Stoked and ready to start a 10 day juice challenge, my "fine for summer time" mission begins. It's been said, "The way you start, is the way you finish", I didn't start strong. I had a cheese burger for lunch. "Hey, I'm human! "I went to Target, only to find the juicer out of stock. Luckily Wal-Mart was near by . I picked up the GE 800 watt juicer for $49.00. I'd read several consumer reviews and it was recommended for first time juicers. Enthusiastic to start I picked up a bag of Gala apples, celery, carrots, pears , and fresh ginger. The machine had only four removable parts, and was simple to assemble. The machine was quite noisy, but powerful. The verdict: I got a decent amount of juice; the spout on the juicer is awkwardly short, dripping juice is inevitable; and you WILL have pulp. My biggest gripe is that it doesn't produce pulp free juice, but that can be remedied with an annoying, additional step of straining. Paint straining bags from the hardware store is recommended by fellow juicers. Other practical options include, cheesecloth, coffee filters, pantyhose and muslin.
