Thompson, thanks for coming back - I need to check in my old computer to see if I already have a video to edit for steam juicers. Thing is, once you have one of these you'll find ways to use it. (I see a huge price difference between sites for the Norpro 619 - Amazon is about $60 less than Target.) And don't forget there is a marketplace with used. Read the reviews also - Amazon has several competing brands. The gauge of the pan is probably a factor here, and the volume. And the hose isn't rubber, it is going to be silicone. I have the Mehu_Maija aluminum one that actually came here from Finland at some point. I see the used ones are getting pretty high prices, and there is shipping included. So probably new is best (especially if the new ones can come with free shipping.)
On eBay I see a vintage Mahu_Maija used one with an old rubber hose. This is my model (I got it for $40 on Etsy 2 or 3 years ago), it works great, but I updated mine with the replacement silicone hose, and they cost anywhere from 3 to 7 dollars. Get the one with a metal fitting on the end and if you don't have the hose clamp, get that also.
