With a price that's $30 less than its closest juicing rival, the $70 Hamilton Beach 67601A Juice Extractor serves up excellent performance without having to spend a ton of green. This machine produced the greatest amount of juice from our sample oranges, beating out four other products within a group of five centrifugal juicers.

Hamilton Beach 67601A Juice Extractor

The Good

The Hamilton Beach 67601A Juice Extractor is affordably priced yet outperforms other juicers which cost twice as much. The 6760A Juice Extractor's large food chute and mouth accepts big pieces of fruit and vegetables and its parts are dishwasher safe.

The Bad

With thin clamps, plastic design and no juice cup included, the Hamilton Beach 67601A Juice Extractor is not a luxury model. The machine lacks a cleaning brush as well, a standard accessory on most juicers.

The Bottom Line

For less than its centrifugal juicer competition, the Hamilton Beach 67601A Juice Extractor pulls the most liquid from citrus, even kale, than any centrifugal juicer we've tested to date.

I recorded a very efficient juice extraction percentage of 71.8 percent (based on average remaining pulp and drinkable juice yield) from the appliance. It also managed to leach more liquid from fibrous kale leaves than any of these machines we put through the wringer, an impressive juice extraction percentage of 50.1 percent.

Juicing results aside, the Hamilton Beach 67601A does cut some corners. The appliance's plastic construction, specifically its pair of thin locking latches, give it a cheap appearance. Additionally, while this juicer's components are dishwasher-safe, Hamilton Beach doesn't include a cleaning brush to scrub its strainer basket or even a juice cup to collect fruit and vegetable liquid. To be fair, these accessories are bundled with slightly pricier juicer models the company sells.

You will find a wide feed chute on the Hamilton Beach 67601A which is designed to accommodate larger produce items. It will accept medium to small whole fruits such as apples, peeled oranges and tomatoes. Anything bigger and you'll be forced to do some chopping. All this makes the $80 Hamilton Beach model perfect if you seek good juicing performance for a reasonable price. Shoppers searching for a juicer that's more stylish plus easier to clean will find the $100 Breville JE200XL Compact Juice Fountain more their taste.
