The Best Cold Press Juicer

best cold press juicer

The best cold press juicer creates incredibly clear, tasty apple, kale and carrot juice that produces very little wet pulp or foam. It’s expensive, but you’ll likely recoup the cost by making more juice than you would with a centrifugal machine and avoiding waste. It’s also large and takes up quite a bit of counter space, but the parts snap together easily and have clear markings to make it easy to get started. It comes with a small recipe booklet, which is handy for finding ways to use the excess pulp.

The Vitamix 5800 is an impressively versatile machine that works best as a cold press but can also be used to make smoothies, plant-based milks and frozen desserts such as sorbet and nice cream. It’s also a great option for people who like to juice large quantities. Its auger is powerful and moves through produce very quickly, blitzing it into a fine pulp that drains out of the jug. It’s also quiet, and it produces very little foam or wet pulp. It does, however, require a lot of force to feed ingredients through the chute, and some of our testers found it hard to maneuver the juicing nozzle.

The Omega Cold Press 365 packs a solid amount of power into a smaller, lighter machine and offers a low price tag to boot. The resulting juice is delicious, but the machine can be loud and the pulp basket fills up quickly in Lab testing, so it’s better for a single serving at a time.
