Where to Buy a Juicer
Congratulations on your decision to buy a juicer! These excellent kitchen appliances will help you live a healthier lifestyle by giving you your recommended five daily servings of fruits and vegetables. The great thing about juicing is how convenient it is to turn fresh, healthy produce into delicious juices that you can take with you anywhere.
Where do you purchase the perfect juicer for you? That starts with figuring out what type of juicer you’d like. There are juicers for citrus only, whole juicers, slow juicers, silent models, and masticating ones. After you’ve narrowed down the type of juicer you want and the brand, then it’s time to locate one in the stores.
One good thing is that juicers have now become so common, that you can find the brand you prefer at multiple stores and on multiple websites. There are six major locations where you can purchase a juicer: Walmart, Bed, Bath & Beyond, Kohl’s, Target, Amazon, or directly from the manufacturer’s website.
Walmart has become the quintessential modern department store, equipped with just about every household item you can think of; that includes juicers, too. You can go to a physical store location to buy your juicer, or you can search on Walmart’s website in the housewares section. They’re located in the small appliances area.
Walmart carries a decent selection of juicers, including simple models for citrus juicing, and complex models from brands like Black & Decker, KitchenAid, Breville, and the Jack LaLanne juicer. There are more available on the website.
Bed, Bath & Beyond
Bed, Bath & Beyond focuses exclusively on housewares, and it stocks a large selection of small kitchen appliances, including juicers. They carry more interesting and unusual brands than Walmart, like Tribest, Novis, Hurom, Kuvings, and Omega. They offer traditional centrifugal juicers, which are the most well-known, as well as slow juicers, which use a different extraction process.
Some of them do double-duty as smoothie makers, sorbet makers, or blenders. The prices range from less than $150 all the way to up over $500, depending on the model. There’s a really large selection on their website, too, and you can also read customer reviews or leave one of your own once you purchase a juicer.
Kohl’s is another department store similar to Target or Walmart, but they have a smaller housewares section. They have the distinction of always featuring and carrying the NutriBullet and NutriNinja personal blenders. Besides these two appliances, they carry a small selection of actual juicers. The brands are usually Oster, Breville, Omega, Brentwood,
Salton, Cuisinart, and Kuvings.
Most of their juicers are online only, so you’ll have to go to the website to purchase them. They also have a Kohl’s cash-saving feature that can help you get a discount on juicers. Kohl’s has a great review section on their website, to compare actual customer testimonies. While it’s not a juicer, the NutriBullet is definitely their most popular product.
In recent years, Target has greatly expanded and now offers a huge selection of small kitchen appliances in the housewares section. To compete with Amazon and other online shopping, they also have an enormous website where you can take your pick from the juicers offered there.
There is a large brand selection, including Oster, Kuvings, Omega, Cuisinart, Koolatron, Juiceman, Black & Decker, NuWave, or Hamilton Beach. Target offers competitive prices both online and in-store. The advantage of shopping in a store for a juicer is that you get to observe up close how well made the juicer is and get an idea as to its size. Most juicers are very large, so they’ll take up substantial counter space. If you find a model you like on Target’s website, you can have it shipped to your local Target for pick-up instead of paying for shipping.
Amazon has been a shopping game changer, to say the least. The massive retail giant boasts two extraordinary advantages over in-store shopping: product selection and price reduction. Every single juicer manufacturer offers their products on Amazon. Most shoppers wouldn’t think of searching elsewhere in a store other than Amazon, especially if you have Prime, which makes you eligible for free shipping on select products.
Amazon also offers thousands of product reviews. You can read through them and compare models to see which one is best for you based on juice quality, how easy it is to clean, and other factors. Amazon will also tell you how quickly shipping times are and exactly what date you’ll receive your juicer. There’s also the option of purchasing a second-hand or refurbished juicer through other manufacturers.
Amazon also offers excellent customer service, although return policies vary. Check with the manufacturer before purchasing to make sure you’re covered by the warranty.
