The best auger juicers in 2022

Screw juicers allow you to keep the max­i­mum amount of vit­a­mins and use­ful trace ele­ments in fresh juice. Also, such a device will cope with both hard prod­ucts and soft ones. Against the back­drop of glob­al inter­est in healthy lifestyles and prop­er nutri­tion, we talk about the best auger juicers in 2022

A screw juicer is a house­hold appli­ance for the kitchen, designed to squeeze “clean” juice with a min­i­mum amount of pulp from veg­eta­bles, berries and herbs. The oper­a­tion of the unit in ques­tion takes place on the prin­ci­ple of an elec­tric meat grinder: a spi­ral auger is installed inside the juicer, which scrolls the prod­ucts, turn­ing them into a state of gru­el, and squeezes the juice through a sieve to fil­ter large par­ti­cles due to pres­sure.

This house­hold appli­ance is per­fect for peo­ple who mon­i­tor their health and nutri­tion. After all, the ben­e­fits of fresh­ly squeezed juices are that they fill the body with ener­gy, vit­a­mins, help pro­long beau­ty and youth, quench thirst and even hunger.

The advan­tages of screw juicers are in the low noise lev­el (40 dB), and also in the fact that the juice is squeezed out at low speeds (50–65 rpm) and there­fore does not oxi­dize, and there­fore all valu­able microele­ments and vit­a­mins are pre­served.

There are two types of auger juicers:

Hor­i­zon­tal They have a clas­sic look, out­ward­ly resem­bling a meat grinder. When using this juicer, pre­lim­i­nary prepa­ra­tion of veg­eta­bles and fruits is required (cut­ting into small pieces) and direct par­tic­i­pa­tion in the cook­ing process (man­u­al “push­er”). They are con­sid­ered more durable — the elec­tric motor is sep­a­rat­ed from the auger, which pre­vents the juice from flow­ing into the motor, there­by extend­ing the life of the unit;
ver­ti­cal The auger is locat­ed ver­ti­cal­ly, so the tech­nique itself cap­tures the ingre­di­ents, and the use of a push­er is required only when nec­es­sary. They have a high­er pro­cess­ing speed (200–500 W), unlike hor­i­zon­tal ones (200–300 W). The device takes up less space on the work­ing sur­face, but these rep­re­sen­ta­tives are usu­al­ly high­er in height.

We present to your atten­tion the rat­ing of auger juicers in 2022, which is com­piled on the basis of tech­ni­cal char­ac­ter­is­tics and cus­tomer reviews on the Inter­net.

Atv­el Pow­er­Twist J3. Pho­to: yandex.market.ru

The effi­cient and ver­sa­tile Atv­el Pow­er­Twist J3 hor­i­zon­tal juicer pro­duces up to 90% juice from any veg­etable or fruit. The sev­en-way auger and design allow you to get a rich and tasty high-den­si­ty drink with­out sed­i­ment and foam, even from whim­si­cal prod­ucts, such as cel­ery and wheat­grass. Cold press­ing tech­nol­o­gy con­tributes to the com­plete preser­va­tion of min­er­als, vit­a­mins and enzymes in the fin­ished juice.

Low pow­er con­sump­tion of 150 W allows you to save on elec­tric­i­ty. The qual­i­ty of the juicer is as effi­cient as pos­si­ble — the DC motor and worm-type gear­box act­ing in con­junc­tion pro­vide high torque for pro­cess­ing prod­ucts, equiv­a­lent to a clas­si­cal device with a pow­er of more than 1500 watts.

Atv­el Pow­er­Twist J3 is made of durable, high-qual­i­ty and envi­ron­men­tal­ly friend­ly mate­ri­als that do not emit harm­ful sub­stances. A small fill­ing open­ing ensures the safe­ty of using the juicer: even the hand of a small child can­not get inside the device and, there­fore, on the auger. Thanks to the qui­et oper­a­tion of the device (less than 60 dB), you can make juice at any time of the day or night.

Expand­ing the func­tion­al­i­ty of the Atv­el Pow­er­Twist J3 juicer is not dif­fi­cult: you can pur­chase brand­ed addi­tion­al attach­ments that will turn it into a full-fledged meat grinder or elec­tric grater.

The device is con­trolled by a sin­gle but­ton (on and off) locat­ed on the case. The device is effort­less­ly dis­as­sem­bled (all parts are remov­able) and washed thanks to a spe­cial dou­ble-sided brush includ­ed in the kit. The juicer has a light­weight design and com­pact­ness, which will allow you to car­ry it if nec­es­sary and place it on small coun­ter­tops.

Main characteristics

Pow­er 150 W
Turnovers 95 rpm
Time of con­tin­u­ous work 20 min­utes
Noise lev­el no more than 60 dB
Juice tank vol­ume 0.7 l

Addi­tion­al func­tions auto pow­er off, net­work over­load pro­tec­tion

Pros and cons

Smooth start of the engine, easy to assem­ble, dis­as­sem­ble and wash, qui­et oper­a­tion, pro­duc­tive, mul­ti­func­tion­al (the abil­i­ty to change the noz­zles for a meat grinder and an elec­tric grater), safe, juic­ing from “com­plex” prod­ucts, com­pact­ness and light­ness, made of envi­ron­men­tal­ly friend­ly mate­ri­als, full preser­va­tion of vit­a­mins in fin­ished prod­uct

The small-sized mod­el, accord­ing to the assem­bly prin­ci­ple, resem­bles an elec­tric meat grinder. The size of the load­ing open­ing is not very large (48 × 53 mm), which may seem like a minus — it will not be pos­si­ble to use large pieces of food, cut­ting into small­er pieces will be required. The kit includes a push­er, which will avoid con­tact of fin­gers with mov­ing parts of the device. To pro­tect against slip­ping on the work­ing sur­face, the mod­el has rub­ber­ized legs.

The low-speed spin tech­nol­o­gy (80–100 rpm) is used, there is only one speed of oper­a­tion, but there is a “Reverse” mode — a reverse stroke, which is use­ful if, for exam­ple, the screw is jammed or the juicer needs to be cleaned with­out dis­as­sem­bling it. For juice and pulp there are spe­cial plas­tic con­tain­ers with a vol­ume of 600 ml and 570 ml, and there is also a sep­a­ra­tor for sep­a­rat­ing the foam. It is also pos­si­ble to use your own con­tain­er, but in this case its height should not exceed 10 cm.

It is easy to take care of the device: it is dis­as­sem­bled in one move­ment, the parts are easy to clean, as they are made of plas­tic. A brush is includ­ed for clean­ing the met­al fil­ter.

