Lets get right to the Best Budget Juicers For $100 And Below!
Our top Pick!
The Breville Compact Juice Fountain comes in at the #1 spot for our picks for the best budget juicers for $100 and below. The Breville compact is a great entry level juicer and is the lowest price juicer offered by Breville. The juicers offered by Breville have a good reputation and you may be familiar with one of them which was used by Joe Cross in the movie Fat Sick and Nearly Dead. The Breville Compact is not that exact juicer, but is a good budget replacement and comes in at around $50 less than the Breville JE98XL Juice Fountain Plus 850-Watt Juice Extractor.
The overall reputation of Breville is not the only reason we chose this juicer to be our #1 choice for our best budget juicers $100 and below. At the time of this article the Breville Compact is rated by amazon.com as their #1 seller in the kitchen and dining category.
We also chose the Breville Compact, because of the amount of good reviews it has received. This cheap best selling juicer has the most reviews of any of the budget juicers we feature and has the highest ratio of happy customers to unhappy customers amongst these reviews. In general people seem to very satisfied with this juicer and you can read all of the reviews for yourself by following the links above for the Breville Compact and scrolling down to the bottom of the page.
The Breville compact has a small footprint which means it will take up less space on your counter than many other juicers will. This truly makes it compact and fits the name it uses. Cleanup is noted to be relatively painless as long as you do this soon after each use, and the juicer comes with a cleaning brush to help with the cleaning process.
The Breville Compact will allow you to feed whole pieces of fruit such as small apples, pears, peaches and so on into it. Larger apples and fruit of this sort will sometimes need to be quickly cut into four pieces to fit into the feed. This means less work to prepare your produce for juicing. Large pieces of fruit like melons and pineapple you would of course have to cut into different pieces, but this is the case with any juicer.
This juicer is not an ejection juicer so you will have to stop every once in awhile during your juicing to clean out the pulp. Breville makes this very easy to do though and it should not slow your juicing down to much.
The Breville Compact has a 1 year limited warranty.

#2. The L'Equip 306150 Mini Pulp Ejection Juicer, Gray $99.99
The L'Equip Mini Pulp-Ejection Juicer comes in at the #2 spot for our best budget juicers $100 and below. For $99.99 this juicer is a good choice and we chose it because it fills in some spaces that the Breville Compact lacks. If these extras are important to you then this juicer could be your best bet.
The first one of these extras is that the L 'Equip Mini is a pulp ejection juicer, which means it ejects the pulp so that you can collect it in a container. This allows you to continue juicing more so than with the breville compact so that you will not have to open the juicer up and clean it out as often.
We have seen this juicer in juice-offs versus the Breville JE98XL Juice Fountain Plus 850-Watt Juice Extractor which is around $50 more than the L 'Equip Mini and it has been considered by some to hold its own in those juice-offs. Overall though most do believe that the Breville $149.99 juicer edges the L 'Equip out in some categories. The fact that it has been compared by some to be in the same category as that juicer definitely helps it to fit into the $100 and below category.
The L 'Equip mini also has many good reviews and you can read them by following the links above and scrolling down to the bottom of the page. The L 'Equip has a 6 year limited warranty which is 6 times as long as the warranty that comes with the Breville Compact and this also played into part of our decision to include it here.
One of the downsides of this juicer is that in general you cannot feed whole pieces of fruit such as apples into it like you can with the Breville Compact. You will have to cut your apples up into smaller pieces, but with the fact that it is an ejection juicer, and the Breville Compact is not, this should for the most part level out these two when considering the time it takes to make a juice as a factor.
600-watt mini juicer for making healthy, freshly squeezed juice
Universal motor generates speeds up to 10,000 RPMs for fast, efficient results
Patented pulp-ejection system eliminates clogging; food chute with pusher
High-quality stainless-steel bowl, blade, and basket; dispensing spout
Measures 7-1/2 by 13-1/2 by 11-1/2 inches; 6-year limited warranty
A Personal Note:
Before we go into the #3 choice for our best budget juicers under $100 I do want to mention my opinion about juicers priced lower than $99. If I were recommending a juicer for under a $100 to a friend or family member, and they told me they only had $60 or so to spend at the most. I honestly would tell them to wait, save another $40 and buy one of the top 2 juicers that we talked about here. This is the same advise I am going to offer to you as well.
I believe that if you are planning on juicing for any period of time, then it will be worth it for you to spend the extra $40 and go with a better juicer. This is because generally speaking most juicers below $99 in my opinion not worth the money as they are known to have many issues and could break down, ceasing to work well before you have got your money's worth. We want to help you get the best for your money and honestly most juicers below $99 are just plain not worth investing your money into.
However, many people would either like to just try juicing out and put in a minimal investment up front or they know that they will not be able to afford a juicer for more than $60 and really just want to get started juicing right now.
For these people we spent quite a bit of time combing through all of the juicer choices that were below $99, trying to find one that would be the best above the rest. I went over many of these juicers and I finally decided that this was the one that best fit into this category.
Consumer reports rated this juicer as a "best buy" and it also has received a lot of good reviews from people who have tried it. Many have said that they have been very happy with this juicer and do not regret their purchase.
At the same time I must say that the ratio of unhappy reviews is a bit higher with this juicer than with the Breville Compact and the L 'Equip Mini, but this is to be expected as it is about $40 cheaper. Among all of the juicers that were in the same price range as the Hamilton Beach Big Mouth, I found this one to get the best overall reviews.
This juicer like the Breville Compact has a wider feed chute, meaning you can juice a lot of fruits and vegetables whole. This means there is less preparation time involved while juicing. This juicer is also an ejection juicer, which means it ejects the pulp out for you into a bin so that you can more easily dispose of it or use it however else you like. This gives you the best of both worlds and saves even more time that could be involved in cleaning out the juicer in between juicing more often.
The pulp that comes out of this juicer has been noted to be a bit wetter than the other 2 juicers mentioned above which makes sense as it is a more affordable juicer. This means that you are losing some of the juice in the process, but again if you are looking for a budget juicer or just wanting to give juicing a shot then this might work for you.
You can read reviews for this juicer by following the link above to the Hamilton Beach Big Mouth Pro Juice Extractor and scrolling to the bottom of the page.
