While most people are familiar with the centrifugal blade juicer, the slower pressure based juicer appliance is just now gaining momentum, and aims to get more juice out of that fruit than the slice and dice ways of the other type.
Sunbeam’s pressure juicer manages to accomplish this at a decent price premium, especially against the king of the hill model we tested from rival Oscar, which comes in at $200 more and occupies more bench space.
The differences between these models are noticeable, mind you, and while the Oscar is more expensive, it does a better job of crunching every last drop of juice out, while also affording you the ability to make noodles and breadsticks.
That said, if you’re buying a juicer to juice, we’re actually recommending the Sunbeam over the Oscar.
Technically, the Oscar does a better job, but its setup is more fiddly, with more bits and pieces and less room to work with in your kitchen.
The Sunbeam, though, is faster per batch of fruit, smaller, and easier to clean up, and those features, as well as the less expensive entry price, make it worth checking out.
