What is the Best Juicer for Home use?
When trying to adopt a healthy lifestyle, many people turn to juicing as a way of eating clean. Juicing is a tasty and fun way to put healthy food into your body. Juicing extracts the valuable nutrients from your fruits and vegetables and delivers it to you in an easy to drink form. With so many products available on the market, you’re probably asking yourself which one is the best to buy for home use. You definitely don’t to go any cheaper than necessary; those machines leave lots of liquid in the pulp and are a nightmare to clean. If you’re looking for information on quality juicers before you take the leap, look no further. We’ve crammed countless carrots and oranges into a variety of machines, and these four yielded the best results.
Breville is renowned for their juicers because they are strong, durable, and user friendly. This model’s main selling point is how easy it is to clean. Some have awkward nooks and crannies that make cleaning them a tedious effort. This unit is small with an emphasis on space efficiency, reducing the area you’ll have to clean. Don’t be fooled by its small size, this Breville has quite a little motor on it. This unit does a great job at getting every last drop from your fruits and vegetables, leaving the pulp dry as the pavement in the middle of July. The only downside is it may be a bit on the loud side, but not any louder than your traditional blender.

This unit is one of the most cost efficient models we demoed without sacrificing quality. The 67608A Big Mouth comes with an 800-watt motor that’s powerful enough to get the last drop from even the toughest of vegetables. As its name implies, the extra large mouth on the unit lets you fit whole foods to cut down on your prep time. It even comes with an extra pulp bin so you can juice your little heart out. Cleaning the unit is pretty straightforward and doesn’t take more than a few minutes; its dishwasher safe as well! We found that lining the pulp bin with a grocery bag eliminates a huge chunk of the cleaning process. All in all, this is a great product for those new to juicing.

The control dial lets you choose between five speeds, depending on how tough and fibrous your vegetables are.

The fine engineers at Breville managed to fit a powerful motor into a small, compact area so that it doesn’t take up much counter space. Having an efficient, compact design, this unit is fairly easy to clean, averaging about 3 minutes to completely clean. Combine this with the 3 inch mouth that reduces your prep time, and you have the perfect formula for a super efficient juicing machine. Like all Breville units, the BJE200XL is very durable and will last you several years.
