Summary: This little device is simple and easy to use. It comes with a cone to juice limes and small lemons, and a larger cone to juice oranges and larger lemons. Just press down on the cone and its juice galore. If you're just juicing a lemon or two, then probably isn't the machine you want.
Juicer works great, easy to use, but container feels fragile

Summary: I got this unit for my mom whose beloved OJ juicer died after 13 years of service. She has been using this machine for 4 weeks straight as she makes fresh OJ every day, and so far these are her two complaints: *The 1L container feels very fragile and she is afraid that if she drops it one time, it...
Summary: I had been putting off getting a juicer because I was afraid it wouldn't get all the juice out and I'd be left wasting some fruit. I was completely wrong. This juicer has been wonderful and gets all the juice out.
Summary: Love this for making quick work of juicing limes for margaritas. Sure, it's not as sturdy as a professional citrus juicer, but it also costs a lot less. (On the other hand, I've had this for 5 years, and it still works as good as the first day I got it.
Summary: We used this juicer over the course of about two hours to juice enough lemons to produce over 40 cups of lemon juice...and it did an awesome job! The adjustable pulp filter worked well. My husband likes heavy pulp and it definitely let enough pulp through.
Summary: Extremely disappointed with this product. Purchased this juicer to use mostly for holiday cookie recipe that requires 8-10 lemons to be juiced for frosting. My friend and I are both physically disabled and as we get older even the simplest daily tasks have become increasingly more difficult.
Summary: This is a "light use" juicer. The design is nice but the motor gears are plastic. It is imperitive thst you closely examine the pulp separator, disassembling the plastic mechanisim for cleaning. If you make juice once or twice a month you might get a couple of years out of this juicer.
Summary: Worked great for the first three times I used it, then... nothing. It simply died. Took it apart thinking the switch may not be making contact while pressing down to juice. That wasn't the case. What I did find was really cheap plastic parts and a tiny motor.
