ISO a Better Juicer

Recently, my mother found out that she has an auto-immune disorder that is causing her some trouble in her mouth and as a result, the doctor recommended that she start using a juicer to get some of her foods, since she is having trouble chewing.

She bought one of the "Bullet" things, but doesn't like it very much and thinks that it doesn't work very well. She has an idea that she likes the Breville brand of juicers, but I don't know enough about that sort of thing (I would rather chew my calories whenever possible) to really help her find one. I wanted to sort-of surprise her with one for her birthday...Are the Breville ones any good? Are there others that are better? I know KitchenAid, but do they have decent juicers? Or would a blender just be better?

Any help would be much appreciated!
