Best Hurom Juicer Reviews 2019 – Top Picks & Guide
Juicers are notoriously hard for the average layperson to buy. The market is crowded with options ranging significantly in price, and while every single option is designed to do the same thing, they all seem to find radically different success rates at doing it.
The unfortunate fact of the matter is that there are a lot of bad juicers out there. What is more unfortunate is that a bad juicer is basically no better than no juicer at all.
Why? A bad juicer isn’t just going to rob pulp of its juice, it is also going to drain it of its nutrients.
Hurom is a company known for making really good juicers, but that doesn’t mean that all of their products are created equally either.
We don’t want you to get the wrong Hurom juicer.
That is why we have taken the time to do a deep dive look into the world of Hurom juicers. We have studied these products from every angle and created this guide detailing what we found.
If you want the best product that you can get, read on for our top 3 Hurom juicer picks!
List of our Top 3 Picks of 2019:

(Best for the Money)
3 Best Hurom Juicers – Reviews:
1. HUROM HZ Slow Juicer – Top Pick
The Hurom HZ features just about everything that you could want out of a juicer. Shoppers might first notice that it features a durable stainless steel casing that will both protect it from wear and tear, and compliment the look of a modern kitchen.
It also features elegant LED indicators that will allow you to adjust and control the settings and, an ingredient chute sizable enough for full fruits and vegetables.
It is also basically silent, which offers refreshing relief from the standard noise output that most people come to expect from juicers and blenders.
However, the best aspect of this juicer is probably its speed. The Hurom HZ Slow Juicer rotates at a speed of just 43 revolutions per minute to mimic the motion of squeezing juice out by hand.
As a result, you enjoy incredibly thorough results that leave the pulp of your ingredients bone dry.
The con? This unit is fairly expensive, which means it won’t be for buyers on a tighter budget. However, if you have the money, the Hurom HZ Slow Juicer is definitely one to consider.
2. Hurom H-AE Juicer – The Runner-Up
If you were not sold on the HZ Slow Juicer, you may find our runner-up, the Hurom H-AE to be more to your liking.
Much of what makes this juicer special is also found in the Hurom HZ. It is very thorough, it is easy to clean, it features an elegant design (though in this case, Hurom claims to have designed the juicer in the spirit of a supercar) and it also imitates the process of hand squeezing.
This unit is so similar to the HZ that it was almost hard to decide which should top the list. At the end of the day, the HZ Slow Juicer won out because we found an issue with this unit that we did not see in the last.
While the H-AE does indeed get a lot of yield from its ingredients, we found that the pulp is a little damper here than it was with the HZ Slow Juicer, which means that some juice is getting left on the table.
Other than that, it is a great juicer that most buyers would be very happy to have.
3. Hurom HH-SBB11 Juicer – Best for the Money
The Hurom HH-SBB11 earned itself a spot as our best for the money pick by being considerably more affordable than the last two options that we looked at, while still rivaling their quality.
There is a lot to like here. Though this unit does not quite capture the same “hand-squeezed” effect that the last two options managed to boast, it does operate at a very gradual and thorough pace in order to produce juices that are rich in flavor and nutrients.
It also features a self-cleaning mode, and it even includes a safety lock that ensures the machine will only activate if all the parts are fastened the way that they should be.
So, why didn’t this juicer land itself a spot in our top two? There are a couple of reasons. For one thing, we found that it struggles a lot with softer ingredients like kiwi. We also found that the juice is a little bit pulpier than the last two units, which some users may not care for.
These things aside, the HH-SBB11 will be an appealing, budget-friendly option for buyers that want Hurom quality without paying Hurom prices.
All three of the Hurom juicers that we have seen today are good in their own way. Great, right? But that also makes it harder to come to an ultimate decision.
If you are still struggling with which of these options you should take home, there is no shame in that.
In order to help makes sure that you get the juicer that is perfect for your family, we have put together a list of buying considerations that should help clarify any remaining questions that you might have.
Don’t Pay More Than You Need to:
Juicing is stigmatized as a luxury activity, which is a shame because truly everyone’s health can benefit from doing it.
While it is true that there is a degree of luxury to juicing, it does not have to be as inaccessible as many people tend to assume.
As you have already seen just from today’s reviews, the price of juicers can range pretty significantly, even within the same company.
While higher-end juicers are often going to come with a few more features, and may even perform a little better, you can still get plenty of quality without emptying your bank to get it.
Our best for the money pick is a prime example of a juicer that performs well and respects your budget.
Ease of Cleaning:
If you are going to be juicing every day (which you definitely should think about, by the way) you are going to realize pretty fast that cleaning out your juicer after every time is going to be something of a chore.
We are all busy, and no one wants to spend all morning cleaning out an appliance. Unfortunately, juicers are often fairly difficult to clean because, depending on the model that you get, there can be a lot of pieces and parts that each need individual attention.
However, it certainly does not have to be that way. Many manufacturers are optimizing their home use juicers to be as easy to clean as possible.
If you have an on the go lifestyle, this is definitely a feature that you are going to want to look out for.
How can you tell if a juicer has been optimized for an easy clean? Generally speaking, it will be mentioned proudly on the label!
Otherwise, you may need to do a little bit of digging by reading a handy review like this one.
Masticating VS. Centrifugal:
The two main types of juicers that you will see as you shop are categorized as either being masticating or centrifugal juicers.
Both options have their own set of pros and cons. Centrifugal juicers are usually a little bit cheaper, and a little bit more user-friendly than masticating juicers. While masticating juicers require that you finely chop your fruits and vegetables before tossing them in, with centrifugal juicers you can often toss intact ingredients into the feed chute.
However, masticating juicers are actually what many people who are extremely into juicing prefer.
Why? Because of the way that this type of juicer operates (slow rotations and lots of pressure, as opposed to the rapid rotations of the centrifugal juicer) it is usually able to extract more vitamins from the ingredients.
That said, there are many high-performing centrifugal juicers out there that can make juice just as well as the masticating alternative.
At the end of the day, a good unit of either orientation is going to help you see the improvements in your health that you are looking for.
The Vitamix 7500 Low-Profile is our top pick, with a great design and plenty of power to get any blend done. The Vitamix 59326 Professional Series 750 is our runner’s up, providing some extra features over the 7500, but not enough to justify the higher price for many people. The Vitamix E310 Explorian was the best value, being a bit smaller and a bit cheaper, making it perfect for people with single servings in mind. Vitamix 5300 is pretty bare-bones and relatively inexpensive, but we didn’t love how it looked. Finally, the Vitamix Explorian 65542 was a refurbished model, which means you’re taking a risk when you buy.
Hopefully, our reviews have helped you understand what you’re looking for in a Vitamix blender. While it’s not always easy to shop online, we believe that well-informed consumers make great buys, and hope that you can now find the model of your dreams.
