You won’t necessarily need a large juicer for ginger – a little goes a long way. You’ll need an appliance with tough blades though, and slow operation. Ginger is packed with goodness, so there is little point in destroying this nutrition with heat.
5 Best Juicers for Ginger and Ginger Shots Reviews
I promised reviews of five of the finest ginger juicer machines, and I am a woman of my word. In my eyes, these appliances are the pick of the bunch if you’re juicing ginger!
Our Top Pick – Omega NC800HDS Juicer Machine
Only three things in life are certain – death, taxes, and the Omega NC800HDS masticating juicer featuring at the top of these lists. This is one of the most celebrated juicers in the world, for a wide range of reasons.
First and foremost, we have the performance. This, alone, should be enough to convince anybody bring a little more Omega into their lives. This appliance performs efficiently (the blades work at 80 rpm) but quietly.
In addition, I like to call this appliance the little juicer that could. I have put my own model through its paces for years, and it’s still going strong. When you juice as much as me, that’s a huge plus. I haven’t needed to use it, but this appliance also boasts a whopping 15 years of warranty.
How about juicing ginger, though? That’s what you’re here for. This model makes short work of any ingredient, and you won’t even be limited to juice. You can incorporate ginger into butters and spreads, pesto and much more. Versatility is just one of the many plus points of this masterful juicer.
- Reliable, consistent performance.
- Versatility in use.
- Higher juice yield and great taste.
- Handle all kinds of leafy greens
Budget Pick – Breville BJE200XL Centrifugal Juicers
If you’re looking for a more wallet-friendly addition to your kitchen, the BJE200XL will rapidly become your best friend. This is a small and compact version of the larger Juice Fountain model, and it works at warp speed.
There is, however, a small price to pay for these rapid results. This is a centrifugal juicer, not a slow model. This means the blades will turn and chop at 14,000 rotations per minute. Some sacrifice of nutrition is inevitable. It’s far from a disaster – you’ll still be getting plenty of goodness from your ginger. Just not quite as much as you will from other models.
This appliance also only has a single-year warranty. As I intimated at the start of this review, however, that’s all reflected in the initial outlay. This is a pint-sized appliance, both in terms of dimensions and price. You’ll definitely see results for your investment, and you can always upgrade at a later date.
- Budget ginger juicing.
- Small spaces.
- Fast results.
Upgrade Pick – Tribest GS-P502
Speaking of upgrades, they don’t get much more enhanced than the GS-P502, aka the Greenstar Pro. This is a commercial standard juicer that is a fixture of many juice-centric businesses.
First thing’s first – you’ll need to raid multiple piggy banks to finance this model, and probably still check the sofa cushions for spare change. However, you will get what you pay for. It’s also backed up by a 15-year warranty, so you’ll be able to sleep a little easier. Just be aware that this drops to 3 years of you use the GS-P502 for professional endeavors.
Using a unique and bespoke twin-gear crushing process, this juicer extracts every single ounce of goodness from ingredients. A daily shot of ginger juice from this appliance is leave you feeling invulnerable.
Overall, this juicer is a monster – both in size and function. I defy anybody to find fault with the end product, while operation and cleaning are both simple. It’s just a shame that you’ll need to remortgage your home to pay for it.
- Professional-standard juicing at home.
- Out-of-this-world taste and nutrition.
- Lifelong juicing goodness – this is a sturdy appliance.
KOIOS Cold Press Juicer
This juicer from KOIOS sits very neatly in the middle of the road. It’s mid-priced – cheaper than some, costlier than others. It performs well – very well, in fact – without quite reaching the heights of rival appliances. The warranty is impressive on paper – 10 years. Alas, that only refers to the motor. Everything else is only covered for three.
In all honestly, I don’t really have a bad thing to say about this appliance. It makes short work of any ingredient, including ginger. It’s a little quieter than some, whirring away below the volume of a typical conversation. The yield and nutritional value are impressive. It’s available in two colors, red or white. Cleaning is quick and easy. It’s a good, solid appliance.
If you come across this model on your search for a ginger juicer, it’s excellent. The only reason that I’m not more excited is that it doesn’t have a single, outstanding feature that places it above competitors as a must own. If you buy this juicer, you’ll be perfectly happy – maybe even delighted – with the results. It just won’t revolutionize your life.
- Solid, reliable performance.
- Easy to clean.
- Ability to process any ingredient.
SKG Q8 Slow Juicer
If you’re patient and place a great deal of emphasis on nutrition, this a model that’s worthy of consideration. The Q8 juices at a rate of just 45 rotations per minute. Yes, this takes longer to see results, but you’ll also receive every single drop of goodness found in a stick of ginger.
The default color of this appliance is deep red, which may not appeal to everybody. You can also pick it up in silver or white, but there could be a price discrepancy involved there. The warranty is for two years, whichever shade tickles your fancy.
In terms of performance, the Q8 does SKG proud. The pulp is dry as a bone and can easily be repurposed. If there is a flaw, however, it’s in prolonged use. After around ten minutes, I found that this juicer starts to shut down to cool off. That may be frustrating if you’re a batch juicer.
- Range of colors.
- Slow operation, leading to high nutrition.
- Short, controlled bursts of juicing.
Ginger Juicer FAQs
Ginger is not always the first ingredient you may think of when planning a juicing diet. To that end, you’ll likely have some questions. Here are a handful of common questions surrounding using this ingredient for liquid lunch.
Can You Put Ginger in a Juicer?
Yes, ginger can be placed in a juicer – with certain caveats. Ginger is tough, so you’ll need a juicer with a sufficiently strong motor. Slow, masticated blades are also best. This way, you are sure to squeeze every drop of goodness and nutrition from your ginger.
Can Ginger be Juiced with Skin?
If you are using a juicer, there is no need to peel a piece of ginger. There is goodness and nutrition in the skin, and a juicer will make use of this. Just wash the vegetable thoroughly before feeding it into your appliance.
How Do I Make Ginger Juice with a Juicer?
Take a good look at your ginger, ensuring that it is devoid of any mold or spores. Once you’re happy that the ginger is fresh, give it a wash and pop it into your juicer. There’s no need to peel it first. Grind up your ginger in the juicer, then dilute and sweeten to your taste.
Do You Need to Refrigerate Ginger Juice?
Ginger has a shorter shelf life than some vegetables, so you’ll definitely need to keep your juice in the fridge. Store it in an airtight container and consume within 48 hours. If you don’t think you’ll meet this deadline, freeze your juice – or just drink it immediately!
Is Ginger Good for Juicing?
Ginger is great for juicing, if your appliance can cope with it. It’s particularly advisable during the winter months, when seasonal colds and viruses do the rounds. Add a little ginger to your daily juice, and your home will be a sniffle-free zone. Ginger also improves heart health and digestion and reduces muscular pain.
I hope I’ve convinced you that you should be juicing ginger regularly, regardless of the appliance that you choose to do so. Personally, I stand by my recommendation of the Omega NC800HDS masticating juicer, but any high-quality juicer will do. Just bring ginger in your daily diet – trust me when I say that you’ll thank me for it!
