Great juicer from a great company
There are a lot of juicers on the market, and to be honest, there are newer generation cold press slow juicers that run at lower RPMs now than the Raw Juicer 5000. At 65RPM, the RJ5000 is still quite slow and very suitable to extract a lot of juice from most all fruits and veges. I own a Vitamix and simply love it, but decided to grab this juicer as a few of my kids prefer thinner juice style drinks over blended smoothies that the Vitamix excels at producing. The very first juice I made with the RJ5000 was a pure orange juice (at the kids' request) and I must say, it was the best Orange Juice I have tasted in my life. So sweet and fresh and aside from preparing the fruit (took about 10 minutes to de-skin a good dozen or so oranges and quarter them ready to juice. The actual juicing took about a minute and produced about 1500ml (1.5L of juice). I chose to buy this particular juicer in large part to support a great health food and lifestyle company which is Raw Blend. I love my Vitamix and recently also purchased the Sedona dehydrator. The staff are extremely friendly, very knowledgeable and helpful, plus I know that should I have any product issues or warranty claims, they will be handled efficiently, and more importantly, locally!
