We have a Jack Lalaine juicer. I don't know if it's the best but we love it.

i have a jack lalaine juicer, and it does a great job. very little waste, and you can add the solid stuff to muffins, or breads for added flavor and vitamen boost. its a great value for $80 to $100. im sure the $500 plus juicers are higher quality, but for me and my family it works great. love the apple carrot juice

We have one of those as well.  I like it because it's sort of compact.

We have the Jack LaLanne juicer, The Champion Juicer and The JuiceMan.  I like the Jack LaLanne because it sits on the counter-top and  is ALWAYS ready to be used.  It's great for juicing citrus fruits and watering produce - like beets, carrots, apples, etc.  However it's not good for things like leafy greens and produce with less water in them.  The Champion, although VERY bulky AND heavy is GREAT for juicing the LIFE out of pretty much most things. I don't use i as much because it's BIG and BULKY and HEAVY.  I haven't used the JuiceMan in YEARS, so i don't have much to say about that.  LOL

I have heard good things about the Breville Juicer (I think that's the name). I'd like the Huron Slow Juicer (even though we already have a slow juicer). I'd just like a slow juicer that isn't the size of Texas or that weights 200 pounds.

I haven't had any issues juicing kale, swiss chard and spinach in the Jack Lalaine juicer. I just roll them up real tight and put an orange on top while it goes to town.
