The best cold press juicer is a delicious and refreshing way to pack your diet full of nutrients. Designed to squeeze the flavorful juices out of fruits and vegetables, cold press juicers (also known as masticating juicers or slow juicers) are the healthiest way to juice. 

This is because the slow juicing process mimics chewing to gently extract the juice from fruit while retaining the pulp and fibers that your gut will love. These fibers are often destroyed in centrifugal juicers, which work a lot more like a blender to slice through vegetables in record time. 

I personally tested most of these slow juicers, with some extra help from our expert product testing team. We have hands-on experience of each one, putting them through their paces with a variety of ingredients and monitoring the quality of results. We also rated them by ease of use and cleaning, price and - of course - looks.

Below, you will find only our top picks of the best cold press juicers from NutriBullet, Breville, Ninja, Hurom, and others we've tried hands-on. Many also feature in our guide to the best juicers

Tall and may not fit under counters

Why you should buy it: It may be a little pricey, but the quality, functionality and juicing results are second to none. 

Why we love it:
'This juicer was a consistently high-performer, with enough power to make smoothies, nut milk and more,' says our product tester Camryn. She loved how the wide two-way feed chute made preparation easy and quick, how it squeezed as much juice as possible out of each ingredient and noted how almonds turned out like powder once they went through the auger. 

For added versatility, you can also use the included sorbet and smoothie strainers when you use the Kuvings Whole Slow Juicer EVO820. It works at 60 revolutions per minute, and leaves plenty of time to extract antioxidants. 'I was impressed with the speed with which juice was produced; it was faster than masticating juicers I’ve tested in the past,' reports Camryn, who also loved the cleaning tool that was provided the make clean up easier.

The Kuvings Whole Slow Juicer EVO820 is a more expensive option, but if you want the smartest and most convenient slow juicer on the market, we think the choice is clear. It's also covered by a 10-year warranty.

Capacity: 11.8oz
Feeding tube size: 2in
RRP: $379

Reasons to buy

+
Cute design

A mid-price slow juicer
+
Compact and easy to store

Reasons to avoid

-
Narrow feeding chute

Why you should buy it: Cute design and compact build; great for personal juicing.

Why we love it:
'I loved how compact his Hurom juicer is (97.6in x 6.9in x 15.5in to be specific),' says staff product tester Jaclyn. 'It's easy to stash away when not in use, though small capacity means it's best suited to personal juicing.'

The 43 RPM replicates the slow juicing you'd get from hand squeezing but with a lot less mess. 'It's able to extract plenty of juice and pushes mostly dry pulp out of the second tube, while the main chute pours smooth and delicious concoctions including orange juice, apple juice, and even strawberry. I was very impressed by extraction in testing,' reports Jaclyn. 

'While it's a slow juicer I also felt that my juice was ready in no time at all. There is only one-speed setting and you just drop your fruit or vegetables into the (narrow) feeding chute to get started. So easy to use.

'Other bonus features include the fact it can make nut milk from soaked nuts. There are two strainers included so you can choose how pulpy you would like your drink to be. All in all, it's an excellent all-rounder. 

Good to know:
The downsides? 'The feeding chute on the HP is quite small, and you'll also want to allow extra time for cleanup,' says Jaclyn.

Auger is tricky to remove

Why you should buy it: Quality design; easy to clean.

Why we love it:
Our tester Courtney was impressed by the steel-tipped auger, which is durable enough to work through whole fruits and vegetables. 'The motor is nice and gentle, which is perfect for those who want as much health benefit as possible,' she says.

The juicer comes with a 24-oz juice cup and a generous pulp container. There is also a no-drip spout. It's also worth noting that the 7in X 6.25in X 17in dimensions will make this very easy to store.

'You can remove most parts and put them through the dishwasher, which makes cleaning up a real breeze,' says Courtney. 'I thought the assembly was relatively straightforward, and compared to a lot of cold press juicers it was also easy to take apart after I was done'.

Good to know:
Camryn found that the auger was 'a little tricky to remove, not one for those who aren't able to put their back into pulling it away from the machine.'

The best cold press juicer for value

Specifications

Power: 200W
Capacity: 16 oz.
Feeding tube size: 1.5in x 2.5in
RRP: $129.99

Reasons to buy

+
Dishwasher-safe parts
+
Easy to assemble
+
Budget-friendly

Reasons to avoid

-
It doesn't extract the most juice
-
Lots of fruit prep required 

Why you should buy it: Great price point; easy-clean design. 

Why we love it:
I loved the three different filters which are color-coded and easy to switch out. They allowed me to adjust the pulp level, which meant I could make morning shots with lots of pulp or a fine juice of orange or apple. 

All removable parts can also go in the dishwasher, which is rare for many of the best cold press juicers. All things considered, I think this is the best budget-friendly cold press juicer on the market. 

Good to know:
It struggles when compared to more expensive models when it comes to juicing though. The chute is somewhat small, and I had to chop our fruit quite finely to get an easy output.

