I am interested in buying a Juicer. I would like a machine that is fairly durable. Not one that is only going to last a year or less. I don't mind cutting the produce some, but would rather not have to cut every thing up into small pieces to fit into the feed tube. Does any one have recommendations? And Where is the best places to find Juicers at a good price? Thanks in advance!

I just got done watching a documentary on Netflix... forget the exact name but it was something like "Sick, Fat and Nearly Dead" and it followed 2 guys who juiced.  They used a Breville.  Sure enough, the Brevilles are getting great reviews on Amazon.  The Jack Lalane's are NOT AT ALL which I found surprising.  I was at "Tuesday Morning" the other day and saw a Sharper Image Juicer/Blender Combo for $80, but I decided to check reviews before I bought. I'm glad I did, as it seems to be horrible.  I'm not ready to add another appliance just yet, but I think the $100 Breville is what I'm going to go with.

We also watched the same movie "Sick, Fat and Nearly Dead" but on Hulu. We were wanting to get a juicer and his show just motivated us further. We are looking at the $100 Breville as well. The more expensive Breville gets poorer reviews. Still hate to part with my money without researching the expense as well as possible.

I'm also interested in juicing, so I was searching the web for the best juicer (I've already got one after weeks of researching - which is a small Breville Juicer).

If you are looking for a durable machine, yet powerful one, get yourself a Breville Juicer. Their prices vary from $99 (or even less with coupons) to $300-400 if you are looking for a super powerful model (the prices are from Amazon, but the products can be found on Macy's, Bed Bath and Beyond and other stores too).


But, if you are looking for a huge warranty (not that Breville juicers don't last long), go for an Omega Juicer (which is powerful too). These juicers have 10-15 years of warranty, so you don't have to worry about, on another hand Breville Juicers only have 2-3 years of warranty. Or so I know.


If you don't mind cutting, go for an Omega. But if you don't want to cut too much, go for an Omega with a big opening or a Breville which have big openings and "eat" the veggies/fruits like crazy. If you need, read some juicer reviews to find out more about these type of juicers.


The best place to get juicers at a good prices are online or in-store. If you want to get it cheaper, just sign up to Bed Bath and Beyond and get the 20% off initial coupon. Go in-store and get your favorite juicers. From time to time Macy's also has 20-25% off coupons and even 40% off discounts for juicers. hug


Altough some said the more expensive Breville's get more poorer reviews, those seem to be better if looking for fast juicing.


I wrote a lot, hope it helps some of you. I am ready to write more if needed.

I use a Breville for my daily green juice drink.  Purchased it at Macy's it was on sale for 169.00, I also had a 20% off coupon. Great deal. Very happy with the Breville. Takes larger pieces of fruit and veg.  Check out some YouTube videos that review the Breville and the Omega.  Growyourgreens has a good video review of both juicers.  

And I believe my daily green drink is beneficial.
