Hi Meetup Member,
In case you may know of someone who's interested in buying a juicer - I found a super deal on a Jack LaLanne deluxe juicer. Got a fully guaranteed, factory refurbished model for just $60, shipping included. They are sold new for $120 plus shipping. See http://www.powerjuicer.com/order-deluxe.html
. If interested, call the customer service line.
This isn't a blender type juicer, so you can't make smoothies. It's an extractor type, which separates the juice and pulp. The motor is nice and quiet. But don't ask how mine works for a least another week or so. Mine just arrived.
By the way, if you order you will be asked if you want to pay an extra $5 to receive yours in just 5-7 days. I didn't pay the extra and still received mine in just 5 days.
