Kudos to the JLL Ultimate Power Juicer!

Summary: Noise irritates me (as in my previous juicer), so this machine is a dream - I don't need the aggravation of a jet engine in my kitchen in the morning! Seriously, the JLL Ultimate seems to work very well. No, it doesn't have the power of the Breville, but it still pulls out plenty of juice (and it's about 2/3 the price). It's nice looking, too.
Summary: This is a great machine. I recommend that you place small trash bags in the pulp container to easily discard or save your pulp. I got some really really good juice with this machine. I definitely recommend it.
Summary: Hubby and I purchased this juicer 3 weeks ago at Costco. We were fully aware (I had done my research) that I would maybe be happier with a higher end brand, but we try to live within our budget, hence the research. The juicer has been used by the 2 of us for 3 meals a day since then: 66 meals. That is a LOT of fruits and veggies going through! Obviously by the 5 stars I gave this, we are happy. It does what it says it will do, no more, no less.
Summary: Bought this juicer for $89 from the warehouse store that begins with C and ends in an O. I bought with the thought that I just needed to start juicing and if I didn't like it I could take back. Well I am going to keep. I am not interested in the other types of juicers, masticating, presses, high speed centrifugal, etc... This one works well and the prices is right. The key to using this juicer is to get a routine.
Summary: Just like many of you before making my juicer purchase I scoured the reviews with great care in effort to make the most appropriate buying choice for what I was looking for. As usual I found the reviews spilt down the middle and was left trying to decipher who was really happy, who was really digruntled, and who was just being dramatic. In short, I pulled the trigger and couldn't be happier with my purchase.
Summary: I am highly satisfied with Jack LaLanne's juicer! I received one for a gift and there hasn't been a day that I haven't used it! It comes with a fabulous recipe book (better than the ones I found at my local library), and it comes with a manual. It's very easy to take apart and clean and it provides me with a significant amount of juice. Some fruits and vegetables just don't have a ton of juice to give!
Summary: I just bought this at my favorite wholesale club store (the one that rhymes with Moscow) for ninety bucks. I didn't buy any produce, so I used what I had at home; baby carrots and cherries (not in recipe book). Had to pit the cherries with a big stiff straw (the kind that come with carnival cups that you can whistle through).
Summary: I have juiced for years using my Mom's Champion Juicer. So when I tried this juicer I was pleased with how well it extracted juice at a reasonable purchase cost. I think it does a nice job with both leafy and hard vegetables and fruit. However, it has a fatal flaw. The basket edge is plastic and spins very close above the edge of the frame of the juice collector. If the basket wobbles for any reason these plastic parts rub together.
Summary: I think I should have bought one a long time ago, but better late than never! The family loves it. I usually clean up after each use, but it isn't that tough to do after viewing the instructional DVD and using the cleaning brush. The book is useful to give ideas of what you may like to try next and build up a grocery list. So far, I'm glad I finally got one!
Summary: This is a great machine. I had one of the cheap ones and it was not very good, so I took a chance on This item and it exceeded all of my expectations. It halps me make great healthy juices with both fruits and veggies. The cleaning is easy enough, as long as you clean it soon after operation, if not it takes much longer. The recipe book that came with the unit is also very easy to read and follow. I highly reccommend this juicer.
