Gift Guide: Juicing Essentials

Issue 104 · Winter Wonderland · December 23, 2013

Juicing can be intimidating; when words like centrifugal and oxidation are applied, we start to shy away.

We prefer to keep things simple and easy. Start with an affordable juicer and some fruit and vegetable—and a little peeling, chopping, and pouring later, you're done. Here, five pieces to get you started: 

Bella Appliances 5 Speed Juicer, Remodelista  

Above: The Bella 5-Speed Juicer in Stainless Steel is a more-than-basic juicer at a good price. An easy-read LED dial tells you which speed to use on which fruits and vegetables, and a wide feed tube means you can add many ingredients without pre-chopping; $99.99 on Amazon.

Rada Cutlery Stainless Steel Vegetable Peeler, Remodelista

Above: Prep your produce with a good-looking stainless steel vegetable peeler that's super-sharp, and made in the US. The Rada Cutlery Deluxe Vegetable Peeler with Aluminum Handle is $7.75 on Amazon.

Epicurean Cutting Board in Slate, Remodelista

Above: These wood fiber chopping boards are dishwasher-safe and maintenance-free. The Epicurean Kitchen Series 15 x 11-Inch Cutting Board in slate is $24.99 on Amazon.

EcoBags Cotton Muslin Drawstring Produce Bags, Remodelista

Above: Bypass grocery store throwaway plastic bags by using cotton produce sacks for shopping and fridge storage. EcoBags Drawstring Cotton Gauze Produce Bags are $7.31 for a reusable set of three 8-1/2 x 11-inch bags on Amazon. 

Duralex Picardie Glass Tumblers, Remodelista

Above: Duralex Picardie Tumblers are a classic and durable French design that's perfect for juice (and wine, too); $23.95 for a set of six 8-3/4 ounce glasses on Amazon.
