10 Best Manual Juicer Presses. Review Guide

[As the name implies, a manual juicer-press is a mechanical device, the principle of which is to literally “press” raw materials in order to extract juice from fruits. Most often, these models are designed to process soft citrus fruits such as lemons or oranges, but the best mechanisms can handle hard pomegranates. In addition, manual models have many advantages: they do not depend on a mains connection, they last much longer than electric ones and require less maintenance time.

Since the production of manual mechanical models does not require factory facilities, the main suppliers of juicer presses in the budget price segment are little-known brands of Chinese origin. But in the case of the best professional devices intended for use in bars and restaurants, Turkish (Vittorio Venetti, Maskot, CAN CAN) and European (Joseph Joseph) brands are engaged in their development, while assembly is carried out mainly in China. Another interesting fact: the leaders in the production of juicers-presses for industrial production are domestic brands (“Farmer”).

The largest volume

At one time, this juicer-press can squeeze 15 liters of juice from raw materials, which makes it a record holder on the market!

  • Mechanism type: screw press
  • Juice container: no
  • Warranty: 1 year

Were you looking for a mechanical press for industrial production or don’t know how to quickly squeeze juice from a country harvest? Then this juicer is to the rescue! The press can be used to process citrus fruits, pomegranates, various vegetables and fruits, as well as to press cheese – fortunately, the volume of the main container of 15 liters allows you to experiment with the size of the fruits loaded into the juicer. The entire structure of the screw mechanism is made of food-grade stainless steel and is equipped with a splash guard. The design of the juicer does not provide for a separate bowl for collecting liquid, but the juice is poured onto a special plate with a spout, from where it can be immediately poured into suitable containers. Perhaps the disadvantages include the fact that the device is only suitable for producing juice in large volumes.

Pros and cons

  • Large volume
  • Suitable for any raw material
  • Durable construction and quality materials
  • Only suitable for high volume spinning

Compact size

Despite being efficient, this little juicer can be tucked away in your kitchen cabinet drawer – it takes up so little space!

  • Country: UK (made in China)
  • Mechanism type: lever press
  • Juice container: no
  • Warranty: n/a

This miniature mechanical juicer may seem inefficient, but don’t be fooled by its looks! The power of the press is sure to be enough to squeeze juice from lemons, limes, tangerines and even small oranges. This is ensured by the combined method of fruit processing: the raw material is first squeezed by a press, and only then it is scrolled by a cone, which squeezes out the maximum amount of juice. In order to prevent the bones and large pulp from getting into the liquid, a filter with holes is provided inside, which is made of safe food-grade plastic. Another nice feature is that the device can be washed in the dishwasher. However, when using it, you should be careful, because with an abundance of juice, the liquid flows out of the edges of the bowl, which can be attributed to the minuses.

Pros and cons

  • Compact and takes up little space
  • Suitable for citrus
  • Has an internal filter
  • Sometimes the cup leaks liquid

Top 8. Mattis 0.3

Best case ergonomics

This stylish juicer is made in the form of a small capsule with a convenient lid, which greatly simplifies storage.

  • Country: China
  • Movement type: conical
  • Juice container: yes
  • Warranty: n/a

Unusual for a mechanical juicer, the shape is the first thing buyers pay attention to, but a powerful wringer is hidden inside the ergonomic body! A special cone system works as follows: if you install the mechanism with the “outward” cone, then the juicer can be used to press cut citrus fruits, and in the “inside” position, it becomes possible to squeeze juice from small berries. A plastic filter with holes is responsible for filtration (and in general, the entire juicer is made of high-quality ABS plastic), and all the liquid flows into the 300 ml inner bowl. The disadvantages include too small filter holes, which are often clogged – during operation, the juicer will have to be cleaned periodically.

Pros and cons

  • Compact body with modern design
  • Suitable for pressing citrus fruits and berries
  • Unique cone design
  • The filter often clogs

Buyers Choice

The popularity of this juicer is evidenced by more than 350 positive reviews on online equipment catalogs – and most of them are positive!

  • Country: China
  • Mechanism type: lever press
  • Juice container: yes
  • Warranty: n/a

Many people think that hand presses are designed exclusively for juicing small fruits, but this juicer breaks the stereotypes: its size allows you to process not only citrus fruits, but also pomegranates, and its reliable design ensures maximum liquid yield. The whole mechanism is cast from a single piece of aluminum alloy (the internal filter is also made of it, which prevents stones from getting into the juice), and the body is equipped with a convenient spout for draining, so the finished drink can be immediately poured into glasses. The manufacturer claims that it will take a maximum of three minutes “from the juicer to your table” to squeeze one fruit, which user reviews agree with. Of the minuses – the device cannot be washed in the dishwasher, so you will have to rinse the filter and the bowl manually.

Pros and cons

  • Suitable for large fruits
  • Easy use
  • Fast and efficient spin
  • Has an internal filter
  • Manual cleaning only

Top 6. SVR-01M “Farmer”

Universal press

Extracting juice from fruits, vegetables, berries, wax from honeycombs, milk from nuts, pressing meat and cheese – there is no task that this device could not handle!

  • Mechanism type: screw press
  • Juice container: no
  • Warranty: n/a

The Farmer model can hardly be called a “juicer”, although in the first place the manufacturer positions the device precisely as a press for manual cold pressing of fruit juices, including pomegranates and citrus fruits. The thing is that the dimensions of the main tank with a volume of 5 liters, a strong screw design and a capacity of up to 15 liters of juice per hour allow you to process any raw material, which makes this juicer an ideal purchase for a summer residence. There is no separate bowl for collecting liquid, but the stack plate has a special recess and is equipped with a chute for easy draining of the juice. Moreover, the set includes a special bag for collecting pulp, made of food-grade material. The disadvantages include the lack of polishing of the body, because of which it can scratch the surface of the table.

