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. We tested the top juicers that will best help you kick off your day strong.
Best Overall Juicer
If you hate prep-work, the centrifugal Breville Juice Fountain Cold Plus is the juicer for you. It can fit a whole apple in its 3.5-inch wide feed tube. Unique rivets on the top of the feed tube help position and guide ingredients into the juicer well. It juiced carrots and kale the fastest and was a top contender when it came to juicing apples. Results all tasted sweet and pulp-free. The juicer’s dial is easy to use with helpful speed descriptors (slow for soft fruit, high for hard vegetables). The large, 70-ounce pitcher and heavy-duty lid seemed like a bonus, perfect for serving extra large batches or storing leftovers.
Best Juicer for Easy Cleanup
Most juicers have metal mesh strainers that need to be diligently scrubbed. The Hurom Easy Clean Slow Juicer has heavy duty plastic strainers, which are a game changer: They have large vertical grooves that are easy to clean. The tiled juicing chamber pours out more juice, too, which leaves you with less mess inside. 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. Plus, the pulp spout has a little trap door that allows for even easier cleaning and less digging around. In our Lab's testing, this model made some of the freshest-tasting green juice and we loved that you can control the amount of pulp. Other accessories include a smoothie strainer and an ice cream strainer.
Best Juicer for Greens
The Breville Big Squeeze can manage all fruits and veggies due to its unique feed tube design. 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. This design helped prevent jamming in our tests and reminded us of commercial orange juice makers that line up oranges waiting to be squeezed. It came out on top on in our kale juicing test, in which we evaluated taste, temperature, time to juice, and yield. Results were smooth and relatively sweet.
Best Slow Juicer
The Hurom HP Slow Juicer wins for both style and function. Its curved design and back-facing pulp spout make it particularly eye-catching. 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. Clean-up was easy, too, with its dual-sided cleaning brush.
Best Citrus Juicer
This retro-chic appliance from Smeg will juice your oranges, lemons, limes, and other citrus fruits with ease. It comes in black, cream, pastel green, pink, red, and pastel blue so you can match it to your bar cart (or your cocktail).
Most Versatile Juicer
This juicer does and has it all, from a wide-mouthed feed tube that can still juice thin ingredients, to multiple strainers for juice, smoothies, and ice cream. It also comes with an extra fine-mesh strainer for pulpy juices, although we didn’t find we needed it. Three cleaning tools arm you with everything you need when it comes to clean-up; plus, a lid opener in case anything gets stuck. Our favorite, and likely most underrated, feature? A carrying handle that allows you to move your juicer around easily. Is there anything they didn’t think of?
Easiest Juicer to Use
Thanks to its game-changing self-feeding hopper, this pretty Hurom H-AI Slow Juicer chops and pushes down fruits and vegetables for you. In addition to being less work than other juicers on the market, the Hurom's automatic operation makes it harder to clog or overfeed the hopper. But because it's pricey, this luxe model's an investment we would recommend for true juice enthusiasts. Available in rose gold, slate blue, or silver.
Best Value Juicer
Juicers can be pricey and fussy but we love the affordable, no-frills AICOK Centrifugal 2-Speed Juice Extractor. It’s easy to assemble, easy to use, fast, and makes smooth, pulp-free juice. Best part is, all of the parts are dishwasher safe. It's our top pick and the most affordable! While the juicer was a little loud in our Lab tests, you can’t go wrong for the price, speed, and results.
