JUICENUT-we can't follow your link to your page because you have it set to 'private'.

I am also having a hard time finding a good juicer comparison table. If anybody could put up a link to one, it would be appreciated.

I have a masticating Juicer that I LOVE! It's the Omega 350 VRT. It excels at juicing leafy greens. The only thing you need to worry about is the pulp getting stuck. I just chop up my celery/kale/collard greens before I feed them in. It truly wrings every drop of juice from those greens and the pulp comes out looking like wood fiber...dry, dry, dry! I think my juicer was worth every penny, and I'm so glad I have it! Like with any juicer, it has it's pros and cons (con would be it doesn't do the best with carrots. go figure. and the pulp getting stuck) but if you know how to work it...and I do!...you can get great amounts of high-quality juice from it.

If you want a masticating juicer, make sure that the juicer says so. The most popular and least expensive versions are all centrifugal, meaning they have a blade inside, and a screen that spins and when produce hits the blade it send juice one way and pulp the other. Most experts will tell you that this method oxidizes the juice far more than a masticating juicer.

Masticating juicers use no blade and simply force the produce through a reducing cylinder. As the produce gets squeezed into a smaller and smaller space..... there comes the juice.

I personally have a Jack Lalaine as well and it did me just fine on my juice fast and at no time did my juice come out warm.

My Jack LaLane (not spelled right) is a centerfuge. It does not heat.

This morning i Juiced a cucumber, apple, beet, head of iceberg, 2 bunches of parsley, pound of spinach, less than a pound of collard greens, banana......

I recycled the juice to keep the vitamin content high .... ... instead of adding more water with each batch. Ran it through a sieve twice to eliminate fiber. Wound up with 8 or 9 cups of very green stuff :-) I Osterized crushed ice in each container to have a nice cold drink. drank it ALL! for breakfast.

The reviews I find online do not state wheather the juicer is centrifuge or auger. i want a juicer that "masticates." grinds the food without heating it.
Still learning!
