What is the best juicer? Well, that depends a lot on what you want to juice, how much money you want to spend, your space requirements and the amount of time you want to spend using/cleaning it. Even the best juicers are a balancing act between all those factors, but we think these are the six best juicers on the market depending on your needs.


Citrus Juicer: Epica Stainless Steel Citrus Juicer

If you’re looking for a way to constantly have access to fresh citrus juice (oranges, limes, lemons, grapefruit, etc.) without the need for vegetable juicing, you don’t need anything more than this affordable Epica Stainless Steel Citrus Juicer. After you halve your fruits and press them into the reamer on top, the Epica automatically activates and pours juice into a container below the pour spout. With a size and price comparable to the average coffee pot, along with a stainless aesthetic that will fit right in with existing appliances, it’s the perfect juicer for everything from a great glass of OJ in the morning to fresh lime juice for margaritas. $40


Centrifugal Juicer: Breville JE98XL Juice Fountain Plus

Centrifugal juicers work by pushing produce down a feeder tube and through a spinning blade to quickly separate pulp from the juice itself. Few juicers do it better than the best-selling Breville JE98XL Juice Fountain Plus. With an 850 watt dual-speed motor and 3″ feed tube, the Breville Juice Fountain Plus makes quick work (about 8oz of juice in 5 seconds) out of whole apples, multiple carrots and beets. Since pulp is ejected into a separate container and most parts can be cleaned in the dishwasher, cleanup is also a breeze. If you value convenience, speed and quantity, this centrifugal model is the best juicer for you. $150


Horizontal Masticating Juicer: Omega J8006 Nutrition Center Juicer

Sometimes referred to as slow juicers, masticating juicers chew up your fruits and veggies with gears (or augers) and a screen rather than feeding them through spinning blades. The juicing process is slower. The cleanup takes longer. The produce needs to be cut. It’s a lot more time, effort and space, but the Omega J8006 Nutrition Center Juicer quietly produces juice better than anything you’ll likely find at the grocery store. With a dual-stage juicing system, low operational speed and high juice yield, this Omega juicer squeezes the maximum amount of nutrients and juice out of your produce without oxidizing it (which means it can be stored longer in the fridge). You can even use it for wheatgrass, nut butters and making homemade pasta. $300


Vertical Masticating Juicer: SKG Vertical Masticating Cold Press Juicer

The SKG Vertical Masticating Juicer functions much like the previously mentioned Omega with an auger and a screen, the main difference being the vertical gear. This means you get the same high-end output and operation in a much smaller footprint. The time-tested formula is even better in this SKG model with the addition of a 3″ big mouth chute, self-feeding operation, drip-free pour spout and clog resistance. At 23lbs it’s definitely built to last, but it’s not going to be something you’re going to want to drag in and out of the kitchen appliance storage area every time you want to juice—even though there’s a built-in handle. That’s OK because the Dyson-esque design is worthy of counter top display. $299


Twin Gear Juicer: Tribest Green Star Elite GSE-5050 Twin Gear Juice Extractor

By adding a second gear to the masticating juicer setup (think car transmission), the Tribest Green Star Elite Twin Gear Juice Extractor gets maximum yield out of anything from wheatgrass and kale to carrots and apple slices. In addition to high-quality juice and a beautiful, chromed out exterior, this Green Star Elite Twin Gear Juicer is one of the few masticating juicers that features complete mastication by adding the slicing and cutting functions you won’t find in other options. It’s not as easy as some of the other options to disassemble or clean, and it’s pricey, but if you’re doing big batches of juice every few days it’s absolutely worth it. $600


Press Juicer: Norwalk Model 280 Juicer

Designed by Norman Walker, a pioneer in the vegetable juicing and nutritional health fields, the Norwalk Juicer has been around for decades and is frequently referred to as the Rolls-Royce of juicers. This press juicer extracts the most juice possible with a two step process similar to an espresso machine. Produce is shredded into a linen bag or cloth on the left side, then placed in the hydraulic press on the right to extract the most superior juice you’ll ever drink. It works so well that the throwaway is a dry cookie of pulp and there’s an entire secondary market for it. If money is no object, this is the best juicer on the market. $2,500
