9 best juicers for making fresh and healthy juice

Juicing can be a great way to get more fruit and veg into your diet. To do that effectively, you’ll need a juicer - here are the best products, as tried and recommended by Mumsnet users.

Best juicers

While blenders mix up juice and pulp, a juice extractor does exactly what it says on the tin: it extracts just the juice. It’s a delicious way to make healthy drinks for the whole family, whether you’re filling up with citrus fruits, loads of green veg or smoothies. It’s a great way to get your five-a-day in and will certainly be a treat for summer.

Thankfully, modern juicers have clever designs that mean you can get your all-important juice fix from a machine that’s affordable and low maintenance. But what’s the best juicer to buy? One Mumsnetter asked for a recommendation that “doesn’t make me swear when I clean it, nor cost the earth”. Well, your wish has been granted as we’ve rounded up the best juicers on the market, including products that have been tried, tested and rated by Mumsnetters.

To kit out your kitchens with the best products, we’ve got handy guides to the best microwaves, the best kettles, the best toasters, the best rice cookers, the best blenders and the best soup makers, all featuring real reviews from parents.

Best juicers at a glance

1. Best overall juicer: Magimix 18082 Juice Expert 3

Magimix 18082 Juice Expert 3

Price on writing: £238 | Buy now from Amazon

Key specs

Type: Masticating | Power: 760 watts | Speed: 1 setting | Attachments: Juice Filter XL, Extra Press XL, Citrus Press, 2x Citrus cones (large and small), lid with XL feeding tube | Warranty: 30-year motor guarantee, 3-year guarantee

What we like

  • Juices both fruit and veg

  • Easy to assemble and clean

  • Motor comes with a 30-year guarantee

What we don't like

  • Doesn’t include a juice jug

  • Quite pricey

  • Only one setting

Our verdict

If you’re after a masticating juicer (we describe the different types further down, if you’re new to this!), Magimix’s Juice Expert 3 is a great option. Because it’s masticating, it’s great for breaking down both fruit and vegetables to make juices, smoothies and plant-based milks, which is good to give your family a varied diet. It’s claimed that its cold press technology also helps retain more vitamins and minerals.

Despite its relatively small size, it's pretty nifty. Its extra large feed tube means you can juice whole fruits to get things done with less effort, and the Quiet Mark Accreditation means no extra noise to add to your household! Best of all, it’s easy to put together and dismantle as it stacks in three easy sections. This’ll make it easier to clean and reassemble - and we all know time is valuable when you’re a mum. All removable parts are dishwasher-safe too, however it’s worth rinsing them first.

2. Best budget juicer: Cookworks Spin Juicer

Cookworks Spin Juicer

Price on writing: £50 | Buy now from Argos

Key specs

Type: Centrifugal | Power: 700 Watts | Speed: 2 settings | Attachments: removable pulp container, removable stainless steel filter, removable stainless steel blades | Warranty: manufacturer's 1 year guarantee

What we like

  • Great price

  • Relatively small

  • Safety Locking handle

What we don't like

  • Some said it can be quite difficult to clean

Our verdict

For just £50, the Cookworks Juicer is a great option if you're looking for a budget juicer that does the job. It’s a centrifugal juicer so it will take large whole pieces of fruit, which means no precutting needed, saving you both time and effort. Two speed settings mean you can alternate between soft and hard fruits to mix up your concoctions according to each of your preferences (who’s betting every family wants something different…?)

The pulp container has a capacity of 1.5 litres and it will make up to one litre of juice: lots for all the fam. There’s a safety locking handle, making it safe to use with children (supervised, of course), and it’s smaller than others, weighing just 4.2kg, so won't take up too much kitchen space. Plus, the stainless steel filter and blades are all removable to make cleaning easier. That's a lot of features for its relatively small price tag.

