You can say that there are some unspoken rules that everyone either consciously or subconsciously follows. It doesn’t have to be wholly true or correct. For example, ‘whatever it is, if it’s expensive, it’s good.’ And, it happens to fit perfectly in our review today. The juicers that I am reviewing this time are some of the best produced in their category. They are powerful, sleek, and astronomically expensive.
Yes, I am talking about Triturating juicers or more popularly known as Twin Gear juicers. The thing that sets them apart from centrifugal, masticating and manual juicers is that the only thing they leave behind is a decapitated peel.
These juicers can extract up to 90-95% of the juice from the fruits and vegetables alike. The speed and RPMs they sport are neither as fast as centrifugal or as slow as masticating juicers.
Super Angel 5500
The Rolls Royce of juicers is here. The best of the triturating juicers available in the market.
Green Power KPE1304
Not cheap at all if you just check it up, but definitely a lot less when compared to those monsters.
Not the cheapest, not the most expensive. Just right in the middle. Have everything that a juice lover needs.

Super Angel 5500-Best Overall
If I start with its price, I’m pretty sure many of the viewers will simply leave the sight. These juicers are obscenely high priced so if you come from money or are planning to sell a kidney or some other organ, this is the best choice juicer you can have.
The thing that’s truly flabbergasting about Super Angel 5500 is the warranty the company has given. A full decade. That shows the confidence the company has in its product. It is the same as Vitamix. They are also one of the best of their kind and the manufacturers also define their faith in their product through the long warranty limit.
It is also sturdy as a rock due to the material used to build it. Our Best overall is made of stainless steel that gives it a cool and sleek exterior that will literally shine every time you open your kitchen lights. Lastly comes the motor that has created all the hype. 3 HP fellas. That is the amount of power this juicer is holding. So, no matter what you throw at it, it will pulverize it in no time.
- Tough body
- Easy to clean
- 10-year warranty
- 3 HP motor
- Heavyweight and can work efficiently even after continuous juicing
- Can get messy with soft ingredients
Green Power KPE1304-Best Budget
This one is probably the cheapest twin gear juicer you can find on the internet. The low speed of 160 RPMs is just right for sucking out the freshest of the juices you could ever get. The 10-year warranty of the motor and 5 years on the operational parts is also more than you can ask for such a price for a twin gear juicer.
Green Power KPE1304 earned the Best Budget title because not only the juice can stay fresh for more than 72 hours. Reason being the fact that it is Magnetic and Bio-Cermmic technology that I don’t think you can find in any other juicer. Plus, the heat that people might expect from such a heavyweight juicers is effectively non-existent.
The quietness is also one of its fortes. The reading barely crosses 60 dB, which for your information is not any louder than a normal conversation. Until or unless you can’t hear properly or have little lucifers for kids, you will understand it.
- Low on noise
- Easy to clean
- Comes with an instruction manual and a DVD
- Long warranty even on operational parts
- Hard to assemble
Tribest GSE-5010 Greenstar Elite Masticating Juicer
The Editor’s Choice is one of the hardest to come up with. Only after a rigorous sorting am I able to select the one that suits this title. Tribest GSE-5010 is the one taking the trophy home this time. Tribest has dabbled in more than just twin gear juicers. Their masticating and centrifugal juicers are one of the best as well.
GSE 5010 is more than just a juicer. It can make other mouth-watering recipes like sorbets, nut butters, pate, etc. The purpose of masticating juicers is to mimic the juicing done by hand. But the steel gears in this juicer does more than just that. It mimics the workings of human teeth and how they process the food by slicing and grinding and shredding.
Its specs are more or less the same as the other triturating juicers. Only a few things stand out that make this juicer unique, of which the 12-year warranty is the most likable for me.
- Auto pulp ejection
- Easy to carry because of a sure grip handle
- Easy to assemble
- Three-step juicing gears
- Hard to clean
Super Angel Pro Stainless Steel Juicer
One of the first companies to use stainless steel in their twin gear juicers, Super Angel Pro is worth every single penny. It is designed to perform like a tank without any complications that a juicer might come with it. The slow speed keeps the nutrients in the juice safe.
