If you've even so much as peeked at the juicer market, you've no doubt noticed that these babies don't come cheap: about 42% of electric multipurpose juicers cost over $200, and the average price for a juicer is just around $200. Blenders, in comparison, cost $135 on average with only 22% costing over $200; and blenders offer more versatility as well.
So if you're not looking to spend an arm and a leg on a juicer, or if you're just experimenting and not even sure you'll like juicing, you're probably asking yourself: is it possible to get a great product for cheap?
Well, sort of. It depends how cheap.

Under $200:
Definitely. You can find a spectacular juicer for around $130-$170. This price range includes a variety of juicers, both masticating and centrifugal, by a variety of brands including Omega, Breville and L'Equip.

Under $100:
A few. In this price range you should expect to find only centrifugal juicers and citrus juicers. Juicers in this price range have significantly lower scores for customer satisfaction, but receive higher-than-average value ratings. Several Juiceman and Big Boss models are available in this price range.

Under $50:
That's a stretch. The pickings are very slim in this price range to begin with, and overall you're looking at below-average products. Users report that juicers in this price range are of lesser quality and are harder to use and clean. Depending on your needs, however, you may find that these juicers will be sufficient. If it's a once-in-a-while appliance that won't get frequent use, it's really a shame to spend more.
