Best Juicer of 2023

A juicer is a great way to kick-start your health and improve your nutrition. We tested the best juicers on the market to find out if the juice is worth the squeeze.

In this article:

It's time to take a stand against the overpriced juice shops selling an 8-ounce green juice for $9. Rather than driving to your local juice shop, try juicing at home. With so many different juicers available, it can be hard to find the best juicer for you and your needs. That's why we've been testing them.

Centrifugal juicers, which are considered traditional or entry-level juicers, produce strained juice in seconds as blades spin at high speeds to chop your produce and push it through a mesh sieve. These centrifugal machines can be loud and messy, but fresh juice seems like a fair trade. That's especially true if you're using homegrown produce -- you know you want to add a leafy green or two from your garden to a delicious and nutritious juice.

You want to be sure your centrifugal juicer is easy to clean (citrus juice can get sticky!) and has enough power for an impressive juice yield -- no one has time for a manual juicer if they're trying to get out the door in the morning. The best juicer should also have a big enough feed tube for even larger pieces of produce. Even if you're only planning to juice citrus fruit or celery, there are a lot of juicing options out there. 

So if you're in the market for the best juicer to make yourself a healthy drink (or nut butter), keep reading. We've gathered the best juicers for 2023 below.

Best juicers

Hamilton Beach was the best performer when it came to getting the most citrus juice from oranges and green juice from kale (the top fruit and vegetable for juice found on most grocery lists). We also test apple juice to see how a juicer handles hard fruit (you'll find that winner below). This 800-watt juicer has one speed; every other juicer we tested was a twin-gear juicer and had at least two speeds, but we didn't find that necessary.

At just $70, the Big Mouth also takes the title for the best juicer on a budget out there today when you want to juice fruit and leafy vegetables. It's dishwasher-safe, too, which is as important as juice quality in my opinion. My only complaint is that the Big Mouth doesn't come with a juice receptacle to place beneath the spout. Many other models do include this, it shouldn't be a problem but if you're juicing straight into your own glass or pitcher.

True to Breville form, this vertical juicer felt high-end and looked great. The Breville JE98XL was a very close second to the Hamilton Beach as the best juicer when it came to performance, and it gave me the best apple juice yield of the group. This two-speed, 850-watt Breville juicer is pricey at $180, but it comes with a few nice features.

It includes a 1-liter juice pitcher, and more importantly, a "froth separator." This handy divider inside the pitcher keeps the frothy top layer of your juice retained while you pour the good stuff. Like all the juicers on this list, you'll also get a brush accessory for cleaning out the mesh sieve basket inside the juicer machine.

Oster's JusSimple juicer wins for best design. It was easy to use and easy to clean. The sporty red coating on the filter makes it easier to clean out than uncoated metal models. A convenient rotating spout with open and closed positions keeps juice from dripping on your countertop from the feed chute.

The JusSimple also has a wide, 3-inch mouth, so you'll do less chopping to fit your produce into the juicer. A lighted speed dial adds to the sophistication of this model. While it didn't give me the best results (the Oster came in fourth of eight), it was a pleasure to use and I'd be happy to give it a permanent home on my countertop if it were on sale.

Other models 

We rounded up the best juicers above, but tested eight juicers in total. Here are the other five models: 

  • Kuvings NJ Series Centrifugal Juicer: This juice was our third-place winner when it came to juice extraction. It's a bit on the expensive end at $150, but a good bet if you ever see it on sale. 
  • Bagotte DB-001: At $60, this juicer is a budget model that can get the job done. 
  • Mueller Ultra-Power Juicer: This 1,100-watt juicer was too average in performance to warrant its $90 price, but you can frequently find it on sale for about $70. 
  • Cuisinart CJE-1000: This looks great, but performed poorly. It's also a steep $180. 
  • Black & Decker JE2200B: This juicer was our worst performer, but it is an affordable way to try your hand at juicing for about $50.

How we tested the juicers

Testing juicers means, well, juicing. We gathered up apples, oranges and kale to put these juicers to the work with varying produce textures. 


I tested the juicers with oranges, apples and kale.

To test the juicer's high-speed function, I cored and quartered three red apples. (I used organic Gala apples in this round of testing.) Next, I weighed the apples, the empty juice receptacle and the empty juicer on a large kitchen scale. Then, I juiced the apples on the juicer's high setting or, if there were multiple speeds, the manual's recommended apple speed.

The result was a pink juice with a light brown pulp. Once juicing was complete, I measured the filled juice receptacle and the juicer with its apple waste to determine just how much juice came out of the apples and how much of the apple ended up in the pulp container. This is the same method I used for oranges and kale. 


I peeled three navel oranges and removed the fibrous center pulp. I measured them, the empty juicer and juice receptacle. Depending on the juicer's chute size, I trimmed down the oranges into wedges that fit the chute.


Fresh orange juice can be extra-frothy.

For orange juicing, I set the juicer to its low speed, a good setting for soft fruit like oranges. Once the juicer was finished, I weighed everything again and took notes. 


Juicer testing wouldn't be complete without a leafy green element. It's worth noting here that most centrifugal juicers won't do as well as a cold-press juicer (aka a slow-masticating juicer) for extracting juice from greens. Still, it is possible and some centrifugal juicers are up to the task.


Kale juicing is certainly colorful. 

Molly Price/CNET

As in the apple and orange juice tests, I measured and recorded the weight of the equipment, as well as three large kale leaves. (It's not necessary to trim here; kale stems have plenty of nutritional value and will go through the juicer.) I did see much less volume when it came to kale juice. So if you're keen on juicing leafy items, a masticating juicer might be a better bet for you.

Things to consider

Centrifugal juicers are fine for processing oranges, apples and many other fruits and vegetables. When it comes to greens, a centrifugal juicer won't be your best bet. It's important to think about what you'll be juicing most frequently. 

I consider other factors besides weight data in all three tests, too. I'd recommend looking for a juicer with a wide mouth, around 3 inches. That will significantly cut down on the amount of prep you need to do before you juice. I'm also a big fan of included juice pitchers with froth separators (For what it's worth, I also prefer pulp-free orange juice).

Other handy extra features include brushes (most juicers include one) as well as a cap to cover the spout and suction cups on the juicer's base to hold it steady on your counter. 

No matter which electric juicer you select, I'd wager you'll get plenty of satisfaction out of turning extra fruit or homegrown produce into a tall glass of refreshing juice. The fun doesn't even have to stop there. What did I do with all my test juice? I made frozen juice pops.