3. Best juicer for beginners: Sage The Nutri Juicer Cold Plus

Sage The Nutri Juicer Cold Plus

Price on writing: £199 | Buy now from Amazon

Key specs

Type: Centrifugal | Power: 1300 Watts | Speed: 2 settings | Attachments: 2L Easy Seal Juice Jug with Froth Separator, Detachable Spout and Easy Cleaning Brush | Warranty: 2 Year Guarantee and 5 Year Motor Guarantee

What we like

  • Cold spin technology

  • 2-litre ‘seal and store’ jug

  • Extra-wide chute to juice whole fruits

What we don't like

  • Some reviewers say it’s quite big

Our verdict

Sage The Nutri Juicer is a two-speed centrifugal juicer from the Breville Group. One big benefit is that it comes with two-litre ‘seal and store' jug, which is ideal to store your juice in the fridge in large amounts so you don’t have to make new ones as often as you would with other juicers - great while you’re getting used to it - but there’s also a nozzle so you can juice straight into a glass if you prefer, which saves on washing up.

It also claims to have Cold Spin Technology which is designed to keep the juice cool while it’s being extracted. Manufacturers claim that this also protects the nutrients of your fruit and veg. The extra-wide chute means you can juice whole fruits - handy if you’re new to the juicing game.

4. Best multi-purpose juicer: Oscar Neo Juicer 1000

Oscar Neo Juicer 1000

Price on writing: £280 | Buy now from Amazon

Key specs

Type: Masticating and multi-purpose | Power: 200 Watt | Speed: Not specified | Attachments: Drum Attachment, Hopper; 6 x Mincing Nozzles for Noodles; Auger Screw; Juicing Strainer; Drum Cap; Food Pusher | Warranty: 20-year warranting on the motor and 10 years on parts to protect against manufacturing defects

What we like

  • Makes more than just juice, including ice cream and pasta!

  • Comes with a recipe book

  • Easy to store

What we don't like

  • Quite pricey

Our verdict

The Oscar Neo Juicer is far more than its name suggests. As well as juices, it can also be used to make ice cream, peanut butter, pasta, mince and hummus. A helpful all-rounder for a family kitchen! It comes with a recipe book for family inspo too - try them out together for fun, to really get your money’s worth.

It’s great to have a multi-purpose kitchen aid when space is at a premium - especially this one, as the Oscar Neo is really easy to store as it can be separated into three pieces. It comes with a huge 20-year warranty on the motor and 10 years on parts to protect against manufacturing defects.

5. Quickest juicer: Braun J700 Spin Juicer

Braun J700 Spin Juicer

Price on writing: £190 | Buy now from Amazon

Key specs

Type: Centrifugal | Power: 1000 Watts | Speeds: 2 settings | Attachments: Jug and foam separator | Warranty: Not specified

What we like

  • Glass of juice in 15 seconds

  • Foam separator included

  • Four-way safety system

What we don't like

  • Quite large (though deep and tall, rather than wide)

Our verdict

To do list as long as your arm? Well, you can still find time to juice with this centrifugal juicer from Braun which delivers a glass of juice within 15 seconds. At 1.25 litres, it’s a great size for most families too (it makes 1 litre per 1 minute). The removable jug with in-built foam separator is great if you prefer your juice without froth - handy for any fussy sippers in the family!

Like most centrifugal juicers, it has a large feeding chute – 75mm – so there’s no need to cut up fruit and veg before juicing, which saves yet more time. There’s also a four-way safety system, which automatically stops the motor in dangerous conditions, giving you peace of mind. This juicer is large but it’s deep and tall rather than wide, so it should fit on your worktop well. Thankfully the removable parts are dishwasher-safe and there’s an anti-drip system, making cleaning up easier.

