Juicer Comparison Summary

Let’s start with a quick summary of the results from my reviews. I’ve separated these into the two main types of juicer: centrifugal and masticating.

Centrifugal Juicers

Centrifugal juicers are high speed, highly convenient appliances that achieve an impressive juice yield with a minimum of waiting around. They’re also particularly good if you need a citrus juicer first and foremost.

A fast juicer introduces more heat and oxygen to the drink though, which isn’t so good for shelf life or the preservation of nutrients.

Masticating Juicers

If you’re serious about your juicing then you’ll be more interested in a masticating juicer.

These work more slowly than centrifugal juicers, but typically achieve a much higher juice yield.

That fresh juice itself is also more nutrient rich, and it’ll store longer in the refrigerator if you’re working in bigger batches.

It’s the best juicer for you if you really care about the quality of your drinks.

What Exactly Makes A Juicer Easy To Clean?

I’ve got a more detailed buying guide after the reviews, but we’re obviously talking easy to clean juicers here. What am I looking for in the juicers I’ve shortlisted?

Dishwasher Safe – The easiest way to make a juicer easy to clean! The more bits of the juicer that can go in the dishwasher, the better. You may still have to do some manual cleaning though, which brings us onto the next point…

Useful Tools – Some juicers include a cleaning brush out of the box. A tool that’s designed precisely for the job at hand is preferable, although it’s not a deal-breaker. Generic brushes are easy enough to pick up online.

Ease Of Assembly – The easier a juicer is to take apart and put back together again, the easier it will be to take care of.

Fewer Parts – Sounds obvious, but the less moving parts there are, the less bits and bobs there are to clean. This makes overall maintenance a much simpler affair.

Spill Reduction – It’s not just your juicer that can be a pain in the behind to clean. Juicing is a messy business at the best of times, and your countertop can quickly get messy. A juicer that comes with a cap to minimize drips is always a good thing to keep an eye out for.

Easy To Clean Juicer Reviews

If you’re looking for a more detailed review of each of these juicers, then look no further.

If you’re still uncertain about making the best choice, have a look at the buying guide after the reviews.

This covers the topics I think about when buying a juicer for my own kitchen, and will help you work out your priorities.

Breville JE98XL Juice Fountain Plus

The JE98XL from Breville is one of the most popular centrifugal juicers on the market right now.

It features some patented Breville technology that produces a really impressive yield, which in turn is good for making your grocery budget go further.

  • SHORT PREP TIME: The juicers unique 3 inch extra wide chute feed allows you to juice whole fruits and...

Inside you’ll find a titanium-reinforced disk for blitzing the produce, backed up by a high quality micro mesh filter basket. These are both forged from stainless steel, and not only perform exceptionally well but will last for years too.

In terms of feeding that produce into the juicer, the Juice Fountain Plus features a three inch feeding chute. That’s pretty standard for a juicer like this, and the bare minimum I like to see.

With this chute you can get many small whole fruits and vegetables processed without any chopping prep at all. You won’t fit everything in there, but most other produce you use needs nothing more than a bit of rough chopping.

One thing I really don’t like in my juice is a lot of froth, and you typically get a lot of that from a centrifugal juicer.

Breville’s solution is to include a built-in froth separator which keeps that froth away from the drink as it’s poured. You may well like a foamier drink, but it’s a definite plus point in my book!

Controls on the JE98XL are very simple, and consist of nothing more than a small switch on the motor base.

The lower speed is best for soft fruits and leafy vegetables. This gives the Juice Fountain Plus proper time to work on the produce, and achieve a high juice yield.

For tougher, rougher stuff like carrots, I’d recommend using the high speed instead. This absolutely pounds the produce into submission, and works really hard to unlock the juicer buried deep within this dense stuff.

Finally, the Juice Fountain Plus is also specially designed to be easy to clean.

For a start, the entire frame has been deliberated made from smooth, rounded parts. In sharper-edged designs, food has a tendency to build up in the gaps, which is a pain in the neck to even see, let alone scrub out.

This design means it’s very easy to just run the main components under warm water to get rid of the worst of the muck, while a quick wipe down finishes the job.

One of the more annoying cleaning jobs with any juicer is the filter mesh. A cleaning brush – purpose designed for the job – is also supplied with the Juice Fountain Plus, and makes life a lot easier.

Overall, I think the JE98XL Juice Fountain Plus is an easy recommendation to make if you’re after the best easy to clean juicer for your kitchen, and if speed and convenience is vital.

