Centrifugal juicers utilize fast moving blades to cut up and break down food. Through this process, juices are bled from fruits and vegetables and flow from the juice spout. High-power motors ranging from 600 to 12,000 watts keep these blades moving at a range of high speeds necessary for breaking down a variety of fruits and vegetables.
Some centrifugal juicers feature multiple speeds designed to optimally break down specific types of foods. Speeds can range from 6,000 to 16,000 rotations per minute (RPMs). Lower speeds are designed to break down soft foods, whereas faster speeds are best for breaking down hard foods.
Although they do not yield as much juice as masticating juicers and often leave you with rather wet pulp in the pulp collector, centrifugal juicers work very quickly and are perfect for people with busy lifestyles.
