What’s The Best Juicer Under $100?
Most juicing newbies are looking for the best juicer under $100. Heck, even long-term fans of juicing would love to find the Holy Grail of appliances — a juicer that is affordable and amazing.
Lucky for you, we have looked the most promising juicer models and compiled a list of the 5 absolute best juicers under $100.
The Best Juicer Under $100 (5 Options!)
We are at the limit with the Breville model but you really get a lot for your money. As the name suggests this is the compact model which is also partially why it’s cheaper than other Breville Juice Fountains. It is a centrifugal 700 Watt juicer with a fairly large 3” chute and fairly quick motor.
Here is what we love about it:
- The motor is extremely powerful. At 700 Watts and 14 000 RPM, it extracts the juice very quickly and efficiently. The yield is great and with a motor so strong you will not even have to push the vegetables — you will practically just have to hold the pusher in place (to prevent your ceiling from getting covered in pulp) and let the juicer do its’ magic.
- The size of the appliance is definitely a huge advantage. If you live in a smaller apartment or if your kitchen is already a bit cluttered with appliances, the Breville BJE200XL Compact Juice Fountain is super convenient. It has heavy duty power but it does not take up a lot of space.
- Because it is not a very large machine, cleaning it is very easy and quick. Perfect if you don’t have a lot of time in the mornings (and let’s be honest, who does?).
- It will last you a long, long time. People claim it outlasts much more expensive and supposedly more ‘professional’ juicers.
- The plastic is BPA free. You avoid quite a bit of health hazards by choosing a BPA-free juicer especially since you are going to be using it often.
- Since this is a compact model, you can’t make bigger batches of juice. It is great for couples or singles but maybe not for big families.
- It is a centrifugal juicer and due to the high speed, the juice will oxidize quicker. You can’t prepare juice ahead of time because it will lose a lot of it’s health benefits.
This masticating juicer is probably the best value you can get on the market. For a price that is low even for a centrifugal juicer, the Oliver Smith model gives you a sturdy, high-quality, efficient machine.
It produces a lot of juice and does pretty well even with ingredients that are tough for most juicers. Not only is it the best juicer under 100$ among the masticating juicers but it is also one of the best models you can buy regardless of the price.
- As a masticating juicer, it reduces oxidation. You can store your juices for longer without sacrificing the nutritional qualities.
- Although it is best used with ingredients that are not too hard or too soft, the Oliver Smith juicer works pretty well with tougher products like fresh ginger, too. Anti-inflammatory juices for the win!
- The efficiency is unbeatable. You get every last droplet of juice — the pulp comes out practically dry.
- The chute is large enough and it has a metal piece to slice up larger chunks of fruit or veggies. This saves you a lot of preparation time.
- It is very simple to assemble and clean. Learning to use it does not take more than a few tries.
- The noise is very low and you needn’t worry about bothering your neighbors or roommates.
- The juicer is very sturdy. This is not a bad thing in itself but consider the fact that it weights about 20lbs before buying. This is not a machine you can easily pick up and move around.
At just $56.99 this VonShef juicer offers unbeatable price to quality ratio. The Great British Food Magazine rated it among it’s top 5 juicers ever (regardless of price). It has some pretty impressive characteristics and it is so affordable that any beginner will love it.
- Although it is lighter and smaller than most juicers it does a remarkably good job with all sorts of veggies. Even kale and spinach that are notoriously difficult for cheaper juicers get turned into health benefits in no time.
- The extra-large 70 oz. pulp container is super convenient. You can make large batches without having to clean the juicer out halfway through. It is also pretty easy to clean. The mess will be very, very limited which is all we want on busy mornings.
- The 700 Watt motor works at up to 18 000 RPM. It is very quick and surprisingly also not too noisy. Of course, this is a centrifugal juicer so it will be louder than masticating models but not so much that it wakes up everybody in the house.
- It is entirely dishwasher safe and none of the parts will get deformed if you throw them in the dishwasher frequently. Even less mess!
- No pulp gets into the juice mostly because the juicer is so fast. You won’t have to strain anything so you literally get your juice ready in a few minutes.
- The materials are not as heavy-duty as those of other juicers in this list. The VonShef might last you a little less time. It’s great for beginners that might want to upgrade in a few years but definitely not as a ‘buy once use for a lifetime’ sort of machine.
Definitely the cheapest in this list but a very high-quality juicer. The motor is remarkably powerful and people have praised it time after time about being a lasting investment (although $50 are hardly a big investment in my book).
- The motor is 800 Watts. You can be damn sure it will get every last drop of juice even out of leafy greens or hard vegetables like carrots.
- The feed chute is large enough not to require a lot of chopping and the motor (as I mentioned) can definitely handle them well, too.
- It yields impressively large quantities of juice for a centrifugal juicer. Also, it seems not to push as much oxygen into the juice so the oxidation is a bit slower. Of course, it is still not a great idea to let the juice sit for more than a few minutes but the Hamilton Beach juicer definitely minimizes nutrient loss if you happen to do that.
- The spare parts are not as expensive as those for other juicer brands. Should anything break, you won’t have to pay near the price of the juicer for a spare part.
- The pulp bin is very large and you can hardly ever fill it up with just one batch. Well, maybe if you are making juice for 10+ people but I think it is safe to say that you will not be doing this too often.
- The screen can get a bit clogged up if you juice a lot of greens. That is why it’s best to juice kale, spinach, and other leafy greens first for best yield and easy efficient juicing.
Jack LaLanne juicers are a classic in the juicing community.
People re-purchase these bad boys all of the time and it is generally considered to be the best affordable juicer on the market. We don’t know about that last thing, but it is certainly among the best juicers under 100$ and here is why.
- It is extremely easy and convenient to clean up. Just throw it in the dishwasher and you are good to go. The parts are dishwasher safe and they assemble and disassemble super simple.
- Learning to use it takes less than 5 minutes. The instructions are very clear and there is hardly any getting used to the machine.
- Although the motor is just 250 Watts, the Jack LaLanne extracts juice very efficiently. It is one of the best small juicers in terms of efficiency and yield.
- The shoot is very large and there is virtually no chopping up veggies and fruits before you throw them in.
- It is fast but also super quiet. The Jack LaLanne is one of the rare cases where efficient extraction does not mean ridiculously noisy motor. You can’t hear it through a closed door and that is a definite advantage unless you live in a big house by yourself.
- Some of the products seem to stain the plastic. This tells me that the parts themselves are not made out of super sturdy plastic and it makes me wonder if using the dishwasher to clean them often will affect how long the juicer will ‘live’ in your kitchen.
