| I Tested Them- This Is The Best January 25, 2005
Reviewer: Ken Rohla from Daytona Beach, Florida
I was considering selling juicers as part of live food workshops that I teach, and I read so many conflicting reviews I bought or borrowed just about every decent (and several crappy) juicers on the market to see for myself which worked the best. Among others, I tested the Champion, Omega 8001 & 8002, Samson GB-9001, Tribest GreenStar & GreenPower, LeQuip Visor, JuiceMan (centrifugal), Healthy Juicer (manual), Tribest SoloStar, and a few other single augers. The SoloStar was the clear winner for amount of juice extracted, ease of use and cleanup, variety of produce it will juice, and price. It juices wheatgrass and greens as well as a dedicated wheatgrass juicer, will juice soft or hard produce equally well without changing screens or complicated modifications, and is the easiest to clean. The hardest part of a single auger to clean is the screen. The SoloStar screen is about 1/3 the size of other single auger juicers, making it much easier to clean, and the other parts are also easy to clean. The Omega 8002 has several more internal parts to assemble and clean, including two different screens which must be changed for hard and soft produce. Twin gear juicers like the GreenPower and GreenStar are a nightmare to assemble and clean, specially every day.
