Our family has been drinking wheatgrass juice for generations. We have always used wheatgrass juicers made from metal, as far as I can remember. There were some painted heavy ones that would be permanently affixed on one corner of the kitchen counter tops. Soon smaller and more manageable versions were around but they were still metal juicers. My daughter bought a wheatgrass juicer recently, and she is now forcing me to buy one.
I was going through some vegetable and wheatgrass juicer reviews and found a couple of interesting electric juicers. Now, I am in true dilemma. Should I opt for electric juicer, or manual one, and if manual one? I was only looking at something lighter. I already have a nice stainless steel wheatgrass juicer. The price range is also so wide that it is difficult to decide. For example the VonShef Wheatgrass juicer is an electric juicer is available for half the price of Miracle MJ electric wheatgrass juicer. Both these juicers have interesting features such as parts are dishwasher safe, and can be used to make masticating juices from other fruits as well. If I could afford it, I would opt for the Nutriteam juicer, because it has auto-cleaning feature and can also be used to make nut butters. Warranty for motor is also for longer period. Many reviewers are impressed by this wheatgrass juicer, so if I had to buy any, this juicer would be the first choice. But I would have to spend almost 3 times the cost of VonShef. I am sure my husband would simply say no to the Nutriteam juicer. However, I might manage to convince him because of mincing attachments in which I can make the nut butters.
Of course, manually operated BPA free plastic alternatives also need to be considered, because basic requirement is just extracting wheatgrass juice. I liked the Typhoon manual wheat grass juicer. But if it is going to be as expensive as VonShef, then I might as well persuade my husband to consider Nutriteam.