Pros

  • An extremely convenient and powerful juicer from a trusted brand.
  • Two speeds tackle different ingredients really well.
  • Rounded design makes cleaning very easy.
  • High juice yield with a surprisingly low level of froth.
  • Simple controls make juicing a doddle.

Cons

  • Buy an extended warranty if possible, as it’s not the most durable juicer.
  • Quite a loud appliance, even for a centrifugal juicer.
  • Screen must be kept clean to maintain a dry pulp.
  • Feed chute has quite a sharp edge.

Comparison Specs

  • Juicer Type: Centrifugal
  • Size: 13.2 x 16.5 x 18.2 inches
  • Weight: 10 pounds
  • Feed Chute: 3 inches
  • Position: Vertical
  • Dishwasher Safe Parts: Yes
  • Warranty: 1 Year

Hamilton Beach Pro Juicer

The Hamilton Beach Pro Juicer is my top choice of easy to clean centrifugal juicers – if you’re working to a budget but still want the best citrus juicer.

Just because it’s comparatively inexpensive, however, that doesn’t mean it compromises too much on performance.

  • SAVE TIME & EFFORT: The extra-large 3 inch Big Mouth chute on the fruit juicer lets you easily add whole...
  • MAXIMUM JUICE YIELD: Juice everything from dense beets to leafy greens. The powerful 800 watt motor and...

The 800 Watt motor does a good job of blitzing vegetable and fruit juices surprisingly quickly, and the yield’s impressive for a juicer at this end of the price range.

Like the Cuisinart juicer I just reviewed, the Hamilton Beach comes with a generously sized three inch feed chute. Again, that means you have to spend less time chopping and slicing, although larger items will still need a little quick prep work.

You can keep feeding that produce in continuously as well. There’s quite a large pulp bin on the Pro Juicer, which means you don’t have to constantly stop and start to empty the thing.

As for the juice cup itself, it maxes out at 20 ounces, which I think is good for a couple of juicy, refreshing drinks!

You wouldn’t expect a juicer at this end of the market to look like the flashiest appliance, but I think it’s more than good enough for most kitchens.

It comes apart for the cleaning process – or general storage – very easily, which makes it easy to recommend for those of you who are new to juicing.

The majority of the parts are constructed from BPA free plastic, and these are all dishwasher safe too. That makes it easy to clean, with only the base unit requiring a wipe down with a damp cloth.

To help you get at more stubborn food remains, the Pro Juicer also comes with a cleaning brush out of the box – always good to see.

Oh, and you also get a recipe book in the box too. Don’t get me wrong, it’s not as though the internet is exactly starved of juicing recipes!

Still, I thought it was a nice touch, and it’s always good to have plenty of inspiration to hand so you can start getting a return on your investment.

In summary? The Hamilton Beach Pro Juicer is the best easy to clean juicer if you’re working to a strict budget.

You might also be a beginner in the world of juicing, who just wants to get a cost-effective taste of what’s out there.

Pros

  • Impressive performance from a budget centrifugal juicer. Great for citrus fruit in particular.
  • Large pulp bin means you can keep juicing for quite a while between emptying.
  • Very simple to use, making it the best easy to clean juicer for beginners.
  • Easy to assemble and take apart for cleaning.
  • Includes a recipe book to help you get started.

Cons

  • Softer fruits don’t quite give up all of their juice.
  • Moves around a little on the countertop, so hold it down!
  • Can’t be put through too much punishment before it starts heating up.
  • Some owners have reported leakage after having the Hamilton Beach for a while.

Comparison Specs

  • Juicer Type: Centrifugal
  • Size: 7.8 x 11.5 x 14.4 inches
  • Weight: 7.8 pounds
  • Feed Chute: 3 inches
  • Position: Vertical
  • Dishwasher Safe Parts: Yes
  • Warranty: 1 Year

Omega NC800HDS Juicer Extractor & Nutrition System

Next I want to move onto the world of masticating – or slow – juicers.

And in that world there is one brand that dominates above all others.

Omega’s built itself a reputation for making some of the best juicers on the market, and the Omega NC800DHS is one of its biggest sellers.

Omega NC800HDS Juicer Extractor and Nutrition...
  • INDUSTRY LEADING 15 YEAR - Coverage on parts and performance
  • LONGER LASTING JUICES - Using a low speed of 80 RPMs results in minimal heat buildup and oxidation...
  • EXCLUSIVE - Dual stage masticating extraction

This particular juicer works at a slow and steady pace of 80 RPM to really twist and grind every last drop of juice out of your fruits and vegetables. That helps your grocery budget go much further.

