​Why Trust us?

To make sure the glass of juice you consume from the juicer is fresh and pure, we started by reading up on the various types of juicers and their merits and demerits. We then looked through suggestions of reputed websites and selected some of their picks to analyze. 

Finally, we selected the best sellers from Amazon and Flipkart as well. 

​How we selected?

When we started reading about the various types of juicers we found two main types- centrifugal and masticating. Centrifugal types were the more affordable and popular option while the masticating juicer was the more expensive but more efficient one. So we decided to suggest juicers of both the types. We did not select Juicer Mixer Grinders as they are more of an all in one tool and will definitely give more bang for buck than standalone juicers and will not be fair to compare with standalone juicers. 

To find the best juicer in India we looked through the suggestions of reputed websites like NDTV Food, Trusted Reviews and more. Next, we looked through the best sellers on Amazon and Flipkart. Here we also read through the verified customer reviews to see the pros and cons of each product. We also leaned on our understanding of mixers from our research work while writing our post on the Best Mixer Grinder.

Best juicer in India (Centrifugal)

Philips Viva Juicer

Pros:

  • Powerful 700 Watt motor

  • 2-liter juicing capacity

  • Easy to clean

  • 7.5cm diameter feeding tube

  • Aluminum finish on the outer body

  • Quick juicing

  • 2-year warranty

Cons:

  • Pricey

  • Not that great with dried fruits and leafy greens

  • Not as efficient at juicing as masticating juicers

With its transparent top, aluminum finish and black accents the Philips HR1863/20 is a great looking juicer that is also very well built. The transparent pulp container and lid help you monitor the juicing easily.

Talking about juicing the Philips is a centrifugal juicer which means that a blade connected to a motor spins, crushing the fruits and vegetables and centrifugal force pushes them towards the wall and squeezes the juice out of them. This is a very common type of juicer with the technology also found in most juicer-mixer-grinders. The Philips uses a powerful 700 Watt motor that helps it juice really well and most customers found it could juice up to 2 liters in mere seconds.

To help you juice easily you have a large XL feeding tube (7.5cm diameter) that can easily take a whole apple, carrot or beetroot. Once you are done juicing all the leftover pulp gets collected into the pulp container, this is very convenient as usually in a mixer the pulp simply gets all over the surface of the jar.

To help you clean your juicer once you are done juicing you have two really cool features, first is the pre-clean option where you pour a little water into the machine and it will create a water fountain that will get rid of all fiber present on the sieve. Then there is the sieve itself that has a smooth surface so that you can easily clean it even with a soft kitchen sponge.

For safety, you have safety clamps that prevent the juicer from starting unless the lid is properly secured and you get anti-skid feet to prevent the juicer from moving.

With 4 stars and nearly 1000 reviews, the Philips HR1863/20 is one of the most popular juicers online. People especially loved the speed and quality of juicing, it easy to clean insides and large feeding tube.

The Philips HR1863/20 comes with a 2-year warranty and you have Philips service centers all across India in case you get any issues.

With one of the most powerful motors, large feeding tube, easy clean features and speedy juicing the Philips HR1863/20, despite its price of around Rs.8000 is one the best juicers in India.

Best juicer in India (Budget Centrifugal)

Philips HR1832 Juicer

Pros:

  • Easy to use

  • Easy to clean

  • 1.5-liter juicing capacity

  • 400-watt motor

  • Decent price

  • 2-year warranty

Cons:

  • Small feeding tube

  • Short electric cable

  • Not that great with dried fruits and leafy greens

  • Not as efficient at juicing as masticating juicers

The Philips HR1832/0 is the more affordable version of our best pick and comes with some changes like the motor which is less powerful at 400W or the feeding tube which is smaller (5.5 cm vs 7.5cm) than on the Philips HR1863/20. You also lose out on the pre-clean feature and you can only juice up to 1.5 liters in one go. The Juicer although had the same transparent design as the much more expensive HR1863/20, was now made completely of plastic.  

But everything mentioned above doesn't make it a bad juicer, instead if verified customers are to be believed they loved the juicer because of its value for money. Many said it was very quiet in operation and rarely vibrated, juiced really well and was very easy to clean. With 4.1 stars and nearly 600 reviews, the Philips HR1832/0 is one of the best sellers on Amazon.

The general niggles from people were that the cable was too short and the blades that needed to be cleaned with a brush but that wasn't a big hassle. But almost nobody complained about performance.  

Philips offers a 2-year warranty on the product and with service centres all across India you have nothing to worry about.

The Philips HR1832/00 is one of the most affordable high-quality standalone juicers at around Rs.5500 with decent performance, quiet operation, and easy to clean sieve.

