Looking to purchase the Best Juicer for Carrots and Beetroot? This guide has the information you need to choose the right juicer based on your performance requirements and also your budget.
There are a number of different types of juicers for carrot and beetroot. Of each type, there are a number of different models. The differences between the types of juicers tend to be more significant compared to the differences between different models of the same type of juicer.
When deciding what juicer to get, you do need to consider a wide variety of processes such as value, versatility, how easy (or not) the juicer is to use, food preparation setup, and durability.
The two main types of juicers are centrifugal juicers and slow juicers. Centrifugal juicers are faster at producing juice. There is a wide variety of slow juicers such as horizontal masticating, vertical masticating, twin gear, champion, hydraulic press, and manual juicers.
Centrifugal juicers work by having juice enter a vertical tube at the top of the juicer, the feeding chute, where the juice then falls or is pushed, onto a disc that rotates very quickly – this is called the filter basket. That basket includes a center that is flat and a perimeter that is curved. Here the produce is cut, chopped, and/or sliced into small pieces.
The perimeter has holes for liquid to splash out of onto the filter bowl where juice then exists – the juice outlet.
Parts of the produce that are not turned to juice are called the pulp. Since the disc is rotating quickly, pulp moves upwards and is redirected from the top of the juice cover into a container. So, just so we’re clear – a centrifugal juicer has the following parts; a food pusher, juicer cover, filter basket, filter bowl, motor base, juice container, and pulp container.
There are a number of benefits of centrifugal juicers. They tend to be easier to assemble and it is easy for food preparation since most products can be inserted as a whole. Centrifugal juicers juice very quickly and have powerful motors. They also tend to weigh less compared to a slow juicer and are affordable with many available for less than $100.
There are downsides to a centrifugal juicer. They tend not to perform as well are juicing leafy greens, which is a popular use case these days. Similarly, they cannot be used for turning wheatgrass into juice. Because the filter baskets cleaning time may be greater than other types of juicers. Centrifugal juicers have limited versatility – they tend not to have many add-ons such as food homogenizers.
You also need to check the build quality of centrifugal juicers since many are made of plastic and have low-quality parts, compared with a slow juicer. This may be why warranties are shorter duration compared with slow juicers. They are also noisy and the quality of juice is lower compared with juice produced with a slow juicer.
There are a lot of varieties of slow juicers. Let’s start with horizontal masticating slow juicers.
Horizontal masticating type is the most affordable slow juicer, usually available for $300 or less, and tends to be quiet in operation. They tend to be built with parts that are of high quality. Warranties tend to be in excess of 10 years. Horizontal masticating juicers are quick and easy to clean, are the most versatile of all juicers, and are able to juice wheatgrass.
However horizontal masticating juicers tend to take a long time to process and preparation requirements tend to be strict.
Vertical masticating slow juicers are less strict regarding the requirements for food preparation and can also juice wheatgrass. They tend to juice faster compared with the horizontal masticating juicers. They are the easiest slow juicers to use and take less countertop space. Vertical masticating juicers are quiet, feature high-quality build design and routinely have warranties in excel of 10 years.
Compared to horizontal, the vertical masticating slow juicers are harder to clean and assemble, are more expensive and less versatile.
Twin gear juicers are more efficient at juicing and other types of juicers and this is especially true for leafy greens.
The twin gear slow juicers are considerably difficult to assemble is difficult to clean, built with complex parts, take a long time to juice and have strict food prep requirements. They are heavy and not easily portable.
Champion juicers are a bit of a mix between centrifugal and masticating juicers. They have very high yields when juicing carrots and other root vegetables and are built from high-quality materials. Low yields are juiced for soft foods such as wheatgrass.
Hydraulic press juicers are very expensive, up to $2,500 or more but do have advantages. One model can juice without electricity whilst another model may generate the greatest yield of any other juicer model.
Manual juicers such as hand-crank or hand presses are very limited in the amount of juice they are able to produce and are not able to juice most vegetables.
Best Juicer for Carrots and Beets 2020 Reviewed
Now, we look at what we think are the best carrot and beetroot juicer machine in 2020.
#1. Breville Juice Fountain Cold XL – Brushed Stainless Steel Centrifugal Juicer
An interesting feature of the Breville Cold XL is the cold spin technology which lets the juice flow up through the cutting discs, made of stainless steel, which is surrounded by mesh filters, built-in Italy, to keep temperature increases to a minimum.
The Cold XL features a redesigned feed which is 3.5 inches wide. This extra-large chute makes it possible to juice the whole plant or fruit without manually cutting first – a nice touch which can reduce preparation time.
It is important to note that the Cold XL is not a cold press juicer although it is designed for heat transfer of fewer than 1.8 degrees Fahrenheit.
There are a number of settings on the Cold XL including a quiet mode for light juicing which the manufacturer claims to reduce noise by the mechanical parts of the juicer by up to 40% and a fast mode which juices five times faster than an equivalent cold press model.
OK, let’s get technical; the Breville Juice Fountain Cold XL has a capacity to juice up to 70 fl oz. whilst sealed which is about 9 cups and should be enough juice for an individual to last three days or enough for a family’s daily juice needs.