The auto­mat­ic shut­down sys­tem inter­rupts the oper­a­tion of the juicer in case of over­heat­ing of the motor. The man­u­fac­tur­er does not advise exceed­ing the rec­om­mend­ed con­tin­u­ous use time, which is 15 min­utes. The plus­es, accord­ing to con­sumer reviews, include the almost silent oper­a­tion of this mod­el.

Of the minus­es, we can dis­tin­guish that the case is made of plas­tic. This cri­te­ri­on may scare off a poten­tial buy­er, because plas­tic is not con­sid­ered a durable mate­r­i­al for every­one, more often stain­less steel mod­els are pre­ferred.

Main characteristics

Con­trol type mechan­i­cal
Pow­er 150 W
Vol­umes of con­tain­ers for juice/cake 600 ml/570 ml
Hous­ing mate­r­i­al plas­tic
The weight 3.7 kg

Pros and cons

Reversible, easy clean­ing, qui­et oper­a­tion
Nar­row neck, unre­li­able design (plas­tic case, which does not inspire con­fi­dence in qual­i­ty, seems flim­sy)

The elec­tron­i­cal­ly con­trolled Wil­fa SJ1B-500 juicer is dis­tin­guished not only by its styl­ish appear­ance, but also by the pres­ence of a wide load­ing open­ing (50 × 60 mm), which will save you unnec­es­sary trou­ble — there is no need to cut the fruits into small pieces to load them into the device. This mod­el has an auto­mat­ic pulp ejec­tion sys­tem, which helps to reduce the amount of fibers enter­ing the juice. Of the dif­fer­ences from oth­er juicers — small col­lec­tion tanks for juice and cake (50 liters each).

The mod­el is good because the man­u­fac­tur­er has pro­vid­ed in it a built-in “drop-stop” sys­tem that does not allow the rem­nants of a fresh­ly squeezed drink to spill onto the kitchen sur­faces, as well as to fill in a run­ning engine. Of the addi­tion­al func­tion­al­i­ty, there is a tur­bo mode and reverse. The mod­el is capa­ble of squeez­ing juice from both hard and soft fruits, and there is a spe­cial ring to adjust the squeez­ing of a par­tic­u­lar prod­uct.

The kit includes a clean­ing brush, a remov­able juice tank, a push­er and a pulp tray. The rota­tion speed is 80 rpm — thanks to this screw speed, the engine runs qui­et­ly (the vol­ume of the device does not exceed 75 dB). The case is made of plas­tic, which can be attrib­uted to a dis­ad­van­tage, since steel mod­els inspire more con­fi­dence by increas­ing the life of the device.

Main characteristics

Con­trol type elec­tron­ic
Pow­er 150 W
Vol­umes of con­tain­ers for juice/cake 500 ml/500 ml
Hous­ing mate­r­i­al plas­tic
The weight 5.5 kg

Pros and cons

Drip-stop sys­tem, adjust­ment for squeez­ing prod­ucts of var­i­ous hard­ness and soft­ness
Small vol­ume of tanks (accord­ing to cus­tomer reviews), plas­tic case

3. New Omra OM-2820‑E

The mod­el is more pro­fes­sion­al and suit­able for pro­cess­ing large vol­umes of veg­eta­bles and fruits. The diam­e­ter of the fun­nel (26 cm) and the width of the load­ing open­ing (75 mm) allow you to load whole fruits. The push­er for more con­ve­nient load­ing of prod­ucts is includ­ed in the pack­age. The body and mesh are made of stain­less steel. If desired, the device can be retro­fit­ted with a meat grinder attach­ment (not includ­ed in the kit, pur­chased sep­a­rate­ly).

Pro­fes­sion­al juicer for veg­eta­bles and fruits is equipped with a gear­box for more pow­er (400 W), has pro­tec­tion against over­loads and acci­den­tal acti­va­tion. Of the minus­es — only one speed of oper­a­tion (90 rpm), the absence of con­tain­ers for juice and cake (you will need your own con­tain­er), as well as a weight of 10 kilo­grams, which can cause incon­ve­nience when oper­at­ing in an apart­ment.

The mod­el is mul­ti­func­tion­al — in addi­tion to a nat­ur­al drink, you can pro­duce veg­etable and fruit purees, as well as process greens, var­i­ous hard fruits and nuts, regard­less of their ripeness. Accord­ing to the man­u­fac­tur­er, the device can process 400 kg of veg­eta­bles or fruits per hour, which is undoubt­ed­ly an advan­tage when choos­ing an auger juicer.

Main characteristics

Con­trol type elec­tric
Pow­er 400 W
Vol­umes of con­tain­ers for juice/cake miss­ing
Hous­ing mate­r­i­al alu­mini­um, stain­less steel, plas­tic
The weight 11.8 kg

Pros and cons

Ide­al for high vol­umes (400 kg/h pro­cess­ing), high qual­i­ty mate­ri­als and work­man­ship
Heavy weight, no capac­i­ty for juice and cake

A mod­ern silent auger-type juicer, which man­aged to com­bine a huge num­ber of sig­nif­i­cant advan­tages. One speed of rota­tion of the screw (48 rpm) is pro­vid­ed. The design itself con­sists of a motor (220 W), a sep­a­ra­tor bowl, a fil­ter, an auger, a top cov­er with a load­ing chute and a push­er. Of the use­ful func­tions: a reverse, which ensures the reverse move­ment of the mech­a­nism, and a drop-stop sys­tem to keep the work sur­face clean.

The kit includes a spe­cial brush for quick clean­ing, as well as a use­ful device — an apple cut­ter (a man­u­al device for cut­ting apples into slices). The neck is not the widest (50 mm), pre­lim­i­nary prepa­ra­tion of large fruits will be required.

Mechan­i­cal con­trol (pow­er but­ton, stop and reverse), and there are also two trans­par­ent liter con­tain­ers designed for sep­a­rate intake of juice and pulp. The max­i­mum con­tin­u­ous oper­a­tion time is 15 min­utes, then it is required to stop the device for 30 min­utes (as rec­om­mend­ed by the man­u­fac­tur­er).

Hyundai HY-JS4322 is an excel­lent rep­re­sen­ta­tive in terms of price-qual­i­ty ratio. Unfor­tu­nate­ly, there is no addi­tion­al mesh for fil­ter­ing the drink from the cake, but the device does an excel­lent job with the tasks: the waste is dry, and the juice is squeezed as much as pos­si­ble with­out pulp.

The device has a sta­ble hous­ing made of stain­less steel with anti-slip feet. The main parts are also made of stain­less steel (body, mesh). The remain­ing com­po­nents are plas­tic, but no less durable (load­ing chute, push­er).

