Sure, you can get through your day, but you may not be able to perform to the best of your ability.
And juicing allows you to pack a lot of fruit and vegetables into a delicious, healthy drink that is filled with all of these must-have nutrients. Choosing the absolute best kind of juicer will lead you to expensive models, which have you second-guessing your choice because you’re not sure which model provides the most bang for your buck.
A few of the key ways you can compare the different types of expensive juicers are:
- Feeding Tube Size: The larger the feeding tube, the less you have to prep the food for juicing. Wide-mouth models are available with 3” tubes, which will more than suffice.
- Speeds: Most models on our list do not include speed settings, but faster speeds do allow for faster juicing. The only drawback is that faster speeds generate more heat, so more nutrients are lost to oxidation.
- Holding Container: If you want to juice a lot of foods at one time, a larger holding container is a must. The same can be said for pulp containers, too.
Keep these three features in mind when browsing for the best juicer for you.
Our Top Picks for the Best, Most Expensive Juicer
Kuvings Whole Slow Juicer B6000SR Review – Kuving’s B6000SR is expensive but it’s worth every penny to a juicing fanatic. This model is the first wide-mouth slow juicer that is so safe, it can even be used by kids.
Perfect for larger families and bigger produce, the 3” feeding tube allows you to juice faster and more efficiently – minus prepping the produce. A drip-free cap keeps cleanup to a minimum, and this model juices produce slowly so that all of those good-for-you vitamins stay intact.
Cleaning tools are included as well as a blank strainer to make frozen treats. From leafy greens to apples and frozen drinks, this is a juicer that can do it all.
Kuvings NS-950 Silent Upright Masticating Juicer Review – The NS-950 by Kuvings is another slow juicing model that uses masticating technology to juice fruits quietly and effectively. Special attention was used when making this model to eliminate the oxidation of food and preserve nutrients. Juicing occurs at just 80 RPM as a result.
BPA-free components are used on all parts that touch the food, too.
A two-step safety system guarantees safety, and a cleaning tool further makes this juicer a breeze to use. The pulp ejection system allows for continuous juicing thanks to the reverse mechanism, which eliminates any clogs and jams that may occur.
Made with GE Ultem materials, this model is 8 times stronger than other plastics.
Kuvings Whole Slow Juicer Combo Pack 3 Review – The combo pack from Kuvings includes the B6000S – it’s a lot like our first pick – but it also includes a lot of extras to help you get started. A folding drain rack is included as well as a nut milk bag and a juicing e-book filled with recipes.
Even a cocodrill coconut tool is included.
Offering slow masticating technology, this model delivers nutrient-filled juice, and low noise and vibration production. A 3″ wide feeder tube is provided for bigger produce, and prep time is reduced by as much as 40%.
This is a great model for first-time juicers because it includes so many extras.
Tribest Green Star Elite GSE-5000 Jumbo Review – The Tribest Green Star Elite is a cold press juicer, meaning it’s able to preserve the maximum amount of nutrients possible when juicing. And its unique design allows for automatic pulp ejection, and a quick and easy cleanup.
Pressure adjustments allow you to juice harder fruits and vegetables, while the built-in safety mechanism allows the juicer to last for years without premature wear.
Simple and easy to use, this juicer is the right choice for extraction efficiency, as it allows for maximum juice production with the least pulp left behind. With high-quality construction, this model is backed by a 12-year warranty and is one of the best juicers in the mid to high price range.
Breville BJE820XL Juice Fountain Duo Dual Disc Juicer Review – The Breville BJE820XL teeters on the expensive side with a price that is on te high side of mid-range, but this model packs a lot of great features, too. A puree disc design allows you to juice soft fruits – including bananas – and there are 5 speed settings to maximize your juice production.
A powerful 1200-watt motor is included, too.
The feeding tube offers a 3” width for larger produce to be put right into the juicer, while the heavy die-cast body ensures this model is long-lasting. The safety arm locks into place to prevent accidents, and the juicing jug can hold 1.2 liters of juice.
Buyer’s Guide – How to Find the Best Type of Juicer for You
You’re not about to spend a significant amount on a juicer without knowing which one is the best choice for you – no one can blame you. And with a little help, you’ll be able to find one that is able to meet your needs perfectly.
A few of the key things to look for in the best juicer are:
- Price: Make a budget and stick to it. You’ll find that there are very expensive models that are meant for commercial use, and really won’t be the best option for you. Spend your money wisely by making a budget – seriously.
- Type: The type of extraction technology is very important. Cold press models work to press the juice out through squeezing. Masticating juicers will use a single gear and a very slow process to break down the food to extract more juice, keep nutrients intact and produce a very dry pulp. Centrifugal models are the most popular because they’re very cheap, but these models produce immense heat, which degrades the nutrients in the food.
- Size: More than likely, you’ll want a juicer that can be placed on your countertop and kept in the corner when not in use. Again, look at the size of the model to determine if it’s a good fit for you. Commercial models are often big and provide more juicing capacity, but trying to fit these models on a residential countertop is difficult without taking up all of your counter space.
Take your time, look at all of the features offered and don’t rush into a model that won’t meet your needs.
