Juiceman Juicers became popular during the 1990's with Jay the "Juice Man" Kordich featuring in late night TV infomercials.
All indications are that the juicer seems to be still going strong. Regular updates of jucer features are keeping this juicer brand competitive today.
Two models are available. The Junior which sells at $99, and the Professional coming in at $179.
When compared to models in their price range the one differentiating factors we noticed first was the versatility of these juicers.
We say this is because we found that theses juicers can process:
This fact is very impressive when it comes to comparable models in the under $200 price range.
When compared to juicers in their respective below $100 price range this juicers has a surprising number of features and functions which include the:
This range of features is usually only available on more expensive models.
Another good first impression made by this Juiceman juicer is the fact that it is made from stainless steel material. This is another differentiating feature amongst juicers in this price range.
As health and fitness proponents we believe juicers should always be displayed on kitchen counter tops. If your juicer looks good you will gladly do this.
Juicers in the below $100 price range usually have white plastic housing whaich are stained by colorful produce like carrots and beets.
The result is that they become unsightly and hidden in cupboards.
This stainless steel juicer, is a rarity in the below $100 price range.
Personally we are not really impressed with the LCD display screens because we simply do not really see a great practical value with it.

Because this is a centrifugal juicer, it is easy to take apart and clean when compared to the more complicated single and twin gear, and masticating style juicers.
The parts are all dishwasher safe.
For an under $100 model the variety of produce that the Juiceman Juicer Jr JM400 handles is impressive.
Many juicers we review in this price range are poor at juicing soft fruits, leafy greens and citrus fruits.
The Juiceman Jr seems to handle this wide range of produce with relative ease.
The 700 watts motor explains why this juicer can process such a wide range of produce
Compare this with some of the other low power juicers that you find in this price range (i.e the Jack Lalanne juicers with is 250 Watt motor) who struggle with the hard vegetables.
The only comparable competitor in this price range is the Breville compact which also has a 700 watts motor.
Any concerns that we have in terms of the Juiceman juicers?
We have noticed some complaints regarding the issue of replacement parts for these juicers.
These concerns relate to periodic out of stocks situations and slow response times from suppliers.
Who should be looking at the Juiceman Jr Juicer?
This is an excellent juicer for the budget-minded shoppers looking to buy a juicer to start out with their juicing regimen.
Serious juice enthusiasts may rather want to look the Omega or Green Star juicer options.
The Juiceman Juicer Pro has several upgrades to the Jr version.
