    Looking for the best economically priced juicer for the occasional juice fast. I've only seen Jack Lalanes here. Are they any good? Any recommendations?

    Use a blender, and/or visit a 2nd hand store.

    Blender is fine for fruit, I'm thinking more of for vegetables.

    I have both. I think in general, you are better off with a blender, even for vegetables. Reason is the fiber. My blender does a great job with vegetables, but it is an expensive one, a VitaMix. Not sure how the others do.

    If you google Juicing versus Blending, there are good articles worth reading. e.g.

    I bought the Waring Juice Extractor a couple of years ago, very good..has a stainless steel collector and have been able to do pretty much juicing that I wanted to.

    I agree. Very simply stated and quite wise. If money permits, buy the best blender possible but get a blender. I have a great blender and a great juicer at home... the juicer is gathering dust.

    a friend gave me this $500 juicer - something about cold pressing .
    anyway , it's a huge thing, tried it twice and haven't touched it in a year. The fucking thing takes forever to clean. (think that's why she gave it to me, it was brand new ) .