6. Best juicer for greens: Omega Sana EUJ 707 Juicer

Omega Sana EUJ 707 Juicer

Price on writing: £439 | Buy now from Amazon

Key specs

Type: Masticating | Power: 200 Watts | Speeds: 2 settings | Attachments: 4 nozzles for food processing; 1L glass juice bowl with strainer top; XL pulp container; 2 juicing screens; 1 homogenising screen | Warranty: 10 years motor, 5 years part

What we like

  • Great for fibrous veg

  • Great attachments

  • Range of colours

What we don't like

  • Large (5kg) and less quick and quiet than others

  • Smaller chute than some others

  • Quite pricey

What Mumsnet users say

“I bought an Omega juicer which was expensive but I intend to juice every day, and my kids (4yrs and 18mo) are also enjoying helping to make them and taste them too” - recommended by Mumsnet user, EmGee

Our verdict

If your family prefers savoury flavours, or you’re fans of green juice, then this is the one for you. The Omega Sana Juicer is great particularly for fibrous veg. It offers two speeds so you can alternate between soft and hard fruits and you don’t have to waste time prepping. Bear in mind, though, that the chute is small so it’s best to quarter apples (and similar).

Handily, this juicer can deal with peel, cores and pip, and it features an ingredient ‘pusher’ to force more stubborn fruit and veg through. Included attachments mean you can also use the juicer as a mincer or pasta maker; and there’s an oil extractor attachment available to buy separately if you wish. Like we say, it’s big and it isn’t so quick or quiet - but it’s very effective. There are lots of colours to choose from too, so you can style to compliment your kitchen.

7. Best centrifugal juicer: Nutribullet Juicer Pro

Nutribullet Juicer Pro

Price on writing: £120 | Buy now from Amazon

Key specs

Type: centrifugal | Power: 1000w | Speeds: 3 | Attachments: freezer tray, glass-to-go bottle, cleaning brush, dual-size food pusher, juice pitcher, sealing pitcher lid with froth separator | Warranty: 1 year

What we like

  • Brand loved by Mumsnetters

  • Low, high and turbo speeds

  • Comes with lots of fab accessories

What we don't like

  • Quite pricey

What Mumsnet users say

"Nutribullet Pro 900 is a must. It works very well" - recommended by Mumsnet user, PaulMorel

"Nutribullet Pro, they are really much more robust for the money and will kart longer" - recommended by Mumsnet user, CantankerousCamel

Our verdict

Mumsnetters rave about Nutribullet products in our forums so we know this juicer must be a good 'un. It's easy to use with three juicing speeds to help with different ingredients - low, high and turbo (ooo!) Its clever dual-size food pusher means you can juice loads of differently sized and shaped fruits and vegetables, so you can really experiment and mix things up.

We like that it comes with lots of extras including a freezing tray, so you can store leftover juice (no waste!); a Glass-To-Go bottle for busy days; and a cleaning brush which should make things easier. From this well-loved brand, we'd expect no less.

8. Best compact juicer: Moulinex Juice Extractor

Moulinex Juice Extractor

Price on writing: £60 | Buy now on Amazon

Key specs

Type: centrifugal | Power: 350w | Speed: 2 settings | Attachments: N/A | Warranty: not specified

What we like

  • On the lower price range

  • 2 speed settings and pulse setting

  • Compact

What we don't like

  • Less powerful than some others

Our verdict

Mumsnetters on our forums have praised Moulinex juicers so this has passed the real-life test. We like that it has a large feeding tube at 60mm for bigger bits of fruit and veg (less chopping into tiny pieces for you!) and it's easy to clean thanks to dishwasher-safe removable parts. There are two speed controls and a pulse function to vary your juices, too.

We think this is somewhat less stylish than some other juicers though, and less powerful at 350w. But it's quite small so shouldn't take up too much valuable space in your kitchen - a big plus.

9. Best citrus press juicer: Kilner Juicer Jar Set

Kilner Juicer Jar Set

Price on writing: £12 | Buy now from Amazon 

Key specs

Type: press juicer | Power: N/A | Speed: N/A | Attachments: Juicer and clip top jar | Warranty: N/A

What we like

  • Easy, affordable option

  • Much-loved Kilner jars can also be used for storage

  • Dishwasher-safe

What we don't like

  • None of the fancy functions: simple but great for squeezing limes and oranges

Our verdict

If you’re looking to make orange or other fruit juice, rather than juice vegetables, then the Kilner’s Juicer Jar Set is a low-tech but easy and affordable option. And sometimes, that’s all you need! Kilner is a much-loved kitchen staple, after all.