Pros and cons

  • multifunctional
  • Simple but reliable mechanism
  • High performance
  • Only suitable for industrial juicing

Best spin quality

Due to the powerful lever mechanism, this juicer press literally squeezes the juice from the fruit to the last drop!

  • Country: China
  • Mechanism type: lever press
  • Juice container: yes
  • Warranty: no

This juicer will take its place with honor not only in the home kitchen, but also on the bar counter for professional cocktail preparation: it is suitable for squeezing all kinds of citrus fruits, as well as pomegranates, which will significantly expand the arsenal of drinks available to you. The case and the entire mechanism as a whole are made of reliable stainless steel, so that with careful handling the device will last for many years, and the base is equipped with rubberized legs so that the juicer does not slip on the table during operation. As for the design features, the increased distance between the press and the built-in filter container will allow you to adjust the lever clamp and squeeze juice from fruits of any size. Of the minuses, buyers highlight the lack of fixation at the handle – if handled carelessly, there is a risk of pinching fingers.

Pros and cons

  • For professional use
  • Suitable for citrus and pomegranates
  • Reliable manufacturing material
  • Lack of lever lock

Reliable mechanism

The old and proven manual design of this juicer minimizes the chance of breakage, making it the best choice for long term use.

  • Country: China
  • Mechanism type: lever press
  • Juice container: no
  • Warranty: 1 year

What could be more convenient and easier to use than a lever mechanism? This compact metal juicer-press is ideal for juicing citrus fruits, thanks to the design of several separate bowls. Yellow is suitable for cut lemon slices, and green is for whole limes – just load the fruits into the compartments, and then press the lever with all your might, by analogy with a garlic press. Special holes in the cups prevent small stones from getting into the cup, so you get clean, expressed juice at the end. Users highly appreciate the ease of use and high-quality thick metal of the levers and bowls, but note that this juicer is no longer suitable for larger citrus fruits.

Pros and cons

  • Simple and reliable design
  • High quality workmanship material
  • Quality spin
  • Bright design
  • Only suitable for limes and lemons

The best ratio of price and quality

You get a great cone press for juicing citrus fruits – and this is a really good deal!

  • Country: Turkey
  • Movement type: conical
  • Juice container: yes
  • Warranty: 2 years

This mechanical juicer is ideal for making fresh juices from citrus fruits or pomegranates at home. Firstly, it is equipped with two nozzles designed for large and small fruits, so oranges, tangerines and lemons will not be a problem for her. Secondly, the press is very easy to use: just cut the fruit and turn it through the cone – the built-in juice container will prevent the liquid from splashing, and then you can conveniently pour the drink into a glass from it. There is no need to sharpen the cones, which greatly simplifies the maintenance of the device. Users praise the juicer for its high quality materials, ease of storage (you can hide the nozzles inside the bowl) and extraction efficiency, but note that sometimes the bones pass through the sieve.

Pros and cons

  • Two functional attachments
  • Easy to clean
  • Compact storage
  • The filter passes bones and pulp into the liquid

Топ-2. CAN CAN 0103

Increased wear resistance

The manufacturer claims that the hand press mechanism can withstand a pressure of 90 kg – such a juicer will definitely last for many years even with intensive use!

  • Country: Turkey
  • Mechanism type: lever press
  • Juice container: yes
  • Warranty: n/a

The brand positions this juicer as a press for the professional, but that doesn’t mean its impressive functionality can’t be used at home. First of all, I am pleased with the convenient rack mechanism, which does not require much effort when squeezing juice from pomegranates, and even a child can handle citrus fruits! For the quality and purity of drinks, a filter of a special shape is responsible, which retains the pulp and bones. Maintenance of the device also does not require a lot of time, because the filter, bowl and drip catcher can be easily disassembled for cleaning, and it is enough to wipe the lever with a damp cloth. The declared productivity is also pleasantly impressive, because it is 50 kg of processed raw materials per hour. Of the minuses – the small capacity of the built-in bowl for collecting juice, so it is recommended to use your own.

Pros and cons

  • High performance
  • Easy spin
  • Convenient to wash
  • Small juice container

Top 1. Maskot M-ST

The best professional juicer

Sophisticated mechanism, high quality materials and a wide variety of fruits and vegetables that can be processed in this juicer have made it a leader among professional bar equipment.

  • Country: Turkey
  • Mechanism type: screw press
  • Juice container: yes
  • Warranty: 2 years

The manufacturer claims that the mechanical juicer-press of the M-ST series is the “golden mean” among appliances, because it is suitable for both home use and industrial use in a bar. The filter, bowl and drip tray are made of high-quality stainless steel without the addition of aluminum and plastic, which not only has a positive effect on the wear resistance of parts (they are not subject to oxidation), but also on safety – the materials are not toxic to health. Due to the rack and pinion mechanism, less pressure is required to push the lever, so that squeezing juice even from a pomegranate will not require much effort. The body of the juicer is very stable and firmly fixed on the table due to its weight (4.3 kg) and the presence of rubberized legs, but it takes up a lot of space – the latter can be attributed to the minuses.

Pros and cons

  • Durability and reliability of the design
  • Suitable for citrus and pomegranates
  • Professional spin quality
  • oversized
