  • Starting out - What Juicer/blender to get?

    Hey guys (and gals),

    Looking to incorporate a healthier diet of juices and smoothies into the diet of me and my family.

    Not sure which blender/juicer to go with.

    Breville?
    Blendtec?
    Vitamix?

    They all seem to offer something a little different. I'm hoping to get the most versatility out of the new machine I purchase. I'd clearly like to make the best tasting juices so I/we will actually be able to drink some of the recipes on this site, but don't want to be limited to only these juices.

    I've heard great things about the Vitamix and Blendtec, but they are blenders so I'm not sure how the juices made from these machines would taste.

    I'm more worried about getting the right machine than the price (but obviously don't want to waste $$).

    What would you go with if you were starting out and didn't already have a good blender/juicer?


    Thanks in advance for any help!

  • VitaMix (plus strainer for juice) or "Breville Juice and Blend"?

    I'm looking to start incorporating more fruits and veggies into my families diet. I'm looking for a versatile machine and trying to decide between the "Breville Juice & Blend" or the "VitaMix Turbo Blend VS (5200)"

    My thoughts on the VitaMix are that it can do so many things. It might not be the best for juicing, but I've heard people using it as a juicer by simply using a strainer to separate the pulp and the juice.
    * Will using a strainer result in a similar juice as using an actually machine designed as a juicer (like the Breville)?

    The Breville Juice and Blend advertises as a machine that can do both tasks (juicing and blending) in one single machine.
    * When using it as a blender, would it function more like a I low end blender or more like the high quality or a VitaMix?



    If you were looking for one machine that would leave you the most available options to use it for, which one would you go with?


    Thanks for any help!


  • Another "Which juicer is right for me?" question

    I?m looking for my first juicer. I just recently started getting into a healthier lifestyle by making green smoothies (Kale, Spinach, Swiss Chard, etc? mixed with frozen fruits). I purchased a Vitamix 7500 to get started and have enjoyed the results. I've been drinking these green smoothies for breakfast and dinner (most dinners anyway) for a little over a month. I feel better and have lost about 10 pounds. One of my favorite parts is how quick and easy it is to make green smoothies with the Vitamix....and extremely easy to clean up after (just throw some water in the blender, add a little soap and turn the blender on).



    Now I?m looking to get into juicing and want a good quality juicer. I?m not exactly sure what I?ll be juicing more of at this point so a versatile juicer would be important. I?ll start with juicing leafy greens along with some fruit (like the smoothies I?ve been making), and venture out from there. So the juicer will definitely need to be able to juice leafy greens really well.



    If I?m actually going to use this juicer often, it will need to be easy to use, assemble and disassemble, and very easy to clean up after using. I?ll gladly pay more for a juicer that is easier to clean up because it?ll mean I?ll actually use it. The quieter the juicer the better as well, but that is not as important as ease of use and cleanup.



    Given the above, what juicer(s) would you suggest I look into?



    Thanks in advance for any help!

  • Juicing with a vitamix. Is it as easy as using a strainer?

    I have a new Vitamix that I'd like to use for some juicing. Is juicing with a vitamix okay simply by using a strainer to separate the pulp from the juice?

    Or should I just stick with making smoothies with the vitamix and forget about the idea of trying to juice with it?

    Do any of you use a vitamix and strainer for juicing?

  • Any idea why my tongue is getting very sensitive?

    I'm just getting started with eating more fruits and veggies through smoothies made with my Vitamix.

    I'm 8 days in and my tongue is very sensitive. Nothing to severe. Just annoying and a little uncomfortable.

    I've been drinking a smoothie every morning and eating as normal the rest of the day. With only one green smoothie a day, I'm a little surprised my tongue is reacting as it is.

    In these smoothies, I've been mixing greens and fruits. For example here are two recipes I've been drinking:

    1.) Kale, Parsley, Blueberries, Pear
    2.) Spinach, Apple, Banana, strawberries


    Any idea why my tongue is becoming so sensitive? Any idea what I should do to alleviate this issue?


    Thanks in advance for any suggestions!!!
