Why do people juice? A variety of reasons. One, they want to be healthy. Juice extracted from fruits and vegetables contains a wealth of nutrients, which include vitamins, enzymes, antioxidants, and roughage. Two, they love to keep cool. Summer days can be gruelling. Nothing beats a fresh juice squeezed out of actual fruits in your own kitchen to drink while standing out on your patio. And three, simply because juicing is insanely cool. Reading that, the thought comes to your mind, “I need a juicer!” Yes you do. This review will give you the facts about the ten best cold press juicers from the Tribest Corporation.
Tribest Corporation differs from other juicer manufacturers, in that it has built its business model on enabling healthy lifestyles for its customers. This leading designer, OEM manufacturer, and marketer deals in a wide range of branded, high quality, small appliances in the healthy lifestyle niche.
Founded in 1988 in Los Angeles, California, the company has sent out its brand across oceans and continents, and has captured markets in numerous countries, including the US, Canada, Germany, Australia, New Zealand, the UK, Japan, and Taiwan. Its focus on healthy lifestyle products ensures that their cold press juicers will produce the highest yield of nutrients for customers embracing the juicing lifestyle for health and dieting reasons. Since 1988, they have launched numerous juicing products of increasing innovation and sophistication.
Why Cold Press Juicers are Superior
If you want a juicer that will give you maximum health benefits, choose a cold press juicer. We also call them masticating juicers or slow juicers. Cold press juicers first crush, then press fruits and vegetables, giving you a high juice yield.
Why do we call them “cold press”? Because they don’t produce as much heat as centrifugal juicers.
What constitutes their superiority, though? In a nutshell: they minimize oxidation. Oxidation is the breakdown of the nutrients in your apple or broccoli. An example: a fast juicer will introduce more oxygen into the juice, and iron molecules in the apple will oxidize.
Many people think heat causes oxidation. However, experts have come out to debunk this popular myth. The main culprit is speed. But either way, the cold press juicer still beats the alternative. You see, fast juicers spin rapidly, which promotes higher oxidation levels. Slow juicers, on the other hand, mimic our chewing process. Because they are slow, they reduce the ingredients’ exposure to oxygen.
Less oxidation, more nutrition. And that’s the magic benefit of cold press juicers. They make healthier juice. And if that hasn’t made you rub your hands with glee, consider this: they can process a wider range of fruits and vegetables than centrifugal juicers.
Ten Best Tribest Cold Press Juicers
In this review we will examine the ten best Tribest cold press juicers to make your shopping easier. So, without further ado, the juicers:
- TRIBEST SW-2000-B SLOWSTAR VERTICAL SLOW COLD PRESS JUICER

- TRIBEST SOLOSTAR 4 SS-4250-B HORIZONTAL SLOW MASTICATING COLD PRESS JUICER

1. TRIBEST SW-2000-B SLOWSTAR VERTICAL SLOW COLD PRESS JUICER
At a low speed of 47 RPM (Revolutions per Minute), the SW-20000-B juicer reduces oxidation of enzymes, vitamins, and other essential vitamins which friction and heat produced in the juicing process tend to destroy.
Instead, it preserves these nutrients, making it a perfect choice for a customer practicing a healthy lifestyle.
Many juicing pros will tell you to look for a juicer that doesn’t jam. You are in your kitchen juicing carrots because you read on Huff Post that they are good for your sight when suddenly it stops.
Bummer, right? The carrots have clogged the juicer.
Fortunately for you, this cold press juicer has a 200 watt motor and 3-stage speed reduction gears which produces as much torque as a 9 HP motor, that is 2 to 4 times stronger crushing force than other juicers...
Long story short, it doesn’t jam.
Vegetables often jam, especially those rich in tough fibers. In addition, the higher torque reduces the amount of stress imposed on the machine, and the juicer takes 3 times less time to juice a recipe.
The blade of a juicer does most of the work, and as such a customer in search of a juicer must consider the type of blade each juicer has. Tribest’s SW-2000-B has a Duoblade double-edged auger, which is twice as effective as single-edged augers. Rapidly cutting and crushing fruit and veggies, it produces a higher yield juice.
Most people loathe excessive pulp residue. Those people will love this juicer, because the Duoblade leaves less pulp in the juice. If that’s not enough to sell you on it, it is made from Ultem, a plastic material eight times stronger than cheaper varieties used in other slow juicers.
