A flashy cold-press machine

The VonShef Premium Slow Masticating Juicer has a grandiose name that suggests superior juicing.

Mighty performance from a compact appliance

It may look like a basic stand mixer but the Omega J8006 produces cold-pressed juice like a pro and without much mess.

Powerful but painful to clean

The $100 VonShef 990w Professional Juicer is a very capable centrifugal juicer, but also one that you need to wash by hand to keep clean.

Spend less money and make more juice

For less than many other juicers, the Hamilton Beach 67601A Juice Extractor pulls the most liquid from citrus and kale than any centrifugal juicer we've tested so far.

Super-affordable yet juices well

Electric juicers don't get much more affordable than the Black+Decker JE2400BD Juice Extractor, but despite its small stature and price tag, it processes citrus and other fruit well.

Stylishly compact and simple to clean

There's no denying that the Breville JE200XL Compact Juice Fountain is pricey, but it offsets that by offering a smart design that's simple to clean plus has seriously good juicing abilities.

Big, beautiful but can't stomach kale

The Breville JE98XL Juice Fountain Plus certainly tries to be perfect, but it can't quite pull it off. While its design is attractive and sturdy, it's expensive and can't handle green leafy vegetables well.

Like squeezing juice from kale

Because it's full of fiber and a low amount of moisture compared with fruit, many machines have a tough time pulling juice from kale.

Oranges are easy

Because of their high ratio of liquid to pulp, oranges are a breeze for most cylindrical juice extractors to handle.

A lime makes it alright

Often the complex and distinctively sour flavor of limes will balance the bitterness or sweetness of other fruits and veggies.

Doesn't that look healthy?

With the liquid and hopefully some of the nutritional content of citrus, apples, kale and ginger, a drink using the ingredients here can certainly taste good for you.

Separating pulp from juice

To separate produce pulp from yummy juice, centrifugal juicers essentially grate then strain ingredients through a metal mesh at high speed.

Don't knock juicing until you try it

Why go through all the trouble to juice? Just go ahead and take a sip of this nectar of nature and then you'll understand.

One mess of a mesh

At the heart of these juicers is a steel mesh, which after juicing should be washed by hand or tossed in the dishwasher.

A pile of dirty parts

Since juicers get very dirty by nature, it's imperative you know which of its parts are dishwasher-safe and which ones are not.
