The Best Juicers Of 2022

It's no secret that juicing has been a mainstay of wellness and healthy diets; from the trendy #thatgirl with requisite green juice to the Father of Juicing, John "Jay" Kordich infomercials, these nutrient-rich beverages seem to be elixirs of the modern day. Some food historians argue, however, that juicing has been around since antiquity and has been popularized in contemporary health culture since the mid-70s. It would be unfair then to dismiss juices and juicing as a simple trend. 

Beyond pop culture, juices are a helpful way to increase fruit and vegetable uptake and a good way to integrate new ones into the diet, albeit without fiber and phytonutrients (via the Mayo Clinic). Juicing at home is a cost-effective way of recreating similar drinks to the otherwise pricey grocery store and juice bar drinks. Making your own juice can also be a means of quality control, as you'll know exactly what's going into the juice you'll be enjoying. 

Before embarking on a juicing journey, it's a good idea to get educated on the options at hand and what juicer will work best for you and your juicing needs. Luckily, we've compiled a list of the best juicer options available in 2022 to meet any juicing need.

How we rated them

It seems relatively straightforward, right? A juicer needs to juice. But, there are three broad categories of juicer that are essential to know: centrifugal, masticating, and triturating (AKA twin-gear). Centrifugal juicers, as the name implies, break down fruits by spinning at high speeds and letting centrifugal force drain the fruit's juice. These simple juicers are usually the cheapest, mostly due to their simple design. They can't break down fruits and vegetables like their counterparts and their high heat tends to cause their juice to spoil faster (via Sprint Kitchen). 

Masticating juicers are, price-wise, the middle ground between centrifugal and twin-gear juicers. Often referred to as slow-press juicers, they require more time and energy than centrifugal juicers. Juice from a masticating juicer is more nutritional and stays fresher for a longer period of time.

Triturating juicers are top of the line, their twin-gear technology allows the machine to press juice with even less heat than masticating juicers. Triturating juicers are also cold presses and able to break down harder to juice leafy greens and roots without needing vegetables to be so finely chopped. Important to note is that twin-gear juices produce notably high-quality juices, with little foam that separates slowly. These things all do come with a price tag though! Beyond the three broad categories, there are many individual considerations that go into ranking the best juicer: from price, to intended use, size and noise, these are the things that have gone into ranking the best juicers.

Best overall juicer

Not too big, remarkably quiet, and under $200, the Breville JE98XL Juice Fountain Plus hits a sweet spot which is why it has been selected as the best overall juicer. The Breville juicer has a sleek curved shape that saves on space and its stainless steel body adds a streamlined finish to the already sharp yet compact design. Its wide chute by contrast allows for produce to be processed with minimal prep-time in comparison to other juicers.

The Breville Juice Fountain Plus is a centrifugal juicer, which does pose a series of challenges that the machine for the most part addresses. The juicer has both a soft and hard mode, which means that, unlike other centrifugal juicers, it can juice both fruits and tougher vegetables, such as leafy greens, alike. Though do beware, this juicer still does produce a considerable amount of food waste (via Amazon). The Fountain Plus' juices aren't foam-free but a built-in pulp catcher works to minimize the foam that otherwise plagues centrifugal juicers. A review from the New York Magazine even notes that the Breville juicer remains among the top-rated juicers on Amazon. 

As of April 2022, the Breville JE98XL Juice Fountain Plus is available on Amazon for $159.95.

Best budget juicer under $100

A classic among juicers, we would be remiss not to mention the Hamilton Beach Big Mouth Juice Extractor. The price is a major selling point for this oldie but goodie, coming in at around $70. Beyond its affordability, the Hamilton Beach Juicer has a lot of bang for its buck. According to one reviewer, this juicer is more than qualified to juice an array of fruit, and it's able to do so remarkably quickly. 

This juicer is a bigger model that is able to work through a considerably large amount of produce. The same reviewer even suggests tieing a bag to the back chute where fruit skin is dispersed to help with a neater juicing process that catches the machine's larger amount of food waste more effectively.

Of course, speed comes at a price, and as mentioned, centrifugal juicers often heat up and oxidize juices in the process. The Hamilton Beach Juicer is unfortunately no exception and tends to warm up. One more thing to consider before taking the plunge is that this juicer is, as noted by the previous review, a loud machine. For beginners or those who want to make a large amount of juice, this might just be the price to pay in the name of fresh juice. 

At the time of this writing, the Hamilton Beach Juicer can be purchased on Amazon for $69.99.

Best budget juicer under $50

Another centrifugal juicer, the Black+Decker 32oz Citrus Juicer sets itself apart from the pack with its astoundingly low price point. This model is a simple juicer, it can really only juice soft citrus fruits properly. It has a no-frills design, comes with an auto-reversing cone that allows for effective juicing, a main compartment doubles as a pitcher, and the entire machine comes apart to allow for clean-up as quick and easy as juicing.

