Confusion Number 1:

I used to thought both of them seem too similar in functionalities with the difference in the extraction of juice only. And many times this thing triggered me Why they are different in shape then?

Then I found out both of them have many things that are not common at all. The case is different actually, they are different in many ways. Here is the basic difference:

The Blade Designs Are Different:

The blades of juicers are designed in a way that they don’t require water or any liquid to cut and grind the fruits and vegetables. Juicer’s blade is different in shape as compared to the blender which ultimately gives a different impact on the juicer.

The Functionality Is Different:

The aim of both appliances is different. A blender is used to blend, chop or grind. While the juicer is used to cut, grind and extract the juice.

The Shapes Are Different: (Due to Some Reason, Let’s Find Out)

You have noticed the shape of the Blender and Juicers are quite different. It is not just for the sake of differentiating the blender from the juicer. The reason behind it is to make the juicer effective in extraction along with the storage capacity of pulp. They both don’t even resemble each other. Although they somehow perform some similar tasks like chopping and grinding the game changes when the extraction of juice gets involved. Therefore, their shapes are different.

Confusion Number 2:

Adding water to a juicer can damage my juicer.

No. It will not damage your juicer. It will only mix up with the extracted juice and make it diluted. Other than this, nothing will happen with your juicer.

Confusion number 3:

Adding water during Juicing may increase its nutritional values too?

No. The nutritional values will remain the same. It will only increase the volume of the juice. In fact, it will affect the taste of the juice. It will taste more like water and decrease the quality of taste. On the contrary, in some cases, water is added intentionally to get a diluted form of juice.

Confusion number 4:

What will happen when I add water to a juicer?

Adding water during the juicing process will increase the volume of your juice. Juice would be more diluted, less thick and more watery.

These were some most common confusions about juicing with water. Hope it had cleared all your doubts related to juicers needing water or not.

Do we recommend adding water to Juicer?

Definitely no. It’s a big No. Juicers are not meant to add water while juicing. If you intentionally want to dilute the juice and wanted to reduce the actual taste and texture of juice then only add water. Otherwise, no need to add water to a juicer.

In Which Cases We Can Add Water To The Juicer?

  • To increase the volume:

If you want to increase the volume of the juice. There are some situations like parties or sudden guest appearances in which you probably need to add water to the juicer or the juice to increase its quantity. It has nothing to do with nutritional values. But adding water to juice would distribute its nutritional values. Suppose if in 4 glasses of juice you add 2 glasses of water then the nutritional values of 4 glasses would be distributed in 6 glasses.

  • To minimize thickness:

The second situation would be if your juice is too thick to drink. If you made any of the juices like orange, carrot, celery or any fruit and vegetable juice and it is too thick or not according to your level of thickness then you can also add water to your juicer or juice to make it drinkable according to your tastes.

  • To overcome the strong taste:

The third situation would be if your juice is too strong in taste like ginger juice, bitter guard juice etc. In this case, also you can add water to your juicer or juice to minimize the juice’s bitterness or strong taste.

Hope your all the confusion about “Do juicer need water?” has been cleared now. I have tried to cover and clear all the confusion and related questions.

Happy Juicing!!!
