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.

Non-centrifugal (slow juicers) or centrifugal (fast juicers).
Ease of use is based on the general ease of juicing and how small the pieces have to be to fit into the chute (50%), the ease of assembly and disassembly (25%), and ease of cleaning (25%).

Slow juicers: A reverse feature is handy for unclogging it.
Fast juicers: Multiple speeds are ideal. High speed is good for juicing hard fruit/vegetables and low speed for softer fruit/vegetables.
The juice jug should be big enough to accommodate a large quantity of juice. If the juicer doesn't come with a juice jug, check that the spout is positioned to fit over a decent-sized jug.

Noise is measured 90cm up and 50cm away from the bench, on the fastest setting. The sound level will vary depending on type of fruit or vegetable being juiced.
The yield score reflects the amount of juice we managed to extract. (Expressed as an average percentage of the moisture content in the fruit or vegetable being juiced.)
The amount of carrot juice produced from 1kg of carrots (in grams)
The amount of apple juice (in grams) produced from 1kg of apples.
The amount of orange juice produced (in grams) from 1kg of oranges. Note that for each round of testing, the type of oranges we use may change depending on availability and seasonality, so there may be some slight differences in raw results. The yield score, however, is based on the expected result from that variety of orange.
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.
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.
