Pros:You might get a couple of good juices.

Cons:It's not a matter of if..it's a matter of when..it will fall apart.

The Bottom Line: When shopping for a juicer, I recommend that you don't buy the Jack Lallane juicer.  Google the juicer and see why.


I probably got about a good twenty juices out of it.  Then it fell apart.  It has plastic parts on the spinner thing that deteriorate over time. 

When I first starting using it, it seemed to have plenty of power.  It was fairly quiet and it put out some halfway decent juice.  I especially enjoyed having carrot apple juice.  It was able to handle many combinations of fruits and vegetables with ease.  Cleanup was pretty much what I expected.  It has a bunch of parts that needed to be cleaned after every use.  I did find that we didn't take it out as often as we would have liked because of the cleanup time required after using it.

All in all, we (my wife and I) thought it was a good product.  We had the stainless steel one, so it was fairly attractive.  It is rather big, so it took up quite a bit of space on the counter top.  We kept it stored in the storage room.

Now comes the fun part, and here's when we discovered that this product has come up for some serious reveiw.  It was nearing the end of our gardening season.  We had a ton of over grown cucumbers and squashes and so on and so forth.  Well, what I do with some of the cukes when we have an abundant supply of them is juice them.  I don't particularly like the taste of straight cucumber juice, but it's good for you.  I'll sometimes throw in a couple of taste enhancements..eg. celery, maybe some onion, maybe a pinch of pepper.  Well what happened is this thing here.  We took the machine out and during the juicing process, we discovered that the machine was not quite working the way that it should.  With a little more investigation, I discovered that the plastic thing that covers the metal spinner was made of some sort of cheap plastic material.  Ill tell you what.  If someone can come up with a part that could fix this problem, they could definitely open up shop, because they would get a lot of business.  I'm telling you that every single one of these machines is going to fall apart.  I could see that the plastic, even if you never use the machine, deteriorates over time.

Well that's my story, and I'm sticking to it.  It's too bad that some of my vegetables had to go straight into the compost bin.  When I shop for another juicer, I know that it's not going to be a Jack Lallane one.  And let me add a little side note to this.  I would never think that Jack Lallane would know about the poor design of this product, so I don't blame him at all.  It's the designers that screwed it up. 

It is my hope that this review helps you to make an informed decision when it's time to shop for a juicer.  A hundred bucks is a lot of money to me, so I wouldn't want anyone to have to waste their hard earned money on a product that sets them up to have to buy another one and then stick this thing in some kind of a closet or something.
