The SealAndStore™ juice jug allows storing fresh juice in a fridge for up to three days keeping its natural taste, flavour, and nutrients intact. And a custom-designed juice nozzle will let you juice right into the jug or glass in a spill-free manner.
The model is a bit bulky.
Equipped with a powerful 1250-watt motor and ColdSpin™ technology, the Sage Nutri™ juicer does an excellent job of extracting juice and delivering it pleasantly cool, which favourably stands it out among other centrifugal models. Besides, it eliminates oxidation. As a result, the juice comes out packed with vitamins and essential nutrients.

Cold Press Power
Centrifugal juicers are all pretty fast. However, they also emit more heat which can damage nutrients packed in raw fruit and vegetables. Although manufacturers try to solve this issue by introducing different innovative technologies, the folk at Sage succeeded in it more than anybody else. The result of their work is the Sage Nutri™ juicer, an impressively speedy machine with cold-press capabilities giving it an edge over many of its rivals.
For starters, the model is driven by a 1250-watt motor which packs a powerful punch and is able to smash ingredients and squeeze them to the last drop in a maximum quick and efficient manner. However, a mighty motor alone wouldn't mean much without a great extraction system. All made of steel, the system here features an advanced disc with the ColdSpin™ technology and an Italian ultra-fine precision mesh filter, both working to extract the most out of produce without heating it up. Consequently, it transfers less than 1.8°C when juicing and as a result, all vitamins, minerals, and microelements remain intact.
Moving on, the Sage Nutri™ juicer offers two speed settings to optimise the juicing process. A high-speed mode is used for dense and hard fruits and vegetables while a low-speed mode works for processing soft produce and fibrous leafy greens. To further expedite the process and cut down the prep time, the juicer comes with an extra-wide 84 mm feeding chute. It can easily accept whole fruits and vegetables, eliminating the need to precut them beforehand.
With Attention to Details
Performance isn't the only forte of the Sage Nutri though. As powerful and capable as it is, the Sage Nutri is also a smart juicer designed with a close eye on the convenient and useful details. You will be able to put it together and disassemble in mere seconds and won't spend more than a few minutes cleaning it afterwards. Besides, all the parts of the juicer that come in contact with food are detachable and can be washed in a dishwashing machine.
Now, the feature that we like about this model most is its thought-out juice collection system making juice extracting a neat and mess-free process, something you'd be able to achieve with few other electric juicers. Thanks to the custom design, a juicing nozzle attaches to the jug without spills and splashes while the airtight lid on the SealAndStore™ jug will make sure the juice doesn't spill and all of its flavours and nutrients are preserved inside. Besides, you can use this jug for storing fresh juice in a fridge.
Finally, the Sage Nutri boasts quite a generous capacity. Fitted with a 3L pulp container and a high-volume jug, it will let you make up to 2 L of juice at a time, much more than most of its counterparts.
Bottom line, the Nutri juicer from Sage perfectly combines fast juicing with cold-press technology. To add, it needs minimum preparation time and can convert a bunch of fruit and vegetables into a nice glass of juice, keeping all of its vitamins and nutrients intact.

Really Fast Juicing
Braun is a well-known brand when it comes to home appliances. It boasts a solid reputation and offers consistent German quality that needs no advertising. Another benefit you can’t but like is that Braun products usually fall within a reasonable price range. The J500 spin juicer is not an exception. If you are not eager to invest in premium models, yet, need a juicer that will work smoothly and fast, the Braun juicer will definitely catch your fancy.
Right off the bat, this machine can extract a pitcher full of fresh juice in mere seconds, to be particular, in 15 seconds. That’s really impressive speed. Hosting a 900-watt motor, the unit performs great with all sorts of fruit and veg. You can choose between two speed settings to achieve maximum yield and juice quality, no matter what you are juicing. This way, the lower speed of 7000 rpm is meant for soft ingredients like citrus, berries, peaches or watermelon while a higher speed of about 10000 rpm allows squeezing the maximum from hard carrots, ginger, apples, etc.
Not much of a display piece, the unit features simple and straightforward design mainly focused on the efficiency. The whole construction is a breeze to assemble and take apart. A pretty large pulp bin (2L in capacity) neatly fits the juicing unit and will save you the trouble to repeatedly discard the wastes while juicing. A lid with a chute neatly sits into place ensuring no-leakage closure for no-mess juicing. A pusher ideally slides into the grooves on the feeding chute to apply some pressure when needed. And thanks to an anti-drip spout and anti-splash spout, there will be no sticky stains on the countertop around the unit. To finalise the efficient simplicity of the design, the juicer package includes a jar with a special foam separator to filter out the froth often formed while juicing and ensure you’ll enjoy a fresh and clear drink.
With an Eye on Safety
In addition to high-quality construction, smooth performance, and decent functionality, the vegetable and fruit juicer from Braun is also distinguished by the ultimate safety of use and operation. Though a juicer per se doesn’t expose the user to any serious danger, it’s an electric appliance with a bladed extractor system and there still might be some kind of risks. Hence, safety features should not be neglected.
Like any other automated juicer, the Braun comes complete with a pusher that ideally fits into the feeding shoot grooves and will not only help press whole fruit into the tube but also keep your hands away from cutting elements. The clamps on the top keep the lid with a chute securely closed during operation while the non-skid feet ensure the unit stability on any surface and prevent its tipping over. More than that, unless the clamps are tightly fixed and the lid, filter, and juice collector are properly installed, the motor will turn off in 3 seconds or won't start at all. It means the machine will operate only subject to correct assembly.
In brief, if you need a simple, safe, and fast juicer for home use, the Braun will fit the bill just right.

A Little Gem for Smaller Kitchens
If your kitchen is on the smaller side and the countertop space is limited but you still want an electric juicer to be able to enjoy freshly squeezed vitamin-rich juicers every day, the Philips juicer from Viva collection is one of those compact models that might fit the bill just right.
Thanks to a bullet-shaped design with no corners, a slimmer profile, and a lower pulp container capacity, this juicer from Philips is almost twice smaller than many of its rivals. As such, it eats up much less countertop space and will make a perfect match for smaller household kitchens, city flats, and studios. At the same time, despite compact dimensions, the Philips Viva is a fully functional juicer that delivers decent pressing performance. With 500 watts under its hood, it is not the most powerful machine out there. Yet, given its size, it generates more than enough force to crush, smash, and squeeze the juice out from softer and harder fruits till the last drop. Though the unit operates at a single speed, solid razor-sharp blades will easily cut through soft berries, juicy citrus fruits, tough roots, and hard veg. It can even shred and extract juice from fibrous leafy greens, which often appear a challenging task for more powerful juicers.
Fitted with a 1L pulp container, this model will let you press up to 1L of juice in one go accordingly. More than that, a DirectServe™ drip-stop spout will let you neatly juice either into a 0.5L jar or directly into the glass, which is a great option for quick breakfasts.
The only gripe you might have with the Viva juicer from Philips is a smaller feeding chute diameter. At 55 mm, it won’t let you push down bigger fruits. However, cutting them down in half will solve the problem without much fuss.
Messy Cleaning Made Easy
Juicer cleaning is by far the most unpleasant part about automated juicing. Yet, the Philips Viva was definitely created with easy cleaning in mind and, with the QucikClean technology, washing it down won’t take you more than a minute.
A quick assembly, smooth surfaces, and an integrated pulp container make the unit cleaning a real snap. An electro-polished sieve won’t trap fibres and it’s enough to wash it under the running water, while a round-shaped pulp container has no tricky nooks and crannies, so, you’ll take out all the wastes with ease without the need to scrape off the pulp from the lid. Besides, all removable parts are dishwasher safe. To add more, a special PrecClean function will let you quickly flush the whole system with clean water in between different juices saving you the trouble to disassemble the machine.
To resume, if a mighty and truly compact electric juicer capable of squeezing out all sorts of fruit and veg is what you need for your smaller kitchen, you can’t go wrong with the Philips Viva juicer.

Less Cutting, More Juicing
If you are a serious fresh juice drinker, great chances are that you use a juice squeezer one or even two times daily. And hands down you know how important it is to have a really functional and efficient unit that will cater to your juicing needs. This is where the Duronic juicer will come into play.
First things first, you’ll get a powerful appliance hosting a 1000-watt motor. This power is more than enough to efficiently crush, spin, and squeeze soft fruit, textured greens, tough veg and roots. Juicy peaches, apricots, pears, plums, and apples, sugar-sweet pineapples and melons, flavourful strawberries, raspberries, blueberries, and cherries, zesty lime, pomelo, and grapefruit, fibrous spinach, mint, parsley, and kale, hard carrot, beetroot, and ginger, whatever you choose for your healthy mix, the machine will extract maximum juice out of the ingredients and the pulp will come out dry. To deliver consistently smooth juicing results, the machine provides 2 spinning speeds, with a lower speed going for softer ingredients and a higher speed for tougher and fibrous ones.
