Juice smoothies have become popular pick-me-up in the morning, but which juicers give you the maximum bang for your buck? 

With the current juice-craze buzzing in everyone’s mind, resident chef at the Farmer’s Market Sur La Table, Natascha Warden, put home juicers to the test. 

Warden said, “It’s nice now because as technology advances and they make new and different types of models, instead of maybe choking on a seed, you don’t have to do that anymore,” This is mainly because many machines separate for you, cutting down on prep. 

Cuisinart’s Juice Extractor can be considered as an economical choice as it costs only $100. It also consists of a large food tube which minimizes cutting. Along with the above mentioned points, it has a nice 16-ounce container. 

Breville’s 5 speed Ikon makes juice in merely 5 seconds. It costs $199. It accepts the material without slicing or dicing, which proves to be extremely useful when you are in a hurry. You can find juicer reviews and recipes at http://www.juicersandrecipes.com/ 

For just $60 more, the Omega Nutrition Center Juicer is a juice bar favourite. It proves to be useful for making cold-pressed juice. You can also make pastas and nut milks with this. 

Finally, the Hurom Juice and Smoothie Maker is the Ferrari of all juicers at $399. It has a large motor that breaks down seeds, skin and tough produce. You can also make baby food, smoothies and soups using it. It also has a pump control lever which helps to manage the amount of substance if any, in your drink.
