I was introduced to this juicer about five years ago when we first got into raw foods. We were eating about 6 cups of chopped vegetable a meal during a cleanse. It was suggested we ought to just juice them. Great idea. The difference in this juice is that it is a Juice Press style juicer. The vegetables or fruits are pressed slowly between twin gears, preserving the enzymes on the produce. It’s lasted five years and is so solid, I think it will easily last another five years for sure. My juice recipe is here.
