Good starter juicer

4

I've had this juicer for many years now, and it still works great. Though, I don't use it daily. The basket/ filter/ blades piece is sort of hard to clean. You'll need a brush and some patience. Everything else can be taken apart and rinsed easily. It doesn't have a huge feeding tube, but it's not too bad to quickly cut things. It does a pretty good job of getting all the juice! If you want to juice something really fibrous (like celery), save it until last because the stringy bits will wrap around the blades and make it harder to juice everything else without cleaning in between.

I love juicing but hate to clean this thing😞 it's so easy to set up and to use its fast! And can grind up every fruit and veggie you can think of but when it comes to cleaning you have to get out and old toothbrush to make sure all the cracks are clean! But if aren't lazy it's perfect πŸ˜ƒπŸ˜ƒ

Esy to use; hard to clean

Juice was delicious. I didn't like the cleanup. Pulp Setting Effectiveness Pulp would get stuck in the strainer and not let the juice flo through Stability While in Use The juicer was very stable while in use. Ease of Cleaning I thought the strainer was very difficult to clean. The pulp would get stuck in the screen and would be very difficult to clean Versatility/Number of Features It could only juice(one option only)

Good for juicing

5

The juicer is a very good juicer that is because it is very strong, it can juice carrots, apples, and a lot more other vegetables and fruits. Plus its easy to clean and is not heavy like other juicers. It has to be the best juicer I have ever used. I would recommend it. Stability While in Use The juicer is very stable it does not shake or fall over while juicing. It has a pulp container on the back which is good for collecting the pulp. It's very light but very stable and believe me it is very good at juicing. Ease of Cleaning It is very easy to clean, you just have to remove the pulp container and then you can clean it. You can also take apart the inner parts of the juicer to clean the blade. The exterior of the juicer is also easy to clean a wet clothe is all you need. Durability I have been using the juicer for along time and I have to say it is very good and durable. It always runs at full power and it has never slowed down for what I know.

Decent So Far

I have had this juicer for over a year, but just recently took it out of the box to put it to use. It has only been used two times, but during these two experiences, I will say that this juicer is "okay." For being named the power juicer, I'm not really sure it has all that much power. It does seem to struggle with certain items, particularly leafy greens that can get a bit stringy and don't have a great deal of bulk to them to help them pass through, and we also had some trouble with carrots making a really loud grinding noise when going through. It is a pretty big juicer, taking a large amount of counter space, and it's not that pretty to look at, which can be problematic I guess. My husband and I are both new to juicing, so I would say this juicer is doing the job for us for now, while we are just getting the hang of it. But it is pretty difficult and annoying to clean, so I really see myself buying a different brand in the future if we really stick with juicing on a very regular basis. Versatility/Number of Features Really no extra features - just juice.

It works better than I thought it would!

This power juicer works pretty well. I had received this as a Christmas gift about 3 years ago and it is still working good today. I wasn't sure that this would hold up that long, but it did. I just used this last week to make some juice. I will say that it does take up a lot of room and can be hard to store, but you will find that with all juicers. I have tried many different fruits and veggies and it has worked with all of them. You do have to cut some things up into large chunks, but it goes fast. I liked that the motor was pretty strong on this. I also liked that the container catches all the pulp well. It can be a little messy to clean, but the nice thing is that the machine comes apart and pretty much everything can go into the dishwasher. It makes cleaning a lot easier. I will continue to use this until something happens to it. It has been a great juicer for me and my family. I feel healthier when I use this machine. Pulp Setting Effectiveness The juice goes where the juice is suppose to go and the pulp where the pulp is suppose to go. The juicer pulls the juice out of the fruits and vegetables well. The pulp goes into the clear container. Stability While in Use It is very stable when using. Ease of Cleaning Some parts of this are a little messy, but it is pretty easy to rinse out and put in the dishwasher. When I first got this I made sure that it could go into the dishwasher. Durability Our juicing machine has held up well. Versatility/Number of Features There's nothing too fancy about it. It just does the job that it is suppose to do. I like that you can lift the spout up so that extra drops of juice don't drip all over the place. Design I thought that the design was good.

Juicing is so simple!

5

With all of the juicing craze that is going on, I decided that I needed to try it and after seeing how healthy Jack Lalanne was for his age, I knew that I would have to try his juicing machine out. This machine is really simple to use and perfect for someone who is just starting out, there is no need to buy a huge machine that cost a whole lot of money, this one works just perfect. Putting the fruits and vegetables in and turning them into the juice you love is easy, it is not difficult to push it down and it turns it all into juice in a matter of seconds. Cleaning up all of the pulp that comes out is relatively simple as well and the only down part is cleaning of the machine itself is kind of a pain, it is not that hard, just the pieces of the pulp at times get into small areas and they are not super easy to get out, so I use a toothbrush. The machine does not have a ton of features and does basically what you would expect it to do, and makes delicious juice.

Well worth the price

I don't use this as much as I should. It is easy to take apart and clean and the parts are dishwasher safe. My only dissatisfaction with it is getting the strainer clean. If you clean it with a sponge it tears the sponge to pieces. The best way to clean it would be with a brush before putting it in the dishwasher. The catch bin on the back is a good size and generally cleans easy. The pulp after juicing is quite dry, so it can get stuck in the corners of the bin. The bin does slightly discolor based upon what pulp is in the bin. Even after thorough washing, there is still a slight tint. The chute is wide enought to fit most items. Small seeds and pits are not an issue with the blades. I had never thought of juicing greens like lettuce or spinach before. This juicer extracts a tremendous amount of liquid from the greens, even without balling them into a tight ball. I don't have any other juicers to compare it too, but I would buy this one again if I needed to.

Gets the job done

This juicer is a good investment. Although you have to juice one item at a time I still think it is a good value for the price. The vegetables are nicely juiced and I feel like there is no juice leftover after I am finished. There are no bits of fruits in the mixture after juicing because all of the shreds of veggies go to the back of the juicer. I love this juicer, however it is a pain to clean. It takes me about 5-10 minutes cleaning out the inside of the juicer. To alleviate cleaning the veggie shreds in the back of the juicer I put in a walmart grocery bag so that I can dump the shreds when I am finished. All in all this juicer is worth the extra cleaning if you are looking to save a few coins. Pulp Setting Effectiveness Very good. I have no grains in my juice when I am finished. Stability While in Use It may be a little movement when you put in a carrot, etc. but I cut my carrots in half to alleviate some of that. Ease of Cleaning The strainer part is very difficult to clean because of the tiny shreds of vegetables. Running water through it helps a little but I haven't an affective way to clean this yet. Durability Good Durability although the latch where the juice come out could have been better attached. Versatility/Number of Features I really wish this juicer had more features. If you are looking for a juicer that has options try the breville juicer. It is a little on the expensive side but I believe it gives you various options. Design Design is pretty good. I don't have any dire complaints here.

Massive machine

3

I don't like leaving it out because it is so massive and ugly but its so massive and heavy that I can't really find a place to store it that would be convenient to take it out every day to juice. It does juice well but it's also so hard to clean. (You'll probably have trouble cleaning the pulp from any filter but this one seems especially hard) It's okay if you are going to leave it out to juice daily or will only use it once in a while but if you don't like leaving it out, it kind of sucks to store it and I wish I had found something smaller. It has basic setting and seems pretty durable and will probably last a long time without breaking down.
