@eVil I bought one of these on Amazon a year or 2 ago. Works well, does a nice enough job with the juice, not as fancy as some of the 200+ buck juicers, but seriously, it’s 36 bucks… bottom line… good value for the buck and the juice is pretty good. Cleaning up is a pain though so plan ahead and juice in bulk LOL
@alternatetheory Just the kind of comments I was hoping for. Agreed, it’s hard to beat the price assuming it doesn’t self destruct on first use. I do intend to use it for ginger, so I suspect that will be about the worst use case given how fibrous and dense it is. We will see! Thanks!
Wow, this new fangled gizmo has everythang. Those new metrik numbers, a toothbrush for after you masticate (well, that’s wut it says) the stuff, one of those highfalutin metal straners, and even a stick for pleasure cept this’un dodn’t shake.
If you must have a machine do your chewing for you, you’re much better off using a blender to make stuff like smoothies. All that gunk that’s collected by the juicer is the fiber that feeds your microbiome & keeps you regular, etc. You shouldn’t mess with mother nature!
we need more stupid controversies like that, don’t we? C’mon! A company building a 700-dollar piece of machinery to squeeze little bags? That’s so funny! And such a great palate cleanser to all the actual terrible shit that is happening constantly.
Sadly, the similar scam that comes to Theranos, who made much more expensive blood testing machines that didn’t actually do anything (they were supposed to do way more tests with way less blood, but never even came close). Elizabeth Holmes is a great saleswoman, she could have sold the Juicero and made a fuckload of money on it, while doing way, way less damage than she did.
Are you kidding me! I bought this same juicer about two weeks ago for probably about twice this. I love it. I’ve had the “fast” juicer Before, I like this better. Really seems to get out more juice and supposedly it’s better for you. Instructions are English as she is spoke, but I’ve got it figured out and the thing works well and cleans up pretty easily
I don’t have this, but I’d say anyone wanting to “try” the slow masticating juicer thing should try this, at this price. I have one (actually two) of the Korean brand that is known for these, and they are very good. But they will usually cost $200-300. Sometimes a deal for $179 I think. So for this price, yes, it’s smaller and mostly plastic, but looks like it would do the job and show you what the juicing idea can do.
Main thing on any of these is that you will have to cut up things fairly small to get in the chute. Like larger carrots might have to be split, apples will have to be cut into small chunks, etc. Celery should go in fine. You can stuff the chute with greens or wheat grass and push it in to the feed. Looking at the pictures and reviews I think this would do the job.
Yes main thing is that afterwards there is some cleanup on any of this style. So as some said, maybe juice for an extra day or two and store it in the fridge.
If I didn’t have the “good one” I’d be in on this deal just to play with it.
EDIT: also wanted to add that for people saying “just use a blender” instead, the main thing that those can’t do well is things like wheat grass or finer greens. For those items you really want to separate out the stringy “fiber” and press them to get the ‘green juice’ out of them.
