How We Selected the Best Juicer
Here, we selected the list of juicers that deliver the best yield within their type. We also summarised the strengths and weaknesses of different juicer s types for juicing carrots and other root ingredients. So by the end of the article, it must be easier for you to decide what type and model of the juicer is the best for you and which juicer parameters you may scarify on behalf of others.
P.S. We will consider only reputable brands (the majority of them from South Korea and the USA) machine which are present on the market for the number of years and disregard the Chinese knockoff machines which are flooded the juicers market in great numbers often produced by generic manufactures and distributed under various brands by short-live companies.
Champion Masticating Juicers
The Champion juicer technology employs the single screw-like auger that rotates at the 1750 RPMs speed. The auger grates masticate or chews the produce first and then squeezes it against the meshed screen to extract the juice. Unlike modern single auger masticating juicer, the Champion juicer auger covered with the few rows of sharp metal teeth that allow to grate and chew produce to a better extent than another single auger juicer.
Because Champion juicers use a fast 1750 RPMs speed and metal teeth that similar to the centrifugal juicer’s blades, it is very good at processing firm ingredients like carrot, beetroot, and ginger and could be regarded as the ultimate roots juicer.
On the other hand, the fast speed the Champion juicer process ingredients lead to a higher degree of juice oxidation than a modern masticating juicer. Therefore, the juice produced by Champion juicers has a shorter shelf-life and must be consumed immediately.
Pros for juicing roots:
- Produces the best juice yield from carrots, beets, ginger, and other roots;
- Very easy to feed Champion juicer with firm ingredients such as whole carrots or beets without any jamming;
- Fast and can make a large amount of juice in a short period of time;
- Easy to clean;
- Designed to perform a range of food processing tasks;
Cons for juicing roots:
- Does not handle leafy greens, wheatgrass and soft produce without extra auger;
- Oxidizes juice.
Yield: 2 pounds of carrots yields between 12.5 oz. and 18.5 oz. of juice depending on the juiciness of carrots.
#1 Champion Classic 2000, Classic Commercial 2000, Legacy 3000, Elite 4000, and Professional 5000 Juicers
The Champion juicer comes in 5 models – Champion Classic 2000, Champion Classic Commercial 2000, Legacy 3000, Elite 4000, and Champion Professional 5000. These five models all have the identical motor and very different exterior and interior design. Nevertheless, they have similar juice yield and excel at similar ingredients when they do not come to the help of extra attachments.
Body Unit and Power: The older Champion juicer models body units – the Champion Classic 2000 and Classic Commercial 2000 – are made from the painted stainless steel, the newer models – Legacy 3000, Elite 4000, and Champion Professional 5000 – are made from durable plastic.
Even though all models have a different design they all feature identical powerful 540 watts motor, yet, the commercial 2000 unit has a bit stronger and more durable motor with the outstanding torque that can withstand commercial loads.
This powerful motor rotates the auger with rather fast 1750 RPMs speed for all models excluding the 500o model that comes with the variable speeds and has an option to select the speed that rotates from 350 RPMs to 1750 RPMs.
Functionality and Attachments: Champion juicer excels at juicing root veggies like carrots, beets, ginger, and other, it actually shows the best performance across all juicer for this type of produce with the yield on average 20-35% higher than single auger masticating juices.
The same is good at juicing celery and some of the cruciferous vegetables (though not all) such as cabbage, Brussel sprouts, cauliflower, and broccoli for that produce.
It is also quite good at juicing some soft vegetables and fruits such as tomatoes and grape, while it delivers lower than average yield for citrus fruits, approx. 20-30% less yield than vertical masticating juicers.
While firm fruits like apple and pears are not a strong side of the Champion juicer which delivers up to 15-25% less yield than single auger masticating juices.
A champion Juicer with a standard auger does not handle well leafy greens like spinach or kale and delivers a low yield about 50% or less than a standard single auger masticating juicer. While the newer models the 4000 and 5000 include in the set the separate green auger for leafy greens which does very well leafy greens juicing job.
Besides, the champion juicer does very well a range of food processing tasks such as excellent quality nut butter, frozen treats, baby food, and other food homogenizing tasks.
Design and Parts: The Champion juicers model all have different to modern masticating juicers auger design, it has a screw with few rows of sharp teeth that help to grate the ingredients to really smaller. The metal teeth are a similar future for all juicers while the shape is various for different Champion models.
The different champion juicer models have some differences in the screen design with the meshed stainless steel screen and plastic frame. Where Champion 2000 and 3000 models juicing have an older design made of two parts wand 3000, 4000, 5000 models have the screen very similar to modern masticating juicers.
The Champion2000 and 3000 models come with 1.75” and 300, 4000, and 5000 with 2.25” feeding chute opening that is bigger than most of the modern juicers that make it easier to feed ingredients.
Containers: All Champion juicers models include only plastic juice collection containers and do not have the pulp collection container.
Cleaning and Using: All Champion juicer models (despite the fact they have a different design) are very easy to assemble disassemble and clean typical for all single auger masticating juicers. While the auger has sharp teeth and the user must be careful when cleaning the auger.