Main characteristics

Con­trol type mechan­i­cal
Pow­er 220 W
Vol­umes of con­tain­ers for juice/cake 1000/1000 ml
Hous­ing mate­r­i­al stain­less steel

KING MIX GP-20S. Pho­to: yandex.market.ru

The King Mix GP-20S is a styl­ish mod­el with a stain­less steel body that ensures dura­bil­i­ty and resis­tance to exter­nal influ­ences. The juicer motor reduc­er is equipped with a met­al gear, which increas­es the dura­tion of the device (con­tin­u­ous oper­a­tion time — 30 min­utes). The mod­el has an extend­ed neck with a diam­e­ter of 80 mm, which allows you to load prod­ucts with­out pri­or prepa­ra­tion or with min­i­mal cut­ting.

Thanks to a pow­er­ful motor (250 W) and a ver­ti­cal auger speed of up to 50 rpm, the juicer does an excel­lent job of extract­ing juice from both hard and soft foods. Of the fea­tures: the pres­ence of two grids for squeez­ing juice, which will allow you to get a homo­ge­neous juice or smooth puree.
The juicer is also easy to assem­ble and easy to clean, and it comes with a clean­ing brush.

Of the minus­es: the lack of spare parts for sale on the offi­cial web­site of the brand, in the event of a break­down of parts or replace­ment of seals, it will be dif­fi­cult to repair the unit on your own. And also the weight — this mod­el is quite weighty (9.2 kg).

Main characteristics

Con­trol type mechan­i­cal
Pow­er 250 W
Vol­umes of con­tain­ers for juice/cake 500 ml/500 ml
Hous­ing mate­r­i­al alu­mini­um, stain­less steel, plas­tic

The juicer has an auger (48 rpm), made of high­ly durable Ultem plas­tic, which is resis­tant to the devel­op­ment of bac­te­ria and does not absorb odors. Dur­ing oper­a­tion, the juicer imi­tates man­u­al extrac­tion, so the prod­ucts do not oxi­dize, and all vit­a­mins and microele­ments are pre­served in the fin­ished drink.

The mod­el has a valve for the exit of cake with a spe­cial mod­ern­ized design, so the pulp does not splash, but smooth­ly enters the con­tain­er (500 ml). The juice extrac­tor process­es any prod­ucts: both soft, and firm. A pow­er­ful 400 W motor, man­u­fac­tured using a spe­cial tech­nol­o­gy, guar­an­tees high qual­i­ty press­ing of soft fruits and veg­eta­bles, hard root crops and even nuts.

The juicer con­sists of struc­tur­al ele­ments that are made of cop­per and spe­cial mate­ri­als that are not sub­ject to oxi­da­tion. There­fore, the device will last for a long time — at least 5 years accord­ing to the man­u­fac­tur­er.

You don’t have to wor­ry about the safe­ty of oper­a­tion: if the ele­ments are installed incor­rect­ly, the device will not turn on, and if used for a long time, it will not over­heat, since there is an auto­mat­ic shut­down. Of the minus­es, buy­ers high­light the too noisy oper­a­tion of the juicer (the declared noise lev­el is 40–60 dB), as well as the heavy weight of 8.3 kilo­grams.

Main characteristics

Screw juicer Kit­fort KT-1122 (pow­er 200 W) works on cold press­ing tech­nol­o­gy. Its work­ing ele­ment rotates at a speed of 68 rev­o­lu­tions per minute to avoid heat­ing and oxi­da­tion of the prod­uct. At the same time, vit­a­mins, amino acids, min­er­als and oth­er use­ful sub­stances are pre­served.

The device has a spi­ral screw press, which cap­tures veg­eta­bles, fruits and herbs well. It crush­es even dense fruits, and then push­es them through the fil­ter — it takes a few sec­onds to sep­a­rate the juice from the cake.

Thanks to the “stop-drop” sys­tem, the table on which the device stands will remain clean. The body is made of strong and durable stain­less steel. There are rub­ber feet for added sta­bil­i­ty. The set includes two small tanks: for juice (600 ml) and waste (600 ml).

Of the plus­es, it is worth high­light­ing that the mod­el is light (3.9 kg) — this allows you to move it eas­i­ly if nec­es­sary. The device is easy to assem­ble and wash. Accord­ing to cus­tomer reviews, the dis­ad­van­tages of the mod­el include the noisy oper­a­tion of the device (noise lev­el 74 dB), as well as a nar­row load­ing chute of 50 mm, which requires pre­lim­i­nary prepa­ra­tion of the fruit.

Lex­en Healthy Juicer Man­u­al GP27‑B. Pho­to: yandex.market.ru

Lex­en Healthy Juicer GP27 is a light­weight (1 kg) man­u­al mobile juicer that does not require elec­tric­i­ty. Out­ward­ly, the device looks like a meat grinder famil­iar to every­one with a han­dle for rota­tion, but with­out an elec­tric dri­ve. Made of met­al and plas­tic — due to this it com­bines strength and low cost.

The dif­fer­ence between the mod­el is that the auger is made with a stain­less steel tip, and not nylon (as a rule). This improves both the per­for­mance and dura­bil­i­ty of the instru­ment.

Man­u­al juicers are often much eas­i­er to clean than their elec­tric coun­ter­parts due to the mul­ti­ple dis­man­tling parts. The device does not have met­al cut­ting blades with small holes, from which it is nec­es­sary to clean the fruit fibers with a brush. Excess pulp is gen­tly eject­ed from the front cov­er for easy dis­pos­al. The base of the case is equipped with a suc­tion cup for attach­ing the device to any work sur­face.

As a dis­ad­van­tage, one can cite low pro­duc­tiv­i­ty and the absence of con­tain­ers for liq­uid and cake. Recy­cling sig­nif­i­cant vol­umes will require a large amount of time com­pared to elec­tri­cal com­peti­tors.

2. “Motor Sich SBC‑1”

“Motor Sich SBCh‑1”. Pho­to: yandex.market.ru

The man­u­al auger juicer “Motor Sich” is an indis­pens­able tool for pre­serv­ing and har­vest­ing for the win­ter and pro­cess­ing a large num­ber of fruits (3 kg with­out fil­ter clean­ing), both soft (for exam­ple, toma­toes) and hard. The mech­a­nism of a man­u­al auger juicer is designed as fol­lows: dur­ing the rota­tion of the screw shaft, the juice is squeezed out of the crushed mass due to pres­sure, then the juice is divid­ed into cake, which auto­mat­i­cal­ly comes out of a spe­cial hole.

The design of the juicer is equipped with a mech­a­nism for con­trol­ling the inten­si­ty of the juice out­put and a pro­tec­tive cov­er that pre­vents splash­ing. The mod­el is silent due to the absence of an elec­tric dri­ve.

