Creating delicious fresh juice at home can be done on a budget. Some great masticating juicers are available for under $200, giving the big brands a run for their money.
As technology improves, new juicers are being produced for vertical and horizontal masticating juicers that offer cutting-edge design, excellent warranties, and as much functionality as you would find in a top-of-the-line juicer. The prices are getting cheaper too.
So, let’s get juicing, save money, and find the best juicer under $200.
Best Juicer Under $200 - The List
A compact and stylish juicer by Ninja, the NeverClog JC151 model comes with two juicing screens to control the pulp you want in your juice.
I love the big holes in the orange screen for letting through lots of pulp! This is great if you like to make pulpy orange juice or add extra fiber to your juices.
All parts are dishwasher safe (top rack), making clean-up a breeze. It is easy to assemble, and despite the small footprint and lightweight design, it still feels like a quality juicer. I wouldn’t expect anything less from the Ninja brand.
The biggest pro for me, however, was the dry pulp – for such a small and inexpensive juicer, the pulp was amazingly dry, especially with citrus fruits.
Unfortunately, it doesn’t come with a cleaning brush, but that’s not a deal breaker for me. An old toothbrush works wonders here. Also, the 1-year warranty is less than other juicers on this list.
The included recipe book makes up for both of the above things, including recipes for leftover pulp (hello, homemade granola!) and three different green juice recipes.
This juicer is new to the market, released in March 2023. The price is well under $200, making it a fantastic buy.
I was pleasantly surprised when I came across Jocuu, which I started featuring on my best juicer lists in 2020!
I’m pleased to report that in 2023, The Jocuu juicer is still a leading choice for a masticating juicer under $200.
Jocuu also offers a 10-year warranty on the motor and a three-year parts warranty on this juicer.
There are two juicing speeds for soft and hard fruits and a 7-segment spiral auger. Jocuu has also created three shredding attachments for the juicer, which you can buy together in a bundle, along with the juicer. These include:
- Coarse shredder
- Fine shredder
The Jocuu juicer is fitted with a safety device and will stop operating after 20 minutes of continuous running. It pulls apart at one press of a button, making setting up and cleaning up a breeze. The removable parts are also dishwasher-safe.
The price vs. value Jocuu is an excellent choice for masticating juicers under $200.
The AMZChef Juicer features on a few of my lists and have done for the past few years. They’re inexpensive, have 11 color combinations to compliment your kitchen decor, and have a 2-year warranty.
The standout features of this masticating juicer include:
- Suitable for juicing hard and soft fruits and vegetables, including leafy greens
- Replacement parts available to buy on Amazon
- Extra accessories also available to buy, such as a meat grinder or (my favorite) food slicer and shredder attachment
- Quiet operation – operating at 60 decibels
- Dishwasher-friendly parts
- Beginner friendly – turn it on, off or reverse
- Excellent customer service by AMZChef
AMZChef makes a few different models of masticating juicers. You can read my full AMZChef Juicer Review here. Alternatively, take a look at the juicer itself at the following stores:
If your budget allows, take a look at the AMZChef Dual Speed juicer as well. It is around $15 more expensive than the one-speed version featured above but has low-speed and high-speed juicing functions to get the most juice out of hard and soft fruits and vegetables.
Slightly larger than the single-speed juicer, the soft mode runs at 50-60 rpm, a slower rate to extract more juice from juicy fruits such as oranges, lemons, limes, watermelon, ripe pears, and berries.
The hard mode juices at 100-110 rpm, almost double the speed of munching at carrots, apples, celery, beetroot, and other hard veggies.
If you like to make raw sweet potato juice, follow the medical medium juicing regime, or like to juice a variety of produce, a variable speed juicer will help to extract more juice from different fruits.
All the other features are similar to the smaller model, including the quiet 60 decibels, 2-year warranty, dishwasher-friendly parts, and the ability to buy replacement parts and accessories. The colors are more limited but still stylish, with 5 color choices.

If you have bench clearance and prefer a vertical masticating juicer, look at the nutribullet. With a wide 3-inch chute, you can place whole apples and larger chunks of vegetables in the chute. The auger is short and fat, rather than long and skinny, and spins at a slow 65rpm to extract the maximum amount of juice possible from your produce.
The auger is steel tipped for durability, and while you can put most parts in the dishwasher for cleaning – handwash the auger. The NutriBullet vertical juicer is equipped with safety features such as:
- Motor pauses when you open the 3-inch chute lid
- Auto shut off if the motor overheats
Replacement parts are available to buy if needed, and a handy brush is included to help clean the screen. Tip – turn the brush around and use the end to clear out the pulp chute! You can find the NutriBullet masticating juicer here:
The Aumate Fretta Juicer got my attention as it is a 200-watt juicer with a large 3.5-inch feed chute. Most juicers in this class have around 150 watts of power.
There are two juicing speeds for soft and hard fruits, but in all honesty, they’re not much different. The soft speed runs at 85-100rpm, and the hard speed is slightly higher at 95-110rpm. There is also a reverse function.
