Juicing has been one of the most popular health and wellness trends over the last decade.

Although juicing should never be used as a replacement for eating plenty of whole, fiber-rich fruits and vegetables, many people find it’s a simple and delicious way to boost their intake of essential vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants.

Juice bars can be found in many cities, but purchasing fresh juice each day can get expensive. So, many juice enthusiasts prefer to make their own at home.

This article will take a closer look at 10 of the best juicers, along with the factors you should consider before you buy.

If you’re thinking about buying a juicer, there are several factors to consider — including style, size, and how you’ll use it — before making a final selection.

Type of juicer

For starters, be sure to determine whether there’s a specific type of juicer you prefer. Different types of juicers can vary in price, and some may be better suited for certain types of produce than others.

Masticating juicers, for example, are fairly quiet and best for leafy greens like spinach and kale, while centrifugal juicers tend to be louder, but are more cost-effective and work well for fruits and other types of vegetables.

Some juicers also have a wider feed chute, meaning you can fit fruits and vegetables more easily without having to cut them into smaller pieces.

We’ll get into this in more detail later on.


Juicers are also available in different sizes. Horizontal juicers can produce a higher volume of juice, but vertical juicers are more compact and may be better if you’re tight on space.


Slow juicers work well for soft fruits, while juicers with a higher speed can be used for firmer types of produce. Some models may also offer multiple speed settings, though this usually comes at a higher cost.


Finally, keep in mind that juicers with fewer removable parts may be easier to disassemble and clean. Some may also be dishwasher-safe for faster cleanup.

The juicers included in this article were selected based on the following criteria:

  • Efficiency. Juicers can be used to extract juice effectively from a wide range of fruits and vegetables.
  • Features. Some juicers are equipped with special features or functions, such as an extra-wide feed chute, multiple speed settings, or additional attachments.
  • Ease of use. Juicers feature a simple, user-friendly design and are easy to assemble.
  • Price. Each juicer has good value for the cost.
  • Customer reviews. Online reviews from customers are mostly positive.
  • Vetting. All the products included have been vetted to ensure that they meet Healthline’s medical and business standards.

General price ranges with dollar signs ($–$$$) are indicated below. One dollar sign means the product is rather affordable, whereas three dollar signs indicate a higher cost.

Best overall

Breville Juice Fountain Cold XL

Price: $$$

If you want a model that has the speed of a centrifugal juicer, but the results of a masticating juicer, look no further than the Breville Juice Fountain Cold XL.

It uses “cold spin technology” to minimize the increase in a juice’s temperature that’s common with centrifugal juicers.

The compact design boasts a strong, yet quiet 1,200-watt motor, a feed chute more than 3 inches (7.5 cm) wide, and 3 separate speed settings that give you complete control of the process.

Its juice pitcher holds up to 70 fluid ounces (2 liters) of juice and comes with a lid that can be used for storage — a testament to the extended shelf life that’s usually reserved for juice produced from masticating juicers.

The main downside of this model is its price, which is significantly higher than that of many juicers of similar caliber.

Plus some reviewers note that the pitcher’s design is tricky to clean.

Why we love it

  • equipped with cold spin technology to prevent increases in juice temperature
  • features three speed settings
  • designed with wide feed chute
  • includes fewer parts for easy assembly and cleaning
  • has a large pitcher and includes a storage lid

Things to consider

  • more expensive than competitors
  • some reports that the pitcher can be difficult to clean

Best for beginners

Kuvings B6000P Whole Slow Juicer

Price: $$$

The Kuvings Whole Slow masticating juicer can easily juice a variety of fruits and vegetables, including celery, leafy greens, and wheatgrass.

It’s equipped with a quiet 240-watt motor and a single auger, all wrapped up in a stylish, low profile design that won’t take up too much counter space.

Even though it’s a slow, 60-RPM juicer, it’s outfitted with several time-saving features, making it a great choice for those new to juicing.

For example, the feed chute is a generous 3 inches (7.5 cm) wide, which means you don’t have to spend too much time prepping your produce before throwing it in.

When you’re finished, there are just a few parts to disassemble. Plus, it comes with a rounded cleaning brush that makes cleanup quick and easy.

Also included is a separate attachment for making sorbet and smoothies.

This model isn’t the most affordable option but comes with a limited 10-year manufacturer warranty.

Despite its sleek appearance, some online reviewers reported issues with the pulp filter and other parts clogging.

Why we love it

  • equipped with wide feed chute to minimize prep time
  • additional attachments and rounded cleaning brush available
  • includes 10-year manufacturer warranty

Things to consider

  • higher price than similar products

Best budget-friendly

It’s equipped with a high-powered motor and an extra-wide feed chute to minimize prep time with less cutting and chopping required.

