Any slow juicer lobang/promotion/sale to recommend?

I'm scouting around for a slow juicer, and so far it seems that Hurom looks like the best brand, but looks quite ex (~$600++). There's one sold in qoo10.sg but a sales fella (who's selling yet another brand) said that that model has lousy/unauthentic parts and its motor spoil within a few days to a few months. This particular sales fella said that his model uses the same motor and parts from the original factory and is offering a 1 yr local warranty.

So many ppl giving their own opinions (almost all with vested interests) -_-

Anyone got any slow juicer to recommend that he/she has been using and is happy with it? (which, hopefully, is a cheap and good model )

Well, naturai is using the same engine but assembled in China, so it's cheaper... Tang is selling it around 269.

Great thanks for the heads up! Btw how do you find it? A bit worried coz made in China and all that... but the price difference (Hurom at $499+ vs $250+) is really compelling... (damn why don't they sell juicers at a cheaper price... -_-)

did a search online and found a shoddy website selling hurom juicer, so i thought they could be just an online seller and after smsing them it turned out that they are the distributor of hurom. Asked a simple question on , whats the price of their juicers. They replied asking me for my name, and what they want to introduce to me me and things. But all I wanted was the price. Without letting me know the prices after exchanging about 10 sms, they even hinted that their juicers are the premium and that I can't afford their juicers.. I was thinking of going to tangs to get my hurom.. now I think i'll skip hurom all together. If getting the prices is so difficult.. I cannot imagine the RMA process...

2 types basically vertical or horizontal[single gear or twin gear].

if u are getting vert ones such as hurom, try to get another screener as it is the part that will break/crack faster compared to other parts, depending on how u take care of it. motors usually last v long.

[QUOTE=kkboy1;78135364]I saw Hurom HU400 Harvey norman is selling at $618

$618 is the retail price. I finally got mine at a cheaper rate.

The juice I get is quite good, but for certain stuff (like carrots, celery), I had to cut it into quite small chucks in order to prevent the machine from jamming. To its credit, the machine was still going strong after kenna jam x3 times (i.e. it didn't die from it).

To Gillin: don't let a single bad apple spoil the whole barrel i think the quality of hurom is quite gd, my friend is a fan of it.

Of coz, there may be some brands that are cheaper but still comparable in quality to Hurom. If you have experienced those (after trying both models), pls share

I am currently using a hurom. Got it more than a year ago when
best denki was having a promo, think the price is about $450-480.
In recent months saw some really cheap ones at tangs, as cheap as $200+.
The juicers all looked quite similar, maybe can give the cheap ones a try.
Usage wise, sometimes the juicer do get stuck, and the troubleshooting in
the manual doesn't really solve the problems ... lol
It takes time to get used to the juicer.
I love to juice but I really hate to clean up the juicer.

Nope, you still need to scrub and clean thoroughly certain parts.
