We believe that juice should be consumed right after they are produced
for the maximum nutritional and enzymatic value.
Why don't you sell the Jack Lalanne
When we saw a demonstration of the juicer at the
trade show, we were not impressed with the unit based on three main factors: 1. The
price/performance was just too much for the unit. 2. The short 90 day
warranty. We felt we could offer our customers a better value by offering
juicers that are as good or better than the Jack Lalanne power juicer that has a longer
warranty for less money. We choose to offer the finest quality juicers to our
Are the Wide Feed Chute Juicers better
than the Small Feed Chute (Normal Size)?
Yes and No. If you want to juice things
like carrots and apples, and other hard vegetables and you want it juiced FAST, then the
Wide Feed Chute Juicers are for you. On the other hand, if you want to have more
flexibility when juicing leafy greens, the wide feed chute juicers are less efficient.
When feeding in greens (spinach, kale, parsley, etc) into a juicer, the
smaller feed chute is an ADVANTAGE in our opinion, since there is more blade
contact time and the leafy produce can be waded up into a tight ball more easily and
pushed in with a carrot.
What is the best wide feed chute juicer
in your opinion?
The best wide-feed chute juicer in my opinion is
the Omega Big Mouth Juicer. I have had a sample
version of the juicer before it was released to the public. All I can say is that I
am impressed. Omega took their award-winning 4000 model and redesigned it from the
ground-up to include a larger feed chute. They created a winner. Its
long 10 year warranty (longest warranty for a wide feed chute juicer) and its
ease of cleaning make this the best wide feed chute juicer. It obtains an even
higher yield than the Lequip 215XL due to its optimized blade and basket design.
Shouldn't Everyone purchase a wide-feed
chute juicer? Is there any advantages of a small feed chute?
No. I do not believe a wide feed chute juicer is
for everyone. Wide feed chute juicers are good because they save time, since
you do not need to cut the produce, such as carrots and apples before putting them into
the juicer. They are fairly efficient at juicing these two items, as well as things
such as celery and beets, cucumbers, and harder fruits and vegetables. The drawback
to the wide feed chute juicers is that the yield may be less than when juicing with a
similiar smaller feed chute juicer. This really comes into play if you want to juice
something like leafy greens (such as kale, collards, spinach, etc).. So if you doubt you
will ever juice leafy greens, or dont mind the greatly reduced yield when juicing these
items, go for the large feed chute... Otherwise overall, I still prefer the normal
feed chute size, and the Lequip 110.5 would be your best
Isn't the Breville Juice Fountain Elite
800JEXL A good juicer? It gets great reviews everywhere I read about it? Why
does everyone give it high ratings?
Well, I have owned the 800JEXL juicer and in my
opinion, for $300.00 its not a good juicer. Here is why:
1. Does not yield a high amount of juice when juicing leafy greens.
2. Short 1 year warranty. Juicers we offer in the $300 range often have 5
Year - 15 Year Warranty.
Why does everyone else rate it so high?
Many "Professional Chefs" and "Gourmet Magazines" started rating this
juicer as "the best juicer" because (in my opinion) The marketing department at
Breville. It is a nice looking juicer. It does work well for juicing a variety of
foods. But the people that rate the juicer high, are your gourmet Chefs and other
Retailers and not "Juicing Experts". While we have sold many 800JEXL
juicers in the past, with many satisfied customers, I believe that $300 would be better
spent on a juicer that has a longer warranty, and will create a higher quality
Is the motor powerful enough in the
The Lequip 110.5 and Lequip 215XL juicers are two of
our best selling juicers. They are both designed with a quality induction style
motor that is very efficient, and is quite powerful. These motors are more
efficient, and do not need to be "as powerful" to produce the same high quality
results. For all the gear-heads out there, think of a stock 350 chevy engine in a
caprice classic, and compare that to a finely-tuned corvette ZR1 350 engine.
The Lequip Juicer is one of our best sellers, and the manufacturer backs up its high
quality by providing a 10 year warranty on the entire juicer!
What about the "LIFETIME
WARRANTY" on the Jack Lalane Juicer?
As stated on the Infomercial, the "LIFETIME
WARRANTY" on the Jack Lalane Juicer is for the MOTOR only.
It does not cover the other parts of the juicer. In all our years of selling
juicers, we have seen the part least likely to fail on a juicer is the motor. The
warranty on the rest of the juicer is only 90 days, which we feel is extremly short.
What about the claim that the Jack
Lalane Juicer makes 30% more juice, as stated on the TV commercial?
I would say that that statement is true based on
the juicer that they are testing on TV, (ie: they are using a cheap $30, underpowered
"department store" juicer to make the comparison). Lets compare
apples to apples. Just see our test here, where
we juiced with the Lequip Mini juicer and one of those "department store
juicers" and got up to 16% more juice. So the 30% more figure could be
accurate, based on the fact they are using a "cheap" juicer. I would say
they could not say that statement if they used a different juicer.
Here are some recent emails we have
received about the Jack Lalane Juicer:
I recently purchased a jack lalanne juicer. I am
very pleased with the performance and ease of the machine.... but not in the durability.
Watching your commercials your claim was it was "dishwasher safe" but after 3
times in the dishwasher the top portion of the juicer,(the white housing on the top)the
silver ring is peeling and tarnished!! After paying $300 i would expect better quality and
durability , if its not dishwasher safe don't say it is!! Thought after seeing your
commercial with the wide top spout and the way your blades and sytem worked, i figured it
would be wise to invest in a worthwhile machine........starting to have my doubts? -CC,
I just got myself the LaLanne juicer and I don't
like it at all. The thing looks the part, but it has problems. For a start, the juice
gathers in the 'basin' of the machine and you get very little out for what you put in. You
have to tilt it forward to try to get the rest of the juice out. The pulp clogs in the
rear and is difficult to remove. Worst, the apples I juiced came out warm! I got twice as
much orange juice from a hand-juicer than I did when juicing an orange with the LaLanne
juicer. Why do they talk about it on tv like it is amazing? It's big as well, and easily
broken.... Just my personal opinion. Tricia.
I just read CC's note and wished I had read this
site first. The Jack Lalane power jucier is NOT dishwasher safe. After only three washes
in my reasonably decent (Kitchen Aid) non-commercial grade washer, the feed tube became
deformed with a lumpy bottom that I only noticed after it got chewed up by the blade on my
next use. I am returning it after only a week and four uses! EDD, ON Canada
I bought the Jack La Lanne power juicer from the TV ADD. I had two years ant the tip (
plastic over metal ) broke.. I cannot use it ...They told me I need a new base that cost
ove $40.00, I was very upset but I used my credit card to purchase over a month ago. ... I
have not heard from them. One line is all about purchsing....Very poor customer
relations... I am very dissapointed with the juicer and and their service, I hope to get
it soon.... They seem to ONLY INTERESTED IN SELLING THEM..... - ID Toms River, NJ
your info on this website is great. I have read
the article about dissatisfied customer who did not like Juiceman Jr juicer. I have been
using this one for over 11 years, pulp from carrots is dry. I do not like the loud noise
but centrifugal juicers are noisy. I tried Jack Lalaine juicer but returned it since the
pulp had far more juice in it than pulp from Juiceman.- KK
Im a visual person, and want to see the
difference between the Jack Lalanne and the Lequip Juicers you offer.
Sure. See the YouTube Video Below:
