Just use normal blender is fine. As long as you wash it properly. Just keep it simple mate.

My opinion is that if the end result is in a drinkable form - then I'm a happy man.

Expensive blender, if I'm not mistaken. Etc, orange if put in including the seeds all will blend nicely, til serbuk like that so you can drink it normally. Others may need you to filter the extras which possibly make the blended juice has less of its nutritions and vitamins.

WTF?
You'd have to dry it before blending to get powder form lah. It doesn't apply if you're blending into puree.
And not all drying methods are destructive, bla bla bla science stuff.

Anyway, those are high power blenders, that's why they are expensive.
I don't really trust the Taiwanese marketing-scheme blenders. Too fancy.

If you can find industrial/commercial kitchen blenders (e.g. Waring form US), they are slighty more expensive. But they are built like a tank, easy to use & simple design.... no fancy-pansy colours and pretty shapes and sizes of their Taiwanese counterparts.

They are expensive because through research, they found the optimal rpm and also the optimal angle in which the blades are fixed.
This allows the blender to hit the molecules in the fruit in a way which will make its nutrients much easier to be absorbed by our bodies, increasing the quality of the juice.

Trust me, I have a PhD in Food Blending.

OK seriously, in a nutshell,
expensive blender = more horsepower = faster, better (smoother) end product, no wastage (seeds etc)

expensive ones (more specialized for juicing)...can blend fruits/veggies into finer particles and usually have hard enough blades to pulverize the seeds which is where most nutrients are.plus i think their motors are designed to generate less heat (generated through blending) that would destroy nutrients in the juices..
i havent really checked up on those facts,its all hearsay haha..
what has anyone gotto say about ladyship blender?

Add ice lah (or cold water). Duh!
Not that you're blending for such a long time that the puree is cooked.

Screw this crap and get Waring. X^D
Waring stuff are made for commercial use and labs.
It can probably blend a grenade and still come out in 1 piece. LOL!

It's simple to use. Just place the jug on the motor & start blending.
No stupiak locking mechanisms, no twisting and turning, no weird-shaped ladle/knob (because its jug is so well designed to blend evenly), no thin plastic jug, no moving and bouncing when blending stuff (its rubber feet is huge & it's heavy), no erratic blend-stop-blend-stop rubbish (main reason why they malfunction very fast).

Seriously, once you've seen a Waring heavy duty blender (the MX 1000 series) and heard the sound that it makes while blending... I doubt any of those high class marketing stuff can even compare. laugh.gif
Just look at the size of its base (where the motor is):

TS,
Do you want a juicer or a blender? They're both different.

mine costs RM1.5k. its a juice extractor..

instead of the usual 4 blades, it have 6 blades. it blends n stop for a second everytime until its fit to be drank. apparently it extracts the nutrients from the fruits/vege via breaking the molecules using a certain speed.

the blades are made of titanium/tungsten compound so that it cant mesh other steels.

My mother's Ladyship juicer seems to have problem, sent for warranty last week. Bought them end of last year if I'm not mistaken. Something to do with its motor.

Those with spin-stop-spin-stop cycles (Taiwanese brands seem to like this feature) seems to kaput pretty fast. My mom have one of those Seiketsu ones. Died 2 months after warranty expires.

I suspect the reason they need to stop every few seconds is because the motor is not be able to handle the power and might over-heat. Keep repeating this spin-stop-spin-stop cycle, and eventually something will break down.
Then they come up with crap pseudo-science excuses: "to avoid over oxidation of food mixture. This mechanism is in full compliance with organic food standards."
Seriously, WTF? Made me LOL!

Any heavy duty commercial blender would pulverize whatever fruits you have into smooth puree in less than 10 seconds. You guys should see how I blend a WHOLE pineapple into puree. Hah hah hah!
I don't think any of those 'high class marketing' blenders can do that. brows.gif

I have a Green Power juicer from Korea. Cost me RM2300 in 2002. Now probably cost much more (if the model is still available). Blender and juicer are different. Juicer is only for juicing and it runs at very slow speed, much like those sugar cane juicer used by roadside sugarcane drink hawkers. It has two stainless steel gears inside to slowly grind and squeeze out the juice. It's meant more for juicing hard yet juicy fruits/veges such as green apples, carrots and beet root and of course sugar cane (but need to chop the canes into smaller rectangular pieces first). I'm very satisfied with its performance. Google for it if you want to find out more.
