This method generates basically no heat (AKA a cold-press juicer), so you don't have to worry about destroying any nutrients. There are no blades, so instead of chopping things up the juicer will press the juice out of the fruits and vegetables.
Can make butters, not milk, and sorbets • Ultra-low speed pulls out healthy enzymes • Easy to assemble Expensive • Clunky and takes up a lot of counter space You won't find a better slow juicer than this Omega, which goes past juice to make sorbet or peanut butter. ), grind coffee beans, make pasta, frozen desserts, baby food... to be honest, we're not sure there's much it can't do.
While this juicer takes longer than the centrifugal force competitor, the pulp comes out very, very dry, and there are no chunks left unnoticed! Also, I love the handle at the top of the machine, it is lightweight and easy to pick up and maneuver.
Easy to clean • 13,000 RPM lets nothing by • Die-cast stainless steel is chic as hell • Large-capacity jug and pulp container Expensive • Heavy • Gets stuck on leafy veggies if not chopped first Called “Elite” for a reason, this juicer has an 1,000 watt motor and fast RPM to justify its price. Though it comes with a heftier price tag than the JE98XL, the 800JEXL is called “elite” for a reason.
Seville endearingly refers to this model as the “Rolls-Royce” of juicers, with its powerful 1000-watt motor and heavy grade die-cast metal body. This model's “fast” speed setting beats the JE98XL at a lightning-fast 13,000 RPM, shaving time off the process.
Amazon user BeachBaby57 writes: “I absolutely love this juicer, it is so fast to juice and simple clean up too. I line the pulp container with a plastic produce bag and put my glass directly under the spout, so I have two fewer parts to clean.
Honestly, I can't think of anything about this juicer that I would change...maybe it would be helpful if they included a juicing recipe book! Comes in a few colors • Single masticating auger and record-low 47 RPM • 10-year warranty • Very quiet • Tough on highly fibrous ingredients Heavy • Bad with whole fruits • Pulp container jams and needs to be cleaned often From mean green juice to coconut milk or salsa, this extra-slow juicer will be your new best friend.
The gist: The whole “DIY healthy eating thing” is a great, but all the appliances required sure make for a lot of clutter. We love a good 2-in-1 machine, and the Tribes Slow star Vertical Slow Juicer can get you cold-pressed juice plus sorbets, salsas, and so much more with a handy mixer attachment.
It is very powerful and produces the most juice compared to the other models in its class. It has a dual blade auger that just crushes large carrots, beats, and it also juices leafy greens like spinach and kale with ease. It comes with an additional attachment to make fresh fruit sorbets and almond and other nut butters.
Stylish design and pastel colors • Safety features including no blades • Effective on dry pulp Accessories have to be hand-washed • Challenging assembling/reassemble Beauty truly meets brawn with Huron's retro juicer that rocks a lowest-of-the-low RPM. Add a splash of pastel with the Huron Slow Juicer, complete with a super-slow auger and a ton of safety features.
The retro style is clearly the main selling point, so no one will blame you if you want to leave this sitting on your counter as decor. If it is sitting out, you'll appreciate safety features like sensors that only allow it to operate if the chamber is 100% assembled.
Be sure to cut everything into small chunks to avoid clogging but if it does stop there is a reverse switch that fixes the problem quickly and efficiently. I love this and have recommended it to friends who are tired of pay $7+ a day for juices in LA.
Not sure if it was because the kale and Swiss chard were straight from the garden to the juicer but I definitely did see juice coming out.” Two speeds and mighty motor provide price extraction • Dishwasher safe • Comes with a 40-ounce pitcher • Little to no clean-up Vibrates too much • Hard veggies need to be chopped A no fuss, no muss solution for juicing fruits and veggies, as long as you can deal with the rumbling.
It cranks out 850 watts of power and has a 3-inch-wide chute that you can fit whole foods into (for example, a whole apple). Stubborn veggies like celery or carrots may need to be chopped for an easier process, but that happens with even the most expensive machines.
Amazon user Cynthia Maples Davis writes: “I am in love with this juicer. The little pour spout, that the juice comes down, can be flipped up so the last few drops don't fall on the counter top.
Specifically designed for stubborn veggies • Moderately priced • Slow-push process preserves nutrients • Smaller and lighter than it looks Time intensive • Can't juice fruits This hand-crank juicer is one of the best ways to turn leafy greens like kale, spinach, and wheatgrass into nutritious juice. The gist: Squeezing leafy greens takes a special amount of care. The Lexer GP27 is the way to *manually* do just that.
