Breville 800CPXL

Bestseller

This model takes the lead in the world of citrus juicers by almost all definitions. An incredibly powerful 165 W motor of Breville 800CPXL will extrude every precious drop from any citrus fruit and deliver the nutritious beverage right into your glass. The frame, the pulp filter, and the cone are all made of practical, durable stainless steel that was surely designed for heavy-duty use. Although, steel adds to the weight of the appliance – 10.4 lbs. totally – it also provides additional stability when you use it on a kitchen table or countertop. However, there are many more useful features to it. Let's take a look.

An exclusive patented lever allows you to extract plenty of juice putting in a minimal effort. Plus, it is fitted with a rubber coating so you can firmly hold it in your hand. Besides, the lever features double protection, which prevents accidental activation of the juicer: the device will operate only when you trigger the lever and the juicing cone simultaneously.

The Quadra-fin juicing cone has a unique design allowing it to process fruits of all sizes and shapes. And the acid-resistant stainless steel that the cone is made of doesn't leave any aftertaste. A quick rinse under tap water is enough to keep it clean.

The juicer comes with 2 filters for variable pulp control. The manufacturers wanted to make sure that this juicer can satisfy the needs of people from different categories: those who like the juice with pulp and those who don't.

Of course, that's just a handful of useful features the Breville 800CPXL can offer. A bestseller on Amazon, this juicer has many strong points, allowing it to keep the lead. So if you want to buy the best of what the market can offer you right now, you won't do wrong if you opt for the Breville 800CPXL.

Review of Breville 800CPXL Die-Cast Citrus Press

Hey, Orange!

Here are a few reasons why you should drink orange juice regularly:

  • Your skin will look younger if you often eat fresh oranges or drink orange juice. The secret ingredient is the vitamin C. It raises the amount of anti-ageing collagens in your body and slows down the natural ageing process.
  • Potassium - the vital element for us - can be found in oranges too. It improves the carbohydrate metabolism, helps in protein synthesis, and contributes to water retention in a human body.
  • One cup of orange juice contains almost a daily dose of magnesium that will give you the necessary boost for the whole day. If your job involves physical activity then the OJ will perform miracles for you: you'll start the work more energized and be less tired at the end of it.
  • Some people are uptight to even hearing the word 'sugar'. However, without it, it can also be quite hard - many people who cut down on sugar confessed that they felt bad and often found it difficult to concentrate and work. This is where citrus juice will help, allowing you to effectively carbohydrate your organism while keeping sugars low. Additionally, orange and grapefruit juice has proved to be effective at neutralizing inflammations caused by high-fat food.
  • The caloric value of a freshly squeezed OJ is approximately 120 kcal. per 1 cup, which is equal to one meal. That's why orange juice can satisfy hunger and is often included in diets of people who control their weight.

Juiceman JCJ450

To the Last Drop

With users in mind, the manufacturer has equipped Juiceman appliance with a 40-Watt motor and two juicing cones. Not only these features allow you to get the luscious citrus liquid to the every last drop but they also ensure countertop cleanliness. All the juice you squeeze can be gathered either into a container (its capacity is relatively small, approximately 1 cup) or into a glass. It has become possible due to a flip-up juice spout located at the top of the juicer’s body, consequently, you can put even a high vessel under it. Take notice of a pulp strainer too – the pulp stays there, so you can add more juice to your refreshing drink or use it for cooking other dishes, for example, baking cakes.

Review of Juiceman JCJ450 Citrus Juicer

Get the Maximum of Every Citrus

Even if your citrus juicer is quite powerful, chances are that not all liquid is squeezed from fruits. To get all the juice from an orange with Juiceman appliance, we recommend you to follow three simple advice.

1. Choose the right cone. There are two of them in the box – a small one and a large one. Using the cone of the necessary size will make juicing more effective.

2. The appliance boasts an auto-reversing feature that changes the cone’s direction every time you press it. That’s why it’s essential to make stops when squeezing citrus fruit to extract the maximum of the liquid.

3. Squeeze fresh and firm fruit, if possible – as a rule, they’re more succulent.

Besides familiar information such as specifications and safety measures, the manufacturer has also described the usefulness of fresh juices.

