  • All centrifugal juicers create heat and oxidation thus reducing the nutritional value of the juice and decreasing its shelf life. Consume the juice immediately after making it.

Who Is This Juicer For Or Not?

If you are looking for a quick and convenient way to start your juicing habit, this is a good starter. The price is lowest in its class. The wide mouth feed chute cuts prep time down considerably.

However, if you are into or intend to get into juicing on a more serious basis or to make a healthier juice, then you should be considering a masticating type or even a Champion juicer. Click here to find out about these more powerful, heavy-duty juicers.

Customer Reviews

Average 4.1 out of 5 stars (77% = 4 or 5 out of 5 stars)

By C Parker on April 11, 2012
Color: Black/Verified Purchase

I purchased this juicer after reading the book “Fat, Sick, and Nearly Dead” in which they recommend very nice juicers ranging from $300-$400+. After checking Consumer Reports in which this Hamilton Beach juicer is one of their recommended buys, it seemed to be a no-brainer. This thing rocks! Leftover pulp is dry dry dry, I can’t imagine any other juicer doing a better job of extracting all the juice. And it doesn’t matter what it is – apples, oranges, cucumbers, carrots, leafy greens like spinach and kale, it makes juice of them all with ease.

And clean up is a snap (and I HATE appliances that are not easy to clean, and usually end up not using them just so I don’t have to clean them). This juicer comes with a handy little brush that gets into all the little spaces and cleans the filter with little to no effort. Very few pieces – just rinse the 4 pieces with hot water and brush clean the filter and that’s it! Easy peasy.

The one reason I didn’t give it a perfect 5 stars…
No container included to catch your juice, you must use your own receptacle which is a pain if you’re making any more than one large coffee cups worth. You have to do multiple cups of multiple veggies and fruits and mix them all together in the end.
Couple cleaning tips: Spray the pulp container lightly with Pam or non-stick spray lightly before using and the stuff will slide right out. And, after all juicing is done, put a small amount of hot water through the juicer – this makes the filter much easier to clean.

Came on time. Works great. Maybe I’m new to juicing but I wish it extracted more juice. I feel the pulpy stuff in the back is pretty moist and it’s kinda wasteful.
Would recommend for first time users. I may upgrade to one that is more efficient and uses more of the produce if I can find one, I feel like I’d put in the veggies or fruit and they were spat out the back so fast with minimal juice.

This juicer does a great job! Some comments stated that there was a lot of moisture, or juice, left in the pulp. We really haven’t found that to be the case. Of course, some veggies and fruits have more juice, but overall the pulp is bone dry. It’s very easy to clean, use the brush it comes with and it’s a breeze. It’s loud, but we expected that. For the price, you just can’t go wrong!

Two stars because after only having it for 2.5 weeks, it’s stopped working/won’t turn on when it’s assembled. Super disappointed because we’re in the middle of our juice cleanse and now we have to stop and start over in a week when the new one gets here… We purchased this one for the price and it has great reviews, but we tried every troubleshooting option in the handbook and nothing works. While we did have it I juiced carrots, celery, oranges, parsley, cilantro, all was great. Amazon is sending me a new one free of charge, and hopefully, that one lasts a long time.
