I was reading a bunch of these reviews and had to write a post. I get a kick out of brainless people who spend a buck on something and expect it to perform like they paid 10 times more, or the ones that are just uneducated on a topic before speaking. I have had this juicer for 15 years now. Yes i have had to replace a few parts, but i have had to do the same thing with my car after awhile. I am an avid juicer and have used many different styles of juicers and some are good and others horrible. I always come back to this juicer. Not only does it juicer more than most juicers, it’s juice is sweeter than most, not sure why, but i think it has to do with the fact it crushes instead of cutting the vegetables. It is heavy, but if its heavier than others, than the components and motor are stronger and heavier, i would say that makes it better (so why do people complain about this???). It’s fairly easy to clean, for the most part you just rinse the parts off except the screen takes about 30 seconds to clean with the brush that comes with it. I prefer masticating style juicers over centrifugal type (better juice quality, volume and less foam).
No kidding, i bought it in 1996, it is weathered looking, but works like new, i’ll eventually buy a new one.
Have to say, this is one of the best juicer/green processors that i have ever seen. Does it all, their advertised claims are spot-on. Clean up is more time consuming than a cheaper one, but still not bad, and kind of fun once you get the hang of it. If you are on the fence about getting this or another one, i’d recommend this one because of its versatility and because of how much you can extract from the greens (pulp comes out dry) as well as the other fruits and vegetables.

Comments from buyers
“but good for everything else
, Best juicer money can buy.
, 20 Years of great juice
Love the juicer, works well w/ the gerson therapy. It’s been a workhouse 40+ days straight. Recommend a 4 cup pyrex glass bowl w/ this besides the one they give you to catch pulp. Here’s some background why to juice. Saw the beautiful truth and later the gerson miracle. Had a lump in my throat that was literally choking me when i ate. Bought the book, started juicing. I can swallow most of the time now and hope to be cured in time (been a month or so).
Doesn’t do apple juice well, but good for everything else.
One thing though; it takes a lot of strength to push the veggies through. Slow juicers do much better on greens like parsley and wheat grass.
I recently found out that i had cancer. So of course i wanted to fight it with healthy nutrition. I knew that i had to stop eating sugar because cancer cells love sugar, but i did not know what else to do. I have had a juiceman juicer for a number of years but no one could locate it. My friend had been bragging for years about her juicer and i read the product reviews on this site so i decided to buy this juicer. She had bragged that the pulp is dry which proved that this juicer removed all of the liquid possible from the plant. She told me that this machine crushes the plant at a lower speed than the juiceman so it does not get over heated and possibly kill the vital enzymes. You then have 72 hours to drink the juice. Hopefully the healing juices that i am drinking will help me live and be healthy.
This is the best juicer we have used and we have tried many. I had developed skin cancer and started using this juicer to juice 2 quarts of carrot and apple juice and 1 quart of leafy green vegetable juice, which i drink 8 oz. Glasses of spread throughout the day. It is quiet, easy to use and easy to clean. Even my children (8 years old and up) can use it safely. We also use it to juice wheatgrass, which almost no other juicer can effectively juice unless it is a wheatgrass juicer only. This machine crushes the food then presses it into a dry pulp squeezing nearly every drop of juice out of almost anything. If you need a juicer, this is the one. We only wish it came in a solid stainless steel version.
I bought this juicer to juice leafy greens. I had read at least a hundred reviews on various websites and everybody seemed to give this juicer two thumbs up in the juicing leafy greens department. But it was said that it didn’t juice fruits very well. All i want it for is to get the most out of my green. But i came to find out that it doesn’t do a very good job at all juicing collard greens or kale. Those are the main 2 i wanted to juice. I don’t care what screen you use (fruit or vegetable) or what knob you use on this juicer and how much you tighten or loosen it,(the control knob) it just won’t work. You’ll get a lot of pulp an unbelievable amount of foam and very little juice. It does a great job with broccoli.
I purchased a less expensive juicer, and after using it a few times, gave it to goodwill. It was an awful mess to clean, and i never felt like it was really cleaned well. This juicer not only gets every bit of juice out of your produce, it’s a breeze to clean it. No sharp blades, no hidden nooks and crannies. It dis-assembles and re-assembles quickly and easily.
We have had a green star juicer for over 10 years, never had a single failure. We juice about 2 gallons a week. Takes less than 10 minutes to clean up.
I’ve had my gp-1503 since 1994. I was leaning toward a norwalk until i stumbled upon this innovative, award winning juicer. The price and easy clean up, convenience of not having to wash bags and the high quality juice sold me. It has been in steady use for 20 years without any problems. I juice greens, carrots, apples melons, pineapple, tomatoes and every healthy concoction possible. Everything is a breeze although it requires a little adjustment of the outlet knob for melon and pineapple. Nut butters and seeds process beautifully, did i mention high quality juice?. Although i like to drink my juice immediately, i have stored it for two days without affecting the taste at all, i attribute this to the special magnetic gears that improves the taste of juice. After 20 years it is still going strong and i expect it to last many more. This was the first of its kind and now many have followed the twin gear approach, i’m glad i have the original.
