In the run-up to the test, we defined practical requirements and established the following test criteria:
To be able to evaluate these criteria, we have defined several tests for the juicers. In these, all devices must press juice from half a honeydew melon, 2 kiwis, 2 carrots, 2 apples and 2 oranges.
Before the first run, the scope of delivery of the juicer is checked for enclosed accessories. While the juice is pressed, the volume and power consumption of the devices are measured. Handling, user-friendliness and safety are also tested. When the juice is ready, it is examined whether coarse pieces have really landed in the waste container and whether the foam trap (if present) has done its job.
Juicer test recipe: half a honeydew melon, 2 kiwis, 2 carrots, 2 apples & 2 oranges.
The juices are tested by several test persons to maintain objectivity. The focus is on a good juice consistency and as little foam and pulp as possible. Finally, the cleaning is assessed and tested to see if individual parts of the appliances are dishwasher safe.
In order to rule out errors and to ensure that the appliances are resistant to everyday use, each test is carried out in several stages.
The test criteria are given percentages depending on their importance. The final mark is then calculated objectively from the test criteria using an algorithm.
Our product selection is based on the observation of the current market. In addition to popular brand products, we also include insider tips in our selection. Criteria such as price and range of functions are an important factor for us. The test field is also determined by analysis and evaluation of customer reviews and external tests (e.g. Stiftung Warentest).
The devices are purchased anonymously or lent to us by the manufacturer. Dealers and manufacturers have no influence on the tests and our evaluation.
As soon as new relevant products come on the market, our test field will be expanded to include them. The new products undergo the same tests as the already tested devices.
