So, I’ve been working at this new healthy diet. I suppose diet isn’t necessarily the right word, as it’s been an effort to get rid of the last of the processed sugars, bleached flours, and other processed nastiness off our plates. In the book we’re working from it recommends juicing a number of different drinks.
Now I have to be honest, after seeing how frou frou most juice shops are, and questioning people who drink things like lemon grass and the like, I felt a little of my “I build things and get dirty” manliness going out the window. I just don’t see myself as one of those guys that runs around wearing bike shorts and drinking awful smelling green concoctions and the like. But then I realized there were kitchen power tools involved, and that made me feel a lot better.
So, I started doing my research on the juicers on the market and readily determined that there’s a “good” class of juicer in the $200+ range, and a “not good” class of juicer in the sub $100 range. While I’m all for buying the best tool on the market, whether it’s for the kitchen or my garage, I just couldn’t stomach forking over $300.00 for a tool that I didn’t know if I would use or not.
After digging about for a while, because I knew it would eventually pay off, I stumbled across an inexpensive juicer that was comparable to the high price ones.
Based on it’s excellent ratings I decided to give it a try. I have been happy with it so far. It’s a manly, sturdy and well built product, and I forsee being able to get a good return on my investment in short order. It’s a little annoying to clean, so I make my wife do that. 🙂
