I was reluctant to buy a juicer because the costs were ridiculous. But I saw Jack LaLanne promote this one and I thought, I really need to start juicing. The first day I had all my veggies and fruits and started doing it. Carrots, Celery and Apples. AMAZING.
The food went down into the chute, juice came out (I use a 2 cup measuring cup) and I poured it into a pitcher for the family to enjoy. Clean up was so easy I can't tell you how easy it is. Just use a stiff brush on the spinning basket and the blade. I put a plastic garbage back in the pulp collector for easy clean up. Rinse and set on a towel then leave for work. Everything is dry and ready to put back together when you get home. Performance is better than expected. I have juiced coconut flesh, beets, butternut squash, kale, parsley, cilantro, grapes with or without seeds and stems (not the big stems but the little ones the grapes attach to) For [$] you are not getting a better juicer.
I bought this 3 days ago and so far I love it! It's very quiet, pretty easy to clean, only like 5 large peices and makes great juice. The pulp that's left over is really dry. It also comes with a recipe book for stuff you can make with the pulp. I think it is a great buy for the price . After making 3 friends a juice with it, they all went out and bought one.
We've had this juicer for about a week now and it's done a good job of juicing everything we've put in it. As long as you read the manual and follow the instructions you should have no problem. It doesn't do the greatest job with wheatgrass, but I think that is the nature of wheatgrass. Clean up can be a little tedious, but after downing your juice, you'll have plenty of energy to clean it!
