We started our Juicers 101 by looking at the most basic juicers  – hand powered Citrus juicers. To read that post go here. Next up is to breeze through Electric Citrus juicing and then we will go into vegetable juicing

Electric Citrus Juicers

What you get with an electric juicer is speed, you also get more juice from your fruit. With an electric motor powering the reamer you expect better extraction and drier pulp.

So let’s look at some of the best selling electric juicers and see what we get…

Looking more like a sleek coffee maker than a citrus juicer the Juiceman JCJ150S 40-Watt Automatic Citrus Juicer gets praise from it’s owners for its good looks.

The body is made from stainless steel and the inner parts that do the juicing are made of black plastic and can be removed and are dishwasher safe. The Juiceman juices citrus fruit from little limes and lemons to grapefruit.

Check it out at Amazon for the best price.


For a more powerful Citrus Juicer, 85 Watts,  the Tribest CS-1000 Citristar Citrus Juicer might be your cup of tea, if you see what I mean. it is easy to clean and gets good reviews.

And the neat white appearance will fit into most kitchens pretty well

Coming in at a little under $200 the Breville Ikon and other models have to show clear advantages if they are going to justify their higher price.

Let’s look at the Breville Ikon now.

Stainless steel breville Ikon 900 watt motor

This has a very powerful motor  – 900 Watts which has 5 speeds to choose from – up to an amazing 12,500 rpm (revs per minute).

This is clearly going to make short work of even big juicing jobs. An 8 ounce glass of juice  is claimed to take 5 seconds.


Breville 800CPXL Die-Cast Stainless-Steel Electric Citrus Press

This might be the best electric citrus juicer.It is described as having industrial strength and being “whisper quiet”.

The strength is provided by the die cast design. The exterior is brushed stainless steel and is backed by a 1 year warranty.