All you’ll need to do is place the attachment into the jar and squeeze your limes and oranges - something kids could even help out with, supervised. It can fit into your existing clip-top Kilner jars too so you can use the same jar for juicing and storing. It can hold 0.5 litres - but there’s also 1L, 1.5L and 2L sizes - and is, as you’d expect, dishwasher-safe (when the seal is removed).

Why do people use juicers?

Juicers extract juice from fruit and vegetables. They’re different from blenders, which also grind up the pulp too.

The NHS says that there are three main benefits to eating fruit and vegetables – the effect of the fibre from the fruit and veg in your bowel, the act of chewing the fruit and veg means you eat less processed food, and the vitamins and minerals in the fruit and veg are good for your health.

Juicing only provides the last benefit – you can knock back juice much faster than eating individual fruit and veg. But be aware that juice only counts as one of your five-a-day no matter how much fruit and veg you put in it.

What should I look for when buying a juicer?

The type that best suits your needs

There are three main types of juicer: centrifugal, masticating and citrus press.

1. Centrifugal juicers are also known as fast juicers. Users like them because they quickly separate the juice from the pulp. They’re often noisy though and they can’t be used for some fruit and veg like mango, banana and wheatgrass. Less bulky than masticating juicers, they can also be easier to clean, although that’s not always the case.

2. Masticating (or slow) juicers use a large screw to ‘chew’ the fruit. It’s this motion that separates the juice from the pulp. They’re meant to be better than centrifugal juicers at breaking down the fruit or veg, particularly leafy greens like kale and spinach that can be hard to break down.

3. Citrus press juicers either squash or spin halved citrus fruits like oranges and lemons. They can’t be used on vegetables so are much more limited than either masticating or centrifugal juicers, but are very small and cheap.

How easy it is to clean

Fruit and veg pulp can stick to machine components very easily and, if there are lots of parts, then they can be a nightmare to clean. If you want an easy-clean model, then make sure that most parts can be put in the dishwasher (if you have one), otherwise be prepared to soak the parts as soon as you’ve made your juice.

How much space it takes up

Centrifugal juicers are usually much smaller than masticating juicers. If you have a small space or limited cupboard space, this is something to take into account.

The size of the feed chute

Some juicers have chutes that are big enough to put apples in whole. But be wary – even if the chute is large enough, manufacturers may still advise coring or cutting fruit to preserve the life of the machine.


If you’re looking for a juicer that's just for you, then a capacity of 250ml or 500ml will work. If you want a family juicer, then you’ll need a capacity of at least a litre.


Some juicers come with extra attachments to make hummus or nut butters. Others come with their own lidded jugs so that you can store any excess juice in the fridge. Many also come with recipe books to give you lots of juicing ideas.

Are masticating juicers really better?

Masticating juicers are better than centrifugal juicers if you want to juice tough leafy green vegetables. The ‘chewing’ motion is much slower, which means that fewer vitamins, minerals and enzymes are lost in the juicing process. They do, however, tend to be louder and more expensive than other juicers on the market.

How much do juicers cost?

Citrus press juicers can cost as little as £10. Centrifugal juicers start at around £40 but can go up to over £100, while masticating juicers cost anywhere from £100 to several hundred for a fully professional juicer capable of making quick work of tough fruit and vegetables.

Which juicer is the best to buy?

The Magimix Juice Expert 3 is the best juicer to buy as it’s simple to put together and dismantle, which makes it easy to clean – the most important feature according to families. It’s also great for leafy green veg juices as well as fruit juices.

For a budget buy, Argos’ Cookworks Spin Juicer is a great option for under £50. It’s easy to clean and is child-safe.

How we chose our recommendations

Almost all of our recommendations for juicers came from Mumsnet users themselves. We searched the Mumsnet forums for posts about which masticating, centrifugal and citrus press juicers that Mumsnetters really loved. We also looked at other reviews to see which juicers performed well across the board then combined our research to bring you this list of the best. We hope there's something in here for everyone.