Cuisinart CCJ-500

Savor the Good Life

That's the motto of the Cuisinart company. Its history began in 1971 when Carl Sontheimer designed the very first model of a food processor that was later displayed at '73 National Housewares Exposition in Chicago. In 1986, the company presented a new product - the Mini-Mate chopper-grinder that boosted the sales and made the Cuisinart brand even more recognizable. We can make a long list of the awards that their products have won, but the fact remains the same - the company revolutionized the look of many electric kitchenwares that you can see on the shelves of the closest tech market. By the way, their blog has tons of tasty food recipes and bits of advice on kitchen appliances. Moreover, Cuisinart collaborates with lots of culinary schools by providing them with the cooking wares. So, we've decided to check out one of their devices. To be more precise, it's the CCJ-500 Citrus Juicer.

Review of Cuisinart CCJ-500 Citrus Juicer

Squeeze the Maximum

When you buy an orange to make juice, you expect to get all the delicious nectar with all nutrients in a cup. But with the common juicers, you have to squish and squash the fruit's skin with your hand several times to squeeze all of it out.

The solution is simple yet effective. In CCJ-500, the reamer starts turning the other way around each time you press it down. This allows you to scrub the inner side of the fruit from every direction in just two quick runs. The 'fast spin' feature is another great thing to help you with this task. The plastic cover follows the shape of the reamer with the filter and serves as a protection against dirt or sudden activation. However, put the cover on, press it down - and a quickly spinning cone will crush the remaining little peels and cells. You might be surprised, that it adds decent 5 to 10 percents of juice to the already squeezed part.

Finally, the third feature is the adjustable sieve that helps control the amount of pulp to your own taste: low, average or high. But there's more! Don't rush throwing out the pulp left in the container. Remove the seeds, and you get yourself the sweet-smelling spice for lots of dishes. This pulp consists of dietary fiber and pectin - they are very nutritious and tasty. Spice up your bakery, meat or cocktails with the sweetest aroma and taste by adding this ingredient.

We can readily recommend this Cuisinart orange juicer as a great addition to your kitchen if you are looking for a model to get the maximum profit with the little to none waste.

Proctor Silex 66331 Alex's Lemonade Stand

Capacious Juicer

What features make a good citrus juicer? Surely, it needs to be fast, reliable, and, most importantly it should be easy to use. Fortunately, this lemon squeezer unit from Proctor Silex is exactly like that. Still, it is very reasonably priced and high quality. It is available only at a fraction of the price of premium devices.

Besides lemons, the unit can squeeze oranges and limes easily. The juicer comes equipped with 2 reamers designed to fit fruits of any size, so you don’t have to worry about gigantic grapefruits each time you want to squeeze a glass of fresh juice.

As for the capacity of the juicer, it is made with a plastic 34-oz container that can fit up to 10 fruits or up to 4 standard cups of juice. The generous capacity alone makes this particular model one of the best appliances in its price range.

Review of Proctor Silex 66331 Alex's Lemonade Stand Citrus Juicer

Extra Quick

To make cleaning of the unit a tad easier, the device features a convenient pulp control dial. And the pulp doesn’t affect the capabilities of the juicer too much.

The main advantage of citrus juicers over food processors that have a juicer function is that they can squeeze the fruits much faster. And this model is no exception to this rule. The Proctor Silex 66331 is capable of producing one cup of juice in just 10 - 15 seconds.

Lemon Squeezing Made Easy

The press-down mechanism is activated by pushing the juicer cover against the unit itself. The whole process is quite simple and almost effortless since it only requires just a few pounds of pressure to be applied. What is more, you can use the juice tank to pour the refreshing drink straight into your cup thanks to a special pour spout on the side and a convenient handle.

The only gripe we’ve found with this particular juicer is that it lacks filters. Therefore, in case you need to process a large number of citrus fruits, you might need to sift through all the seeds and citrus pulp as they build up.

Even though most of the juicer parts are dishwasher-safe, you still have to disassemble the unit before cleaning. This should be done to prevent the water from getting into the control unit.

We would like to conclude that it's a good citrus juicer that can handle fruits of pretty much any size. It won't break the bank but will provide you with fresh and delicious juice every time you crave for an energy boost.

BLACK+DECKER CJ625

2-in-1: Juicer + Pitcher

Black & Decker juicer, unlike other models, will collect juice in a 1 Qt. pitcher first, so that you could distribute it evenly into the glasses later on. It features 2 cones to match little and large fruits. The smaller one is super-effective for limes, tangerines or lemons. Use the larger one for oranges, grapefruits or even pomelos. Note, that to use a bigger reamer, you should mount it on top of the little one. The self-reversing cone allows squeezing all luscious juice by turning the reamer the other way around each time you push it down. What we really like is that the hole sizes of a strainer can be adjusted. That way, you can filter out huge particles like seeds and achieve a perfect texture for your drink or cocktail ingredient.

