Cold pressed juicers crush and squeeze the juices from fruits and vegetables which means you get the most out of what you are juicing. The nutrients are intact and and the juices stay fresh. I don't find it an issue to have to cut the produce up into smaller pieces and cleaning it is super quick and easy! I normally juice enough for 3 days, make sure they are bottled separately and each 3 day batch takes me about 20-30 mins from cutting everything up, to juicing, to cleaning up at the end.
