Why would someone invest the money and space in their kitchen for an electric juicer? I know I felt the wrath of the ice cream maker owners back when I suggested that an ice cream maker was a unitasker, and I’ll probably hear from the pro-electric-juice-making contingency on this one, but I don’t understand sacrificing counter space when you don’t have to.
Yes, I’ve enjoyed freshly squeezed orange juice and I can say that it is better than anything store bought, but I’m not going to run out and purchase a dedicated electrical appliance for my juicing needs. Isn’t a space-saving, hand-held, non-electrical juicer just as effective? Do you really save that much time? Can you even throw the electrical one easily into the dishwasher? I can’t justify the storage space for something that I can easily purchase at the grocery store or make just as well with a small, hand-held device.
I’m also curious as to how many oranges it takes to make four eight ounce servings of juice? I really have no idea. I’m sure Jack Lalanne could tell me, and he would gladly take my $130 for one of his electric Power Juicer models, too.
