I used to buy fresh, squeezed orange juice for special breakfasts on feast days when the kids were younger. Now that I have older helpers, a juicer is more economical and makes breakfasts extra nice. Paul and I found this one, which is the best juicer we've had to date, at a garage sale for $5.00....SCORE! It rinses easily and is dishwasher safe. It's also very lightweight so I can put it away when I'm done and not be tempted to leave it sit on the counter top.
