I'm not familiar with them personally, but I've heard good things about the juicers from costco. They also double the warranty on most of their products...

So many different brands, anyone have a favorite? I'm personally looking for something that doesn't take up a lot of counter, and is semi-quiet.

I have a Jack LaLanne Juicer, lost almost 40 lbs using it on a diet. ou can find it for about 100 bucks, even lower is you look around

Everything ... all depends.
A woman I know loves the bullet. Smoothie for breakfast, another for lunch and/or snacks, and if she just wants juice she will filter thru a strainer.
I got a Vitamix cheap when a cow worker moved. It's big, it's noisy, but I'm old and don't care. It does everything I want. I have a strainer also.
Another woman I know has the LaLanne one. She saves the pulp for baking with on the weekends.
Most folk I know have the little manual "cut in half, press down, turn and squish" juicer. Cheap, small, no noise, effective, safe for kids.
We're all happy with what we have.

"Juicer", eh? Is that a slang term for a buff fellow? On the countertop, you say? Well, whatever suits your fancy, I guess!

I kid, I kid. I have nothing of value to add other than to apologize to @inkycatz as I'm sure I've referred to her as a "he" several times. My bad!

@bsmith1: We're all good!

I had been eyeing a Breville, but the LaLanne one also looks good. HMMMM.

@gidgaf & @mkentosh - thanks for the recs/suggestions! Is Jack Lalanne the Juiceman? Because that guy wins on eyebrow merit alone.

@Bsmith1 - Column A or Column B. Both good!

I hate to say it, but I've tried several (under $70) & hate them all. Sometimes they end up grinding up part of the rind with the juice (ugh). Some have spouts that are too close to the juicer itself, so that some of the juice ends up drooling down the side of the juicer. I've ended up with using the old handheld juicer (the kind you find at walmart for $5). This from someone who has one margarita per day (i.e. fetches the juice of one lime per day). Considering what I use it for, well, this works.

This was on a top 10 list (#3) of juicers under $200. This also had great reviews on Amazon vs. #1 & #2:

I wanted a juicer so bad for so long, then I finally got one and realized it took 8 apples to make a glass of juice and decided to just eat apples. However I Did like the Jack Lalanne juicer, but everything I've read says you want to go with a Masticating Juicer and those are expensive in my experience.

@gideonfrost: I was thinking the same thing!
@bsmith1: 'mega dittos'

Why use a juicer when you can buy juice from the store?

The breville compact juice maker has gotten the highest number of votes on amazon, and you can get it remanufactured for only $70 at http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B005E1PGRC/ref=oh_o00_s00_i00_details
I actually just got it today, so I can't personally say yet how good it is. Be aware that there are some things that can't be juiced very well in a centrifugal juicer, like herbs and wheat grass. Instead, you have to get the masticating juicer, which cost more

@jseureau: The way juice is prepared to be fit for shelf life leaves little to no nutrients in the juice. The stuff you buy at the store is really equivalent to sugar water because of the pasteurization and oxidation shelf juice goes through. Most juices have as many grams of sugar as soda, albeit it's juice sugar rather than corn syrup. Consuming fruits and vegetables immediately after juicing has a lot of benefits. You can absorb the nutrients better, but also all the little microbes and vitamins are fresh. Also, it's just more efficient. You can drink vegetables way faster than you can eat them.

@pemberducky: @inkycatz: Hit a thrift store. I paid $15 for an unused but boxless Waring Pro. Which was $7 more than the second one I bought.

@gideonfrost: lol, i had the same experience you .Having spend a lot of thought and effort, but havn't achieved the desired effect. So, now i eat apples instead of using juicer.
