We updated this article in June 2022 to add a new pick from Ninja and to ensure all picks recommended by the Good Housekeeping Institute Kitchen Appliances and Culinary Innovation Lab are in stock and correctly priced.

If you're looking to pack more vitamins and nutrients into your diet, investing in a cold press juicer is well worth it for daily juice (and all its immunity-boosting benefits). Why a slow juicer (a.k.a. masticating juicer) in particular? Experts say the slow juicing process is more gentle on ingredients and retains more nutrients than other juicers, like centrifugal or citrus.

Shopping for a new cold press juicer is no easy task, which is why we test juicers in the Good Housekeeping Kitchen Appliances and Culinary Innovation Lab. When testing cold press juicers we evaluate performance and efficiency, scoring output, taste, temperature and texture. Out of the 12 cold press juicers we tested, these are the best cold press juicers to buy in 2022, according to both Good Housekeeping Institute Lab tests and best-sellers with lots of glowing reviews online:

It's easy to set up with no instructions and was able to handle hard ingredients like carrots, softer ones like apple wedges and stringy celery without jamming once; plus, it was also relatively quiet.

      Its on/off button is large and located on the top of the unit, unlike most that we've tested that are located in hard to see spots like the bottom back. Its juice pitcher is clearly marked and nests inside the pulp container for storage.

While we have not had the chance to test this cold press masticating juicer yet, we can't wait to because of its glowing reviews, great price point and that it comes in a variety of colors to match your kitchen décor. The feed tube on this cold press juicer is on the smaller side which the manufacturer says prevents injury (since your hand cannot fit in it), but it requires additional prep, making sure all fruits and vegetables are cut to fit in the feed tube. A brush is included for cleaning, but all parts are dishwasher-safe except for the motor. AMZCHEF has a two year warranty and also offers lifelong technical and customer support.

      H101 Easy Clean Slow Juicer

      • Easy to clean
      • Customizable pulp amounts
      • Freshest-tasting juice in Lab tests

      • Small feed tube

      One of the biggest downsides to juicing is the cleanup — most models have metal mesh strainers that require diligent scrubbing after every use. But this cold press model is much easier to keep pristine, thanks to heavy-duty plastic strainers that have easy-to-clean large vertical grooves. Additionally, the machine has a tiled juicing chamber that spits out more juice, leaving less mess inside for wrangling later.

      What’s more, the pulp spout features a trap door that provides better access to interior parts, so you can tackle whatever is left with the included cleaning brushes. That’s not all there is to love: In our Lab tests, this machine made some of the freshest-tasting green juice and testers loved the customization options, like how much pulp ends up in the finished product.

      This cold press juicer ticks a lot of boxes beyond its sleek aesthetic. It's relatively compact — great for preserving precious counter space — plus easy to assemble and disassemble, if you'd rather stash it. In tests, operation was simple and although the feeding tube is a bit small (we found that slimmer items, like celery, fit easily, but larger items, like apples, needed to be cut into wedges). The result is a smooth, fragrant juice that our tester said tasted "very pure." Cleaning is relatively simple, too, thanks to an included brush that fits into any nooks and crannies.

      • Small feed tube

      While we haven't had the chance to test this model yet, we know from past Omega juicer testing that this is a great choice when looking for a model that can do more than just make juice: According to Omega, this model can produce nut milks and butters, grind coffee beans, make frozen desserts and mince herbs and garlic.

      This cold press juicer operates at a low speed of 80 RPM which ensures that juice will not overheat, reducing chances of early oxidation and ensuring that all enzymes are locked into your juice. It's feed tube is on the smaller side and requires additional prep cutting fruits and vegetables to ensure that they fit.

      Pure Juicer

      • Phenomenal juice results in Lab testing
      • Dishwasher-safe stainless steel parts

      • Involved, multi-step process
      • Does not come with a juice pitcher

      This pick is a large, pricey juicer made completely out of food-grade stainless steel that is incredibly heavy and durable. The left side has a system to grind produce into a superfine pulp and the right side features a 5,400 pound hydraulic press that presses every single drop of juice out of superfine pulp. In our recent Lab testing, it created apple, kale and carrot juice that had absolutely no sediment and tasted clean and sweet with incredibly vibrant color, very little foam and minimal, bone dry pulp.

      While this style of cold press juicing is a little more involved than most juicers because of its two-step and somewhat manual process, once you get the hang of it, you are rewarded with silky, smooth juice — and plenty of it! All stainless steel parts are easy to clean by hand but are also dishwasher-safe and comes with a 12-year transferable warranty.

      How we test cold press juicers

      In the Good Housekeeping Kitchen Appliances and Culinary Innovation Lab. We do so by juicing just about everything — pulpy apples that have a large diameter and oxidize quickly, floppy kale which can often jam machines and hard, fibrous carrots. We then measure multiple data points around key features to find the top juicers, including output (e.g. how much juice does the machine create? How much pulp does it yield? How dry is the pulp?), and of course, the taste, texture and temperature of the resulting juice.

      What to consider when shopping for cold press juicers

      ✔️ Price: Cold press juicers tend to be more expensive than their centrifugal counterparts because their machinery is designed to slowly and gently separate juice. While there are some affordable options, expect to spend a few couple hundred dollars to get a juicer that’s designed to make good juice and to last.

      ✔️Style: There are two different styles of cold press juices: vertical and horizontal. Vertical juicers typically have a one-piece design, making setup and cleanup a bit simpler, but they’re not quite as powerful as the slightly more cumbersome horizontal models.

      ✔️ Size of feed tube: The larger the tube, the less prep work—i.e. chopping — you’ll have to do. Some juicers, like the Kuvings, even have one section large enough for an entire apple and another section that's small for thin items like celery and kale for maximum versatility.

      ✔️ Accessories: Some cold press juicers come with different sized strainers that allow for different kinds of juices — and even smoothies. Some also can be used to make sauce, purees, nut butters and sorbets. If you choose a machine with these types of accessories, look for included cleaning brushes to keep things sanitary.

      ✔️ Power: Though most cold press juicers won’t win any awards for speed, it’s worth considering power, particularly if you juice tougher items like celery or greens. Look for models upwards of 400 watts.

      ✔️Ease of cleaning: Juicers by design have numerous parts that can be cumbersome to clean. Look for models with dishwasher-safe parts and models that come with cleaning brushes to ensure that you don’t spend more time cleaning than juicing.

      ✔️ Warranty: There’s no question about it — juicers are pricey appliances. If you’re investing in one, it’s worth checking warranty information to ensure you’ll be satisfied for years to come.

      What type of juicer is best?

      If you've been hearing a lot of buzz about cold press juicers lately, you may be wondering what exactly they are and how they differ from all the other types of juicers on the market. The key distinction is in how they work:

      ✔️Cold press juicers, also known as slow juicers or masticating juicers, typically have a narrow vertical chute that feeds healthy fruits and veggies into a chamber where they are pressed by a rotating auger. The juice is then squeezed out through a strainer and into a pitcher, while the pulp is dispensed from another spout.

      ✔️Centrifugal juicers, on the other hand, work similarly but they grind ingredients with a blade and operate at much higher speeds; they can often accommodate larger ingredients.

      ✔️Citrus juicers are designed to squeeze the juice out of lemons, limes and grapefruits, but don't blast through the pulp and skins of ingredients like cold press and centrifugal juicers do.