Another distinctive feature of this model worth mentioning is an oversized feeding tube. Being 85 mm in diameter, it can easily handle whole fruit and veg saving you time and effort on cutting. Add to that a 2.5 L pulp container and you’ll get yourself a juicer allowing you to easily squeeze several kilos of fruit within the shortest time possible. Plus, you won't need to constantly stop to cut ingredients or discard the pulp, nor will you have a mess around to clean, since the whole system is tightly closed and juice is extracted into a jar with a special lid and spout connector included in the set.
Truly Reliable Machine
The advantages of the Duronic JE10 do not end on its functionality and power though. What's also great about this juicer is that it features a robust design allowing it to withstand extensive daily use and high workloads. In fact, it's made entirely of metal including not only its body but also the feeding chute, the locking arms, the blades (obviously) and the sieve, ensuring that the juicer can withstand extensive daily use without showing any signs of tear and wear. Moreover, such construction greatly facilitates the unit maintenance. We'd also like to point out that the motor in the Duronic JE10 is designed using built-in protection which allows it to prevent overheat and failure. So, the unit's likely to serve you for many years to come.
To round things up, if you need a practical, high-performing, and truly reliable juicer, you’ll be hard-pressed to find a better option than the Duronic JE10. Offering premium-grade quality and functionality, this model is available at an affordable price that won’t hit your budget.

Jocuu Slow Masticating
Slow Extraction For Maximum Nutritional Value
Though less potent than centrifugal juicers, masticating juicers are the best at extracting vitamins and nutrients. Instead of blades, they use an auger that rotates with a comparatively low speed and hence produces less heat. Though slower juicing takes more time, it helps to minimise oxidation and keep all the good things intact. To be more exact, the Jocuu juicer allows maintaining 95% of the nutritional value; besides, it helps to maximise the yield and reduce foaming.
Thanks to two operating speeds (60 and 80 RPM), this masticating juicer can be used for processing both soft ingredients (grapes, celery, watermelon, oranges and more) and hard ones (carrots, beets, ginger, apples, kale, etc). With a noise level that does not exceed 60 decibels, you won't disturb your nearest and dearest while preparing a healthy breakfast. To prevent motor overheating and prolong the machine's service life, it will stop automatically after 20 minutes of continuous operation.
We would also like to mention that this appliance comes with a 10-year warranty for the motor and a 3-year warranty for the accessories. Plus, you will get lifetime technical support.
Easy to Set Up and Clean
With its intuitive operation and user-friendly design, the machine can be assembled and disassembled in seconds. In addition, its reverse function will help to prevent clogging. The set includes a juice jug and a pulp container.
The only downside of this model is that the feed tube has a relatively small diameter, and you will need to precut bigger vegetables and fruits before processing them. On the other hand, a wide hopper will simplify juicing of greens, berries and small or chopped fruits.
Made from high-quality BPA-free materials, the machine is ideally suited for extracting healthy juices. It is equipped with a dense stainless steel strainer and comes with a cleaning brush that will allow you easily remove pulp. All removable parts are dishwasher safe, so cleaning the machine will take minimum time and effort.
In a word, this slow masticating juicer by Jocuu will help you to make fruit, vegetable or green juice that is rich in vitamins and micronutrients. Quiet in operation, the appliance will allow you to prepare wholesome treats without disturbing your family.

What Is a Juicer?
Juicing has become really popular in recent years and not without a reason. The thing is, a glass of fresh juice (175-300 ml) can replace many expensive dietary supplements and fulfil the recommended daily supply of vitamins, minerals and fibre for an adult. With a juicer at hand, you can keep from drinking packed juice, live a healthier lifestyle, and also save a bit of money that you'd spend on buying juice from local stores.
Modern juicers are designed with potent motors so that they can easily squeeze juice from both soft and hard fruits and vegetables without ditching enzymes, amino acids, minerals and vitamins that are essential to get the maximum health benefits. Plus, they are very easy to use. All you need is to load ingredients of your choice into the chute, set a necessary speed and press to start - in a few seconds your drink will be ready.
Other appliances you might be interested in, especially if you tend towards healthy habits and lifestyle include a countertop blender and a smoothie maker. Read about these and make sure you have everything you need to live a better life.
