View Full Version : My juicer just died...
11-10-2008, 04:43 PM
I've been waiting for the day... kind of! I've had a Jack LaLanne juicer for about 5 years now. It has had plenty of use and I wasn't going to purchase a good one until this one died so it's a good news/bad news kind of thing. Good news cause I can get a good one now :D, but bad cuz I have to fork out the dough for a new one! :mad:
I was thinking a green star, but I might be able to get a deal on a Champion. My boyfriend's mom has one and I don't think she uses it at all. Any opinions on either of the two, good or bad?
I am kind of excited. If my boyfriend's mom doesn't want to sell, maybe I'll hint at a gift card towards one for Christmas! ;) That's such a long time to wait though! :( Oh... what to do, what to do!

though its said the greenstar makes healthier juice because its the slow turning / masticating type , and that its also well built . and that the champion juice is a bit less healthier because it gets aireated and maybe heated a bit (in that vein ide be dropping ice cubes in with the produce to keep heat down) , the CHAMPIONS MADE LIKE A TANK = HEAVY DUTY .
ive seen like a 100 people say theyve had their champions for 30 / 40 years and still love them , and ive read hundreds rave about champs . plus have raw friends that love them . its like a heavy duty wash machine motor with a grinder on it = very simple / powerful . the thing weighs about 20 lbs and its all heavy duty motor ,thats why they last so long = that unstoppable giant motor . ide buy that champ at a bargain rate pdq .

Michigan is right. Champions last forever.
My Green Power, now Green Star is another "tank" with many years longevity still.
Depending on budget is how I would buy. Can ebay for pricing too. Best is to negotiate with b/f mom and see if she is interested in selling.
Both machines are great and yes the champion sure is heavy. I remember those days of having one.

maybe your BF mom will let you borrow it for a while, then you can see if that will meet your needs.

Jack's juicers can be purchased for $100-on hsn.com.

Well I didn't get a chance to talk with her this weekend, so I'll try next. My BF thinks she'll do it. Fingers are crossed! :)

I suggest you see if you can borrow it. You may decide you like it or don't like it, and she may decide to let you keep it.
that's cool if she sells it to you or lets you keep it, although i can't imagine anyone parting with it. :confused::p
Ebay is a good option, too. Along with low bidding, they're offering 10-30%off your purchase price around the holiday. I managed to snag a Kenmore water distiller for $75.xx shipped.
Was the Jack juicer that bad? I saw the infomercial for it & thought it looked good. Guess not. But it does look better than the one I got for $59.xx, I have to chop everything up, it's hard to clean AND i barely get any juice out of the thing. :o it's an oster i believe.
