If you want your juice smooth and pulpy, the best choice is to use a masticating juicer. Masticating juicers are also known as slow juicers, these juicers crush and squeeze the fruit, then filters out the pulp. On the other hand, centrifugal juicer actually shred the fruits and then it will spin at high speed to separate the pulp and juice. Masticating juicers are known for their drier pulp and more juice they produce. The fiber stays in and the juice is smooth and thick at the same time. Breville BJS600XL belongs to slow juicer category.
