Drinking packaged juice is convenient, but it’s packed full of preservatives and artificial sugar. Making juice at home is much healthier, but although you can squeeze oranges quite easily, apples won’t give you juice without a fight.
So, you’re going to need a good juicer machine. Depending on what kind of juice you’re looking to make (carrots put up quite a fight, too), you might need a stronger machine. To help you to find a juicer that’s right for you, we reviewed various juicers and selected our top 5 contenders for the best juicer machine in Pakistan.
What are the types of juicers in Pakistan?
Before you buy a juicer, it’s important to understand the different types and how they differ.
Centrifugal juicers, or fast juicers, are easy to use and usually cheaper than masticating ones. The machine’s spinning blade grinds the fruits and vegetables, forcing the juice to go through a mesh sieve and into a container. This noisy process extracts the juice from the pulp. The quick process creates foam, changing the consistency of the juice a little, which you might not like (especially for citrus fruits).
The juicer’s speed and power make it ideal for juicing hard and semi-hard fruits or vegetables like apples and carrots. The juicing process will not work as well for leafy greens.
Cold-pressed juicers, also known as masticating and slow juicers, are widely considered to be the best kind of juicers. They’re typically quieter and extract more juice from your fruits and vegetables compared to centrifugal juicers.
Additionally, masticating juicers are also better at extracting juice from fibrous foods, like leafy greens. This is because the auger and sharp metal blades squeeze the juice from the leaves, instead of shredding them. The process is slower, but the juice won’t be thick or bitty, and it’ll be a lot less foamy. Masticating juicers are also generally more expensive than centrifugal juicers.
Citrus juicers use spinning reamers to get all the juice out of the soft citrus fruits. While they’re similar to manual juicers, they are easier to use because the motor does most of the work. You’ll need to cut the citrus fruit in half, place one half onto the reamer and press down and let the juicer do the rest. Citrus juicers are typically cheaper, but they’re usually not suited for juicing vegetables or non-citrus fruits.

Our 5 top picks for the best juicer machine in Pakistan
View the complete list
1. Dawlance Hard Fruit Juicer DWHJ 4002
Pitcher capacity: 0.5 L
Power levels: 400 W
Included attachments: 3
Brand Warranty: 2 years
Dawlance’s DWHJ 4002 is a sleek, mid-range juicer machine that offers great value for money. Although Dawlance markets it as a ‘hard fruit’ juicer, it’s a centrifugal juicer with 400W power, which means it’s not very powerful. So, while you can juice hard fruits with it, you’ll want to dice them up beforehand to prevent the machine from struggling.
The DWHJ 4002 has two speed settings, overheat protection, and a 500 ML jug (enough for around 2 glasses of juice). The feeding chute is 65mm, 25mm below the EU’s safety recommendation, so make sure you keep it away from young kids. Otherwise, as far as performance is concerned, having a larger chute makes it easier to fit your fruits in.
The Dawlance DWHJ 4002’s pulp cleaner is detachable, making it easy to include, and Dawlance sends you a filter cleaning brush with each purchase. The parts are all dishwasher safe, too. This juicer machine in Pakistan retails at a little over 13,000 PKR, and you can opt for an installment plan via Daraz.
2. Panasonic Juicer Blender 3-IN-1 (MJ-DJ31)
Feed chute size: 75 mm
Pitcher capacity: 1.5 L
Power levels: 800 W
Included attachments: 5
Brand Warranty: 1 year
If you’re looking to splurge on a high-quality, powerful juicer blender, then Panasonic’s MJ-DJ31 75 is one of the best juicer machines in Pakistan. It’s imported from Malaysia and the build quality is durable, without compromising on the sleek design.
The MJ-DJ31 comes with a large 75mm feeding tube, so you can put larger pieces of fruits and vegetables in, reducing the prep work. The juicer machine is powered by an impressive 800W motor, equipping it to juice even hard fruits and vegetables like apples or carrots quite effortlessly. It has two continuous speed settings.
The juicer’s low-angle cutter thoroughly extracts juice from your food, and the fine filter mesh will separate the juice from the pulp. We also really liked the extra features Panasonic has thrown in, like the chute’s 120 degrees rotation (making it easier to pour your juice), and the drip stop (to prevent leakage). These little additions can really improve your experience.
As a 3-in-1 juicer, the Panasonic MJ-DJ31 also comes with a grinder and blender. Both these additional appliances are built with the same high-quality materials as the juicer machine – they’re made to last. Overall, if you’re looking for a top-of-the-line multipurpose juicer blender, then the MJ-DJ31 is a strong contender for the best juicer machine in Pakistan.