As the folks at The Healthy Juicer say, this thing was designed to be “simple, mobile, versatile, and easy to clean.” To use, just put a juice cup under the spout, place your greens into the chute, and start churning.
I love everything about this juicer (except maybe the extra time it takes to make all that juice from the leafy greens, but you know what, it's time well spent because it's SO relaxing watching healthy juice being created as you spin the lever). Unlike the bigger, heavier juicers, these smaller pieces are so easy to wash and manage and store, light and small it all fits in a drawer and doesn't take up half of my cabinet space.
Containers, then I freeze the spinach fiber in tablespoon sizes and throw in my smoothies (especially good with bananas) or in my soups/stocks/eggs. From a very trusted name • Modern design with stainless steel reamer • Straightforward process and no extra parts Expensive for a manual juicer • Fruits only If you crave OJ from summer carnivals all year round, this hand-operated juicer will be refreshing.
Shoving kale or apples in here is just going to get you a clogged machine and chunky results. Switching to the spin or centrifugal cycle does a decent job of pulling juice from the pulp, but seeds seem to sneak through and it's not great with peels.
Standout features: Auto-reversing universal juicer cone Adjustable reamer with three pulp control settings Final spin feature is activated by the lid and does one last squeeze on the remaining pulp Snap-out spout to prevent dripping We have used it quite a bit since we bought it, and if you do the math on how much you save on fresh squeezed orange juice, this juicer is a no-brainer.
This machine requires moderate amounts of pressure to use it, so it may not be suitable for those who have arthritis in their hands.” Adjustable pulp control • No learning curve • Convenient measuring marks on container • Container doubles as a pitcher Does require manual effort • Limited to citrus fruits All this mini (albeit slightly limiting) electric juicer takes is a slight push of your hand.
Unique rivets on the top of the feed tube help position and guide ingredients into the juicer well. The juicer ’s dial is easy to use with helpful speed descriptors (slow for soft fruit, high for hard vegetables).
The tool wipes away pulp from the inside, outside, and bottom of the cutting blade in one swipe, while protecting your fingers. While the juicer was a little loud in our Lab tests, you can’t go wrong for the price, speed, and results.
In addition to the new strainers and improved interior, this slow juicer comes with a double-sided cleaning brush that gets into all the crevices. In our Lab's testing, this model made some freshest-tasting green juice and we loved that you can control the amount of pulp.
It can accommodate large fruits and veggies in its larger section, and skinny, leafy greens in its smaller one. It also has a large chute which encourages ingredients to feed themselves into the auger with little help from the pusher.
Our favorite part is it comes in pink, mint or white, perfect for adding a pop of color to your day. The HP Slow Juicer was easy to assemble and use, and produced good juice.
Juice Fountain EliteBrevilleamazon.Libreville's top-notch JuiceFountain Elite powered through sturdy fruits and vegetables faster (and quieter!) In addition to being less work than other juicers on the market, the Huron's automatic operation makes it harder to clog or overfeed the hopper.
But because it's pricey, this Luke model's an investment we would recommend for true juice enthusiasts.

This content is created and maintained by a third party, and imported onto this page to help users provide their email addresses. Whether you're trying to get more nutrients into your diet or like to start your day with a big glass of greens, a good juicer makes it easy to whip up fresh-pressed produce in minutes.
In the Good Housekeeping Kitchen Lab, we tested the top juicers that will best help you kick off your day strong. When we test juicers, we juice carrots, which are hard and can sometimes taste bitter; kale, a popular leafy vegetable that's hard to juice and often jams in the machine; and apples, pulpy with a large diameter and oxidize quickly.
Brands like Seville and Kings have found a work-around and recently introduced new, wide-mouth slow juicers, which allows fruits like large apples to simply be quartered instead of chunked into 1-inch pieces. Whole ingredients are typically dropped into the wider feed tube and pulverized at a very high speed.
For example, in our leafy greens test, 100 grams of kale juiced in as quickly as 7 seconds, while it took upwards of 1 minute in the slow juicers. The juice from centrifugal juicers tends to come out a little foamy but most come with lidded pitchers and built-in strainers so you’ll never taste the difference.
The strainers are prone to build up, which could translate into a slower and messier juicing process for you. Please take our 3-minute survey, and give us feedback about your visit today.
Nowadays, you can find some truly incredible budget juicers that come with countless interesting features. Most people don’t have the time to prepare meals containing a variety of fruits and vegetables.
This type of juicer works by slicing produce thanks to a blade that rotates at very high speeds. The advantages of centrifugal juicers is that they’re easy to use, even easier to clean, and are incredibly affordable.
The most notable downside to centrifugal juicers is that the high speeds at which they operate heat certain enzymes and destroys them. In case you want to know more about this, we have a whole article dedicated to how centrifugal juicers kill nutrients.
Of course, just because nutrients in the juice get destroyed doesn’t mean you should avoid buying this type of juicer. Note that you’ll still get incredibly healthy drinks when you combine fruits and vegetables.
It’s worth noting that some centrifugal juicers can also be noisy due to their powerful motors. While slow juicers are extremely efficient when it comes to extracting juice from raw products without leaving pulp in your glass, most centrifugal models aren’t able to do this.
It features a powerful 700-watt motor that spins the titanium reinforced cutting disc at 14,000 rotations per minute. The powerful motor allows you to extract juice from a wide variety of ingredients, including leafy greens.
Nevertheless, it’s suggested that you combine leafy greens with solid ingredients like apples to ensure the machine extracts the juice properly. The titanium reinforced cutting disc along with the stainless steel micro mesh filter basket ensures maximum juice yield.
While you won’t have to worry about pulp in your juice, expect a bit of foam in the final product. Since this is a centrifugal juicer, it’s recommended that you drink the juice as soon as it gets extracted from the fruits and veggies of your choice.
It is very easy to use this product and you won’t have to worry about spending a lot of time trying to assemble it or figure out which settings to use. Because of this, it’s recommended that you keep a grip on the top of the chute to avoid spending time on unnecessary cleanups.
Seeing as how great the Seville BJE200XL is, you’ll surely be pleasantly surprised when you find out the price of this juicer. It’s a compact juicer that won’t take up a lot of space on your kitchen countertop.
The Seville BJE200XL has a unique extraction system that consists of a titanium-reinforced cutting disc and a stainless steel micro mesh filter basket. You’ll be able to extract juice, disassemble the juicer, and wash all the parts in a matter of minutes.
Since this product has a 3-inch wide feeding tube, you basically won’t have to spend any time chopping your ingredients into small pieces. The Mueller Austria Ultra 1100W juicer features a modern stainless-steel exterior with a silver finish that looks amazing on any kitchen countertop.
The manufacturers note that you can make a 16-ounce cup of juice in eight seconds with the Mueller Austria Ultra 1100W. Although you’ll be able to make juice quickly, note that you can’t use this product continuously for a long time.
On the other hand, the high-speed setting is ideal for juicing tougher ingredients like leafy greens, beets, and carrots. In order to ensure accidents don’t happen, the manufacturer decided to include a safety-locking arm that has to be placed in a full upright position.
It will be easy for you to make juice since the Mueller Austria Ultra 1100W features a 3-inch wide feed chute. It’s worth mentioning that all the components that make up the Mueller Austria Ultra 1100W are BPA-free, which means that your juice won’t get contaminated.
This juicer comes with a powerful 1100-watt, dual speed motor that allows you to make a glass of juice in just several seconds. You need to take a two-minute break from juicing for every minute the Mueller Austria Ultra 1100W is running.
Overall Opinion: The whole point of a centrifugal juicer is to enable you to make juice quickly. This is a powerful juicer that is equipped with an 800-watt motor that can easily rip through any type of fruits and vegetables you put inside it.
Although this is a common characteristic of centrifugal juicers, the Hamilton Beach 67601A is slightly louder than a lot of models. While it is noisy, the powerful motor does an excellent job of extracting every last drop of juice even from the toughest fruits and veggies.
Since it’s not that good of an idea to store juice made by using a centrifugal juicer, you’ll appreciate the fact that you can fill one glass at a time with the Hamilton Beach 67601A. This machine produces excellent quality juice compared to most of the other products in its price range.
It’s worth noting that you won’t receive a juice pitcher with this product, which is fine seeing as how affordable it is. It features a 3-inch wide feed chute that allows you to put whole fruits and veggies into the juicer.
The manufacturers note that the removable plastic parts of the Hamilton Beach 67601A are dishwasher safe. However, it’s a good idea to wash them by hand to prevent substances from sticking to the plastic.
Compared to most other products in its price range, the Hamilton Beach 67601A produces juice of outstanding quality. This machine comes with a 1.1 horsepower motor that will extract juice from fruits and vegetables faster than you can put them in the juicer.
The leftover pulp will most likely be dry no matter what ingredients you use, which means that this product does an excellent job of extracting juice. The feeding chute is 65 millimeters wide (a bit more than 2.5 inches), which is smaller than the Mueller Austria Ultra 1100W.
The Joe rid juicer comes with an anti-drip spout designed to prevent the juice from dripping when it isn’t in the container. On the other hand, the high-speed setting is perfect for leafy greens, carrots, celery, and other hard ingredients.
In fact, the noise level from the motor is lower than 60 decibels, which means that you’ll be able to make juice early in the morning without worrying about waking up your family members. Note that it has a 3-inch feed chute that is wide enough for whole lemons, cucumbers, beets, oranges, apples, and similar ingredients.
There is no denying that the Cook GS-336 offers a lot of cool features for the low price it sells for. The manufacturer also doesn’t mention whether you can clean the removable parts in your dishwasher, which means that you should wash them by hand.
If you want a very similar product to the Cook GS-336 that actually comes with a safety lock mechanism, then you should consider getting the Begotten DB-001. The Begotten DB-001 has a 3-inch wide feed chute, in which you can easily put an entire pear or orange.
The safety locking arm is designed to prevent juice spilling and accidents since it ensures the cover is on tight when the juicer is in use. In fact, the electric motor will automatically turn off when the temperature exceeds 105 degrees.
In the event that you use it for several minutes without a break and the motor automatically turns off, it might take up to an hour before you can use it again. Keep in mind however that the 400-watt motor isn’t as powerful as the previously introduced juicers on this list.
We’ve already mentioned that you will have a healthy juice in your glass no matter what type of juicer you use. Instead of having a blade that slices your ingredients, a slow juicer works by applying pressure.
It is especially recommended that you get a masticating juicer if you plan on using ingredients like spinach, broccoli, kale, and other leafy greens. Since they operate at lower speeds, you won’t have to worry about temperature rising and destroying certain enzymes.
This means that the juice you make by using a masticating juicer will retain most of the ingredients’ nutrients. Aside from having a higher nutrient count, less oxidization means that you’ll be able to store juice for a longer time period.
In case you’ve previously owned a centrifugal juicer and now decide to get a slow one, the first thing you’ll notice is the difference in the taste of the juice. Since they run at lower speeds, you’ll barely hear masticating juicers when they are in use.
For instance, most masticating juicers will clog if you try placing large chunks of food inside them due to their small feed chutes. This means that you’ll have to chop every ingredient into small pieces before putting them in the juicer.
The first difference you’ll notice about this product compared to the centrifugal juicers on this list is how much space it takes up. Ideally, you should pick one spot in your kitchen and stick to it, since this juicer isn’t exactly light.
Consider the Mueller Austria Ultra Juicer if you’re on a budget since it costs less than a hundred dollars. The patented mechanism of the Mueller Austria Ultra Juicer spins at 60 rotations per minute.
On top of that, the slow juicing process means there is less foam and pulp in the end product. It’s worth noting that the juicer won’t run unless all the parts are correctly installed and attached.
This feature means that your prep time will be reduced since you won’t have to chop your ingredients into small pieces. Using this juicer will minimize oxidation and help retain the vitamins and minerals in the juice.
Overall Opinion: The Mueller Austria Slow Juicer looks very stylish and is an excellent product, but it will take up a lot of space. Nevertheless, the prep and cleaning time will be considerably longer compared to any of the centrifugal juicers on this list.
The AI COK slow juicer comes equipped with a 150-watt motor that spins the auger at 80 rotations per minute. If you’ve never owned a masticating juicer before, this may be the perfect product to start with since it is very easy to assemble, use, and clean.
All the removable parts can be cleaned in a dishwasher, as long as you place them on the top rack. In case you want to store juice, you’ll be glad to hear that the AI COK slow juicer has an auto pulp-ejection system.
But if this doesn’t represent an issue for you, then it’s definitely a good idea to consider getting the AI COK slow juicer. Note that it barely produces any noise (less than 60 decibels), even though it is a powerful appliance that can handle nearly any ingredient.
Its feed chute is considerably smaller than the Mueller Austria Ultra juicer since it is only 1.5 inches wide. In the event that the juicer gets clogged, simply press the reverse button to unclog it.
