  • Thanks for posting that info for everyone!  Juicer reviews I found very varied with contrasting results. I saw the ones you posted plus many more. If you research the champion you will also find that it is not made of plastic as most of the others. May be best to listen to the expert in the field. 

  • My search was for best juicer reviews and top 5 juicer reviews. Champion did not come in on those results. Doesn't mean it's not a good juicer, just didn't come up in my results. :)

    From what I read about the Gerson Therapy diet for cancer: "The Gerson Therapy for cancer requires a two-step machine, with a grinder and a hydraulic press."..."We have found two juicers that fit these criteria, and are appropriate for using for the Gerson Therapy for cancer: the Norwalk juicer or a Champion juicer with a separate hydraulic juice press."..."For patients doing the Gerson Therapy for non-malignant conditions, or healthy people juicing to enhance their health, it is not as strictly necessary to use a two-step juicer, though it is still recommended. Masticating juicers are acceptable alternatives for non-cancer patients doing the Gerson Therapy, as they extract a sufficient amount of juice, and preserve enzyme activity." http://gerson.org/gerpress/gerson-guide-to-juicers/

    The Norwalk juicer is a triturating (twin gear) juicer and the Champion is a masticating (single gear) juicer. As I said previously, these are the ideal juicers (triturating and masticating) to use because they can juice just about anything and maintain vital plant enzymes.

    I noticed that Gerson Therapy recommends the Champion as first choice after the extremely expensive Norwalk.    Shayleen did you not see the reviews on the champion?    Gerson is the most concerned with preserving the greatest amount of nutrients so I thought it would be a good reference to use.   I found very positive reviews on it.   It is also reasonably priced I thought for what you are getting - in the 300-400 range and you can do everything with it.  Just need a separate attachment for wheatgrass.   I had decided to purchase the champion.

  • I did some research on juicers. The ideal juicer is a triturating (twin gear) or masticating (single gear) juicer. These juicers can crush the juice out of just about anything and maintain vital plant enzymes. However, they are a bit pricey. 

    Top reviewed triturating (twin gear) juicers I found: Super Angel 5500 Juicer, Green Star Elite GSE-5000

    Top reviewed single gear masticating juicers I found: Omega VRT 350 HD Juicer, Omega J8006, Omega J8005, Breville BJS600XL.

    Next choice in line is a centrifugal juicer. Centrifugal juicers are high speed juicers. Not so good with leafy vegetables though.

    Top reviewed centrifugal juicers I found: Breville 800JEXL, Breville Ikon BJE510XL, Breville BJE200XL.

    The Breville BJE200XL was rated as the best juicer under $100. 

    These are the 5 websites I narrowed down to for comparison. I recommend reading the reviews so you have a better understanding of how the different juicers work.

  • Recently found out that if you buy a Jack lalane juicer from somewhere other than through Jack Lalanne they will not cover the warranty.  

  • I saw a Hamilton Beach juicer in Big Lots today for $50.

  • Vidya,  You might want to check out QVC online.  Many times they have juicers on Easy Pay.  This is where you can break down a payment into three to five payments instead of all at once!  They have Vitamixes, too, on their easy pays.  Also, many juicers have come down in price.  My Jack LaLanne was $150 when I bought it and now sells under 100 now.  You could also maybe find one at a yard sale/ garage sale / flea market if you look for them.

  • Thank you for the suggestions. All the high priced juicers got me worried that I may not be able to afford one.

  • I also have the Jack Lalaine Ultimate Jucier. 

    Here is a link to their 5 different options.  http://www.powerjuicer.com/power-juicer-shop.php

    I first bought the "classic" at Walmart for less than $60, but a couple of weeks later found the "deluxe" at costco for $100. So decided to keep the 'deluxe' and return the 'classic'.  I noticed a HUGE difference between them.  You get a lot more juice and way less pulp.
