OVERALL RATING: 10 out of 10

This citrus juicer from Breville is designed to make juicing a simple, fast, and quiet process. The reamer has ridges of varying sizes and is pointed to make it easy to juice any fruits from key limes to grapefruits without having to change out the reamer. The motor is activated by the lever arm, which does not take much force so your arm won’t be tired after juicing numerous fruits. Unlike many other electric juicers, this unit comes with two options for pulp control – giving you far more options than a simple strainer that keeps all pulp out of your juice. Plus, the spout is high enough to fit most juice glasses and has a locking mechanism when you are done pouring to prevent drips.

Although the exterior of the unit appears to be fully stainless steel, the interior is actually BPA-free plastic. These parts are easily removable for cleaning in the dishwasher or by a quick rinse. But users note that the plastic piece that holds the fruit dome in place breaks easily and repeatedly and that Breville does not cover this piece under the one-year warranty. Although the piece is inexpensive to replace, this can be annoying given the premium price of the juicer.

PROS:
  • Stylish modern look
  • Easily activated lever arm
  • Universal reamer design
  • Pulp control feature

CONS:
  • Plastic piece holding fruit dome is prone to breaking

Features
  • Auto-reversing universal cone
  • 25W motor
  • 3 pulp control settings
  • Final-Spin feature maximizing the amount of juice
  • Extra-long snap-up spout
  • Brushed stainless steel design
  • Dishwasher-safe parts
  • Plastic cover
  • BPA free
  • 3-year limited warranty

OVERALL RATING: 9.7 out of 10

Cuisinart is one of the most respected names in kitchen appliances, so it should come as no surprise that they make one of the best citrus juicers on the market. This electric juicer features a universal cone that is shaped to work equally well on fruits as small as key limes and as large as grapefruits. Plus, it is relatively quiet and fast – users noted that it took longer to cut fruit in half than it did to juice it.

One of the best aspects of this juicer is how well it works to squeeze every bit of juice out of your fruit. The reamer is auto-reversing so that it gets all of the pulp and juice out of the fruit before discarding it. Then, once the fruit is removed, you can use the final-spin feature to spin out the remaining juice out of the pulp. Plus, like other electric juicers, this model has a three-option setting to control how much pulp ends up in your juice.

The construction is dishwasher safe, although users noted that the dishwasher was hardly necessary to clean it if you just wash it out immediately after use. The plastic cover is BPA free, while the remainder of the unit is stainless steel and comes with a whopping three-year warranty.

PROS:
  • Auto-reversing and final-spin functions
  • 3 settings for pulp retention
  • Easy to clean
  • Three-year warranty

CONS:
  • Auto-reverse feature can sometimes pull in skin

Features
  • Auto-reversing universal cone
  • 160W motor
  • Integrated filter
  • Automatic active-arm on/off function
  • Soft grip ergonomic handle
  • Drip-stop juice spout
  • Dishwasher safe
  • BPA free
  • Lifetime money back guarantee

OVERALL RATING: 9.5 out of 10

Users raved about this electric citrus juicer from Aicok, which is designed with simplicity and convenience in mind. The reamer is sized to handle any fruit equally well and comes with an auto-reversing feature to get the most pulp out of every fruit. The ergonomic lever arm is arguably this juicer’s best feature – the reamer will automatically start when the lever is pushed down and stop when the lever is lifted. This design also makes it easy to hold the fruit with your hand and apply pressure manually when needed.

The juice spout is a clean and unobtrusive design but won’t drip onto your counter – a huge plus for keeping your kitchen clean while juicing. The spout is BPA-free plastic that is dishwasher safe, but it is also easy to pull apart the top half of the juicer to simply rinse each part individually before reassembling. The remainder of the juicer is modern-looking stainless steel that is easy to wipe down.

Another great feature of this juicer is the lifetime money back guarantee, which is a sure sign that Aicok stands behind their juicer and gives peace of mind given the relatively high cost of this juicer.

PROS:
  • Auto-start and -stop rotor activated by lever
  • Drip-stop spout
  • Lifetime guarantee

CONS:
  • No options for pulp control
  • Moderately expensive

Features
  • Auto-reversing cone
  • 30W motor
  • Auto-reverse feature
  • Large and small reamers included
  • Pulp control dial
  • 34-oz. detachable pitcher
  • Dishwasher-safe parts
  • BPA free
  • Full color recipe book included
  • 1-year limited warranty

OVERALL RATING: 9.5 out of 10

This inexpensive citrus juicer from Procter Silex was picked by Wirecutter as the best juicer for the money on the market today, and for good reason. At a budge price, this juicer offers many of the features of high-end juicers. The reamer is not universal, but the unit is provided with one large and one small reamer. However, the reamer does have the auto-reverse feature for highly efficient juice extraction. Plus, the juicer has a dial for controlling how much pulp gets into your juice – a feature that is typically reserved for more expensive juicers.

