Juicer reviews

We test 15 juicers including models from Breville, Sunbeam and Philips, and compare them with the NutriBullet for yield, ease of use, and nutrient extraction.

Last updated: 20th November 2014

Perplexed by all the claims made about cold press juicers, such as "preserves more nutrients, minerals and enzymes" and "the world's best juicer"? We test 15 slow (cold press) and fast juicers, priced from $80 to $699, to tell you:

  • what to buy
  • which one has the best yield
  • which are easy to use and clean
  • member-rated reliability scores for many brands
  • the truth about nutrient extraction.

See our report on juicer health claims for our comments on juice's nutritional content, any heating effect of fast juicers and how the NutriBullet compares.

Brands and models tested

Not just a juicer

Some juicers claim they can also be used for preparing other foods. The BioChef claims to make sorbet, baby foods, nut milks, smoothies and ice cream. The Healthstart says it can prepare nut butters, pasta and noodles, frozen desserts, soy milk, dressings, dips, breads and cookies, mince meat, juice wheat grass and grind – and even make sausages! The Hippocrates claims to crush grains, make ice-cream, and mince meat. The Oscar says it can mince meat and fish, slice vegetables, and crush ice. The Omega makes soy milk, and the Russell Hobbs says it's suitable for grains and nuts.
