Wheatgrass Juicers- Q & A

Greetings fellow wheatgrassers! Today, I wanted to address the most common question we get on the phone and in email.... "what is the best wheatgrass juicer?" We would love to hear what you have to say about your wheatgrass juicers. Post comments below or email me! Thanks!

There are so many things to think about when buying a wheat grass juicer! If you just want to juice wheatgrass you may consider the best option as a Manual Juicer.

There are three good ones available each has a year long warranty and is made of stainless steel! (beware of cheaper plastic juicers they often leak and are not reliable, and beware of cast iron or tin because the have a tendency to rust over time, we do not carry these because of their poor quality)
The Four Reliable Manual Juicers are:
1 Back to Basics Stainless Steel Manual (1 year warranty, longest on the market, best priced)
2 Hurricane Stainless Steel Manual Juicer (this one has a newer design and juices really well, our #1 Recommendation, it is the sturdiest and best designed manual)
3 Miracle Stainless Steel Manual (this one is like the hurricane only with a matte finish)
4 The Z-Star Manual (a manual model of the Solo Star Electric, very good feedback on this one)
Each of these manuals comes with a trade in value of $60 toward any Electric, so if you decide to upgrade later there is no risk is first trying a manual.

Now the next item of importance! If you plan to juice everything like carrots, apples, beets, celery, etc along with Wheatgrass and Barleygrass, then the best option is a Multipurpose Wheatgrass Juicer. They are so versatile!

Here are are Electric Multipurpose Wheatgrass Juicer recommendations based on experience and customer feedback:
1 SoloStar by Tribest (This juicer is known for having the best juice yield! I have one at home and it gets the pulp very dry. I have done carrots, beets, and apples as well as lots and lots of wheatgrass and it has held up great! It has a 5 year warranty. Our Recommendation)
2 Omega 8003 and 8005 (This juicer also has a 5 year warranty! Many have raved about the Omega. It is one of the most attractive juicers for the kitchen- the 8005 in Black and Chrome. Also it does all kinds of nut butters and will juice all vegetables and of course wheatgrass. Very good feedback on this juicer!)
3 Samson 6 in 1 Juicer (This juicer is much like the others and has a few really good things about it as well. It has a 5 year warranty on parts and the best part is it comes with a 10 year warranty on the motor. It will do all vegetables and wheatgrass! Also Available the Samson Ultra.

For those looking to do strickly wheatgrass, and lots of it (commerically etc) we recommend these heavy duty juicers made by Wheetena and one by Miracle.

1 WHEETENA MARVEL RED LABEL Heavy Duty, quiet and fast for excellent extraction of wheatgrass or barleygrass!
2 WHEETENA WORKHORSEGreat for restaurants or juice bars. Heavy duty, long warranty. Juices wheatgrass and barleygrass.
3 Miracle Pro Green Machine MJ575 Powerful juicer for wheat grass and other Leafy greens. It is stainless steel! (they mounted the Miracle Manual to a motor)
