After years of using inferior juicers (ones that clog after one use or heat the juices), I did my homework and decided to spend a bit more money to buy a commercial grade masticating juicer. The one small (almost insignificant) drawback is the smaller food shoot. This requires more chopping of foods, but the resulting juice is amazing. Clean-up is super quick and literally takes me 1 to 2 minutes total (vs 10 to 15 with centrifugal juicers), there is almost no foam and absolutely no heat build up. If you are serious about juicing, then seriously consider the Omega J8006 juicer. It's the best juicer I've used since I've started juicing 10 years ago. To your health!
