CalmDo Cold Press Juicer – Top Choice for Best Juicer Under $100

CalmDo masticating juicer first appeared on my list of best juicers under $200 but I’m pleased to see in 2021 this cold press juicer just sneaks in under $100!

My favorite part of this machine in comparison to other masticating juicers is the use of a ceramic auger instead of toughened plastic. This is particularly good if you enjoy juicing carrots but have had a hard time with other masticating juicers and needed to do a lot of prep.

The CalmDo juicing machine has the qualities of other high end juicers without the expensive price tag. There is a sorbet screen included to make fruit based sorbets or ice cream. You don’t need to worry about choosing a speed as the motor is self adapting and will speed up or slow down based on the hardness of the produce added.

CalmDo advertise that you can use the ceramic auger juicer for sugarcane! I am a little blown away at this, it is rare to see juicers in the $100 price range have the ability to juice sugarcane.

Here are the specifications:

  • Spin Speed – 70 revolutions per minute
  • Noise – 50-60 decibels
  • Reverse Function
  • 7 Segment Ceramic auger
  • Motor – 140 watt
  • Weight – 7.1 pounds
  • Voltage 110-120V
  • Dimensions – 14.6 inches x 6.7 inches x 13.6 inches
  • BPA Free Plastic parts
  • Dishwasher safe parts

This is a basic little juicer that would be great for beginners, or if you like to juice occasionally.

The chute is fairly small on this design, so you will need to cut your fruits and vegetables up into 2-3 inch pieces.

The CalmDo juicer is suitable for harder vegetables such as beetroot, ginger and carrots. Softer fruits such as oranges will juice well.

Consumer feedback has been excellent with most users advising the machine is easy to use, easy to clean, compact and doesn’t clog.

Orfeld Slow Masticating Juicer

Keeping well under the $100 price range is the Orfeld Slow Masticating Juicer. It was released late July 2020 and so far has 4.8 out of 5 star reviews. (NB: If you have a little more money to spend, check out the Orfeld Wide Chute Juicer here)

This juicer has two settings (hard and soft) for harder vegetables like beetroot or carrot and softer fruits and veggies like oranges.

Here are the specifications for the Orfeld Juicer:

  • Spin Speed – 80 revolutions per minute
  • Noise – 60 decibels
  • Reverse Function
  • 7 Segment hardened plastic auger
  • 304 Grade Stainless Steel casing and juicing screen
  • Overload protection function
  • Motor – 150 watt
  • Weight – 10.88 pounds
  • Voltage 110-120V
  • Dimensions – 15.5 x 12.4 x 7.8 inches
  • BPA Free Plastic parts
  • Dishwasher safe parts

There is an auto shut off feature to this machine which protects the motor. If the juicer is overloaded or overheats, it will automatically shut off until cool.

You can use this juicer for up to 20 minutes at a time before needing to give it a rest.

Backed by a 12 month warranty, there really isn’t anything I can fault with this budget juicer. Check it out on Amazon here, or the button above.

Jocuu Slow Masticating Juicer

I’ve been talking about Jocuu Juicers for some time now, because they used to have a 10 year warranty on the motor and two year warranty on the parts. I’ve noticed with this Jocuu Juicer, the warranty is reduced to 4 years on the motor.

When I first added the Jocuu Juicer to this list it was under $100. At the time of writing, it has had a slight price increase, but I am going to leave it on this list. I feel that this price still represents excellent value. I may also be a little in love with the soft teal blue color.

Here are the specs:

  • Spin Speed – 60 – 80 revolutions per minute (soft/hard)
  • Noise – 60 decibels
  • Reverse Function
  • 7 Segment hardened plastic auger
  • Operating time – 10 minutes
  • Motor – 150 watt
  • Weight – 10.53 pounds
  • Voltage 120V
  • Dimensions – 16.77 inches x 13.11 inches x 8.03 inches

I have a full review of Jocuu Juicers which you can find here, which includes another Jocuu machine which is priced under $100. It is not my preferred choice however, when comparing the two Jocuu Juicers. If you are firm on your $100 budget is it worthwhile taking a look.

Here is the link to the Jocuu Masticating Juicer under $100 on Amazon:

Cirago Masticating Juicer

I’m sneaking the Cirago Dual Speed Masticating Juicer onto the best juicer under $100 list, because at the time of writing, it is priced just under $100. This is a special deal at the time of updating this post (March 2021), but hopefully sticks around. Here are the specs:

  • Spin Speed – 80 revolutions per minute
  • Noise – 60 decibels
  • Weight – 10.28 pounds
  • Dimensions – 15.75 inches x 11.97 inches x 7.83 inches
  • Dishwasher safe removable parts
  • Soft and Hard Speed Settings
  • Reverse Function

The Cirago juicer is a natural choice for me because it comes with two speeds, reverse function and a 2 year warranty. Cirago make it easy to choose the speeds also – it’s not high and low or one and two; the speed choices are soft fruits and hard fruits and veggies. Think, squishy orange vs hard carrot.