The newer models have the dishwasher save parts while the models are recommended to clean manually.
Warranty: All the Champion juicer equipped with a 10-years warranty on the motor and 1 year on the auger, blade, and screen warranty.
Summary: No doubt, the Champion is the best juicer for processing root vegetables that deliver the highest yield across all types of juicers (only Super Juicer will outbid the Champion at these tasks). It also juices well celery, cruciferous veggies, and some softer vegetables extracting one the highest juice yield for them. Champion also the best machine for making frozen treats, nut butter, and other homogenizing tasks. While it does operate with a higher speed than most of the masticating machine and its juice has a shorter shelf life but it extracts one of the richest and tastiest juice.
In addition, it is 100% made in the USA, massive (16.7” x 7.6” x 8”), heavy (23 – 27 pounds depending on model), and very durable.
Centrifugals are very popular entry-level juicers. They are fast, easy to use, can feed the whole beets or carrots without pre-cutting, and available usually at a cheaper price than slow masticating machines.
This type of juicer technology uses a centrifugal force to extract the juice from the produce. The fast rotating (4000-15000 RPMs) filter basket constructed with blades and meshed screen grates the ingredients and then spin them against the screen to extract the juice.
Centrifugal juicers are very efficient at extracting juice from beets, carrots, ginger, and most of the other root ingredients. To be precise, they extract similar to the Champion Juicer between 12.5 oz. and 18.5 oz. of juice from 2 pounds of carrots depending on the juiciness of carrots. That is about 20% higher compared to most of the single auger and twin gear masticating juicers (excluding only twin gear Super Angel Juicer).
On the other hand, this type of machine has some drawbacks. First, the juicer fast processing speed tends to oxidize juice quickly. Second, the extracted juice is usually coming out watery and splits into a pulpy low and the watery top ones. As a result, the juice extracted with centrifugal machines has a short shelf life and must be consumed immediately. This all makes the juice extracted with centrifugal juicers the lower quality than juiced with slow type masticating machines.
Centrifugal Juicers Strengths:
- Fast and easy process even large volumes of juice;
- Deliver one of the highest yields from beets, carrots, and other firm veggies;
- Generally cheaper than slow masticating juicers (from $40 to $350);
Centrifugal Juicers Weaknesses:
- Produce the lowest quality of juice compare to slow juicers;
- More difficult to clean than single auger masticating juicers;
- Produce a lot of foam from almost all ingredients;
- Louder than masticating juicers.
Yield: Best Centrifugal juicers we list below delivers similar to Champion juicer 12.5 oz. and 18.5 oz. from 2 pounds of carrots depending on the juiciness of carrots.

Twin Gear Masticating Juicers
Twin Gears Cold Press Slow Masticating juicers employ two closely aligned rotating stainless steel gears to chew and crush the produce. The two gears usually rotate with slow 80-160 RPM speed, so technically use the slow cold-press process to extract the juice.
Pros for juicing roots:
- Highest juice yield;
- Best juice quality;
- Longest juicers shelf-life;
- Handles a wide range of produces;
Cons for juicing roots:
- Laborious to clean;
- Most expensive type of juicers.
Yield: The twin gear masticating juicers are usually delivered the highest juice yield for most of the ingredients. While most of them underperform juicing carrots, beets, and other roots produce delivering 5-7% less juice than Champion and Centrifugal juicers, the Super Ange Juicer extracts 20% more juice yield from roots ingredients than other juicers on the market.
Super Angel Juicer
The Super Anger Juicer is a premium and expensive twin gear masticating machine. It is available in 4 very similar models and manufactured in South Korea by the company with a great reputation. Although this premium machine is not for everyone still it delivers the highest juice yield across all types of and juicer models.
Body Unit and Power: The Super Angel base unit is 100% made from food-grade stainless steel, no wonder it looks absolutely stunning. The body houses a powerful 180 watts motor that delivers a 3 HP grinding force and rotates the gears with the 82 RPMs speed.
It features a nice looking control panel that is equipped with START, STOP, REVERSE buttons, and a power indicator light.
Besides, the juicer equipped with the few safety features that include the sensor that prevents the juicer from operating if it is not assembled properly, the sensor that shut off the juicer if the hard item like a spoon will get into the feeding chute, the automatic overheating system which will stop the machine if its temperature reaches 158 F/70C, the electric shock protection system and other.
Functionality and attachments
- The Super Angel Juicer is not only delivered 20%-25% more carrot and beets juice than Champion and Breville but also it outputs the highest yield almost from all ingredients;
- It also excels at celery and outputs the best yield, the leafy greens including wheatgrass and most exotic ingredients line pine needs;
- It delivers the best yield from apple and firm fruits;
- While it will not outbid good vertical masticating juicer and deliver the same or 5% fewer juice yields from soft ingredients, however, with the optional soft fruit screen Extracting housing it will outbid even vertical juicer.
There is only one Super Angel Juicer model that includes extra accessories in the set. While you can buy a range of optional attachment – Soft Fruits, Grinding, and Nut Butter Extracting Housings.
