Juicers bring a bit of sunshine into your day. Why pay $3 for a bottle in the grocery case when you can make a fresh dose of vitamin C at home? The Viewpoints Reviewers’ Choice awards recognize the top juicers on the market, based solely on the product reviews we collect and publish daily on Viewpoints. Our reviews are written by ordinary juice lovers, not professional testers. These juicers all meet Viewpoints Reviewers’ Choice award eligibility and represent the top 11 percent of 73+ juicers reviewed on Viewpoints. The rest of your day is stressful. Get a juicer, and veg out.
Viewpoints recommends these two juicers as top choices:
Best Overall: Juicers
Breville Juice Fountain Multi-Speed BJE510XL ($200)
Rated 94 | 45+ reviews
The Breville Juice Fountain juicer might just have a brain of its own. This “smart juicer” chooses one of five speeds for more juice, less waste. With all the components dishwasher-safe, this Breville juicer is truly top overall. “Amazingly quiet,” says one reviewer who calls it “the dream machine.” Pulp it leaves behind is so dry, reviewers are amazed.
“I was shopping around for a very good deal, and this is exactly what I got! It is amazing; I really love it and recommend it to everyone. It is so easy to use, makes juice super quick … and a breeze to clean.”–russianira18, Reviewer since 2011
Best Value: Juicers
Hamilton Beach Big Mouth Pro Juice Extractor 67650 ($80)
Rated 87 | 63+ reviews
Where do we begin to praise this budget juicer? The Hamilton Beach Big Mouth Pro has a 1.1 horsepower motor that processes whole fruits and vegetables through an extra-wide feed chute. Reviewers especially like that it has helped them stay on track with health goals. We say buy one as a gift and one for yourself.
“I honestly feel that the Big Mouth Pro is just as good if not better than some of those more expensive juicers. It offers the same features as those others and is a fraction of the price!”–jesbrown, Reviewer since 2009

More Top Juicers
These juicers are also award winners! All six of these juicers meet the tough criteria for a Reviewers’ Choice award and are highly recommended:
Omega 8005 Nutrition Center Masticating Juicer ($260)
Don’t let this juicer scare you. The Omega 8005 has a horizontal pitch, typical of a masticating juicer, pushing pulp out the front while extracting juice on the bottom. “Best for greens,” it even makes pasta. This Omega is Viewpoints-rated at 93 based on 20+ reviews.
Breville promises 30 percent more juice in your glass with its “Elite” juicer, and it comes with an extra-large 3.2-quart pulp container. Indeed, the pulp is “very dry” confirms reviewers. They also call it “commercial-level quality.” Tops for design and durability, it’s Viewpoints-rated 92 based on 28+ reviews.
This juicer is ideal for “heavy use conditions,” claims Champion. Reviewers back it up. Even though “the price is high, it’s not junk.” Avid juicers will appreciate that this masticating juicer “works great every time.” It’s Viewpoints-rated 92 based on 15+ reviews.
A “no-nonsense” juicer, says Breville. In other words, the juicer is great for beginners and “health nuts.” For a reasonable price, you get Breville quality. Viewpoints-rated at 91 based on 27+ reviews, we agree that it’s an “easy way to add fruits and vegetables to your diet.”
If you are new to juicing, reviewers recommend this as an entry model to see whether juicing will become a healthy habit. “Very durable, never jams up,” says one reviewer. Viewpoints-rated at 90 based on 65+ reviews, we also hear it’s “less noisy.”
This award-winner is the mid-priced model in the Jack LaLanne line of power juicers. Its high score comes from its stability while in use. And then there’s the taste. “I’ve never had better grape or apple juice,” raves one reviewer. Viewpoints-rated at 86 based on 48+ reviews, it’s a favorite based on price + performance.
