Not Sure About Home Juicing your CSA Share? A Member’s Review of a Juicer for Small Spaces & Starting New Habits
By Amanda Anderson
We settled on Breville’s Juice Fountain Compact, picking it right off the shelf at the Union Square Best Buy for just $99. We couldn’t be happier. We juice 1-2 times a week, which we’ve already increased since starting the CSA pickups. This morning, I made a delicious kale, cantaloupe, celery, carrot juice that would have easily set me back at least $15 (for 2) at B&H. Tallying up two large juices twice a week for five months, this little machine has saved us roughly $750! In other words, it has paid for itself 7.5 times already!
If you’re on the fence about home juicing, let me tell you a little bit more about why we like this little machine:
It really juices things The leftover pulp is dry and easy to dump into a compost bin. We tried recycling a bit and adding it to our dog’s food, but he wasn’t too keen on it. Another friend makes crackers out of hers - we are waiting for a cool day to try this recipe. The one thing that is a challenge, as is for every centrifugal juicer, is processing greens. We found that the juice is richer when we sandwich the greens inside a handful of other hard fruits or vegetables like celery or carrots.