Unique among juicers, this model also includes a built-in pitcher. Although this can be a pain if you are planning to make only a single glass of juice, it is perfect when you are planning to juice a lot of fruit and want to store it in the fridge without transferring it. Plus, Procter Silex includes a recipe book with the juicer in order to help you make the most of your new juicer.

The juicer can be easily taken apart and all of the BPA-free plastic parts are dishwasher safe. The juicer also comes with a one-year warranty for peace of mind.

PROS:
  • Auto-reverse reamer and pulp control dial
  • Built-in pitcher
  • Inexpensive

CONS:
  • Reamer is not universally sized
  • Pitcher design is annoying for single glass

Features
  • Commercial grade manual citrus press
  • Extractor arm exerting up to 2,000lbs
  • Multifunctional cup with swing-out arm
  • Heavy-duty metal construction
  • Stainless steel strainer cone and funnel
  • Acid-resistant finish
  • Sure Grip™ Feet
  • Dishwasher safe strainer cup
  • NSF certified
  • 1-year warranty

OVERALL RATING: 9.5 out of 10

This citrus juicer from Hamilton Beach is one of the fastest and easiest to use manual juicers on the market. The lever arm is height adjustable to accommodate fruits of many different sizes and the reamer is similarly designed to handle whatever fruit you place on it. This also makes it easy to adjust the arm so that the squeezer rests on the top of the fruit before you begin to apply pressure. Applying pressure is easy thanks to the ergonomic lever that won’t leave your arm feeling tired. Plus, thanks to the heavy foot design, you don’t need to worry about the juicer tipping over when you press on the lever.

All except one of the parts of this juicer, and particularly the stainless steel reamer cone, are easily removable and dishwasher safe for fast cleaning. The exception is the cup, which is designed to swing out when you’re not using it and act as a drip-stop for when there is no glass under the juicer. Although this cup is sprayed for acid resistance on the outside, the inside – where it comes in contact with acidic citrus juice – is aluminum and can corrode over long-term use.

PROS:
  • Fast and easy to use squeezer
  • Easy to clean
  • Won’t tip over

CONS:
  • Removable cup can corrode over time and is not dishwasher safe
  • Expensive

Features
  • Manual citrus press
  • Adjustable cup height
  • Made of heavy duty cast iron
  • Soft grip ergonomic handle
  • Dishwasher safe strainer cup
  • Certified lead-free, cadmium-free coating

OVERALL RATING: 9.0 out of 10

This manual squeezer from Zulay is designed for people who have to squeeze a lot of citrus fruit fast. The press uses a simple design with a lever – simply press the fruit into place on the reamer as you would for an electric juicer and then press the lever down with some pressure to squeeze the fruit. Although this may sound tiring, the lever applies enough force thanks to the heavy cast-iron construction that it takes very little effort to fully squeeze numerous fruits in a row.

There is no spout on this model – instead, the cup goes right under the squeezer. While on other manual squeezers this would limit the types of cups you could use, this unit has an adjustable height so that you can put a tall glass or pitcher under the squeezer.

Cleaning is straightforward and simple with this juicer thanks to the removable cup design. Simply take the cup into which the juice was extracted out of the juicer and rinse it or run it through the dishwasher. The rest of the juicer can be wiped down occasionally but should not require frequent cleaning.

The only downside to this juicer is that the cup is designed for small citrus fruits, specifically lemons and limes. Although larger fruits like oranges can be forced to fit, grapefruits will be out of the question.

PROS:
  • Fast for squeezing numerous fruits
  • Easy to use with few breakable parts
  • Easy to clean

CONS:
  • Not suitable for large oranges or grapefruits
  • Heavy if you plan to put it away and take it out for each use

Features
  • Auto-reversing cone
  • 70W motor
  • 2 reams included
  • Dishwasher-safe parts
  • BPA free plastic
  • 3-year limited warranty

OVERALL RATING: 9.0 out of 10

This citrus juicer from Epica is as easy to use as they come. The auto-reversing reamer automatically starts and stops when pressure is applied, making it easy to juice a number of fruits in a row without having to constantly adjust settings or fidget with complicated controls. The downside to this simple design, though, is that you will need to hold the fruit when juicing, which can lead to getting your hands sticky. In addition, the reamer is not universal – the juicer comes with two reamers of different sizes to be able to fit any size of fruit.

