I have the trustworthy Champion, its an antique though, so I CAN do a wheatgrass in a pinch. Also when friends want one, they are fairly easy to come by at a CHEAP price.
They are soo darn heavy people 'give' them away at sales.
If I was to start over I'd get the 'Green Power' with the magnet stuff & all the attachments (I'm big into asian cooking and would love to try the Mochi deally).
There is something about Samson-style that turns me off. Even though the 'Angela' has a lifetime warranty, I doubt its worth the price.
I had a friend who got the complete setup for the same price as a new Champion.
I wouldn't necessarily buy a NEW Champion off the shelf though...hold out.
If I was blessed more monetarily I'd get the 220V Green Power from Hong Kong.
Professionals like the Ruby or Norwalk are great BUT all they do is juice.
