Mine is a $35 one from Wal-Mart, Black & Decker I believe, and has been used regularly for a couple years. Not the best, but it does the job well and leaves me with a dry pulp and good juice. Juice has to be consumed within hours however.

It is those expensive ones that use different extraction methods that allows the juice to be stored for longer period without losing their nutritional value.

I use Breville 800JEXL.I can make a liter of juice in about a minute. The large chute means I can toss everything in whole and with the 1000 Watt motor this can juice a bag of carrots, several apples and an entire stalk of lettuce put in whole in seconds with the shredder spinning at 13,000 rpm. I bought this for home and it would be fantastic for a health food restaurant of juice bar. For the fantastic quality and rugged construction you are get far more for your money than any other juicer on the market. It's worth a lot more than I paid for it and this juicer deserves more than 5 stars (far far superior to my top of the line all stainless ACME juicer). I make juice every morning and there is nothing so easy and fast to use.

I do beets all the time, but they are potent to your system. Beets must be peeled before juicing. They will also permanently stain your juicer, so don't try to remove that color by washing.

And, if you use more than 1-2 small beets, you will be reminded later when you go to the bathroom.

The mix I juiced when I went through treatment for hepatitis c included beets, beet greens and fresh ginger root, among other veggies. I washed the beets but didn't peel anything. Used a Champion juicer. Worked just fine.

I've only just joined this Forum hence the delay in responding to this thread.

Regarding pulp residue - fruit residue can be added to cakes, muffins, or any desert where you use cooked fruit. I like cold fruit soups in the summer and add the residue from juicing fruit in those. I've even added it to fruit sorbets and smoothies, for extra fibre/bulk.

Vegetable residue can be added to soups, stews, casseroles, and suchlike.

Regarding washing juicers - I always put a bowl of hot water in the sink when I'm juicing, and as soon as the juice is made I dismantle the juicer and put it straight in the bowl of water.

That way nothing gets caked on and cleaning is a breeze.

I use a vita-mix. Love it since you don't waste so much produce. Please using nearly all of the fruit or vegetable also means you get more fiber. I have tried many other juicers and don't like the clean up or produce waste.