There is a dif­fer­ence from mod­els with an elec­tric dri­ve — the device has no restric­tions on the oper­at­ing time, and the per­for­mance depends direct­ly on the con­sumer. The device is sim­ply dis­as­sem­bled and assem­bled, and the kit comes with a deep round bowl for lay­ing fruits. Quite sta­ble, as it is installed on the work sur­face and does not slip due to its weight (3.7 kg) and rub­ber­ized mount.

The unlim­it­ed ser­vice life of the juicer is pro­vid­ed by cast iron — a durable and wear-resis­tant mate­r­i­al. The dis­ad­van­tages include the lack of bowls for juice and cake (addi­tion­al costs for the pur­chase of con­tain­ers will be required). Also, accord­ing to cus­tomer reviews, pre-treat­ment of large fruits is need­ed.

Man­u­al auger juicer Augustin Welz AW-2103 is ide­al for home use. The machine can be used any­where as there is no need to con­nect to a net­work. The mod­el can squeeze juice from almost any veg­etable and fruit, as well as from decid­u­ous veg­eta­bles, herbs and herba­ceous plants, which are not easy to squeeze in devices with a cen­trifuge. The mod­el has few parts, so it is easy to dis­as­sem­ble and reassem­ble (they can also be washed in a dish­wash­er).

The mod­el is equipped with a spi­ral auger that runs at low speed and auto­mat­i­cal­ly sep­a­rates the cake, pulp and bones. Thanks to the man­u­al con­trol, the noise lev­el remains at a low lev­el. The mouth is not wide (50 mm), which entails the pre­lim­i­nary prepa­ra­tion of prod­ucts.

The juicer is light (1.5 kg), as it is made of plas­tic that can with­stand mechan­i­cal stress and not deform, and also does not absorb for­eign odors. The device comes com­plete with a spe­cial durable push­er, with which the use of the device becomes more com­fort­able. Also in the pack­age there is a glass (500 ml) with a strain­er for addi­tion­al fil­tra­tion and a con­tain­er (500 ml) for the cake remain­ing as a result of pro­cess­ing.

The dis­ad­van­tages include that the mod­el is not suit­able for veg­eta­bles and fruits with a low fiber con­tent, name­ly grapes, gua­va, toma­toes, since when man­u­al­ly squeez­ing such prod­ucts, it will not be pos­si­ble to squeeze juice from such prod­ucts, but only grind them into a puree.

The styl­ish graphite ver­ti­cal mod­el from the Polaris brand has 1000 ml juice bowls and 800 ml processed pulp col­lec­tion bowls. In the kit you can find an ice cream fil­ter and two addi­tion­al noz­zles — a veg­etable cut­ter and a grater. Of the use­ful func­tions: “drop-stop” to keep the work sur­face clean dur­ing cook­ing, as well as reverse to get the max­i­mum amount of juice. The pow­er of the mod­el is 600 W, and the rota­tion speed of the screw is 50–60 rpm.

The width of the neck is 78 mm, but, accord­ing to the instruc­tions from the man­u­fac­tur­er, pre­lim­i­nary prepa­ra­tion of the fruit (cut­ting) is required. The juicer is equipped with a touch pan­el with 9 modes: for hard, medi­um and soft prod­ucts, the Mix option, a sep­a­rate pro­gram for veg­eta­bles, smooth­ies, a grater, ice cream, and a clean­ing func­tion.
The motor over­heat­ing pro­tec­tion func­tion will increase the ser­vice life and reli­a­bil­i­ty of the device when used.

The device has non-slip feet, which reduces vibra­tion dur­ing oper­a­tion and ensures a low noise lev­el. Accord­ing to cus­tomer reviews, the mod­el is quite high, which can cause dis­com­fort when work­ing in a small kitchen or in anoth­er room.

Gar­lyn J‑600 Max8. Pho­to: yandex.market.ru

The Gar­lyn J‑600 Max juicer with a pow­er of 580 watts uses cold-pressed screw tech­nol­o­gy at a speed of 55 rev­o­lu­tions per minute. Equipped with 8 auto­mat­ic pro­grams suit­able for fruits of dif­fer­ent tex­tures. The touch pan­el allows you to select the desired option with one touch: for hard veg­eta­bles and fruits, for fruits of medi­um and soft hard­ness, a spe­cial veg­etable mode, a func­tion for extract­ing milk from nuts, cut­ting and chop­ping and clean­ing the device.

It has a wide mouth (800 mm), which allows you to use whole fruits with­out cut­ting them into pieces. Comes with fil­ters to reduce the amount of pulp in the juice. The reverse func­tion is pro­vid­ed as a sep­a­rate but­ton on the pan­el — if an impass­able prod­uct gets into the bowl, it is enough to turn the screw auger coun­ter­clock­wise. The device works con­tin­u­ous­ly for up to 20 min­utes, it is addi­tion­al­ly equipped with a block­ing against over­loads and over­heat­ing.

The appear­ance is pre­sent­ed in a clas­sic ver­ti­cal design and a styl­ish dark body col­or, which can also be a plus when choos­ing a device. The kit includes noz­zles for mak­ing ice cream and rub­bing veg­eta­bles and fruits.

Minor minus: the juicer has a lot of parts for assem­bly and dis­as­sem­bly that need to be washed. Accord­ing to con­sumer reviews, this mod­el has a nar­row waste out­let (3 mm), which implies fre­quent clean­ing of the device dur­ing oper­a­tion.

Pana­son­ic MJ-L500. Pho­to: yandex.market.ru

The Pana­son­ic MJ-L500STQ juicer is a high-per­for­mance 150W auger type device from the Japan­ese brand. For juice, you can use any hard and soft veg­eta­bles, fruits, as well as herbs. High-qual­i­ty assem­bly and mate­ri­als — there is no smell of plas­tic and there are no gaps. It oper­ates qui­et­ly in the 65 dB range, while stand­ing firm­ly on the work sur­face thanks to sil­i­cone suc­tion cup feet. At the bot­tom of the device there is a device for lim­it­ing the length of the cord.

The mouth and the width of the feed chute (50 mm) are rather nar­row — pre-cut­ting of the prod­ucts is required. There is a valve for shut­ting off the juice and a reverse func­tion. The device oper­ates at low speed (45 rpm), due to which the nutri­tion­al ele­ments of the drink are not destroyed. The juicer comes with 900 ml and 1200 ml juice and pulp con­tain­ers.

The run time is up to 15 min­utes with­out stop­ping, then the engine will need a break of 30 min­utes, accord­ing to the man­u­fac­tur­er. The dis­ad­van­tages, accord­ing to con­sumer reviews, include slow oper­a­tion — the juice flows into a glass for a rather long time. There is also no addi­tion­al mesh to fil­ter the juice. Of the fea­tures — the kit includes a spe­cial noz­zle for mak­ing sor­bet, which expands the func­tions of the pre­sent­ed mod­el.

