This is a review to help you choose the best grapefruit juicer for 2016. We cover two juicers here, one centrifugal, the other masticating. While juicing offers a myriad of health benefits, there are a variety of reasons to drink grapefruit juice in particular. It is loaded with vitamin C, which supports and strengthens the immune system. Grapefruit juice also has been shown to boost metabolism, keeping your weight under control. It can reduce the occurrence of kidney stones, help to fight gum disease, and even protects the body from cancer. With all of these things in mind, it is hard to see why someone wouldn’t want to drink grapefruit juice.
However, you can’t get just any juicer for fresh-squeezed grapefruit juice. There are two prerequisites you will want to consider before deciding to go out and make a purchase.
- When you are choosing a grapefruit juicer, you should look for a citrus juicer that is large enough to accommodate the size of a grapefruit.
- You also want to purchase a juicer that is easy to use. You don’t want to be struggling to operate the juicer while you have this large fruit in your hand – it can become unwieldy.
Bearing that in mind, let’s take a look at the following two grapefruit juicers:
The Best Juicers Reviewed Pick For The Best Grapefruit Juicer For 2016 – Masticating Juicer
The Eurolox Citrus Juicer is a one size fits all citrus slow juicer. The juicing cone is large enough to juice just about any citrus fruit, and it is designed to produce the most juice that can be extracted. The juiccer is easy on the hands. The designers of the Eurolux had comfort in mind when they built this machine – the handle you need to use is handle, the grip on it is soft, reducing the amount of pressure you might feel on your hand.
There is a filter integrated in to the juicer that skims out pits and seeds so that the juice extraction process will be cleaner. Suction cups are built in to the bottom to secure the base of the juicer and prevent any table surface from being damaged. Using this cold press juicer is easy, just push the handle down and it will start automatically.
The juice pours directly in a drinking glass, which is convenient. The motor is surprisingly quiet considering how powerful it is 160 W. All parts are detachable, so it is easy to clean and the juicing cone and filter are removable too. The filter is large enough for repetitive use without having to stop and empty it.
Although the motor is powerful, it does start out slowly, making juicing with it a little inconvenient. Other than that, the Eurolux Citrus Juicer is a good deal. It is large enough and easy to use, so you can check both of these items off your checklist of things to consider when buying a grapefruit juicer. It is a good choice for both beginners and regular, experienced juicers. We give this one 4 and a half stars.

The Best Juicers Reviewed Pick For The Best Grapefruit Juicer For 2016 – Centrifugal Juicer
Although it has “lemonade stand” in it’s name, this Proctor-Silex is also ideal for grapefruit. That’s because the two reamers that come with it have nested storage for large and small citrus fruit. The pitcher is also large enough to accommodate the juice that would be extracted from a grapefruit – thirty four ounces. The pitcher is large enough to serve a few people at once, but this juicer also comes with a gallon pitcher you can use to store juice after you are done using this appliance.
All of the parts are dishwasher safe, lending to convenience. It is also easy to use in general – the pitcher detaches, and it is easy to assemble. To operate it, cut the grapefruit in half and press it down on the reamer. There is adjustable pulp control, so you can make juice ranging from pulp free to very pulpy, or anywhere in between. The juicer has a four ounce capacity.
The appliance is small in stature and is easily portable. It doesn’t have to have a permanent place on your counter top, but if you choose to leave it there, the juicer will look nice in your kitchen. All of the parts of the citrus juicer are dishwasher safe, and you can even stick the pitcher in the refrigerator or the freezer. The juicer is BPA free so you can juice freely.
Like many other centrifugal juicers, this juicer can be rather loud, so take that into consideration before you make a purchase. Also, regular juicers or those planning to juice continuously might want to look elsewhere. This juicer is not sturdy enough to handle continuous or daily use. That being said, this juicer is easy to use and large enough to accommodate for the size of a grapefruit, making it a fine choice for beginners and people looking for value. We give this juicer four stars.
- Adjustable Pulp Control
- Use the Pitcher in the fridge or freezer
- BPA free juicer
- Looks nice on the counter
- Serve several people at once
- Small learning curve
- May be too loud for some people

Final Thoughts on the Best Grapefruit Juicer for 2016
These two juicers both serve the same purpose, but they approach juicing differently. The first juicer is a slow juicer juicer – it presses the juice out of the grapefruit. The second juicer is centrifugal – it chops the grapefruit up into bits then spins the juice out of the pulp. Both are great options to purchase, which one is for you is subjective and depends on your individual needs and wants in a juicer.
