Juicer Comparison Charts


The following comparison charts have been compiled on the basis of the testing we did for our head to head review of juice extractors. Hopefully the charts will enable you to compare juicers and give you some idea of which type of juicer is best suited to your needs.

The marks out of 10 have been awarded solely on the machines juicing capabilities, not abilities in other areas such as homogenizing or making nut butters, sorbets, pasta etc.

The major factors that effect most people when they are comparing juicers include:

  • Amount and quality of juice created
  • Convenience (time taken to make the juice)
  • What type of produce you want to juice, i.e. what combination of fruit, vegetables, citrus, wheatgrass?
  • Price

There is little point in having a juicer that makes fantastic quality juice but takes a long time to clean if you don't have much spare time in your schedule for juice preparation. You would be better choosing a juicer that is quicker to clean, this would mean more frequent use, even though the juice quality may not be so good.
