06-07-2009, 07:37 PM
Hi all first post. I have decided to try and detox and get healthy. I am reading the juice fasting bible and although its not written as scientifically as id like I get the point. So i am thinking of doing 2 weeks of juice fasting followed by 2 weeks master clense. My question is i have a kitchenaid 600 and i have the Fruit and Vegetable Strainer Attachment. Will this be good enough to makes veg juices or should i buy a green star? anyone know what type of juicer this would be (i.e. centrifugal, masticating...)? thanks in advance for all the help i am a little nervous and dont know where to turn for answers.

i have no idea... the kitchenaid 600 looks like a mixer for cakes and breads... so i would assume it wouldn't make juice???
i love my greenstar :D

The 600 is the Proffessional Series. The Juicer attachment is for Citrus. It has a Strainer for Fruit and Vegetaables for Sauces, now as far as making Smoothies with that I don't know
The Green Star is a Masticating juicer, Its good for all juices, Greens, Wheat Grass, Fruit and will make pates from Nuts etc. I like the JackLalane for most juices, its Cheap, usually $100-. That will get you started and you can invest in a Green Star later usually starting at $400-$500-
I love my Breville® Juice Fountain® Plus. You can get it from Bed Bed and Beyond for 120 bucks with the 20% coupon. It's a great juicer.

the only problem with centrifugal juicers, which is what the jack lalane and breville juicers are - is that you don't get a high yield of juice from your produce... so you use more to get the same amount of juice AND you need to drink it immediately as the nutrients start to break down right away.
if you invest in a good quality juicer like a champion or greenstar then your juices last for 24-36 hours!!! makes a huge difference in my life. you also get way more juice from your produce. i've had both and the greenstar is definitely the best!
Yea, but is the Green Star 4-500 dollars better then the Breville? Breville does such a good job and I'm amazed how much juice it gets from fruits and Veggies and the pulp is dry. I never leave my juice sit anyways. I drink it immediately, so saving it isn't a issue with me. Plus, I've seen videos of the Green Star and it seems to take forever to juice something? It seems slow and it looks like they really had to work to get the items juiced.
