Editor's Notes

July 21, 2020:

Fruit presses are generally favored over centrifugal juicers as it's thought they allow the juice to retain more nutritional value than when the fruit is chopped and whirled around a machine. So, we've selected a range of appliances that use pressure to extract all the liquid from healthy fruits and rated them based on their efficiency, ease of use, and durability.

Starting with the most compact, the Charminer Extractor Tool and the Zulay Kitchen 2-in-1 are both handheld Mexican elbow style options that store away neatly when not in use. Their small size makes them convenient to use over a pan or a plate when cooking, but they are also good reasonably priced options for making lemonade or orange juice.

If you're interested in making your own wine or are a budding cider hobbyist, the EJWox Basket is an ideal selection since it comes in three sizes and is capable of pressing a wide range of fruits. From the same manufacturer, the versatile EJWox Wine Press not only generates perfectly smooth drinks, but it can also press herbs for tinctures, make cheese, and is the only item on the list that works well with nuts. However, both the aforementioned and the Squeeze Master Basket require more preparation time than other selections as the fruit needs to be chopped or grated before being loaded into the press.

The Rovsun Juicer is a great value choice, especially considering its power and efficiency. The safety clip is a thoughtful feature, as users of similar styles reported the handle falling down and bumping them on the head.

Our top pick, the Tabletop Fruit Press, really impressed us with the manufacturer's attention to detail. The plastic sleeve that fits over the outside prevents any liquids from escaping, meaning you get the most out of your fruit, and it doesn't make a mess in your kitchen. The plate presses right to the base of the cylinder, which is great for those occasions when you only want to press a small amount of fruit.

While this list contains only manual presses, electric masticating juicers can provide equally nutritious options without the need for physical strength.

Special Honors

Maximizer Cider Press This model is a good investment for the seasoned cider maker, whether you have a few apple trees or a full-blown orchard. It sports a robust cast iron pressing plate alongside your choice of a solid oak or a stainless steel basket. There's also an optional mounting fixture that a grinder can attach to.
