We lab test and review the latest juicer models from brands like Breville, Kuvings, Oscar, Hurom and Sunbeam to help you find the best one for you.
Our test covers centrifugal and non-centrifugal juicers – i.e. fast and slow (or cold press) juicers.
Our expert testers give every juicer a thorough workout to help find the models that:
We also give you good and bad points for each model, as well as member-rated reliability scores for many brands, and provide the truth about nutrient extraction. And our Recommended rating will help you see quickly which models came out on top.
Our buying guide explains more about nutrition and juicer types, and you can also discover our members' juicer reliability results.

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.
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%).

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.
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.

We measure how noisy juicers are on the fastest setting. A typical conversation is 60dB, city traffic is measured at around 80dB.
The higher the yield score, the more juice we could extract from the fruit or veg.
The amount of carrot juice produced from 1kg of carrots and weighed in grams (similar to ml equivalent)
The amount of apple juice produced from 1kg of apples and weighed in grams (similar to ml equivalent).
The amount of orange juice produced from 1kg of oranges and weighed in grams (similar to ml equivalent).
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.
