The Champion Commercial Juicer G5-PG-710 does so much more than juice! This masticating juicer will produce purees, sorbets, smoothies, baby food, nut butters, and the list goes on.

Before we go any further, I’d just like to note a comparison between the regular Champion Household Juicer 2000 model and this one. The only difference between the two is the wattage, and in some cases the voltage. The Commercial model simply delivers a bit more power, meaning it can handle tougher jobs with ease. And frankly, for the $25 price difference between the two, I would just go for the G5-PG-710 commercial unit. Having said that, Champion’s recommendation is that if you juice more than 12 oz per day, you should go with the commercial unit over the Household 2000.

Champion Commercial Juicer G5-PG-710 Pros and Cons

Pros:  Heavy Duty — Produces much more than just juice — Respectable brand — One of the best juicers on the market — Easier to assemble than a lot of other juicers

Cons:  It’s huge and heavy — Can’t handle leafy vegetables well, but there is an available attachment for them

 

Okay, so if you’ve read more than one of my reviews on juicers, you know that it’s my opinion that you’ll get more bang for your buck buying a masticating juicer. If you aren’t aware of the reasoning behind this, you can check out the main page of my juicer reviews and you’ll see why. There is one caveat with the Champion Juicer however. While nearly all masticating juicers will handle green leafy vegetables and nearly all centrifugal juicers can’t, the Champion is the exception to the rule. This juicer pretty much cacks when trying to handle things like spinach. However, Champion has come out with a new Greens Attachment to address the issue. So if you’re buying this model and greens are an issue, make sure you get the attachment as well. Other than that, it will pretty much juice anything. One reviewer even mentioned they could likely feed it a 2×4!

This juicer is huge. It weighs in at about 35 pounds, so I don’t recommend it for anyone who is frail, or in some way handicapped unless it never has to be moved. If you’re into weight training, have at it!

While the marketing material boasts a “large” 1.75 inch feed spout, you and I both know that less than 2 inches isn’t that big. There are juicers on the market that have a much bigger feed, but for all that the Champion Juicer can do, I think this is only a small draw back.

So all in all, I have to say that the Champion G5-PG-710 is one of the best juicers on the available. It’s big and bulky, but it can get the job done. Add to that you’re buying a brand that has been manufacturing juicers for nearly 30 years and some of them are still in use. How often can you say that these days?