Its detachable juice cap makes cleaning easy. The juice cap makes your juice doesn’t leak out or drip out while you are switching juice containers.
Bonus: it comes with a mincer. Yes, this juicer is multi-purpose. Not only can you make juice with it, you can make sorbets, nut butters, and sauces.
It has a ten year warranty.
It may generate more pulp and foam than you would like. For some people that can be a deal breaker, but most people will find that its strengths far outweigh any weaknesses.
2. TRIBEST GREEN STAR ELITE GSE-5000 JUMBO TWIN GEAR COLD PRESS JUICE EXTRACTOR
Spoiler alert: I am excited just writing about the GSE-5000 cold press juice extractor. Why? Because it’s chock full of unique features. For a juicing freak like me, it’s a treasure. Okay, let’s move on before I geek out on you.
First off, this juicer practices complete mastication. Mastication refers to the process of crushing produce, and pressing juice out of it. The term comes from the biological equivalent of teeth chewing food to prepare it for digestion.
To extend the chewing metaphor, most juicers do not have a complete mastication system, employing only the molar (crushing function). Tribest’s GSE-5000 model includes the incisor (slicing) and the canine (cutting) functions, making it one of the most efficient juicers around. This amazing feat is made possible by its revolutionary stainless steel twin gears.
Juicers that clog irritate. Tribest knows this. They have made the GSE-5000 with a pressure adjustment system that enables you to effectively eject pulp for a wide variety of produce without the resultant jamming. Why? Because different types of produce require different amounts of pressure.
As said earlier, Tribest specializes in healthy lifestyle appliances. Some juicers can inadvertently compromise that. But the GSE-5000 juicer dual gears come with a nylon safety buffer in between the two metal gears to ensure they do not touch each other as they are operating. This prevents stainless steel shavings falling into the juice.
Most of us juice for the health benefit. Tribest has designed this juicer to include an exclusive magnetic and bio-ceramic technology that allows it to extract juice packed with a higher nutritional content. I won’t geek out, and go into specifics here, but in a nutshell, this feature delays oxidation, which means your juice retains its freshness for a longer period of time: up to 72 hours in the freezer.
Bonus: with the GSE-5000, you can make all sorts of tasty and nutritious recipes, from nut butters to sorbets, pate, and well sauces. It’s a snacker’s dream come true.
It has a 12 year warranty.
Cleaning the juicing can be difficult. Try this hack: run a jet of cold water over it, then scrub it out from the inside with the cleaning brush that comes with the juicer. That should break off the pulp fibers stuck in the holes of the screen. After that scrub the outside.
3. TRIBEST SOLOSTAR 4 SS-4250-B HORIZONTAL SLOW MASTICATING COLD PRESS JUICER
You have probably heard of BPA right? BPA is the acronym for Bisphenol A, a chemical commonly found in plastics. Manufacturers use BPA to harden plastics. Experts say that 90% of us have BPA in our bodies. We get it by ingesting foods that have been in BPA-made containers.
The FDA has since 2010 expressed concern about the potential effects of this chemical on the brain, behaviour, and prostrate glands in foetuses, infants and young children.
If you are a parent, this must make your skin crawl. If you are wondering why the bio-chem lecture, here is why: in the Tribest 4 SS-4250-B juicer, all parts that come into contact with your food are made from BPA-free materials. You may breathe easier knowing your kids are safe.
Remember what we said about speed and oxidation? At 57 RPM, this cold press juicer has a reduced rate of oxidation, ensuring a higher nutrient yield in juice produced.
The gear reduction of its motor helps generate 20% more torque, which makes jamming a distant after-thought.
Bonus 1: I have seen this juicer. Trust me. It’s breath-taking. Compact, sleek, intelligent design. It will take your kitchen to a whole new level aesthetically.
Bonus 2: It comes with the longest warranty of its kind in the industry. 15 years. That’s right.
It may clog with tougher vegetables like carrots, so ensure you chop them up properly before juicing.
4. TRIBEST GREEN STAR GS-1000 JUICE EXTRACTOR
When it comes to nutritional benefit, those Tribest Green Stars really give other juicers a run for their money. Here is why. The GS-1000 Juice Extractor incorporates a twin gear system, with the twin gears having special cutting points on the outside of the gears to help in handling leafy greens and stringy veggies like celery without the fibers getting tangled up or clogged. Juicing vets will know how tough juicing those leafy greens can get.
