This juicer is really great. Before buying one, I did a lot of research on juicing and watched a ton of videos... So I came into this with a lot of knowledge and especially the science behind juicing and what to look for. This juicer is a slow juicer which uses less revolutions per minute with the auger. Which means, it spins at a slower rate than the fast juicers which produces less heat and doesnt oxidize the nutrients from what you are juicing. Which also means the nutrients will last longer in the fridge and not go away if your planning to save juice for later. Juices leafy greens amazingly, I have made already a ton of juices and they have come out amazing. This juicer does take time.. 20+ min each juice + cleaning due to the small chute. Sometimes it gets annoying, but the juice is important for health. This juicer is great for leafy greens... However if youre in a hurry I recommend a centrifugal juicer. These are okay and save tons of time. The best juicer is the one you USE... Constantly. Do not buy this juicer if you may find yourself getting annoyed with how long it may take to make a juice. Trust me.. Its not very long but enough to make you notice the time. Easy to clean, easy to put together, very simple machine. I recommend watching videos on youtube to figure out which juicer would probably be most preferable for you.
