|Healthy Juicer, the affordable manual wheatgrass juicer Features & Specifications The Healthy Juicer is the easiest, most efficient and most affordable manual wheatgrass juicer available Most people know about the extensive health benefits of juicing, but nobody enjoys the process of setting up the juicer and worst of all, cleaning up afterwards. The Healthy Juicer is rugged, efficient, and best of all, easy to use and clean! Designed to handle leafy greens There are two types of juicers on the market today. Centrifugal and masticating (meaning to crush and squeeze). The main benefit of a masticating juicer is that it crushes the fruits and vegetables as opposed to shredding them as your average centrifugal juicer does. This process of crushing and squeezing extracts more juice and also has less heat build up than from the high speed at which centrifugal juicers work, which destroys the enzymes and other vital nutrients. The Healthy Juicer produces a healthier juice! Have you ever tried to juice leafy vegetables such as parsley, spinach or even cabbage in a centrifugal juicer? A good portion of it is wasted and just passes through as these juicers do not have any crushing ability. Vegetables are expensive today, especially organic ones. Why throw your money away by not extracting as much juice and nutrients as possible from them?

glad i found this juicer its exactly what i was looking for
The best juicer you can get in this price range. Since it's a masticating juicer, you'll extract as much juice as possible - more than centrifugal juicers. At this price, you can't go wrong. Requires a little elbow grease, but it's not straining at all. The handle moves very easily since it's so large and has all that leverage behind it to torque the cylinder. Suction works well to adhere the juicer to flat countertops while juicing. Works for grasses, leafy greens, and hard fruits. Basically, anything but bananas, berries, and anything else that you can mush with your hands. I've done cucumber, wheatgrass, apples, carrots, spinach, parsley, ginger, celery, kale, beets, lettuce, and lemon, all with no trouble. It takes me about 45 minutes to make 9 servings (3 days) of juice at a time. Cleanup takes about 2 minutes. The pulp makes great compost or animal feed. A few tips: runs the pulp through the juicer a second time to extract any leftover juice; cut large fruit and veg up into smaller pieces (the smaller the better); go slowly with the crank handle; start with fibrous produce, then alternate between fibrous and less fibrous fruit & veg, and then end with fibrous (eg. celery, apple, celery, apple, lettuce, lemon, beets).
