In this review we are going to cover two juicers perfect for juicing lemons. Lemon juice brings a variety of benefits to the table. For one, drinking fresh squeezed lemon juice can prevent kidney stones by raising citrate levels in the urine. Fresh juice from a lemon can also support your weight loss goals because of the fiber it contains. You can drink a bit of lemon juice to start your day off right, stimulating your digestive track. And lemon can even sooth a sore throat if you mix it with honey.
A good lemon juicer will be versatile – it should be able to juice a variety of citrus fruits so you can get the most value for your money, and It should also be easy to use.
Now let’s look at the juicers:
The Best Juicers Reviewed Pick For The Best Lemon Juicer For 2016 – Masticating Juicer
The JM3000 is an impressive, versatile juicer which can do more than just juice lemons. It works like a slow juicer would pushing the juice out of the lemons and separates seeds and other items from the juice with a stainless steel filter basket. It also works as a blender – a four tip stainless steel blade chops up the produce, allowing you to make smoothies, milk shakes and more.
It is a citrus juicer too, of course. One juicing cone can be used not only on lemons, but on limes, grapefruits and oranges too. All three attachments are powered by an 800W motor strong enough to juice hard produce like apples. The spout is designed not to drip, so that there will be minimal mess and wasted produce. Using the citrus juicer is easy – simply push the power button to operate.
The twenty four ounce cup that accompanies the cold press juicer is BPA free, so you can juice safely. Cleaning is very straight forward. If you clean the juicer immediately after use, it should only take about a minute. For a three in one, it has a surprisingly clean, simple look that would look nice in most kitchens.
This Juiceman works perfectly on citrus, but a problem may arise when you are juicing other produce. The motor moves too fast, shooting the pulp out forcefully, so that too much juice is left in the pulp, meaning a chunk of the produce you use will go to waste.
As a juicer alone, the Juiceman would not receive a high rating, but the fact that it is an all in one appliance, and that it juices citrus beautifully, makes it a winner in this slow citrus juicer review. This juicer can not only accommodate all types of citrus fruits, it can juice and blend produce. This, coupled with the fact that it is easy to use means that the Juiceman fits both of the criteria for purchase.
This would be a good buy for anyone looking for value, or a citrus juicer with multiple functions. We give it four and a half stars.
- Juice extractor, blender and citrus juicer
- Anti drip spout
- One size fits all juicing cone
- Use the juicer in a variety of ways
- Easy to use for citrus
- Looks nice in the kitchen
- Doesn’t do a great job at juicing other produce
The Best Juicers Reviewed Pick For The Best Lemon Juicer For 2016 – Centrifugal Juicer
This juicer is very easy to use, and easy to assemble. Push one button to turn it on and off, and adjust the pulp as you see fit. It works as a centrifugal juicer – it spins clockwise to begin extracting juice as you push down on the reamer. Once it is finished, remove the fruit and place it back on the reamer – the juicer will then spin counter clockwise to extract even more juice from the fruit.
As mentioned you can adjust the amount of pulp you want in your juice as well. This comes in handy if you like pulpy juice or if you want to use it in your cooking. The juicer container is clear with measurement marks so you can follow recipes and see how much juice has been squeezed. It has an easy pour spout, so you can pour juice directly into a drinking glass or stash it in the fridge.
The juicer only weighs a little over two and a half pounds and is small in stature, so it can be stored easily, or if you want to set it on your counter it will not take up too much space. It comes with two cones, so it can accommodate large fruit and small alike.
Easy to wipe clean, this Black and Decker is also dishwasher safe. Because of its small size, this juicer can heat up while being used too much. But for one person, this juicer is a good pick. It can juice lemons as well as larger fruits, and is easy to use, so it satisfies the requirements we listed for a lemon juicer. This is a good pick for a one person household, and it gets four stars.
- Adjustable Pulp
- Dishwasher Safe
- Clockwise and counterclockwise juicing motion

- Easy to use
- Decide how much pulp you want in your juice with this juicer

Final Thoughts on the Best Lemon Juicer for 2016
Although both juicers do a splendid job juicing lemons, the main difference between these two juicers is in the design. The Juiceman is masticating – it pushes the produce until the juice is extracted, while the Black and Decker is centrifugal. It spins the produce to juice extraction. To decide which juicer you want to purchase, it is necessary to weigh how important versatility is to you against how much you will be juicing citrus. However, either juicer is a winner when it comes to lemons.
