Top Customer Reviews
1. Be aware that juicy fruits, ie. citrus, melons, mangoes do produce a mushy pulp that will tend to clog the fine filter screen. You have to be careful by checking the screen often to make sure that the pulp is not clogging the screen and the drain opening.
2. When juicing vegetables that have very dry pulp, it tends to make fluffy pulp that will fill the pulp container. You need to check it to make sure that there is room in the container. I use my fist to push it down or else it will build up in the top.
3. I have a blade key but never use it. Installing the blade snug is adequate and it functions perfectly. When removing it for cleaning I stop the filter with my right hand by putting a little pressure on it and because it is "keyed" to the motor, the blade can easily be removed by applying a little downward pressure and unscrewing it.
4. The stainless steel filter cleans very easily using the palm side of your fingers under running water or using a kitchen brush. The filter is very thin stainless steel. It is imperative that it is handled carefully so as to not damage it causing creases or dents in the filter screen. If it gets damaged, it will cause imbalanced pulp ejection from the screen. When this happens, the screen frame will rub against the top as it spins and cause more damage....You just have to be careful. Replacement screens are easy to obtain and cost about $10 when needed.
5. My previous Jack LaLanne juicer had plastic parts that did not hold up in the top rack of my dishwasher...they deformed and had to be replaced. It is no big deal to wash them by hand and let them air dry.
6. As has been stated by others, I line my pulp bin with 2 plastic shopping bags. Because I juice so much at a time, it is easier to pull out the first full bag, tie the top and continue filling the second bag. Using bags keeps the bin very clean.
7. Do not wait longer than 15 to 20 minutes to clean the juicer parts after juicing. As the pulp dries out, it will make it a lot more difficult to clean the screen and parts. (This is true for any juicer.)
8. Just to clarify, this is a centrifugal juicer, not a juice press. It will leave some juice in the pulp. I have used a muslin cloth and hand wrung the pulp after juicing 1/2 gallon juice (a lot more than the average usage) and was able to recover 8 more ounces of juice, but it is a lot of work. Because my wife was ill, I was juicing 3 apples, 4 pounds of carrots, 1 cucumber, 1 large beet with greens, 1/2 head of celery, a large slab of cabbage, and squash. For 16 ounces of juice the amount of juice in the pulp would be about 2 ounces. I considered purchasing a Norwalk juicer and press like my Dad used to have but that was more than $2500.00 at today's price. I am very happy with the Jack LaLanne juicer.
9. The advertisements say that the pulp can be used for soups and baking. I found this to be false. It did not work at all for soup or baking because it was too dry. There is also very little nutritional value left in the pulp...it is all in the juice. My best use for it is to spread it in my garden as mulch.
10. Finally, you should notice that the juice collection cup is relatively short. There is about 4 1/4 inches under the spout. I use a 2 cup plastic measuring pitcher to collect the juice and it works great.
UPDATE: Jack LaLanne Power Juicer vs. Omega J8006 Juicer. With the Power Juicer, I could get 3 cups of juice and clean all parts within 5 minutes; the Omega Juicer takes 20-plus minutes to get the same 3 cups. The much faster spinning (3,600 rpm) centrifugal disc in the Power Juicer kicks butt compared to the slow turning (80 rpm) auger in the Omega. The Power Juicer has a 3" feeding chute vs. the Omega's is only one and a half inches, so you need a lot of prep time to cut the veggies and greens down to a size that fits the Omega chute. Before, only really long carrots needed to be cut with the Power Juicer. Extracted pulp is actually wetter in the Omega compared to the Power Juicer (so much for claims that masticating juicers extract more juice). The Omega at $300 is three times the price of the Power Juicer at $100. The Omega's only claim to fame is the supposed advantage of producing more healthy juice (more nutrients, etc.) by gradual grinding at the much slower 80 rpm (compared to the 3,600 rpm buzz saw of the Power Juicer).
My usual recipe is half a lemon, half a cucumber, a small apple, 3 stalks of a heart of celery and a good size piece of ginger. I'll add carrots, beets, or greens like parsley, collard greens or kale to this recipe at times as well. Delicious! It has also been very beneficial for my acid reflux, better then any pill.
