Our apple trees are groaning so as usual I'll be freezing tubs of cooked pulp to see us through the winter. We'll also make a batch of apple wine.

I'd like to invest in a juicer because I can't see the point in buying apple juice when I can make my own. Can anyone recommend one that's not going to end up in the back of the cupboard?

Merlot some years ago I bought a juicer so that we could have healthy juices due to DH having health problems. I did a lot of research and found one with a heavy duty motor that would juice anything! It juiced carrots and absolutely anything and everything. Brilliant. However, the cleaning 😱 It took forever to scrape out all the gunk leftover and then scrub and clean it. Mine is one of those that now sits at the back of the shelf gathering dust. I think it was called a Duo something (been so long since I've seen it I can't remember). Hopefully, someone else can come up with one that works well and doesn't take too much cleaning.

We bought a juicer and recipe book.
Nothing we juiced tasted remotely as nice as bought juice. Ours was a pain to clean too.
We sold a juicer and recipe book.

It's a philips recommended by Jason Vale who got me into juicing to kick start weight loss years ago. There's obviously a newer one available as mine is a good few years old, used regularly and takes whole apples depending on size.

Thank you, everyone. I've looked at the latest Philips juicer and it seems they are dishwasher friendly.

Remember that juicer I was thinking of buying? Well, we had so many apples we bought one of these instead!! grin

I personally use the breville juicers. Having done a lot of research it looked like one of the easiest to clean (which after a while gets tedious!)
Its great, no problems so far.

I like Breville juicers too, at home I have Breville BCP600SIL it works good and it's easy to clean. By the way it looks really stylish on my kitchen grin. But my sister uses Mueller Austria Juicer Ultra She says that comparing to mine it makes juice from apples, carrots etc.
If you want here I came across a good comparison. It is clear and easy to follow.

Merlot, now that's a proper juicer.

Will you be into cider making?
