The Lifetimer: Champion 2000+
This masticating juicer (it slowly chews up produce rather than high-speed-grinding it) takes longer to extract juice, but because it works more slowly, it generates less heat, keeping nutritious enzymes intact. It can also make jams, baby food, nut butters and ice cream. $244.99 at Fante’s, Philadelphia.
The Showpiece: Norwalk 275
The best of the best. This hydraulic-press juicer grinds fruits and vegetables down to the cellular level, for silky, nutrient-rich juice. At 56.5 pounds, it’s more than double the weight of most models, but the high yield and sweet 12-year warranty justify the heft—and the price tag. $2,495 at Norwalkjuicers.com.
