I used to have a juicer but found it was a waste of money. Unless you are really, really IN to making lots of juice daily, I say don't waste your money. I made a pretty good profit in the garage sale for it though, lol
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
Okay, the model is what I quoted, I bought from John Lewis as they were the only shop selling it, it cost about £90, but they are cheaper on line now, if you go to the link I set up, it's the white model in the middle of the picture, hope that helps
I have been thinking about buying a juicer. Does anyone have an opinion on a good moderate priced one and which type is the best? I won't need it for wheatgrass type things. Just veggies and fruit.
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.
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
