There are three types of juicers to choose from spanning over a hundred of models from twenty plus juicer brands. With this many choices it’s very difficult to make a smart buying decision in an instant. Good news is… we’ve already done the research. After reviewing over 70 juicers, we came up with this top pick juicer (in each category) and we give you the top ten juicers in a useful comparison table.
Without further ado, here are the best of the best juicers in the market today.
Hurom HZ – Best Juicer (Overall)
It is a third generation vertical slow juicer with an upgraded juicing chamber. The speed of the spinning brush was decreased to prevent spills. The twin winged auger has been tweaked to add more juice extraction power. And last but not the least, the drum was redesigned to match the boxy feel to it. We really like to touch of metal in the juicing tap. It really ads an extra appeal to its already sleek body.
Moving to the exterior, this is the only juicing machine from Hurom which offers a stainless steel finish. Aside from making it look elegant in any angle, it makes it more durable and more resistant to stains. We’re really impressed with the LED indicators but we’re still waiting for a digital on/off switch.
It’s not your average slow juicer though, you may find it a little expensive. If you want a cheaper machine Hurom HH elite would be a perfect alternative. It’s $200 cheaper based on SRP but you won’t be getting these extra accessories―citrus press attachment, tofu press, ice cream strainer. Who wouldn’t want to enjoy a healthy frozen treat?
Like Hurom HH Elite, it also processes your produce at 43 RPM. This might be slow but it’s been optimized to extract more juice from leafy greens. At the same time this slow revolution makes it a perfect machine for making ice cream.
There you have it, Hurom HZ―a tofu maker, a citrus press, an ice cream maker and most of the time just a plain reliable juicer.
Omega J8007S & J8008C – Best Masticating Juicer (Horizontal Type)
Still, the award goes to Omega J8007s and J8008C. Omega also has a line of premium masticating juicers with more power and advanced features―Omega NC800HD, NC900HDC and NC900HDSS. They are great but we found them a little expensive.
Omega J8007S & J800C are identical, the only difference is the finish. J8007S is silver where S stands for silver, and J8008C is chrome and obviously C stands for chrome. These are the third generation of Omega’s 8000 series which are consistent best sellers in Amazon under the masticating juicer category. If we’ll combine the aggregated ratings of both juicing machines we’ll get of 4.63/5 out of 321 votes.
We’re really surprised that until now Omega J8006 is still the best seller in Amazon. It’s completely understandable that it’s cheaper but a lot of people doesn’t know that the plastic used in that machine is not BPA free. In addition, the newer models (8007 & 8008) offer 25% larger funnels, larger and stronger screen housing with dual stainless steel inserts. It’s clearly more durable and versatile than the previous models.
Horizontal masticating juicers are extremely efficient. They are the perfect machine for making green juices and an all around machine for any type of produce. Not only does it help you juice but it can also serve other functions in your kitchen. It can mince, grind, homogenize, make noodles, etc. Who needs a food processor when you have a juicer like this?
Breville Juice Fountain Multispeed BJE510XL – Best Centrifugal Juicer
Nothing changed in the fast juicer space, Breville is still the alpha in this category. They are known to manufacture the best centrifugal juicers in the market. You can see it in the reputation that they’ve set in the juicing industry. Though the warranty is something that we can’t live with, they’ve been too transparent about it and it’s a good sign that you’re in a company that won’t vanish overnight.
BJE510XL garnered an aggregated rating of 4.48/5 from over 5574 votes. This multi-speed centrifugal juicer is far more superior than Breville JE98XL. It has a five speed adjustable setting for an added precision and a stainless steel finish. It’s a perfect machine for both beginners and veteran juicers.
Tribest Green Star Pro GS-P502 – Best Twin Gear Juicer
Triturating juicers provide a whole new level of juice extraction experience. It’s the most effective and the most efficient among all types of juicers. In this category, Green Star Pro replaces Green Star Elite.
It’s a whole lot better than elite model due to several reasons.
One huge factor lies in the newly designed twin gear. It’s now 100% stainless steel with more cutting points, and recess have been incorporated to reduce strain in the motor. This makes it more durable and that is the very reason why the manufacturer raised the warranty to 15 years for household use.
If you’re curious, the bioceramic technology was grandfathered in the core of the augers. The twin gear has built in magnets which enhances the para-magnetic properties of alkaline minerals such as potassium, calcium and magnesium in your juice reducing the rate of oxidation even further. Sounds very complex but to put it simply, the combination of low RPM and magnetism maximizes the nutritional value of your juice to an unparalleled degree. That is the ultimate selling point of Green Star juicers.
Not only does it help you juice at home but it’s also a good machine for your juice bar. It’s the only twin gear juicer with commercial certification. Household juicers can’t be used for business but this particular one is an exception. It’s warrantied for 3 years in commercial application.
Cuisinart CJE-1000 Juice Extractor – Best Value Juicer
For those who are looking for the best juicer for your money, Cuisin Art CJE 1000 can be your perfect match. It only costs a few bucks over $100 but it’s packed with features that makes it a $250 machine.
This juicer is a multi speed 1000-watt juice extractor that can handle soft and hard produce very well. It has a 5-speed dial with blue LED light ring allowing you to control your juicing speed with precision. You can use lower speed for softer fruits and vegetables, and higher speed for extremely hard produce like carrots, beets, and celery. Don’t take our word for it, 1035 votes and a rating of 4.16/5 couldn’t be wrong.
The closest Breville model with five speed setting costs 35 percent higher. Considering its performance versus the price along with its other features such as dishwasher safe parts and being BPA free, not to mention that it’s back by a 3 year warranty, this professional high speed juice extractor is truly the best bang for your buck.
