Juicers 101...

I've had a lot of people ask me advice on juicers so here's my two cents in case you're on the fence on doing something wonderful for your body.

There are so many kinds to choose from and a lot also depends on what exactly you will be juicing. If you're interested in  juicing citrus (I would just buy a citrus juicer), making nut butters, making coconut milk or just plain juicing fruits & veggies there's one out there for you. 
I started out with an Omega juicer years ago and it did the job and didn't break the bank. (I pretty much stick to the basics on juicing...nothing fancy and out of the ordinary.) You can find these at Target, Macy's and a slew of other places.

  • On the light side so it moves around a little when juicing
  • Smaller opening which = taking time to cut fruit/veggies
  • Doesn't come with a juice receptacle = have to place your glass under spout
  • Doesn't come with a brush to clean the blade but any dish brush will do
  • Using the paper filters you can purchase extra makes clean up easier
Here's what we use today
We found ours at Williams-Sonoma not sure if anyone else carries them but here's why we love it
  • It has two speeds
  • Extra wide feed tube-no need to pre cut your fruits & veggies
  • Juice is dispensed in pitcher which is nice when making a glass for you and your sweetie
  • Comes with brush for cleaning and mesh basket filters the pulp-no paper filters 
  • Commercial quality without the commercial cost
  • It extracts 30% more juice than traditional models
Hope this helps in your decision making-These are the only two I can give an honest opinion on so Cheers to Juicing For Life!


  1. Thanks for this info. I have wanted to buy a juicer but always held back because I didn't want to spend so much money and it end up being junky.

  2. This is an awesome one makes juicing so easy and will last forever!
