2012 Best Juicer Awards

If Dyson got out of the vacuuming business and started making juicers, the VRT350 would be their product.

The Editors of the Best Juicer Site selected 3 of the best juice extractors for 2012, giving an individual award for the top model in each of 3 categories. A wide array of juicers from several well-known manufacturers were considered in the evaluation process. The reviews and final ratings were broken down according to the following set of benchmarks:

1. Overall appliance ease of use
2. Prep time prior to juicing
3. Juice extraction (total juice) yield
4. Cleanup difficulty and time required
5. Warranty and service process
6. Relative value for the price

The first annual Best Juicer 2012 Award was won by the Omega VRT350HD Vertical Single Auger Juicer, achieving the top spot in the category Overall Best Juicer, 2012. The Overall category encompassed the wide field of juice extractors and included enthusiast models as well as beginner juicers.

During the Omega review, evaluators noted that, "Omega goes a long way to make sure this is your end-all, be-all juicer by sticking on one of the longest warranties you’ll find in a juicing machine: 10 years. If you’ve done your homework shopping for a vertical masticating juicer then you may have the Hurom Slow Juicer on your short list as well. The Hurom is similar in design and around $30 less but only carries a 1-year warranty. That makes this an easy choice for us for the Best Overall Juicer for 2012." The reviewers summed up their opinion on the Omega VRT350HD by calling it, " The Dyson of Juicers."

Additionally, the Best Value award went to the Hamilton Beach Big Mouth Pro 67650, for which the editors noted, " A small, but added bonus is the included juice collector cup. While this may not seem like much, it is perfectly sized for the juicer spout height. You’d be surprised how many juicers don’t include this little extra."

Best Juicer Site's editors reported an extremely high level of competition in the sub-$100 juice extractor market. They attribute this to the low cost of materials and relative similarities in design between juicers from manufacturers such as Breville, Hamilton Beach and Jack Lalanne.

US Juicer's Super Angel 5500 won the final award for Best High-End Juicer of 2012. The machine was noted for having the highest yield out of all the juicers reviewed in addition to the longest warranty. The reviewers noted, however, that the relatively high cost of the model kept it from winning in the Overall category. In the Super Angel 5500 review, the editors had this to say about the high juicing yield: "The company (US Juicers) estimates the level of raw juice extraction at 20-30% more but we think that’s probably being modest. In most cases, the Super Angel does this with less pulp and foam; two things that would add bulk to the extraction from another juicer. More juice=savings on produce." As to the warranty period, the reviewers noted, " US Juicers sticks a very nice 10-year warranty on their machine and we think you’ll certainly get that out of the machine." conducts reviews on juice extractors and publishes commentary on the juicing industry. All machines are researched thoroughly and additional information is collected from user feedback online. The website strives to simplify the myriad of choices a consumer faces when researching juice extraction machines and methods. In addition to juicer reviews, the site also publishes articles and tips for juicing recipes and healthy guidelines for use. Their recent, " Does Organic Juicing Matter?" report looks at the current obsession with avoiding the "industry-produced" fruits and vegetables found in chain grocery stores.
