Acme Juicer Model 6001
- Product Review (submitted on September 6, 2011):
have owned a Acme 5001 for over a decade, and decided to go with the 6001. I stopped juicing for a while and have gone back to it, since I feel the difference. The juicer is simple to operate and I clean the unit once a day. Clean up is simple, if you use a filter. Since the pulp is so dry, with a filter one only needs to slightly pull it away for the sides and dump the contents into the trash.
I might mention if your mixture of pulp is not from something too unusual, it makes a good starter for muffins.
Once the the pulp is gone the juicer is very easy to wash, Then I can have it ready to go for breakfast. I always juice carrots, celery, radish, beets, apples, ginger and spinach (you can find a lot of recipes for these). It is also much easier to do my grocery shopping that way. All these items juice well. The spinach does not extract as much juice as does in a masticating juicer but I believe this unit operates better than the masticating juicers overall. I usually run items like strawberries, blueberries, bananas, mangoes, papayas, oranges, pineapple and grapefruit (whatever is in season) through a blender and mix in protein powder rather than running them through the juicer.
I encourage you to buy organic produce if it's available. Since you are getting all of the good stuff by juicing, you will probably want to avoid the chemicals they use on non-organic foods.