This juicer also ensures complete mastication. At first I was sceptical about this complete mastication business. It sounded too much like a marketing buzzword. But then I did my research, and the findings astounded me. While ordinary mastication provided by other juicers involves only one step (crushing) of the mastication process, this Green Star will take your veggies and fruits through a rigorous three step process of slicing, cutting, and crushing, to get the maximum nutrient yield from within those broccoli leaves.
But perhaps best of all, the stainless steel, bio-ceramic and magnetic twin gears of the GS-1000 will help delay the oxidation process, allowing you to store the juice for long periods of time, as much as 48 to 72 hours. Isn’t that just dandy?
Bonus: other wonderful features include ease of cleaning and of assembly, an automatic pulp ejection mechanism, and the ability to prepare a variety of recipes, from baby foods to sorbets and nut butters.
It has a five year warranty.
The plastic material cracks in some instances. But if you take care of it, it will serve you for longer.
5. TRIBEST GREEN STAR GS-3000 DELUXE TWIN GEAR JUICE EXTRACTOR
We all love to juice. But not always. Juicing can get exceedingly frustrating at times. You want your wheatgrass juice like yesterday, but the machine can’t do it. It has jammed. Fibrous vegetables, leafy greens: our doctors want us to have more of them, but some of these juicers seem to have different ideas.
Thankfully, the GS-3000 deluxe can handle this. From hard roots like carrot and ginger, to fibrous stalks like celery and rhubarb, and even the toughest leafy greens like kale and wheatgrass, this Tribest juicer rises always to the occasion. Plus it can grind nuts and grains too!
Second reason why juicing can get frustrating: noise. High speed centrifugal juicers vibrate at high decibels. If you do not have a large living space, this becomes a problem because it distracts and annoys people in other rooms. This juicer operates at a low speed, and quietly.
Third reason why juicing can get frustrating: cleaning. With the exception of a few fortunate souls, most of us approach the prospect of cleaning up with little joy. Yet cleaning we must. I always tell that to people buying new juicers: “Don’t listen to the marketer. Prioritize cleaning.” Because this discipline enables you to use your juicer for longer. Maintenance comes first. The GS-1000 is easy to clean, and easy to assemble. Plus it comes with a cleaning brush.
In addition, to solve the clogging problem caused by pulp, this Tribest juicer comes with an automatic pulp ejection mechanism, which enables continuing juicing and easier clean-up.
Bonus: It comes with a breadstick maker set and a pasta maker set.
It has a five year warranty.
In some cases the plastic might crack. Ensure you maintain your juicer properly. That way you will have few complaints.
6. TRIBEST GREEN STAR ELITE GSE-5300 DELUXE JUMBO TWIN GEAR JUICE EXTRACTOR
Yet another Tribest Green Star juicer, the GSE -5300 Deluxe won’t disappoint. Do you prefer to work in silence? It has you sorted. With its low speed motor, this juicer doesn’t make a racket.
Tired of juicers that clog? Not this model. With its automatic pulp ejection mechanism, it ensures continuous juicing and easier cleanup while minimizing jamming.
Do you crave variety? Lucky for you, the GSE-5300 will do it all: baby foods, nut butters, sorbets, fruits, leafy greens, fibrous stalks, name it.
Are you on a diet? You definitely want your juice to pack as many nutrients as possible. This Tribest juicer’s HD Twin-Gear juicing technology produces juice that contains a higher nutritional yield. Literally, each drop is packed with more nutrients.
People often have trouble with juicing harder food materials. They make juicers jam. Not with this one. Not only can it do fruits, herbs and veggies, it can also grind nuts and grains.
It has a five year warranty.
It does not produce as much juice as previous Tribest Green Star models. However, its other features might compensate for this.
7. TRIBEST GREEN STAR GP-E1503 GREEN POWER GOLD JUICER
Wheatgrass can give you gray hair. Try it. On another juicer though, not on the Green Star GP-E1503, because it won’t give you gray hair. It won’t give you anything but clean, efficient service. Wheatgrass, a leafy grain, proves too tough to handle for most juicers. This model, however, will handle wheatgrass, carrots, rhubarb, all those tough veggies. Plus, grains and nuts don’t give daunt it.
As stated earlier in this review, Tribest has made healthy lifestyles its bread and butter. All their products are designed and engineered with this end in sight. With the current relentless rise in obesity in the country and globally, more and more people have taken up diets. Many of them end up juicing. Healthy living has become a movement, and juicing a way of life. Like other Tribest juicers, the GP-E1503 is designed to preserve as many nutrients as possible when juicing.
