When you’re looking for a juicer under $100 it will be a centrifugal model. This is the type of juicer most people start out with. It contains a spinning disc which tears and shreds produce to extract the juice.

There’s no doubt about it, the juicing market is exploding and expanding in every direction. Movies like “Fat, Sick & Nearly Dead” have sparked a juicing renaissance and in 2015 there is more choice than ever in the juicing world.

The number of home juicers being sold is on the rise and many new brands and models of juicer are appearing. Juicer prices are falling as companies compete for market share. Good news for us juicers because we end up paying less but sometimes more choice makes it harder to make decisions.

It’s the same when it comes to juicing books. There seems to be a new juicing book out each week and many people are publishing their own juicing books on platforms like Amazon Kindle and the Apple Book Store. However, sometimes you just want a good old-fashioned paper book that you can pick up and read.

The 20 Best Selling Juicers

When you’re buying a juicer you may want to consider this list of the top selling juicers on Amazon. This list was compiled from juicers sold in the United States. If you’re in another country some of these models may not be available.

Please remember that just because a juicer sells in large quantities doesn’t mean it’s a great juicer. Cheaper models often make it into the top seller lists because more people buy cheaper models than expensive ones. You should always check the rating and reviews before parting with your hard earned money and always buy the best juicer you can afford.

There are still however, some great masticating juicers on this list like the Omega J8006 and Omega VRT350, both of which I personally recommend.
