6 Best Juicers for Leafy Greens Juicing — 2020 Guide

Extract­ing the juice from Leafy Greens is rather a chal­leng­ing task and not every style of juicer will be able to han­dle it prop­er­ly. All Mas­ti­cat­ing Cold Press Slow Juicers such as Twin Gear, Hor­i­zon­tal Sin­gle Auger, and Ver­ti­cal Sin­gle Auger but exclud­ing the fast Mas­ti­cat­ing Cham­pi­on Juicers will do very well at juic­ing all types of fleshy and non-fleshy leafy greens. While even pre­mi­um Cen­trifu­gal juicers will be able to extract juice ONLY from the fleshy greens like bok choy, let­tuce, and oth­ers (low yield though) but almost use­less when juic­ing the non-fleshy pro­duce like kale, pars­ley, or arugula.

So, we will not review the cen­trifu­gal juicers in this arti­cle since it is about the best juic­ing machines for extract­ing the juice from Leafy Greens.

How We Select the Best Juicers for Leafy Greens

Depend­ing on what type of Leafy Greens pro­duce you are intend­ing to juice the dif­fer­ent types of mas­ti­cat­ing juicers will han­dle them with var­i­ous degrees of suc­cess. And unfor­tu­nate­ly, there is no such thing as the per­fect machine for every­thing, each type has its pros and cons such as pro­duc­ing a lot of foam but offer the best yield, mul­ti­func­tion­al but very expensive.

So, we will not present the list of so-called best juicers for the leafy greens but in fact list the ama­zon best-sell­ing juic­ing machines as the major­i­ty of reviews do. Instead, we will describe the pros and cons of each type of juice extrac­tors that work well for juic­ing greens and offer you the pre­mi­um and bud­get mod­el for each type of machine, so you will be able to choose the best machine that will tru­ly best for your needs.

Notice: To dis­pel unre­al­is­tic expec­ta­tions about juic­ing, we have to men­tion that the spinach will always pro­duce an enor­mous amount of foam regard­less type of juicer you use.

Twin-Gear Masticating/Triturating Slow Cold Press Juicers

Twin-Gear mas­ti­cat­ing juicers press and crash pro­duce between two tight­ly rotat­ed togeth­er rod-shaped gears which then press the juice against the fine screen. The gears usu­al­ly rotate with the slow 82–160 rpm speed which the fastest among all the mas­ti­cat­ing slow juicers.

The Twin Gear mod­els are the ide­al machines for juic­ing leafy greens, wheat­grass, and all veg­eta­bles, and even most fruits.

Pros:

  • Offer the best leafy greens juice qual­i­ty of all and thus rec­om­mend by a nutritionist;
  • Deliv­er the high­est yield for leafy greens and most of the oth­er produce;
  • Less pulpy leafy greens out­put than oth­er mas­ti­cat­ing juices

Cons:

  • They are not eas­i­est to use and clean;
  • Usu­al­ly pro­duce more foam (because they fastest, the faster speed the more foam);
  • Most expen­sive.

The Hurom H‑AA Slow Juicer is one of the lat­est 3rd gen­er­a­tion Clas­sic mid-range ver­ti­cal juicer mod­els by the South Kore­an Hurom Com­pa­ny which is the inven­tor of the ver­ti­cal slow juicer mod­el and the world largest man­u­fac­ture of mas­ti­cat­ing s juicers.

  • Acces­sories: two (2) brush­es, tofu press, dry­ing rack (option­al), hop­per lid for stor­age (option­al).

Motor and Body Unit: Hurom H‑AA Slow Juicer has a very sleek and mod­ern design. The ABS plas­tic hous­es the high-qual­i­ty sin­gle-phase induc­tion 150 Watts motor with excel­lent torque, so it does not expe­ri­ence any clog­ging with firm ingre­di­ents like beets or car­rots. It runs the auger with a slow speed of only 43 rpm.

The machine is equipped with a cool­ing fan and over­heat­ing sys­tem, which auto­mat­i­cal­ly stops the motor if it is over­loaded. It also has an inbuilt safe­ty mag­net­ic sen­sor that will not start the machine unless it is assem­bled the right way. The Juicer is designed to run for up to 30 min before the user advis­es to cool it out before con­tin­u­ing, how­ev­er, in real­i­ty, it may run for a few hours with­out stopping.

Drum, Hop­per, and Feed­ing Chute: The Hurom drum with a capac­i­ty of 17.6 oz./500 ml made of BPA-free Tri­tan copoly­ester mate­r­i­al and fea­tures a fair­ly wide pulp out­let and inno­v­a­tive pulp con­trol lever that designed to release the pulp if it is stack thus min­i­miz­ing clogging.

The Spout comes with a non-drip juic­ing cap that keeps juice inside the cham­ber until you open it. It is also equipped with a good qual­i­ty bush­ing that pre­vents drum leaking.

