Upright Juicers use a single auger that presses and squeezes fruit and vegetable fibers and breaks up the plant cells, resulting in more fiber, enzymes, vitamins and trace minerals. Upright juicers are dramatically more efficient than Centrifugal juicers because they can extract more juice from the same amount of food (i.e. the pulp comes out dryer). Upright juicers are very capable at juicing most fruits and vegetables, and they will also extract juice from wheatgrass, spinach, and other leafy greens and herbs.
Another benefit of upright juicers is that they operate at slower speeds (RPMs) than centrifugal juicers, resulting in less foam and heat, which means more nutrition in your glass. Upright juicers offer the smallest footprint available of any electric juicer. Upright juicers are also more versatile than centrifugal juicers because, in addition to extracting juices, these juicers also homogenize foods to make baby foods, pates, sauces, nut butters, banana ice creams and fruit sorbets (please be sure the manufacturer's warranty will support all of these).