The food chute is also bigger than the typical chutes. Its size exceeds them by a large margin that in turn increases the juicing speed. After that, the assembling and disassembling is also an easy task to carry out. Because it is made up of only 4 parts, it doesn’t take a genius to put it together.
Furthermore, this unit is dishwasher safe and doesn’t let any food stick to it easily. The juice produced from super angel pro can exceed more than 3 times that of an average juicer, making it one of the most demanded juicers in the market.
- Shiny exterior
- Durable and robust body
- Can make baby food, peanut butter, and tofu.
- 3-year warranty
- Heavy in weight and might be a problem for people to move it in the kitchen
Tribest GS-1000 Greenstar Original Twin Gear

Simply built with no complications and easy to operate and clean. The cleaning brush makes cleaning a lot easier. And, with amazing and helpful customer service you can ring them up for up to five years starting from the day you buy the juicer.
Lastly, the steel gears wring out the freshest of juices without any problems. They are made from food-grade material so you don’t need to worry about anything unhealthy getting in your juices.

- Juice gets a lot foamy and the juicer requires personal effort to get the juicing done properly
Other Juicer Brands That You Might Like
The thing about Twin gear juicers is that not many can make them. It requires more than just resources and planning because not many can afford these. If someone wants a good juicer, a high end masticating juicer can do the job, just not a sublime one like a triturating juicer.
So, if you mistakenly tumbled in here expecting a masticating or centrifugal juicer; don’t worry. I got you covered. Down below are the brands that dominate the juicer market and have produced more than one masterpiece. I won’t go deep into the details so you can pick anyone that catches your interest.
Black+Decker: I understand if you almost had a stroke after checking out the prices of the triturating juicers above. So, to even out the shock, I present to you, Black+Decker. The thing that distinguishes Black+Decker from other brands is that it produces one of the cheapest kitchen appliances. They always keep the quality way above what you may expect from the price and satisfies all of the needs that one may have. One such exemplar is down below.
- Black+Decker CJ650W: Small in size, price, and maintenance. This small juicer requires little power and can do almost all the same things as the other big shots in the juicer market. The price being a big factor sitting at barely 1 and a half dozen dollars, it can be a perfect gift for people close to you on any occasion or to someone who just started juicing and is unwilling to spend much.
You can also fit it in any corner of your kitchen unlike other bulky and huge units you will see in this article.
Hurom: Hailed as the World’s No.1 juicer in 2017, Hurom has come a long way. Not just that, just in the year 2010 they won Gold Award at the International Exhibition of Inventions of Geneva in Switzerland, 2010 Most Innovative Kitchen Appliance Award at the Invention & New Product Exposition (INPEX) in the United States, and 2010 Gold Medal at iENA Nuremberg in Germany. But all that became possible because of all the hard work and time invested in its product’s designs and quality. Here is one of their excellent products.
- Hurom HZ Slow Juicer: First of all, the accessories that this juicer comes with makes it an amazing juicer. Each and every one of them adds to its versatility and performance. The slow squeeze technology makes sure that the pulp comes out bone dry without a hint of any moisture.
Secondly, the manufacturers paid extra care to the safety and comfort of their customers by removing any sharp ends that may lead to injuries and installing an AC motor that makes almost no noise.
Aicook: If you want to stay in a market that is filled with tons of capable competitors, first-hand info is the only thing that is going to keep you even with them. Constant improvement and new innovative products are some of the things to keep your customers loyal to you and that’s exactly what Aicook did. Here’s an example of it.
- Aicook Slow Masticating Juicer: One thing that is abhorred by every juice enthusiast is the mess a juicer leaves after it’s done with the juicing. It’s not like it is some huge effort to clean it but it’s still annoying to wipe it every time. Aicook Slow Masticating Juicer luckily comes with an anti-drip function. Then, there is this big three-inch wide chute that lets you insert larger ingredients without prepping them much.
After that, there are the touch keys of which one lets you reverse the auger to assist you to pull out if anything gets stuck. Plus, the sleek design is an added bonus.
