The Hamilton Big Mouth Juice Extractor is for the budget conscious individual but still wants good juice yield out of juicing fruits and veges. Why is it called big mouth? Well, it has a 3 inch wide feeding chute which means less cutting and preparation. This is what I like about this juicer. It has a similar sized feeding chute like the Breville JE98XL juicer.
Here is why I think you should get it:
Pros of owing the Hamilton Big Mouth Juicer
- Cheap – At just 55 dollars, you can get yourself this juicer. Certainly won’t break the bank and in the long run does do wonders for your health.
- Powerful and Big Feeding Mouth at 3 inches wide . Even at 55 dollars, it still packs a punch to juice most fruits and veges as it comes with an 800w motor with a large 3 inch feeding chute so pretty much any regular juicing by the home user won’t be too difficult. It has been tested to juice cut oranges, apples, pears, beetroot, ginger, celery, kiwi, pineapples with no problems at all. Spinach and softer fruits may yield less juice as with most centrifugal juicers unless you are curious about the Omega juicer range.
- Easy to clean and BPA free. The food pusher, strainer bowl, stainless steel strainer, juice cover and pulp bin are easily removed and cleaned with the supplied brush. The brush gets into little places around the blades and filter to clean it properly. It is also dishwasher safe. Just remember to clean the juicer as soon as you’ve finished juicing. Otherwise when the pulp dries it will be harder to scrub off. If this happens to you, just soak it with water.
- Easy operation and assembly. The Hamilton Big mouth juicer is very easy to assemble, disassemble and operate. You don’t even have to look at the manual to operate it. The predominantly plastic materials make it easy to move around your bench top.
- Small kitchen foot print. Of all the juicers we have reviewed. The Hamilton Big mouth juicer has one of the smaller foot prints. It is comparatively smaller than the Breville JE98XL juicer.
- Surprisingly dry enough pulp. For a juicer that is less than 60 dollars. It surprisingly does a better job than juicers 2x to 3x it’s price. This includes juicing veges and fruits together. The pulp certainly does not feel wet.

Cons of using the Hamilton Big Mouth juice extractor.
- Fairly loud. Overall this juicer does pack a punch juicing. I think the makers of this juicer certainly didnt want to compromise juice yield quality vs noise. For better health a bit of loud juicing is fine. I would say the Hamilton big mouth juicer does sound comparatively as loud as the more expensive Breville JE98XL juicer and Breville BJE200EXL juicer.
- Plastic materials and light. Well at under 60 dollars, you certainly can’t expect this juicer to be made of stainless steel right? Being made of plastic does make it rattle more and vibrate. What I’d do is put a cloth under the juicer to minimize vibration.
Overall, for a juicer of this price it is a very good buy. I would certainly recommend getting the Hamilton Big Mouth juicer. Some users may complain a bit of the pulp being not dry enough which is not something I’ve found. But even if it isn’t you can use the pulp for soups, sauces and garden composting.
