I bought this juicer recently and the quality is nice. I have to admit I haven't really looked at an juicers in person. I bought this one because of the price and the good reviews on this site, but it does the job nicely. for the money. It's too bad that my Dr wants me to stop juicing because he says that it's caused my triglycerides to go up drastically. According to him, triglycerides are most impacted by sugars, which there are a lot of in carrots, etc. I'm going to keep doing it once or twice a week,, though, in case it was caused by something else.