It’s priced at around 39,900 PKR right now, and the steep price is largely due to import duties. Fortunately, you can also purchase it through an installment plan, courtesy of Daraz. Your investment is also protected by the brand’s 1-year warranty.
3. Philips HR2738/00
Feed chute size: –
Pitcher capacity: 0.5L
Power levels: 25W
Warranty: 2 years
If you’re looking for a reliable, compact citrus juicer, then Phillips’ HR2738 is an excellent choice. Citrus juicers like the HR2738 gradually extract juice from your citrus fruits, making sure you get as much juice out as possible.
Unlike the larger, centrifugal juicers we’ve reviewed, the HR2738 is not designed to stand out in your kitchen. Instead, it’s simple, contact design takes up hardly any countertop space and requires minimal storage space. You can just retract the power cord and tuck it away in a corner when it’s not in use.
This juicer checks all the right boxes in terms of performance, so if you’re looking for an everyday citrus juicer, this is it. We would have liked it to have a more than 500ML capacity, but that would have compromised its compact design, so the trade-off is worth it. The Phillips HR2738 retails at around 19,999 and your investment is protected by a 2-year brand warranty.
4. Dawlance Citrus Juicer (DWCJ 8030)
Type: Citrus juicer
Power levels: 30 W
Included attachments: 2
Warranty: 1 year
Looking for an economical citrus juicer that offers great value for money? Then it’s worth considering Dawlance’s DWJC 8030 citrus juicer. This citrus juicer’s motor is slightly less powerful than the Phillips one we reviewed – the Dawlance offers 30W of power vs Phillips’ 40W – but you get 300ML more capacity.
As far as performance goes, the DWJC 8030 is reliable and does a great job at extracting juice from citrus juices. While it takes longer than a centrifugal juicer to extract juice from fruits and vegetables, it offers higher juice yields, preserves taste better, and does a great job at preserving freshness.
The model has a simple, elegant design. It doesn’t take up too much space, although it’s not as compact as the Phillips one. The Dawlance DWJC 8030 also comes with different reamers for juicing different types of citrus fruits, and an adjustable pulp filter to separate pulp from your juice. The juicer is made of BPA-free plastic, and it’s one of the inexpensive options on this list, retailing at around 6,000 PKR.
5. National SP-178 J – 600 Watts
Type: Slow juicer
Feed chute size: 62 mm
Pitcher capacity: 1 L
Power levels: 600 W
Included attachments: 5
National’s kitchen appliances are manufactured locally, so they’re generally priced much lower than products by brands like Phillips or Panasonic. But is there a trade-off? Does National’s quality check out?
Well, the SP-178 J’s build quality isn’t exceptional, but it isn’t subpar either. There’s a lot of plastic, but it’s sturdy, so National has found a nice balance between affordability and durability. Additionally, the blender’s jar is made of high-quality glass, so National hasn’t cut any corners here. Performance-wise, National hasn’t held back either – the SP-178 J is backed by a decent 600W motor and topped off with four side-cut blades. It also has two continuous flow speed settings.
Overall, if you’re looking for a good everyday, multipurpose juicer blender within a budget, then National’s SP-178 J is a reliable option. The juicer machine retails at around 6,700 PKR and is backed by a 1-year warranty.
How to pick the best juicer machine in Pakistan for you
Counter space is always an issue, especially when you have a lot of cooking and prep work to do. So, keep the size of your kitchen tops in mind when you are choosing a juicer, as they can usually be quite bulky. To get a sense of the amount of juice you’ll be able to make in a go, check the size of the jug and pulp container.
Centrifugal juicers are louder, especially when they are extracting juice from hard fruits and vegetables. But some juicers claim to make less noise than others. So, if noise is an issue, pay attention to that. Cold-pressed juicers are usually quieter.
Some juicer machines are dedicated, single-purpose juicers, like the Dawlance DWHJ 4002, while others (like the National NJ 4825) serve multiple functions, including grinding, juicers, and blending. Carefully consider what features you need before purchasing a juicer.
The more you spend on a juicer machine in Pakistan, the better performance you’ll usually get. More expensive juicers are typically quieter and offer better yields (especially if they’re cold-pressed variants), and they tend to have more durable builds.
This one can be a little tricky as there are two types of warranty. If it has the company’s official warranty, then you’ll have to send your juicer or the parts to the company to be replaced or fixed. Others may have a retailer’s warranty too, where they will take care of it for you. So, check which type of warranty it comes with before you make the purchase.
