If you’re lucky enough to have an orange tree in your backyard, or just have an affinity for fresh-squeezed OJ, the smartest choice when it comes to electric citrus juicers is BLACK+DECKER 34oz Citrus Juicer.
It hits almost every mark that’s important for citrus juicers: It’s easy and comfortable to use, offers pulp control, has a self-contained pitcher for catching the juice, offers dual cones for oranges/grapefruits and lemons/limes, splits apart into multiple pieces for easy cleaning, is dishwasher safe, and offers efficient juicing. Plus, it’s only $18, which is actually less than our top pick for manual citrus presses for making cocktails.
Most electric citrus juicers work the same way, but of the eight we tested, none offered every single feature we considered to be important. The BLACK+DECKER comes the closest, along with Toastmaster’s 1109 Citrus Juicer. Unfortunately, a call to Spectrum Brands confirmed that the latter model, along with another Black & Decker unit we tested, has been discontinued. After 14 hours of research and testing and speaking to Lisa McManus, senior editor of equipment testing at Cook’s Illustrated, we can say our pick is deserving on its own merits and will make a good addition to most kitchens.
