fiber is what's lost by separating juice from pulp. better juicers extract more of the juice, leaving a drier pulp. Norwalk excels at this. I have a friend who uses a Norwalk juicer, and her horses won't even eat the pulp. there's nothing left in it. Her juicer cost her about $2,300 us. i also have a VitaMix 5000, and what it makes is puree. If I add water or some other liquid as it runs, the end products is more like juice and contains all the fiber, nothing is thrown out. it is drinkable.

We have a Breville juicer and it has been great!

All I really need is love, but a little chocolate now and then doesn't hurt

However, Google shows quite a lot of brands and models available in North America, Europe, and Asia, so I'm lost at what to look at

I saw those brands recommended and would like some feedback/additions:

Breville | Choose Your Country (USA)

Norwalk (USA)
Norwalk Juicers - Home

Angel (Korea)

Omega (Korea)
Official Omega Site | Omega Juicers

Magimix (France)
Magimix Petit lectromnager culinaire

Thank you.
I have a Philips. It's very messy and the juice comes out with a very thick foam on top which doesn't dissipate with standing. I wouldn't buy it again
