View Full Version : are any of these a decent deal for a juicer?
07-12-2009, 05:24 PM
just curious if this is a good deal for a champion juicer.. model G5-NG853S for 185.00...
there's also an Omega Juicer Model 1000 for 125.00
juiceman jr for 40.00
jack lalane juicer for 75.00
they're used.. found 'em on craigslist.

Of those choices, go for the Omega.
I'd stay away from centrifugal juicers... I have a Champion, a Healthy Green (wheatgrass) juicer, and a Vitamix. Centrifugal juicers waste a lot of juice, and are a b*t*h to clean.

you could get a new champion for around that price .
and i bought a new champion juicer and didnt like it
so gave it to my mom
the omega model is the fast spinning type which are less
than ideal say the experts , plus you could find it new
for only about 30 more
same with the lalane which could be found new for a bit more
and my friend has a juice man and i dont like it
so i say ' cool your jets at this time ' :D
look for an omega 8005 , theyre the slow turning kind
that ive seen hundreds of raw geekists :eek:
are most raw foodists geeks :eek: , report at 11 :D

heres the omega i speak of brand new at 230 total ,
ide suggest searching craigslist etc for omega juicer
til you find your bargain . link =
the 230 one is second one from top , same as the top chrome one besides the finish

oh i found those on craigslist. lol people in my area just charge out the nose for used crap. :/ that's why i was asking if any of those were actually a good deal or not... and i guess it's "or not".. lol i'll just save up and buy a new one. so thank you all for your input!

as mentioned above i recently bought a champion juicer ,
well i bought it on line and upon arrival found the design
to be flawed as pulp oozes out of the shute . plus it spins
fast and makes a frothy juice . well the company i bought it
from totally blew me off and wouldnt exchange or refund .
then champion blew me off also
so from that i determined to never make a big buck on
line purchase again , unless maybe it was amazon whom
treated me well on a refund in past
so after looking over the terrain i decided when i purchase
my next juicer its gonna be from bedbathbeyond because
i can get a great omega - at a good price - and have the store right
there to return to on their solid refund policy
belows link to the omega there , its the chrome at 260 . but if you use
their %20 off coupon they mail out its only like 210 , that beats all
on line prices ive seen for the chrome one . and maybe they can get in the new one like you mentioned guitar guy . link =

ps - i called bedbathbeyond before and they said if they dont have it in store just come down and pay for it and theyll have it sent to store at no shipping cost to you . though i imagine you'd have to pay sales tax so it ups the price a bit

thank you! :)
i'll have to save up for it :) but it seems like an awesome juicer! thanks for looking that up for me! :)
I haven't read the other posts (sorry, it's late!). Our health food store sells the Champion Juicer on sale for $200. Sheesh! That's less than we paid over 25 years ago! *Ü*

I bought my champion juicer at a tag sale a few weeks ago. Paid $40 and I love it. Had used a centrifugal one in the past (pain to clean). I switch the veggies back and forth because it doesn't like to eat a lot of kale at once Neither do I LOL).I believe I will have to buy a new blade sometime soon but it works fine when leaves are pushed with wetter firmer produce.(again I think it just needs a new blade).
