Juicers are expensive because they’re a luxury item. They can cost hundreds of dollars, and many people don’t see the value in them. If you juice every day, then it might be worth it for you to invest in one that will last you years. But if juicing is something that you only do occasionally, then there may not be enough payoff to warrant spending so much money on a machine.

Why are Juicers so expensive?
This is a great question! There are many reasons why juicers can cost hundreds of dollars to over $1000. One reason maybe because of the rate at which people are buying juicers, but not using them. One reason maybe because of the ease and convenience. For example, you can make a glass of juice in 5 minutes flat; faster than it takes to run down to a juice bar to order one for about $4…
people don’t buy juicers. They buy a lifestyle, and they don’t mind spending the money to get it. If you haven’t watched the documentary “Fat Sick & Nearly Dead” then I suggest you do so now. So, we have all these people buying juicers but they don’t know how to use them or clean them or store them. So they are stuck with a $400 paperweight, and not a lifestyle…
I’ve been using the same juicer for over 2 years now. Before that I was like everyone else; excited at first, but then it went to the back of the kitchen cabinet (that’s what she said) and I forgot about it.
Types of Juicers with various price ranges and features.
If you are considering buying a juicer, then hopefully this article will help you make a decision.
I have few types of juicers and I have used them all at one time or another.
This is the type that most people think of when they hear “juicer”. It makes juice by shredding ingredients in a rapidly spinning basket and because the juice is forced out by the spinning, this type is often called “high speed”. The drawback of centrifugal juicers is that they heat up the juice.
This type uses a single auger to squeeze the juice from produce. It works similarly to chewing food which reduces it to a pulp and then squeezes out the juice. This type is often called “cold press” because as long as the auger is rotating, no heat will form in the process.
This is a combination of masticating and twin gear. The make-up of this juicer is two interlocking screws that crush the produce as it passes between them. This type can often be referred to as “triple cold press” because no heat is created in the juicing process.

If you don’t have the money to spend, buy one of these types of juicers because they’re inexpensive and work great.
This type uses a fast-moving blade that shreds produce into small chunks as it is pressed through a strainer or screen. The juice is then separated from the pulp by a strainer basket and cloth. This is the cheapest juicer type.
These juicers come in two types: the clamp or “press” type and the screw type. The first requires you to manually turn a handle that screws down onto produce for juice extraction. These are the cheapest of all juicer types but are also slow, messy, and difficult to clean.
Also known as “cold press” juicers, these have a pair of plastic gears covered with mesh screens and can accommodate whole fruits and vegetables. They slowly rotate the produce against a shredder plate to extract the juice.
A motor spins the strainer basket while pressing the pulp through. This allows you to continuously feed produce into the juicer without stopping to remove pulp.
It’s important to find the right Juicer for your needs and budget.
I want to start off by saying that I am in love with my juicer, and I think it is one of the best investments I have ever made. I researched many kinds of juicers before settling on this particular one. I was very picky in my research (much more so than usual). It took me a long time to decide, but I am very happy with my decision.
In order for you to be able to make an informed purchase decision, it is important that you are aware of all the different types of juicers and their pros & cons.
Buying a high-quality Juicer will make it longer maintenance than cheaper juicers.
After all, who wants to buy a new appliance every couple of years? You will want the best value for your money, so a long-lasting product is an excellent investment.
While there are many different kinds of juicers (centrifugal, masticating, etc.), I have chosen to focus on the centrifugal juicer, since it is the one I use and it seems to be most popular. First of all, we should talk about what a juicer actually does: It extracts juice from vegetables and fruits by pressing or grinding them against a mesh with small holes (a strainer), which separates the juice from the pulp.
Juicers are one of the most expensive appliances you can buy. With a little research, we found that it costs an average of $200 to purchase a juicer and then another $60 for every year’s worth of produce- which is why many people never end up using their juicer. So what makes them so pricey? It turns out that there are three main factors driving the price point on these machines: warranty, quality, and durability. The more generous your warranty policy is (and longer), the higher quality materials used in manufacturing, and how long they last will increase the cost as well as demand for such products. Let us know if you want some help finding a new or refurbished model with all those features.
