There’s nothing like fresh juice to awaken the mind and invigorate the body, but buying fresh-squeezed juice at a local shop or supermarket can get quite expensive. That’s why juicers are so popular, since they allow you to make the same quality juice that’s just as fresh at a fraction of the price. Of course since juicers are so popular right now, that means there are so many options out there that it’s easy to get overwhelmed. Don’t worry though, because we’ve tested more than a dozen different juicer models so that you don’t have to.
Best budget option
The Cuisinart CCJ-500 Pulp Control Citrus Juicer has been a top-rated model for years and it’s perfect for anyone who plans to stick with citrus. Using it is as easy as slicing your citrus fruit in half, placing a piece on top of the cone, and pressing down the top. The cone automatically reverses as you juice to ensure that you squeeze out every last drop, and you can even adjust the amount of pulp in your juice.
Best mid-range option
If you’re looking for a full-featured juicer that packs premium power at a mid-range price point, it doesn’t get any better than the Breville JE98XL Juice Fountain Plus 850-Watt Juice Extractor. The extra large 3-inch feed chute is big enough to handle all of the fruits and vegetables you drop in, and 850 watts of power makes quick work of them. A low speed mode handles softer fruits like oranges, while the high-speed mode effortlessly tears through tough fruits and vegetables like celery, apples, carrots, and more. This puppy will fill a 16-ounce cup in about 8 seconds and you’ll wonder how you ever lived without it.
Best premium option
The Omega J8006 Nutrition Center Masticating Dual-Stage Juicer is a premium model that offers the kind of performance you would expect from a fancy $500 juicer, but it only costs about half that much. It uses a lower juicing speed of 80 RPM in order to reduce heat from friction, and your juice will be packed with more healthy enzymes as a result. It’s also wonderfully powerful, so much so that it can actually turn nuts into nut butter. No other juicer in this price range offers features or a design that can match this Omega model.
