Jack LaLanne Juicer
Yesterday I looked at the Jack LaLanne juicer at Costco.
Anyone using this on a regular basis?
How long does it take to clean it up? I read the directions on "disassembly" and it seemed tedious. Especially if I'm using it 2 or 3 times per day.
So, before I purchase, any pros/cons from users?
I have the Jack Lalanne Power Juicer Deluxe and I love it. Will this be your first juicer? This is the 3rd that I have owned, one reason is that there are no small parts. There are a total of 6 parts that have to be cleaned. All of the juicers that I've used and seen have to be taken apart and cleaned. I don't think you can get around that part. It does a really good job of juicing, no peeling and the onlt time that I have to cut up anything is when I juice really large apples. One other thing, I purchaed mine on Amazon.com and paid $85 I have seen this for as much as $142.00. So make sure you comparison shop for which ever juicer you decide to purcase.
Hope this helps.
I love my JL juicer
In response to your question about a Jack LaLane juicer. I LOVE mine. I got my juicer at Costco for about 99 dollars. It came with extra parts and a couple of books wiht information, recipes etc. I have had it for about 3 months and I use it every day. Before I got the JL juicer I had a Juice Man juicer. I liked that one too. It broke so I upgraded. In comparison I like the JL juicer better because it juices green vegetables much better than the JM, and I get more juice from the same amount of produce.
I have found that the JL juicer is very easy to clean. I rinse mine with hot water after every use. I also was it on the top rack of my dishwasher periodiocally. ;)
We have the Breville, which I believe manufactures the JLL juicer as the models are very similar.
We simply leave it on our counter top and clean it after our last juicing, or in the evening, whichever comes first. It is too time consuming to clean after every juicing, and besides that everything is enclosed so nothing really dries on it. It rinses clean with hardly any effort.
It seems Jack LaLanne is the winner!
Thanks for all your thoughtful replies.
It's easy to get bogged down with masticating vs. centrifuge, fast vs slow, top dollar vs. not out of my range, etc.
Actually, I'm using a $14 Hamilton Beach from Walmart. It's been in the family for at least 4 years, (not used heavily for all that time!) and it does the trick. It cleans easily enough, but I did notice pretty wet pulp, and that was bothering me. Veggies aren't cheap, and I wouldn't want to waste anything if I didn't have to.
I'm thinking about the Jack LaLanne, because the Green Power is just out of my range and I'm probably not going to be juicing 4 meals a day forever. I have a 14 year old Vitamix that I love, and I make the "whole" juice once per day.
But it all gets so confusing - heat vs not heat, pulp vs no pulp, it's enough to make one's head spin!
Needless to say, your insight is very much appreciated!
I have the Jack Lalanne power juicer that I ;ve had since late Noveber. The only thing I hate about this and ALL juicers is cleaning ;)
But seriously, to juice greens, I bunch up the greens and stick them in--like dandelions, parsely, spinach, collard grees, cabbage ...........
It's been sturdy enought for me to juice apples everyday and put pices of watermelon with rind and seeds.
did you have any specific concerns?
I bought mine on sale for $99.00

Hi everyone....this is my first post but I am glad to hear some positives about the JLL juicer after hearing so much negative. I am new to juicing and bought my JLL over a month ago and was beginning to wonder if I bought the right juicer. I have nothing but good to say about my JLL. Easy to clean and never had a problem with it yet. I juice grapefruit, apples carrots celery cucumber oranges and all kinds of greens. It does well on everything.
I love my juicer. I put a bag in the pulp catcher so I never have to wash it. Makes clean up even easier.
My husband and I just upgraded from a Waring to a Breville and we love, love, LOVE it--haven't stopped using it--clean up is a breeze. Just made a ginger, apple, celery and red cabbage drink for my tummy :)
