I'm actually glad to see this item on deals.woot. I have been wanting a juicer. Anyone know how this compares to the others? I'm not sure what to look for and what is not necessary.

Amazon has it listed for $79, and it has 3 stars. I'm wanting to buy one, but will opt for a more expensive model after reading the reviews. http://www.amazon.com/Juiceman-JM480S-Automatic-Extractor-Integrated/dp/B003ZDNKR4/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1329976914&sr=8-2

Too bad, I bought a juicer last week because I was tired of waiting for one to pop up on here. Hope this is a good one, for everyone else who is buying one!

Can't vouch for this juicer, but have used a Jack Lalanne(ok)& I am currently using Breville(Great, but also $300). My father & I juice every 2 weeks. We make enough for each to drink 1 8oz jar a day for 2 weeks. It's one of the few healthy things that I do regularly. I have a little more energy & haven't gotten sick really this past year, so I guess it's helping.

Our recipe:
Carrots (6lbs)
Celery (2 stalks)
Spinach (4 bags) sorry not sure of weight
Parsley (6 bunches)
Apples (about 20-28 depends on the size)
lemons (2-4) to preserve juice

This makes about 28-34 8oz jars.

juicing is very healthy for the body.

please consider organic.

try and limit the high sugar juice and try to juice more greens

also, please do some research on juicing as if done wrong you can cause too much sugar spike

IMO i like to use a blender to make sure I get all the fiber

good luck

@sweetpea113377: I've heard the benefits of juice can dissipate minutes after it's made because of oxidation and other things. It seems it would be better to drink it right away. Two weeks is quite a while.

@fit410s: I tried the blender thing also. Went and spent crazy money on a Vitamix, but I was already used to just the juice. I didn't care for the texture when it came to drinking all of the pulp along w/ the juice. I did get a Ninja for x-mas, so I will give the blended version another go. I'm also looking for some new juice recipes.

Can you please post one of your favorite recipes? Thanks

@publicart: Yeah, I did hear the same thing. I do use jars w/ button top lids. Most of the time the button pops when opening them, so I assume they are air tight. We also use the lemons mainly to preserve the freshness. We are considering cutting down to 1/week, but it isn't always easy to find the time. Not including purchasing the veggies, it does only take about 2-2.5 hours for us to juice our normal batch. It is just a matter of being able to coordinate our schedules. Honestly, I probably wouldn't even bother at all, but I enjoy the one on one time w/ my dad. No matter how hectic things are, I know that I will be able to catch up w/ my dad at least every 2 weeks. Otherwise it is only a quick phone call or so every couple of days. He has been juicing for almost 3 years now & would juice w/ or w/out me. He swares by it.

The quality is in the "middle". I would spend a few dollars more and get a better product.

vote-for4vote-against

This is already the price on thatdailydeal.com without adding the Woot coupon code. Does the code do anything? What am I missing?

vote-for6vote-against

@terilynn: Adding the code says "flat rate shipping $4.99" which is already the shipping cost....so no it doesn't do anything.

The Juiceman Juicer
This juicer Separates the Pulp from the Juice so you can use the pulp to make Breads and things or just throw it out.
I've got one of the older models from about 10 years ago and still works!
The Screen Strainer Basket strains the Pulp,, that does need to be replaced about every 6 months or so, depending on your usage and what you are juicing. Whole Apples and Celery are Light but, heavier fruits like maybe Cantaloupe are tougher on the strainer.
I'm not sure of the Power of the Motor on this one as mine is a hefty one, which helps to put through a large amount of whole fruits quickly!
I Like the juicer and recommend it to everyone.
Enjoy!

The Juiceman Juicer
Addition
The Basket Strainer is what does the grinding and separation of the Pulp from the Juice. Depending on the force you use to Push down on the plunger, use of Denser fruits like Carrots and your usage of the unit depends on how long the Strainer Basket lasts before the need for replacement...could be over a year!
Cleaning the Juicing parts is fairly easy.
I find, a Vegetable Brush cleans out the Strainer quite nicely and quickly.
REMEMBER TO WASH ALL YOUR JUICING FRUITS AND VEGETABLES!!
Like I said above, mine does have a Hefty motor, which made the unit cost over 4 times this one, ~ $150
With non abusive and care use of this unit, it should still last a long time!

