    I bought a Vitamix instead of a juicer. With most if not all juicers, the pulp/fiber is what you body needs and to much straight juice is not healthy as it messes with you blood sugar. With a Vitamix I can use whole fruits and/or veggies and make smoothies, soups all kinds of things. You can look online and find them at a good price for refurbished ones



    It is very easy to clean

    My step mom is a health nutso and bought me a Nutribullet at Bed Bath and Beyond. Using a coupon I think it was $60? It does a really good job, even with blending nuts and seeds for a smoothie. She says it is better than juicing because you get all the fiber from the outside? I don't know, she is the health nut.
    I tend to agree with your Mom. I have a ninja blender (saving for a vitamix), and I just do all the juice recipes in there. Granted, I've never tried to blend a carrot, or some other really hard fruits/veggies. However, I am doing the Dr. Oz 3-day detox cleanse right now and its blending through things really well.

    Funny how this thread picked up again after several months
    I actually ended up getting a Gastroback Juicer which I absolutely love! It's really easy to clean and gets alot of juice out.

    There are pros and cons to both juicing and blending. Trying to compare the two and pick which is "better for you" is silly. Incorporate both and you'll be good.

The Champion makes baby foods, nut butters, sorbets, sauces, etc. It's very useful. I've heard great things about the Omega juicer, as well. This website is pretty helpful in explaining juicers: All About Juicing: Benefits, Juicer Reviews, Free Recipes and More
    Thank you so much for this link!!!! DH and I are going to be started a juice cleanse to jump start our diet here in about a week. I signed up for my work's Biggest Loser contest and our first weigh in this coming Friday. I am looking into juicers right now and it is looking like the Hamilton Beach one will work fine for us with our budget then maybe down the road and we really like the whole juicing thing, we might get something a little more.

    I know its not a "juicer", but I use my Ninja to juice my fruits and veggies. It works incredibly fast, and uses the entire vegetable.
