I have found that if you leave the juicer out on the worktop, you tend to use it, it's a bit like bread maker machines, if you put it away in the cupboard it becomes redundant, I leave it out now so we both use it everyday

Thanks Les!

I have one juicer I use for citrus. It looks like this one.

One I use for when I get lots of free fruit like gunny sacks of apples, etc. It is a Mehu Maija steam juicer.

And one for small amounts of juicing. A Champion juicer with an optional grain mill.

And I do have several Kitchenaid citrus juicers.

The luster of shiny new appliances can't compete with the virtues of Vintage: namely durability, simplicity, superior cooking and a cool retro look. http://leoladyshousecollectiblesandg....blogspot.com/

A couple of my aunts have a Jack Lalanne juicer - it sits on their counter and is used nearly everyday. But, they have a garden so they don't have to pay the higher prices for veggies at the store ... and one of my aunts is a "food chemist" (she reads all kinds of health magazines and is constantly changing the formula of her juice mixture based on the latest article).

I thought about getting one ... but then I slapped myself in the forehead and said .... "I could have a V8!"

I bought the Jack Lalanne Pro. It works very well but it is not for me. What I really needed to do was buy a killer blender. I am not paying $30.00 to send it back. I guess I will put it on Craig's list and see if a serious juicer will want it.

Black & Decker at Walmart for ~$40

I bought a BnD at WM for around $40. Just make sure the waste bin is plugged in all the way or it won't start. Its quieter than the Juiceman Jr I used to have but the hole is smaller and I have to cut carrots in 1/2. I like to do romain lettuce and carrots first thing in the AM. The more green the better. I do 2 heads of romain lettuce and about 10 or so carrots. It makes about 1 quart. The green stuff is what picks you up and the carrots just make it not so harsh. Its like spinach to Popeye. I drink it over a period of about 2 hours (I take it to work) and I'm not hungry for the rest of the day, have plenty of energy and don't need any coffee. Not hungry means I don't get tired. I do have temptations when I go by a fast food rest. and smell something cooking. The other thing I do is cantelope and blueberries. If you can juice for 3 days without anything else like burgers or fries, and just drink water, its a good way to detoxify. After the 1st day the hunger pains go away. That's easy for me to say.Dan
