Juice makers

Need a sugestion for a good one. Something that can make grape juice or orange, carrot or tomato juice. Something Universal. No pulp in the end product, can't stand it. Peeling shouldn't be required. Something really-really reliable. Money is important, but I am willing to spend more on something good. Internet gives million options, but which one is really good of course is a mistery.

Common folks, out of thousand of people there is only one answer... Nobody else has or had a juicer in the past or present? Unbelivable.

Charlie, I don't have one either (no fruit trees in my backyard in MN, hehe). What I have heard is that Vita Mix juicers are excellent. I think they are somewhat pricey.

Otter is right, Vita Mix is good, but you will have to strain your juice.

Nope, I've never had a juicer. I want one but if I buy anything else for the kitchen it will fall off the back of the house

I wish I could help you Charlie. I used a juicer when I used to work at Orange Julius, but don't know the brand. I have never owned one.

Hey GB, you are up late, how was your Seder or Sedorim? Mine were not that great, the food was horrible we went to our Rabbi and his wife who is a very good cook just completely ruined everything. Brisket was so tough you couldn’t even bite into it and chicken was altogether so undercooked that I was afraid to eat it.



Sorry for off topic everybody. Though not completely. Passover is precisely a reason why I need the juice maker. I don't use anything processed during that time and it would be nice to have some juice, for kids at least.

Our first sedar was horrible. The food was great and the company was great, but the guy who let the service did a horrible job. He was trying to make jokes and make it funny. He used crude language. He also dragged it out for hours. The second night was much better. My father let the service that night and he did a more traditional service. we took turns reading from the Hagada and he would tell us interesting thing he has learned from the many classes he has been taking on Judaism. We had great brisket (my mom always makes the best) and very good turkey. I made roasted root veggies that came out quite well, plus there were a million other side dishes that were very good. My grandparents came in from FL so that made it all the more special. They were able to spend time with their first great grandchild and it was also the first sedar I have spent with them in a long long time.
