Masticating juicers are well loved because they produce juice of the best nutritional quality at the highest yield. Absolutely the best for juicing greens and vegetables, these fantastic machines are ideal if you are 100% serious about juicing for good health.
The only downside to them is the high price – a good masticating juicer is usually more expensive than the cheaper centrifugal juicers. They also require more food preparation time and effort because of the smaller chutes and slower processing.
Here’s my list of the top masticating juicers to buy. Don’t be swayed by the high prices. I can guarantee that every juicer on the list is a high value-for-money machine worth every penny.
My favorite masticating juicer of all time. This is a magnificent twin-gear masticating style juicer with little flaws. One of the biggest physical attractions of this juicer is the incredible build-quality. Made completely of surgical grade stainless steel, there are no plastic parts to leach BPA or toxic chemicals. It’s built like a small tank and is obviously made to last for a long time. I also don’t have to worry about break-downs – the included 10 year warranty takes care of that.
It uses slow speed grinding to reduce heat and prevent oxidation of any sort. This results in no foam of any sort and an incredibly high yield for anything I juiced. Handled leafy greens and grass exceptionally well. At the price tag of $1,200, it’s not a cheap juicer by any means but its worth every penny.
A very powerful juicer. Uses Twin Gear technology with its powerful triturating action to cut and juice all vegetables including carrots, celery, leafy vegetables and wheat grass. The unique twin gear unit features a pocket-recessed area to more easily accept fibrous vegetables and herbs, 3 separate points cut strong fibers like celery so the appliance does not get jammed or clogged. A mid-range masticating juicer that works very well for greens and wheatgrass.
Excellent juicer with lifetime warranty for motor and parts. Low speed juicing system, 80 RPM rotation speed. Exclusive “Dual Stage” masticating extraction. 5 adjustable settings for maximum juice output. Continuous juicing with automatic pulp ejection. The auger system forces produce into a tight chamber, grinding and pressing the food to squeeze out the juice from items as fine as wheatgrass and leafy vegetables. Also allows you to make all-natural nut butters, baby food, soy milk, almond milk and a variety of healthy snacks.
Widely considered the best value masticating juicer on the market. The top rated choice on Amazon.com with over a thousand positive reviews. This is a dual stage juicer which crushes the fruit or vegetable and squeezes the pulp during the second stage. The GE Ultem Auger in this machine is 8x stronger than most other plastics and the powerful gear reduction is equivalent to a 2HP Motor. While it produces less yield than the Super Angel, this is an excellent masticating juicer selling for the price of a centrifugal juicer. Recommended.
Unique vertical masticating juicer that doesn’t take up much counter space. Quiet operation. Features two spouts and two 64-ounce containers — one for fresh juice and one for pulp ejection. You can also pour water through the chute to self clean the juicer when changing ingredients. The VRT is compact, taking up very little space on your countertop. It’s also easy to clean. Surprisingly quiet during operation.
