Aw Nil, you just had to go and pour some lighter fluid on the fire, didn't you?

I don't have space for another gadget in my kitchen, and if I did spend 300+ on something, I would get a kick-a$$ blender. At keast then I can make some mean margaritas as well.
Naaaah, like I said, I wish I could make them and drink it.

I agree on the blender.

It's a good point. It's worth considering the fact that juicing is a process which refines sugar. (Animals, of course, don't juice...)
Juicing doesn't refine sugar it just extracts all liquid in the fruit and veg, it does nothing else to it - we are talking kitchen gadgets not commercial juicers here. Refining extracts everything leaving just sucrose which has no nutritional value whatsoever. As for animals not juicing, I'm sure there must be some that squeeze fruit!

Today's juicing experiment:
- 2 celery sticks with leaves
- half tomato
- half red bell pepper
- half cucumber

Celery taste was too strong. I added a few black grapes and lemon: much better to drink now. The celery sticks is a big mess with its fibers. I'll put at the end next time and less quantity.
definitely try the celery at the end. i juice a lot of celery (but i like the taste) and it's so fibrous that it can get a bit stuck. that sounds like a lovely sunday afternoon kind of juice- don't do a lot of things like tomatoes or peppers but i think i'll try that tomorrow as it sounds good.

tonight i used some overly ripe mangoes and made fresh mango coconut milk ice cream using the juicer. it's setting now in the freezer and looks delicious.

agreed about the blender- but a juicer doesn't only make juice- at least most of the expensive (over 300chf) ones. pasta, ice cream, nut butter, soups, etc.

most important thing is to spend money on the things you personally would use the most. i never understood someone spending a ton on a coffee machine but frankly i don't care if they do. it wouldn't be worth it to me to do so. my juicer certainly gets use 1-2 times a day, and in the summer when i do make fresh juice cocktails there is nothing better.yum~

Fruit smoothies are acidic and the bits cling to your teeth, so dentists are not enthusiastic. An apple a day may keep the doctor away, but not when it's been peeled, blended, mashed and packaged.

And I very much doubt that the occasional fruit juice or fruit smoothie is going to do any harm. Nonetheless, I've personally given up buying them and we rarely have them in the house.
The article is talking about pre-packaged products, when much crap has been added to change the taste, maximize the fruit content used, and add to shelf longevity. I wonder how many people read the articles that they post right through to the end.

The idea behind juicing is generally green juice from vegetables rather than fruit laden ones or smoothies. There are benefits to be had from it, it's just whether you can be bothered. People rarely question the fact they're eating burgers and sausages that they have no idea what's in them but would spend all day arguing if drinking a veg or fruit juice is heathy! Kind of mucked up really!

Hilariously true... but we know the reason why some few members are here arguing this point. They see a group of people like and are enthusiastic about something, and then will go out of their way to try and prove them wrong, simply for the love of doing so. The internet has ever been thus.

Re: The Great Big Juicing Thread...

A friend that opened a juice bar back in the UK, spent up to 1000 pounds for each professional blender, to be honest I felt I got the same results from my home blender which is still going strong. The lifespan of the blender depends how often you use it. And the sound volume was the equivalent I found

I find the upright ones much more convenient. This one looks like a good alternative, maybe a rebadged Hurom http://www.amazon.de/Klarstein-Fruit...m_cr_pr_sims_t
