Best juicers 2024: enjoy fresh, healthy juices at home

The best juicers for home use are a great way to ensure you get plenty of nutrients from fruits and veggies. These countertop appliances can help you make delicious homemade juice, whether you’re craving fresh OJ or celery juice. While most juicers are simple to use, some are tough to clean, and that’s because they can get clogged up with fibrous veggies and fruits. 

So, our biggest tip when choosing the best juicer for you is to get one that can be broken apart for cleaning or one that cleans itself (they exist!). Other things to look for include juicers that come with cleaning brushes, plus pulp strainers and pitchers for easy pouring. You can lose a lot of fiber when using a juice extractor, which is why some people also own one of the best blenders for making smoothies, as these tend to have a higher fiber content. 

Fresh juices are nutrient-dense, especially those made with a cold press juicer, so both types have merit. When it comes to different types of juicers, you’re looking at masticating, centrifugal, and cold press juice machines. Powerful masticating juicers are ideal for greens as they can squeeze liquid from thin leaves. Centrifugal juicers are cheaper but produce more heat, which can destroy some nutrients. Meanwhile, a cold press juicer will leave more nutrients intact, but these are expensive. 

Below are top-rated options from the world’s best juicer brands, including Breville, Cuisinart, and Hamilton Beach. Of course, if you're looking for more of a treat, head over to our guide to the best ice cream makers.

The best juicer overall

Our #1 juicer overall

Specifications

Juicer type: Centrifugal
Power: 1000 watts
Capacity: 1qt
Chute size: 3-inch

Reasons to buy

+
Extracts lots of juice
+
Works great with hard produce
+
Requires minimal chopping for fruits and veggies

Reasons to avoid

-
Fairly loud
-
Short power cord

Our top choice, the Cuisinart Juice Extractor CJE-1000, does a fine job extracting juice from tougher vegetables and fruits, leaving behind only a small amount of pulp. It struggled a bit with softer produce like lettuce and fresh herbs but still performed well.

This is also one of the few juicers we tested that managed to make almond milk using water-soaked almonds and water. In our tests, this juicer created the least amount of froth of any machine we tested, which means you get fewer bubbles and waste and more juice. Our food preparation time was minimal. This juicer has a 3-inch-wide food chute, so you don't have to spend a lot of time chopping fruits or veggies to fit. 

However, you need to spend some time cleaning this juicer since it comes with nine separate parts. Still, this process is made somewhat easier by the included cleaning brush. Plus, some parts are dishwasher-safe. This is a big juicer machine, so you probably want to find a spot on a kitchen counter to store it for daily use. It comes with a tall pitcher, a froth separator, and a nonslip base so it stays in place during operation.

2. Hamilton Beach Big Mouth Juice Extractor

The best juicer machine for those with less to spend

Specifications

Juicer type: Centrifugal
Power: 800 watts
Capacity: 1.2qt
Chute size: 3-inch

Reasons to buy

+
Good warranty
+
Easy to clean
+
Produces lots of juice

Reasons to avoid

-
Lots of froth

Juicers can be pretty expensive, but the Hamilton Beach Big Mouth Juice Extractor 67601 is a great budget option that still gives us plenty of fresh juice with ease. There are a few drawbacks with the Big Mouth, such as the lack of a pitcher to collect your fresh-squeezed juice and a larger-than-average quantity of pulp. That said, for the price, we were still very impressed with this machine. 

It’s covered by a generous three-year warranty and is compact enough to be stored easily. The Hamilton Beach Big Mouth Juice Extractor can be switched on and off with no settings in between. 

Realistically, you don’t need extra settings when it comes to juicing because everything you juice will yield the best results when placed under as much pressure as possible. That said, we did find that this juicer machine wasn’t the most powerful when compared to the more high-end options we tested. 

Because the juice this juicer made was high in pulp, those who are more health-conscious may find that it produces a high-fiber drink similar to the results of a masticating juicer. Of course, you can also strain your juice before drinking. 

The best juicer for small kitchens

One of the best juicers for smooth, practically pulp-free juice where space is tight

Specifications

Juicer type: Centrifugal
Power: 700 watts
Capacity: 1.1qt
Chute size: 75mm

Reasons to buy

+
Compact design saves counter space
+
Juices a whole apple with no prep

Reasons to avoid

-
Doesn't love dense veggies
-
Noisy when in use

The Breville Juice Fountain Compact stands out in a number of ways. It removes pulp and produces smooth juice, and it does it in a very compact design. The bigger juicer machines we tested have a separate tub that collects pulp, practically doubling their countertop footprint. This unit does it all in one relatively slim machine and only costs around $100. We used some cheaper machines, but they don’t do the same level of juicing; they produce more pulp. 

The Breville Juice Fountain Compact is one of many juicers that claim to juice a whole apple with no slicing or other prep, and this one actually did it in our testing. It was a small apple, but it was still impressive. Skipping some of the chopping will save you time.

This was not a perfect juicer machine. Its juice had more froth on the top than our best pick. It also struggled more than the best juicers with the really dense produce like beets. That is to be expected at this price level. It is also loud – one of the loudest juicers we tested. It had a tendency to spatter juice rather than produce a steady, smooth stream like some other juicers. It means you will want to use the included pitcher rather than your own cup.

