Five best juicers to suit every budget
Want to eat more fruit and veg? Invest in a juicer, and you'll get your five-a-day in no time. The best machines are powerful, easy to clean, and look great on your kitchen worktop too.
All you have to decide is whether to go for a fast (centrifugal) juicer that uses fast-spinning metal blades, or a slow (masticating) juicer, which squeezes fruit of every last drop at a slightly slower speed.
Not sure where to start? Here are five of the best juicers on the market...1. Andrew James Whole Fruit Juicer
If you're on a budget, the Andrew James Integrated Whole Fruit Juicer is a great option. A centrifugal juicer, it has a 700-watt motor and two speed settings, allowing you to juice both hard and soft fruit.
Thanks to an extra-wide 75mm feed chute, fruit and vegetables can be added whole, saving you time as you don't have to chop them up first (just make sure any stones are removed).
The pulp container is transparent, so you can see the juicing process and know when it needs emptying, and the top half removes for easy cleaning, which is a bonus if you plan to use it every day.
The only real negative is that it's noisy compared to other models – but with such a reasonable price tag, the noise factor is easy to overlook.

2. Veto Juicers V-3000 Slow Juicer
The Veto V-3000 Slow Juicer came top in a recent Good Housekeeping Institute review - scoring 88/100 and outperforming models that cost twice the price.
Reviewers liked how it was quiet and easy to use, and produced a high volume of juice with hardly any froth or waste. It comes with both a juice-collecting and a pulp-collecting jug, and features a reverse function to reduce clogging.
If you want to juice very large quantities it might not be the best for you – the narrow feed tube means fruit and veg have to be chopped up first. Because it's a masticating juicer, it also takes a few minutes longer to work than centrifugal juicers.

3. Dualit Dual Max Juicer
The Dualit Dual-Max is a good value option that combines power (800w) with sleek looks. The fast juicer comes with two speed settings, so you can juice both hard and soft fruits, and features a double-sieve method, which means fruit and veg is juiced twice for maximum yield (first the fruit is juiced, then the remaining pulp is juiced.)
Thanks to its 70mm-wide feeding tube, whole fruit and veg can be juiced in seconds without needing to be chopped first. Each bowl and attachment is dishwasher safe, making cleaning a doddle too.

4. Sage Juicer BJE410UK
If you have a bit more to spend, the Nutri Juicer from Sage by Heston Blumenthal delivers high-quality build and design with some impressive features.
Along with a powerful 1200W motor, it boasts an automatic pulp ejection system, several speed settings, and an extra-large 84mm chute.
One of the quickest and most-efficient centrifugal machines in its price category, it's also one of the most stylish and will look great on any kitchen counter.

5. Braun Multiquick 5 Juicer
The Braun Multiquick 5 Juicer was recently given a 'Best Buy' Indy review – and for good reason. The testers were impressed by how easy it was to use and how much juice it extracted from fruit and veg.
It comes with a wide chute, two speed settings, a 1.25 litre jug with removable foam separator and a generously-sized pulp container – allowing you to make up to a litre of deliciously smooth juice in one go without having to worry about the fibrous waste.
Its parts are dishwasher-safe, so it's easy to clean too.
