I got my juicer today!
and I made deliciousness!
Until I get more supplies tomorrow I just threw whatever I had in the house into it. this was apple, orange and strawberry. Fruit juices are a bit high calorie, so I'm going to mix them with low cal veggies starting tomorrow.
After reading reviews for a few hours....okay, a few days! I decided on the Breville JE900, it was on sale, had free shipping, and was one of the highest rated not just on amazon, but on juicer review websites as well. So far I love it, it's fast, it's fairly simple to put together once you read the directions. (I had some stuff on upside down at first. But I'm also ridiculous.) The directions are pics with instructions so it's easy to get together.
It juices fast, but let me warn you, to quote my boyfriend joey, "It sounds like a jet engine", which it does. I live in an apartment with a baby downstairs and there is no way they would appreciate me using this thing at 2 a.m.
The cup above with ice, was about 16 oz, maybe a bit more. I feel like I got a lot of juice, and the pulp was not soaking wet, which was a complaint I heard about other juicers. Also, there was very little foam, therefore not much air going through so lots of juice came out.
So in short, easy to put together, sounds like a jett landing on your roof, lots of juice! I give it 4.5 stars. I would like it to not be so loud but I hear that they are all mostly pretty loud so not that big a deal.
Go get one! :)
ETA: It does have a froth separator so if you don't like froth you can use that. I don't like it, but didn't see the separator right away (bf had used it before I got home and cleaned everything up and I didn't notice it in the strainer)
