Best juicer of 2020 – CNET


Spring is approaching summer and many restaurants are closed due to it Corona virus concernsYou may be looking for a way to fix your juice bar at home. Enter: the centrifugal juicer. These affordable entry-level juicers spin blades at high speed as you slide your products through a mesh screen to give you juice in seconds. Yes, they can be loud and a bit messy, but nothing beats fresh juice at home, especially if you grow your own fruits and vegetables.

With a juicer, you can juice a lot of fruits, vegetables, and vegetables, and you don’t have to spend a fortune. Of course there are some Things you should know. I tested eight of the top-rated and best-selling centrifugal models to find out which ones give you the most OJ for your orange. Here’s how everything was shaken.

Hamilton Beach performed best when it came to getting the most juice out of oranges and kale. We are also testing apple juice (see the winner below). This 800 watt juicer has only one speed. Every other juicer we tested had at least two speeds, which proves that more is not always good. More.

At just $ 60, it’s also the title of the best budget option available today. It is also dishwasher safe. My only complaint is that the Big Mouth does not come with a juice container under the spout. Many other models offer this, but if you juice directly into your own glass or jug, this shouldn’t be a problem.

True to the Breville shape, this juicer felt high quality and looked great. It was a very close second behind Hamilton Beach when it came to performance and it gave me the best yield for the group’s apple juice. This 850-watt, two-speed model costs $ 150, but offers some nice features.

It contains a 1 liter juice jug and above all a “foam separator”. This practical divider in the pitcher holds back the frothy top layer of your juice while you pour the goodies. Like all juicers on this list, you will also receive brush accessories for cleaning the mesh basket in the juicer.

The JusSimple juicer from Oster wins for the best design. It was easy to use and easy to clean. The sporty red coating of the filter makes cleaning easier than with other uncoated metal models. A practical swivel spout with open and closed positions prevents juice from dripping onto your worktops.

The JusSimple also has a wide 3-inch mouth, so you don’t have to chop as much to fit your products in the juicer. An illuminated speed dial adds to the sophistication of this model. While it didn’t give me the best results (Easter came fourth out of eight), it was a pleasure to use it and I would love to give it a permanent home on my countertop if it were put up for sale.

Other models

The three juicers above were the best, but I tested a total of eight juicers. Here are the other five models:

  • Centrifugal juicer from the Kuvings NJ series:: This juice was our third winner in juice extraction. A bit pricey at $ 149, but a good bet if you ever see it for sale.
  • Bagot DB-001:: At just $ 60, this juicer is a budget model that you can use to get your job done.
  • Müller Austria:: This 1,100-watt juicer was too average to justify its $ 150 price tag.
  • Cuisinart CJE-1000:: It looks good, but it’s bad. It’s also steep $ 179.
  • Black + Decker:: This juicer was our worst performer, but it’s an affordable way to try juicing for just $ 40.

This is how testing juicers works

Testing juicers means juicing. We collected apples, oranges and kale to test these juicers with different product textures.

In order to test the high-speed function of the juicer, I cored and quartered three red apples (I used organic gala apples in this test round). Next I weighed the apples, the empty juice container and the empty juicer on a large kitchen scale. Then I juiced the apples at the high level of the juicer or, if there are several speeds, at the apple speed recommended in the manual.

The result was a pink juice with a light brown pulp. As soon as the juicing was finished, I measured the filled juice container and the juicer with its apple waste to determine how much juice came out of the apples and how much apple ended up in the pulp container. This is the same method that I used for oranges and kale.


I peeled three navel oranges and removed the fibrous pulp. I measured it and the empty juicer and the juice container. Depending on the shoot size of the juicer, I cut the oranges into wedges that match the shoot.


Fresh orange juice can be particularly foamy.

For juicing oranges, I set the juicers to their slow speed, a good setting for soft and juicy fruits like oranges. When the juicer was finished, I weighed everything again and made notes.


Juicer tests would not be complete without a green leaf element. It’s worth noting that most centrifugal juicers don’t work as well as a cold press (i.e. chew) model for extracting juice from greens. Nevertheless, it is possible and some centrifugal juicers are up to the task.


Kale juice is certainly colorful.

Molly Price / CNET

As with apple and orange juice tests, I measure and record the weight of the equipment and three large kale leaves. There is no need to trim here. Kale stalks have a lot of nutritional value and go through the juicer. I saw a lot less volume when it came to kale juice. So if you feel like juicing leafy products, a chewing juicer may be a better choice.

Things to watch out for

Centrifugal juicers are well suited for processing oranges, apples and many other types of fruit and vegetables. When it comes to greens, they are not the best choice. It is important to consider what you juice most often.

Of course, in all three tests I consider other factors besides the weight data. I would recommend looking for a juicer with a wide mouth, about 3 inches. This significantly reduces the amount of preparation that you have to do before juicing. I’m also a big fan of included juice jugs with foam traps (for what it’s worth, I also prefer orange juice without pulp).

Other practical additional functions are brushes (most juicers contain one) as well as a cap to cover the spout and suction cups on the bottom of the juicer to keep it steady on your counter.

No matter which juicer you choose, I bet you will get a lot of satisfaction if you turn additional fruit or local product into a tall glass of refreshing juice. The fun doesn’t even have to stop here. What have I done with all of my test juice? I made frozen juice pops.
