What will he be juicing? All kinds of things? I've only had experience with a couple of juicers. The citrus juicers always do the job for me, but then again that is obviously only with citrus fruits. The only other type of juicer that I have tried, I can't even remember the name, but it was similiar to the one that you always see the guy advertising on TV. All of the juice that came out of it was very frothy. This isn't really a big deal, but it may be something that you want to consider if he will be making juice and drinking it right away. Some people might not like the idea of drinking a frothy cup of juice. Other than that, it did a decent job.
