There are several juicers out there from various companies, but the brand boils down to one thing: Is it Masticating or Centrifugal? Did I lose you in the jargon? I am about to bring you up to speed. Masticating juicers extract the juice by squeezing out of the fruit so that the final product is free from the pulp. Centrifugal juicers (which are our focal concern on this review) slice the fruits on a chamber that contains razor-sharp blades then spins them round until all the juice is extracted.
Centrifugal Juicer Reviews
1. Breville JE98XL Juice Fountain 850-Watt Juice Extractor
Breville JE98XL works fast (extracts a glass of juice in only 5 seconds). The one-liter jug has a wide chute from which you can feed a whole lot of fruits (about 3 inches wide) to produce some as much juice as you need.
You can even feed a whole apple into it! It is made of steel, durable, solid stainless steel. You could have this baby for years and at such a pocket-friendly price!
The blades are razor-sharp, which explains its ability to work at the speed mentioned earlier. You asked about the type of fruits that the Breville JE98XL could handle? The more appropriate question would be the kind that it cannot handle, and the answer is ‘none.’
The 850 wattage ensures that this juicer not only works fast but also that it chops the fruits thoroughly and that it milks them of all the juice they have. The froth and pulp chambers isolate your smooth juice from the roughage so that you are only left with the healthiest juice.
Now, for the best part yet; the Breville is dishwasher friendly, folks! Did you hear that? That separation business where you had to disassemble the parts to wash them by hand is so yesterday.
Down Sides of the Breville JE98XL Juicer
Sadly, the Breville JE98XL juicer does not do well with green leafy vegetables. Some people also complain about the chute saying that the size of it spits smaller fruits out if you do not close it fast enough. (For most people, the size is an upside).
2. Hamilton Beach 67650H Pro Juice Extractor
The Hamilton Beach 67650H Pro centrifugal juicer amazes me by the size of its spout. You can pour out juice, with precision, in just about any size of glass once you are done juicing. The 3-inch chute ensures that all your fruits fit it nicely without requiring too much prep time.
Its 1.1 horsepower motor gives it the ability to crush those apples as though they were bananas. No fruit is too tough for Hamilton Beach. This juicer also features a large enough pulp bin to save you the trips to the dustbin.
I love a good bargain, don’t you? This juicer is made of die-cast material that does not break or chip. You can let your 5-year old help if it makes them feel all so grown because they pose no harm to the 600 ml jug.
Cons of the Hamilton Beach
Weight – It weighs 10 pounds, which is no mean feat. On retrospect, its weight keeps it grounded when juicing.
Leafy Vegetables – This juicer works excellently with fruits but is not so good with vegetables. It only extracts up to 50% juice. Interestingly, it extracts more juice from the fruits than most juicers in the market.
3. Nutri-Stahl Juicer Machine
Are those beets and carrots for your juice? Perfect choice for this model! It has the ideal speed capacity (700 watts) to handle that kind of grinding. It also ensures no wastage for your food by extracting every possible amount of juice from your hard vegetables and fruits.
It cleans well in the dishwasher. All you have to do is disengage parts that connect to power and place it on the top shelf of your dishwasher then go back to your book. It is that simple!
Do you find prepping the fruits time wasting? So do I. The large opening (72 mm) on the Nutri-Stahl Juicer ensures that you do not have to spend valuable time chopping fruits and vegetables into tiny pieces. It can fit whole apples and oranges without straining.
It has an impressive speed (22,000 RPM), with the dual speed settings to help it handle both fruits and vegetables appropriately. The Nutri Stahl Juicer not only has an enormous capacity to manage the juice, but it also has a large bin to collect the pulp so that you limit your trips to dispose of it. It also comes with a high-quality 1.5-pint container for collecting your juice.
4. Jason Vale Fusion Juicer
The stainless steel blade on this Jason Vale centrifugal juicer is so sharp that it slices up the hardest vegetables and fruits (beets, carrots, and coconuts) quite fast (5 seconds tops). Do you love almonds? Throw them in too! You can even make some whole almond milk.
The pout for letting out the juice is designed better than in most juicers (small enough to avoid spills and broad enough to let out the fluids without a fuss).
Allow me to be vain (even the kitchen needs beautiful ware, right?). The Jason Vale Fusion Juicer, only available in white is a majestic piece of art that could upgrade any kitchen.
It has a wide chute that saves you crucial prep time. It is a higher performer with a 3600 RPM. Surprisingly, it is whisper-quiet, which would be unexpected given its high speed.
The good Jason Vale not only wants you to have a juicer. It also includes a blender and a 6-week recipe book to kick-start your fitness journey. Isn’t that great?
Cons Of The Jason Vale Fusion Juicer
While the speed is impressive, the pulp bin is quite small, which leaves you no choice, but to empty it quite often. The jug is also quite small (500 ml), which makes it more appealing for single users as opposed to families.
5. Cuisinart CJE-1000 Die-Cast Juice Extractor
This 5-speed, 1000-watt bad boy is one of the fastest juicers you will find on the market. It only needs 5 seconds to turn your fruits and vegetable into juice. It had a dial with a blue LED light to let you know the status of your process. It is made of such durable material that you are probably going to pass it on to your child at some point.
