I saw it and I think the one by Anthony Worral Thompson (not sure if that not is exactly right) was one of the favourites but also one of the more expensive. I think the other favourite was a moulineux one but whereas with the first you could put items in whole with the second you had to cut them up first. The advantage of the second was that you could put it in your dishwasher and it was also cheaper. Hope this helps!
Do bear in mind that putting some fruits/veg in whole isn't always a good idea. Many of the juicing sites I was looking at actively discourage putting apples in whole as the seeds have trace amounts of cyanide in them. Not supposedly enough to cause harm, but not something I'd risk, especially if intending to give the juice to ds!
GeorginaA - whats that about apple pips? My DS eats them. He insists on eating apples whole (like Daddy) but eats from bottom to top rather than outside in) and the other day I gave him one while shopping and he was still eating it on the way home in the car in the dark. Anyway when we got home all that was left was the slightly chewed stalk. It was a few days ago so I'm not really panicking.
Bozza my FIL eats apples pips and all all the time, and has done for years. He SEEMS ok, and he's a doctor, so you'd think he'd know. Also, I seem to remember him saying something about the health properties of apple pips. I'll ask him when I see him at the weekend.
Bozza if they eat them whole I don't think there's a problem at all- it's the act of them being crushed that releases the cyanide apparently.
I have read an anecdote of a student committing suicide after learning in a lecture about different natural poisons by crushing a bowl full of apple seeds and eating the lot, but I suspect it's an urban myth
I bought dh the Magimix le duo juicer and a Waring Blender for his bday 2 years ago. They both get used EVERY morning. All the bits go in the dishwasher (its actually really fiddly to clean the juicer centre bit by hand). I wouldn't buy teh smoothie maker - a normal blender is just as good. Our options were expensive - but very hardwearing and so easy to use that we do use them. The blender can be used for lots of other stuff as well. I find you don't really need a recipe book, just make your own up.
