Your Vita-Mix won't juice. Period. If you want to juice, get a juicer and if you want whole-food smoothies, use your Vita-Mix (although I STRONGLY recommend upgrading to a 5200--take it from someone who did). There's no reason why you can't juice AND make smoothies but your Vita-Mix isn't going to give you juice, regardless of Vitamix's hype about the virtues of "whole juice," or whatever they're calling it. I would recommend, however, that if you're going to juice you abandon the idea of a Breville and look for a commercial Champion in black (because of staining). Your juice will be of much higher quality and your juicer will last forever. You can also get an attachment for it that allows you to do greens.
Tons of fruits and vegetables can be juiced with this machine! But, there needs to be juice in them first. Things like Bananas, maybe potatoes, and, from the sound of it, seaweed, don't have much juice to give. You may get a little, but it will probably just mince it for you. Now, apples, oranges, carrots (surprising to me), peaches, plums, pears, berries, grapes, tomatoes: so much beautiful juice. There are more. Many, many more. Mint leaf, spinach... etc. This is a fine blender, but make sure to follow the directions on specific fruits where care must be taken (Peaches have giant pits, for example).
I juice everyday and consider it a commitment. Making sure you find a recipe you like and keep up on stocking the veggies and cleaning the juicer, and it definitely is a refreshing way of life for me now. To have a change, you need to change. This is a good start.
There are few major types of juicers: centrifugal and masticating juicers. For those of you who are really serious i would recommend a masticating juicer, simply due to the nutritional value that is retained. I recommend a Omega or Breville since they are the perfect balance between quality and price. Below is a short and informative guide along with some of the best products! Good luck!
This one is made and sold for the US market. We use 110v here in the US. The plug is a simple two ply prong. The new one works perfectly. For now. Will wait for a few more days before I write the update.
