Best juicer for greens??

I'm looking for a juicer that can go well with fruit but also maximally extract greens. What do you all think? I was going to go with Breville 800JEXL but I read in some reviews it wasnt that great for greens? Any thoughts would be appreciated thanks:)

  1. I am going to recommend the Nutrabullet..You will not believe the power and easy clean get all the nutrients and all the fiber...I have tried juicers and this is by far a better choice...bonus: small footprint on counter.

      Interesting. I never knew about nutribullet. The only thing is that its not really a juicer?

    2. I'd recommend getting a masticating juicer instead of a centrifugal juicer. Especially for greens, I think you'll notice more oxidation with a centrifugal juicer (more foam, altered flavor).

      I have an Omega J8004. It's good for greens and great if you are mixing greens with hard vegetables (e.g. kale or spinach with carrot). You could do wheatgrass with no problems. The only thing it doesn't do well is soft fruits like oranges.
