The celery is a fleshy vegetable with 95% moisture content. Not surprising that all major types of juicers such as a single auger, twin gear, centrifugal, and a manual can handle it and produce the high celery juice yield.
Yet, it is not the easiest vegetable (grass) to juice. The long and strong fiber strings along the celery stalk may cause jamming with some types of juicers.
In this article, we will investigate which juice extractor is most suitable for juicing celery. Despite the fact that all types of juicers are able to extract celery juice, the quality of extracted juice will differ not only across the different juicer types but also within the same type.
Here we outlined the parameters which are important when deciding on selecting the best machine for juicing celery:
- Celery juice yield;
- Ease to feed;
- Prone to jamming;
- Ease to clean;
- Juicer price.
In this article, we will not list the machine illustrate how the different types of juicers perform when processing celery and advice on the supposedly best juice extractor for this task within each juice extractor type, so you will decide yourself what suits you best.

#1 Horizontal Single Auger Cold Press Slow Masticating Juicer
Horizontal single auger juicers are the ones that have a rod-shaped auger that rotates with slow 80 RPMs speed in horizontal directions chewing the ingredients against the stainless steel or plastic perforated screen and cold pressing the juice via it. So, any horizontal single auger juicer technically is a slow and cold press juicer and thus outputs the high-quality low oxidation juice.
It has a vertical narrow ingredients feeding chute and it appears to be very efficient, fast, and easy to feed the celery stalks. Remarkably, it does not jam celery long fiber even if you feed the whole stalk without cutting it into smaller pieces. They are quite fast to feed and process the celery and usually able to juice about 2 pounds of celery take in under 3 minutes.
The single auger juicers usually show not the best celery juice yield. However, the Omega MM900HDS Celery Juicer with the special end cap that designed for the better celery yield outputs one of the highest yields for the celery among all types of juicers.
Omega MM900HDS Low-Speed Masticating Celery Juicer
Omega MM900HDS Masticating Celey Juicer is the single auger horizontal slow masticating juicer. It is recommended as the best juicer for processing celery juice by the Medical Medium Anthony William who is the initiator of the worldwide celery juice movement. He even licensed his name for this model, so the MM abbreviation at MM900 stands for the Medical Medium.
Although, MM900HDS comes with the Omega 6007/6008 (5th generation single auger juicers) housing body design but belongs to the 6th generation single auger juicers with upgrades and new features for the best yield when juicing celery.
- Motor Housing;
- Drum with Chute;
- Removable Hopper;
- Outlet cap with 2 adjusting knob (celery knob and juicing nob);
- Juicing Screen/cone;
- 32 oz. Juice and Pulp Container;
- Accessories (pusher, cleaning brush).
Chute and Produce Feeding: The Omega MM900HDS Masticating Celey Juicer is equipped with a removable round 1.5” in diameter chute (identical to 8007/8008 models. Although, it is quite narrow and latest Omega juicers come with the wider chute (NC 800/900/1000 models) but it still allows to feed complete celery stalk into it without pre-cutting.
Motor unit: Omega MM900HDS comes with 200 Watts motor that runs with 80 RPMs speed. The motor housing has the design identical to the Omega 8007/8008 Juicer.
The gadget equipped with a thermal cut-off system to protect the motor from overheating and under the motor base it has a reset switch to reset the juicer if it is overheated. Generally, the juicer is should not overheat as it is designed to operate up to 30 min without stopping.
Gears/Auger: The Juicer auger also has specially designed features. It has a slightly longer size and a modified edge at the auger narrow end.
The same as 5th and 6th generation models its auger is made of heavy-duty GE Ultem material, which is 8x stronger than other juicers augers. GE Ultem resin is a very safe material and used in medical and chemical equipment due to its resistance properties to solvents, heat, and flame.
The MM900HDS auger process celery very well without any jamming and clogging.
Juicing Screen: The Omega MM900HDS Masticating Celey Juicer is equipped with 2 stages juicing screen that features the stainless still meshes at the beginning of auger and near the cap of the juicer what allows to extract juice in two zones of produce processing and thus provides the larger juicing screen area.
The juicing screen near the outlet cap comes with silicone flap that keeps pulp in a juicer for longer and thus able to squeeze more juice.
End Cap and Adjustment Knobs: The juicer comes with two pressure adjustment knobs – 1) the standard juicing knob with 3 pressure setting and 2) the dedicated celery juicing knobs with 3 pressure setting that is specifically designed to maximize celery juice output and extraction. The celery knob has narrower than any other knobs outlet and has green silicon inset retain the pulp for longer for maximum juice squeezing.