It’s also easy to assemble, and all removable parts are dishwasher-safe for faster cleanup.

Some users report that it may produce some foam, though you can easily stir the foam into the juice or scoop it up and discard it before drinking.

Others note that it can be very loud and is fairly lightweight, so you may need to hold it steady to prevent it from rattling while in use.

However, it’s one of the most user-friendly and budget-friendly juicers on the market, making it a good choice for beginners looking to try juicing without making a major investment.

Why we love it

  • affordable
  • includes 3-year limited warranty

Easiest to clean

Breville Citrus Press Pro

Price: $$

The Breville 800CPXL combines the simplicity of a manual citrus juicer with the convenience of an electric motor.

Its motorized reamer is versatile enough to be used for any type of citrus fruit, regardless of the size. All you have to do is press down the lever while the reamer spins to extract the juice.

It’s made from stainless steel, and all the major functional components are removable and dishwasher-safe. It has two separate pulp settings, and the pour spout is outfitted with a drip-stop function to reduce the risk of spillage.

The downsides of this product are the price and the reliability of the motor, as some users report that the motor tends to overheat if you’re making very large amounts of juice at once.

That said, it comes with a 1-year manufacturer warranty, and many users note that it’s made with durable and high quality materials, which may help justify the price.

Why we love it

  • features two pulp settings
  • equipped with drip-stop function to reduce spillage
  • includes 1-year manufacturer warranty
  • dishwasher-safe

Things to consider

  • relatively expensive
  • motor may overheat when making large amounts of juice

Fastest juicer

Breville Juice Fountain Elite

Price: $$

The Breville Juice Fountain Elite features a powerful 1,000-watt motor that’s strong enough to extract juice from even the toughest produce.

It comes with two preprogrammed speed settings so you can adjust according to the type and texture of the produce you’re juicing.

The feed chute is 3 inches (7.5 cm) wide, so you won’t need to spend much time, if any, cutting fruits and vegetables before they’re ready to be juiced.

Each part of the juicer that comes into contact with food can be disassembled and is dishwasher-safe, with many reviewers reporting that the juicer is easy to clean.

The Juice Fountain Elite’s price falls in the mid-range as far as juicers go.

The main downside is that the pour spout sits fairly low on the machine, making it difficult to fill the juice pitcher to its maximum capacity without spilling. Many users also report that its motor is quite noisy.

Why we love it

  • includes two speed settings
  • features wide feed chute to save time
  • easy to disassemble
  • dishwasher-safe and easy to clean

Things to consider

  • reports of issues with spillage

Best centrifugal juicer

Cuisinart Juice Extractor

Price: $$

Cuisinart is renowned for its high quality kitchen appliances, and the CJE-1000 Juice Extractor is no exception.

It boasts a powerful but quiet 1,000-watt motor and sturdy design made from die-cast and stainless steel. It also has an adjustable-flow pour spout to prevent spills.

With five speed settings, this machine is capable of juicing a wider variety of produce than many similar models. It can even juice certain hardy greens, like kale.

The feed chute is 3 inches (7.5 cm) wide, so minimal produce preparation is required, and all removable parts are dishwasher-safe.

It comes with a limited 3-year warranty and is budget-friendly, with many reviewers noting that it’s a great value.

The main downsides of the machine are typical of centrifugal juicers — the pulp is very wet, and it isn’t good for juicing tender greens like spinach

It also has a slightly smaller juice pitcher than some similar models, and some reviewers report that the latches on the side can be difficult to operate.

Why we love it

  • includes adjustable-flow pour spout to reduce spillage
  • offers five speed settings
  • budget-friendly
  • includes 3-year limited warranty

Things to consider

  • smaller juice pitcher
  • may not be suitable for juicing certain vegetables, such as spinach

Best masticating juicer

Hurom HP Slow Juicer

Price: $$$

If you’re in the market for a masticating juicer for personal use, look no further than the Hurom HP Slow Juicer.

It’s stylish and compact, which makes it a good option for anyone who has limited space or just wants to make enough juice for one or two people at a time.

Registered dietitian and Healthline Nutrition and Fitness Market editor Kelli McGrane tried the Hurom HP Slow Juicer and notes that it’s “a sleek juicer that doesn’t take up too much counter real estate.”

Still, its small size doesn’t mean it can’t perform. The quiet 150-watt motor and single auger are powerful enough to juice a wide range of fruits and vegetables, including leafy greens.

The auger works at an ultra-slow pace of 43 RPM to preserve juice quality while leaving behind exceptionally dry pulp — which you can use to make sorbet, tofu, and plant-based milk alternatives.

According to McGrane, the high yield of the juicer and the fact that it comes with both a fine and a coarse strainer may make it worth the investment for those who regularly juice.

