    Id like to get a juicer, I want the Jack Lalane Juicer but $100 is a little pricey for me. What brand do you have and do you think you get a lot of juice out of the food you put in it? Is it easy enough to operate and clean?

    I have the Jack Lalane one. It works brilliantly, however because in the UK we import a lot of our fruit it gets to be very expensive to make juices. Also I find cleaning it a pain (it does go in the dishwasher but has lots of fiddly bits and doesn't always get clean properly). Overall I really like it - it's the price per glass of juice I don't care for, but you may not have that problem.

    We have a $10 one that juices oranges and lemons and other citrus....it works pretty well, but you have to do it by hand.
    I get the feeling you guys have a different kind. [​IMG]

    I do own one. We bought it like 5 years ago. Used it once and have never used it since. lol. I hate it. Doesnt work all that well. Maybe its just the one we bought but I would rather squeeze then use this thing any more.
