Best Juicer on the Market 2015
In an effort to live a healthier life, you decide to start juicing after hearing of all its health benefits. After all, it’s hard to argue against fresh, pure fruit and vegetable juice. Not wanting to drop hundreds of dollars on a juicer you might not use, you shop around at your local thrift store for a reliable little juicer and fall in love with juicing after your first glass. Months pass, and you decide to step up your juicing experience by investing in a quality juicer. Nothing but the best will do, but with each company claiming their unit is the best, how can you know which juicer is the best on the market for 2015? Well, it all depends on whether you’re looking for a masticating or centrifugal juicer, or if you just want the most value for your dollar. Here’s a list of the four best juicers of 2015.
Breville JE98XL Juice Fountain Plus
Breville has become a titan in the juicing industry, and with good reason. The JE98XL is a centrifugal juicer, meaning it spins the pulp fast enough to extract the nutrient-rich juices. Like all other Breville units, this one is hardy and durable. It comes with an 850-watt motor that operates on two speeds: one for soft fruits like oranges, and a higher setting for tough, stringy vegetables like kale. The extra wide opening is a nice perk that reduces prep time by letting you toss in whole fruits/vegetables. What’s more is that this machine can pour a cup of juice in just 5 seconds, talk about speed! Clean up for this unit is straightforward and shouldn’t take more than five minutes, and everything is dishwasher friendly.
Cuisinart sure didn’t cut any corners on this centrifugal juicer. This bad boy comes equipped with a 5-speed, 1000-watt motor that is sure to extract every last drop of juice from even the toughest vegetables. Your first thought is that such a powerful motor is going to sound like a freight train, but this juicer is remarkably quiet. Quiet enough that you could have a midnight juicing party without waking the neighbors. The CJE-1000 is aesthetically pleasing as well, complete with a stainless steel body and a digital LED interface. This model is the most affordable one on this list, and definitely the best bang for your buck.
Omega J8006 Nutrition Center Juicer
This unit by Omega is sleek, modern, user friendly, and not hard on the eyes at all. The J8006 is a masticating juicer, meaning it grinds and squeezes your fruits and vegetables, giving your juice a longer shelf-life. This model’s motor spins at 80 RPMs. While this may seem low, masticating juicers rely on slow revolutions to prevent clogging and preserve nutrients. Its low RPM makes this juicer incredibly quiet, perfect for early morning juicing sessions. Juicing for two? Not a problem, the J8006 comes with an auto pulp-ejection function for continuous juicing. Prep time tends to be slower on masticating juicers, but clean-up on this machine is a breeze. On top of it all, Omega backs this unit with a 15-year warranty.
Breville BJS600XL Fountain Crush
A juicing titan like Breville doesn’t just stick to one type of juicer, the quality of their products applies to masticating juicers like the BJS600XL. The BJS600XL is a machine best suited for veteran juicers. This unit comes with a quiet 240-watt motor that first grinds, then squeezes juice out to preserve as many nutrients as possible. This juicer is compact and fits nicely on your counter without taking up much space. One problem many people run into with juicers is frequent clogging. With the direction control feature on this unit, fruits and vegetables can be easily dislodged. Clean up is easy and takes a few minutes, but we wouldn’t advise washing this unit in a dishwasher.
The difference between a cheap juicer and a quality juicer is day and night. A bad juicer may even turn you away from juicing altogether. Buying a juicer from this list may put a temporary dent in your wallet, but with a great one you can truly experience the wonderful world of juicing.
