Lexen GP27

Price: $49.95 44.95

This old school looking hand juicer is perfect for multiple purpose juicing. It easily squeezes juice from wheatgrass, celery, lettuce, parsley, kale, spinach, or any other leafy vegetable you want. We believe it is the principal value of this item.

It will also work with carrots or other hard vegetables, but if those kinds of vegetables are the primary purpose, we suggest choosing other item. Despite its complicated look, it can be cleaned very easily.

The Healthy Juicer product is something in between the simple hand press and an electric juicer. The “motor” of this item is a Hand-Crank, which you have to spin around to get your fresh, green juice.

The only thing you need is a sturdy table or counter in your kitchen. The juicer has a secure-locking suction base and a table clamp to stand stable on the surface.

PROS

  • perfect leafs juicer
  • made of solid materials
  • very efficient
  • easy to cleanup

CONS

  • big
  • needs a solid table
  • more significant vegetables/fruit needs to be cut into smaller pieces
OXO good grips

Price: $14.99

This plastic hand squeezer is suitable for all kinds of citruses. It comes together with the cup placed under the squeezer. Due to the measurement markings on it, you know exactly how much juice you already pressed (up to 350 ml).

OXO citrus juicer has two sizes of the reamer. That is why it can easily be at the same time lime, orange, or even grapefruit juicer. Its body is shaped for comfortable holding in one hand while squeezing with the other.

The juicer is made of plastic; it is free from BPA and can be safely clean in the dishwasher. This OXO juicer we consider more suitable for occasional purpose than for high volume squeezing.

PROS

  • reasonable price
  • dishwasher safe
  • very easy to clean
  • goes with two sizes of the reamer

CONS

  • made of plastic, will not last for ages
  • can leave some pulp in your juice
Drizom citrus juicer

This kitchen tool is not only a citrus fruit juice squeezer. Thanks to the changeable upperparts, it is also a grater and an egg yolk separator. Besides, It doesn’t take much space in the kitchen (you can hide all elements inside it).

A significant advantage of this multifunctional item is the measurement markings on the cup.

It is made of food-grade ABS material, stainless steel, and it’s BPA-Free. The reamer is provided with 12th teeth to squeeze the maximum of juice from one lemon. The large 3-claw reamer is designed to get maximum juice from bigger fruit, like orange or even grapefruit.

PROS

  • multifunctional, can be used not only as a juicer
  • dishwasher friendly
  • easy to store, doesn’t take much space
  • two variants of the reamer

Helix citrus juicer

Price: $20.00

What makes this hand squeezer stand out among the others? It demands only a minimum of power from its user. One can say it is hassle-free. All because of its unique twisting mechanism. You need to put the fruit inside it and twist the handles against each other.

This Citrus Juicer requires horizontal, not vertical squeezing. That is why it is powered more by shoulders, not hands strength.   

Joseph Joseph’s hand juicer is made of durable, safe materials like stainless steel and nylon. It consists of two parts, easily separated and even easier cleaned (also in the dishwasher).

PROS

  • only minimal muscle strength needed
  •  no seeds in juice
  • easy to clean

CONS

  • only for small citruses, like lemons and limes
  • squeezes around 80 % of a fruit

Summing up

Hand squeezers are easy to clean, but most of them demand a decent amount of strength from their user. They are perfect for occasional usage, preferably not for large scale juicing. Just imagine squeezing dozens of oranges or grapefruits with your bare hands… sounds tiring.

Unfortunately, with manual juicing, you cannot squeeze all the juice from the fruit. But it also happens with many electric juicers. 

The number one product for us is – Zulay Professional Heavy Duty Citrus Juicer, which is more expensive than the others and more efficient, durable, and suitable for daily use.