Scar­lett SC-JE50S54 is a 150W auger juicer with a stain­less steel fil­ter. It process­es large and small fruits and veg­eta­bles, berries and herbs. The time of con­tin­u­ous oper­a­tion, accord­ing to the man­u­fac­tur­er, is 15 min­utes. In turn, auto­mat­ic block­ing is respon­si­ble for the safe­ty of use in case of incor­rect assem­bly and over­load. This rep­re­sen­ta­tive has a reverse func­tion, which will allow the stuck pieces of fruit to scroll again and squeeze the juice again.

The prin­ci­ple of oper­a­tion, like most rep­re­sen­ta­tives, is cold press­ing at a screw speed of 70 rpm. The neck is small in width (40 mm), so pre­lim­i­nary prepa­ra­tion of large fruits will be required.

Also, the device is equipped with a “drop-stop” sys­tem. Suc­tion cups in the low­er part of the body ensure the sta­bil­i­ty of the device on the sur­face. The kit also includes a clean­ing brush, which is very con­ve­nient to wash parts (accord­ing to con­sumer reviews). One of the advan­tages is the pres­ence of a noz­zle for mak­ing sor­bet — ide­al for lovers of home­made berry ice cream.

Ours­son JM6001/IV is an easy-to-use and extreme­ly pow­er­ful (250 W) plas­tic auger juicer with a speed of 65 rpm and is equipped with a three-lev­el fil­ter mesh. The pre­sent­ed option will help to pre­pare fresh from var­i­ous berries, fruits, veg­eta­bles and herbs. The width of the mouth (75 mm) makes it pos­si­ble to load whole and unpeeled and unpeeled fruits with­out pri­or prepa­ra­tion.

The con­trol pan­el is rep­re­sent­ed by only one switch to turn on the device and acti­vate the reverse. The mod­el is equipped with a spe­cial “drop-stop” sys­tem. There is a small cap on the drain spout that pre­vents the juice from flood­ing the work sur­face.

The base of the juicer is com­ple­ment­ed by rub­ber­ized legs, with the help of which the device is sta­bly locat­ed on any sur­face. Also, the device has an auto­mat­ic shut­down mech­a­nism in case of over­heat­ing. The device comes with two liter tanks with han­dles: for drink and col­lec­tion of cake, as well as a brush for clean­ing the fil­ter.

Of the advan­tages, it is worth high­light­ing the ease of assem­bly of the pre­sent­ed juicer, since, accord­ing to cus­tomer reviews, the parts are marked with dots for com­fort­able assem­bly. The dis­ad­van­tages include the fact that there are parts that are hard to reach for wash­ing, for exam­ple, a waste ejec­tion hole, but with the help of the brush in the kit you can cope with this task.

Cecotec Juice&Live 3000 Easy­Clean. Pho­to: yandex.market.ru

The 150W Cecotec Juice & Live 3000 Easy­Clean juicer extracts up to 90% juice from berries, fruits and veg­eta­bles. Thanks to the tech­nol­o­gy of cold press­ing at a slow speed (50 rpm), the tem­per­a­ture caused by the pres­sure at the moment of press­ing does not exceed 40°. The device is designed to pre­pare juices, smooth­ies, and nuts and berries can also be added as ingre­di­ents.

The non-reverse juicer sep­a­rates the juice from the pulp with the help of the inno­v­a­tive Easy­Clean fil­ter. It is eas­i­ly cleaned under run­ning water with­out the need for addi­tion­al brush­es. To pre­vent splash­ing of juice, the spout of the device is equipped with a tip. All parts of the mod­el can be eas­i­ly dis­as­sem­bled and cleaned under run­ning water or in a dish­wash­er.

The built-in pro­tec­tion sys­tem against over­heat­ing and unin­ten­tion­al switch­ing on reduces the risk of dam­age to the device. The set includes glass­es for juice and cake with vol­umes of 800 ml, there is no mesh for addi­tion­al fil­ter­ing of drinks. The juicer is made of envi­ron­men­tal­ly friend­ly and durable tri­tan (a kind of plas­tic), which does not absorb odors and is char­ac­ter­ized by increased strength and resis­tance to high tem­per­a­tures. Accord­ing to cus­tomer reviews, the waste exit hole is often clogged dur­ing oper­a­tion, which should be con­sid­ered when choos­ing.

LINNBERG ABC. Pho­to: yandex.market.ru

Slow spin (55 rpm) of this mod­el allows you to save all the valu­able prop­er­ties of any fruit or veg­etable. The juicer is easy to assem­ble and dis­as­sem­ble, and all work­ing parts are removed from it. It also pro­vides the pos­si­bil­i­ty of express clean­ing of the device — for this you need to pour a few glass­es of water into the juicer and turn on the device.

Of the inter­est­ing fea­tures: a smart-lid that will help in the prepa­ra­tion of mixed drinks — you need to install the lid and turn on the device — the juice will mix on its own, and an already homo­ge­neous mixed drink will enter the glass. The valve also keeps the work sur­face clean and serves as an “anti-drip”. The pow­er of the device is 150 W, there are also tanks for juice and waste, the vol­ume of which is 1000 ml each.

In order to squeeze the max­i­mum amount of juice out of the prod­uct, the Pulp Con­trol sys­tem is installed at the exit of the pulp from the juicer. It con­trols the degree of press­ing, reduc­ing the mois­ture con­tent of the cake. There is also a reverse func­tion for quick clean­ing and recy­cling of waste for more juice.

Of the minus­es: like most auger juicers, the waste out­let is clogged, which caus­es dis­com­fort when clean­ing the device.

The ENDEVER ver­ti­cal auger juicer is equipped with a 1000 ml glass direct juice sup­ply sys­tem, which is includ­ed in the kit. In addi­tion, there is a “drop-stop” sys­tem from acci­den­tal spilling of the drink on the work sur­face. The col­lec­tion of the pulp takes place auto­mat­i­cal­ly dur­ing the press­ing process, where the processed cake enters the des­ig­nat­ed 800 ml tank.

A fair­ly pow­er­ful machine (350 W) with a stain­less steel fil­ter and a spin speed of 60 rpm. The pack­age also includes a load­ing tray and a clean­ing brush, and a reverse func­tion is pro­vid­ed for a thor­ough wring­ing. The body of the mod­el is made of stain­less steel, the bot­tom is rein­forced with rub­ber­ized legs.

Of the advan­tages: a built-in fil­ter for juice and a round wide neck (75 mm) that can accom­mo­date whole fruits. Also, con­sumers who have had time to eval­u­ate the kitchen assis­tant indi­cate that the juicer has excel­lent per­for­mance, no vibra­tion and unnec­es­sary unpleas­ant nois­es in oper­a­tion, and pro­tec­tion against turn­ing on when the device is not assem­bled cor­rect­ly.

