Great Juicer for Your Business

by bruce on May 9, 2014

Many brands and models of juicers are available online. Hamilton Beach, Green Star, Omega, take your pick. Nevertheless on the subject of the best juicer, Aussie manufactured Breville will be the top choice among countless web based retailers.

When considering juicing power, Breville has an average of 400 watts more than equivalent versions of various other brand names.

The juicer is made of stainless steel and the sturdiness is exceptional. I've been making juice with a Breville juicer for years yet it remains as powerful as the first day.

"I'm a busy mom. I work, I cook, I chauffeur and somewhere in there I need to find the time to juice. I can't wait 30 minutes for a machine to work through veggies and fruit *at low temperature* and 100% dry pulp to get my juice. I can take out 10mins. 5 mins to prep the veggies and fruits (I peel my organic carrots before I juice them as an example, or to peel oranges, or wash the spinach). 1 min to juice it all. Literally. 1 min. Regardless of what you throw at it. And I juice for four glasses at a time. And then 2-3 mins for cleanup. So the long pole in the tent is the prep - not dealing with the juicer - which is great." - S.Gill on the Breville JE98XL Juicer

"This thing is POWERFUL, especially compared to "Jack LaLanne". It is so powerful I usually don't even use the pusher except to cover the top so your ceiling doesn't get covered with stuff. Other reviewers have mentioned that tendency. What wasn't mentioned is that the reason it does that is because the motor is so beefy that stuff will shoot straight up." - Ed Osworth on the Breville BJE200XL Juicer 

The good thing is, there is no need to slice the fruit or veggies when juicing because of the large chute. The juicer delivers fast. Washing up afterwards is effortless. The juice that results is delicious.

While it is more expensive relatively, it's really worthwhile over time. This product is most effective for business owners for instance a fruit juice store's proprietor since fruit will be completely juiced resulting in minimal or even no waste of fruit which therefore means reduced expenses and higher profits. Look for a great juicer that will change your lifestyle. Look for a Breville juicer.

Comparison Between Zojirushi Products

by bruce on April 18, 2014

The Zojirushi bread machine has a couple of durable models. Many users do not really know which model is better. Zojirushi has two models that are very well known and has been users favourite for many years.

The bestselling models are such as BB-HAC10 and the BBCC-X20. Both of them are good bread machines and both of them have different functions and advantages. For one, the BB-HAC10 is a compact bread machine that doesn't take much space and it is suitable for college students or small families.

It can make good bread and has functions such as making pasta dough, cookie dough and lots more. It is cheap and durable as well. The BBCC-X20 is recommended for big families and families who love making breads. It is a little pricey but worth the price.

It has more functions compared to the BB-HAC10 and it does a better job in kneading and mixing dough. Overall, If you want something cheap and good, the BB-HAC10 might be the right choice and if you have more money, go for the BBCC-X20.

"See, we bake mostly whole wheat breads and such breads are hard on a machine. That is why the two paddle set up of the Zo' was so attractive. While I know there is only one motor, I thought the two paddles could knead the tough dough better. So far (a week into it), the Zo' is working great." - Ross A. Seymour

"Finally, I decided that Zojirushis could simply NOT be topped. I was right. This bread machine has worked wonderfully and reminds me of my parents machine from the early 90's. Mixing is complete and the Preheat function is an absolute MUST for proper ingredient preparation and yeast activity." - Amazon customer
