Best juicer overall
This compact centrifugal juicer is no bigger than a kettle, yet it is one of the best we've tested. It's ideal for those with limited worktop space who are keen to start juicing, as it's really simple to use, quick to extract lots of juice, and easy to clean.
Stylish compact juicer
Best slow juicer
This compact masticating juicer squeezes a good quantity of juice out of anything you put in - whether that be fruit or vegetables. It's also very quiet and actually pretty quick for a 'slow' juicer. It is multi-functional too; it has a frozen attachment so you can make sorbets and frozen yoghurts.
Great value juicer
This compact, stylish juicer is excellent; it makes lots of juice, is simple to use and clean, and is great value for a juicer of this calibre. It has a nice wide feeding chute too, so you should be able to push whole apples down the chute without having to chop them first.
Great all-round juicer

And here are three to avoid...
Some juicers are an expensive waste of cash. Avoid the models that are slow, don't squeeze maximum goodness out of your fruit and veg, or are a pain to maintain. Here are three of the worst models we've uncovered in our tough tests:
This expensive retro juicer fails to stand out. While it can make reasonable fruit juice, it struggles more than others with vegetables and oranges. The feeding chute is deceptively narrow, too, with a width of 68mm at the top but just 42mm lower down. At 6.5kg, it's also one of the heaviest juicers we've seen, so you'd want to leave it in one place on your counter most of the time.
This premium juicer disappointed in our tests; you will find that it doesn’t produce as much juice as its rivals can - and certainly doesn't warrant its high price. If it’s a masticating or slow juicer you’re looking for, we have many good and more affordable ones to choose from in our reviews.

Why Which? juicer reviews are better
Which? tests juicers more thoroughly than anyone else, and because Which? is independent and doesn't accept advertising or freebies, you can trust our reviews to give you the full, honest and impartial truth about a product.
We test the most popular, innovative and newest juicers on shop shelves to find out which ones will help you towards your five-a-day. The best juicers blitz all kinds of fruit and veg quickly and effectively, extracting lots of tasty juice.
We make three different kinds of drink with each model - including mixed fruit, citrus and vegetable juice - rating the resulting liquid for smoothness, consistency and taste. We also measure how much is extracted, to uncover the models that give you more juice for your money.
Juicers can be a nightmare to clean, so we score each one on how easy it is to dismantle and clean after use, as well as how noisy it is. This means you won't end up wasting your money on a model that's a faff to use and ends up gathering dust in a cupboard.