Containers: The Omega MM900HDS Masticating Celey Juicer is equipped with basic 32 oz. plastic juice and pulp containers.
Functionality: Although, the gadget is marketed as the celery juicer it is very well processing other juices also, so it suites for juicing:
- Celery juice;
- Leafy greens and pine tree needles;
- Wheatgrass, barley grass, and other grasses;
- Hard Fruit.
However, it is not good for stringy fruits like pineapple and other soft fruits and berries.
The celery adjustable pressure knobs will also work for the leafy greens, sprouts, and grasses, you just have to select proper setting for each produce.
The Juicing knob will work for citrus fruits and veggies, the tighter setting will suit hard produce while loosening the setting for soft ingredients. For some of the soft ingredients, it is even better to completely remove the adjustable knob.
Cleaning and assembling/disassembling, operating: It is probably the easiest juicer to assemble/disassemble and clean. You just have to connect hopper to the chute, attach the chute/drum part with the locking collar to the juicer motor housing, fit the auger and the juicing screen to the housing, connect the outlet cap and adjusting knob and it is ready to use. To dissemble is the same in opposite orders.
Operating is easy, it has only one switch that has ON/OFF/REVERSE positions.
The cleaning is also a breeze, the juicing screen, however, will require some efforts to clean with provided with the set special brush. All disassembling and cleaning procedures will take no longer than 2 minutes for experienced users.
Warranty: The gadget is equipped with the industry-leading 15-year warranty for USA / Canada covering parts and performance. However, a 1-year commercial and international warranty.
Dimensions: 6.5” W × 14.5” D × 15.5” H (165mm W × 368mm D × 394mm H), weight 13.0 lb/ 5kg.
Average juice yield from 1 kg of celery: 700ml – 730 ml
Summary: The Omega MM900HDS Masticating Celey Juicer yields 10-15% more celery juice than other Omega single auger extractors and approximately the same as twin gear masticating juicers. The high yield is achieved due to special celery juicing design features. The juicer also outputs high yield for other leafy greens and wheatgrass.
However, this juicer does not include any extra attachments such as blank screen/cone and bland end cap or nozzles used for making nut milk, nut butter, frozen desserts, salsa baby food, grinding, pasta extrusion, and other food processing tasks (like similar Omega juicers).
Nevertheless, this machine is still one of the easiest in the type to clean and assemble/disassemble. And if you plan to juice a lot of celery and other leafy greens celery and want the juicer that is very easy to clean and use than Omega MM900HDS will be the best. It addition it does not clog and feed the entire stalk into juicer chute without cutting. Keep also in mind that the high juice yield saves money on your grocery bill.

#2 Twin Gear Masticating Slow Cold Press Juicers
The Twin Gear which also known as Triturating Juicers employs the two horizontal counter-rotating jumbo gears with slow 110 rpm speed that chew produce down to the small fragments and cold press those fragments alongside stainless steel holed juicing screen. Thus, the Twin Gear Juicers are also technically slow (110 rpm) cold press Juicers which are known to deliver the highest juices yield and the best juicer quality with the longest shelf life among all juicers types for the majority of production.
The downside of Twin gear juicers is the price, they are the most expensive across all juicer types. However, we selected the Tribest GSE Greenstar Elite Twin Gear Juicer which is priced reasonably and known as one of the best in industry. The Greenstar Elite also does not clog celery and fed with entire celery stalk easily.
Tribest Greenstar Elite Cold Press Masticating Juicer (GSE-5000/5010/5050)
The Greenstar Elite is a Twin Gear Masticating/Low Speed/Cold Press Juicer. It is available in 3 models that differ by the color only – white (GSE5000B), black (GSE5010B), and chrome (GSE505B) – and have absolutely identical technical parameters and selection of accessories in the package.

- Most expensive.
#3 Vertical Cold Press Slow Masticating Juicer
Vertical Cold Press Slow masticating juicers have a very similar design to horizontal single auger juicer but they have a much fatter auger size which located and rotated in the vertical direction instead of the horizontal direction. The latest generations of vertical slow auger juicers come with speed 43 RPMs and are known to be slowest among all the masticating juicer machine.
