Philips Viva HR1832

Can this micro juicer make maximum juice?

Philips has launched new juicer as part of the popular Viva range.  The HR1832 Viva compact juicer claims to offer all the functionality of a full-sized juicer in a smaller package. If you’re short on kitchen space but keen to get juicing, this could be attractive. We tried it out to bring you our first impressions.

We were interested to see what the new Viva compact juicer would be like, as we haven’t been overly impressed with compact juicers in the past, and have already tested the full-sized Philips Viva HR1855.

Which? takes a first look at the Philips Viva HR1832

Our researcher took this compact juicer home and challenged it with a wide variety of fruit and veg, including oranges, beetroot, carrot, ginger, apples, kiwis, kale and celery to see if it could handle everyday juicing.

Our reviews can help you find the best juicer

The best juicers can extract juice easily, but some models won’t extract much juice and are a bit of a chore to clean afterwards.

For our full juicer reviews, we put juicers through their paces with vast amounts of fresh produce, and measure how much juice is produced and how easily and quickly each machine juices different fruits and vegetables so you can be sure you're buying an efficient model that produces smooth and tasty juice.
