Citrus Juicers: A citrus juicer provides the convenience of juicing citrus fruits at home so you can enjoy the benefits of fresh squeezed citrus juice any time.

Manual Press Juicers: Since the juice is pressed through cheesecloth, the juice is virtually pulp free, but can be a slow process. Requires produce to be shredded in order to be pressed and squeezes the juice out of the produce with pressure.

Single Gear a.k.a. Masticating Juicers: These produce less foam, and can be utilized to make baby food, sauces, & sorbets. A slow turning single auger is used by these types of juicers to crush the produce into the walls or screen of the juicer.
