Olexy was smitten by this juicer's wide chute, small footprint, near-silent operation, and powerful, fuss-free performance. The machine chewed through every fruit and vegetable without jamming, and produced dry pulp (an indication that it extracted juice effectively). "It's quiet, rapid, and efficient," says Olexy. The only reason it didn't get a 10? Its lid popped off when it was working hard, but this was still the best of the bunch that were tested. [$380; omegajuicers.com]
