Best fruit/veggie juicer?

Can't make up my mind. Watched that movie, sick fat and nearly dead and want to help my mom out (overweight and not very healthy). Might try a 10-day fast myself to see how I feel.

I'm thinking Breville centrifugal, but not sure if I need 850, 900, 1000, or 1200 watts of power, lol. They range from $100-400.

Also, I'm not 100% convinced that the centrifugal juicers are the best for the leafy-green veggies I want to include most in the juices. I want to target kale, wheatgrass, and spinach, which I hear have issues with centrifugal juicers. Cucumbers and celery will be included, but there are less issues with them. There's also the oxidization issue with centrifugal, and losing nutritional value if you don't consume the juice within 15mins. That's a bit impractical because you can't take juice to work then...kinda odd.

Masticating juicers like this Omega is popular; but when I saw a few YouTube vids of how to operate it, it's actually kinda tough to keep shoving things down the shute...I know my mom would have a hard time and it would test her patience with the amount of time it takes.

Always a trade off!!! lol choices, choices...what are you guys using?

I've used both.
The centrifugal is nice and quick. Typical workhouse... it tears up and juices everything fairly quickly. I do notice large chunks of vegetables though in the pulp bin. The pulp still feels very wet/moist so I wonder how much actual juice these aren't getting.

My omega vrt350 is slower to use. I can't throw large chunks of veggies in there and need to have a specific order veggies to run. After I put in a bunch of leafy greens I need to put a dense veggie in there like carrots/beets/squash to clear it out. I usually have a specific order of how I juice my veggies. Lemon, ginger, leafy greens, celery, carrots.

There's talk about masticating being better because it doesn't run as hot so a lot of the nutrients are still there. I don't know if that's true or not. One huge difference I notice between the centrifugal vs masticating is the masticating juicer will make leafy green juice a lot more frothy then the centrifugal.

Blending is better for you, less wasteful, and easier to clean up.

Buy this book to understand why I say that and it has great recipes in it.

Been doing this everyday for 2 years

I have a vitamix and it works great with everything. I even make my own protein shakes with oatmeal, peanut butter, almonds and milk

Vitamix all the way. I have one at home and I bought one for work too. Hit up costco. They sell them for cheaper than anywhere else. And you get a longer warranty through vitamix if you buy it from costco than if you buy it straight through vitamix.

I've read mixed reviews on juicing fruits and veggies. Should I start juicing?

It's more easy to kill with a sword than with a gun.

A sword is more frightening than toy-looking gun like glock.

robbing with a sword is a good thing
