For us when it comes to the juicing scene, the NutriBullet is the daddy of all machines. It may be small, but it’s powerful, with a 600W motor. The NutriBullet actually prides itself on being an extractor rather than your typical blender or juicer – meaning it completely breaks down food. It pulverises stems, seeds and skins where some of the usually neglected essential nutrition lies. It’s also one of the most compact around, super easy to clean, and reasonably priced.
Sage by Heston Blumenthal the Nutri Juicer Pro, £299
Anything that has Heston Blumenthal’s name alongside it is going to be impressive. The big selling point for this juicer is its bigger chute, which allows you to juice bigger fruit and vegetables – you can pop in an apple, or whole carrot with no problem at all. The multiple speed control allows you to apply as much power as needed and the 1500W motor means you juice with quick results. Its automatic pulp ejection is a great feature too, so it’s nice and easy to clean.
Magimix Le Duo Plus XL Juice Extracto, £179.99
One of the most attractive of all juicers, the Magimix Le Duo Plus XL Juice Extracto comes with three attachments: a juice extractor, smoothie mix and citrus press. Pouring nutritious fresh fruit and vegetable juices straight into your glass; it’s a pretty speedy process. By adding the smoothie attachment to the juice extractor basket, you can juice soft fruits and cooked vegetables for the extraction of thick creamy jus or purées, so it’s a good solution for preparing baby’s first food, too.