When you make juice using this appliance, you’ll be able to store it in your fridge for up to 72 hours without worrying about the loss of nutrients. Overall Opinion: If you want to make a lot of juice, you won’t need to take breaks to clean this product since it comes with an auto pulp-ejection system.
It features a notable handle design that will help you easily pour the extracted juice into your cup. This design also makes the cleaning process easier since you can just put it under running water.
Another great design feature is the U shape pulp outlet that reduces the possibility of residue getting stuck to the juicer. This means that you’ll have to chop your ingredients into tiny pieces in order to extract juice from them.
The 200-watt motor spins the auger at 40-65 rotations per minute, which is excellent for ensuring vital nutrients are retained. The manufacturer notes that you can store fresh juice made using the Hobos Vertical Slow Juicer for up to 48 hours without any loss of nutritional value.
In case this appliance gets clogged, you can simply press the “reverse” button to get it up and running again. The Hobos Vertical Slow Juicer comes with a great U shape pulp outlet.
The feed chute is only 1-inch wide, which means that you’ll need to chop your ingredients into very small pieces if you want to extract juice from them. The notable handle design of this product makes it very portable and reduces cleaning time.
However, you should get this product only if you’re prepared to chop your ingredients into tiny pieces whenever you want to make juice since it has a very small feed chute. What this slow speed means is that the amount of oxidation and heat that enters the juice will be minimal.
Apart from its impressive slow speed, another great thing about the Klansman Sweetheart Juicer is its price. There is no need to worry about making a mess when you’re using this juicer seeing as how it won’t start unless the feeder is mounted on it and the safety lock is engaged.
In fact, you can even place the detachable parts on the top rack of your dishwasher if you don’t want to wash them by hand. Compared to most other masticating juicers, this product won’t take up a lot of space on your kitchen countertop.
Since this juicer operates at a very low speed, it won’t make a lot of noise. The juice you make using the Klansman Sweetheart Juicer will be pulp-free thanks to the product’s fine filter.
Keep in mind that since it operates at a very slow speed, it can be quite time-consuming to make juice using the Klansman Sweetheart Juicer. The Klansman Sweetheart Juicer spins at only 32 rotations per minute, thus helping retain vitamins and minerals.
Overall Opinion: You should definitely consider getting the Klansman Sweetheart Juicer if you care about the nutritional quality of your juice. Apart from its incredibly slow speed, this juicer is notable for being one of the most affordable quality masticating models on the market.
On the other hand, a cheap centrifugal juicer is the better option if you want to make juice quickly. While all the products in this article extract juice well and are reliable, expensive models have more impressive features.
Instead of electricity, manual juicers typically use a crank or lever that requires physical exertion to move. Because there is no electric motor, a manual juicer is a silent device that you can use in the dead of night without waking up your family.
Manual juicers are easy to travel with, ensuring that you continue to drink healthy while on vacation. You can turn everything from kale and spinach to wheatgrass and collard greens into a refreshing juice with the Lexer GP27 Original Healthy Juicer.
Just put the fruits and vegetables in, turn the crank and you’ll experience delicious juice in only a few minutes. The Lexer GP27 Original Healthy Juicer also takes only 30 seconds to clean up once you become familiar with the inner workings of the device.
The die-cast aluminum body gives you all the strength of a stainless steel frame but with half the weight, which makes the E4U Fresh Citrus Juicer a perfect travel companion. The design of the E4U Fresh Citrus Juicer allows you to extract just the juice without any rind, seeds or pulp infiltrating your glass.
If you’re looking for a citrus juicer with a bit more stability, then you’ll want to try the Switch Pro Juice Press Extractor. The long handle gives you extra stability, allowing you to squeeze out every last drop of juice from any pomegranate, grapefruit or lemon.
The suction base leaves no lasting residue or damage, making this juicer safe to use on even vintage furniture. The OVS Citrus Juicer can fill an entire glass with juice in under a minute thanks to the long handle which lets you get a tighter squeeze.
The ergonomic design of the OVS Citrus Juicer will keep your hand and wrist feeling great no matter how many cups of juice you need to make. This manual juicer features a long handle and a powerful pull-down mechanism to ensure that you’re getting the maximum amount of juice from anything you put into it.
The high-quality materials used in the Kitchen Kraft Large Manual Commercial Juicer will ensure that it lasts for decades. Once attached, you’ll use the flexible head on the top to manually scoop and scrape out the juice from any fruit, just like your grandmother used to do.
The Jupiter Large Commercial Juice Press is one of the more expensive manual juicers on the market today; however, with its high price tag comes high-quality materials and features. This manual juicer is a combination of cast iron and 18/10 stainless steel, meaning that it’s both durable and up to the task of juicing any fruit or vegetable.
The extra-long handle gives you extra stability for tougher fruits and vegetables while the thick base ensures the juicer won’t topple over while in use. The rubberized handle can withstand 2,300 PSI, making this juicer a perfect fit for bodybuilders and other muscled athletes.
In addition to fruits and vegetables like apples, oranges and grapefruit, the Lean Healthy Juicer can juice wheatgrass, spinach and lettuce. The stainless steel construction both looks good and helps make the Lean Healthy Juicer a tool that will last for years.
These slow masticating juicers promise to turn fruits and vegetables into delicious drinks while retaining all the flavor, vitamins, and nutrients by minimizing heat buildup and oxidation. When users buy our independently chosen editorial recommendations, we may earn commissions to help fund the Wiki.
A relatively quiet choice, it won't bother customers while in operation, and the smooth, foam-free product should please even the pickiest of palates. It's made in the USA with high quality components and conforms to a range of industry standards for your safety and peace of mind.
The result is less heat, which translates to less oxidation of the vitamins and nutrients in your foods, so you get a healthier beverage. Because of that, this update was all about eliminating discontinued models or those that haven't proven themselves to continue operating reliably over time.
While we have still kept the on the list since it doesn't seem to suffer from this same issue, we will be keeping a close eye on it and update our readers if anything changes. Two other somewhat diminutive options that were added during this update were the and, however each of these has a drawback that makes us recommend the Focus first.
Anyone with even passing familiarity with juicers won't be surprised to see some names on this list, including Kings, Huron, and Seville. We've also opted to remove a couple of lesser-known choices because of both long-term quality and availability issues, including the Pick Cold Press.
Enter the masticating juicer, with its ribbed auger and simple but effective pulp ejection system. The other fold of the problem is that we have a tendency to over like an industrial vacuum cleaner, allowing nowhere near enough time to truly extract the nutrient potential of our fruits and vegetables.
Enter the masticating juicer, with its ribbed auger and simple but effective pulp ejection system. This shape and design creates an environment in which food material gets chewed up and pushed outward toward the front of the juicer while the juice falls down toward a catch basin of your choosing.
Other designs you'll see combine a vertical auger system with a built-in catch basket, which is more convenient at the outset, but does make the unit a little harder to clean once you're done juicing. Still, if you take a little time to think about the basic truths and common sense knowledge revolving around food, you can get a good idea of what each method offers the consumer.
This is called oxidation, and it kills a lot of the live enzymes you want to consume to maximize your health. Now, if you don't cut that apple at all, but you leave it on the counter for, say, two months, it'll still shrivel up and die, just a lot more slowly.
So, for the maximum enzyme content and, arguably, the highest nutrient count, you're going to want a masticating juicer. Early juicers were press-based, using direct force to crush the food in a machine rather like a vice, which was messy at first, but refined over the years.
But as far as any record of human beings using their to separate the liquid elements of their food from the solid, well, that has to go back to the invention of wine. There's even a history of mastication with the human mouth, like in Brazil, where is traditionally brewed only after its roots have been chewed and spit out by the women of a tribe.
Early juicers were press-based, using direct force to crush the food in a machine rather like a vice, which was messy at first, but refined over the years. Nowadays, there's no shortage of brands and styles for your juicing preference, but cold-pressed mastication is the highest combination of the healthiest techniques and most powerful technology.

If you believe that your product should be included in this review, you may contact us, but we cannot guarantee a response, even if you send us flowers. As it is a slow-masticating juicer, the auger on this unit's motor spins at 80 RPM (revolutions per minute) to preserve the vitamins, enzymes, minerals, and nutrients naturally found in fresh fruits and veggies.
The motor on this juicer also runs quietly at 60 decibels, making it a great pick for small households where kitchen noise carries. This top-rated cold press juicer from Tribes is a worthy investment due to its high-quality, great-tasting juice yield.
