    Default Kitchen Aid Juicer Attachment

    I'm sick to death of my lame-o Cuisinart FP juicer attachment. It's
    way more trouble than it's worth. Anyone have/like/hate the KA juicer
    attachment? The only attachment I've bought for my KA is the meat
    grinder, which I am *very* happy with, but the juicer attachment just
    looks weird.

    And if you have a juicer that works a treat, I wouldn't mind hearing
    about that, either, I'm just really short on storage space right now.
    (I'm the vulture on the fence waiting for the housing market to hit
    bottom when we'll buy and get out of this rental.)

    TIA,

    The Champion juicer.

    http://www.championjuicer.com/

    Also good for making nut butters.

    I have one which I bought for a good
    price on eBay. Many are offered on eBay,
    but many buyers are seeking them, so
    prices are fairly strong.

    The flour grinding attachment is not
    highly regarded. The meat grinder
    attachment is no longer made, but
    available on eBay. Because it lacks
    a reduction gear, I would guess that
    the meat grinder attachment would also
    be a piece of junk.

    Not suitable for making the current fad
    of wheat grass juice. For that, you
    need a twin-screw juicer.

    I use it. I like it a lot. It's extremely powerful and it's easy to
    periodically dispose of the pulp without having to open stuff up etc etc -
    you just lift the trap, tap it out and put it back. Scarcely miss a beat.

    Easy to clean, too.

    I have the meat grinder, too, plus the pasta maker and sausage maker. The
    pasta thing I don't like at all and have gone back to my old hand-turned
    thingo.

    The sausage maker? You should have been here the day I tried to make
    chicken sausages on my own. There was stuff going in all directions. Ended
    up having chicken patties and I've been too scared to fit the thing up ever
    since.

    I'd call those extruders rather than juicers. I can't stand juice
    made by squishing peel to extract juice. It's not clear and it
    doesn't taste like *fresh* juice. It's only slightly better than made
    from concentrate... not enough that I notice or care. Give me a blind
    taste test and I wouldn't be able to tell the difference.