However, the juicer is extremely easy to clean because it consists of only three parts. All of these parts are dishwasher safe and can be cleaned after most uses simply with a quick rinse.

The juicer spout makes it easy to fit any size glass or pitcher under it and won’t clog up, but unfortunately does not have a drip-stop function built in. In addition, there is no option for controlling how much pulp enters into the juice. Given these shortcomings, the price of the juicer is somewhat high compared to competitors.

The juicer comes with a three-year limited warranty, among the longer warranties for juicers to offer peace of mind.

PROS:
  • Easy pressure to start and stop reamer
  • Easy to clean
  • Three-year warranty

CONS:
  • No drip-stop on spout
  • No pulp control

Features
  • Manual juicer with rotation lid
  • Stainless steel and ABS food grade plastic
  • BPA free
  • Small and portable
  • Dishwasher safe

OVERALL RATING: 9.0 out of 10

This uniquely designed manual juicer from Seenlast gets the job done in a unit that is hardly larger than a can of soda, making it easy to stow away in your kitchen or even take with you when you travel. The unit comes in three parts – a cap, a reamer, and a cup. The reamer is designed to be universal for fruits up to the size of large oranges and has spiral ridges running from the center to aid in the juicing process. The cap is designed to put pressure on the fruit and allow you to turn it against the reamer, although getting motion can be difficult and you may need to use your hand to manually turn the fruit against the reamer. The juice then comes out into the cup, free of pulp and ready to drink or pour into another glass for drinking.

Because the entirety of the unit comes in contact with juice, you will need to clean all three parts after every use. Unfortunately, a quick rinse in the sink is unlikely to get deep into the juicer in the way that you need, so you will need to run it through the dishwasher frequently. However, from a food safety and durability standpoint, this is not a problem thanks to the BPA-free plastic and stainless steel construction.

PROS:
  • Small and portable
  • Comes with included cup
  • Spiral reamer design is very effective

CONS:
  • Difficult to clean without dishwasher
  • No clear information about warranty
  • Won’t fit grapefruits

Features
  • Auto-reversing cone
  • 50W motor
  • Universal ream
  • Stainless steel locking spout and screen
  • Dishwasher-safe parts
  • Adjustable cord
  • 1-year warranty

OVERALL RATING: 8.5 out of 10

This citrus juicer from Tribest is not fancy, but it gets the juicing job done consistently.

The juicer has an auto-reversing cone reamer that is designed to fit any size of fruit. The reamer is activated by pressure, meaning that it is extremely easy to start and stop simply by pushing your fruit against the cone. However, this design also means that you’ll need to get your hands dirty holding the fruit while the juicing is happening.

The juice collection area is large enough to allow you to juice multiple fruits rapidly in succession without overflowing. Meanwhile, the fine mesh built into the spout will keep almost all of the pulp out of your juice – unfortunately, there are no options for pulp control – without experiencing clogs. The stainless steel spout has the ability to lock to prevent drips, which means your kitchen will stay clean throughout the juicing process.

Cleaning is easy thanks to the dishwasher safe parts, although as for other juicers a simple rinse will suffice. The juicer also comes with a one-year warranty, although users reported using this juicer for multiple years with no issues – a great sign for a kitchen appliance that you want to get some mileage out of.

PROS:
  • Pressure activated reamer
  • Stainless steel lockable spout
  • Durable construction and electronics

CONS:
  • Lacks pulp control options
  • Design does not look modern

Features
  • Auto-reversing cone
  • 60W motor
  • Large and small extracting cones included
  • Dishwasher-safe stainless steel sieve
  • Plastic cover
  • 1-year limited warranty

OVERALL RATING: 8.5 out of 10

If splashing is typically a problem for you when you juice citrus, this unit from Westinghouse will be the solution. The juicer is designed so that a plastic cover goes over the fruit while juicing, while the clear color of the plastic allows you to keep an eye on the process. The motor is only 60W, but users found that it is plenty powerful for juicing any fruits and the auto-reversing feature increases its efficiency. The reamer is unfortunately not universal, but the unit comes with two separate reamers from lemons and limes versus oranges and grapefruits.

The parts are easily removed for cleaning and the sieve – the most difficult to clean piece – is dishwasher safe. However, note that the remainder of the pieces, including the plastic reamers, must be cleaned by hand in the sink. In addition, the spout does not have a drip-stop locking mechanism and can be a source of frequent slow leaks onto the counter that must be cleaned up to prevent corrosion.

The juicer comes with a one-year warranty, although users report few issues with this low-cost juicer.