Using a slow-extraction method of 110 RPM, this juicer preserves the living enzymes and vitamins naturally found in fresh fruit and vegetables, and it prevents harmful oxidation. This complete, slow-masticating juicer cuts, slices, and crushes fruits and veggies for maximum juice yield and nutrition.
With almost unanimously glowing reviews from nutritionists and juice devotees alike, it's easy to see why this is a quality investment for a healthy lifestyle. The HZ's Alpha technology features optimized juicing and easier cleaning, and it works wonders on fruits, veggies, leafy greens, nuts, and soybeans to create nutritious cold-pressed juices, smoothies, nut milks, tofu, and more.
With an ultra quiet motor, patented Slow Squeeze Technology that mimics the motion of hand-squeezed juice, a control lever, and a fine and coarse strainer for pulp control, this is one of the most intuitive and user-friendly cold press juicer models on the market. This juicer's circular, wide-feed tube allows whole fruits and veggies to be juiced with or without the rind, so you'll end up saving a ton of time on prep.
Using a low-speed extraction method of 80 RPM, the slow-masticating motor on this top-rated cold press juicer creates juice without any foaming, clogging, or heat buildup. Users love its quiet motor, as well as how compact the unit is once it's broken down into separate parts for storage.
Outside its primary function as a cold press juicer, this versatile unit can also be used to whip soy milk, grind coffee and spices, and turn nuts into butter. Reviewers love the intuitive and simple design of this juicer, plus the fact that it's incredibly easy to clean (it's dishwasher-safe, too).
Just hold your halved fruit on the reamer and the powerful 80-watt motor kicks in, delivering juice directly to your glass through a drip-free spout. This content is created and maintained by a third party, and imported onto this page to help users provide their email addresses.
If you're serious about juicing (or are just tired of spending loads of money on the bottled stuff), a cold press juicer is a kitchen appliance that's well worth the investment. Cold press juicers grind fruits and veggies using a slow mastication method without the use of added heat, resulting in better preservation of the vitamins and nutrients that naturally exist in fresh produce.
Then there are manual juicers, which come in many more guises, from the simple reamer to the clamp-like squeezer that chefs seem partial to these days. It yields an impressive amount of juice (47.5%, our second highest performer), requires very little exertion, isn’t too noisy, and costs less than $20.
The carafe is marked with ounce and milliliter measures, which come in handy when juicing for a recipe. It’s machine-washable, but since the pitcher separates easily from the base and the sieve and reamer come apart, it’s just as easy to rinse off under the faucet.
If you’re whipping up margaritas, a pitcher of grapefruit juice for brunch, or need to squeeze lemons in quantity, this juicer will lighten the load. Its footprint isn’t too big, but with its protruding lever, it takes up quite a bit of vertical space.
It’s especially convenient if you have space for it to live on your counter, as it’s fairly cumbersome to take in and out of the cupboard. The $6 reamer is made from solid beech wood and is designed to be perfectly intuitive.
Hold its ergonomic handle in one hand and a citrus half in the other, spear the fruit with the tip of the reamer and twist until the juice runs dry. This is the reamer you want if you need to juice lemons and limes in smaller quantities, like for a marinade or a cocktail, and are looking for a tool that fits in your utensil drawer.
Others, particularly the manual presses, squeezed the rinds, which releases oils and enhances the fragrance of the juice. The electric juicers ranged in noise level from an efficient purr to a loud grind.

All you do is pull down a lever to compress the citrus half, which was all but eviscerated by the powerful electric reamer.
In the manual department, an elegant Italian-made SUR La Table Glass Juicer ($15) reminded us of something our grandmother might have used. The tabletop juicer did great with juicy lemons, effectively separating pulp and seeds from the juice in a well that surrounded the reamer.
We had similar results with the Ox Small Citrus Juicer ($10), which is a measuring cup fitted with a reamer-sieve combo that strained out the pulp and seeds. Like the glass juicer, if you weren’t working with nice, juicy fruit, it was difficult to get the most out of it.
The Ox required major force, and if you don’t have particularly strong arms, using it could get old fast. The design of the Chef N creates more leverage, making it easier to press the fruit even if you’re lacking in muscle, and it offered one of the higher yields of juice in this category, at 38 percent.
But the spent citrus halves from this style of juicer left more pulp behind than the rinds from most of the other models, which felt wasteful. Citrus juicers are incredibly useful, whether you’re making batch cocktails, salad dressing, lemonade or lemon curd.