Compared to a centrifugal juicer, this slower speed also dramatically reduces the amount of oxygen and heat that’s added to the drink during the juice extraction.

That means a more nutritious juice, with less foam, and one that will store in the refrigerator for much longer too.

The auger system inside the NC800HDS forces the produce into a chamber, and then squeezes it hard to deliver a really impressive juice yield.

This slow and steady pressure also means you get much more juice out of trickier ingredients like wheat grass and leafy greens.

You’ll struggle to get a decent amount of juice out of this stuff using a centrifugal machine, as they’re often spat out before they’ve given up their delicious juice.

To increase output further there’s also an adjustable end cap on the NC800HDS. By tweaking this to suit the produce at hand, you can increase the yield further.

Everything left over after the juicing process has finished is also cleanly spat out, courtesy of an automatic pulp ejection system. It’s one of the least messy juicers I’ve reviewed as a result.

The NC800HDS also offers quite a lot of versatility. As well as delivering really good juice, you can use it to make other soft produce like nut butter, baby food, nut milks, purees and so on.

You can even extrude pasta with it, although if you’re serious about that side of kitchen life I’d still recommend getting a dedicated pasta maker.

Given the relatively large size of a horizontal juicer though, this kind of extra functionality is always very useful. Few of us have unlimited kitchen countertop space, after all, so it’s always good to have a single appliance that can handle multiple jobs.

One of the real selling points of buying an Omega juicer is the company’s very generous warranty support.

In the case of the NC800HDS you get a comprehensive 15 year warranty covering parts and performance.

On the one hand, these juicers aren’t exactly cheap. On the other hand, you have confidence that it will serve you well for at least 15 years. If you can afford the upfront cost, it very often pays to invest in a brand like Omega.

In terms of how easy it is to clean, I would say the Omega NC800HDS is no better or worse than any other masticating juicer.

It comes apart relatively easy enough, and the removeable parts are dishwasher safe too. You also get a cleaning brush with this juicer, which makes cleaning the trickier parts a lot easier.

Pros

  • A leading machine from one of the biggest names in the business.
  • Slow and steady 80 RPM operating speed achieves fantastic yield.
  • Adjustable end cap helps optimize the juicer for different ingredients.
  • Can take on a number of soft food processing tasks using the attachments included.
  • One of the best warranties you can get at 15 years!

Cons

  • More plastic in the construction than I’d like.
  • Overheats after around half an hour of continual use.
  • Instructions for setting up aren’t particularly clear. Fortunately, YouTube fixes this!
  • One of the louder slow juicers I’ve reviewed.
  • Quite a big appliance for your kitchen countertop.

Comparison Specs

  • Juicer Type: Masticating
  • Size: 14.5 x 6.5 x 15.5 inches
  • Weight: 18.7 pounds
  • Feed Chute: 2 x 1.5 inches (oval)
  • Position: Horizontal
  • Dishwasher Safe Parts: Yes
  • Warranty: 15 Years

Aicok Slow Masticating Juicer

I’ve lost count of the number of times I’ve recommended Aicok’s juicer on Viva Flavor. It’s a cost-effective but hard-working little juicer that frequently takes the top spot for budget machines.

Part of the reason for its unexpected performance comes from the clever design of its auger system.

This corkscrew-like device slowly chews through fruits and vegetables, opening up the core of the produce to extract the juice inside.

It achieves that extraction at a slow pace of 80 RPM, reducing the amount of heat and oxygen added to the juice. The juice comes out with less foam, greater nutritional value, and you can store it in the fridge for longer too.

I was also impressed at what a good job Aicok’s very affordable juicer does of separating the leftover pulp from your juice. That means a pulp free juice, which is really important for some.

Most masticating juicers are pretty quiet compared to centrifugal juicers, but Aicok’s machine goes a little further.

Operating at around 60 decibels, this is a very good option if you’re both working to a budget and need to keep a quiet household. If you’re the first one up in your household each morning, for example, you won’t have to worry about waking the family up.

In terms of ease of cleaning, the Aicok is a simple machine that comes apart very quickly. The parts that do separate from the motor are dishwasher safe as well.

For the fiddlier parts of cleaning up, you also get a cleaning brush out of the box.

Finally, the Aicok comes with a surprisingly generous 3 year warranty. That’s very unusual for any kind of kitchen appliance at this end of the market.

This extended warranty cover does much to explain why this juicer is frequently cited as the best affordable juicer on the market.

