Best Masticating Juicer Under $100

If you’re on a budget but are looking for a good masticating juicer under $100 have I got some picks for you.

The juicers in this price range are all very similar, and will need to be treated with care. They are Chinese made juicers and are not as durable 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, you will be fine.

Let’s take a look at the best juicers under $100.

Juice Pro Masticating Juicer

The Juice Pro Masticating juicer looks very similar to the AMZCHEF Juicer (see my full review here) as was launched in June 2020.

It is priced well under $100 and is currently the number one new release masticating juicer on Amazon.

Here are the specifications:

  • Spin Speed – 80 revolutions per minute
  • Noise – 50-60 decibels
  • Reverse Function
  • 7 Segment hardened plastic auger
  • Motor – 150 watt
  • Weight – just under 10 pounds
  • Voltage 110-120V
  • Dimensions – 17.5 inches x 12.6 inches x 7.7 inches
  • BPA Free Plastic parts
  • Dishwasher safe parts

This is a basic little juicer that would be great for beginner juicers, or if you are an occasional juicer.

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

There is on, off and reverse – no fancy speeds, which really isn’t needed.

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

Coconut and Cane Sugar cannot be juiced with this machine.

Some consumers have complained it wasn’t the easiest to disassemble, however this is common with most new juicers. Once you assemble and disassemble the juicer more and more it will loosen up and get easier.

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 have an 10 year warranty on the motor and two year warranty on the parts.

Priced at well under $100 this represents excellent value in a juicer.

Here are the specs:

  • Spin Speed – 80 revolutions per minute
  • Noise – 60 decibels
  • Reverse Function
  • 7 Segment hardened plastic auger
  • Auto shut off function after 20 minutes of use
  • Motor – 150 watt
  • Weight – 10.03 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.

Megawise Slow Juicer

The Megawise Slow Juicer looks like an identical copy of the Koios Juicer.

But at $100 it’s cheaper than Koios and seems to offer the identical features.

Here are the specs:

  • Spin Speed – 50-110 revolutions per minute (2 spin speeds)
  • Noise – 50 decibels
  • Reverse Function
  • 9 Segment hardened plastic auger
  • Motor – 200 watt
  • Weight – 10.12 pounds
  • Voltage 120V
  • Dimensions – 15.86 inches x 11.46 inches x 9.29 inches
  • BPA Free plastic parts
  • Dishwasher safe parts

This juicer has a run time of 20 minutes, after which time it will need a rest.

There are two spin speeds for juicing hard and soft fruits and vegetables.

The soft setting is best for orange, melons, cucumbers (think anything that’s fairly juicy) and the hard setting is for carrots, beetroot and ginger.

The soft fruit setting spins the auger at 50 to 60 revolutions per minute and the hard fruit setting spins the auger at 100 to 110 revolutions per minute.

The feed chute is small, so you will need to cut up your fruits and vegetables into 2 to 3 inch pieces.

The juicing screen is crafted from 304 grade stainless steel for durability.

The only thing I couldn’t find was the warranty information. I will reach out to the seller and update this post when known.

Check it out on Amazon, which at the time of writing, users had given this Megawise Juicer 5 star reviews.

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 seem to juice as well as horizontal masticating juicers.

Having said that, most of the feedback on Amazon for this juicer 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 what you should be doing with a masticating juicer) 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 juicer from Costway for 2020.

Masticating and Citrus Juicer Combo

I really like the idea of a combination citrus juicer and masticating juicer.

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 juicer 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 juicer 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 juicer – some love it, some are looking for something better.

If you’re after a masticating juicer and citrus juicer combo, 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 this juicer won’t work for you.

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.

For example, the citrus juicer 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 juicer 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).
