Only a dedicated juicer can make beverages that are as silky and flavorful as the pricey ones you buy from a café. After juicing more than 60 pounds of leafy greens, fibrous roots, and fruits over 30 hours, we think the Omega VSJ843 offers the best value. In our tests, this machine cranked out verdant, smooth green juice and earthy, spicy carrot-apple-ginger juice. The Omega is a steadfast favorite among juice enthusiasts, and it’s backed by the best warranty we’ve found.
This juicer made some of the most flavorful juices in our tests, and it has the best warranty we’ve found over years of testing these machines.
The Omega VSJ843 offers the best combination of high juice yields and long-term durability we’ve found at a price that’s reasonable for this style of slow juicer. Juice from this machine wasn’t the absolute finest we tasted, but even so it was virtually pulp-free and full of flavor. The Omega had some of the highest juice yields of any model we tested, leaving some of the driest pulp behind. The machine itself has a lower profile than other juicers we tested and runs at a quiet hum. Omega’s 15-year warranty guarantees this machine will earn its keep over time. The VSJ843 doesn’t have extra attachments for nut butters, but it does just what a great juicer should do: It makes great juice.
For serious juice enthusiasts, the Kuvings made the absolute best juice, and it is more efficient for juicing bigger pieces of produce, thanks to its larger feed chute.
If you want the absolute best-tasting juice and a machine with a wide, easy-to-use feed chute, we think the Kuvings EVO820 is worth the investment. This juicer squeezed out luxurious juices that had the brightest flavors of any we tried. The feed chute on the Kuvings has two different-sized openings, and the larger option makes it easy to throw in bigger chunks or even small, whole produce like apples. A proprietary strainer neatly fits onto the juice container to catch extra foam and sediment, but even without the strainer, the juice still tasted excellent. The Kuvings also has a 10-year warranty.
If you’re an entry-level juicer or you want a smaller machine, the silky-smooth juices produced by the Shine impressed us.
We were blown away by the juice made with the compact, budget-friendly Tribest Shine. It produced the second-best-tasting juice, after our upgrade pick, although its yields were a bit lower than those of our other picks. The Shine is lightweight and has a narrower profile than full-size juicers, so it will fit in a small kitchen. The company even suggests that you can travel with it. This juicer has only a three-year warranty, and though we don’t yet know how the Shine will hold up over time compared with sturdier, more expensive juicers, we think that’s fine considering this model’s low price.