Omega: Started in 1985, the company has revolutionized the kitchen world since then. Robert Leo started this company with a vision in mind which he saw taking shape in the time span of more than 3 decades. It is one of the very few companies that have produced renowned and quality triturating juicers along with centrifugal and masticating juicers. Here is one of the most popular juicers in the market.
- Omega J8006HDS: It probably won’t be wrong to say that Omega J8006HDS has the longest warranty time amongst all the juicers. 15 years ladies and gentlemen. That long. This juicer will last long enough to be passed on as a family heirloom. But what truly makes this juicer worth the bucks is the adjustable end cap. You can choose between 5 settings to decide for juice output and extraction.
Next, the double stage juicing system wrings out the maximum amount of juice possible with the help of a powerful motor.
Before I begin, I just want to let you guys know that twin gear juicers are not for noobs or those who don’t treat a glass of juice like a drug. They are meant for the hardcore juice lovers who know their way around juicers. Or, if you are health and beauty conscious. They are easy to operate and assemble, but not everyone can afford these kitchen Hulks. And that will be our first tip in our guide. Budget.
As I have already mentioned above, these juicers are not for those that have a light wallet and bank account. They can cost up to 1000 dollars or more. Not an amount to be squandered easily. They are hard to make too and due to less demand, it is hard to find them in the market. Especially if you want to get one that suits you perfectly.
But trust me when I say they are worth every single penny. They last way more than the warranty time the company gives to their customers. It will be you wanting to get rid of them after years of usage.
With that comes up our second factor. Warranty.
Juicers like these come with long warranty times as you may have noticed, with the least being 3 years. They are made up of strong and food-grade materials that are meant to last long. The longer the warranty the more confident a company is of their product. Some are tagged with 10 years and in some rare cases, 12 years too.
Juicers with such warranty periods are capable of lasting way more than that if taken care of and used properly instead of labored for hours on end.
Thereupon, to avoid those exploiting customers, the manufacturers removed operational parts from it and created a different warranty for them. Just keep an eye on them too.
One thing that comes after better juices on the good list of twin gear juicers is that they are exceedingly easy to clean. The reason is that they are dishwasher safe and are easy to assemble and vice versa.
But, not all of them come with this perk. Some can be a menace after a round of juicing and you have to clean them immediately after you are done with them.
You guys are in luck because twin gear juicers are one of the quietest juicers. They stand second in line after masticating juicers which I will explain later. Because the speed is so slow, they don’t make noise high enough to disturb anyone, be it a group of people talking or someone talking on a phone.
Some even have noise dampeners in them which further reduces the noise level. All in all, you don’t have to worry about that.
Types Of Juicers
Starting with the fastest, Centrifugal comes at the top. They are among the cheap side of their counterparts and the loudest too. They can be considered as the “ Vespa” of the juicers. They are generally light in weight and are portable too in some cases. Their blades or reamers can go upto 15000 to 17000 RPMs, meaning they can prepare a juice within seconds.
The downside of these juicers is that they can cause oxidization because of the heat the friction creates at high speed. They are ideal for people who are tight on schedule and are fine with a little less nutrients.
After that are the masticating juicers. These juicers are the go-to product for those who have time and a little more cash to spend. You can add health-conscious people to that list too because the nutrients stay safe when they are juiced out. The low speed keeps the blade cold and friction-free. Plus, the produce is significantly more than the centrifugal juicers.
They don’t even make any noise and can juice a lot more stuff and more thoroughly. What’s more, is that the juice can be preserved for a long period of time because of all the preserved vitamins. The storage time can lead up to 24 to 36 hours without losing its healthy properties.
The only downside of this type of juicer is that it can’t be used commercially. Their slow speed doesn’t allow them.
I have written everything about the triturating juicers already so we are gonna skip that. So, at last, the manual juicers. They are the lightest and probably the cheapest. Light in weight yet strong and durable. They don’t even need any electricity to work and the only limit is your strength.
These juicers are made in a way that amplifies the force you exert while juicing. Meaning, you get twice the result with half the effort. The amplified force can reach up to thousands of pounds at times. I can’t think of many things that can survive that strong squeeze.
Finally, on to the FAQs.
Q: Is there a limit to the amount of juice I can drink in a time limit?
