Deciding on the best juicer is a daunting task. One needs to consider aspects like versatility, convenience of operation, clean-up, quietness, footprint etc. A lot of the times, your lifestyle will decide the juicer that is right for you. If you’re into quick juicing because of a busy lifestyle, a centrifugal juicer would be your best bet. However, if you’re very particular about your juicer’s efficiency and want to see that pulp come out bone-dry, a masticating juicer might be more suitable. Again, if you’re only into citrus fruit juice, you may consider ditching a regular juicer altogether and going for a citrus juicer instead.

For me, the most important criterion in choosing a juicer, is power. Ease-of-use and compactness are important, but secondary features. Power does not necessarily mean high wattage. There are plenty of juicers that boast a variety of user-friendly features, but start to wheeze and groan if you stress them even the slightest. A powerful juicer is one that feels robust, and doesn’t buckle under pressure. It should be sturdy, and able to juice with reasonable ease. With that in mind, I’ve compiled a list of juicers that I think offer good combinations of power and convenience.

Omega J8004 Nutrition Center Commercial Masticating Juicer

Omega J8004 Nutrition Center Commercial Masticating Juicer, White

The Omega Nutrition Centers are ideally suited for homes, thanks to their small size and quiet operation. The J8004 uses a GE Ultem augur which is much stronger than the melamine ones used in the J8003 and J8005. The J8004’s white finish makes it $40 cheaper than the black-and-chrome J8006.

The J8004 is the juicer to get if you like quiet appliances. It has a slow augur speed (80 rpm) and can even juice leafy greens. Fond of wheat grass? The J8004 is the juicer for you. The pulp is quite dry the first time around and does not need to be fed in repeatedly.

In many ways, the J8004 is the ideal home juicer. It’s quiet, thanks to the slow augur mechanism. It is compact, which is a big plus point if you have a cramped kitchen counter top. It’s multifunctional, and can do some basic food processing as well, like making nut butter, pasta and baby food. It even grinds coffee beans. As a further deal-sweetener, the guys at Omega have thrown in a 15-year warranty with the J8004.

Super Angel 5500 Stainless-Steel Living Juice Extractor

Super Angel 5500 Stainless-Steel Living Juice Extractor

Super Angel 5500 Stainless-Steel Living Juice Extractor

The Super Angel is the only triturating (twin-augur) juicer on this list. This one basically does it all. It can juice hard fruit, soft fruit, hard and fibrous vegetables (such as celery), leafy greens and wheat grass. The Super Angel has many highlights. It is made entirely of high-grade stainless steel, making it easy to clean. It features a twin impeller press system that rotates at a speed of 86 rpm for maximum nutrition. It has a unique cooling system with an overheat sensor. It incorporates a 3-stage screening process that effectively removes any lingering pulp, resulting in pure, consistent juice every time. The best feature, however, is the Reverse Action switch which is great for clearing blockages.

The Super Angel excels at juicing greens. It may well be the best wheat grass juicer in the market. The key to good wheat grass juicing is efficiency. With the Super Angel, the residual pulp always turns out extremely dry, no matter what you’re juicing. Apart from regular juice extraction, the Super Angel also makes soy milk, nut butter and tofu.

At over $1000, the Super Angel is also the most expensive juicer on this list. That being said, I still give it a big thumbs up because of the superior quality of the juice it produces. Even with the most ordinary items, such as carrots, you will be able to tell the difference. The juice coming out of the Super Angel will be deeper in color, and richer in taste and texture. Highly recommended if you’re looking for a one-time-buy juicer that will ensure healthy and hassle-free juicing for a long, long time to come.

Breville BJE510XL Ikon 900-Watt Variable-Speed Juice Extractor

For ease-of-use, few juicers can beat the Ikon. It has a 5-speed (6500 rpm to 12500 rpm) 900-Watt motor that is versatile enough for any kind of juicing. The most outstanding feature, however, is the built-in sensor that automatically increases power to the cutting disc when I increase the load. The centrifugal design is not effective with very soft foods such as berries and leafy greens, and that is the one area where the Ikon disappoints. Even at its slowest speed (6500 rpm), the Ikon is much too fast for such items. Hard items like carrots can be juiced effectively in the Ikon, the pulp being quite dry. Most users should find the Ikon an easy-to-operate juicer highly suited for home use. It assembles and disassembles in seconds, and the stainless-steel exterior cleans easy, aside from looking great.

Champion Commercial Juicer G5-PG-710

Champion Commercial Juicer G5-PG-710 - BLACK MODEL (MAR-48C)

Champion Commercial Juicer G5-PG-710 – BLACK MODEL (MAR-48C)

The brand that everyone trusts, and with good reason. Champion juicers have been around for quite some time now, and offer excellent masticating-type juicing products. The Champion Commercial Juicer is a heavy-grade juicer. If you don’t plan on extracting more than 12 ounces of juice a day, you should look elsewhere. There is a Champion Household juicer available as well, but the commercial model is the one I prefer, for obvious reasons. 650 Watts on a masticating juicer is something you don’t see everyday.

The Champion is a heavy unit. I recommend finding a permanent place for it on the kitchen counter, so you don’t have to move it around all the time. Don’t worry, clean-up is quite easy and should take about 3 to 5 minutes tops. High-grade polymers with generous touches of stainless-steel have gone into the construction of the Champion Commercial Juicer, making it one of the most durable juicers in the market. It’s quite versatile and can juice many soft items (no wheatgrass, though). The icing on the cake? It comes with an additional blank screen (apart from the regular juicing one) that is useful for making a variety of nut butters and sorbets.

Tribest Citristar Electric Citrus Juicer

The Tribest Citristar is a citrus juicer – nothing more, nothing less. It has a spinning ream that extracts the pulp from half-cut citrus fruit such as limes and oranges. The seeds are neatly caught by the screen, and clear juice is allowed to pass through. The juicing cone fits all sizes of citrus fruit, from limes to grapefruit.

The Citristar features an automatic start/stop mechanism. Basically, it starts the moment you press the fruit down on the ream. Release the pressure, and it’ll stop. No hassles, whatsoever. What sets the Citristar apart from other citrus juicers, is its durability. It doesn’t groan under pressure, unlike other reamers. It’s very quiet, and won’t disturb the household. The Tribest Citristar makes this list because it does what it claims to do, and does it well. If you like a glass of freshly squeezed citrus in the mornings, the Citristar is a highly recommended and surprisingly affordable citrus juicer.
