All juicers are a pita to clean until you get the hang of it. Each one takes something different.
Here are a few tips:
After cleaning, run hot water down the chute while it's running.
Get a really good brush to clean screens and difficult to clean places. The Samson, Green Whatevers and many others now come with those brushes.
Get a turkey baster and shoot water into harder places.
After juicing I always place most of the juicer over the sink to do the above so I don't have to clean up the counter.
Have fun and always, play with your food. :D
Oh! And be care-filled not to drop the small pieces in the garbage disposal.
What model of Breville juice fountain do you have? I just found out a store here carries them and they have two models, one is $169 something and the other is like $300.00.
Hi escucharla and all. I see now you did pick one :-). About how long does it take for you to clean the GS? My health is poor - and need something that's fairly easy to feed (mostly carrots) and clean. Thank you
It takes me about 10-15 minutes to rinse, wash, towel dry, and put back together. But, sometimes I just get lazy so I just make green smoothies (I use a vitamix pro series blender). I hope you feel better!
Thanks e :-). Sounds like you got a good one!
I get lazy and don't bother towel drying. Will save about half of those 10-15 minutes.

Revvell, I've had a champion juicer & Vitamix, both, for many years. I've been leaning toward the Samson Twin Gear b/c I need something for greens/wheatgrass, which Ill need to juice on a daily basis. It's a little high end, but if it will do greens/wheatgrass well, it might be worth it because it won't get used if it's too much work. I read your post about the cleanup, which sounds easy and very doable. I know it's my decision, but would certainly like your input....would you recommend this if you were juicing greens a lot? For health reason, I really need to have a good quantity of greens on a daily basis now. Thank you much
Well.. Green star makes great juices.. I'm quite interested in getting the most out of the veggies and have studied some of dr. Norman Walkers litterature on the values of these exelent juices. his norwalk juicer seem to do the trick. thou kind of expensive. 2200 bucks. should be worth it? i'm also pondering the possibility of constructing an own press device with some hydrualic equipment.. to first mix the stuff, then put it in a bag they use for pressing the cheeses and then use a homebuilt press. always good to make new experiences in any case..
I have a hamilton beach juicer and it RAWKS!
Me too. But I never towel dry lol... :o
