It is nice to have a juicer at home in case we manage to grow a little crop of vegetables or pick a bushel of fruit. A basic juicer can handle small-scale needs fairly well. But they can struggle once faced with large quantities or unusual ingredients.
Commercial juicers are much tougher, versatile and able to produce great juice with ease. Some are little more than heavy-duty versions of what we are used to, which can be great for those growing their own produce at home.
Then there are those that create juice on a wider scale for communal areas, canteens or for business ventures. Below is a series of commercial juicers of different styles to show you what is available. They have their own pros and cons but are still great choices for their area of juicing.
Best Commercial Cold Pressed Juicers, Reviews
#1 Hamilton Beach 932 Commercial Citrus Juicer
The first product that I want to highlight here is one that looks better suited to the home than any sort of high-end commercial venture. However, looks can be deceiving and there are lots of features here that show that you can get more juice out of this machine than your more basic at-home juicer.
The handle and mechanism on the arm mean that you can exert 2000lbs of pressure onto the fruit to get as much as possible from each item. The juice is collected in the swing-out cup and passes through a removable strainer or funnel to get the best possible produce. There are even grip feet so the machine doesn’t slip on the counter as you juice.
The majority of the time, this little machine exceeds expectations with its process and results but there are a couple of features that users would change if they could. For example, one of the plus points here is the use of the acid-resistant coating on the exterior of the machine. But, this doesn’t appear to be present in the internal cone. So, is this purely for aesthetic reasons rather than practical ones? I ask because the cone will deteriorate with time. There are also those that say that the pointy handle isn’t that comfortable when exerting that much pressure repeatedly.
- The pressure exerted on the fruit
- The user-friendly design
- A space-saving at-home option
- The design of the handle
- The coating in the cone
#2 Kuvings CS600 Whole Slow Juicer
This is another model that looks more at home in a residential kitchen than a commercial or industrial setting. While the one above has a more “space-age” look that was its downfall when it came to user comfort, this one is more familiar and looks like a lot of standard juicers and blenders. Therefore, this one could be more appealing to those that want to up their output and the quality of juice produces and upgrade from a less commercial juicer.
One of the selling points here is that this is a low-speed juicer that uses a slow, steady process to work produce into a quality juice. This process also means that there is the potential to use this for making other food like baby food, purees, and sorbet. This diversification may add more value to the machine in the long-run so it doesn’t just sit in your kitchen gathering dust between juicing sessions.
A problem here is that despite promoting their wide chute – which is 88mm – there are still users that say it is too narrow for their needs. They want to drop whole fruits and vegetables in there are decrease preparation times. Others point out that there is a lot of plastic here on a machine that isn’t the cheapest out there. They expected something a bit more robust for the money paid. That said, there is still a feeling of quality in the process and the construction means that it is easy to assemble and clean. The rotating cleaning brush is a big help there.
- A low-speed process for a great result
- Able to create a range of different products
- Some great cleaning tools
- The amount of plastic
- The narrow chute
#3 VEVOR 110V Electric Orange Juicer Commercial Squeezer
Next up, I want to look at something that has much more of a commercial appeal for communal settings. This model should be ideal for areas such as break rooms or canteen areas within office blocks or other businesses. The idea is that it will sit out on the counter and produce large quantities of juice for thirsty employees on their break.
One of the standout features here is the automatic feeding system for the fruit, which promises a rate of 22-30 oranges a minute. All you need to do is place the fruit in the basket at the top and the machine will do the rest to create a tank of juice. Customers can then take what they need when they want. This certainly makes things easier for any staff member as they won’t have to keep watch over the machine as much.
Unfortunately, this is a machine that users either seem to love or hate. Those that are less impressed with the design cite the construction of the stainless steel case around the mechanisms. There have been complaints about juice squirting out and it being difficult to clean – despite the promise that this is an easy-clean machine.
Be aware that when you opt for a machine such as this, you do need to have enough space to make it worthwhile. If you can put in the time and effort to keep this running smoothly and to clean it up, you can still get a lot of juice via this effective process.
- Sits out on communal counter spaces with ease
- The automatic feeding system
- The amount of juice created
- Some issues with the cleanliness of the machine
- The stainless steel case isn’t the best
#4 SUNCOO Commercial Orange Juicer Machine
When we look at this next option from SunCoo, we get a bit of a sense of deja vu because it looks pretty much identical to the one above. I don’t know if either brand can lay claim to the design of if they both borrowed some of the features and mechanisms from somewhere else.
What I can say is that this model has a lot more positive reviews and doesn’t seem to have the same issues with the leaks and the construction of that stainless steel casing. In fact, there is an added bonus here that the stainless steel case has a built-in safety switch.
The machine won’t operate until is it full assemble and safe to do so. It isn’t any faster in its feed-rate as it promises to handle 20-30 oranges in a minute. This suggests that the important, internal parts might be the same. You might be looking at a machine that has the same process, a better structure, and a slightly lower price if you are lucky.
This doesn’t mean that it is much easier to clean, however. There are some complaints about pieces of fruit getting caught in the mechanisms and the odd jam. Yet, most are satisfied.
- A more robust and reliable construction
- The safety switch
- The same automatic feeding system
- Cleaning it out
- Fruit occasionally getting jammed in the feeding system
#5 Tribest GS-P502 Greenstar Pro Commercial Cold Press
This juicer isn’t going to look as nice on a counter at home or in an office break room. Instead, they offer a tougher build and strong process that should get the best out of the produce used.
This juicer has a lot of praise from users because of the results achieved. It is an effective system with a 110rpm cold press system that works on a range of different fruits and vegetables. Users like the way that it really compresses all the fruit down into a dry pulp with minimal waste for a highly efficient process. There is also the bonus that it comes with lots of cleaning brushes and scraping tools for maintenance. It might take a few goes to figure out the best cleaning method but the tools do work.
The downside here is that because it is an industrial model, there is no getting around the ugly look. Those working in a commercial setting to bottle produce won’t really care that this looks a bit rough around the edges. But, it isn’t going to look that great in a kitchen or communal space like the products above.
- A cold press system with great results
- Very little wasted fruit
- Some helpful cleaning tools
- The industrial look
- Heavy stainless steel throughout
#6 Samson Super Juicer – Model SB0850
The last product is another one that doesn’t have the greatest look but does promise to make up for that with the juicing process. First of all, it is important to note that this is a wheatgrass juicer. The mechanism and process involved are great for this type of juice extraction and it is great to see something dedicated to this industry.
This juicer can handle large quantities of raw materials and has a continuous pulp extraction process to ensure that it doesn’t get jammed up. Many users are impressed with the clean, reliable system and you should expect to get around 5oz of juice per minute. Another benefit here is that while this product is on the heavy-duty side, with surgical-grade stainless steel, it is clean and easy to disassemble as needed.
At the time of writing this review, there was nothing but 5-star praise for this machine on Amazon.com. It seems that those that understand the purpose and potential of the machine can get along well with the process.
This may be a bit of a niche product but you can be sure that it can handle wheatgrass with much greater ease than a run-of-the-mill juicer. Industrial, slow processors like this are the best option for long-term wheatgrass juice production.
- a dedicated product for one ingredient
- surgical-grade stainless steel parts
- continuous pulp extraction for a reliable process
- too niche for many people
- another industrial design that doesn’t look that great