The feed­ing chute has a 1.5 X 2 inch­es cres­cent shape open­ing. The leafy greens ingre­di­ents (as with any oth­er ver­ti­cal machine) must be cut into 1–2 inch­es pieces before feed­ing them into the chute oth­er­wise it will clog.

The Hop­per and feed­ing chute is also pro­vid­ed with safe­ty fea­tures that pre­vent the machine from run­ning if it is not prop­er­ly con­nect­ed to the drum. The hop­per is made from a semi­trans­par­ent mate­r­i­al that allows the user to see the ingre­di­ents as they are insert­ed into the chamber.

Gears/Auger: The machine fea­tures a two-wing sin­gle ver­ti­cal auger made of strong and chem­i­cals resis­tant GE Ultem poly­mer. The two-wings auger has a new and improved design as com­pared to the Hurom 2nd gen­er­a­tion juicers that insur­ers more effi­cient cut­ting of the prod­uct when they com­ing down to the auger stage for the processing.

Juic­ing Screen: It con­sists of two parts — the Juic­ing Screen and Spin­ning Brush­es. The juic­ing screen sieves the mashed pro­duce sep­a­rat­ing the juice and pulp while the Spin­ning Brush ensures that the juice and pulp mixed thor­ough­ly before the sep­a­ra­tion thus max­i­miz­ing the nation­al val­ue and yield of the final juice.

The juic­ing screen is made of extra strong Ultem plas­tic with stain­less steel sieves, while the spin­ning brush is made of the same extra-strong Ultem plas­tic with sil­i­con blades.

The juicer pack­age also includes two(2) addi­tion­al screens – the Coarse screen (for soft fruits and veg­gies juic­ing) and Blank screen for mak­ing smooth­ies, frozen treats, nut milk, and oth­er homog­e­niz­ing food pro­cess­ing tasks.

Con­tain­ers: The H‑AA Slow Juicer comes with nest­ing 35 oz./1000ml Juice and Pulp con­tain­ers are both made from BPA-free impact-resis­tant Tri­tan copoly­ester material.

Clean­ing and assembling/disassembling: The ver­ti­cal juicer gen­er­al­ly is not the eas­i­est to clean as they have not very easy to clean drum, small pulp out­let, and largest juic­ing screen. How­ev­er, some of the 2nd and 3rd gen­er­a­tion juicers includ­ing Hurom H‑AA that come with the non-drip cap juic­ing out­let allows doing a pre­wash by pour­ing some after and run­ning juicers after the juic­ing ses­sion. This pro­ce­dure allows you to do some job and make it eas­i­er to clean the juicer after it is dis­as­sem­bled. The most com­pli­cat­ed part to clean in this machine is the juic­ing screen that must be scrapped with the brush­es pro­vid­ed in the package.

They spend a lot of time and effort on juicer improve­ment and R & D, there­fore, no doubt they are ahead of all oth­er man­u­fac­tur­ers when inno­vat­ing this type of juicer.

The Hurom H‑AA mod­el has many new fea­tures such as a pulp con­trol lever, new auger two-wing design, the no-drip juic­ing out­let cap the Hurom ear­li­er inven­tion that was intro­duced with 2nd gen­er­a­tion mod­els and lat­er was repli­cat­ed by oth­er brands.

Summary

If you want the best of the best machine for juic­ing Leafy Greens then you will go for the Twin Gear type of machine. No doubt, the Super Angel Juicer is the best machine avail­able on the mar­ket. It is 100% made of stain­less steel, so you will not have any ques­tions regard­ing the mate­r­i­al it is con­struct­ed. It also han­dles per­fect­ly not only the leafy greens but also almost any ingre­di­ents you may wish to juice. How­ev­er, it has only one issue — a very high price. Still, the Omega TWN30S is the juicer that is worth con­sid­er­ing if you decide to go for the Twin Gear machine.

If you pre­fer a no-brain­er juicer that is easy to use and clean but still will deliv­er high-qual­i­ty juice and decent yield then go for pre­mi­um Omega NC800/NC900 or bud­get Omega CNC80S. Both Omegas are a great option and almost have the same per­for­mance but CN has bet­ter func­tion­al­i­ty, so it depends on your bud­get, both of them are great for Leafy Greens and a large vari­ety of oth­er ingre­di­ents such as firm fruit and veg­etable, cit­ruses, and others.

How­ev­er, if you plan to juice not only the Leafy Greens but also a vari­ety of oth­er pro­duces then the ver­ti­cal juicer option is what you need. The only prob­lem, you have to pre-cut your leafy greens and put some effort feed­ing the juicer, while for oth­er any oth­er ingre­di­ents that are not Leafy Greens these machines are almost self-feed­ing. So if you are not tight on the bud­get, the H‑AA Slow Juicer machine is not only one of the best ver­ti­cal juicer on the mar­ket but also deliv­er the high­est yield for leafy greens, the same as for most of the oth­er ingre­di­ents. If you are tight on a bud­get that Shine Kitchen by Tribest is a very decent alter­na­tive to consider.
