I've just started and I love it. I have a question about Kale. What is the best form to buy? Are they all the same? I tried the bunch, but it was a pain to juice. I'm using a bag of Kale greens. Also, they don't produce much juice for all the product you put in. Thanks.

    Dinosaur Kale. That said, the greens don't produce much juice, but that juice the best nutritionally speaking. That is why I use a masticating juicer. I get a LOT more out of that than I did with a centrifugal juicer. There are tricks to making a centrifugal juicer work with the greens, but why? Anyway, Dinosaur kale is the best I have found.

    Bagged kale tends to be more leaf and less stem. Sadly, hard flat leafs like kale don't juice well in centrifigul juicers, and tend to fly into the waste bin without producing much juice. Whole leaves work better, but most of the juice comes from the stems, not the leaf. Because of this, I rarely juice kale, it's just a waste of money.

    If you can get your hands on a good masticating juicer, then you can juice kale efficiently.

    An alternative to kale is collards. Collards are flat leafed also but have much more thickend portions to the leaves, and I seem to get quite a bit more juice from them than I do the equivalent amount of kale.

    Wow! Thanks folks. I have a Breville BJE200XL as Joe recommended. I guess it's centrifugal. I just bought it and it works fine. I'll try to collards. I hope they are as nutrinal as the Kale Joe suggests.
