Summary: This product should not have been sent to the UK as it was 120v and had a US 2 pin plug,surely it should have come with an adapture.Buyer beware as it will cost £70 to return it to the states and black&decker do not want to know
Summary: Been using this juicer for 5 years, and it hasn't let me down. It's true that leafy greens don't work great. But they're ok. For harder vegis like carrots or turnips it works great. As mentioned before the entry slot is a bit small, medium size carrots go through, large ones must be split. All in all, good jucier for the price, but if you wanna be serious juicer, you may need a more expensive model.
Summary: I got this juicer from Wal-Mart in order to see how we would like juicing. It seemed less complicated than other juicers and the price was fair. I got pretty much what I expected. I did not experience undue mess as other reviewers and I found the assembly and clean-up to be easy. I was pleased that the juicer had only seven parts, including the motor base, cup and feed-pusher.
Summary: I am totally amazed at how cheap and bad this machine is. I read the directions and put it together correctly--as far as I can tell--yet bits of juice are still leaking out the sides when I juice. The worst part: this juicer emits noxious fumes during operation. I thought I was standing behind a truck. This thing is a piece of garbage. I want my money back.
Summary: This juicer was my first and I quickly discovered why it's good to spend more money on a better model. It leaked so much initially (and while I was juicing beets of all things) that I thought for sure it was defective, so I went back to the store to trade it in. I soon discovered that it's just a flaw with this model. It can get the job done but it makes a big mess and you have to chop everything smaller.
Summary: I've had this model for three days now. I'd been planning on making carrot juice with it: I bought the juicer, I then went to the store and bought enough carrots to supply me with a steady supply of carrot juice for a week. Upon taking the juicer home, I found that the carrots WOULD NOT fit into the juicer. I was simply amazed. The opening is just too small to be practical: I don't want to slice 15 carrots down the middle to get a 12oz glass of carrot juice.
Summary: I got this juicer as a gift. It will liquidize any fruit and vegetable. The only drawback is that the pulp still contain juice and had to scoop up the pulp and run it through the machine again only to spit out in the reservoir again. Also cleaning the blade and especially the screen is time consuming.
Summary: I got this juicer for Christmas. I really enjoyed having it. It was easy to assemble, use, and clean. Unfortunately one day the cutter/strainer component burst at the seam with a loud BANG, sending the juicer vibrating around the counter and scraping off strings of plastic from the inside of the machine.
