If you are looking for a power juicer, then you may have come across infomercials for Jack Lalanne’s power juicer and may be wondering whether it’s a good choice of juicing machine.
Jack Power Juicer Elite and Power Juicer Pro are popular choices thanks to Jack Lalanne’s popularity. Jack LaLanne is a great man and an inspiration to many people around the world. He was preaching the benefits of eating natural foods and lifting weights long before it was accepted by the mainstream. He inspires people to change their unhealthy habits, start exercising, and JUICING!
When I was shopping for a juicer, I considered Jack Lalanne Power Juicer as a possible candidate for my juicing machine. You may be thinking about it too – perhaps you have seen one of the infomercials for Power Juicer on TV, or you admire Jack Lalanne’s work and want to buy one of his creations.
Power juicer pros include quiet operation, beautiful design, powerful 3,600 RPM motor, stainless steel construction, dishwasher-safe parts for quick cleanup, super-sized detachable pulp collector, and lifetime warranty on the motor that offers peace of mind, even with daily juicing. It’s also affordable at about $150 for the Power Juicer Pro and $99 for Power Juicer Elite on Amazon.
However, after reading mixed reviews of Jack’s juicers on Amazon, I decided to choose a different juicer (Breville 800jexl Elite – it costs more money, but in my opinion it’s worth it).
I’m not saying that you should not buy the Jack Lalanne’s juicer, because there are many customers who are happy with their power juicer’s performance. For some people it seems that Power Juicer Elite and Power Juicer Pro are a welcome addition their kitchen. They say this electric juicer produces fresh fruit-and-vegetable juice quickly and easily, it’s easy to clean, and relatively quiet. However, there are also many negative reviews, that you should go to Amazon and read them before you make your purchase.
Even the Jack Lalanne’s latest juicer edition that has been redesigned with a new, sleek stainless steel finish and some great new features, such as a non-drip spout and stainless steel mesh filter, has very mixed customer reviews. Although in the product description you can read claims that it produces up to 30-percent more juice than other juicers, there are customers that complain that the remaining pulp is quite damp which means the juicer is not extracting all of the juice, and that it does not do a good job juicing leafy greens – and may leave you with whole leaves in the pulp container. It also makes a lot of foam.
The cheaper model, Jack Lalanne’s Power Juicer Deluxe Electric Juicer, is said to have some serious drawbacks, too, including chute hole that is too small.
Although none of the two models I looked at is a bad choice, and either one is definitely better than having no juicer at all; in my opinion there are better juicer choices out there.
