Every time you slice an orange or lemon with a knife, you are sure to see a certain amount of juice spilling out. The more you slice the orange, the more juice you create. Centrifugal juicers use a similar cutting technique to create juice, except that it's on a larger level. A blade in the juicer spins at thousands of RPMs to cut the orange, or other produce, into tiny pieces, releasing most of the juice.
The spinning blade in a centrifugal juicer creates a whirlwind of activity in the body of the juicer that throws the juice to the outer edges of the juicing bowl. A specially designed tube, called a juice chute, allows the juice to exit the bowl and fall into a juice pitcher. Some centrifugal juicers have a built in pulp removal system, so you do not have to constantly stop the juicer to remove pulp.
Limitations of Centrifugal Juicers
While centrifugal juicers do a great job on most produce, leafy greens (like mustard greens) and grasses (like wheatgrass) do not work in centrifugal juicers. The spinning blades of centrifugal juicers will cut the leaves or grass and send them away from the blades. The leafy pieces will only get smaller and no juices will be created.
