When it comes to juicing, there's a gold standard. It sounds like a marketing gimmick, but it's true: the best type of juicer is a cold press juicer. 

Also known as a slow juicer or a masticating juicer, a cold press can squeeze all the nutrients out of your groceries to make juice that's rich in fiber and packed with flavor. A cute and compact cold press would fit right into a smaller kitchen, while a taller model might be more suitable for larger households. There are so many kinds of cold press that it's easy to feel spoiled for choice. 

I run the reviews team here at Homes and & Gardens and I've been a product tester for years. We've tried the best juicers money can buy, and I've narrowed it down to our top ten to suit every style of kitchen and size of budget. 

We've scored each cold press on the basis of power, capacity, appearance, and the all-important price. Where we haven't been able to get our hands on a juicer, we've scoured the specifications and read countless customer reviews to make sure we're recommending quality. 

The quick list

We'll get into the specifics in a minute. For now, these are the best cold press juicers at a glance.

The best cold press juicer you can buy


Power: 240W

Capacity: 13.5 oz
Chute size: 3.22"

Reasons to buy

Easy to use 

Reasons to avoid

Too tall to fit under low cabinets

The Kuvings EVO820 is the best slow juicer in the world. It's pretty expensive, but the quality and functionality are second to none. This cold press can handle soft and firm produce alike, making fine powder out of hard almonds. 

This Kuvings machine impressed on test, producing juices as well as creamy smoothie bowls and sorbets. This versatile appliance features an extra-wide feed chute with a flip gate that works to let fruit in and keep fingers out. 

The biggest problem with this machine is the height. Standing 19 inches tall, this slow juicer won't fit beneath standard kitchen cabinets. You'll have to display it on a kitchen island or store it in parts. 

It isn't cheap, either. This is one of the most expensive juicers on the market. Though the Kuvings EVO820 produces clear, clean juice every time, you can definitely find a decent alternative for less.

Capacity: 11.8oz
Chute size: 2"

Reasons to buy

Excellent extraction power

Reasons to avoid

Narrow feeding chute

For a small machine, this cold press extracts a lot of liquid. The Hurom HP rotates at just 43 RPM, slowly crushing produce and squeezing juice while preserving its natural taste and nutritional value. 

We tested the Hurom HP with citrus fruits and strawberries and found the juice was colorful, flavorful, and smooth-sipping.

This slow juicer is great for beginners. Each machine comes with a recipe inspiration guide that indicates how much produce to juice on which setting for best results. It's cute and compact, too, so it's a great pick for smaller kitchens. 

This cold press comes with eight individual attachments. Even our expert tester found it hard to assemble, and a little tricky to clean, since not all the parts are dishwasher-safe. 

 If you're looking to make single servings of smooth juice, you can't go far wrong with the Hurom HP Slow Juicers. To work with larger ingredients or tougher produce, you'll need a machine with a wider chute. While we love the wide range of colors, the bright pastels may not work for every kitchen design.

Best slow juicer for beginners


Juicer type: Masticating
Power: 200W
Capacity: 40 oz
Chute size: Unlisted

Reasons to buy

Large capacity
Attractive machine

Reasons to avoid

A little high-maintenance

This juicer is a dream to use. Each machine comes with an easy start guide, a recipe book, and an illustrated instruction manual. It looks beautiful - the soft matte paper in the recipe book isn't far off cookbook quality. The pitcher and auger have clear marks so it's easy to slot all the pieces together. Once you've assembled your juicer, all you need to do is turn the dial and wait. 

Most importantly, the Nama J2 Juicer more than passed our taste tests, making a refreshing green juice without pulp, with fully- juiced kale, spinach, cucumber, and apple. It also made the best orange juice our expert had drunk in years, with just the right ratio of froth and pulp to juice, so it's perfect if you want to juice citrus fruits, too. 

The single biggest issue with this machine, however, is the size. The Nama J2 Juicer is almost eighteen inches tall. That's almost exactly the average gap between a kitchen cabinet and countertop. If you're working in a smaller kitchen without much clearance above your surfaces, this won't work. What's more, we found it a little tricky to clean, with plenty of lips and dips where produce could worm its way in. To be fair, it has its own cleaning accessories, which were a lifesaver.

The best small slow juicer for easy storage


Power: 150W
Dimensions: 7 x 6.25 x 17"
Capacity: 24oz
Chute size: 3"

Reasons to buy

Makes multiple servings
Dishwasher-safe parts
Easy to assemble

Reasons to avoid

Difficult to clean

This small but mighty juicer has a deceptively large capacity. Despite its neat and narrow appearance, this pitcher can accommodate enough ingredients to make multiple servings of juice at the same time. 

This cold press is designed for slow and steady juice extraction. That's why it comes with a 'reverse' button. Should a chunk of fruit get caught in the spout or between the filters, you can reverse the rotation to unclog your machine. 

For the most part, the NutriBullet Slow Juicer is easy to pull apart and put back together. Only the auger poses a problem. Our tester struggled to separate her auger from her juicer, which makes the machine that much harder to clean. 

But it's easy to use, and quiet, too, especially in comparison to centrifugal juicers. If you're shopping for a juicer to fit into a small kitchen, the NutriBullet Slow Juicer could be the perfect solution.

The best cold press juicer for value


Power: 200W
Dimensions: 13.78 x 6.89 x 14.17"
Capacity: 16 oz.
Chute size: 2.5"

Reasons to buy

Dishwasher-safe parts
Easy to assemble
Variable filter sizes

Reasons to avoid

Slow to use
Doesn't extract the most juice

Whether you like your juice smooth or with plenty of pulp, you can make it in the Ninja Cold Press Pro. This machine comes with three filters, each of which lets through varying levels of pulp. They're even color-coded for ease of switching. 

