Best Overall Juicer
Breville Multi-Speed BJE510XL
Versatile and easy to use with minimal preparation
Smooth, powerful motor turns out quality juice
The Breville Multi-Speed BJE510XL
won our Editors' Choice award thanks to its ease of use, compact footprint, high-quality performance, 5-settings for maximum processing of different types of produce, intelligent design and add-ons, and most of all, its smooth, creamy juice quality. While we didn't find too much of a difference between the Multi-Speed and the slightly less expensive Breville Plus JE200XL, ultimately its multiple speed settings and slightly easier set-up had us favoring this model instead. It makes juicing easy and fun, and also makes it easy to get into the habit. This is a key factor, as no one wants to use an appliance that's a pain to set-up, use, and clean. Its powerful motor will extract your juice in seconds, and while it's not a cheap investment at $200, if you are regularly buying retail juice at $6-10 a glass, this machine will quickly pay for itself.

Best Bang for the Buck
Hamilton Beach 67601A
Easy to assemble and clean up
Superior blade and motor
Light weight makes it unstable while in use
The Hamilton Beach 67601A
is a great deal. For $70 you get a powerful machine that topped our yield charts and still produced a decent quality glass of juice. It's not the least expensive model out there, but it hits the sweet spot of affordability and quality output - there's no point in buying a juicer, even a cheap one, if you aren't going to like the juice. It's a compact machine that takes up minimal storage space and requires very little food prep thanks to its wide feed chute and mouth. It does have a few tics, namely its loud operating noise and tendency to hop around your counter when in use, so if you think that might bother you then try out the Breville Compact BJE200XL instead for $100. Otherwise this is a great starter model for anyone who wants to try regular juicing without breaking the bank.

Top Pick for Masticating Juicer
Durable and stable
Food requires extra prep
Juicing takes longer than with other models
The Omega J8006
is hands down the most versatile machine we tested and it seemed to do everything well. From juicing to sorbets and pastas, this machine is a star. Low-speed compression juicing isn't for everyone - it takes more time and effort and it requires more food prep, but if you know this is the style of juicer you want, and you plan on juicing copious amounts of greens, then the Omega J8006 is the way to go. It's considerably cheaper than its competitors, like the Kuvings Whole Slow Juicer B6000S and the Omega VRT350, but does the same things just as well, if not better. It has a quiet and powerful motor, is easy to set-up and clean, and best of all, makes a great glass of juice. If you want to give slow juicing a try, this is a great choice that will more than pay for itself down the road.