What Features to Compare
Even if you don't lead a healthy lifestyle right now but are looking in this direction, drinking freshly-squeezed juice can be a good start. For that, though, you need to have a good juicer. Here we will take a look at the important specs that should be considered when selecting a juicer for home use.
Best Used For
First things first, consider which type of juicer will work best for your needs. While juicers may come in various designs and styles, in this article we will take a look at the two main types which include masticating and centrifugal juicers.
Centrifugal juicers are designed to chop produce using a grater disc and they spin ingredients at such a high speed that the pulp gets separated from the juice literally in mere seconds. Once done, the juice then goes into a special container while the pulp remains behind in a pulp bin. A centrifugal juice extractor requires less preparation and juices fast, but the tradeoff is, it doesn't work well with leafy green vegetables and wheatgrass.
When it comes to masticating juicers, these use an auger which crushes all types of fruits, vegetables and greens, then compresses them, and then squeezes juice. A masticating juicer's relatively slow which allows them to effectively process leafy greens. Moreover, due to the slower operation, masticating juicers do not oxidise or heat thus, allowing preserving useful elements in the produced juice for longer.
Moving on, consider the efficiency of the juicer you choose. This parameter's determined by speed and power. Just to give you an example, centrifugal juicers averaged at 400-1000W are suited for home use, where there's no need to squeeze juice in bulk. Masticating juicers, in turn, are slower and thus, 150-400W will be sufficient for juicing not only soft fruits but also vegetables and leafy greens.
Another thing to consider is how many speeds are included in the device. Most modern juicers have from 2-3 up to 9 speed settings, allowing them to perform various tasks. In general, higher speeds work best for juicing fruits and vegetables (carrots, beets, apples, etc.) while lower speeds work best for soft produce (peaches, pumpkins, watermelons, etc.). By adjusting the speed, you can control the density of the produced juice. Keep note that you usually get more pull in your juice when running the device on higher speeds.
Ease of Use and Additional Features
Convenience features not only make juicing easier but also influence its performance and functionality. The first important thing here is the size of the chute. Again, the juicer should be chosen depending on what fruit or vegetables you want to juice. For example, the average size of an apple is about 50 mm, so, to squeeze the juice from a whole apple without any pre-cutting, the chute must be bigger than 50 mm.
Special filters in a juicer provide better control over the quality of juice and the amount of foam in it. A handy pusher (plunger) will serve to safely push the fruit through the feed chute to the blades of the juicer. Additional indicators and lighting will also provide extra convenience when using a juicer.
Keep in mind that the juice container and the pulp bin of the juicer should be big enough to allow for producing enough fresh juice for yourself or your whole family. Remember that raw juice is a perishable product, so the volume of the juice pitcher should match the quantity of juice consumed.
Some juicers feature an anti-drip system which will allow you to control the juice flow to the pitcher or even pause the flow to change the juice container. Take into account that this feature is extremely useful when juicing directly to a glass or cup from which you are going to drink.
In order to make cleaning easy, it is better to choose a juicer with removable working parts, including dishwasher-safe parts that are easy to clean and wash. Furthermore, some juicers come with a special cleaning brush for quick and easy clean-up of small cells and sharp details.
When buying a juicer, it’s hard to expect any other options in addition to juicing. But best juicers can surprise you with a whole set of extra features for other tasks, such as making nut butter or grinding coffee.
Safety and Reliability
Safety and reliability of the juicer are also important points. It is desirable that the juicers have locking systems that prevent misassembly and ensure proper closing of the covers. There might be situations when the motor might heat up during prolonged juicing. To prevent overheating, the juicer should have a protection system against overheating. If the motor heats up or is loaded up to a certain value, the sensors will activate and stop the operation of the juicer. This will keep your juicer in good condition and, following the advice provided in the manual, you’ll be able to continue juicing. Rubberized feet of the juicer will hold the juicer machine firmly on the table and reduce its vibration during juicing.
When working with a masticating juicer, the material of an auger should be strong enough to avoid breakages when juicing hard fruit or fruit with seeds. Also, there are cases when the auger gets blocked or scrolled against the crushed mass. A reverse mechanism, which scrolls the auger in the reverse direction, will help unlock and push out the crushed mass and seeds.
In addition to the material of the internal parts, the material of the housing affects the reliability of the entire juicer. One of the best materials of the housing is stainless steel which, in addition to its durability and strength, makes the juicer look great in any kitchen interior. With the advancement of technology, some plastics have also acquired an excellent strength that can be compared even with metal. To sum up, plastic does not mean unreliability.