Pros

  • A surprisingly effective slow juicer at an affordable price.
  • Spiral auger gets a lot of juice out of each piece of produce.
  • Quiet and so very suitable for noise-sensitive households.
  • Lengthy warranty for an entry level juicing machine.
  • Good pulp separation.

Cons

  • This juicer is mainly made out of plastic.
  • Although quiet in operation, some elements are prone to developing squeaks over time.
  • Replacement parts are very hard to source if you need to undertake a quick DIY repair.
  • Some tricky to clean parts – nothing too problematic, but it takes a little more work.
  • Some moisture remains in the produce.

Comparison Specs

  • Juicer Type: Masticating
  • Size: 16.1 x 7.9 x 11.6 inches
  • Weight: 8.25 pounds
  • Feed Chute: 3 inches
  • Position: Horizontal
  • Dishwasher Safe Parts: Yes
  • Warranty: 3 Years

Tribest Greenstar GSE 5000 Masticating Extractor

Finally, I wanted to wrap things up with a review of one of Tribest’s popular cold press juicers.

Although I think a decent Omega juicer is about as good as any household really needs, Tribest goes even further with its extraction technology.

  • Bio-ceramic Magnetic Twin Gears produce the freshest, highest quality juices possible from any cold press...

Before going any further, however, it’s important to be aware that Tribest juicers typically cost quite a bit more money than the competition.

That extra cost is justified largely by the intricate design of the juicing mechanism, something that Tribest calls “Jumbo Twin Gear” technology.

Within these gears you’ll find a complex collection of points that are designed, in essence, to replicate the chewing motion of your very own teeth!

There are sharp elements that do a fantastic job of tearing through tough vegetables, while other sections are designed to grind through sinewy produce, as you would with your molars.

The overall effect of this is that you can extract juice extremely efficiently, without putting undue strain on the motor.

That means your juicer lasts considerably longer, particularly if you’re working with very tough vegetables.

As well as juices, you can also use use the Greenstar Elite to make things like nut milk, nut butters, frozen desserts, sorbets, sauces and other soft produce. It’s a bit like the Omega I reviewed in that sense, albeit with even more efficient processing.

It comes with all of the accessories you need to complete those jobs right out of the box. You also get a convenient cleaning brush, which helps get at the harder-to-reach crevices and clean up the juicing screens.

Although the removeable parts are all safe to put in the dishwasher, I think a bit of manual TLC is justified on a machine like this.

Still, if you’re prepared to put in a little bit of cleaning work, this is the best easy to clean juicer for those of you who want the best, nothing but the best, and are prepared to pay a premium to achieve it!

Pros

  • Other juicers may cost less, but the intricate gear design delivers perfect juice extraction.
  • All the accessories you need to tackle many other food processing tasks.
  • 5 years of warranty support takes some of the sting out of the cost.
  • If it can be juiced, the Tribest Greenstar Elite can juice it!

Cons

  • One of the more expensive masticating juicers on the market.
  • Of the juicers I reviewed, this is not quite as easy to clean.
  • Quite a few plastic parts considering the price.
  • Takes a little practice to avoid food blockages.

Comparison Specs

  • Juicer Type: Masticating
  • Size: 18.6 x 6.8 x 12.4 inches
  • Weight: 17.2 pounds
  • Feed Chute: 3 inches
  • Position: Horizontal
  • Dishwasher Safe Parts: Yes
  • Warranty: 5 Years

What I Look For In A Juicer

Want to carry on with your own research into finding the best easy to clean juicer for your own kitchen?

I’ve already covered some of the most important factors at the start of this guide, but here are the other things you need to keep in mind when you’re shopping around.

Masticating Or Centrifugal?

The first decision you need to make is whether you need a masticating juicer (also known as a cold press juicer), or a centrifugal juicer.

There are pros and cons to both.

People who are really serious about their juicing tend to favor a masticating juicer.

This sort of juicer slowly chews through the produce, achieving a greater juice yield in the process. That’s great for making your grocery budget go further.

Because of the slow and steady pace, a masticating juicer introduces less heat and oxygen to the juice too. This gives the juice a longer shelf life in the refrigerator, and avoids destroying nutrients.

The flip side, of course, is that the process is…well, slow.

Still, it’s your best option if you want to achieve the very best juicing results.

Centrifugal juicers operate at a much higher speed – many 10s of thousands of RPMs.

This high speed makes rapid work of juicing fruits and vegetables, and is a better choice if you favor convenience over all other considerations.

This high speed and heat is tough on the nutritional content of your drink though, reduces its shelf life, and can add a distinctly foamy texture to your juice.

Centrifugal juicers are also a bad choice if you’re working with tough stuff like leafy greens and wheatgrass. This produce will be rapidly spat out, and before a great deal of the juice potential can be realized.

As with all things, it’s a bit of a balancing act. There’s no shame in buying a centrifugal juicer if it means you’ll actually use the thing more often as a result!

It’s better to get a regular dose of juice from a centrifugal machine, than be put off using a slower juicer because it takes so long.

In this buying guide I’ve deliberately highlighted great overall – and value – options for both kinds of juicer.

Pick the type that’s going to work for you and your own life circumstances.

Is It Dishwasher Safe?

In an article that tries to identify the best easy to clean juicer, I am of course going to give extra points to dishwasher safe appliances!

The vast majority of juicers have components that can be run through the dishwasher. This will be prominently advertised on the product listing as it’s so helpful.

Just be aware that certain components may need a little extra manual cleaning even after they’ve gone through the dishwasher.

You may well find that a cleaning brush is supplied with the juicer you’ve shortlisted, and it’s worth keeping an eye out for these on the product listing.

If not, they’re relatively easy to find on the usual online marketplaces.

Look For A Wide Feeding Chute

One of the most useful design elements on any kind of juicer is a wide feed chute.

The wider it is, the less prep work you’ll have to do with your fruits and vegetables before juicing them.

There will always be items that need a bit of rough chopping, but the more time you can save here the better.

I reckon a three inch feeding chute is a good minimum size to aim for. That means you’ll be able to get small whole fruits in there, while most other produce will likely only need a quick chop in half.

How Much Noise Can You Tolerate?

This will also have some bearing on whether you choose a centrifugal or a masticating juicer.

The slower masticating types make less noise by design, while centrifugal juicers – operating at much higher speeds – are obviously noisier as a result.

Where it gets a little more complicated is the time these things take to get the job done. You may well be able to tolerate the higher noise levels of a centrifugal juicer, if it means the noise ends more quickly!

How Long Is The Warranty And What Does It Cover?

It goes without saying that a longer warranty is a better warranty.

As a general rule of thumb (as with all kitchenware), the more expensive juicers tend to have better warranties attached to them.

It’s worth doing a bit of digging around to see what’s lurking in the fine print though.

Is it covered for accidental damage or just general wear and tear? Is the motor base covered separately? If you use it outside of a domestic setting – even occasionally – will you still be covered?

The juiciest (no pun intended) elements of a warranty are always found in the small print. Take a bit of time to understand the coverage you’re really going to receive.

The Size Of The Juicer And Material Quality

Cheaper juicers are usually made of plastic, which of course won’t prove as durable as a stainless steel construction.

If you’re working to a strict budget, you won’t have as many options when it comes to build quality. Still, the more stainless steel components there are on your juicer of choice, the better.

Whichever juicer you choose, it’s important to measure up carefully.

Most masticating juicers, for example, are quite bulky and have a horizontal footprint. That can make finding a home for it on your countertop tricky, especially if you’re like me and have a small kitchen.

If you’re going to need to take it in and out of storage because you’re space-starved, look for a lighter model.

Centrifugal juicers more commonly have a vertical design, which can be beneficial if you have more vertical height to play with than horizontal space.

The Benefits Of Keeping Your Juicer Clean

Finally, it’s worth reminding ourselves of why it’s worth going to all that effort to keep your juicer nice and clean!

Here are some of the benefits of giving your juicer plenty of regular TLC:

  • Regular Makes Easier – Just as with every other kitchen appliance, an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure when it comes to maintenance. If your juicer is easy to clean after every use, you’ll stop that really stubborn gunk from building up. It only gets harder to fix the longer you leave it.
  • Avoids Germs – Chances are you’re buying a juicer to get more goodness into your body. Leaving bits of old fruit building up on any kind of kitchenware creates a breeding ground for bacteria. That has the potential to put more than a dampener on your health ambitions…
  • Greater Durability – I talked earlier on in this review about the importance of checking your warranty carefully. The best warranty, however, is the one you never have to exercise. A juicer that’s easy to clean helps you avoid wear and tear – particularly when it comes to acidic fruits and vegetables which can take a toll on the materials.
  • Better Juice – This kind of goes without saying, but no one wants bits of last week’s juice in today’s drink. You might also find that the performance of your juice degrades noticeably if some of the critical components get clogged up with old produce.