There's another little helpful thing to make cocktails in this electric citrus juicer. The pitcher has the graded marks from 8 oz. to 32 oz. to check out the exact amount of juice inside. You can use it as a measuring cup for liquids or flour while cooking. After you have finished with the squeezing, pour it into the glasses through a small spout at the top of the pitcher. All detachable parts, including the container, can be safely cleaned in a dishwasher. The device itself is pretty compact, portable and lightweight, so it won't take a lot of space even in a tiny kitchen. There's a niche around the base of the device to store a power cable. Just wrap it around and keep it in a dry place when you don't use it. But trust us, it won't be stored away for too long.

Your body will crave for fresh juice like a desert misses the rain. Therefore, you can grab this model and forget about cartons of orange juice from the market shelves till the end of times.

Comparison of Citrus Juicers

What Is a Citrus Juicer?

An electric citrus juicer is a popular device used to extract juice from grapefruits, pomelos, limes, oranges, and other citrus fruits, which will be highly appreciated by any individual who's taking care of their health and living an active life style. You wonder why? Here is the answer: one glass of fresh juice contains a daily portion of vital nutrients, including vitamin C, that we all need to stay healthy! However, being so good for your health isn't the only reason why citrus juice is so loved by people. Another reason is that it's truly delicious, with it being often a part of various cocktails and sweet beverages. Are these the same reasons you want to have a citrus juicer in your kitchen as well? If so, this selection of the best citrus juicers has been tailored especially for you. With one of the citrus juicers, you'll be able to enjoy delicious and vitamin-rich juice anytime you want!

You may also be interested in purchasing a margarita machine, a special device used for making various colored cocktails. And for all healthy life-goers, we'd recommend taking a look at this selection of smoothie makers.

What Features to Compare

Type

In order to select a citrus juicer, you need to first pay attention to its type. There are two types available: manual and electric. Electric models are equipped with a motor and operate at 110-120V, letting you process a great deal of fruit in a short while. Obviously, manual models do not have a motor and in order for them to operate, you need to do all the work by hand.

Despite the fact that both these types will let you extract juice, we'd recommend sticking with electric models as these require less effort from you and work several times faster. Today, you can find juicers the power range of which may vary from 20 to 200V.

Power

The next important aspect to consider is power. The rule here is simple - the higher it is, the more high-performing the juicer will be. Also, there will be fewer chances that the juicer might suddenly jam or slow down during operation when you press down the reamer with the fruit. Today, the market offers a great variety of juicers so you can easily find one with the tech you need.

Capacity

Further down the list is a capacity offered. In most cases, the volume of containers installed on citrus juicers is rather small, because many people prefer to squeeze juice straight into a cup or glass. However, you can also find fairly capacious models, letting you squeeze several portions of juice at a time. These models will be appreciated by big families that have several kids. Keep note that preserving citrus juice for longer than 5-10 minutes is not recommended because after this time it starts losing its vitamins.

On the note of a container, we also recommend you to check what material it is made of. It can be stainless steel, plastic and the mix of both. Stainless steel models are the most durable among them. On top of being long-lasting, most metal models have great looks to them, making them blend nicely into any kitchen. In regard to plastic models, those are not much worse than stainless steel juicers. Mostly, this plastic is reliable and heavy-duty and will last you a lifetime. Besides, plastic doesn't attract as many scratches as stainless steel. Juicers that contain both stainless steel and plastic elements are a golden mean. They aren't as expensive as stainless steel models, but they are much more long-lasting than plastic ones.

Finally, check out if the chosen juicer, along with its accessories, is dishwasher-safe. This will make its cleanup and maintenance a breeze.

Extra Functions

Control functions are the last but not the least important feature to consider. They should be intuitive and help extract juice with less effort required from your side. See if there's an option to adjust the intake size too - this function will let you choose how much pulp you want in your cup. Also, take a look at the shape of the spout - it should be convenient for you to pour the juice without splattering it. The stop-juice spout function is a useful feature which can be found on citrus juicers allowing you to lift the spout during juicing and do that without spilling a drop. The presence of several attachments in the package is beneficial as well. Having a smaller and bigger nozzle, you'll have an option to process the fruit of different sizes, including whole fruit.
