10Rate.com editors and reviewers rate and review the 2012 best juicers on a scale of 1 to 10

Hamilton Beach 67650

The Hamilton Beach 67650 received a 7 out of 10 on 10rate's top 10 juicers list.

A benefit that metal juicers have over the cheaper plastic models is that they aren’t stained over time by beets and carrots; this juicer is easy to wipe clean and its parts come apart easily to go in the dishwasher.

10Rate reviewers and staff selected 10 of the best juicers for 2012, assigning each a numerical rating as well as awarding three models that stood out for quality, value, and budget. Testing and consideration for this Juicer Top 10 list was given based on this set of seven criteria:

1. How much juice it yields
2. Pulp dryness (indicating minimal food waste)
3. Ease of cleaning
4. Whether the feed tube fits whole produce
5. Noise and vibrations
6. Motor power
7. Price and value

The annual Best Juicer 2012 awards list was headed by the Breville 800JEXL, winning the Best Quality spot and a 9 out of 10 rating. The review mentioned several strengths of the juicer, noting that it “has a 1,000-watt motor that extracts the most juice from foods, leaving whatever pulp is left very dry. With a three-inch circular feed tube, you can stick in whole carrots, tomatoes, apples, and oranges with little prep work chopping or cutting them into smaller pieces. There are two speeds to choose from, the faster one operating at 13,000 rpm. In the end, clean up is a breeze, and all the parts are safe for the dishwasher.”

10rate's editors also gave the Best Value Juicer award to the Jack Lalanne PJP in the third place spot. With a respectable rating of 8.5 out of 10, the review boasted, “Its durable stainless steel blade and filter are durable and get the juicing job done quickly. A benefit that metal juicers have over the cheaper plastic models is that they aren’t stained over time by beets and carrots; this juicer is easy to wipe clean and its parts come apart easily to go in the dishwasher.”

Additionally, the Best Budget award from the Top 10 Best Juicers list went to the Black & Decker JE2200B, for which 10rate noted, “You will have to remember that with only 400 watts, you can’t stuff it full of fruits and veggies and expect fast results; this juicer works best when you feed pieces in one at a time. It’s a slower process, and you have to cut food up before feeding it into the tube, but it still extracts a good amount of juice with minimal food waste. For a low-priced model, this machine runs quietly and efficiently and is great for light to moderate use.”

Breville was the only brand featured for multiple models each in 10rate's Juicer Reviews. Meanwhile, the Hurricane Manual Wheatgrass Juicer tied for third place in overall ranking and the review had this to say of its 8.5 out of 10 rating: “It assembles in just a few minutes and clamps to the edge of the countertop. You simply turn the crank to extract the maximum amount of juice from wheatgrass. The pulp that collects is very dry. Cleanup takes only a minute or two as you run the few parts under the faucet for a quick rinse. We were skeptical at first about a manual juicer, but really the crank turns so easily it hardly feels like work.”
