Hamilton Beach HealthSmart Juice Extractor


This is a juicer for the beginner juicerhead. At right around $35 you can purchase this juicer with little pocketbook pain. It juices well for the price, and requires very little maintenance. The juicer comes apart very easily, and all of the plastic pieces are dishwasher safe. This can make a great first juicer or upgrade from a simple citrus juicer.  However, the hopper is relatively small so you will have to take some time to cut up produce well. The juicer does produce a lot of pulp, so some customers get creative and use the pulp for things like compost piles or soups.
