Imagine planning a party and making enough fresh-squeezed lemonade for everyone, being able to drink juice without worrying about added sugars, or being able to get your full serving of fruits and vegetables in one, tall glass. Jack LaLanne’s Power Juicer Deluxe can do all that. The juicers are well known in the lifestyles of celebrities and health gurus. InStyle Magazine states that the Jack LaLanne Power Juicer is Paula Abdul’s “prized piece of equipment.” Mr. LaLanne’s Power Juicers have also made appearances at the parties of Joan Rivers, Guliana DePandi, and Ashley Tinsdale.
I recently got a Jack LaLannee Power Juicer Deluxe and I am amazed at everything that it can juice! The Power Juicer Deluxe is more powerful than its sister product, the Power Juicer Classic but doesn’t have all the perks of the Power Juicer Pro. However, the Power Juicer Deluxe has all the essential elements, including its sleek stainless steel look. Its surgical-quality stainless steel blade and high performance motor are powerful enough to juice almost every fruit and vegetable. According to the Jack LaLanne website, the Power Juicer Deluxe “produces up to 30% more juice than other juicers.” And the best part is, the nutrients are preserved in the juice and you can add pulp to taste from its pulp collector. The peels don’t need to go to waste either because the Power Juicer Deluxe comes with a handy recipe book with baking ideas for the excess fruit. Most pits need to be removed before juicing, but other than that the prep time is almost nonexistent.
While the preparation is simple, the clean-up process is a bit time consuming if you’re washing it by hand. You have to unscrew multiple parts and wash them individually. The pieces are dishwasher safe, so sticking them in the washer makes the task faster. Regardless, if you make juice daily taking the machine apart can get to be a bit tiring, and leaving it unwashed for an extended amount of time is out of the question or fruit flies start to swarm.
All in all, the Jack LaLannee Power Juicer Deluxe is worth the money. It is durable, makes great tasting juice, is powerful enough to handle tough rims and skins and saves you money on juices in the long run. It gives you the ability and freedom to create your own juice, always fresh and always nutrient packed.