If you get frustrated with the “slowness” of masticating juicers and the prep time of smaller chutes, the Aumate juicer could be a good choice. It is a new release for 2023 and has excellent feedback to date.
It is recommended to juice continuously for no longer than 10 minutes, and after 20 minutes, the juicer will turn itself off for rest.
Unlike some of the other juicers on this list, you can’t put the Fretta parts in the dishwasher, so be prepared for a 5-minute handwash when you are done juicing. A handy cleaning brush is included to help clear the screen.
At 10 pounds in weight, this juicer is sturdy without being overbearing. You can choose from black, silver, or red to match your kitchen. Check it out here:
If you are new to juicing, want to make large batches of juice quickly, or prefer a centrifugal juicer over a masticating one, Breville is an excellent choice.
This brand has been around for years, with quality Italian-made components.
Remember you won’t get the same juice yield and the pulp will be far more moist than with a masticating juicer. It doesn’t juice leafy greens well (no centrifugal juicer does), so if you’re looking to make green juice this isn’t the best choice.
But if you want to power through a box of apples or a huge bag of carrots, the Breville Juice Fountain is impressive.
Clean up is easy with the included brush for the juicing filter; otherwise, pop the parts in the top rack of the dishwasher. You’ll also find two spin speeds to accommodate harder fruits like carrots and apples and soft fruits like oranges.
I’m going out on a limb here because the Omega Nutrition Centre 900 Series Juicers are not normally under $200. However, when updating this post (April 2023), the black model was on sale and under $200.
Omega makes juicers under $200 to appeal to the entry-level juicing market, and honestly, they’re underwhelming. There are several Omega models I could have put on this list that were under $200, but if you bought them, you’d be disappointed. That’s why they’re not featured here.
But when it comes to the slightly more expensive Omega models, you get a major upgrade, including a 15-year warranty and much more functionality from your juicer – such as making nut butter, breadsticks, nut milk, sorbets, and more.
Note: This could be on sale because it is not a BPA-free juicer.
If that doesn’t bother you, check it out below – hopefully, the price is still under $200!
How to Choose the Best Juicer Under $200
When choosing a juicer that fits within your budget of $200 or less, it is important to consider several factors. These features will help you select a high-quality juicer that will serve you well in the long term.
Selecting a juicer that can extract the maximum amount of juice from your fruits and vegetables in a single extraction is essential. The Ninja NeverClog is my choice for the best juice yield from the juicers on this list.
The horsepower of the juicer engine is another crucial factor to consider. If you plan to juice frequently, choosing a juicer with a powerful engine is recommended. However, if you juice less frequently, a moderate engine will suffice.
When selecting a masticating juicer, a lower horsepower is okay since they are slow yet effective. I’d still recommend you choose at least 150 watts, mainly if you are juicing hard vegetables like carrots, which could strain the motor.
Centrifugal juicers should have at least 700 watts. The Breville Juice Fountain has 850 watts of power.
All masticating juicers on this list are at least 150 watts, the Aumate Fretta having the most powerful 200-watt motor.
The durability of the juicer is a crucial factor to consider. Choosing a juicer made of sturdy material that can withstand frequent use is important.
Most juicers on this list have plastic components; after all, you are looking at budget juicers. It’s great when you can find replacement parts, however, which you can for many of the brands I’ve featured on this list.
The key to durability and longevity is not to overload your juicer. Take it slow and let the machine do the work – I often see videos of people shoving handfuls of produce into cheap masticating juicers and then using the pusher to cram it all in! They wonder why the pulp isn’t dry, or the housing breaks…
Ease of Use (and Easy to Clean)
If a juicer isn’t easy to use or clean, you probably won’t use it much. Some of the juicers on this list have single speeds, and others have dual speeds.
All are easy to use, requiring varying prep levels regarding chute size and how small you need to chop your produce. Be prepared to chop fruits and vegetables into 2-inch pieces – even those celery stalks that you can fit whole into the juicing chute.
While handwashing your juicer parts will be best for them long term, some juicers under $200 have dishwasher-safe parts.
Just remember to turn on the dishwasher after juicing and don’t leave them sitting there all day – dried pulp is very hard to get off juicing screens and will negatively affect your juice yield!
The Final Verdict
If I’ve overwhelmed you with this list of juicers under $200, here is a recap of my choices:
- Ninja JC151 NeverClog – Best New Release, Best for Pulp Control in the juice and Dry Pulp
- Jocuu – Best warranty, extra attachments for multipurpose use
- AMZChef – The Dual Speed is my preferred choice, best for all-around juicing, easy to clean
- NutriBullet Vertical Juicer – Durable steel tipped auger, good safety features
- Aumate Fretta – Best power with a 200W motor, handwash only
- Breville Juice Fountain – Best Centrifugal, Best for fast juicing, dishwasher-safe parts
- Omega NC900HBK19 – Best Omega, Best Warranty overall, not BPA free.