This cold press has pretty narrow chutes. Our tester had to peel, core, and quarter her apples before they could pass through. From those three apples, this machine pressed 10 fl. oz. of juice. That's slightly above the average we've found with centrifugal juicers, but it's by no means exceptional extraction. The leftover pulp was pretty damp, too.

On the plus side, the Ninja Cold Press Pro is super easy to clean. Almost every part is dishwasher-safe, which is unusual for slow juicers. You'll have to hand-wash the filters, though Ninja supplies the scrubbing brush.  

If you're new to juicing and you're on a budget, you'll find a lot to like in the Ninja Cold Press Pro. Serious juicers with a few hundred dollars to spare might prefer a more premium machine. What's more, you'll have to move fast, because it's recently been discontinued.

The best premium cold press juicer


Power: 150W
Dimensions: 8.8 x 7.8 x 16"
Capacity: 16.9oz
Chute size: 2"

Reasons to buy

Excellent juice extraction 
Cute and compact
Comes with three strainers

Reasons to avoid

Narrow feed chute
Hand-wash only

Hurom sells their Slow Juicer as a multifunctional machine, but it works best as a cold press. This machine impressed on test with its excellent extraction power, producing a small amount of dry pulp. 

The Hurom H-AA Slow Juicer is sleek and streamlined. Just 16 inches tall, it's perfectly proportioned for smaller kitchens, and should fit neatly in your cabinets or on your countertops. 

This juicer can tackle soft and firm produce, but only when they're chopped into small chunks: the chutes into and out of the machine are pretty narrow. That means they can clog easily. Our juicer struggled through a blockage of pulp in our test kitchen. 

To prevent pulp from building up, Hurom recommends cleaning your juicer after each use. Since none of their components are dishwasher-safe, you'll have to wash each piece by hand. While that's fairly common with slow juicers, it's still pretty frustrating.

The ones that just missed the list

If you liked the look of some of the juicers on the list, but don't think you've found the perfect one for you just yet, don't worry. Here are three models which we loved, but couldn't quite find space in our top six for.

How we test

Kuvings EVO820

We put a lot of thought into how we test juicers. We record the capacity of each pitcher, which indicates how many servings of juice you can make at one time. Smaller juicers might be best for single households and cozier kitchens, while bigger juicers can make multiple servings to be enjoyed now or saved for later. 

We test each juicer with soft and firm produce, monitoring the level of foam, noise, and pulp produced. We also check the dampness of the pulp: the drier it is, the more juice has been extracted, indicating an efficient machine. When a juicer claims to double as a sorbet maker or food processor, we test each of these special features. We describe the unboxing process and the cleaning routine, too, to give the fullest picture of each product. 

We haven't been able to test every juicer on this list. Instead, we've scoured the specifications and read through countless customer reviews to identify the strong suits and weak points of each machine. 

How to choose a cold press juicer

There's no such thing as the best cold press juicer: just the juicer that best suits your needs. With that said, here are a few key points to bear in mind when shopping for a cold press juicer. 

Juice type
Consider the sort of juice you want to make. Any decent juicer can mix a smoothie from soft fruits. If you like to work with leafy greens or tougher produce, you'll want a more powerful juicer to shred skins and slice stems. Keep an eye out for machines with at least 400W of power. 

If you want to cut down on chopping time, you'll appreciate a machine with an extra-wide feed chute. Some of the best cold press juicers can tackle whole apples, stalk, and core included. 

There's a juicer to suit every size and style of kitchen. Taller models will fit best in kitchens with a lot of counter clearance, while smaller machines are designed to fit into tight corners and narrow nooks. 

A machine that's made to last should come with a longer warranty. Many of the best cold press juicer brands will offer more than 10 years' insurance on the motor, and more than five years' on the parts.

What is a cold press juicer?

A cold press crushes produce to extract juice without using heat. It's also known as a slow juicer or a masticating juicer. A cold press juicer rotates at a lower RPM than a fast juicer, mimicking the motion of hand-juicing to produce flavorful and fiber-packed juice. 

Which is the best cold press juicer?

For taste, it's no contest: the Kuvings EVO820 Whole Slow Juicer makes some of the freshest juice we've ever tried. Thanks to its extra-wide feed chute, this machine can squeeze all the goodness out of large, whole ingredients. Just bear in mind that it's one of the most expensive juicers on the market. It's also tall, broad, and heavy, which makes this machine less suitable for smaller kitchens. 

For something cute and compact, try the Hurom HP Slow Juicer. This machine makes smooth-sipping single servings and rotates at just 43 RPM for that hand-squeezed feel. 

If you're on a budget, and you're just looking for a decent juicer, you'll appreciate the affordability of the Ninja Cold Press Pro. This juicer will save you money and time, since each part is dishwasher-safe for quick cleaning. With that said, it's not the best at extracting juice.

Fast vs slow juicers: which is best?

It depends on what you're looking for in a juicer. 

If you want to make multiple servings of juice to grab and go, you'll appreciate the speed of a fast juicer. These juicers work quickly, cost less, and eliminate pulp, though they do produce a lot of foam. These machines might be more powerful, from a wattage perspective, but that doesn't mean that they're the most efficient juice extractors. 

A slow juicer crushes fruit against an augur instead of grinding it through a mesh. These machines are better equipped to process leafy greens and tougher ingredients. You'll be left with some pulp, but no foam, and a more natural and nutrient-rich juice. Just bear in mind that a cold press juicer is often more expensive, trickier to clean, and, of course, slower to use. 

Final thoughts
