The Champion Household 2000 Plus is the pioneer in masticating juicer made in the USA. It has been around in the market for the last 20 years and used to be a favorite with veteran juicers.
This model has not changed much from its original design since more than two decades ago. Unlike the other juicers which operate on a single ‘worm’ like gear, this Champion uses a high-rotating cutter blade (not unlike a centrifugal juicer).
The Household model is the lowest range of the Champion single gear juicer, made for home use. It comes in four colors — white, black, silver and almond.
There are also the Commercial Heavy Duty versions which look exactly like the Household model with the differences being in the type of steel used to make the motor shaft, and the wattage.

Overall, the Champion is a “reasonable” juicer. The design may be a little outdated but veteran juicers love the durability of the machine, some boasting of using the juicer for more than 20 years. Whether you will like the juicer or not depends on how “fussy” you are. Some love it, some hate it.
With some patience, you may get great-tasting, rich juices out of it. With impatience, you may not like the handling and maintenance of the juicer that requires frequent oiling by coconut or olive oil. I personally think that is an outdated technology when other new masticating juicer models have very little maintenance requirements.
The Greens Attachment
The maker of the Champion Juicers recently produced the “Greens Attachment” which is an optional attachment for the Champion juicers. Formerly, complaints were that these juicers cannot juice leafy green vegetables without the juicer heating up.
The Greens Attachment can attach to Champion juicers that were manufactured from 1988 onwards. If you already own a Champion juicer, you may want to purchase just this attachment to widen your juicer’s ability in juicing greens.
It is great for juicing wheatgrass, but due to the high RPM speed, the wheatgrass may get spit out quickly. The juicer maker suggests that you put the pulp in a second time to get more yield out of it. But, do not put the pulp through the third time as it gets too dry and may cause friction that heats up the attachment.
