    go ahead and make fun of this but I ordered a nutri-bullet about 6 months ago -you know those annoying commercials and it has been awesome!!!! I used mini blenders before and I had the juicer by Jack Lalanne, the nutri bullet is by far the best in price, blending, size, and clean up. No, they are not paying me-I'm just talking about my n=1 experience.

    Almost every morning I blend spinach, mixed greens, cucumbers, strawberries, frozen blueberries, frozen carrots whole milk, half and half, green powder superfood, cinnamon, and cayenne pepper. You don't have to be there to push a button, just set it in to get started and you can tend to other early morning fixings while it's blending. DELICIOUS and it is all liquid-convenient to drink for breakfast.

    The good thing to buy that nutri-bullet -you get free shipping and you can pay $20.00 a month.

    I could care less about the company, but I love this thing-take it from someone who has blended and juiced the past 7 years. So take this for what its worth and good luck to you regardless.

      Again great feedback guys!!!

      The Omega 8004 was put to the test this morning! It did very well in making a lot of juice and clean up was amazingly easy.

      A good friend of ours uses the Jack La Layne and really likes it as well. But I have not seen his in action.

      I just threw some veggies and fruit in not knowing how it would taste... Pretty decent, but I added too much fresh ginger in one juice. Tomorrow maybe I can follow a recipe

      This should be fun!!! The wife and I enjoyed the juices... The kids were not so receptive. Granted the wife warned of explosive stool once all this juice kicks in! LOL yet to be seen... We already eat lots of veggies, so I doubt the colon impact will be that intense.

        I have a couple juices, a twin gear and a centrifugal..But they are such a pain to clean its just not worth it most of the time. What I do love is my vitamix, Imake green smoothies and the thing basically cleans itself(just rinse, fill with water and run for 10 seconds and its clean!) Its kinda expensive but well worth it, I use it for so many different things.

          Some years ago, I researched juicers, and the general consensus was that twin gear juicers extracted a bit more juice than single gear juicers, but the single gear juicers were much easier to clean. Since I'm the one who does all the kitchen clean-up, we got an Omega 8001 single gear juicer. It now sits on a shelf in the basement, seldom used. The new darling of the household is a Blendtec with a Wildside Jar. We also have an ancient Vitamix 3600, which I use to process farmers market tomatoes into liquid for freezing.

            A crappy Singer juicer. Don't like it. It splatters & hard to clean and the opening is very narrow, lost of stuff left in pieces.

              More updates!

              We have really enjoyed the fruit "sorbet" that can be made in the 8004. A nice and easy desert that everyone enjoys... I know too much fruit. LOL

              We have been having a heck of a time getting the kids on board... Unless you put too much (IMO) fruit in the juicy they find it bitter. Also one child has a hang up on drinking something green! Ugg! "just drink it and shut up about it" is a hard sell

              The wife and I are enjoying it very much! Although she likes some fruit in the juice. I think a pinch of cilantro really adds some zing to the greener juices. watch out for too much ginger, it only needs a little for flavor.

              Clean up is a snap, much easier than expected. But you need to clean it immediately after use, otherwise I could see the fiber drying out and being a pain to remove.

              FWIW We have used recipes as guides, but end up making whatever we have on hand... Some of the juices require some ingredients that we don't normally have.

              ... The wife want to juice fast... I told her the Cliff Notes of Fat Sick and Nearly Dead... 60 days of Mean Green only she balked at. Which I would too. Also I do not think a strictly juice fast is a good thing.

              More to come!

                I use a Breville blender. I got it for my birthday and it's pretty heavy duty, I think around the $200 mark. Keeps all the pulp and will blend anything including root vegetables and ice. Only 3 parts to clean as well, I'd never buy a juicer.

                    I have just SOLD my masticating juicer (too much of a faff cutting the veg up small - it took ages and I just didn't use it). And now - a Dualit blender and green smoothies. SO much better!!!!

                      I debated on whether to get a juicer or save my money for a Vitamix, and I went for the latter. I wanted to keep the fiber and did not want to be bothered with clumsy juicer parts and wasted pulp.

                        I have both a Vitamix AND breville. If I want clear juice, I use the latter. I use the leftover pulp in muffins for the kids or I just compost it.
