Top 5 Juicers Comparison Review
In recent years, the kitchen appliances industry has seen a profusion of juicers being launched by numerous brands.
Although buyers have many options to choose from, juicers are not created equal. The numerous types and models that are on the market can leave you feeling confused and overwhelmed while in the process of deciding which one to buy.
So, to weed through the options and choose a good juice extractor, it is prudent to read some reviews.
With this top 5 juicers comparison review, you can make an informed buying decision by contrasting some of the top rated models on the market.
1) Breville BJE510XL Juice Fountain
First on the list is the Breville BJE510XL, which is a 900-Watt 5 speed centrifugal juicer.
Its adjustable speed settings increase from 6,500 RPM to 12,000 RPM. This unit has a dial for changing the desired speed setting. An LCD screen displays your chosen speed along with the corresponding preset such as ‘soft fruit’, ‘apple’, ‘hard veg’, and so on.
This juicer features a smart chip as well, which automatically adjusts the speed during heavy loads. You don’t have to worry about overheating though because the machine has an overload protection feature that shuts it down automatically when the load is too heavy.
It also won’t operate if the cover is not securely in place thanks to the Safety Locking Arm mechanism.
When it comes to build quality, the Breville BJE510XL does not disappoint.
The blades are reinforced with titanium to keep them sharper for longer. For the body, engineers at Breville used a combination of heavy-duty stainless steel, die cast alloy and industrial grade polymers. In addition to the main juice extraction machine, buyers also receive a pulp extractor, 1.2-liter carafe with froth separator, filter basket and cleaning brush.
- Wide feed chute eliminates the need to chop ingredients, thus saving time
- Durable design
- Built with safety mechanisms
- Dishwasher safe parts
- BPA-free plastic parts
- Built-in storage cord
- Comes with 1-Year Warranty
- Versatile 5-speed juicer

2) Gourmia GJ750 Stainless Steel Wide Mouth Juice Extractor
Gourmia is known for putting well-designed appliances in kitchens. The story is no different with their 850-Watt GJ750 juicer.
With its glossy steel housing, this centrifugal juice extraction machine will look great on any kitchen countertop. Unlike the 5-speed Breville BJE510XL Juice Fountain, this Gourmia unit operates at two speeds only.
Nonetheless, you can still use it to extract juice from soft and hard ingredients. To ensure safety, there is a hard metal locking handle for disengaging the juicer until it is fully assembled.
The Gourmia GJ750 has many parts but assembly instructions in the user manual are easy to follow.
The juice cup along with all detachable parts like the plunger, pulp container, spout housing, funnel housing, and centrifugal bowl are dishwasher safe.
- Easy to use and clean
- Ultra capacity 8.5 cup removable pulp tank
- Comes with complimentary recipe booklet
- Purchase includes 1-year limited warranty protection
- Wide mouth feed tube ensures minimal chopping of fruits and vegetables, which in turn saves time
- Like most centrifugal units, the Gourmia GJ750 tends to produce frothy juice
3) Breville JE98XL Juice Fountain
This juicer has an easier to handle price tag compared to its big brother the Breville BJE510XL Ikon and retains most of its great functions.
For instance, the Breville JE98XL is also built with a 3” wide feed tube, the safety locking arm, overload protection, storage compartment for the cord, BPA free plastic and dishwasher safe parts.
Much like its counterpart, this centrifugal juicer comes with a pulp container, juice jug, filter basket and cleaning brush.
However, keep in mind that there is one key difference between these two models. Both juicers have multi-speed functionality, but there are only two speeds in the Breville JE98XL. This 850-Watt juicer reaches 6,500 RPM on the slow speed and 12,000 RPM at peak speeds.
- Designed with safety in mind
- Robust high-grade polymer structure is built to last
- Generous 3” wide feed chute saves time since it gobbles up huge chunks of produce without having to chop them down
- Most parts can be cleaned in top shelf of a dishwasher
- Dual speed control for soft or hard fruits and vegetables
- Covered with 1-Year warranty
- Extracted juice may be frothy
4) Breville BJE200XL Compact Juice Fountain
If you are looking for a compact, low-priced juicer that will get the job done, the Breville BJE200XL may be the perfect choice.
This 700-Watt juicer is on the lower end of the price spectrum among all Breville models reviewed here.
Included in the package also is a cleaning brush, pulp collector, and BPA-free juice pitcher with froth separator.
The grinding action in this unit is powered by a titanium-cutting disc paired with the stainless steel mesh filter basket. Vegetables and greens stay stabilized during juice extraction thanks to the dual-blade assembly on the Breville BJE200XL.
The Breville BJE200XL does not have fancy features like its more advanced counterparts. That being said, it is still a powerful single speed juicer operating at 14,000 RPM.
- Reasonable price tag for those on a budget
- Operation is easy as this juicer only has one speed of operation
- Dishwasher safe parts facilitate easy cleanup
- Ultra-fast juicer with a high RPM rate
- Easy to assemble and take apart
- Compact design so unit takes up little space in your kitchen
- Backed by a limited 1-Year warranty
- You may need to run the pulp one more time to squeeze out more juice when operating on a single high speed
- Lacks safety features such as those found in the Breville BJE510XL and JE98XL
5) Omega J8006 Nutrition Center Juicer
So far, all juicers reviewed belong to the centrifugal category. For those looking to spend more on a masticating juicer, one good model is the Omega J8006 Nutrition Center.
This unit has 2HP motor that runs at a low speed of 80RPM and thus extracts more juice than your typical centrifugal juicer. The only tradeoff is that masticating juicers such as this one operate at a slow pace.
However, the wait is worth it given that they squeeze out more juice, meaning you will use less produce to create more juice and save money in the long run. With no heat buildup from the slow masticating process, the juice that comes from this unit is also froth free and does not go bad quickly due to oxidation.
It is worth mentioning that the Omega J8006 is more than a juicer.
This unit is capable of grinding coffee beans and spices into powder. It can also churn out butter from nuts, make soy milk or whip up baby food.
- The two stage masticating process on this unit produces a higher juice yield than centrifugal machines
- Produces long lasting juice with less foam
- Operators quietly as there is no spinning action
- Multi-functional juicer
- Attractive 15-year warranty
- The juicing process from this machine is slow. However, you end up with a drier pulp and more juice, which is economical.
In conclusion, it is important to point out that the juicers reviewed above have voltage ratings of 110V-120V since these brands target the North American market.
The best model to choose depends on what you are looking for in a juicer.
That could be anything from longevity, affordability, and higher juice yield, to simple operation, versatility or innovative functions.
Before making your purchase, examine the features, advantages and disadvantages of each juicer to determine which one meets your needs.
