Any Recommendations On a Juicer?

I am hitting you up once again for your help.

This time around, I would love to know if any of you have any recommendations on a good, reasonably priced juicer.

I bought one from Target a couple of weeks ago and my family fell in love with it and all of the good for us stuff we were drinking.  I really felt like I was giving good nourishment to my family that we don't always get.

  Two days ago, it started leaking from the bottom.  It's now back at Target, and I am on the hunt for a new one.  I cannot spend more than $100 on one and would love for it to be cheaper than that.

I have heard a little about the Juiceman Jr., but really know very little about any of them except for the one I bought.

Any suggestions?

Any ideas?

Also, do any of you experienced juicers know if you can juice oranges in a regular juicer or do I have to have one with a special citrus attachment?

Thank you...Thank you...Thank you!!

Look forward to any help you can offer this newbie juicer.

Oh-We used to have one that worked really good..and I think it was just a "cheapie". I want to say it was a Proctor Silex but I wouldn't swear to it. I went through a "juicing craze" for about 2 years. It did NOT do oranges though but we drank tons of carrot juice, etc. Also...if you juice carrots, etc. I always saved the pulp for carrot cakes, soup, etc. Have fun. I just tried to look it up in my Consumers Reports Digest but they don't list juicers in there. Hugs- Diana

We splurged on a Breville Ikon. It was somewhere between $100-200 (maybe $150?) a few years ago and we've had no problems. You can stick a whole apple in it even!

I have no clue, but I wanted to read other comments to see what they said. I would love a juicer. I'm so cheap that I've never bought one.

I have a Breville Ikon and I load it with fruit and veggies and barely get anything. Maybe mine is just a bad one. My husband had juice at his friends house and he used a couple apples and carrots and it made a giant amount of juice. His is Jack LaLannes and I will be selling mine and replacing it with that.