Although, the vertical single auger juicers are known to be very efficient with a wide range of products but they are not ideal for juicing celery. The celery long fiber strings tend to clog the vertical single auger machines, so celery needs to be cut into smaller parts (0.5-1 inches) before they fed into the vertical slow cold press masticating juicers feed chute.
We selected the Omega VRT843 vertical juicer, which is very efficient for juicing a variety of ingredients and delivers really high yield and quality celery juice.
Omega VSJ843QS Vertical Slow Masticating Juicer
Omega VSJ 843 is a single auger vertical masticating juicer with the common name (rather marketing term) slow juicer. It was released in 2014 however and improved in 2018 with a new motor. The Juicer is available in 5 models – VSJ843QS (square shape in silver color), VSJ843QR (square shape in red color), VSJ843QW (square shape in white color), VSJ843RS (round shape in silver color) and VSJ843RR (round shape in red color). All models have absolutely similar all technical parameters but differ by colors and shape.

- Upgraded spinning brush
- Juicing Bowl with attached extraction plug and upgraded pulp outlet
- GE Twin Wing Ultem Auger
- Self-cleaning screen holder
- Two 32 ounce juicing cups
- Pulp Container
- Accessories: Pusher, Cleaning Brush
Chute and Produce Feeding:
The Omega VSJ 843 Juicer features oval shape feed chute with size 2.5” X 1.5”. Although entire celery stalk will fit into the Juicer chute, this type of juicer tends to clog stringy ingredients and leafy greens, so they must be pre-cut before juicing with this machine. The celery must be cut into 0.5-1 inches pieces before feeding into the Omega VSJ 843.
The hard ingredients like carrot do not need pre-cutting, however, apple will not feed into the chute and must be cut before feeding.
Motor unit: It comes with a strong 150 watts motor (equivalent to 2 HP) and operates with a very slow 43 RPMs speed that allows minimal oxidation and produces high nutritional value juice.
Starting from 2018 Omega VSJ 843 comes with improved motors that produce a better torque, so it is able to process for efficiently hard ingredients like carrots. Single-Phase induction type motor.
Gears/Auger: The VSJ843 comes with a new patented twin-wing auger design that is made of very hard GE’s ULTEM material. The unique twin-wing auger cuts up and grinds produce more efficiently than the standard augers. It also handles the grinding job much better and able to make superior nut milk recipes.
Juicing Screen: It has a dual-stage patented innovative juicing screen. It is not only made of good quality fine mesh stainless steel but also introduces for the first time the Automatic Wiping System (AWS) for the screen. To be precise, it adds to the screen a silicone wiping blade to clean and wipe the screen during processing from an excess of pulp, so it ensures that pulp is processed to the finer consistency that results in higher juice yield, the juice with the low pulp consistency in the juice and much easier screen cleaning experience.
The dual-stage screen allows the juice to be extracted via the first crushing stage and in the area just before the pulp ejection, which results in more juice, and drier pulp.
Juicer Tap: It also has the innovative and patented no-drip Juice Tap that holds the juice in the juicing camber until you release it that makes sure the drink is mixed well with pulp before it goes into juicing cup, which provides more nutritional juice.
The no-drip juice tap also allows the faster Juicer clean up, you just fill the machine with water and run it for a short period of time.
Containers: It comes with 32 oz. plastic juicing cup and pulp container.
- Celery juice;
- Leafy greens;
- Hard veggie like carrot, beet and other roots;
- Oranges and other citrus fruits;
- Firm fruits like apple and pears;
- Soft fruits and veggies like pineapples, melons, grapes, tomatoes, and cucumbers;
- Makes nut milk;
- Soybean milk;
- Frozen sorbets without a separate “blank” attachment;
Although the juicer handles a wide range of the produce, most of them must be cut before feeding into the relatively narrow chute (beets, apples). Also, grass and veggies with sinuous fibers like celery and ginger need to be cut into smaller pieces, otherwise, the long fibers will entangle the auger and clog.
Cleaning and assembling/disassembling: The Omega VSJ843 juicer is easy to assemble, it simply requires set vertically down all parts into place. Disassembling just require to repeat the procedure in the opposite order.
Cleaning this juicer is the more challenging task. Although this machine is designed for a self-cleaning mechanism, it is more suitable for cleaning the machine between different juicing sessions or pre-cleaning procedures before manual cleaning. The juicing screen and spinning brush are quite laborious to clean and will require some effort and time for it.
Controls: The juicers have only one switch that controls all of the juicer’s functions – forward (On) and reverse (Rev) function.
