It is wet and miserable out this morning. I had planned to go to the gym but I got wrapped up in something I was working on and before I knew it my time to exercise was fading fast. I knew it would be quicker to just run outside here, but the cold and wind and rain made it less than appealing. I sucked it up, put on my running tights and my rain coat and headed out for a 4 mile run.
It wasn’t as bad as I expected. In fact, I was feeling so good toward the end I took the detour that turns my 4 mile run into a 5 mile run and was home in just over 40 minutes.
Today’s run came with a photographer at the end.
I was running home cause it was time to get out something new and shiny!
This thing is amazingly fast, and the vegetable shoot is amazingly big, I didn’t have cut or chop any vegetables. I peeled my lemon but beyond that, everything went in as-is. I made juice this morning in about a quarter of the time as usual!
And look! No foam!
The foam magically stays in the bucket after you pour the juice out. I think this feature alone makes the juicer worth it’s weight in gold.
The Breville is definitely louder than my beloved Acme juicer but the kids still slept through it. Clean up was about the same.
So yes, it’s true. I’m giving my old juicer away. To one of you! I am a lover of recycling and passing on items to a new home. I would much rather give this juicer to someone who really wants it rather than donate it to Goodwill.
This juicer is old and has been well loved, but it still works like a champ and pumps out the green goodness like nobody’s business. Maybe it can do for you what it did for me – it can be a way to see if juicing is for you without having to make a major purchase first. I will happily send this off to someone who really wants it!
Please understand that I have NO INSTRUCTIONS for this juicer. It’s the Acme Supreme Juicerator 5001 and you could probably find the instructions online with a little digging. I will be available by email to answer any questions because there are a few little tips I’ve picked up along the way. It’s easy to figure out and use though.
One more thing. Did I say this juicer is OLD? I think I did. There are no safety features that keep you from slicing off your finger. Plain old common sense will keep you safe but please understand that I am NOT responsible if you juice your own finger!
If you missed my demonstration of this fact last week, you can watch it here:
If you win, you’ll get all the juicer parts seen here!
I double checked with Zak’s aunt Ellen, the person who gave me this juicer back in July. She confirmed she does not want it back and was happy to let me pass it on. I told her if she changes her mind she is free to enter my giveaway, but I think it’s safe to assume Ellen is not going to be any sort of competition.
So! If you are lover of second hand things like me and want to give juicing a whirl – leave a comment on this post! I’ll decide on a winner Thursday night and will be prepared to ship it out to you on Friday, October 9th. I really want this to go to someone who truly wants it and will use it – so if you want it – make it known loud and clear! I’m not sure yet if I’ll decide a winner based on the creativity of your entry, something that makes me laugh or a passionate comment that brings a tear to my eye! If only two people enter I might just randomly pick a name out of my juicer hat. I haven’t decided yet!
If you’re curious about juicing, this is your chance to try it for free! Do you want it? Then now’s the time! Tell me that you do!