It’s also durable and has fewer removable parts than its competitors.

Additionally, the Hurom HP comes with a 10-year manufacturer warranty.

The main downsides are that the feed chute and juice capacity are small — meaning that you need to cut foods into smaller pieces — and that it has only one setting.

McGrane also notes that “while there’s a bit of a learning curve, the biggest downside in my opinion is that the machine and its accessories aren’t the easiest to clean.”

Why we love it

  • quiet motor
  • compact for personal use
  • comes with fine and coarse strainers
  • includes 10-year manufacturer warranty

Things to consider

  • expensive
  • smaller feed chute and juice capacity
  • only one setting
  • may be difficult to clean

Best citrus juicer

Chef’n FreshForce Citrus Juicer

Price: $

The Chef’n FreshForce Citrus Juicer is a convenient and affordable handheld juicer perfect for manually juicing small citrus fruits such as lemons, limes, and mandarin oranges.

It has a simple, easy-to-use design and is made from durable stainless steel and nylon. To get started, all you have to do is slice the fruit in half, place it in the juicer, and squeeze the handles.

The juicer is dishwasher-safe and likely affordable for almost any budget. It’s also fairly small and doesn’t require much storage space.

Plus, reviewers note that it’s durable, long lasting, and backed by a lifetime warranty from the manufacturer.

The main downside is its lack of versatility. Although great for juicing small fruits, it’s too small to juice larger types of citrus, such as navel oranges or grapefruits.

Additionally, if you have diminished grip strength, you may have difficulty squeezing the handles to extract the juice.

Why we love it

  • ideal for those with limited space
  • affordable
  • simple and easy to use
  • includes lifetime warranty

Things to consider

  • limited to citrus fruits
  • only for manual use
  • may not be suitable for those with diminished grip strength

Best juicer for greens

Omega Ultimate Juicer and Nutrition System

Price: $$$

Omega is one of the leading manufacturers of masticating juicers, and the J8006HDS model lives up to the hype.

This juicer is exceptionally versatile and can juice anything from soft fruits to tough vegetables, leafy greens, wheatgrass, and everything in between. It also has multiple settings for making pasta, homemade nut butter, sorbet, and baby food.

The juicer boasts a powerful but quiet 200-watt motor that allows the durable auger to crush produce slowly — at 80 RPM, to be exact — to preserve juice quality and maximize yield.

It comes with a generous 15-year limited warranty and is slightly more affordable than many other juicers in its class.

The main downsides are the small feed chute and the multiple parts that require cleaning after each use. That said, all the removable parts are dishwasher-safe, and because pressed juices have a shelf life of 2–3 days, you may not have to juice very often.

Some users also report that the screen clogs up easily when juicing soft fruits or vegetables, though they also note that this can be easily fixed by using a spoon to clear the pulp.

Why we love it

  • equipped with multiple settings
  • includes 15-year limited warranty
  • removable parts are dishwasher-safe

Things to consider

  • has a smaller feed chute than other models
  • has multiple parts that require cleaning
  • may become clogged easily with certain foods
  • relatively expensive

Best juicer for whole fruit

Tribest Greenstar Elite Juicer

Price: $$$

If you’re looking for a heavy-duty slow juicer that’s built to last, the Tribest Greenstar Elite is a fantastic choice.

It has a unique 110-RPM twin-gear design that extracts a higher juice yield with better nutrient retention than many other juicers.

What’s more, the twin gears are made entirely of stainless steel, so you don’t have to worry about them breaking or wearing down.

It has separate settings for hard and soft produce to maximize efficiency and reduce food waste, and it comes with multiple filter options so you can tailor the amount of pulp that ends up in your cup.

Plus, the machine is capable of functioning as a basic food processor.

The main downsides are the price and the small feed chute. A narrow chute means you’ll have to spend more time chopping produce to fit into the machine.

Some users also note that it requires quite a bit of strength to push certain foods through the feed chute completely.

Additionally, the price point makes it a larger investment than many people are willing to commit to, though it comes with a limited 12-year manufacturer warranty.

Why we love it

  • multiple settings and filter options
  • also functions as a basic food processor
  • made with durable materials
  • includes limited 12-year manufacturer warranty

Things to consider

  • narrow feed chute
  • priced higher than similar products

There are four main types of juicers: citrus, centrifugal, masticating, and triturating. Below is a brief overview of each type, along with potential benefits and aspects to consider.

Citrus juicers

Citrus juicers are the simplest type and tend to be relatively affordable. However, their function is quite limited.

As the name implies, citrus juicers are primarily designed to juice citrus fruits. Thus, if you want to juice a variety of fruits and vegetables, a citrus juicer probably won’t meet your juicing needs.

That said, it’s a great choice for anyone who wants to use fresh juice for basic culinary and bartending pursuits or just likes to enjoy a glass of fresh orange juice with breakfast.

Centrifugal juicers

Centrifugal juicers use the force created by rapidly spinning metal blades — usually 6,000–16,000 RPM — to produce juice.

As the blades spin, they cut and press fruits and vegetables into a mesh filter, which separates the juice from the pulp.

Centrifugal juicers are one of the most popular types because they’re relatively affordable, easy to clean, and capable of quickly juicing a wide variety of fruits and vegetables.

However, centrifugal juicers aren’t usually good for juicing leafy greens and they often leave behind very moist pulp, meaning the maximum amount of juice hasn’t been extracted.

Because the spinning blades produce heat, juices made with this type of machine tend to oxidize quickly, giving the juice a limited shelf life of 24 hours or less.

For the best nutrition and freshest flavor, you should drink juice made with a centrifugal juicer as soon as possible, making this style subpar for those who want to juice now and drink later.

However, if you’re looking for an automatic juicer that works quickly and is easy to use, a centrifugal juicer might be a good option for you.

Masticating juicers

Masticating juicers, also known as slow or geared juicers, use one auger to slowly crush fruits and vegetables while pressing them against a filter to separate the juice from the pulp.

They’re great for juicing a wide range of produce — from hardy vegetables like carrots, celery, and beets to softer fruits like oranges and berries. They’re also one of the best tools for juicing leafy greens like spinach, kale, and chard.

Unlike centrifugal juicers, masticating juicers work too slowly to produce much heat. This prevents oxidation of the juice and extends its shelf life to about 72 hours.

What’s more, masticating juicers tend to yield a much larger volume of juice than other types, which can reduce food waste.

The main downsides of masticating juicers are the cost and the time that’s often required for use cleaning.

However, the lengthier process may prove worthwhile for high quality juice that stays fresh for several days.

Triturating juicers

Triturating juicers are similar to masticating juicers but feature a double auger design.

This type of juicer uses rotating twin gears to grind and crush fruits and vegetables and extract as much juice as possible while also producing very dry pulp.

Triturating juicers are ideal for vegetables and leafy greens, but they also work well with soft fruits like berries, mangos, and melons.

They are generally quieter than other machines, such as centrifugal juicers, and can also be used for other kitchen tasks like chopping vegetables or grinding nuts for nut butter.

However, they typically come with a higher price tag, and as horizontal juicers they often require more space on your kitchen countertop than other varieties.

How do you use a juicer?

In many cases, you only need to wash and prepare your produce before juicing. Depending on the size of your juicer’s feed chute, you might need to cut some fruits and vegetables into smaller pieces first.

For some types of juicers, including handheld citrus juicers, you first need to slice the fruit in half. Then, you’ll place it in the juicer and squeeze the handles together to extract the juice.

What makes a juicer good for beginners?

If you’re just getting started with juicing, look for a juicer with a large feed chute to reduce the amount of preparation required. Ideally, you should also look for a juicer that is easy to clean and disassemble between uses.

How do you make pomegranate juice?

To make pomegranate juice, first a small knife to cut off the top of the pomegranate and remove the crown. Cut the fruit into sections and break it apart.

Next, remove the seeds from the pomegranate, add them to a blender, and pulse until the seeds begin to separate from the juice. Press the seeds through a strainer and serve the juice as is or mixed with a bit of water.

When can babies drink juice?

According to the American Academy of Pediatrics, you should not introduce juice into your baby’s diet until they are at least 12 months old (1).

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) recommends sticking to 100% fruit juice and avoiding unpasteurized juice products, including homemade and freshly squeezed juices, for infants, children, and adolescents (2).

This is because unpasteurized juices may contain bacteria that pasteurization would have killed (2).

If you’re purchasing a store-bought juice, check the label carefully to determine whether it’s pasteurized —the FDA requires unpasteurized products to have a warning label (3).

Additionally, note that while some types of pasteurized juices are shelf-stable, others may need to be kept refrigerated or frozen to prevent foodborne illness. The bottle will include information on whether refrigeration is required (4).

How do you juice ginger?

To juice ginger, start by peeling it using the back of a spoon or a peeler. Then, simply cut it into small chunks and place each piece in the feed chute of your juicer.

There are countless juicer options available, but choosing one depends on what you like, your budget, and how you plan to use it.

Citrus juicers are great for anyone who plans to juice only citrus fruits, while centrifugal juicers are better for people who want to pulp a variety of fruits and vegetables quickly.

If you plan on juicing leafy greens or wheatgrass or want juice with the longest shelf life, check out masticating juicers or triturating juicers.