While some brands claim that their low-wattage (400W or so) juicers perform really well, we’ve found that wattage does indicate how powerful a juicer machine is. As far as centrifugal juicers go, most are in the 400W to 1000W range, with the sweet spot being 700 upwards. In generally, juicers in the 700W-800W range are more powerful and better suited for harder foods.
In contrast, slow/cold-pressed juicers only use around 200W as the juicing process is different and doesn’t require as much power. Citrus juicers are semi-automatic, so they’ll need even less power- 30W-60W is usually sufficient.
How to start making different juices with your new juicer
If you’ve just bought your first juicer, you’re probably ready to start making, well, juice. Here’s what you need to know before you get started.
- Understand how the juicer works
It is important that you understand how your new juicer works before you start prepping or cutting any fruits or vegetables in it. The process can be a lot more difficult if you don’t get a grasp on how it works or what its features are.
As boring as it might be, you should begin by thoroughly reading the instruction manual. It will give you a rundown of the buttons and how to use the machine, as well as guidelines for different fruits and vegetables.
- Preparing the fruits or vegetables:
It doesn’t matter how powerful the juicer is, or how big the chute is – you’ll need to do at least some prep work before using your juicer. This may just mean rinsing your fruits or vegetables, but it may also mean checking them for ‘over-ripe’ sections and cutting them before sending them down the chute. These last two steps will depend on the produce and your juicer’s size.
- Put all the ingredients down the chute
This step will differ depending on the type of juicer that you have. Some may require you to put all the fruits and vegetables in the input section first, then turn on the juicer. Others may need you to turn the machine ‘on’ before you send the produce down the chute. If this is the case, make sure all the parts and secure and you’ve chosen the correct settings. Don’t want to put too much force when you’re sending the fruits or vegetables down the cute- you could risk damaging it.
The actual juicing process is pretty quick and should only take a few minutes. After that, you can pour your juice into your glass and enjoy it.
How to make homemade apple juice with your new juicer
To make apple juice the first thing you’ll need is… well apples! You can use other ingredients like cinnamon or sugar to enhance the flavor of the apples, but here’s how to make juice with just apples.
Start by washing around 3-4 apples thoroughly and removing the seeds. You can also peel them if you want, but it won’t affect the overall result that much. Then chop the apples up – the size will depend on the width of your machine’s chute.
Check if the juicer has an inbuilt jug, or if you need to place a glass next to the spout. If it’s the latter, make sure the glass is positioned correctly before you send the apples down the chute.
Take a sip and see what you think. If you’d like to adjust the flavor, now is the time to add the other ingredients.
And don’t forget to drink the juice within 24 to 48 hours. It doesn’t have any preservatives in it, so it will spoil after a few days.
How to make carrot juice with a juicer
Carrots have been associated with many health benefits, including improved eye health, decreased stress levels, and lowers cholesterol levels. If you’re looking to make some healthy carrot juice, here’s how.
Choose around 3-4 carrots, peel them and thoroughly rinse them in water. Use a knife and cut off the top of the carrot, and discard it. Then, check if you need to cut them up (this will depend on the size of your carrot and the size of the chute)/
Insert the carrot into your juicer’s chute and watch as the machine extracts the juice. Once it’s done, stop the machine and pour the juice into a glass.
Note: To add extra flavor to the carrot juice you can mix in some orange juice and salt. You can also save some of the carrot pulp to make some carrot cake.
How to make orange juice with your new juicer
Orange juice is a great accompaniment to every dish. It also has many health benefits like improved cholesterol levels.
Instead of drinking this citrusy juice from a carton, try making it yourself with your citrus juicer.
Peel around 4-5 oranges or more, depending on the number of servings you want to make. Break it into two halves and take out the seeds. Taking out the seeds will make a difference in the taste and overall texture, though you might decide to skip this step.
Take one half of the orange, and put it on the juicer. Turn the machine on and let it do all the work for you. You’ll know it’s done when it stops juicing. You can save the pulp of the orange juice for some other recipes!
The only thing left to do now is to pour your orange juice into your glass and enjoy it!
How to make grape juice with your new juicer
Grapes are great for your blood and oxygen levels. And there’s nothing better than having a nice, cold glass of grape juice on a hot, sunny day. Want to try making some? Just follow these steps.
Pick up some grapes, detach them from the stems and wash them thoroughly. As the grapes are already small, you don’t have to cut them before you put them into the juicer.
Once you’ve added the grapes to the juicer, turn it on and it should start juicing.
Try it and see what you think. If it isn’t cold, try adding some ice or leaving it in the fridge for a bit.
Now that you’ve been through our guide on juicers and juices, you’re totally ready for making juices all on your own, with your very own juicer machine!
