Single Vs Twin Gear Juicer

Last updated on

Are there big differences between a SINGLE and a TWIN gear juicer?  You decide.


The Differences Are Minimal Yet Vast

Both the single-gear and twin-gear juicers basically operate on the same concept, that is by crushing and grinding the produce fed into them. This method of extracting juice is highly effective in preserving the precious nutrients and enzymes of the fruits/vegetables. Yet, at the same time, able to minimize the pesticides and chemicals from the juice.

These two factors alone are good enough reasons for you to switch from a centrifugal to either a single or twin-gear juicer. The tremendous benefits from this method of juice extraction far outweigh the small price you pay for these juicers.

After drinking juices juiced from using either a single or twin-gear juicer, you will never turn back to drinking juices juiced from a centrifugal juicer. And of course, if you have never drank the juices from gear juicers, you would never know what you are missing!


The Vast Differences …

To a beginner, there might be no difference between the juicers (except the built). The vast differences can only be felt or detected when you are familiar with drinking juices from gear juicers. So, if you are a beginner, don’t worry about the differences.

If you own and have been juicing with a single-gear juicer, the twin-gear juicer will be the ultimate juicer that you want to aim for, it’s premier. The twin-gear juicer produces superior juices that are exceptionally beneficial for people who are looking for the ultimate healing tool.

This is possible because of the technology breakthrough concerted on this equipment. The quality of the juice is simply outstanding and can only be appreciated by those who know and understand the concept of the effect of the built-in magnetic field and far-infrared technology.



  • Mid-range among all juicers, reasonably affordable at about US$200-US$400.
  • High-end range among all juicers, luxury at about US$400 to US$1,000+.
  • VERTICAL single gear juicers spin at ~40 RPM due to it’s bigger diameter gear (e.g. Omega VRT350HD or the Hurom Slow Juicer).  HORIZONTAL single gear juicers (e.g. Omega J8000 series) spin at ~80 RPM due to it’s smaller diameter gear.
  • Has two (twin) gears that are smaller in diameter compared to the single-gear juicers, spinning at ~160 RPM.  This does not mean that it spins faster, just that the diameter of the gear is smaller, so it seems as if it’s spinning faster to complete the rounds. It’s like a tall person and and a short person walking the same distance from point A to point B.  Both are walking the same distance just that the short person takes more steps to reach the destination.
  • Uses a masticating method of chewing or grinding to a pulp. A single-gear that is ‘worm-like’ drives the produce and squeezes them through a stainless steel screen. This action does not disrupt the cellular structure of the fruits and vegetables, therefore, preserving the precious enzymes and nutrients that are closest to its natural form.
  • Uses a triturating method of rubbing, crushing, grinding or pounding the produce finely to extract the juice. This action tears open the produce’s cell membranes and releases its deep-seated nutrients and enzymes. It also breaks up more of the phytochemical from the produce, resulting in a richer-colored juice which is also richer in its nutrients and minerals.
  • Feeding the HORIZONTAL gear juicer needs a little help with the food pusher.  With the VERTICAL gear juicer, produce is “self-fed” making juicing almost effortless.
  • The twin gears are built with only a hairline gap of about 0.1mm apart. Feeding the juicer requires a little more patience.
  • High juice quality with preserved enzymes and nutrients.
  • Superior juice quality with preserved enzymes and nutrients due to its breakthrough technology using far-infrared waves and magnetic fields that enhance the juice structure, making it more stable to last longer and bio-available.
  • Produces some foam in juice.
  • Produces some foam in juice.
  • Manufacturer claims that the extracted juices can keep in the fridge for up to 24 hours when stored properly in air-tight jars away from air and light.
  • Manufacturer claims that the extracted juices can keep in the fridge for up to 36 hours when stored properly in air-tight jars away from air and light.
  • Effective for juicing leafy greens and grass (wheat or barley grass).
  • Awesome for juicing leafy greens and grass, producing “sweet” tasting green juices.
  • Produces dry pulp with high juice yield.
  • Produces even dryer pulp with even higher juice yield compared to single-gear juicers.
  • Very few parts and very easy to clean. Washing-up takes less than 2 minutes. Time-saving.
  • Some models come with many “complicated” parts although you may not need them all for your daily juicing.  Washing up may take a little more effort but the superior quality juices and the ability to store them for longer justify this extra effort.
  • Not only help minimize chemicals and pesticides in the juice, a twin-gear juicer often can even separate heavy metals with its bio-magnetic technology.
  • Some models have 6 to 9 functions built into 1.
  • Some models have 6 to 9 functions built into 1.
  •  Operation is almost silent.
  • Operation is almost silent.
  • Warranty period on the motor up to 20 years.
  • Warranty period on the motor range from one to 10 years only.
