Juicer

Looking for new juicer. Used to have breville years ago. Not sure about it nowadays.
Please advice.

I just did a quick search, and Bon Appetite seems to like the Breville.

I don't have any up to date advice on juicers. We were reasonably happy with a Braun juicer, back in the 1970s. Only thing we didn't like was the plastic mesh filter. The thing that caught the pulp and kept it out of the juice. It was a nuisance to wash and they broke and had to be replaced regularly. But, carrot juice, from the big, fat, extra sweet carrots was delightful.

I have a Green Life GF 1000. Twin gear, masticating, slow juicer, can do other things but I don't, and it works very well, with one caveat. The two masticating gears have timing marks, and it can be assembled for use with the timing marks misaligned...and break. Not for the mechanically disinclined.

Mark wanted a juicer so I bought him one for his birthday a few years ago. It got used once. Noisy, hard to clean, takes up too much space, too many parts.

Just given an Omega VRT350. I was told it quit running, if I could fix it it's mine. They put the top on wrong, it works fine. Just juiced a couple bunches of cilantro and some celery. As good a quality juice as my Green Star GS1000, dry pulp, easier to clean, smaller footprint.
