With help from a holiday gift certificate, I decided to try out this juicer. Our old one was too big for the apartment, and was annoying when it came to clean-up. Emily's review at TheKitchn.com was glowing, and so is mine. I've used it for two weeks and can verify that it's easy to clean, juices with very little foam (often a problem in faster, centrifugal juicers) and it's not too loud. Yes, it's pricey, but if you juice a lot, this is the way to go.
