Hello to my fellow food lovers :)

Recently, my husband began making healthy food choices. I am proud of him for being able to do this and I want to support his efforts. Not too long ago, he mentioned that he would like to have a juicer. I would like to purchase one for him as one of his Christmas Gifts but, I do not have a fortune to spend on one. Because I am not much of a cook, I know very little about related products. For this reason, I wish to ask if any of you could recommend a good juicer at a reasonable price that would also make a wonderful Christmas gift?

Sincerely,
Gehanna

My sister bought a 40 dollar juicer at wal-mart about 6 years ago and it still functions perfectly. What you want is a basin for the pulp to go into, it should come out very dry, and a spout for the juice to come out of.

Don't throw away the pulp either, complete the drying process either in a dehydrator or oven and they make great fillers or even snacks. I'd say don't go with the cheapest brand, but you shouldn't need the most expensive either.

Hello icerose :hi:

The idea of saving the pulp would never have crossed my mind had you not mentioned it. :) We have a dehydrator that would work perfectly.

Thank You very much for your reply.

Sincerely,
Gehanna

Good luck, I hope you get a lot of use out of your juicer, I know I need to get one for myself because I adored it when my sister had it in the house.

put the pulp in biscuits. It adds some color and aroma which will go well with the dinner
