Question Does Anyone use a juicer?

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.

Hi there,
We've been using Jack Lalanne's Cl-003AP juicer for 3 years now, found it to be an excellant purchase. We use everyday, it will juice most fruits & veggies, taking off the skin at the same time. Very quick, efficient, & hard wearing. One tip: there is a receptical provided for collecting the peel & pith etc, we just put a throw-away bag in its place, then there's no mess or washing up for that . Just make sure it's dishwasher safe.
Here's a link that may help:

Do you wash the items before you juice? When I juice carrots, normally I scrub before I throw them in juicer. Have very old juicer.

I wanted fresh lemon juice for my meal last night. So I took a lemon, cut a hole in the end with a cross-hair cut and put some muscle into the squeeze, Arnold Schwarzenegger style. I used a hand juicer when I lived at a place with an orange tree, fresh REAL orange juice is so delicious. I can not afford kitchen appliances so I have to do everything old-fashioned like.

Hi Les, I looked over the website but they don't give the model numbers. They have juicers from $100 to $150, power, pro, elite, etc. Do you know which one you have? Do you think it is worth it to buy a top model over the bottom model? Thank you for your post!

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

We just wash them and remove any marks

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