Not only is a great pick for sensitive skin (it's free from phthalates, fragrance, sulfates, and parabens), but you also get a lot of bang for your buck, says Jackson.

A little citrus juice can transform an entire dish, adding a floral, sunshine-y brightness and acidity that helps all the other flavors pop. That’s why most cooks have at least a couple lemons or limes tucked away in the fridge at all times, and why we’re always looking for the most trouble-free way to juice them.
Reamers have fins that shred the fruit’s tissues so the juice can run free. Made of Beachwood, its tip and ridges are surprisingly sharp and great at tearing into the fruit’s flesh.
You’ll have to use a separate strainer or use your fingers to strain as you pour the juice into your recipe. If you want a handheld juicer that extracts every drop, takes up very little space, is cheap, easy to clean, and won’t break, you can’t go wrong with the Ox wooden reamer.
Most reamers with an attached cup are meant to sit flat on a table while you press down, but they’re hard to hold onto and can slip around. The plastic reamers were sharp enough to tear through the fruit and quickly extract all the juice.
This tool comes with two reamers, a smaller one for lemons and limes, and a larger one for large diameter fruits like oranges and grapefruits. They snap in securely and pop out for easy cleaning, and slits at the bottom do a great job at catching even small seeds.
If you are tight on space, consider the small version for lemons and limes that measures 1/3 cup of juice. This Ox citrus juicer has a built-in measuring cup as its base, making it super-convenient to know exactly how much juice you're squeezing.
Most of the presses I tested performed to the same ability, which is to say they squeezed out most of the juice from the citrus, but usually had some leftover, unlike a reamer. Each model had pros and cons, and the one you choose depends on your personal preferences in terms of specific design features.
It’s ideal for people won’t have a lot of hand strength, like older folks and kids. And it’s made of sturdy plastic and stainless steel, with no hinges or moving parts that could break.
To operate this juicer, you twist the handles together instead of pressing them, which squishes the fruit with less effort, making it ideal for people won’t have a lot of hand strength. The Chef’n Fresh Force features a big, Burley, geared hinge that looks impressive.
Still, we tested it out on a variety of lemons, limes and oranges and found it did indeed do a great job. The bowl has slits in the bottom instead of holes, which helped direct the juice into our measuring cup and kept even tiny seeds out.
Turns out, this reamer is specifically designed for juicing over a tall drinking glass, and for that purpose, it’s actually pretty cool. That lengthy stainless steel tube goes inside the tall glass, and funnels citrus juice neatly into it from the reamer.
The juice travels down the tube and, through a set of holes, enters into your glass while the seeds stay behind. The silicone funnel is soft and rests against the lip of the glass to the reamer keep it steady.
The reamer itself is ridged plastic and very efficient at tearing through the fruit to unleash all the juices. It’s also sized for a wide range of citrus, from small limes to large oranges or grapefruit.
Using this over a short glass or measuring cup isn’t ideal, as the long tube will just get in the way. Also, the reamer can slide out for washing, but the tube doesn’t detach from the funnel, making storage and cleaning problematic.
Even if you ditch the lid and use your hands, the plastic collar on the reamer is too tall, making it difficult to grip the fruit around the sides and often leading to finger scrapes. The Williams-Sonoma Citrus Press is the Chef'n Fresh Force, but with the store-exclusive feature of an attached measuring cup.
The cup snaps on flush to catch every drop, and the bottom is angled so you can rest it on the counter at a comfortable position while you press. This version is also far heavier (about 1/4 pound) than the original Chef’N and the bowl is bitten wider.
It’s definitely a deluxe model, but it comes with a price tag to match ($40 at the time of writing). The “soft touch” handles have a rubberized area to make it a little less slippery when squeezing, and the center of the bowl is raised up in the middle.
And the way the top and bottom fit together with the center bump made it more awkward to squeeze the fruit. The holes at the bottom of both models did a good job straining out big seeds, and the pins in the hinges (the part that tends to break first) is a sturdy 1/2 centimeter thick.
Since the heavy-duty version doesn’t have the lime insert or a special hinge, it fits well in a drawer. It works as well as any other, offers fairly robust construction, fits in a drawer, and there’s no paint to chip.
While I didn't keep these juicers around long enough to test their long-term durability, I paid close attention to the quality of the materials and the way they operated, evaluating whether they were built to last. But, I wanted to look for the best possible press as well, since the reamer can be annoying to use and doesn't keep your hands from getting covered in citrus juice.
