Best Juicers of 2022

Fresh juice: It’s a smart way to start the morning and great for a midday boost. (And, of course, delicious when mixed with some champagne.) But regularly paying big bucks for something you could easily make at home? Not so smart. So juice lovers, assemble: We’ve rounded up the best juicers on the market for your needs. It’s time to upgrade your kitchen and save a hefty chunk of change in the long run.  

Is a juice machine worth it? 

If you buy a lot of fresh juice, or you’re trying to add more veggies into your diet, a juice machine is totally worth it. In New York City, for example, the average cold-pressed juice costs $9.75. If you were to buy one juice a day? That’s a tab of $3,459 a year. On juice. With a juice machine, you can stock up on fruits and add in your daily serving of veggies for a fraction of the cost. Now all you have to do is find the right juice machine for you. 

What's the difference between cold-pressed juicers and standard juicers? 

There’s a big one. A standard juicer — or centrifugal juicer — blends your ingredients by using high-speed spinning blades and a strainer to separate the juice from the pulp. This method creates a lot of heat, which causes your ingredients to oxidize and lose a lot of the nutrients, enzymes, and minerals that are naturally in ’em. Centrifugal juicers are usually cheaper, faster, and smaller than cold-press juicers. 

Cold-press juicers use completely different technology. Instead of a spinning blade, these juicers crush and grind fruits and vegetables with an auger in order to extract their juice. Because of the lack of heat, ingredients retain more of their nutrients. The catch: Cold-press juicers take longer and are usually bulkier thanks to their augers. 


Cold-press juicers 


A cold-press juicer that won’t take up space… 

Addicted to cold-pressed juice but your tiny kitchen can’t afford to accommodate a bulky machine? This compact cold-press juicer makes nutrient-rich juice from your favorite fruits and veggies while taking up virtually no space. Want to switch it up a bit?

Slow Juicers


A slow juicer for squeezing out every last bit of juice… 

Long gone are the days of wet pulp. This juicer’s low-speed auger — the plastic piece that crushes your fruits and veggies — will squeeze every last bit of juice, leaving you with bone-dry pulp. Its auger and strainer are eight times more durable than traditional plastics, so you can keep juicing for years to come. The compact design is a win for limited counter space (and we’re partial to its chic pastel color options).