Best juicer in India (Masticating)

Panasonic Mj-L500 juicer

Pros:

  • Low temperature 45rpm juicing

  • Can juice hard vegetables, fruits, green vegetables, nuts & grains, frozen fruits

  • Low noise

  • Extracts more juice with no foam

  • Juice stays fresh even after a day

  • 1-year product + 5-year motor warranty

Cons:

  • Very pricey

While the previous two Philips juicers are great for juicing on a budget if you really need a cold-pressed fresh juice that retains its nutrients than the Panasonic MJ-L500 slow juicer is a must-have. Don't take our word for it, as Trusted Reviews reviewed this product and said that it is as good as having a juice bar on your doorstep, with a frozen dessert parlour next door.

What makes this juicer great is because it squeezes the juice out of the pulp rather than forcing it by spinning it at a high rpm. This squeezing action happens at low temperature and doesn't spoil the juice and hence keeps the juice fresh for more than a day. The squeezing action is created by a screw-shaped device that spins at a slow 45 rpm preventing any form of friction heating and removing as much juice from the pulp as it is possible.

Expert Reviews juiced apples, spinach and pineapple, and frozen fruits and were very impressed with the results. They said that the juicer was fast despite its slow pressing, produced a lot of juice and gave almost dry refuse and was easy to disassemble and clean.

The Panasonic Juicer is not that large and is easy to use as well. You have two spouts, one to release the juice and one for the pulp. You get two containers for each spout and a frozen attachment to make frozen desserts.

Panasonic offers a 1-year warranty on the product and 5-years for the motor and you have many service centres all across India.

The Panasonic MJ-L500 cold press slow juicer is quite possibly one of the best juicers in the market currently. Its high price of around Rs.15,000 is justified because of its efficient juicing, easy usability and ability to juice any type of fruit, vegetable or dry fruits.

After-sales service

The Philips HR1863/20 comes with a 2-year warranty and you have Philips service centers all across India in case you get any issues. Panasonic offers a 1-year warranty on the product and 5-years for the motor.

Both even deliver doorstep service in some areas and they have plenty of service centers across India in case of any issues.

Who are our best picks for?

The two Philips juicers are great if you need to make fruit or vegetable juice and consume them within the day. This is because they are centrifugal juicers that heat up the fruits/ vegetables and have to be consumed quickly but they are priced much lower than cold press juicers. Do note however that the Philips juicers will not be able to juice leafy vegetables and dry fruits properly and you need a masticating cold press juicer for that.

If you want fresh fruit juice filled with all the nutrients that remain fresh for more than a day then pick the Panasonic Masticating cold press juicer. It uses a screw mechanism to squeeze the juice from the fruit gently without heating it thus retaining the nutrients from it. While it is more expensive it is worth it because of its juicing efficiency.

​Types of juicers

Stand-alone juicers are better at the juicing process than normal mixer grinders because they have specialized sieves and separate spools.  While you do get juicer mixer grinders they are a multipurpose equipment for tasks more than juicing and can take up a lot of space in your kitchen. Under stand-alone juicers, there are many different types but two of the most common ones are as follows.

Centrifugal Juicer

Uses high-speed blades to cut through the fruits/ vegetables and spinning them at high speed due to a centrifugal force which forces them to release the juice from the pulp.

Advantages of Centrifugal Juicer:

  • Affordable when compared to Cold press juicer

  • Easy to clean due to fewer parts

  • Quick juicing

  • Popular with many options in the market

Disadvantages of Centrifugal Juicer:

  • Too much foaming of the juices

  • Juice has to consumed instantly

  • Extracts lesser juice from vegetables/ fruits than masticating juicers

  • Cant process leafy vegetables and dried fruits

Masticating  or Cold Press Juicer

As the name suggests they extract juice by slowly squeezing the fruits thus preventing them from heating up and keeping them fresh to drink for a long time. They are far more expensive than normal juicers and take more time to juice as well.

Advantages of Masticating Juicer:

  • Foam-free and fresh juicing

  • Juice extracted can be stored for longer than a day

  • Can easily juice all types of vegetables, fruits, frozen fruits, dry fruits and leafy vegetables

  • Due to low speed, it can extract juice more efficiently than regular juicers

Disadvantages of Masticating Juicer:

  • Priced at quite a premium over regular juicers

  • Have a lot of parts that can make cleaning more tedious

  • Slower than regular juicers

  • Fewer options in the market

Final Thoughts

If you are in the market for a juicer then our three best picks should suit you well.

If you need the best centrifugal juicer that is fast at extracting juice, is easy to use and clean then the Philips HR1863/20 make a great addition to your kitchen.

However, if you want a juicer that is easier on the wallet but similar to the Philips HR1863/20 then you can pick the Philips HR1832/00, which while a little less powerful and smaller is still a capable juicer for your home. 

If you, however, need the ultimate juicer and you are willing to spend then the Panasonic Cold Press Juicer is perfect for you. It juices efficiently keeping all the nutrients and giving you only fresh juice from fruits and vegetables.