It has a Foam-reducing filter and a 2-liter pulp bin hat reduces the trips you have to make for the dustbin. It also hastens your juicing. It has a 1-quart pitcher to collect the juice.
Worried about cleaning it? It has detachable parts that are dishwasher friendly. It comes complete with a special brush to make the cleaning even easier. The manufacturers give you a 3-year warranty when you buy this juicer. How’s that for faith in their product?
The downside of the Cuisinart CJE-1000 Die-Cast Juice Extractor
It is pricier than most centrifugal juicers in the market. It more than makes up for this by being super fast and efficient in extraction.
6. Jack Lalanne’s JLSS Power Juicer Deluxe Stainless-Steel Electric Juicer
Jack LaLanne’s stainless steel power juicer has a spout that makes you want to buy it and take it home immediately; drip-free! No more messing the kitchen counter with escaping spills from your colorful carrot and beet juice. The sturdy handle makes this 14 x 16 x 12 inches, 12-pound beautiful monster easy to carry.
Its high-performing 3,600-RPM induction motor comes with a lifetime warranty (that is special). With that kind of power, you would expect it to turn your house into a stadium of sorts due to the noise. Wrong, it works quietly like the boss it is. The blades are sharp enough to chop fruits and tough vegetables into submission thoroughly.
The detachable pulp bin is large enough to ensure that you do not spend your day juicing, while the chute is wide enough for you to throw in large chunks of fruits and vegetables without first reducing them to tiny pieces. This juicer is dishwasher friendly.
Cons of the Jack LaLanne’s JLSS Power Juicer
It is quite costly if you compare it to other juicers. However, its powerful blend (that works wonders with hard vegetable) makes the cost worth it. It also does not come with a cleaning brush, though that can be bought in the stores.
7. Gourmia GJ-750 Centrifugal Juicer 850W Juice Extractor
You asked for a quieter, but powerful juicer and the manufacturers heard you. The Gourmia GJ-750 has multiple power settings that give you the autonomy to juice both fruits and vegetables in seconds. The operation is noiseless too!
The chute is wide enough to accommodate whole fruits and save you the prepping time. As for pulp, the two-liter pulp tank ensures a smooth operation. When you are done, you can let the juice out the drip-free spout at the base of the juicer.
The exterior of the Gourmia GJ-750 is majestic and durable, so you can let your eager little ones help you juice (start them early). And here is the part that you have been waiting for (I know I was); this juicer is dishwasher friendly. All its parts are detachable and easy to clean.
Shortcomings of Gourmia GJ-750
It works well with fruits but not so well with hard vegetables such as carrots, ginger, and beets.
8. Kuvings NJ9500 Centrifugal Juice Extractor
Just as well, I am a lover of freshly squeezed juices because this mean machine makes some delicious froth-less goodness. It works well with hard vegetables due to its 350-watt motor. The blades are stainless steel, removing any doubt of rust.
Its broad chute saves you time, and the pulp container is just large enough so that the pulp does not interfere with the flow of your work. The spout is unique and makes for easy pouring.
Cons of the Kuvings Centrifugal Juicer
It is not dishwasher friendly. You have to wash the pieces out one by one with water and soap. Luckily, it comes with a manual to guide you.
It is pricier for an 350-watt centrifugal juicer.
9. SKG Stainless Steel Wide Mouth Juice Extractor
How do you like a month free trial? That is what you get when you buy this baby. Take it home and give it a free try-out for up to a month. If it does not meet your expectations, feel free to return it to Amazon. I know I like that deal.
The juicer is quite powerful, with a 22,000-RPM 450W motor, which has dual settings to ensure that you are sorted for both vegetables and fruits. The 65mm chute allows you to pop your vegetable and fruits in without dicing them into tiny pieces.
The stainless steel material makes it endure for as long as you can have it. Do not get me started on the spout. Okay, the spout is slim and cylindrical to allow your drink to trickle down without creating any mess.
Cons of the SKG Premium 22,000 Juicer
The juice container is only one liter, which is ideal for a couple but not so for a family.
10. Jamba Appliances 67901 Centrifugal Juice Extractor
The color of Jamba 67901 Juice Extractor sets it aside from the rest. It has a sturdy handle and a wide 3.5-inch chute that eliminates chopping. It has a 2-speed 1000-watt motor for faster chopping and smooth results. It has a 3-liter pitcher to ensure that you keep juicer with no distractions. It comes with a 5-year warranty. The detachable parts are dishwasher friendly.
Cons of the Jamba Juicer
It is quite heavy, weighing in at 16 pounds. But then again, what do you expect from a massive centrifugal performer like the Jamba?
I have been juicing for eons. My father owned a food store, and we packed fresh fruit juices for sale. I have owned my fair share of juicers, and I have to say that the Breville JE98XL, Jamba Centrifugal Juicer, and Cuisinart CJE-1000 are dear to me. I have owned at least five on this list for years (I took over my dad’s business).
While I admit that most juicers do not do very well with green leafy vegetables, they hold their own with hard vegetables. Most of my clients go for carrot, beets, and ginger for their nutritional factor and my juicers (in the list above) perform quite well. Juicing is life! Invest in a centrifugal juicer (or two) and start the journey towards a healthier you.
