ive also been thinking about not getting a new juicer but rather a better blender (im liking the ktec but am gonna plug along with my cheapie one cuz the ktecs $4oo :eek: ) and adding a couple cups of water then fruit or vegi and blending to a liquid then straining (this just for fasting purposes , when not fasting ide just make smoothies) . i bet youd get more out of your produce with this method and the blender and strainer would be easier to clean than a juicer . plus the blender does other things . so im looking at going without a juicer . im gonna blend a pineapple tonite or tomorrow to test the method and i'll report back on it .
well i put a couple cups of water and half a pineapple in my cheap blender and it blended up pretty quick . then it strained easily for a good juice .
plus it taste better just as a smoothie with out straining . so im not buying a juicer , just a better blender when my current one gets turned into drift wood . and the only time i'll strain the pulp is on a juice fast . the juicer just became obsolete in my house .
