Best juicers of 2020: Breville, Hamilton Beach, Oster and more for your kitchen

Entry-level juicers work with blades at a rapid pace, pushing your product through a mesh sieve for the sizzling juice in mere moments. A centrifugal juicer can be messy and loud, but nothing beats fresh juices at home, especially if you’re growing your own produce.

There are a few things you should know About choosing the best juicer. I tested eight top-reviewed and best-selling centrifugal models to find out which ones would give you the most OJs for your orange. So grab yourself a green juice and keep reading – here is how it all got shaken.

Hamilton Beach brought in the best performers when it started getting the most juice from oranges and kells (the top fruit and vegetable juices are the most juicy on their grocery list). We also test apple juice (you’ll find that winner below). This juicer of 800 watts has only one speed. Every other juicer we tested had at least two speeds, proving that not always good, more.

At just $ 55, it takes the title for the best juicer on a budget out there today when you want to juice fruit and leafy vegetables. It is dishwasher-safe, too, which, in my opinion, is just as important as the quality of the juice. My only complaint is that Big Mouth does not come with a juice reception to keep it under the spout. Many other models include this, but if you’re pouring juice directly into your glass or pot, this shouldn’t be a problem.

True to Brailleville, this vertical juicer gave a high-end feel and looked great. When it came to the demonstration, it was very close to Hamilton Beach as the best juicer, and it gave me the best yield for the group’s apple juice. This two-speed, 850-watt model is priced at $ 150, but it comes with some nice features.

It includes a 1-liter juice pitcher, and more importantly, a “froth separator.” This easy divider inside the pot maintains the flaky top layer of your juice while you add the good stuff. Like all juicers on this list, you will also find a brush accessory inside the juicer machine to clean the mesh sieve basket.

Oster’s Juicy Juicer wins for the 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 other uncoated metal models. A convenient rotating spout with open and close positions keeps the juice from dripping onto your countertops from the feed counter.

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

Other models

The three officers above were the best performers, but I tested eight officers in total. Here are the other five models:

  • Kuvings NJ series centrifugal juicer: It was our third place winner for Juice Extract. A bit on the expensive end at $ 149, but a good bet if you ever see it on sale.
  • Bagotte DB-001: For just $ 60, this juicer is a budget model that can work.
  • Mueller Austria: This juicer of 1,100 watts was the average to warrant a price of $ 150.
  • Cuisinart CJE-1000: It looks great, but performed poorly. It is also a strong $ 179.
  • Black + Decker: This juicer was our worst performance, but it is a cheap way to try your hand at Xu for just $ 40.

How does a juicer test work

Testing the juicer means, well, juicing. We collect apples, oranges and buds and put these juices in test with different texture.

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

The result was a pinkish juice with a light brown pulp. Once the juicing was complete, I re-measured the filled juice and combined the juice with the apple waste to determine how much juice came out of the apple and how much of the apple ended up in the pulp bin. This is the same method I used for oranges and buds.


I peeled three navel oranges and removed the fibrous center pulp. I measured them, and assumed empty juicer and juice. Depending on the shoot size of the juicer, I downed the orange to fit the shoot.

For orange juice, I give rasadhiras a good setting for their low speed, soft and juicy fruits like oranges. Once the juicer was over, I again weighed everything and took notes.


The juicer test would not be complete without a leafy green element. It is worth noting here that most centrifugal juices will not model cold presses (ie, masticating) to extract the juice from the greens. Nevertheless, this is possible and some are dependent on centrifugal juicer work.

Like the apple and orange juice tests, I measure and record the weight of the equipment, along with three large black leaves. Trimming is not necessary here. The banana stem has a lot of nutritional value and will go through the juicer. I see very small amounts when it comes to juice, so if you are keen on the juice of leafy things, then a torrential juicer may be your better bet.

things to consider

Centrifugal juices are fine for processing oranges, apples and many other fruits and vegetables. When it comes to greens, a centrifugal juicer will not be your best bet. It is important to think about what you will do most often.

Of course in all three tests I consider factors other than weight data. I want to look for a juicer with a wide mouth, about 3 inches. That would be a considerable reduction in the amount of submission you need to do before you juice. I am also a big fan of the juice pitcher included with the fracture separator (for what it’s worth, I also like pulp-free orange juice).

Other handy additional features include a cap in the brush (including most juices) as well as a cap to cover the suction cup at the base of the cap and juicer so that it can freeze on your counter.

No matter which juicer you choose, I want you to get satisfaction by turning the extra fruit or household product into a tall glass of refreshing juice. The fun is not stopped there either. What did I do with all my test juices? I made Frozen Juice Pop.
