1.H310 Easy Clean Slow Juicer: Best for Small Kitchen or Traveling

The H310 Easy Clean Slow Juicer combines ease, efficiency, and the ability to extract every last nutrient-rich drop from your favorite fruits and veggies.

And it’s so compact you can even take it when traveling, even though we didn’t primarily make it for travel. Our H310 Easy Clean Slow Juicer is best for use in a small kitchen or a single person, but it also fits neatly into a travel bag and a hotel room.

At just 4 inches in diameter and weighing under 8 pounds, it’s incredibly portable and won’t weigh you down. Plus, its Slow Squeeze Technology, rotating at a gentle 43 RPM, ensures your homemade juice is as fresh and nutrient-rich as it gets, mimicking hand-squeezed juice.

Pro tip: The quiet motor is a bonus, allowing for an undisturbed start to your morning.

Besides, this juicer has low prep and cleaning times – exactly what you need when traveling.

The H310’s Self-Feeding Hopper V2 accommodates larger chunks of fruits and vegetables, reducing prep time and making juicing on-the-go a breeze. The innovative no-strainer chamber is a marvel, merging the filter with the chamber for pulp-free juice and the easiest cleanup imaginable – a dream for those with a tight schedule.

Durability is also key for travel, and the H310 doesn’t disappoint.

Crafted from BPA-free, impact-resistant ABS plastic, this durable juicer is built for the long haul. The heavy-duty Ultem strainer and auger are also robust, promising longevity and performance.

PROS:

  • Self-feeding
  • Compact
  • Quiet
  • Versatile
  • Safe

CONS:

  • A bit expensive

    2. Nutribullet Magic Bullet Mini Juicer: Best for Really Cramped Spaces

    Nutribullet Magic Bullet Mini Juicer packs a punch for its size. It’s the go-to for the tiniest of kitchens or living spaces, thanks to its low-profile design that makes stashing it away a piece of cake.

    With a robust 400-watt motor, this little dynamo can make delicious fruit and vegetable juice, promising a nutrient-rich elixir. 

    Despite its petite stature, it boasts a surprisingly spacious 52-oz pulp bin, minimizing interruptions for emptying. This feature is a nod to its thoughtful design, maximizing efficiency in a compact package.

    However, it’s not all smooth sailing.

    We noted that the plastic components might not hold up as well as those in more premium models like Hurom.

    The hands-on approach required to push fruits and veggies down can also be a bit of a letdown, especially for those accustomed to the self-feeding luxury of more expensive juicers.

    Additionally, when it comes to the juicing prowess, it might not squeeze every last drop as effectively as its Hurom counterparts.

    PROS:

    • Affordable
    • Powerful
    • Easy cleaning
    • Portable

    CONS:

    • Fragile
    • Longer prep time
    • Less efficient

      3. Tribest Shine Cold Press Juicer: Solid Affordable Option

      The Tribest Shine Cold Press Juicer emerges as a solid, affordable option for those seeking the sweet spot between functionality and budget-friendliness. It’s a compact powerhouse, boasting a 200W motor that operates at a calm 40 rpm, ensuring a smooth juicing experience without the headache of constant jamming.

      This juicer is a crowd-pleaser for its size and efficacy, especially for juicing favorites like celery and cucumber. Users appreciate its space-saving design, making it ideal for small kitchens or those on the move. In fact, its compact footprint, measuring just 5.5 by 5.25 inches at the base, means it’ll fit just about anywhere.

      The ease of assembly and the quality of juice it produces are also big pluses, according to satisfied customers.

      Despite its many perks, the juicer isn’t without its drawbacks.

      We find it a challenge to clean compared to the more user-friendly designs of Hurom juicers, which can easily do with a quick rinse. Besides, some people dislike how many bits of pulp the finished juice has.

      PROS:

      • Affordable
      • Compact
      • Durable

      CONS:

      • Not efficient 
      • Not versatile
      • Difficult cleaning

        4. Hurom H70 Easy Clean Slow Juicer

        The Hurom H70 Easy Clean Slow Juicer is 6.8 x 8.5 x 17.2 inches and weighs 6.7 kg. Although it’s a bit more generous in size than the Hurom H310, you’ll find it’s still more compact than other slow juicers.

        As we like to say, this juicer is in the Goldilocks zone. If you want to get serious about juicing for your health and also do it with a compact cold-press juicer, the H70 is your best bet.

        And though it fits neatly on most countertops, you’ll appreciate the large, self-feeding hopper, opening, and inlet. All these elements reduce your prep time and let you add more produce without stopping the juicer. Plus, you can make more juice for the entire family. Or for the entire day.

