I have the Jack LaLanne, but I don't really like it.  I want to upgrade.  Suggestions?

Have a juiceman machine, but its too much work to clean for regular use.  We recently bought a Bendtec blender and consuming the whole fruit or veggie, liquified, is healthier in my opinion than just extracting the juice.  Go Blendtec or Vitamix and you can liquify just about anything.   And super easy to clean up.  Add a cup of warm water and a drop of liquid dish soap, run it for a bit and rinse.  The base is built onto the Blendtec jug, so there is no separate base to remove and clean.

I have a Breville and love it. Had a vitamix years ago as well as a Champion. Like Brevile best of those.

I have a Vitamix and I do a morning smoothie - love it!  However, I also want to juice.    Twistedsteel, which Breville do you have?  That's the direction that I am leaning.

You can juice with a Vitamix, just use the nut milk bag (or cheesecloth) to strain. It's an extra step, but maybe easier than cleaning a juicer, and one less piece of equipment if you already have a Vitamix.

I like my Jack La Lanne. What don't you like about it?  It is pretty easy to clean I think. But this is my first juicer so have nothing to compare it to. I know you can get really fancy ones that cost more than $1,000.

It's too big for my apartment.  Also, I feel like I can get more juice out of a better juicer.  I'm aiming for the $200 price range.  Some of those juicers get pricey, I know!  :)

The smallest Breville is a good size for apartments. It's still big, compared to other appliances, but the smallest juicer out there I believe. It goes for $99.
