Recommend a juicer?

Recommend a juicer?

* I want a juicer, not a blender
* Something EASY to CLEAN
* Something that does green leafy vegetables well
* Something durable.

Anything else I should know?

Any big differences between centrifuge juicers and presses?

Will a presser juicer let me make juice I don't have to drink right away?

Some people claim that centrifugal juicers are bad for vitamins 'cause high-speed spinning produces some heat. But from what I've read that's not true. Plus, centrifugal juicer is good if you like to drink juices with pulp.
Take a look at Breville (don't know if links are allowed here). We have fountain duo, and I really like it.

If you haven't choose yet, I'd recommend you to take a look at the review here. It might be helpful.
I've read a lot of manuals and guides before I've bought mine. Also my husband wasn't so sure about juicing diet being a good option for both of us.

I would recommend you to buy Super Angel SS Twin Gear Juicer. It's the best juicer which am using too.

My recommendation is to save your money. I just gave away my old juicer. My advice is to blend your fruits and eat your veggies. Juicing your veggies is a nice shortcut to get all the nutrients out of the veggies but you are throwing away most of the fiber. Fiber is a really really important part of your diet. Some veggies are best eaten cooked. and some veggies are best eaten raw. One good solution is the raw till 4 or some variation. A big salad for lunch. Steamed, baked, broiled, or fried veggies for dinner.

I would advise against a juicer. Get a high speed blender like Vitamix or Blendtec or others. If you want juice you can strain through a nutbag, but that should not often. You need the whole food to balance out the nutrients

Don't let the perfect be the enemy of the good

I don't juice as much as I used to, but my thrift shop acquired (I think for $4.00 or so) Jack LaLane Power Juicer still works like a charm after almost 4 years of having it and using it much more often than I ever anticipated.

I have to mix the greens with the chunks of veggies to have them juice better than trying to stick noting but greens in, as it sometimes shuts it off and I have to open it, clean them off and start over, and watermelon rind was a bit too much for it unless chopped up super small. Otherwise, I never had a problem with it.

I juice the fruit and ginger root first, then save the pulp in a bowl, then juice the veggies and turmeric root next and save that pulp separately and make more goodies like crackers, flat breads, falafel, cookies, muffins, etc. so that nothing goes to waste.

When in a hurry, or not feeling like baking and such, the pulp can be frozen to use later, or can go to the compost pile which in turn helps us grow more goodies next year.

Get a masticating juicer like the Omega J8006. It's a work horse.

The problem with the centrifugal juicers is that the little teeth on the bottom get dull.

Not sure about juicers but I have a Nutri Ninja Blender & Smoothie Maker. That lets me blend and make smoothies. I sometimes throw in a banana, peanut butter, oats for thickness and fullness and almond milk (or water) and tastes so good!

I had a Jack Lalanne juicer years ago...yes, I’m old, lol. I’m not sure if you would call it a fusion or extraction juicer but I’m pretty sure it was like that. It worked great but no way was it easy to clean which is why I stopped using it and gave it away.

I hear ya'. The hardest part I've found about cleaning the Jack LaLane juicer is the screen section with the blades on it, but I found using a bottle brush made that chore a much smoother process, and saved my fingers, no doubt.

I run hot water over it as I brush the outside of it, getting into the nooks and crannies really well. Without that brush, I can't imagine trying to get it clean.

As long as it's cleaned as soon as I finish making juice, it's a breeze. Let it set and allow stuff to dry in place....then it can indeed be a nightmare. Cheers!
