As a Juicer is a huge investment financially and healthwise. And If we settle for the low-quality juicers that have a short lifespan, it might turn into a big hassle and huge waste of your money. SO let’s know how long a juicer will last.
This Is How Long Juicers Last,
Good quality juicers will last 10 years or more when cared for properly. The juicer-screen or juicer blades are typically the first thing to break or become dull and the juicer-motor is the least problematic part of any electric juicer.
Found Some juicers that last around 20 years or more, and still be fully functional.
But you should know, The exact juicer-lifespan is heavily influenced by the brand, juicer-type, frequency of use, and how well juicers are taken care of ( or how well the juicer manual was followed).
Things that Break On a Juicer?
Normally, a juicer screen is the first thing to break on a slow juicer. Besides screen there maybe usual wear and tear of juicer for regular use. juicer Motor is the less troubling part of a juicer.
And more the juicer screen area, the more the need of taken care to keep in better shape. that’s why vertical slow juicers tend to last less long than slow-vertical-juicers.
Within the slow juicers: horizontal-juicers have less complexity and less juicing-screen area than that of vertical-juicers. Vertical slow juicers are prone to get in trouble than horizontal slow juicers.
For a centrifugal juicer, the juicer blade becomes dull easily. and besides that juicer screen also has wear and tear after long use. the dull Shrader or juicing strainer basket also means less efficient juicing sessions.
How long do juicer blades last?
Normally centrifugal juicer has blades. With some exceptions, very few masticating juicers also have blades (for example champion juicer- auger have blades on it).
Centrifugal Juicer blades become dull within around 6 months to 1 year for regular daily use. Dull juicer blades, Shrader, and dull baskets both have a big effect on juicer performance (juice yield). but you will able to use it to some extent or be able to make juice.
if you find your juicer-pulp is wet and you have to push veggies or fruits harder than normal into your juicer, then you might be sure that your juicer is wasting juice and have dull juicing blades or a dull shrader or dull juicing-filter -basket (juicing screen).

you will able to get a reduced price but no warranty, or customer support.
for instance, the Used omegaj8006 juicer price starts from around USD 150 these days (which is half of the normal price on Amazon ) but comes with no warranty or so.
My advice will be to buy a new juicer with good warrenty, at least 10 or more.
Why Long Warranty In A Juicer Is Important
Purchasing a juicer with a long warranty is important because it gives you extra protection and peace of mind assurance especially when the return policy expires and needs repair or replacement

Why is cleaning a Juicer Important to increase its life span
Cleaning a juicer is important because it’s a huge part of the maintenance process. Also keeping it clean at all times maintains your juicer’s performance at its highest level. A juicer-filters and other parts should be thoroughly cleaned to remove all the bits and pieces.
Failure to do that can cause juice pulp and other small components to clog and jam your machine. Not only does this compromise the performance of your juicer but it can cause your juicer to breakdown permanently.
why Avoid low-cost juicers or unknown brands
You should avoid looking for the cheapest price when you are looking for a juicer. you may end up spending more in long run.
As lowest-cost juicers have a short lifespan and short warranty. They tend to breakdown quickly as they are not sturdy and durable. and You may face lots of hassle and cost of fixing or buying a new juicer.
How to increase the juicer life span
- You shouldn’t just throw in whole fruits and vegetables into a juicer without first preparing the ingredients. Even though a juicer might have a large chute you still have to prep if you want to produce fresh/tasty juice.
- Don’t juice fruits with their seeds and hard pits. Not only can this damage your juicer but it can also affect the taste of your juice or cause health problems as some of the seeds and pits contain chemical toxins.
- Avoid juicing dry ingredients that have low water content like coconut and sugar cane. Not only will that damage your juicer but you will also not get much juice from this produce.
- Don’t let your juice just sit around as it is unpasteurized and preservative-free. To derive all the health benefits from your products it’s best to drink right away.
- Don’t store juice in a juicer. After the juicing process is done remove the juice from the juicer and pour it into a jug and if there is any leftover juice store it in the fridge.
- Don’t use a spoon, knife, or any other item to push down ingredients into a juicer. Not only can this destroy the juicer but you may injure yourself during the process. You should use a plunger at all times.
- Do not wait up to clean your juicer. You should clean it as soon as possible after you are done juicing. If you can’t clean it there and there, it’s better to rinse it and wash it later than just to leave it as it is.
In a Nutshell
As mentioned above, juicers’ lifespan depends on the brand, quality, and price. However, regardless of the type of juicer you own, if you want to maximize its lifespan, it is highly recommended that you keep it clean and perform the necessary routine maintenance.
If your juicer is from a reputable brand, then you may buy spare parts from the market or the brand website. . but if you have trouble with your juicer motor .. it may cost more to fix than buying a new juicer.
If you want to enjoy the full benefits of a juicer for a long time, I highly recommend that you buy a durable and solid juicer. Happy juicing!
