I've spent nearly 2 hours on Amazon.com and a couple of other sites between last night and today trying to figure out which one I want to get. I've read almost every review on Amazon for the 15-20 juicers that had a 4-star or higher rating and I think I've narrowed the list down to 4 possibilities. Except for one, they are all in the $135 range.
The reason I'm doing so much research is that I don't generally have $135 laying around to just go buy something on a whim. In fact, I'm clearing out some clutter in our house with the intention that it might fund this purchase. I need to ensure that I'm really getting the best value for my money and not buying something that will burn up after a few uses, or even a few years.
I thought I'd lay out my choices and see if any of you had an opinion about them.
Cuisinart CJE-1000 1000-Watt 5-Speed Juice Extractor:
- PROS: quiet, 1000-watts, 5-speed control, 3-year limited warranty
- PROS: 850-watts, 2-speed control, 5 year warranty on the motor
Jack LaLanne Power Juicer Pro Stainless-Steel Electric JuicerHamilton Beach 67650 Big Mouth Pro Juice Extractor
- PROS: quiet, 90-day parts warranty, has Jack LaLanne's name on it
- PROS: only $75, 1.1 horsepower motor, 1 year limited warranty
So, these are my choices. I ruled out Breville and Oster juicers because they are way too expensive for my budget. And I haven't done a lot of comparison shopping on the pricing either, but I can get 3 of them shipped free via my Amazon Prime or Amazon Mom memberships. (Do you have yours yet? If not, you totally should!!!)
If you have any experience at all with juicing and want to share your own juicer reviews, I'd love to read them. Leave them in the comments if you like.
