A  is one of the key tools for bartenders to have on hand if their drink recipes call for citrus fruit or a lot of fresh juice. They can also be used to create a variety of other types of liquids, like sauces, purees and nut butters.

They usually juicer press a base with a container in which the prepared fruits, berries or vegetables are placed for squeezing. The top of the press, which is attached to a lever or handle, is then brought down to crush the food and extract juice that flows from holes around the bottom and sides of the container.

There are also handheld presses that look more like a potato ricer, with a plastic reamer that sits atop a container. A handle is then pulled over the reamer to press it against the flesh of half a piece of citrus or the rind of a whole tomato, turning the fruit and rind inside out for extraction. This type of tool is more suited for small amounts of juice than larger quantities.

A well-designed cold press juicer can juice a wide range of fruits and veggies, including leafy greens and wheatgrass. It may take some time to master, but it’s well worth the effort for a healthy boost that will give your body the nutrients it needs.

Our pick, the Omega JC2022GY11, is a powerful and expensive machine with a system to grind produce into a superfine pulp on one side and a hydraulic press that squeezes every drop of juice out of it. The juice it made in our recent testing tasted clean and sweet with incredibly vibrant color, minimal foam and bone dry pulp. Be sure to clean the juicer immediately after use, to prevent residue from drying on and being difficult to remove.
