But really, has anyone here ever used a juicer before? Do you have any idea how annoying it is to clean those monstrous machines? I think the average juicer's size and complexity is what turns people away from using it regularly. Bad for us, good for trendy new juicing shops.
My parents actually invested in one of those Jack LaLanne juicers about a decade ago. At first, it was awesome. We were juicing everything in sight. Weight was being lost, and health was rearing its head. But unfortunately, just like every other impulsive TV infomercial purchase, our juicer was retired after a few short months. This is sad though, because I really do like the idea of juicing and I wish we kept up with it. So if anyone has a simpler solution to juicing which doesn't involve taking apart and cleaning a Rube Goldberg type apparatus, please let me know! In the mean time, I'll stick to smoothies.