The dis­ad­van­tages include the fact that the inter­nal parts of the device are plas­tic (only the screw, the met­al rod) — this can increase the chances of break­age in case of improp­er oper­a­tion, and the device heats up dur­ing long work.

The Red­mond RJ-912S Juicer is a 580 W auger mod­el designed to get fresh juice from hard veg­eta­bles, fibrous greens and soft fruits. Fea­ture of this mod­el in mul­ti­func­tion­al char­ac­ter, name­ly grind­ing of ingre­di­ents for the sub­se­quent prepa­ra­tion.

The touch con­trol pan­el is designed to instant­ly switch between the oper­at­ing modes: Hard, Medi­um, Soft, Mix, Veg­eta­bles, Smooth­ies, Grater/Slicer, Pome­gran­ate and Clean­ing. The avail­able pro­grams dif­fer main­ly in terms of pow­er (from 200 to 580 W). There is also a reverse func­tion to extract unprocessed pieces and squeeze out the left­overs as much as pos­si­ble. If over­heat­ing occurs, the device auto­mat­i­cal­ly shuts down.

The diam­e­ter of the load­ing open­ing is 75 mm, so the fruit can be put whole with­out cut­ting. The juice col­lec­tion tank (1000 ml) is equipped with a grad­u­at­ed scale, but if nec­es­sary, the drink can be poured into its con­tain­er no more than 17.5 cm high. Due to the anti-drip sys­tem, your kitchen will always be clean.

The con­tain­er for col­lect­ing the cake is a plas­tic cup with a vol­ume of 700 ml. The con­tain­er is remov­able so it can be eas­i­ly emp­tied as it fills up. Accord­ing to reviews, this mod­el has an ide­al spin — the pulp at the exit is com­plete­ly dry, all the juice remains in the con­tain­er.

There is a mesh for addi­tion­al fil­ter­ing of juice from pulp, but the self-clean­ing func­tion leaves much to be desired — the device is washed with water, but for more thor­ough clean­ing, user inter­ven­tion is required. Accord­ing to cus­tomer reviews, the mod­el has large dimen­sions, which can cause dis­com­fort when work­ing in a small kitchen or in anoth­er room.

How to choose an auger juicer

To pur­chase a suit­able device, you need to famil­iar­ize your­self with the nuances of how to choose an auger juicer for your home. There are sev­er­al para­me­ters to con­sid­er when buy­ing.


The opti­mal pow­er range for each prod­uct must be dif­fer­ent so that the prod­uct does not turn into a puree, but into a rich juice. For exam­ple, for veg­eta­bles, a pow­er of 350–600 W is suit­able, and for fruits and berries — 200–500 W. If the mod­el has the abil­i­ty to adjust the speed, the device can be more pow­er­ful.

Number of screws

In most cas­es, one auger will be enough for users, besides, most of the juicers on the mar­ket are sin­gle augers. If the main goal is to squeeze juice from hard and fibrous veg­eta­bles and fruits, it is bet­ter to look at mod­els with two augers.

Additional functions

“Drop-stop”, auto­mat­ic ejec­tion of cake, reverse — today almost every auger juicer has these func­tions. It is bet­ter to pay atten­tion to mod­els with the fol­low­ing func­tions: pro­tec­tion against acci­den­tal inclu­sion / over­load, the pos­si­bil­i­ty and avail­abil­i­ty of noz­zles for mak­ing puree, ice cream and smooth­ies.


Per­haps not the most sig­nif­i­cant, but not the last cri­te­ri­on for choos­ing a kitchen assis­tant. Euro­pean com­pa­nies have weight on the mar­ket, which you should pay atten­tion to when choos­ing a device. Accord­ing­ly, do not for­get about the price-qual­i­ty ratio. If the goal is to pur­chase a device of a sim­i­lar lev­el in qual­i­ty, but at a more attrac­tive price, you should take a clos­er look at domes­tic rep­re­sen­ta­tives of such devices.

Expert review of auger juicers

They share their per­son­al expe­ri­ence on the use and selec­tion of auger juicers Dmit­ry Kise­levProd­uct Man­ag­er at Avax, and Anton Ryazant­sevHead of the Inter­net project of the CVT Group of Com­pa­nies:

Dmit­ry Kise­lev:

“Auger juicers have a lot of advan­tages:

  • Live Juice — All min­er­als and enzymes are retained, just as much as in the raw ingre­di­ents. For exam­ple, juice from an auger juicer has 42% more vit­a­min C, 62% more vit­a­min A, and 3 times more cal­ci­um than juice from a cen­trifu­gal machine. That is, you get not just a deli­cious drink, but also a real vit­a­min bomb;
  • Juices keep longer because they don’t oxi­dize. You can imme­di­ate­ly squeeze a large amount of juice and store it in the refrig­er­a­tor in a ster­ile con­tain­er, take it with you to work, study or the gym;
  • Tex­ture — the juice is homo­ge­neous and dense, with­out sed­i­ment, the taste is brighter, there is a min­i­mum of foam on the sur­face;
  • Effi­cien­cy — it’s sad when you have to throw out a huge amount of still juicy pulp, right? But screw juicers will not make you sad, because the cake turns out to be almost dry — only fibers are sent to the trash, and all the ben­e­fits and juice remain in the glass;
  • Noise­less­ness — auger juicer is suit­able for those juice lovers who wake up ear­ly and are afraid to wake up loved ones (noise less than 40 dB);

In addi­tion, auger juicers allow you to pre­pare not only juice, but also make veg­etable milk from sprout­ed wheat and nuts (nut paste, which is obtained when prepar­ing milk, can also be used and used in the form of a spread) and sor­bet from frozen fruits.

In addi­tion to juices, you can make veg­etable cut­lets from cake, for exam­ple, from car­rots, beets or pump­kins, and also use it as a spread (in the com­mon peo­ple, “spread” on a sand­wich).

Anton Ryazant­sev:

“My friends gave me a screw juicer. With her, I felt the dif­fer­ence between just eat­ing an apple or drink­ing a glass of nat­ur­al apple juice. Enjoyed the full­ness of the taste of the juice. How­ev­er, such a device requires a clear under­stand­ing of its capa­bil­i­ties and desires, in my case, this is not quite a hit in needs. For mak­ing fresh­ly squeezed juice once a month, an auger juicer will obvi­ous­ly not sim­pli­fy the process: it will rather load the aver­age juice lover. If peo­ple are real­ly focused on drink­ing fresh juices, fol­low a spe­cial diet and make volu­mi­nous prepa­ra­tions, then such a device will be just right.