PROS:
  • Cover to prevent splashing
  • Auto-reversing reamer
  • Sieve is dishwasher safe

CONS:
  • Most pieces are not dishwasher safe
  • No drip-stop mechanism

Features
  • Automatic universal cone
  • 160W direct-drive motor
  • SmartFlo filter
  • X-tract+ hand-press juicing system
  • Soft grip ergonomic handle
  • Anti-drip Pour Direct spout
  • Dishwasher safe
  • ETL certified
  • 1-year limited warranty

OVERALL RATING: 8.5 out of 10

This electric juicer from Gourmia is beloved by its users thanks to its straightforward and accessible design, plus the ease with which it powers through fruits. The cone is not reversible, but thanks to the powerful 160W motor this juicer has no problem extracting every last bit from your fruit. The large motor does come with a downside, though – users reported that the unit will overheat after 10–15 minutes of use and will automatically shut down, which can cause some stop and start if you are planning to juice a huge number of fruits.

The reamer is pressure activated so that you can either use the lever to press down on the fruit – and keep your hands clean – or press down manually. Some users found that the lever press would allow small fruits to slip away, which is where having the manual option comes in handy.

The drip-stop spout is another great feature on this juicer. Rather than require you to pour directly into a glass, the spout can be easily opened and closed to hold the juice inside the juicer’s container when you need.

The juicer is easy to clean thanks to the dishwasher safe plastic and stainless steel parts. The unit also comes with a one-year warranty to protect your purchase.

PROS:
  • Closeable drip-stop spout
  • Lever press to hold fruit

CONS:
  • Overheats after 10-15 minutes of use
  • Lever press will allow small fruits to slip

Features
  • Automatic universal cone
  • 160W motor
  • Automatic on/off pressing handle
  • Soft grip ergonomic handle
  • Integrated filter
  • Anti-drip spout
  • Dishwasher safe
  • 1-year warranty

OVERALL RATING: 8.5 out of 10

Another electric juicer, this citrus juice from Eurolux does everything you need relatively well. The reamer is sized universally for citrus fruits to handle everything from key limes to grapefruits. The reamer is pressure activated, designed to be used in conjunction with the squeeze press. The press has an ergonomic handle that allows you to apply hard pressure, although users note that going overboard will result in large chunks of pulp being separated from the fruit without having the juice extracted. The integrated filter keeps pulp out of your juice, although there is no option for allowing some pulp through.

The multi-piece design of the juicer makes it easy to separate all of the pieces for a quick rinse or a run in the dishwasher. Plus, the juicer has a drip-stop spout with a locking mechanism so that juice can be held in the juicer’s reservoir. This means that the juice can be easily transferred to the refrigerator without dirtying a pitcher.

The juicer comes with a one-year warranty to protect your purchase, which is essential, since some users found that defective models would burn out after only a few uses.

PROS:
  • Easy to use press mechanism on electric reamer
  • Multi-piece dishwasher safe design
  • Lockable drip-stop spout

CONS:
  • Can tear of pulp without juicing
  • Defective units tend to burn out fast
  • No pulp control

Buying Guide

Now that you’ve seen our picks for the top 12 citrus juicers on the market, our Buying Guide will explore some of the features to consider when choosing the citrus juicer that is right for you.

Why buy a separate juicer for citrus fruits?

Family making fresh fruit juice

A common question for people unfamiliar with citrus juicers is why you would purchase a separate juicer from the one commonly used for other fruits. The reason is that most fruit juice extractors require a lot of preparation for citrus, including peeling away the thick waxy skin and removing pits or the majority of seeds. This is a big problem for citrus because it can make preparing something like an orange for juicing a daunting task.

In addition, citrus juicers offer options for regulating the amount of pulp that gets into your juice and are typically easier to clean than juice extractors, especially when the latter get clogged with pulp.

How does a citrus juicer work?

A citrus juicer typically requires you just to cut whatever fruit you are juicing in half, then press it against the juicer. Juicers typically press the fruit against a central reamer, which then turns on its own or against which you can rotate the fruit, then direct the juice through a spout and into your cup or pitcher. Some juicers have handles that allow you to apply pressure, while others hold the fruit automatically, and others still have a screw-pressure press function. Although not all citrus juicers treat pulp equally, most will prevent the pulp from getting into hard to clean places and some will allow it through with the juice more or less depending on your preferences

Choosing between different types of citrus juicers

There are three primary types of citrus juicers – squeezers, manual juicers, and electric juicers. Squeezers create juice by placing the fruit between two plates, then squeeze the attached levers together to force the juice out. Manual juicers are setup somewhat differently – the fruit is placed onto a ridged reamer and the juice is forced out by rotating it against the reamer. Electric juicers use the same design but make the process more automatic by having the reamer turn on its own while you hold the fruit in place.

