Sugar Cane Juicer

Pure sugar cane provides carbohydrates that are healthy. The juice from sugar cane contains many nutrients and is much more stable than vegetable juice. While the cane is growing, water is applied frequently to keep the overall sugar content as low as possible, although sugar cane juice is very sweet. It is a bit sweeter than natural orange juice and has less sugar than a can of soda. Commercial machines for getting juice from the sugar cane are very expensive, but lower priced, more home-worthy sugar cane juicers are now available. Older, more traditional models of sugar cane juicers involved wooden roller presses that actually pressed the juice from the cane. Today’s sugar cane juicers however are much more modern and much easier to use.

There are many juicer models currently on the market that range in size, design and price. Depending on which features you choose, you may find them very affordable or very expensive. Before you purchase a sugar cane juicer, you should be aware of the features that are available and choose a model that offers the features that you need.

Models such as the MCI-170 are typically fairly expensive, almost as expensive as commercial machines in fact. This particular model includes a stainless steel cabinet as well as a stainless steel drum and body. It has a drink tap attached and can process just over 150 sugar canes each hour. The electric model has a 1.5 horse-power motor and a gas unit is also available in this model. It weighs around 190 pounds and measures 16 inches by 18 inches by 22 inches. It is a quite heavy machine, much like those used commercially. If you are looking for an expensive and lightweight model, this may not be the best choice. If however, you are planning to use a sugar cane juicer for commercial purposes, it is a good choice.

Zama Enterprises has developed a more convenient and portable sugar cane juicer. The Abamaster SCJE includes a ½ horse-power motor and is very durable. In addition, it has a stainless steel drum and body and can produce about half the sugar cane juice as the above listed model. It is much smaller and more portable than a professional or commercial unit however and is slightly less expensive. Those wanting a juicer for home use or for less demanding commercial use may find this model perfect. Also developed by Zama Enterprises is the Sugar Cane Juice Extractor 2000. This model is still rather large and weighs around 100 pounds. It does include a stainless steel drum and body and features a front cover that is easily removable for cleaning purposes. Still, it is rather heavy for home use. If you are searching for a sugar can juicer that you can easily use from home, a vegetable juicer may be the best choice.

If you do decide to purchase a sugar cane juicer for either home or commercial use, there are things to consider before you buy. Make sure that your chosen model offers ease of cleaning. If you have to spend too much time cleaning it, you will likely not use it as much as you need to. Try to find a model that has removable parts that are dishwasher safe. Also, unless you need an especially heavy machine, choose the one that offers the least weight. The most lightweight the machine is, the more convenient it will be to use as well as clean.

Keep safety in mind as well. Safety features are crucial on any appliance. Try to find a model that has safety features such as rubber feet to keep the juicer from slipping when used. This will help you to keep noise and vibrations down as well. Keep in mind that anytime you purchase products such as electronics or appliances, a warranty is crucial. A good sugar cane juicer should have a warranty that covers the blades and motor for at least one year. Less expensive models may have a warranty that covers specific parts for three months or more. Whichever way you choose to go, make sure that the product you purchase has a warranty to protect you in case the motor, blades or other functioning parts stops working shortly after you purchase it.
