does anyone know how the rice,soy, almond milk is made? Is there a heating element, for example, in the soyquick. Also, it is recommended that wheatgrass should be wrapped in a cabbage leaf etc., and then followed by a juicy fruit like pineapple. Is this juicer worth buying in your opinion? I am not ready to buy a greenstar and I do make nut milk in my blender just looking for a do-it-all machine. Thanks!!

I have this juicer and I wish I didn't buy it. I bought it before I went raw to make soy milk. There is no heating element. What you have to do is cook the soy beans first. I have made almond milk in it and it is okay for that and the juice is okay as well, but the clean up is not all that fun. I paid about 200.00 for it and I could of bought a Champion juicer for a bit more money then I could make ice cream and nut butters as well as juice.

I was also bummed about the purchase. My Juiceman Jr was a far better buy for a standard juicer, and cheaper! For the wheatgrass, I cut it up in small pieces, pulverize it in my magic bullet with some water, and strain it through the strainer bowl that goes to my juicer. Don't have to worry about juicing it with other fruits in order to get it juiced. It still comes out a dark green juice, leaving a much more pale green pulp than my manual crank WG juicer left, (so I returned it!) Faster and easier too. I was so thankful for this option, and not having to spend the extra money on a pricey juicer. Not sure about other nut milks, I use hemp seed in my magic bullet, requiring no straining, I love it!
