This is a great juicer. I have been juicing for years and this is one of the better centrifugal juicers I have used. It is still on the loud side but it makes great juice. The container that catches the juice is nice because it separates the juice from the pulp when you pour it. The juice comes out nice and see through. It is really pretty. The one major downside I have found is that if you push the fruit through too hard it eats away part of the plastic chute. From what I can tell it stops in the screen but I am wary of that. I think it is just a design flaw. As long as you can remember not to push too hard while juicing it is great.