Other features include: an automatic pulp ejection mechanism, easy to clean and assemble, and quiet operation.
Bonus: It comes with a breadstick maker set and a pasta maker set. The pasta maker has three settings, depending on the type of pasta food you want to make: spaghetti, fettuccini, or angel hair.
It has a 5 year warranty.
This juicer may be prone to producing a lot of foam. There is nothing you can do about this. Some people hate foam, but most don’t mind it too much.
8. TRIBEST GREEN STAR ELITE GSE-5310 BLACK DELUXE JUMBO TWIN GEAR JUICE EXTRACTOR
If you want a juicer that you will move around a lot, perhaps from the kitchen to another room, look no further than the GSE-5310. With its balanced sure-grip handle, designed for easy carrying, it is as portable a juicer as you will find anywhere.
This cold press juicer from Tribest Corporation has been dubbed Tribest ‘s Next Generation twin gear juicer, with features such as new Jumbo twin gears, higher yields, new safety systems, a sleek design, a lighter weight, easier cleanup, and increased versatility.
In addition, it incorporates the unique 3 stage mastication process outlined elsewhere in this review. This ensures it produces juices of a much higher nutritional yield.
With its bio-ceramic magnetic gears, it can delay oxidation. Meaning? That you can keep your juice in the freezer for up to 72 hours, and it will preserve most of its nutritional goodness.
It comes with a 12 year warranty.
As with many juicers, it can produce a bit more pulp than some customers will like. To prevent that, be smart. Chop up the produce properly before you juice it.
9. TRIBEST GS2000 TWIN GEAR JUICE EXTRACTOR
You have probably heard of whole food juicers. If that’s what you are looking for, try the GS2000 Twin Gear. Its ability to process whole foods makes it popular with many people. It can process diverse foods, including almonds, dates, nuts, nuts, vegetables, fruits, and wheatgrass, among others.
The manufacturer has described it as constituting heavy duty construction made from the highest quality materials.
Other features include: ease of assembly, disassembly, and cleanup; and a reverse turning safety feature.
Bonus: perhaps you want to make spaghetti noodles, or maybe you adore breadsticks? To satisfy this need, Tribest has added two accessories to the GS2000: a pasta maker and a breadstick maker.
It has a five year warranty.
It is rather heavy, weighing about 25 pounds, so not convenient for moving around. Purchase it only if you have a permanent space for it.
10. TRIBEST SOLO STAR-II SS-9002 SINGLE-AUGER JUICE EXTRACTOR
Sometimes new juicers coming out in the market will have nothing unique about them. A company will take pre-existing models, pick and use features from them, and create a new juicer.
Rarely does a new juicer deserve the label “new and improved”. Not the Solo Star-II SS-9002. It is truly a new and improved model of the Solo Star line of single-auger juicers, with features such as improved auger design and advanced filtering technology that has raised the standard for other juicers.
The only juicer featuring second generation Dual-Stage Juice Extraction, it brings to the table a level of efficiency and versatility surpassing other single-auger juicers.
With its low RPM, this juicer ensures your juice retains most of its nutritional vitality, a boon for the health conscious.
Bonus: it comes with accessories for making round noodles, flat pasta, and for milling mocha.
It has a five year warranty.
Being manufactured for North American electrical standards, you can only use it in the United States and Canada. If you do not reside in these two countries, be sure to find out the electrical standards of your own country and match them against the juicers you are considering before making the purchase. Enquire to find out if the manufacturer has versions of the model you want that match your country’s standards.
As I mentioned earlier, I consider the Tribest Green Star Elite GSE-5000 Jumbo Twin Gear Cold Press Juice Extractor to be a top notch juicer, and would recommend it to anyone. If looking for safety and security, consider the Tribest Solostar 4 SS-4200-B Horizontal Slow Masticating Cold Press Juicer: it uses BPA-free materials, and its warranty lasts 15 years.
Finally: have you ever wondered how one product can receive rave reviews from one customer and at the same time depressing ones from another? I have observed these two groups of people, and now I think I know why they behave the way they do.
The first group tend to be conscientious. They take care of their property. They are also happier, more successful. They believe in discipline. Repeat what I have said in the opposite to find out my observations of the second group. Don’t treat your juicer with disdain, negligence, and anything less than motherly care, and expect first class performance from it. If you want to be one of the five star reviewers, act in a five star manner.
