Wheatgrass is a potent juice and with that comes a potent color that can easily stain plastic and other materials. Thus if we got the extra cash, getting one of the best stainless steel wheatgrass juicers is the better investment. A plastic wheatgrass juicer will soon start to stain and look grubby with time.
That said there are plastic wheatgrass machines that juice wheatgrass just as effectively as their stainless steel counterparts, and are a great option if you prefer to be thrifty. You can read more about this at my general review of wheatgrass juicers at best wheatgrass juicers.
There are numerous stainless steel wheatgrass juicers in the marketplace, but I am only going to look at 2 here, simply because (in my opinion) they are 2 of the best available. So let’s take a closer look!

Clean up is super easy in this juicer. Wheatgrass juicers generally are easier to clean than other types of juicers (such as masticating juicers and centrifugal juicers) because they are more simple machines. However, the HJ Hurricane is as easy as it gets even by wheatgrass juicer standards. With focus I could clean it in 3 minutes.
If you do buy this juicer, please note this important point! It comes with the screen pre-installed. If you do not take the screen out, you will get negligible amounts of juice out of this juicer. This is not always obvious for those who have not juiced before, and they think the machine is not working properly. Once you remove the screen you will get an excellent juice output. One of the highest juice yields of any manual wheatgrass juicer for that matter.
Overall this is an awesome wheatgrass juicer. It is my favorite in fact. It is super easy to use, super easy to clean, produces excellent juice yields, and is stainless steel. It is one of the more expensive wheatgrass juicer machines, but if your going to juice wheatgrass regularly, its going to make for a happy experience.
MJ445 Miracle Hand Juicer
Features at a Glance:
- For home or commercial use
- Easy to clean and operate
- High juice yields with minimal foaming
This stainless steel wheatgrass juicer is effectively the same juicer as the HJ Hurricane Juicer reviewed above. Equally of high quality, easy to clean, easy to operate, easy to assemble / disassemble and produces high juice yields. There is really only one key difference between the machines – this one has a satin finish, and the HJ Hurricane has a polished finished.
Which of the 2 juicers should you buy? Basically it’s about the finish that you like!
