Even on a tight budget, it’s easy to start juicing for health. The Cheap Black & Decker JE2200B costs less than 50 bucks. In fact, on the Black and Decker website, they’re selling it for $29.99. If you compare the price on Amazon, you might be able to get an even better deal.
If you’re wondering why this juicer is cheaper than the Breville BJE200XL and the Hamilton Beach 67650, it’s because this one is less powerful. The motor is 400 watts. On one hand you might be thinking that less power is a bad thing. This juicer is slower than the other two. But slower speed means there’s going to be a smaller amount of heat being transferred to the juice.
The other big difference between this model and the Breville and Hamilton Beach budget juicers is that the Black & Decker has a narrower feeding tube. This is going to slow down the juicing process.
For the price, this is a decent juicer. If you have more money to spend, then you will be able to get a better machine. But if you’re looking for one of the cheapest centrifugal juicers that gets the job done, you won’t be disappointed with this one.
You can quite easily juice all sorts of fruits and veggies in this juicer. It’s best for apples, beets, carrots and other hard produce. It won’t juice leafy green vegetables very well. You don’t have to worry about taking the seeds out of apples but you sure will have to remove stones from peaches, nectarines and cherries if you want to juice them. Even though you can, it’s probably not a good idea to try and juice frozen fruits. The bottom line is that they’re not going to release much liquid. So it’s best to let them thaw out first.