Warranty: The Omega VSJ843 is equipped with the 15-year parts & labor Warranty for USA / Canada which guarantees you many years of trouble-free service.
Dimensions: 7” W × 8 1/2” D × 15 1/2” H (178mm W × 216mm D × 394mm H), weighs 11.5 pounds.
Average juice yield from 1 kg of celery: 700ml – 730ml depending on the produce.
Summary: The Omega VSJ 843 Vertical Slow masticating Juicer comes with a bunch of patented innovations that make this machine one of the best among the Vertical Slow Juicers. The unique twin-wing auger, new juicing screen and wiping blade, the no-drip tap, and an upgraded the motor that delivers better torque make this machine not only very efficient with processing ingredients and delivers very high yield with minimum pulp for most ingredients but also easiest to clean among the vertical slow juicers.
Although this juicer is slowest to process celery because of the need for pre-cut, it makes high-quality juice and this juicer is also multitasking that able to process almost any ingredients available for juicing.
As an extra benefit, this machine has a very modest footprint so it will not take much space at your counter.
Omega VRT843 Vertical Slow Masticating Juicer Pro and Cons for Juicing Celery
- Very high yield;
- Clean up is the second easiest after single auger;
- Easy assemble/disassemble and use;
- Good juice quality;
- Multi-functional and could be used for a wide range of produce types;
- Needs pre-cutting for celery juicing, otherwise will clog;
- It is the slowest among all juicer types to process celery juice due to extra time taken for pre-cutting;
- Narrow pulp outlet prone to clogging;
#4 Centrifugal Juicer
Centrifugal juicers are the simplest juicer type. They use a juicing screen that consists of a grating disc and perforated drum that spins at a very high speed of over 10,000 RPMs. The grating disc rips apart and chops the produce that pushed with centrifugal force towards the perforated screen where the liquid content of the chopped produce is released through the meshed screen. The high-speed centrifugal process aerates the juice and delivers very oxides and watery output. So, the centrifugal juicers deliver the lowest quality juice with the shortest shelf life.
Although the centrifugal juicers are not as multi-functional as the types above and process a limited range of ingredients they are perfectly capable to process a celery juice. The centrifugal juicers are the fastest and easiest to use and generally, they are much cheaper than all the juicers above.
We selected a very affordable L’Equipe Centrifugal juicer that is known for its high juice yield.
L’Equip Centrifugal Juicer with Extra Wide Feeder Mouth

How to Select the Best Juicer for Juicing Celery
Surprisingly, all four types of juicers – horizontal single auger, twin gear, vertical single auger and centrifugal – produce nearly similar yield for celery juice. That means any type of machine is able to juice celery efficiently. So, while selecting juicer for celery processing you have to consider other parameters such as juice quality, how easy is juicer to assemble/disassemble, use, and clean and price.
We assigned the first position to the Omega MM900HDS Low-Speed Masticating Celery Juicer because it is easiest to use and clean (has the least number of parts), does not require any celery pre-cutting for juicing, it delivers good quality juice (as any other masticating slow juicer) and it has a reasonable price. As a bonus, it is an Antony Williams favorite juicer who is the initiator of the global celery juice movement.
It should be mentioned, the majority of single auger juicers (excluding the Omega MM900HDS) usually delivers lowest celery juice yield across all the type of juicers but it is still favorite for the majority of people to juice celery because it is easy to use, clean and it is the cheapest option amongst the cold press slow masticating juicers. So if you plan to make celery juice every day and do not want to put any effort into it than this machine the best option.
We assigned the second position to the Tribest GSE-5000/5010/5050 Greenstar Elite Cold Press Masticating Juicer for extracting celery juice only because it is the most expensive juicer in our list. However, it delivers the highest juice yield (though marginal), it produces the juice with the highest nutritional value and longest juice shelf life (up to 48-72 hours). As a downside, it is most laborious to assemble/disassemble and clean because it has the largest number of parts. Although, it is most difficult to use but it is the best juicer for juicing devotee as it delivers the best juice quality not only for celery but for most of the products and shows the best yield for the most of the leafy greens and wheatgrass.
Although the Omega VSJ843QS Vertical Slow Masticating Juicer performed very well processing celery juice it was placed on the third position just because the juicer is not able to process celery without pre-cutting. However, it produces high-quality juice, delivers high yield, and not difficult to clean and use. It addition, it is a multi-functional machine and able to process the widest range of produce.
