the juice you get from your wheat grass.
Cleanup is a doddle here as well. All juicers have a screen that the grass gets pushed through, they are made with tiny holes in them to allow the juice to pass through. Naturally these get clogged up and need to be cleaned after each use. With a lot of juicers on the market this is a complete pain as you have to use a special brush to scrub them clean. As the Omega has a relatively small screen it is much quicker to clean than others and is one of the quickest to clean in its class.
It’s not the best looking juicer on the market (although it does now come in silver) but that shouldn’t really be much of a concern here. It is exceptionally good at what it is designed to do.
I was a big fan of this one when I tried it out for a few reasons. First let’s get to its looks, granted I just said it’s not important but some of these things are quite big so will be sat on your kitchen worktop if you don’t have the storage space so you want something that doesn’t look out of place as well as being a great juicer. This Hamilton model looks the part. It has a modern look and feel without sacrificing it’s essential functionality.
It’s incredibly easy to use and like the others juices at the required speed to make sure you get all the nutrients and vitamins from the wheat grass.
Because this is a more modern model juicer it has some modern benefits. It is very energy efficient for a start but is also BPA free on all the parts that come into contact with food. When it comes to cleaning this is one of the easiest around, most of the parts can simply be rinsed under the tap to get clean but if it needs a really good clean then the removable parts can all go in the dishwasher.
It also comes with a handy recipe book that will keep you busy experimenting for quite a while. At its current price point I think this is one of the best value juicers available right now.
This last item on our list is one of the best and another great entry from juicing experts. As you can see from the image the design is a little bit different and as such it has a smaller footprint in your kitchen. It’s easier to store and takes up less room on the counter.
If you are serious about your wheat grass juicing then this could be the model for you. It has an RPM of just 43 making it one of the slowest juicers in this range. This of course means less damage to the juice meaning it retains more nutrients and stays good for longer. Most low speed juicers have a 80RPM.
It has an auto cleaning function which helps keep the all important screen clear when in use meaning more juice for you. It also has an automatic pulp extraction system meaning you can juice continually without having to stop to clear the pulp from the machine.
I love the way it looks, it’s one of the best designs I have seen from any juicer. I also love how well it works. It is the most expensive juicer on the list but it is a seriously well made and well working machine. It has every function you could want and produces great juice from whatever you decide to throw at it. For wheat grass you will be hard pushed to better this one.
So there you have 5 of the best wheat grass juicers available right now. All slightly different and all with varying price tags. What you need to look for when you are looking for a wheat grass juicer is a slow masticating juicer. Look for one that specifically mentions wheat grass in it’s description. The slow juicing and squeezing process is essential for wheat grass to make sure you don’t lose any nutrients by getting heat or oxygen into the juice. Traditional centrifugal juicers are no good for wheat grass as they blend it up to fast getting too much oxygen into the juice ruining its healthy properties. These wheat grass juicers are great for other leafy greens too.
If you are looking for a manual version then number one on the list is the way to go. There are many other manual options available but many of them are plastic and not BPA free. The Handy Pantry Hurricane is well made with stainless steel meaning it will last a long time and pass on no harmful chemicals into your juice. If you want an electric model then there are many to choose from and your price range may dictate which one you go for. All the juicers on our list are great but our 2 favorites were the Hamilton Beach and the Omega Vertical. Both are fantastic value for money and will give you amazing quality wheat grass juice.