The 304 grade stainless steel filter is tough and durable. Juicers of this design are also extraordinarily easy to clean with the removable parts disconnecting from motor unit at the click of a button.

Most common consumer feedback on the Cirago juicer is it is quiet, sturdy and works well for celery. Check it out on Amazon here.

Vertical Juicers Under $100

IKICH bring us this vertical masticating juicer, also priced well under $100.

Here are the specs:

  • Spin Speed – 64 revolutions per minute
  • Noise – 58 decibels
  • Motor – 200 watt
  • Weight – 6.74 pounds
  • Voltage 110-120V
  • Dimensions – 17.2 inches x 10 inches x 7.6 inches
  • Reverse Function

Personally, I am not a huge fan of vertical masticating juicers. I have one, and it just doesn’t juice as well as horizontal masticating juicers.

Having said that, most of the feedback on Amazon for the Ikich machine has been positive. The biggest negative was the juicer was not as quiet as the user thought it should have been, and cleaning the pulp chute can be difficult.

Owning a vertical juicer, I can sympathize with both these things. I use a butter knife to get the pulp out of the chute, and as far as noise goes, there are no conversations happening whilst juicing.

I like that this juicer comes with a 2 year warranty. The vertical design with the larger auger also allows for a lower spin speed.

The maximum operating time for this juicer is 10 minutes, then it will need to rest for 30 minutes. That’s a bit disappointing, especially given the Orfield juicer above can operate for double that time.

This juicer wouldn’t be my first choice out of the list of juicers under $100, but if you’d like to check it out further on Amazon, click here.

Costway Vertical Juicer

I encourage everyone to watch this video below of the Costway vertical juicer in action for two reasons:

  1. Look how small the user is cutting up the celery and carrot (this is how you should prep your fruits and veggies) and;
  2. Look how dry that pulp is!

This might just be a vertical juicer I like! Here are the specs:

  • Spin Speed – 80 revolutions per minute
  • Noise – 60 decibels
  • Motor – 200 watt
  • Weight – 7.5 pounds
  • Voltage 120V
  • Dimensions – 13 inches x 12 inches x 9 inches
  • Reverse Function
  • Stainless Steel Finish

This is an upgraded vertical masticating juicing machine from Costway released in 2020.

Masticating and Citrus Juicer Combo

I really like the idea of a combination citrus and masticating juicer. And you don’t need to pull apart the machine to use the citrus function either.

Many a time have I cursed cutting peel off oranges and lemons before juicing.

With the Dorini 2 in 1 juicer, you get a citrus and a masticating juicer, all for under $100.

Here are the specs:

  • Spin Speed – 80 revolutions per minute (for the masticating juicer)
  • Noise – 59 decibels
  • Motor – 150 watt masticating juicer, 35 watt citrus juicer
  • Weight – 13.92 pounds
  • Voltage 110-120V
  • Dimensions – 17.4 inches x 12.2 inches x 11.2 inches
  • 2 year warranty

At first glance the auger for the masticating juicer doesn’t look as grooved as the other masticating juicers reviewed above. This is something that could impact the juice yield.

The citrus attachment comes with two sizes cones – a larger cone for oranges and grapefruit and a smaller cone for lemons and limes.

Like the other juicers, you can use this machine for up to 20 minutes before it will need a break.

There’s mixed reviews about this machine – some love it, some are looking for something better. If you’re after a masticating and citrus juicer combo for under $100, I’d say give it a go, but be patient.

Cut up your fruits and veggies into small pieces and don’t push too much through at once. If you follow my advice, I see no reason why you wouldn’t enjoy juicing with this machine.

Check it out on Amazon here.

Conclusion

These are all great juicers for less than $100 and choosing a winner is a hard choice! It really comes down to personal preference when shopping for juicers under $100.

The juicers in this price range are all very similar, and will need to be treated with care. They are Chinese made and not as robust as their more expensive counterparts. If you cut up your fruits and vegetables into small pieces and don’t feed through in too much bulk, these juicers will work well.

For example, the citrus and masticating juicer combo is a great choice if you like to juice citrus regularly. The citrus function will save a lot of prep time in peeling citrus fruits.

The Jocuu machine that is under $100 has a 10 year warranty on the motor, so I would expect that this juicer will last for a long time if cared for correctly.

Orfeld juicers give great yield and are getting rave reviews on Amazon (particularly the slightly more expensive wide chute retro juicers).

The CalmDo juicer with the ceramic auger and sorbet screen competes with higher priced juicing machines and just sneaks in under budget. If you enjoy freezing your fruits and making homemade sorbet this is a great choice.

Here are the juicers again in a table format for your consideration:
