Reviews of the Champion juicer are mixed. While owners posting to Epinions and Cooking.com say the Champion is durable and relatively easy to clean, editors at Juicing.com say it's hard to operate. Many reviewers note that this high-speed masticating juicer heats juice, destroying some nutrients. Cleaning this juicer requires a special brush, and the cutting shaft must be lubricated after each use. At 25 pounds, this is one heavy juicer. If you're juicing for nutrition, reviews say that the Omega 8003/8005 (*est. $250) is a better choice: Its low RPM speed doesn't generate excessive heat, and it's just as versatile as the Champion juicer.

Editors say that the Champion Commercial juicer makes excellent frozen desserts and nut butters, but the friction it generates destroys enzymes. They also note that other models yield clearer juice.
