Juicers / Smoothie Makers

Juicers / Smoothie Makers

Juicers and smoothie makers are a dedicated kitchen appliance that serve a single, straight forward and ultimately satisfying purpose; to create great tasting, highly nutritious drinks that are without doubt the most convenient way of getting your 5-a-day.

Juicers and smoothie makers are basically two different mean of achieving a similar result. The difference between which one you decide to purchase will come down to your personal preferences. The subtle differences between the two afford you the luxury of being choosey in order to get exactly what you want.

Here at Chapman’s Electrical we keep a good number of both Juicers and Smoothie makers in stock, all sourced from reputable and reliable manufacturers, ranging in price across the board. But we know it may help for you to know the differences between the two when making your final choice. You can always pick up the phone or call into our showroom and we will be happy to give you a tutorial. But for now, here are some of the distinguishing features:

Juicers: A juicer will tend to produce a thinner liquid substance than a smoothie maker which, depending on the ingredients used, can have quite a thick consistency, whereas juicers, baring the occasional residue of pulp, will be watery. For the most part, a juicer will come in one of two forms. It will be either a Centrifugal juicer or a masticating juicer. Centrifugal juicers are more commonly available and use a tooth bladed sieve to produce a refreshing drink from your favourite fruits and veg very rapidly indeed. This form of juicer also offers the lowest chance of pulp being left in the finished product. Then there are masticating juicers. These while being more expensive will offer advantages such as a higher yield of juice and the retention of valuable nutrients making the end product a little healthier. The juice is produced by crushing fruits and vegetables with rotating gear-like augers. This is a slower process than what the Centrifugal models offer but what it lacks in speed it certainly makes up for in quality.

Smoothie Makers: Smoothie makers have become increasingly popular over the last few years. Since their inception they have been a helpful aid to those with eating issues and nutritional deficiencies as it it’s a quick and simple way of getting almost any required sustenance. However more recently smoothie makers have become an essential part of everyday life for those pursuing personal fitness goals. Often with modern protein and energy based dietary regimes the methodology is to eat smaller meals with greater frequency and for those looking to stick to this instruction, mixing fresh and tasty fruits and oats with a dietary or performance supplement to drink on the go is a real lifesaver. Smoothie makers as a rule operate under the same basic functions from model to model. They’re designed to quickly and efficiently transform food-stuffs into drinks and the ability to get creative with an endless amount of smoothie maker recipe possibilities. Some models may have little add-ons such as a dispensing spout or a blasting jug that doubles as a travel mug to sweeten the deal.

What our Customers have to say:


Having previously purchased a washing machine at a great price from Chapmans I asked them to repair my Canon Range cooker Their technician arrived on time, diagnosed the problem quickly, had the parts needed on his van and repaired it promptly at quoted price. Professional courteous service which I would recommend to anyone. A breath of fresh air compared to some so-called specialists we have encountered. Good old fashioned service with hi tech skills!
