JUICE BOOST­ERS

Australian T3 - - TECHLIFE -

There are two ways to con­sume five car­rots, half a head of broc­coli, a fin­ger of ginger and a beet­root in five min­utes. One of them is to juice. The other is gonna be un­pleas­ant…

Philips Avance HR1871 (cen­trifu­gal) With 800 watts in the tank, this once how­itzered beet­root onto our ceil­ing, be­cause we for­got to put the ram­mer/lid on in time. It juices very ef­fec­tively but it’s noisy and too big. Be­ing dish­washer-able and cheap wins it bonus points, though. $249, philips.com.au 3/5 Braun Mul­tiquick 7 (cen­trifu­gal) With a smaller foot­print than the Philips, and be­ing less noisy, this is nar­rowly the stronger bud­get op­tion. The feed pipe is wide and the juice is re­ally good for the price. Yield isn’t amaz­ing, though, and it drips like crazy. $199, braun­house­hold.com/en­au 4/5

Omega VSJ 843 RS (mas­ti­cat­ing) This is quiet and makes both the best and the most juice on test. Un­like the other mod­els here, there’s a nar­row feed pipe on the Omega, which means you need to chop up veg be­fore juic­ing – less than ideal for fren­zied morn­ings. US$430, dis­coun­tjuicers.com 3/5

Kuvings B6000 (mas­ti­cat­ing) Almost a match for the Omega on qual­ity – it’s quiet and ex­tracts juice aplenty – but cru­cially Kuvings’ ma­chine has a chute big enough to drop broc­coli heads, ap­ples and huge car­rots down. That com­bi­na­tion makes it worth the con­sid­er­able cost. $599, kuvings.net.au 5/5
