Fast juicers pulverise fruit and veg at high speeds, using centrifugal force to separate the pulp. Slow juicers (cold press) crush the fruit or veg then separate the pulp.
Ease of use score
We test each model to find how easy it is to use. The ease of use score is based on general ease of juicing and how small the pieces have to be to fit into the chute (50%), ease of assembly/disassembly (25%), and ease of cleaning (25%).

Number of speeds
Depends on juicer type. For fast juicers, multiple speeds are ideal: high for juicing hard fruit/veg and low for softer fruit/veg. For slow juicers, a reverse function is handy for unclogging fruit/veg.
Juice jug capacity (mL)
A 1000ml jug can accommodate a decent amount of juice. If there's no jug, ensure the spout can fit over a decent sized jug.

How heavy the juicer was when we weighed it, minus the jug.
enter value/s in increments of i between 2 and 18
Noise level (dBA)
We measure how noisy juicers are on the fastest setting. A typical conversation is 60dB, city traffic is measured at around 80dB.
enter value/s in increments of i between 46 and 81
The higher the yield score, the more juice we could extract from the fruit or veg.

Carrot juice yield (g)
The amount of carrot juice produced from 1kg of carrots and weighed in grams (similar to ml equivalent)
enter value/s in increments of i between 265 and 606
Apple juice yield (g)
The amount of apple juice produced from 1kg of apples and weighed in grams (similar to ml equivalent).
enter value/s in increments of i between 427 and 845
Orange juice yield (g)
The amount of orange juice produced from 1kg of oranges and weighed in grams (similar to ml equivalent).
enter value/s in increments of i between 547 and 796
Green juice yield (g)
The amount of green juice made from a total of 1kg of produce, which included english spinach, pear, cucumber, kiwi fruit, celery, and mint. The quantity of each individual food item was also measured and remained consistent for each product tested. Expressed as grams (similar to ml equivalent).

A Similar model is identical in most aspects except for a few. This means that a majority of its test results are identical so you can reasonably expect to get the same results from the model we tested, but for those aspects which aren't identical, we'll note these as "Not Tested" in the Compare tables.
A Tested model refers to a model that is still current and available in the Australian market. You should be able to order this model through your local retailer, or find it online.
These models can't be found in retailers or online or are no longer manufactured. You may still find these models on second hand websites, or in second hand dealers. Test methods may change over time, so criteria which can't be directly compared will contain an N/A.
An Identical model is exactly that. Performance characteristics will be identical and the only difference will be something trivial such as colour, which won't have an impact on performance.
These are models we haven't yet tested but that are available.