Designs and Parts: Super Angel Juicer is a truly unique also when it comes to its construction. Unlike many other masticating juicers it has very few constructional parts. To be precise, the Super Angel Extracting Housing incorporates in one part the juicing chamber with an irremovable feeding chute and juicing screen. Where the juicing screen has a three-stage filter that ensures that the juice extracted to the last drop.
It also has a splashing guard that covers the juicing screen on the top, though, this part is optional and is used only when selected types of ingredients are processed.
The Super Angel juicer features the 1.7 inches/43 mm in diameter feeding chute opening which is also the relatively large for masticating juicer still requires ingredients pre-cutting.
Besides, the juicer gears are made from solid food grade antibacterial stainless steel which is rotated with slow 82 RPMs.
Containers: All models of Super Angel Juicer come with a premium Pyrex round-shaped Glass Juice Jug and plastic pulp collection container.
Cleaning and Using: The Super Angel Juicer is comprised of a small number of constructional parts, therefore, it is very easy to assemble and disassemble unlike most of the twin gear masticating devices.
While cleaning this juicer will require some time and effort. It should be cleaned straight after juicing and disassembling. If not, it may build up screen blocking with dry fiber residues that could result in a decreasing ratio of juice yield. Each Super Angel set includes the special brush and scrubber for cleaning screen that is a great help, still, it will take around 4-5 minutes.
Warranty: The Super Angel Juicer covered with 10-year Limited Warranty for the base unit and splash guard and 5- year warranty for twin gear set, extracting housing, and screen scraper.
Summary: The Super Angel is a very expensive juicer and probably not the option for most people who intend to juice rather cheap carrots, beetroot, and other roots produce. However, we included it in the list since it does not only deliver the highest yield across all type of juicer and outbids by at least 20% the best extractor for these type ingredients such as Champion juicer and Breville centrifugal machines but also can extract the highest yield for most of the ingredients. Besides, it is a unique machine 100% made from stainless steel and must be a priority option for people who do juice to fight serious ailments.
Are you still confused with all the pros and cons of the juicers that deliver the best carrots, beets, and other roots juice yield? No wonder, it comes out that the Champion Juicer and Centrifugal Juicers that deliver the highest yield among the affordable machines extract inferior quality juice with shorter shelf life than the Single Auger Masticating juicers that deliver the superior quality juice but 20% less yield. While the Super Angel machine that can extract the highest yield and best quality juice is so expensive that not many people can afford it. Here we will summarise the result to help to decide which juicer is the best for you.
Champion Juicer is a great machine that outputs the best juice yield (marginally higher than centrifugal juicers), well built and durable, and 100% made in the USA. Although, it delivers the juice with the short shelf-life but the very tasty one that does not separate into the thicker and watery parts as the juice extracted with a centrifugal juicer. While it is not able to extract well leafy greens juice it handles very well root veggies, makes excellent frozen desserts and baby food. Nevertheless, it is an awesome machine for those who are fun of reliable old school gadgets.
Centrifugal Breville JE98XL Juice Fountain Plus and Breville BJE200XL Compact Juicer are less versatile machines among all juicer styles and handle a limited variety of produce – firm veggies and fruits, celery, and citruses – and useless at leafy greens and most of the other ingredients. These types of machines will also produce the lowest juice quality which must be consumed immediately. However, the centrifugal juicers are the cheapest and quickest machines and will be an excellent entry juicer option. Both machines extract a similar yield and quality while BJE200XL Compact comes with one speed and JE98XL Juice Fountain comes with two speeds thus it is slightly more versatile and more expensive.
The Vertical and Horizontal Single Auger machines extract the same amount of juice yield but they differ by a few other parameters.
The Vertical machines are the most versatile juicers across all types that handle the widest range of products from leafy greens to soft fruits delivering high-quality juice similar to other masticating machines. However, this type of juicer will need some produce preparation that includes pre-cutting the beets and carrots into smaller pieces, otherwise, they may jam the machine. So, if you are looking for the most versatile machine which delivers high-quality juice and decent yield for the majority of the produces and do not mind the pre-cutting ingredients before juicing and slightly lower juice yield extracted from carrots, beets, and other roots then one of the Hurom juicers is must be your choice depending on your budget.
The Single Auger Horizontal Juicer are very versatile machines, specifically what concerns food processing tasks. They are excellent for juicing leafy greens and wheatgrass while delivering a bit inferior juice yield when juicing roots. Most important they are easiest to clean and the cheapest among the masticating juicers. So, if you want to buy the versatile machine that extracts not only quality carrots and beets juice but also leafy green juice then the Tribest Soloststar 4 or Omega J8006HDS Slow Masticating Juicer will be the best options. Besides, both machines have the longest in the industry 15 years warranty from very reputable companies.
Finally, the Super Angel Juicer will produce the highest yield (20 % more than Champion juicer and centrifugal Juicers and 40% more than single auger juicers) and the best quality juice with the longest shelf life (up to 72 hours) but it is the most expensive juicing machine not only in our list but also in the masticating juicers market. Nevertheless, if you want to become a real juicing enthusiast than this juicer is a great option. Also, the twin gear juicer will handle a wide range of produce including leafy greens and wheatgrass.