We did all the research on juicers and for our time and money we decided to go with a Breville. Expensive (to the tune of $300), but we decided that we would get our moneys worth. We use it nearly 5-7 times a week, to ensure the juice is as fresh as possible.

Of Note: Centrifugal Juicers aren't the best for greens, but we decided the speed was well worth losing a bit of juice. We love it!

I have a Hamilton Beach big mouth pro, it's a pretty basic juicer. I absolutely love the juice (especially carrot! who knew? even my kids love carrot juice!) but I hate the difficulty of cleaning the pulp out of all the little crevices. Does anyone have any information on ease of cleaning this model?

vote-for2vote-against

@sweetpea113377: do you substitute a meal for the juice, or use it for supplementing in addition to normal meals? also do you have an example of the button top lids you use? i wonder if my juice would keep that long without using something like a special lid

from one amazon review

Breville BJE200XL 700-Watt Compact Juice Fountain

The Breville juicer is still working and an amazing machine compared to the Juiceman. Spend the few extra dollars and get the Breville. I make up three to four glasses of juice a day and I think I've saved enough money on organic produce in the last two weeks to pay for the difference between the Breville and the Juiceman.

I've been using Juiceman Juicers for at least a decade and have been very satisfied with them. I am a little be leery about the "integrated pulp container" that this one has. It looks like that pulp container is actually just the top part of the juicer and it probably fills up rather quickly and may even obstruct/hold in the juice. I think the better choice for a juicer of this type (centrifugal) would be to get one the models that eject the pulp out the back and into a bucket, like most all of the other Juiceman models (and like 90% of all centrifugal juicers). This type, however, is what you'd find on a good citrus juicer, which this doubles as, so I'm guessing that's why it uses this type of design. I bet this thing makes an excellent citrus juicer and is easily worth the price just for that. 800 watts in a citrus juicer is unheard of in a home unit. The Breville citrus juicer only has 90 watts and most others only 40 to 60 watts. For citrus, this should rock!

If you want to make the best carrot cake ever, juice a bunch of carrots and use the pulp in the bread. I typically use two cups of carrot pulp and 2 cups of grated carrots.

Will I be able to follow the Garth Brooks juice diet with this thing?

Read This!!! I purchased this juicer, and it is terrible. After doing a lot of research on higher end juicers, I purchased this one thinking it would be a great introductory juicer. This thing doesn't juice fruit, it esplodes it! I cut the sides off an apple and fed it through the chute, and spat! The inside of the juicer is covered with apple guts. Yes it does allow the juice to leak out of the pulp, but a real juicer should have a pulp ejection system, and some way of pressing the pulp to extract the juice. Don't even bother with berries, they just bounce over the top of the filter. The juicer is very loud, and emits a burnt smell if juicing harder fruits or vegetables. If anyone is in the Columbia, MO. area, and wants this juicer, I'll sell you mine for $20.00. Buy an Omega VRT330 HD juicer if you want to get the most out of your fruits or veggies. If you aren't so serious, and just want something to get the job done, get a jack lalaine or a higher end juiceman. Anything but this!

"please consider organic."

Please consider that organic food is a feel good scam.

We use a Hamilton Beach Big Mouth. It works fine enough for the casual juice consumer. We use it about 5 times weekly. We juice everything from apples to zucchini and everything in between, including garlic, onions, and peppers. Great for making chunking vegetable soup. Add back in the pulp, some beans, and a little cream. Simmer. Enjoy. It's gold, Jerry!

All i read from your link is don't listen to false advertisement, not all organic food is a scam, There are plenty of farmers markets that produce organic food that go threw far less chemicals then alot of the stuff you get from the grocery store. Organic food can be used as a marketing gimmick but that doesn't mean all organic food is a gimmick.

And there is alot of modern agriculture that is causing problems such as killing off lakes and damaging ocean ecosystems.
