That thing was loud. Really loud! But the kicker was the absolute mess is created within itself. And the tiresome process to clean it up. It was a racket. In the summer I used to take it out side and spray it down with the garden hose, no joke. In the end I never, ever used the machine. Hence, never ever enjoy fresh veg and fruit juice. Which is too bad because that stuff is like pure health in a cup.
After a few years of un-juicing I decided there had to be a better way. A better machine. Research quickly led me to auger style masticating juicer. Quiet and easy to clean. And supposedly healthier since the RPM's are so low no enzyme-killing heat is introduced to the juice cells. I don't know about that all but I was sold on the first two points.
So I bought a Omega J8004 juicer at Amazon. Wow, looks so cool on the counter top. Easy to assemble when ready. Quiet when powered on. And fun to grind the veg/fruit down and around and into juice. Clean up is a snap. Just a few pieces washed off in the sink and done! Does not take more than 90 seconds. And I mean that.
It is actually something I can use each morning before work and that is serious health. In short, this is an appliance worth having on your counter top. If you are in the market for health than check out the Omega brand of juicers at Amazon. Worth it.