An auger juicer is worth tak­ing if there is a need to squeeze juice from var­i­ous prod­ucts: veg­eta­bles, grapes with stones, or even nuts. To extract juice from herbs and nuts, you will need a more expen­sive juicer with a very small strain­er in the set. Most like­ly, it will be a hor­i­zon­tal load­ing machine with a low num­ber of rev­o­lu­tions, since it is more dif­fi­cult to extract juice from strong and non-watery prod­ucts. If cel­ery juice or almond milk is not in your diet, then you can choose a sim­pler and cheap­er mod­el.

Prices for auger juicers in Russia

About the state of the screw juicer mar­ket and key play­ers tells Dmit­ry Kise­levprod­uct man­ag­er of Avax com­pa­ny:

“If we talk about the state of the mar­ket for auger juicers, then since the end of 2021 a trend has emerged on it — units have appeared at afford­able prices. Pre­vi­ous­ly, this cat­e­go­ry was lim­it­ed main­ly to a few brands with a price tag of 50 thou­sand rubles or more.

Bud­get seg­ment The total price range starts from 2 to 20 thou­sand rubles. There may be com­plaints about the build qual­i­ty and per­for­mance due to sav­ings on com­po­nents;
Mid-price seg­ment The spread in price is from 3 to 25 thou­sand rubles. The main play­ers (they have the largest num­ber of mod­els in dif­fer­ent price seg­ments) of the mar­ket are sev­er­al brands: Scar­lett, Kit­fort, Red­mond;
Pre­mi­um seg­ment In this seg­ment, the cost of juicers starts from 25 thou­sand rubles, and the aver­age cost in the mar­ket is 50,000 rubles. The key play­ers are: Ken­wood, Bork and OBERHOF.

In our opin­ion, you need to choose a juicer from the mid­dle price seg­ment. As a rule, they are on the same lev­el in qual­i­ty as expen­sive mod­els, but you don’t have to over­pay for a pro­mot­ed brand. First of all, you need to look at the tech­ni­cal char­ac­ter­is­tics and com­pare them.

Popular questions and answers

Experts Dmit­ry Kise­lev and Anton Ryazant­sev tell what to look for when choos­ing a screw juicer in order to save on pur­chase and cor­rect­ly cal­cu­late the pow­er of the device.

What types of juicers are there?

Dmit­ry Kise­lev:

“There are three types of juicers:

• Cen­trifu­gal;
•For cit­rus fruits.

Cen­trifu­gal juicers allow you to get juice from fruits and berries, cit­rus juicers are designed, sur­pris­ing­ly, for cit­rus fruits, and auger juicers are uni­ver­sal and make juice from a wide vari­ety of prod­ucts, up to coarse greens — it all depends on the pow­er and design fea­tures of a par­tic­u­lar mod­el. .

How can you save money on buying an auger juicer?

Dmit­ry Kise­lev:

“Sav­ing on the pur­chase of a juicer is not worth it. It is bet­ter to approach the choice of the device wise­ly and think about how the device will help save mon­ey in the future. For exam­ple, on elec­tric­i­ty, you should choose mod­els that have low­er pow­er con­sump­tion, but the qual­i­ty of work does not suf­fer. This is pos­si­ble in mod­els where the man­u­fac­tur­er has thought through this moment: for exam­ple, it has pro­vid­ed high effi­cien­cy at low ener­gy costs due to the design of the engine.

You can also save on the mul­ti­func­tion­al­i­ty of the device: there are mod­els of juicers for which var­i­ous noz­zles are pro­vid­ed, for exam­ple, a meat grinder and a veg­etable cut­ter. You also need to pay atten­tion to the fact that these acces­sories turn the device into a full-fledged meat grinder and veg­etable cut­ter, because some man­u­fac­tur­ers save on addi­tion­al equip­ment, because of which the qual­i­ty suf­fers.”

Anton Ryazant­sev:

“Fresh­ly squeezed juice is a prod­uct with­out heat treat­ment, and its prepa­ra­tion requires max­i­mum safe­ty for the con­sumer. The low price of a juicer most like­ly indi­cates the low qual­i­ty of the mate­ri­als from which it is made. At worst, the mon­ey sav­ings are more than off­set by the plas­tic after­taste.

Some man­u­fac­tur­ers make screw shafts and strain­ers from Ultem. This super plas­tic is one of the safest in the food indus­try. But so far, such devices are rare and cost an order of mag­ni­tude more expen­sive than juicers made of stain­less steel or plas­tic of a low­er order.

There­fore, I do not rec­om­mend sav­ing on the qual­i­ty of mate­ri­als and com­po­nents. A good way to save mon­ey is to mon­i­tor prices and wait for pro­mo­tions and dis­counts from man­u­fac­tur­ers or online stores.”

What is the difference between a vertical auger juicer and a horizontal one?

Dmit­ry Kise­lev:

“There are two types of auger juicers:

• Ver­ti­cal;
• Hor­i­zon­tal.

Ver­ti­cal mod­els are more bulky, their auger is short­er, and there­fore the effi­cien­cy is low­er — they squeeze less juice. In ver­ti­cal cham­bers, the juice extrac­tion cham­ber is larg­er than in hor­i­zon­tal ones — the juice comes into con­tact with air more and oxi­dizes, there­fore, many use­ful sub­stances are lost. Ver­ti­cal juicers have a larg­er feed open­ing, but not so much that the food does not have to be cut, but safe­ty suf­fers — you can injure your fin­gers when push­ing a fruit or veg­etable to the auger. Hor­i­zon­tal ones usu­al­ly don’t have this prob­lem, because the feed open­ing is small­er and the mouth is high­er.”

What is the working principle of screw juicers?

Dmit­ry Kise­lev:

“The auger juicer works on the prin­ci­ple of an elec­tric meat grinder: the prod­ucts enter the auger through the feed open­ing, which crush­es them, then the ground veg­eta­bles and fruits are fil­tered through a spe­cial mesh under the pres­sure of the auger. The fil­tered juice enters the juice tank, and the pulp goes into the pulp tank.

This tech­nol­o­gy of squeez­ing juice is also called “cold squeez­ing”, because fruits, berries and veg­eta­bles do not heat up dur­ing such pro­cess­ing, so the juice does not oxi­dize and much more use­ful sub­stances are retained in it.”

Can an auger juicer grind nuts?

Dmit­ry Kise­lev:

“You can grind nuts in a screw juicer. The main thing is not to choose too hard nuts. But in gen­er­al, it all depends on the strength of a par­tic­u­lar mod­el of juicer. Nuts are not for every one of them.”

Anton Ryazant­sev:

“Yes, and nuts, and grapes with stones. Top-load­ing juicers do this bet­ter, but soft fruit and veg­eta­bles are often made into very thick juices or purées.”

How to correctly calculate the required power of a screw juicer?

