If you’re a diehard juicer who is looking for the best masticating juicer, so you can get most nutrients out of juiced veggies and fruit, you probably know there’s a lot of different models on the market. How to find the best single gear juicer? There are quite a few great models available, so you just need to establish how much you’re willing to pay for a masticating juicer (your budget) and what features should it possess (e.g. should it be a vertical or a horizontal juicer, should it have large or small feed tube, etc.).
Just for a quick recap, masticating juicers are slower and more expensive than centrifugal ones (probably the most popular type of juicer), but they’re able to yield more juice from the same amount of fruit and vegetables. Also, juice yielded by these juicers retains more vitamins and can be stored for up to few days (please remember the sooner you’ll drink the juice, the more vitamins it has).
If you’re not sure whether buying a masticating juicer is the best thing to do, you can read about different kinds of juicers in this article.

Horizontal Masticating Juicers
Omega J8006 Nutrition Center Commercial Masticating Juicer
Omega J8006 is one of the both top rated and best-selling single gear juicers. It features a powerful motor which juices whatever you might want to juice. It’s very easy to set up, use and clear. Automatic pulp ejection allows continuous juicing for a long time. Please note that the feed tube is pretty small, so you need to cut fruit and vegetables before juicing them (that’s beneficial because smaller parts yield more juice than bigger ones).
If you’re looking for a great horizontal masticating juicer with a small feed tube, this is probably the best choice on the market.

Omega J8005 is another great masticating juicer.
