Find out the Pros & Cons of the Most Popular Juice Extractors
Our reviews are independent of any manufacturer or dealer, helping you gather unbiased information to make a well-founded buying decision.
There is a confusingly wide array of juicers offered by retailers and without some information about certain brands and the various models,
How to Use Reviews & Ratings on JoyfulJuicer.com
As you can see the Top Juicer Brands menu on the top leads you to main pages of the most popular makes (Omega, Breville, Champion, Jack LaLanne, Juiceman, Waring Pro, Acme, Samson, Green Star etc.) containing a detailed overview of each brand and its juicer models including the major features and benefits, price range, main strengths/weaknesses and opinions of users. You can also find information and reviews based on method of juicing (centrifugal, masticating, single auger, twin-gear, and hydraulic press).
From where we gather all this information you may ask?
Since we are dedicated juicers for a couple of years now we have bought and tried several models about which we have first-hand information, but we certainly don’t plan to buy all makes and models available on the market.
For juicers about which we don’t have first-hand information we compile data from the manufacturer, ask the opinion of actual users (friends, family, colleagues) and we also read reviews published on other sites to extract the most important parts (pros and cons, major benefits/weaknesses) to present them in an easily understandable, structured form.
We do all the work to save you time and make your search for the best juicer less tedious.
Browsing and reading reviews published on our site help you learn a lot about the major brands, models, identify which are the most reliable manufacturers, and which unit fits your budget and lifestyle the best.Most likely if a certain model has some problems consumers will talk about it. On our pages you’ll find all the major pros and cons reported by users.
Don’t forget that even the best appliances have their own weaknesses that the manufacturer or retailer won’t advertise in the product description.
Our Review & Rating System – Why Use our Reviews to Select the Best Juicer for your Needs?
They tend to write glossed over reviews because it isn’t in their interest to tell you the weaknesses of an appliance they want you to buy. Even worse is when online retailers only copy and paste the information provided by the manufacturer and you’ll find the same, oftentimes hyped juicer description all over the internet.
There are of course the large review sites like Amazon or Consumersearch.com that offer many reviews provided by users (popular models often have a couple of hundreds reviews).
To read all or most of them would take much of your time. User reviews published on large retail sites usually don’t have an easy-to-follow structure and you have to read thoroughly to find the most important facts and information to be able to compare different models.
To do this with hundred of reviews on one juicer model is very tedious and time-consuming. We know because we’ve been through it when we bought our first juicer and and looked for one for my mom.
Since we became dedicated juicers we thought that a website that provides objective reviews in an easy-to-understand format would be a great help for others who are thinking about getting a juicer.
That’s how our site, Joyfuljuicer.com was born. We don’t sell directly any of the juicers reviewed on our site nor are we directly affiliated with any manufacturer/retailer so we aren’t biased toward any brand or product. We do provide links to product pages on Amazon.com, and Shopzilla.com so that you can check actual prices, compare and buy a unit you like without having to do another search on the web. As a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program and Shopzilla Publisher Program we do receive a small fee if you buy a product through links leading to these two sites, but this doesn’t make us biased toward a certain brand or product. See full disclaimer here.
In What We Offer More than Amazon/Consumersearch.com?
We review solely juicers unlike big review sites that feature reviews on all sorts of products. In order to easily digest the reviews and to be able to quickly compare the most important features and benefits of various juicer models we created a simple review & rating structure for all reviews published on our site.
