Something about a fresh juice always makes us feel like we’re going to live forever. We know chugging down a refreshing glass of kale-celery-apple juice isn’t actually enough to erase the damage caused by late nights and ill-advised fourth slices of pizza, but it sure feels like it might!
Even mid-priced juicers can cost hundreds of dollars, so the skeptics among us didn’t have terribly high hopes when we set about testing machines in the budget category. But we were pleasantly surprised to find that the Hamilton Beach Big Mouth Juice Extractor, the least expensive of all the cheaper-priced picks we tested, was our favorite.
The chute on this juicer — that’s where you insert whatever you want to juice — is 3 inches wide, or enough to fit half a medium-sized beet or a small apple. This cuts down on prep time, making this machine a good pick for anyone who wants a glass of juice within five minutes.
This model is easy to set up (not a given when it comes to juicers) and to use, with just a simple on/off switch.
And if you listen closely (or, er, read through some Amazon reviews), you can hear the sound of tons of happy customers singing this user-friendly juicer's praises as well:
