Best juicers: squeeze more out of your five a day

The best juicers you can buy are right here – health kick or because you don't want to get messy, whatever the reason, you can’t beat a freshly squeezed orange juice

Best juicer: Dualit Juice Extractor

In the market for the best juicer you can buy? Whether you’re inventive or prefer to stick to the classic combinations, there’s no doubt that a juicer is an amazing way to pack in as many of your five-a-day as possible. From detox juices to carrot juices and even the current trend, celery juice, there's no fruit or veg you can't liquidise in the right juicer machine.

While keeping the pulp in when making a juice drink is in-line with 'doctor's orders' as it holds many of the nutrients, a juicer does the opposite, and separates the fibre from the fruit and veg to ensure a smoother result. However, it's a different ball game entirely if you simply just don't like juice with bits in, or you're using non-organic fruit or veg which will contain residues of agrochemicals. In that case, a juicer is ideal, as it'll separate those pesticides and herbicides from the finished product so that you don't consume them.

How to buy the best juicer

Price

Juicers, because of their advanced technology, lean a little (or a lot) towards the expensive side. Be careful to consider style and performance when you select the best juicer for you. 

Power

High power doesn't necessarily mean better; some juicers may have several power settings, which is great if you're going to be using your juicer a lot and experimenting with different ingredients; that said, most juicers worth their salt should be able to handle even tough veg, such as raw carrots. 

Size

How much space do you have on your worktop or in your cupboard for a juicer? Some can be bulky so check the proportions when considering capacity.

Capacity

It's worth considering how much juice you're going to be making at one time, whether it be one glass for yourself in the morning or a whole jug to serve the family. Can the juicer you're considering cope with family-sized portions? For smaller households, juicers such as the Braun Multiquick 5 Juicer are ideal for popping pieces of fruit through the juicer one at a time.

Is it dishwasher-safe? 

It can be a fiddle to clean a juicer, so those with a dishwasher will be happy to know that the majority of juicers have dishwasher-safe parts, but always check before you buy. 

Centrifugal force or mastication? 

Probably not your first thought, but it's worth knowing if you want to ensure you’re left with a silky smooth juice to have alongside your morning bowl of cereal. Our list features two types of juicer - one that uses centrifugal force (think back to your science lessons on this one guys) and one that uses mastication – that’s mimicking the way our teeth chew to you and us.

For maximum juice and minimal fuss, there's no other option than the Dualit Juice Extractor. You can fit an entire apple down the 85mm extra large feeding tube, and the two pre-programmed speed settings let you select the speed for hard or soft fruit or veg. Although the machine itself is big, it's for good reason; the pulp container can hold 2.2 litres of liquid so you can continuously juice without having to change it repeatedly, and it has a 'soft start' motor to reduce wear and tear, in turn prolonging your juicer's life. The best part, is that all of the pieces are dishwasher-friendly, meaning there's minimal washing up, and you can enjoy your juice straight away. We think this is the best juicer you can spend your money on.

Best juicer for speed: Philips Advanced Centrifugal Juicer

3. Philips Advanced Centrifugal Juicer

Best juicer for speed: a pro gadget optimised for the ultimate juicing performance

Specifications
Best for: Speed juicing
Power: 1200W
Size: 1ltr
Dishwasher safe: No
Centrifugal or Masticating: Centrifugal
Reasons to buy
+ Choose the texture of your juice + QuickClean technology makes it easy to clean 
Reasons to avoid
- Takes up a large amount of cupboard space 

This centrifugal juicer neatly separates the juice from the pulp, extracting all the elements you need for a nutritional drink. With this machine, you can manage how much pulp remains in your juice, changing it up from clear juice to a thicker consistency that's more like a smoothie. It's another design with a usefully large feeding tube, meaning you can pop in whole apples (stalks removed) and other large veg, such as whole beetroot, allowing for time-effective juicing. It's dishwasher-safe, too, although somewhat bulky, so we think this is the best juicer for larger or family-sized kitchens.

Best juicer for extracting nutrients: ElectriQ HSL600 Horizontal Slow Masticating Juicer

4. ElectriQ HSL600 Horizontal Slow Masticating Juicer

Best juicer for extracting nutrients: a gentler way of making your morning juice

Specifications
Best for: Extracting nutrients
Power: 150W
Size: 1ltr
Dishwasher safe: No
Centrifugal or Masticating: Masticating
Reasons to buy
+ Retains more nutrients than centrifugal machines + Less likely to form froth 
Reasons to avoid
- Slow- Very big

If you’re looking to get the most juice for the amount of fruit you put in, this juicer does the job nicely. While running slower than a centrifugal juicer, the way in which the device grinds and clenches the contents releases as much juice as possible without damaging the nutrients within it. If you like to juice wheatgrass and other fiddly ingredients like nuts, this machine does an efficient and quiet job of processing them. The kind of juice you create using a masticating juicer, for the juice pro, will have a slightly richer flavour and at this price, you really can’t go wrong.

Best budget juicer: Cookworks Whole Fruit Juicer

5. Cookworks Whole Fruit Juicer

Best budget juicer: an easy-to-use budget friendly juicer which will satisfy even the pickiest of pulp-haters

Specifications
Best for: Budget
Power: 700W
Size: 0.8ltrs
Dishwasher safe: No
Centrifugal or Masticating: Masticating
Reasons to buy
+Takes whole fruit+Has two different speeds
Reasons to avoid
-Doesn't like fruits with high starch or fibre content-Not dishwasher friendly

For those who are on a budget or can't see themselves digging out their juicer more than once or twice a month, this is easily the best juicer for you. You can throw whole fruit down the tube, as long as the skins you don't want to eat are removed, and it has two different settings: one for hard food and another for softer items. There's a removable 2.8 litre pulp container which is handily huge, meaning you won't have to keep emptying and changing it, and the best part is that it's easy to use. Our only complaint is that high starch or fibre content fruit or veg such as mangos and bananas are best left non-juiced, as the machine struggles with items which have low water content and it'll just clog the sieve, in turn making more of a cleaning job for you.