For both manual and electric juicers, look for those that have a lever handle on the top press since this makes it easy to control the pressure being applied to the fruit for consistent juicing.

Pulp regulation

Pulp regulation is a premium feature in citrus juicers that allow you to set how much pulp you would like to allow into the juice or filter out. This is especially important if you prefer no- or low-pulp juice, since many juicers without pulp regulation will leave you with juice full of pulp.

How messy is the process?

One of the common concerns about using a citrus juicer is how messy the process will be – after all, no one wants sticky citrus juice splashing all over the kitchen. The best juicers will have the reamer specifically designed to reduce the likelihood of splashing, such as a splash guard around the reamer or a plastic cover to keep any splashes from the fruit contained within the juicer. Moreover, many citrus juicers have a drip-stop spout to prevent slow leaks that can otherwise leave a puddle of sticky juice on your counter. In addition, consider whether you have to manually hold the fruit during the juicing process or whether the juicer has a built-in press with a lever that can keep you hands off the fruit and away from the stickiest part of the process.

Reverse feature

Some electric juicers can spin not only in one, but in both directions. This reverse spinning action works more efficiently to get the last drops of juice and pulp out of citrus fruit compared to other juicers. Many electric juicers will automatically spin in reverse, while some will allow you to choose when to activate the reverse function.

Ease of cleaning

CleaningEase of cleaning is extremely important for a juicer – after all, if your juicer is hard to clean, you will hesitate before using it. Juicers that have few internal parts and a well-designed storage area for discarded pulp are the easiest to clean. An especially important categorization here is dishwasher safe, since if you can simply drop your juicer into the dishwasher when you are done using it cleanup is a snap. The number of different parts that a juicer breaks down into also matters, since you’ll need to break it down and reassemble it after each use to clean it fully.

Price and warranty

Of course, you’ll need to consider your budget when considering which citrus juicer is right for your kitchen. Manual squeezers and juicers are typically the least expensive, although even prices for these can vary widely. Electric juicers have a huge variation in price depending on the amount of marketing and consumer research that went into the product design, as well as accessories and the addition of features like drip-stop spouts and reverse spinning. Many juicers, but not all, come with a one-year limited warranty – although this might not seem like a long time, it can add a significant peace of mind as you get used to using your new juicer.

Construction

One of the most important considerations in a citrus juicer is what materials it is made of. Since you’ll be drinking or eating the juice that comes out of the juicer, it is important that the juicer is constructed of food-grade plastic or stainless steel and that any plastic parts are free of toxic BPA. Stainless steel offers more durability in the long-term that plastic, especially if you plan to use your juicer heavily. In addition, consider opting for a juicer with dishwasher-safe plastic and stainless steel parts to make cleaning significantly faster and easier.

Accessories

Accessories

Although not make or break for most juicer purchase choices, small accessories like an included pitcher or a second plastic cover for juicing can be nice additions. These features allow you to get to juicing more quickly and, in the case of a second plastic cover, can allow you to juice multiple times before having to clean out the juicer entirely.

Conclusion

A citrus juicer is an excellent addition to your kitchen that can provide fast, healthy juice from citrus fruits. You have the peace of mind of knowing that juice is free of preservatives and added sugar, plus the potential to try out new recipes that call for fresh juice. However, it is important to find a juicer that fits your needs since things like pulp regulation and ease of cleaning can make or break how much you actually look forward to using your juicer. This is where electric juicers can provide a special advantage since they make it easy to use your juicer so that you’ll actually be more likely to take advantage of having it around. Our reviews of the 12 best citrus juicers on the market today, along with our Buying Guide, provide all of the information you need in order to find the citrus juicer that is right for you.

Breville 800CPXL Die-Cast Stainless-Steel Motorized Citrus Press – Editor's Choice

Although all 12 of the citrus juicers we reviewed would make a great addition to your kitchen, our overall top-rated juicer was the Breville 800CPXL Die-Cast Stainless-Steel Motorized Citrus Press. This juicer boasted an ergonomic lever press that keeps your hands off the fruit and away from any unpleasant stickiness while you press. Plus, the reamer is sized universally for any fruit from key limes to grapefruits, so there is no hassle in changing out the cone. Unlike many comparable juicers, this unit also has two settings for pulp retention. The stainless steel exterior provides a sleek modern look while the BPA-free exterior is easy to clean and dishwasher safe. The only ding is that the plastic hinge that holds the fruit dome in place breaks easily, but it is also easy to replace. All these features combined make this the overall best citrus juicer in our roundup.