As noted by one Amazon reviewer, the Black+Decker Citrus Juicer is a sturdy machine that can make a lot of citrus juices and lemonades quickly. The review even claims that over 12 oranges were able to be juiced in under 20 minutes. By now, of course, it's clear that juicing this quick comes at a price. But, as the same review notes, readers who need or want a "miracle machine" should probably look for more versatile (and pricey) juicers. Those, however, who come in with grounded expectations are in for a fresh and zesty cup of juice at a more than reasonable price. 

The Black+Decker 32oz Citrus Juicer is available for around $20 on Amazon.

Best luxury twin gear juicer

Triturating, or twin gear juicers, are heavy-duty juicers that produce juice that lasts. It's precisely this that makes these types of juicers pricier than others. The Greenstar Pro All Stainless Steel Jumbo Twin Gear Commercial Slow Juicer, otherwise "simply" referred to as the Green Star, is a giant among juicers and exhibits everything that makes the heftier price tag worth it. In fact, it was Green Star that allegedly originated the iconic twin gear design. 

This beast of a juicer uses stainless steel twin augers to reap the rewards from fruits and vegetables alike and is a veritable workhorse: moving at around 110 rpm, it makes a cold press juice. Its juice stays fresh up to 72 hours after being made and its manufacturer Tribest even guarantees 50-200% more nutrients than other juicers. The Green Star juicer is best suited for serious juice lovers who are looking to juice tougher than average ingredients, like wheatgrass, kale, and pine nuts.

Besides the juicer's serious price tag, buyers should keep in mind that this juicer can be tricky to clean and must be taken apart to properly do so. For the right person, however, the Green Star is nothing short of a dream. Available in black, white and grey, the Green Star can also be used to make other kitchen goodies such a sauces, sorbets and even paté

The Greenstar Pro All Stainless Steel Jumbo Twin Gear Commercial Slow Juicer is available as of April 2022, on the company's website for $849.95.

Best luxury juicer

Next is the Kuvings Whole Slow Juicer, a masticating juicer with an especially sleek design. The Kuvings EVO820 has a unique "O" shape and is available in both black and gold, and comes with the option to add a leather finish which adds a twist to this already modern juicer. But it isn't only pretty: it's powerful. 

The Kuvings EVO820 is a smaller and slower juicer which means produce needs to be cut into relatively tiny chunks in order to juice without clogging. The juicer moves at about 82 RPM, and needs a good bit of time to make juice compared to other juicers. The Kuvings EVO820 is able to process just about any fruit, vegetable, root, and even beans. Beyond that, this versatile juicer even offers a special citrus juice feature.

One reviewer compliments the juicer for making delicious juice, being quiet, and easy to clean. Bear in mind that juicers are notoriously difficult to clean, and being "easy to clean" is a relative term. As another review points out, because the juicer is not dishwasher safe, it needs to be manually cleaned after each use. Soaking the juicer's mesh nets under warm water helps remove the finest and stickiest of pulps. 

Ultimately, the Kuvings EVO820 is a unique juicer that is a luxury investment. For those who are looking for a slightly smaller juicer that fits a certain aesthetic, nothing else compares.

Best slow juicer

For those who are interested in the benefits of slow juicing at a lower price, the Omega Vert Slow Juicer might be the right choice. Available with either a square or round juicer, this masticating juicer has plenty to write home about. 

The VSJ is the updated model of the VST juicer. Since the update, there certainly have been improvements across the board for this juicer: its new motor spins more slowly which leads to less oxidized juice (with a longer shelf-life) and the new design makes sure that juice is less frothy with drier pulp (via Plant Based Pros). One reviewer notes that the pulp is so dry that they could even use it to make meatballs and crackers.

As previously mentioned, masticating juicers are slow juicers that will need some time in order to make their nutrient-rich juice. That being said, the Omega Vert Slow Juicer is not fussier than any other masticating juicer. There are some peculiarities to the Omega, it's not completely BPA-free and some on Reddit have noted that the third-party customer service provider Omega uses to honor its generous 15-year warranty is notoriously hard to reach. Even with this in mind, it remains a high-quality juicer that makes high-quality juice. 

At the time of this writing, you can find the Omega VSJ843QS Juicer Vertical Slow Masticating Juice Extractor on Amazon for $479.95.

Best citrus juicer

The Smeg Citrus Juicer is a juicer with a reputation that precedes it. Smeg, short for Smalterie Metallurgiche Emiliane Guastalla, is an Italian based manufacturer and designer. First founded in 1948, through the decades, the once small company has not strayed far from its original aesthetic. Well over 80 years after its conception, Smeg's classic design remains nonetheless very unique, with a hint of retro nostalgia. 

Along with its other beloved appliances, Smeg has created a citrus juicer that is nothing short of iconic. Coming in a delightful variety of bold and pastel colors, this egg-shaped juicer was even included in a surprising, yet bold, Dolce x Gabanna crossover.