        This juice will be very nutritious because H70 is manufactured with the Slow Squeeze Technology. Just like our other juicers, this one mimics hand-squeezing, so it gives you a high yield.

        We’re sure you’ll also love the Easy Clean Technology. We’ve designed the H70 with a strainer-free chamber and feature a two-auger design instead. That’s an advantage because the strainer catches bits of pulp, so it requires more scrubbing. But this design means you can easily rinse the H70 under a stream of cold water without any scrubbing.

         

        Hurom uses only durable, BPA-free materials and forgoes the sharp edges so you can have a worry-free juicing experience. That translates into a 10-year warranty for the motor, a 2-year warranty for the parts, and no noise during juicing.

        PROS:

        • Works for frequent juicing and families
        • Fits neatly on your countertop
        • Large, self-feeding hopper, opening, and inlet
        • Slow Squeeze Technology
        • Easy Clean Technology
        • Quiet operation
        • Durable, high-quality materials

        CONS:

        • A bit pricey (to match its quality)

          5. Dash Deluxe: Budget-Friendly Multi-Purpose Juicer

          Dash Deluxe’s slim profile and budget-friendly price tag make it an appealing choice for juice enthusiasts navigating the constraints of compact living spaces or tight budgets.

          Sporting a 130-watt motor, the Dash Deluxe doesn’t skimp on power, promising to draw out the maximum nutrients, vitamins, and flavors from a variety of produce, ranging from fruits and leafy greens to nuts and wheatgrass. 

          Warning: Optimal results require a bit of upfront work; you must chop your produce into 1-inch pieces to ensure a smooth juicing process.

          The Dash Deluxe also comes with a frozen attachment that opens up a world of possibilities for making homemade sorbet and other frozen delights. Packaged with thoughtful inclusions like a pulp measuring cup, cleaning brush, and recipe guide, it’s designed to enhance your juicing journey from start to finish.

          Now, let’s review the drawbacks.

          Some users have reported issues with clogging and questioned its durability over time, suggesting it may not withstand the rigors of frequent use.

          Additionally, the longer prep time due to the need for cutting produce into smaller pieces could be a drawback for those seeking a more efficient juicing routine.

          PROS:

          • Slim
          • Affordable
          • Versatile

          CONS:

          • Fragile
          • Prep time
          • Not efficient 

            How to Pick a Small Juicer [That’s Also Solid]

            We took you through 5 awesome models, so you can find the best small juicer for your needs. Well, here are the factors to ensure you pick a small but mighty mini juicer that doesn’t skimp on the squeeze.

            1. Squeeze Play: Juicing Efficiency

            First things first, you’re here for the juice. So, ensure your tiny titan can handle everything from the softest fruits to the toughest veggies. A good juicer extracts maximum nutrients and flavors, leaving behind dry pulp that’s practically begging for mercy.

            Alternatively, a specialized citrus juicer should be able to squeeze your oranges, lemons, and grapefruit extremely well.

            2. Size Matters: Compact Design

            You’re not looking to host a juicer jamboree on your countertop. Pick a juicer that’s compact enough to fit into your kitchen nook or cranny yet stylish enough to make you want to show it off. Bonus points if it’s lightweight and portable for those juice-on-the-go moments, like the Hurom H310.

            3. Easy-Peasy Cleaning

            Let’s be real, no one’s juicing for the joy of cleanup. Seek out a juicer with dishwasher-safe parts or a design that’s simple to rinse and go. The less time you spend scrubbing, the more time you have to enjoy that fresh juice glow. From that point of view, Hurom H310 doesn’t need any dishwasher or scrubbing – you just rinse it under a stream of water.

            4. Durability

            Your juicer might be small, but it should be mighty. Look for durable materials like stainless steel and BPA-free plastic alternatives. A juicer that’s built to last is like finding a pearl in an oyster – rare but rewarding.

            5. Motor Mojo: Power vs. Noise

            A juicer that sounds like a jet engine at 6 a.m. is a no-go. Find that sweet spot between a motor powerful enough to tackle dense produce but quiet enough to keep your morning zen intact.

            6. Safety First: Ensuring a Secure Juicing Experience

            Opt for a juicer with built-in safety features. It should only spring to life when everything’s locked in place. Because juicing should be about nourishing your body, not living on the edge.

            7. Versatility: The Spice of Life

            Sure, you’re here for the juice, but what if your juicer could whip up sorbets or nut milk, too? A versatile juicer that can moonlight as a chef’s assistant is like hitting the kitchen gadget jackpot.

            And yes, all the Hurom juicers on this list can do that because we want to make healthy living easy and accessible.

            So, check our collection and find the best juicer for your needs.