This juicer is constructed from titanium for the cutting disc, which is reinforced, stainless steel and the filter is Italian designed Micro Mesh.
Although the Breville Fountain includes Italian designed parts it is actually engineered and overall designed in Australia and component parts are manufactured in a number of localities before being assembled in China.

#4. Tribest Slowstar Vertical Slow Juicer (and Mincer) – Best Value Masticating Juice Extractor
A special feature of the Tribest Slowstar is the Mincing Attachment which is included with the model to create dishes such as pastes, dips, jars of butter, sorbets, and sauces. The attachment makes this machine more versatile as it turns the Slowstar into a food homogenizer.
The Slowstar features a low motor speed for cold press juice extraction which, unlike centrifugal motors, has minimal oxidation. This means that essential vitamins, nutrients, and live enzymes are preserved, which a lot of health-conscious consumers enjoy.
A well-designed feature of the Tribest Slow Juicer is the Duo-Blade Auger which is made of Ultem and could be up to 8 times more strong compared to plastic versions.
Tribet claims their Vertical Slow Juicer provides 3 times more torque compared – 30 ft. lbs. – compared with competing masticating juicers and that this results in less jamming action. In fact, Tribest claims the crushing force produced by this juicer is 2 to 4 times greater than rival slow juicers. This higher torque also helps to reduce stresses on the juicer.
I nice little part is the juice cap which controls the flow of juice whilst you juice so you can prevent spillage and also switch juice containers in the middle of the process. The juice cap is easy to clean as it is detachable. You can also close the cap and add water into the Duo-Blade Auger to pre-rinse when cleaning up.
What I think sets the Slowstar apart from other masticating juicers is the 10-year warranty which is included with purchase and is industry-leading in its coverage.
The Slowstar is manufactured with stain-resistant and BPA-free parts which may be stronger than plastic parts found in rival juicers.

Ok, so that’s our round-up of an interesting selection of juicers for carrots and beets on the market in 2020.
We’ve seen that there are a number of different types of juicers and of each type, there are a number of different models.
Centrifugal juicers tend to be easier to assemble and easier for food preparation as most products can be inserted whole. They are quick use powerful motors, are affordable, and weigh less than slow juicers.
Compared to slow juicers they do not perform as well at juicing leafy greens. They also have limited versatility. Many centrifugal juicers are made of plastic so it is important to consider build quality. The warranties of centrifugal juicers tend to be very short, they are noisy and the quality of juice is not as good compared to slow juicers.
There is a wide variety of slow juicer types such as horizontal masticating, vertical masticating, twin gear, champion, hydraulic press, and manual juicers.
Horizontal masticators are the most affordable slow juicer and tend to operate quietly. They are built with high-quality parts. Warranties for this and other types of slow juicers are routinely in excess of 10 years. They tend to take a long time to process and have strict food preparation requirements.
Vertical masticating juicers have less strict prep requirements and can process wheatgrass. The juice faster than horizontal masticating juicers. Vertical masticating juicers are easy to use and take up limited worktop space.
Twin gear juicers are more efficient at juicing but take a long time to juice and a not portable.
Champion juicers have high yields for hard produce and low yields for soft produce.
Hydraulic press juicers are very expensive but can get the greatest possible juicing yields.
Manual juicers such as hand presses produce very limited amounts of juice.
The products we reviewed include the Breville Juice Fountain Cold XL, which we think is a brushed stainless steel centrifugal juicer. The Breville Cold XL features cold spin technology which keeps temperature increases to a minimum. Whilst not being a cold press juicer, heat transfer is less than 1.8 degrees Fahrenheit.
The Cuisinart CJE-1000 Die-Cast Juice Extractor is, in our opinion the best juicer for families, featuring 5-speed settings, a large feeding chute, built from die-cast stainless steel that runs quietly.
Our pick for best compact juicer goes to the Breville BJE200XL Compact Juice Fountain with Safety Locking Arm. The built-in Froth Separator is useful but the warranty period of only 1 year has us asking questions.
We think the best value masticating juice extractor is the Tribest Slowstar vertical Slow Juicer and Mincer. The special feature of this model is the mincing attachment for the creation of pastes, dips, sorbets, and sauces – effectively doubling up this equipment like a food homogenizer.
A juicer with an eye-dropping 15-year warranty, the Omega NC800HDS Juicer Extractor and Nutrition Center, is another masticating style juicer. Omega claims their juicer extracts the maximum amount of vitamins and nutrients from the minimum amount of vegetables, greens, fruits, and wheatgrass. The built-in nutrition center means you can grind coffee beans and spices and mince garlic and herbs.
We think the best portable masticating juicer is the Tribest GSE-5050 Greenstar Elite Cold Press. The Greenstar uses exclusive Jumbo Twin Gear Press Technology which has independent laboratory reports claiming this results in a larger amount of mineral extraction compared to other juicers on the market.
The Tribest GSE-5050 Greenstar Elite Cold Press uses the twin gears, as well as pocket recesses and gear teeth base to form a complete mastication system.
