Can still cancel the J8006 order, is one clearly better than the other (this J0005 would be $54 less)
10 year vs 15 year warranty, either way it's a long time
any other clear winners?

The auger on the J8006 is made of "8 times harder" plastic to be "more durable".
"More durable" should mean it wears less. Weating less means less plastic coming off the auger and going into frut (& plastic) drink. Will probably just stick with the 8006...

I am guessing that it you get the 8005 and during 10 years the softer auger wears out/too much during normal use, through no fault of yours, they would replace it for free?

Very small feed on both... Anyone get sick of cutting the fruits so small and having to feed in so many individual pieces?

Thanks GunMan, one of the review pretty much states that; 5 years later they sent out a new for free.
Sounds like they're both solid machines with great service/warranty behind them

Some vegetables aren't all that fun to eat, especially in quantities. But, when you mix them with pineapples, apples, bananas, strawberries,...

I'm seeing youtube videos that say that it doesn't deal that well soft fruits like nectarines and bananas that well, and they are better for use with a blender?

Also, saw one that said that you can make crackers by dehydratin the pulp. Anyone tried it?

You keep on posting that, but it just makes you sound a bit unhinged. You don't consume plastic when you use the jiucer and even if you did it's inert and wouldn't do a thing to you.


No, it's actually not. The main thing you're missing out on is fibre, which of course is important, but the point is that it's impractical to chew as much veggies or fruits that would give you as much useful nutrients, as you can juice and drink.
Right on... try eating 3 pounds of spinach, 4 apples, 2 pounds of carrots and a lemon for lunch and see how long you go... now, try it in the juicer and enjoy living well for an afternoon.

Just keep in mind... although better than buying junk food... juicing can be expensive - especially organic juicing. 5 lbs of carrots can make a few cups of juice - I buy organic mini carrots at Costco which keeps the costs down..

To good health mate!

How ironic... I took a break from masticating just to read this thread... and now that I'm done reading, I return from whence I came.

It's better to do both. You'll get far more fruits and veggies by juicing, but you'll get that important pulp by also eating whole fruits and veggies.

Quote from TrickyKid View Post :
I also ordered the J8006 today, but I'll be keeping that order. I think it might actually be worth the extra $48 to me. Better handle, harder auger that's black and won't stain, better baskets, and five more years on the warranty.
I noticed the "to me" after you noted the $48 worth. Indeed, I agree, it may be worth that to many people. It would be a hard choice, since back in 2011 when I ordered it was a far greater difference. I went with the model in the OP, mainly because of the great warranty and I believed I'd find any problems in that time, also, in 10 years I'd probably be ready for an upgrade, assuming there is some new tech by then(which there very well may not be).

You can't go wrong either way IMHO.

If you notice the auger has abrasions or missing chunks that could be scary. But with either model, I recommend inspecting the pieces before and after each use.

Many similar reports, they are supposed to be a great company to deal with that backs up their products.

Agreed. However, when it's in juice form I can shoot a glass full of just about any kind of juice without any problem. I reserve the sweets for the thicker smoothies I make in the vitamix, which take a while to swallow.

Interesting idea on the crackers, I know we have used it in baking. I think I'll have to research that.

Costco certainly helps. My wife also frequents a few vegetable/fruit stores. You gotta shop around, bc it does get costly.

Not yet. It only takes a few seconds to prep. Especially if it's a 2 man op.

This amazon review: http://www.amazon.com/review/R1JY...hisHelpful
claims:

"It takes me a good 10-15 min. to juice two bunches of parsley and one bunch of kale, excluding clean-up, simply because you have to cautiously feed each item or risk a jam. The amount of juice produced is under 4 oz., enough green juice for one person. If I had to spend 10-15 min. juicing for each person (not including cleanup) in my household, that's a good 45 min. of juicing time plus cleanup."

Does this sound legit?

So, I'm seeing claims that a centrifugul juicer is faster and "better" (excluding concerns for potential effect of the higher speed on nutritional value) for most things excluding greens, which it cannot extract efficiently and a masticating juicer is much better at juicing greens but not as good for the other stuff and a masticating juicer adds more heat during the juicing process? Is this about right?

Do the 8005/8006 juicers process carrots, bananas, strawberries, pineapples, blueberries, rasberries at least adequately or better?

I guess my other question is: Is there a list of vegetables and fruit that this machine is not recommended for?