Anton Ryazant­sev:

“Auger juicer is suit­able for dai­ly use and for mak­ing juice for future use. But in each of the process­es there are impor­tant nuances. Juices and purees squeezed with the help of an auger are well suit­ed for can­ning, because they do not under­go accel­er­at­ed oxi­da­tion dur­ing the process. The auger runs slow­er (aver­age 50–65 rpm) than cen­trifu­gal mod­els (10,000 rpm): har­vest­ing large vol­umes will take a long time. But such an extrac­tion gives the best result: at low speeds, the juice is squeezed out much more strong­ly, and the qual­i­ty of the drink itself is high­er.
Cen­trifu­gal juicers are more pow­er­ful than screw juicers: the for­mer can accel­er­ate the engine to 1000 watts, while the lat­ter usu­al­ly have a pow­er lim­it of no more than 150 watts.

Also, screw devices are much qui­eter than cen­trifu­gal ones (40 dB ver­sus 80 dB). With an increase in pow­er, there is a loss of flu­id and an increase in sound: this is affect­ed by the num­ber of rev­o­lu­tions per minute — the more they are, the loud­er the process and less liq­uid has time to wring out. Pow­er and speed indi­ca­tors direct­ly affect the price of the goods.

The power of the juicer has decreased: what is the reason?

Dmit­ry Kise­lev:

“This is a rather rare sit­u­a­tion, usu­al­ly juicers work out the entire peri­od set by the man­u­fac­tur­er. Rea­sons for per­for­mance degra­da­tion can be as fol­lows:

• Worn motor brush­es. Solu­tion: replace­ment of motor brush­es;

• Bear­ing grease has run out. Solu­tion: Lubri­cate the bear­ing.

Anton Ryazant­sev:

“The main rea­son is the wear of parts:

• “Flew” bear­ing, which is con­nect­ed to the screw shaft;

• The motor has over­heat­ed due to pro­longed load on it.

If the juicer was not used often, but the motor pow­er has decreased, most like­ly the cause of the mal­func­tion is the wrong choice of the device: they bought it for mak­ing juice from fruits, and began to squeeze juice from herbs. The load on the engine has increased, but he is not dis­posed to this.

When should I buy a multi-speed auger juicer?

Anton Ryazant­sev:

“If you want to cre­ate puree-like dish­es, includ­ing juices of dif­fer­ent con­sis­ten­cy. The slow­er the auger rotates, the more the pulp is pressed and squeezed out: the out­put is almost dry cake. At a high­er speed, you can simul­ta­ne­ous­ly get blanks for dif­fer­ent dish­es: when work­ing with toma­toes, juice flows out of one spout, wet cake is sep­a­rat­ed from the oth­er, which is per­fect, for exam­ple, for adji­ka.

What are the advantages and disadvantages of auger juicers?

Anton Ryazant­sev:

“The advan­tages of auger juicers are as fol­lows:

1. The juice is obtained with­out oxi­da­tion and more nat­ur­al, because dur­ing the extrac­tion it does not heat up and does not enter into an oxy­gen reac­tion, as in a cen­trifu­gal juicer;

2. One device can process prod­ucts of dif­fer­ent con­sis­ten­cy: from soft fruits to nuts;

3. Low noise lev­el dur­ing oper­a­tion (35–40 dB);

4. Vari­ety of func­tions:

• A closed damper allows you to mix juices, squeez­ing each prod­uct sep­a­rate­ly (for exam­ple, a con­tain­er with already squeezed juice from car­rots will be blocked while you are work­ing with apples);

• The func­tion “Drop-stop” stops the liq­uid as soon as the con­tain­er for col­lect­ing juice is tak­en out;

• Pro­tec­tion against turn­ing on the device with bro­ken assem­bly;

• Over­heat­ing pro­tec­tion will turn off the juicer if the oper­at­ing lim­it is reached;

• The reverse will auto­mat­i­cal­ly start the shaft in the oppo­site direc­tion if some­thing extra has got inside or too much food has been loaded.

Dis­ad­van­tages of screw juicers:

1. Lim­it­ed time of one-time work. The oper­at­ing range is on aver­age 7–30 min­utes, then the juicer motor needs to cool down (unlike cen­trifu­gal ones, which oper­ate with­out load on the motor);

2. Low pro­cess­ing speed of prod­ucts at the rate of the best extrac­tion (the slow­er the screw rotates, the bet­ter the juice is squeezed out);

3. Man­u­al wash­ing of parts (not all juicers can be washed in a dish­wash­er, and for some devices such wash­ing is allowed only for cer­tain parts);

4. Wash­ing the built-in cake col­lec­tor, if it is full (if the con­tain­er is full dur­ing oper­a­tion, every­thing will have to be dis­as­sem­bled, cleaned and reloaded to con­tin­ue spin­ning);

5. Stor­age space (hor­i­zon­tal juicers take up a lot of space on the table, and ver­ti­cal ones are incon­ve­nient to use if cab­i­nets hang over the kitchen work­top).

How to clean the auger juicer after work?

Dmit­ry Kise­lev:

“Before clean­ing, be sure to read the instruc­tions for work­ing with a spe­cif­ic mod­el, as much depends on the mate­ri­als from which the device is made.

Do not use harsh abra­sive clean­ers and sponges, as well as wash the parts of the juicer under hot water (more than 60 degrees). Not all parts of the machine can be loaded into the dish­wash­er. I note that you can not wash the body of the juicer under run­ning water, if nec­es­sary, just wipe it with a damp cloth.

Anton Ryazant­sev:

“Most auger juicers need to be washed by hand, tak­ing apart every detail. There are mod­els that can be ful­ly or par­tial­ly loaded into the dish­wash­er. In expen­sive mod­els, there is an auto­mat­ic wash­ing func­tion: after squeez­ing the juice, water is poured into the fun­nel, and the equip­ment itself wash­es all its parts.

Which type of juice supply is better: through the spout or into the built-in container?

Anton Ryazant­sev:

“The devices are cheap­er with a spout, but the wring­ing process must be con­trolled so that the liq­uid does not flow over the edge of a free-stand­ing con­tain­er. Juicers with a built-in capac­i­ty do not require such con­trol, but when chang­ing the prod­uct, you will first have to dis­as­sem­ble every­thing, wash it, and only then con­tin­ue work­ing. And under the spout, it is enough to sub­sti­tute anoth­er con­tain­er and con­tin­ue the squeeze.

Time and effort will help save the type of down­load. In a ver­ti­cal load­ing juicer, prod­ucts do not need to be pushed into the auger — they move for­ward due to grav­i­ty and their own weight, and hor­i­zon­tal devices require man­u­al pro­mo­tion of prod­ucts. For addi­tion­al time sav­ings, choose mod­els with a 75–85 mm feed neck. So the prod­ucts do not have to be cut into small­er pieces.
