The juicer I ordered arrived earlier this week! Big thanks go up to Miss Merideth for providing the contest I won -- a giftcard to CSNstores.com which enabled me to get a great discount on a high end juicer! I definitely wasn't expecting to win but I'm glad I did! I wouldn't have been able to easily afford this wonderful juicer. Here's what I purchased:
Isn't it so sleek and modern looking? I ordered the Breville BJE200xl after an endorsement from the lovely JL Goes Vegan and reviewing lots of customer feedback. I am definitely someone that looks for personal recommendations and combines lots of research into learning more about products before I make impulse decisions...but especially for those more than $50. I have no problem splurging on something under $10 that I don't know very much about, but when it is something that I have to invest in, I know I should do my own research.
Anyways, I've been really happy with it! My only concerns have been that it is large, a little loud, and overall cumbersome to clean (there are several parts and it must be cleaned ASAP). BUT I think all of those issues come with pretty much any juicer. I feel as though it is really effective at juicing large quantities and all the juice it has produced I have enjoyed immensely. It's slightly time consuming but I've used it every day since I received it! It's been a great start to my days as pre-breakfast or an afternoon pick-me-up.
Oh, here's the mountain of oranges I initially went through. Is there anything I can do with these now? LOL...
I haven't felt dramatically different, but I can definitely consider doing some sort of cleanse now. I do enjoy the fresh feeling of a fresh and fruity juice. I've enjoyed carrots (the most often) apples, celery, cucumber, oranges, and ginger all in different blends. I love that I can easily reap the benefits of such large quantities of these!
Are you cautiousabout your large purchases? // Are you a juice junkie? What is your favorite blend that I NEED to make!?