The best juicer for families

The best juicer for creating large batches of juice in one sitting

Specifications

Juicer type: Centrifugal
Power: 850 watts
Capacity: 1.05qt
Chute size: 3-inches

Reasons to buy

+
Creates great juice
+
Quick setup
+
Wide feeder chute

Reasons to avoid

-
Not all parts are dishwasher safe

The Breville Juice Fountain Plus is a large, high-performing juicer with a tall pitcher which makes creating juice for the whole family easy. This juicer performed really well in our tests, and it produced less pulp and foam than almost any other juicer we tested. 

The juicer comes with a froth separator, filter basket, and cleaning brush, which makes cleaning its non-dishwasher-safe parts (that’s the juice cover and food pusher) easier. That being said, we still struggled to clean these parts after using the Breville Juice Fountain Plus. 

On the plus side, this juicer machine took seconds to set up and was able to juice fruit and vegetables just as fast, thanks to its powerful motor and wide feeder chute.

Omega MegaMouth Vertical Low Speed Quiet Juicer

This top-rated juicer is ideal for making fresh orange juice

Specifications

Juicer type: Masticating
Power: 240 watts
Capacity: N/A
Chute size: 3-inches

Reasons to buy

+
10-year limited warranty 
+
Larger chute can fit whole fruits
+
Automatic pulp ejection makes clean-up easy

Reasons to avoid

-
Tall design - may be difficult to store
-
Hand wash only

The 3-inch wide chute is great for busy mornings when chopping up your fruit is too time-consuming, as you can feed in most apples, oranges, kiwis, tomatoes, and pears whole. This also makes it easier to create a higher quantity of juice at a faster rate. 

Clean-up is also noticeably simpler as it features automatic pulp ejection, so not only will your juice be smoother, but washing up will require less faff. This machine operates at a lower speed of 60 RPM, which is designed to squeeze all ingredients efficiently to break down the fiber and yield the maximum amount of juice. Combined with a 240W motor and reduction gears, this juicer provides twice the crushing force than most other low-speed vertical machines, making it a top-of-the-range choice. 

Reviews are good across the board for this juicer. However, one downside is that it's hand-wash only. If you're not keen on washing up and you use your machine daily, then this is something to bear in mind. 

How we've tested the best juicers

How we test the best juicers

We've reviewed all four of the centrifugal juicers that have made our "best" list, and have even added an additional masticating juicer option - the Omega MegaMouth Vertical Low Speed Quiet Juicer - if those we've included aren't quite right for you.

When we test juicers we use them in our own homes to juice fruits and vegetables for a nutritious thirst-quenching drink or thicker soup. We've even used them to see how well they make almond milk. From the price and availability, through to set up and usage, we've considered all the need-to-know factors to help you add the best juicer for your household to cart.

While we try to test the juicers for as long as possible, in some instances we need to return the juicers back to the brand. This means that we may have only been in a position to use the juicers for a week-or-so and, therefore, can not testify against the greatest test of all; time. 

We'll flag the pros and cons throughout the review process, noting anything that you need to be aware of before potentially bringing one of the juicers we feature into your home. Don't forget to check the key specs, too.

How to choose the best juicer for you

Price
There are plenty of good juicers available between $60 and $300. In fact, during our research, we found that more expensive juicers aren't necessarily better. Perks like multiple speed settings, cleaning accessories, and a warranty appeared at several different price points. 

Performance
The best juicers extract as much liquid as possible from fruits and vegetables, leaving behind very little pulp. Machines that leave large amounts of very moist pulp just aren’t doing their job. 

The same is true for froth. Every juicer makes some froth, but you don't want inches of bubbles – you want a machine that gives you the most juice for your money.

Design
If you're serious about juicing, the best juicer for you is one that fits nicely on your kitchen counter so you can leave it out rather than hauling it out of a cupboard. 

That means paying close attention to the dimensions and even the length of the electrical cord. You don't want to buy a juicer that looks great in your kitchen but doesn't have a cord that reaches the outlet.

Noise
All of the juicers we tested make a certain amount of racket, but you might want to choose a less-noisy model if you don’t want to wake the other members of your household every morning.

Accessories
Make sure the juice machine includes a pitcher, a froth separator, a pulp strainer, and a cleaning brush. You will definitely appreciate a nonslip base, which keeps the machine from wiggling its way to disaster – and a big mess.

Best juicer: FAQs

How do you use a juicer?

For anyone new to juicing, here are a few things to keep in mind:

  • When juicing firmer produce like beets or carrots, chop each piece into smaller chunks. This requires more prep time but will put less strain on your juicer's motor and blades, which helps your device to live longer.
  • While it is possible to juice some nuts, the majority of them will only damage your device. One exception is almond milk. You do need to soak the almonds in water for 12 hours before juicing, which makes the nuts softer and puts less strain on your device.
  • Don’t allow your juice concoction to sit too long after creating it. Since they’re produce-based, these drinks have a limited shelf life before nutrients fade and they begin to attract mold.
  • If you’re juicing for a later occasion, it’s better to store your juice in the freezer rather than the refrigerator. The nutrients will last longer.
  • Add juices to common everyday recipes like muffins, pancakes, and soups to add more nutrients to your meals.