It's also easier if you remove the skin from your apples before using this juicer, which can be annoying, but results in a very fibrous and nutritious juice.

Hurom juicerH&G silver badge

The best premium cold press juicer

Specifications

Power: 150W
Capacity: 16.9oz
Feeding tube size: 2"
RRP: $439

Reasons to buy

+
Great design
+
Good quality juice
+
Quick cleaning 

Reasons to avoid

-
Smaller capacity compared to competitors 
-
Ejection chute can clog

Why you should buy it: Streamlined design; lightweight; versatile.

Why we love it:
What our reviewer Camryn loved about this juicer was the handy set of interchangeable strainers, which allowed her to make ice cream or tofu, or add in ingredients like nuts or seeds to her juices. 

'The 150-watt motor (almost) silently,' reports Camryn. 'It performs wonderfully at just 43 RPM to mimic hand squeezing. In my trials, I got every last bit of goodness out of my fruit and veg, and I was impressed at how dry the resulting pulp felt.

'Clean-up is pretty quick thanks to easy disassembly (and re-assembly for that matter) as well as a convenient drying rack. The inner spinning brush helps to stay on top of things, rotating during juicing to clean the chamber and strainer simultaneously. This ultimately reduces clogging and increases juicing efficiency. If you plan to juice later, you can simply run some water through it to clean it through, and wash it through at the end of the day.'

Good to know:
The one downside to keeping such a small footprint is that the H-AA’s capacity is small compared to the competition, meaning output isn’t as great as you might find elsewhere. Camryn also found the chute a little small. 'In fact, I did notice that the ejection chute can clog up quite easily, so be on standby to clean it out as you juice'.

Breville Big Squeeze Slow Juicer

6. Breville Big Squeeze Slow Juicer

The best cold press juicer for smaller spaces

Specifications

Power:: 240W
Capacity: N/A
Feeding tube size:: 3in
RRP: $399.95

Reasons to buy

+
Small footprint for compact spaces
+
Large feeding chute
+
Easy assembly

Reasons to avoid

-
Fruit needs to be chopped up

Why you should buy it: Space smart, stronger-than-average motor and a wide feeding chute.

There are two-speed settings, both of which are on the slow side. However, it helps make it really easy to use, so you can be juicing within minutes of unpacking it. 

It’s pretty compact, so won’t take up much space on your countertop. The three-inch feeding chute can fit whole apples in theory, but the instructions specify that you need to remove seeds before juicing. 

Most parts of the Breville Big Squeeze Slow Juicer cannot go in the dishwasher. That said, even when hand washing, it’s pretty easy to clean and dry, without too many places for debris to collect.

7. Omega Juice Extractor and Nutrition Center NC900HDC

The best cold press juicer if you are looking to make more than just juices

Specifications

Power: 150W
Capacity: Not listed
Feeding tube size: Not listed
RRP: $459.95

Reasons to buy

+
Great versatility 
+
Good juice yield
+
Easy to use
+
Industry-leading warranty 

Reasons to avoid

-
Feeding chute isn’t as generous as others so more food preparation is needed
-
Other juicers have more powerful motors at this level

Why you should buy it: Incredibly versatile; powerful motor.

Offering 80 rotations per minute under a 150W motor, it’s an absolute workhorse, all without getting overheated or noisy in the process.

It offers five adjustable settings to maximize its performance to what it is you’re juicing with a range to make citrus juice, green juice, and nut butter, as well as grind coffee or mush-down baby food. Despite all its settings, it’s simple enough to use, though its horizontal design does mean it takes up a little more space on the kitchen counter.

Its standout chrome finish looks lovely, if you can make the space though, and has been treated to stand up against the acidity of citrus juices that can cause tarnishing.

It’s a considerable investment, but considering Omega’s industry-leading 15-year warranty, you can at least buy in confidence.

8. Kuvings Whole Slow Juicer Elite C7000S

The best cold press juicer if you are looking to invest

Specifications

Power: 240W
Capacity: 13.5oz
Feeding tube size: 3in
RRP: $449.95

Reasons to buy

+
Customizable sieve system 
+
Handy reverse function for removing clogs
+
Attractive design
+
Powerful

Reasons to avoid

-
Not dishwasher safe

Why you should buy it: Does it all and then some

The Kuvings is powered by a 240-watt motor capable of a silent 60RPM, which balances efficiency and juice quality perfectly.

As well as a juicer, the C7000S can do its bit as a standard processor too, thanks to a number of different strainers that come in the box. This allows you to make things like smoothies and sorbets, plus there’s an extra-fine strainer for chomping through wheatgrass and keeping pulp to a minimum.

If that sounds messy, the three included cleaning tools should help facilitate getting it all washed up and ready to go again. It isn’t dishwasher safe though, so something to bear in mind if time is of the essence.

The chrome accents on the machine are anti-corrosive to protect against citrus juice, while the main body is available in an attractive choice of red, silver or gold. It stands tall too, meaning it takes up minimal space on your countertop.
