Not my kind of juicer

By 

from Nesconset,ny

Comments about Sharper Image Super Juicer:

I don't even know where to start except my telling you the sharper image super juicer was a nightmare for me. Looks are very deceiving and when I bought it yes it looked great with a good price, but too good to be true. First of all, it took two people to actually use it one to hold the unstable machine and the other to shove the food in. The second problem was I noticed was a lot of wet left over pulp that was backed up in it and a disaster. I tried taking a lot of the pulp to run it through and that did nothing. It also took me a lot more produce to get the amount of juice that I didn't have to with previous juicers. Not happy and never used again. Terrible I wouldn't recommend. It's too much of a mess, does not work well, costs more in produce than it should, and over heats way too fast and I bet if I used it longer it would have smoked and broke. This is no longer in my house. It was returned very soon after the first and last use.

Last resort

By 

from USA

Comments about Sharper Image Super Juicer:

This juicer is just all around a bust. I bought it thinking Sarper Image is a great store and this will be a great juicer. The spout where the juice comes out is poorly made and leaks juice everywhere which makes everything known to man become sticky. It does not do a good job of juicing whole fruits either. It is definitely not sturdy because already one of the little plastic pieces has broken off. The juicer will also move around and fall down if you do not hold it while it is running. The pulp setting is also a bust because it will still leave pulp in the juice even if it is on the lowest setting. The only good thing about it is it is fairly easy to clean. You can take it apart easily and just wash all the pieces by hand. I would not recommend buying this juicer unless it is your very last resort because you get what you pay for.

Versatility/Number of Features
Nothing special about this juicer; it has the bare minimum of features versus other juicers.

Just okay

By 

from USA

Comments about Sharper Image Super Juicer:

The juicer does what it's suppose to do, juice, but I really feel like it could be overall easier.

Pulp Setting Effectiveness
So, the machine is good at separating the pulp and juice and the pulp is in it's own container which is very fine and can be used for whatever you want, compost, vegetable broth or trash.

Stability While in Use
I've had this juicer for four years now and it wasn't until I started juicing beets that it became unstable and the machine would have to be held down with a lot of force or it would literally come apart and spray beet juice all over the kitchen. When I held it down I could feel it trying to come apart and then still bright red beet juice will spray out just not as much. Since I have put beets through it it just hasn't been the same. Before I put beets through it it worked great.

Ease of Cleaning
This thing is a beast to clean. It comes with a brush which without might be impossible to clean the blades. I have literally soaked the blades overnight, rinsed and placed right into the dishwasher to be run. It never came out fully clean. Most of the parts are too big too put in the dishwasher and if you do they take up half of it meaning I have to run it sooner. After I run the blades through I have to empty it right away and scrub it with the brush it comes with. Again, this just shouldn't be this difficult. I really just end up washing it by hand and air drying it.

Durability
I will say that this unit has lasted quite a bit of time, but I also don't juice regularly. I don't juice regularly because of the clean up process. Also, it's held up through a cross country move and two sets of movers.

Versatility/Number of Features
It doesn't do anything but juicing, so no fancy extras to worry about or fuss with. It is simply a juicer and if that is what you are looking for you won't be paying extra for un-needed features.

Design
The black and metal together do look nice and it's all held together by the metal bar that comes up from the base. It has suction cups on the bottom which keep it in place when it's placed in the cabinet. One good thing is that it's not too tall or large around to not fit in most cabinets. I've seen much bigger and more awkward ones at the store. Also, the spout at the top is wide enough for a small/medium sized apple which is very handy.

Good for the price

By 

from Hockley, TX

Comments about Sharper Image Super Juicer:

For the price, this juicer is great. It is not excessively loud, and holds pretty stable when in use. It is able to juice apples whole, but I tend to cut them up anyways. I really love watermelon juice, but not ideal to use this machine for that. The juice ends up squirting out of the cracks. It also is not ideal for really small fruit like blueberries and grapes and baby carrots. They end up getting chunked into the pulp container without even getting juiced. I don't know if all juicers do this, but it leaves a layer of foam on top that either needs to be scooped off, or wait till it settles.

Stability While in Use
Has rubber feet to help stabilize it

Ease of Cleaning
There are a few components, but they are fast and easy to clean. Always clean it immediately after use.

Durability
The plastic parts could probably crack if you are rough with it, but still sturdy enough for everyday use.

Versatility/Number of Features
There is a spout that can be lifted up to stop flow of juice, and start.

Design
Comes with a small brush to help clean the screen.

Good Juicer that works pretty well.

By 

from Ardmore, OK

Comments about Sharper Image Super Juicer:

I received this as a Christmas gift and it works well. It isn't ground breaking or earth shattering in any way, but it does its job as a juicer so I can't complain.

Pulp Setting Effectiveness
I haven't had any issues with the Pulp setting, but i'm probably not the best judge of it since I enjoy pulp and I haven't really messed with the settings besides the setting that I use.

Stability While in Use
I haven't had any issues with the juicer not being stable.

Ease of Cleaning
This is my first juicer, so i'm not sure if they are all this unpleasant to clean but I think the clean-up on this system could have been implemented better with a slightly different design.

Durability
The juicer feels solid. It doesn't feel "cheap" or overly plastic.

Versatility/Number of Features
It has all of the features that I was needing, but i'm a simple person. This juicer might not be the best for you if you are needing a lot of advanced settings.

Design
I don't really look into design for these kind of appliances. I'm only looking to get a quality product that will last and work well.

Not a very nice juicer.

By 

from USA

Comments about Sharper Image Super Juicer:

I got this juicer for christmas and I certainly do not like it very much. It does not work very well, is too heavy and big, and just annoying to use. It's even hard to store. I just do not know what to do with it anymore.
It is definitely not easy to clean as the pulp does not all go to the compartment for pulp. So, that's pretty annoying because I do not want to clean pulp and nor do I want pulp in my juice. Also, the orange juice I made was pretty bitter not like the usual normal juice other juicers make.
I would definitely not recommend it to anyone to buy. I believe that it's not cheap either and it's hard to fit a tall glass underneath.

The Sharper image Juicer 8021S

By 

from San Diego, CA

Comments about Sharper Image Super Juicer:

very good. I really enjoy it.

Pulp Setting Effectiveness
If I could make it the Juicer better, I would make the the pulp setting more effective. I find the juicer should make more juice rather than throw most of the fruit or vegetable away.

Stability While in Use
its not very shaky. its a very sturdy machine.

Ease of Cleaning
the filter is kind of hard to clean. the pulp gets stuck in the filter can be sharp at the bottom. so you have to be very careful when cleaning it.

Durability
its very durable. its very strong and easy to use.

Versatility/Number of Features
It gets the job done and is very easy to use.

Design
I Love how is made very durable stainless steel with a wide mouth feeding tube,