ANS: There isn’t a single way or method to tell you if it is or not. Different problems call for different solutions. I am in no position in guiding you through this because I’m not professional myself. There are a lot of juices with different concentrations and benefits. Some are light and can be consumed in large amounts with little problem, whereas some would be one sip too many.
And as Mr. Han in Karate kid said, ‘Too much of good stuff is bad stuff.’
Q: What if I don’t peel my fruits and veggies before throwing them in the juicer?
ANS: While it may work with fruits and vegetables like apples and cucumbers there are a lot of them that will probably ruin the juicer you so lovingly bought. A lot of the fruits and vegetables have tough outer skins that need a lot more than just a squeeze to get rid of. They can potentially destroy the reamer or blade. They are made for squeezing the juice out not shred anything.
As for oranges and the like, the peel will only make the juice undrinkable and your family and friends disgusted by your culinary skills. That would be the last thing, anyone, with a thousand-dollar juicer, wants, I presume.
Q: How much a twin gear juicer can take before it starts to heat up?
ANS: No matter how slow the gears move, the 3 HP motor will inevitably produce heat. So to prevent any mishaps, they are integrated with a cooling system that keeps the temperature low and the juice safe. Hence, if on the off chance it does get hot, that means you have gone way above the recommended time that was mentioned in the manual.
But, if it is some other juicer, three to four times at a time should be appropriate. Any more than that and the motor might crash sooner than it should have.
Q: Is it necessary to add water every time I juice?
ANS: Not really, no. If the fruit or vegetable that you are juicing has a high water level, you don’t need to. On the flip side, it may even make the flavor bland if you add a bit too much. As for those like coconut or leafy greens, you have to add water.
Q: Which juicer is the best?
ANS: This is one of the most asked questions that you will find on the internet. One thing you need to know is that there is no definite answer to this question. It solely depends on the user’s personal preference, needs, and tastes. There are different types of juicers for different purposes and each of them comes with various perks and advantages.
It also comes down to the personality and daily lifestyle of the buyer. Imagine waking up and trying to make enough juice for a giant family in a single serving juicer. Sure it’s fast, small, easy to handle, easy to clean, and doesn’t take much effort to use. But is it perfect for you? A big fat NO!
This juicer would have rocked for a single person living in a small apartment with an even smaller kitchen.
Q: Is a fast juicer better than a slow juicer?
ANS: Again, it depends on the person buying it. A morning person, with a packed schedule who can’t have a break and get them a decent healthy meal and have a full calendar, will consider a fast juicer a godsend.
On the other hand, someone who gives his/her health the highest priority can exercise patience if it means that the juicer will be a complete dose of nutrition.
Q: Do I have to clean the juicer after every use?
Ans: It’s not going to blow your juicer but, in the long run, the mesh or pulp separator can accumulate the juice that was not cleaned properly. This can lead to a blockage that hinders the smooth passage of juice. After a long time, the pressure it will create might cause the more weak parts to crack and the motor to burn.
Even if it’s not that severe, the smell that an uncleaned juicer emits is enough to raise the dead back. The rotting leftovers that were supposed to be disposed of can dry and stick to the walls of the housing and become harder to clean.
Q: Is there anything that I should avoid doing to my juicer?
ANS: There are a lot of things that should be avoided, but not everyone can relate to them. However, one fairly common thing is that people tend to think that cleaning their juicer in boiling water will help in cleaning better and quicker. That is absolutely off the mark and illogical.
The boiling water is enough to severely damage your juicer. That can lead to leakage because of damaged seals, make the parts deformed and unable to fit together correctly, and in some cases, rendering the juicer entirely useless. Some juicers come with sensors that make sure the juicer is fitted properly. Hot or boiling water can damage them too causing the problem stated earlier.
That will be all from me on the Twin Gear Triturating Juicers. It was not an easy task to find all these units and assemble them in a presentable manner. But all’s well that ends well, and that’s what happened. I enjoyed writing this review and sincerely hope that you do too. If there is anything I missed or have any suggestions in making it better, please let us know in the comment section.
Therefore, stay safe, healthy, and happy. Arrivederci!