Beyond style, Smeg has created a straightforward citrus juicer that does its one job well; pressing soft citrus fruits into a zesty juice. This centrifugal juicer is made out of high-quality aluminum and stainless steel along with a dust-resistant tritan lid which contributes to its $200 price tag. According to Homes & Gardens, the Smeg Citrus Juicer is well worth the splurge; it's easy to clean, quiet, and reliable, all the while inarguably stylish. Do keep in mind that the Smeg Citrus Juicer is an electric juicer, so it does heat up while juicing. The juices it does make have a much shorter shelf life compared to the previously mentioned slow juicers. 

Find the Smeg Citrus Juicer in your color of choice for $199.95 on Amazon.

Best manual juice press

A little bit out of left field, the manual juice press is an oldie but goodie when it comes to good ol' fashioned juice. This cast iron press with acid-resistant enamel accents is beyond durable, and its small yet chic design allows the press to be stored or displayed as desired. Needing no electricity at all, there is no need to worry about juice oxidization. Of course, manual presses are best for soft citrus juices. This doesn't mean that kitchen aficionados can't get creative as they want, one reviewer said that they used this juicer to press pomegranate seeds into a jam.

This juicer is easy to clean and can make juice as fresh as any other juicer on the list. Keep in mind, that this juicer can only fill the cups that fit its relatively small base and makes relatively pulpy juices. Nonetheless, this simple juicer is perfect for those who are willing to put in some extra elbow grease to get their morning cup of OJ

As of April 2022, you can find this manual juice press on Amazon for as little as $55.99.

Best celery juicer

Another Italian design, the Aeitto Celery Juicer is starting to gain traction among American consumers for good reason. One review praises the masticating juicer as speedy and easy to disassemble and reassemble when cleaning. 

Despite its name, this sleek juicer can juice much more than celery. The Aeitto Juicer has two modes like the previously mentioned Breville Fountain. Its soft mode, which operates between 85-100 rpm, is able to juice softer fruits like watermelon, grapes, and berries. Its hard mode rotates around 90-110 times per minute and is able to tackle harder produce like apples, carrots, ginger, kale, and, of course, celery. There's certainly a lot more versatility than the name implies.

Before purchasing, it's important to take heed that this juicer needs a little more time to juice. It produces particularly frothy juice, though another review notes that this is easily remedied by juicing immediately after cutting the produce. 

Available on Amazon in black, silver, and white the Aeitto Celery Juicer is a wonderful machine to get into juicing with a reasonable price of just under $110.

Best compact juicer

Size really does matter, and if you don't want to sacrifice space for fresh juice look no further than the Hurom HP Juicer. This small juicer is able to save on space all the while delivering with an eye-catching curvy design and delicate pastel colors. Though small, the South Korean design does not by any means skimp on quality.

Hurom is actually known for its slow squeeze technology and with only 43 RPM, and similar to the previously mentioned Green Star, relies on an auger to juice. Patience is key for those who wish to get their fresh juice through this method. The Hurom HP can juice fruits, dark leafy greens, and even nuts to make plant-based milks at home. Positive reviews also more than confirm the juicer's prowess and juice quality. According to Juicing Journal, there are a few key points to bear in mind before purchasing, like prep and juice time as well as price point. Though the Hurom HP is actually the most price-effective Hurom Juicer, it still has a relatively high price tag. 

The juicer's small size might not be efficient for those who want to make a lot of juice in one sitting and don't want to spend a pretty penny on it. For those with smaller spaces and a strong need for high-quality juice, the Hurom HP is a strong contender. Find the Hurom HP Juicer for $322.15 on the company's website.

Best Multi-Purpose Juicer

It's not every machine that legendary Bon Appétit singles out and praises, but those that are, are exceptional. One of these noteworthy and buzzy machines is the Omega NC900HDC Juicer. In a lengthy review, the culinary magazine lauds the masticating juicer as a powerful, quiet and beyond any fad diet. The second Omega on the list, the NC900HDC is another slow press model. No worries though, this Omega Juicer has a 2.5 inch wide chute that can process a good amount of produce can be juiced in one sitting. 

A fair amount of time will lead whichever owner of an Omega NC900 to high-quality nutrient-rich juice without any foam and a long shelf-life. Beyond juice, the Omega NC900HDC can be used to make baby food, nut butters, mince herbs, and even grind coffee.

One well-known foodie, Daphne Javitch, referred to the juicer as the Manolo Blahnik of the juicing world in the same Bon Appétit review. This compliment is easy to understand given the design and competence of this machine. Similar to the shoe, this juicer will cost a pretty penny. This likely isn't a sound investment for those who enjoy a luxury juice once in a blue moon. For those who find themselves regularly going out for fancy café press juices or want to upgrade their current juicing habits, the Omega might just be the right indulgence. 

Find the Omega NC900HDC Juicer on Amazon for $367.96.
