These units can liquefy a variety of fruits and vegetables, as well as leafy greens. Top brands with high ratings include the Breville Juicers and Champion range.

According to online reviews, the best juice is extracted when all of the peeled fruit is used, including the pith. This quality juice has more health benefits because of the nutrients contained in the white skin.
